Trump’s Promotion of COVID Vaccines is Getting Mixed Reactions in MAGA Circles

Is Trump alienating parts of his base?

Published

When we look at a our nation as a whole, and specifically as it pertains to attitudes toward the COVID-19 pandemic, we often find that the two sides of the aisle have vastly different opinions on the whole thing.

A lot of this surely has to do with freedom, and how the left believes that everyone is entitled to a finite amount of it.  On the right, however, freedom is paramount.  It is to be protected and developed and ensured at all costs.  Every small infraction by an overzealous government is a step in the wrong direction, and fits into the “give them an inch” anecdote all too well.

So when the government began pushing the possibility of vaccine mandates, many on the right, (and specifically the far right), pushed back.  And hard.

This is where Donald Trump’s strong feelings on the subject seem to irk parts of the MAGA universe.

On two separate occasions this past week, Trump advocated for people to take the COVID-19 vaccine. On Sunday, crowds booed the former president when he told Bill O’Reilly that he’d taken a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot and was pro-vaccination. Trump doubled down on his stance during an interview with the conservative commentator Candace Owens on Wednesday, hailing the vaccine as “one of the greatest achievements of mankind.”

“No, the vaccine worked. But some people aren’t taking it. The ones that get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that don’t take their vaccine,” Trump told Owens.

“If you take the vaccine, you’re protected. Look, the results of the vaccine are very good. And if you do get it, it’s a very minor form. People aren’t dying when they take their vaccine,” he added.

The conservative media machine was not having it.

On social media, right-wing figures, such as the conspiracy theorist and InfoWars talk-show host Alex Jones and the recently subpoenaed “Stop the Steal” organizer Ali Alexander, came out in force to rebuke Trump over his position.

“Remember when Trump said you would be playing right into the Democrats hands by mocking the rushed, ineffective shot? Yeah, Joe Biden praises him and his booster shot,” Alexander wrote on his Telegram channel on December 23.

“Trump, stop. Just stop. Have your position (backed by Fauci) and allow us to have ours (which is backed by science). This losing is getting boomer level annoying,” Alexander wrote.

The former President is also tooting his own horn a bit, having himself presided over the work of Operation Warp Speed – something that even Joe Biden has been forced to praise him on.

Coca-Cola Blasted By Billboards Over Support of ‘Genocide’ Olympics

This is BRUTAL!

Published

on

In just a few weeks’ time, much of the world will have their eyes on Beijing.  No, not on account of the misinformation that they spread about the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, nor their forceful takeover of Tibet.  We won’t be keeping a keen eye on the CCP over the Hong Kong hostage situation, or their repeated advances on the sovereign nation of Taiwan.

Nope.  We’ll all be watching young men and women cruising around on ice skates and skis, as opposed to having a serious conversation about the literal genocide that China has been involved in over the course of the last several years.

Now, international mega-corporation Coca-Cola is taking some serious heat over their continued support of what’s become known as “The Genocide Olympics”.

A conservative media watchdog group launched a billboard campaign Thursday outside Coca-Cola’s Atlanta headquarters, calling on the soft drink giant to explain its sponsorship of the upcoming Beijing Olympics in light of China‘s human rights abuses.

Accuracy in Media accused the company of hypocrisy with a billboard displaying the phrase: “Why does Coke support genocide?”

And it’s not as though Coke remains apolitical…not in the least.

The group notes that Coke condemned its home state of Georgia for implementing a new Republican-authored voting law and supported Major League Baseball’s decision to strip Atlanta of the All-Star Game because of the law — yet the multinational remains a major sponsor of the Beijing Games, “despite the fact that China is the greatest source of evil in our world.”

The billboards were soon making the rounds on social media.

As of this writing, there has been no official response from Coca-Cola.
