Vaccine fears are on display today in Washington, D.C. A group called Revolution for Truth is leading an anti-vaccine event that includes a rally outside the National Press Club and talks by at least 15 speakers. The day will culminate with a speech by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an outspoken opponent to vaccines and founder of the World Mercury Project. The stated purpose of the event is to protest the biased media coverage, exploitation by the pharmaceutical industry and government protection that, the group says, perpetuate the use of what it says are dangerous inoculations.
Several dozen people gathered outside the National Press Club this morning, protecting protest signs with umbrellas. Safety before profit, said one sign. Children I love suffer serious vaccine injuries, said another. Our children are not lab rats, read yet another. Rally leaders with a megaphone led chants of CNN, tell the truth! CDC, tell the truth! No vaccine mandates! No more lies!
Many signs and chants called for a government subpoena of William Thompson, a psychologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thompson was part of the CDC research team that investigated whether thimerosal-containing vaccines were linked to an increased incidence of autism. Following an interview by Andrew Wakefield, the British doctor known for his role in fueling the widely embraced belief that vaccines cause autism, Thompson became suspected of omitting data linking vaccines and autism in black children from the published CDC study.
Meanwhile, on a rain-soaked sidewalk outside the National Press Club, one sign summarized the conspiracy that many anti-vaccine protesters believe is behind the continued administration of vaccines to children: Med-Pharma compensates government that mandates; doctor vaccinates; child deteriorates; Congress obfuscates. Subpoena Dr. Thompson! #CDCWhistleblower.

Imagine that, someone in the Media actually acknowledged that people are concerned about vaccine safety.
I wonder how many "protesters" in today's cold, rainy day, will continue to live because they were inoculated WAAYYY back there when they were a child, by the urgency of their lame, unprogressive parents.
It’s undeniably true...
You can’t get Autism if you’re dead from Polio.
I don’t see how it helps their cause, to trot out well know liberal loudmouth druggie RFK Jr. Has he switched from bitching about global warming to another cause???
I’m not 100% convinced that vaccines are the devil (or his work), but I am very, very skeptical. I think one REALLY easy and cheap study could be a double-blind study:
(1) 10,000 people who get the normal flu shot (study group)
(2) 10,000 people who get injected with saline (placebo group)
(3) 10,000 people who do neither (control group)
I would actually be curious to see the results for each of the groups above. I havent taken a flu shot since I retired from the AF in 2002. I don’t perceive that I’ve been any sicker or healthier than I was when I was getting shot every year. And, no, I am not a germaphobe nor was I somebody who megadosed on vitamins or other measures, and yes, for a lot of this time I was hanging around kids as my daughter was growing up (and since she’s fully grown, I still don’t shy away from any place).
What's an empty suit to do ?
You have a great idea, too bad the CDC won’t do the studies that have been requested for years.
I could have written the exact same thing.
And that empirical fact has served me well in my life as a young man, a parent and now an old geezer with stage 3/4 emphysema.
ALL my troubles are either my own fault or the result of a weakening immuno system.
Running for governor of IL?
People in Boston don't amble about in a "climate" similar to people in say, Arizona or Minnesota.
But still ... a simple test, easily and cheaply conducted.
He could stomp around in Vietnam a bit.
I would like a choice. I spend a lot time in the woods and fields, and it becomes a huge pain in the butt to treat your clothes with permethrin, then use 100% deet when you go out, and then inspecting yourself for ticks later. I'm sure that wearing clothes that have been soaked in permethrin is probably more risky than any Lyme disease vaccine.
I know friends and acquaintances who have gotten Lyme disease. It is a chronic condition and has residual effects for years after you have been "cured". It is like getting rheumatoid arthritis. Biologically Lyme disease is most similar to syphilis, being caused by a similar bacteria.
I want my vaccine for Lyme disease.
I’m sure there’s a punji pit or two still out there.
Are you marching behind Robert Kennedy? Lemmings over the cliff, lol. Good luck with that.
I am waiting patiently for our wonderful media to report on the CDC Spider whistleblowers “We are a group of scientists at CDC that are very concerned about the current state of ethics at our agency. It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests. It seems that our mission and Congressional intent for our agency is being circumvented by some of our leaders. What concerns us most, is that it is becoming the norm and not the rare exception. Some senior management officials at CDC are clearly aware and even condone these behaviors. Others see it and turn the other way. Some staff are intimidated and pressed to do things they know are not right. We have representatives from across the agency that witness this unacceptable behavior. It occurs at all levels and in all of our respective units. These questionable and unethical practices threaten to undermine our credibility and reputation as a trusted leader in public health. We would like to see high ethical standards and thoughtful, responsible management restored at CDC. We are asking that you do your part to help clean up this house! “
You can’t get Polio if you are dead from SIDS either. Did you know that SIDS is the leading cause of infant mortality in the US? Did you know that our so called experts recommend that newborn babies are ALL given a shot for Hep B on their first day of life? Unless their Mom is a heroin addict or they are sexually active there is absolutely no need for that. So, what good reason is there for using newborn babies as labrats? You do realize there are no studies on what this will do to ALL the babies.
I wonder how many “protesters” in today’s cold, rainy day, will continue to live because they were inoculated WAAYYY back there when they were a child, by the urgency of their lame, unprogressive parents.
It’s not the vaccines themselves( most of the time) but the scheduling that is the problem IMHO. Even our POTUS thinks so ....a 2 month old can not take vaccines against 8 or even more diseases in one 5 minute period....it’s not smart and not the way it was done WAYYYYY back when
I could have written the exact same thing.
I'm a skeptic. Pure and simple.
And any time when a "scientist" starts cooking the books, my skepticism rises dramatically.
When they aren't willing to discuss (or study) something, then science turns into religion and "consensus" turns into dogma.
And my religion is Catholicism, not pantheistic humanism.
And in my religion, before something is declared a dogma, it goes through a very, very rigorous and exacting process before it is accepted as an axiom (dogma).
It's an amazing thing that my religion has higher standards of scientific rigor than the "science" we see behind vaccinations and the "science" we see behind anthropogenic climate change.
Autism has a genetic basis as well as unknown factors. I have a disabled child, but I am not blaming a technology that has saved at least a hundred million lives.
