Winsome Sears had the perfect answer for this CNN “gotcha” question
CNN tried to trap Virginia Lt. Governor-elect Winsome Sears.
That effort failed.
And Winsome Sears had the perfect answer for this CNN “gotcha” question.
CNN’s Dana Bash tried to get Lt. Governor-elect Sears to support forced COVID vaccination.
Sears rejected that effort, telling Bash that this was still America and that America is a free country.
Lt. Governor-elect Sears also questioned why Americans who already recovered from COVID and possessed natural immunity were subject to vaccine mandates.
Bash then tried to force Sears to reveal her personal vaccination status.
That question prompted Sears to unload on Bash and pro-vaccine mandate zealots.
Sears said it was no one’s business what her vaccination status is.
She added that if the government began requiring you to disclose your vaccination status, the state could then begin to demand all sorts of medical information.
“As I said, America, if it’s nothing else, it’s about liberty. It’s about being able to live your life free from the government telling you what to do. And so we understand this thing about slippery slopes. The minute that I start telling you about my vaccine status, we’re going to be down the bottom of the mountain trying to figure out how we got there, because now you want to know what’s in my DNA, you’re going to want to know this, that, and the other,” Sears began.
Sears ripped the vaccine passport system in New York City where regular employees like waiters are now tasked with enforcing the government’s vaccine mandate regime.
“In New York, you see, we have people — waiters, waiters! — asking people their vaccination status, and by the way, do you know what else they require? A photo I.D. to determine if this vaccine card you’re presenting is really you. Who are we fooling? Come on. Let’s say you get the vaccine, go ahead and get the vaccine, if that’s what you want to do, get the vaccine. Don’t force it on anybody else,” Sears concluded.
Sears closed by making the common sense point that vaccination is an individual decision and the government should not force it on anyone else.
