CNN is an utter clown show.
And they don’t even attempt to hide their authoritarian tendencies in front of their audience.
Host Michael Smerconish discussed vaccine hesitancy on-air and complained that those unwilling to be vaccinated is preventing the country from returning to normal.
He even concluded that if encouragement and extra freedoms don’t work to convince people to get their jabs, then government and big business should wield the stick to force jabs into their arms.

Hey Smerconish, that’s called fascism.
This public-private coercion tag team would work together to endanger Americans unwilling to inject an experimental vaccine into their bodies.
My body, my choice.
Isn’t that the phrase, CNN.
But I forgot, that only applies to abortions.
Here’s Smerconish’ s rant:
Does the US need a better vaccine carrot — and a bigger stick?

Despite this clear support to intertwine government and the private sector for the “good of society” (fascism), the authoritarian left cheered his message.
To get America to herd immunity, being vaccinated should be incentivized. If that fails, CNN's Michael Smerconish proposes the government and businesses should consider measures to exclude the unvaccinated from the workplace and events. Smerconish has https://t.co/nOrR7t3kAC

Darwin says, let these anti-vaccination idiots remove themselves from the human gene pool! Just sad they will take some innocent friends and family members with them.

And the USA Today had this commentary about shunning vaccine-hesitant individuals from society:
Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease doctor, suggested in December that if 75% to 80% of the population got vaccinated, we could reach herd immunity by the end of summer. And with herd immunity, we’d return to a measure of “normalcy,” meaning indoor dining, movie theaters and hugs.
But herd immunity is slipping away because a quarter of Americans are refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine. “There is no eradication at this point, it’s off the table,” Dr. Gregory Poland, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group, recently said. “We as a society have rejected” herd immunity.
Hmm, no! “We” have not rejected anything. A quarter of the country is ruining it for all of us.
It’s not just wacky former rockers who have put herd immunity out of reach. It is white evangelicals (45% say they won’t get vaccinated). And it is Republicans (almost 50% are refusing the vaccine). In Texas, 61% of white Republicans say they are reluctant to get the vaccine or would refuse it. You can slap the euphemism “vaccine hesitancy” on the problem, but in the end the G.O.P., and the children of G.O.D., are perpetuating a virus that is sickening and killing people in droves.
A big part of the problem stems from the cultish relationship many evangelicals and Republicans have with the former president. They absorbed his endless efforts to downplay the danger of the virus and turn public health precautions into a political freedom movement. But the time for analyzing why these human petri dishes have chosen to ignore the medical science that could save them, and us, is over. We need a different strategy. I propose shunning.
Biden’s wildly successful vaccine rollout means that soon everyone who wants a vaccine will have one. When that happens, restaurants, movie theaters, gyms, barbers, airlines and Ubers should require proof of vaccination before providing their services.
And it shouldn’t stop there. Businesses should make vaccination a requirement for employment. A COVID-19 outbreak can shut down a business and be financially devastating. And failure to enforce basic health and safety measures is not fair to employees who have to work in offices, factories and stores where close contact is required. Things should get personal, too: People should require friends to be vaccinated to attend the barbecues and birthday parties they host. Friends don’t let friends spread the coronavirus.
Friends don’t let friends spread COVID-19?
No, friends respect the freedom of their friends and don’t force them to inject an experimental vaccine into their bodies if they don’t want it.
The left have fully exposed themselves for the control freaks and authoritarians they’ve always been.
