Ever Wonder Why?

Now there is a philosophical question that would keep some wracking their brains to explain.

But for this post I am asking….Why are so many whites against vaccination.

This gives my a chance to inject a bit of history to explain the situation today.

To begin with this type of rhetoric is nothing new for the US…..

“It goes back to the 19th century where you start encountering terms like ‘medical tyranny’, ‘medical liberty,’ ‘natural immunity,’ and it’s conflated with whiteness.”

“The idea is that white people somehow, through their good genes, ‘very good genes’ as Trump would put it, have that immunity,” he said. “So Trump, DeSantis, Abbott, all these folks are pulling on a right-wing populist and religious thread in American life, and pulling it horribly into the present. They didn’t invent it, they exploited it.”

I have noticed at least in my region that the most vocal anti-vaccine people are white men…..not totally but for the most part.

Why is this?

First their reasoning is about as stupid as anything you will hear or read…..

Tennessee’s former vaccine chief Dr. Michelle Fiscus has claimed that the state’s “White, male, rural conservatives” are avoiding the Covid-19 vaccine to avoid “placating the left.”

Ficus said she was “dismayed” by the rumors and conspiracies surrounding the Covid-19 vaccine, noting that they’re beginning to launch theories about other childhood vaccines as well.

“But I think the other thing in Tennessee, and I think in a lot of our Southern states that’s happening, is this ideology that if you get this vaccine, you’re somehow placating the left part of the political spectrum,” she said, later revealing that, “Our most hesitant population in Tennessee is the white, male, rural conservatives.”

What kind of moron risks the health of their family and loved ones because of ignorant belief like this?

IDIOTS!

My grandfather had a saying….”Ignorance is fixable, Stupidity is lethal”….he is proving to be very astute in his old age.

Any thoughts?

  1. Even after all this time, in our rural county, we are still only 40% vaccinated and our positivity rate is running about 20%. I am surrounded by the very people you mention and it puts me at risk every time I step outside my home.

    1. The same here in Mississippi….my county is about 40% fully vaccinated…..and masks are not mandated by the governor……I am glad I am a hermit…..works well for me chuq

  2. Reblogged this on It Is What It Is and commented:
    White males … supremacy? Stupidity and idiocy – found in the “Y” chromosome, I believe!! … “I think in a lot of our Southern states that’s happening, is this ideology that if you get this vaccine, you’re somehow placating the left part of the political spectrum,” she said, later revealing that, “Our most hesitant population in Tennessee is the white, male, rural conservatives.”
