The Battle for California, Part 5 - California Democrats Pass Fugitive Slave (I Mean, Anti-Vaxxer) Act and Guarantee Their Own Destruction!
Nothing leads evil to its own destruction quicker than its own apparent success. It's how God leads the wicked to their demise.
Consider the slave-owning South prior to the American Civil War. A trickle of slaves, perhaps 1,000-5,000 were escaping each year (out of an estimated population of 3,000,000 slaves), beginning their lives in the North, and speaking freely of what they endured under the lash of their slave-masters.
The escaped slaves presented no existential threat to slavery. For those in the North who didn't quite know what to think about slavery, they were allowed to continue to exist in their state of uncertainty. Maybe slavery was good, maybe it was bad, but it was something that happened someplace else. They were not a part of it.
But that wasn't enough for the South. The escaped slaves drove them crazy. Just like the 1.5% of California schoolchildren who have a philosophical or religious exemption drive the pro-pharma forces crazy. You see, most doctors claim that even if you believe in the mythical concept of "herd immunity", it's somewhere around 90-93%. I'm not a math teacher, but even if you take 1.5% away from 100%, I calculate it at 98.5%. Check my math to see if I've got it right.
This Monday, the California Senate voted 24-14 in favor of SB 277, which would strip California parents of religious and philosophical exemptions to vaccines in order for their children to attend public school, something so draconian that even China and Russia have no similar laws. The measure is going to Governor Jerry Brown's desk for his signature. (As a footnote, Jerry Brown's father, Governor Pat Brown, signed the current parental exemptions into law in 1961. It's a great shame that yesterday's soulful, civil rights democrats have morphed into today's soul-less corporate democrats. Somebody needs to lead them back to their historic support of the rights of the individual.)
The fact is, those parents with philosophical or religious exemptions drive people like Senator Richard Pan and his pharmaceutical cronies absolutely nuts, just like escaped slaves drove their Southern masters crazy. Many people credit the Fugitive Slave laws as hastening the start of the Civil War and the end of slavery. By the very act by with which they attempted to gain complete control, they created a destabilizing force which wiped then from the face of the earth.
Think of what the effort to pass SB 277 has cost its proponents. In California, almost the entire Republican party has come out against it, as well as the Nation of Islam, and the Church of Scientology. (Yes, a stranger alliance you would be hard-pressed to find!) Before this happened, I bet the California Republican party would have gone along with this idea. It's a little like the English general who after the Battle of Bunker Hill in the Revolutionary War said of their costly victory, "a few more such victories will put an end to British rule in North America!" Our numbers will only continue to grow.
May the passage of SB 277 and the ensuing firestorm it will cause finally end the silence of vaccine injury, reveal the truth of how the pharmaceutical industry has harmed a generation of children, lead CDC whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson to testify before Congress, give hope to honest scientists committed to truth, and healing for those who have been so grievously injured.
