In And Out Burger Closed In San Francisco For Refusing To Be COVID Police

More: They call themselves “anti-Fascists” yet want more authoritarian government

Now, I can understand being mask police during forced masking, at least in cases where there are penalties on companies that fail to enforce masking, as getting caught by the government mask Gestapo could cause a lot of issues for companies. Who wants to be fined? Who wants to be shut down? Many companies just went with the flow to avoid the problems. But, asking people to put on mask, or put them on properly, can be uncomfortable. And create fights. Asking people to prove their vaccination status is even more uncomfortable, and getting into people’s business. We don’t ask if they have had a flu shot, right? This is a giant step way too far, but, unsurprising in San Francisco

San Francisco Closes In-N-Out After Company Defies Vaccine Mandates

California fast food giant, In-N-Out Burger, earned itself a public flogging in the left-wing haven of San Francisco after the company refused to comply with the city’s vaccine mandate.

According to KRON4, the San Francisco Department of Public Health shut down the city’s In-N-Out Burger restaurant near Fisherman’s Wharf because “employees were not properly checking for customers’ vaccination documentation.”

The shutdown occurred on Thursday, October 14. The restaurant has since reopened but only for drive-thru dining. San Francisco issued a strict vaccine mandate this past August, dictating that “all restaurants, bars, clubs, gyms and large indoor events” must “obtain proof of vaccination from patrons and employees to protect against the coronavirus.”

Why would this even be necessary? Aren’t Democratic Party voters compliant? Don’t they now love the vaccine since Joe is president? Aren’t they all getting them?

In a statement, In-N-Out Chief Legal & Business Officer Arnie Wensinger said that the company “fiercely” disagrees with government mandates that force businesses to discriminate:

We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not, whether based on the documentation they carry, or any other reason.

“We fiercely disagree with any government dictate that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business,” he added.

In-N-Out had seen pressure from the city government for weeks, since a few whiny whiners had snitched, instead of just going on about their business. Someone in the article comments had a great point

You comply because you want it to end. Because you continue to comply….it will never end. Do not comply.

Exactly. Most complied with the first mask mandate. Heck, I was the mask police at work, first because I didn’t want Government coming in and causing problems (interestingly, government did nothing that I heard of around here), second, because some people just wanted to be a pain. They can wait outside. It annoyed me greatly that Planet Fitness wouldn’t tell people to wear their masks properly. I did not want them shut down. This time? I won’t wear it if they aren’t forcing it.

    And now there’s the AY.4.2 strain of the Delta variant, so there’ll be yet another call for lockdowns, mask mandates, vaccine mandates, etc, because the control freaks have to retain control.

    Just two more years to flatten the curve!

      AY4.2 doesn’t appear to be significantly more transmissible to Delta. So the same path forward, vaccination.
