Lil' Coffee Nerves gets his second shot tonight. Here's hoping the only angry screaming is when I deny him one of those animated Snoopy dolls that sings "Feliz Navidad," because even Daddy's liver can only take so much.

"They told me I ... was murdering my son, I was committing genocide, stuff like that. And then, just misinformation about the vaccine itself," she said

Just reply back, "Oh that reminds me! I need to go get my abortion, too." Then boop your current kid on the nose with a smile and be like, "Don't want any competition with my little angel, here! No, we can't afford that!" And continue walking.

Sounds like the mentally ill are demanding more than just a pass.  They are demanding treatment and foolishly believe it will not be behind bars.

So, just out of curiosity....if an "interested bystander" happened to whip out a can of bear spray and hose down the antivaxxers, what kind of charges would they be facing and would they get a jury trial?

My son gets his second on Monday. For the first, he was the only kid there that wasn't crying. The mother before us had to drag her older son back to the chair after her younger one started bawling from his shot. For his stoicism, my boy got a bag of Doritos and a Reece's. Totally worth it.

However, we didn't understand why they (Walgreens) did it out in front of everyone behind a token curtain that only blocked one side, when they have a room specifically for things like this. It was weird.

Part of me wants to hear the logic behind it, and another part is suppressing the urge to treat them like zombies.  Then again, it's no different from the assholes protesting outside of Planned Parenthood harassing people just trying to get medical care that isn't even remotely associated with abortion most of the time.

First amendment rights don't include actively harassing families and their children.

The police could do something about this with disturbing the peace and many anti-harassment laws on the books but refuse to do anything.

Because of this refusal this will eventually end with physical violence. I know if someone was calling me a murder and a child killer in front of my kids for hours I might just prove that first part to them and my child.

Sounds like it's a vaccine site that caters to children, they already had a security guard and the security guard was on their break when this happened.

In Ontario you're generally allowed to make your own medical choices from around the age of 12 as long as you can demonstrate that you understand what you're agreeing to.

If I was running things there would be a major media campaign to let all the young'ens know that they don't need their parents permission to get the vaccine or any other medical issues addressed.

Your mommy and daddy may be plague rats but that doesn't mean you have to be as well.

The very fact that we needed guards at a vaccination clinic puts us on part with the worst parts of war torn Africa.

I used to wonder why local populations would reject or destroy medical help. For them it was ignorance due to inability to access information.

Our local assholes that reject and want to destroy are that way because they are willfully ignorant assholes so I don't give them any leeway compared to the people in Africa.

Yeah, this. Obviously they are idiots, but a parent can make lemonade out of lemons here. Its a mistake to try and shelter your kid from this sort of thing, because he is going to have to deal with idiots all his life.

It's a golden opportunity to point these people out as an example of what can happen when you turn your brain off to critical thought. Look at them, son. Even though they're adults, they're willing to make fools out of themselves like this. In front of kids, no less, kids who know better than they do.

There was a woman (unvaccinated) last week that died at home because she thought she wasn't supposed to go to the hospital for COVID.

The husband has it too and was so sick he couldn't even perform CPR on her after he called 911. Their kids had been looking after themselves for quite a few days because their parents were so wrecked.

So at least one antivaxer saved the taxpayers the cost of an ICU stay.

The problem is: they KNOW that they are correct and we're all a bunch of rubes. That's what makes them dangerous. I imagine that one of them will actually attack a vaccine clinic before too long because of reasons.

Because acknowledging COVID would show disloyalty to JesusTrump and America. And the point of being a cuckservative is to bully, terrorize, and eventually slaughter anyone who isn't Just Like You as a form of virtue signaling. Wait until November 2024 for the slaughter part to really kick into high gear.

I am sure this is next.

Like the planned parenthood shooters and bombers are a function of the decades long calls for someone to do something. They are a function of the movement that can quickly be denied when they finally snap, but the movement knows they are pushing people to snap because those loose cannons are useful terror tools against their opponents.

