French President Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday vowed to “piss off” the unvaxxed by making their lives miserable.
Macron also said someone who refuses the Covid vaccine is ‘not a citizen.’
“The unvaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And so, we’re going to continue doing so, until the end. That’s the strategy,” Macron said in an interview with Le Parisien.
“I won’t send (the unvaccinated) to prison, I won’t vaccinate by force. So we need to tell them, from Jan. 15, you won’t be able to go to the restaurant anymore, you won’t be able to down one, won’t be able to have a coffee, go to the theatre, the cinema…” he added.
A Covid passport will be required in order to enter restaurants, bars and theaters and other indoor venues beginning January 15.
Tourists visiting France will have to show proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test via a digital passport.
Macron’s ‘big stick’ approach to forcing vaccination includes threats of heavy fines and prison time for both business owners and patrons who don’t comply with his covid passport mandate.
Marine Le Pen responded to Macron’s dehumanization of the unvaxxed.
“A President shouldn’t say that. The guarantor of the unity of the nation persists in dividing it and assumes that he wants to make the unvaccinated second-class citizens. Emmanuel Macron is unworthy of his office. In April, I will be the President of all French people.” Le Pen said.
Un Président ne devrait pas dire ça. Le garant de l’unité de la nation s’obstine à la diviser et assume vouloir faire des non-vaccinés des citoyens de seconde zone. Emmanuel Macron est indigne de sa fonction.
