They told us masks, social distancing, lockdowns and curfews would be imposed temporarily until vaccination. Another lie. Remember, they told us the lockdown would stop the spread of the virus. It was the first time in history that we confined a healthy population to fight a virus. This experiment turned out to be ineffective and extremely costly.

[Masks are] a small inconvenience for possible long-term freedom. [...] [In our household,] we go slow on vaccinations, even before Covid.

In an interview at The Pat McAfee Show

I’m not some sort of anti-vaxx flat earther. I am somebody who’s a critical thinker. I march to the beat of my own drum. I believe strongly in bodily autonomy, and the ability to make choices for your body, not to have to acquiesce to some woke culture or crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something. I’m making the decision that’s best for me and my health, and for me, it was a no-brainer. [...] I’m a non-vaxxed person, so the right is gonna champion me, and the left is gonna cancel me, but the whole time, I don’t give a s**t about either of them. The only desire I have is to empower people out there to take autonomy over their body.

Canadians who didn't get their two vaccines are losing their jobs. This idea that vaccine passports are necessary to create a safer workplace is not based on science, because we know that anyone, vaccinated or not, can catch the virus and spread it. Imposing a vaccine passport is an irrational and discriminatory policy.

They want you to get vaccinated for the Met. if I get vaccinated it won’t for the Met. It’ll be once I feel I’ve done enough research. I’m working on that now. In the meantime my loves, be safe. Wear the mask with 2 strings that grips your head & face. Not that loose one

In a video on his Youtube channel

With freedom comes obligations and responsibilities, We cannot just say, ‘I have the right to do X, Y and Z.’ When you affect other people, that is when it gets serious. […] You cannot go not put the mask on because when you breathe, you can infect someone else. And you can infect someone that then gets sick and may die. Yeah, you have the freedom to wear no mask. But you know something, you’re a schmuck for not wearing a mask because you’re supposed to protect the fellow members around you […] I don’t want to villainize anyone here, but I just wanted to tell everyone, let’s work together and let’s stop fighting because there is a virus, and it’s better to get vaccinated [and] to wear a mask.

In an interview with The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

I hug people in the middle of COVID. [...] I’m sorry, I understood stopping life for a little while, but they cannot continue to stop life because of politics. And right now they’re stopping because of politics. And on CNN last night, it finally came out that the masks we’re all wearing are useless. But I’ve known that for six months. They don’t do anything. They don’t stop you from getting COVID. They’re just a nuisance and make your nose itch and make it so you can’t breathe. The only good masks are N95. But we got one and it was so badly made, the straps were so short, they would go on a child. So we had to go on the airplane with the paper masks and then on the way back, we got a Nazi: “Get your mask on now!” They’re power mad now. [...] If I die, I die, but I’m not going to be controlled.

vaxxed n masked. :black_heart: this is your gentle reminder to please get your vaccines if you are eligible. this thing is not yet over ! sharing some info because i care and if i can, i’d like to help anybody who is hesitant or curious with making their decision. this delta variant is very new and since data is changing all the time, i’ll source some links for you to stay up to speed yourself but so far… we do know that it spreads much more easily compared to previous variants. most of the spread is among unvaccinated people and in areas with low vaccination rates ! and yes although you can still get it while vaccinated, the vaccine helps to protect against severe illness, hospitalization, and death ! all great things to be protected against in my book. oh and if you have already gotten sick with COVID-19, you should STILL get vaccinated !

I mean, I'm pissed. It's because there's not enough unification. We all love each other in the restaurant business. We're all chefs together and so forth. But airlines have big powerful money and attorneys and lobbyists. And we've got home-built restaurant companies that were passed down from a restaurant, that were passed down from generations, with not as much energy and power and unification.

On Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update, talking about anti-Covid lockdown protesters on Staten Island

The argument that people in Staten Island don’t want to drink outside can be disproven by going to literally any little league game. One guy at the protest even gave a speech where he literally compared not being able to drink indoors to being Jewish during the Holocaust, which must have been awkward for the people there who had to suddenly pretend they believed in the Holocaust. […] What’s the worst thing about Staten Island? They’re making us look like babies. You know it’s bad when even people in Boston are like, ‘Ah, drink at home, you queers!’

In an interview with The Daily Beast

There are people losing jobs, there are small businesses who are going bankrupt, there are millions of people who are unemployed right now, people are turning to alcohol and drugs to cope with everything that’s going on. This is the most detrimental thing to our society. COVID cases are at less than 1 percent, and I think the disease is a hoax.

In a conversation with Joe Biden, hosted by Elle

I have a whole list of things that I want our next president to do for us. But first, I just want Trump out. His mouth gets us in trouble so much. I don’t want to be lied to—we’re dealing with a pandemic right now, and I just want answers. I want to know when this will be over. I want to go back to my job. But I don’t want someone to lie to me and tell me that it’s okay not to wear a mask, that everything is going to be okay. I want a president to tell me what the steps are for us to get better, to tell me, "This is why it is taking so long, this is why other countries are doing better than ours." Tell me the truth, the hard-core truth. And also what I want is free Medicare. It’s important to have free [healthcare] because look what is happening right now. Of course, I think we need free college. And I want Black people to stop getting killed and no justice for it. I’m tired of it. I’m sick of it. I just want laws that are fair to Black citizens and that are fair for cops, too. If you kill somebody who doesn’t have a weapon on them, you go to jail. You know what? If I kill somebody, I’ve got to go to jail. You gotta go to jail, too. That’s what I want.

In a speech after signing an extension to the paycheck protection program

Equal justice under the law must mean that every American receives equal treatment in every encounter with law enforcement regardless of race, color, gender, or creed. They have to receive fair treatment from law enforcement. They have to receive it. We all saw what happened last week. We can't let that happen. Hopefully George is looking down right now and saying, this is a great thing that's happening for our country. This is a great day for him. It's a great day for everybody. It's a great day for everybody. This is a great, great day in terms of equality.
