Comedian Jim Breuer Cancels Shows at Venues ‘Due to Segregation’ of Forced Vaccinations

One comedian is standing up to vaccine mandates, and one of the few celebrities brave enough to put his money where his mouth is, and he should be commended. Saturday Night Live alum Jim Breuer took to Facebook live to release a statement that he would not perform at venues demanding patrons receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

In a 22 minute Facebook live, Breuer said “two quick updates on shows that you may think you may be getting tickets to or you already have tickets to: The Wellmont Theater in New Jersey – not doing it.”

“Also the Royal Oak Theater in Michigan, due to the segregation of them forcing people to show up with vaccinations…I am also not doing those shows” added Breuer.

Aware of the monetary repercussions, Breuer stood by his morals. “I know I’m going to sacrifice a lot of money, but I’m not going to be enslaved to the system or money.”

Breuer continued that he believed getting vaccinated was “a choice” and was not concerned with any opinions of his fans or the public. “If you have anything else to say, I honestly don’t care.”

“Due to, I have to stick to my morals, I have to stick to what I know is right” he added. The comedian also noted his disappointment that patrons were being “forced” and “bribed” before they could attend shows.

While he stated he doesn’t blame venues for enforcing vaccine mandates in some cases, but rather governors and ticketing vendors. He said the venues were being held “hostage.” NBC News reported neither the Wellmont Theater nor the Royal Oak Theater responded to requests for comment Monday.

Breuer, 54, was part of the Saturday Night Live cast from 1995 to 1998 and was known for recurring characters including Goat Boy and celebrity impersonation of Joe Pesci. He was also in the 1998 film “Half Baked” alongside Dave Chappelle.

    Drug companies have to find a way to pay for all the judgements against them but this isn’t the way, it will open the door for more down the road when like the cigarette companies it comes out they knew things but kept it quite to sell their product. I could be wrong but what if I’m not? That is why people should be allowed to choose for themselves. If government forces this they are liable for all harm done, but isn’t that what lobbyist for drug companies would want?

Biden Says He Doesn’t Think COVID Is ‘Here To Stay’

Joe Biden

On Friday, President Biden said he doesn’t think that COVID-19 is here to stay, but added that he does think the virus will remain around the world.

“No, I don’t think COVID is here to stay, but having COVID in the environment here and in the world is probably here to stay,” Biden told reporters at the White House.
“COVID as we’re dealing with it now is not here to stay, the normal doesn’t have to be. We have so many more tools we developed and we continue to develop that can contain COVID and other strains of COVID,” he added.

Biden’s comments come shortly after six of his former health advisers, who helped him with the COVID-19 pandemic during his presidential transition, published three opinion articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association urging Biden to change his strategy in responding to COVID-19 to one accepting that the virus was here to stay and learning how to live with it.

“They say the first thing the administration needs to do is take a broader vision, by recognizing that Covid-19 is here to stay. In one article, Dr. Emanuel and two co-authors — Michael T. Osterholm, an epidemiologist at the University of Minnesota, and Dr. Celine Gounder, an infectious disease expert at New York University — pointedly note that in July, Mr. Biden proclaimed that ‘we’ve gained the upper hand against this virus,’ which in retrospect was clearly not the case,” The New York Times reported.

Biden’s comments suggest he has not yet listened to the advice of these experts, even as the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened to reaching over 1 million new daily cases.

Former COVID Advisory Board tells Biden corona now ‘one of several circulating respiratory virus’ like flu

Doctors who once advised President Biden on how to handle the coronavirus are now telling him to change his strategy via a series of published articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

The six doctors, Drs. Ezekiel Emanuel, Michael Osterholm, Celine Gounder, David Michaels, Rick Bright and Luciana Borio were members of the advisory board that worked with Biden during his transition period before taking office.

“As the omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 demonstrates, COVID-19 is here to stay” and therefore Biden’s national strategy must be “updated.”

“The goal for the ‘new normal’ with COVID-19 does not include eradication or elimination, eg, the ‘zero COVID’ strategy. Neither COVID-19 vaccination nor infection appears to confer lifelong immunity,” they wrote.

“Current vaccines do not offer sterilizing immunity against SARS-CoV-2 infection. Infectious diseases cannot be eradicated when there is limited long-term immunity following infection or vaccination or nonhuman reservoirs of infection.”

The “new normal,” they explained, should be “recognizing that SARS-CoV-2 is but one of several circulating respiratory viruses that include influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and more.”

The doctors also pointed out there are many treatments with varying levels of effectiveness such as remdesevir and dexamethasone, monoclonal antibody treatment, and oral treatments like Molnupiravir and Paxlovid.

“Finally,” Fox News reports, they said it is imperative “to rebuild trust in public health institutions and a belief in collective action in service of public health.”
