Rep. Thomas Massie Questions Media Criticism of Anti-Vaxxers: ‘Were They Wrong?’

Since the COVID-19 pandemic changed the world, so-called “anti-vaxxers,” a discriminatory slur used to defame skeptics of the medical establishment that is dominated by Big Government and Big Pharma, have been pilloried by the fake news media.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is noting that many of these skeptics have been undeniably right about the tyranny of the COVID vaccine regime, pointing to a VICE Article from early 2020 as proof.

Massie posted a screenshot on Twitter of an article originally published by VICE in Feb. 2020. The title of the article, “Anti-Vaxxers Are Terrified the Government Will ‘Enforce’ a Vaccine for Coronavirus,” prompted Massie to respond: “Were they wrong?”

The tweet can be seen here:

 

The consensus from the replies is that the anti-vaxxers were, indeed, correct in their concerns about the overreach that would inevitably result from the COVID-19 pandemic:

 

 

Liberty Conservative News has reported on how Massie has held the line for liberty on the question of mandatory vaccines:

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is questioning the libertarian small-government credentials of the Cato Institute because they are advocating for vaccine mandates.

Massie referenced an article published by Cato questioning whether or not “vaccine mandates are justifiable from a libertarian perspective,” calling the discussion “salient.” Massie believes that this question is a no brainer from a libertarian perspective.

“When I first came to Congress, I thought Cato would be a good resource for small government policies,” he said.

“But if you can make a libertarian argument for vaccine mandates, you must be something other than libertarian or small government,” Massie added…

Cato Institute chairman Robert Levy wrote an opinion piece in The Hill where he published liberty-sounding apologia for vaccine mandates.

Levy wrote: ‘“Your right to punch ends where my nose begins.”  That quote, attributed to various sources, is a libertarian maxim — now invoked in connection with COVID vaccine mandates.”

“Here’s the controversy: If the vaccine causes no appreciable injury, can you still refuse to be injected, notwithstanding that you might be visiting significant risks on others? It’s a close call,” he added.

While most libertarians would not consider this issue to be any sort of a close call, Levy argued that vaccine mandates can be justified from a libertarian perspective…

Cato is supporting some of the most heinous and intrusive violations of liberty imaginable. They have proven that the only liberties they care about pertain to corporate profits. Cato is as disreputable and toxic as any entity in the Beltway.”

Opposing the pro-vaxx cult is perhaps the most important issue of the day for defending individual liberty and freedom. Massie stands boldly and effectively against the technocracy on this and all other issues.
