Warped Dem Has Big Plans For Unvaccinated Americans
According to the former Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe, vaccinations should not be a personal choice. This week he pushed for mandating the COVID-19 vaccine and urged businesses to demand proof from their customers of vaccination.
In a tweet shared on Monday, McAuliffe said, “I’m calling on EVERY Virginia employer to require all eligible employees to be vaccinated.” This follows suit with the former governor’s requirement for his campaign staff to be vaccinated and his support for school districts to require teachers to be vaccinated before returning to school this fall.
McAuliffe, who is also a current candidate for governor vowed to 'make like difficult' for the unvaccinated.
BREAKING: Following the full FDA approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine this morning, I’m calling on EVERY Virginia employer to require all eligible employees to be vaccinated. We need every eligible Virginian to get vaccinated to beat this virus. Together, we'll get it done.

“We have 93 million Americans today that are not vaccinated. And we need to do everything that we possibly can. I tell my private businesses all the time ‘I hope you mandate vaccines for people coming in.' ‘Til we make it hard for people to get on planes or go to movie theaters, people just aren’t going to do it. We’re not going door-to-door, but you make life difficult.”
"We can’t force them. We’re not going door to door, but you make life difficult," he continued. "If you’re going to come to the HIMSS conference, you got to be vaccinated."
The former governor is campaigning against Glenn Youngkin, a Republican who is backed by President Donald Trump. This would be McAuliffe's second, nonconsecutive term as governor.
Youngkin said that McAuliffe's announcement was an attempt to "bully" Virginians and businesses into compliance. Still, Youngkin has said he supports the COVID-19 vaccine and encourages residents to get inoculated, adding, "I have made the choice to get vaccinated and encourage everyone to join me in doing that, but ultimately, it is a personal decision to do so."
"Virginia is already struggling to recover from the pandemic due to failed Democratic leadership, and now Terry McAuliffe wants to 'make life difficult' for Virginians and businesses by issuing a government mandate that attempts to bully them into complying with what McAuliffe and the government thinks is best. And that will clearly evolve into closing down businesses and locking down Virginia again," Youngkin said in a statement to the Washington Examiner.

McAuliffe's declaration came after the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval of the Pfizer vaccine for eligible individuals age 16 and older. The FDA is currently working to also approve the other vaccines and for other age ranges.
