Medical Racism: The New Apartheid

The following is a transcript of this video from the “Medical Racism” website.

– Hi, I’m Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. And I’m here to introduce a film called “Medical Racism : The New Apartheid,” and my group the Children’s Health Defense made it in conjunction with a number of civil rights groups and groups that advocate for the rights and the condition and the health of African-Americans. And it’s important that you watch this film because we all need to take responsibility for our own healthcare. And you cannot do that unless you have the information. And what we try to do with this film is not to tell you whether to take a vaccine or not but how to ask the right questions about what kind of vaccines that you wanna take. Thank you very much.

– [Female Reporter 1] Drug make Pfizer says new test results show its vaccine candidate is 95% effective.

– [Female Reporter 2] Those in the trial from both Medina and Pfizer are describing the side effects.

– [Male Reporter] The two-dose vaccine given three weeks apart is being called one of the biggest medical breakthroughs in the century.

– People have heard that black and Hispanic people are particularly vulnerable, but you know nationally black people are dying at 2.4 times the rate of white people. That’s 21% of the COVID-19 deaths are black people. This is according to the COVID tracking project.

– Just look at healthcare workers around the world, there are 60 million healthcare workers, they deserve to get the vaccine first. And then you have to start to tear from there based on the countries and the populations. But you know, here in the United States, really it’s going to be black people who really should get it first and many indigenous people.

– So you really have a responsibility to yourself and a societal and community responsibility to be part of this broad protection. So the first thing you might want to say to my African American brothers and sisters is that the vaccine that you’re gonna be taking was developed by an African-American woman. And that is just the fact.

– I think there’s several reasons blacks are dying from COVID-19. I don’t think it’s just blacks. The media tends to kind of sway you in a direction they want you to go. So you just kinda gotta do the research and kind of protect your inner circle.

– I know there’s a little much of black people I know that’s actually still alive, so nah, I don’t believe in it.

– I don’t think a lot of black people are just dying, I think black people are dying from eating unhealthy foods.

– We are affected disproportionately because of vaccinations, because of the misuse of proper care inside of the circumstances. So it’s, it’s not something I believe, it’s something that’s to be fact into be researched on your own so you can understand why it is a fact.

– Tell us more about the sampling of people who participated in these trials, is it a racially and ethically diverse group and have the vaccines been equally effective for people of different backgrounds and ages?

– At least with Pfizer’s vaccine, it looks as if the, the response from people over 65 is just about as effective as for everybody else. So that’s really encouraging since old people are the ones who are most at risk of dying of this disease.

– I don’t really think the vaccine is necessary, besides just taking care of yourself and exercise and eat well, and try to stay your distance from everyone that you can, but otherwise from that, I don’t think it’s safe, cause I don’t know the side effects from it.

– I’m gonna have to I’ll have no other alternative, I already took mine. I can’t go around my family and I might be exposed to some I don’t know, because you don’t know. None of us know. Well I don’t know if you got it, if he got it, who got it. You are one of the sick. Only thing I know is they said, if I take this and I’m not going to expose nobody else.

– [Interviewer] Do you believe them?

– I took the deal.

– I don’t know what to believe anymore. But as far as black people dying from it or anyone particular, I’m not, I’m not for sure. I don’t know if it’s all a propaganda.

– As a native American, I can’t trust what the government puts out because it’s already destroyed the Cherokee nation with smallpox. That was very, very detrimental to my people. They did nothing of it, they almost eradicated us.

– I’ve heard of the Tuskegee Institute program where they took African-American men and shot them up with syphilis, and they wanted to study and experiment on all these black men. And they constantly were telling them, “We’re giving this to you to cure you.” But all they were doing was making black men sicker and sicker until they die. So once again, the government of the United States wants to study you, whatever they’re trying to give to you, and that’s how I feel about the COVID-19. I’m not gonna be their Guinea pig to be studied on.

– Well, the Tuskegee experiment of 1932 is the most striking, because we have very hard and clear evidence that the government and public agencies actually used black men as Guinea pigs.

