Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Monday vowed to take action against the broad push for vaccine passports, allowing individuals to show proof of vaccination to participate in basic activities or attend specific events, calling it a "completely unacceptable" idea.
"We're not supportive of that. I think it's something that people have certain freedoms and individual liberties to make decisions for themselves," the governor said at Monday's press conference, explaining it is "completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society."
DeSantis said he will ultimately take action via "an executive function, emergency function" but called on the state legislature to respond accordingly and address the issue.
"You want the fox to guard the henhouse? I mean give me a break," the Florida Republican continued.
"I understand, kind of, how some folks can embrace the idea, and I'm not saying it's all necessarily done for bad purposes, but I think ultimately it would create problems in the state," he added.
DeSantis reiterated the state is committed to its goal of providing the vaccine to everyone who wants one but emphasized there is no mandate or expectation.
"And that was something that, while it was advised to take, particularly if you're vulnerable, we were not going to force you to do it," he promised.
DeSantis highlighted his opposition to vaccine passports, which New York rolled out in some capacity, earlier this month, calling it a "terrible" and "unacceptable" proposition.
"The vaccine passport is a terrible idea. We are definitely not going to require anything from the state's perspective. That is totally off the table," DeSantis said during a roundtable discussion earlier this month. "If I have businesses that want to do that in Florida, I think that that's more than just a private decision."
"Look, if you want to go to a movie theater or concert, all this stuff, go. If you don't, don't," he continued.
"But to require somebody to show some type of proof of vaccination, I think, is completely unacceptable, and it's not something that we're going to support here in any way in Florida," DeSantis added.
A vaccine passport would be clearly illegal. The problem is, the illegality of most things have seldom stopped the demonrats from moving ahead with something illegal.
You mean like open borders? Or rigging elections? Or forming coordinated trusts to eliminate competition and censor the President? Or "suiciding" people who get in the way?
Okay, so if everyone needs a vaccine passport to travel, attend events, etc., then everyone needs to show their ID while voting.
You're being logical.
Enemy of the state.
Not only am I not doing vaccine passports, I'm not doing the shots. I'm not calling it a "vaccine" because it's not, legally or technically. It is, however, an experimental biological agent, which I'm not testing in my body.
I refuse to comply, I refuse to do business with any business that would require this, I refuse to vote for any politician that would support this.
I for one will not comply with Vaccine passports. All Americans that still love their freedom should do the same.
If the government keeps acting like it is the reincarnation of the Third Reich, then it deserves what ever the American people decide to do to it.
