The same Democrats who denounced Republican voter ID laws racist are now embracing NYC’s Covid vaccination pass which discriminates against the black community. 
 

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.

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.

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”

Wait. What?

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.
