The Affirmative Action Vaccine

No one wants white privilege. Being white can cost you a job, a raise, or admission to an Ivy League college. Now, it might even kill you.

The Centers for Disease Control advised states to consider non-whites a critical group for vaccine distribution. About half the states, including “red states” such as Idaho, Utah, and Wyoming, want to give blacks, Hispanics, and American Indians the vaccine first. It’s affirmative action vaccination.

No one is hiding this plan. A committee of experts that advises the CDC urged that “essential workers” get the vaccine ahead of the elderly. This might seem surprising because old people are far more likely than others to die from COVID-19. It is not even close.

However, in the funhouse of American policy-making, it’s fine to let old people get the virus. “Historically, the committee relied on scientific evidence to inform its decisions,” said the New York Times. “But now the members are weighing social justice concerns as well.” So much for “trusting the science.”

What does “social justice” mean? More dead whites.

Committee member Dr. Peter Szilagyi: “To me the issue of ethics is very significant, very important for the country, and clearly favors the essential worker group because of the high proportion of minority, low-income and low education workers among essential workers.”

Ethics professor Harald Schmidt, also quoted in the Times, was even more blunt: “Older populations are whiter. Society is structured in a way that enables them to live longer. Instead of giving additional health benefits to those who already had them, we can start to level the playing field a bit.” Dare we call this another aspect of the Great Replacement?

Prof. Schmidt is completely wrong. Hispanics live longer than whites. Asians live longer than Hispanics. Whites come in third, and the gap in average lifespan between blacks and whites is smaller than the one between whites and Asians. If Prof. Schmidt wanted to “level the playing field a bit,” he’d have to start culling Asians. To explain something that isn’t even true by claiming society is “structured in a way” to advantage whites is just the sort of nonsense we can count on from the New York Times.

When governors around the country imposed lockdowns that crushed small businesses, it was supposed to protect the elderly. Indeed, some journalists and activists said President Trump, who was skeptical of lockdowns, wanted to “kill” the elderly.

Older people are in danger. The CDC reports that people between 75 and 84 are eight times more likely to be hospitalized and 220 times more likely to die from the disease than those 18–29. (Joe Biden is 78). Those over 85 are 650 times more likely to die. The Democrats won the last election (if they did) partly because they took away President Trump’s support among seniors. The virus and hostile media coverage of how Mr. Trump handled it were huge factors.

If President Trump were the authoritarian his foes imagine, he could have ordered national lockdowns, appealed to fear, and perhaps won the election by posing as father-protector. President Trump instead let Americans decide for themselves. That was a political mistake, but not necessarily a policy mistake.

I take COVID-19 seriously. I know people who died from it. However, lockdowns are not without cost. They can lead to job losses, poverty, weight gain, drug overdoses, depression, divorce, and countless other problems. People die from them just as they do from COVID-19. With time, we could find lockdowns did more harm than good.

Besides, did lockdowns and liberal governors save grandma? New York Governor Andrew Cuomo had time to write a bookaccept an Emmy, and give his brother self-congratulatory interviews on CNN during the crisis, but even far-left outlets such as ProPublica say his COVID-19 policy may have made things worse: “New York was the only state in the nation that barred [COVID-19] testing of those being placed or returning to nursing homes.”

In May, President Trump tweeted about a shocking attack by a young black man on an elderly white man in a nursing home in Michigan. The attacker filmed his own savage crime. Why was the young man in the nursing home at all? A hospital sent him there after he was diagnosed with COVID-19. It’s especially outrageous because Governor Gretchen Whitmer imposed drastic lockdowns supposedly designed to protect people from the pandemic.

In July, the white victim died. There was little media coverage. About a week later, Governor Whitmer signed an executive order saying the public health crisis was “racism.” The goal is “health equity,” and the cure is to “elevate Black voices.”

The Atlantic admits that liberal California has “lost control” of the virus. The Golden State just broke its own record for COVID-19 hospitalizations. The worst area is reportedly Los Angeles County, which, in terms of population, is part of the Third World. Some blame Angelenos for not following social distancing rules, but Governor Gavin Newsom isn’t following them either. Who can blame ordinary people for following his example?

The COVID-19 pandemic is not President Trump’s fault, and liberal governors who hate him hardly covered themselves with glory. However, here we are, with vaccines that can supposedly save us. Isn’t it time to “save grandma” by making sure she gets it first? Apparently not. Now it’s time to achieve “racial equity” – meaning equality of outcomes, not opportunity – by giving it to non-whites first.

