The battle goes on. Nearly 1,000 people flocked to a Times Square rally Saturday to protest the COVID-19 vaccine and mandates that they get jabbed. Some participants wore T-shirts or carried signs that read “My Body, My Choice,” “Freedom Over Fear” and “De Blasio is the Virus.” A truck with an electronic billboard displayed dubious messages such as, “COVID-19 vaccines can cause injury and death.”
“This means standing up for our freedom and indivisible rights, to come together as a group and let each other know we are not alone,” said Brett Copp, 56, a city worker from Staten Island who came to the “Rally for Freedom” at 41st Street and Broadway. The crowd at one point chanted “I stand with Kyrie Irving,” the unvaccinated Nets player who was banned from playing until he gets jabbed. Anti-vaxxer Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the board chair of Children’s Health Defense, addressed the crowd of about 900 and said, “the vaccine is not safe and effective.” “We have no business giving this to little children. It is unethical, it is medical malpractice,” Kennedy claimed.
YouTube recently yanked the Children Health Defense’s channel, saying it was cracking down on content with false claims about vaccines. Instagram previously pulled Kennedy’s account. Big Tech social media are anti America - they have become socialistic.
