The FDP Protests the Mandatory Vax, Sort Of

It’s hard to classify Germany’s FDP (Freie Demokratische Partei, Free Democratic Party). It’s somewhat more free-market oriented and less totalitarian then all the other parties except for the AfD, but it’s hardly conservative by American standards. That fact is highlighted by the report below, in which some members of the FDP — which is part of the new governing coalition — state their opposition to the proposed federal “vaccine” mandate. It’s a weak dishwater sort of opposition, however — saying, in effect, “We need to put out lots of propaganda information pushing citizens to get vaxed, and vax people in hardware stores, sports clubs, etc.”

If this is the best Germany can do to resist the jab mandate, I don’t think there’s much doubt that the entire population will be eventually forced to get “vaccinated”.

There is rumor in the FDP about compulsory vaccination

One week after the start of the “traffic light” [Red=Socialists, Yellow=FDP, Greens] coalition of the federal government, there is already rumbling. More than twenty members of the FDP parliamentary group still seem to remember liberal promises made before the election and reject the introduction of a general vaccination requirement in a motion.

Just one week after the formation of the “traffic light” coalition for a new federal government, the three governing parties are now facing a dispute on the central domestic issue, the Corona crisis, after initial disagreements in foreign policy. More than twenty deputies of the FDP oppose the introduction of a general compulsory vaccination, as the Berliner Zeitung reported, citing dpa.

In their application, the FDP MPs demand that the German Bundestag must affirm “that there will be no general compulsory vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 in the Federal Republic of Germany”. However, the liberals combine their demand “with the appeal that as many people as possible continue to protect themselves against COVID-19 in the best possible way by taking advantage of the recommended offers of a Corona vaccination”.

Celebrity support

The FDP Bundestag Vice President Wolfgang Kubicki, who is likely to be one of the most prominent supporters of the proposal, is also a co-signer of the draft. However, Kubicki himself voted last week in favor of compulsory vaccination in the health service and in the nursing professions.

However, the federal government is now being called upon to “intensify efforts below the encroachment on fundamental rights of mandatory vaccination or so-called 2G measures.” The MPs obviously assume that there is still a need for information in society and propose “multilingual awareness-raising and advertising spots” as well as “a broad campaign for vaccination, supported by relevant social actors such as churches, Muslim associations, trade unions and sports clubs”.

Insufficient offers?

Above all, the liberal MPs have an eye on the supply side when administering the anti-corona vaccine: They demand that the federal government continue to maintain easily accessible options for vaccination and to intensify them, for example with vaccination campaigns at major events. Also vaccinations should be given in hardware stores and shopping centers during core business hours. The federal government should be commissioned to examine the possibility of a personal letter offering a vaccination appointment for all citizens of the country.

Inadequate vaccines

As written, the text of the application also refers to the compulsory vaccination against smallpox and measles. In both cases, if the entire population is vaccinated, an end to the spread can be expected or even already proven. However, it should be understood that “similar targets”, including “an extinction of the transmission of SARS-CoV-2”, “cannot be defined with the vaccines currently available because they cannot be achieved.”
