In our previous post, someone asked who has consistently worse takes: Slate or Jezebel. It’s only right, then, that we follow up our post on Jezebel with a hot take from Slate: it’s really very simple to get people vaccinated — just make them do it.

Jordan Weismann applauds New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for his mandate that educators be vaccinated or lose their jobs:
Last week, the deadline finally arrived for New York City public school employees to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or be placed on unpaid leave. The city’s mandate was far stricter than those being imposed in some other cities and states, as it did not give employees the option to be tested weekly in lieu of a shot. NYC’s educators simply have to get vaxxed if they want to keep collecting their salaries.
The result: 89 percent of the entire Department of Education workforce has been vaccinated.
Fascism. They love it. https://t.co/4I88MjBTI6

They’ll just become more anti-vax. And then the anti-vaxxed will win. Do you really want that?

That’s the secret to broad brutal conflict not vaccination 😂

I much prefer it when fascists just come right out and say what they’re really thinking rather than keeping up pretenses. More of this, please.

Slate's editors were like "Sensational headlines aren't giving the same return. Let's just run something a fascist newspaper would run."
Not fascist so much as morons who are thinking in terms of headlines and not in terms of "I'm going to have to pretend I didn't work at Slate"

Why does the left think it’s funny to threaten people into injections? It’s tragic.
