Since I can't always look at all of the sites I usually read during my day at work, I usually end up checking them when I get home. My work's proxy is somewhat wonky with the sites it allows and disallows. It both frustrates me and gives me no end of amusement to see Orac's site blocked by my proxy as a hate site. Makes it all worthwhile.
So, I get home to check to see what the scumbag is up to. You know, the checking up on the enemy type of thing. And lo and behold. Poor wittle David Dorkski is upset about something that Kim Stagliano wrote. Oh, Waaaaaaaahhhhh!!!!!
So, he begins his diatibe with the usual immature, 12 year old mentality verbal diarrhea that we all come to expect from his little pea brain.
"My irony meter exploded in a near-nuclear conflagration, leaving nothing but a sputtering, molten puff of plasma when I was referred to this gem from Kim Stagliano over at Age of Autism directed at the enemy of all anti-vaccine pseudoscience, that Dark Lord of Vaccination (to anti-vaccine loons) himself, Paul Offit:"
Seriously. Irony meter? And this guy is supposed to be a doctor? How old is he? And Mr. Offit is not the "Dark Lord of Vaccination," he's just the mouthpiece of his lords and masters, the Pharmaceutical giants. If he didn't want to be the face of the vaccination movement, I'm sure he would stop saying whatever it is they pay him to say.
So, he goes on to quote Kim Stagliano, then whimpers, moans and accuses her of projecting. Now, this is a tired anti-safe vaccination tactic known as the "I know you are but what am I?" defense. It's just as immature and even more nauseatingly boring.
He mentions in his usual whining and blathering way that it is not Doctors like Offit that are causing distrust in vaccines, but parents like me who have vaccine injured children.
Wrong! Wrong, wrong, wrong, you fucking nitwit!
See, here's the deal. The pro-safe vaccine crowd had nothing to do with the public distrust of the H1N1 vaccine. People were distrustful of it from day one, and the guerilla marketing technique of the Pharma industry just made them even more distrustful. Parents like me had nothing to do with this. Hell, Age of Autism has nothing to do with this. Do you really think, you fucking moron, that 41% of all Americans read Age of Autism? Or, maybe it's that you think that 41% of all Americans are parents of vaccine injured kids?
Or, maybe it's doctors, scientists, and wannabes who have made a game of insulting, harassing and ridiculing the pain that these parents and their children feel. Like, you, right, David?
And then, the comments from his sycophantic lickspittles are even better. Trying to paint Kim as "Dr. Evil." Ladies and Gents....these are supposed to be scientists and doctors. These are supposed to be the people we go to when we are sick. And they just nod their little bobble heads, agreeing with everything their overlord says. Hell, if he farted in the same room, they would probably all run to where he broke wind and try to bask in it's wretchedness.
Now I bet you are all gonna sleep so good tonight, huh?
Dorkski....pull your head out of your ass and grow the fuck up.
Last night, someone posting under the name of "JB" posted this:
"Oh Craig, so proud of your blog - you used even more profanity than me and kim
All of you reading this probably thought that this would be the one and only JB Handley. No. You see, the IP address for this individual is not consistent with the location of Mr. Handley. So, I called him on it and told him it was illegal to impersonate someone on the internet. He responded later that evening, and I mistakenly deleted his comment (still getting used to Blogspot and the way it does things). Here is what he wrote:
"WTF are you talking about? Do you think there's not more than one person in the world with the handle JB?"
Yes, there would be, my friend. But, reading your comment, you are leaving everyone the impression that you are Mr. Handley. Now, I will leave this up to the interpretation of my readers whether or not they believe that you were pretending to be Mr. Handley.
Here's what Texas has to say about what "JB" did:

So, this morning before work and while I was having my morning caffeine, I happened to glance over at Orac's hatesite and was shocked to see this gem in the comments section:
"I say let these anti-vaccination alarmists and their children die via some vaccine-preventable disease. Evolution at its finest.

I say this again; these are supposed to be Doctors and Scientists.
Now, to be fair, one of the posters over there, Chris, was rightfully appalled by Xenu's comment and was vehemently opposed to what was said. Thank you, Chris....you get much deserved Kudos for that.
Now, I'm wondering if Offit would be willing to post some of his "death threats" that parents of vaccine injured children have allegedly made to him. He SAYS that he has had death threats, but has not backed this up with evidence. So, this sure does sound anecdotal to me, yes? Now, we all know that we, the parents of vaccine-injured children, HAVE received death threats.
Oh, and Orac, in case you didn't guess....you're one of the 2 people I don't allow on this site.
