I attend an exercise group three times a week in the morning with other women in my neighborhood. I am a senior citizen who WILL NOT get the vax. But the majority of them are double vaxxed and in the past have been pretty adamant about others should be getting it, too.

I didn't make it last Friday due to a Doctor's appointment so did not get to hear their discussion on Biden's mandated VAX.

Today one of the women who has been the MOST vocal about people getting vaxxed. Happened to say she wasn't going to get the booster.

I would have expected her to be first in line.

I didn't press her for her reasoning...... but I suspect she just MAY be waking up. I certainly hope so. She of all of them was the worst of the lot pushing the VAX.

I wish it would catch on in my family. Had a discussion with my older brother yesterday and flat out told him I'm not getting the vax. He said 'well, that's your choice, I thought it was best to do it.' Two weeks ago, he had no intention of getting a booster. He caught a cold and tested positive for rona (I pointed it out that a cold is a type of corona virus) and he swears the reason he had such a mild case was because of the vax. Then he proceeded to blame my unvaxxed aunt (who has been sick for a couple of weeks, but is on the mend) for giving it to him. I got pissed off and got off the phone.

Whether he really believes all that or it's because his daughter told him to think that way, I don't know. What I do know is that I used to think he was actually intelligent. But he's naught but a sheep.

Would you say he’s more of a close minded personality? A more “serious, proper” type?

Oh God, yes, he's closed-minded. And yep, a serious, proper type. I've shown him videos that were hilarious and he nearly hurts himself trying not to laugh because they're "inappropriate."

He's also judgmental as hell (he and I have gotten into arguments over the years about how he thinks he has the right to judge everyone else). He's always been fairly conservative, though, which is why his freak out over the vaccine surprised me. But his wife and daughter are both man-hating liberal-minded fascists, so they probably broke him.

I have a theory about the personality type that is heavily susceptible to this psy-op. And your friend fits it to a T. I’ve also noticed the pattern in a few people that are hard core fraudci is a saint. Same psych pattern. Extremely judgemental although they say they are not. Their actions reveal it though.

Does he seriously think you have to be unvaxxed to spread it?? Ugh, that's so stupid.

And, if he had such a mild case, why the hell is he complainin?

Yep, he truly believes only the unvaxxed spread it. I pointed out that the vaxxed carry 300+ times the normal viral load and he just dismissed it as me being "crazy" and looking up data from untrusted sites. He doesn't want to hear anything that goes against what he believes.

I have no idea why he's complaining. He got really testy about it being my unvaxxed aunt that infected him. Apparently he started with my mom last night (who also refuses to get the damned thing) and she flat out told him the vaccine is there to kill him and is the mark of the beast. That shut him up and he got off the phone.
