WIth every day that goes by, it seems that there is an increasing amount of insanity regarding COVID-19, and it seems to only be getting worse. There is a new proposal from a government official that is definitely a head-scratcher.
This is a proposal that would require all vaccinated people to wear their vaccination cards like IDs when they go outside so that way it would be easy to determine who is vaccinated and who is not. This is starting to sound liike Nazi Germany where they were starting to make the Jews wear that star, but I digress.
Interior Undersecretary for Barangay (Neighborhood) Affairs Martin Dino (of the Philippines) made this suggestion at a Wednesday briefing after presenting his own vaccination card that he was wearing on a lanyard and an ID case.
“This will hopefully be a sacrifice from all vaccinated Filipinos: If you are already vaccinated, once you go out your home, wear your vaccination card,” he said in mixed Filipino and English.
“How will you know someone is not vaccinated if they are not wearing their vaccination card? When you leave the house you won’t be bothered by the police or the neighborhood watchmen anymore, they won’t ask you where your vaccination card is if you’re wearing it on your chest.”
Of course, this resulted in mixed reactions from Philippine residents. There were a few social media users that thought the whole thing was an absurd concept and a total violation of their constitutional rights. Moreover, there were some who thought it was nothing more than a terrible way of creating division. Here are some of the comments:
“Yet another way to create division within the Filipino people. Well done. Lemme preemptively hit you lot. People will forge, people will discriminate against those who are unvaccinated.”
“Why do they have to wear the vaccination card, what for? I can sense that you are hinting to employ coercion for others to vaccinate.”
“I refuse to unnecessarily display personal information everywhere I go. What does this DILG exec propose to do with those who go out without displaying it? Looks like we’re on our way to becoming a police state using the pandemic as an excuse.”
“It really is a big problem when the whole system is run by old and stupid brain-dead folks. Wake up people, we deserve better than this comedy-themed public service”
“Violation of our Constitutional rights.”
“Useless proposal. Ohhh wait let me CORRECT YOUR CAPTION/HEADLINE (0) DILG EXEC PROPOSES REQUIRING EXPERIMENTAL VACCINE CARDS TO BE WORN LIKE ID’S OUTDOORS. Experimental Vaccines WILL NOT SAVE THE PLANET. This has been proven yet being censored by the government, the social media and the big media network giants. #NoToMandatoryVaccines #NoToExperimentalJabs”
Sharon Nachman is the chief of the division of pediatric infectious diseases at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, and she is encouraging all Americans to keep their plastic card in a plastic sleeve or some other type of holder instead of having it laminated.
Nachman also noted that laminating the card will make it impossible for people to add any new information in the future, such as additional doses. Thus, U.S. health officials have already announced their plan to offer a COVID-19 booster shot to all Americans starting in late September.
Filipinos losing their rights. Let’s hope to high heaven that these ideas stay over there and don’t come to the U.S. of A.
