Liberals Changing Course On COVID

In A Brief Amount Of Time, Liberals Are Changing Course On COVID

Bob Dylan once sang that change was “gonna come.”

It may not mean the end of the pandemic – Dr. Anthony Fauci, after all, still finds avenues to spout his opinion – but the last few days have brought some kind of shift on the left’s view of COVID-19.

The big news, of course, was President Joe Biden declaring that no “federal solution” to the pandemic exists and that states were on their own – even though the White House is trying to walk that comment back.

That remark torpedoed Biden’s argument for a vaccine, or any other kind of, mandate handed down by the federal government. It also showed how hollow his presidential campaign was, as the conservative website Townhall.com noted Tuesday that as a candidate or as president Biden had pledged at least a dozen times to “shut down” COVID.

The surrender on COVID came after a Vanity Fair article last week that reported the White House in October rejected a plan to ramp up at-home testing. Biden himself recently admitted that he wished he had launched his plan for 500 million tests two months ago.

But there are other signs that liberals are waving a white flag.

Last week, CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen, the former head of Planned Parenthood, told an interviewer, “Cloth masks are little more than facial decorations. There’s no place for them in light of omicron.” Wen added, “We need to be wearing at least a three-ply surgical mask. … You can wear a cloth mask on top of that, but do not just wear a cloth mask alone.”

As People magazine reported of Wen’s comments, “The call to nix cloth masks conflicts with the mask-wearing recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which encourage masks that ‘have two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric’ for the general public.”

The CDC has played a role in this recent backpedaling, too.

The CDC, as we’re being told the most transmissible version of the virus is running rampant throughout the country, announced that the quarantine period is now five days instead of 10.

That had leftists eating their own, including the sainted Dr. Anthony Fauci. Left-wing Rep. Rashida Tlaib tweeted about that decision, the CDC “is saying ‘we need people back to work quicker even if they are still sick.’ Is this based on public health and science? Or is this in response to corporations like Delta who asked for shorter times?” 

The Blaze also reported that the CDC on Tuesday significantly revised its figures on the spread of COVID. On Dec. 18, the agency said more than 73 percent of new cases were from omicron. Now, the spread for that day is 22 percent. As of Christmas Day, the CDC attributed 58 percent of new cases to the new variant.

“We had more data come in from that timeframe and there was a reduced proportion of Omicron,” a spokeswoman told Politico.

Additionally, the left is now waking up to the damage their draconian policies have afflicted children.

Over the weekend, CBS reporter Jan Crawford said on “Face the Nation” that the most under-reported story of 2021 is the “crushing impact” COVID policies have had on kids, who are “by far” are the least seriously affected by the virus,

The “tremendous negative impact” on kids, Crawford said, has been an “afterthought” for policymakers, adding, “They will be paying for our generation’s decisions the rest of their lives.”

In her comments, Crawford referenced recent remarks by U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy about the effect on children.

Murthy, who works for, and with, the people who have has championed many of these damaging policies, now acknowledges the “widespread” mental health challenges facing kids and young adults.

“I’m so concerned about our children because there is an epidemic, if you will, of mental health challenges that they’ve been facing, and it’s partly because of the pandemic,” Murthy said recently. “We know that their lives have been turned upside down. They haven’t been able to see friends as often as they would. And that’s taken a toll.”

They may not be completely waving the white flag on COVID, but clearly, liberals are rethinking much of what they once thought about the pandemic.
