Newsmax Host Claims Vaccines Go “Against Nature” And Diseases Are “Supposed To” Wipe People Out

  • A Newsmax host declared on air that he believes vaccines go “against nature” and diseases are “supposed to wipe out a certain amount of people.”
  • Admitting that he’s “not a doctor,” Schmitt muses on-air, “I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I’m not a pro-vaxxer. I’m somebody that’s looking at this thing and trying to figure it out.”
  • “Maybe there’s just an ebb and flow to life where something’s supposed to wipe out a certain amount of people, and that’s just kind of the way evolution goes.”

“Newsmax host Rob Schmitt on Monday dangerously declared he believes vaccines go “against nature” and diseases are “supposed to wipe out a certain amount of people, and that’s just kind of the way evolution goes.”

Admitting he’s “not a doctor,” as Media Matters reports, Schmitt mused on-air, “I’m not an anti-vaxxer. I’m not a pro-vaxxer. I’m somebody that’s looking at this thing and trying to figure it out.”

“I’ve always thought about vaccines, and I always think about just nature, and the way everything works. And I feel like a vaccination in a weird way is just generally kind of going against nature,” he claimed, ignoring the fact that all medicine in theory does too – if you define evolution in the most basic “survival of the fittest” terms.

“Like, I mean, if there is some disease out there — maybe there’s just an ebb and flow to life where something’s supposed to wipe out a certain amount of people, and that’s just kind of the way evolution goes. Vaccines kind of stand in the way of that. Do you follow what I’m saying? Does that make sense to somebody in medicine?”

Schmitt was speaking to Dr. Peter McCullough, a professor at Texas A&M College of Medicine, who wrongly claimed the Delta variant of the coronavirus is only 30% of COVID-19 cases (it is 51.7%) and wrongly claimed that as time goes on the variants get “weaker.” The Delta variant “is more contagious than the other virus strains,” Yale Medicine reports…”
