“Gimme That Old Time Religion… NOW!”

“Opening minds and angravating liberals since 2001”

“I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.”

Genesis 3:19  John 3:16

 

My Friends and Fellow Immune:

 

I have referred to the movie “Men in Black” in the past.  There is a part where the Tommy Lee Jones character tells the Will Smith character that he needs to get the “cheat sheets.”

The Smith character asks what the “cheat sheets” are and the Jones character replies that they are the periodicals that detail the comings and goings  of the intergalactic aliens.

Jones comes  back with a handful of tabloids such as the National Enquirer, The World and so on. Smith says that they are rubbish, they are the tabloids.  Jones says while that is true, that is where the information is.

And this is where we come to MoveOn.Org, or, as I prefer to call them: “ MorOn.Com.”

These ultra-Left wing wackos have been on the wrong side of the equation in virtually every situation. There have been one or two instances where a rational person might say “that is a good idea!”

But, just like the blind squirrel who can find his own nuts from time to time, MorOn being correct is a rare event indeed.

They are keen to support any whack-a-doodle idea, they support every nut-case candidate and they are very clever in their approach and funding.

Now, they boast something like eight-million members, hardly an exclusive club.  But, I signed up for their email updates years ago and that is all I do, yet, I am considered a “member.”

I have often joked that the cruelest irony for them would be that the founders and original members are the only true believers in their brand of socialism and the other 99.99% were people like you and I who troll their pages to see what the “intergalactic aliens” are up to.

One of the things they promote is their petition page.  Any mouth-breather and a computer can create their own petition.  Take a look at the petition page on their website and you will see petitions from all kinds of “members” from the truly whacko to the one-issue voter to the union bosses (yes, they use MorOn to spread their flavor of socialism) and more.

I don’t blame them. They are entitled to their opinions even if they disagree with mine. After all we have the Constitution and the freedom of speech.

Then there are the kinds of petitions that strain credulity. And that is where we are going today.

You see, you have to factor this into the prism that MorOn is a tool for the Left in particular and I posit that they are not above carrying water for the Maladministration.

When you consider when there is something that most people find anathema to be done that Biff wants to happen, he is quick to say that he as a “pen and a phone” and that if Congress is not willing to do what he wants he will “work around Congress.”  (Pity he never read the Constitution, criminal that people have not called him on that.)

But, when there is something that he does not want to do, all of a sudden, he has to consult Congress which is shorthand for  “I am a coward and I am trying to distance myself from this issue.”

When there is something truly despicable to be done, the powers-that-be always look for some willing stooge to get into the barrel. I am not saying this guy we will meet in moment a stooge and not just a mere tool, you be the judge. But if it quacks like an alleged AG…

Here is the top of the MorOn.Com email; that is all which is needed.  (The entire email is at the very end):
Dear New York member,

A MoveOn member named Paul Hogarth recently created a petition on our public petition website entitled “Sign     the petition: Ban belief-based vaccination exemptions”—and we’d like to know what you think of it.

The petition is addressed to Governors in 48 states, and reads:

The re-emergence of measles in the U.S. has shined (SIC)  a light on the dangers of allowing personal beliefs to trump public health.

Please introduce legislation in your state to ban all belief-based vaccination exemptions.

(NOTE: Should be “shone” as that is the past tense of “shine” in the sense of the shining of a light.  “Shined” is the past participle of “shine” intimating a reflection, if you will.)

Let’s deconstruct this, shall we? Do! Let’s!

I am addressed as a “New York” member.  Throw-away line? Nope.  That is designed to make this guy look like a local, to get my buy in.

Now, Paul Hogarth is described as a “member,” again, commonality.   We shall come back to Mr. Hogarth in a moment.

His petition wants you to ignore everything you have ever heard about infectious diseases, particularly those which have been all but eradicated in the US.

What he wants you to do is sign a petition that anyone who wants to opt out of childhood vaccinations based on religious beliefs may do so.

Does anyone see a problem with this?  Anyone see about a dozen problems?

First off, I can’t tell you about where you are but in virtually every state a child can not be enrolled in school without MMR immunizations.  Faith-based or not  heretofore there were virtually no incidences of Mumps, Measles or Rubella and there were no outbreaks. (And almost all of the incidences we have had in the past twenty years can be traced back to “foreigners.”)

Did I or did I say that when the Los Illegals came here that they were bringing diseases that we have eradicated? I did, yes, I recall.  And so did a lot of other and smarter people.

So, that allegation is equine scatology.  He is using a false argument to make his case.

Second, his clown is making people to make a leap of faith that all of a sudden “belief-based” peeps have decided not to immunize their kids.  Hello? Where is that proof?

Because of this irrational assertion people who have not the least bit of faith or belief-based thoughts will be encouraged to refuse immunization.

