DeSantis, other GOP governors oppose vaccine passports

A push by business leaders and the Biden administration to normalize so-called “vaccine passports” has alarmed many Americans, but pushback is brewing.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis continued to win the hearts of conservatives last week when he took a firm stand against the draconian proposal with an executive order, and now the governor of Mississippi is joining him in taking a stand, Just The News reported.

“I don’t think it’s necessary, and I don’t think it’s a good thing to do in America,” Gov. Tate Reeves said.

Governor opposes vaccine passports

Although the campaign for “vaccine passports” is in its early stages, many Americans fear they would lead to a loss of freedoms and privacy in a system of de facto forced vaccination requiring people to get the coronavirus vaccine to have a normal life.

DeSantis echoed the concerns of many Americans about the creation of “two classes of citizens based on vaccination” in his order last week, which bans businesses and state and local governments from demanding proof of vaccination.

“It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply participate in normal society,” the governor said. DeSantis has given arguably the strongest response of any Republican leader on this issue. It’s not clear if governor Tate plans to issue an executive order.

Biden backs draconian vaccine passports

Some Republicans, like Missouri Gov. Mike Parsons, say they’re fine with vaccine passports as long as it’s private companies enforcing them. It remains to be seen how well such arguments will stand up, as the Biden administration works closely with private industry to develop “guidelines” and make the passports a reality.

Big airlines (which have also, incidentally, opposed voter ID laws in states like Georgia at Biden’s behest) are clamoring for them, and while the White House says no one will be forced to get a vaccine passport, not everyone is feeling reassured after a year of arbitrary lockdowns.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has said he “does not believe” the federal government would try to mandate vaccine passports, but “it might be on the local level though” and that employers could make vaccination necessary. The Biden administration has acknowledged that standardizing passports in private industry could be “perceived as a Federal mandate.”

Opposition grows

This all comes as a media campaign is clearly underway to portray the passports as an innocuous invention that only Republican “conspiracy theorists” have a problem with, even though the White House is pushing for them in plain sight and some left-leaning groups are also raising objections.

Media outlets like The Washington Post have compared the passports to vaccination for global travel, but many suspect something far more intrusive is being considered: not vaccines for a trip overseas so much as a trip to the local grocery store.

The American Civil Liberties Union said there’s “a lot that can go wrong” and that “we don’t want to turn into a checkpoint society that outlasts the danger of COVID,” echoing Republicans in Pennsylvania who are pushing a ban. “These passports may start with COVID-19, but where will they end?” said Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Kerry Benninghoff (R).

  1. I’m definitely against it. Do your research and you will find that both the virus and the vaccinations are being used to carry out their plans for control.

    1. Just a reminder a genuinely deadly pandemic doesn’t require 24/7 advertising to remind you it exists.
      Real pandemics don’t need marketing campaigns and endless propaganda….. But

      Psychological Operations DO.

    1. Join the club my Facebook account was expunged and a couple others the communists dont like the free American citizens of a free constitutional republic

    1. Censorship is here and very active. SloJoe must be as pleased as punch, the First Amendment is gone, and he didn’t have to use an executive order. The tech billionaires did it with stealth tactics, but it’s just as gone as it would be if it was done legally. How long will the rest of the Constitution last? Weeks or months? We should have a national lottery on how soon the Second Amendment will disappear, the winner’s prize would be a picture of a gun. The law abiding citizens would lose their right to a gun, but the government and criminals, who are increasingly the same people, would keep theirs. The defunding of the police would be complete, they would be gone, never to return, and the criminals would rule the country. What a wonderful thought.

  5. Let me get this straight. The Liberals are demanding everyone get and carry a government issued Vaccine Picture ID card but they are absolutely dead set against being required to have a government issued Picture ID card to vote.
    Does everyone understand the word hypocrisy?

  6. I won’t waste any more time with this fake post. My posts don’t get posted and I don’t use cuss words. A simple few words about anything, and no posts. Good by you marshmallow media.

  8. David, to a Dem, hypocrisy is a disease of the hyp joint, the big joint that connects your leg to your body. They are as adept at spelling as they are about science. They actually don’t know anything, which becomes patently obvious as soon as they speak. In deference to them, we should remove warning labels from everything and let the stupidity problem solve itself. It’s only fair.
