Im taking a poll. Who will vote? Doing so after making a simple, non agressive, but openly against statement on anti vaxxers, forthwit i was in essence called a Nazi, along with others.
I am a person who is old enough to remember kids a bit older than me with Polio. I think they are all dead now. The only childhood illness I had was Mumps, and that was before I got all my vacinations for school. While in school I sat next to a girl (I am a Baby Boomer, so when I say "next to", I mean shoulder to shoulder!) I really liked who came down with Chicken Pox. I was touching her for naybe 2 days while she was contagious. Neither I, nor anyone else in the class got sick. Those shots work.
I saw that. You are not the Nazi, imho. Some folks cling doggedly to their delusion and fake facts/junk science. Their sources are skewed to their bias, or are from conspiracy sites. I thought you were polite, considering.
Anti-Vaxxers(among other extremists) would rather win and be ‘right’ than do the best thing for their children and for society. They cite anecdotal evidence as if it’s universal and resort to insults and name-calling. Violence in extremism is a step away. That says it all: you’ve LOST the debate if all you can do is sling verbal abuse.
YOU are evil! And we never went to the moon, the Earth is flat, Jesus is coming, trump is a genius, Obama is a Muslim, Socialism is Communism, Democrats are stupid, Mexico will pay for the wall, there is no such thing as climate change and only Fox news tells the truth! MAGA!*
My sister & BIL are strong anti vaccers. They are anti a lot things. Including exercise and socialize. All around know it alls. Too much TV, too much politics. I can't even think about living like that.
But anyway, I don't even touch the topic around them. I agree with them on some things, but not this
People who delay or don’t get their children vaccinated are a threat to public health. I have worked for an individual who is suffering from Polio related issues that came back decades after the initial infection. People who survived the first infection...before vaccines were available can suffer many debilitating side effects. Many did not survive at all.
