More Vaccine Insanity
The United Nations building in New York City is – under the UN Charter – international territory. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio not only does not respect international law, he insults diplomats of other nations. He won’t let diplomats in the building unless they get American approved vaccines and insults them when they object to this.
Check this out.
New York City’s (legally questionable) demand that all representatives and diplomats who attend next week’s UN General Assembly meeting show proof of vaccination is threatening to derail the annual summit of world leaders as Russia and China protest the fact that their locally developed vaccines won’t be accepted.
Keep in mind, the biggest issue here isn’t that diplomats aren’t vaccinated. It’s that they’re vaccinated with jabs that haven’t been approved in the US.
Sputnik V, a vaccine backed by Moscow and widely administered in Russia, does not have approval in the United States …
To try and make everybody happy, NY officials have promised to dole out free doses of the single-dose J&J jab by the UN Headquarters in Midtown. But it’s not approved in all member states, either (though it has been approved by the WHO, even as questions about dangerous side effects linger).
To Mayor de Blasio, this amounts to a sufficient olive branch. “If their vaccine isn’t good enough, then they should go and use one of the other vaccines.”
And de Blasio topped it off by adding one final insult to injury:
In the face of Russia’s complaints, Mayor de Blasio doubled down: “If the Russian ambassador is against it, I’m for it.”
I am patriotic to the USA – but never would I suggest that and be so arrogant that americans are superior. I hate this mindset. I am not going to say americans are losers either but by far – we have the most corrupt government in the world. ( 30 years ago , id never have thought this ) The US continues to fall in status. But doesnt mean you dont support your country.
