It must be the only way in Australia to get credibility as a politician. It seems that none of them ever question the fact that all vaccines are not 100% safe. Vaccines and every other medical procedure will never be. This is a scientific fact. Due to no patient or person ever being the same, the side effects and adverse reactions can be vastly different from one person to the other.
This brings us to the newest member of the Victorian Government to come out and start spreading the pharmaceutical jargon. James Merlino. Victorian Minister of Education and acting Premier at the time of the following quote.
“The scientific evidence is crystal clear – vaccines are safe and there is simply no excuse for not immunizing your child.”
James Merlino – Acting Victorian Premier – 4 January 2017
This is a big call for someone with no actual real scientific or medical background. He studied political science. just like Victorian Health Minister Jill Hennessy he is making claims about things he doesn’t know anything about. I would like to see a real medical doctor or even better a professor to stand up and make this statement. They would be seriously jeopardizing their careers if they stated there was no risk in vaccinating your children. Legally no means no. 100%. No room for a few casualties for the “greater good”,
We know that when the media does have to report on vaccine injury. Like last week on the Ben Hammond case. They use words like “freak reaction” and “1 in a million”. They make it sound like there is no chance at all. You have to be very unlucky. But is this really true? Even if the chance is 1 in a million to get a severe adverse reaction this is still a very real risk. Let’s have a look at these numbers and see what the real story is.
According to the TGA website 2516 events were reported in 2015 that were being linked to “adverse events following immunization”. This number is low as it widely regarded as an underreported number. Even so it is about 11 times higher then 1 in a million. But for our story we will keep to the 1 in a million.
The government’s own numbers, which are way too low, conclude that 40 to 50 children every year get severely damaged by vaccines. Where are these children? Where is the compensation for these children? Why are these stories not in the media? And why are we being told there is NO RISK?!
Severe adverse reactions are not something that an acting premier or health minister can be relaxed about. These are severe and life changing events if this happens in your family. The vaccine inserts list conditions like seizures, epilepsy, allergies, asthma, and severe allergic reactions which could lead to death. This is not the end of the list because some vaccines list conditions like autism, cerebral palsy, long-term brain damage, coma, lowered consciousness and permanent brain damage. Not to mention Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and just plain death.
Is it fair to say that these politicians like Victorian premier Daniel Andrews, federal health Minister Ley, Victorian health minister Hennessy and acting Victorian premier Merlino are all way out of line stating that vaccinations are safe? They are obviously stating something that is proven wrong. They are talking about vaccines as safe while they could be deadly and life-changing.And let’s not fool ourselves. Politicians with an opposing view are very hard to find.
How can it be that these false and misleading statements are being made by politicians without any scientific or medical background? How is it that the media just regurgitates these statements without questioning the narrative? Isn’t that the main purpose of independent and good journalism? Obviously, in Australia, the media and politicians have the same people to answer too. Otherwise, we would see some more unbias and independent reporting on this matter.
I won’t hold my breath, though. The media is ruled by Murdoch’s Newscorp. And we all know that he has a vast interest in pharmaceutical companies and the profits of vaccines. Do you really think him and his cronies care about the peasants and their children when billions and even trillions are at stake?
We know the politicians don’t. We know that Victorian health Minister Hennessy doesn’t care about these 40 to 50 children every year. She is refusing to talk to anyone about the possibility that their kids might have been vaccine damaged. Even though, scientifically speaking, the chances are very, very real. It is time we start holding these politicians to account. They are spreading dangerous misinformation. They say they are doing this for the public health and the greater good, but is this really something we want to allow.
What is next? Maybe all black people should be deported for the greater good. This might stop the crime wave. May be all Muslims should be imprisoned in camps for the greater good, this might stop terrorism. Do you get the picture? When is it ever ok to take people’s freedoms away and lie to the population for the greater good? Especially from a politician. We are walking a fine line. And we have crossed the line from a free society. We have crossed over into a fascist, Orwellian and controlled society.
Australia is no longer the lucky country. And if we want to make Australia lucky again we need to start standing up against these lies. Against the narrative of “the greater good” and we need to understand that we are being lied to by the people that should be there to do what is in our best interests.
