This is how projection works: Anti-vaxxers can't face the reality that their behavior poses a threat to public health, so they see the threat in the people untouched by their delusion. Immune to argument and emotional appeal, this ideology keeps growing stronger while reveling in its grievances. I marvel at the self-assurance of these influencers and their success in the attention economy.
