If Utah was a “truly civilized” state, the governor would have deployed the National Guard to ensure those without proof of vaccination would be barred from going anywhere, the Salt Lake Tribune Editorial Board wrote Saturday.
Per the article:
Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere. But it may be too late for that, politically and medically.
“In the meantime, get vaccinated. If you are sick, stay home. And let your elected officials at all levels know that you expected them to lead us out of this mess, not stand by and meekly express concern,” the piece continued.
The board also claimed there was “lots of blame to go around”:
While Biden and elected Democrats have continued to impose vaccine mandates on American citizens, they have routinely exempted illegal aliens from such requirements,” Breitbart News reported.
In a social media post on Saturday, Utah Lieutenant Gov. Deidre Henderson said the truth was the omicron variant was “out of control everywhere.”
“Even in places with mask and vaccine mandates,” she wrote:
“We always push vaccines, but even vaccinated ppl are catching it. It’s easy to take shots from the cheap seats but this is the sort of nonsense that makes editorial boards irrelevant,” she concluded.
