A homeless man has completely shut down an anti-vaxxer’s argument in a now viral video…
And how did he do it?
Just 6 simple words.
Scroll on to find out exactly what he said…
Vaccines are responsible for wiping out some of the biggest diseases ever seen.
The smallpox vaccine was the first to be developed against a contagious disease. From 1958 to 1977, the World Health Organisation conducted a global vaccination campaign that eradicated the disease.
However, since the 1990s, there has been a distinct rise in “anti-vaxxers.” Especially after there was a rumored link between the MMR vaccine and Autism.
The rumors came as a result of 1998, Lancet MMR autism fraud, characterized as “perhaps the most damaging medical hoax of the last 100 years”.
The research paper titled Ileal-lymphoid-nodular hyperplasia, non-specific colitis, and pervasive developmental disorder in children, by Andrew Wakefield and several co-authors was published, supposing a link between the MMR vaccine and Autism. The fraud was exposed in a lengthy Sunday Times article by reporter Brian Deer resulting in the paper’s retraction in February 2010, and Wakefield being suspended from the UK medical register 3 months later.
Nevertheless, the damage had been done…
In March of this year, Forbes posted an article highlighting how many people, distinctly within Europe and the US, were hesitant when it came to the Covid-19 vaccines.
Now, what is an anti-vaxxer you ask?
An anti-vaxxer is essentially a person who opposes vaccinations and the laws made that mandate them.
Some anti-vaxxers believe that there are alternatives to vaccinations that may be healthier…
Though many argue that idea is naive and could put themselves, their children and others in danger.
Of course, the argument for and against vaccines could go around and around in circles…
Though one man recently had a pretty good way to stop it.
A homeless man recently went viral after he was filmed shutting down an anti-vaxxers argument…
And he did it with just 6 words. It’s safe to say, people have been loving it…
In the viral video, a group of anti-vaxxer protesters can be seen walking down a boulevard in Los Angeles.
Most of them carrying signs and American flags.
As they walk down, one protestor can be heard yelling:
“Do you see all of these homeless people around? Are they dead in the streets with Covid? Hell no! Why?”
To which she receives an incredible response from a man walking past.
The man, pushing a shopping cart down the street, responded by saying:
“Because I’m vaccinated, you dumb f**k.”
