Peter Hotez Whines and Lies About Autism Investigated Meme on Houston TV

Scene from television station with Autism Investigated meme in background

After Chelsea Clinton came to Peter Hotez’s defense against Autism Investigated’s meme and other “threats”, he continued his whining and lying on Houston television. Hotez said anti-vaccinationists have a “twisted ideology,” and that his autistic daughter is under attack. In actuality, he is using her as the subject of a book he is writing to further his denial of her vaccine-caused autism. The television statement even said there were “implications of violence” the moment they cut to the meme, even though the meme implied nothing of the sort.

Local doctor targeted in vaccination debate

HOUSTON – Dr. Peter Hotez has spent his whole life working on vaccine development, but he world renown doctor now finds himself under attack.

“The anti-vaccine lobby has really stepped it up, both the frequency of their attacks against me and the tenor of the comments,” said Hotez.

The attacks are coming via Twitter, email and phone calls.

“They’re more personal, more mean spirited,” said Hotez.

They’ve even hurled implications of violence says Hotez, but this time the attacks have hit a new low, attacking his daughter who suffers from autism.

“It is very hurtful, but I try not to respond directly and I stick to the scientific evidence,” said Hotez.

Hotez says Texas has become ground zero for the anti-vaccine lobby. He claims their mission is to convince the world vaccines cause autism, and they are using his daughter Rachel as proof.

“There is no controversy, the science is clear,” said Hotez. “There is no link between vaccines and autism. It’s completely phony.”

Hotez is fighting back with a new book, “Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel’s Autism”. He opens up about his daughter’s journey and how the family has dealt with Rachel’s autism.

The viciousness of the online attacks caught the attention of Chelsea Clinton who retweeted Hotez and offered her support for him and vaccination.

“I do have a lot of support in the science community,” said Hotez. “What I’m not hearing so much is in the way of support from the United States government.”

He says if Texas allows the anti-vaccine lobby to continue spreading lies, it’s children who will be at risk.

“They’re actually putting children in harms way just to support their twisted ideology and that’s something we have to go up against,” said Hotez.

Chelsea Clinton Defends Peter Hotez From AI Meme “Threat”

Autism Investigated Note: Watch Milo’s 12 Steps to Destroy the Alt-Rightand read his new book Dangerous for a solid background on the “Alt-Right” which Autism Investigated has nothing to do with.

Chelsea Clinton defended Clinton-tied vaccine developer Peter Hotez from a recent barrage of “threats.” One of those so-called threats was a meme created by Autism Investigated and then shared on Twitter.

Peter Hotez’s sharing of Autism Investigated’s meme of himself is what would culminate in recent “Vaxhole of the week” Chelsea Clinton coming to his defense on Twitter. Hotez’s initial sharing of the meme appeared to prompt some hate mail he received, which he would share on Twitter two days later.

Chelsea Clinton apparently took Hotez’s remarks about a “minefield” literally.

Hotez didn’t correct her tweet about “threats.”

So Autism Investigated’s editor confronted Chelsea Clinton with one question.

Autism Investigated will keep readers posted about any updates. Whether she responds or not, the Clintons are still beholden to pharma.

Autism Investigated Announces 2016 Election Awards

Autism Investigated’s first presidential election was this year, so AI decided to have special awards dedicated to the biggest autism stories of the election cycle.

Scientist of the Election: Dr. Andrew Wakefield6a00d8357f3f2969e201b8d238373d970c

He may have been fighting the good fight for decades, but this year Dr. Andrew Wakefield met with our now-president-elect who stood up for vaccine-injured children in the GOP debate. Dr. Wakefield played a crucial role in informing people that Donald Trump was the only candidate who would tackle the autism epidemic:

For me, this is a one-issue election. That is the future of this country invested in its children, and if we have mandatory vaccination in this country, in this state as they have in California, then it’s all over. And we will achieve that objective by 2032 of 1 in 2 children with autism. There is one person – whatever else you may think about him – who has expressed the fact that he knows that vaccines cause autism, that vaccine damage is real, and this is an issue that will never in his mind lead to mandatory vaccination either statewide or stateswide. Now I had the privilege of meeting him the other day to discuss this precise issue, and he is on our side. Whatever else you may think, I want you to bear that in mind. I’m not going to tell you how to vote; you are free-thinking Americans. But I will say is that we will not get a second chance. Within two years, I would say, of Hillary Clinton getting in – if she gets in – there will be mandatory adult and child vaccination across the entire country.

Autism Investigated reminded readers of what Dr. Wakefield said every time it live-streamed the presidential debates.

Scoop of the Election: Dr. Wakefield completely exonerated.

Autism Investigated was the first to uncover evidence that put the final nail in the coffin of the UK General Medical Council’s findings against Dr. Andrew Wakefield. In the below video at AutismOne’s annual conference, he gives credit where credit is due and promised to give “very, very serious consideration” to pursuing the restoration of his medical license.

In a later interview on Canadian radio, he reiterated Autism Investigated’s reporting that all the findings against him were overturned four years ago and that had he been given the money to appeal, he would still have his license. When questioned by Autism Investigated about why he still didn’t have a medical license despite the overturned findings, the UK’s General Medical Council responded that it would consider “any further supporting evidence” Dr. Wakefield provides should he apply for re-licensure.

Quote of the Election: Donald Trump speaks out on vaccine-autism link.

In the September GOP presidential debate, Trump made the following statement that would lead to Autism Investigated’s formal endorsement of his presidential campaign:

Autism has become an epidemic. Twenty-five years ago, 35 years ago, you look at the statistics, not even close. It has gotten totally out of control.

I am totally in favor of vaccines. But I want smaller doses over a longer period of time. Because you take a baby in — and I’ve seen it — and I’ve seen it, and I had my children taken care of over a long period of time, over a two or three year period of time.

Same exact amount, but you take this little beautiful baby, and you pump — I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child, and we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me.

Just the other day, two years old, two and a half years old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic.

I only say it’s not — I’m in favor of vaccines, do them over a longer period of time, same amount.

But just in — in little sections. I think — and I think you’re going to have — I think you’re going to see a big impact on autism. 

Irony of the Election: Barack Obama claims there aren’t reasons to avoid vaccination…except when there are.

nn_01sgu_obama_1309091

In response to NBC’s Today Show co-host Savannah Guthrie, Barack Obama gave the following stance on vaccination (italics mine):

“The science is, you know, pretty indisputable. We’ve looked at this again and again. There is every reason to get vaccinated, but there aren’t reasons to not.”

But then in that same interview, Obama gave as a reason to vaccinate the protection of people who have reasons not to vaccinate (italics mine):

“…the folks who can’t get vaccinated – small infants for example or the people with certain, uh you know, vulnerabilities that, that can’t get vaccinated – they suddenly become much more vulnerable. They’re counting on us to create this protective fence because most people have been vaccinated.”

Good riddance to Obama’s failed presidency.

Dank Meme of the Election: THE DEPLORABLES

The meme was created in response to Hillary Clinton characterizing half of President-Elect Donald Trump’s supporters as a “Basket of Deplorables” and includes President-Elect Trump himself along with Vice President-Elect Mike Pence and some of their most loyal supporters.

It is also re-posted under Autism Investigated’s livestream of Donald Trump’s second presidential debate with Crooked Hillary.

Event of the Election: Donald Trump is elected president, and deplorables prevail.

If you haven’t yet watched his victory speech, watch it.

President-Elect Trump’s inauguration will be live-streamed at Autism Investigated.
