Boston Mayor Compares Vaccine Passports To Slave Papers, Dismisses Idea

Videos by OutKick

Boston mayor Kim Janey (D) said Tuesday that the idea of requiring citizens to show vaccine passports to enter businesses is reminiscent of troubling periods in U.S. history when asking to see papers was common practice.

When asked by a Boston television reporter about New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to require vaccine passports, Janey wouldn’t go as far as saying she would do the same, but she did encourage people to get vaccinated.

“There’s a long history in this country of people needing to show their papers,” Janey told WCVB. “During slavery, post-slavery, as recent as you know what immigrant population has to go through here. We heard Trump with the birth certificate nonsense. Here we want to make sure that we are not doing anything that would further create a barrier for residents of Boston or disproportionally impact BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) communities.”

“Instead, you want to lean in heavily with partnering with community organizations, making sure that everyone has access to the lifesaving vaccine. As it relates to people who want to encourage their workforce to get vaccinated, we certainly support that.”

At an event later in the day, Janey was asked again about her reference to slavery and vaccine passports, but she didn’t budge. “There is a long history of asking people to show their papers,” she said, according to the Boston Herald.

And as expected, Mayor Janey, who took office in March when former Boston mayor Marty Walsh was appointed labor secretary by President Biden, was quickly crushed for not falling in line on vaccine passports.

“When we are combating a deadly virus & vaccine hesitancy in some communities, this kind of rhetoric is dangerous,” City Councilor Andrea Campbell tweeted. “Showing proof of vaccination is not slavery or birtherism. We are too close to give ground to COVID. Science is science. It’s pretty simple – Vax up and mask up.”

  1. That’s the quickest way to end the vaccine passports. The only thing Libs are afraid of more than the Coronavirus is having anything they support linked to racism/slavery, whether it’s true or not.

  2. I agree with her that vaccine passports are wrong! If she has to compare it to slave papers to make her point, then so be it. Maybe it will convince other idiots (like DeBlasio) to think twice about who these rules are really impacting.

  3. My guess is that she just hasn’t gotten the memo yet but she’ll be for vaccine passports soon enough and all that Jim Crow slavery talk will just disappear. The left doesn’t have room for different opinions. I guarantee she’ll be pushing the vaccine passports as more left wing states do the same.

  4. When you are so insecure about your self worth you see everything through the lens of slavery – this is your thought process. blacks are by far the highest percentage of unvaccinated and this Mayor La’Quesha knows it… but the media will never report it and expose their sacred cow racial group to the Vaccination Mob.

    We will keep the Underground Railroad warm for you, Mayor La’Quesha.

  5. Are people of color ever accountable for anything? The vaccine is free. They’ll jab you any place, any time. Get it, don’t get it, just stop bitching about how unfair the world is. Go to fucking work.

  6. ““Instead, you want to lean in heavily with partnering..” Mayor La’Quesha said.
    For a minute there I thought she said PARENTING.

    Then I realized it was a brainwashed victimhood clown talking and I knew she would never stumble onto that correct answer.