Just like what they have been doing at school board meetings, I have been holding my breath waiting for the first school board shooting or vaccine clinic being burned down/bombed.

We really need to bring back sanitariums and these people need to be forced into 72 hour psyche holds to prove they can function in society and reality.

I was going to point out that these are Canadian assholes, but it probably checks out.

At the very least our Qs are more or less contained to the PPC for now. Hopefully, they'll gather steam and split the vote on the right enough to shut the Cons out for a few more cycles.

gilgigamesh: I think as they start to feel hemmed in, by popular opinion, or reality, or both, violence will be inevitable.


In a way.

What I have been seeing is this.

They are 3rd grade bullies. They have been using threats of violence against us to get what they want.

They shout down people. People stopped listening, so they started carrying guns and talking about how many they could kill.

Now with covid those guns mean shiat. What is you gunning down a couple people when Covid already took out 3 of mine?

So now they are flailing, they want to escalate but they are too soft to actually do anything. That is why these events are so rare. They are victim bullies and only the truly crazy ones act out in the ways the others talk about.

The Texas(from Alaska, but this fits here so well) term, They are all hat and no cattle.

They want to intimidate, they want to say their daddy can beat up yours, that is why the overwhelming majority of them are christians and use god as a bludgeon.

With a pandemic raging it has left them look like they toothless assholes they have always been and the one thing they cannot stand is people not listening to them so they are stomping their feet harder.

If the police started to go in and arrest this people and charge them with harassment and detaining them, put them in jail a day or so, you would see half the people at the next rally and eventually they would dwindle because real world consequences is something these bullies have never had to put up with.

TL,DR: These entitled pricks will stop harassing people once the police arrest them. They are all talk and when rubber hits the road their numbers will be like the Dildoians, everyone on twitter backing you up, but all you got in smash mouth, tarp guy, and a truck bed full of dildos.

If only article was about the USA, your comment would apply.

Canada's actually a lot less "unfettered free speech" and a bit more "responsible free speech".

"It is already a criminal offence to threaten and intimidate people and police have the power to break up demonstrations," - Vic Fedeli, an elected Member of Provincial Parliament quoted in the article.

So I see the Canadian police are doing as much to nip this in the bud as their American counterparts.

Point still stands. Enforcing those laws and these people getting slapped with jailtime or fines would stop this shiat right quick.

dickrickulous: That won't last. OPP be right up their butt.


I once had a municipal cop tell me derisively "the OPP would ticket their own mothers".  Like that's a bad thing?

The OPP are the ones who are sometimes hours away from backup if they're working in the backwoods.  The OPP are the ones the municipal cops go to for help when they can't handle things on their own.  I'm sure they have their own issues, but I'd take an interaction with an OPPer over a municipal cop any day given the choice.

On the other hand... they don't exactly have the ability to air drop a swarm of cops on short notice to problems like this, so I'm not sure they're going to quickly handle anything that doesn't come with a lot of warning first.  It'd be nice to see vaccination clinics set up some high quality cameras to help the cops track these assholes down later, though.

I'm honestly not sure whether to be comforted by the knowledge that crazies are sprouting like mold in other countries too, not just the USA.

If it weren't for the serious ethical issues and absolute guarantee of abuse, I'd be in favor of an insane idiot test for the general public so we could identify the most damaged people and get them into long-term care. Or the sun.

This was in North Bay, Ontario in Canada, not the US.  These chuckleheads are considered to be a far right political fringe in Canada and the general public is on the whole pretty disgusted by them.  Sadly, we do indeed have some of these nutters and most are drinking deeply from the Kool-Aid of American right wing media (especially social media).

The cops should have been on site dealing with these nutters and charging them with disturbing the peace or harassment.  Same as they do with arseholes who show up outside abortion clinics to harass patients.  Take them in and don't let them intimidate medical patients.  The real story is the cops failing to do their job.
