Anti-vaxxers take over a Burger King, and yes, it's even more ridiculous than it sounds

What could be possibly more American than a group of cranky a-holes, fighting for their God-given right to spread deadly diseases at fast food restaurants? That’s peak 2021, folks; MAGA mites always save the best for last.

As much as I’d like to dump most Burger King food into Boston Harbor (still a far better choice, I’d argue, than eating it), I don’t think this protest will have the historic impact these anti-vaxxers hope it will.

This is neither a brave nor righteous stand, and the snowflakes involved appear to have melted faster than Frosty in that greenhouse. And bringing Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. into it—which, of course they did—is just sad. Besides, the civil rights icon famously said he hoped for the day when people are judged by the content of their character, not by the contents of their Underoos after the police show up.
