Zeldin is the Medical Freedom Candidate for NY Governor!

Full documentation of Zeldin’s Support for Medical Freedom

by Michael Kane

Lee Zeldin has 100% committed to a Medical Freedom platform in his run for New York Governor. He has made multiple on-the-record statements that prove this and I have included many of them in this report.

Since at least December of 2021 Zeldin has repeatedly made comments publicly in interviews, on his social media, in press releases as Congressman, and on his campaign website showing he is firmly committed to a platform of Medical Freedom. Below is a sampling of his documented commitment to Medical Freedom:

***

September 23, 2022: Tweet from Zeldin States: A judge just ruled that NYPD officers can’t be fired for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine and ordered those fired officers to be reinstated. A big victory! All COVID vaccine mandates in New York need to go. Everyone fired should be offered their jobs back with backpay.

***

September 18, 2022: Tweet from Zeldin states: NONE of these teachers should be fired for their personal decision whether or not to get the COVID vaccine. ALL should instantly be offered their jobs back. NOBODY in ANY occupation should be fired for this personal decision.

***

September 15, 2022: Tweet from Zeldin states: NOBODY should be fired for their personal decision whether to get the COVID vaccine. The judge in this case made the correct decision. ALL COVID mandates should end!

***

September 2, 2022: Tweet from Zeldin states: Society would be far better off if government was instead encouraging parents to be involved in their child’s education and upbringing to the max!

***

August 29, 2022: Fired teachers ask Zeldin if NYC workers should get their jobs back or will get their jobs back. Zeldin responds when he is Governor “out of the gate” he will offer fired & banned workers any vacant state positions that are applicable, and that he will apply pressure on NYC to rehire fired workers. The exchange was captured on video and posted on Instagram:

August 27, 2022, Tweet from Zeldin states: NOBODY should lose their job due to their personal decision not to get the COVID vaccine.

July 28, 2022, Tweet from Zeldin states: Under no circumstances, would I as Governor ever mandate the COVID vaccine on anyone of any age for any purpose. If you want to get it, then get it. If you don’t want to get it, then don’t get it. This is a personal decision and I respect medical freedom.

July 9, 2022, Tweet from Zeldin states, Once again, Kathy Hochul tried doing one of her infamous end runs around the constitution & required a court to deliver her yet another reality check. A judge just correctly ruled her Health Dept’s absurd isolation & quarantine reg is unconstitutional.

***

June 12, 2022, Tweet from Zeldin states: No COVID vaccine mandate at all should exist in any way, shape, or form on anyone.

***

June 8, 2022: In an interview with Breitbart broadcast on Sirius radio Zeldin shows firm support for Medical Freedom. Zeldin states, “All COVID mandates need to end, day one,” Zeldin stated. “They should be gone already.” Zeldin highlighted mask mandates imposed on schoolchildren as examples of government-decreed “child abuse” that obstruct natural human communication and associated learning. He also noted that the state doesn’t recognize natural immunity.

May 14, 2022, Tweet from Zeldin states: Great Q&A w/@teacher_choice. ALL COVID mandates must END, our toddlers should be unmasked, our fired workers should be rehired with back pay, the religious exemption should be restored, & remote learning should never replace in person learning. We covered all this & much more!

Speaking out against Hochul’s Quarantine Camps Regulation

January 7, 2022: Press Release from Congressman Zeldin’s Office: https://zeldin.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/rep-zeldin-reacts-governor-hochul-s-announcement-covid-booster-shot

Press release states: “Our state’s hospitals and other medical facilities are already understaffed. Governor Hochul’s last vaccine mandate for healthcare workers and resulting firings made this crisis worse. Now, she’s announced her intention to exacerbate the problem by requiring COVID booster shots. Enough with the threats, mandates, fines and firings! It’s time to respect medical freedom, follow ALL of the science, return to normal, and let New Yorkers go on with their lives.”

Press release states: “I strongly oppose the Governor’s unilateral decision to impose a statewide mask mandate. I also oppose her threatening rhetoric and firing of essential workers and her recent order to end elective procedures at hospitals across the state.

December 6, 2021: Press Release from Congressman Zeldin’s Office: https://zeldin.house.gov/media-center/press-releases/rep-zeldin-statement-new-york-statewide-mask-mandate

Press release states: “When you dangerously combine a far-left, lame duck politician, who is anti-business, one-dimensional, unaccountable, not bright and has a perpetual ‘I always know best’ attitude, you get Bill de Blasio, the Worst Mayor in America. There is no way this job killing, small business suppressing mandate is legal!”

  1. Lee Zeldin uses mostly standard GOP talking points. He doesn’t lead on medical freedom. In his interview on WINS last week he didn’t mention that Hochul and James are appealing the quarantine camp decision. He whispers about medical freedom. He should be shouting!

  2. Glad these comments are now on record. This makes me open to what he has to say. It also makes me keep his comments in mind when I go to the polls this November.
