CNN host Don Lemon during his Wednesday prime time segment urged Americans to start “ shaming” plus shunning “ stupid” unvaccinated people. He told CNN co-host Chris Cuomo that will society must leave the particular unvaccinated “ behind” as they are ultimately “ harmful to the greater good. ”
The hugely provocative and controversial statements came during a outrageous conversation that compared taking Covid-19 vaccine to Botox treatments. Lemon suggested that people are usually fine not knowing what’s within Botox injections, so they should be unconcerned with what’s in the vaccine and ‘ trust’ the particular science. He also intended that all of the ‘ vaccine hesitant’ are Trump supporters , and seemed to blame the former president for people currently refusing the vaccine.
“ I think we have to stop coddling people when it comes to… the vaccines, stating ‘ Oh yea you can’t shame them. You can’t call them stupid, ‘ ” Lemon started the discussion.
“ Yes, they are. The people who assisted and abetted Trump are stupid because they believed their big lie , ” Lemon argued. And that’s whenever he gave his target audience of millions a audiences a call to action, which will without a doubt lead to deeply hostile connections for anyone actually following Lemon’s advice:
“ The people who are not getting vaccines who are believing the lies on the internet instead of science, that it is time to start shaming them or leave them at the rear of . ”
The point echoes some prior commentators who have begun to issue whether the unvaccinated should even have emergency medical access, specifically given in some states reports of ICU bed shortages.
Recent social networking videos have increasingly demonstrated such bizarre “ shaming” incidents nearly leading to fights or angry verbal exchanges and even people “ stalking” the unmasked or unvaxxed in order to “ call all of them out” …
“ Vax Americana wants to support the unvaccinated accountable for the public cost of their private choices, ” one recent Washington Post op-ed said.
In saying “ leave them behind” ” lemon ” appears to be also agreeing with those now arguing that this unvaccinated should be refused priority medical treatment at hospitals and clinics across the US, essentially creating a massive group of “ second-class citizens” which are segregated against – a development increasingly on display with “ red carpet” events and some public venues .
