"This time you are staying home, not us." Macron's Message to France

[link:http://then24.com/2021/07/20/this-time-you-are-staying-at-home-not-us-macrons-message-to-those-who-do-not-want-to-be-vaccinated-in-france/|

French President Emmanuel Macron announced strong measures to combat a new wave of COVID-19 infections and allow a safe reopening. Those who refuse to be vaccinated will not be able to go to public places. “This time you are staying at home, not us”, the president said during a message.

We recommend you: France will give ‘cultural bonus’ of 300 euros to all 18-year-olds

Among other measures, the French government will force health workers to get vaccinated. This is due to the fact that vaccination levels among this sector are worryingly low: only 45% of the personnel who work in nursing homes for the elderly were fully vaccinated.

“I am in favor of the French line right now. I no longer have any intention of sacrificing my life, my time, my freedom and the adolescence of my daughters, as well as their right to study properly for those who refuse to be vaccinated. This time you are staying at home, not us ”.

My mantra about the unvaccinated (the ones that can be vaccinated but don't get it) is "play stupid games win stupid prizes". I don't have any sympathy for them at all (again, excluding those who through other health considerations are unable to get vaccinated).

Non-vaccinated By Choice (NVBCs) are risking everyone's health, not just their own. Allowing themselves to be easy targets for the virus and thus viral incubators and mutation hosts, these imbeciles are worse than simply duped followers of a death cult...they are its hitmen to society at large.

Vaccines WORK. Infection severity and outcomes for breakthrough case (to date) illustrate this perfectly.

I want the unvaccinated to be quarantined and forced to remove themselves from society until they are either infected and recovered or vaccinated or dead. But the rest of society should not be forced to abide their idiocy and vaccine resistance any longer.

I would also make it blatantly clear that hospitalization and in-patient care will be reserved for the vaccinated only and any NVBC patient will be isolated and placed on palliative care only until they either recover or expire naturally. Society will no longer expend resources to save those who will not act to save themselves or protect others.

Get stuck, or you're fucked.

it'll make it a lot easier for Biden to implement something similar.

All leaders must get on board for the sake of their own citizens. It does no good to vaccinate some of the world. Like they say: Staying in one end of the pool doesn't protect you from the kid that just peed in the other end.

I didn't see a single unmasked person when I was out today. At least they've gotten part of the message.

This is exactly what needs to be done here. Once the vaccines get full approval, we need to institute a requirement for military, educational institutions, and all medical personnel get fully vaccinated or bye bye. I'm tired of the lowlifes who don't want to play by the rules being pandered to.

Meanwhile, they are protesting the vax requirements. I guess the US doesn't have the only moronic maskholes. France is entering its 4th wave...

which calls for collective sacrifice, including temporarily curtailing of individual rights for the survival of the whole. The CDC made a grave mistake in lifting mask mandates etc too early before we got 80% population vaccinated. It gave the impression that 'the pandemic is over' and those vax hesitant/anti-vax types now have no incentive to get it. Basically we should use every mechanism to prevent these people from taking part in 'normal' society unless they get vax'd.

Here it's risk your life or your sanity because the unvaccinated are killing us out of utter stupidity and right wing murderous drivel.

So freaking glad the cruise lines won against FL, but expect Death Sentence to keep pushing to be able to more fully kill the working class/poor, in this state as well as it's tourists.
