The Salt Lake Tribune has called for the Utah National Guard to be used to round up and imprison those who refuse to take the coronavirus vaccine.
According to Townhall, the paper wallowed in its inner fascist in a January 15 editorial.
The editorial says in part:
Were Utah a truly civilized place, the governor’s next move would be to find a way to mandate the kind of mass vaccination campaign we should have launched a year ago, going as far as to deploy the National Guard to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere.
The paper also accused the state legislature of “surrendering to COVID pandemic,” because officials have not gone full fascist to suit the paper.
The Salt Lake City newspaper wants the Utah national guard to not allow unvaccinated people to leave their homes. This is mindless, anti-science insanity — omicron is infecting everyone — but these “journalists” are demanding totalitarianism. And they think they’re the good guys. pic.twitter.com/BYoskGNQ5R

Utah’s GOP Lt. Gov. blasted the paper for its fascist nonsense:
To be clear: Gov. Cox and I have always pushed for ppl to get vaccinated as the best way to keep from getting sick, stay out of the hospital, and not die from COVID. If you’re not, please get vaccinated. Omicron is infecting vaccinated ppl but vaccines are still the best defense.

Regardless, this just more evidence that Democrats – from the top to the last voter – have become anti-American fascists.
