GOP Representative Slammed For Displaying A COVID-19 Vaccine Image That'makes No Logical Sense.'


Rep. Chip Roy (R-Texas) was accused of being irresponsible for criticizing President Joe Biden's door-to-door COVID-19 vaccination plan on Wednesday.

Roy responded to the Biden White House's latest push to end the coronavirus pandemic — amid a recent drop in vaccination rates and the spread of the more transmissible delta variant — with this reworked version of the Texas "come and take it" flag:

Hey, @POTUS, https://t.co/qR9l7GcL8G... pic.twitter.com/LzCSJt2qd7 — Chip Roy (@chiproytx) July 7, 2021

In another tweet, Roy argued that “door-to-door by feds only really contemplated in Constitution for census... and to protect our rights, eg 3rd and 4th amendments.”

The Texas Republican was not the only conservative who was offended by the proposal.

Roy has previously downplayed the risk of contracting the coronavirus, refused to self-quarantine, and appeared to break federal law by not wearing a mask on a commercial flight last month.

Critics accused him of being rash in his posting.

Some mistakenly mistook the image for a marinade injector:

How can you make fun of something that has killed millions of people? It's vile... — Tammie (@tlccourville) July 7, 2021

"I am pro-COVID" is an interesting platform to run on. — Dan Emerson (@dscapp) July 7, 2021

In addition to the general insanity and health risks associated with creating vax culture wars, this is moronic on a political level. COVID vaccination is a 75/25 issue. Why do Republicans want to hand this over to Biden? https://t.co/uPkv7Gcpka — Tim Miller (@Timodc) July 7, 2021

Imagine seeing data on new COVID hospitalizations and deaths that are almost entirely attributable to unvaccinated people and STILL refusing to believe the science. — Johnny (@ChobaniPoolside) July 7, 2021

This does not convey the message you believe it does, Chipper. — Steed, We Need You! (@ironwillwoman) July 7, 2021

This is illogical. The classic come and take it implies you'll get shot if you try to take the gun/land, but if you come and inject it, you get injected? That would actually double vaccinations. https://t.co/rQKV1cOch6 — Aaron Parseghian (@AaronParseghian) July 7, 2021

Mr. Roy, you're going to give the "jokers" on here ideas https://t.co/pumS4EAPim — Christopher Hooks (@cd_hooks) July 7, 2021

Look, I know a lot of my followers have Photoshop skills, and I just want to emphasize that this is serious business, and you should never replace the silhouette of a needle with the silhouette of something else. https://t.co/EyuxiIB9r1 — Max Kennerly (@MaxKennerly) July 7, 2021
