New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio has instituted a vaccine ID mandates in his city which bans the unvaccinated from many public spaces including restaurants, gyms, movie theaters and more.

These mandates have not gone over too well with the general public and especially with the business owners who have been tasked with enforcing DeBlasio’s edict.

Now some restaurant owners are fighting back by refusing to enforce the vaccine ID requirement and welcoming everyone into their establishments.

Via the Washington Free Beacon:

Some New York City restaurants will defy Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D.) order to ban unvaccinated people from entering businesses.

De Blasio’s mandate, which officially takes effect next week but will start being enforced Sept. 13, requires anyone who enters an indoor business in New York City to show proof of vaccination. The proof can come in the form of either the city’s “Key to NYC Pass,” the state’s “Excelsior Pass,” or a vaccination card.

But Pasticceria Rocco in Brooklyn won’t be requiring any passes from its customers, manager Mary Josephine Generoso told CBS New York. The award-winning Italian pastry shop and restaurant posted a sign in its window that reads: “We do not discriminate against ANY customer based on sex, gender, race, creed, age, vaccinated or unvaccinated.”

“Whether you’re vaccinated or not, you are welcome,” Generoso said. “I just don’t think that we’re going to be the vaccination police.”

Other New York restaurants are also striking a note of protest against regulations they consider government overreach.

At the moment only a few restaurant owners are publicly participating in this revolt, most likely out of fear of retaliation from the city, but we fully expect to see more business owners refusing to be Mayor DeBlasio’s “vaccine police.”

It is mind boggling that in America people are being asked to “show their papers” in order to access public spaces. This is not freedom but a new form of authoritarianism and tyranny.

What is sad is that many on the left and the right are okay with this.

Former California Governor and RINO Arnold Schwarzenegger just recently said to Americans “screw your freedom,” and he is not the only one in the GOP who thinks this way.

Kudos to those brave restaurant owners who are standing up for freedom and lets hope many more join them in the coming days and weeks.
