Rounding up the unclean unvaccinated: What the left nationwide wants.
They’re coming for you next: A Florida landlord is now demanding that any future tenant show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 or they will be turned away, and any present unvaccinated tenant move when their lease expires.
If you’re not vaccinated for COVID-19, you can forget about moving into any of eight apartment complexes in Broward and Miami-Dade counties owned by Santiago A. Alvarez and his family.
And if you’re still unvaccinated when it comes time to renew your lease, you’ll have to find someplace else to live.
Alvarez, who controls 1,200 units in the two counties, is the first large-scale landlord known to national housing experts to impose a vaccine requirement not only for employees, but also for tenants. They’ll be required to produce documentation that they’ve received at least an initial vaccine dose.
The policy, which took effect Aug. 15, could set Alvarez’s company on a collision course with Gov. Ron DeSantis’ vaccine passport ban, which prohibits businesses from requiring that customers be vaccinated.
The story reports that already two tenants have contacted attorneys with plans to challenge this discriminatory policy in court. Note too that since the largest percentage of unvaccinated individuals comes from the black community, Alvarez is essentially discriminating against blacks with this policy. It seems that, for the left, the mantra “Housing is a right!” now only applies to those who agree with them. All others should be homeless.
It also appears increasingly that the left sees all those who disagree with them as no different than lepers. Such people must be quarantined in isolated camps and whose touch or presence must be avoided at all costs. How so very tolerant and open-minded of them!
Whether Alvarez succeeds in blackballing all unvaccinated individuals from his real estate will depend on whether the courts enforce Florida governor DeSantis’ new anti-vaccine passport policy, which calls for $5000 fines each time a business demands vaccination documentation from someone.
Alvarez’s attorney, Juan C. Zorrilla of the Fort Lauderdale-based firm Fowler White Burnett, recently responded to a letter from a tenant’s attorney by asserting that the policy does not violate DeSantis’ executive order banning vaccine passports, nor does it violate laws barring discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, familial status or religion.
DeSantis’ order and subsequent state law say that a business entity may not require “patrons or customers” to provide any documentation certifying COVID-19 vaccination or post-infection recovery “to gain access to, entry upon, or service from the business.”
Zorrilla asserted that Alvarez’s policy does not violate DeSantis’ ban because a tenant is not a “patron” or “customer.”
It seems to me that in a sane world, Zorrila’s assertion would be laughed out of court. We no longer live in a sane world, however, with many in power now eager to oppress anyone who dares challenge their off the cuff opinions or policies.
Everyone who reads this post should take another look at the image I posted above of Jewish women and children being rounded up by the Nazis. When I first posted this historical image in connection with the left’s blacklisting culture, I received comments claiming I was way off base, that genocide and concentrations camps have nothing to do with vaccine and mask mandates.
I have gotten similar comments in other blacklist posts. All are the same: I am over reacting, the blackballing we are seeing now is totally different than the Nazis, and it is insulting to even suggest a parallel.
And just like in Nazi Germany, those commenters are being either incredibly naive, intellectually dishonest, or outright liars for the sake of promoting exactly this behavior. We now in America are really not too far away from concentration camps and genocide, in the name of good health. And we edge closer to that horror each time someone makes believe all of this is not happening.
