Army Officer: I Took All the Other Vaccines but I Won’t Get COVID Jab Because ‘Freedom’
A lieutenant colonel who says he will resign from the Army rather than get the COVID-19 vaccine declared on Fox News Wednesday night that while he has taken all the other vaccinations required by the military, he won’t get the coronavirus shot because of “freedom.”
In a resignation letter that was shared by his wife on Twitter last week, Lt. Col. Paul Douglas Hague objected to the Pentagon’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccination order for all members of the U.S. military. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin issued the mandate after the Food and Drug Administration fully approved Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine.
“First, and foremost, I am incapable of subjecting myself to the unlawful, unethical, immoral and tyrannical order to sit still and allow a serum to be injected into my flesh against my will and better judgment,” Hague wrote, adding that he was also resigning due to what he views as “an ideologically Marxist takeover of the United States government at their upper echelons.”
