The current protest in parliament grounds by anti vaxxers is stupid and why the media is giving them so much coverage is beyond me.
We’re told there are 1000 protesters which is insignificant. You’d get more spectators at a club rugby game in outback Wairarapas.
The reason they’re protesting is stupid too. ‘We don’t want the government telling us what to do’ is, at best, mindless.
The government tells you to drive on the left side of the road. You don’t want the government telling you what to do drive on the right. If that fails try running a few red lights. After all the government told you not to.
It’s even worse than that. You need a license to drive a car. The government doesn’t make you get a license but if you want to drive a car you need one. You need a medical degree to be a doctor. The government doesn’t say you have to have a medical degree but if you want to be a doctor you need one.
What’s the anti-vaxxers problem? The government isn’t saying you must get vaccinated. It is saying that if you want to go places and do things you need to be vaxxed. That’s well within their rights and isn’t intended to annoy people but keep them safe.
Finally if I park on the pavement in Wellington I get towed and fined. What have these anti-vax crowd got that I haven’t? Why aren’t they also arresting the rabble in parliament?
