On Thursday’s “Politics War Room with James Carville & Al Hunt,” long time Democratic political strategist Carville said he has an idea on how to revitalize 2022 election prospects for his Party: make it legal to punch people who are not vaccinated.
“I wish what they’d do is pass a law to make you immune from liability if you punch some unvaccinated person right in the face, which I’d really like to do,” Carville said. “If you ask me what’s my first reaction to you if you’re not vaccinated, you don’t have any medical reason not to be, you’re a piece of sh*t, OK? I just want to punch you in the god—-ed face. That’s the way I look at these people,” Carville said.
“Agreed,” Hunt replied.
Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) empathized with Carville’s frustration, saying “people should voluntarily do whatever the government tells them to do. That’s the only way we can have a unified country. We’ve tried to gain compliance by threatening the jobs of those who don’t comply. We’ve tried barring them from travel and public spaces. But they stubbornly refuse to get with the program. I guess they figure there aren’t enough police to make them obey. I think immunizing any private citizen who punches an unvaccinated jerk will encourage a hundred million who are vaccinated to carry out guerilla action against the scofflaws. Perhaps knowing you could be decked by anyone, anywhere, at any time might add a powerful new incentive to submit to being vaccinated.”
Health & Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra suggested that “sweetening the deal by rewarding each puncher a crack pipe would stimulate those most likely to want to punch someone to actually get off their duffs and do it. I mean, the guys who are punching random Asians without any compensation could be redirected to target the unvaccinated if a proper incentive is offered.”