– They weren’t, the CDC wasn’t gonna stop the Tuskegee experiment. What happened is they had a whistleblower who came forward and told one of the Kennedys, “Hey this is what we’ve been doing, I feel really bad about it. We’re watching these guys with uh syphilis, and we’re just monitoring them. They think they’ve been treated, but they haven’t.”

– I had been around the issue of intellectual disabilities since I was a kid. If you’re in my family, you grow up with that issue because we had intellectual disabilities in our family, going back generations, and our family has been leading, you know led the civil rights movement for advocacy for people with intellectual disabilities. My uncle passed some of the pioneering legislation and wrote in when he was president John Kennedy, my aunt Eunice in 1968, founded the special Olympics from when I was eight years old or nine years old, I was working every weekend during autumn and the spring time as a counselor and a hugger, at Camp Shriver, which later became the Special Olympics. And so I’ve been exposed to this issue my whole life. And then in the summer of 2005, a woman came to my house and she had a big pile of scientific studies, her name was Sarah Bridges. She was a psychologist from Minnesota, her son had gotten autism from a mercury vaccine.

– So my child was compensated, these compensation packages are often millions of dollars. There’s nothing that goes to the parent, it’s all done by a third party and an annuity. In 10 years, nobody has ever, ever followed up with our family about A, how is your child doing? He was brain damaged by a vaccine, B, wow your child has autism and was compensated, maybe we should look at these children and figure out what is special about your kid, can we learn something about genetics?

– She had a pile of scientific studies and she put it on my front porch and she said, “I’m not leaving here to read this.” I started down the rabbit hole, I started calling up the regulators because of my family’s long history with people like Francis Collins and Tony Fauci, and you know, the leadership at CDC, HHS, et cetera. I was able to get people on the phone and I began asking them questions about what I was reading in the science. And it became very clear to me very fast that either the top regulators in the country were completely unfamiliar with the vaccine safety science or in some cases they were lying about it.

– The eight men who are survivors of the syphilis study at Tuskegee, are a living link to a time not so very long ago that many Americans would prefer not to remember, but we dare not forget. To our African-American citizens, I am sorry that your federal government orchestrated a study so clearly racist, that can never be allowed to happen again. It is against everything our country stands for.

– There is a history in the United States, as we all well know of mistreatment by African-Americans specifically when it came to trials, clinical trials. We all know of the Tuskegee experiment, we know of Henrietta Lacks and when her cells were taken, so we still need to get treated. We need to be in clinical trials. So what we do at the National Medical Association is to give our people the truth. We acknowledged the fact that there were issues in the past, but we also acknowledge the fact that we must be involved in these clinical trials and must have a degree of trust. So what I do is I hate to say, trust me, okay? I’m not asking necessarily to trust the whole medical establishment. Trust me, trust us. We understand.

– I remember a story my grandmother told me once, and at the time I didn’t fully understand what she meant but I listened. Her last child she had, he was born with intellectual disabilities. So I asked her, how does that happen? And she said, I’ll tell you how it happened. My grandparents were sharecroppers and they still lived on a plantation in the sixties and the early seventies. And she told me, she said, “Everyone was in the field, except for eight of us, the eight women who were about to deliver, we were all pregnant. The white coats came around.” And she called white coats, she referred to doctors as white coats. She said, “When the white coats came around, they gave us a pox shot.” And she said, “As we all delivered, we all had children with affliction.” Every last one of them, those eight babies ended up with intellectual disabilities. And she said, “We’d never seen it before in our community.”

– When I think about medical atrocities and just killing the black body in general, the name that pops into my head is Dr. Marion Sims.

– He perfected his gynecological surgical techniques by working with black enslaved women. And there was no issue of consent, he either bought them from their owners, or he rented them from their owners. And he put them in a sort of makeshift cabin at the back of his house in Montgomery, Alabama, where of course he had complete privacy and he proceeded to do a series of surgeries on them.

– In his memoirs, he noted that, “Lucy’s agony was extreme, she was much prostrated and I thought she was going to die.” That was before the days of anesthetics and the poor girl on her knees, bore the operation with great heroism and bravery. Why is this relevant today? Because they will kill us, they will mutilate us, and they will say we fought with heroism and bravery.

