It happened after the medical doctor and media personality suggested on Twitter that requiring vaccination passports for traveling internationally strips people of their freedom.
These vaccine passports segregate people and strip them of their freedom to travel internationally. Vaccinations are important, and I encourage everyone to get the Covid vaccine, but how would you feel if international travel also required other vaccinations?
International travel requires vaccinations, & has for decades. I had to get them to visit Brazil in 1999, & India in 2015. The USA requires foreign nationals to be vaccinated: https://t.co/gHhA4VKnMX I felt fine. Vaccines work. I want to be protected against preventable disease. pic.twitter.com/iGmI7Erwe6
After getting massively “ratioed” for the tweet, Pinsky apparently decided that rather than admitting he was wrong, it would be better to post a cryptic quote from former President Theodore Roosevelt.
“It’s not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done then better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena.” -Teddy Roosevelt #DareGreatly
