It's a crazy echo chamber that all anti-vaxxers call it the "jab" - its weird.
Our premier has used 'the jab' on a number of occasions.

Did it actually say “then.” That would be hilarious if so.

The jab seems to be a term that has historically been common in the UK, I noticed it used a lot from there early on, and then some adopted it here. I don’t think it has anything to do with whether someone is an anti vaxxer.

“Death jab” on the other hand….

We all know this could have been over a year ago with draconian actions taken by governments. You want to see the power of an authoritarian government? infected would've been barricaded in their homes, and vaccines would have been mandatory.

If there is any argument against this being a "plan-demic" its your rant

Where did I say this was a plan demic??? I come from a place and a mindset where if you are in the top jobs in your profession, your job is to do your actual job.

There has been a million mistakes from the top health officials that have resulted in a million lives being lost and how many more infected and injured. I came into this with a different lens when at the start of Covid, China was building isolation hospitals and quarantine centers in days, wearing N95 masks and hazmat suits and our public officials were saying masks aren't required, Covid was low risk and one of the major concern in Canada was the supply of NHL hockey teams sticks for the playoffs due to factory shut downs.

I just keep seeing a million mistakes across the board and feeling frustrated. It just seems that we are always chasing rather than getting ahead of things.

The quote on top of her twitter page is fitting.

"If your goals set you apart from the rest, stay alone"

Fitting advice for both her and Fleury.

No surprise that she is an anti-vaxxer as she has dove into Holistic Healing and Pseudoscience around "transformational neuroscience."

There really needs to be a crackdown on Chiropractic, Naturopathic and Holistic Healing places. They are becoming dangerous vessels of Pseudoscience and Fraud.

I’ve heard several vaxed people call it the jab.

It’s unfortunate that Jamie Sale is stupid. I used to like her.

His Twitter is pretty clean and even has a Pro-Vax Like. He probably has to keep it that way though as he is with Sportsnet.

Is transformational neuroscience a new age term for a frontal lobotomy via Facebook and TikTok?

If its essential snake oil, you'll probably find a market for it.

Jab is definitely not limited to anti-vaxxers and also sorts of doctors and politicians from the left and right use jab at times when speaking. I actually find that jab often gets used when speaking or making comments to marginalized groups and I think that authority figures here use the term to dumb down the message for the general public.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...aring-fake-arm

An Italian man is facing charges of fraud after turning up for his Covid-19 vaccine wearing a fake arm.

So determined was he to dodge the jab but still obtain a health pass, the anti-vaxxer may have paid hundreds of euros for the silicone prosthetic.

Chiropractors in BC displaying clearly they have no business being in business.

https://globalnews.ca/news/8424774/c...-mandate-vote/

Quote:
At Wednesday’s annual general meeting of the B.C. College of Chiropractors, the body that regulates and licences the profession, a resolution opposing provincial vaccine mandates won the support of 78 per cent of delegates.
Quote:
On Friday, B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix said comments at the meeting questioning the science behind vaccines were “disappointing and wrong,” adding there would be no leeway for chiropractors.

So a profession that is already considered by many to be pseudoscience decides to do this? Unreal.
