Why Are Republicans Suddenly Pro-Vaccine?
This week, we have seen Republicans do an about-face on the value of vaccines. Fox News is running public service announcements telling people to get vaccinated. Sean Hannity who once called COVID-19 a hoax that was just aimed at discrediting former President, Donald Trump is now telling viewers to take the Delta variant seriously.
Now, even Florida Governor Ron Desantis who’s PAC is selling “Don’t Fauci My Florida” t-shirts and who’s administration is preventing cruise lines from requiring passengers to be vaccinated before boarding, just came out and said “these vaccines are saving lives.”
We have to get to the bottom of this.
After doing some in-depth analysis, we discovered that the Delta variant of COVID-19 is apparently more dangerous when the stock market crashes than it is when the market is booming as our graphic illustrates above.
Since billionaires are now at risk, the GOP, Fox News, and their allies would like to remind everyone to get vaccinated.
For those of you not concerned with the wellbeing of billion-dollar portfolios, there are other reasons to get vaccinated:
- It could save your life.
- It could save your friends’ lives.
- It could save your neighbors’ lives.
- It could save your relatives’ lives.
- You can eat inside a restaurant.
- You can eat outside a restaurant only because it’s a beautiful day, not because you have to.
- It’s free! Seriously, totally free plus you get free stuff after you get the vaccine.
- Actually, it’s tax payer funded so if you don’t get a vaccine, the government is wasting your money. It’s like paying for a car that you don’t get to drive only this car ends a pandemic!
- And you can stop being a mutation factory for COVID-19.
So got out there and end this thing. Visit Vaccines.gov to find out where you can get vaccinated today.

“These vaccines are saving lives. They are reducing mortality,” DeSantis said during a news conference in St. Petersburg. “I can tell you that we’re going to end up having over 95% of folks that end up seriously ill from this point on are going to be people who are not vaccinated. And so, that’s the single most important thing that people can understand.”
“There are occasionally some side effects, but if you’re 70 years old, man, the benefit is so much better than worrying about some of that. It’s not even close,” he added.
In the early days of the pandemic, he preached to his viewers that Covid was only as bad as the flu, and Democrats were using the virus to attack then-President Donald Trump.
Fox News host, Sean Hannity, who has spent considerable airtime downplaying the effects of Covid-19, urged his viewers Monday to “take it seriously.”
