For weeks, supporters of former President Donald Trump have railed against an initiative from the Biden administration to enlist volunteers to go door-to-door in under-vaccinated communities, providing information on how, where, and why to get vaccinated against the pandemic that's killed over 600 thousand Americans.
Though these volunteers are only providing information and answering questions regarding the vaccines, right-wing media personalities have sensationalized the story, absurdly claiming the Biden administration is going door-to-door demanding proof of vaccination or forcing residents to take the vaccines. The effort has been compared to Nazi Brownshirt police by members of Congress like Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia.

Republican York County Commissioner Julie Wheeler said her office has received numerous calls reporting voter intimidation from the group—calls which she's referred to law enforcement.
News of the so-called committee's effort made waves online.
The hypocrisy regarding the GOP's attitude toward door-to-door vaccine information was laid bare.
It's unclear what steps law enforcement plans to take.
