MSM To Pro-Vaxxers: Don’t Argue The Facts, Show Scary Pictures!

By Brandon Turbeville

The Vaccine industry, Big Pharma, and the mainstream media have some advice for vaccine zealots attempting to bully parents questioning the safety or effectiveness of vaccines into changing their minds – Don’t argue the facts! Show scary pictures!

In what can only be described as an instruction manual as to how to shame, bully, and shout a person down who simply has a different take on the best and safest way to raise their children, it is clear that the religion of vaccines and “scientism” now has the hallmark of any faith determined to spread itself – the presence of evangelicals.

The new vaccine evangelical movement is being provided with a script sheet of what to say and what to avoid when attempting to convert others to their belief system. Like most religions, the goal among the leaders and the zealots is a world where differing modes of thought no longer exist and where other opinions no longer force them to question the way they view that world.

Articles like “How To Change An Anti-Vaxxer’s Mind” by Jeffrey Kloger of TIME, are a perfect example of the recent propaganda blitz coming from the mainstream media. Kloger’s article is being quickly copied and rewritten in mainstream media outlets all across the country with the real vitriol being found in the more trendy hipster markets.

The recent propaganda push is being based upon a study by researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It’s not certain exactly how much time and effort was put into the study to discover what most undergraduate marketing students and any remotely successful politician, salesman, or sociopath already knows – that scary pictures are more effective at convincing hordes of people of an idea (true or false) than facts, reasoning, or logic.

In other words, the study and the mainstream media have determined that it is best to go after the emotional vulnerabilities of those who are either under-researched, on the fence, or who have been subjected to bullying and social pressure since hipsters and the cool kids realized it was the “in” thing this year to attack “anti-vaxxers.”

Consider the passage by Jeffrey Kloger of TIME who writes,

That’s a very noble goal, but it’s also one of the things that makes it so bloody hard to change their minds on the topic of vaccines. Public service campaigns don’t work; nor do one-on-one explanations of why the rumors about a vaccine-autism link are wrong. In some cases, there is even a backfire effect: the greater the effort expended to persuade the anti-vaxxers, the more convinced they become that they’re right.

So it’s extremely good news that researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign may at last have come up with a way to cut through the misinformation and get the truth across: Don’t just tell parents to vaccinate their children, show them what happens if they don’t.

In other words: Don’t argue with them! Just show scary pictures! The hope is to catch someone unaware, in a weakened state, or someone who is unfortunately not as well-versed on the subject.

Of course, if you can’t convince someone by providing facts, logic, and reasoning there is always the chance that the person is irrational. But there is also the very real chance that they are quite lucid and that you, in fact, armed with all your talking points, media-induced outrage, and perceived intellectual superiority, are simply wrong.

Kloger does make an important point though. Most “anti-vaxxers” are unconvinced when confronted with the typical pro-vaccine argument. But that is not because they are necessarily rigid of belief, it is mostly because the typical pro-vaccine argument tends to be baseless propaganda, rooted in rhetoric instead of science. As for the social aspect, if “anti-vaxxers” didn’t abandon their beliefs when the first few waves of obnoxious Big-Pharma propaganda came blasting through the airwaves, they are generally not impressed when their friends, family, or even complete strangers take it upon themselves to give them a regurgitation of the talking points they heard about vaccines on NPR, CNN, or read in TIME magazine.

After all, social shaming and bullying – if one’s opinions are strong enough – tend to produce the opposite of the desired effect.

This idea of showing scary pictures, however, is not just a rudimentarily effective propaganda method, it can also be quite dangerous, particularly when the scary pictures are being broadcast over every outlet in the mainstream media.

Take the spate of articles posted in the New York Times, for example. Propaganda narratives like “My Patient Doesn’t ‘Do’ Vaccines,” “The Dangers Of Vaccine Denial,” “A Discredited Vaccine Study’s Continuing Impact On Public Health,” are all aimed at painting the science surrounding the numerous demonstrations of vaccine dangers as pseudo-science and parents who question the safety of vaccines as delusional, obsessive, Luddites. They are designed to produce a false consensus within society that vaccines are safe and effective. Basically, they are designed to create a self-fulfilling prophecy – if enough people read the propaganda and believe it, particularly if they think the majority of others believe it, the victim population will come to believe the propaganda.

Now, apparently, the New York Times and its ilk will be sharing scary pictures to go along with their tripe.

Of course, we all know what happened the last time the New York Times posted scary pictures and emotional words. Maybe one day we will finally leave Iraq….

  1. there is another reason why people have an out to taking vaccines besides religious and philosophical ‘exemptions’ – some people think vaccines are based on erroneous science and junk medicine, pushed and administered by people with dubious intentions. some people do not trust doctors, big pharma and government.

    Just an ex.

    Give it to them from Brasil, where Mercury is been used to exrtact diamons.
    I have seen then for decades ago, and there is an extencive reseach done in this so the images are there.
    Not nice, be aware, its a lott of damaged children in there.


  3. This is like the gun debate. Come and force my innoculation. See what happens! No one’s to be trusted, but government and pharmecueticals are at the top of that list. Now they want to join forces. “Go ahead, make my day”!

  4. “Vaccination” has long been SOLD on FEAR and AUTHORITY; exactly as you sell religion, government, medicine or many other very questionable concepts that end up costing too much money and too many lives.

    Bottom line “vaccination” is a totally NEEDLESS religion based on trillions of dollars in profits and is perhaps the MAJOR element in the UN Agenda 21 depopulation.agenda.

    “I raised my children on a natural food diet. They have NEVER had a single dose of an antibiotic. Do kids get sick, sure. Do they need a drug to get better, no. Do we have a pediatrician, of course. Do we go, did not have to.” Doctor Andrew Saul MD Note NOT visiting a “pediatrician” has NUMEROUS benefits and almost NO drawbacks; just the opposite of “vaccination”. “Vaccination” IMO is the greatest driver of antibiotic drug use in children. As always there are a few good pediatricians, damn few IMO.

