Marjorie Taylor-Greene dubs COVID-19 vaccine passports ‘Mark of the Beast’
By: BPR Newswire
An interesting point of view. I don’t oppose the vaccines but I do oppose making it mandatory or using some sort of passport or privileges based on having to get it. This issue is not the real mark of the beast but use of said types of language regarding it is legitimate to describe the intolerant and illegitimate attempts at coercion.
Freshman US lawmaker Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene (R-Georgia) dubbed the idea of a COVID-19 vaccine passport for those who have been inoculated against the novel coronavirus as US President Joe Biden’s “Mark of the Beast.”
In a video on social media by the NGO Right Wing Watch, Taylor-Greene went further than the biblical allegory for the devil, and criticized the vaccine for being controlling and “fascism, or communism – whatever you want to call it.” She further added that any company requiring one was engaging in what she dubbed “corporate communism.”
The idea of a COVID-19 passport first made waves after being utilized in Israel. Known locally as a “green passport,” the system has equipped people who have been immunized against COVID-19 with a special pass that allows them to participate in activities, such as going to gyms and restaurants and traveling.The idea behind it is that using this system can allow the country to safely reopen after lockdowns.
