Are you surprised that hatWRKS, a boutique hat shop in Nashville, is getting so much push back after they debuted their “Not Vaccinated” Star of David patches?
You probably should be…
Understanding the hatWRKS Not Vaccinated Patch Controversy
Not that they don’t deserve it…
It’s that very few people have said or done anything when many others have done exactly the same thing!
Where was the media attention and protestors when Del Bigtree wore a yellow star on his jacket on the steps of the capital in Austin, Texas?
What happened to Del Bigtree?
He certainly wasn’t canceled!
Del Bigtree isn’t the only one of course…
Did you say anything when you heard about these other folks?
Remember when Bob Sears told his story of the “Vaccine Whispers,” the time when kids who weren’t vaccinated would have to wear yellow stars…
Or how about Rob Schneider?
How many times has Rob Schneider brought up the Holocaust?
But I guess the real question should be – why does this continue?
“Last Friday, the owner of hatWRKS hat shop on 8th Ave South in Nashville posted a photo to Instagram with a yellow patch resembling the Star of David along with the words “not vaccinated”.
As of Monday, more than 15 hat companies have cut ties with the Nashville hat store, HatWRKS, after many say the owner made light of the Star of David, comparing patches that Jewish people were forced to wear during the Holocaust to those unvaccinated from COVID-19.Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee CEO responds to controversial hatWRKS Instagram post
And of course it’s because so many people have gotten away with it…
That can stop now though!
Don’t let anti-vaccine folks, or anyone else, use the yellow star or any other symbols or imagery from the Holocaust to promote their agenda.
