Robert Kennedy’s Monty Python “Suicide Squad”

monty python's life of brian

By Jake Crosby

Perhaps the movie scene most analogous to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. striking the chapters on autism from his book on the mercury-based vaccine preservative thimerosal comes from Monty Python’s Life of Brian – a parody of early Christianity. During the title character’s crucifixion by the Romans, the “Judean People’s Front” show up and appear to come to his rescue.

Unfortunately, the Judean People’s Front’s “Suicide Squad” has other plans.

Fighting the Romans by committing suicide is akin to what Kennedy did by removing the chapters on autism from a book intended to fight thimerosal’s use in vaccines. All the more ironic is that Kennedy held off on publishing his book for a year in the hopes of persuading HHS to completely remove thimerosal from vaccines during that time. Instead, thimerosal remains in vaccines, and the autism chapters have been taken out of his own book. He has now broken the promise he made last year at AutismOne to publish his book by leading his own “Suicide Squad” – a parody of his former advocacy against thimerosal.

To quote Brian – “You silly sods!”

At least the unedited manuscript of Kennedy’s book can still be found at the end of this post.

    this situation is certainly no comedy to me Jake .

    If you want to compare this vaccine holocaust scenario to a film from the cinema , I’d go for Schindlers List or smthg in that vain .

    Perhaps though RFK doesn’t quite live up to Mr Schindler as it turns out .

    My first metaphorical comparison?

    Forget this compeansation malarkey .


    Prosecutions prosecutions prosecutions of ALL the guilty parties !

    • Regardless, both will be pushed further out of reach thanks to Kennedy’s shenanigans.

        How so?

        • “How so?” – How not?

          • No really, how so?

            As far as I know, Kennedy’s first venture into the thimerosal foray was in 2005, with his Deadly Immunity article. That , according to Wikipedia, “.. contained numerous major factual errors and, after a number of corrections, was ultimately retracted by…”.

            That was 9 years ago Jake. 5 years after the Simsonwood meeting was even held, and 8 years after a ’97 resolution from the US Congress requiring the FDA to review the thimerosal content of approved drugs and biologics.

            It’s been 17 years since that ’97 resolution, and children are still receiving mercury in vaccines. And not a single responsible person has faced a criminal charge of any kind.

            Personally, I don’t see how Kennedy latest shenanigans are anything but irrelevant.

            • You can’t look at it just as a matter of time, Barry. “Deadly Immunity” was an unusually strong deviation from the standard message, which has been much less effective.

              To know what that message is, one need look no further than a typical David Kirby piece, Age of Autism post or SafeMinds press release. That message can just about be summed up as – “What’s going on? Why don’t the feds do anything for us?” All these people/groups seem to do is ask questions they already know the answers to while pretending they don’t know. This is to the detriment of every honest anti-thimerosal activist out there.

              Then you look at who the main instigator of this so-called strategy is, and suddenly our message appears to have been hijacked all these years by pharma infiltration.
