After Terrorist Threat, “Vaccine Diplomat” Peter Hotez Incites More Hatred

Peter Hotez hates our right to reject vaccinations. Hotez called Americans who do a “hate group” one month after a terrorist threat to mass murder vaccine skeptics. He is in denial of his daughter’s vaccine injury, and thinks he’s above those he represents in a foreign land.

David Gorski of all bloggers helped further prove that Hotez is no diplomat. Just recently, Autism Investigated renewed its call for the State Secretary to fire Hotez from his diplomatic position in Israel for calling vaccine skeptics and anti-vaccinationists a “hate group.” Meanwhile, Gorski couldn’t keep his mouth shut. So he reacted with the below tweet.

Peter Hotez likes Gorski’s tweet.

Peter Hotez proves he doesn’t take his job seriously. He has no respect for the State Department. “Vaccine Diplomacy” as he calls it is an oxymoron. The man thinks many of his own constituents are a “hate group.” Hotez feels the same way about vaccine skeptics in Israel too.

He even wants thugs to “fight” for him. It doesn’t matter to him that there was a recent death threat against vaccine skeptics, including one doctor in particular. After all, Hotez incites such hatred.

Peter Hotez and David Gorski like this tweet too.

Peter Hotez is the wrong person to represent American interests. Yet he does so in a part of the world marred by so much conflict. He’s using the North Korea summit to push vaccine “diplomacy.” That should scare everyone.

Tell Secretary Pompeo to Oust Peter Hotez from Israel for “Hate Group” Lie

State Secretary Mike Pompeo, Israel National News

Mike Pompeo was sworn in as the 70th US Secretary of State last month. The US embassy in Israel was relocated to Jerusalem three weeks ago. The US-Israel Binational Science Foundation published a puff piece about board member Peter Hotez in its newsletter two weeks ago. In light of these developments, Autism Investigated renews its call for the State Department to oust him from the foundation’s board. Contact Secretary Pompeo and demand Hotez’s firing!

Honorable Secretary Mike Pompeo,

I am writing to ask that you remove Dr. Peter Hotez from the US Israel Binational Science Foundation. I have previously written the department under your predecessor Secretary Tillerson, but no one has addressed the substance of my complaint.

Peter Hotez has proven himself unfit to represent our country in any diplomatic capacity. At an academic keynote lecture he delivered in February, Dr. Hotez called organizations like Texans for Vaccine Choice and the National Vaccine Information Center “a hate group” and said “They are a hate group that hates [our] family and hates [our] children.”(1)

Whatever your opinion is of these specific groups, they are not hate groups. They seek to raise awareness for issues concerning vaccine safety and the right to opt out of school vaccine mandates for children.

Dr. Hotez is also extremely hypocritical to judge the intent of such groups when he is a member of the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine). The IoM produced reports proclaiming vaccination safe that purported to be scientific. In reality, IoM report authors had already decided in secret meetings to produce that conclusion at the behest of their federal sponsors before looking at any scientific evidence.(2)

Regardless of one’s position on vaccine safety, however, Dr. Hotez disqualifies himself from being worthy of such a position of international diplomacy. His zealotry, disregard of other viewpoints and contempt for people who do not share his ideological commitment to vaccination is a disgrace to our wonderful country and everything that we stand for. His representation contradicts President Trump’s commitment to work on vaccine safety with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and is counter-intuitive to the historic relocation of our embassy to Jerusalem. We should not have Peter Hotez representing US interests to any foreign partner here or abroad.

Sincerely,

Jake Crosby, MPH
