It is claimed by the vivisection industry that animal “research” and testing are vital in the development of vaccines, as well as animal substances being needed as vaccine ingredients. Strangely enough, it appears that many “progressive” socialist vegans and animal activists have no problem with all that, as long as President Trump isn’t involved. I’ve seen several Trump despising animal activists, vegans and anti-vaxxers promoting Bernie Sanders as our next President, and find that a bit bizarre. Unless they just don’t know what’s up with him and the rest of their liberal heroes, in contrast to the “evil stupid rich orange man” (as they refer to our president among other scathing insults) and crew.
So, I gathered some info…several links, so please come back for the rest:
To those who want everyone to “feel the Bern”…Sanders on vaccines, from 2015: https://vaxxter.com/where-does-bernie-sanders-stand-on-vaccines/ and from 2016: http://www.trueactivist.com/bernie-sanders-stance-on-vaccinations-is-likely-to-surprise-you/
Original slate of 2020 presidential candidates stances on vaccines, from last year: Here, by far, the least tyrannical on vaccines are Trump and possibly the few who didn’t (dare?) respond to the question: https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/claudiakoerner/2020-presidential-candidates-vaccines-measles-health
NOTE that the absolute worst there is the man who walked out in a huff at Trump’s state of the union address on February 4…Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio who said, “I believe mandatory immunizations and vaccinations are critical to keeping our families, our kids, and our communities safe.”
MANDATORY, i.e. FORCED, whether you like it or not.
Both sides’ numbers regarding vaccines: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/first-read/numbers-republicans-democrats-vaccination-debate-n298606, showing that Republicans and Independents are more likely to oppose mandatory vaccinations, and that as time goes by, Republicans become LESS likely to say vaccinations should be required, while the liberals go further in the opposite direction.
But, for Republicans (or anyone) to express any vaccine doubts or opposition publicly is political suicide, with the “scientific community” (pharmaceutical industry) being so powerful and overwhelmingly in favor of forced vaccines.
Regarding the Congressman from Glendale, CA, ADAM SCHIFF, who wants “counseling” for vaccine resisters: https://thetruthaboutvaccines.com/adam-schiff-lies/
