The COVID regime wants people locked down forever.
The American people are at their wit’s end with all of the arbitrary rules.
Now the Oscars made one move that proves Biden and the Democrats are terrified
Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate was nixed by the Supreme Court, but that wasn’t the worst of the Democrats’ problems.
Vaccine and mask mandates have become a political loser, and the Democrats are concerned about losing badly in the midterm elections.
They’re gradually attempting to pivot and roll back restrictions, and it’s being sold to the American people that they’ve been given back their freedom because the harsh restrictions worked so well.
Now the Academy Awards will not be mandating vaccine passports in order to attend the event.
The Hollywood Reporter wrote that “the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is planning not to mandate proof of vaccination (with or without a booster) in order to attend this year’s ceremony.”
The ceremony will still “require a negative PCR test or a negative rapid antigen test on the day of the event,” but no proof of vaccination is being mandated.
That’s a far cry from the chaotic virtual Academy Awards last year.
Now the show must go on, and Democrats are at a loss.
They’ve been so terrorized by the COVID regime, they’re terrified of resuming their normal lives.
The Hollywood Reporter said that one industry insider found it “shocking” that the Academy Awards would cater to “anti-vaxxers.”
The COVID restrictions have become a strange badge of honor for liberals.
They want to be patted on the head for their compliance.
The pivot by the Democrats is shameless and transparent.
Talking heads like CNN medical expert Leana Wen have done a 180 on the efficacy of cloth masks, and whether or not it makes sense to give the vaccine to children under five years old.
Congressman Hakeem Jeffries credited Biden with somehow defeating the virus with his policies.
“[T]he Omicron variant is in retreat. And that’s not by accident. That’s because under President Biden’s leadership a public health infrastructure was put into place, beginning with the American Rescue Plan – without a single Republican vote – to ensure that we can do everything possible to crush the virus. And that is what has been happening..”
Anyone paying attention knows that is complete nonsense.
Everyone is catching the much milder and much more contagious Omicron variant, and it has burned through the population.
Vaccines and boosters and masks don’t do much of anything against it.
Biden’s COVID interventions have been a disaster.
He paid people not to work, disrupted supply chains, and triggered record-high inflation.
But the Democrats have to carefully walk back the COVID hysteria because it is torpedoing them in the polls.
Watching celebrities gather in a theater that does not require the vaccine will be a clear symbol to the American people that the pandemic is effectively over.
