Domenech presses the ‘dangers of woke-left, centralized approach’ to vaccine distribution

纽约州政府. 安德鲁·库莫(Andrew Cuomo)’s 计划 for a vaccine distribution is awoke-left, centralized approachthat is dangerous to the American people, The Federalist publisher Ben Domenech said on Wednesday.

About a month ago, 政府. Cuomo was out there saying that he is going to sue to have control of the vaccine process when it came to a potential feud with the Trump administration. Now that he is given control of it, he is making already the same kind of decisions that we come to expect from him, full of bluster, full of stupidity, and without any kind of thought for the elderly citizens of New York State,” Domenech told美国新闻室.”

代表. 埃莉斯·斯特法尼克(Elise Stefanik), R-N.Y., 猛击 库莫 on Monday as theWorst Governor in Americafor prioritizing vaccines for drug addicts over seniors.

The Worst Governor in America streak continues,” Stefanik tweeted, sharing a link to a New York Post 报告 on the governor’s daily press briefing where he said that drug addicts would be among those administered COVID-19 vaccines.

This time prioritizing vaccines for 吸毒者 over tens of thousands of seniors who have been home bound since the start of the pandemic,” Stefanik wrote.

Regarding Cuomo’s plan for distributing the vaccine, Americans are witnessing thedangers of a centralized approach,” Domenech said.

Imagine a system in which that aforementioned woke left was determining which people should receive a vaccine based on equity. 根据, not to the medical needs, the health care needs of the people in the moment, but according to their own hierarchy of who would get it first,” 他说.


Cuomo’s press briefing on Monday came as the state was expecting to receive nearly 260,000 doses of Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna vaccines.

Cuomo said that shots would be given topriority populationsand that when more vaccines are available, these populations will expand.

A spokesperson for the governor’s office disputed Stefanik’s framing of Cuomo’s vaccine rollout plan, noting that nursing home residents would still be receiving the vaccine.


Although theelderly and most at-riskpopulations should be prioritized for vaccination, 的 “woke policiesare preventing that, Domenech stressed, 说 “wokepolicies having an impact on people is apparent.

Frankly, I don’t know what that would look like … I do think that it is one of those situations where you see the danger here of how these woke policies actually have an impact on people,” 他说.

It’s not just op-eds and people writing stupid things in the New York Time. It’s now actually being implemented as policy, 和, implemented, 我相信, in a dangerous and backward-looking way. We should prioritize the people who are at the most risk and, from my perspective, addicts are on that list, 但, they are not the people we should be prioritizing at the moment. It should be elderly across the state.
