When it appeared that anti-vaxxers couldn’t come up with any new ways to demonstrate their idiocy, one anti-vaxx leader encouraged his followers to drink their own pee to combat COVID-19. In a video broadcast on his Telegram account and seen by The Daily Beast, Christopher Key, the leader of the anti-vaccine group Vaccine Police, touted the merits of “urine treatment” to his supporters. He said that pee can aid in the treatment of COVID and is even more effective than the vaccine.
“Urine therapy,” Key stated in the video, “is the antidote that we have seen presently, and we have piles and tons of study.” “OK, and I know this seems insane to a lot of you, but gentlemen, God has provided us with everything we require.” He confronts the audience directly later in the video, yelling, “I drink my own urine and I’ve been drinking my own urine for the last 23 years,” before admitting to also drinking bleach.
Of course, this bizarre admission has no bearing on the reality that vaccines are not only safe, but also extremely successful in averting death and serious illness. Despite a mass of evidence to the contrary, anti-vaxxers continue to find new and vile ways to whip themselves into a hysterical frenzy. As the COVID Omicron variety wreaks havoc over the world, it’s more crucial than ever to get vaccinated and boosted. Vaccines have been found in multiple studies to provide significantly improved protection against the virus.
It’s also worth noting that, even by anti-vax standards, Key appears to be exceptionally unglued. The head of the Vaccine Police was recently arrested for illegal trespassing, only days after setting off on a road trip to “arrest” governors, according to The Daily Beast. So, please, don’t pay attention to this jerk. Get inoculated and put on a mask, and resist the impulse to imitate Bear Grylls by drinking your own pee.
A leader of an anti-vaccine movement has been arrested after setting out on a cross-country road trip with the purpose of conducting citizen arrests of Democratic governors. Christopher Paul Key, the leader of the anti-vax “Vaccine Police,” was arrested and booked into Jefferson County Jail in Birmingham, Alabama, on a charge of criminal trespassing in the third degree on Tuesday afternoon. Key is being held without bond, according to a Jefferson County Jail official who spoke to the Daily Beast on Tuesday evening.
