California: Burger chain In-N-Out rejected San Francisco’s vaccine passport mandate after one of its stores was temporarily closed by city health officials because it found that employees “were not preventing the entry of customers who were not carrying proper vaccination documentation.” In-N-Out’s chief legal officer Arnie Wensinger said that local regulators informed the restaurant that their employees “must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every customer, then act as enforcement personnel by barring entry for any customers without the proper documentation.” The company fiercely disagrees with any government order that forces a private company to discriminate against customers who choose to patronize their business. Wensinger said, “This is clear governmental overreach and is intrusive, improper, and offensive.” The store has since reopened, but without indoor dining. The Irvine, California-based company is known for its conservative Christian owners.

Burger chain In-N-Out slammed San Francisco’s vaccine mandate after one of its stores was temporarily closed by city health officials — ripping the “offensive” order as “clear governmental overreach.”

The company said the San Francisco Department of Public Health closed one of its stores last week because it found that employees “were not preventing the entry of customers who were not carrying proper vaccination documentation.”

The “store properly and clearly posted signage to communicate local vaccination requirements,” In-N-Out’s chief legal and business officer Arnie Wensinger said in a statement.

“After closing our restaurant, local regulators informed us that our restaurant Associates must actively intervene by demanding proof of vaccination and photo identification from every customer, then act as enforcement personnel by barring entry for any customers without the proper documentation,” Wensinger added.

Good for In-N-Out for making the scum fascist government do its own dirty work. The “public health” establishment continues to destroy its legitimacy by this outrageous harassment of innocent people who are just trying to live their lives. Public health officials do not deserve such carte blanche absolute authority to push us around however they want to by simply saying, “it’s for your health.”

God bless them in their push back against this despotic violation of natural human rights and the constitution. Free human beings cannot rightfully be drafted to be unpaid police enforcers against their own customers. The petty despots who demand this kind of thing should be held accountable with severe penalties and loss of public office. In a righteous society this would be done immediately.
