I Guess It’s Opposite Day Because Jenny McCarthy Says She’s ‘Not Anti-Vaccine’

By  | 

jenny-mccarthyEveryone’s favorite anti-vax darling is at it again! Our old friend Jenny McCarthy is now claiming that “she never said she was anti-vaccine.” Ya know, because it’s opposite day. In other news, the sky is now green and I LOVE me some pro-life legislation .

Seriously though, we all know the score here. You can’t paint yourself as the poster girl of the anti-vaccine movement and then back track when you realize it’s hurting your career. Yet according to the op-ed piece she wrote for The Chicago Sun Times, that’s just what J-Sheezy is trying to do.

Literally the first line of the piece is “I am not anti-vaccine.” Ha ha ha ha!

Here’s the thing Jenny. Taking a hard line on a hot button issue like vaccines is serious business. This isn’t a magazine photo-shoot, you can’t airbrush your words away. According to the Chicago Sun Times:

My beautiful son, Evan, inspired this mother to question the “one size fits all” philosophy of the recommended vaccine schedule. I embarked on this quest not only for myself and my family, but for countless parents who shared my desire for knowledge that could lead to options and alternate schedules, but never to eliminate the vaccines.

Blatantly inaccurate blog posts about my position have been accepted as truth by the public at large as well as media outlets (legitimate and otherwise), who have taken those false stories and repeatedly turned them into headlines. What happened to critical thinking? What happened to asking questions because every child is different?


 Jenny, Jenny, Jenny. I’ve been following your crusade of misinformation for years now. Even if you hadn’t suggested that parents forego vaccines (and that’s a big if), saying things that are insanely inaccurate about them is just as bad. No it’s worse, because you’re pretending to be an expert on things you have zero understanding of.