There is little doubt and overwhelming proof that these diseases can be traced back to immigrants, legal or not.

A more honest petition would be to change the verbiage in this petition from “belief-based” to “illegal alien.”

You see, this “petition” has nothing to do with measles.  In fact it has nothing to do with anything but an attack on religion.

Why do I say that?

Same reason this guy mentions “faith-based” rather than “religious.”  He tries to put an arms-length distance between what it is and what he wants you to think it is. Though as we will see, where he comes from that makes no difference.

Rather than literally preach to the choir, let’s get to the Cliff Notes of this issue.

IF there is a ban on exemption for immunizations on “faith-based” grounds, there is no longer a “separation of Church and State.” The State will now be able to dictate what Churches can and canNOT do.

IF they can say “no relief from immunizations” they will soon be able to say “no Bible study on Wednesday or Mass on Sunday or Shul on Saturday.”

Oh, you don’t think so?  Really?  You think that given half a chance in the next two years if Biff could close the Churches that he would not?

It comes down to this: Do you trust Biff?

OK, why am I getting worked up about this? Well, here is one reason and it is VERY disturbing.

The “author”, Paul Hogarth is very modesty described as a mere “member.”  No, he is far from that!  First off, he is a serial petition creator.  He hates just about everything.

So I decided to look into this chap.  I looked up his name in the interwebs then cross-checked those with social media and I believe I have found our boy.

(And why am I pretty certain it is he?  The first post on his Facebook page – as of 1427 on 11 Feb 2K15 –  is about the immunizations.)

He is:

  • Campaign Director of the Daily Kos
  • Lives in San Francisco
  • Part of a website that challenges the SF Chronicle
  • Additional petitions are of the extraterrestrial type
  • His contacts look like a Who’s Who of the Local Left
  • In solidarity with the illegals
  • In “solidarity” with LBGT and LS/MFT
  • And a heck of a lot more.

This chap is not what Phil Robertson would call a “Bible Person.” In fact as there is nothing to suggest anything religious, holy or moral about him. In face one can deduce that he is an amoral, Anti-American (though prolly thinks he is not) Anti-God rouser of the lowest and most ignorant of ovine rabble.

This is exactly the type of person if he was in the West Bank or some other such paradise would strap on a homicide vest and kill the enemy.

Who am I kidding.  He is a coward.  He would get someone else to do it. But he would secure the vest and drive the person to the site of the crime.

You see, he creates a cute little petition.  He uses small words.  He does not explain anything. He makes a non sequitor statement to make his case that is not accurate in any aspect. Then he simply asks politely to “pass this legislation.”

End in sight…

I love calling out the libs for their hypocrisy.  There is little doubt in my mind that this has anything to do with ultimately banning religion.  Prolly not Hogwart’s idea but he is fine with it, he is just carrying the water.

But, the hypocrisy is using part of the 1st Amendment to try to destroy another part of the 1st Amendment.  They are using freedom of speech to curtail freedom of religion.

And the whole “separation of Church and State” is going to come back to bite them in the butt if we can survive the next two years.

Thoughts?

(The rest of the email is at the very bottom.)
 

 

THE TEXT OF THE EMAIL
Dear New York member,

A MoveOn member named Paul Hogarth recently created a petition on our public petition website entitled “Sign the petition: Ban belief-based vaccination exemptions”—and we’d like to know what you think of it.

The petition is addressed to Governors in 48 states, and reads:

The re-emergence of measles in the U.S. has shined a light on the dangers of allowing personal beliefs to trump public health.

Please introduce legislation in your state to ban all belief-based vaccination exemptions.

 

Here’s what Paul wrote about it:

In every state except Mississippi and West Virginia, parents can legally choose to not vaccinate their children against common illnesses before enrolling them in school.

The consequence of these vaccination loopholes has been the re-emergence of diseases like the measles—an illness that had all but been eliminated in the U.S. in 2000.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are over 100 reported cases in more than a dozen states, and the U.S. is “likely to see more cases.”

Mississippi hasn’t seen a measles outbreak since 1992 and West Virginia, not since 1994. That’s because neither state permits children to enroll in kindergarten without getting their full roster of vaccines—no matter their parents’ personal or spiritual beliefs.

The anti-vaccine movement puts our most vulnerable populations at risk, including children under 12 months who simply cannot get vaccinated.

Public health mu st trump parental choice. Tell your governor to introduce legislation to ban all belief-based vaccination exemptions.

Can you click to let us know what you think?

 

We’ll decide whether to send this petition out to additional MoveOn members in your area based on your feedback.

In case you haven’t heard about it, MoveOn’s petition site allows anyone to start an online petition and share it with friends and neighbors to build support for their cause.

Thanks for all you do.

–Milan, Maria, Manny, Bobby, and the rest of the team
