It was an ugly scene outside of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center before the NBA’s Nets tipped off for their home opener as anti-vaxxers stormed the arena and broke down barricades.

Here was the scene:

The arena was put on lockdown, and the crowd mix was described by observers as “weird:”

The crowd mix isn’t that weird when one understands where the anti-vax movement overlaps. The Trumpers have merged with the far left RFK Jr. anti-vaxxers to push a toxic blend of lies and misinformation about the COVID vaccine.
