Do some Democrats believe unvaccinated Americans are terrorists? A former Obama administration official said she believes those who are unvaccinated should be added to a federal no-fly list earlier this week.
“The White House has rejected a nationwide vaccine mandate—a sweeping suggestion that the Biden administration could not easily enact if it wanted to—but a no-fly list for unvaccinated adults is an obvious step that the federal government should take,” former Assistant Secretary for Homeland Security Juliette Kayyem wrote in an op-ed for The Atlantic.
According to Fox News, the original title of the piece was “Unvaccinated people belong on the no-fly list” only to be updated later to “Unvaccinated people need to bear the burden.”
She wrote that passengers in airports are divided into categories based on certain protocols at security. She said the idea of TSA PreCheck allowing some to go through security without taking off their shows and a no-fly list keeping certain people off planes entirely is utilized because “not everyone poses an equal threat.”
She suggests the same principle would be used to justify limiting the spread of COVID by preventing unvaccinated Americans from flying.
