Not vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine? Democratic voters support harsh measures against you

| January 16, 2022

Rasmussen Reports addresses a polling done related to the government’s COVID-19 efforts. Naturally, responses broke down along party lines. Most of the Democrat voters supported the vaccine mandate plans. However, most of the Republicans did not support these vaccine mandates. Democratic voters tend to also support harsher methods, like fining those who are not vaccinated for COVID-19.

From the Rasmussen Reports:

– Fifty-eight percent (58%) of voters would oppose a proposal for federal or state governments to fine Americans who choose not to get a COVID-19 vaccine. However, 55% of Democratic voters would support such a proposal, compared to just 19% of Republicans and 25% of unaffiliated voters.

– Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democratic voters would favor a government policy requiring that citizens remain confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Such a proposal is opposed by 61% of all likely voters, including 79% of Republicans and 71% of unaffiliated voters.

– Nearly half (48%) of Democratic voters think federal and state governments should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. Only 27% of all voters — including just 14% of Republicans and 18% of unaffiliated voters — favor criminal punishment of vaccine critics.

– Forty-five percent (45%) of Democrats would favor governments requiring citizens to temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine. Such a policy would be opposed by a strong majority (71%) of all voters, with 78% of Republicans and 64% of unaffiliated voters saying they would Strongly Oppose putting the unvaccinated in “designated facilities.”

– While about two-thirds (66%) of likely voters would be against governments using digital devices to track unvaccinated people to ensure that they are quarantined or socially distancing from others, 47% of Democrats favor a government tracking program for those who won’t get the COVID-19 vaccine.

One common theme, seen in those results, is the desire for many Democrats to exert control over what should be personal choice. Rasmussen Reports has details here. You could also read the list of questions asked.

The scarlet letter.
Fucking Nazis will have you tatooed.

In other words, 50%+/- of Democrats never read an actual history book. Or the Constitution.

This is making me sick to my stomach.

What you just deduced is the real virus afflicting our nation.
I too have digestive symptoms.

These people are not Democrats, the Democratic Party was at one time a viable political party that espoused open minded discussion of issues and actual liberalism. I didn’t always agree with them but they were Americans and at one time most of them actually cared about the working class. What we have now is illiberal, anti American communist’s that call themselves Democrats. The Democratic Party lives on in name only, what they have become is reprehensible. Not many real Dems left.

SIG HEIL, Show me your papers. Was riding back from my yogurt/ice cream dancing place with my friend last night who voted for the supreme ruler and is a liberal, and she sure can dance at 80 years young and tells me that she is very dissapointed with the new socialist regime and asks me if I think that Pres Trump will get in in 24. Am getting used to the new commenting site.

The same pols wanting people to show vaccination passports to leave the house also screech against Voter ID which further proves to me that liberalism is a Mental Disorder!

Fellow Republicans,
go ahead and voluntarily get yourselves vaccinated and boostered,
not because I say so, but for 2 obvious reasons.

1 – SEVERITY of covid symptoms for those vaccinated, compared to those without.
Hospital % numbers for inpatient, ICU, and ventilators are proof.
This is especially true for those of us with what are now called “co-morbidities”.
Meaning, if you are old, fat, and/or sick.

If that’s not enough for you, then
2 – DONALD TRUMP TOLD YOU TO.

BennSue

I’m always hesitant, like the Founding Fathers, when someone tells me to do something. My gut reaction is HELL NO. There’s lot of things leaders say to do; just because they say it, doesn’t make it right, true or legitimate.

MarineDad61

BennSue,
Sure.
That #2 is for the hard core far right types here.
Funny how it’s follow Trump on everything else, but not this.
Hey, I see the new red negative number
and thumb down are both working.
lol

BennSue,
Real world, 1 of our County Commissioners is now dead.
81, old, fat, not so sick, anti mask, anti vax,
caught it at a County meeting (verified),
tried to suck it up at home, until he couldn’t breath right,
then went to the hospital, and didn’t last long.
Local whackos now claim
the hospital and doctors conspired to kill him.
UGH.

