America’s takeover by authoritarians who are hellbent on implementing their Orwellian vision on a free country has taken yet another ominous step with New York City’s introduction of vaccine passports in order to fully participate in society.
On Tuesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vaccine mandate went into effect with New Yorkers now being required to present proof that they have been vaccinated if they are to be allowed entry into the city’s restaurants, physical fitness facilities, and entertainment venues, a requirement with dark historical overtones that was unthinkable only a few short months ago.
When he proudly announced the “Key to NYC” and its unprecedented restrictive measures earlier this month, Hizzoner proclaimed: “This is a miraculous place, literally full of wonders,” he said. “If you’re vaccinated, all that’s gonna open up to you. If you have the key, you can open the door. If you’re unvaccinated, unfortunately, you will not be able to participate in many things.”
Starting today, I’ll no longer be visiting NYC. A place I love and visit often. I suspect there are many like me. https://t.co/r1NF3SLIeD

The NYC program along with its strict “no shots, no service” policy was the first of its type in the nation further defining what life will be like in states under Democrat control and drawing a contrast between red states like Florida that have passed laws banning vaccine passports.
Mayor de Blasio made it official when he signed off on an executive order on the “Key To NYC” which he called the “ultimate encouragement to get people vaccinated” at a Monday press conference. “We want people to enjoy the fullness of the city, but you’ve gotta be vaccinated to do it,” he said.

De Blasio also crowed that other cities under Democrat control, including San Francisco and New Orleans, have followed with their own vaccine passports as the Biden administration, which is constrained by the questionable legality of a federal vaccine mandate, is leaning heavily on mayors and corporations to do the dirty work for them with such coercive measure.
The Big Apple will allow for a grace period until next month allowing businesses to adjust before those found in violation are fined.
What has largely gone unmentioned by the media is the fact that the highest percentage of those who have yet to consent to be jabbed in New York City are people of color, specifically black people and their exclusion from society under de Blasio’s vax pass is clearly discriminatory, a curious detail for an administration that has been obsessed with race.
In a story published last week, The New York Times admitted that only 28 percent of black New Yorkers have been vaccinated, citing distrust in the system. The paper quotes a 44-year-old Black Lives Matter leader who remains reluctant to get the shot, “Since when does America give anything good to Black people first?” Another who is identified as a 41-year-old Queens construction site safety manager said, “I’m supposed to worry about getting sick when I go outside, versus getting killed by a cop or something like that?”
Some business owners are understandably not down with de Blasio’s “Key To NYC” which will usher in a new Jim Crow style system and are speaking out against excluding their black customers.

Democrats have weaponized a national health crisis by exploiting COVID to implement policies that were previously unthinkable and with the current state of mass hysteria over the delta variant that is being fanned by the media, look for vaccine passports to spread like wildfire.
