Anti-masking groups draw from anti-vaccination playbook to spread misinformation

Downplaying dangers of COVID-19, taking research out of context are common strategies, experts say

As more regions across the country adopt mandatory masking policies in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, some anti-masking groups are joining forces with anti-vaccination proponents and adopting their techniques to spread misinformation and amplify their message.

The similarities between organized anti-masking and anti-vaccine movements are striking, said Maya Goldenberg, an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Guelph specializing in vaccine hesitancy.

At least one anti-masking group, Hugs Over Masks, actively partners with Vaccine Choice Canada, one of the country's most prominent anti-vaccination organizations.

Vladislav Sobolev, the anti-masking group's founder, has repeatedly praised the anti-vaccination group on social media and during protests.

Sobolev also told CBC News that high-profile U.S. anti-vaccination advocate Sherri Tenpenny, an osteopath who wrote Saying No To Vaccines, is providing online leadership training to his group.

Tenpenny, along with other anti-vaccination advocates in the U.S. and Canada, have embraced the anti-masking cause and opposed COVID-19 lockdown measures.

From Germany, of all places:

No to the EU-immunization certificate!
The mask is the yellow star of the unvaccinated.

In context "yellow star" is not the historically correct translation.

That is a "Jew badge".

German: Judenstern (~ star-of-the-Jew(s))
French: Étoile jaune (Yellow star)
Wikipedia sayeth Yellow badge / Yellow patch / Jewish badge (but not Jew badge nor Yellow star).

Books use Yellow star, but that can be literary:

It's unclear what exactly you mean by "historically correct translation": used in the US at the time? (Then we need a source.) Consensus among professional historians? (Ditto.)

Note that I'm open to learning, just not convinced yet.
