New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) spoke out on Sunday to shame the unvaccinated while appearing before Brooklyn’s Christian Cultural Center.
“I prayed a lot to God during this time, and you know what – God did answer our prayers,” Hochul said. “He made the smartest men and women, the scientists, the doctors, the researchers – he made them come up with a vaccine. That is from God to us, and we must say, thank you, God. Thank you.”
“And I wear my ‘vaccinated’ necklace all the time to say I’m vaccinated,” she added. “All of you, yes, I know you’re vaccinated, you’re the smart ones, but you know there are people out there who aren’t listening to God and what God wants. You know who they are.”
“I need you to be my apostles,” Hochul continued, going on to say that getting vaccinated is how the people of New York can “love one another.”
“I need you to go out and talk about it and say, we owe this to each other,” Hochul stated. “We love each other. Jesus taught us to love one another and how do you show that love but to care about each other enough to say, please get the vaccine because I love you. I want you to live, I want our kids to be safe when they’re in schools, I want to be safe when you go to a doctor’s office or to a hospital and are treated by somebody. You don’t want to get the virus from them.”
The day after Hochul made these comments, reports surfaced that she is preparing to sign an executive order allowing for the deployment of the National Guard members to help fill possible healthcare staff shortages when the state’s vaccine mandate takes effect. Tens of thousands of healthcare workers in New York may end up being fired once this mandate is officially put in place.
“We’re taking all the steps preemptively in anticipation of what I call a preventable staffing shortage – still preventable, enough hours in a day,” Hochul said during a press conference, according to The New York Times. “I don’t have to do this if people will get vaccinated, there’s plenty of hours left in the day, but I also know I need to be prepared.”

“We’ve sent out the alarm. We have a pool of individuals who want to help,” she added. “I would have much rather just been voluntary, but if I have to take steps to protect the people in terms of making sure I have replacements if necessary, I need to take those steps now, and that executive order will do just that.”
Hochul replaced Andrew Cuomo as governor of New York when he was forced to step down last month amidst his sexual harassment scandal. Clearly, she’s no better of a governor than her fellow Democrat predecessor was.
