Incidentally, we have discussed how the news media often hides the party affiliation of misbehaving Democrats, but I had to look up Bevin after CNN neglected to say what his party is. This wasn’t bias, just unprofessional journalism.
Kentucky’s Governor, who is a Republican, revealed that he exposed his nine children to chickenpox so they would get the disease rather than giving them the vaccine.
What an idiot. By doing this publicly, he endorses anti-vaxxer fear-mongering, validates irresponsible parenting, and places lives in danger.
Bevin’s dangerous remarks come soon after a teen in Kentucky sued his local health department, which had temporarily barred students who aren’t immunized against chickenpox from attending school The teen and his father claimed religious discrimination, as some devout Catholics associate vaccinations with fetal stem cells.
Governor Bevin is exposing his ignorance and promoting bad parenting and bad citizenship. I wonder if the state would negotiate a straight-up swap of governors with Virginia? Michael Jackson impressionist Ralph Northam is a silly person, but he is a doctor, and presumably understands the necessity of vaccinations.
No, wait… that means Virginia…and …would be stuck with Governor Bevins.
