And if a couple of the outbreaks continue to spread and aren't stopped by September the US will lose its status as having measles eliminated

You have any evidence any of these cases are linked the her in the slightest way?

Hollywood needs a movie where the strident antivaxxer lady dies of measles. Maybe offer the lead role to Jenny McCarthy.

The Measles League is a pretty shiatty superhero team.

Yeah, it sucks when you successfully repel Thanos's army, only to get put on trial for war crimes.

There's your problem right there.

That's HALF the problem.  What about the other 430 cases?  How many of them are Orthodox Jews living in New York?

I wouldn't bet on that. Seems her bar's set pretty low.

1000 cases of measles won't do us in, but millions of morons just might.

Be real funny if the real reason was Native Americans bringing blankets to the illegal aliens.

There's some in Rockland County above the city. You guessed it, Orthodox Jews.

Many of whom eat this anti-vaxxer sh*t right up. There are some influential voices in those communities who allege that the CDC and major drug companies (including former Nazi-supporting Bayer) are in cahoots to hoodwink parents out of their hard earned money and lay the infrastructure for mass extermination.

Andrew Wakefield, Jenny McCarthy and Del Bigtree are hugely influential in the Orthodox cases and I lay the blame on them.

Americans are bringing the opiodes, smuggled firearms and the ancient deadly plagues. BUILD THE WALL, BUILD THE WALL! And the Americans will pay for it!

"Voices such as Jenny McCarthy's have proven to be influential, sweeping fear and distrust into parents' minds by parading as "autism experts". Social media and television talk show hosts, such as Oprah Winfrey, played a big role in this miseducation by giving credence to the campaign. This has caused vaccination rates to sustain a surprising drop in some Western countries [2]. The decrease in vaccinations has led to recent outbreaks of diseases that were thought to be "eliminated", such as measles."

You don't find it odd that these outbreaks are in mostly insular communities who have probably never heard of Jenny McCarthy?
 
2019-06-06 01:55:20 PM  
Does the CDC know who brought them back into our country?
 
2019-06-06 01:59:45 PM  

covfefe: Just a few measly cases!


An old friend of mine (a normally intelligent person who is in the anti-vax camp) used just that sort of reasoning.  "There's only 800 or so cases of measles.  That isn't bad!  You'd expect more if it was so contagious."

Um...that's because just about everybody is VACCINATED, you farkwit.

I asked her to look up measles infection rates and death rates in the 1950s, from before the invention of the vaccination.  I don't think she ever did.

The PEACH pamphlet played a big part in the Rockland measles outbreak, and the PEACH organization that puts it out seems to have somehow managed to maintain its anonymity, which is quite incredible given what they have caused:

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/measles-​o​utbreak-tracking-down-the-people-behin​d-anti-vaccine-pamphlet/

Some of what's in the pamphlet is very pro-Trump:

The guide picks and chooses from vaccine history. It notes a meeting between Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. - a vocal critic of vaccines - and President Trump. After the meeting, a spokesperson for Kennedy said that Trump "was exploring the possibility of forming a commission on Autism." (Plans for the commission were stalled as of November 2017.)
Trump won heavily ultra-Orthodox sections of Brooklyn by a wide margin in the 2016 election, and the community has maintained its support for Trump even has his popularity has waned.

This is the thing - Russian propaganda trolls spread the anti-vax b.s. to hurt the U.S.

And that was as successful as their election interference, so...yeah.