– It is an abomination and an atrocity to have him be considered the father of obstetrics gynecology, and I am pleased that with the help of the National Medical Association in New York, a statue of W. Marion Sims was taken down.

– There is some medical evidence that shows that black women are the group that’s least believed by the medical industry. With my third child, we tried to have another VBAC, but I could tell there was something wrong as I was giving birth to my son, and I felt something, and I was yelling that I felt like I was tearing, and the doctor told me, “No, just push him out.” And my mother thankfully, was in the room with me and it had to be my mother who almost physically grabbed the doctor and said, “If she says there’s something wrong, there’s something wrong”, because I was begging for a cesarean, whereas in my second childbirth, I said, under no circumstances, will I have a cesarean. I was begging for a cesarean with the third child. Well, when they opened me up, my uterus was rupturing. They didn’t believe me, had my mother not been there, when your uterus ruptures you die. If they hadn’t believed me, and my mother hadn’t been there to advocate for me, my children probably wouldn’t have a mother right now.

– Millions of human beings in scores of countries will be alleviated, and many, many thousands of lives will be saved.

– When I was a kid, I got three vaccines. Today’s children get 72 doses of 16 vaccines. And the big change began at 1989. And the reason it began was because we passed the Vaccine Act in 1986 and gave immunity from liability to vaccine companies and suddenly vaccines became very profitable. The courts have been eliminated. They’ve actually written a statute saying you cannot sue them no matter how negligent they are, no matter how grievous your injury, no matter how toxic their ingredients, that if you get injured or your child gets injured, you cannot get redress in a court.

– The Tuskegee experiment that took place from 1932 to 1972, the CDC promised us that an experiment like this would never happen again, but yet, in 1989 there was a Los Angeles times article that came out, that revealed a startling truth, that the CDC admitted that they experimented on 1500 black and Latino boys in Los Angeles, without the parents knowing that this was an experimental test.

– The 1989 experiment in South central LA, they did is they actually, without the parents’ consent. We’re giving them, giving their babies a measles vaccine, that was four times as potent as the one that had been approved by the FDA to give, eventually what happened is they had to stop the experiment because there was a whistleblower once again, but um also what was happening is as they were running these same studies concurrently in Haiti and in other countries, with people of African descent, they realized that the children were developing all types of extreme auto-immune illnesses, so they had to, they had to stop the experiment.

– This vaccine was known to have damaged boys in Haiti, in other African countries, but yet what was promised was fail

– In August, 2014, Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention worked with a whistle blower attorney to provide my office with documents related to a 2004 CDC study that examined the possibility of a relationship, between mumps, measles, rubella, vaccines and autism. In a statement released in August 2 0 1 4, Dr. Thompson stated, “I regret that my coauthors and I omitted omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal of pediatrics, all the authors and I met and decided sometime between August and September ’02, not to report any race effects for the paper. Sometime soon after the meeting, we decided to exclude reporting any race effects, the coauthor scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four coauthors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.

– [William] Oh my God, I cannot believe we did what we did, but we did.

– William Thompson was and still is an investigator at the CDC. So in 2004, and this was after, you know, there there were starting to get some rumblings about does the MMR cause autism. So the CDC decided to do the definitive study. What they did was they looked at the timing of the MMR. They took a bunch of kids in the Atlanta area which is where they’re at, and then looked at, did the timing of when these kids got the vaccine determine was there association between that and the MMR and literally they were throwing away data. They changed the study design, they were throwing away data so that there wouldn’t be an association, when you put that data back in, and we didn’t know about this until William Thompson sort of fessed up, became a whistleblower and said this happened black boys in particularly 3.36, 3.4 times more likely to develop autism, if they got that MMR vaccine before they were three years old versus after they’re three years old. And again, we routinely give the MMR between 12 and 15 months, so it was a big deal.

– [William] Here’s what I told her. I told her that the CDC has put the research 10 years behind, all right? Because the CDC has not been transparent, we’ve missed 10 years of research because the CDC is so paralyzed right now, by anything related to autism.

– [Man] Right.

– [William] They’re not doing what they should be doing.

– [Man] Right.

– [William] They’re afraid to look for things that might be associated. So there’s still a lot of shame with that.

