If you like your unhinged anti-vaxxer screeds in festive holiday song format, have we got the profoundly cringe-worthy video for you!
A San Diego woman has gone viral for her anti-vax cover of Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You," which she delivered at a County of San Diego Board of Supervisors Meeting last week.
See the video below.
The woman's song came in response to the Board of Supervisors' proposal to extend a local health emergency statute pertaining to the ongoing pandemic and the new Omicron variant of COVID-19.
The woman, who identified herself as Bridgette, decided to don a Santa hat and share her thoughts in song form, and the results are somehow orders of magnitude more bizarre than if she'd just yelled them into the microphone like anit-vaxxers usually do.
To be honest and give credit where it's due, Bridgette did a decent job writing her lyrics—even if they are actively divorced from reality.
Her version of Mimi's smash hit begins:
“I don't want a lot for Christmas, just body autonomy."
If only the Bridgettes of the world would bring this energy to the debate over women's reproductive freedom.
Bridgette went on to sing:
“I don’t care about the variants, because of natural immunity."
So-called "natural immunity," gained by surviving a COVID-19 infection, is not sufficient protection against variants as research has repeatedly shown, but go off Bridgette.
So what else did she have to sing about?
Well, freedom of course.
“I just want my freedom now, the constitution will show us how, make my dreams come true."
"End the state of emergency and acknowledge early treatment too…"
By "early treatment," Bridgette means veterinary anti-parasitic Ivermectin and anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine, which anti-vaxxers, conspiracy theorists and former Republican President Donald Trump have repeatedly hailed as cure-alls for COVID-19 despite the fact use of both drugs to treat the disease has resulted in deaths.
Twitter, of course, had a field day with Bridgette's ludicrous little ditty.
As for Miss Mariah herself, she is very much not on board with that anti-vaxxer vibe.
Ms. Mimi is vaxxed and made sure to let her fans know.
Anyway, we look forward to fellow anti-vaxxer Eric Clapton inviting Bridgette on tour in 2022 to duet with him on his own anti-vaxx song "This Has Gotta Stop."
