The latest Democrat hypocrisy will force NYC residents to shown their COVID-19 vaccination ID – dubbed ‘Key to NYC Pass’ – in order to eat at restaurants, go to the gym, or enter indoor entertainment venues of any kind, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on Tuesday.
According to Liberal Logic Republicans Voter ID is Racist, But Democrats COVID Vaccine ID Isn’t?
While much of the outrage on Tuesday focused on the news of Cuomo’s alleged sexual improprieties with female staff – announced by state Attorney General Letitia James, but without a criminal indictment – more than a few critics have pointed out that the mayor and the governor are backing a mandate more burdensome than requiring an ID to vote – which their fellow Democrats have denounced as racist.
So it's racist to mandate voter ID but not to mandate vaccine ID cards?
Sound hypocritical to me.

Independent journalist Michael Tracey pointed to the vaccination statistics – showing that only 38% of African Americans in New York City have been immunized against the coronavirus – to state the obvious: the policy would have a racially disparate impact.
Looking at these figures, it seems impossible to dispute that NYC's upcoming "vaccine mandate" policy will have a racially disparate impact. Is that still the primary standard by which a policy must be judged, or not? https://t.co/4kl4JjunBg

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki Word Salad response to Democrats Racist Hypocrisy
Asked about it on Tuesday afternoon, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the objective of the Biden administration was to “close that equity gap”
Psaki then added that cities and local communities “should be able to take steps to incentivize more people getting vaccinated,” implicitly endorsing de Blasio’s mandate.

I remind you this is the same Biden administration that declared Georgia’s election integrity law – which would require showing an ID to vote by mail – “Jim Crow on steroids” and had the Justice Department sue the state on grounds that it was racist.
While some wondered what “mental gymnastics” the Democrats would use to square the discrepancy, Psaki seemed to simply ignore it – and most of the White House press corps seemed likewise incurious. The question was being asked on social media, however.
The arguments against voter id usually start and end with the tried and true “it’s racist” spiel so how is the left justifying vaccine passports when the majority of people who haven’t got it yet are “bipoc”
Let’s see the mental gymnastics they try to justify this with

Bill "Papers Please" De Blasio is Pro-Segregation and wants to unilaterally discriminate against millions of law abiding New Yorkers.
No wonder why so many of us are moving to the free state of Florida!!! https://t.co/qEozg59ViP
