Anti-vaxxers believe Ebola is nothing but a CDC conspiracy

Anti-vaxxers believe Ebola is nothing but a CDC conspiracy October 13, 2014

The anti-vaccine movement will never cease to amaze me. The extreme level of idiocy that spews from this camp can seem funny at times, but when you remember they are backed by celebrity voices, their conspiracy filled messages become increasingly dangerous.

Today, iO9 is reporting that the movement is claiming that whole Ebola outbreak is a CDC conspiracy. The purposefully misleadingly names site Child Health Safety has posted to their site:

How is it we suddenly have an Ebola “outbreak” and it is coming to the USA too?

The Ebola outbreak is quite a coincidence – senior CDC scientist Dr Thompson has been talking with Dr Hooker for 10 months about the CDC knowing the MMR vaccine causes autism. The Ebola “problem” was introduced gently to the US public earlier in the year.

Now we have an Ebola “outbreak” in the west just when Hooker’s paper has been published and the admissions about the CDC knowing the MMR vaccine causes Autism issue are breaking news which the mainstream media refuse to report.

And today’s news of a “vaccine” will of course be certain to ensure editors will publish nothing about MMR vaccine causing autism.

Of course to test a new vaccine and a new drug one needs a clinical trial. But people tend not to get Ebola – it has been pretty quiet for a very long time – until now.

And suddenly they ship the sick people off to the USA with all the attendant risks of spreading the disease instead of treating them where they got sick.

Seems a gift for WHO and the CDC but who wrapped it and how long ago?

So it is impossible to supply to Africa an emergency medical unit and equip it to treat the victims? They have to be shipped back to the USA with all the risk of spread of the disease? Isn’t that reckless?

And what a miracle that so many of the “victims” have managed to survive. “Don’t worry – the US government and CDC will save you”.

So it looks like being proven right and Donald Trump’s triumph over that is trumped by trumpeting from WHO and the CDC with the Ebola vaccine news.

And they are not alone, the fanatical right wing news site The Liberty Beacon has also posted that it is more than a coincidence that the Ebola outbreak coincided with a UN vaccine campaign:

The Ebola pandemic began in late February in the former French colony of Guinea while UN agencies were conducting nationwide vaccine campaigns for three other diseases in rural districts. The simultaneous eruptions of this filovirus virus in widely separated zones strongly suggests that the virulent Zaire Ebola strain (ZEBOV) was deliberately introduced to test an antidote in secret trials on unsuspecting humans.

The cross-border escape of Ebola into neighboring Sierra Leone and Liberia indicates something went terribly wrong during the illegal clinical trials by a major pharmaceutical company. Through the lens darkly, the release of Ebola may well have been an act of biowarfare in the post-colonial struggle to control mineral-rich West Africa.

And to top off the crazy, and I mean crazy, The Vaccine Information Network is unsure Ebola even exists, calling it “yet another fake pandemic set up to poison is with drugs and vaccines.”

iO9 shares part of an interview with the anti-vaccine site:

Q: But people are sick and dying.

A: People are always sick and dying. You can find them anywhere you look. That doesn’t mean they’re Ebola cases.

Q: In other words, medical authorities can place a kind of theoretical grid over sick and dying people and reinterpret them as “Ebola.”

A: Exactly. The map can be drawn in any number of ways

Q: So the symptoms of Ebola, like cough, fever, fatigue, diarrhea—these can be attributed to many causes?

A: Absolutely. The flu, for example.

Q: What about the health workers in West Africa who have died?

A: Since unreliable diagnostic tests would have been run on them, we don’t have any idea why they died. But at least some of them were suffering greatly from working inside hazmat suits, sealed off from the outside. In a one-hour shift, in boiling heat, they were losing five quarts of body fluid, then coming out, rehydrating, disinfecting with toxic chemicals, putting their suits on again, going back to patients for the next shift, losing extraordinary amounts of body fluid again, and so forth and so on. That would cause anyone to collapse.

This nonsense is simply getting out of hand. Natural News, the home page for every vaccine – chemtrail conspiracy theorist gave out a list of ways to survive the Ebola outbreak that read like a how to survive on The Walking Dead.

This type of misinformation is not only stupid but it can be deadly. While the US does have the Ebola virus under control in the US and the possibility of it spreading in any manner like in Africa are beyond thin, telling people the disease doesn’t exist is the exact idiotic nonsense that led to its spread in the first place with citizens of these African villages being uninformed and spreading false information.

We must be diligent in our squashing of such idiotic and dangerous statements around the world.
