If you listen to mainstream media, you would think every Democrat and liberal, regardless of race or creed, has been vaccinated.
It is Republicans and conservatives, specifically white Trump supporters, that are failing to take the jab.
Well, a new report put out by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) just blew that narrative right out of the water.
We Are Being Lied To…
Let me give you a few recent headlines or snippets from left-leaning publications…
POLITICO: “The Biden administration is casting conservative opponents of its COVID-19 vaccine campaign as dangerous and extreme, adopting a more aggressive political posture in an attempt to maneuver through the public health conundrum.”
Vanity Fair: “Joe Biden is done coddling conservatives and their anti-vaccine bulls**t.”
The Intelligencer: “The willfully unvaccinated are the newest Republican martyrs.”
The funny thing is, those reports are misleading at best and outright lies at worst.
The KFF data just obliterates those narratives completely.
The study states, “The percent of White people who have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose (48%) was roughly 1.3 times higher than the rate for Black people (36%) and 1.2 times higher than the rate for Hispanic people (41%) as of July 19, 2021.”
With growing spread of the Delta variant, COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, & deaths are rising.
Persistently lower vaccination rates among Black & Hispanic people compared to their White counterparts leave them at increased risk as the variant spreads.https://t.co/GnOnJed100 pic.twitter.com/IKDNdN5hk9

Here is another cruel little twist…
Among the states with the lowest vaccination rates are what Democrats would consider to be red states: Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
Do you know what else these states have that the media ignores? Large minority populations.
Issues & Insights also recently released information on some of the biggest anti-vaxxer movements in the country, writing, “The ‘dirty dozen’ of anti-COVID vaccine influencers compiled by one research group is made up of people such as: a Nation of Islam member, a regular columnist at the left-wing Huffington Post, the head of the Urban Global Health Alliance, a ‘holistic psychiatrist,’ a former owner of an organic farm, several alternative medicine quacks, and long-time anti-vaxxers including … Robert F. Kennedy Jr.”
The report continued, “Not exactly a bunch of right-wing Trump supporters.
“In fact, some in this ‘dirty dozen’ have targeted the black community with anti-vax messages.”
Like we said, at best, the media is being misleading. At worst, they are printing outright lies to target conservatives and Republicans.
