Numerous figures in the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Biden Administration are allegedly pressuring phone companies to illegally spy on the text messages and phone calls of American citizens who have concerns about getting a coronavirus vaccine, as reported by the New York Post.
First reported by Politico, the shocking allegations claim that Biden Administration officials are frustrated by their failure to reach the self-imposed goal of vaccinating 70 percent of American adults by July 4th. To this end, Democratic officials are “planning to engage fact-checkers more aggressively and work with SMS (Short Message Service) carriers to dispel misinformation about vaccines.”
White House spokesperson Kevin Munoz told Politico that the Biden Administration is trying to keep “politics out of the effort to get every American vaccinated,” which will allegedly “help our economy further recover.” Munoz, in a direct challenge to the First Amendment right to freedom of expression, then said that “when we see deliberate efforts to spread misinformation, we view that as an impediment to the country’s public health and will not shy away from calling that out.”
The push for increased surveillance comes after widespread backlash against Joe Biden’s declaration that his government will “go community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes, door-to-door – literally knocking on doors – to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus.” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki had previously made the same suggestion in a press conference before Biden himself reaffirmed support for the idea.
The proposal for a “door-to-door” vaccination task force was criticized by South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster (R-S.C.), who said that such an effort to force vaccinations onto people would “further deteriorate the public’s trust and could lead to potentially disastrous public safety consequences.” Similarly, Congressman Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) pointed out that such “mechanisms” could later be used to “go door to door and take your guns…and take your Bibles.”
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that approximately 67.7 percent of all American adults have received at least one dose of any of the coronavirus vaccines in circulation, which accounts for just under 175 million people. Conversely, only about 48 percent of Americans (roughly 159 million) have been “fully” vaccinated with multiple doses.
