Appearing on Fox News Thursday, Senator Rand Paul warned that the very same people who for four years screeched about president Trump leading the country into authoritarianism have seized power and instituted the most draconian crackdown ever seen in U.S. history.

The Senator responded to an op ed by Juliette Kayyem, a former assistant secretary for homeland security under Obama who seriously argued that unvaccinated people should be banned from flying.

“The CDC says you’re not supposed to get vaccinated if you’ve been infected within three months. So what are we going to do? Tell people that they can’t fly for three months, even according to the CDC?” Paul questioned.

Describing the idea of no-fly lists for the unvaccinated as “obscene,” Paul added “You know that if we now disagree in our personal medical decisions with the left, they’re going to declare that we’re a terrorist and that we can’t fly.”
