(Republican Party News) – Folks who took to social media during Christmas might have noticed a very popular and widely-shared video of some very enthusiastic nurses singing during a White House Christmas celebration that will either make your Grinchy heart grow three sizes or make you cringe.
According to The Western Journal, the performance, which had garnered over 6.8 million views by the middle of the day on Christmas Eve, was delivered by the Northwell Health Nurse Choir, which hails from Long Island, New York, and was all part of the “Spirit of the Season” television special filmed at the White House.
The folks over at Newsweek have stated in a report that the 17-member group of nurses first came to fame by competing on “America’s Got Talent” this year, where they managed to earn a spot on the show’s finale.
The group of nurses then performed “We Need a Little Christmas” from the popular Broadway musical “Mame” for a clearly pleased First Lady Jill Biden and for millions of viewers tuning in on social media, many of whom sent messages praising the choir for their performance.

But it seems there’s a rather disturbing backstory to this group of singing nurses.
“As they bask in the limelight and enjoy celebrity status, over 1,000 of their coworkers will be celebrating the holiday with no job and, in many cases, an uncertain future ahead of them,” the report from WJ said.
“This is because their former coworkers at Northwell Health who refused to get the vaccine were fired earlier this year. These singing nurses are among those who complied to keep their jobs,” the report continued.
“In October, Northwell Health, which is New York State’s largest health care provider, fired 1,400 employees over their refusal to comply with the state’s strict vaccine mandate for employees of health care facilities, as The New York Times reported at the time,” WJ stated.
Earlier in the month, the Supreme Court allowed Gov. Kathy Hochul’s vaccine mandate, which does not allow for any sort of religious exemptions or regular COVID testing as an alternative to taking the jab, to remain in place, which has left thousands of healthcare workers across the whole state potentially facing unemployment. If they haven’t already been fired, that is.
They are taking these steps despite the fact there are massive shortages of workers in hospitals. In fact, the shortage is so horrible that Hochul had to declare a state of emergency back in September, which then enabled her to pull assistance into hospitals from the National Guard.
“Other states are facing health care staffing shortages as well, as omicron spreads and public health officials issue dire warnings, so others on Twitter also took a cynical view of the singing nurses in light of the Biden administration’s heavy-handed approach to pandemic vaccine mandates and public health advisories,” the report continued.
Nothing says “DEADLY PANDEMIC – HOSPITALS OVERWHELMED, LOCK IT ALL DOWN!” quite like the cringe nurse choir taking time to learn a song and dance and perform at the White House for their regime masters.

The mainstream media has constantly beaten us over the head with a narrative that states healthcare workers are heroes. And they do indeed deserve all of the praise and recognition they get for the dedication and care they put into helping folks during this time.
But yet, that narrative disappears as soon as thousands of them refuse to take the COVID vaccine in order to stay on the job. Now these nurses and doctors, who we have been told over and over again are indispensable, have suddenly become disposable.
With all of the shortages in staff at these hospitals, how in the world do the nurses from Northwell Health have time to do a televised Christmas special?
“If the virus is so very serious and deadly that it is critical for health care workers to sacrifice their personal consciences or set aside their objections to the COVID-19 vaccine, so dire that the White House is warning the unvaccinated that we are in for a ‘winter of severe illness and death’ and will soon be overwhelming the hospitals, why was the White House so disinterested in even public continuity behind their masking regulations that neither First Lady Dr. Jill Biden nor all of the singers bothered to be masked?” the report goes on to ask.
What’s disturbing is how the media is building up this choir, which is full of individuals who bowed their knee to the government’s vaccine mandate, and the fact the White House itself does not seem to care about the colleagues of this group who are now out of work and having a hard time paying the bills.
This is beyond wrong.
