Alison Singer: Autism Parents’ Jewish Ghetto Police

Fake autism charity/pharma front group founder Alison Singer has just made an appearance on Last Week Tonight With John Oliver (who famously said that America does not want Donald Trump to be president). So Autism Investigated has decided to re-run this 2011 Age of Autism post about her by the Deplorable Autist himself. It includes updated links to the vaccine-autism link science she denies exists, the truth behind her “foundation”, and the fact that she prevented autism in her younger child by spacing out of vaccines. In other words, she knows what caused her older daughter’s autism yet collaborates with the pharmaceutical industry to help it injure and kill more children for profit.

Alison Singer: Autism Mom, Pharma Wife

By Jake Crosby

Alison Singer: autism parent, IACC seat usurper, industry front group founder, recent guest on The Dr. Oz Show, and now – loyal Pharma-funded wife. Of course, that’s what she’s always been. We just didn’t know it, until now.

Mrs. Singer is married to Dan Singer, a longtime employee of McKinsey and Company: a global management consulting firm. Singer’s firm sponsors one of the awards given out by the British Medical Journal, which published and even endorsed British Pharmaceutical Industry sock puppet Brian Deer’s false allegations of fraud against Dr. Andrew Wakefield. McKinsey is not Pharma, you might say. True to an extent, but McKinsey’s commitment to the industry is significant. In the “industry practices” category of “client service,” McKinsey and Co. has a whole page on “Pharmaceuticals & Medical Products,” where they offer a wide range of consultation services to the pharmaceutical industry on everything from prescription pharmaceuticals, to over the counter medicines, to biotechnology and medical products and diagnostics. In 2006, in the company’s quarterly, an article was even run entitled “Avian flu: Expanding global vaccine production.” The avian flu vaccine is preserved in 49 micrograms of mercury, approximately twice that of a season flu shot.

But on January 12 McKinsey did more than consult for the pharmaceutical industry; they partied with its leading vaccine spokesman, millionaire vaccine industrialist Dr. Paul Offit. An email invitation sent out by Alison Singer’s group, the Autism Science Foundation, read:

“Please join us for the book launch and signing

Underneath that message is a bio of Paul Offit and next to it is a picture of Offit’s book cover. Below the book cover, it says:

“All proceeds from sales of Deadly Choices will be donated to the Autism Science Foundation”

It’s more than a little odd that McKinsey would be promoting the work of the Autism Science Foundation (ASF). Ever sensitive to the prestige and standing of its partners, McKinsey would seem a more natural partner of Autism Speaks, the Park Avenue charity of the autism world rather than an upstart run out of Singer’s garage (actually, ASF rents Singer a desk and receptionist from a “Sunshine Suites” property in Noho). Understanding their ASF promotion requires understanding McKinsey’s longstanding role in the autism-vaccine controversies.

And McKinsey partners have been closely connected to the debate, up to the highest levels of the firm. Up until recently, McKinsey was headed by Ian Davis, younger brother of GlaxoSmithKline board of directors member Sir Crispin Davis, and twin brother of Sir Nigel Davis – the judge who denied appeals from MMR litigation claimants to have their legal aid continued.

Though Ian Davis would eventually step down from his position at McKinsey in 2009, it was not before Alison Singer resigned from Autism Speaks. Her resignation was prompted by the charity rightfully condemning the IACC’s backhanded removal of research into some pharmacologic etiologies of autism from its mission. Mrs. Singer’s justification was that there are limited funds for autism research that could be better spent, even though Singer supports such funding being dumped into the money pit of genetic research, and even though not only pharmacologic, but environmental factors overall, have been horribly understudied by comparison.

So she founded a front group posing as an autism charity – the Autism Science Foundation – with millionaire pharmaceutical industrialist Dr. Paul Offit. ASF is the only autism research organization founded on the basis of the science it won’t pursue (it’s been “asked and answered, vaccines don’t cause autism”) than that it will do. And despite the fact that she was originally appointed to a public seat on the IACC as an Autism Speaks representative, she was allowed to keep her position as representative of her own corporate fringe offshoot, effectively usurping Autism Speaks’ representation on the committee.

During the time Singer resigned from Autism Speaks and began her front group, Ian Davis was still head of the company where her husband continues to work. Here’s a brief sequence of events. For more than 20 years, Dan Singer has been a loyal employee of McKinsey, joining the company out of Harvard Business School in 1989 and climbing the ladder until being promoted to director in 1994. That same year, he married his Harvard and Yale sweetheart, Alison Tepper, now Alison Tepper-Singer, whom we all know as Alison Singer. She would take up a job at NBC later that year and the couple would have a daughter together.

