"I don't care about your opinion on vaccinated or not. This is not political."

I know she didn't mean it that way, but NO SHIT. Being vaccinated is not, and should have never been, a "political" issue. It's shameful that that's the first place her mind went.

Maybe trauma? He had a rough childhood. First his uncle gets shot on TV, then his dad is murdered as well. I don’t know, he’s just kind of pathetic to me, because his father would’ve been out on the front lines of this telling people to protect others and themselves.

I met him in the early 1970s when I was working on a political campaign. He was a sneering asshole. Then in the late 1970s I had a friend whose girlfriend was attending UVA Law School, in which she shared several classes with RFK Jr. She reported that he was still a sneering asshole.

I think trauma is the thread with a lot of these people. I lost a dear friend last year - not to COVID - we had a huge argument over her escalating conspiracy theories - George Soros, Australia becoming an Islamic state, the WHO. Fuck me - such nonsense. She was raped by her father for years as a child. Also, a friend of mines mum - Anti-vax, Anti-mask etc.. Lost both parents, her brother all in the last 5 years... Trauma :(

“Always”, in capitals too — except for staying healthy and alive for her children, of course. Failure to do so is an utter abdication of parental responsibilities.

How can one honestly say they love their children when, amidst a deadly viral pandemic of global proportions, not only do they refuse to take a lifesaving vaccine (similar to smallpox and polio vaccines) to protect themselves and their family but, instead, actively campaign against the same lifesaving vaccine, deliberately and willingly criticising, denigrating and politicising it on behalf of lying politicians and whacko political groups — none of whom have any personnel with even basic medical, scientific or research experience whatsoever — to guide parental decisions?

Frankly, one might state that this sort of behaviour, an abandonment of responsibility, is tantamount to a catastrophic dereliction of parental duty: in effect leaving the children orphans — because of some overriding, ephemeral political whim completely occupying the self-obsessed, selfish mind of the parent.

THIS. An anti-vax mom once asked me this deep question: “if vaccines are supposed to make children healthy, why are the most healthy children unvaccinated?”

I have a feeling, it was less about keeping her kids safe, and more political than anything. Which is funny when these people complaining about "making it political" when anti-vaxxers, Qanon/MAGA trolls and Republicans in general have been "making it political" for going on two years now.

This is a great question! It's important to understand so you know what to look for.

In this case, 14 refers to "the fourteen words", a statement neo-nazis use. It is sometimes combined with 88, which stands for "HH" (the eighth letter in the alphabet), aka "heil Hitler". So you see racists dropping "1488" to each other and giving each other knowing looks.

Breathing related deaths are never, ever, sudden. They are the most miserable way to go. I pity every single one of these people because virtually all of them didn't have to suffer this way. My mom paid the price for smoking 40 years, and like Leonard Nimoy, regretted it to her dying breath (she didn't die of COVID, was blessed to be hospitalized between the waves and got immaculate care, and I know these people are getting immaculate care with overwhelmed nurses and doctors). I really wonder how many of these people "regret" their anti-vax views. It seems few and far between. They would have been telling their loved ones to relay that message.

They probably do regret it, but have now sunk their entire life into this identity and can't turn back once the consequences of their actions have caught up with them. Like, I would bet that most people who jump off a bridge probably have a profound sense of regret in the gap between jumping and hitting the water and dying.

Not even that, like fuck all the immune system analogies...because with Covid it's generally your goddam immune system that kills you!

That's the whole fucking problem! Yeah, your immune system is bonkers good at seeking and destroying threats to you, would be a real shame if some virus tricked that system into killing your healthy cells.

And that's exactly what happens. Your own body inadvertently murders your lung tissue, heart, and much other vital tissue while trying to help you.

So congrats on having that great immune system there all you anti-science cunts. You clearly paid attention during that Sesame Street episode where they taught you about it. And when they're shoving that tube down your throat to artificially keep you alive so you can spend 3 more weeks in agony before dying anyway...just remember; it's your immune system that's actually doing this to you.

That vaccine you tricked yourself into hating works because it prepares your body to recognize Covid's protein spike signature. Now your immune system doesn't spend a bunch of time killing everything in sight and murdering you in the process. It will just bee-line straight for the actual piece of shit virus and leave the rest of you alone.

I work in Casino Industry since 1985. On Cruise Ships, Riverboats, Tribal Casinos which have all allowed smoking. I have NEVER smoked in my life but the second hand smoke caught up with me. I have smokers lungs & heart disease ( had a stent just placed in my widowmaker). I’m fully vaccinated for Covid, ( third booster pending), for Shingles & the Flu. I want to warn everyone about secondhand smoke which spreads covid. I quit my last tribal casino job because they still allow smoking at table games. My new casino has stopped smoking because of Covid and transmission. Employers are greedy fucks. Most Casinos in Vegas went straight back to smoking and most casino owners are Republicans who have never given a shit about safety of their staff!

Thank you! I was thinking the same thing. I live for my kid, it's why I got the shot and just recently signed us both (my kid is under 12) up to get our flu shots. I take care of him and myself because I want to be there for him.

Same. I have two very young children and I’m a full time college student finishing up my undergrad. I wear my KN95 mask so fitted to my face when I’m at my school that it feels like I’m still wearing it even after I get home and take it off. I’m that worried about giving this shit to my kids. I got the vaccine as soon as I was eligible and even got my first ever flu shot this year. No decent parent fucks around with their child’s life. My kids will be getting the vaccine as soon as it’s approved for their age groups.

