This evening (Tuesday, June 1st) is "The Anti-Vax Conspiracy" on Channel 4, which features Piers Corbyn, amongst others. It is also on "4Seven" at midnight. 

It'll be a hatchet piece, where they drag out ex-anti-vaxers, who will talk about how misguided they were, blah, blah, blah. Then they will talk about how dangerous anti-vax rhetoric is. Basically the amount of friends you have will be smaller on Wednesday. Fuck them.

Largely about Andrew Wakefield, accusing him of being the architect behind an antivax movement, even though he was hardly anti-vax since he was promoting individual jabs as an alternative to MMR.  Of course you wont hear about all the other evidence of vaccines causing autism, like the study by Dr. Thomas Verstraeten that was presented at the Simpsonwood conference in Georgia US in 2000 that the CDC then doctored before it was published — luckily the original version got leaked out and a congressman kicked up a fuss over it and the CDC had to admit in congress that they doctored the paper to hide the link between thimerosal and autism that it revealed (a dose-dependant association): http://www.autismhelpforyou.com/Simpsonwood_And_Puerto Rico.htm

 

They also complain about deaths of kids following vaccines being used as ammunition, as if these can only be a coincidence.  Well one good thing that came out of lockdowns last year was a drop in vaccination take up which caused a significant drop in infant mortality and reduces cases of SIDS to almost nothing:

There was no mention of David Icke, strangely, and Alex Jones only appeared very briefly. 'Anti-hate' Imran Ahmed got free reign to whip up fear and hate of anti-vaxxers. Inevitably, the documentary focused on the weaknesses (real or illusory) of anti-vaxxers, rather than their strengths.

The BBC’s not very impartial TV reviewer DAVID BUTCHER took the side of pro-vaxxers in his magazine review of that Channel 4 documentary, when he wrote: “The pandemic has given most of us a fresh appreciation for vaccines, but not for everyone. For vaccine sceptics, the last year has been a golden opportunity to peddle misinformation and conspiracy theories, as this one-off investigates...[the documentary hears from] Piers Corbyn...who argues that the vaccine rollout is on a par with experiments carried out in Nazi concentration camps. Amazingly, ANDREW WAKEFIELD, the disgraced doctor whose study “linking” vaccines and autism helped spark the movement, is still going strong in America.” (“Radio Times”, May 29th, 2021). 

 

Coincidentally or not, on the same evening as the Channel 4 documentary was a BBC4 repeat of a medical documentary on the history of the use of poisons as medicine: “Pain, Pus and Poison: the Search for Modern Medicines”, episode 3, BBC4, June 1st 2021). An example discussed was chemotherapy as a cancer treatment, which presenter MICHAEL MOSLEY regarded as basically a good thing. Were the BBC audience being manipulated into viewing vaccines as a beneficial poison?

In the Channel 4 documentary, Imran Ahmed spoke contemptuously about Andrew Wakefield (so much for ‘anti-hate’), and focused attention on Wakefield as if he was the only anti-vaxxer in history who mattered: “The guy who triggered all this; the granddaddy of the anti-vax movement; the first person to realise that you could target the vulnerable using misinformation about vaccines, and build a business, build a living, build a franchise off it – Andrew Wakefield...and he’s back, this time all over the Internet, telling us that you don’t need to wear masks; Covid isn’t real; and vaccines are dangerous”.

 

Wakefield was obviously targeted by Ahmed and by the documentary makers because of his controversial career, though I don’t see a problem with Wakefield’s recommendation that multiple vaccines are safer when taken individually, spread out over time, rather than together in one shot (not that I’m a fan of vaccines). 

 

Another critic of Wakefield interviewed for the documentary was FIONA GODLEE, the editor in chief of “The BMJ” (“British Medical Journal”, published by the NHS approved trade union, the BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION). 

 

Godlee spent a year at Harvard University as a ‘Harkness Fellow’ (the American reciprocal version of the Rhodes Scholarships) evaluating efforts to bridge the gap between medical research and practice. She served as President of the World Association of Medical Editors, whose founding conference was sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation, and held at the Rockefeller Foundation Study and Conference Center in Bellagio.

Looks as if I was proved right. Many times I publically stated you can't reason with hysteria. Millions of people thought they could still travel and take holidays if they complied. They are being disappointed. The weak link in the vaccine fraternity is such people are not motivated by logic, but by hysteria and delusion. So they trip themselves up by exposing themselves as chaotic and prone to going around in circles. How long will it take till the penny drops? I think in time tough questions will emerge and I hope that at the end of it, social media will be viewed in the same way nicotine was in the 1970s. By that I mean, social media made society dumbed-down, inactive, dependent and wrapped in a cocoon. All the closed pubs, banks, offices, libraries and even shops appears to have made society insecure. So insecure, that a global wave of psychosomatic, paranoid, hysterical delusion created a fake religion. Gradually even former believers are questioning if the King really does wear an invisible suit.

