Since House Bill 702 was passed and was signed into law by Governor Gianforte, banning discrimination based on vaccine status, the NEW AUTHORITARIANS have been freaking out about what this means for their endgame goal of creating a two-tiered apartheid society where the unvaxxed are punished for their medical decisions.
The argument being made by the authoritarians is that Gianforte and his dangerously stupid, anti-science Republicans enablers are keeping important tools from health officials to fight this pandemic. What kind of tools? If you can call DENYING MASK EXEMPTIONS a tool, then that’s one of ’em:
The rule, referred to by Murphy, came down Aug. 31 from the state health department, saying school districts should allow for kids to get exemptions from face-mask mandates in schools this fall.
Two weeks later, 18 state epidemiologists and state health experts delivered a letter to Gianforte’s public-health director, Adam Meier, blasting the rationale of the rule. They said statements used to support the rule, on the supposed drawbacks or ineffectiveness of masks, were misleading and false.
Yeah, FUCK exemptions! No kid should be able to weasel out of being muzzled by pieces of fabric and neck-gators, like that tween I saw who bravely spoke to the Covid task force about masks giving her migraine headaches and how socially isolating remote learning was for her.
Yeah, fuck that girl.
What other important tools are being denied our deeply caring health officials? I know, what if they wanted to quarantine the dirty unvaxxed for a LONGER period of time than the good Americans who did what the government told them to do? Can they do that under this terribly restrictive law?
Because the law forbids discrimination based on vaccination status, it also prohibits most incentives offered to anyone to get vaccinated, and prohibits schools or anyone else from requiring the non-vaccinated to be quarantined longer than vaccinated people, he says.
“So you can’t even quarantine the folks who were exposed unless you quarantine everyone, which isn’t practical, because you shouldn’t be quarantining folks that are fully vaccinated,” Murphy says.
Jim Murphy, the retired state epistemologist lamenting over this missed opportunity to impose a medical apartheid system in Montana, sounds really disappointed the “tool” of quarantining the unvaxxed for LONGER than good vaccinated Americans is being denied his jackbooted peers.
Another “tool” being denied these foot soldiers for BIG PHARMA is their ability to
promote coerce kids at school to get jabbed.
Murphy also says state health officials were told not to promote COVID-19 vaccines for school-age children, in school settings this fall.
“Typically, for the start of the school year, there’s a pretty heavy effort to vaccinate kids for the routine childhood disease,” he told MTN News. “And a lot of that occurs within school settings, with school-based clinics. Yet we were discouraged from promoting anything that had to do with a school-based clinic on COVID.”
I have two thoughts here. My first thought is BOO-FUCKING-HOO Jim Murphy, and my second thought is THANK YOU Greg Gianforte.
I’ll leave it there for today. Tomorrow’s post will be another “jab” at a school board member/non-profit employee who has no qualms about starting political Facebook groups, despite clear ethical limitations on engaging in such behavior.
Thanks for reading!
