Raytheon’s Arizona Employees Resisting Vaccine Mandate

October 16, 2021

Raytheon’s employees at their Tucson headquarters are resisting the defense company’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate. On Thursday, a group protested outside of the headquarters.

The protesting employees have created a website to give fellow employees information on their rights, options, and samples of religious exemption letters that were accepted by Raytheon, as well as any updates and legal or legislative news.

All of the accepted religious exemption letters cited an objection to the vaccine’s development using fetal cell lines or tissues, from the perspective of the Catholic or Christian faiths.

Project Veritas, an outlet construed as “far-right” that specializes in investigative and undercover reporting, discovered via internal emails from a whistleblower that Pfizer had attempted to hide the fact that aborted fetal cell lines and tissues were used in the development of mRNA vaccines.

The Raytheon employees also included letters to the FDA from Dr. Patricia Lee and her legal representation, Siri & Glimstad. As an emergency room doctor for over 15 years, Lee attested that she’d never before seen the number of vaccine injuries that she’s witnessed from the COVID-19 vaccine. Lee said these injuries were serious, often fatal: transverse myelitis resulting in quadriplegia (inflammation on both sides of the spinal cord, resulting in paralysis of all four limbs), pneumocystis pneumonia (a type of pneumonia normally only seen with weakened immune systems, usually HIV/AIDS patients or those taking immunosuppressants), multi-system organ failure, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (blood clots in the brain), postpartum hemorrhagic shock and septic shock (life-threatening issues following birth), and disseminated CMV and CMV viremia (flu-like symptoms, most common in immunosuppressed patients).

“It appears statistically improbable that any one physician should witness this many COVID-19 vaccine injuries if the federal health authority claims regarding Covid-19 vaccine safety were accurate,” asserted Lee.

Lee also claimed that many of her colleagues are also reporting similar issues.

According to the employees, Raytheon also pushed up their vaccination deadline. Originally, the deadline was New Year’s Eve. Now, Raytheon wants all employees to comply by December 8.

One Raytheon employee appeared in a radio interview with The Conservative Circus. He explained that Raytheon can’t afford to lose employees over their vaccine mandate. According to the employee, “Ernie,” the company’s Tucson headquarters hosted a job fair recently where around 3,000 people showed up. Out of all those applicants, two or three were offered a job: most didn’t have the qualifications or couldn’t get the security clearances.

“I don’t know what they’re going to do and why they think this is going to be a good thing,” said Ernie.

Ernie also disclosed that no talks about vaccine mandates were ever occurring prior to the Biden Administration. He also revealed that half of the people who recently got sick from COVID-19 were breakthrough cases – they were vaccinated.

Ernie also revealed that Raytheon was asking invasive questions concerning religious exemption requests. These included: how often do you attend worship services? Do you abstain from taking other medicines that were possibly developed from aborted fetal cell lines or tissues?

Early last month, President Joe Biden issued a mandate requiring any companies with over 100 employees to either have their workforce vaccinated or subjected to frequent testing.

This latest mandate from Biden may follow the patterns of another vaccine-related mandate: earlier this year, Biden required all federal employees and contractors to either be vaccinated or subjected to frequent testing. With this latest mandate, Biden dropped the option of frequent testing – now, federal employees must be vaccinated.

Raytheon’s other deadline for employees for disclosure was on Friday. There are approximately 13,000 employees at the Tucson headquarters.
