The Salt Lake Tribune decided to be another data point.
Government officials, mostly but not exclusively Republicans, were apparently determined not to be caught governing in the face of this challenge. Any move or recommendation to mask up or, when safe and effective vaccines became available, to make vaccination a requirement of admission to public places and society in general was shouted down as an unwarranted imposition on individual freedoms.
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.
Seems like the Salt Lake Tribune Editorial Board is part of the 59% of Democrats who believe the unvaccinated should be locked in their homes under house arrest.
Of course the Editorial Board is willing to send armed troops to do it.
All because some people refuse to obey Biden tyrannical mandate to take a mostly useless vaccine.
