Perfectly Safe and Effective: Part One
The standard phrase about medical inoculations has entranced our culture. Conspiracists contend the Lady in the Polka Dot Dress triggered Sirhan Sirhan using it as a psychic driver. Certainly worked for the masses who obediently double jabbed and quadruple boosted to flatten the curveball of hospitalization and deaths. That worked out so well, they’re tossing a monkeypox knuckleball at the LGBTIAns, (not sure what the IA stands for on the spectrum-infrared and ultraviolet?).
One in a million is another universal myth about the dangers of vaccination, so not perfectly safe. Pediatricians can’t predict which baby will flunk their wellness checkup. One in a million children are given medical exemptions by physicians to attend school without the full gamut of mandated vaccinations. ( .01-.03%, do the math.)
When Harvard computers reported vaccination “adverse events” (collateral damage in the war on disease) one in a million shrank to one in 41 infants experiencing medically reported injuries. Inconsolable wailing, high fevers and seizures were common. Parents suffer frantically, call their pediatrician and are gaslighted about the cause. Only “one in a million” doctors filed a professionally risky, time consuming VAERS report.
Yes, covid shots are by far the most dangerous and deadly jabs if VAERS data is any indication. Until these, flu shots had the most injuries reported to that public database. Mostly autoimmune disorders with rapid onset among adults. That does not make previous childhood vaccines perfectly safe and effective. Damaged children and their overwhelmed parents are even less likely to overcome physician resistance to report injuries than adults with latent neurological and autoimmune disorders. Most are in the dark about the cause of their ailments. This is who to target as allies.
Pasteur’s first rabies vaccine killed all the dogs. He dialed it down for human subjects, but a bitten boy died and others were paralyzed because the cat gut he cultured rabies in triggered overly inflammatory immune reactions. Now they employ an army of adjuvants for a less deadly response. Sort of like police rubber bullets.
Emulsified peanut oil is one. Correlate doses with hugely increased nut allergies, deadly enough to quantify as school mass shootings. Connecting the dots between spiraling autoimmune and neurological diseases with unleashed vaccinations after Big Pharma was given immunity from harms in 1986 has been done. There’s no wiggle room for denial, yet willful ignorance by medical professionals and science journalists is accepted as gospel. Time for a reformation nailed to the cathedral’s iron bound doors.
There are effective tactics to dislodge these myths of vaccination, but some objects are immovable while reason is resistible. Penetrating cognitive dissonance is no more difficult than flying a cropduster into the Mother Ship’s Achille’sAperture in Independence Day. If an old drunk can do that, how hard can it be?
Jonah sulked under the grape arbor because the people would not heed God’s warning embodied in him during his journey through the Leviathan. Even back then, some tales were too far out to be believed by the masses. Previously, antivaxx prophets were seen as conspiracy crazies, grassy knolled, tin foil helmed kooks. Some of us are and depart from effective persuasion to pursue our quirky obsessions.
Others are figuratively burnt at the stake like Dr. Andrew Wakefield, whose “discredited” findings have been replicated multiple times, unlike his detractors. We’ve been shunted into narrow crevices of free speech, treated as caricatures for the amusement and scorn of the educated elite. Soon to be conflated with violent terrorists, as no more successful at achieving their goals.
Without panicking, we need to realize time is running out. Luckily the time has never been more ripe for ripping off the veil of ignorance from the enthralled. Pediatricians who jab infants with covid shots can call antivaxxers science deniers. That dog won’t hunt any more. Can’t even get off the porch.
Anti-vaxxers have been smoked out of our caves by peasants with pitchforks. Rather than cowering, we have called out the corruption, lies and omissions, the Needle and the Damage Done. The willfully ignorant True Believers aren’t listening. No Matter. Most people are simply ignorant. This is a tactical advantage considering official “information” the masses are fed.
Every Monday morning since Covidian Psychosis emerged from SARS I’s tomb, vaccinology expert Dr. Swarzberg informed the listeners of “fiercely independent” KPFA on how to avoid illness and death from the Novel Virus. Not with Vitamin D, “never heard of any benefits.” No advice to cold turkey sweetened drinks and sugar snacks, take walks with friends, turn off the fear factor. None of that namby pamby wellness. The only hope was Warp Speed vaccines, until then and long after double mask, social distance and cower in fear.
For two years he’s been tossed softball questions by the willfully ignorant host. Swartzberg is still wearily preaching masks, testing and boosting “on schedule” without informed probing except by occasional callers, although he can’t explain why the numbers don’t compute.
Once a month on Zoom meetings of community organizations in our county during this public health emergency, second in command Public Health officer broke down the latest covid numbers with graphs and similar advice. This week she was recovering from the latest variant, despite double jabbing and boosting on schedule (a fluid definition). She still plans to boost her 11 yo daughter while her older teen son already took that oath. Belief in the One Cure is a cult, impervious to numbers or logic.
The Emergency Coordinator host said her 18 yo old son “caught covid” at the prom, along with everyone else in his class, but didn’t report it. These anecdotal, personal examples seemed to explain why our “community levels” were rated “high”, when the graph showed a tiny bump in “cases” compared to the Omnicon surge of the winter, also mostly positive tests, not hospitalizations. Real numbers are “two to three times higher”, the doctor affirmed with no evidence.
Real Bad Cat can boast that our data division can whip their epidemiologists like an Ultimate Fighter against a puffed up Public Health Prince. That’s just Kung Fu Shadow Boxing. They don’t even acknowledge opponents evidence. They don’t have to, especially if we attack each other for variant opinions. It’s not a numbers game, other than the fact that they’ve got the majority bamboozled. Numbers make eyes glaze over. A Pie Chart is more convincing to the graphic starved.
Humor sometimes cracks frozen ramparts. The Great Ice Wall has Hidden Passages. We are not going to inform everyone. Inform the ignorant injured about whom to blame. Our enemies have the Wall of Sound, drowning out our Worrying Whisper. A dedicated minority has always been the only band to pierce the noise. Dedication is not Dead. Jerry Lives!
