Everything old is new yet again, as Brownstone Institute’s Alan Lash recycles old antivax tropes about doctors supposedly being in the thrall of big pharma and therefore untrustworthy.
The antivax lie that vaccines are killing lots of people long predates COVID-19, but now the idea of the “vaccine holocaust” has reached the ridiculously implausible proportions of 20 million dead and 2 billion injured. How did antivaxxers do this?
Great Barrington Declaration author Martin Kulldorff, who is also the “scientific director” of the Brownstone Institute, a public health science denialist right wing “think tank,” is promoting an antivax narrative about “natural immunity” against COVID-19, because of course he is.
The Brownstone Institute, “spiritual child of the Great Barrington Declaration,” just went full on hard core antivax (and fascist), just as Orac has been predicting.
Cranks love to cry “Persecution!” So it’s no surprise that GBD authors are striking back against critics with that narrative. Again.
