Oklahoma National Guard Refuses to Mandate Vaccines Despite Pentagon Order

Good for General Mancino.

“No Oklahoma Guardsman will be required to take the COVID-19 Vaccine,” Army Brig. Gen. Thomas Mancino wrote in a Thursday memo. The memo was at odds with a Defense Department directive that the “total force” – including the National Guard – must be vaccinated against COVID-19



“It is irresponsible for the federal government to place mandatory vaccine obligations on Oklahoma national guardsmen which could potentially limit the number of individuals that I can call upon to assist the state during an emergency,” Stitt wrote in a Nov. 1 letter to Austin.


“This mandate violates the personal freedoms of many Oklahomans, as it asks them to potentially sacrifice their personal beliefs in order to not lose their jobs,” Stitt wrote. “All of our national guardsmen take this calling very seriously. These are patriotic citizens who are willing to put their lives on the line to protect others in our communities during times of greatest need.”

    Oh, it’s also been stated by three patriotic judges to be unconstitutional and staggeringly overbroad,.. and I think they also said “fatally flawed”. That’s what we in the legal arena call a “bitch slap”.

    The vaccines mandates are just for power by tyrannical, mostly liberal and RINO dictators.
    They saw what they could get away with last year with the lock downs and mask mandates, now they are upping the ante to see what they can get away with.
    Who knows what they will think of next? Locking up people arrested for parading and throwing them in solitary confinement or sending the FBI to harass parents who care about their children?
