Sen. Rand Paul dropped by Fox News late Friday to share a couple COVID truth bombs (and one disputed claim) that are already triggering anger and the gnashing of teeth among the far-left.
First and foremost, he told Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” host Laura Ingraham that everybody will be getting COVID “whether they like it or not.”
“The world is being inoculated by the virus, whether they like it or not. People are getting this by the millions. The third world’s going to get this. They’re never going to be vaccinated, but the whole entire world is being inoculated as we speak,” he said.
“Over half of my staff has had the Omicron variant. It’s spread throughout my community. Everybody I know is getting it. You will be inoculated one way or another,” the Kentucky Republican said.
Moreover, he continued, the vast majority of the world will obtain inoculation (i.e., immunity) from COVID by getting the virus, not getting vaccinated.
“It’s not going to be from big pharma. You’re going to be inoculated by nature. And what we found is the natural infection — you may not want it, and people unfortunately still will die from it — but if you get it and survive, it is giving profound immunity, and then giving an immunity better than the vaccine because the disease is now evading the vaccine.”
This is true, according to the CDC:

Ingraham nevertheless pushed back by noting that, despite the factual evidence, the zealots on the left “don’t care about natural immunity,” including the zealots in government, e.g., President Joe Biden.
Paul conceded her point but argued out that “it’s getting out” one way or another and “they can’t keep this a secret forever.”
The discussion then moved on to the government’s number one COVID zealot, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and his “doomsday prediction” about the “worst case scenario” if “we get hit with another variant,” as noted by Ingraham.
Paul responded by dismissing the widely criticized “doctor” for having “the most pessimistic outlook possible,” in addition to “an outlook that requires more government intervention and an output by the way that also elevates him to diva status so he can keep telling us what to do.”
Ingraham then turned their attention to California, where the state’s far-left legislators are moving to allow children as young as 12 to be vaccinated without their parents’ permission.
Paul responded by saying “medical malpractice” was being committed.
“I believe it’s medical malpractice to force vaccines on children, particularly adolescent males. We now have the scientific evidence that shows the risk of myocarditis for young males is greater for the vaccine than it is for the disease. We also know that the disease death rate is closer to one in a million,” he said.
“We also know that the more you get the vaccine, the higher your risk of myocarditis. So 90 percent of the myocarditis came with the second vaccine. What do you think it happens when you give them a third vaccine? I think universities like Chicago, Princeton, Yale that are mandating young males get a third vaccine, I think they’re going to be open to liability if any of these boys, these young men or women get myocarditis and, God forbid, dies.”
This remark about young males and myocarditis provoked the most backlash from the left, with the left-wing “news” site Mediaite leading the brigade and comparing the senator to highly successful podcaster Joe Rogan:

They are still trying to discredit vaccines, it’s just…diabolical.

While the comparison was meant as an insult, some might say it was much more a compliment than anything else.
Regardless, it’s true that the vaccine does post a myocarditis risk to young men.
“The COVID-19 vaccine made by Pfizer and BioNTech appears to put young men at elevated risk of developing a heart muscle inflammation called myocarditis, researchers in Israel say,” Science magazine reported over the summer.
“In a report submitted today to the Israeli Ministry of Health, they conclude that between one in 3000 and one in 6000 men ages 16 to 24 who received the vaccine developed the rare condition. But most cases were mild and resolved within a few weeks, which is typical for myocarditis.”
However, the idea that the vaccine poses a greater myocarditis risk than COVID itself is disputed.
“I can’t imagine it’s going to be anything that would cause medical people to say we shouldn’t vaccinate kids,” Douglas Diekema, a pediatrician and bioethicist at Seattle Children’s Hospital, said to Science magazine in response to the study published over the summer.
Yet months later in October, another study found “a higher than expected risk of myocarditis in young men after full vaccination,” as reported by The New York Times.
