Thinking Moms on Whether Facebook is Broken

Facebook-like-button1NOTE: The very idea that social media is "broken" because it allows those of us with vaccine injured children to have a conversation about the topic is laughable. Social media has changed the world - altered politics - tumbled careers - aaaahhhh, now I get it.  This is in line with the current Oprah bashing going on after her "speak the truth" message at the Golden Globes.  In America there is only one topic - ONE - that is verboten, and that's vaccination injury.  You can be SWMSWFCBLGBTABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ but you can NOT be someone who questions vaccines. Thanks to Thinking Moms Revolution for this terrific post excerpt.

This was written in response to an opinion piece published in the Washington Post entitled “The Anti-Vaccine Movement Shows Why Facebook Is Broken.”

I think it’s rather amusing that everyone in the mainstream media and medical community spends so much time (and wastes so much money) trying to analyze why we are the way we are, as opposed to just asking us. The idea that we have some secret network, where we share information and plot to destroy the world (all the while balancing caring for our special-needs children, navigating services, attending IEP meetings, and driving to therapies and medic appointments) is rather funny.

There is no code word for anti-vaxxers (or their groups). Some of us are against all vaccines, some against the corrupt science, some against one vaccine or ingredient, some who just believe in safer schedules or who fight for informed consent and most allow anyone to be a part (in fact wish everyone would stand up for a better system).

There are no secret documents. We share the same information available to you, that your doctor can access (although most will not bother). We testify publicly, in front of legislators, on television, and through our writing. We hide nothing, including making our lives public and sharing videos, pictures, and even medical records because we know that we have no means of influence other than the truth.

There is no funding, no lobby, no billion-dollar budget. We are lucky if we can take care of our families given the extent of care they need. We aren’t living in fear of some truth; no, most of us had to face the truth the moment our lives flipped upside down and we watched something happen to our children–the ones who seized before our eyes, the ones we held as they screamed for days, the ones who never took another breath. That is our truth. THAT is why we do what we do. Read more here.

I think social media was probably intended to make a lot of money. The problem has been of course while the pharma could buy out a financially weakened mainstream media in the US and intimidate them into silence in the UK with the help of government, they couldn’t stop people talking, and people have found a new way to talk.

I read the article in the Washington Post and I think they have it backwards.

The people that are mostly just on the internet are Pharma's attack dogs. In 'real' life when I talk to people about vaccines about 90% of the time they have concerns about vaccine safety. Sure there is that 10% that think vaccines are heavensent and go crazy with the name calling but more often people tell me their concerns.

I think it is clear that social media was intended to distract, not empower. The latter has happened and that's why it is "broken". The masses were not to become more educated, stronger and more connected (beyond sharing family photos and discussing nonsense). We have become a threat instead of a docile well controlled herd.

Vaccination injury is one of 3 verboten topics. The other two are chemtrails and who did 9-11?

Sen. Mike Folmer (R) of Pennsylvania truly believes that parents have a constitutional right to informed consent, especially when it comes to vaccines.

Sen. Folmer announced on his page January 3, 2018, that he will be introducing “Informed Consent” legislation that would require patients and parents to be given information regarding the risks and supposed benefits of vaccinations. He also plans to introduce a resolution to Congress to repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) that gave vaccine manufacturers complete “immunity” from being sued when their vaccines cause serious harm or even death. Since this bill was passed Billions of taxpayer dollars have been awarded to those who have been seriously injured, many completely paralyzed, and some who families received the money because the vaccine killed the person. He feels that the 1986 NCVIA limits patients and parents ability to refuse vaccinations and violates the 5th Amendment of the US Constitution, which would allow injured parties to seek due process under the law.

I was glad to see that he too has seen the “writing on the wall” in the fact that since the childhood vaccine schedule was expanded in the 1980s the rates of autism have skyrocketed along with the increases in the number of vaccines given to our children.

Sen. Folmer was also willing to mention that reanalysis of the original data from the 2004 CDC study “Age at First Measles-Mumps-Rubella Vaccination in Children With Autism and School-Matched Control Subjects: A Population-Based Study in Metropolitan Atlanta” showed a direct connection between earlier MMR vaccination and autism leading to causal associations. Sadly, I wish that Sen. Folmer did not mention the fact that a CDC scientist Dr. William Thompson, one of the authors of the original papers, came forward in 2014 admitting that he and his colleagues committed fraud by attempting to destroy original data and manipulating the result to eliminate the evidence showing that the vaccine was causing autism. You can watch Sen. Posey asking Congress to investigate this crime back in 2015 here: https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4554834/rep-bill-posey-cdc-whistleblower

Sadly since then, Congress has done nothing while the autism rates in America keep getting worse! To me, this shows intent to neglect the lives of our children in this nation!

I stand with Sen. Mike Folmer to make TRUE Informed Consent a constitutional right and for the repeal of H.R. 5546 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act.

Make vaccine makers pay for the lives they destroy!
