GOP Governor Joins Dem Govs To Develop China Style Vax Passport
Massachusetts Republican Governor Charlie Baker announced that his is working with a “coalition of states” to create a Chinese style QR Code vaccine passport system. The “republican” governor even bragged by showing his personal code.
“This is my proof that I’ve been vaccinated. It’s easy to access, it’s a universal standard and we’ve been working with a bunch of other states,” Baker said, adding the passport could launch “soon.”Baker bragged the code “can be used for all sorts of things where people may choose to require a vaccine.”
What Baker didn’t talk about was how state governments my use the passport to impose and control the population.
In April of 2021, Baker said the state has no plans on launching a mandated vaccine passport system and claimed he just wanted people to get vaccinated.“I want to vaccinate people,” Baker said at the time. “Let’s get people vaccinated.”
“I certainly think it’s going to be an important thing to have here,” Baker told GBH.
Boston’s previous mayor quickly declared that she would never impose a vaccine passport in the city however, incoming Mayor Michelle Wu is all for it.
“We’re following the data very closely, and thinking about every tool that the city of Boston has,” Wu said. “I still very much think that we should be taking all possible action to protect our community members, to protect customers.”
As politicians are planning on imposing mandatory passport systems the first person to test positive for the omicron variant was fully vaccinated.
In a press conference, Dr. Fauci reported that a person in California whom just returned from South Africa tested positive for the omicron variant and was “fully vaccinated.” The individual is at home and is only experiencing mild symptoms.
