Thousands of people flooded the streets of Turin, a city located in northern Italy, Thursday evening to protest harsh government restrictions for unvaccinated citizens, dubbed the “green pass.” The Italian prime minister, Mario Draghi, told a press conference Thursday that the country will need to act and suppress another wave of COVID-19 infections at a time the Delta variant is spreading throughout Europe.
This totalitarian impulse isn’t limited to Europe either:
Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News, Australian MP Frank Pangallo says that what unvaccinated people are allowed to do in the community “will need to be controlled and restricted” by authorities.
I am not an expert at anything, but I am going to make a prediction anyway. A vaccine passport will be introduced in a blue state, not New York or Michigan because their governors have already been under a lot of scrutiny for other issues, and I am sure the Dems want to protect the two of them from any further bad press. It’ll be started in a state run by a governor that has, so far, gone under the radar. It might even be a moderate governor.
Anyway, I am heartened at the protests in Europe, as not everyone is taking this crap lying down, which is good. I expect there to be quite a bit of resistance here in the US once a vaccine passport is introduced here.
