Following the announcement of mandatory vaccinations given to the military by Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, dozen of them voiced their concerns and complaints to Rep. Thomas Massie, (R-Ky).
Massie received the communications at a roundtable before which the participants remained anonymous to avoid reprisal for their opinions, but their authenticity was verified by the representative’s office, according to The Blaze of Aug. 29.
For his part, one soldier, a six-year veteran of the Air National Guard as a front-line health worker, said, “The science is ignored in favor of a vax everyone at all costs position.”
He added, “Superiors are aware of the fact that soldiers with prior exposure to COVID have a better immunity response than could be achieved with a vaccine, yet it simply does not matter.”
Another who is pursuing an exemption exposes daily harassment from commanders urging him to abandon his application, and said, “The pressure from commanders to get people vaxxed is intense.”
Likewise, a Christian veteran who was denied a religious exemption said “without any reason given,” he insisted, “I am going to fight this in Federal Court if I need to,” according to The Blaze.
It should be recalled that Massie in June introduced HR 3860, a bill to prohibit any mandatory requirement for a member of the Armed Forces to receive the COVID-19 or CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine.
“This bill prohibits the use of federal funds to require a member of the Armed Forces to receive a COVID-19 vaccination,” proposes the bill that already has 31 cosponsors.
“The bill also prohibits adverse action (e.g., punishment) being taken against a member of the Armed Forces because the member refuses to receive a COVID-19 vaccination,” the bill proposes.
Several of the whistleblowers agreed that there could be a national security crisis and extreme danger to the nation should numerous experienced service members be expelled en masse from the military by the mandate.
More than 800,000 service members would still remain unvaccinated, according to Pentagon data.
Protests against mandatory vaccinations are not unique to military members, in fact, they occur around the world as a common pattern in which hundreds of thousands of people take to the streets to make their voices heard, and assert their right to choose.
Usually these calls are made through WhatsApp groups or social networks and do not have a political purpose, involving residents of large world capitals or small towns.
The rejection demonstrations are also motivated because employees who resist vaccination, either because of health issues, religion or simply because they are afraid or doubt its effectiveness, could lose their jobs.
Government agencies are increasingly pressuring the population to be inoculated, but they do not warn that the vaccines were approved on an emergency basis, that they are experimental and that people could suffer severe adverse effects, or even die from their application.
