Cosmetics entrepreneur Kat Von D has said she isn’t vaccinating her expected child. She then brilliantly shut down critics and the following talking points of the vaccine industry:

“but like herd immunity”

“This is why measles is coming back”

but like herd immunity

Kat Von D shuts down vaccine apologist. Jezebel

The all-knowing Jezebel and its resident genius Anna Merlan then responded with this whopper of a lie:

That is, again, not true. Vaccines are one of the most regulated medical products in the world, and in the United States, vaccine policy is overseen by a safety commission (albeit one that is often dismissed by vaccine opponents because it’s backed by the FDA, which they believe is evil.) 

FDA’s commissioner is clueless, but FDA does not oversee vaccine policy. That would be the CDC, which also recommends vaccines. It’s precisely because vaccines are over-regulated that they are unsafe. Like the rest of us anti-vaccinationists and vaccine skeptics, Kat Von D knows vaccines are not regulated like other products such as cosmetics.

Vaccines are a captive market whose supply and demand is determined by the government. They’re mandated at the state level for school entry. And if you get hurt, you don’t sue the doctors or pharmaceutical companies. You sue the Department of Health and Human Services. It is precisely because of awful state and federal laws expanding their use that an independent commission is needed in the first place.

Now to end on a lighter note, please enjoy these tweets from “vegans” who are pro-vaccine despite the aborted fetal tissue in vaccines:
