Take a Hard Look at Your Neighbors

On August 31, 2021, I wrote a blog entitled, “You Know it’s Wrong, But You are Going to Go Along Anyway.” It was a blog about how certain members of our population will admit that people should have freedom, but when push comes to shove, will gladly allow the government to do whatever they want to those who are unvaccinated or who refuse to vaccinate their children. I said that these folks would look the other way for whatever happened to us as long as they got to have their “freedoms.”

Many said I was crazy, that Americans would never allow others to be deprived of their rights unjustly. Well, now I have the proof.

Outside of the fact that local community facilities such as the historic Avalon Theater, The Oxford Community Center, and a certain huge local church among others now require “vaccine passports” to come to events, we have the preaching of members of local government about how the unvaccinated “could do yourself as well as family and friends with whom you have contact a great benefit by getting the vaccination. It’s the Christian thing to do. Those who do not are selfishly causing death and prolonging the pandemic, which you migh agree is what Satan would want you to do.” – Peter Lesher, Talbot County Councilman via his official council email account to a constituent.

Did you see that? He implies that the constituent is “satanic” by not taking the vaccine. Lots of aggression behind that cute bow tie.

Outside of any church and without a citizen doing evil things like murdering someone, raping someone, abusing children, etc. , I don’t think I have ever heard any government official accuse a constituent of doing Satan’s work. Congrats, Pete, you have officially crossed the inappropriate and cray cray line in professional correspondence. Heck, I think most liberal politicians like Pete avoid calling ANYONE, even murderers, rapists and child abusers BAD much less Satanic. They seem to tiptoe around these people and save that term for the unvaxxed and perhaps Trump supporters.

I’m thinking that if push comes to shove, Pete and his friends at the Avalon won’t be helping any of us if the government decides we need our ultimate freedoms taken away. They will be hiding behind the blinds of their windows figuring how they can justify what is happening. And, then, in the blink of an eye they will shrug their shoulders and go about their daily lives saying, “They deserved it. We gave them a chance.”

You might think this is crazy, will never happen and people don’t actually think that persecuting people of our country for a medical choice is okay.

And you would be wrong.

Look at the results of this poll:


In this article you’ll see that 59% of Democrats would support citizens being confined to their homes if they refuse the Covid vaccine. 45% would favor putting them in “designated facilities.” 55% agree with fines. 48% approve of fining or imprisoning people who publishly question the efficacy of the vaccine on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. 47% approve of a government tracking program for those unvaccinated.

And, in what I think is the most damning of all results, 29% approve of removing parent’s custody of their children if the parents won’t take the vaccines. But, it’s not just the respondents in the poll. The Salt Lake Tribune editorial board declared that Utah’s Governor Spencer Cox should mandate mass vaccination and use the National Guard to enforce it.

So, yeah, Democrats, the party that proclaims itself as “for the people” is more than ready to let their neighbors have their rights violated. Over a virus with a survival rate of over 99%. I wonder where Pete stands on that issue?

This is the party that wants us to allow everyone in this country regardless of whether or not they are criminals, regardless of the fact that they are breaking the law, a party who no longer wants to prosecute crimes like theft or even assault. After all, people are just struggling, right? Yeah, the people who have businesses that are now devastated by overwhelming financial losses from the gangs of criminals committing mass smash and grabs.

If the country of Australia is any indication, if the government attempts to “relocate” mass groups of people, it can and will happen.

Actually, you don’t have to go any farther than New York City. Or Boston. Or Washington D.C. , the capitol of the freedom loving United States. In New York, police remove the dirty unvaxxed from restaurants.

Watch this video:


Remember the police? The ones the left wanted to defund? The ones we stood behind. Hey, just doing their jobs. Just like those cute German guys with “SS” on their unis.

There is hope. The hope is that there are many of US who won’t tolerate this any more. No, Larry Hogan or Kelly Schultz, we “won’t wear the damn mask.” And we won’t get the vaccine, or get our kids vaccinated, or show our papers. And as some of us start this, many will join. Like these brave people in newly fascist Boston:

When you read the background of one of these women, you can’t help but be impressed. One of them is a verified hero.

But, unfortunately, as the poll data shows, many people are not. And some of those in the fascist side of the poll numbers disguise themselves as the good guys. And they live right next door.

Know your neighbors folks. Really.

PS: While we are on the topic of what people will do, read this article about the new trend toward corporate media and government allies suddenly telling the truth about Covid. What’s coming next?

One thought on “Take a Hard Look at Your Neighbors”

  1. I cannot thank you enough for this. You are 💯 correct! I am constantly in shock at how many people are just accepting these changes that are in violation of our Constitution. Sadly, I have come to realize that at the end of the day, most people will give up all their freedoms to “stay safe.”
