How low can these anti-vaxxers go? There seems to be no limit.

Anti-vaxxers are wearing Yellow Stars of David to protest coronavirus vaccines: report

Anti-vaccine protesters likening themselves to Jews during the holocaust were harshly criticized on Saturday.

Nazis required Jews to wear yellow Jewish stars and other holocaust badges to the lands they controlled during World War II.

Twitter user Chloe Adelstone posted a picture of a man in the United Kingdom misappropriating the symbol. She said, "I shouted at them and they told me I was a Nazi for wearing a mask."






The Auschwitz Memorial blasted the anti-vaxx activists.

"Instrumentalization of the tragedy of Jews who suffered, were humiliated, marked with a yellow star, and finally isolated in ghettos and murdered during the Holocaust, in order to argue against vaccination that saves human lives is a sad symptom of moral and intellectual decline," the museum wrote.

Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, anti-vaccine protesters were misappropriating the symbol.

"In recent months, some anti-vaccine activists (known as anti-vaxxers) have appropriated the yellow Star of David badge, which some European Jews were required to wear during the Holocaust, to symbolize their 'persecution' at the hands of government vaccine rules," the Anti-Defamation League reported in April of 2019. "The stars, emblazoned with the stylized words 'No Vax,' are showing up on social media, especially on Facebook, and at anti-vaccine events. This is a hugely inappropriate use of this enduring symbol of the persecution of Jews by the Nazis during World War II and minimizes and trivializes the experiences of the survivors and victims of the Holocaust."

2. They missed the lesson of the Holocaust, and at the same time trivialized the Holocaust.

4. Looking on the bright side of it:

They've identified themselves as hideously ignorant, offensive, and stupid. Could be a time saver for the rest of us.

13. Maybe they prefer to have a Scarlet C imprinted on their foreheads

like the Scarlet Letter A. We need to shame THEM big time. Turn it around and make them the center of negative attention. We need to be more vocal and call them out since they are the ones on the wrong side of the argument/science. We should make them feel like shit for being so selfish.

14. Ignorant, hateful bastards. They should be forced to watch films of the liberation of the death

camps just like the those who lived around the camps and had to know what was happening were forced by the Allied forces to walk through the camps to witness the carnage.

16. The right wing white supremacist

Are not limited to the US. They truly feel they are the most victimized folks in the history of humanity. Even the Jewish folks of 1940s Europe had it easy compared to the poor victimized me.

Please allow me a few minutes to puke 🤮 in disgust.

22. How low can they go?

Wanting to burn it all down
And destroy the entire world
To help self fulfill
The End Times

For Imaginary Sky Daddy
And imaginary afterlife eternal
Via the God Delusion

That's what this all
Comes down to

Is that low enough for ya?

24. This is so incredibly offensive. I. Can't. Even.

While I kind of like the idea of the covidiots wearing an identifying label as someone commented, this is a HUGE, gigantic, nauseating slap in the face to all Jews, especially holocaust survivors and their families, as well as all if those who lost family members in the holocaust (which would be most Ashkenazi Jews, if I'm not mistaken).

Go ahead and wear a sign if you want to, covidiots. You want to make my life easier by showing me which knuckleheads to give a wide berth to? Knock yourselves out. But for the love of all that's good and decent, PLEASE find a way to do it without making a mockery of the deaths of millions of people and the profound suffering of countless millions more.

God, this REALLY UPSETS me. I'm mad enough to chew nails! AAARRGGHH.