Yes, there’s a case to make for medical workers getting the vaccine first. You could even argue that younger people with more years to live should get preference. But this isn’t what journalists and ethicists are saying, and it isn’t what states are debating. They’re deciding whether to ration a potentially life-saving injection according to race. It’s a step towards the situation in the United Kingdom, where the National Health Service can deny non-critical care to “racist or sexist” patients – and remember, many people now argue that all whites are racist, no matter what they do.

I’ll echo Professor Schmidt and be blunt. These policies are anti-white and hateful. Almost everyone would recognize this if any other group were victims.

And there are two other considerations. First, race is a biological reality. Different health outcomes aren’t always the result of social conditions. For example, high black mortality in childbirth is a fashionable political issue. Future vice president Kamala Harris even introduced legislation to fight it, calling it a crisis. However, Hispanics have a lower child mortality rate than whites. Native Hawaiians do, too. If we can’t say that this could have a biological cause, then we must conclude that the system is “systematically biased” towards Hispanics and Hawaiians.

Vaccines are about biology, not ideology, and they may not work the same for all people. A study from MIT found that the vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer may be less effective on blacks or Asians. Is the vaccine “racist?” Of course not. However, we can’t discuss race, so we can’t make rational policy choices on healthcare, even if they might save more Black Lives (which, I am told, Matter).

Indeed, Nature magazine now says it will not publish papers that could raise “concerns related to implications for the group under study or broader society implications.” As in the Chernobyl disaster, those who control information twist the truth to uphold ideology. That ideology may hurt the people it claims to help, but it doesn’t matter. The lie is more important than lives.

Those who want “health equity” must face a second problem of their own making. Most blacks don’t trust vaccines. These vaccines (and there are several coming online that act in different ways) have side effects. Pfizer’s vaccine may cause allergic reactions. Though journalists have repeatedly criticized President Trump as the “anti-vaccine candidate” who causes his followers to doubt “experts,” blacks and Hispanics are more suspicious of the vaccines than whites. Fewer than 20 percent of blacks think vaccines will be safe. Dr. Anthony Fauci’s praise of a black woman scientist, Kizzmekia Corbett, who he said helped develop one of the vaccines will not change this. Earlier this year, Dr. Corbett wondered whether COVID-19 were not “genocide” against blacks.

For years, historians and journalists have promoted the Tuskegee hoax that scientists “experimented” on blacks in the 1930s, refusing to treat them for syphilis. This isn’t what happened. Nonetheless, because this myth spread and is often recited, blacks distrust medical authorities. Those who promote “health equity” are always harping on “racism” in medicine from decades ago. NPR recently aired an interview with “writer and ethicist” Harriet Washington, author of Medical Apartheid. She blames “four centuries of abuse in the medical arena” for blacks’ reluctance to take the vaccine. Today explains blacks’ lack of trust on “medical experimentation’s racist history.” “Years of medical abuse make Black Americans less likely to trust the coronavirus vaccine,” claims the Washington Post.

What happens if a black person, who gets a priority vaccination, dies from side effects? What happens if a black person dies, even from unrelated causes, after taking the vaccine? Rumors will spread, the ghost of Tuskegee will emerge, and I suspect we will hear more rubbish about white scientists “experimenting” on blacks.

Whites can’t win. If the vaccines work and are safe, we must sacrifice our grandparents to ensure “health equity.” If blacks get priority and something goes wrong, this will be another case of medical “racism.”

Some political battles are zero-sum, but medicine shouldn’t be. This is a technical problem that should have one correct solution. There is a right way to handle a pandemic, to judge costs and benefits of lockdowns, or study whether a vaccine works. There’s also a right way to determine who should get vaccinated first.

Multiracialism makes it impossible to set rational goals. Instead, we must constantly cater to non-white delusions and claims of victimization. We are so politically crippled that the world’s sole superpower can’t solve a basic responsibility of government. What should be objective analysis disappears into the black hole of “racism.”

COVID-19 is serious, but it’s certainly not the Black Death. Still, it is tearing our society apart. China, where the disease originated, is emerging stronger than ever. The “health” of a nation isn’t just biological or material. It’s psychological and spiritual.

America’s problem isn’t just that our people are unhealthy. It’s that we are consumed with an inner rot, a cancer that’s consuming everything our ancestors gave us. Until it’s cut out, the rot will spread until there is nothing left. It will be a desolation, which they will call “equity.”

  1. The spite in the Heart of the Democratic Party really has to be catalogued. A thorough history should ruin several political careers if pursued correctly. The Cuomo and Whitmer names ought to dragged through court over their incomprehensible policy contradictions on positive tests and care homes. These fucks ruined their states and failed to pay up for the wreckage.

