PALO ALTO, CA – Pro-vaccine advocates are known for being bullies, especially when dealing with anti-vaccine advocates who make claims about the dangers of vaccines.
“All I said was that vaccines are full of toxins and that it is a FACT they are causing the rise in chronic diseases,” explained anti-vaccer Nancy Heimer. “Then this pro-vaccine NAZI comes from out of nowhere and starts demanding that I back up my claim with evidence. These pro-vaccine crazies are nothing but online bullies.”
According to Heimer, the harassment didn’t end there. The pro-vaccine advocate, Mark Stoddart, then proceeded to post links from peer-reviewed journals proving that vaccines were safe and not causing chronic diseases.
“It was horrible, just horrible. He started posting all these links to study after study, making me look like a fool. It was harassment and bullying, plain and simple,” said a visibly shaken Heimer. “I don’t know how these people sleep at night.”
Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident. According to Sharyl Attkisson, a former CBS reporter and now an anti-science, anti-vaccine blogger, this type of bullying and harassing goes on all the time.
“It’s what I call “astro-turfing”. Basically it’s when anyone who is pro-vaccine argues with an anti-vaccer. Their favorite thing to do is ask for “proof” and “evidence” of our claims. It’s really awful.”
Attkisson and other anti-vaccine cult members are petitioning to have all pro-vaccine comments deleted from the internet in the interest of fairness.
