1,250 Clergy Members Warn Vaccine Passports Would Create “Medical Apartheid” in UK
PJ Watson, Summit News, Jul 23 2021

1,250 prominent clergy members in the UK have warned that the introduction of mandatory vaccine passports to attend church would create “medical apartheid” and would be “divisive, discriminatory, and destructive.” As we highlighted yesterday, the ‘mission creep’ of vaccine passports is already expanding, with vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi indicating that the program could be extended further to sporting and business events, music venues and festivals. When asked by LBC radio host Nick Ferrari whether the scheme could be further expanded to ban the unvaccinated from attending church, business minister Paul Scully responded:

We’re not ruling anything out.

Now 1,250 clergy members from various Christian denominations have signed an open letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson warning that the “introduction of vaccine passports would constitute an unethical form of coercion and violation of the principle of informed consent.” Noting that many Christians don’t wish to take the vaccine due to “serious issues of conscience related to the ethics of vaccine manufacture or testing,” the letter also says the vaccine passports risk, “creating a two-tier society, a medical apartheid in which an underclass of people who decline vaccination are excluded from significant areas of public life.” The letter warns:

This scheme has the potential to bring about the end of liberal democracy as we know it and to create a surveillance state in which the government uses technology to control certain aspects of citizens’ lives. As such, this constitutes one of the most dangerous policy proposals ever to be made in the history of British politics.

With some nightclub owners refusing to enforce the policy if it becomes law, the backlash is growing against vaccine passports. Protesters in Greece, France and now Italy have all hit the streets to demonstrate against the draconian measure, with another large demonstration planned by anti-lockdown activists for this Saturday in London. It remains to be seen whether there will be enough opposition to vote down the law in Parliament, although as per usual, polls show that a majority of the British public actually supports the idea.

Fauci Says Rand Paul “Totally Distorted Reality” By Accusing Him Of Lying To Congress
Steve Watson, Summit News, Jul 22 2021

Anthony Fauci was once again provided a platform Thursday by MSNBC to deny any wrong doing on his behalf as regards funding gain of function research in Wuhan. Fauci accused Rand Paul of “slander” after the Senator again clashed with Fauci this week, accusing him of lying before Congress. As we reported Wednesday, Senator Paul has vowed to seek a criminal referral from the Dept of Justice. Fauci declared:

I don’t any take great pleasure, Ari, in clashing with the senator. I have a great deal of respect for the institution of the Senate of the United States. But he was completely out of line. He totally distorted reality. And he made some inflammatory and, I believe, slanderous remarks about lying under oath, which is completely nonsense. I mean, and some of the things he says are so distorted and out of tune with reality, I had to call him on that. I didn’t enjoy it, but I had to do that because he was completely out of line. Totally inappropriate.

Note that Fauci didn’t actually provide any details or evidence against what Senator Paul said, because he can’t. And the MSNBC host was just fine with that.

Rather bizarrely, over at CNN a nugget of truth did emerge as regards Fauci, when conservative commentator Mary Katharine Ham was allowed to slam the media for “fangirling” over Fauci. She continued:

Senator Paul understood the assignment here. He’s asking about a tough subject that admittedly none of us are experts on, but I would like to know a lot more about. And despite his protestations, tough questions for Dr. Anthony Fauci are not attacks on science itself.

Ham further slammed Fauci for repeatedly “shading” the truth, pointing to Fauci’s dismissal of the lab leak possibility, noting that is why he is not trusted by Americans.

Alabama Governor Declares ‘It’s Time To Blame The Unvaccinated For COVID’
Steve Watson, Summit News, Jul 23 2021

The governor of Alabama stated Thursday that it is “time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks” for rising cases of COVID in the state. Governor Kay Ivey made the comments during a press briefing, declaring:

Let’s be crystal clear about this issue. The new cases of Covid are because of unvaccinated folks. Almost 100% of the new hospitalizations are with unvaccinated folks. And the deaths are certainly occurring with the unvaccinated folks. These folks are choosing a horrible lifestyle of self-inflicted pain. We got to get folks to take the shot. The vaccine is the greatest weapon we have to fight COVID. There is no question about that the data proves it. I’ve taken the shot back in December, both shots. It’s just the thing to do. The unvaccinated is who we need to focus on. Folks are supposed to have common sense. But it’s time to start blaming the unvaccinated folks, not the regular folks. It’s the unvaccinated folks that are letting us down. I’ve done all I know how to do. I can encourage you to do something, but I can’t make you take care of yourself.

Ivey’s comments come amid wall to wall media coverage of doctors in Alabama declaring that young people are dying en mass from COVID while begging to be given the vaccine only to be told ‘it’s too late’ and that they should have gotten the shots sooner.

CNN: Segregate Unvaccinated, Make Them Pay For Tests Every Day
Steve Watson, Summit News, Jul 23 2021

CNN continued its wall to wall broadcasts calling for unvaccinated people to be punished, with analysts again calling for those who haven’t gotten the COVID shots to be segregated from society and forced to pay for tests every single day. First up was CNN’s resident medical health “expert” Dr Leana Wen who called for vaccine passports and forever masking. Wen said:

I think it depends on the circumstance, so if you’re going to the grocery store, and the grocery store doesn’t have the capacity to enforce some kind of proof of vaccination, then they have to say that indoor masking needs to apply, because we don’t know who’s vaccinated and who’s not. The same thing for schools. Schools, you can’t expect the teacher in every school to be asking ‘well you’re not wearing a mask so are you vaccinated or not?’ And so that’s the case, everyone should be wearing masks. But I can imagine there are already concert venues or workplaces that are saying ‘if you are not vaccinated, you can’t come, or you have to get a negative test.’ And that’s what’s needed in order to really incentivize vaccines at this point.

Wen previously suggested that life should be made as difficult as possible for those who are still opting not to take the shots, and that Americans should be banned from engaging in social events and forced to undergo PCR tests twice a week if they want to stay unvaccinated. She also previously advocated directly linking the amount of freedom Americans should be allowed to their vaccination status. Next up on CNN, which should probably be renamed VNN, was Former White House senior COVID-19 adviser Andy Slavitt who proclaimed that the Biden administration should become “very aggressive” and force unvaccinated workers and students to take daily tests and to cover the costs themselves. Slavitt declared:

We should be really seriously considering whether schools, workplaces, government agencies ought to be saying, ‘Hey, if you’re coming here, you need to be vaccinated. If you’re not, you need to show you have a negative test every single day.’ Look, if people say they don’t want to be vaccinated, which some people might say, I think it’s perfectly reasonable to say that’s fine. We want you to show up every morning an hour before work and get a negative test. Maybe even at your own expense. Until the point where people will say, you know what? It makes more sense to actually get vaccinated. If you give people that option, I think you’re going to see more and more people take the option to get vaccinated.

“Option.” Right. In other words, force people to take vaccines by crippling them financially and ostracising them from society. The latest VNN ravings come on the heels of a leaked internal email from CNN’s Washington bureau chief complaining that the “carrot” is no longer working in terms of convincing Americans to get vaccinated and that authorities need to start using the “stick.”