Then in 1999, Singer quit her job as a vice president of the network when that daughter was diagnosed with autism. She recently told CNN about her decision about giving MMR to her next child:

“I split the vaccine for my second daughter.”

Her second daughter now remains neurotypical. And the choice to vaccinate against measles, mumps and rubella separately seems not to have harmed Singer’s second daughter in any way. So Alison Singer not only followed Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s advice (and conceivably is benefiting from it), but was even an advocate for his cause in the popular press – at least in one instance.

When NBC ran an episode of “ER” in 2001 that featured a child who died of the measles presumably because he was not vaccinated with MMR, Singer reacted with outrage. According to The New York Daily News:

“Alison Tepper Singer, a former vice president in NBC’s desktop video division, faulted the “ER” episode for its “complete belittling of another viewpoint,” she told The News. Singer resigned from NBC in 1999 when her older daughter was diagnosed with autism.

“It was so irresponsible and so callous and so heartbreaking for parents who are dealing with this issue that I found it sad,” she said of the “ER” episode.”

Then in 2003, Ian Davis became McKinsey’s worldwide managing director. In other words, he became Dan Singer’s boss. Did this change of leadership bring a new kind of influence into the Singer household? Only the Singers know for sure. But one thing is clear, that Alison Singer, after previously splitting up the MMR for her younger, neurotypical daughter and speaking out against a biased TV show, began changing her public position about what she thought might cause autism.

Now, I already have a good idea what Alison Singer might say to all this, her reading of the “science” convinced her otherwise. In response to a January 14, 2010 article I wrote about Kevin Leitch speculating that guilt over giving his daughter a vaccine that triggered her autism drove him to finding solace in the neurodiversity movement, Singer wrote the following comment on the Leftbrain/Rightbrain blog:

What a strange story. Many parents question whether vaccines are involved in autism because of the media coverage of the issue, but then they read the science and realize the studies are there and the science clearly indicates no causal role for vaccines. Kev, although I find your point of view refreshing and your posts unique, I dare say you are hardly alone at coming to this conclusion. Jake will have to try harder next time.

 

What a strange position for her to take. Not only did she not read my article but there was already plenty of purported “research” in 2001 claiming to disprove a link between MMR and autism, virtually all of which was thrown out as useless junk science in an international review by the Cochrane Collaboration in 2005, which also conceded the evidence of the vaccine’s safety was “largely inadequate.” Many of those sorts of studies published since 2001, including the CDC’s own study, were actually positive findings reported as negative ones. Perhaps most disturbing of all was the confirmation of vaccine-strain measles virus in the terminal ileums and cerebrospinal fluid of children with autism and bowel disease in the O’Leary paper published in Molecular Pathology and the Bradstreet paper published in JPandS respectively (contrary to the propaganda machine, the later Hornig paper did not falsify these findings). Finally, one would think the HHS concessions of children like Bailey Banks and Hannah Poling who developed autism after their vaccines becoming public knowledge would have ended this debate altogether.

I don’t know what “science” Ms. Singer is referring to, but scientifically, consumers have far more reasons to fear vaccines and the MMR vaccine in particular in 2011 than they ever had back in 2001. Whatever motive the Singers’ would develop for no longer believing the MMR causes autism, it was certainly not scientific. If the twin brother of a person who denied justice to personal injury claimants and the younger brother of a man helping to facilitate a smear campaign against one of the claimants’ expert witnesses became my boss, I would not want to say anything potentially favorable about that witness for fear of jeopardizing my job. I certainly would not want my wife to do the same, either.

Alison Singer had a very different opinion by the time NBC President Bob Wright founded Autism Speaks along with his wife Suzanne compared to her opinion in the Daily News piece in 2001. Whatever changed Mrs. Singer’s mind about what causes autism, it likely happened within a time period no sooner than 2001 but probably no later than 2005 when she joined Autism Speaks. Ian Davis becoming head of McKinsey occurred right in the middle of that, also happening at around the same time his brother Crispin joined Glaxo’s board of directors. She has kept this connection between her husband’s company and the pharmaceutical industry to herself.

