Approximately 40,000 U.S. Army National Guard soldiers face discrimination over their medical decisions to not receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
A staggering 13% of the force are forgoing the mandate for them to get “vaccinated” and are facing termination. June 30 was the determined last chance date to receive the shot before military officials could oust soldiers from their service positions.
At least one politician, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), introduced legislation on behalf of the discriminated-against Guardsmen. The legislation introduced by Blackburn wants to ban federal money to try and force a National Guard soldier to get the coronavirus shot. It would also prohibit the Secretary of Defense from disciplining or firing Guard members who forwent the medical mandate.
“Our service members are the bedrock of America,” Blackburn told The Daily Caller. “Firing 40,000 Guardsmen for refusing the COVID vaccine would be both a complete disgrace and a threat to our national security.”
The letting go of tens of thousands of soldiers presents a tremendous national security threat and goes against the left’s reasoning of forcing injections on people in the name of “safety.” World powers are already looking down on the United States under the Biden administration’s weak leadership. With 40,000 soldiers on the brink of termination, the U.S.’s smokescreen of being a solid country continues to dissipate.

“I am honored to stand beside our National Guardsmen and women by introducing this legislation to protect them from President Biden’s forever pandemic,” the senator continued.
Several House Republicans have introduced various legislation that opposed COVID rulings, such as mask and vaccine mandates.
Another politician, Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS), a physician, blasted Joe Biden’s hypocrisy on Twitter.
“Thursday is the National Guard’s vaccine deadline. Biden is allowing illegal immigrants of unknown vax status to invade our country every day but is still willing to fire up to 40,000 American heroes,” he tweeted.

National Guard members in Tennessee have petitioned the state’s governor, Bill Lee, to sue the federal government over the mandate. A petition sent to Lee’s office shows Guard soldiers and their families pleading for help over the discrimination.
It read in part: “It is your duty before God and the citizens of the great state of Tennessee, sir, to help these men and women. Please stop them from being fired, sir!”
Thousands have asked for religious exemptions. Even more have refused to entertain the idea of being forced to have the injection altogether.
As tensions rise, whether or not the roughly 40,000 Guard members will be let go and if Blackburn’s legislation will go through is still in question.
