🧵THREAD: I swear to God and sonny Jesus, if I have to explain to another Pro Vaxxx lunatic why using a 116 year old Supreme Court decision saying you can mandate vaxxxes is a dumbass idea, I'm gonna scream.

Get this through your heads, you clueless twots:

The case you're referring to, "Jacobson v Massachusetts," also established forced sterilization of women as settled law.

There's a reason "Jacobson" hasn't been invoked in 70+ years.

The SCOTUS decision below enables both mandates AND "cutting fallopian tubes," based on Jacobson.

This is the legal foundation you're basing your "Mandate Fantasy" on: --

That's the legal theory you're hanging your fedora on, you dopey twots;

Both cases are have never been overturned.

It was after the war crimes of WWII that eugenics (that involved forced injections by the Germans) fell out of vogue with the American people. (obviously)

But if Jacobson is Constitutional, then Texas could (in theory) require women trying to put a child on welfare to submit proof of a tubal ligation.

They would not be *forcing* the procedure, just denying services based on the failure to do so.

Sound familiar?

Again, both cases have never been overturned, so both are subject to stare decisis.

You can't get to mandates without allowing red states to cut off welfare to mothers who refuse to get "fixed."

What I really don't understand is why you "progressives" would want to base the rules of our 2021 society on court rulings made before women could vote, child labor was still legal, & the KKK would regularly march on Washington DC.



But, since we're basing our current policy on 100+ year old Supreme Court decisions, let's see what else we can dredge from that time, shall we?

How about "Ozawa v. United States" (1922)

A Japanese immigrant, Takeo Ozawa, attempted to become a full U.S. citizen, despite a 1906 policy limiting naturalization to whites and Black people.

Rather than challenging the constitutionality of the law (the court was so racist, it would've failed) he simply attempted to establish that Japanese Americans were white. The Court rejected this logic.

You want to follow that precedent too? No citizenship for Asians?

How about "Lum v. Rice" (1927)

A 9 year old Chinese girl named Martha Lum from Mississippi, which had racially segregated schools and not enough Chinese students to warrant funding a separate Chinese school was STILL required to attend school.

But there was NO school.

Lum's family sued to allow her to attend a local white school, but the Supreme Court said NO.

The Supreme Court basically said: "The State of Mississippi can penalize you for NOT going to school, even though they're not allowing you to go to school because you're Asian."

How about "Hirabayashi v. United States" (1943)

Gordon Hirabayashi, a student at the University of Washington, challenged the executive order interning Japanese-Americans before the Supreme Court — and lost. Just because.

Or, how about we go back a mere 6 years before your precious 1905 Vaxxxx mandate ruling?

"Cumming v. Richmond" (1899)

When three Black families in Richmond County, Virginia faced the closing of the area's only public Black high school.....

...they petitioned the Court to allow their children to finish their education at the white high school instead.

It only took the Supreme Court three years to violate its own "separate but equal" standard....

....by establishing that if there was no suitable Black school in a given district, Black students would simply have to do without an education.

So sure, let's start digging up old SCOTUS decisions, shall we?


You intergalactic douchebags.

By the way, if you ACTUALLY believed Psaki today; that "80% of Americans are vaxxxinated.."

I would like to talk to you about owning a Timeshare!

Many people think timeshares are too expensive or that it makes more sense in terms of cost to book one-off vacations every year.
It’s true that timeshares are expensive upfront, but are much more cost-effective than a lifetime of vacations!

One-off vacation prices vary widely, as they’re affected by things like time of year, the popularity of the destination....
....and how far in advance you’re booking your accommodation and other needs.

With vacation ownership through a timeshare, you no longer have to worry about any of it.

My best🧵thread ever

I've been talking a lot lately about how our ancestors knew more about medicine then we give them credit for.

They weren't the primitive witch doctors they're portrayed as.

Today's example: Bromelain.

In tropical environments, tribal people relied..(1/17)
On plentiful Pineapples for medicinal purposes.

Specifically, these tribes would grind the stems and consume them.

Like all natural, tribal "medicine" it was chalked up to culture & superstition...

It wasn't until the 19th century that a Venezuelan scientist isolated the enzyme BROMELAIN in Pineapple.

However, it took until 1957 before researchers discovered that the highest concentrations of the enzyme were in the pineapple’s stem.

THREAD; Hey, @US_FDA...ya'll should check this out!

"The sheer scale of disease elimination is staggering. During the first decade of this century, 300 million people, roughly the population of the USA, were taking ivermectin tablets annually."

Nobel Committee -December 7, 2015
"Ivermectin is being used ever more widely as a remedy for strongyloidiasis which afflicts 30–100 million people worldwide and to treat and prevent scabies"

Nobel Prize Committee - December 7th 2015
"Oral ivermectin has been used since 1993 to treat both common scabies and crusted scabies, particularly to control outbreaks in nursing homes where whole-body application of topical agents is impractical"

I can't believe I've never heard of this scandal before.

Forget about trusting the government, do you trust Pfizer?
And years later this came out:

And after all of those bribes to Nigerian officials, what became of the Nigerian government's own investigation report? There were 3 copies, all were "lost."
