Does anyone have knowledge of what RW media is telling people?

Specifically about the booster?

Two double vaxxed family members are refusing to get the booster. Both saying the exact same thing - "They are through, they are healthy, they have strong immune systems and they are not getting it, nor will they give it to anyone else."

I know, this sounds simple. Just explain all the sound reasons. Know them all.

But this is definitely different. Reasoning is completely ineffective. "What about others"? ineffective. And everyone else has tried, even 96 year old grandma.

Makes me so suspicious. These people are typically kind and loving people even tho not Dems. Can you get hypnotized over the radio? Because they look like that.

PS Forgot other reason - they *think* they may have had it in 2020 because they were kinda sick one time.

1. Brainwashed, like my RW relatives. RW talk radio, and almost all talk radio is RW, is 24/7

brainwashing. Then add in Fox News, Newmax, OAN, news sites, and social media...oh, and their churches, if they're RW evangelists.

7. It's "hone in." And a LOT of what you hear on RW radio, which tends to be more extreme

than Fox News, is criminal IMO. And RW sheep hear that crap all day and all night.

11. Correcting myself. According to Merrian-Webster's site, it can be either and "home in" is

actually more common -- which was news to me, since as far as I can recall from running across it while growing up, it was almost always "hone in."

17. I Don't Blame You!

I've always heard hone in, but given the context of radio & radar, "home in" makes perfect sense.
I always felt like "hone in" was similar to "putting a fine point on it."
So, maybe each works better for different actual situations.

2. Double vaxxed but not getting the booster?

That's weird. They've already gone against the herd, why not one more time?

6. Exactly. That's why I'm suspicious. It's like there's a concerted effort

not to shun those who did get vaccinated. In other words,. " It's ok, we understand you got roped into the vaccines, but no problem just refuse the booster and you'll be back in the herd."

9. Yup. But some are not idiots. So whoever is feeding

them this crap should be arrested. I know, free speech.

5. I haven't seen a bunch of new arguments against the booster specifically.

Just more of the same:

the fact we need a booster means the vaccines don't work

Boosters are bad because it keeps you from getting infected and keeps you from developing natural immunity

8. Yes, maybe that's it. Deep inside they have been

Brainwashed to believe getting it naturally is the best course

10. Except immunity from a past infection wouldn't have been for the omicron variant.

I'm sorry you've been placed in the position of trying to use logic to convince the illogical.

12. The comment "they are through" sounds a lot like Covid fatigue, or vax fatigue.

Could be that. Sometimes people just grow weary of the fight. I haven’t heard anything new from the right wing as it concerns boosters.

16. Good point. But the absolute and total lack of

Empathy toward loved ones is 100% inexplicable. Loved ones they have deeply cared about their entire life. But if RW has you totally convinced that you won't get it... Then your loved ones won't get it from you ?

18. Or maybe they have just convinced themselves.

If they’ve cared about their family their entire life I wouldn’t think it likely for them to stop now. You know them better than I though. I haven’t heard anything from Fox News about boosters specifically. They are too busy attacking Dr. Fauci and Joe Biden about mandates and masks than the vaccines themselves. Not that I watch Fox very often but I do occasionally listen in just to see what lies they are spreading.

Private Groups.
