"A woman on CNN from Alabama on CNN the other day told the reporter about how sick her 8-year-old son had gotten. Sick for months with a fever, his breathing was still labored nearly a eight months later. When asked if she would get a vaccination, she proudly said, “no ma'am.” What is it that makes her think risking her death, her child’s death is somehow a sign of love? Unless it is a sign of love for her dear leader, Trump?"

The book "Dying of Whiteness" covers this phenomenon.
