Waking Times article condemns government for trying to condition people to believe that vaccination will grant them "freedom"
A Waking Times
article is condemning the narrative being pushed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) and mainstream media that Americans can have their freedom back
if they just roll up their sleeves and take the vaccine.
"It's science-based. It's sensible. You can hug your grandkids again. If you've been waiting to get a haircut, see the dentist, you can do that," former CDC Director Tom Frieden told CNN
The article hinted that the government is trying to condition the mind of the people that it can grant or revoke the freedom of the people based on whether or not they take the shot.
"We know that people want to get vaccinated so they can get back to doing the things they enjoy with the people they love," said CDC Director Rochelle Walensky, in a statement last week. "There are some activities that fully vaccinated people can begin to resume now in the privacy of their own homes."
Walensky's remark seemed innocent, but she was essentially telling people that they can't get back to doing the things they enjoy with the people they love unless they get vaccinated. She was effectively telling unvaccinated people that there are some activities they still can't do even in the privacy of their own homes.
Requiring a vaccine for "freedom" is exactly the opposite of "freedom," the article said.
"No person should be forced by government regulation or societal pressure to receive any medication or treatment, including vaccines, against his or her will. This is the very foundation of freedom," it added.
Mainstream pushing narrative that vaccines lead to freedom
The Waking Times
article also pointed out how mainstream media, as well as health professionals, were pushing the narrative that vaccines are needed for freedom. (Related: Do we need a vaccine "bill of rights," or does the Constitution already protect health freedom?
One example it listed was Leana Wen, an emergency physician and former health commissioner for Baltimore. In an interview with Chris Cuomo on CNN
, Wen expressed her discontent with states going back to normal without touting the vaccine as the reason for doing so.
"We need to make it clear to them (Americans) that the vaccine is the ticket back to pre-pandemic life," Wen said. "We have a very a very narrow window to tie reopening policy to vaccination status."
Wen noted that if everything has reopened, the government could no longer use the notion of getting back to normal as an incentive for people to get vaccinated. She said freedom must be limited, otherwise people won't line up to get the shot.
People don't really need an incentive to get vaccinated. What they need is an assurance that the vaccine is safe.
But the excuses given by health officials and vaccine manufacturers for every death following vaccination are hardly an assurance.
Number of deaths following vaccination continues to rise
Less than three months into the country's vaccination drive, data is showing that deaths linked to vaccinations are rising. The publicly available Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System
(VAERS) website shows 1,136 deaths through Feb. 26, although the CDC told the Epoch Times
in an email that as of March 8, there were already 1,637 deaths following vaccination. (Related: Compilation of recent stories and videos covering COVID vaccine injuries, side effects and DEATHS.
Out of the 1136 deaths recorded in VAERS, 94 (8.3 percent) died on the same day they got the shot, 150 (13.2 percent) died the day after, 105 (9.2 percent) died two days after and 68 (6 percent) died three days after. A total of 587 (51.7 percent) died within a week, 215 died within 7 to 13 days and 124 died within 14 to 20 days.
People over 60 made up 85.8 percent of the total deaths according to VAERS. There were five deaths among those aged 20 to 29; 10 in those aged 30 to 39; 23 in those aged 40 to 49; and 69 in those aged 50 to 59.
Countries from other parts of the world, Europe in particular, have already taken steps to prevent unnecessary deaths because of coronavirus vaccination.
Some 24 countries have temporarily halted or promised to halt, distribution of the AstraZeneca jab following reports of serious adverse reactions, including bleeding, blood clots and extreme drops of platelet count in the blood. No such cases had been reported in Sweden, but it still suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
The U.S., on the other hand, didn't blink despite having far more deaths that could be associated with vaccines. Instead, as the Waking Times
article pointed out, the mainstream media, the Big Tech and the government has continued to push the idea that the vaccine is 100 percent safe and that the Americans need it for freedom.
