DC Mayor Bowser reminds serfs they’ll need a photo ID, mask and vax papers ‘before heading out’

Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that residents essentially cannot leave their homes in the district unless they do so with three things in their possession.

“Remember that starting Saturday you will need these three things before heading out,” the Democrat posted Tuesday in a message on Twitter.

Those things were listed as:

1. Proof of Vaccination (12 years +)
2. Proof of Vaccination and Photo ID (18 years +)
3. Mask

 

Reactions poured in on how authoritarian measures are now dictating how people living in an American city are essentially being locked in their homes unless they comply.

But many others noticed another interesting factor – suddenly Democrats and the left think photo identification is a good thing.

Back in 2016, a U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned voter ID legislation in Texas, claiming it violated the Voting Rights Act.

At the time, the court found “that the poor are less likely to avail themselves of services that require ID, such as obtaining credit and other financial services. They are also less likely to own vehicles and are therefore more likely to rely on public transportation. As a result, the poor are less likely to have a driver’s license and face greater obstacles in obtaining photo identification.”

This narrative has been echoed by the left in every attempt to shut down requirements for identification in voting.

But Twitter users were quick to point out how Bowser’s latest requirement in Washington, D.C. seems to contradict this long-running narrative.
