Not mostly, but instead likely and consistently the largest group. Still almost 1 in 4 Republicans.

Carlson is a dodging coward too.

Oh fer krise sakes. 

I have never seen anyone on Fox dis the vaccine and I watch a lot.  They do interview some who are opposed for varying reasons in order to present all views, but no one on their payroll has come out against them to my knowledge.  There was even a story by a competitor that Fox mandated vaccination which is false.  If you read the comments to the tweet linked above you will see references to that story.  It also mentions a Washington DC mask mandate for the indoors where these pictures were taken.

What is said at Fox is that the vaccines should be a personal choice.  They speak up on behalf of those who have survived and have natural immunity and how it needs to be recognized as an alternative.

But I am surprised that you would even bother to post this because it contradicts your narrative that it is mostly Trump supporters who are the unvaxxed.  This certainly casts some serious doubt to the BS you have been pushing for nearly a year now.

Now everyone can go ahead and say how stupid I am and subhuman for even watching Fox, let alone admit to it.

I am sure that the gentleman from Oklahoma and his friend in Texas will have some stronger words to describe me as they usually do.

The Unvaccinated May Not Be Who You Think
There has been strikingly little research on the sociology of the pandemic, even though billions of taxpayer dollars have been spent on vaccines. The assumption that some scientific breakthrough will swoop in to save the day is built too deeply into our national mythology — but as we’ve seen, again and again, it’s not true. (...)

Furthermore, their research finds that the unvaccinated, overall, don’t have much trust in institutions and authorities, and even those they trust, they trust less: 71 percent of the vaccinated trust hospitals and doctors “a lot,” for example, while only 39 percent of the unvaccinated do.

Relentless propaganda against public health measures no doubt contributes to erosion of trust. However, that mistrust may also be fueled by the sorry state of health insurance in this country and the deep inequities in health care — at a minimum, this could make people more vulnerable to misinformation. Research on the unvaccinated by KFF from this September showed the most powerful predictor of who remained unvaccinated was not age, politics, race, income or location, but the lack of health insurance.

The Covid States team shared with me more than a thousand comments from unvaccinated people who were surveyed. Scrolling through them, I noticed a lot more fear than certainty. There was the very, very rare “it’s a hoax” and “it’s a gene therapy” but most of it was a version of: I’m not sure it’s safe. Was it developed too fast? Do we know enough? There was also a lot of fear of side effects, worries about lack of Food and Drug Administration approval and about yet-undiscovered dangers. (...)

This is another area in which the dominant image of the white, QAnon-spouting, Tucker Carlson-watching conspiracist anti-vaxxer dying to own the libs is so damaging. It can lead us to ignore the problem of racialized health inequities, with deep historic roots but also ongoing repercussions, and prevent us from understanding that there are different kinds of vaccine hesitancy which require different approaches. (...)

Of course, there are some people who it seems will never be persuaded. One strategy that has been shown to work is to highlight deceptive practices. In campaigns to keep teens from smoking, advertisements pointed out how the tobacco industry manipulated people. For Covid, the unvaccinated could be shown that they have been taken in by people who have misled them, even while getting vaccinated themselves.

Just recently, there was a brief glimpse at how Fox News actually looks behind the camera: everyone in the office was wearing masks, even as the hosts have often talked about the alleged tyranny of it all. Stars like Tucker Carlson rant against vaccines, even as their workplace says that more than 90 percent of full-time employees have been vaccinated.

Why Many Black Americans Changed Their Minds About Covid Shots
Black Americans were once far less likely than white Americans to be vaccinated. But a wave of pro-vaccine campaigns and a surge of virus deaths have narrowed that gap, experts say.

Ivermectin is the new hydroxychloroquine, a drug repurposed for COVID-19 that almost certainly doesn’t work but is still being touted as a “miracle cure” by quacks, grifters, and political ideologues. Are the data supporting it all fraud?


Not a very good headline, to yet another complex problem.
It appears from a scientific standpoint, there is a theory it might help, but the data currently available to assess its effectiveness is not sufficient, or not high quality. So, it should not be prescribed, and certainly not as a preventive. Whether or not it is worth pursuing further research? I dont know.

Enter ivermectin, an anthelmintic drug commonly used around the world to treat diseases caused by parasitic roundworms in both animals and humans. Based on a recent BBC news report, “Ivermectin: How false science created a Covid ‘miracle’ drug“, it’s looking more and more as though the clinical trial base for the drug as a treatment for COVID-19 is almost all either fraudulent or so badly done that it might as well be fraudulent. Given the publication of that news report, now seems to be as good a time as any to revisit ivermectin and look at the massive fraud that’s fueled massive grift and many conspiracy theories.

I know you like to dance Lazy8.  Sorry to hear that.

Our autumn Wind Bell Choir practices have been cancelled due to the 4th wave but so far most people seem to be on side with provincially-mandated vaccine passports.  (Crossing my fingers.)

———————————————————-

While I am on it.......    Folks talk about Canadians and others as being more inclined to defer to authorities.    I should not speak for others but I know in my case, that I am well educated and smart enough to know what I do not know or understand very well.  What I do not know or understand is far greater than what I know and do understand.  Frankly, it is almost intimidating. 

It might also help to have some understanding of scientific and professional consensus and how understanding and opinions can evolve over time in those communities.

Great freedom-loving American patriot. 

He's not alone. At least his dictat is an executive order, easily overturned. My state lege wrote such a thing into state law.

Which means the dance weekend we run every year can't require vaccination, which means (with the current case numbers here) we can't hold the event safely.

So we cancelled the event. For the second year in a row.
