A MAN calling himself the “vaccine police” harassed Walmart pharmacists and threatened that they would be “executed” if they continued administering COVID-19 vaccines.
Christopher Key, an entrepreneur known for his anti-vaccine stance, entered the pharmacy of a Springfield, Illinois Walmart alongside his “Missouri crew” while pharmacists locked the door and hid in fear.
According to the Springfield News-Ledger, he shouted through the door, “You are being put on notice! And if they give one more vaccine, as of this day after being put on notice, then they can be hung up. And they can be executed.”
Key livestreamed to Facebook as he barked threats at the terrified workers for the next half hour.
“What they’re doing here is they’re violating the Nuremberg Code, and if you allow one more shot to go into one more person’s body, you yourself can be executed,” he yelled.
“It’s a violation of the Nuremberg Code. I do this out of love, I’m not trying to give you any fear and intimidation — I’m just letting you guys know that if you continue to do this, that you guys will be held accountable.”
Key’s rant turned dangerous, as he compared the pharmacists to Nazi physicians during the Holocaust, warning that they would be “hung up at the stake.”
“I do this out of love. I don’t want that pharmacist to be hung up at the stake like happened to those pharmacists, those medical doctors, those nurses, those clergymen in Germany.
“That’s what happened to those guys when all they did was following orders. They went to death.”
When police arrived, Key told them he had been refused vaccination.
“We’re here to get our vaccine and for some reason they shut down the doors and all I want to do is get my vaccines,” he said.
“All I want is my vaccine. So I’m trying to figure out why the pharmacy is closed down because we all here want to get a vaccine.”
He finally left after the officer asked him to, but not before threatening a lawsuit and informing Walmart employees that he “would be back.”
Key had previously turned up at an anti-vaccine rally at Mercy Hospital on Saturday after a vaccine mandate was announced for hospital employees.
He was joined by Missouri State Rep. Brian Seitz, along with more than 200 others.
Key claimed at the rally that a “sworn affidavit” from a CDC whistleblower showed that 45,000 people “died within three days of taking the vaccine.”
The number is linked to a lawsuit filed by “America’s Frontline Doctors,” a right-wing group that engages in vaccine misinformation.
The group claims that 45,000 people have died from COVID-19 vaccines, a number that is not backed by evidence.
The figure was apparently drawn from the government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, where people can anonymously report vaccine side effects.