Alison Singer cannot honestly call her group an “autism charity” when its activities are focused on promoting and defending drugs (ie vaccines) for the pharmaceutical industry. She has actually traveled with Paul Offit to Atlanta to speak at an immunization conference on how to compel parents to vaccinate recklessly. Autism Science Foundation is a corporate front group with an agenda that predetermines its approach to autism. Its non-profit status should be revoked.

You’re right, Micah. You are no “white savior,” you’re an autistic instigator.

Autism Investigated Exclusive: Micah Fletcher’s Fake ID

He’s at it again!

Days after confronting a homeless maniac possibly resulting in the murders of two innocent people, Portland MAX train stabbing survivor Micah Fletcher adorned us with yet more of his weaponized autism. Fletcher posted a Facebook video encouraging people to give money not to the families of the deceased, but to two uninvolved girls he and the two murdered men were stabbed “saving”. He even diagnosed Portlanders with a “white savior complex” because of their generosity to him and the families of the men whose deaths he likely helped instigate (Daily Mail):

Fletcher, 21, released a Facebook video on Wednesday to thank everyone who had supported him but urged them to turn their attention to the two teenage girls.

He lamented the fact that more had been given to him and the white adult males who died saving them, saying it was ‘immensely morally wrong’. 

‘We in Portland have this weird tendency to continue patterns that we’ve done forever and one of them is this same old, just to to put it bluntly, white saviour complex.

‘I think it’s immensely, immensely morally wrong and irresponsible how much money we have gotten as opposed to how much support, money, love, kindness that has been given to that little girl.

‘We need to remember that this is about them…they are the real victims here,’ he added, sharing a link to an online fundraising page set up in their names.

But by the time of Fletcher’s cringey plea, an affidavit had already been filed and approved in an Oregon county circuit court completely disproving that those girls were in any direct danger. They even moved their seats, completely removing themselves from the situation. Yet because they’re black and one’s a Muslim, they are every bit as much victims to Fletcher as the two white men who were actually stabbed to death.

Following Fletcher’s video, an absurd $118,000 were reportedly raised for the unscathed bystanders for “mental health” services. Never mind that every other person on that train car also heard what they heard and saw what they saw, but there’s no GoFundMe for them.

Here’s a proposal for Micah Fletcher – if you really believe that two uninvolved girls are as big victims as the murder victims, why don’t you give your own donations to those girls? You think there is something wrong with strangers trying to help you pay off your medical bills and make up for lost earnings from missed work due to your injuries. So why keep taking their money while lecturing the rest of us on what to do?

Turn down all the money you continue to receive, and give it all to the girls you feel so much pity for. Meanwhile, let everybody else just donate to the families of the actual victims of the tragedy you had a role in escalating. That way they can at least cover the funeral expenses for their deceased loved ones while not having to hear that two uninjured passengers are equally victims.

Like all social justice warriors, Micah Fletcher loves to lecture everybody else about what they should do to make the world a better place. Yet it’s the people like Fletcher who are the last ones to do what they tell us we should do. As the below video demonstrates, Fletcher has years of experience in such lecturing in the form of cringe-winning slam poetry.

INFOWARS: STUDY UNWITTINGLY LINKS VACCINES TO AUTISM

Pregnant woman gets vaccines. Vaccines cause fevers. Fevers are linked to autistic babies.

“A study of a large group of children found a link between raised risk of autism spectrum disorder and their mothers reporting fever during pregnancy. The link was strongest with fevers reported during the second trimester.”

“The study – led by the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City, NY – also found that the risk of autism increased in line with the number of fevers reported after 12 weeks of gestation – rising to 300 percent higher risk [of autism] with reports of three or more fevers.”Next, here is a one-word item from the World Health Organization web page, Vaccine Safety Basics. The item comes under the heading of “minor vaccine reactions,” and applies to every vaccine: the reaction is FEVER.Pregnant woman gets vaccines. Vaccines cause fevers. Fevers are linked to autistic babies.

Here is a CDC list of vaccines given to pregnant women, under various conditions: HepA, HepB, Flu, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis), meningococcal, polio, Rabies. Fever, as a typical and minor adverse effect, would be expected and ignored for ANY AND ALL of these vaccines.

Accepting the finding of the new study, cited above—routine vaccination for pregnant women is linked to an increased risk of autism in their babies.That’s it in a nutshell.

No doubt if you pointed out the inevitable conclusion to a doctor or a researcher, they would try to worm out of it. They would say, “Well, we’re not talking about fever resulting from vaccines. We’re talking about fever coming from an infection in the pregnant woman.” Really? Why don’t you think the vaccine is producing fever? It’s causing an infection, and the immune system is reacting. Fever is an entirely expected consequence.

