On Tuesday, President Joe Biden downplayed concerns that many Americans have about his vaccine mandates going too far and encroaching on their individual freedoms.
“Your vaccine mandates have suffered some setbacks in court recently,” WHIOTV 7 reporter John Bedell said. “Federal judges have halted three of those COVID vaccine mandates.”
“Are you going to back down or are you going to continue to fight those in court?” Bedell asked.
“This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated. Not the vaccinated, the unvaccinated. That’s the problem,” Biden said. “Everybody talks about freedom about not to have a shot or have a test. Well, guess what? How about patriotism? How about you make sure you’re vaccinated, so you do not spread the disease to anyone else.”
“What about that?” Biden continued. “What’s the big deal?”
The American people decided to answer Biden’s question:
Because our rights are given to us by God NOT the government!

What about that? I’ll tell you what about it. Nobody should be forced or coerced into putting anything in their body they are not comfortable with. This all was just an excuse for governments to seize more power and control. I’m not complying.

Australians reportedly had a similar situation too:
