300,000 adults in Ireland have turned down the offer of a covid-19 jab. Tánaiste (deputy Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar told RTÉ last night that while refusing the jab is a “personal choice,” the reality is that “those choices have effects on other people”.
Yesterday Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Micheál Martin said that covid cases are rising again and that there is no guarantee that the 22 October phase of reopening will proceed as planned.
The government (and the Irish media) is blaming the rise in covid infections on the un-jabbed. Martin said that a decision to proceed with the October 22nd phase of reopening would be made early next week. According to RTÉ:
The Taoiseach said the Government wants to see more data and that it will reflect on the situation. “It’s very important that the public at large realise that Covid hasn’t gone away,” the Taoiseach said.
He said hospital numbers are higher than he would like them to be and this is having an impact. It was an “alert to all of us to knuckle down, refocus on this virus because it hasn’t gone away,” Mr Martin added.
It’s blackmail, plain and simple. The un-jabbed present no risk whatsoever to anyone, let alone those who have taken it. They’ve admitted that the jab doesn’t prevent you becoming infected with covid or transmitting it. Why on Earth then, would anybody want it?
Varadkar was lying through his teeth when he said that refusing the needle has “effects on other people.” They are desperate, so desperate, for every man, woman and child on Earth to take their medicine.
By threatening to delay the next phase of reopening in Ireland, the government is hoping that the jabbed will turn on the un-jabbed. They’ll get their wish.
The Irish Health Service will collapse this Winter. Just like the UK’s NHS, the Irish health system was designed to fail. But they’ll blame it on covid variants and the re-emergence of seasonal flu.
That is when they’ll come for the un-jabbed. A storm is coming. Batten down the hatches.
