Disgusting GOP House Member Rep. Thomas Massie (KY) Compares Vaccine Passports To Holocaust

Possibly one of the skeeviest. snake oil salesman and fake Libertarian/Republicans to EVER walk the halls of Congress Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky took to Twitter where he posted and then deleted a tweet Wednesday night comparing vaccine mandates to the NAZI Holocaust.

Mediaite reports:

On Wednesday, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) deleted a tweet that compared vaccine passports to the Holocaust. The gross tweet featured a photo of a person’s arm with a series of digits on it, reminiscent of the serial numbers that the Nazis tattooed onto the arms of concentration camp inmates during the Holocaust.

The overlaying text read, “If you have to carry a card on you to gain access to a restaurant, venue or an event in your own country, that’s no longer a free country.

”Massie isn’t the first House Republican to invoke the Holocaust to rail against Covid-related restrictions. In May, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said that pandemic precautions put into place by Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the Capitol reminded her of Nazism.

Massie e is also a co-sponsor of the “Fire Fauci Act,” which was brought forward by Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene. The act called for Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), to have his salary reduced to $0 until he is replaced.

The majority of (sane) American’s hail Dr. Fauci as a hero and credit him with the saving of millions of lives through his hard work and planning during the COVID 19 pandemic.

As for the likes of Tom Massie and Marjorie Taylor Greene.

You get the tar. I’ll get the feathers.
