Anti-Vaxxer Calls Jimmy Kimmel’s Pro-Vaccine Stance ‘Hate Speech’

By  | 

vaccine vialDo you remember on Sesame Street when they used to sing a song called “One of These Things Is Not Like The Others?” Please sing it to yourself while evaluating the list below. Which of these things is not like the others–can you guess, kids?

A. Racism

B. Homophobia

C. Jimmy Kimmel telling people to vaccinate their damn kids

For most of you, the correct answer should be equally as apparent as it was when Big Bird was showing you three race cars and a toaster. But if you’re anti-vaxxer Mike Adams, things might get a little trickier.

Adams is the founder of the website NaturalNews, where he wrote a furious screed in response to Kimmel’s recent pro-vaccination video segment. If you missed it last week, here’s the bit from Jimmy Kimmel live where he complains about parents who are “more scared of gluten than they are of smallpox.” Give it a watch and see if you agree with Adams that it’s an “astonishing display of bigoted hate speech.”

Adams somehow construed that segment as “targeting children who have suffered brain damage from vaccines”, because Adams is a disingenuous jerk. No, you big dummy, he’s not making fun of vaccine-damaged children–he’s making fun of adults like you who refuse to take basic health precautions for their kids because of nebulous fears about ‘toxins’ and things that are ‘unnatural’ (such as not suffering through a case of the measles).
