Democrats largely oppose Georgia’s new election law requiring voter identification for absentee ballots because it is “racist,” but some are encouraging the creation of a “vaccine passport” despite vaccine hesitancy in black communities.

The Biden administration is reportedly working with undisclosed private tech companies to create vaccine passes for Americans to use as proof that they are immunized against COVID-19 in order to gain access to certain services that require vaccination. Some elected officials such as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis have already taken swift action to denounce the proposed passports, citing privacy concerns and the risk that Americans will be forced to do something they oppose in exchange for participation in “normal society.”

These concerns, however, have not stopped at least 17 other initiatives by organizations such as the World Health Organization and IBM from pushing for the collection of people’s vaccination information to “return to normal” at the same time a Democrat-led outrage against Georgia’s newest election laws requiring voter IDs continues.

Democratsactivist groupscorporate media, and their corrupt henchmen have largely characterized Georgia’s newest election law as a “racist” push by Republicans to marginalize black voters. Provisions in the new law such as requiring proof of identification with mail-in ballots, limiting the acceptance of absentee ballots within 11 days of an election, and banning third parties using goods and gifts to appease voters at a polling place, some claim, make it more difficult for minority groups to vote.

Even President Joe Biden repeatedly condemned the law as a “blatant attack on the right to vote, the Constitution, and good conscience.”

“It’s Jim Crow in the 21st Century,” Biden tweeted.

These complaints sparked campaigns to boycott Georgia, lobbying efforts for Peach State companies to speak out against the law, and accusations that the election reforms are “unconstitutional.” Organizations such as the New Georgia Project and the Black Voters Matter Fund, both civil rights groups suing the state over the new law, cite provisions such as requiring voter ID for absentee ballots as a major hurdle to “voters who are elderly, indigent, or from minority communities.”

Contrast that with the lack of Democratic concern that a vaccine passport would disproportionately discriminate against communities with high levels of vaccine hesitancy.