Just a little reality check for all the thin-skulled morons whose family tree is a bamboo shaft
LIFE EXPECTANCY ALL RACES – MALE
US of A: 76.3

With versus from, it’s a thing. Stay-tis-ticks be a b-word, eh?

Get the shot, don’t get the shot. You decide with your Doc. Don’t listen to me, and certainly don’t listen to the news, for anydamnthing.

MarineDad61

Roh-Dog,
For my area, it’s 93% UN-vaccinated
occupying the ICU and ventilators in the hospitals
in my county and 2 neighboring counties.
Commissioner Ames is (was) 1 of them.

I don’t have the time to refute every part of this statement. You know if this was the case the un-jabbed would be dying en masse, right? Like 93% more, give-or-take.

Just like how according to the Branch Covidians, us anti-maskers should have been dead months ago!

1st ever red -2. Badge o’ honor. lol 🙂

Considering this is not really an isolated incident / mindset,
https://www.miamiherald.com/news/coronavirus/article257335847.html
I’d say the “whackos” might just be on to something..

Poetrooper

Right out of the old Soviet playbook for those who dissent from government orthodoxy…

Fyrfighter

Soviet, Nazi, two sides of the same coin..

Quoted from another thread:

Posting General Order #1- Don’t be a Dickweed

Posting General Order #2- Don’t make others have to point out that you are being a Dickweed.

MarineDad61

SFC D,
I only suggested to go get it voluntarily,
to lessen the SEVERITY, and likelihood of ICU, ventilator, or death, when you get infected.
That’s called looking out for fellow man… and also you.
If that’s being a dickweed,
then it’s not the 1st inconvenient truth to be received poorly
by farrightwing types here.
Don’t be an Ames.

SFC D

I’m fully vaccinated and recovering from Covid. As are my wife and son. Spare me your platitudes. You’re here for the spotlight and attention, nothing more.

Odie

I am voluntarily choosing not to get the shot. If anybody wants to get it, fine. Go get it.

If one chooses not to get the shot, fine. Don’t get it.

Very simple actually. Life choices. Good, bad or indifferent.

The Dead Man

I will admit I at least appreciate you’re less verbose than the other wumao poster.

LOCK THEM DOWN!!! IT’S TEH COVID!!! THEY ARE TRYING TO KILL ME AND TAKE EVERYTHING THAT I AM ENTITLED TO AWAY FROM ME!!! MASK UP!!! QUARANTINE FOR ANOTHER 22 MONTHS!!! MORE JABS FOR THE FILTHY ONES!!!

rgr769

Do you mask up for those Antifa circle-jerk parties in Mom’s basement.? And do you require proof of vaccination for the Chicom flu?

rgr769

Also, is there thorough handwashing after the Dutch-rudder sessions? As failure to do so could lead to spread of the disease.

Roh-Dog

I’ll show you a jab.

It’s a fetish…

I will happily send you all my used masks, Tootsie!

Count me among the Few that are willing to engage in Clownery Most Foul if any of the above is enacted.

Some of us are waaayyyyy more willing to be uncomfortable than you, ya tyrant fks.

Strangely erotic

Fyrfighter

What’s truly disturbing is the numbers of “republicans” willing to go along with these ideas.. The number of dems that are isn’t surprising at all.. and they call US fascist.. (seems the last time there were “designated facilities” for those deemed a threat to the nation, a dem was president as well.. coincidence???

Only Army Mom

Fyrfighter – this is something that has caught my attention as well. Right here at TAH we have examples, with statements like – ‘just get the jab because you’re protecting others’. That argument works, but only as a prima facie, predicated on the idea of achieving mass immunization and herd immunity. That argument falls apart when the reality that the vaccinated are still susceptible and still transmitting the virus.

SFC D

I’m thinking that’s because this vaccine is not truly a vaccine in the traditional sense, in that a vaccine PREVENTS the spread of a disease, as with smallpox, polio, malaria, etc. This “vaccine” is more of a prophylactic dose of medication to reduce the effects of the disease. Our betters at the federal level even changed the definition of the word “vaccine” to fit the narrative. And yet they wonder why trust in our government is low.

