Liberals insist that conservatives are anti-science. As Mia Farrow put it in a tweet she subsequently deleted, conservative anti-vaxxers “are delusional & unconscionably selfish-putting not just their kid at risk, but also other children.”
Yet for some strange reason liberal Marin County, Calif., has one of the highest rates of unvaccinated kids in California.
The county has long had the Bay Area’s highest rate of “personal belief exemptions,” which allow parents to lawfully send kids to school without receiving vaccinations against diseases like measles, polio or whooping cough. This year, 6.45 percent of Marin’s kindergartners are not fully vaccinated against communicable diseases, according to the state Department of Public Health.
Many tweeters — mostly lefties, naturally — are outraged.
