According to Paul Joseph Watson, establishment Republican strategist and rabid Never Trumper Rick Wilson suggested that anti-vaxxers be placed in re-education camps and have their children taken away.
Wilson responded to an NBC News story about people who questioned the safety of vaccines. In this segment, it detailed that these anti-mandatory vaccination activists are taking their fight “offline” because of mass censorship coming from Facebook and are “harassing doctors and private citizens.”
“Anti-vaxxers are a scourge and a strong argument for re-education camps, the immediate seizure of their property, and putting their children into protective custody,” Wilson stated.
Wilson’s tweet received nearly 8,000 likes.

Regardless of whether anti-mandatory vaccination activists’ arguments are based on faulty science, the suggestion of taking away their kids and sending them to the camps is absurd.
Respondents to the tweet correctly saw it that way.
“Like China is doing to the Uyghur?” one Twitter user said.
“You should definitely visit the @AuschwitzMuseum because a place like that was only possible thanks to people who think like you,” commented another.
Rick Wilson is another case of an establishment conservative who has built a reputation for himself as a Never Trumper. Wilson played a role as a strategist in Evan McMullin’s failed presidential campaign back in 2016.
When it comes to parroting establishment talking points, Wilson is as bad as it gets.