Note: I’m not saying the creation of fever is the only reason vaccines cause autism and various types of neurological damage. I’m saying here is a new connection.

And mainstream medicine and the mainstream press will ignore it completely.

PORTLAND STABBINGS: Did Autism Cause Two Men To Die?

Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche and Ricky John Best, murder victims of the May 26th Portland MAX Train Stabbings

All too often the murders of innocent victims are misrepresented thanks to political correctness. The May 26th Portland train stabbings have been misreported as three men being stabbed and two dying to protect black and Muslim girls from a white supremacist murderer on a commuter rail. However, the “white supremacist” was a crazy homeless guy ranting incoherently at no one in particular, the girls moved their seats before the murders happened and the stabbing victims were actually defending each other. The already-tense situation may have also been inadvertently escalated to its deadly outcome by lone stabbing survivor and autist, Micah Fletcher.

It’s wrong of course to say that autism causes people to commit murder. It’s also wrong to dismiss someone’s point of view because of their autism as has happened to Autism Investigated and its own Deplorable Autist. It is not, however, wrong to suggest that autism can cause someone to incorrectly assess social situations. But usually when that happens, the stakes aren’t so high: you offend someone, you get rejected by a girl. The consequences can be frustrating, but it’s standard.

Tragically, the stakes were so high in the case of the Portland MAX Train tragedy that the fates of the two murdered passengers may have been sealed by the actions of the third passenger stabbed. That passenger, autist Micah Fletcher, took it upon himself to get into a shoving match with the demented maniac Jeremy Christian. Apparently, Fletcher treated him like the petty schoolyard bully he wasn’t – not the mentally ill, homeless lunatic who just threatened to murder anyone who followed him off the train.

There is no doubt Fletcher acted with the best of intentions by standing up for his fellow passenger, but he may have only made it worse for everyone. Now Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche and Ricky John Best are dead and Fletcher is himself recovering from a near-fatal stab wound. It is a tragedy that perhaps did not have to happen.

Deplorable Autist Confronts Dave Rubin’s Free Speech Panel on Vaccine Safety Censorship

rubinreport_show_card

At an event discussing free speech on campus, the editor of Autism Investigated confronted a panel moderated by The Rubin Report host Dave Rubin on the topic of vaccine safety. The discussion was very informative and enlightening, but all three panelists were clearly uncomfortable discussing the topic mentioned before them.

Express Yourself or Suppress Yourself? Free Speech on Campus. UT Objectivism Society – Panelists: David Rubin, Steve Simpson, Faisal Saeed al Mutar – 04/18/17 at 1900 – Edgar A Smith Auditorium

Event sponsored by the Ayn Rand Institute

Full video: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/102277417

PANELISTS:

Faisal Saeed Al Mutar — Founder of the Global Secular Humanist Movement and Ideas Beyond Borders

Dave Rubin (moderator) — Creator and host of “The Rubin Report”

Steve Simpson — Editor of “Defending Free Speech” and director of Legal Studies at the Ayn Rand Institute 

From the event description:

College used to be grounded in the inviolate principle that each of us should confront new ideas, speak our minds, and learn. Has that time passed?

This year alone we have seen a riot at U.C. Berkeley and violence at Middlebury college over controversial speakers.

Instead of “express yourself,” a new view seems to be taking hold: “Suppress yourself—or I’ll do it for you.”

What is happening to free speech on campus?

On Tuesday, April 18, join the Ayn Rand Institute, the University of Texas-Austin Objectivism Society, Young Conservatives of Texas, and our distinguished panelists for a special discussion focused on this question.

Autistic Obama Appointee Ari Ne’eman Plugs Violent, Far-Left Terror Group Antifa

Black Bloc Ari

Autistic presidential appointee Ari Ne’eman has given a plug to New York City Antifa on Twitter. Antifa (or “anti-fascist”) is a gang of masked extremists. They violently assault Trump supporters all over the country. Antifa shows up at events featuring speakers they don’t like and then “shuts them down” with mob violence. They justify doing so by claiming they are “shutting down fascism,” considering Trump a fascist. Ne’eman agrees.

