Maybe that “mental disorder” crack was a bit too much?

You have to be out of your mind to deal with the anti-vax crowd. So maybe that last post about an anti-vaxxer maybe having a mental disorder was a bit much? Maybe I’m the one with the disorder since I willingly go and read their rants. In fact, I read so many of their rants that it’s hard to choose which one to take on. Instead of “ugly” in the following clip, replace it with “nuttier”:

Seriously, it’s hard to decide.

If anti-vaccine activists are not telling us that autism is worse than death, then they’re telling us unsubstantiated bullshit like this:

See, because the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) within the US DOH runs both the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network and the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, then HRSA must be taking organs from “vaccine injured” children and selling those organs to the highest bidder. That’s why we must have such a small number of people needing organ transplants… Oh, wait.

That picture there must be from a child about to have their organs harvested, right? I mean, since this posting from “VacTruth.com” is chock-full of facts, then the picture must be factual, right? Not so. It’s not even close to being about organ transplants. I shouldn’t be too hard on VacTruth.com. They probably did a Google search (their version of “research”) and probably found this article about organ trafficking allegedly done by Mexican drug gangs. (It’s from the Daily Mail, so take that article with a grain of salt.)

I don’t know what’s better, the post itself, or the comments from the page’s followers who swear that this is the truth, and that the child in that picture, despite being shown that the picture is from elsewhere, is a vaccine-injured child who is having his organs harvested. Even the people sharing the post are something to look at:

To people that are seemingly divorced from reality, no conspiracy theory is too outlandish not to believe it. Between this and the reasoning of the Supreme Court, I think we’re in trouble.

    • Facebook uses a computer algorithm to look at reports. If more than one person has reported it, then a human looks at it. On its face, it’s just a child getting anesthesia, so it doesn’t really violate their terms. And they’re not ones to enforce copyright laws.

  1. Yup, and slightly off topic, but reading the comments on a story about unaccompanied minors sent to the us by their parents to avoid this fate was a glimpse into how far down the rabbit hole some have gone. The children allowed to stay pending hearings are given medical treatment and vaccines, however some actually believe that the children are being infected with disease and sent to population centers so outbreaks start and the government can quarantine the unvaxxed kids not under their control. It’s weird that functional adults actually believe this kind of thing.

  2. The origin of that picture is from here: http://www.tipsimages.it/Photo/ShowImage_Editorial_Popup.asp?IMID=1476738&or_h=h&or_v=v&or_s=s&or_p=p&tp_f=f&tp_i=i&tp_c=c&ps_1=1&ps_2=2&ps_3=3&ps_g=g&pgsz=75&rpid=35&cl_c=c&cl_bw=bw&chrm=start&chrf=start&chcr=cr . And the caption for the picture is “”Photo essay.Anesthesia, Department of Cardiac Surgery at Necker Hospital for Children in Paris. Professor Francine Leca will be operating on this Madagascan child with congenital heart disease. Professor Francine Leca is chief of cardiac surgery at Necker Hospital for Children in Paris, France. Her association, Cardiac Mécénat Surgery Enfants du Monde, operates on children afflicted with cardiac deformities and finances their associated stay in France. Aviation Without Borders brings the children to and from France.”.

    They have to be the lowest of lows to steal this picture for the lies they promulgate.

  3. But I thought they were “winning”?! Anyone reduced to that level of propaganda is operating from a severe deficit. In so many ways. I just thought of a great conspiracy theory but daren’t repeat it as it would be taken seriously by “that” kind of mind.

  4. Why am I not surprised that you located that steaming pile of excrement on that particular Facebook entry?

    As the parent of two children (one who received a donated anterior cruciate ligament from an 11 year old child and one whose corneas and heart valves were donated after his death), I take great offense at that posting and those comments.

    BTW, my son lives on in the people whose broken hearts were mended and whose sight was restored; for that I am very grateful.
