Axios editor says Americans who opposed door-to-door vaccines are “national security threats”
So, it begins! You’re now a national security threat if you object to door-to-door vaccines, according to Dan Primack, a business editor at Axios. As we reported yesterday, Biden says the government will now be going door-to-door to Americans who have not been vaccinated and get them vaccinated through what he called “targeted community outreach.”
The announcement took the internet by storm and Americans went on social media to share their opinions. As expected, Americans with conservative viewpoints said the vaccination should be voluntary and government should not be knocking at their doors to take the vaccines, and that the government is going too far. For example, Congressman Dan Crenshaw and a former US Navy SEAL who served this country with bravery said:
“How about don’t knock on my door. You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose. Why is that concept so hard for the left?”
How about don’t knock on my door.
You’re not my parents. You’re the government. Make the vaccine available, and let people be free to choose.
Why is that concept so hard for the left? https://t.co/Fkv3kzNh6S

On the other side, we have the elite media lecturing and labeling anyone who opposed the idea of door-to-door vaccination as a national security threat. In other words, anyone who doesn’t do what they were told is a threat that must be dealt with. For example, in response to Biden’s call for door-to-door vaccination outreach, Axios editor Dan Primack said:
“We know that access and timing r why many people haven’t gotten COVID vaccines who otherwise want them (per surveys, etc.). So of course it makes sense to go door-to-door offering them. Objecting to this is really objecting to the public health, economic health & nat’l security.”

For some people who may not know who Dan Primack is, below is his bio according to the information on the Axios website.
“Dan Primack is business editor at Axios, and author of the daily Pro Rata newsletter, covering deals and deal-makers from Wall Street to Sand Hill Road. He also hosts the daily Pro Rata podcast, covering the collision of tech, business and politics. He’s based in Boston, and previously was a senior editor at Fortune and an editor-at-large with Reuters.”
In response to Dan’s tweet, a Twitter user by the name of Wag said: “National security risk? Seriously? Let’s hear the details on this….”

For students of history, the idea of labeling people with opposing views is nothing new idea. It was the same tactic used in Nazi Germany during the Hitler era.
For example, in the months after Adolf Hitler took power as Führer of Germany, the Storm Troopers (SA) and Gestapo agents went from door to door looking for Hitler’s enemies. Socialists, Communists, trade union leaders, and those who had spoken against Hitler and the Nazi Party were arrested. Some were jailed and some were killed.
It’s also ironic that mainstream media also honored Hitler when he was named in 1938 as “Time Person of the Year” by The Time magazine. Hitler later killed millions of Jews.
Another U.S. Congresswoman compares Biden’s door-to-door vaccination effort to Nazi Gestapo ‘brown shirts.’ In a post on Twitter, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene said: “Biden pushing a vaccine that is NOT FDA approved shows covid is a political tool used to control people. People have a choice, they don’t need your medical brown shirts showing up at their door ordering vaccinations.”
Meanwhile, just in case the tweet gets deleted, below is a screenshot of Dan Primack’s original tweet.
