I'm getting too old for this nonsense. The article on Urban Dictionary about RationalWiki (which I'd never heard of) kept talking about "SJW" which I had always thought meant "single Jewish Woman." Now I learn it means "social justice warrior" which may or may not be the same thing ...

Try working it out for yourself instead of looking at your sources...

How about instead of watching half-baked youtube vids we ask the populist right wing wtf it thinks it's doing putting children and others at risk with its anti-vax nonsense?

It has the potential to reduce the numbers of children and others who may be killed by guns.

That's interesting - that the right is promoting anti-vax.

It's usually thought of as being of the left - along with anti-GMO

Right wing pseudoscience is usually thought to include climate change denial and (particularly in America) evolution denial.

I guess that the right in Europe has jumped on the anti-vax bandwagon just to stir.

I've worked it out for myself and I agree with the geezers video. As I have said previously, 2019 will be a year of reckoning for the EU.I don't need to use ir-rationalwiki to guide my thoughts.

Looks like people on both left and right are anti-vaccine so maybe instead of trying to pin it exclusively on the right maybe LIW can go and lobby all sides of politics.

I suspect you couldn't care less ...because you're just trolling. You don't strike me as being quite stupid enough to actually believe this Alex Jones-esque nonsense. And your windups are much cleverer than that. You're actually not one of them, are you?

I don't think anti vax used to be either left or right. I think it was just a load of pseudo-hippie ninnies who drank smoothies made of grass and waved crystals about. Now, however, the right seems to have taken it up as a means to stir fear and mistrust in "the establishment" - jiust one more conspiracy from which they, the right, will save us in the name of "the people".

You mean like this?


Yet more ableist BS from the camp who (ignoring the fact that the whole vaccines cause autism is absolute nonsense) think it is preferable for children to die of preventable diseases than get on the spectrum.