      Hey Lou – Same for us. We haven’t used any pharmaceutical (even aspirin and Tylenol) for 25 years, 3 super healthy and smart boys not vaccinated and try to avoid eating contaminated garbage food. We take kids to doctors if they need stitches or something like that, NEVER for anything wellness related! We also eliminated dentists, with their poisons and greed. We brush with baking soda and coconut oil mixed together and sometimes peroxide -> no cavities, no gum issues! You may enjoy reading “The Hundred Year Lie” about our poisoned society and “Dissolving Illusions” which uses stats from over 200 years to objectively point out the vaccination fraud.

      • Good for you; you are on to the con. Here is an insight into tooth decay.

        “That brings us to the question–what causes dental decay?
        Low phosphorus levels create a dysregulation of calcium. There is a normal,
        healthy fluid flow that goes through the tooth, from the pulp chamber, through
        the dentin, then the enamel, and finally, through the mouth. This will occur
        when the phosphorus level is close to 4.0. However, if the phosphorus level
        drops below 3.5, then the endocrine system that governs the flow of the fluid
        can reverse its direction through the mouth, through the enamel, into the
        dentin, into the pulp chamber, and then finally sucking the bacteria right into
        the tooth.” What did Cavemen Brush their Teeth with?

        “Doctor Price studied their diets carefully. He found they varied greatly, but the one thing they had in common was that they ate whole, unrefined foods. With absolutely no access to tooth brushes, floss, fluoridated water or tooth paste, the primitive peoples studied were almost 100% free of tooth decay. Further – and not unrelated – they were also almost 100% free of all the degenerative diseases we suffer – problems with the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, joints, skin (allergies), and the whole gamut of illnesses that plague Mankind. No one food proved to be magic as a
        preventive food. I believe we can thrive best by eating a wide variety of whole foods; and no sugar or white flour. These are (and always have been) the first culprits. Tragically, when the primitives were introduced to sugar and white flour their superior level of health deteriorated rapidly. This has been demonstrated time and again. During the last sixty or more years we have added in increasing amounts, highly refined and fabricated cereals and boxed mixes of all kinds, soft drinks, refined
        vegetable oils and a whole host of other foodless “foods”. It is also during those same years that we as a nation have installed more and more root canal fillings – and degenerative diseases have become rampant. I believe – and Dr. Price certainly proved to my satisfaction – that these simultaneous factors are NOT coincidences.” GEORGE MEINIG, D.D.S. author “Root Canal Cover-Up EXPOSED – Many Illnesses Result”

        “With absolutely no access to tooth brushes, floss, fluoridated water or tooth paste OR DENTISTS, the primitive peoples studied were almost 100% free of tooth decay.”

        This has to be one of the most astounding truths about “health care” in all of medicine!

        NO care is THOUSANDS times more salubrious than “Modern” care. This just touches the massive disinformation inbred in “health care”.

  5. the SilverSpoon crowd want to give all the rest of us a shot that will inhibit some important but no collaterall damage to a function.

    cas9/crispr and nanobot bacteriophages and nagalase inhibitors – anyone…

    BTW: most are made in china – and I never buy their imported dog food.

    200 more inoculations are in the ware house ready to be forced into your body and your children s body so we are all the same. No dis believers because the profits are so great ten familys will become billionaires and you become a farm animal.

    Why don’t they just group all of the bullshit they’re trying to shove up our butts all together – mainstreaming gender deviates, mainstreaming autism and other sicknesses, mainstreaming oncology butchery, promoting vaccines, pushing climate change (like it never changed before), endless “terrorism” fearmongering -> endless wars, GMO crap, glyphosate poison, WWIII with Russia, etc. because generally, the ignorant masses tend to subscribe to the entire package. This way they can much more efficiently get those believers out of our gene pool, giving us some little hope for the future.

  8. How about a counter campaign with pictures of the vaccine victims with the real numbers comparing those who were harmed by vaccines with those who got disease ?

  9. The usefulness of hydrogen peroxide is amazing. Gargling briefly and rinsing the mouth each morning with 3% Hydrogen Peroxide clears up minor tooth and gum and tonsil infections, and kills plaque. It also removes “morning mouth” odor. Getting used to the foaming doesnt take long, and if pressure in the mouth becomes uncomfortable, spitting some out into the lavatory is easy.
    Increasingly, genuine physicians are using hydrogen peroxide IVs to remove viruses and cancer cells from the blood. Hydrogen peroxide introduces oxygen into the blood, which destroys viruses and cancer cells. Sometimes several treatments are required, but hospitalization is not required and there are no harmful side effects. Of course, the field of “oncology” and “cancer research” disclaim everything outside of their standard $$ practices.

  10. A German scientist acquaintance supplied me (about 2008) with a list of viruses that had been created in the US Army biowarfare lab on Ft. Devens, MD. Most had been developed between the late 1950s and 1975. All the viruses such as H1N1 and subsequent H?N? that have been attributed to birds, pigs, cows or whatever originated in the US Army bioweapons lab on Ft. Devens, not birds, pigs, cows, or whatever. However, many millions around the world have been infected by the contaminated polio
    “vaccine”, which contained the monkey virus. Many millions more have been sickened by a pathogenic mycoplasma. It results in the diagnosis of AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s colitis,Type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Wegener’s disease, or collagen-vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer’s. All statin drugs worsen these conditions by hindering the production of cholesterol. A thorough discussion of infectious mycoplasma, to include remediation, is found at:
    The article is long, but very informative for all persons with one of the above illnesses.
