(ReliableNews.org) – For years, Democrats have tried to divide the country along racial lines. They’ve been largely unsuccessful even though it has created a great deal of tension at times. Republicans have slammed their divisive efforts and worked hard to thwart them.
Now the Left has changed course and is trying to use the COVID-19 vaccine to divide people. While millions of Americans have been vaccinated, there are still those who don’t want to, as is their right, or can’t get the vaccinations. Unfortunately, many Liberals don’t see it that way.
On July 29, President Joe Biden announced new requirements for federal employees. They are all now required to sign forms agreeing to either get the COVID-19 vaccine or follow strict testing guidelines. Those who don’t get the vaccine will have to wear masks, undergo weekly testing, socially distance and follow other rules.
The new rules will impact upwards of 7 million federal employees and contractors. Biden isn’t the only Democrat implementing vaccine rules.
Vaccine Passports in the Big Apple
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio recently announced that people wanting to enter gyms, performance venues, indoor dining, bars and other places would be required to be vaccinated. The mandate begins on August 16, but authorities won’t start enforcing it until September 13.
“If you want to participate in our society fully, you’ve got to get vaccinated,” De Blasio said.
Fox News’ Sean Hannity discussed the mandate, saying it’ll disproportionately impact black people in the cities. He pointed out that the Left often calls voter ID laws the “new Jim Crow,” but the mayor is now requiring the same thing to prove they have been vaccinated.
No Fly List?
On August 3, former Assistant Secretary for Homeland Security Juliette Kayyem wrote an op-ed for The Atlantic calling for unvaccinated Americans to be put on the federal no-fly list. The original title of the article was “Unvaccinated people belong on the no-fly list,” but the website updated it to “Unvaccinated People Need to Bear the Burden.”
Kayyem argued a no-fly list for unvaccinated people is an “obvious step that the federal government should take.” She claimed there are already regulations in place that would set a precedent to allow the government to take that step. “Flying is not a right,” she said.
Preventing people from living a normal life and ostracizing them because they didn’t undergo a medical procedure is just like the segregation of the Jim Crow era. It is wholly unAmerican.
