The day has come in America when a free citizen must show proof of being vaccinated or else be denied eating in a restaurant.
Unconscionable…. and yet here we are.
In the most aggressive and invasive “safety measure” to date, you won’t believe what this U.S. city has just unleashed with their latest COVID-19 mandate.
It should come as no surprise politicians in New York City are abusing their power once again – but this time it’s worse than one could’ve ever imagined.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio recently introduced the “Key to NYC Pass” which forces not only employees of indoor establishments to get vaccinated – but all patrons too.
This means that if you want to eat at a restaurant with friends or head to the gym to work out, unless you’ve gotten at least one of the two COVID-19 shots – and can show proof of it – you’ll be denied entry.
De Blasio claims he worked with Biden officials to make sure this latest mandate “holds up in the courts” and showed no remorse in forcing New Yorkers (and those who visit) to get vaccinated.
The New York Times reported:
“This is a miraculous place literally full of wonders,” Mr. de Blasio said.
“If you’re vaccinated, all that’s going to open up to you. But if you’re unvaccinated, unfortunately you will not be able to participate in many things.”
His arrogance is stunning, though not surprising.
And of course, King Biden is just loving it.
Biden loves forcing people to get vaccinated so much that he’s encouraging other places to follow New York City’s lead.
The New York Times continued:
“President Biden said on Tuesday that he believed other cities should follow New York City’s lead in requiring proof of vaccination for restaurants and gyms.
“You have to give proof that you’ve been vaccinated or you can’t come in,” Mr. Biden told reporters.”
It’s no wonder under Biden so many Americans have reported increased travel anxiety, never knowing what they’ll be forced to endure next.
Small businesses have been crushed by COVID-19 mandates – many having no choice but to permanently shut their doors because they just couldn’t sustain the loss of income.
And now with this latest mandate, bureaucrats are all but putting the final nail in the coffin for these business owners.
Folks – we’ve officially crossed the point of no return.
Us writers here at Proud American Traveler were alarmed when we got wind of Israel’s “Green Pass” that forces people to show proof of vaccination or else be denied service.
And having covered this issue extensively, I knew it was only a matter of time before the same thing would happen here in America.
The slippery slope started with forced mask mandates all across America, and picked up when New York City instituted the “Excelsior Pass”, forcing folks to show digital proof of either having received the COVID-19 vaccine or having negative test results – otherwise, they’ll be denied access to certain venues and events.
And then it was clear we were in big trouble when Los Angeles demanded patrons wear masks EVEN IF they’re already vaccinated!
Sure enough, cites and states around the country have followed suit – almost competing to have the strictest measures as if it’s a contest.
But now we’ve hit a whole new level of insanity where a politician can actually FORCE a citizen of the United States of America to get a vaccine – or else deny them the freedom to live their lives and participate in everyday activities like eating out with friends or going to the gym!
While leftist bureaucrats are power-hungry and eager to take away Americans’ freedoms, not all politicians are so gleeful.
In fact, several politicians who actually cherish our freedoms like U.S. Senator Rand Paul have spoken up regarding the lockdowns and mandates.
The Courier Journal reported:
“It’s time for us to resist. They can’t arrest all of us. They can’t keep all of your kids home from school,” he said in a video he posted on Twitter on Sunday.
“We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say: ‘No, not again.'”
It’s as if we’ve learned nothing from the panic of last year.
And if vaccines are so effective…
… then why are cities like Los Angeles requiring those who’ve already been vaccinated to STILL wear a mask?!
Something just doesn’t add up here.
So if you’re planning on traveling this fall – brace yourselves.
New York City has set a dangerous precedent that many cities will likely follow.
As if you needed yet another reason to STAY AWAY from New York City – this latest mandate should be enough to finally convince you!
