Big Bird’s Tweet; Unethical and Manipulative?

“I got the COVID-19 vaccine today! My wing is feeling a little sore, but it’ll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy. Ms. @EricaRHill even said I’ve been getting vaccines since I was a little bird. I had no idea!”9:09 am · 6 Nov 2021·Twitter Web App44.7K Retweets16.7K Quote Tweets285.1K Likes

I am neither a pro or anti vaxxer. I believe in informed consent. Review the facts if you can find them in the waves of government propaganda disguised as public health information. Be aware if you aren’t already if you don’t roll up your sleeve you’ll be penalized in many ways unless you show your “papers” to the airlines, merchants, restaurants, hotels etc. that are being bullied into asking you for your papers all of course for the “good of public health”.

But when the propaganda is directed toward children isn’t that low, crude, manipulative and overreaching? What is the next step a new “Vaccine Youth” movement that rewards children for informing on their unvaccinated parents, relatives and neighbours?

Commenting on the use of popular children’s characters to promote vaccines, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., chairman of Children’s Health Defense, on November 6th said:

“The use of trusted and beloved figures in this propaganda assault to induce children into submitting as guinea pigs to injections with an experimental high-risk zero-liability medical product with no proven benefits for kids is unconscionable and revolting.

“Big Pharma has turned Big Bird into a child predator.”

CNN and Sesame Street collaborated on a 10 part series the “ABC’s of COVID” where Big Bird, Elmo and other Sesame Street characters are “educating” children on COVID.