  2. “Hispanics live longer than whites. Asians live longer than Hispanics. Whites come in third, and the gap in average lifespan between blacks and whites is smaller than the one between whites and Asians”:

    However, wealth disparity, class difference, correlates with variation of lifespan even better than racial difference.

    Many Whites are suffering in poverty just like Blacks, or struggling at the edge of it, yet they continue to support the system because they imagine it still helps them remain “above” non-Whites, or that it still gives them a chance, as individuals, to “climb to the top” of the economic heap by working harder, smarter, or better, or through inheritance, or luck. Racial identity politics is a distraction from the reality of the capitalist class system, inequality and global exploitation that mixes, blends and destroys ethno-nationality.

    • What system would that be Schlomo? Affirmative action? Critical Theory? Jewish nepotism?

  3. The “hostile media coverage of how Mr. Trump handled” the virus was mostly valid. His attitude, formed by Jared Kushner and others, concerning the virus was despicable and you are a disgrace when you suggest otherwise.

  4. This is where the negative white privilege becomes the positive white privilege. You don’t want the Covid vaccine. It has mRNA instructions and possibly contains CRISPR technology.

    Forget what’s in your wallet, what’s in your vaccines?

  5. You live in a country ruled by an establishment and culture that hates White people. This is just further proof of what is already known.

  6. In American racial justice, there are really only two races under consideration. White and black. The other races are just sort of folded into the black and white typology in order to make the theories work, since the entire theory of “White privilege” breaks down when considering groups like East Asians or Indians. East Asians are the most glaring example because they are just folded into the white or PoC categories depending on which would harm whites more. When Asians do well, it is because they are “white presenting” or “white adjacent.” Otherwise they are treated as PoC (black) when attacking White people.

  7. “White supremacy is a lethal public health issue that predates and contributes to COVID-19”

    This was said by “public health experts” during the George Floyd riots.

    Anybody who sincerely believes this Covid thing is genuine and not a radical and doomed to fail attempt at catastrophic social engeneering is either extremely gullible or given to hysterics

    • @Malachi…

      I cannot speak for others, but, certainly The China Virus does not seem ‘organic’ to me – not by a long shot.

      For me, it seems like both an attempt to strike a gunpowderless shot at the Trump Administration, by the Zio-Sino Globalist Alliance, all the while providing the opportunity for endless behavior modification.

  8. Re: “China, where the disease originated, is emerging stronger than ever”:

    Yes, it is one of the very few national economies that is GROWING in 2020, and poised for even more growth in 2021. But, Gregory, you should not state as if it were a fact that the disease originated in China. The origin of the disease is NOT known.

    Re: “The health of a nation isn’t just biological or material. It’s psychological and spiritual. America’s problem isn’t just that our people are unhealthy. It’s that we are consumed with an inner rot, a cancer that’s consuming everything our ancestors gave us. Until it’s cut out, the rot will spread”:

    The problem, the rot that must be cut out, is the U.S. economic system itself. No amount of reform will change its evil nature. It will eventually run out of foreign nations to exploit, and it will turn to focus on us.

    Interesting news from China today on how psychological/spirtitual rot should and must be cut out of a nation:

    https://supportnewchina.blogspot.com/2020/12/zhang-zhans-abuse-of-socialist-freedom.html

    “The CPC and the Chinese people defeated the Covid19 Crisis by carefully isolating and caring for the population – whilst also not scaring the populace through the spreading of false-data, superstition and fear! Unfortunately, Zhang Zhan (whose antics had been tolerated for some time), took to supporting the latter path. This could not be tolerated because of the threat it represented to the health of the nation and the health of the world. Zhang Zhan was therefore arrested, tried and sentenced to four-years in prison – which is a relatively short-time considering her crimes. She will be treated humanely and with compassion and will leave custody a better person. Zhang Zhan is a ‘Christian’ with links to the Western Churches that support predatory capitalism. Freedom of religion is guaranteed in China – but Zhang Zhan does not want to associate with the indigenous Chinese Churches – but is rather motivated to bring down the Socialist System of China through various acts of low intensity terrorism probably ordered and encouraged by her Western paymasters. It may well be the case that Covid19 did not start in China, or was brought to China by forces antagonistic to the Socialist System. Zhang Zhan arrived in Wuhan and started making videos uploaded onto the US-controlled YouTube rather than the Chinese-controlled ‘YouKu’. As YouTube is ‘banned’ in China – these videos made by Zhang Zhan were only for Western consumption and had nothing to do with educating the Chinese population – as she alleged during her trial. Furthermore, the data she was broadcasting was scientifically ‘incorrect’ and liable to cause panic and alarm throughout the world. Of course, anti-Socialist (and racist) Western groups such as ‘Amnesty International’ – which says nothing about the fascism of ‘Donald Trump’ but which continuously criticises Socialist countries from a bourgeois moral perspective – obviously supports people like Zhang Zhan without question! As a criminal under close arrest, Zhang Zhan was exposed to the occasional judicial use of restraints such as is common-place in the capitalist West! Whilst Amnesty International refers to this legal restraining as ‘torture’ when it is used within the Chinese judicial system – exactly the same methods are declared ‘humane’ by Amnesty International when they are used in the United States (predominately upon Black suspects)! This one example demonstrates the racist hypocrisy used by the West in its reporting of issues happening in China. Zhang Zhan is a common criminal and not a ‘hero’. Her example should not be followed by the youth of the world who are requested to work together within the law to make the world a better place! Zhang Zhan is being supported by the Falun Gong Cult and its newspaper the Epoch Times – as well as its New Tang Dynasty TV Channel! Zhang Zhan might also be linked to the Eastern Lightning Cult – yet another religious aberration supported by US! These are all US government projects designed to create the false front of undermining the peace and tranquillity that exists within Mainland China, and to bring-down the Socialist System….”

