A “door-to-door” campaign will be needed to persuade Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccination, according to Joe Biden and White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, whose declarations prompted harsh criticism on social media.
“In today’s briefing we discussed how our administration is going to devote the remainder of the summer to a special focus on five ways to make gains and getting those of you who are unvaccinated vaccinated,” Biden rambled, according to The Daily Wire. Biden continued in his slurred, faux-slangy style: “Because here’s the deal. We are continuing to wind down the mass vaccination sites that did so much in the spring to rapidly vaccinate those eager to get their first shot and their second shot for that matter if they needed a second. Now we need to go to community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes door to door, literally knocking on doors to get help to the remaining people, protected from the virus.”
It’s almost as if Americans are incapable of making the decision themselves.
Christian Action Network President and founder Martin Mawyer wrote on CAN’s Facebook page of a sign he plans to post on his door:
“Dear COVID vaccine canvasser, please help yourself to a pocket edition of the U.S. Constitution and pay particular attention to Amendment #2. Brush up on the other Bill of Rights as well. Please be advised, some people might not be as nice and forgiving as me. Also, I have sent a picture of you to our local sheriff’s department and advised them that your next approach at my door will be considered trespassing. Have a nice day and smile as 15 cameras watch.”
Psaki carried on the door-to-door theme in a press briefing, saying: “The president will outline five areas his team is focused on to get more Americans vaccinated. One: a targeted community by community door-to-door outreach to get remaining Americans vaccinated, by ensuring they have the information they need on how both safe and accessible the vaccine is.”
Rep. Dan Crenshaw fired back, “How about don’t knock on my door. You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose. Why is that concept so hard for the left?”
Country star John Rich had a more hospitable plan: “FYI: To any of Biden’s missionaries who feel moved to knock on my door to push me to get the jab, I’ll kindly invite you in, tell you about Jesus and make you listen to Ronald Reagan speeches until dinner. If you’re still here, we’ll have a slow, full reading of the Constitution.”
