A meeting of New England anti-vaccination activists went off the rails earlier this month when one participant accused Republican Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker of being a communist agent.
As reported by independent journalist Eoin Higgins, a recent public meeting of anti-vax group Stand Up Massachusetts quickly spiraled out of control, as attendees spouted paranoid and unfounded accusations about politicians and public health officials.
Attendee Dianna Ploss, for example, ranted against the Massachusetts Republican Party for not being receptive to her group's concerns.
"The Republicans in Massachusetts cannot be trusted!" she fumed. "Charlie Baker is an agent of the Chinese Communist Party... trust no one!"
Fellow anti-vaxxer Dattatreya Haynes, meanwhile, promoted paranoid beliefs about the group that he himself was supposedly a part of by claiming that "it's very possible that Stand Up Massachusetts has been infiltrated and is being controlled by other forces."
One anti-vaxxer, who identified herself as Ellen, told the group she spent her weekend haranguing local pharmacists about the vaccines.
"This weekend, I went to all the local pharmacies to talk about informed consent with the vaccine and to talk about the Nuremberg Code," she said. "I also went to a school board meeting -- that's why I pulled my kids out, they were talking about a mask mandate!"
