The establishment continues to keep the country locked down amid coronavirus restrictions.
Dr. Anthony Fauci and other officials have stated that society will not reopen until a critical mass of people are vaccinated.
However, the New York Times was forced to make an embarrassing admission about the COVID vaccines.
The so-called mainstream media has tried to say that red states have handled the pandemic the worst.
The press has hounded Republican governors Ron DeSantis, Greg Abbott, and Kristi Noem while showering praise over Andrew Cuomo, Gretchen Whitmer, and Gavin Newsom.
But Cuomo had one of the worst death rates in the world and made the grievous mistake of putting COVID-positive patients back into nursing homes. In contrast, Governor DeSantis was effective in protecting his aged population in Florida.
Now as vaccinations have started to rollout, the New York Times was forced to admit that red states are actually outpacing blue states in administered vaccinations.
In a piece titled, “The Left’s Vaccine Problem,” David Leonhardt highlights the issues the left-wing busybodies and bureaucrats are encountering with the vaccine rollout.
“[T]here are clear success stories in places that few people would describe as progressive. Alaska and West Virginia have the two highest vaccination rates among U.S. states, with Oklahoma and the Dakotas also above average…Britain — run by Boris Johnson, a populist Conservative — has vaccinated more than 15 percent of residents. International patterns are rarely perfect, and this one has plenty of exceptions…So far, though, it’s hard to find many progressive governments that are vaccination role models,” Leonhardt writes.
“A common problem seems to be a focus on process rather than on getting shots into arms. Some progressive leaders are effectively sacrificing efficiency for what they consider to be equity…Some blue states have also created intricate rules about who qualifies for a vaccine and then made a big effort to keep anybody else from getting a shot. These complicated rules have slowed vaccination in both California and New York.”
Democrats’ obsession with diversity, inclusivity, and equality is actually hurting the people they claim they want to help the most – as is the case with almost all of their policies.
Fellow Times writer Ezra Klein said, “The parts of the country that pride themselves on taking Covid seriously and believing in government are not covering themselves in glory.”
California, Illinois, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island are all below average in their vaccination rates.
This was a big admission for the Times.
But at some point, it becomes impossible to deny the numbers.
