Rob Schneider is pretty funny.
His latest joke is a satirical letter sent to California Governor Jerry Brown’s office claiming to possess documents that prove the center for Disease Control has hidden data showing that African-American kids are placed at high risk of developing autism from vaccines–hilarious!
Yes, that’s right, folks — California just experienced a record measles outbreak and a whooping cough epidemic as a result of children not being properly vaccinated because they listen to these morons, but Schneider said that he was “compelled” to share his evidence that a CDC report was “suppressed” and “fraudulently changed.”
Schneider wrote in the letter, posted on The Canary Party’s web site:
” As a concerned citizen of the State of California, I feel compelled to share with you proof the CDC committed fraud (I have copies of the original CDC report that was later suppressed and fraudulently changed). One disturbing disclosure, AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILDREN were and still are THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY PERCENT more likely to develop Autism under the current Vaccine MMR schedule. This according to the original CDC study in 2001.”
Schneider appears to be referencing a 2004 letter to the CDC regarding a study of African-American children that recently surfaced, and quickly became the latest rally point for people who still desperately cling to their long-debunked beliefs that vaccines cause autism.
The CDC explained that the results of the study were due to issues with the sample rather than a link between vaccines and autism.
“ The findings revealed that vaccination between 24 and 36 months was slightly more common among children with autism, and that association was strongest among children 3-5 years of age. The authors reported this finding was most likely a result of immunization requirements for preschool special education program attendance in children with autism.”
Unfortunately for the world, anti-vaxxers are not concerned with facts.
“A top Scientist and Researcher for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Dr. William Thompson PHD, who did the major research safety study for the Measles Mumps and Rubella Vaccine (MMR) has come forward as a whistleblower and admitted that the MMR study was in fact fraudulent.”
In 2012, Schneider railed against a law that requires parents to speak to a doctor about the risks involved in not vaccinating children before sending their kids to school, calling California lawmakers “Nazi’s [sic]” for wanting
Obviously, attempting to save children’s lives and prevent outbreaks is just what Hitler would do. Hilariously, the law was not passed when Schneider posted this; it had simply been advanced to the state Senate for a vote.
In his letter, he reaffirmed his opposition to parents being properly informed about the risks associated with their irresponsible decision making.
“Since I have opposed this undemocratic and onerous legislation (and Law) from its inception, I have kept up on how it has affected families in California. Now there is more reason than ever to be concerned, even outraged, by the CDC and by AB 2109.”
