The Second Gentleman of the United States is terrifying immigrants to make them get the COVID vaccine. Douglas Emhoff pressured a native-Spanish speaker into a publicity stunt to help his wife’s administration achieve its vaccination goals. A Mexican immigrant was given a vaccine after the heavy-handed arm twisting by Emhoff.
On Wednesday, Emhoff was at a mobile vaccination site at the Broadmoor Community Church in New Orleans. Emhoff has been touring the country this summer to help promote the political vaccinae goals of his wife, Vice President Kamala Harris, and Pres. Joe Biden.
The media was brought outside the church to watch Mexican immigrant Gustavo Posadas waiting for a shot at a vaccination site, according to a press pool report. The PR gimmick was clearly set up in advance. “Who do we have here?’ Emhoff asks, while looking around for the man.
“This is Gustava, here,” replied a man wearing a clerical collar. The pastor pointed at Posadas who was wearing a green t-shirt, straw hat and a face mask below his nose. A live video of the event was taken by NOLA on Facebook.
“I heard it took a little work, but you’re there, so let’s do this,” creepy Emhoff said to Posadas. “Thanks for doing it in front of everybody.”
Emhoff spoke to the 44-year-old man as if he was a toddler at the doctor’s office. “Don’t be nervous. It won’t hurt. I’ve had it. I can take it. So don’t be scared,” Emhoff told Posadas.
The immigrant then stood off to the side while Emhoff shook hands with doctors and medical staff from Ochsner Health. After posing for photos, Emhoff turns back to Posadas.
“Gustava, thank you so much. Muy importante,” Emhoff said in English-accented Spanish. “What do you have to say to people? And you’re going to tell a bunch of people...?”
“I tell everybody,” Posadas said in Spanish-accented English. “I don’t want this before. But now I think this is real...”
“This is real,” Emhoff says, completing his sentence. “And it’s the only thing that is going to prevent you, your family and others from dying or getting really sick.”
Say what? A vaccine is the only thing that is going to prevent people from dying from COVID? Is this what the Biden administration’s door knockers are telling people in private?
The recovery rate for COVID is 98 to 99 percent. Almost all the deaths are due to age or underlying conditions. Johns Hopkins currently has the rate at 98.2 percent in America. Even Dr. Anthony Fauci testified before Congress that the survival rate is actually 99 percent because asymptomatic cases are under counted.
Emhoff seemingly doesn’t care to give the facts to Posadas and put the success of the media stunt at risk. “I’m so grateful you’re doing this in front of the cameras so you can tell everyone it’s okay,” said Emhoff.
Posadas nods his head. “Everything - my people - I thinks, we want the shot. This is real. I not believe you before, but I feel it now.”
No reporter asks questions. But the obvious one is: How long ago did Posadas not “believe” Emhoff? Who convinced him to take the vaccine? What was told to him in English or Spanish?
Emhoff wastes no time with Posadas’s hesitancy. “Well let’s do it!” said the Second Gentleman while the medical staff and clergy applaud.
Posadas is put in a white, folding chair. He keeps on the mirrored sunglasses. A woman in scrubs tells him to pull the mask over his nose. He rolls up his sleeve as the woman comes in with the needle. Posadas looks in the opposite direction.
“Look at me! Look at me!” Emhoff tells him, while the shot is administered. The crowd applauds. Emhoff holds out his fist, and Posadas bumps him after he stands.
“Thank you for doing this,” Emhoff says, while Posadas rubs his arm and says something in Spanish. “Thank you for telling everyone to do this.”
Emhoff walks away to do media interviews while a woman is heard off camera saying, “Gustava, did you get your card with your vaccination on it?”
The Second Gentleman tells reporters that, “On the Covid piece, on the vaccinations, I’m not going to stop. This administration is not going to stop until we continue to get the word out here.”
Emhoff continues but seems to not remember Posadas’s name. “You heard what he said - it’s real. He didn’t believe it. He believes it now….” Harris’s husband does a hard sell of the vaccines and adds, “We’re going to go door to door, bring the vaccines out to the people until we get this done.”
The July 4th deadline for the Biden’s goal to get 70 percent of Americans vaccinated is past. He and Harris should stop their obsession with universal vaccination and just let people like Posadas make their own medical decisions based on a risk assessment. Also, there should be a required interpreter for any door-to-door vaccine salesman from the Biden White House who convinces a non-native English speaker to get a shot.

Fascist behavior from a fascist regime.
These people are disgusting.
I don't know if you read Don Surber's blog, but he had an interesting take on the reluctance to get The Vax. One thing he said struck me - that the medical community, doctors' offices in particular, seem to be afraid even though they've all had the jab.
A doctor, after outlining his interaction with patients that refuse to take The Vax, wants to know if it's "ethical and in the interest of public health to restrict vaccine-refusing patients to telehealth appointments?"
Surber says, "But as a covid vaccinated person who skips flu shots annually, the question reveals why people are hesitant. The doctor's reluctance to be exposed to unvaccinated people undercuts confidence in the vaccine."
Hmmmm..... I wonder! I hadn't thought about it before, but doesn't that do a lot to undercut all the reassurances that gene therapy is effective? I mean, why bother, if even your doctor is afraid?
It's ridiculous when you have to act like you're going into a Level IV Ebola lab when you go to the doctor!
(Doesn't change my own questions, though - what are they hiding? What is this jab really doing to people?)
