Raw Story - Anti-Vaxxers Convinced Sesame Street Is Part of a Big Pharma Conspiracy
Oh of course its all just an evil conspiracy to cast doubt on the idea that vaccines cause Autism, so that parents will vaccinate their children, and maybe save their lives. Travis Gettys reports on these paranoid tin foil hat conspiracy theorists,
“Sesame Street” is introducing a new Muppet character who has autism — and some anti-vaxxers are furious.
“The rollout of autistic Julia is Sesame Street’s attempt to ‘normalize’ vaccine injuries and depict those victimized by vaccines as happy, ‘amazing’ children rather than admitting the truth that vaccines cause autism in some children and we should therefore make vaccines safer and less frequent to save those children from a lifetime of neurological damage,” wrote Mike “The Health Ranger” Adams, of Natural News.
While many parents, physicians and educators hailed the character’s introduction, some critics have complained that Julia is a girl — although boys are far more likely to have autism — or pointed out that her autism is relatively moderate.
Adams, however, described the character as “yet another sickening example of the absolute mental derangement of modern society.”
Most anti-vaccine advocates believe vaccines cause autism, although numerous scientific studies have debunked that theory and the Centers for Disease Control recommends vaccines as safe.
