Tucker Carlson interviewed Robert Kennedy Jr on Tucker Carlson Tonight. Fox News Video Clip Here. You can thank him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
He introduced the “taboo” topic saying that experts “insist that vaccines are generally safe; that there is no link between vaccines and autism.” He added that there are skeptics.
Robert Kennedy, Jr. began by stating, “I’ve read the science, and the science is very clear—what you have to understand is that the vaccine regime changed dramatically around 1989. The reason it changed is that Congress, drowning in pharmaceutical industry money, did something they’ve never done for any other industry, they gave blanket legal immunity to all the vaccine companies so that no matter how sloppy the line protocol, or how absent the quality control, no matter how toxic the ingredient, or egregious the injury to your child, you cannot sue them.
“So there no depositions, there’s no discovery, there’s no class action suit. All of a sudden vaccines became enormously profitable.
“In ’87 it was implemented and then there were a gold rush by the pharmaceutical industry to add new vaccines to the schedule.
“I got three vaccines; I was fully compliant. I’m 63 years old.
“My children got 69 doses of 16 vaccines to be compliant. And a lot of these vaccines aren’t even for casually communicable diseases, like hepatitis B which comes unprotected sex or sharing needles.
“Why do we give that to a child the first day of their life?
“And it was loaded with mercury.”
Carlson restated Kennedy’s statement. “And we do give that to children.”
Kennedy: “We continue to give it to them. The mercury has been taken out of three vaccines in this country, but it remains in the flu vaccine—48 million flu vaccines.
“And it’s vaccines all over the world.
“It is the most potent neurotoxin known to man that is not radioactive.
“How can we inject that into a child?
“If you take that vaccine vial and break it, you have to dispose of that as hazardous waste. You have to evacuate the building. Why would we take that substance and inject it— ”
Carlson: “So the argument, as you know, is that group immunity, herd immunity is what you’re searching for. And yes, there are down sides, but in the big picture, everybody benefits.”
Kennedy: “When they talk about herd immunity, they’re talking about casually contagious diseases like measles.
“Last month, a group of very prestigious scientists with a robust study of African children, studied the DPT—Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis vaccine, which is the most widely distributed vaccine in the world. Virtually every kid in Africa gets it.
“They did a vaccinated vs unvaccinated study, which has never been done. And what they found was that…kids who got the vaccine, little babies, were ten times as likely to die in the next two months as the kids who did not.
“And what they concluded was—and this study was funded by the Danish government, and again these people are very bulletproof scientists. They said that that vaccine is killing more people than diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis combined.
“So we need to do those cost-benefit analyses on every vaccine.”
Carlson: “So why has the point you’re making, that doesn’t seem crazy, been so discredited?
“Could it be because the spokesmen for that point of view tend to be actresses from Hollywood or actors who don’t seem to know much about the topic and are against all vaccinations?”
Kennedy: “I think that cohort is out there, but it’s very, very small.
“I’m called ‘anti-vax’ all the time because the pharmaceutical industry is so powerful both with the media—they give $5.4 billion a year to the media, and they’ve gotten rid of the lawyers, so there’s no legal interest in those cases. They have really been able to control the debate and silence people like me.
“I’m very grateful to you for having the courage to allow me on the show and talk.
“This is the second show in ten years that’s allowed me to talk about this.
“The other one being Bill Maher, which doesn’t take advertising.”
Carlson: “I just think it’s interesting, and above all, I think you ought to be allowed to ask legitimate questions without being attacked because I think that’s the basis of democracy.”
Kennedy: “We ought to be having a responsible debate. A debate that doesn’t scare people, but a debate that is real and it’s based on science.”
Carlson: “Well, I hope you start one.”
