I'm at my wits end. He's addicted to anti vaccination propaganda on Twitter. Obsessed with it. He's convinced there's a global scandal regarding Covid and vaccination. Figured manipulated blah blah. He's 52 unvaccinated and trying to convince DS14 not to get it! I'm 44 fully vaccinated full time NHS and vaccinate at weekends for extra cash. Haha Grin he's even said I'll end up at The Hague for war crimes. It was a tongue in cheek comment but ffs. Little does he know I signed DS14 consent form and he's been vaccinated already! I read all the facts, DS read all the information provided and he decided to have it done. No persuasiveness from me. DS decided and made an informed decision to be vaccinated. Very brave considering anti vac rantings from DH. I want my DH back. What can I do?

Your husband called you a war criminal? What a charmer.

He sounds thick. And he’s trying to harm your son. Leave him

Not a lot. There is no telling some people. The only think I can suggest is every time he says/sends something you return with the actual facts

Bombard him with links etc

Otherwise the choice is put up with it and ignore, or tell him to leave

Yes we're still together. A difference of opinion, however ill informed is no reason to leave someone. After a long day at work I really really can't find the enthusiasm and motivation to find information to counter all this utter twisted tripe he reads.

"A difference of opinion, however ill informed is no reason to leave someone.' Don't be silly, all reasons to leave boil down to a 'difference of opinion' - one person thinks something is okay to do or say, the other doesn't. I'd certainly be considering whether his paranoia was affecting other areas of my marriage and whether this was likely to be something that would continue to fester and spread.

Find the internet admin password, change it, remove internet access to all your husband’s devices. If he complains tell him you are a war criminal, remember?

To make an informed decision your son needs to read both sides of the argument. If you were my wife I would be disgusted that you went behind my back and signed the form.

Your DH’s stance on Covid, and what he did with regards to your ds, would be verging on a deal breaker for me. I don’t think I could have any respect for him.

I think one person buying into conspiracy theories to the point of obsession is more than just 'a difference of opinion'. It's worrying behaviour with the potential to escalate (there's a thread at the moment where someone's parter is hoarding weapons for doomsday prep), it would cause me to reevaluate the relationship.

There's a difference of opinion, and there's calling someone a war criminal for giving people vaccines.

To make an informed decision you need to evaluate the credible evidence available to you at the time and balance the personal risks and benefits. You do not need to consider conspiracy theories or non verified sources.

It seems like the son did this and made his own choice, his mother supported him.

Not all evidence is of equal quality.

Pushing conspiracy theories and misinformation is not "reading both sides of the argument" @Bewildered2021

There's no excuse to share that fake consent form when it's been revealed as fraud, fact checked by experts who have explained there's no truth it it, and is currently being investigated.

Maybe if the NHS but together genuine pro and con information for would be recipients this kind of thing wouldn’t happen.

Misinformation is not exclusive to those not in favour of the C19 vaccine, registered nurses vaccinating people have also done this when patients have asked genuine questions.

Let's leave aside his and your vaccination status, and differences in your opinions of what you consider credible evidence. The issue is your DS's vaccination. As we know, opinions are hugely split over this, and the JCVI didn't recommend it. You consented to it behind your DH's back. In your DH's shoes, I would be beyond upset. This is a massive betrayal, IMHO.

Just out of interest, what is factually incorrect on the sheet you've posted?

It's not referenced for a start so could be either fact or fiction. Lack of correct referencing is often a red flag for poor quality or misleading data.

Literally every point is either incorrect or misleading.

In the original (this has been cropped) the fraudster used an incorrect NHS logo and linked to the CDC who have nothing to do with England's vaccination programme.

Has been widely reported as a hoax letter sent to schools, masquerading as an official consent form coming from the NHS.

My DS 14 would have told him to fuck off. He's old enough to make his own decisions.

That's impressive work they tracked down the fraudster so fast.

Unsurprising he's linked with the HART group.

So let him know DS is jabbed no further difference of opinion needed.
