You’d think a threat to our burgers would be enough for Americans to say enough is enough.
But you’d be wrong.
America 2021 is a mass surrender party.
Another In-N-Out restaurant in California was forced to close after refusing to enforce Covid-19 vaccination rules.
Health officials in Contra Costa county indefinitely shut the Pleasant Hill location of the popular burger chain on Tuesday after it ignored repeated warnings to verify that customers who wanted to dine indoors had vaccination cards or proof they had tested negative for the virus in the past 72 hours.
Officials also issued warnings and fines to In-N-Out restaurants in Pinole and San Ramon.
Public health authorities see vaccination enforcement requirements as vital tools in slowing Covid-19 at a time when 1,500 or more Americans are dying each day from the virus. However, In-N-Out, based in Irvine, in southern California, has consistently refused to heed the requirements in the Bay Area, which are some of the strictest in the state.
“We refuse to become the vaccination police for any government. It is unreasonable, invasive, and unsafe to force our restaurant associates to segregate customers into those who may be served and those who may not,” In-N-Out said in a statement.
In-N-Out’s refusal to enforce vaccination rules has prompted an outpouring of support from conservative politicians, including Mike Pence. The beloved chain is owned by conservative Christians, and several executives have made donations to the Republican party and Donald Trump.
Well, Mike Pence isn’t doing anything.
None of these people are doing anything.
The people are left to their own devices, and the people are not doing anything.
This is all just a massive slow-motion train wreck.
In-N-Out Burger needs to get out of California and into Florida. 🍔
