I was scrolling through Twitter yesterday morning and came across this Tweet from ABC News disparaging Robert Kennedy Jr for his work regarding vaccination. Here is the link to the story on ABC Anti-vaccine leaders targeting minority becomes growing concern at NYC forum. Take a look at the hubris in the sentences below. The tone is dismissive in the extreme. You can hear the writers' (public relations that is) eyeballs rolling around their heads as if speaking to and about morons. It's classic pharma spin within a "news" organization that used to be a standard of excellence:
Like climate change, vaccine science is settled. By all conceivable logic, a medicine that prevents disease outright, rather than treating symptoms, should be universally embraced. Nonetheless, a handful of anti-vaccine leaders, who mistakenly believe that vaccines cause autism, continue to fight a ground war of disinformation, spreading propaganda to skittish new moms and dads and encouraging parents of children with autism to blame their children’s diagnoses on vaccines.
This is the event from which Al Sharpton bailed, by the way, instead of acting on behalf young African American children. I responded to their Tweet, as you can see in the image below. Then I did a quick search for the day Robert's father was assassinated and found this video. He was killed in California - the bellwether state for vaccination mandates in 2019. How is it the nation's news and political leaders, within the Democratic party particularly, the Kennedys' party, now openly scorn and ridicule Robert for his work on behalf of all of us? It's a disgrace. And it's dangerous too. I think this openly invites sanctioned violence. Make a person a threat and all bets are off. "...a growing concern..."
May God protect Robert Kennedy Jr..
