Horowitz: The new idolatrous utterance: ‘It would have been much worse without the shots.’

It’s become the new holy sacrament. Anyone who gets another shot, after he or she inevitably gets COVID because the shot failed, utters a verse from the COVID cultist “bible” almost verbatim, the same as the next newly infected, boosted deacon of Covidstan’s official church.

Three Democrat politicians put out almost the same statement following their diagnoses with COVID in order to distract from the failures of their three shots:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren tweeted: “Thankfully, I am only experiencing mild symptoms & am grateful for the protection provided against serious illness that comes from being vaccinated & boosted.”

In a press release, Cory Booker said: “I’m beyond grateful to have received two doses of vaccine and, more recently, a booster — I’m certain that without them I would be doing much worse.”

Rep. Jason Crow (D-Colo.), after contracting COVID from a trip in Ukraine, tweeted the following: “I’m thankful to be fully vaccinated and boosted and experiencing only mild symptoms (the vaccine is safe and effective).”

This seems to have become the standard oath of sacrament among boosted politicians getting the virus.

Isn’t it funny how COVID now has a 100% critical illness rate, so that anyone who gets it mildly can always tout the shots as effective? Safe and effective? When was the last time you heard of someone getting the pathogen shortly after having three shots against it? This is not normal.

Every time people like Joe Rogan or Dennis Prager, who didn’t get the shots but used early treatments, assert that they had milder cases because of their choice of therapeutics, they get attacked for not choosing the sacred therapeutic. Yet when the elected officials all coalesce behind the messaging of “it would have been worse” after getting COVID following the third shot, the media accepts that as “science.” I’d love to be a fly on the wall in the homes of these senators to see which therapeutics they are availing themselves of. I doubt they will leave their fate to chance – a diminishing chance that the vaccine works.

These cultist politicians are trying to distract from the broader point. Namely, that it appears those who get the shots are much more likely to get COVID, particularly Omicron, than those who did not get the shots. At least the pagans during the biblical era bowed down to things that simply didn’t respond. In this case, their idol responds, all right. According to data from Denmark, the vaccinated are more than twice as likely to get Omicron as the non-vaccinated. Just 8.5% of Omicron cases are among the unvaccinated, less than half their share of the population. With other variants, it’s approximately on par with their share of the population. What is so shocking is that even those who have gotten the boosters within the past month or two, and are in the bullseye of “vaccine efficacy” before it wanes, are still getting the virus in great numbers.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, after testing positive for COVID despite (or perhaps because of) being triple-vaccinated, doubled down by saying Omicron is a reason to get vaccinated! “With the Omicron variant becoming increasingly dominant, I want to again urge Marylanders who haven’t yet to go out and get your booster shot as soon as possible,” said “Lockdown” Larry Hogan in a statement that in itself announced his positive test after having been “boosted.”

We now have entire college campuses that are microcosms of the COVID utopia the public health officials can only dream of. Everyone is vaccinated, most are boosted, and everyone must wear a mask in public. Yet there are huge outbreaks, to the point that Harvard and Cornell have switched to online learning for next semester. What about vaccines passports? Well, cruises full of people who could only sign up with a passport are now coming back full of COVID-positive people. What about states with the highest vaccination rates? Some of them have the highest case rates!

As for the question of symptom severity, aside from the fact that this is irrelevant to protecting other people, South Africa is the perfect control group against the theory that Omicron is mild because of the vaccinated. Denmark is ultra-vaccinated, while South Africa only has about a quarter of its population vaccinated. Both countries have experienced a wild Omicron outbreak, yet hospitalizations are low from this variant in both. The hospitalization rate decreased 91% in South Africa. The case fatality rate is estimated to be 19 times lower than during the last Delta wave. Thus, there is no way one can suggest that this variant is only mild for the vaccinated. The White House is warning of a dark, deadly winter from Omicron for those who are unvaccinated. Well, you can hold South Africa’s beer! The country is now getting rid of most restrictions and contact tracing with a recognition that “they are not likely to be successful.”

In other words, they recognize that human interventions have made no difference in this pandemic. The one human intervention that likely would have worked is early treatment. But to this day – no matter how desperate an image they show in public – they will never turn to what actually works. They would rather lead us to hell than follow to heaven.
