@NuclearTess This is a typical feel-good propaganda story; I suggest you take it with a grain of salt. Do you really believe the anti-vaxxer's delusion could be so easily corrected?

This exact same formula is used all the time, where a strawman bad guy is set up, an effective counter-argument offered, leaving the misguided fool schooled and enhancing the feeling of smug superiority of the listener.

Very commonly found in Christian propaganda stories against atheists/"evolutionists".

@leadore @NuclearTess i think there was a study recently that showed conspiracy-theory-minded people don't actually care about the substance of the claim, but instead are swayed by the conspiratorial aspect of it. lemme see if i can find it

@NuclearTess except it's not a comspiracy, it's a fact:
Weaponized Health Communication: Twitter Bots and Russian Trolls Amplify the Vaccine Debate

@NuclearTess the funny thing is the attending physician might not be entirely wrong, or at least its not that unhinged from some shit that's happening. like apparently we found out russians are trying to convince americans that 5g gives them brain cancer or whatever and their own citizens that 5g waves are healthy and cure diseases or some shit

like im not about go go all eric garland on this nonsense but i would not be surprised if there's a heaping helping of truth to it

@anna It seems to me like their goal is to destabilize western governments/societies through exploiting corruption, infrastructure insecurities(especially with voting, but wouldn’t be surprised if they were behind some western targeted ransomware campaigns), and disinformation campaigns

@NuclearTess "strange popping noise as her brain misfired" is where I lost it
