“General Hospital” Actor Loses Case Against ABC Over Anti-Vax Firing, Supported by Conspiracy Theorist Robert F. Kennedy Jr.


We will not be seeing Ingo Rademacher any more daytime dramas.

Rademacher lost his own daytime drama yesterday when a judge ruled against in favor of ABC. The “General Hospital” actor refused to be vaccinated after Disney-ABC ordered all staff to get the shots during the pandemic. Judge Stephen Goorvitch. ruled that Rademacher had no “religious exemption.”

The actor was supported in his cause by conspiracy theorist Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who thinks he can get the Democratic nomination for president based on a platform of lies and twisted science. The Rademacher ruling should be a setback for him.

More alarming: Rademacher based his “religious exemption” claim on a book he said he followed called “The Revelation of Ramala.” Obscure and out of print, “Revelations” is described as a “blending of Eastern enlightenment philosophy with Christian principles, to develop an ideal of “Christ-light”. To develop one’s Christ-light is to be able to perform miracles such as Jesus was capable.”

More importantly: Rademacher played Jasper Jacks on and off for 25 years on “General Hospital.” Australian, with a noticeable accent, Jacks could be easily recast. Rademacher will not be returning to the role.
