Close Up's programme on whooping cough, was a triumph of emotional blackmail using a cute baby with whooping cough, to push a policy which doesn't work. But worse than that, was the standard of discussion on Close up's facebook page. You know that eminence based manipulation has truly scraped the bottom of the barrel when Grant Jacobs obliquely counsels all readers not to even look at the scientific links put up, .... inferring that those who don’t have the right background won’t understand the studies posted implying that there is no need for anyone else to look at them either
What does Jacobs then post? A link to Imac, who according to him are the sanctified pontifical crystal ball. IMAC - Nikki Turner the world's best trained cherry picker, purveyor of mandatory vaccination given half a chance -and the constant "leaver-outer" of any information that really matters, who.....subscribes to the Nike Motto, as do her followers.
And IMAC certainly would never remind the viewers on Close Up, that her colleagues in Australia, who actually understand the science.... cancelled the "cocooning" which Nikki Turner so earnestly advocates, because it doesn't work. Can't let facts get in the way of a good thing for vaccine manufacturers, and IMAC asserting it's "control" and peer group pressure!
The most accurate assessment of the calibre of cognitive dissonance displayed by the provaccine people on Close-Up's page? A post by Erin LeKiwi which went like this:
Really does make you question the capacity of people to think when you have conversations like this, huh...
A. "Omgz get the vaccine!"
B. "But the vaccine doesn't work and never has - look at all this info!" *gives copious data, medical research, studies, statistics etc*
A. "Omgz shut up you don't know what you're talking about! Get the vaccine!"
B. "I just gave you all the evidence you could ask for... why get a vaccine that doesn't work?"
A. "You're just biased!"
B. "No, look at the info..."
C. "Omgz get the vaccine you mean plague-ridden ignorant non-vaccinators, I should have sovereignty over your body and make you get it! It's because of you my baby got sick!"
