There have been at least two bomb threats against Boston hospital (see news stories here, here, and here, and see Department of Justice press release here).

The bomb threats are believed to have been inspired by misinformation about the hospital's Gender Multispecialty Service, the nation’s first pediatric and adolescent transgender health program, circulated by various right wing media stars and social media influencers.

Two of the above-linked news stories also mention that various hospitals -- and their staff -- have been subject to quite a bit of Internet harassment inspired by right wing mass media and online diatribes against the hospitals' gender clinics.

This video by Keffals shows excerpts from some of those right wing diatribes:

"Misinformation"?

Citing Keffals as a reliable source?
