Asking people to get a science-backed, individual and community lifesaving shot is not the same as a mass genocide toward entire groups of people.
I appreciate U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer’s condemnation of state Rep. Walsh’s use of the Star of David. While this pandemic has been a series of new situations for everyone, it is unfair to compare a global pandemic, with measures to end it quickly in place, to one of the deadliest periods in history.
Health care should not be a political issue. Despite the fact that there is no current mandate, Walsh should be urging his constituents to protect themselves and others, not comparing vaccinations to the Holocaust.
