Yeah, that's the entire point of a mandate, you f*cking idiot.

What would happen if Biden looked at Ronald's union playbook when it comes to border control?

We need to save money so we can afford more tax cuts for billionaires, and since many of those billionaires made their fortunes by outsourcing why don't we do that with border control jobs? The displaced workers will benefit from trickle down economics and become better off for it, right?

Oh no! Color me shocked! The same Border Patrol agents who destroy bottles of water left out so people don't farking DIE in the desert think getting a vaccination is infringing on their civil liberties.

Well, fark the dumbasses. If they're too stupid to get vaccinated in the face of a global pandemic, I hear TSA is hiring.

Oh wait, they've got a vaccine mandate too.

I wonder if Fox still tries to scare their viewers by telling them that immigrants aren't vaccinated.
 
2021-12-02 1:23:53 AM  
Now, the Biden administration is faced with a new challenge: what to do about CBP personnel who have still not complied with the mandate?

Farking hell. Seriously? YOU'RE the government. THEY are government employees. Oh, what to do. What to do . . .

Probably tell them they ARE vaccinated - they're being controlled in an army of unstoppable brownness that's coming for their guns and their wimmenz

Make a good salary being buff to immigrants. Lose it? No, folds for the buck. Don't vaxx?  McDonald's hiring.  I'd sling his complaint & make'm take a walk in desert for being a fraud.
 
2021-12-02 2:30:53 AM  
fark them. During TFG's administration, the Border Patrol and ICE disproportionately hired inappropriate people

Damn straight I'm saying that people's political attitudes are an aspect of what should be considered in hiring for such jobs. If you have an anti-immigrant bias, you don't belong in those jobs. Those jobs REQUIRE a degree of empathy to people whose circumstances have impelled them to risk their lives to illegally cross borders. I don't require sympathy, I require empathy. If you don't understand the difference, there's something defective in you.

Then, given everything we have learned, if you are somehow anti-vax, there's about a 90% correlation to having a defective understanding of immigration based upon a political bent.

So if you are politically opposed to vaccination, leave the damn job. You're poison. Get yee gone. Good riddance.

"Illegal aliens, some infected with COVID, are encouraged to come here and thousands are released into unsuspecting communities," one union tweet reads.

On a side note: How the fark does a union representing border patrol workers feel justified using this kind of language?  Is this kind of ideology representative of most border control workers?  If so, can one only assume that these border control workers are nothing but thugs looking to impose their sweaty authority on some brown people?

Because when you work as a cop the citizens around you are the enemy and when you work border patrol the folks on the other side of the border are your enemy. It's why they have the guns and the radios and the uniforms.
 
2021-12-02 2:48:51 AM  
You'd think they'd WANT to be vaccinated against the "diseased, unwashed, filthy illegal masses bringing Covid over the border". Can't protect the line if you're sick or dead.
 
2021-12-02 2:50:16 AM  
Interesting FAFO self-selection of probably the worst most Hiltertastic border guards.  Oopsie.  I don't know about the rest of you but man am I owned once again!

They represent the views of pretty much all of their members. You only join the Border Patrol to beat up and kill brown people.

Read up on "I'm 10-15" sometime (the extremely racist/violent FB page run by CBP agents and their supervisors), and you'll see just what many CBP agents truly think. And it was far worse than you'd expect (posting pictures of Trump raping AOC, for example).

To no one's surprise, it was up for nearly a year before FB did anything.

i would bet there are a lot of border patrol agents right now, who have been vaccinated, hoping they move forward with the firings. My guess is the correlation between toxic assholes and vaccine refusal is quite high.

This is how you get people vaccinated.

You don't ask nicely. You don't try to change their mind. You don't do outreach or studies or marketing.

You take the leverage you have and push them to do what you want.

That's the funny thing about idiot conservatives, they have the political memory of goldfish and will never be on your side.

Making them angry as a consequence of achieving your goals doesn't matter. They already hated you. They already wish to kill you. Give them a legitimate out ("i had to do it for my job!") and they'll shut up about it or carry on and lie.

Just make them get the vax so we can move on to the next thing.

JFC, they're not exactly the brightest and the best, are they?
 
2021-12-02 4:10:55 AM  
Strictly adhering to the right wing talking point that covid is spread at the border, one would think those geniuses who just want to bust people down for looking for a better life would farking vaccinate themselves against which they fear.

/Looks at that statistic about law enforcement deaths bring mainly covid deaths

Oh, right. They're just dumb farkers who want to abuse immigrants.
 
2021-12-02 4:19:18 AM  
The unvaccinated are Typhoid Marys spreading disease, nothing more. If we could arrest & confine her in an isolated place, why can't we do the same with the unvaxxed?

On the other hand, they are killing Republicans which is a pretty good way to keep their crazy asses from the polls, so I'll keep getting my shots and wearing my mask whilst stepping over their speed-bump like corpses. I'd rather see them in caskets than voting booths.
 
2021-12-02 4:20:43 AM  
Is sociopathy a religion?  Like... can I claim that a complete lack of giving a shiat about anyone but myself is my deeply-held religious belief that exempts me from vaccination?

Hmmmm.....

On the one hand this sounds like a lucrative, possibly-even-tax-deductible way to fleece antivaxxers.

On the other hand, can you imagine the level of unvarnished whacko you would have to deal with if you put a call out for people to join your anti-vaxx church based on an appeal to their total lack of compassion for others?  Bottom of the bottom of the barrel.  And it's the barrel that is labelled "untreated human waste -- biohazard".

One where their favorite president ever, TFG, got them used to hearing people say things that are just a bluff? "Lock her up". "Build the wall". "I love Melanie."

Fire them. If they can't be fired right away then put them on gardening leave until the day they can be fired.

I really wish the Democrats would finally realize this and stop giving a shiat about conservative tantrums. "We can't do xyz because conservatives will complain" is not a good reason not to do it, but it's basically the guiding principle of Democratic policy these days.

So the assholes have self-identified as assholes.  Fire them all.

This seems like an incredibly easy solution.

Have any of these anti-vax toolbags gotten the shot and reported back that exactly nothing happened to them afterwards? This guy is outraged--outraged!--that he has to get vaccinated to keep his job. Will he still be outraged when he survives with no ill effects?

How do they process all the sound and fury which ultimately signifies nothing?
 
2021-12-02 6:17:17 AM  
80% of CPB is vaccinated -- 92% of the federal work force.

The mandate is working -- and I guess that's the problem.

Not sure how this plays out electorally placing your political capital with a small minority of voters, with the rest irritated and annoyed at the message given that they complied.

I know if I sent a company wide email decrying the CEO I'd be out on my ass as soon as it was sent.

Maybe in this instance we should run the Government like a company.

While the agent's email starts off angry - "You said, 'STOP THE SPREAD!!' but that should have been our battle cry, 'STOP THE SPREAD OF ILLEGAL ALIENS INTO THE COUNTRY'"

There's your problem with the BP right there.  It's not about ethically and dutifully following the law.  It's nativist histrionics that motivates them.
