The anti-vaccination movement is growing so fast it is almost impossible to keep track of everything that is happening. Social media is NOT the friend of social activists in most ways, but what it DOES provide is the ability to spread information quickly, and thoroughly, no matter how hard FaceBook tries to suppress it – and it does try to do that.
But, no matter how many barriers FaceBook puts up, social activists have figured out how to move right around them, ignoring the brainless advertising, and propaganda delivery, proceeding toward important information delivery.
One of the important activities social activists involved in the anti-vaccine movement have achieved is the outright elimination of racial strife.
And how was THAT done, you ask?
Los Angeles area resident Michelle Maher Ford, one day, ignoring years of socially perceived racial strife between blacks, whites, etc., picked up the phone and started calling activists in the black community trying to bring attention to the findings of the CDC whistleblower William Thompson, and what he explained to Brian Hooker about how little black boys were three times as likely to be injured by vaccines as other children. Fearless in her endeavor, Michelle reached EVEN into what some white people see as “the most angry of black activist groups, the Nation of Islam,” ultimately having a cordial meeting of minds with Minister Louis Farrakhan himself in his home.
And she struck gold…
