“To me, it wasn’t [a difficult decision] at all. I’d be very cowardly if I didn’t,” he added.

He told Carlson that his career is insignificant and sacrificing that career means little if “our freedoms are taken away.”

“This is all happening because we’re letting it happen,” he said, warning that “It doesn’t matter who you are, they’ll come after you… they’re relentless.”

Marsden said he believes that, if more people take a stand against those forcing the mandates on others, the rules would come to a halt.

This isn’t just about this country, it’s about the whole world. I know because I saw it. I know because I was there dreaming of coming here. I’m that guy.

“I got offered a job… and they said there was still a requirement that you had to be vaccinated. I informed them that I was not vaccinated, and I submitted a religious exemption, and it was, of course, dismissed and that’s that,” he said.

“I didn’t become a citizen of this country to have my First Amendment rights and my other rights [taken away]… for me to have to worry about having to lie about something like having a vaccine, I think it’s an invasion of privacy. I don’t think it’s right,” he added.

Marsden also told Carlson that there has to be a point when people say “enough” to facilitate change.
