I was quite concerned about the article from TIME Magazine on Feb 11, 2015. The writer, Joe Matthew, called for the outing of parents who don't vaccinate in the piece, Unvaccinated Families' Addresses Should Be Made Public.
"The names and addresses of parents who won't vaccinate their children should made available on the Internet through a public registry
"Shouldn't we know where they live?"
The last several weeks of news coverage of a measles outbreak that was blamed on someone who wasn't vaccinated has been unbelievable. Hysterical mainstream news reports everywhere have called for banning unvaccinated children from school, jailing parents, revoking the medical licenses of doctors who don't vaccinate, along with calls for a federal law overriding all state laws allowing personal and religious exemptions.
We're told all children MUST be vaccinated for the good of the community. There is no recognition anywhere that children might be harmed by vaccines. Likewise there is also a total lack of awareness, compassion or interest in hundreds of thousands of children who can't speak, can't behave, can't learn and will never live independently, and who weren't here twenty-five years ago. Many, many parents in the autism community believe their children were disabled by the mandatory vaccination schedule.
We have national media outlets demonizing parents who exempt their children from vaccines. There isn't even an attempt to be fair and balanced. Ed Berliner at NewsMax has called exempting parents "stupid" on several occasions.
We're told all children must be vaccinated for the good of the community. No one who is struggling with a vaccine-injured child is ever covered in these stories. It's like they don't exist.
Our individual freedoms don't extend to vaccine choice. There we must comply or face ridicule, condemnation and retribution.
All for the good of the state? No one is willing to allow even a little coverage of those who challenge the one-size-fits-every-child demand for compliance? Seriously, I came to the conclusion that this is medical fascism. I have been waiting for some rational voice in all this craziness.
And then someone posted this article from 1940 on my Facebook page:
Typhoid is "endemic Jewish Disease," Nazis Say in Issuing Warsaw Ghetto Rules
BUDAPEST (Dec. 15, 1940)
New traffic regulations for Warsaw street cars and busses are announced in the Warschauer Zeitung, Nazi organ in Poland.
Street cars and busses marked "Aryans Only" may no longer stop to take on or discharge passengers in the Jewish reservations of the city. Street cars and busses marked "Jews Only" may no longer make any stops in the non-Jewish sections of the city.
Where it is necessary for street cars or busses of either category to stop on the heavily guarded boundaries of the Jewish reservations, special double platforms have been constructed, one for Jews and one for Gentiles. Jewish street cars or busses must be emptied of Jewish passengers before they emerge from a Jewish reservation into a non-Jewish district.
All these measures have been taken, the Warschauer Zeitung explains, "to avoid any possible danger to the health of the non-Jewish population by coming in contact with Jews."
As the same newspaper recently explained, announcing the introduction of the special Jewish streetcars and busses, Jews have been found by the Nazi authorities to be "typhus carriers." The disease, the paper added, has been found to be "endemic among members of the Jewish race."
Jews have been forbidden to enter the central post-office of Cracow, according to the Zeitung. The only post-office they will be permitted to enter in the future is Branch No. 14, in the suburb of Podgorze.
