Christie Blatchford on those who insist that swine flu is all a big mind-control scam by the pharmaceutical-industrial complex, man:
After a full day spent on Mother Web, trying to figure out why so many Canadians are afraid of the H1N1 vaccine and not planning to get it – as per the online poll conducted by Strategic Counsel for The Globe and published this Monday – my favourite discovery is an innocuous sounding sheet called Vaccination 101.
I found it on the Personocratia site, which features someone named Ghis, who used to be a Quebec doctor before she lost her marbles (and her licence to practise, for life) and took up the principles of Applied Idessic Consciousness.
What sounds at first blush like it might be a rudimentary pro-and-con discussion is in fact a two-page number that describes the vaccines as “biological weapons of mass destruction for targeted populations,” warns they may include microchips to “facilitate mind control at a distance,” and, best of all, “because of their neurotoxic effects,” announces that they “produce psychopaths.”
And then there is the Health Ranger, a guy named Mike Adams, and his NaturalNews site, also in the Top 10. Mr. Adams quotes the Dalai Lama, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi a lot, and his Health Ranger Habits include “no visits to M.D.s or western medical doctors,” no prescription drugs or pharmaceuticals and no “following the … ridiculous food guide” health agencies advocate. He is 35 and to judge by the many self-portraits on the site, a looker, which may be why a half-million people are reading him a month, as he says they are.
Mr. Adams is quoted on another “natural flu prevention” site run by Richard Seah, a “photographic artist, writer, journalist, web designer and teacher of natural health and macrobiotics” who is based in Singapore. He begins from a position of skepticism about what he calls “the germ theory of disease” and appears to believe that H1N1 is man-made.
Via @JohnGushue. I think I’ll stick with “western medical doctors,” thanks.
