Florida Governor Ron DeSantis made a comment this week that could get him banned on social media outlets.
His comment was honest, but it goes against the narrative that Democrats want to have allowed on sites like Facebook and Twitter.
DeSantis stated that to be “honest,” the vaccines are not stopping the spread.
Immediately after taking office, Joe Biden and the media were both complicit in telling people that you could not be infected if you had the vaccine (and then the booster).
Well, now we know that is not the truth.
While the vaccine may prevent serious illness, it is not stopping infections outright.
We have seen how the Omicron variant has torn through this White House, with breakthrough case after breakthrough case.
The same can be said in Congress, where dozens of members have tested positive after getting the vaccine and the booster.
To that point, DeSantis stated, “With omicron, the vaccines are not stopping the spread. That’s clear.
“If you look at who’s being infected, vaccinated, boosted, they’re all being infected.
“It didn’t stop it.
“It doesn’t provide sterilizing immunity, and I think that you just have to be honest with people about that.”
When DeSantis was asked if he is giving up on the vaccine, he gave an adamant “No,” but that was not his point.
He was just trying to be honest with people that we need to realize that at this point, therapeutics are just as important, if not more important, than the vaccine.
Vaccine or not, there are going to be infections, and we need to be able to treat them.
DeSantis stated, “I think it’s much better to just be realistic about what the data is telling us, in terms of the utility for reducing severity versus trying to claim that it’s somehow sterilizing, like a measles vaccine or something like that.”
He added, “I’m fine saying, Here’s everyone who’s COVID-positive regardless of treatment.
“But then also say, Here are the people that we’re actually treating for COVID, because that gives us a better indication of the clinical consequences for something like omicron.”
What a crazy idea… the government actually being honest with people.
The idea DeSantis continues to push is the same as it has always been… protect the most vulnerable and let’s keep this country open for business.
We have to live with it now… we can no longer be held prisoner to COVID.
