Undaunted by the American people’s growing dislike of him, President Joe Biden is doubling down on his tyrannical ways.
In his latest move, Biden has told businesses to ignore an appeals court order freezing his authoritarian vaccine mandate, The Hill reports.
Just ignore it
The Biden regime has ordered 84 million private-sector workers at companies with more than 100 employees to either take the COVID-19 injection by January or submit to burdensome weekly testing, with no obligation for their employers to cover the cost.
Unvaccinated workers are also required to wear face masks, signifying their second-class status in the newfangled social hierarchy Democrats have created.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals halted the extreme policy, citing its obvious “statutory and constitutional issues,” but Dear Leader Biden is shrugging.
At a briefing Monday, Karine Jean-Pierre — filling in for Jen Psaki, who is sick with COVID-19 despite being fully vaccinated — said that Biden wants employers to ignore the court order, an illegal move that she said would “save lives.”
“We think people should not wait,” she said. “We’re trying to get past this pandemic, and we know the way to do that is to get people vaccinated.”
When Biden first introduced the mandate in September, he made the absurd claim that vaccinated workers needed to be “protected” from unvaccinated employees.
As the mandate goes into effect, the White House is sticking with the message that coercing people to take medicine they don’t want is necessary to keep workers safe from a “grave danger,” and no different from requiring workers to wear hard hats.
Defending his indefensible mandate in court Monday, according to Politico, Biden resorted to fearmongering and demagoguery, claiming that “hundreds” of lives will be lost daily if there are any delays in forcing people to take the vaccine against their will.
Biden has shrugged at the mass firings of unvaccinated workers, saying they prove that coercion works. He recently claimed that he would rather have done things differently, but too many Americans are still unvaccinated. About 80% of U.S. adults have taken the shot.
Earlier this year, Biden suspended evictions, again citing the pressing danger of COVID-19, despite a Supreme Court ruling saying he lacked the authority.
