This is a segment from the Anderson Cooper Show on CNN. It is about 10.5 minutes long.
I thought it was important that people see this to see what kind of lies and disinformation people are falling for:
This so-called ‘doctor’ is a not connected to the government. He is using social media to spread his lies.
Down in Florida, Governor DeSantis has hired an anti-vaccine doctor as Florida’s Surgeon General. From an NPR story from last month:
On Tuesday, DeSantis tapped Dr. Joseph Ladapo, who was most recently a researcher at UCLA and is a graduate of Harvard Medical School, to serve as both surgeon general and secretary of the state’s Department of Health.
“Florida will completely reject fear as a way of making policies in public health. So we’re done with fear. That’s something that unfortunately has been a centerpiece of health policy in the United States ever since the beginning of the pandemic,” Ladapo said during a news conference.
“This idea that people don’t get to make their own decisions on issues of health related to their own personal health is wrong,” Ladapo said, answering questions from reporters. “Vaccines are up to the person; there’s nothing special about them compared to any other preventive measure.”
I so fear for my children and grand-children as those who are anti-science, anti-vaccine and believe much more in faith than science slowly take over what was once the country that believed in science and data. Imagine the once scourges of rubella, whooping cough and even polio once again becoming the scourges of America as voters clutch their beads and crystals praying for a miracle that will stop these childhood diseases.
