Fact Check: Video Does NOT Show 'Joe Biden's Green Shirt Vaccine Pushing Shock Troops' Confronted Not About Vax

Does a video show "Joe Biden's green shirt vaccine pushing shock troops" being confronted on camera? No, that's not true. The video has nothing to do with the COVID-19 vaccine. The video shows workers from a construction company and is labeled "Paramount Builders Illegal Solicitors." They are not "troops" attempting to "push" a COVID-19 vaccine to people by going door-to-door.

The claim appeared as a video published on broadcaster Alex Jones' "Banned.Video" Bitchute.com account on July 12, 2021, titled "VIDEO: Joe Biden's Green Shirt Vaccine Pushing Shock Troops Confronted" (archived here) which opened:

The people in the video are not delivering a COVID-19 vaccine or information about vaccines. The video on Bitchute opens with a clip of Joe Biden talking about going door-to-door in communities to offer the COVID-19 vaccine. He made the remarks on July 6, 2021, at the White House, which are posted on the website as, "Remarks by President Biden on the COVID-19 Response and the Vaccination Program":

Now we need to go to community by community, neighborhood by neighborhood, and oftentimes, door to door -- literally knocking on doors -- to get help to the remaining people protected from the virus."

The Bitchute post then includes a two-minute video posted by a man named Lee Beasley on TikTok on July 10, 2021, and is titled, "Paramount Builders Illegal Solicitors."

The man on the video claims there is a sign posted in the neighborhood prohibiting solicitation and says the group is defying that order. That is all that is discussed on the video. There is no mention of "pushing" a COVID-19 vaccine anywhere on the video nor do the solicitors in the video say they are promoting COVID-19 vaccination.

Beasley posted a second video on TikTok on July 11, 2021, titled, "Solicitor conclusion," and he shares more details about his confrontation with employees and a manager from Paramount Builders Inc. in Jacksonville, Florida. According to the Paramount Builders Inc. website, their address matches the business card he posted in the video.

Steve Pazzella, VP of marketing for Paramount Builders Inc., told Lead Stories via telephone on July 13, 2021, that the incident took place in March. He explained what the company does and what the people on the video were doing, which had nothing to do with COVID-19 vaccines.

Our employees knock on doors and talk to local homeowners to see if they would like to get an estimate for improving their homes."


Beasley never mentions the COVID-19 vaccine and the people are not "pushing" the COVID-19 vaccine anywhere in the video.

The man claims on the video a cop was flagged down near the property during the confrontation. Lead Stories has reached out to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Department, and the woman mentioned as a manager in the video and will update this fact check when a response is received.
