Look at the fence around the Capitol, and the National Guard behind same.
The cops in riot gear in Portland and elsewhere.
And the celebrities, health officials, union screamers and politicians all exhorting Americans of all stripes to roll up their sleeves for an experimental vaccine that was not fully tested in animals, was not fully dose-ranged in humans and instead of being put into a couple of thousand volunteers for a ten year period to determine if it produced durable and safe protection instead is being jammed into 100+ million American arms with threats of coercion now coming into the forefront.

What could possibly go wrong?
A Marek’s disease style disaster, for one.
What is Marek’s disease?
A virus that infects chickens, and which was greatly potentiated by leaky vaccines.
Don’t take my word for it. No less than National Geographic pointed this out in 2015.
What are we being told about the Covid-19 vaccines? They are leaky; you should continue to wear a mask and social distance because it is not believed they are all sterilizing; none of them may be. In addition all of the ones being trialed in the Western World are an imperfect match against the virus because they code only the spike protein of the virus, not the entire viral protein set. Never mind that all of them available in the US are not actually vaccines by the definition; they instead trick your body into producing the spike protein instead of directly introducing an attenuated or killed virus containing the protein. This approach, specifically in the case of mRNA technology vaccines has never been used before. mRNA was originally developed for cancer therapy where, as it should be obvious, you already have a deadly disease and without treatment you are very likely to die.
The risk profile of the two groups of people could not be more different.
Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. It was leaky in that while it prevented you from getting active polio it didn’t stop you from contracting it and excreting it in your feces. This was recognized by Sabin as very dangerous and thus we for decades used both the injected vaccine and then the oral form, the Sabin vaccine, which produces sterilizing immunity. I remember being given the oral vaccine as a child. Why the injected vaccine first? Because in a very small number of people the oral form would revert in the gut and give you polio instead of protection; the injection prevented that bad outcome.
We knew this more than fifty years ago; non-sterilizing immunity is dangerous. A virus, in the presence of non-sterilizing immunity, through natural evolutionary pressure will tend to evade that protection and become more deadly. There is no safe way to use non-sterilizing vaccines if a virus is circulating in the population.
I am generally pro-vaccination for personal prophylaxis against disease. No vaccine is perfect and no vaccine to “protect others” is ever legitimate under any circumstances, just as I have no obligation to refrain from drinking a beer where you, who are an alcoholic, might see me do it and thus decide to consume your last beer and die. My daughter received (at my direction with the active assistance of her physician) nearly all of the “recommended” vaccines. The exception? HPV because in rare cases it can produce Guillain-Barre, is only protective against some of the strains of the disease, and the disease is only contracted by sexual contact. Therefore that choice was left to her when she became an adult; I had no right to decide for her, in advance, whether she might choose to never sleep with other than one virginal man in her life, as just one example where the risks would make no sense. She received the varicella (Chicken Pox) vaccine because despite Chicken Pox being about as dangerous to kids as Covid-19 with damn near every other kid having got the shot the risk of her getting the virus as an adult, where it is much more dangerous, was far higher than the dangers from the shot.
I am against all “mandatory” vaccines and any coercion to obtain them because the argument for taking them should always and only be predicated on the protection they provide you. If that protection cannot be convincingly proved to you then you should not take it. That all vaccines occasionally fail is fact. That all drugs, including vaccines, have risk is also fact. If you take the vaccine and it fails to protect you then you get just as sick as if you don’t take it at all. If you allow even one person into this nation, ever, under any set of circumstances without iron-clad proof they have taken every single vaccine you try to coerce you are a lying sack of crap and there are literally millions if not tens of millions of such people in this country right now. They’re called illegal invaders and exactly zero of them have shown evidence of vaccination against measles, mumps and myriad other diseases. Nonetheless no coercion was or is required for me to have both taken them myself and given them to my daughter; the science and evidence is what it is.
HOWEVER, I am decidedly against the Covid-19 vaccines as a “universal” recommendation because in healthy people on the math and science it is STUPID to take them; the data says the risk of the shot in the immediate term is approximately equal to the risk of the disease itself instead of being a tiny fraction, often 1/100,000th of the risk (as with polio) or more lower and we know nothing about the intermediate and longer-term risks.
As a point of comparison out of all the Varicella (Chicken Pox) shots given last year there was one associated death. ONE.
Across the Covid-19 vaccines given thus far there are 1,920 associated deaths reported for, I remind you, a disease that has approximately the same risk of death in a child as does Chicken Pox. These reports are late by definition since if I get a shot today the report of my demise if it occurs won’t be in their system today. When you’re giving out shots on a mass-basis reporting is always materially behind so the real risk is higher than it first appears.
Accepting certain risk of a given magnitude .vs. potential risk of the same magnitude is stupid.
But the stupidity does not end there.
Coronaviruses have a history of producing “ADE”, or antibody-dependent enhancement, when vaccines have been attempted in the past. That is, rather than provide protection the virus mutates slightly over time and the presence of the antibodies from the vaccine do not protect the victim; they instead greatly enhance viral entry into the cells, effectively acting like a key for the lock and bypassing the other natural immune processes that impede viral entry and replication. The result of ADE, if it occurs, is usually extremely severe disease or death.
