The Short Leap from Antiscience to Antisemitism
Hosted By: Moment Magazine
From the Black Death in the middle 1300s to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jews have often found themselves scapegoated, but in a modern twist, Jews are now also being blamed for the vaccines that protect against the coronavirus. Join world-renowned virologist Dr. Peter J. Hotez, author of the recently released book “The Deadly Rise of Anti-Science: How Health Freedom Propaganda Endangers the World,” for a conversation about the roots of this branch of antisemitism, the connections between the “health freedom” movement and the far right, the dangers vaccine scientists face, especially Jewish ones, and what can be done to stop the spread of these conspiracy theories.
