“It’s Time to Start Blaming Unvaccinated Folks
– Not the Regular Folks” – Alabama
GOP Governor Dehumanizes
Unvaccinated People

Original Article

Alabama Governor Kay Ivey (R) turned her ire toward unvaccinated people on Friday and blamed them for the rise in Covid cases. Kay Ivey dehumanized unvaccinated people and put a target on their backs. Ivey referred to vaccinated people as “regular folks” – so unvaccinated people are now “others” – this rhetoric is dangerous and must be denounced. “Folks are supposed to have common sense. But it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down,” Ivey told reporters in Birmingham.


This pig decides to go full Democrap with the message that the unvaccinated are subhuman, and the cause of the current upsurge in COVID. The evidence does not support this, but maybe we should just line up for our tattoos and yellow stars. Perhaps a quick trip to the showers, you blowhard bag of trash?

If it wasn't for the TV I wouldn't even know there WAS a virus. I've seen nothing of it except I was sick for a few days in Feb 2020. I've seen no corpses on the streets, no wagons with guys yelling to bring out our dead, no zombies staggering around (except the drug heads), nothing. If this is a pandemic its a pretty pathetic one. Every problem has been the direct result of government action, not pandemic action. Though in a few years we may be seeing those bodies and wagons when those who got the depopulation shot start dropping dead. So if I'm not regular folks, fine. Never much relished the idea of being a sheep anyway.

Sadly many are rolling over and leaving freedom liberty and our rights to make our own choices. Give in to fear and fear you have. The jab will not save you from catching the China flu. It only supposedly reduces symptoms but in reality it is a bioweapon that will eat your body from the inside slowly and you will die prematurely. The vax does to a body what ethanol does to an engine that’s designed to run on gas not ethanol. It eats all of the River up and in time it fails totally.

Just perhaps a rise in number of cases of covid throughout the United States may be due to the fact that streams of people are walking across our southern border who are not tested for any disease at all, and then these same untested people are being shipped by our government throughout the Unites States! Is anyone noting whether or not there has been an increase in the number of tuberculosis cases throughout the United States because of our open borders? How come a century ago out government was sophisticated enough to have people come first to Ellis Island where they would be thoroughly tested for any health problem before they were allowed to enter our country? Was our government more caring then or now?

I need a little help from you Alabamians or Southerners: is “folks” this and “folks” that really the way people speak down south? Because after Obama and Hillary, two Chicagoans, who used the word “folks” constantly it was obvious that it was a focus group attempt to sound warm and approachable. In other words, manipulative and it could be a tell that Ivey is herself a Progressive player because, at least in the north, no one speaks that way.

Blame them for what???? This is all bull from the beginning. People got wise and realized that COVID is bullish#t and is getting on with their lives. So, the democrats want to plant fear in the U.S. again and called it something different....Defiant Variant (?). What is pathetic, no one is dying from it so they only mention cases only. Who cares about cases?? More people are dying of the vaccine then the virus. Wake up America, we are all being had.

I’m in Alabama and I don’t know what to say. Granny Ivey has run for every political office for years, and finally attained the high prize of governor. She has never struck me as particularly bright, nor a leader. I’m not sure who is behind her. As for “folks.” I don’t hear that word in regular conversation.

#9 I was born, raised and live in the South. We generally use the word "people" rather than "folks." People tend to use the word "folks" when they are trying to sound "Southern" and don't know how....or they are "talking down" to people they look down on. That this governor is using the word is a tell that she is a liberal democrat at heart.

I’ve not taken the jabs but I also have not had the virus. So how am I endangering anyone? And I still don’t know a single person who has had the virus. My understanding is that the jabs change one’s immune system so that it only attacks the original covid virus and stops the immune system from attacking any other viruses. Which is exactly why so many who have had the jabs are getting the Delta variant. This was reported last year but was ignored by the enemedia. At the time, those immunologists and virologist said that any new variant cases would be blamed on those who didn’t get the jabs rather than where it belonged - on the jabs themselves. And that it would be used to shut us down again. And here we are.

There’s a full-court press on by the news media in the state urging, shaming, and goading the governor into taking some action on the virus. I don’t believe their motive is altruistic but rather intended to drive a wedge between her and conservative voters. It’s very odd but an almost nationally ubiquitous phenomenon: even the most conservative states have media organs that are hard leftist. I am perplexed as to why a conservative alternative has not taken foot.

I know a few people who've had COVID, some older, and others a few years younger. Everyone was sick for a few days, then recovered and went on with their lives. On the other hand, I know several people who've had severe reactions to the vaccine, including one death that occurred right around the time I was eligible for the jab. I also know people who've been vaccinated with only minor symptoms. What to do, what to do.

I suppose she didn't read the article yesterday about who isn't getting the jabs, blacks. The three most populated black states Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana are leading in not receiving the vaccines. Governess Ivey is a racist dehumanizing blacks that don't get vaccinated, oh well that was a dumb statement. Now Alabama has a RINO governor.

I read the article. She is blaming the un-vaccinated for what? She says 100% of the cases in the hospital are un-vaccinated. Is she blaming them for being the cases that are in the hospital? Hospitals are not overloaded anymore. The 2 week(ha ha) lock down was for the Hospitals to not be swamped. they are not. So what is the angst and concern? These people made a choice and they live with the consequences. A hospital stay is not nice , but why is this any one's business. Are we to go after those not vaccinated for the Flu? For mumps? For pneumonia? Al these might put you in the Hospital.

You should get the shot if you're morbidly obese, have diabetes, kidney or heart disease, high blood pressure and other underlying conditions. Unfortunately, a lot of the unvaccinated are dead men walking because they won't take care of themselves in any fashion. I have family who are in good shape and have chosen not to get the vaccine. Others who are young and have already survived COVID. I respect their decision because they have weighed the pros and cons for age and level of health.

During a Monday media briefing, the embattled New York governor beseeched private business owners to adopt “vaccine-only admission,” telling them the policy would be “in your business interest.” According to CNBC, Cuomo’s comments came on the same day he mandated vaccines for employees of the state’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Port Authority.

The Biden administration announced a temporary ban on evictions across most of the country on Tuesday, a move that bent to intense pressure from liberal House Democrats but that President Biden acknowledged may not prove constitutional. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued a moratorium on evictions for 60 days for U.S. counties with “substantial and high levels of community transmission” of the coronavirus, according to an agency news release. About 90 percent of the country will be covered by the ban as the virus’s delta variant spreads quickly throughout the country, Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in a statement.

The decision to prohibit a great number of non-Mexican migrant families from returning to Mexico is expected to force Border Patrol to release more people into the U.S. because it lacks space at existing facilities to hold the thousands coming into custody daily.
