Democrat Gov. Declares Covid Emergency “Over”… Won’t Implement Mask Mandate

(Patriot Insider) – Colorado Governor Jared Polis (D) has declared the COVID emergency is over and that there is no reason for statewide mask mandates. During an interview with Colorado Public Radio on Friday, Polis said the vaccines have ended the pandemic and brought an end to the state of emergency.

Before you get too excited, Polis is just genuinely convinced that the vaccines are “highly effective.” He is not taking a stand for personal liberty and medical freedom.

On the contrary, Polis supports local mandates and doesn’t appear to be opposed to Denver’s recently adopted “vax or mask” mandates which require residents to show proof of vaccination before entering public spaces.

He also seems to believe that people who have not been vaccinated just haven’t gotten around to it rather than acknowledging the fact that many people don’t want the vaccine because they believe them to be unsafe, ineffective, pointless and experimental.

“Everybody had more than enough opportunity to get vaccinated,” Polis asserted. “Hopefully it’s been at your pharmacy, your grocery store, a bus near you, [or at] big events.”

“At this point, if you haven’t been vaccinated, it’s really your own darn fault.” This is true. There are people who are intentionally choosing to be vaccinated.

He did, however, admit that the “unvaccinated” won’t be persuaded to get the vaccines and also claimed that they are filling up hospitals.

“Those who get sick, it’s almost entirely their own darn fault,” he continued. “I don’t want to say that nobody [will get the virus if they’re] vaccinated, but it’s very rare. Just to put it in perspective, of the about 1,400 people hospitalized, less than 200 (or 16%) are vaccinated. And many of them are older or have other conditions. Eighty-four percent of the people in our hospitals are unvaccinated, and they absolutely had every chance to get vaccinated.”

Keep in mind, in order to be considered “vaccinated” a person has to have received all shots, including boosters. How many of the so-called “unvaccinated” are actually vaccinated but without boosters?

“And at this point, I think it’s almost like they made a deliberate decision not to get vaccinated,” he continued. “I still encourage everybody who hasn’t been vaccinated to get protected. And for those who are, make sure to get that booster after six months. The data shows it’s important and very likely even more so with this omicron variant.”

He did make a point to say that it’s not the government’s job to tell people “what to wear” however he has not instructed local governments to stand down.

“The emergency is over,” Polis commented. “You know, public health [officials] don’t get to tell people what to wear; that’s just not their job. Public health [officials] would say to always wear a mask because it decreases flu and decreases [other airborne illnesses]. But that’s not something that you require; you don’t tell people what to wear. You don’t tell people to wear a jacket when they go out in winter and force them to [wear it]. If they get frostbite, it’s their own darn fault.”

“If you haven’t been vaccinated, that’s your choice. I respect that. But it’s your fault when you’re in the hospital with COVID.”

It’s every American’s choice whether or not to take their chances with the virus or the vaccines. This is not an either or situation, however. Just because Americans choose not to get vaccinated does not mean they will automatically get the virus or suffer complications from the virus.

Healthy people are not in great danger from the virus. That’s the truth. If you want to “follow the science,” that’s the conclusion it will lead you to. We’re glad to see Polis at least acknowledge the government needs to butt out of Americans’ personal choices.

He, however, claims that those deciding not to get the vaccines are getting their information from an “alternate misinformation universe” that’s making them skeptical of masks and the shots.

“There are people that believe you and I are part of some massive conspiracy, Ryan,” Polis told show host Ryan Warner. “Some of them believe there is no COVID; some of them believe the vaccine doesn’t work; some believe that the vaccine has severe side effects. The truth is they’re in their own bubble, and it’s very hard to penetrate.”

Sorry Gov. Polis, the truth is you are the one who is peddling misinformation. The vaccines absolutely do have serious and sometimes fatal “side effects.” This is a fact that simply cannot be hidden.
