Medved: Vaccine resistance will destroy Republican revival
Congressmember Jim Jordan asked Dr. Anthony Fauci when masks can come off and Americans can get their freedom back. Fauci answered as soon as the level of infection in the United States is low enough.
“My message is to get as many people vaccinated as quickly as we possibly can to get the level of infection in this country low that it is no longer a threat,” Fauci said. “That is when.”
Fauci said it’s not about liberty, it’s about public health.
KTTH’s Michael Medved told KIRO Radio’s Gee and Ursula Show that Jordan isn’t his favorite representative of the Republican party, nor of America. Medved referred to a new Monmouth poll that showed two thirds of Democrats have received at least one dose of the vaccine and many have received two. That’s double the rate for Republicans, as less than 30% of Republicans have received even one dose of the vaccine.
Medved doesn’t understand the vaccine resistance.
“It’s nuts and, by the way, it will destroy the long-term prospects of any kind of Republican revival because it’s know-nothing-ism,” Medved said. “The idea that maintaining social distancing, that trying to find public health guidelines, that this represents an assault on liberty or on freedoms. I don’t feel that my freedoms or yours have been shattered by the state of Washington.”
You can hear Michael Medved every week day from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. on KTTH. Also, listen to him join KIRO Radio’s Gee and Ursula Show every Friday.
