(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- The United States might be slowly lifting COVID-19 mandates and policies, but the military is apparently still bogged down with nonsensical rules relating to the vaccine.
Reports this week reveal that a U.S. Navy warship was unable to deploy because its commanding officer refused to take the COVID-19 vaccine. Despite objecting to the vaccine for religious reasons, the officer’s refusal was not accepted and the ship was left unable to leave.
Apparently, the U.S. military’s leaders won’t honor a ruling from a federal judge that allowed the unnamed commanding office to continue in his role without discrimination. Despite the preliminary injunction from Judge Steve D. Merryday last month, both the commanding officer and his Lieutenant Colonel (who also filed a religious exemption) were still discriminated against and left unable to do their job.
Incredibly, this also isn’t the first time that the military has done something like this. Only last month, the United States Army confirmed that soldiers will be removed from their posts if they refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine…even though the pandemic is very quickly winding down and the threat of death is incredibly low for healthy troops.
If the United States Navy is stopping American warships from setting sail because troops don’t want to take a vaccine that they don’t need, then what kind of message does that send to Russia?
