Republican governor tries to SHAME people into getting vaccinated [VIDEO]

The ‘Republican’ governor of Maryland and failed presidential candidate, Larry Hogan, actually tried to shame the unvaccinated people of Maryland into getting the vaccine today:

Hogan poured it on thick today, telling the unvaccinated residents of his state that they are “willfully” putting themselves and others “at risk of hospitalization and death” AND that they are “threatening the freedoms of all the rest of us”. Meaning, he might just lock the state down again if they continue to refuse to get vaccinated.

At one point he frustratingly said “pleases, just get the damn vaccine”:

This is terrible. If you really want to convince people to get vaccinated, shaming them is not the way to do it. Telling them that THEY are the problem and that their freedom to not get vaccinated is threatening the freedoms of everyone else – well that’s just authoritarian bullcrap, to put it nicely.

No, the way to do it – if that’s even possible now – is to put good information out there about the vaccines and to let them decide. Also, the FDA fully approving the vaccines, which is apparently coming soon, would go a long way.

Shaming people and threatening them like this will only make them angry and more stubborn when it comes to getting the vaccine, and it won’t help anything. Rather, it will likely make it worse.
