Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has come out vehemently against vaccine passports:
— South Florida Sun Sentinel (@SunSentinel) March 29, 2021
DeSantis made those remarks after news that the Biden administration is considering the idea:
Several unnamed White House officials told The Washington Post that the Biden Administration is looking into the possibility of a national "vaccine passport" which would prove that a person has been vaccinated against the coronavirus. https://t.co/JaAyj9Odn3 #coronavirus #COVID19

But one tweet that’s getting plenty of attention right now is from Harry Litman, a former U.S. attorney who is now an L.A. Times columnist. Here’s his “pro-vaccine passports” take:
Vaccine passports are a good idea. Among other things, it will single out the still large contingent of people who refuse vaccines, who will be foreclosed from doing a lot of things their peers can do. That should help break the resistance down.

First of all, “break the resistance down”? Wow…
Not to dunk on this guy (ok… dunking a little bit) but I do kind of enjoy how we've gone from "RESIST" to "that should help break the resistance down" https://t.co/u1pBlRFAoM

That was a fast pivot!
When you accidentally admit you wish the United States were more creepily authoritarian. https://t.co/U9zPW3iTF4

Oddly enough this rhetoric comes from the side that called Trump an authoritarian wannabe.
This situation is exposing a lot of people for who they truly are. https://t.co/pPTtCRKvzo

Nothing to see here. Just a deep state agent turned corporate press propagandist literally calling for a caste system in the USA. https://t.co/walFHzMAGs

The most disturbing thing about what Harry said isn't what he actually said, but the fact that he is a former US Attorney and DOJ official and he still said it.
No wonder the DOJ is such an overly politicized mess these days.
Good grief. https://t.co/t2XpDFwLNU

The Left has so thoroughly and completely abandoned the "my body, my choice" argument. And yet when this is all over, they'll pick up the bodily autonomy flag again and pretend like none of this ever happened and they'll get away with it. https://t.co/aWUNCOSFwe

We assume the “voter ID is racist” crowd won’t take issue with Litman’s tweet in support of requiring vaccination passports.