The Evil Election 

Antifa succeeded in shutting down gay writer Milo Yiannopoulos at UC Berkeley. They attacked his fans and rioted out of control. Just recently, an Antifa member was arrested for the brutal assault of a Trump supporter with a bike lock at a free speech rally. None of these events were criticized by him. Yet he slammed the free and fair election of Trump.

If Trump’s election is “so profoundly evil and mendacious”, how evil and mendacious is it to Ne’eman to put on masks and attack people with opinions different from your own? Given that he just plugged Antifa on the premise of condemning terror, not so much.

No Unwanted Side-Effects Like Christiaan Tarbox, Please

Neckbeard Autist Christiaan Tarbox, who wrote Minnesota vs. the measles- An essay by a supposed ‘side effect’ in the Sun Post

While you parents justifiably fret about your children being a full-syndrome autist unable to talk or shit independently, there is another vaccine side-effect you should fear them having. That would be your son or daughter ending up a “high-functioning”, pimple-nosed, neckbeard autist like Christiaan Tarbox. After all, who wants their kid going through life being a socially repugnant loser who thinks they owe nothing to society by refusing to fit in? Not me, if I have any.

But in a local Minnesota paper, serial killer look-alike Tarbox wrote this gem:

I’m not going to go into the science of vaccines and the fallacies of the attitudes against them, but to see reports of communities being tricked into believing that life-saving vaccinations “cause” autism isn’t just offensive to me as an autistic man, but it’s downright evil.

Autists like Tarbox are so fragile, so insufferably snowflake-y that any serious discussion about preventing the fastest growing pediatric neurological disorder is taken as personal insult. Tarbox is in fact a perfect example of why all autism should be prevented. Would you really want your kid to avoid a two-week rash only to end up like this?

Growing up with autism was not easy by any stretch. Even though I was a bright kid, I suffered significantly in my emotional, mental and social development. I had little to no friends, I had a poor grasp on social cues and niceties, my interests were narrowed and borderline obsessive, and every day ranged from being a mild inconvenience to an indescribable nightmare.

But then he had his amazing transformation guys!

I managed to move out, go to college, get my degree, own a car, live in my own apartment, get a job, become an award-winning journalist [Autism Investigated Note: because craptacular journalism deserves craptacular awards], find a stable and ever-growing network of amazing friends, and carve out a true niche for myself in Minneapolis’ artistic community.

“move out”? “go to college”? “get a job”? Wow!!!!!!!!!

He moved out of his parents’ basement! It’s a miracle.

No mention of any romantic endeavors surprise surprise. Judging by that stunning visage, Tarbox’s willie is as dry as the Sahara Desert during a record drought. The only vagina he probably ever saw was the one that shat him into existence. The female autists get way, WAY more pussy than he does.

Christiaan Tarbox is a sorry caricature of how low the bar for success is set for even the most able of us autists. Who can blame parents for preferring unvaccinated normal children to atrocious spectacles like him?

The only real reason he bought a car was because this stopped showing up to his house:

Make America Neurotypical Again.

Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated Studies Back Online

008ad6c

From JB Handley:

What if a study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children was published, removed, republished in a different journal, removed again because of online misinformation, and then republished (today) after the misinformation was cleared up? Well, then you’d have the first study of vaccinated versus unvaccinated children officially online and in a journal (as of this moment).

If you’re confused, you’re not alone. And just to clarify: this study has NEVER been retracted, only removed by two journals, and re-published by the second one…Starting to think this is the study that just “won’t go away!”

And, if that’s not confusing enough, please note there are actually TWO separate studies on unvaccinated children in the same journal. The second one is linked in my first comment, and it concerns premature infants.

 

When the papers were first removed, one notoriously dishonest blogger named David Gorski (a.k.a :”Orac”) had nuclear organism. He also wanted to make very clear that he learned about the initial deletion of papers from yours truly, using a new nickname he has coined:

So what did I overlook? Well, thanks to The Gnat (and if you don’t know who The Gnat is, just look at the comments of yesterday’s post) I realized that I missed half the fail. Here’s what I mean:


Yes, that’s the conspiracy crank site InfoWars, and yes InfoWars is eating this study up, interviewing Celeste McGovern, who is promoted as a “vaccine expert.” I had never heard of her before, but it turns out that she writes for Claire Dwoskin’s Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI), one of the two antivaccine groups that funded Mawson’s study. (The other was Generation Rescue.) As expected, she is antivaccine to the core.

