WXXI Rochester Dismisses Medical Racism: The New Apartheid
By Anne Dachel
On June 8, 2021, in a completely one-page article in Rochester, NY, WXXI Radio once again destroyed the whole idea that the mumps-measles-rubella vaccine (MMR) is particularly dangerous for African Americans.
WXXI went to this one named after the latest movie online Medical Racism: The New Apartheid, and, as usual, experts queued to reject the claims and beat up the producers while none of the conflicting evidence was honestly discussed.
Most revealing was the omission of the Dr. William Thompson story of the Centers for Disease Control’s fraud, corruption and cover-up of the MMR vaccine as shown in the movie Vaxxed.
In the age of COVID, it is important that security concerns are dismissed as false and those who raise them are denounced. After all, they have a vaccine to sell to us.
WXXI, Rochester, NY: Anti-vaccine film targeting black Americans spreads false information Defense. (He is the son of former US Attorney General Robert “Bobby” Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy.) With this film, Kennedy and his allies in the anti-vaccine movement refute and promote rebutted allegations about the dangers of vaccines, but it is aimed directly at a specific population group: black Americans.
The film draws a line from the real and disturbing story of racism and atrocities in the medical field – like the Tuskegee Syphilis Study – to interviews with Anti-vaccine activists warning colored communities to be suspicious of modern vaccines.
At one point in Medical Racism, viewers are warned that “there is something very sinister in black communities” and that “the same thing that happened in the 1930s during the eugenics movement” is happening again.
There has been long discussion about the thoroughly disproven connection between autism and vaccines. For example, the film references a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on measles, mumps and rubella vaccination and autism rates as evidence that African-American children are particularly harmed, but in reality the study did not conclude that African American have an increased risk of autism due to the vaccination.
The movie then displays a table claiming to use the same CDC data – obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request – to link vaccinating black children with autism risk. The results in the table are very similar to another study sometimes mentioned by anti-vaccine activists, but the medical journal later withdrew the study because of “unexplained competing interests of the author” and “concerns about the validity of the methods and” of statistics “. Analysis. “(The author of this study was also a paid independent contractor for Kennedy’s group as of 2020 and sits on its board of directors.) …
Kennedy’s group released the film in early March when the COVID-19 vaccine became generally available to the American public.
The film opens with a series of ominous news clips about the pandemic and the COVID-19 vaccines, and features brief interviews with people of color who talk about COVID-19 being “propaganda” and why they don’t trust the vaccine. Kennedy also seems to be warning viewers about vaccines: “Don’t listen to me. Don’t listen to Tony Fauci. Hey, and don’t listen to your doctor. “…
“The movie basically wants people to realize this story that leads to the present day, and especially when faced with decisions about whether to take a vaccine, including COVID,” he says.
In an email statement, a spokesman for Children’s Health Defense denied the film was misinformation and said it contained “peer-reviewed scientific and historical data.”
The film is “a classic example of the anti-vaccine industry with a very targeted message that uses sophisticated marketing techniques and building alliances with affiliated organizations,” said Imran Ahmed, chief executive officer of the nonprofit Center for Countering Digital Hate extensively researched figures like Kennedy….
