Anti-scientific conspiracy theories based on flimsy evidence are spreading, not just on the right, but even on some segments of the left. There’s no better person to address this than Marxist epidemiologist Rob Wallace @FarmingPathogen. WATCH: invidious.fdn.fr/pIhKzUnWEas

Thank you very much for posting this. I'll be using clips from this video in conversations on Twitter about Covid. There is a loud but small faction on the left who's fallen for antivax disinformation & manipulation. It needs major pushback.

There will always be conspiracy theories but it shouldn't detract from the shortcomings of policymakers and manufacturers. Acting like experts are offering an airtight consensus is just pissing more moderate people off than anything. Discussing antibodies/meds is not unscientific

True but the Anti-vaxxers don't frame it like that. They amplify only the negative or doubtful news about vaccines. This dovetails with general anti-vaxxer narratives ( with plausible deniability if accused of outright anti-vax stances.)
