U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, a practicing physician, is urging Americans to throw away their face masks and burn vaccine passports.
“The left has gone completely COVID crazy,” the Kentucky Republican says in a new fundraising pitch.
“They want government-enforced shutdowns, mask mandates, school closures, forced vaccines, and now they’re talking about a COVID vaccine passport. It’s absolutely unconstitutional – not to mention, it’s absurd.”
The ophthalmologist wrote:
Throughout the COVID crisis, these radicals have embraced theatrics, abandoned science, and the longer it goes on, the more they double down.
The newest power grab comes in the form of an alleged “Vaccine Passport” which would determine whether or not you’re “ALLOWED” to engage in your everyday life.
Want to go to the store? Show your vaccine card.
Want to go to a restaurant or concert? Did you tell the government what vaccines you’ve had?
Want to travel? VACCINE PAPERS PLEASE.
This is the slippery slope I warned about and it’s exactly what I’m fighting to defeat in Washington. …
… this passport idea from these hypocrites in Washington is just completely unacceptable.
Let’s not forget: these are the same people who are boycotting states like Georgia for implementing common-sense policies like voter ID.
Let me tell you something … if you think voter ID is racist, but the vaccine passport is just fine, you need some serious help thinking through public policy.
I will never be in favor of this COVID hysteria and I will never support a COVID passport.
It’s time to say enough is enough.
I urge everyone to get the vaccine if you need or want it. And then I urge everyone in America to throw away their masks, demand their schools be open, and burn your vaccine passport if they try to give it to you.
Last month, as WND reported, Paul blasted presidential COVID adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci, asking him what scientific studies he could cite that indicated people who have had the infection or a vaccine will spread the coronavirus.
“If we’re not spreading the infection, isn’t it just theater? You’ve had the vaccine and you wearing two masks, isn’t that just theater?” the senator asked.
“No. Here we go again with the theater. Let’s get down to the facts,” Fauci responded.
Paul also portrayed Fauci as a wannabe philosopher who spins “noble lies.”
He told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham: “You have to remember that his lies are noble lies, Laura. He’s not telling you this because he’s a mean man.”
“He’s telling you this because he feels sorry for you because you don’t understand, and Americans aren’t smart enough to make an informed decision. So, he fashions himself some sort of Greek philosopher. He tells you these noble lies.”