– In order to try to get my son not vaccinated for the MMR vaccine, we had to, first started with his school, because of SB 277, the rules had changed and at that point, they basically told us that without a medical exemption, you you would be required to be fully compliant. When I was conducting my research at that time the MMR vaccine was kind of put at the forefront of, of being a concern. I schedule an appointment with my son’s pediatrician and we basically explained to her, and we brought documentation that explained what constitutes a medical exemption. And one of the key things was immunocompromised but as well family history. And we also brought up as something I hadn’t brought up before, which was the National Vaccine Injury Act. And the fact that there was zero liability in relation to this. So it, it almost, it turned into more of a listen you work for us and you have no liability, if you injure our child, we presented you with the information that you need to, you know give us what we’re asking for. And what you’re telling us is that you don’t care and that’s very concerning.

– She wants chips. All right, let’s get them ready. Samaj was born healthy, he was child number four for me, didn’t notice anything different or odd or strange from his birth. He got his first shot in a doctor office, a month later he got another shot, it was the shot after his first month shot where things took a turn. He received three shots in one day, it wasn’t until his cheeks began to get red, a rosy red, it was as if he was, the only way that I could explain it burning from the inside. I called the doctor immediately. I told the doctor that I think that my son was having an allergic reaction to the shot. And the doctor told me that is nothing to really be concerned with. It’s not something that will reoccur because that will be the last time that he would take the shot. It wasn’t until the following day, and he just was looking, like a blank look on his face, he just was like gazing into nowhere. So what I did was I clapped my hands in front of him and he didn’t flinch, respond, have that natural reflex, nothing, none of that. I even yelled at the top of my lungs, “Boo! Rah!”, no reaction, no response. And it was then that I knew something had changed about my baby.

– [Samaj] Mom!

– Hey, you ready for me to log in?

– Mm hm.

– All right, awesome. Okay, so I have to go to the dentist today to take care of some stuff.

– [Samaj] Mm hm.

– And then, I’ll be back home okay? So Mari’s here.

– [Samaj] Okay.

– All right, if you need something you let her know, if you need help let her know okay?

– Okay.

– Sure. You got your cell phone?

– Yeah.

– One day I just was so frustrated because, I thought to myself, just being selfish, probably there’s no way that I can have a child who can’t do for himself. So it was the day that my oldest son was picking on him and teasing him and just saying his name repeatedly, over and over again, just really aggravating Samaj. And Samaj start rocking, hitting his head on the floor and making that humming noise, and I, I got so frustrated. I just picked him up by the collar of his shirt with both hands, and I raised him to, to my height, and I told him, “God gave you words use them.” And the first thing that he’s ever spoken in his life, he said, “You hurt my heart.” And the whole house was in tears, the first sentence, word he ever spoke was, “You hurt my heart”.

– The most outstanding, and to some degree unexpected difference that we found is that African-Americans have much higher antibody responses to this viral vaccine, rubella, than we have seen in any other population.

– There was a study that was done by Dr. Gregory Poland with the Mayo clinic. And he actually thankfully was able to discuss around his work. He was looking into the rubella vaccine and what he found was the antibody response, was so robust in African-American children. What he believed that shows is that we need probably about half the dose that kids are given, African-American kids are given to have an effective rubella vaccine.

– So if you have that process that could be caused by vaccines, why wouldn’t there be a link between vaccines and developmental delays? Why wouldn’t there be link between vaccines and and immune system problems like asthma, eczema, allergies, recurrent ear infections that’s all immune system over aggressiveness. Should we take a group of people that already have a kick ass kind of immune system over here and you’re going to overstimulate them? What do you think is gonna happen? And unfortunately, African-American community is much more likely to have that kind of response. There is suspicion regarding the MMR vaccine, both in the black community and in the majority community the vaccines are safe and effective. I give them, I wouldn’t be giving them to my patients if I didn’t believe in them they need to understand that there’s a lot of misinformation and disinformation being provided to the community that is not serving the community.

– The CDC data showed black boys who got the MMR on time were 336% as likely to be diagnosed with autism as black boys who waited. This effect was not seen in white children. No one vaccine fits everybody. We are not all genetically the same.

