Right now as this story goes to publication, there is a series of crises developing in major urban centers all around the country thanks to COVID vaccine mandates — mandates that were engineered specifically to cause as much disruption as possible.
Over the weekend, the FDNY was forced to close more than two dozen firehouses — 26 to be exact — because hundreds of firefighters who refuse to get the vaccine called in sick rather than be placed on unpaid leave, as the New York Post reported:
The shutdown came amid a pitched battle between City Hall, which on Monday will start enforcing a mandate that all city workers have at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and jab-resisting firefighters, many reportedly saying they were already sick with the coronavirus and therefore have “natural immunity.”
“If someone dies due to a slower emergency response, it’s on Bill de Blasio and his overreaching mandates. I hope this fool fixes it ASAP!” U.S. Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), tweeted after noting that five stations in her district were shut down.