Fyrfighter

Very true both of you. Another point is that while the jab MAY reduce the severity of the disease when one gets it, those that have gotten the jab actually shed a HIGHER viral load (they spread MORE virus to others) than those that didn’t.. So I’m not exactly sure how that’s “protecting others”

Mason

That’s what I’ve been saying for a while. Continuing to call it a vaccine undermines both the COVID vaccine as well as other vaccines in general. It’s a treatment, not a vaccine.

I’m twice vaxxed, but I’ll be skipping any boosters.

Hack Stone

So, we’re not doing the “My body, my choice” thing anymore?

Poetrooper

Hack Stone does realize that asking such a reasonable question does make him a rightwing fanatic in the eyes of our self-declared moral arbiter, MarineDud61, does he not?

Odie

On the bright side, at least he didn’t bring up a gateway pundit article.

Whoops, did I type that outloud?

SFC D

So, just for the sake of argument.. what if there was a Gateway Pundit article about JRM…

Since you asked…
TGP would give JRM the same
“Nathan Philips is a Vietnam Veteran” phony enabler treatment.
TGP was forced to make a correction (still up today), and then TGP calls out WashPost here for making the error, although TGP eagerly went along with it.

-3 on the hospital statistics……
says plenty about the existence of fuxtix here.
Keep yourselves alive…
and don’t pass it off to others when you get it.

SFC D

You forgot “fuxtix”.

MarineDad61

Hack Stone,
Good point.
The abortion issue brings out the worst, of both sides.
I never understood how it ever became a polarizing partisan political issue.

Veritas Omnia Vincit

We libertarians (note the small l) are still doing that “thing”…my body my choice means the government can’t compel me to do anything with my body to save either myself or anyone else…

If I own my body deciding to get the jab is a personal choice, deciding to donate a kidney is a personal choice, and deciding whether or not to carry a kid to term is a personal choice…and the government can fuck right off on telling folks otherwise…

MarineDad61

Hack Stone,
Ahhhhhhh, see whatcha started?
Pro choice.
Pro life.
Anti choice.
Anti life (Pro death).
Remember, Glenn Beck fired (now) Fox talkface hottie Tomi Lahren, for being pro choice.
Not on vax, but for being in favor of abortion.

So, to answer the trolling by Poefibber below,
I am double pro choice.
Pro choice on vax.
Pro choice on borsh.
Just like Fox boner generator Tomi. 🙂

Replace COVID with HIV and see if they respond the same.

A Proud Infidel®™

I wonder just how many of the politicians pimping the vaccine own stock in Pfizer and Moderna?

USAFRetired

I saw an article earlier today that the AFL-CIO is unhappy that the SCOTUS struck down the mandate..

How about AFL-CIO force all there members to take the vax or pay extra for their dues that covers healthcare if they really think its a safety issue

Odie

Dianawest.net has good articles on the coof.

Actually, she has good articles on many possible topics of interest.

Ex-PH2

Oh, just tell them to shut up and get a life.

RetiredDevilDoc8404

They howl “My body, my choice.” Loud and long when it fits their cause, yet when push comes to shove their hypocrisy burns through and shows them for the control freaks they seek to be. Vaccination against viruses is at the very best a crapshoot, and for primitive organisms they damn sure give the virologists who try to predict their behavior fits; how many times have they gotten the flu vaccine wrong? If someone makes an informed choice about their health, it’s on them; it’s not for politicians to be making those choices for anyone, most of them aren’t fit to clean up behind the elephants in a circus parade let alone make medical decisions for anyone but themselves.

USMC Steve

As I have said before, and they appear to confirm by their actions, if you are a socialist democrat, or support them, you are a fascist and an enemy of the republic. Not just the politicians, but the average person who falls in line for that party. But then, it goes all the way back to our beginning. Most of the southern states during the revolution supported the British, and their demographics show they were mostly dem, or what passed for dem in those days. They have remained pretty consistent in that too.
