Conor McGregor Slams EU Vax Mandates as “War Crime”

( UFC fighter Conor McGregor came out swinging against the European Union’s vaccine mandates, calling forced vaccination a “war crime.”

McGregor made his remarks after Irish politician Neale Richmond criticized McGregor for suggesting it was time for Ireland to leave the European Union.

In a now-deleted tweet, McGregor blasted Ireland’s support of the EU, arguing “economic partnership should not mean political surrender.” He accused Ireland of suffering from Stockholm syndrome and added “Forced vaccine is a war crime.”

After getting blowback from the usual “How Dare You!” reply-bots, in another now-deleted tweet, McGregor defended his assertion that forcing people “to inject something into their body” is a crime, adding people have the right to choose.

McGregor predicted that forced vaccinations were coming and the “lap-dogs in power will just do as they are told.”

Conor McGregor is probably right. If the COVID response from governments has taught us anything, it’s that the people in power take to tyranny like a fish to water. You just need to look at what’s happening in Australia to know just how far governments are willing to go to force citizens to comply.

Germany has already forced the unvaccinated into lockdown while Chancellor Angela Merkel has endorsed making vaccines compulsory. The German parliament will be voting on compulsory vaccines shortly and Merkel’s successor has also signed on to this draconian plan.

Vaccines are already compulsory in Austria, and Greece will be making them compulsory for everyone over the age of sixty.

As yet, no country has hopped onto the “Forced Vaccination” bandwagon McGregor fears, but at this point, it won’t be a surprise if some country does.

Shortly after the initial tweets were deleted, McGregor tweeted a milder statement reasserting that forced vaccinations are “abhorrently wrong.” He reiterated that he is not opposed to vaccines, but he is opposed to “not having the choice.”

That replacement tweet was deleted as well. Later, McGregor tweeted the link to an article about his Twitter statements posted on his website The Mac Life.

McGregor has previously explained whenever he tweets controversial statements, he “tweets and deletes” to avoid “negativity on my channels.”
