Thought I'd start a thread for a place to post various antivaxxer/5G/woo-woo/whatever posts that have ended up in other threads, this thread is for... well, I think the subject says it all.

 

 

For starters, a friend of mine was down in New Plymouth a few days ago and reported seeing a group of Maori protesters making a fuss about something. They were waving big flags with... Trump on them.

 

 

I mean, Trump of all people. A group of very much non-white people waving the flag of the icon of the American white power movement. The mind boggles.

Yeah, it's bit like Maori Mongrel Mob members chanting 'sieg heil'.





People often mistake me for an adult due to my age.

Why limit it to anti-vax type stuff - this is a fun idea and could extend to anything and be a great laugh.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Does this count - Someone at a Christchurch intersection specifically removed the cones stopping their traverse through an uncontrolled intersection (due to works) to avoid a 30 second (no exaggeration) detour and then drove off leaving the cone barrier broken which lead to an crash causing injuries.

They're on camera though, so hopefully the police pay them a visit today.

Not really..

 

The anti-vax trump people genuinely believe in their nonsense. The Mob adopted 'Sieg Heil' (and the British Bulldog topped with a German Stahlhelm) as a deliberate "up yours" to the authority/society of the time which was predominantly WW1 and WW2 veterans who hated all things German with a passion.

Supposedly intelligent people who give up their jobs/careers because they don't want that "poison in their bodies", or refuse to be told what to do by the government. 

 

I fully expect to catch C19 sometime in the future and hope that the vaccine will give me the protection I need to come through with no lasting health issues.

An ad for anti-vax T-shirts came up in my FB feed today. Reading the comments section, I was somewhat worried for the future of this country.

anti vax & anti mask

 

or simply anti authority, anti rules ?
hence why they go out of their way to make trouble & cause a fuss .

 

same mentality as those who park in disabled car parks, rules dont apply to them .

I don't think the OP needed fixing. It implied that Trump represents an ideology that is the most dangerous to the people carrying the flags, therefore the comment.

Respectfully I disagree. the ethnicity of the protesters did not need to be signalled out.
