Fight Crooked Media, Donate To The Donald Trump Campaign!

1469158615512

Progressive and feminist bloggers who spread dangerous lies on behalf of the crooked vaccine injury cover-up are slamming Donald Trump for giving money to Jenny McCarthy’s vaccine-induced autism charity Generation Rescue and to exonerated British doctor Andrew Wakefield’s Strategic Autism Initiative.

They include:

-Forbes’ Emily Willingham who lied about the existence of federal autism research results and lied that Dr. Wakefield is responsible for neglecting a gastrointestinal connection to autism. She went on a long hiatus and even called herself a “former journalist” before Forbes resurrected her after winning an industry-funded “award.”

-Tim Mak of The Daily Beast which called autistic men pedophiles

-Mark Sumner of the DailyKos which banned comments acknowledging vax-autism link, to which AI responded by banning comments linking to Kos (Note: that applies to comments on this post)

-Brad Reed of Raw Story which AlterNet re-ran, because all these sites are practically the same anyway

How should we – as people opposed to the child-poisoning lies that are the US vaccine program – respond?

Simple: Donate to the campaign to elect Donald Trump president so he can end the autism epidemic! Crooked Hillary will do all she can to make it continue. Unlike the mole-and-Democrat-run Age of Autism blog, Autism Investigated is fully committed to making this happen. So donate to Donald Trump’s campaign, and Make America Great Again!

The wall just went 10 feet higher, and the vaccine program just went six feet under.

Autism Investigated Shuts Down Bernie Sanders, Censorship Candidate

BN-MG647_Bernie_DV_20160125145318

I think the evidence is overwhelming that vaccines do not cause autism. And it really is a little bit weird for Trump – who, I presume, has no medical background – to be raising this issue. And obviously it is a concern. When somebody like that says it, you’re gonna find thousands of people now who are gonna hesitate to give their kids the shots, and bad things may happen. – Bernie Sanders, The Rachel Maddow Show, September 17, 2015

Donald Trump is the only good presidential candidate on the vaccine issue, that’s why Autism Investigated endorses him. However, there is only one candidate who trashed Trump for speaking out for vaccine safety despite similar concerns expressed by the two doctors in the same GOP debate, who calls for censorship of the issue, who said the evidence against vaccines causing autism is “overwhelming” despite being approached with the overwhelming evidence for an association by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and another physician and who even called unvaccinated children killers. That candidate is far-left extremist, race-baiting demagogue, Democratic Party presidential candidate and ice cream flavor poster boy Bernie Sanders. And because he encourages censorship, any comments of support for his candidacy will not be allowed at Autism Investigated from here on out.

Look at a quote from him on his Senate page: “if I have a kid who is suffering from an illness who is subjected to a kid who walks into a room without vaccines that could kill that child and that’s wrong.” For someone so concerned about protecting children who would have adverse reactions to vaccines, he sure does not think it is wrong for children to be needlessly poisoned as a result of the vaccine program’s lies.

At the time Sanders made that statement, the governor of Sanders’ home state of Vermont said he would veto any bill that would rid the state of its philosophical vaccination exemption. But two days after Sanders formally announced his presidential candidacy in the Democratic Party primary on May 26th, the governor signed into law a bill that did just that – making Vermont the first state to repeal its philosophical vaccine exemption. California would shortly follow.

Most bizarrely about Bernie Sanders, he seems to be surprisingly well-liked among vaccine skeptics considering he’s a bona fide vaccine liar. The managing editor for the self-styled vaccine safety and Democrat-edited blog Age of Autism actually wrote that “Sanders represent[s] a chink in the armor of the status quo” of censorship, even though he called for censorship of this issue. Even more disturbing is how Autism Investigated has come under fire by Bernie supporters on Facebook for supporting Trump. And when you remind them what Bernie Sanders has said, they completely dismiss it. Here is what one person responded when Autism Investigated pointed out that Sanders likened Republican candidates to mental patients and trashed Trump for speaking out for safer vaccines:

Trump IS crazy…so Sanders sayingthat isn’t really mocking…it would be stating facts..I know as a Trump supporter…those are something you don’t ever get to hear…facts!

When this post about Trump reiterating his stance for vaccine safety in a recent interview was shared in the vaccine skeptic Facebook group AWAKE California, a Bernie troll came in and called people “fascists” and “bigots” for supporting Trump before she was finally banned. The lies that Trump is a bigot, racist or fascist are commonly pushed by Sanders and his supporters, who have also backed the violent shutdown of Trump’s rally in Chicago. One of Sanders’ terrorists even tried to rush Trump on stage in Ohio before being stopped by Secret Service. If Sanders’ supporters have done all this, it’s not difficult to imagine them infiltrating vaccine skeptic forums to mislead people into thinking Sanders is a good candidate when he is the polar opposite.