Called in my old library today. A female with all the signs of clinical hysteria asked me to fill in a form to enter. I declined and then found out one staff member had left her employment. Who could have predicted a flu virus would leave some jobless?

If you want to download it you can get it from concen tracker. 

 

I just flicked through it, the whole thing was a massive propaganda piece designed to characterise anti-vaxxes in the minds of the normies. They basically could have made this documentary 10 years ago because they didn't even mention any of the arguments or anything about covid realy. Just a shame so many people will be brainwashed by this.

 "The Anti-Vax Conspiracy" tried to portray the anti-vaccination movement as a sinister conspiracy in itself, as the programme’s title suggested. Speaking of Channel 4’s decision to commission the programme, Steve Boulton (the commissioning editor of Channel 4 News and Current Affairs) said: “This is a time of powerful anti-social conspiracy theories and we felt we needed to take a deep dive into one of the most troubling, a movement which threatens to damage public health just as science starts to deliver us all from a killer pandemic.” (Channel 4 online news release, May 5th 2021). For the documentary, Channel 4 commissioned 2 production companies who also were pro-vaccination: CARAVAN and QUICKSILVER MEDIA. 

 

Caravan was founded by BAFTA (the film and TV charity), the RTS (Royal Television Society) and a former BBC producer: DINAH LORD, who was Caravan’s Managing Director in 2021 and an Executive Producer for the documentary. Caravan’s senior team in 2021 included another former BBC producer, MATTHEW BARRETT.

 

Quicksilver Media was headed by a former Channel 4 producer, EAMONN MATTHEWS, an Executive Producer on the documentary, who said: “Just at the moment when Covid vaccines offer the best chance for saving the lives of millions across the globe, the anti-vaxx movement has grown in strength.  “The Rise of the Anti-Vaxx Movement” [the working title for the documentary] investigates this well-funded and organised movement and the methods it uses to draw in and hold its followers.” (Channel 4 News release, May 5th 2021). 

 

The documentary concluded with the narrator saying of the anti-vax movement: “Now it’s political; they’re preaching a New World Order; an outright rejection of science, experts, and established authority.” 

 

Imran Ahmed said “We’re up against a really organised, ruthless, evil anti-vax industry.” 

 

Imran Ahmed, in the documentary, showed delight on hearing that the anti-vaxxer LARRY COOK had been censored by Facebook and Twitter. Cook had consequently tried to sue those companies. Ahmed commented on Cook’s legal challenge unsympathetically: “He said his revenue had been demolished – boo hoo...[Ahmed said] these are economically motivated bad guys; these people need to be out of business; they need to be pariahs.” 

 

In the documentary, a pro-vaxxer featured was ETHAN LINDENBERGER, a young man who had gained fame for publicly opposing his mother’s anti-vax stance and belief in conspiracy theories. Consequently, Lindenberger had been invited to testify before a US Senate hearing that dealt with epidemics of diseases such as measles, and dealt with the dissemination of misleading information about vaccines. Lindenberger also gave a TED talk on vaccine misinformation. Curiously, in the Channel 4 doc, Lindenberger had a tattoo on his right arm of the CADUCEUS symbol (the winged staff of HERMES with 2 intertwined snakes) that had been adopted in America as a symbol of medicine. Did the symbol have another meaning? Andrew Wakefield regarded Lindenberger as a “useful idiot” (to the pro-vaxxers) and as a “role model” for young people to rebel against their parents. This division between parents and children is a Ruling Elite goal, I believe. Wakefield said he was a fan of ‘maternal instinct’.

All the language on the programme regarding the strength of the "Anti-vax Movement" is disingenuous clap-trap.

It made out that the push-back against the covid vaccines is well- funded and well- organised.

 

It's neither, and any attempt to say it is, is hysteria. 

 

Especially when compared to the billions and billions spent worldwide  on vaccines, propaganda, advertising, coercion, bribes and even stooping so low as to pay Tiktok "Influencers" to shill for Big Pharmicide.

 

A few people are saying No to the poison, and they just can't take the rejection.

 

Well boo- hoo.

Yes, that is a very good point.

 

Your maternal instinct obviously is to run away with your baby from Nurse Needle and her toxic vials.

 

They know this and snidely say things such as, "Who knows what's best for your child, you, or a medical expert?"

 

I'll never again trust a doctor, to be honest.

I didn't watch the documentary but I would imagine Channel Four didn't show the case of the Mcdowell triplets.

It's the most heartbreaking case of vaccine damaged children I have seen. Watch it and weep.

 

"A VAXXED video that has been banned almost everywhere is going viral on Brighteon.com, the Youtube alternative video community for free speech on vaccines, GMOs, natural medicine and more. As the video shows below, healthy triplets all became autistic within hours of vaccination, once again demonstrating that vaccines cause autism"