  9. Consider the official NHS British figures with over 70,000 ‘covid deaths’

    The number of all those 70K deaths, who were healthy people under age 60, is 388 people total … about one-half of one per cent

    And the number of healthy people under age 40 who ‘died of covid’, is a mere 44 people, total, out of 70 fracking thousand… less than one-tenth of one per cent of all ‘covid deaths’

    Your chances of dying of covid if you test positive and are working age and healthy, is close to zero … it is almost no one dying, except senior citizens or sick people

    There is no excuse whatsoever for lockdowns destroying the economy and the middle class as they are doing

    WHO chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan just admitted that there is no evidence the vaccines stop transmission of covid to others … and there is almost no chance at all that a young healthy person will die of this … so no point to the vaccine for most

    But there are several people dead after getting the vaccine, most recently a 75-year-old Israeli who had a heart attack within 2 hours after the injection

    5000 Americans have had serious side effects from the jab … Nurse who got the covid vaccine had her face paralysed with Bell’s Palsy, ‘heartbreaking video’ in the article, whilst Twitter censors video telling the story
    https://eastvalleypost.com/heartbreaking-video-nurse-gets-bells-palsy-from-covid-vaccine-facial-paralysis/

    70% of some medical staffs are refusing to get the jab … Intentions to get the vaccine are dropping quickly, in Europe already it is less than half of Europeans, only about 40% of French or Poles now say they will get the jab, in Bulgaria it is 15%, says Reuters relating the IFOP poll

    Like Brasil’s Bolsonaro says, every gov’t has signed on for no liability, the vaccine can kill you or turn you into a crocodile and it is your tough luck

    • The NHS data is really a good source to test various hypotheses to come to valid theories. It is the best a unified socialist system could provide coupled with wild weather swings between seasons. The disease vanished in Summer and came roaring back when the weather worsened. It was worse further north earlier and as the microclimate of London froze it returned in a mutated form that matched the mutations in South Africa. London is also the most racially fucked up city that far north on the globe. LONDON is Blacks dying like flies along with Pajeets. Would be good to see a latitude adjusted map with various corrections for race. So much proof that the darkies don’t really suit a northern climate.

  10. Colour irrespective, you don’t need a vaccine.

    If you go herbally, the Berberine in Oregon Grape can completely stifle the ability of the China-Virus to hijack the PGE-2 in your system (a very necessary substance that is secreted by your cells to manage my bodily affairs) to attack your healthy flesh in your lungs.

    Moreover, Elderberry completely stunts the China-virus, though, unlike Berberine, it does it by turning down the spikes on the viral cells, which prohibits them from puncturing and infecting healthy cells.

    If you prefer synthetic medicine, Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin are readily available, cheap, and work as well as do Oregon Grape and Elderberry.

    Even without using any of these things in your household, your survival rate at waiting until you are very sick, and then going to the hospital, is very nearly 100%.

    So, again, the vaccine is only for those who have a submissive religious need to have their cellular structure modulated by Globalists.

  11. They knew fraud was coming but did not do anything substantial to block it cold.An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    • @Francis…

      Very very true – they did nothing.

      That said, there is a huge advantage to this – The Average Joe has seen the dysfunctionality of the political establishment in such living colour he is no longer willing to be passive.

      The Republican enablers did this country a huge favour, looking the other way, for they ushered back in the Spirit of ’76.

  12. The first.person I saw promoting inoculating blacks, hispanics, and america indians was none other that Melinda Gates (Bill’s wife).

