“We have just witnessed yet another example of the power of corporate interests censoring free speech, art, and truth.” Vaxxed, the movie
This is a sad story. It’s a morality play which shows what happens when you sell out to Big Business, corporate America.
Parent of child with autism, Robert De Niro, has been forced to pull an anti-vaccination documentary “Vaxxed” from the schedule of his own Tribeca Film Festival –
“A controversial anti-vaccination documentary has been pulled from the Tribeca Film Festival lineup after it was met with fierce criticism… The documentary claims that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention concocted a conspiracy to cover up the “true” reason for America’s rising autism diagnosis rates: vaccines.”
All De Niro wanted to do was screen the film in order to encourage further discussion on the subject. Apparently that wasn’t to be allowed even in a “fringe” film festival setting. De Niro said just yesterday: “Grace and I have a child with autism and we believe it is critical that all of the issues surrounding the causes of autism be openly discussed and examined,”
But when you are talking about vaccines, Big Pharma’s massive money making scheme, especially at a time when they are pushing for making about 17 or 18 vaccines mandatory for the entire population (not just the kids folks), even the Raging Bull doesn’t get to present an alternative view of the dangers of these things on the basis that simply discussing the growing evidence might “undermine the public health”
“Los Angeles Times columnist Michael Hiltzik wrote that the prestigious Festival was “sullying” its reputation by hosting the film. “Careless actions such as those of the Tribeca Film Festival don’t contribute to ‘dialogue and discussion,’ as the festival’s PR would have it; they just spread misinformation and pseudoscience and undermine public health,” he wrote.” Huffington Post
That’s the big talking point Big Pharma and their supporters are using as their slogan for making all these vaccines mandatory for every kid in the country: not bringing your child in for the vaccines will undermine the “public health”. It is almost medieval sounding, isn’t it? And yet, you have educated left-wingers at places like Tribeca repeating it as if it’s gospel.
The whole point of vaccines supposedly is if your kid gets one, then he’s protected from whatever the vaccine is for. So if Kid “B” doesn’t take one, he might get mumps or whatever, but your kid will not. That’s the whole point.
But then again, that really isn’t the point, is it?
Because if Kid “B” does just fine without the vaccine, like 99.9% of the unvaccinated kids do these days, then OTHERS will question whether or not they want to spend the money on the 17 or so MANDATORY vaccines they are being forced to give their children… especially if their is a link to something like autism detected.
And that’s the point. That’s why it has to be made mandatory for all kids so there is nothing to compare results to and that is why people like Robert De Niro can’t be allowed to present the other side to the argument, especially if it’s relatively well researched and presented like it is in Vaxxed.
And ESPECIALLY if the presentation includes showing the collusion between the CDC and Big Pharma to cover up the possible connection between vaccines and autism.
Now, imagine what the story would be out of Flint if it talking about the government cover-up of the lead in the water supply wasn’t allowed. I wonder how many films being screened at Tribeca this year deal with that.
Why is that allowed? Because they are covering up for STATE crimes… not CORPORATE ones. And in case you haven’t figured it out yet, the privatization of water systems is the ultimate goal.
It hasn’t been reported yet, but I am sure that Big Pharma got their friends at AT&T to yank Robert’s chain and force him to withdraw the selection from their schedule. Yep. AT&T is the major corporate sponsor of the Tribeca Film Festival since 2011 and are now their “Presenting Sponsor” with their logo right next to Tribeca’s on the top of their webpage.
“Our relationship with AT&T reflects a shared commitment to New York and the cultural community,” said Robert De Niro, co-founder, Tribeca Film Festival. “We’re very grateful for their support of Tribeca.”
This is what you get when you sell out. Just ask Amy Goodman over at Democracy NOW, Robert. She’ll tell you.
You may have started the festival for the right reasons, but Big Business owns it now and you do, show, what they tell you to or allow you to. And that’s a fact.
The makers of Vaxxed have put out a statement on their website. It reads in part:
“To our dismay, we learned today about the Tribeca Film Festival’s decision to reverse the official selection of Vaxxed: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe.
Robert De Niro’s original defense of the film happened Friday after a one-hour conversation between De Niro and and Bill Posey, the congressman who has interacted directly and at length with the CDC Whistleblower (William Thompson) and whose team has scrutinized the documents that prove fraud at the CDC.” Vaxxed, the movie
You can contact them here to find out where you will be able to watch it. But my guess is, it will be banned across this country from one side to the next. Big Pharma is pushing for mandatory vaccines. That’s trillions of dollars for them every year and a guaranteed profit margin from now until the end of time. And when you think about it, when you consider how they fully expect to use the TPP and the TTIP to replace socialized medicine across the globe with their for-profit model, they fully expect to be mandating vaccines all across the Asia Pacific and the European Union not that long from now. After all, there is “public health” to think about.
Just imagine how much that is worth. We’re talking Wrath of God money.
So yeah, uppity De Niro and his autistic kid don’t get to present any other side of the story other than Big Pharma’s side (pharmacide? can that be a word now?) not even at his own little film festival which no one gives a shit about except a bunch of petite bourgeoisie leftists in New York who fancy themselves as “out of the box” thinkers. Guess not.
Please help keep us up and running if you can.
