Dr. Paul Offit is a vocal advocate for the vaccine industry. Having created a vaccine himself, the RotaTeq vaccine, it comes as no surprise that he is an active shill for the pharmaceutical industry. Even after the RotaTeq vaccine was linked to some 200 infant deaths in 2011, Offit has remained a dedicated defender of Big Pharma and their toxic injections. Offit is also known for spreading untruths about vaccine safety; in a 2002 interview, he even went so far as to declare that an infant’s immune system is capable of responding to 10,000 vaccines at once.
Now, recently uncovered video footage shows Dr. Offit admitting on tape that vaccination is a “violent act.” Those are big words coming from a man who has consistently lied about the supposed safety and efficacy of vaccines, even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. In an interview from March 2011, the Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia spoke with Dr. Offit about his book attacking the families of vaccine-injured children and those who have chosen to abstain from the corrupt and dishonest vaccination program.
Vaccine shill admits inoculations are an act of violence
In the interview, Dr. Offit states, “Vaccinations aren’t easy. This isn’t an easy thing to do. We ask a lot of our citizens. To get as many as 26 inoculations in the first few years of life, and five shots at one time. It’s hard to do that, especially given that vaccination is a violent act, you pin the child down, you give them this biological agent against their will. The biological agent generally isn’t understood well by the parent, and to some extent not understood all that well by the physician.” [emphasis added]
Offit is known for severely downplaying the risks of vaccination, stating that babies could be safely injected with thousands of vaccines at once — even though research clearly states otherwise. A study from 2007 found that inoculating infants with multiple vaccines in one sitting dramatically increases their risk of experiencing a cardiorespiratory event — which is hardly evidence of safety. Courts recently ruled the Gardasil vaccine kills people, if that’s any indication of what inoculations really do.
In a recent article for The Daily Beast, Offit reportedly mocks Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for his work raising awareness about thimerosal and other dangerous vaccine ingredients. “Nonetheless, in 2014 Kennedy published a book titled, Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak — an ironic title, given that the science already had spoken,” Offit taunts, further proclaiming that thimerosal “hasn’t been used in vaccines given to young children since 2001.”
Offit fails to note that thimerosal is still used in the flu vaccine. Even in production lots where it is no longer used as a preservative, manufacturers can still use it as a “processing agent,” which doesn’t have to be included on product labels.
And when it comes to Offit’s claim “the science has already spoken,” on vaccines and autism, there’s another bone to pick. In an interview with Philly.com, he states that science gets things wrong many times before gaining a more complete understanding. Offit looks to the lobotomy as an example: Once lauded as a cure-all, the procedure is now known to be extremely dangerous and damaging to the recipient. Ironically, vaccines are sometimes derided as “chemical lobotomies.”
