DC Announces New Vaccine Passport

The Washington, D.C. Department of Health announced that “beginning January 15, any person wanting to enter any indoor space—including government buildings, restaurants, bars, theaters, gyms, and hotels—in the Capital must show a photo ID and proof of having been vaccinated for covid. Mayor Muriel Bowser said “the convergence of major public health menaces—the emergence of the Omicron variant of covid and the arrival of two major disease vectors—the Annual March for Life on January 21 and the Defeat the Mandates March  on January 23—are the reason for this new decree.”

“While we can’t legally bar the hundreds of thousands of unvaccinated anti-government subversives from exercising their constitutionally protected right to publicly assemble and air their grievances we can make conditions difficult and possibly intolerable by interdicting their attempts to find food or shelter within the DC area. If we also have the good fortune to see inclement weather the invasion of these undesirables may be considerably diminished in size.”

Republican candidate for governor of Texas Wayne Allyn Root called Bowser’s move “a betrayal of the freedoms my father almost died defending in WWII. It was the Nazis who discriminated against, persecuted, and ultimately murdered its political dissenters and Jews—characterizing them as dirty, filthy, dangerous, diseased, criminal, disloyal, and selfish. It is shameful to see the mayor of the nation’s capital starting down this heinous road.”

In support of the Mayor’s objectives, the Busboys and Poets restaurant cancelled the Democrats for Life of America’s previously scheduled reservation for a meeting room in the restaurant. A spokeswoman for the restaurant explained that “while we generally welcome conversations from individuals expressing different viewpoints and pride ourselves on being a venue for respectful conversations between diverse groups, we are also a safe space. As such, we cannot knowingly accept events designed to interfere with a woman’s right to terminate the life of her unwanted child.”

In related news, Democrats continue to demand the elimination of photo IDs and signatures as requirements for casting ballots in elections. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) contends that “any attempt to force a person to disclose their identity before being given a ballot is a violation of privacy.” She differentiated between “requiring IDs for voting and requiring them for other important reasons like preventing those who haven’t taken the covid vaccine from being allowed to mingle with and infect the loyal Americans who have voluntarily complied with the government’s orders that they get vaccinated. An illegitimate vote is of little threat to the country. An unvaccinated individual is a threat to health and life.”
