The Libertarian Party of Kentucky has compared the new vaccination passport programs around the U.S. to the indicators Nazis used to identify Jews during the Holocaust.

The Biden administration is working on a vaccine-passport program that would allow people to prove that they had been inoculated against the disease before entering venues that have been closed during the pandemic.

But the Kentucky branch of the political party that promotes civil liberties and non-interventionism has criticized the scheme.

Are the vaccine passports going to be yellow, shaped like a star, and sewn on our clothes?

While it is understandable people are upset by such “passports” this type of messaging is in extremely poor taste. Yall can make an argument about bad policy without minimizing actual horror 🙁

It tweeted: “Are the vaccine passports going to be yellow, shaped like a star, and sewn on our clothes?” in a reference which compared the program to the yellow stars that were sewn on the clothes of Jewish people to identify them during World War Two.

The tweet prompted criticism from another branch of the same political party. The Libertarian Party of Bexar County, in Texas, wrote: “While it is understandable people are upset by such ‘passports’ this type of messaging is in extremely poor taste.

“Yall can make an argument about bad policy without minimizing actual horror,” it added.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
