Daily Beast Blames Trump Supporters for Lack of Herd Immunity

Some doctors have been hesitant to recommend the HPV vaccine for boys and girls.

The Daily Beast, a progressive publication, is claiming that Americans who voted for Donald Trump are entirely to blame for a lack of herd immunity to COVID-19 in the general population.

“White Republican vaccine resistance to COVID-19 is rooted in neither historical nor contemporary proof of discrimination, at least according to a CBS poll that found Republican vaccine resistance far outpaces other groups,” author Kali Holloway wrote. “Instead, the unwillingness to get the preventative remedy rests primarily in “mistrust of the government” and the belief that “it’s still too untested/I’m waiting to see what happens.”

COVID-19 is a fairly new disease. There is much that is not known about it and new mutations are already causing problems in many parts of the world. Even CNN has acknowledged that it is possible to get COVID-19 after getting vaccinated against it. However, these facts don’t matter to activists eager to push a certain narrative. That isn’t stopping Holloway from telling her readers that white Trump supporters should be blamed for a possible future COVID-19 outbreak because many of them are rightly hesitant to try out a brand-new, not fully tested vaccine.

Ironically, white conservatives aren’t the only ones planning on skipping out on COVID-19 vaccines. A recent poll showed that 28% of African Americans don’t plan on getting vaccinated either. Concerns about the efficacy and safety of the vaccines, coupled with long-standing mistrust of government officials, are leading millions of African-Americans to avoid the brand-new vaccines, at least for the time being.

Another poll found that 20% of Hispanic respondents weren’t planning on getting vaccinated. Misinformation about the vaccine, coupled with stories of people who have had adverse reactions, are leading reasons why many Hispanics aren’t getting the shot.

An unbiased journalist would do the research, consider who is skipping out on the vaccine and why, and offer a rational take on what could happen if a large percentage of the population doesn’t get the COVID-19 vaccine. However, mainstream media outlets seem to be far more interested in promoting a particular agenda than actually reporting facts.

The Daily Beast makes it clear that only white Republicans should be blamed for a resurgence in COVID because the condition there have been more COVID-19 deaths in the African American and Hispanic communities than in white communities. According to the article, whites who don’t want to get vaccinated don’t care about the lives of others because, after all, whites have easier access to vaccines than non-white communities.

The move to pin the blame on a potential resurgence in COVID-19 cases on the former President and his supporters is not only factually inaccurate but a slap in the face to tens of millions of people who should have a right to make their own medical decisions without interference. The only thing the Daily Beast is accomplishing here is stirring up more race-based division. Then again, that’s likely part of the plan.

  1. Why do people spend so much time making stuff up. Only a fool would believe this nonsense. I just don’t get it.

  2. You know back in the day of real news journalism ad news broadcasters , they read you the news of the day as it happened , not as they want you to believe it happened, or how they add their own opinions thus clouding what’s real

    • Not quite right, Wharf Rat. The Daily Beast only REPORTS( and endorses) the stupidity of the democrats that they display EVERYDAY! LOL!!!

  3. When will these HATERS stop blaming EVERYTHING on white people??? Especially ones that are Trump supporters!! Enough already!! Because of this so called “journalist” making up this garbage, it is so obvious this rag publication, and others like them, their SOLE purpose is to keep up racial discord and to keep deflecting away from what the democratic party is doing to our nation!!! They have no shame and refuse to see the REAL truth!!! Just pathetic ….

  4. Would you actually expect the democraps accept credit for anything that they do wrong ? Fat chance !
    Look at the Southern Border situation going on now, for one example ! Wanna-be president biden announced to the world that WHEN he was able to “secure” the Presidency , America would have OPEN borders ! Now, since he has stolen the office, he is back tracking and trying to deny his own words, and blame another of his mistakes on President Trump !
    Actually, I am surprised the democrap ‘leaders’ have not declaired biden as incompetent yet, and replaced him with their other idiot, harris ! Replace one fool with an even bigger fool ? It’s going to be an awfully LONG time before the next election!

    • They just dont have time to except credit for the mistakes they make.(planned)
      They are very very busy trying to take credit for things they never consided or had any involvment in whats so ever. My goodness have some faith will you, they might just screw up and do something right and forget to take the blame for it.

  5. OMG—-it’s always republicans and Trump–for everything! What are they going to do when we take control
    in 2022 and Trump wins 2024?? A site for sore eyes!!! LOL
