It was March when several unnamed White House officials told the Washington Post that the Biden-Harris administration was looking into the possibility of a national “vaccine passport” which would prove that a person has been vaccinated against the coronavirus. A former U.S. attorney who is now an L.A. Times columnist applauded the idea, saying it should “help break the resistance down.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who is almost certainly setting up a 2024 run for president, issued an executive order in April banning businesses from requiring COVID-19 “vaccine passports.”
Harvard professor and CNN analyst Juliette Kayyem is all for vaccine passports and perhaps even “forced vaccination”; whatever you want to call it, she wants to make it so burdensome for the unvaccinated to live that they’ll be “lured” into getting vaccinated.
Call it what you want — passport, forced vaccination — it doesn't matter. It's happening; the masking changes will depend on verification. So, lure the unvaccinated to the vaccinated side by burdening them in all sorts of ways. This is much like how TSA pre-check works. 2/2

Calling it forced vaccination? That does matter.
Call it what you want — Voter I.D. , Election Fortification — it doesn't matter. It's happening; the voting changes will depend on verification. So, lure the unverified to the verified side by burdening them in all sorts of ways. This is much like how TSA pre-check works.

Call it what you want — a date, forced intimacy– it doesn't matter. It's happening; the date will depend on his wishes. So, lure the women to the man's side by burdening them in all sorts of ways. This is much like how rape works.

This is a good thing in your opinion?

Wanna be a dictator much? This statement sounds like it could have come from any authoritarian regime of the last 100 years.

Sounds like fascism to me.

Your continued support for fascism is noted and will be remembered, thanks.
Assault the privacy and liberties of free peoples more, why don't you.

Sounds unethical to demand an unapproved immunization.

Yeah, we’re not gonna let you do that

TSA pre check has also been a resounding failure

LOL – no…
BTW – were you wearing your jackboots and brown shirt when you wrote your fascist tweet? 😂

People like you are a disgrace to America. If we do not have bodily autonomy we have NOTHING left. This is disgusting, commie bullcrap.

I can't wrap my head around the fact that you don't see history repeating itself. Show us your papers or you will be exiled.
— PuddinT. aka We Love You Austin (@Christeenm75) May 15, 2021
Glad you support going back in time where people have to show papers to travel freely. Maybe we should force people to take an IQ test so that all the morons get locked up so we don’t have to deal with stupid people anymore. Would you be okay with that?

Why would I care about the unvaccinated? I got mine, what they do is their problem, screw them. Oh, that’s right, authoritarian left must be appeased at all costs.

Authoritarianism is ugly and well…..it makes you a gross person
— Aaron (@asjones_) May 15, 2021
Burden citizens "in all sorts of ways" who haven't gotten an emergency use authorization mRNA injection until they comply with the demands of our overlords. You should be in a high-level position within the Chinese Communist Party, would fit in PERFECTLY!

You are delusional.

I have always said that TSA security checks were just a deliberate first step to getting people used to giving up their rights. You have confirmed that. Thanks for proving me right.
— George K Stevens (@xdemo2016) May 15, 2021
You go ahead of give up your rights to medical privacy if you want. I will not be giving up mine.

It's not going to happen.
You may think it will and some places may try but in the end it will not happen.

Who exactly will be “burdening” the unvaccinated and how? And why would the vaccinated care anyway? They’re immune.
