‘Tis the season of “severe illness and death” due to the omicron variant of the coronavirus. At least that’s the message from President Biden. Get vaccinated or die.
Oddly enough, Biden failed to mention the part about Omicron having very few symptoms. In fact, it is so mild it was discovered almost by mistake.
In case you missed it, Kevin Jackson wrote about the discovery of the Omicron variant.
According to The Telegraph, the South African doctor who first alerted authorities to the presence of the COVID-19 omicron variant reported that it presents “unusual but mild” symptoms.
Unusual but mild? Like breathing or sneezing? I joked on my radio show that something as simple as taking a deep breath will be considered a symptom of some version of Wuflu. How ridiculous this scam has become.
Dr. Angelique Coetzee, a board member of the South African Medical Association, first noticed otherwise healthy patients demonstrating unusual symptoms on Nov. 18.
“Their symptoms were so different and so mild from those I had treated before.”
Hmm, milder than having no symptoms at all. Note that “no symptoms at all” was the case with the original version. Even better, for some the symptoms are only loss of smell and/or taste.
It presents mild disease with symptoms being sore muscles and tiredness for a day or two not feeling well. So far, we have detected that those infected do not suffer the loss of taste or smell. They might have a slight cough. There are no prominent symptoms. Of those infected some are currently being treated at home.”
A slight cough? Perhaps a slight cough is, wait for it…just a sight cough?! But given the notoriety one gets from discovering new versions of Wuflu, why not say that symptoms of cold or flu is a new version of Wuflu?
So why the doom & gloom from Biden?
Well, Biden needs us to live in fear. Because a nation afraid just might continue to let Democrats get away with their assault on America. Thus, Biden sent out a message intending to scare the nonvaxxed into drinking the Kool-Aid.
As Fox News noted:
“I want to send a direct message to the American people: Due to the steps we’ve taken, omicron has not yet spread as fast as it would have otherwise done,” Biden said.
“But it’s here now, and it’s spreading, and it’s going to increase … We are looking at a winter of severe illness and death for the unvaccinated – for themselves, their families and the hospitals they’ll soon overwhelm,” he added. “But there’s good news: If you’re vaccinated, and you have your booster shot, you’re protected from severe illness and death.”
Zients repeated the warning the following day while giving an update from the COVID response team.
“We are intent on not letting omicron disrupt work and school for the vaccinated. You’ve done the right thing, and we will get through this,” he said. “For the unvaccinated, you’re looking at a winter of severe illness and death for yourselves, your families and the hospitals you may soon overwhelm.”
But Biden didn’t get the response he was counting on. In fact, the outcry is growing louder and louder.
Critics took to social media to mock the White House’s message of death, with some referring to Biden as the “Grim Reaper” and others declaring that Biden saying he was going to “shut down the virus” sounded a lot different than “illness and death.”
“We are all in this together unless you are in the outgroup in which case you gonna die,” wrote Fox News contributor Ben Domenech, while former communications director for the 2020 Trump campaign Tim Murtaugh suggested the messaging wouldn’t help Democrats going into 2022.
“President Biden’s warning of a ‘winter of severe illness and death’ makes President Jimmy Carter’s ‘malaise’ speech urging Americans to lower expectations seem a cheerful upper by contrast. How do Democrats run as the party of ‘severe illness and death’? This is madness,” wrote former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Other critics echoed his Jimmy Carter comparison.
Concerns over the omicron variant of the coronavirus have grown as it is set to become the dominant variant in the U.S. due to its high rate of transmission. Despite it reportedly not being as a serious as the delta variant, a number of universities, schools and businesses have decided to close or return to virtual learning.
All this for a variant that didn’t even make anyone feel all that bad. That’s why experts call leftism a mental disease.
