Joe Biden is coercing all of America to get the COVID vaccine.
And the crackdowns on those who refuse are coming.
Now California is enforcing Biden’s ridiculous mandate with a jaw-dropping move.
Despite a federal court ruling against him, Joe Biden is moving full speed ahead with his unconstitutional COVID vaccine mandate.
And now the COVID regime is going after the kids.
California is the first state that will be requiring vaccines for young children, and parents will not be able to seek medical exemptions to keep their kids from getting the jab.
The Federalist reports:
“After Gov. Gavin Newsom announced that kids would be required to get the COVID-19 vaccine to receive in-person learning, California is blocking many of them from getting medical exemptions from the shot . . . Since California offers no religious exemptions, parents who don’t want their child to get the shot are left with no other option but to homeschool or leave the blue state.”
That is the choice on the table for parents.
Jab your kid, homeschooling, or leave the state.
Concerned parents seem to be opting for the latter two options in large numbers.
The number of children enrolled in full-time homeschooling is up to an eye-popping 11%.
That means one out of every nine children is being homeschooled, which essentially represents a three-fold increase in under two years.
California is also experiencing net negative migration out of the state as people flee to redder and freer pastures.
The response from emperor Gavin Newsom has been to aggressively go after the doctors who have granted medical exemptions.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
“As some California parents scramble for ways around a new Covid-19 vaccine mandate for schools, the state is increasingly scrutinizing doctors issuing suspicious medical exemptions. Dr. M. Kelly Sutton is among them, accused by the Medical Board of California of improperly exempting several students from required school vaccines. She disputes the findings though acknowledges considering parent input when granting exemptions, not a recognized reason in the state.”
Dr. Sutton said in an interview:
“I think the parent knows best, and the parent is going to live with the outcome . . . I’m warning my patients to have a Plan B.”
In this case, Plan B means pulling children from schools or moving to states that haven’t gone fully authoritarian.
Progressives in California are killing the goose that laid the golden egg.
Residents’ reward for rising taxes are homelessness, bad infrastructure, bad public education, spikes in crime, and far-left zealots in every direction that want to inject your children.
That’s why people and businesses are opting out.
