Appearing on Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night, author and journalist Bari Weiss not only discussed how she handled the COVID-19 pandemic when it was announced versus now, but she also criticized the government for mandates, restrictions, and school closures that have done little to stop the spread of COVID-19. And while some might believe Weiss is just another person who has always been against the COVID-19 mandates, the podcast host admitted when first announced, she followed the rules religiously. At least, until she read the data.
Sitting back in his chair, as can be seen in the video below, Maher lets Weiss take control as she stated, “We were told you get the vaccine, you get the vaccine and you get back to normal. And we haven’t gotten back to normal. And it’s ridiculous at this point. I know that so many of my liberal and progressive friends are with me on this and they do not want to say it out loud because they are scared to be called anti-vaxxed or to be called science deniers or to be smeared as a Trumper.”
And showing how this isn’t her personal opinion, Weiss, who again followed the rules set by the Biden administration, added, “I’m sorry, but if you believe the science, you will look at the data that we did not have two years ago and you will find out that cloth masks do not do anything. You will realize that you can show your vaccine passport at a restaurant and still be asymptomatic in carrying Omicron. And you realize, most importantly, that this will be remembered by the younger generation as a catastrophic moral crime.”
Weiss used Flint, Michigan as an example where virtual learning is now indefinite even as self-harm among young girls continues to climb. She concluded, “That is why we need to end the lockdowns and declare it a pandemic of bureaucracy.”

Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
