Quote
Facebook has "insidious conflicts with the pharmaceutical industry and its captive health agencies," CHD claimed in a press release. "Facebook currently censors Children’s Health Defense’s page, targeting its purge against factual information about vaccines, 5G and public health agencies."

Quote
Robert F. Kennedy Jr, through CHD and an affiliated group called the World Mercury Project, was responsible for more than half of anti-vaccine advertisements on Facebook when they were permitted, researchers found last year. That ended in 2019 amid a measles outbreak, when Facebook updated its policies following pressure from the Centers for Disease Control and lawmakers.

Ignorant people are against vaccines because they haven't seen the effects of diseases that vaccines prevent because vaccines work so well.   Polio, measles, mumps, whooping cough, tetanus, diphtheria, etc. are all horrible diseases that kill, but the odds are that you have never even known someone who had any of them unless the person is so old that they had the disease before the vaccine was available.  I don't even have any pity left for anti-vaxxers because of the risk of harm to others who aren't stupid.

These people suing Facebook don't understand what censorship is, anyway.  Same for people yelling about their imaginary right to not wear a face mask on private property.  Dumb, dumb, dumb.

We can inform these topics by looking at how airport security works:  Screening/inspection/etc. by airport security is not mandatory--people can refuse it.  But if someone does, they're not allowed into the gate area.

We can extend that concept to vaccination and mask-wearing:  They're not mandatory, but if someone refuses, s/he cannot have contact with other people.  That might not be appealing, though, as others won't be able to admire one's high-fashion tinfoil hat.

This pinhead was stupid enough to sue a bar because they refused to serve him a third round and kicked him out because he was wearing a MAGA Dunce Cap.  He tried to claim it was an expression of his "spiritual belief".

I think his lawyer may have been in a SketchySex video?

I'm not sure wearing a political cap is an expression of "spiritual belief," but ordering a third round suggests a belief in spirits (although judging from the photos, he wanted a cheap beer).

I love watching the hate being spewed b liberals. 

I am normally totally pro-vaccines because they are well done with years/decades of testing.

BTW, the WHO and man others are saying that a vaccine won't end COVID-19.
