Dec 28, 2016, New York Times: Your Sister Won’t Vaccinate Her Son. Can You Help Him?
By Kwame Anthony Appiah
But the anti-vaccination movement is not, alas, a bastion of rationality. So, assuming his parents don’t have a change of heart, I fear your nephew may have to wait. The good news is that he doesn’t have to wait to turn 18; in Oregon, you’re free to seek medical procedures without parental consent as soon as you are 15. Until then, you can continue to be the voice of sage counsel.
We’re told that “Kwame Anthony Appiah considers readers’ ethical quandaries.” Really?
Appiah clearly missed the boat with this dismissive response. His religious-like zeal for vaccinations leads him to one of the most IRRATIONAL explanations.
Like virtually everyone in the mainstream media, Appiah refuses to consider that there could be any problem with our ever-expanding vaccine schedule. This total failure to honestly investigate both sides of the vaccine controversy is the hallmark of press corruption and apathy.
“Vaccines are safe, vaccines save lives” is the worn-out mantra used by every newspaper and TV network, but regardless of the censorship, the truth is coming out. There are just too many sick kids in America today, and too many worried parents who just don’t buy it anymore.
In a Dec 28, 2016 piece in the New York Magazine Adam Raymond wrote, "Despite broad disagreements on politically relevant conspiracy theories, Democrats and Republicans did find an issue to unite them — vaccines and autism. The poll found that 28 percent of Democrats believe 'vaccines have been shown to cause autism' and 29 percent of Republicans do, too."
Seriously? Add up those two figures and it's quite obvious that a huge number of people DON'T BUY THE OFFICIAL DENIALS.
Anyone who looks briefly into the controversy has to realize that what the NY Times and every major news source puts out is propaganda, not authentic journalism.
A student of the vaccine/autism debate has got ask why the press NEVER brings up these critical topics:
Eli Lilly's thimerosal "study" in 1929
Julie Gerberding leaving the CDC and going to Merck after years of promoting vaccines
The volumes of research on vaccine side effects by well-credentialed experts from leading universities
The absence of a vaccinate/unvaccinated study
The absence of a study showing us a comparable rate among adults
The absence of a study on regressive autism
The absence of a study on the cumulative effect of the all the vaccines our children are required to receive
The absence of any liability on the part of doctors and vaccine makers
The failure of doctors to do any pretesting to determine which children may be susceptible for a vaccine reaction
The dozens of cases of vaccine induced autism that the federal government has compensated
Kwame Anthony Appiah is typical. His grade school level response here shows he's been programmed to defend vaccines while covering up the real issue.
