A July 23 debate between noted environmental lawyer Robert Kennedy Jr. and acclaimed human rights lawyer Alan Dershowitz hasn’t gotten nearly the amount of media attention it should.
The discourse between the two knowledgeable parties not only highlights the problems with COVID-19 vaccinations in the works, but also makes it clear that the government could use force to require adults and children alike to get the vaccine against their wishes.
The overwhelming majority of people who viewed the debate agreed that Robert Kennedy Jr. won. His points on the problems and potential dangers of possible COVID-19 vaccines were spot-on. As he pointed out, Moderna tested its vaccine on three groups of 15 people each. Three of the people in the group that got a high dose wound up in the hospital, while one person who received a low dose had to be hospitalized.
While these numbers may seem small, the fact that the testing group is also small should alarm anyone concerned about their long-term health and that of their children. Simply put, 20% of people who received Moderna’s high dose vaccine had severe negative reactions to it that required medical attention.
Furthermore, it’s worth noting that the people in the test groups are not average Americans — but rather people who aren’t overweight, don’t smoke or vape, don’t have underlying medical conditions, and don’t have diabetes.
Shortly after the debate, AstraZeneca, another pharmaceutical company creating a COVID-19 vaccine, announced it has been granted protection from legal action should the vaccine cause harmful side effects. As leading AstraZeneca executive Ruud Dobber chillingly stated, his firm can’t take the risk if the vaccine shows side effects in a few years.
Alan Dershowitz lost the debate, but he did make a valid point about the government’s power to force vaccinations on its citizens. His statement asserting that the government “has the power to literally take you to the doctor’s office and plunge a needle into your arm” may not be entirely accurate. However, as Dershowitz noted, the government has the power to mandate vaccines for children and, in extreme cases, this mandate could be broadened to include adults.
President Trump has already stated that he would not use his powers to force everyone to get vaccinated for COVID-19, but liberal governors of blue states may seriously consider the idea. It’s also possible that former Vice President Joe Biden could act on it if he wins the upcoming presidential election.
Meanwhile in the private sector, corporations could use their clout too by not allowing non-vaccinated people to come to the business in the same way that Walmart and other large stores are stopping people who aren’t wearing masks from entering.
Vaccination is a personal choice and one that is fraught with risks. That’s why it’s best left to the individual rather than the state. Sadly, liberals who claim they want tolerance and personal freedom are unwilling to tolerate those who dare to question “science” even if it’s been proved, time and again, that science can make fatal mistakes.
