While this is purely a symbolic gesture, I love it.
There are more than a few things in this country we need to set ablaze, and scrubs are the least of the items on that list, but I digress….
Health care workers are fed up, and they have every right to be.
The same people who worked during the height of the pandemic, and were hailed as heroes, are now being forced to take an experimental vaccine or lose their livelihoods.
Just recently we saw a mass exodus of health care workers in Virginia, and we will no doubt begin to see this across The United States.
Today we are witnessing a protest in Staten Island New York, where health care workers have gathered to burn their scrubs in protest of left-wing driven vaccine mandates.
This is only the beginning:

The Liberty Daily captured the protests:
The New York vaccine mandates, aka Medical Tyranny, has hit the healthcare industry hard. Those who have been allowed to stay by decree of the authoritarian government are struggling to keep hospitals running. Those who have been shafted from their careers after being called “heroes” last year are fighting back.
At a protest yesterday, a group of medical professionals burned their scrubs while singing “Glory, Glory Hallelujah.” It was both inspiring and sad knowing the uphill battle they face.
Health care workers gather to burn their scrubs in protest of liberal-communist medical tyranny. Scrubs are the least of things we need to burn ladies and gentlemen. https://t.co/Yjpr8ADk1i#vaccine #DoNotComply #massnoncompliance

News Wars provided even more coverage:
“Each time they hit us harder, we hit them harder. We let them know that we’re for real,” he added before setting the scrub pile on fire.
Other healthcare workers carrying signs like “Unmask the truth” and “Nurses Are Not Replaceable” began singing “Battle Hymn of the Republic” as the pile burned.
According to officials, 16% of hospital workers in the state – about 83,000 people – have refused to take the COVID shot.
