Black Lives Matter NYC leader promises ‘uprising’ against city’s ‘racist’ COVID-19 vaccine passports

Published

on

One of the leaders of a Black Lives Matter group in New York City promised an “uprising” against the city’s COVID-19 vaccine passports, decrying the system as racist.

According to data provided by New York state, about 85% of black residents have not received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Data provided by New York City shows that 64 percent of black people between the ages of 18 and 44 are not fully vaccinated while 56 percent have received one shot.

Hawk Newsome, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, told the Washington Examiner that “I think, in a perfect world, [vaccine requirements] should be business by business. But it could be a slippery slope, so the mandate should be removed completely.”

He added, “It’s not gonna be white men in suits on Wall Street who are gonna get stopped. There’s such hypocrisy in this thing.”

Newsome said he believes that black Americans “have a natural distrust of the vaccine,” citing the Tuskegee Syphilis Study in the 20th century for a reason why.

“How dare they remove religious exemptions? It’s the most disrespectful thing I’ve ever seen,” Newsome said, adding that he believes that most vaccine mandates don’t allow religious exemption.

“Now the government has decided your God doesn’t matter? I love God.”

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, argued in a court filing this week that the state has no constitutional obligation to grant religious exemptions to COVID-19 vaccines for healthcare workers. Religious exemptions to the vaccines most commonly center on objections on how aborted fetal cells were used in the manufacturing and testing process. Medical exemptions usually include a doctor’s recommendation that a person not get the vaccine due to an underlying medical condition.

The Miami Standard has contacted Black Lives Matter of Greater New York for additional comment.

Another member of the group promised an “uprising” in New York City over the vaccine mandate.

“We’re putting this city on notice that your mandate will not be another racist social distance practice,” Chivona Newsome, a leader of the group, told fellow protesters during a demonstration in Manhattan in front of Carmine’s restaurant on Monday.

“Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat. That is a promise.”

“The vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism,” she added.

Black Lives Matter activists had accused Carmine’s of racially profiling three black women from Texas, who were arrested last week after a hostess allegedly demanded vaccination proof.

A lawyer for Carmine’s denied their allegations.

“Any claim that they were racially profiled is a complete fabrication, disingenuous, and outright irresponsible,” Carolyn Richmond, the attorney for the restaurant, told the New York Daily News.

WEF calls for replacement of paper passports with COVID-19 vaccine passports, Davos pushes vaxx passports to enforce global carbon taxes

Published

on

The World Economic Forum (WEF) is pushing the replacement of paper passports with worldwide, digital passports.

The globalist forum has also proposed a digital “vaccine passport,” which presumably would be included in the paper passport’s replacement.

“The standard template for passports was created more than a century ago—and many argue that it’s due for a major rethink,” reads a WEF article published last month. “Economists and open-border advocates point out that tethering one’s prospects to a paper-based travel document, one originally meant to expedite queues at European train stations, has proven to be inefficient, costly, and ultimately inequitable.” 

Interestingly, the article admits the eradication of paper passports works against national sovereignty because, as the above quote points out, it’s a proposal spearheaded by open-border advocates who want “seamless cross-border movement” by economic migrants who will fulfill millions of vacant jobs by 2030, presumably for lower pay.

Another article by the WEF promotes the adoption of a digital “vaccine passport” for international travel that would seemingly be a part of a general digital passport which replaces a paper one.

“The expectation is that with a vaccine, some aspects of life will return to normal – especially when it comes to travel – which has been particularly hard-hit. This is where a ‘vaccine passport’ or ‘e-vaccination certification of compliance for border crossing regulations’ might become a required travel document, to enable seamless border-crossing and the harmonization of varying national laws,” according to the WEF article, with emphases added.

It’s noteworthy that both proposals share the same agenda, emphasized above, indicating that they are meant to be adopted in tandem.

A digital passport would also be less private in comparison to a paper one given that it could tie into medical and tax records while conceivably tracking a person’s movements.

It could also conceivably be used to enforce carbon taxes on individual travelers, thereby restricting private travel by making it prohibitively expensive except for, say, economic migrants who are filling jobs for less pay to the advantage of multi-national corporations which will then be less burdened by carbon taxes.

Davos Group pushes COVID-19 vaccine passports to enforce global carbon taxes

The Davos Group is pushing a United Nations (UN) plan to use worldwide “vaccine passports” to enforce global carbon taxes, which would make the cost of travel even more expensive.

The World Economic Forum, which hosts the Davos Group meetings, claims that a worldwide vaccine passport would lead to a “harmonization of varying national laws,” a necessary step to enforcing a global carbon tax.

We’ve already seen the Biden administration working with other countries to collude on an agreed-upon minimum 15% corporate tax rate across the world, so the “harmonization” is not unheard of when it comes to a global tax.

It’s quite apparent that a vaccine passport required to travel across counties would provide the necessary tech infrastructure to pass the costs of carbon taxes onto individual travelers, which is likely the intended goal.

The proposal could lead to international – and even domestic – travel becoming prohibitively expensive for most people.

Miami private school to require students getting COVID-19 vaccine to stay home for 30 days after each dose due to ‘shedding onto others’

Published

MIAMI, Fla. — A Miami school that made headlines for saying it would penalize teachers who got the COVID-19 vaccine is now requiring students who get vaccinated to remain home for 30 days after each dose.

Parents of students at the Centner Academy recently received a letter from its Chief Operating Officer that read in part, “…if you are considering the vaccine for your Centner Academy student(s), we ask that you hold off until the Summer when there will be time for the potential transmission or shedding onto others to decrease.”

The letter also spelled out a quarantine rule for parents who still choose to vaccinate their children.
