RFK Jr is trending due to his rhetoric at today’s DC event against vaccines and mandates. Gentle reminder to those who insist on framing vaccine resistance as all about Republicans- JFK Jr is not only the most influential“anti-vaxxer,” but he’s also a (prominent) Democrat.” 🤔
My point? I don’t believe vaccine hesitancy is all about Republicans because of Tucker Carlson, any more than I believe it’s all about Democrats because of RFK Jr. It’s about mistrust and lack of engagement. And attacking people’s politics doesn’t build trust or engagement.

Big difference between Tucker Carlson and RFK Jr is that most other Democrats are not listening to RFK while the majority of the Republican party is listening to Carlson.

Comparing RFK Jr to Tucker Carlson is like comparing Tulsi Gabbard to Donald Trump.

It seems these people are immune from any pro-vaccine messages. And I agree they do not trust it. Their trust of vaccinations going forward and that of their children/families will be affected by this. Its going to take devastating losses for ppl to quit believing memes vs drs.

I’d say the most significant difference is prominent Democrats neither embrace nor defend RFK. So while he have Democratic lineage he doesn’t get the support or cover Republicans give their antivaxxers.
