Kurt Schlichter writes at Townhall.com about the tepid public response to a new variant of COVID-19.

The news of the emerging Omicron variant was greeted with a giant shrug by most of America, and it’s no surprise why. The total failure of our establishment to earn our trust over the last two years of this pandemic made it inevitable that a huge number of people, at best, don’t care, and at worst think it’s a calculated lie designed to prolong this nonsense. The COVIDians are positively turgid over the idea of more mandates, more lockdowns, more masks, and more viro-fascism. So when the CEO of Moderna states that the vaccine might not be as effective against this new mutation as to earlier ones, in direct contradiction to what President Asterisk assured us just a day before was “unlikely,” we just see it as more bullSchiff shoveled by the manure mob.

They’ve lied to us before, and often, and then they get all huffy when we point out their lies. You are not denying science by pointing out how wrong, and how often, Fauci has been. That malignant dwarf is so high on his on supply that he’s now offering his insights on politics to eager legacy media hacks. His takes are, no surprise, just as stupid as his takes on COVID.

It’s not a conspiracy theory or kookiness to assess that our so-called leaders have failed in every way in this crisis. Look at Biden – the guy who was going to wave his magic wand and make it all better has seen more people die under him than Trump. But the establishment never criticizes this guy; why would they, since he gives them whatever they want?

They lied to us. The experts told us masks are no good, then that they are, then that you need two, then none, then masks again.
