An important enemy image during COVID to demonize resistance to COVID-19 injections.

The "Anti-vaxxer" is an enemy image created by Big Pharma. The word was first registered by a dictionary in 2008[1], although the meaning has expanded since then. Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban stated in November 2021:

In the end, everyone will have to be vaccinated; even the anti-vaxxers will realize that they will either get vaccinated or die.[2]

Official narrative

By November 2021 the corporate media tone had descended to barely concealed incitement to violence. This German newspaper cartoon (Augsburger Anzeiger) showed Covidstrike, the hot Christmas gift of the year, where the player is saying "I'll get you vaccine-refuser!!"

As of July 2021 Miriam Webster defined "anti-vaxxer" as "a person who opposes vaccination or laws that mandate vaccination".

According to psychologist, "their brains work differently"[3]. Certain personality traits are linked to reluctance to obtain a Covid-19 vaccine, specifically psychopathy, Machiavellianism and collective narcissism, as these traits have previously been linked to heightened conspiracy mentalities.[4]

In November 2021, Dr. Robert Strang, Nova Scotia's chief medical officer of health stated: "To those who could be vaccinated but aren't, who are only focusing on themselves, believing misinformation and false narratives, and more and more are acting with inappropriate anger, shame on you", said [5]

The Washington Post believes anti-vaccine extremism is akin to domestic terrorism.[6].

On COVID-19

On the question of COVID-19 Vaccines, Jane Orient, Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (the majority of whom had not received two such injections), stated:

“It is wrong to call a person who declines a shot an "anti-vaxxer". Virtually no physicians are "anti-antibiotics" or "anti-surgery", whereas all are opposed to treatments that they think are unnecessary, more likely to harm than to benefit an individual patient, or inadequately tested.”
Jane Orient (July 2021)  [7]

Great Britain

The BBC reporting what Keir Starmer wants to do about these protests.[8]

In September 2021, the BBC reported that fake NHS letters were being circulated at schools by "anti vaxxers".[9] In October it as reported in the North East.[10]

In November 2021, The Guardian published an "anonymous" article titled ICU is full of the unvaccinated – my patience with them is wearing thin in which they lambast people who choose not to have the jab.[11]

Albert BourlaFrederick Kempe: There was some fake news during this period of time about the vaccines, you know, all sorts of conspiracy theories. How did you deal with that and how did you navigate that and where do you feel the primary source of this sort of fake news was? How damaging was this to us?

Albert Bourla: I’m afraid it [caused] quite a lot of damage and particularly with us, we were targeted by a lot of, let’s say, dark organizations that you don’t really know [who owns them]. You suspect that there are some countries behind. We were getting a lot of briefings from CIA, from FBI, about cyberattacks that may happen to us, but also about the spread of misinformation.

You know, there are two groups of people: There are the people that they are vaccinated. There are people that are skeptical about the vaccination, and both of them are afraid. Those that are getting the vaccine, they are afraid of the disease, and they believe that because people are not getting vaccinated, they are increasing the risk to them. They are increasing the exposure. So they are mad with them that they don’t get the vaccine. Those that don’t get the vaccine, they’re afraid of the vaccine and they are mad with the people that are pressing them to get it.

Those I understand. They are very good people. They are decent people. But they had a fear, and I understand it, and they don’t want to take chances. But there is a very small part of professionals [who] circulate, on purpose, misinformation so that they will mislead those that they have concerns [with the vaccine]. Those people are criminals. They’re not bad people. They are criminals because they literally cost millions of lives.”

Arne Duncan“Have you noticed how strikingly similar both the mindsets and actions are between the suicide bombers at Kabul’s airport, and the anti-mask and anti-vax people here? They both blow themselves up, inflict harm on those around them, and are convinced they are fighting for freedom.”Arne Duncan29 August 2021
