Barbara Loe Fisher and her cronies at the US National Vaccine Information Center know how to get a rise out of their panting whackaloons: mention the name “Paul Offit”; make sure it’s mentioned in a Strawman; make sure it’s a dog whistle. The pack of dogs come in numbers, and they never disappoint. Fisher has trained them well.
The Forbes article in question is a great one. In it Dr Offit calls for an end to false balance in medical reporting. It is a noble call. The community does much better when fully informed by those who are qualified to speak in their field. Putting these qualified people up against a bubble-blowing conspiracy theorist in news stories does the community a disservice. It needs to end.
This time the NVIC have upped the ante into full-blown death threats against Dr Offit and his family. All because of a dog-whistling Strawman from the master puppeteer, Fisher. It pays the bills, folks.
I won’t say any more. They really do speak for themselves.
We’ve met the deranged Vazquez before, here. He’s a supporter of the Australian (anti) Vaccination Network.
Vazquez is in charge of a small child. Think about that for a while.
Let your friends and family know what really lurks behind the fraudulent veil of decency which is portrayed by these violent organisations. This is why Dr Offit has required a heightened security presence in the past.
