A quicker guide to the ‘Green Vaccines’ Initiative

30 Nov

Some music to accompany this entry.

Over at AoA, Kent Heckenlively must be making the rest of the crew nervoous. Maybe you haven’t read his brand new idea for making the ‘green our vaccines’ initiative a political…um…’force’. To whit:

We’re not going to get anywhere with our current legal system because everything gets funneled into Vaccine Court. We’re not going to get far with the current media because they’re so heavily funded by pharmaceutical drug ads. We’re not going to get far with the medical community because they’re part of the machinery.

And don’t even get me started on the politicians. On one hand you have pharma handing out millions of dollars to politicians, and on the other you have parents of children with autism who are slowly bankrupted by this disease. Who do you think is going to have more money to ‘support’ the politician of their choice?

So Kent wants to tackle the legal system, the media, the medical community and politicians. And how?

In the months leading up to this announcement I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the necessary ingredients for a successful rebellion. Reading books on our own American Revolution has given me some guidance…

Cool. Nifty idea Kent. Tackle the legal system, the medical system, the political system and the media by reading a few books on the American Revolution. I think this is definitely a winner.

I’ve carefully scanned the article a few times (whilst wiping the tears of laughter away) but yep – that seems to be about it. And really, if we (god save us) look at this seriously for a moment what is it? Its a tacit admission that Kent doesn;t like the fact that these systems he wants to change don’t agree with him and his loon friends that vaccines cause autism. In fact, take a look at the comments and you’ll see its moved beyond autism to outright anti-vaxx. Is Kent proposing the very first anti-vaxx based political party? Some choice comments:

…thank you for the opportunity your statement gave us to refine the expression of our opposition to any form of vaccination.

I will never vaccinate again…

I no longer think any vaccine is safe…

There are no green vaccines. I am convinced.

I am in the camp that you can’t make vaccine safe ever

Finished listening to Pink Floyd yet? Good isn’t it?

    It would be the first Anti-Vaxx political pressure group.

    Kent’s language doesn’t sound that far off from that of the Tea Party movement. Check out these guys: they also don’t believe in vaccinations:

    I am not a Statistician but if vaccines did cause Autism- wouldn’t there be an even higher prevalence amongt the vaccinated population- plus a sudden rise in third world countries as their vaccine programmes became established? Plus if there was indeed a link with thimerosal would there not have been a massive drop in cases after it was removed from vaccines a few years ago?
    oh, and autism is worse than brain damage, deafness, blindness or death from measles???????????

    Heckenlively reports that there is a “green vaccines” initiative going on in Oregon. In an interesting coincidence, Oregon happens to have banned the products of Apothecure (responsible for the death of Tariq Nadama) after several deaths were caused by their products. Readers in Oregon should be sure to point out that AoA etc. are sponsored by Lee Silsby, which is in the same industry.

    Something else I have been thinking about: Supporting legislation, let alone guiding its creation, is well outside conventional activities for “non-profit” organizations like GR and AoA. It would be more normal and appropriate for a Political Action Committee. It deserves to be investigated whether AoA et al are in fact breaking the law through involvement with this legislation. In my view, even if it is not technically illegal, it is a conscious abuse of their non-profit status.

    I posted what I felt was a polite comment at AoA suggesting they raise money to fund the studies they claim are lacking in the vaccines/autism field, rather than on an initiative that attempts to remove parental choice, and that is ultimately doomed to failure.

    I was shocked, shocked! that it never appeared.

    The only green vaccine is no vaccine at all. Everyone is different and our bodies adapt and grow stronger with every infection, within reason. That is why things like h1n1 shouldn’t be vaccinated against, when it mutates, it will already be resistant to the vaccine you took.
