Just when you thought there was some hope that America is moving away from the fascistic COVID policies currently on the lips of every elected Democratic politician, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio thrusts us right back into the abyss.
The out-and-proud Communist announced on Tuesday that New York City will soon require proof of vaccination for anyone who wishes to dine indoors, go to the gym, attend a concert, visit a museum, and a broad list of other indoor activities.
The new requirement, which will be phased in over several weeks in August and September, is the most aggressive step the city has taken yet to curb a surge in cases caused by the Delta variant. People will have to show proof that they have had at least one dose of a vaccine.

The Democrat said some details of how the program will work still need to be worked out. The policy will go into effect on Aug. 16 but inspections and enforcement won’t begin until Sept. 13, the week that the city’s public schools reopen for the fall.
Vaccination cards will be accepted as proof of inoculation, along with state and city apps.
De Blasio has focused on getting as many New Yorkers vaccinated as possible while resisting calls to mandate masks indoors, as several other Far-Left cities have done.
De Blasio said Monday he was making “a strong recommendation” that everyone wear a mask in public indoor settings but stressed that the city’s “overwhelming strategic thrust” remained getting more people vaccinated.
The mayor announced last week that city employees would be required to get vaccinated by mid-September or to face weekly testing, and he has offered a $100 incentive for city residents who get inoculated.
About 66% of adults in New York City are fully vaccinated, according to official data.
On Monday, the United States reached Joe Biden’s goal of 70% vaccination rate in the adult population. The goal was set for July 4, but Biden failed to reach his milestone at that time. Since then, there’s been a series of propaganda campaigns from federal and state governments to convince Americans to get jabbed.
New York City is currently offering $100 cash incentives to convince residents to get a shot.