What I learned, though, from following The Gnat’s link is that there was a second paper published in the very same bottom-feeding predatory open access journal by Mawson using the very same survey dataset, Preterm birth, vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders: a cross-sectional study of 6- to 12-year-old vaccinated and unvaccinated children. Clearly, Mawson believes in the concept of “minimal publishable unit” (or MPU, as we call it) in which you divide the data into as many papers as you can and still get manage to get published, hence his publishing two papers instead of one.

Amusingly, when I clicked on that link, I got a “not found” error message, but as of yesterday the paper was still in Google Cache, and I saved a copy for your edification. [LINK] This led me to check the link to the other paper, and guess what? It was gone yesterday, too

Yet after the studies re-appeared today, all Gorski said was this:

The first study appears to be back on the OAT website…

Poor Gorski, he celebrated way too soon.

THE KU VAX KLAN WANTS BLACK PEOPLE TO HANG

Black-lynching

In response to the measles outbreak among Somalis in Minnesota justifiably afraid of the MMR vaccine, the Boston Herald wrote an editorial concluding:

These are the facts: Vaccines don’t cause autism. Measles can kill. And lying to vulnerable people about the health and safety of their children ought to be a hanging offense.

Who do they want to hang? Why, people like Abdulkadir Khalif, who wrote the following about what happened to his son:

A few days earlier, Abdimalik got his 18 months MMR vaccine as scheduled. I still remember that day. His mother was coming back from his appointment and passed my place of work to give me a ride home. Abdimalik was sitting in his car-seat, very quite, subdued and absent minded. As I took my seat I glanced back wondering if he was asleep or not. He was seated squarely in his seat but was looking straight ahead at a point in space. I called out to him and he did not respond. I shook him and he did not move. I looked at my wife and asked what happened and she explained where they came from and that everything went well. She explained how he thanked the nurse as she put a sticker on his chest before the injection in order to build rapport. After that we rode home in silence and life was never the same again.

They also include people like Sheila Ealey, who shared the following story of her son:

After the shot he stopped walking, he started crawling, he started banging his head against the wall, the floor, anything he could. He stopped imitating with his father, he was making no eye contact, and he didn’t want you to touch him or hold him.

There is a very high autism prevalence among Somalis in Minnesota and an elevated prevalence of regressive autism in black children. This could be explained by the fact that black children are more likely to be damaged by the MMR vaccine, according to data analyzed and then trashed by the CDC per one whistleblower:

I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.

In a statement read to Congress by Bill Posey, the whistlebower Dr. William Thompson elaborated on the conspiracy:

All the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September ’02 not to report any race effects from the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the coauthors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four coauthors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard-copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can. However, because I assumed it was illegal and would violate both FOIA and DoJ requests, I kept hard copies of all documents in my office and I retained all associated computer files. I believe we intentionally withheld controversial findings from the final draft of the Pediatrics paper.

The vaccine industry destroyed data showing black children are harmed by vaccines and wants black parents to hang for resisting vaccination.

The white coat is the new white hood, and the vaccine industry is the new Ku Klu Klan: the Ku Vax Klan.

The New American Calls Bullshit on Measles Exploitation

Measles Outbreak Prompts Outrage Against Anti-vaxers

Written by 

An outbreak of measles amongst a small unvaccinated population in Minnesota could spell trouble for the anti-vax community as it may prompt yet another push for forced vaccinations by vaccine advocates. The media is using the latest outbreak to criticize anti-vax groups and tout the “benefits” of vaccinations, despite the science that links vaccines to a number of long-term health issues.

In the United States, every child by the age of 18 is expected to receive a total of 69 doses of 16 different vaccines, most of which use controversial ingredients. Many parents of autistic children have concluded that these vaccines and the vaccination schedule utilized in the United States play a role in the rise of autism and have sounded the alarm for other parents to think twice before administering vaccines to their children. Unfortunately, those skeptics then become prime targets whenever there is an outbreak of a disease for which a vaccine exists.

On May 8, for example, CNN reported that of the 48 confirmed cases of measles in Minnesota, 41 are Somali-Americans who “bought into the fears that vaccines cause autism, and thus eschewed getting vaccines for their children.” CNN cites Kristen Ehresmann, director of the Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Prevention and Control Division at the Minnesota Department of Health, who claims that the Somali-Americans fell prey to the anti-vaccine groups that targeted them after it was discovered in 2008 that a disproportionate number of Somali children were receiving special education for autism. According to the Washington Post, a University of Minnesota study found that Somali children were about as likely as white children to be identified with autism, although they were more likely to have intellectual disabilities.