    Considering the potential side effects from a rushed vaccine using for the first.time ever mRNA, it didn’t bother me that POC would be the guinea pigs, but then I realized this would set a precedent that puts Whites at the ‘end of the line’
    of health and welfare benefits.

  13. Of course an 85 year old black should get priority over a 25 year old white, but generally, nobody should be prioritised based on race alone when you line up apples with apples. I guess we’ll be seeing yet another case of non whites benefitting from something whites created…….to protect them against something that came from a non white country in the first place….

  14. There’s a lot of people who are scared of the vaccine and want to sound noble/give it to others first as a way to postpone having to take it.

    But honestly, how politicians word putting whites last for the vaccine just sounds terrible.

    • They should be hunted down and jabbed. They are the superspreading element of the population. Door to door dawn raids are needed.

      • This is why people who blame Orange Man for this are fools. It was stupid animal behavior that got us here, and it was inevitable.

  15. “Vaccines” are a finite resource. Therefore, “universal vaccination” is a policy pipe dream. And so the first question is WHO CAN OPT OUT of “vaccination” so as to determine the feasible scope of application.

  16. “Multiracialism makes it impossible to set rational goals. Instead, we must constantly cater to non-white delusions and claims of victimization. We are so politically crippled that the world’s sole superpower can’t solve a basic responsibility of government. What should be objective analysis disappears into the black hole of “racism.””

    Multiracialism is okay if somebody is in charge.

    That is what it was in our country for centuries, but, is no longer.

    The coalition that worked tirelessly over the last century+ to remove White Gentiles from an ascendent position in this country has been successful beyond it’s wildest dreams.

    Yet, in so doing, they have essentially rendered the nation unworkable and unlivable for all, the long and the short of which makes the victory a pyrrhic one for those who wanted White Gentiles down, because this nation is not long for this world.

    In the end, what still goes by the name of ‘The United States’ has slowly returned to what it was over a century ago – a collection of very disparate communities that do not a nation make, but, instead, comprise the many.

    Balkanization, so often discussed over the past decade +, by those politically astute, is arriven, and nothing anyone can do will stop the ripe fruit of that from either dropping to the ground or being picked.

  17. “Older people are in danger. The CDC reports that people between 75 and 84 are eight times more likely to be hospitalized and 220 times more likely to die from the disease than those 18–29.”

    And not by accident, for, while the media has worked 24/7 to instill abject terror into the populace, the FDA has made sure that emergency government powers, to insure that Hydroxychloroquine would be provided to every household, has been blocked.

    This Covid ‘crisis’ has been engineered from A-Z, not unlike so many other things that have befallen this nation in the last century.

    Looking up the road ten years, I wonder if the designers will be so happy with their work?

  18. “Isn’t it time to “save grandma” by making sure she gets it first? ”

    Not only are vaccines unnecessary for The China Virus, they will not work.

    Why?

    Because, like other previous attempts to develop a vaccine for the Covid family, the vaccine will always be considerably behind the viruses ability to mutate and, thus, outfox, the vaccine.

  19. “The COVID-19 pandemic is not President Trump’s fault, and liberal governors who hate him hardly covered themselves with glory.”

    Amen.

    In fact, ‘Liberal Governors’ have inflicted a harm upon the citizenry many fold more than the virus itself.

    I see it as the coup-de-grace of Leftist gestures that, behaviorilizing some deep-seated hostility from within, have kicked down most of what good remained in this nation.

    The Leftists win – they always wanted to destroy this nation and, whether it is the lawless Leftist bureaucrats of The United States’ Government, the Media, the Academic Establishment, or the many human embodiments of the various ‘isms’ that plague our land, what was once The American Dream is mostly an unremitting nightmare.

    I cannot even recognize this nation as a continuance of what I knew, growing up in the 1960 & 70s.

  20. Libtards “Wear a damn mask” “Always social distance yourself from others no excuses”
    Also Libtards “Let your white grandpa and grandma get the virus an die painfully and let our PoC pets get the vaccine first”

    Gotta love these Satanist libtard shitbags they never skip a beat and are always consistently evil and anti white to the core

    • Are they aware, if actually white, that they are doing it? Are the Jews aware of it consistently or is it instinctive spite?

  21. HW, can I talk to you for a moment – in private?

    This Greg Hood guy isn’t working out. He is obsessed with ghettoball and his articles are of interminable length. You need to replace him with Marcus Cicero. And it’s not just me saying this, everyone else here feels the exact same way – except for that dreadful Bonoconti fellow and the jew from North Carolina.

    P.S….did you know Krafty Worker is really Olde Dutch? It’s true, HW!