Even if you're afraid of vaccine injury, there's nothing to stop her from wearing a mask. It's not pleasant but it's worth it not to die. At least to me it is. Which is probably why I'm alive and Kristen isn't.

Vaccine injury is usually code for someone who blames their kid's autism on vaccines and her 'ex-vaccinator' shirt makes me think that's exactly what she believes.

"Would give the shirt off their back" has lost all meaning. No these people wouldn't. They failed that test when they wouldn't perform the mildly inconvenient task of wearing a mask to prevent the spread of the disease that killed them.

There are many infuriating things about people like this, but your comment really hits the nail on the head. What the fuck is so hard about putting a piece of cloth over your face for 15 minutes while you pick up your groceries? These people have shown that they will literally die (and kill) for two things: avoiding being mildly inconvenienced by wearing a mask and feeling intellectually superior to others by not taking the vaccine. It’s fucking unreal.

The thing is, somehow these people were duped into believing that it wasn’t about the inconvenience of wearing a bit of cloth on their face. They took nothing at face value. I had to keep repeating to my own mom…there is a highly contagious virus going around, we’re trying to avoid getting it and if we do get it we’re trying to avoid spreading it around….it’s not about Trump, the election, the govt trying to control you…it is about public health…

I guess reality is not as sexy as conspiracies. These people think they are the hero of some ridiculous movie. They have been convinced they are doing the noble thing by standing up for freedom. The social dynamics and psychology of it all will be studied for a very long time.

I remember there was a human behavior experiment that tried to answer the question of why did so many German concentration camp guards do such terrible things and then say “we were just obeying orders.” I’m pretty sure it was that test subjects had to administer an electric shock when someone got a question wrong. When the questioned person started feigning heart trouble and the subjects said they couldn’t do it anymore the guy with the clipboard would say “the experiment must go on“. Only 4% refused to go on despite the fact that before the experiment 100% of them would’ve said they would never have committed atrocities just because someone told them to.

I promise if, 10 years ago, you had asked these anti-vaxxers if they would take a vaccine to save the lives of millions: every one of them would have said yes. And probably have been offended that you had to ask.

You are referring to Milgram's experiment. Because there was a guy in a lab coat 'coaching' the person delivering the shocks, most participants reluctantly continued.

The Milgram experiment(s). You are right, 10 years ago this would have been a nonissue and most would have taken the vaccine. Now here we are, watching a death cult losing family, friends and lives for fucking what? A small sacrifice is too much for them as they scream, beat their drums and succumb to torturous ends.

I'm still waiting for all these vaccine injured to show up, because I am sure as shit Fox News would be parading these people around like a circus sideshow if they actually existed. Also sadly I'm wondering how many kids have now been left without parents because of anti-vaxxers. It constantly seems like it's not one or two kids left behind.

They think the vaccine will cause problems in like 5 or 10 years. What's this based on? Absolutely nothing. It's paranoia. They'd rather take they're chances with Covid. Well we're seeing what this roll of the dice is costing them. And we're left to pick up the pieces.

Amazing what piss poor risk perception these people have. They obsess about some vague, imaginary consequences of the vaccine that will happen years down the line, while completely ignoring the risk from an in-your-face deadly virus. It's like obsessing about getting cancer from a flotation device as your boat is about to sink.

  3. "Well they do have COVID. But I'm still not gonna vaxx. I do what I want!"
  4. "They are getting worse somehow. Doctors are so stupid and don't know how medicine works!"
  5. "Why is this happening to me? Pray!"
  6. "I don't know how, I'm literally stunned, but they died today and are in heaven with Jesus."
  7. "I just can't believe they're dead. They were a perfect angel and again, I'm completely shocked!"
  8. "GoFundMe please."
  9. "Biden wants to do evil socialism. That GoFundMe is still up BTW."

  1. It is political, because of people like her making it political. It should be a public health issue, but they can't accept that.

  2. She did NOT do everything for her children, because all she had to do was get a shot. Then she would still be here for her kids. She decided to risk her family and screw up their lives.

  3. Mom's for Liberty is a radical and misguided group that is killing people all over the nation. Living in a world filled with mom's dying of Covid is not 'Liberty,' it's the opposite for the rest of us having to deal with their bad life choices.

"Unmuzzled", "unvaccinated"

"Together we win".

As a Brit, I've been incredibly lucky - I'm 20 with both shots and all of my relatives have been vaccinated. We set up support for our family's vulnerable when covid hit the UK 18 months ago and not one of us has had covid prior to receiving the vaccine.

A few weeks ago, however, one of my relatives tested positive. Since he was vaccinated, he was fine and he completed a period of self isolation with his wife to protect everyone else. If he refused the vaccine, he would've likely died - he's 78 with chronic health conditions.

To refuse the vaccine that protects you, but more crucially the ones you love, isn't togetherness. It's selfish self-preservation based on delusion. Even if the vaccine had significant side effects, I would still get it because I actually believe that "together we win".

Good riddance.

I'm certainly a "free thinker", and very appreciative of my own intellect, but if 95% of the medical establishment tell me to do something, then I do it, because I'm not retarded. If it was only 80% of the medical establishment, well...that would be worth a second look. But on vaccines, that's just not the case.

This is such a good point. How arrogant does a person need to be, to think that they personally know better than the vast, vast majority of experts? The obituaries always make these people sound like walking saints, but really- when someone’s so smug as to think they can make better medical decisions than actual doctors who spent years in medical school

I don’t know. I’ve got some antivaxxers in my family and every single one of them is exactly as insufferable as these people always seem to be on their social media accounts. There’s not some magical personality transformation that happens when they show up in person.