Ehresmann added, “I want to be very clear that this outbreak has nothing to do with being Somali. It’s just the sheer fact of being unvaccinated.”

In its overzealous effort to defend vaccines, CNN cited a pro-vaccine expert whose claims seem to undermine assertions that vaccines and autism have no relationship. Michael Osterholm, regents professor and director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota and a former state epidemiologist for Minnesota, said, “Between 2000 and roughly 2008, the Somali community in Minnesota actually had some of the highest vaccination rates for 2-year-olds of any population in the state.”

As observed by Barbara Loe Fisher, founder of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC),

The truth is, nobody knows how many vaccine victims there are in America, how many of the 1 in 6 learning disabled children; or the 1 in 9 with asthma; or the 1 in 100 who develop autism; or the 1 in 450 who become diabetic, can trace their chronic inflammation, disease and disability back to vaccine reactions that have been dismissed by public health officials and doctors for the past century as just “a coincidence.”

And even when scientists are forced to confront the data, they simply dismiss it on the grounds that there is not enough evidence to establish a “causal” relationship.

But sadly, it seems the scientific community is not interested in conducting any studies that might establish a causal relationship. According to public testimony of Dr. Heather Rice at the Vermont Department of Health, “No true prospective, randomized and controlled study of health outcomes of vaccinated people versus unvaccinated has ever been conducted by the U.S. by CDC or any other agency in the 50 years or more of an accelerating schedule of vaccinations.”

Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says measles “is so contagious that if one person has it, 90% of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected.” But if the pro-vaccine community is confident in the effectiveness of vaccinations, then they should have no fears of contraction.

And whether the CDC can even be considered a trustworthy entity is another issue. According to a controversial 2016 film directed by autism advocate Dr. Andrew Wakefield entitled Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe, the CDC was behind a major cover-up of the MMR vaccine’s connection to autism. The documentary is based on revelations by CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, a former senior scientist at the CDC who admits that the organization destroyed evidence linking the MMR vaccination to autism.

But while Thompson’s revelations were groundbreaking, the mainstream media virtually staged an all-out blackout. Instead, it waits for stories of “measles outbreaks” to launch a media firestorm.

“Anti-vaccine groups blamed in Minnesota measles outbreak,” CNN reports. “Measles outbreak in Minnesota caused by vaccine skeptics,” an NBC News headline reads. “Unfounded autism fears are fueling Minnesota’s measles outbreak,” NPR opines. And a Fox News headline reads, “Minnesota measles outbreak: Officials say Somali families ‘targeted with misinformation.’” When it comes to vaccinations, all mainstream media outlets seem to be on the same side.

Perhaps that “bipartisan” approach to this subject is because the mainstream media is virtually owned by the pharmaceutical industry. According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the chairman of the World Mercury Project, which seeks a global ban on mercury, the press has been “coopted” by the pharmaceutical industry. Big Pharma, he says, is the single largest contributor to advertising revenue to network news divisions, at approximately $5.4 billion per year.

“A network news broadcast these days … is just a vehicle for selling pharmaceutical products,” Kennedy asserts.

In fact, it was the media’s silence on the CDC whistleblower that inspired Del Bigtree, an Emmy award-winning medical journalist, to produce Vaxxed:

I want the media to be held accountable for the weeks and weeks of covering a measles outbreak at Disneyland, terrifying people when only 644 people were affected. That’s .000002% of the people in this country, which effectively translates to zero, when one in 45 kids is now diagnosed with autism. I’d like the media to explain why it won’t cover the story of a top CDC scientist who admits they committed fraud on the MMR study when they discovered a causal link between the vaccine and autism, a disease that is accelerating so fast it could spell the end of our society. If that’s not a story, what is?

Thompson’s revelations did garner the attention of Florida Republican Congressman Bill Posey, who called on Congress to conduct a formal investigation into the allegations against the CDC in July 2015:

I believe it’s our duty to ensure that the documents that Dr. Thompson provided are not ignored. Therefore I will provide them to members of Congress and the house committees upon request. Considering the nature of the whistleblower’s documents, as well as the involvement of the CDC, a hearing and a thorough investigation is warranted. So, I ask Mr. Speaker, I beg, I implore my colleagues on the appropriations committees to please, please take such action.

Unfortunately, Posey’s request fell on deaf ears, while media portrayal of the Minnesota measles outbreak does not.
