Swine Flu Shot Propaganda
Goes Into Overdrive
The establishments propaganda drive to convince everyone to
take the swine flu shot has gone into overdrive, surpassing any
previous effort in the domain of public health and stoking suspicions
about the motivations of pharmaceutical giants, especially in light
of the fact that the H1N1 virus is far less deadly than the regular
Governments have temporarily backed away from their plans to
mandate the shot, but this hasnt stopped the juggernaut
of a mass media brainwashing campaign that is brow-beating reluctant
citizens to take the vaccine even in the absence of the widely
promised deadlier second wave of the swine flu virus.
Everywhere you look, the corporate media is over spilling with
big pharma mouthpieces endlessly regurgitating the refrain that
the idiot public should shut up, stop asking difficult questions
about mercury, squalene and other additives, and just take
the damn vaccine.
The latest example came in the form of Homeland Security chief Janet
Napolitanos appearance the The Daily Show the other night,
during which she and host Jon Stewart took a sideswipe at people
who were concerned about the vaccine by portraying them as paranoid
and mentally unstable.
Such desperation is only serving to raise more eyebrows amongst
the general public, who unlike the corporate networks still retain
a memory of what happened during the last mass swine flu vaccination
campaign, when the injection killed more people than the virus
Such fevered insistence that everyone take the shot simply does
not correlate with the fact that swine flu has proven far less
deadly than regular seasonal flu.
Denis Coulombier, who heads the European Centre for Disease Prevention
and Controls preparedness and response unit, told
AFP that A(H1N1) killed a very small proportion of those
who caught it, at about 0.2-0.3 deaths per thousand a lower
rate than seasonal flu, which kills around one patient per thousand.
Despite record cold temperatures around the world over the last
month, the promised second wave of swine flu has not yet appeared,
but Coulombier still all but guarantees another explosion of infections
in the coming weeks.
The mammoth level of fearmongering that has been whipped up around
swine flu despite its relatively benign threat has of course,
Im sure, nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that pharmaceutical
giants are reaping vast dividends in profits from vaccine production
during what would otherwise have been a struggle amidst an economic
Sarcasm aside, the desperation of the establishment expresses
itself in no more a revealing way than claims that the efforts
of the anti-vaccine lobby are responsible for the
outcome of polls that show a huge number of people will reject
the shot, as if the anti-vaccine lobby, whatever that
is, has one iota of the influence, or indeed the malevolence,
enjoyed by the pharmaceutical lobby, an industry that has no less
than 1,274 registered lobbyists in Washington D.C. alone and spent
around $900 million on lobbying between 1998 and 2005, more than
any other industry. Big pharma lobbied on at least 1,600 pieces
of legislation between 1998 and 2004.
In an article for the London Evening Standard entitled, Stop
being so selfish and get the swine flu vaccine, a smug-looking
celebrity doctor blames the anti-vaccine lobby for
creating doubt surrounding the vaccine by pointing out that its
production was rushed and that it bypassed routine safety procedures.
In reality, such concerns were not first expressed by the anti-vaccine
lobby, but were reported
prominently by the London Times on July 13.
The real story here is the fact that the anti-vaccine lobby,
which consists of a relative handful of doctors and health professionals
in comparison with big pharma, has had such an impact in convincing
so many people to reject the swine flu shot, even in the face
of such a huge effort on behalf of the pharmaceutical industry
and their soapbox, the mass media, to convince them otherwise.
