A George Washington University professor and former president of Planned Parenthood suggested that the Biden administration to full Stalin and deprive Americans of their constitutional and civil rights so they will be “incentivized” to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Dr. Leana Wen, public health professor, made the suggestion in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo in mid-March, though a clip of the segment only started going viral on social media Thursday and Friday.
Claiming “that the vaccine is the ticket back to pre-pandemic life” for Americans, Wen said “we have a very narrow window to tie reopening policy to vaccination status because otherwise, if everything is reopened, then what’s the carrot going to be? How are we going to incentivize people to actually get the vaccine?”
“So that’s why I think the CDC and the Biden administration needs to come out a lot bolder and say, ‘If you’re vaccinated, you can do all these things, here are all these freedoms that you have.’ Because otherwise, people are going to go out and enjoy these freedoms anyway,” she added.
This week, CNN reported that the White House is “working on creating a set of standards for people to prove they’ve been vaccinated against” the virus, citing an administration official.
The official noted further that the Biden regime is working with an array of companies on developing the standards, to include non-profits and big tech, though “they are likely still weeks away from being finalized,” CNN added, quoting the unnamed official.
The CNN report also claimed that several federal agencies “are engaged in conversation and planning,” all of which is being coordinated by the White House, “as this kind of system will play a role in multiple aspects of life, including potentially the workforce.”
Oddly, Wen also claimed in a separate interview with Cuomo recently that despite more Americans being vaccinated — and thus immunized — the country will see another spike in COVID positives.
“We are on the cusp of a fourth surge that we’ve been dreading, and we see that — you mentioned 15 or so states that are seeing an increase in the number of infections already,” she said. “We now have these more transmissible variants becoming dominant here in the U.S. very quickly.”
She blamed states for lifting mask mandates, though the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a study — to almost no media coverage — on the anniversary of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s controversial ‘don’t wear a mask’ statement showing they had nearly no effect on decreasing mortality rates from the disease, let alone infections (note highlighted portions):
During March 1–December 31, 2020, state-issued mask mandates applied in 2,313 (73.6%) of the 3,142 U.S. counties. Mask mandates were associated with a 0.5 percentage point decrease (p = 0.02) in daily COVID-19 case growth rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.1, 1.5, 1.7, and 1.8 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01 for all). Mask mandates were associated with a 0.7 percentage point decrease (p = 0.03) in daily COVID-19 death growth rates 1–20 days after implementation and decreases of 1.0, 1.4, 1.6, and 1.9 percentage points 21–40, 41–60, 61–80, and 81–100 days, respectively, after implementation (p<0.01 for all). Daily case and death growth rates before implementation of mask mandates were not statistically different from the reference period.
And on Friday the CDC said that vaccinated Americans can fly internationally without worrying about quarantining or testing before and after flights.
The agency cited “rapidly evolving” data on vaccinated people as the reason for the new recommendation.
