Dear Anti- Vax folks aka Snowflakes (thanks KO)

If you think you know more about Covid than someone with a Medical Degree
and a graduate degree associated with viruses as well as years of research on viruses, you're an even bigger idiot than we thought

If you think you know more than someone with a graduate science degree related to viruses when you never passed a science course at any level in high school, you're a damned fool If you think your research on anything is equal to experts who have been peer reviewed...in plain English, you deserve to be "Cained".

Your ignorance is not equal to knowledge and that word has meaning

Get a vaccine, get out of the way and STFU!

1. Isaac Asimov said this:

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”

4. I get irked when the anti-vax, anti-mask people argue that the advice keeps changing

Well, OF COURSE IT DOES! Otherwise we wouldn't be learning anything about this virus.

I'm actually COMFORTED that we're learning enough to change strategy as the pandemic continues.

5. Some one needs to tell them that this is normal with NEW viruses

They are incredibly stupid people pretending to be more knowledgeable than people who spend their lives studying these things.
The Slobfather is their king - an ignorant and proud fool.

6. Conservatives like dogma and consistency above all else

It's why they're drawn to evangelical churches where you believe and don't question. Accept simple answers that require very little critical thought.

That's why science is scary to them. The idea that someone could change their mindset based on new data is incomprehensible.

7. Most of them don't even follow the dogma of their own

ten commandments - they are quite selective

9. There is a blog called "The covid blog"

A family member follows. It posts, among other things, horrific pictures of disabled and dead people, supposedly after being vaccinated. It lacks any credibility at all. Yet here we are.


How do I know about this ? My niece. She also find misinformation from her mother’s original country, the Philippines. She doesn’t “research” she blindly looks at gory pictures and decides that is what she’s going to believe.

All this would bother me a lot less, except my mother, who my niece loves and helps, is not vaccinated because of this. She’s 83. It’s only a matter of time before she is exposed and the only reason it hasn’t happened is my niece is not a social person, and I live in a heavily vaccinated area.

I’m an RN in Seattle and I work on a heavily immunocompromised floor, so only had to deal with a few covid patients. (I did the dialysis on number of them though) But we have to deal with the fall-out of critical nursing shortage right now. It’s getting to the point of complete exhaustion.
