Frum anti-vax campaigns funding source
« on: December 28, 2021, 10:08:30 PM »
I see in BP weekly multiple street signs go up explaining different reasons why not to take the vaccine.
Some quote Rabbonim some quote doctors etc
They also publish in the shul pamphlets pages against the vaccine.

Was wondering who backs these initiatives they definitely cost quite a bit of money? Are they getting money from the general anti-vax community or there are frum ppl donating to this course?

Also was wondering why hasn't government invested in the community at the same level to push pro vaccine literature?

You ask who’s funding it, I wonder what their agenda is, what exactly are they looking to achieve, and what will that objective accomplish for them?

Because the government is incompetent.

Is it the same organization throughout all communities? In CH they are called Maccabim, or something similar. Is that the same elsewhere?

They are sponsored by the local mortician's union.  Lol
Obviously they are self funded cuz they really believe what they are saying. Why else would they be pushing this anonymously? Imagine you felt that the shots were dangerous, and ppl were being misled, wouldn't you sponsor your own ads to warn ppl?

I think their campaign is very effective. Call them foolish all you want, but there is no non government "pro vax" alternative doing the same work and it shows.

Didn’t Rich Roberts once trace most of it like the Peach Moms garbage magazine to a handful of people making millions off alternative stuff they were peddling?

Lying has always been more effective at getting attention. A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes. Rattle off enough lies and there’ll never be enough time to disprove them.

+1.

That line is halfway around the world and most never even stopped to think if it is even possible for truth to put shoes on.

That's because lies don't have feet to put shoes on.

Say it better: a lie has no legs to stand on.
