Anchor Anderson Cooper said, “Mr. President, let me ask you a follow-up about that. As many as one in three emergency responders in some cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, right here in Baltimore, are refusing to comply with city vaccine mandates. I’m wondering where you stand on that. Should police officers, emergency responders be mandated to get vaccines? And if not, should they be stay at home or let go?”
Biden said, “Yes and yes. By the way, by the way, I waited until July to talk about mandating because I tried everything else possible. The mandates are working. All this stuff about people leaving and people getting it, you have everyone from United Airlines to Spirit, all these airlines all 96, 97% of the people have gotten the vaccine. All the talk about all these folks who are going to leave the military if they’re mandated. Not true. You got about a 90 some percent vaccination rate.”

A year ago all of the health care workers and first responders were hero’s
The left couldn’t wait to throw all those hero’s under a bus as soon as they act against the current narrative.
Now, of course, vaccines and mandates are the talk of the town, and the class-driven divide between the working class and the elites continues to grow unchecked. Almost overnight when the Biden administration took over, we went from “America is racist to its core” to “trust the government implicitly, take your shot, and show your papers.” Los Angeles County just passed one of the most sweeping vaccine mandates in the country, requiring the shots for everything from bars to gyms to indoor city facilities.
You’ll be forgiven if you suffered narrative whiplash. The sneering contempt many in the left-wing pundit class have demonstrated in their recent rhetoric about the “unvaccinated,” many of whom are lower-income people of color, is in direct opposition to the years of “diversity, equity, and inclusion.” These days, the men and women who worked through the whole pandemic are being shamed and patronized by the very people whose cushy existences they facilitated for a year and a half. The liberal elites who holed up in the Hamptons and didn’t have contact with the outside world for a year are ready to get back to their SoulCycle classes, even if it means firing a few people they once called “frontline heroes.” The irony of the same people who screamed in the faces of policemen at the height of a pandemic turning around to demand that these cops now shut up, stop asking questions, and get vaccinated is almost too much to bear.

I say go for it... Fire them all. If I was in any one of those fields I would do it for them. And then when everything is on fire and you can't go to the store (not that there would be anything there to buy) without protection, then let's see how they like it. The left always talks about how bad America is, well I say let's give it to them. Us in the south, we'll be just fine, we have guns, ammunition and the support of our neighbors. The cities would go down in flames.
