BLM Claims Vaccine Mandates As Racist

Have you noticed that the Credentialed Media talking point about all the vaccine hesitant people being Trump voters has quietly diminished as of late? Perhaps they finally noticed that blacks and Latinos have a high vaccine hesitancy rate. And now

Black Lives Matter of Greater New York leader blasts vaccine mandates as racist and disrespectful

Black Lives Matter activists have turned on New York City’s leadership over what they claim are racist COVID-19 vaccine requirements.

Mayor Bill De Blasio has aggressively pushed a “vaccine passport” system that bars entry to restaurants, gyms, and other public places without proof of COVID-19 inoculation. But with black residents lagging the overall population in vaccinations, the rules are disproportionately affecting a minority group usually in step with Democratic policies. The schism came to a head on Monday, when Black Lives Matter of Greater New York launched a protest outside a restaurant where enforcement of the policy sparked a melee.

Hawk Newsome is a black activist and co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York — one of the many prominent Black Lives Matter organizations outside the hierarchy of the Black Lives Matter Global Network. He founded the group with his sister, Chivona Newsome. Both siblings spoke at the Monday protest, where Hawk accused the city of using vaccination requirements to run cover for its “racist ways” and “discrimination.”

Newsome spoke with the Washington Examiner about the difficulties vaccine-hesitant blacks are facing in the era of medical passports.

“We are not anti-vaxxers. Some of us are vaccinated,” Newsome said of his group. “It’s an individual’s choice. No one should be forced to put something in their body.”

OK, really, the requirements are not racist, but, they are disrespectful. How could they be racist when they apply to everyone? Well, unless you’re an Elite and attending the Met Gala with no mask on. Hawk is correct that it is an individual’s choice. But, this does go to show that hardcore groups like BLM will deem everything raaaaacist. That said, is Hawk and BLM NY calling the Democrats who run the city and all the white Democrats who are enthused about all the requirements racists?

Newsome, a Baptist, said that what infuriates him the most is the lack of accommodations for an individual’s spiritual objections to the vaccine.

“How dare they remove religious exemptions? It’s the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen,” Newsome said. “Now the government has decided your God doesn’t matter? I love God.”

It’s an interesting quandry for the Democrat powers that be: BLM is saying the same thing as so many Trump voters (and quite a few Biden voters), but, now they’re calling this racism and disrespect. The Democrat powers that be will probably just ignore BLM, as will most of the media.

‘Would you like Pfizer with that?’ New Zealanders could get Covid jab with fast-food fix

New Zealanders looking to get a fast-food fix could soon be asked if they would like a vaccine with their meal. The country is aiming to vaccinate at least 90% of its population and the government is now in talks with fast-food giant KFC to help reach that goal.(big snip)

So far, 72% of the eligible population in New Zealand has been vaccinated with one dose. Just over 38% of the eligible population has been fully vaccinated.

Will this really make a difference? How many will really say “well, OK”? Also, for all the talk about New Zealand being a model in crushing COVID with their extreme lockdowns, Kiwis sure don’t seem all that interested in getting vaccinated. Will that 72% get the second shot?

    Donald Trump would being sending the military to build hospitals in Idaho if it is this dire. He sent Hospital ships to NY and LA….BLUE STATES. He built military hospitals in NY and California which were never really used.

    If joe biden really gave a shit about Americans that did not vote for Democrats he would have already built 3 of these hospitals in the 3 big cities of Idaho.

    But no. Fuk the right. Fuk conservatives. Fuk Idaho.

    POKE EM IN THE EYE. GOAD THEM INTO INSURRECTION so he can declare martial law.

    BLM says vaccines are racist. Again this falls in line with blacks who do not trust the government.

    OMG THE LEFT WANTS BLACKS TO HAVE AN ID…..VACCINE PASSPORT to do things. This is inconvenient for them and is racist.

    See the Left does not care about Black People. Hell they don’t care about any people. They are just trying to turn the USA into a one party authoritarian nation.

    BLACK PEOPLE. STOP VOTING FOR THESE DEMOCRATIC IDIOTS. THEY HATE YOU. THEY PRETEND TO CARE BUT THEY DO NOT. The Right wants you to have a job, a future, hope. The left wants you to STFU and get back on the plantation.

    How many more slaps in the face do you need before you understand that Communism aint your friend and this is but a tiny taste of what an Unbridled left has in store for all of us.
