"They must suffer" says Health Minister.
After the government put unvaccinated people under their own lockdown, video out of Austria shows police patrolling shops and highways checking people’s vaccination status.
In a move that was confirmed over the weekend, authorities have now imposed a lockdown that only affects the unjabbed, meaning they can only leave their homes for “essential reasons” such as food shopping. These measures, which are the first of their kind in the world, impact the roughly 35 percent of Austrians who haven’t had both doses of the vaccine.
The new rules are seen as a testbed for the rest of Europe and are being watched closely by SAGE who previously recommended compulsory vaccination for Brits with similar punishments for those who disobey the diktat.
Latest footage from Austria shows paramilitary-style police patrolling shopping arcades demanding to see people’s vaccination status in horrific echos of Nazi occupied countries during the Second World War.
Another clip showed a police officer stopping a vehicle on a highway to check vaccination status. Those caught outside without proof of vaccination face fines of up to 1,450 Euros, whilst persistent offenders may face prison time for breaking the rules.
Austria’s Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg said the lockdown was designed to make the unvaccinated “suffer” as everyone else had done during earlier lockdowns.
The Austrian Apartheid comes the very same week as people commemorated the end of South Africa's Apartheid with the death of FW De Klerk. To implement such a scheme, in a western, supposedly civilised, country would have seemed unthinkable just two years ago. Now these new tyrannical diktats are imposed with hardly a raised eyebrow.
