With tempers boiling over after Joe Biden’s goal of having 70 percent of Americans fully vaccinated by July 4th, the administration and its media partners are looking for scapegoats for what was a major political embarrassment.
As has been the case since 2016, the establishment quickly settled on a familiar target, putting the blame for rising coronavirus cases solely on conservatives and especially those who support former President Donald J. Trump.
But what will continue to go unmentioned is the role of Biden, Democrats, the federal bureaucracy, and the media in contributing to vaccine hesitancy with their constantly shifting guidances, an outsized sense of moral superiority, and their ongoing condescension to those Americans who don’t live in the deep blue enclaves of the coastal elite.
One person who is pointing out what should be obvious is former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders who called out Dr. Anthony Fauci along with what she called a “crowd of arrogant, condescending politicians and bureaucrats” and their mismanagement of the ongoing health crisis.
Sanders, who is mounting a run for the Arkansas governorship wrote a column that was published by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette explaining why she made the personal decision to receive the vaccine while expressing her view that those who are hesitant would be treated with respect.

According to Sanders; “Like many of you, I have had a lot of misinformation thrown at me by politicians and the media during the pandemic. And, like many of you, I spent a lot of time sorting through it all, trying to make the best decision I could for myself and my family.” she wrote.
She continued, “What I found was simple: Dr. Fauci and the “because science says so” crowd of arrogant, condescending politicians and bureaucrats were wrong about more than their mandates and shutdowns that have inflicted incalculable harm on our people and economy.”
In a reminder of how Trump and his Operation Warp Speed was received, Sanders pointed out that “From the moment he made his announcement, the “expert” class tried to undermine those statements with baseless fear-mongering.”
Sanders called out both Biden and Kamala Harris who prior to the election, cast doubts on the effectiveness of the same vaccines that they are now demanding that every American receive.
“But no one did more to undercut public confidence in the vaccine than Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Biden doubted that the vaccine would be “real,” while Harris said in a nationally-televised debate that she would not take any vaccine the Trump administration had a hand in creating.” She wrote.
Sanders continued; “We all know what happened after the first vaccines were announced on Nov. 9, right after the presidential election. Scientists quickly began to praise the results of Operation Warp Speed, but by then the damage was already done.” she said, “Because of what they heard from politicians and TV “experts,” many Americans were scared the vaccines were not safe.”
The truth of the matter is that to many of those who remain reluctant to be vaccinated, the seeds of doubt were sown well before the Biden regime flip-flopped from suggesting that vaccines were unsafe when Trump was in office to exactly the opposite now.
When it comes to the blame for the percentage of the nation that has not been vaccinated, the ones who are truly responsible are those who hijacked an unprecedented health crisis to serve their own political agenda.
