If the Lee County Republican Party has its way, Covid-19 vaccines will not be allowed in the state of Florida. Yes, you did hear that right. A “Ban the jab” resolution was passed by the Party with a majority vote. It will now go to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) for his consideration. Why does the Party want to ban this?
Well, Joe Sansone, who wrote the resolution, was quoted in a WINK News article by Michael Hudak and Taylor Wirtz as saying, “The Lee County Republican Party is going to be on the vanguard of this campaign to stop the genocide because we have foreign non-governmental entities that are unleashing biological weapons on the American people.”
NGOs from other countries releasing biological weapons? The holy lizard-like alien uses a space laser and lives on a flat Earth with a 5G transmitter. And there you were thinking The goal of the Covid-19 vaccine was to keep people from getting sick with SARS-CoV-2 and ending up in the hospital or dying as a result. What dope. Kids play tricks.
The WINK article also included a quote from Sansone that seemed to support conspiracy theory claims: “If you got this shot, you go home and hug your pregnant wife. She can have a miscarriage through skin contact.” Wait, so now you can’t hug people who have had the Covid-19 vaccine? How is that supposed to work from a scientific point of view?
Did Sansone back up his claim with any peer-reviewed scientific studies? Most likely not, since it will be hard to find peer-reviewed scientific studies that back up such a claim.
So, let’s clear this up. The resolution from the Lee County Republican Party isn’t just about opposing the Covid-19 vaccine requirements. This isn’t just about people who don’t want to get vaccinated. No, members of the Lee County Republican Party want the State Government to stop everyone else from getting the Covid-19 vaccine.
They seem to want the State Government to make it harder for people to get a vaccine that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (CDC). Talk about going too far.

Now, this doesn’t mean that every Republican Party member in Lee County agreed with this point of view and resolution. Surely, not every member thought that the Covid-19 vaccines were biological weapons that were being used to kill people. That’s right, right? Still, it did mean that most of the Party agreed with Sansone in some way.
It also meant that not enough people stood up for themselves and said, “Wait a minute. Do we really want to stand up for this right now?” In the following news segment on WINK, which is an affiliate of CBS in Southwestern Florida, Tara Jenner, the vice chair of the Lee County Republican Party, said, “The Executive Board does what the people decide.”
Even though this resolution says a lot about the Lee County Republican Party, it doesn’t mean much unless DeSantis does something else with it. Such a resolution can be like those YouTube suggestions that make you think, “How did they know I like to see things put in liquid nitrogen?” or “No, I don’t want to see another video of someone smearing butter all over.” This resolution does not force DeSantis to do anything. DeSantis can do something about it or ignore it, like how someone might ignore being called a meatball.
This is another part of the “let’s politicize Covid-19 precautions” story that has been going on in the Sunshine State. In October 2022, I wrote an article for Forbes about how Florida Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo, MD, Ph.D., who is in charge of the state’s Department of Health, said that men ages 18 to 39 shouldn’t get mRNA Covid-19 vaccines. This went against the advice of the CDC and many other scientific groups around the world.
When he said that kids shouldn’t get the Covid-19 vaccines, Ladupo went against what the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and real scientists around the world said. DeSantis, the person who appointed him, has criticized teens who wore face masks, asked for a Grand Jury to look into Covid-19 mRNA vaccines, and said that people who got the Covid-19 bivalent boosters are “more likely to get infected,” even though there is no real scientific evidence to support any of these claims.
Politicians and political parties can stop politicizing the Covid-19 pandemic and Covid-19 precautions like the Covid-19 jabs by, you know, not politicizing the Covid-19 pandemic and Covid-19 precautions. But politicians and people in political parties have kept taking these kinds of jab steps. And by not saying anything and letting this kind of politicking going on, their colleagues are, in effect, giving these efforts a boost.
