MSNBC Host Joy-Ann Reid called out rock and roll icon Eric Clapton Monday for his stance on anti-vaxxers. Reid mocked Clapton and anti-vaxxers for “act[ing] like their freedom has been taken from them.” Her comments come after Clapton donated a van and £1,000 to a British anti-vaccine group.

“What really stands out about white anti-vaxxers, in particular, is that they act like their freedom has been taken from them,” Reid said. “And they have this weird habit of trying to do that by co-opting the history of actually oppressed people.” Reid featured Clapton in a segment called “The Absolute Worst.”

On November the 5th, 2021 the founder of Jam for Freedom, Cambel McLaughin, will head to court for hosting a gathering larger than 30 people. Now, their funds are used to help pay for court fees. According to their website, funds also go to “any expenses incurred on the road as we tour non-stop in aid of liberty, mental health and medical choice.”

With Clapton’s donation, the organization has only raised £2,680.

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