The bottom line, however, is this: any candidate who supports shutting down the only candidate who supports vaccine safety and discussion of vaccine safety altogether does not deserve a forum of support on any website that supports vaccine safety and certainly not in Autism Investigated’s comments, Twitter feed or Facebook threads. When DailyKos banned linking vaccines to autism in its discussion threads, Autism Investigated responded by banning any comments that link to Kos to prevent readers from posting over there only to be banned for their views. Autism Investigated will do the same here by trashing any comments and blocking any Twitter accounts that post anything supportive of Bernie Sanders in AI’s discussions.

That said, anybody can still comment here regardless of which candidate they support, just take your support for the ice cream man elsewhere. For example: if you submit a comment citing leftist blogs like HuffPo and Salon to falsely portray Sanders as some sort of crusader against big pharma even though both sites actively censor vaccine safety, your comment will be canned. There are plenty of places like the Age of Autism blog where you are more than welcome to advertise your support for Sanders, as that site already has a habit of praising the horrible candidates who are the Democrats with its nauseatingly obsequious outreach to Hillary Clinton.

If you are upset that you are being “censored” for your support of Bernie Sanders, don’t be angry with Autism Investigated. Be angry with Sanders for supporting censorship of this issue and causing this new rule to be imposed on all his supporters here at Autism Investigated. Big pharma has given him more money than any of the remaining Republican candidates for a reason. And in case you love Sanders so much that you have to see him pushing censorship of the vaccine issue to believe it, here is the video of him doing just that:

Bernie Sanders is now shut down at Autism Investigated. No feeling the Bern here.

Threats Prove Cartoonist Right About Vaccine McCarthyism

Editor’s Note: After two years, The Epoch Times’ blog section is now closed as the site is undergoing a redesign. All Epoch Blogs from Autism Investigated are still archived. There is exciting news to come about The Epoch Times pertaining to Autism Investigated.

By Jake Crosby

Above is a cartoon originally published on DailyKos by Keith Knight, author of the K Chronicles. Knight drew the above cartoon to bring attention to what he called the “New McCarthyism” – the hypocrisy and double-standard surrounding discussions about vaccines.

As anyone could have predicted, the thread was soon awash in nasty comments including threats so bad he eventually caved and removed the whole cartoon – proving Knight right about Vaccine McCarthyism.

“I took it down myself. A few comments crossed the line with me, so I took it down,” he reportedly said of the cartoon. “I can take the personal threats…but once it goes beyond that — ”

Making clear how inflammatory the vaccine issue was even when compared to other inflammatory subjects, he said:

“I may do a follow-up at some point, but for now I’ll stick to less inflammatory subjects like abortion, Israel/Palestine, and gun control.”

Abortion clinics have been bombed, a member of Israeli parliament has been called a “war criminal” at an academic panel discussion, and the National Rifle Association’s famous slogan is “I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands. Yet in Knight’s own experience, the vaccine issue is even more inflammatory than these other inflammatory issues.

The Daily Cartoonist weighed in on the situation with the following commentary:

“Expressing unpopular opinion is not for everyone. Side affects vary but may include pissing off people who think of themselves as tolerant, inflaming internet comment sections or receiving unwanted threats to oneself or family.”

Such threats were apparently fair game to one blogger who deeply despised Knight’s cartoon:

“The only heartening bit is how most of the commenters contribute to giving Knight a new sphincter.”

Direct those same kinds of threats at that very blogger, and watch the incitement turn to self-pity.

While the DailyKos took no apparent action against the trolls making the threats before the entire post was taken down, it has its own unique style of censorship like those of other left-wing, big government sites. The Huffington Post enforces censorship by removing articles without any explanation or warning. “Throwing a writer to the wolves” is what Salon did by retracting Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s “Deadly Immunity” article, according to the site’s own founder. But the preferred method of censorship at DailyKos is banning any commenter who argues vaccines cause autism.

If DailyKos was not directly involved in the removal of the post or even in the incitement of trolls (both of which I have a hard time believing), the site certainly created the perfect environment for the New McCarthyism Knight denounced to take root by banning people who would otherwise support him in the comment thread. Unlike at DailyKos, expressing different views will not get anyone banned from commenting at Autism Investigated; making threats will get a commenter banned.

So the cartoon is now posted here, and is here to stay.

Addendum: After one commenter’s reported experience with having comments censored at DailyKos, a decision has been made to not allow any comments that link to that site. If DailyKos will shut down discussion about topics routinely discussed here, then there is no reason to link any readers to that site only to be banned from commenting. Unless DailyKos overturns its policy of censorship, any submitted comment that links to DailyKos will be deleted. No exceptions.
