Tritt Sounds Off On Vaccine Requirements
“In light of recently announced policies and mandates from some entertainment companies, promoters, and local municipalities which would discriminate against specific concert attendees who are not vaccinated, I feel compelled to make a statement,” Tritt, 58, told Fox News.
“I have always been a huge defender of basic human rights and liberty for all,” he said. “No government, employer, or private entity should ever be allowed to infringe on those rights and liberties.”
Tritt went on to make his point about vaccine requirements being “discrimination,” adding that he believes that “all forms of discrimination need to be called out and condemned in the strongest terms possible.”

The musician then said he’ll back “anyone who is willing to publicly stand against discrimination and the squelching of any specific freedoms and basic human rights around the world.”
He also called on anyone who feels the same way as he does to “stand up” and “let your voices be heard.”
“The only way these injustices can be defeated is with a unified front against them,” the star said. “Use your voice to stand for what is right and against what is wrong. Long live freedom!”
Tritt concluded his statement by quoting Martin Luther King Jr., saying, “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”
Biden Calls For Vaccine Requirements
This comes after President Joe Biden called for more vaccine requirements on Monday, according to Politico.
“I’m calling on more companies in the private sector to step up with vaccine requirements that will reach millions more people,” Biden said at the White House. “If you’re a business leader, a nonprofit leader, a state or local leader, who has been waiting for full FDA approval to require vaccinations, I call on you now to do that — require it. It only makes sense to require a vaccine to stop the spread of Covid-19.”
Biden said this in response to the FDA fully approving the Pfizer vaccine against COVID-19.
“If you’re one of the millions of Americans who said that they will not get the shot until it has full and final approval of FDA: It has now happened,” he said. “The moment you’ve been waiting for is here.”
Speaking out against vaccine requirements puts celebrities in danger of being “cancelled” by the woke left. So, it was brave of Tritt to speak out in the way that he did.
This country was built on freedom, and many would agree with Tritt that vaccine requirements violate the freedoms that we’re all guaranteed as Americans.
