‘General Hospital’ Actor Fired for Refusing COVID-19 Jab Sues Disney Alleging Religious Discrimination
Former “General Hospital” actor Ingo Rademacher is suing Disney alleging religious discrimination after being fired for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine.
Rademacher played Jasper “Jax” Jacks for close to 25 years on “General Hospital” before being sacked last month for refusing the experimental jab. Lawyer John W. Howard is representing Rademacher in the case. They allege that Rademacher was denied a religious exemption before being terminated.
“I am entitled to a religious exemption against mandatory vaccination for COVID-19 on the basis of my deeply and sincerely held moral belief that my body is endowed by my creator with natural processes to protect me and that its natural integrity cannot ethically be violated by the administration of artificially created copies of genetic material, foreign to nature and experimental,” Rademacher wrote to human resources in October before his firing by Disney.
Rademacher also claims he was grilled by a Disney HR representative over his beliefs, in what he called a “cross-examination” of sorts. This is the type of harassment and coercion that individuals who follow their conscience receive in modern-day America.
“This should not be a political issue,” Rademacher’s lawsuit against Disney states. “There is no need for everybody to get the COVID-19 shot, even if the president demands it.”
Big League Politics has reported on how Disney is one of the corporations most enthusiastically enforcing vaccine mandates, which has prompted resistance from workers:
“One phenomenon catching steam recently has been the initiation of medical tyranny by large private companies in addition to government mandates, something which has taken many conservatives a lot of time to wrap their heads around. One of the most recent and high-profile examples of this burgeoning private sector medical tyranny comes from what is supposedly “The Most Magical Place on Earth”, Disney.
According to The Epoch Times, some loyal employees of Disney have chosen to not sit idly by as the mandate takes force. Florida resident and Disney World restaurant server Nick Caturano is determined to keep his job at Orlando attraction without giving up his medical autonomy. This was not his initial intention, however. Caturano admitted this much to The Epoch Times, saying “I was originally going to walk away from it and move on,” before changing his mind, adding that “[Now], I just feel a sense of responsibility to stand up and fight.”.
Caturano continued to affirm his determination, saying that “This is about everybody. It’s about the whole country right now,” he said, and if people don’t stand up now, he said, “they won’t have another chance, and I think they’re going to regret it.”. Unsurprisingly, Disney has declined to even respond to comment requests.
Ironically, Caturano is a member of a union that is supposed to protect the interests of its members. Unfortunately for Caturano, this was not the case here. “We knew the union wasn’t going to fight it,” Caturano said. “They were going to hammer out the medical and religious exemptions. The union feels they have the right to do what they want.”. The Memorandum of Understanding between Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S. and the Services Trades Council Union that was finalized on August 23rd does supposedly allow for medical exemptions as well as “sincerely held religious belief, practice or observance,”. How long these exemptions will remain unadulterated remains to be seen.
Caturano is a strong believer in freedom of choice and does not believe private companies have a legal right to force their employees to take shots they do not consent to, especially if there are medical alternatives available.“
More people need to stand against corporate vaccine tyranny. The mandates are no less onerous when enforced by a corporate monopoly than when they are enforced by big government.
