Former Xpose star Aisling O'Loughlin has taken to her Instagram again to update her followers on her latest anti-vaccine message and to address a comment she made referring to Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister of propaganda in World War Two. 

The mother-of-three, who now lives in France with her sons, has been using the social media site to launch almost daily messages slamming the vaccine programme that she has described as "the biggest scandal the world has ever seen”.

In this latest clip she says she wants to “address a little bit of pushback about a comment” that she posted that featured the infamous Nazi politician.

“It was a quote saying that if you tell a big enough lie and keep repeating it, the people will start believing it,” she says, quoting the infamous line that is often attributed to the Nazi minister.

“People are now saying that I'm aligning myself with Nazi values…No, the point of that comment and the point that I would certainly put forward is that Nazi techniques are certainly being used right now.

“We're in some kind of totalitarian regime where we've handed over all our powers and there's a hell of a lot of propaganda being used, so I'm not going to shirk from use of Nazi terminology. And not because I'm aligning myself with Nazi terminology, no.

“When I was a kid, when I was a child, I was obsessed with the Holocaust. I just thought how that could have happened?…It kept me awake, night after night, I just couldn't believe it. How could it have happened and I swore to myself when I was a child I would never let something like that happen on my watch, when I grew up.

“So, here I am I'm honoring that pledge I made to myself when I was a kid, and I think we have to shine a light and be clear about this. These are Nazi tactics or totalitarian tactics, whichever way you want to put it. It's propaganda and it's been used against us to try and create hatred and division.”

She adds: “And I think we need to see that for what it is and stick together and not allow a two-tier society, and not allow the hatred between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, and to start calling it out and not be afraid of such terminology either, because we know what happened during World War Two.

“We know how bad things get, we know how dark humans can be and we must start learning our lessons. We must start learning our lessons, but anyways, just a thought, putting it out there, and I'll be back a little bit later because the thoughts are coming thick and strong. And I'm so welcoming everybody's participation in the conversation, wherever you are on the spectrum there,” she adds.

“People have had one shot of the vaccine, they don’t want to go back for more, people have had the vaccine…we're all in this, we really are all in this together and I think we must stay united. We’ll have the debate by all means and let's evolve that debate but we're most certainly in this together.”
