Whether on the eXXpress website or on social media: Seldom has a statement garnered as many reader reactions as the latest proposal from Univ. Prof. DDr. Heinz Mayer regarding the handling of unvaccinated people – the eXXpress reported on Saturday. The constitutional lawyer called for particularly drastic measures for those who refuse to be vaccinated and who evade the obligation to vaccinate: “Only with fines, that will not be enough. It will then also need further consequences. Most likely that would be forced isolation. ” All eXXpress readers reacted indignantly. However, individual voices criticize the refusal of vaccination critics even more sharply.
Some summed it up briefly: “Incredibly such a statement in Austria”, “Without further comment! I can only say, I can’t believe it ”,“ I am speechless ”,“ Such thoughts are dangerous to fire ”,“ Such a derailment is unbelievable! ”. One reader speculates: “Had Kickl, Strache, Hofer ever suggested something like this out loud … there would have been a fire on the roof.” Some try it with sarcasm: “According to the constitution of the Democratic Republic of North Korea, everything is safe, easy and effective.” Or: “You have to wag your fear club a bit and of course the smell of the totalitarian must not be missing. But wait, what if everything is really meant seriously? “
Others take it less easily: “I am now really scared of these increasingly visible patterns.” Who else: “You only need ‘experts’ who say that this or that is the only means to master a ‘dramatic situation’. Other ‘experts’ who do not think so are hidden in the media and politically stigmatized, regardless of the means, the main thing is that the effect is achieved. ” One wonders whether the migrants, “who cross the borders illegally and shout ‘asylum’ every day”, are also “vaccinated or currently 2G tested”.
A reader who is explicitly not against vaccination writes: “Of course I am vaccinated. But then it makes my hair stand up: Those who don’t get vaccinated are locked away. Preventive custody for endangered parties: Never! “
However, some readers are now annoyed about those who still do not want to be vaccinated: “The patience with the stupidity of a rather small group is amazing. I have never been able to understand the thoughts of people refusing to be vaccinated, ”writes one reader. Another takes it even further: “Forced isolation is certainly a tried and tested means. I would also be in favor of revoking my citizenship. ” Some hope that the vaccination requirement could increase the vaccination rate: “France achieves vaccination success with pressure: Since the government has increased the pressure on unvaccinated people, more French people are vaccinated again.”
