So this asshole got some joke award for his charlatanry:
The man who published a widely-dismissed paper claiming the MMR vaccine could make children autistic has been ridiculed with an award for bad science. Andrew Wakefield, a former gastroenterologist who is now believed to be in a relationship with the model Elle Macpherson, has been awarded the ‘Rusty Razor’ award for pseudoscience by magazine The Skeptic.
Wakefield’s so-called research fueled the ‘anti-vaxx’ movement, by suggesting jabs could make children autistic, but his studies were fabricated.
Experts have called the paper, published in medical journal The Lancet in 1998, but retracted in 2010, ‘the most damaging medical hoax of the past 100 years’.
Never mind the Rusty Razor Award, someone should have used a rusty razor to cut this fucker’s head off. Countless children have died and others fallen dangerously ill because of his “pseudo-scientific” study, and at least he should be in prison for life instead of dating a dim-bulb ex-supermodel.
I am not a vengeful man by nature, but if one day some bereaved parent were to shoot Wakefield in the face and I were in the jury at the parent’s trial, my vote would be an unshakable “Not Guilty”.
At RealClearPolitics, Betsy McCaughey asks this question at the end of her article:
“Democrats in favor of socialism need to take a hard look at the results in Venezuela and Cuba. Is that what they want for America?”
Oh good grief, of course they do. They just want to ensure that they are at the top of Failed Socialist Experiment #76 so that they can a.) get obscenely wealthy and b.) thus be shielded from the outcome of the failure. What happens to the working classes is, as always, irrelevant.
As for the author: it’s well-meaning but naïve people like this who fail to understand fully the evils of socialism and its proponents.
Talking about some fresh unhinged lunacy perpetrated by the Democrats last week, Insty’s Ed Driscoll opined:
As Conquest’s third law of politics states, “The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies.”
With all respect to Ed (and to Mr. Conquest), I would suggest that there is no way that the hapless Republicans could engineer such a mess. The GOP couldn’t organize an orgy at a brothel, let alone control this bag of cats.
Nope; the Democrats’ current insanity is completely self-managed, fueled by copious amounts of liberal stupidity and Marxism [some overlap].
So one-time-moderate Republican Phil Bredesen is campaigning for the U.S. Senate seat in Tennessee, as a Democrat.
One might think that this would be an uphill battle as it is; but apparently the people who are trying to get this tool elected said this recently:
A top spokesman for the Tennessee Democratic Party’s effort to get Phil Bredesen elected senator has said he views “white male” gun owners as “the biggest terrorist organization on the planet.”
In Tennessee. Well, I guess there’s only one thing to say to Bredesen: buh-bye.
In the meantime, all you dangerous white male gun-owning terrorists should do the responsible thing — no, not that thing, the voting thing.
And let’s make sure that Marsha Blackburn isn’t the only Republican sent to the Senate come November. Ditto the House.
November 6 just can’t come quickly enough.
Recent post by a Google employee:
See, he’s talking about the after-life, while I’m more interested in the here-and-now. My response:
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” — Hillary Bitch Clinton, October 10 2018
Fair enough. So let’s list a few of the things that I (and a great many others) stand for, and that I care about, in no specific order (and feel free to add any that I may have forgotten):
- The First and Second Amendments (and the other eight in the Bill of Rights, but most especially the first two)
- A Constitution that cannot be changed by any means other than by amendment, as laid down in the Constitution
- A tri-cameral government system, consisting of the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches
- A judiciary that follows Constitutional precept rather than changing it by judicial fiat or through political belief
- The Electoral College
- Citizen-only voting, with proof of same required before doing so
- Secure borders and controlled immigration
- Low taxes
Now, using Clinton’s own rationale, and considering that her political party stands absolutely foursquare against, and seeks to destroy all the above, I would ask her to explain to me why I should ever be in any way “civil” towards Democrats (or their camp followers, the “Social” Democrats).
While she’s preparing her response, I’ll be down at the range.
