How the anti-vaccine lobby resembles the BNP.

Anti-vaxers aren't "pro" anything except disease. They're very pro-lethal disease. They'd not admit that though, so I'll let it pass for now.

Have you noticed though, that they like to claim (Jenny McCarthy's a regular offender on this one) that they're pro-"safe vaccines" - although they never explain what would need to be done to make them "safe" in their eyes.

They're lying.

You see, if groups like Generation Rescue and JABS were really pro-safe vaccines, they's either state what should be done to make the vaccines safe - or they'd be putting money into vaccine research - in order to make vacines safer.

They do neither.

I'm now going to turn one of the anti-vaxers' arguments back on them. They're always keen to label the medical "establishment" and anyone who doesn't agree with their point of view as "fascist" [1] [2] [3] (there are plenty more) , but in reality, they're the ones who resemble the fascist British National Party (BNP). The BNP have no positive policies - every one of their policies boils down to "send 'em all back", despite all the evidence that shows that this isn't even remotely addressing the problem, and is even less of a solution. Financial problems? Fault of the immigrants - send 'em all back. Crime? Fault of the immigrants - send 'em all back. Poor school results? Send 'em all back.

The anti-vaxers are the same. Any medical problem - it's the vaccines. Autism? It's the vaccines. AIDS? It's the vaccines. Allergies? It's the vaccines.

See what there is in common here? A need to blame someone else, a lack of positive intent, a lack of reasoned thought, a vitriolic hatred of anyone with differing views…

I'm sure I could go on, but there you have it. Anti-vaxers are the medical equivalent of the BNP.
