Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci want to crush the “independent spirit” that impels many Americans to remain skeptical of a vaccine that was pushed through what is normally a years-long approval process in only months. Grace Curley discusses how the two want to bring French-like compliance to the United States, writing in Spectator World:
In late July, President Emmanuel Macron implemented vaccine passports in France.
Though he was met with fierce backlash from protesters, his plan did push people to finally get jabbed.
As Fortune wrote in August, ‘Across Europe, a series of sticks of varying severity has led to a pronounced rise in vaccine uptake, pushing the European Union further ahead of the US in a process Washington once led. Today, 63.6 percent of the EU population has had at least one shot, compared with 60.4 percent in the US, and that gap is growing.’
While that certainly bodes well the Biden administration, France’s trajectory in no way guarantees the US will yield the same results. But what if the virus continues to, as the ‘experts’ say, mutate?
As Dr Fauci has often pointed out, we Americans can be a bit stubborn.
In November 2020, America’s highest paid federal employee was whining about the unsophisticated masses that make up the US to his fellow ‘top doctors’, as Biden always calls them:
‘I was talking with my UK colleagues who are saying the UK is similar to where we are now, because each of our countries have that independent spirit. I can understand that, but now is the time to do what you’re told.’
That independent spirit that Fauci is referencing used to be the envy of the world. It is why the French revolutionary Lafayette, after helping Americans defeat the British in the War of Independence, wrote back to France that, ‘Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.’
But even the protesters, the resisters and the independent spirits have their limits.
Americans outside the Acela corridor can get worn out too. Perhaps that is what Joe Biden and his minders are hoping for: that soon all the spiritual descendants of the Sons of Liberty fighters will become as physically and mentally spent as he so conspicuously is.
