Fighting Back Against Covidstan's Discrimination
South Carolina is showing Texas' limp-wristed Republicans how to do it
“My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. 3 If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?”
At the core of the Branch Covidian religion is its inherent discrimination: masked vs unmasked, vaxxed vs unvaxxed, elitist vs commoner, etc. It is evil, oppressive, vile, Un-American and Un-Texan. Furthermore, never in human history have oppressors voluntarily given up on their oppression without a power encounter of some sort. Shame, political pressure, loss of money or prestige, physical force, war… it will take inflicting some sort of pain on the oppressor to stop with their oppressing. That’s what the Texas Independence from Covidstan agenda is all about.
Today, we have an opportunity to deliver some accountability to organizations that discriminate against people who choose not to take the Covid injections in Texas. Legislators in South Caroline recently filed HB 4848, “…to establish criminal liability in certain circumstances for inquiring about another person’s Covid-19 vaccination status”.
“Notwithstanding another provision of law to the contrary, any employee, officer, agent, or other representative of a public, nonprofit, or private entity who inquires about the COVID-19 vaccination status of any student, employee, member, or anyone else seeking admission on the entity's premises is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than fourteen thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than one year, or both." (emphasis added)
Texas did pass a similar bill during the 87th Regular session: SB 968, which included a provision against “vaccine passports” required by business or government agencies in the state of Texas. At first, this sounds good, until you see the penalty defined in statute:
“each appropriate state agency shall ensure that businesses in this state comply with Subsection (c) and may require compliance with that subsection as a condition for a license, permit, or other state authorization necessary for conducting business in this state.”
Well isn’t that a typical, Texas teletubbie Republican response: You discriminate against Texans, violate their bodily autonomy and informed consent, the penalty is…. we may prevent you from doing business with the state, you know, on the off chance a business happens to do business with the state. As with so many other things with the Texas GOP, its far more optics than action.
What I like about South Carolina’s HB 4848 is that the penalties are unambiguous and universal: You discriminate based on Covid injection status, you are subject to fines and jail time.
