The Current State of the Vax Debate Summed up in 2 Memes

It’s been a while since I’ve touched on Rona. Frankly, I wish I took better notes over the last 2 years for posterity but also to look back someday and remind myself of how utterly disastrously this has been handled around the world. Konstantin Kisin did a pretty good job of capturing some of the details is this long thread. Definitely worth the read.

What’s amazing to me, still to this day, is how easily swayed the sheeple are whenever the goal posts are moved in the middle of the game by the so-called experts and those in power. It’s like they all suffer from permanent, long-term memory loss.

One minute, we’re flattening the curve. The next, we’re tracking mortality rates.  Then it’s antibody counts.  Then infection rates.

Staying home and avoiding Asian businesses is rooted in hatred and racism. Then it’s selfish and irresponsible to want to go outside.

Masks don’t work. Masks are life savers.

Ventilators per capita are a thing.  Then it’s hospital beds.

Social distancing matters, except when BLM and Lollapalooza needs to be.

Only conspiracy theorists believe in man-made, gain of functionality manipulation in Wuhan labs. Now Lord Fauci may have knowingly helped fund that research all along.

Don’t trust a rushed vaccine, as long as it’s put forth by the Trump administration. Now Vax passports are likely to be required for interstate US travel, as it already is in Australia and many European countries.

So where are we today?  More and more US industries and businesses are moving toward mandatory vaccination as a condition of employment or admission.  States are moving back to mandatory masking in schools and public spaces. 

But most alarming of all seems to be the vitriol propagated NOT by government or health super-powers, but by ordinary citizens turning against grown adults choosing to make their own healthcare decisions for themselves and their families. 

The narrative has seemed to turn, once again, from praising miracle vaccines which which were supposed to help limit the spread of the Delta to the unvaccinated actually causing its spread and prolonged endurance.  And the icing on the proverbial statist crap cake is the notion that the vaxed are doing it for OUR protection!  And that we owe them our thanks, respect, and obedience.

Thus, I give you the 2 memes which perfectly sum up the absurdity of the landscape today.


ABBOTT AND COSTELLO’S ‘WHO’S BEEN VACCINATED?’

Bud: ‘You can’t come in here!’

Lou: ‘Why not?’

Bud: ‘Well because you’re unvaccinated.’

Lou: ‘But I’m not sick.’

Bud: ‘It doesn’t matter.’

Lou: ‘Well, why does that guy get to go in?’

Bud: ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’

Lou: ‘But he’s sick!’

Bud: ‘It’s alright. Everyone in here is vaccinated.’

Lou: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’

Bud: ‘Yes.’

Lou: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’

Bud: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’

Lou: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re vaccinated.’

Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’

Lou: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’

Bud: ‘But they can still get sick.’

Lou: ‘So what the heck does the vaccine do?’

Bud: ‘It vaccinates.’

Lou: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread covid?’

Bud: ‘Oh no. They can spread covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’

Lou: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look. I’m not sick.

Bud: ‘Ok.’

Lou: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’

Bud: ‘That’s right.’

Lou: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’

Bud: ‘Certainly.’

Lou: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’

Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’

Lou: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’

Bud: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’

Lou: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’

Bud: ‘That’s fine.’

Lou: ‘Now I can go in?’

Bud: ‘Absolutely not?’

Lou: ‘But I have a mask!’

Bud: ‘Doesn’t matter.’

Lou: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’

Bud: ‘I know.’

Lou: So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ….If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’

Bud: ‘Take it easy buddy.’

Lou: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’

Bud: ‘No, it’s still good.’

Lou: ‘But I can’t come in?’

Bud: ‘Correct.’

Lou: ‘Why not?’

Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’

Lou: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’

Bud: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’

Lou: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’

Bud: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’

Lou: ‘But I’m not sick!!’

Bud: ‘You can still get them sick.’

Lou: ‘So then masks don’t work!’

Bud: ‘Masks work quite well.’

Lou: ‘So how in the heck can I get vaccinated people sick if I’m not sick and masks work?’

Bud: ‘Third base.’

And…scene…
