Can these people not be sued?

Jackie Fletcher has repeated an evidenceless claim found elsewhere on the web, designed purely to create panic about the MMR jab.

In June of 2000, the Center for Disease Control, the World Wealth Organization, the FDA, "leading" scientists and representatives of the pharmaceutical industry got together for a secret meeting.

Their focus was the growing public and scientific awareness that mercury used as a preservative in vaccines for children had unleashed an epidemic of autism.

The participants came to three conclusions:

1. They acknowledged the autism/mercury connection was true (or at least highly plausible)

2. They conspired to create a statistical smokescreen to obscure the science

3. They agreed not to disclose anything that took place at the meeting

This is a completely groundless claim, designed purely to stir up panic and stoke the fires of Fletcher's personal anti-vaccine agenda. It is presented with no evidence, nor any documentation to show that there may be any grain of truth to it.

It is, in short, an outright lie, repeated by Fletcher (who does her level best to come across as the reasonable face of anti-vax frothing). But she (and others) know that they can make and repeat this kind of mental conspiracy theory bollocks until the cows come home, and there's nothing that anyone can do about it.

She's an evil witch and wants locking up.

Completely secret meeting. Yet Jackie Fletcher found out about it?

Aye, right.

Thinking they have knowledge and insights us 'sheeple' don't is what massages the egos of the antivaxxers. Just like the 9/11 truthers and the lunar-landings-were-faked nutjobs
