Well, a week couldn't go by here at BrainJet without us having a little fun at the expense of everybody's punching bag... Anti-Vaxxers. But hey, I'll leave them alone as soon as they stop hijacking public meetings to verbally attack public officials and doctors who are more concerned with protecting countless children than hearing some half-baked theory on why vaccines are giving their kids autism, which they aren't.
I don't see that happening anytime soon, so let's start up another breakdown of what the anti-vaxxer community is up to now.
The following story comes to us from the Garden State (New Jersey), where a group of anti-vaxxers took to the New Jersey Assembly Health Committee's meeting in April to speak out (see: throw a hissy fit) as the committee passed a bill making it more difficult for families to obtain religious exemptions for immunizations, according to the New York Post.
According to the Post, "the bill, which passed the committee 7-3, will require families to provide schools with a notarized document explaining how vaccination 'would violate, contradict, or otherwise be inconsistent' with their religious beliefs, to show their objection isn't about 'philosophical' or 'safety' concerns."
In one fell swoop, the committee was able to piss off anti-vaxxers and religious zealots. See for yourself in this video provided by NowThis News:
Yeah, there's a lot going on there. I had to watch the video several times myself (you're welcome NowThis News) just to try to make sense out of all of those comments. But even after multiple rewatches, I still can't seem to understand why these people are allowing themselves to get all bent out of shape just because they can no longer hide behind the Bible when it comes to being a decent human being.
Below, we break down some of the most cringe-worthy statements from the group of anti-vaxxers.
This is by far my favorite moment from the nearly two-minute video. Here you have a woman claiming to be part of a minority just because her children will now have to get vaccines just like everyone else. Yeah, you can't just claim to be a minority just because the majority of people think anti-vaxxers are tin-foil hat wearing conspiracy nuts.
And then you have this guy. Not very Christian of him to yell profanities at a group of lawmakers just because he doesn't get his way. Don't get me wrong, it's his right to yell at something if he doesn't agree with, but maybe hiding behind the Bible while doing so isn't the best look for your cause.
She's back again. This lady actually made two appearances in the video. This time she makes even less sense than before as she yells that "Corporate America does not belong in science." Okay.
I'm not the only one having fun with this video. For the past several months, people all over social media have had a laugh or two at the expense of these crazies. Take a look for yourself:
