Desperate Dems Demand Medical Records

by Kerry Dougherty

Oh look. Desperate Virginia Democrats — along with their pals in the media — are trying to weaponize COVID-19 vaccines against what appears to be a resurgent Republican Party in the commonwealth.

It isn’t enough that gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin has said REPEATEDLY that he’s vaccinated, that he believes Virginians should be vaccinated and has even recorded a public service announcement urging his fellow Virginians to take the vaccine so the commonwealth can be open and prosper.

Nope. That isn’t good enough for the lockdown-loving authoritarians on the far left.

Terry McAuliffe maliciously refers to Youngkin as an “anti-vaxxer” because the GOP candidate doesn’t believe the government should be forcing people to be vaccinated.

McAuliffe knows he’s lying about Youngkin. He doesn’t care. Frustrated that his campaign has no life, and indignant to find himself in a statistical dead heat with Youngkin, McAuliffe is trying to scare people into voting for him.


The Democrat who believes parents should have no input into what is being taught in the schools also seems to believe that the government should hold people down and jam shots in their arms against their will and regardless of their health, their doctors’ advice or their religious beliefs.

That’s deeply disturbing.

Now the Dems have turned their attention to Winsome Sears, an African- American Republican and former Marine running for lieutenant governor. There’s nothing the far-left dislikes more than an African-American who dares to belong to a different political party.

The Democrat rules book says all blacks and all women must vote Dem. To do otherwise is to be a kook.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch just ran a front page story with this headline: “Ayala Slams Sears For Not Saying Whether Or Not She’s Vaccinated.”

Geez. I’m old enough to remember when one’s medical information was considered private.

Here’s what Sears had to say about that:

News flash: I have never stated publicly if I’m vaccinated. And I won’t. It’s no one’s damn business but mine.

Yes, I know, in a burst of some kind of weird look-at-me fever, it seemed everyone on social media posted photos of themselves getting the shot or smooching their vaccine cards. I didn’t participate in the ridiculousness.

I’m not sure why folks believe it’s important to tell the world that they’ve been vaccinated. I’ve never known anyone to do the same with flu shots or colonoscopies.

If Democrats have their way, vaccine passports are coming. Some may want to live in a show-me-your-papers America.

I’m not one of them.

Apparently Sears feels the same way. Bravo. Good for her.

I won’t tell you if I’m vaxxed, but I will tell you who I’m voting for: Winsome Sears.

    Glass house.

    Now I thought a key argument from the Dems was that health care is a private matter between patients and their doctors, ala Roe v. Wade. Too bad America’s toilet paper media company cannot see the irony.

    But that would take integrity, something most journalists lack.

    I normally do not comment on Dougherty posts but I am this time. Voters need to know about the health conditions of their elected leaders. This is not a privacy issue but an important public service one. Also, being honest about health can help in other ways. Back in the 1950s, President Dwight Eisenhower suffered a heart attack while playing golf. Rather than hushing it up, he put out details about it. Not only did he survive, but his wise and selfless act promoted many U.S. citizens to be more aware of heart issues. He likely saved many lives.Voters have a right to know. BTW, I notice that Bacons Rebellion advertises itself as “non-partisan, but Dougherty seems to be running her own pro-GOP campaign parade. And that seems to be OK.

      Give me a break. Democrats go on and on about the privacy of medical decisions except when they don’t think they should be private. Even Slow Joe Biden said earlier that the decision to be vaccinated was been doctor and patient. But now, with Biden no longer seen as competent, and the polls tightening, medical privacy is tossed out the window. And, of course, the subservient media doesn’t ask the question — what’s the difference?

      When is President Biden going to tell the American public about his health condition?

    Her body, her choice….except…..(See, they don’t actually believe what they preach.)

    I got into a Twitter spat over this yesterday and noted that Sears has not been infected by Dominion money, but Ayala had taken THAT huge injection after promising not to, and the other guy had a hissy and called me a troll!

    On WRVA this morning Dr. Holsworth reported that the D’s think this is a killer good issue for them and will prove fatal for Sears. I’m not so sure. They keep forgetting that it is not just a subset of Republicans who are refusing the vaccine, the uptake is slower in the black community than the white community. People are refusing even to the point of risking their jobs. And plenty of those happy to be vaccinated might still be troubled about this move to have their status tattooed on their foreheads everywhere they go.

      Speaking of bodies and choices, yesterday at HT, the spousal unit and I bought some Cado Ice Cream. If you don’t know what it is, I’m only 12 hours ahead of you. It’s “ice cream” made entirely from avacado puree. Aside from the fact that it doesn’t melt, it sure tastes like and feels like Blue Bunny to me.

      Where is this country headed?

        $5 a pint at Target. That comes out to $20 for a half-gallon.

        At those prices, it should be a big seller.

          See? Gasoline is cheap even at European prices.

            A lot more useful than avocado ice cream, too.

      That’s because even Dominion, while wantonly wasteful of money, does have an expectation of some RoI.

    I am normally an advocate for individual freedom but in the case of covid, the only way to stop the mutations is through vaccinations. So, in this case a government mandate is in the public interest.

    TMT. You are missing my point. I want to protect individual rights regarding health records. But that does not extend to people running for political office. Let’s say Youngkin wins. He dies or gets badly ill and Sears is the new governor. What’s her health? I think the electorate has a right to know.

      I see your point. I’m just skeptical given the retreat by the Ds from condemning Northam and demanding his resignation to McAuliffe (who is a decent person in my eyes) thanking Ralph for his endorsement. I don’t think this has a damn thing to do with health. It’s all about tightening polls.

        Perhaps candidates for POTUS have a duty to disclose health status, but not a governor or LG. They croak we get another one. Gee, shall we start asking for a list of all shots and tests? Flu can kill, so that shot is your business? No. Can we see EKGs? Women debating abortion….do we question them about that in their own case? Ever terminate a pregnancy, maam? Nothing requires her to disclose (and lies about Ike’s health were constant, btw.) Biden has proven he has no more power over this pandemic than his predecessor did.

    Haner. As usual, the bullshit factor is getting a little out of control here. I am not saying that all the medical histories of political candidates should be open for public review. Only those that might affect the candidate’s ability to perform their mission. COVID is one of them.

    1. Would you support requiring President Biden to reveal any medical records documenting his encroaching senility?
