Stumble Joe’s Door-to-Door Vaccine “Strike Force”

Back in the 1960s or 1970s I might have had a positive or at least a credulous reaction to the idea of Federal government representatives knocking on doors to educate the public on a public health initiative. Today, however, I am skeptical.

When I was young I didn’t know anything about the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, or Project MKULTRA, or other Federal programs that have used the American public as unwitting guinea pigs in medical and biowafare experiments. I had no idea about Federal efforts to control media (Project Mockingbird) or NSA surveillance of every single U.S. citizen.

These things I didn’t know when I was young concern me deeply now that I am older. As a result, I do not trust Stumble Joe’s vaccine strike force.

  1. On other sites, the teams that will reach into areas of low vaccination have been equated to government thugs, even “brown shirts” again (are our homegrown yellow shirts looking for employment between insurrections?).

    Republicans are showing their love and loyalty to our nation in peculiar ways.

      It is not hard to understand why in light of some of the verifiable history I mention.

      1. Sorry, but that dog left the station long ago.
        (Or did that train not hunt?)

        If some egregious secret programs existed in the past is no reason to not take responsibility for helping tamp down COVID.

          They are, however, good reason to not trust the government.

    Missouri Governor trying to make political points by saying:

    “I have directed our health department to let the federal government know that sending government employees or agents door-to-door to compel vaccination would NOT be an effective OR a welcome strategy in Missouri,” [Governor] Parson tweeted.

    It turns out that the plan was to engage locals to try to get vaccination rates up in underserved areas.

    “Agents door to door to compel vaccination…”. Gee, anymore loaded words other than “jack booted federal thugs” or the current favorite of right wingers, “brown shirts”?

    Meanwhile, the “Show Me” state is surging cases among the unvaccinated. Healthcare workers are pressed and concerned, but the Guv has told them they are not. They must be lying.

    Only in America, folks. People clamor for and sing Hosannahs when a vaccine is created under the rule of #45. Then, many of his fans say “Nyet”.

    1. If there is a better sign of the derangement that has captured the “Right” than their demonizing efforts to apply the best science and a lot of public money to save THEIR lives I am not sure what it could be.

      1. I am afraid we are on the way to scrapping the grand experiment in governance to emulate Turkey.

        It traded a secular democracy for an Islamic, conspiracy laden country run by decree.
