Occupy Democrats, the crowd that camped out in Zuccotti Park in 2011 and 2012 to protest the kind of evil capitalists that would evict someone from their home, is now calling for landlords to evict tenants who refuse to get the coronavirus vaccine. The group’s official Twitter account praised a landlord in Florida who announced they are refusing to admit applicants to rent from them if they have not had the vaccine.
The large Florida landlord said that not only will new tenants be required to get their coronavirus shot before leasing, but existing tenants will be required to get the vaccine, or they will be evicted. There’s no possible way that can be legal. The landlord would have to violate HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) by requiring tenants to turn over private medical records verifying whether or not they got the vaccine.
But that’s Joe Biden’s America. The president’s intolerable and unconstitutional vaccine mandate has created an environment hostile to Americans who make the “wrong” choice regarding this private medical decision. That and referring to these patriotic, hard-working people, millions and millions of them, as “the unvaccinated” like they’re some guilty class of people. Oh yeah, and calling them the pandemic, as in “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
It’s like Biden is calling these people themselves his citizens. He presides over viruses. That’s the kind of language that right-wing authoritarian governments use against scapegoated classes during the runup to mass repressions and even genocides. Democrats ridiculously shouted for four years that Donald Trump was going to be this. But it turns out they were broadcasting their intentions for America had Hillary Clinton won in 2016.
Now it’s 2020, and they lost four years. Still, Democrats are hell-bent on regimenting American society into the most nationalistic, militaristic, command and control society they can muster out of the country of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and Franklin. They went in a year from “two weeks to flatten the curve” to “evict the unvaccinated from their homes!”
The Occupy Democrats’ modest proposal is incredibly stunning in light of the group’s work in recent months to maintain federal relief for Americans facing eviction in the middle of the catastrophic economic crisis the Bidenists, and Covid criers started last year. When Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) camped out in a sleeping bag on the Capitol building steps just weeks ago to protest the end of the federal eviction moratorium, Occupy tweeted out her photo with their support.
Now they want landlords to kick people out onto the street for making their own decision about their bodies. Keep your ear to the ground. Hear that? That’s a stampede of fascists out to make it possible for the government to get you to do anything you want by not allowing you to do business with others if you don’t stay in line. Coronavirus is the pretext for it, but they’ll use it for many more pretexts if Americans let them have it.
