Anti-Vaxxers Threaten Lawsuit Against Critic

I find it hard to believe that I could loathe anti-vaxxers more than I currently do. They’re already a superstitious cowardly lot that peddle scientific misinformation about how vaccines cause autism, dissuading gullible parents from vaccinating their children, and in turn, permitting the outbreak of otherwise preventable diseases, many of which had previously been extinguished.

And yet, even then, despite all of the damage they have caused, this loathsome lot manages to find new lows to stoop towards. Just last month, after a 12-year-old boy released a humorous video showing how there’s no proof that vaccines cause autism, anti-vaxxers obtained and released his personal information on-line.

Yes, anti-vaxxers were so butthurt by a gag video poking fun at them that they resorted to doxing a 12-year-old. These people are as fragile as feminists! And yet, all of that pales in comparison with their most recent moment of buttpain.

Currently, there’s a propaganda film documentary that was released by the king of anti-vaxxers, Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the quack behind the long-debunked “study” revealing the alleged link between vaccines and autism.

The movie does nothing but double-down on the dubious claim of the more than dubious study by the even more dubious doctor—but hey, when have facts ever mattered in propaganda films documentaries? (Michael Moore certainly doesn't need facts to makes millions in the box office for his fat anti-capitalist ass!)

Not many people are happy about this film peddling fact as fiction. One such person is Fiona O’Leary, a mother of autistic children who has Asperger’s Syndrome herself and who runs an organization for autism advocacy.

As you can probably guess, she’s not thrilled that the film spreads the lie that vaccines cause autism, and as such, has spoken out against it as a very vocal critic on her Facebook page.

And as you can probably guess, the anti-vaxxers aren’t happy that this lady has been shedding light on their blatant BS, so much so that the studio that released the film has sent her a cease-and-desist letter threatening to sue her if she continues hurting their feelings criticizing them:

Yes, you read that correctly: this movie studio is so threatened by an Irish mother of five criticizing their movie that they're willing to drag her to court in order to shut her up. Again, anti-vaxxers rival the fragility of feminists!

Do these people stand a chance in court? Probably not. But when Milo Yiannopoulos can be kicked off of Twitter for criticizing the new Ghostbusters movie and Facebook users can be arrested for criticizing the cops, such an infringement upon free speech isn’t exactly unimaginable—and it’s quite frightening!

Crap like this reveals how much our First Amendment rights are at stake from the collusion between the government and corporations. At this point, Orwell is rolling around in his grave so much that you could use him to generate electricity and solve the energy crisis.
