The corporate media is targeting Republicans who argue that the decision to inject children with demonstrably dangerous vaccines should be left to parents.
MSNBC and the Democrats have turned vaccination into a political weapon by declaring it is “the new political wedge issue.”
MSNBC claims Republicans “must balance the inarguable evidence showing the benefits of vaccination with lingering suspicion from many conservatives, who often regard entrenched institutions – from big government to the health care industry to scientists at elite universities – with skepticism.”
This “inarguable evidence” ignores numerous cases where vaccinations have proved not only injurious, but fatal.
The move is an effort to further marginalize the growing movement against vaccination, which MSNBC claims is part of the Republican political base, and force Republicans to openly embrace vaccination and coercion by the state.
MSNBC claims the anti-vaccination movement is locked in “anti-science rhetoric” and consists of flat-worlders who deny climate change and the theory of evolution.
The State, Not Parents, Must Make Medical Decisions for Children
The pointed attacks on Senator Rand Paul and others are an attack on the right of parents to make medical decisions for their children, not on the questionable medical efficacy of vaccination.
Unfortunately many Republicans, including Rand Paul, believe vaccinations are effective. Those in favor of vaccinating children include former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and others.
Coercion by the state to enforce the vaccination agenda is now being pushed by the “conservative” Fox News network.
“After both Rand Paul and Chris Christie said that the government should not have the power to make childhood vaccines mandatory, Fox News hosts Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly agreed that the state should be able to force parents into giving their kids shots, arguing ‘some things require big brother,’” Paul Joseph Watson wrote for Infowars.com on Tuesday.
The vaccination agenda is being used to divide the Republican Party and exclude the libertarian and individual liberty factions.
Like their Democrat counterparts, statist Republicans believe government reserves the right to force individuals at gunpoint to obey.
