Americans who have not had the experimental COVID-19 vaccinations by the thousands are losing their jobs.
Sometimes they can’t get on airlines, or enter public buildings, or go shopping as they want, or attend various public events.
But likely the most aggressive actions against the “unvaxxed” are being taken by colleges and universities, including the threat from Colorado State University officials that students could be arrested for trespassing, a move that sounds suspiciously like a “Big Brother” government that in novels instills fear in everyone.
And a backlash is being triggered by the extremes to which schools are going.
Take, for example, the threat at CSU in Fort Collins, Colorado, that was outlined by the Daily Mail.
The school recently sent hundreds of letters to students who apparently had not yet given school officials their latest and more accurate COVID-19 details.
The school threat started out: “I am writing to you on behalf of Student Conduct Services at the Student Resolution Center because information provided to our office by the Pandemic Preparedness Team indicates you have not submitted your proof of vaccination or requested an exemption. Since your non-compliance with this requirement poses a threat to the safety and well-being of the university community, the following interim measure applies to you.”
It then states a “trespass order.”
“Effective immediately, you are trespassed from all university property until May 16, 2022. This means you are not permitted to be on any university property or in any university buildings, this includes but is not limited to, residence halls, university apartments, dining halls, in-person classes, the Morgan Library, the Rec Center, and the Lory Student Center. Please note that faculty are not required to make alternative arrangements for the students to complete their course work away from campus while you are trespassed from campus. If you are found on university property or in any university building you may be cited or arrested for trespassing and face further disciplinary action.”
The Daily Mail pointed out tuition in Fort Collins is $31,712 a year for out-of-state students.
Other restrictions include one at the University of Southern Cal that doesn’t allow students to take sips of water in class because they would have to lower their masks.
Mask mandates are common, for students and staff.
In fact, the report said, being vaccinated won’t get you out of those requirements mostly.
Also, there are demands for students to install apps on their phones to track them everywhere they go, their travels are being restricted and weekly testing required.
The reaction is a foregone conclusion, the Daily Mail said. “The messy new era of the pandemic has some students and millions of Americans increasingly frustrated, with one student calling it ‘the growth of the surveillance state’ and that it ‘feels like the school is blackmailing me.'”
The other result is a series of Change.org petitions insisting on a restoration of rights.
One reaction developed in response to a demand that students wear tracking buttons. Nearly 2,500 signed to protest the “violation of their privacy” and the college backed down.
The public reaction even caused Colorado State to say the unvaccinated “are welcome,” but officials just have to know who they are.
The report also noted Rutgers excludes unvaccinated students from classes, even if they are completely online.
“It’s the growth of the surveillance state,” warned student Dan Smith, from Wayne State University in Detroit.
