In what world does “natural immunity” fend off a lethal respiratory virus? Are people so far gone that they don’t understand that Fauci’s specialty is, in fact, immunology, and he’s considered to be among the world’s best? People choosing to disregard established science because they saw a Mercola video just astound me. Never gamble with your health. It’s always a FAFO.

Look at any of their memes about "natural immunity" and you will very quickly see their understanding of germ theory stopped around 1st or 2nd grade.

They think of the immune system as a muscle that gets stronger after every workout rather than a fallible biological system with strengths and weaknesses for everyone.

And it's not like if you explained this to them, that they would understand. These people are extremely closed minded, especially if it's not another member of the tribe telling them this.

So, to them, Fauci is bad because he said stuff that ran counter to the Gospel of Donald Trump, who had already said before mid-March 2020 that COVID was a "Democrat hoax just like Russia Russia" and it'll "go away" like magic.

Ironically, the immune system develops up to around age 8, about the same age their overall comprehension developed to.
