“Anti-vaccine movement causes the worst whooping cough epidemic in 70 years”- Oh Really???

If you haven’t heard …according to vaccinews.net, but contrary to conventional medical literature, the CDC, and leading vaccine experts – “the anti-vaccine movement is the cause of the worst whooping cough epidemic in 70 years.” The population has only been increasingly vaccinated for pertussis over the past 70 years, so this headline automatically flies in the face of reason. Please read and pass on this very important blog by Hilary Butler on the truth behind pertussis vaccine failure, and the continuous and ever morphing spin that goes along with the pipe dream that the pertussis vaccine could to lead to real herd immunity. We agree with her analysis that “Everything written about the whooping cough vaccines is “biased”… period. Not just with “observer” bias, but with language bias and interpretation bias.”

Whooping Cough and Chameleons

Following on from the medieval war of words on measles …lies, emotional blackmail, weasel words and chameleon science is also being purveyed in the whooping cough battle.

Starting with the most obvious, is Vaccinet’s TRUMPETING HEADLINE about a Washington whooping cough outbreak recently that: “Anti-vaccine movement causes the worst whooping cough epidemic in 70 years.” Meanwhile other pro-vaccine sites, while taking the line that everyone should have their pertussis shots with breakfast, no matter what age, at least have the decency not to lie in the text, even if the videos are outright blackmail. Who in their right mind would leave a baby coughing, on their backs? THE MEDICAL PROFESSION SAYS ABOUT THE WASHINGTON OUTBREAK THAT:

Tom Skinner, a spokesman for the CDC, said that although it may come to mind, the outbreaks are probably not the result of the increase in the number of parents choosing not to vaccinate their children from certain diseases. …..

“It’s not likely that vaccine refusal is having a large role in this,” he said. “Pertussis is a bacterium that’s cyclical in nature. We see these outbreaks from time to time as immunity wanes in our populations.”

It only ‘comes to mind,’ because they say it does and have programmed people to believe it does, with people like Offit constantly using the term “how the anti-vaccine movement threatens us all.” However, the war of words goes much deeper than that. It permeates the medical literature as well, and is partly a measure to cover their tracks.
