Tom Elliott slams ‘insulting’ social media posts from anti-vax mummy blogger
Tom Elliott has ripped into an anti-vax mummy blogger after she dressed up in striped pyjamas and pinned the Star of David onto her children’s clothing, comparing apparently ‘segregated’ Australians who refuse the COVID-19 jab to Holocaust victims.
“This is insulting,” Tom Elliott said on Tuesday.
“It is the height of stupidity.”

Dr Dvir Abramovich, Chair of the Anti-Defamation Commission, said it was abhorrent.
“Frankly, I’m fed up with all these anti-vaxxers,” he said.
“They are trying to make themselves public martyrs.”
But he’s hardly surprised by their comparisons.
“It’s a cheap trick that packs a punch as a scare tactic,” Dr Abramovich said.
“It’s hard to beat for shock value and is always guaranteed to work as a sensational headline generator.
“But you don’t have to be a professor of history to understand there is a world of difference between what happened during the Nazi regime and what’s happening today.
“The anti-vaxxers would have you believe that being told you need a vaccine to go into a pub is the same as the final solution – the shooting of families in open fields, the gassing of mothers and children.”
