Rep. Warren Davidson (R-Ohio) took aim at Covid vaccine card mandates in Washington, DC with a Nazi Germany comparison, only to find numerous critics blasting the message, including the Auschwitz Memorial Museum.
Davidson tweeted in response to a message from DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, who reminded residents of the US capital that the city will require proof of Covid vaccination for people 12 and up, and photo IDs for those 18 and older, beginning on Saturday. Masking in public is also mandatory.
Bowser’s tweet received plenty of criticismfrom lawmakers, but the response to stand out the most may have been Davidson’s, who wrote, “This has been done before,” adding a picture of an identification card used in Nazi Germany.
The card documented the origin of its holder, and was part of the Nazi segregationist policy primarily targeting Jews.
