Anti-vaxxers and the whole trumpkin crowd should be viewed the same way as child molesters. There is No good child molester even if they did something useful once. Both use lies and require club members to have non fact beliefs and believe only club members can know the truth.
Anti-vaxxer = child molester

The worst is that they refuse the mRNA vaccines as they don't see it as a "Real Vaccine" yet, they want unlimited to experimental drugs are monoclonals antibodies and the approved antiviral drugs.

These prescription drugs are a LOT more dangerous for your health than vaccines since they need to be taken every day and we dont know the long term side effects.

Compare the number of people who die every year from prescription drugs vs vaccines.

They should be treated the same way as child molesters too: sent to prison for their crimes against humanity and registered as criminals for the rest of their lives.

Observation:  There are far more reports of adverse reactions among people who received a vaccine in a geographical area.
(Conspiracy) Theory:  Geographical areas reporting higher rates of adverse reactions are being given sabotaged batches of vaccine.
Probable actual basis for observation:  Geographical areas reporting high rates of adverse reactions are populated by morons and liars claiming the vaccine makes you magnetic because Bobby Sue's third cousin twice-removed/sister-in-law/great aunt got hit by a bus outside the Walgreens immediately after getting their shot.

Let's not argue over semantics.

These are Cipolla's five fundamental laws of stupidity:
1. Always and inevitably, everyone underestimates the number of stupid individuals in circulation.
2. The probability that a certain person (will) be stupid is independent of any other characteristic of that person.
3. A stupid person is a person who causes losses to another person or to a group of persons while himself deriving no gain and even possibly incurring losses.
4. Non-stupid people always underestimate the damaging power of stupid individuals. In particular, non-stupid people constantly forget that at all times and places, and under any circumstances, to deal and/or associate with stupid people always turns out to be a costly mistake.
A stupid person is the most dangerous type of person.

But wtf why didn't I think of this? No I will not go to the site in question but there is no doubt it is ten layers of "one weird trick" ads and phishing and probably installs a crypto miner in your bios. Dang the GoFundMe is probably in the six figures by now.  I need to drink away some integrity soonish or else opportunities like this will be another decade in the making

If the chances of being in a plane crash were as high as catching Covid, your friend would never fly.

If the chances of dying in that plane crash were as high as dying from Covid, your friend would certainly never fly.

That's not fear. That's understanding risk. I am not 'scared' because I am vaccinated and wear my mask. I already had covid one. It sucked, but I was never really in fear of dying. I still can't see out of my right eye, but I have read that goes away...

You know when someone says the 'i refuse live in fear' that they are actually living in fear.

I blame Jenny McCarthy, this coont and this one, too.

In a recent interview with an anti-vax streamer, Paardekooper also suggests that, if people succumb to vaccine mandates, they should run lot numbers through the site before they get jabbed, and demand a different batch if it flags as toxic.

Idiot: I demand to see the lot numbers first!
Shot Giver: Why?
ID: I need to check it against this very reliable web site run by this very reliable person to see if it is toxic.
SG: No
ID: So you won't give the numbers?
SG: No.
ID: Then I am walking out!!!!

You really believe that the chances of dying in that plane crash are as high as the chance of dying after catching COVID?
Make sure you understand what you wrote: You've already broken the odds of being in a plane crash from which you could live and you could die...and you're equating the chance of dying in that crash to the chance of dying from COVID. You either wrote it very wrong or completely do not understand the likelihood of dying if you're involved in an airplane crash.

Pretty sure there's some, what amounts to, high level marketing research team somewhere, dumping and pushing misinformed claims, and outright trolling, just to see how far they can take it before they finally hit the limit and even the dumbest motherfarker on the planet goes "Nope, no way, that can't be true, this is all made up."

So far, they have yet to hit that limit, that's why you get people who "Refuse to take a vaccine because I have no idea what's in it" to lube up a UV snakelight, with Ivermectic, and wash down transgender medication, with a viagria pill with a cup of bleach chaser, you know, for personal safety as an alternative to a vaccine.

It's like if 4chan were hired to do market research.

Either way, he argues that it's likely a nebulous they are using selectively toxic batches to quietly kill off undesirable groups, and to leave others so permanently weakened that they can no longer resist the rise of tyranny and are utterly dependent on pharmaceuticals.

Oh, come on! That's exactly what this author would say, if they were in league with the lizard people, the Illuminate, and reverse trapezoidal vampires.

Had they not phrased it 'chance of dying in that plane crash' it would make perfect sense. Instead, adding the 'that' in indicates that the beginning criteria for determining probability is that the crash has already occurred, and now you must determine your odds of surviving it or not. And comparing the odds of dying when your plane has crashed to the 1.5% chance of dying if you get COVID is ludicrous.

A woman we know in town lost her father in law to covid. He was a rabid anivax, covid is a hoax for government control type dude. So like the guy who hides the zombie bite, he hid symptoms for about a week. Then refused to go to the doctor for another week. Literally to the point where they finally had to haul his dumb ass to the ER. His blood oxygen was so low he was loopy and having hard time staying conscious, he couldn't walk, and he had coughed so hard that he had torn a hole in his esophagus. After a few days in the hospital he died, despite the doctor's best efforts.
If you ask the daughter in law and the rest of the family their biggest regret?

They'll tell you it was taking him to the hospital.

After all, those terrible doctors poisoned him with remdesivir, and that's why he died, certainly not covid. They all say they wish they had kept him at home so he could have recovered "naturally".

They all were some of the loudest protestors against vaccines and extending mask mandates in the local school district. Oh and that daughter in law is a principal at one of the town's elementary schools.
They may not be "idiots" per se, but they are selfish, psychopathic loons
