The Pittsburgh Steelers are making unvaccinated players wear yellow wristbands
· Jul 27, 2021 ·

Okay, I have to admit: I'm starting to get a little weirded out by this whole "single out the unvaccinated" movement.

Here's an example of this from the NFL:

Yes, that's the Pittsburgh Steelers singling out their unvaccinated players with a yellow wristband because that's a totally normal thing to do in 2021 and if you don't get vaccinated you're a second-class citizen.

Yes, the good ol' NFL, who will charge your team with a loss if you have an outbreak caused by those dirty anti-vaxxers within your organization and you're unable to reschedule a game.

You know, the organization which makes unvaccinated players follow very strict Covid protocols while vaccinated players just walk around like it's 2019.

These guys are even more of a joke now than they were when Kaepernick was in the league.

Now sure, I hear you saying it, "This is the NFL, they have to put on a show to be safe. At least they're being responsible."

And yeah, yeah, I get it. But the NFL is little more than a propaganda machine if you ask me. So this stuff is just a sneak-peak into the world the rest of us will soon be living in.

Also, the Babylon Bee satirized this marking of the unvaccinated back in late March, so maybe they should just stop writing satire over there because a lot of it is coming true and it is possible that they're giving our elites ideas.

Anyhow, there's at least one more team using this "single out the unvaccinated" technique and that team is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Likely, more teams will do this.

And what harm could be done here?

I mean, even though we now have politicians and media outlets blaming the unvaccinated for the prolonging of the pandemic, singling out those people won't cause any trouble, will it?

I'm sure nobody will treat them badly or anything.

And I'm sure they won't feel like dirty second-class citizens as everyone looks at them from a distance and prods them with a stick if they get too close.

This is all normal and we're not living in an extremely predictable dystopian sci-fi novel or anything like that.
