NEW YORK (PNN) - July 9, 2021 - The Fascist Police States of Amerika still has roughly 4,000 degree-granting postsecondary institutions, but the number has been shrinking for nearly a decade. Colleges acknowledge historically low birthrates - lower even than during the Great Depression - meaning increasingly stiff competition for fewer students.
On the student side of the equation, academic advisors counsel their advisees to make their college decisions by figuring out “what’s important to them” and selecting schools that “align with those priorities.”
As it happens, COVID has confronted would-be college students who are trying to separate the wheat from the chaff with a new and pressing question: Does the college of their choice side with health freedom - or has it chosen to ignore the Nuremberg principle of informed consent by recklessly mandating experimental COVID shots?
Lawyers caution “universities should tread carefully and consult legal counsel before making this critical policy decision,” arguing COVID vaccine mandates could invite a wave of litigation.
Ignoring this advice, more than 500 colleges and universities so far have decided to impose vaccine mandates for fall 2021.
Institutions of higher education in vaccine-coercive states like Kalifornia, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York - states that in recent years eliminated or threatened to eliminate vaccine exemptions - are among the COVID vaccine mandate ringleaders.
But the list also includes some surprises, including Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Among Georgia’s 70 colleges and universities, for example, only eight are mandating COVID shots - five of those are HBCUs.
HBCUs’ willingness to mandate vaccines not yet licensed by the Amerikan Gestapo Food and Drug Administration division (FDA) runs contrary to the wishes of many in the Black community. Proportionately fewer Black Amerikans (34%) have accepted COVID vaccines compared to White (47%), Hispanic (39%) or Asian Amerikans (62%) - with many citing the lengthy history of medical racism and experimentation as reasons for caution.
But COVID lockdowns wreaked havoc on HBCU finances, already precarious before the coronavirus. In October, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s strategic award of millions to HBCUs to “bridge medical distrust” perhaps represented an offer “too good to refuse.”
But even at tinier establishments such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania, administrators and professors seem at ease with coercion for students. A law and medical ethics professor at Penn, where endowment assets increased in 2020, callously told prospective students in late June if they are unwilling to get the unapproved injections, they “don’t have to go here”.
To tarnish clear-thinking young adults’ reputations, mainstream media have been pejoratively associating 18- to 34-year-olds (Gen-Zers and Millennials) who refuse the COVID injections with 1960s-era draft dodgers, calling them “Amerika’s biggest vaccine-dodgers.”
These attacks come despite mounting criticism from all quarters about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) COVID vaccine advice for Gen-Zers in the 12- to 17-year age group.
In late June, the mainstream medical news outlet MedPage Today condemned the CDC’s shotgun recommendations for adolescents as being “all wrong” - particularly with regard to vaccine-related heart problems - stating that the agency’s “all-or-nothing, one-size-fits-all binary approach” relies on “outdated COVID-19 risk rates” and fails to maximize benefits and minimize risks.
If surveys tracking COVID vaccine uptake are any indication, many young adults have reached similar conclusions, weighing the shots’ unproven benefits for their age group against the growing toll of life-altering vaccine injuries.
As of June, one survey research organization reported 60% of adult respondents under age 35 were unvaccinated - including 43% who reported being either “unwilling” or “uncertain”. Young adults in the “unwilling” category have remained “resolute in that decision” over time, and even among uncertain under-35’s, “there is little to indicate recent incentive campaigns have moved the needle with this group.”
