A man's anti-vaccine rant at a San Diego, California Board of Supervisors meeting has gotten a lot of attention in the past few days because of just how off the wall it was.
The man—identified as Matt Baker who was sporting blond dreadlocks and yelling at the top of his lungs for the entire time—went off on a tirade against vaccines equating vaccine mandates to Nazi Germany.
You can see footage here:
"Your children and your children's children will be subjugated," Baker said about the vaccine created to end the global pandemic and save lives.
"They will be asked, 'How many vaccines have you had? Have you been a good little Nazi?'"
Currently there are 16 vaccines which children are recommended to get between birth and the age of 18—which has been true for nearly all of our lifetimes. Only one of those vaccines is a newer addition.
Yet despite Baker's warning, children have yet to become Nazis.
The anti-vaccine movement is responsible for vaccine hesitancy nationwide, resulting in the surge of the Delta variant which is currently overwhelming healthcare systems.
Most folks who viewed Baker's sentiments felt uncharitable about them.
The culmination of years of misinformation and the ability of those people spreading said misinformation to connect lead to this moment and this man.
But in the end, reality will follow facts and science regardless of the lies people believe.
