Who exactly was sitting at home thinking to themselves, “I cannot decide whether or not to vaccinate my child until Joe, Kerry and Kathleen Kennedy tell me what to do!!!!” Neither Joe, Kathleen nor Kerry is a vaccine expert, an autism expert, a published author on vaccine science and neither one has spoken at length with parents of vaccine injured children. Nevertheless, these three self styled vaccine science and autism pros felt compelled to weigh in on the subject in which they have no expertise, shamefully disparaging their brother in the process.
I know a little about this. Many years ago my parents, Bob and Suzanne Wright, publicly denounced me and my concerns about vaccine safety. It was a big mistake and it lives forever. Siblings, colleagues, board members, friends and family members were horrified. Many disagreed, some vehemently so, with my vaccination concerns but all agreed a public condemnation of a family member is a base betrayal of what family means. We reconciled but was long, long, road getting there.
In the case of Joe, Kathleen and Kerry Kennedy the needless and shameful public betrayal of their brother is impossible to understand. Did they actually believe they would convince anyone to vaccinate? Could they be that self important? Who knows? But I guarantee you that their sloppy op -ed, filled with errors, did not convince ONE parent to vaccinate their child. The gist of their post is that in many countries (notably not the USA) many children suffer and die from communicable disease. Neither Joe, Kathleen nor Kerry did their homework. Bobby Kennedy speaks about the American system of checks and balances in vaccine safety and the lack of independent oversight in the vaccine approval process. In what way does Americans asking for independent vaccine safety oversight create a measles catastrophe in third world countries? It is the same kind of ridiculous logic applied by those who argue against the teaching sex education in schools “because it will make children have sex.” Untrue and flat out dumb.
Joe, Kerry and Kathleen are all emotion and no logic in their post. They go on and on and on about the history of measles, smallpox and the “dedicated professionals” at “WHO” and the NIH. I know, I know, it's both funny and sad. First of all, WHO is basically employed by Pharma! WHO never meet a vaccine they didn't like! WHO still actively campaigns for the continued use of mercury in vaccines because it’s cheap. The fact that mercury is a well known and potent neurotoxin bothers them not in the least. Think about this...the Soviet Union banned thimerosal in 1990! The Soviet Union, a nation that doesn’t exactly have high consumer safety standards, banned thimerosal 30 years ago! But in countries and entities owned by Pharma, like the USA, the subject of mercury in vaccines is off limits. If one dares to question vaccine safety in the USA and one is immediately labelled a flat earth, anti science heretic whose only goal is to see the maximum amount of children die from contagious disease! And they call us emotional! The great irony is that ALL research on the subject shows that parents who have concerns about vaccine safety are the most highly educated. So education is the enemy?
