ANTIVAXXERS "movement" is likely a scam to polarize voters against the freedom candidate.

I thought it very odd the other day when, in an interview, Ben Carson made the comment that the majority of measles cases are in Democratic districts.
Really? Come on...


Because they are.

There are wealthy suburban LA high schools where the vaccination rate is hovering around 50%. Do you think those are majority Republican?

Is this the latest psy op to keep Americans distracted and divided?, bit like the abortion issue is it not?

It was intended to polarize with its presentation, and it is doing a phenomenal job. Just once, I wish the manipulation was used to start edging towards a better world..

In any case, I feel there is a higher likelihood of risk from unvaccinated, undocumented immigrants than any "anti-vax movement." If there is actually a meaningful risk or correlation at all.

I didn't realize that whether a person vaccinated or not had anything to do with having your head in the gutter.

Since when did it become a "naughty" issue? That's usually when I think about having my head in the gutter.

Very likely a lot of illegal immigration in the general area as well.

For some people, it apparently is...they're all over ATS blaming anti-vaxxers for the everything short of poverty.

Actually, pretty sure it started from a foreign tourist there. I wonder how many illegals work in/around Disneyland?

When was the last time you've been to an amusement park? 1980?

So ONLY vaccinated people go to Disneyland ... except for the illegals who work there? Please, this about unvaccinated people. And face it, a lot of wealthy upper middle class people in Cali don't get their kids vaccinated. This is not about illegal immigrants anymore than it is solely about the other. It is about people who don't vaccinate. And in Cali both groups are likely to not be vaccinated these days.

I dont think that's entirely true. They are actually gwnerally melting plot places and tourism spots where foreigners visit. If that means generally blue big cities ita becauae big citiies are melting pots. The current outbreak Iis in red state Florida but startes in tge meltin pot of Disneyland where like the 2014 outbreak it was likely brought in from outside the country.

I was being rhetorical. The broader point, referenced in my original post, being that the issue is complicated and can't/shouldn't be used for political purposes.

I dont think you read the post or misunderstood. The democrats and republicans are in this together. Neither deserve the whitehouse but they are sure working to make sure one or the other gets it.

They agree it was likely brought in from outside the country. My point is that Disneyland is hardly an inexpensive place to go. The people who are likely to patronize it are wealthy foreigners (like the one who brought in the disease) and mostly upper middle class Americans like the ones who refuse vaccinate for whatever reason.

Kosmicjack's assertion is that the wealthy infected foreigner likely spread the disease to illegals working at Disneyland.

Both could be true. And I don't think it's an either/or, so I think it's false to dismiss either idea as a lot of people seem to. In plenty of places in LA, the vaccination rate in upper middle class kids is as low as 50%. So they are as unprotected as illegal children in a lot of ways and as likely to get infected by an infected foreigner at Disneyland.

Not only that, but the rapid spread of the disease to 13 states also seems to indicate it was people on vacation taking the disease home with them which further supports unvaccinated upper middle class folks over illegals alone as any illegals working at Disneyland are unlikely to take off for places like Nebraska and South Dakota out of the blue.

That's the smart money.
Last years outbreak was caused by a visiting Filipino. This year very likely a similar thing at Disney world wgich is an international tourist spot.

100 bucks to get in Disneyland. Minimum wage families might save up and go once every year or so. Not at all hard to believw a foriegn family on perhaps a once in a lifetime trip woild visit there. Especially if you know how Japan and many other Asian countries view it as a romantic place.

It's like a utopia with rides for 100 bucks. I wouldnt buy all the expensive garbage . Maybe a ticket and lunch.

We dont know and its just as likely (or maybe more likely a visiting foriegner who would be in the country a short time before breaking out). Not making this an immigration issue. That just feeds the cycle before long you are talking about immigration inaide of vaccination and forgetting that vaccinations/antivax people and measles outbreaks didnt just start, its same as it ever was and its a NON ISSUE.
