Andrew Wakefield is angry. He is angry because he’s being oppressed. He’s being rightfully blamed for the current measles outbreak in Wales, and he doesn’t like the truth. He hates it so much that he wheelbarrowed his balls over to a camera and recorded this video:
If you can stomach the hypocrisy, watch all the way to where he turns to the camera and demands a public debate, with an audience, to settle the score. I would laugh if it weren’t so pathetic. I mean, the about section of the video reads:
“Dr Wakefield responds to UK public health officials call for censorship on MMR vaccine safety debate, measles vaccine failure, and issues a further challenge for open debate.”
Reading that, you would think — if you didn’t know any better — that Andy stands for truth, justice, and the American way… That he fights so that all of us will have a voice. But you know better. You know how he rolls:
All comments opposing Andy have been deleted as well. I mean every single thing I wrote. I woke up this morning, and I will wake up 50 years from now, long after Andy is a thing of the past, and I will look my children in the eyes and tell them that I was not a hypocrite, that I didn’t cause the undue suffering of hundreds (or even thousands) because of my ego and my desire to be in front of the cameras.
Andy, this is not a game. Science is not to be decided via a public debate, or in the courts. People are dying.
His response would probably be that that’s what people do… As he looks into the camera and smiles.
