First Liberty filed a class action lawsuit representing 35 unnamed US Navy SEALs this week against defendants Joe Biden, Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin, the Department of State, and the Secretary of the Navy Carolos Del Toro. This lawsuit alleges that Biden directed the Department of Defense to vaccinate all service members, even those who file religious exemptions.

Those who refuse to take the vaccine are being intimidated into submission by the military. When Navy SEALs attempt to file for religious exemptions, they are threatened with demotions, pay cuts, a ban on travel, and a variety of other punishments. The lead attorney for First Liberty, Mike Berry, told Fox News the following:

“Remove a SEAL from special warfare, reduce his salary, and force him to repay his training is purely vindictive and punitive. And it’s illegal. They have nothing to do with a virus.”

Despite what we heard originally about COVID-19, that we could go back to normal once herd immunity was reached, the Biden administration expects complete compliance. 96.4% of the Navy is currently vaccinated.


The Mayo clinic defines herd immunity as a large portion of a community becoming resistant to a virus. Further, they state that “herd immunity also can be reached when enough people have been vaccinated”. Knowing this, why must the Navy force those who cite religious exemptions to get a vaccine when herd immunity has already been reached? Is 96.4% vaccination not enough for herd immunity?

Berry has an answer to this question. He believes that the Biden administration’s goal is not increased immunity and safety, but a purposeful “ideological purge” of military members that dare defy democrats.

The most important takeaway is this: COVID-19 health regulations are not constructed with health in mind. Instead, they are carefully concocted to enforce compliance and test how much power can be taken from the people and inherited by the government.

Since herd immunity has already been reached among the Navy, the only reason to discharge servicemembers is due to the belief that those individuals do not align with Biden’s agenda. This will in turn create a military presence that is only loyal to one party, the democrats.


Jim Hanson, a veteran of the U.S. Army Special Forces, recently appeared on Fox News and perfectly described the situation. Hanson stated:

“I think this is an example of them using the military again as a social engineering laboratory and as a medical experimentation laboratory.. We’ve got a military that right now is still far too focused on woke issues. They are having pride marches and pronoun parties as opposed to training the troops.”

What the Biden administration has done to the military in such a short period of time is an abomination. It has become more than obvious that Biden completely disregards the U.S. constitution and first amendment rights to religious freedom, even for the heroes of our society.
