COVID restrictions were never about protecting people from COVID-19.
Instead, they were all about control, with power-hungry bureaucrats seeing how much they could get away with.
But WaPo’s Taylor Lorenz had a total meltdown after the CDC made some long-awaited changes.
The radical Left and their obsession with restrictive government policies
After years of panic and hysteria, the Center for Disease Control has finally dropped some of the final lingering COVID requirements.
These include a lift on mandatory quarantines for individuals exposed to the virus, an end to screening people with no symptoms, and the elimination of testing recommendations after potential exposure.
Additionally, NPR reported, “It also brings the recommendations for unvaccinated people in line with people who are fully vaccinated – an acknowledgment of the high levels of population immunity in the U.S., due to vaccination, past COVID-19 infections or both.”
This should have been done a long time ago – or more appropriately, never implemented in the first place.
But better late than never.
Americans should be relieved that the CDC is no longer policing their lives.
That is, unless you are Taylor Lorenz, who is a far-left “reporter” for the liberal rag known as The Washington Post.
Upon learning about the CDC’s actions to lift these draconian COVID policies, Lorenz had a full-blown meltdown.
On Twitter, Lorenz posted “literally what is the plan for high risk/medically vulnerable and disabled people? Just let us die while the world marches on?? Like wtf.”
She went on to say, “As someone working in media who’s immunocompromised and medically vulnerable I really wish we as an industry hired more disabled writers and did more to center vulnerable people in our coverage, esp on COVID. What’s happening right now is so horrific on such a massive scale”
Why people like Lorenz are so dangerous
Not only do these tweets appear as if they came from a moody 16-year-old, but they show just how insane this woman is.
She honestly expects every member of society to cancel their lives to coddle a microscopic portion that is legitimately “immunocompromised.”
It is easy to laugh at these poorly written tweets, but it is important to realize that people like Lorenz are incredibly dangerous.
This lunatic is perfectly fine with shutting down society again if it means that people like her can feel “safe.”
Such selfishness and egocentricity is what got America locked down in the first place.
The bottom line is that America cannot afford to be locked down again, and the damage from the previous lockdowns will plague society for a very long time.
