Earlier this week President Joe Biden threatened to cancel Independence Day activities and parties if Americans continue to refuse the COVID-19 vaccine.
Even though not even last month Biden announced from the White House that Americans can expect to celebrate July 4th by having gatherings “in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day.”
“If we do this together, by 4 July, there is a good chance you, your family, and friends can get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day,” Biden said. “After a long, hard year, that will make this Independence Day truly special – where we not only mark our independence as a nation but we begin to mark our independence from this virus.”
Even this promise made by O’Biden failed to take into account the so-called “experts” at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has already established guidelines that already allow for small, socially distanced, outdoor gatherings.
On Tuesday, Biden, seeking a way to motivate Americans to get the jab, warned that families may have to cancel their July 4th plans if a large percentage of individuals continue to refuse the vaccine.
“More than 51 percent of American adults have received at least one vaccine dose, according to CDC data, indicating that herd immunity and the pandemic’s end are near,” the New York Post reported. “But Biden said at the White House that he’s not yet comfortable saying people can hold small outdoor gatherings on Independence Day.”
“Back on March 11, I outlined a vision of what America could look like by the Fourth of July — an America that was much closer to normal life that we left behind more than a year ago,” Biden said. “To celebrate our independence from this virus on July 4th with family and friends in small groups, we still have more to do in the months of May and June. We all need to mask up until the number of cases goes down until everyone has a chance to get their shot.”
It looks like Biden has forgotten what Independence Day even stands for.
