Dr. Bob Sears, our Douchebag Emerit-ass, is in hot water

News came late to me that Dr. Bob Sears, 2014’s Douchebag of The Year, is now in hot water with the California Medical Board for what the legal filing states that he “was grossly negligent and departed from the standard of care in that he did not obtain the basic information necessary for decision making prior to determining to exclude the possibility of future vaccines, leaving both patient J.G, the patient’s mother, and his future contacts at risk for preventable and communicable diseases”

Orac does a great job of covering all this, so I won’t bore you with the details. You can go read his blog and enjoy some much deserved insolence against “Dr. Bob.”

It goes without saying that this should perk the ears of other anti-vaccine so-called physicians (or physicians in title only, as no physician worth their salt would ever be anti-vaccine). They should be very, very careful about how they carry on their business of promoting anti-vaccine science.

Smear! Smear at all costs!

You know you’ve made it big in the anti-vaccine circles when they start attacking you personally, calling into question your integrity, and calling you names like “Pharma Whore.” Before that, you’re just another cog in the Big Pharma machine. After that, you’re a rock star. Take the recent example of “the daily web newspaper of the [non-existent] autism epidemic” and their recent blog post smearing a law professor. Instead of posting all of it, I’ll just post for you the objective portions of the 1,097-word screed (of which 627, or 57%, are quoted words). See if you can make out what the writer is going on about:

“Dorit Reiss, associate law professor Hastings campus University of California, first came to my notice the other week commenting on Rabbi Handler’s article about vaccination in the Jewish Press.”

My first legal threat!

I got a legal threat from “Deathby Vaccination” on Facebook:

“Attn: Mr Edward Jenner a.k.a. Reuben Gaines:
On October 4, 2012, at 9:26:07 p.m. using your Comcast IP address: [redacted] I have been informed that you viewed LeprechaunUSA.com after finding my son’s picture through a GOOGLE search from a computer that was using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_8_2) AppleWebKit/537.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/22.0.1229.79 Safari/537.4 software.
As a Member of the Bar, and per FBI recommended Cyberstalking Procedures, YOU and ANY and ALL organizations, and/or entities you are associated with, including, but not limited to: ThePoxesStory and The Poxes Blog, plus acquaintances thereof which you may encourage; Corporate entities, such as JOHNS HOPKINS, MERCK, GSK, PFIZER, etc., including, but not limited to their agents, suppliers, vendors, and any entity they/you are directly or indirectly associated with, are hereby put on notice and ORDERED TO CEASE AND DESIST any and all contact, harassment and /or stalking of me, my family-especially stalking of my children, my friends-including FACEBOOK FRIENDS, and any and all groups and entities that I am associated with.
In Archive v. Shell, the court ruled that Archive did not exercise “dominion” over the copied (archived) material. You, Mr. Richard Jenner, HAVE “exercised dominion,” as evidenced by the linking and re-posting of my son’s pictures from a website I own, which is a violation of the posted TERMS OF USE for that website. (see: Archive v. Shell-2007, a case in which I was involved).
Additionally, as a graduate of JOHNS HOPKINS and possible agent thereof, who stalked and identified a minor child by name on the internet, by his picture, who is NOT a PUBLIC FIGURE, is not helpful to your cause.
In addition, any and all photographic images, or electronic facsimile(s) that violate the TERMS OF USE of the domain, LEPRECHAUNUSA.COM, are hereby ordered to be remove and destroyed/deleted immediately, the destruction and removal of which does not constitute reduction or satisfaction of civil, criminal, or monetary culpability in violation of the TERMS OF USE you accepted by visiting and viewing that website, then blatantly ”exercising dominion over” the LeprechaunUSA.com website contents.
A POLICE REPORT and Agency Report will be generated by me for the unauthorized use and exploitation of pictures of my minor children by you, known to me by your Facebook alias: RICHARD JENNER, an adult, together with your “hint” that I view your Facebook group’s “WALL”, along with the transcript of your messages, which strongly suggests that you and/or members of your group(s) may possibly be involved in pedophile activity, or have an unhealthy interest in tracking young toddlers on the internet.
Of further possible interest to authorities is your Russian reference to Koltsovo, Novosibirsk Oblast.
“Koltsovo is roughly the equivalent to both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the U.S. Army Chemical and Biological Defense Command. It has research facilities and capabilities for all levels of Biological Hazard, CDC Levels 1-4. It is one of two official repositories for the now-eradicated smallpox virus,[a] and is part of the system of laboratories known as the Biopreparat. Recently the facility has been upgraded and secured using the most modern cameras, motion sensors, fences, and biohazard containment systems. Its relative seclusion makes security an easier task. Since its inception there has been an elite army regiment guarding the facility. The center was believed to be a hub for biological warfare research for the old Soviet Union.” -Wiki”

Wow!

I’d like to know where and when I identified his child by name? He emailed me his child’s name. I didn’t do that. His page is out there for the world to see. Whatever. This is how rabid anti-vaxxers will react to being exposed to the truth. I’m blocking him from contacting me on Facebook.

One thing, though… Why did he decide to mention “Corporate entities, such as JOHNS HOPKINS, MERCK, GSK, PFIZER, etc.” Conspiracy theory, much?