– I will take the COVID-19 vaccination. Yeah, because it was safe for everyone, then I should do it.

– I will not take it COVID vaccination unless they don’t enforce it. The government, every 50 States.

– If it’s safe and you know, the doctors recommend it, if it’s safe by the health department, I would definitely take it. But if it’s like 50, 50 thing that we don’t know what’s gonna be like the outcome, then I wouldn’t.

– My name is Resho Ahmed, my child Salma she’s 14, Calsho she’s like 13, and Hamza is 12, Adrahman is 11. Aneesha she’s six, three, Anab Muhat.

– There was a measle outbreak around two years ago, I believe, and a lot of Somali kids were in daycares. And the measle outbreak happened inside the daycares. So they forced people to get shots, otherwise they won’t go to daycare, they won’t go to schools.

– A measles outbreak is spreading in the twin cities. The health department announced five new cases. That means at least eight children ages four and under have gotten sick in Hennepin County. Six of them had to stay in the hospital. None of the kids were vaccinated against measles. Most are Somali, Minnesotans. The health department says that community has been targeted with misinformation about vaccine risks. So it’s working to alert families to the outbreak.

– I believe in my heart autistic comes from MMR or or any shots, not MMR. And my, even my son, when he was one, he was high functioning, normal child. When he got his 15 months shot, that’s when he stopped talking. He started shaking his hands and just not moving. Not even you know eye contact, nothing. There’s a big number of autistic in Somali community, like almost every family, every other family have one child or two child, and there’s nothing like that back home.

– [Female Reporter 3] For the Minneapolis Somali community, autism is a foreign concept.

– We don’t even have a word for autism in our language. So this is something very hard for this community to understand.

– Oh my God, a lot of challenges. He’s a runner. He will leave the house. So constantly my heart is like whenever I’m out of the house, if I even go food shopping I’m thinking about is your home safe? So I have to call the house like every five minutes, Adrahman inside the house, we have locks front of our doors. So he does not leave the house.

– Ikram Mohamed is a Somali American mother of five children, four have received the MMR vaccine, but she waited until they were older. Mohamed doesn’t plan to vaccinate her five-year-old until he starts school in the fall.

– There is this big decision to make, you know are you gonna choose to take the risk to vaccinate and get this long-term chronic illness? Or are you gonna take the risk of trying to do everything that you can, in your power to prevent your child from getting the measles? That’s a very hard choice.

– I feel guilty. I feel like I should do more research on the shots before I give it to him. I feel like when I heard someone say my child have autism, I should ask what happened, how this happened. I heard from my cousins or my aunt, they would say but I never, I just thought something just happened to him, but I never went to do an ask many questions.

– We’ve had issues with, if you will, minority communities being told what to do, when some sort of a public health issue comes up. If we take measles, for instance, measles for many Americans is sort of old hat. We’ve talked about it. We’ve been vaccinating against it for years and years. But if you bring a community into this country, and they haven’t had the chance to get that same level of understanding, and then all of a sudden we have an issue, a public health issue, I think oftentimes what happens there is that it’s feels like their tradition, their culture, their way of assimilating information is being attacked. So I think the Somali community felt, “Hold it, don’t tell us what to do, teach us why you want us to try to gain a different perspective.”

– And that’s one of the unique things about a more integrated approach to treatment and to medicine is that you can take some of those factors into account. And it’s not just to say, okay, this medication is for this particular situation we take into account the body. So for example, vitamin D a lot of people are aware very aware of that Vitamin D often is deficient in people of color, for one of the reasons, just the melanin blocking the absorption.

– If you are deficient in vitamin D, that does have an impact on your susceptibility to infection. So I would not mind recommending and I do it myself, taking vitamin D supplements.

– My question is, why is this not being discussed or why isn’t the CDC or the World Health Organization jumping on this as a potential solution to do more research around it. And I think those are some of the questions we should be asking when there’s some readily available vitamins that we can use to support the body. How is it that that’s not being talked about more?

– French pectus, quite recently, just a few months ago when the Covid conversations had begun, they are discussing it on television, and one of the doctors just states outright that he thinks that the vaccine should actually be tested in Africa since it’s easier and people are poorer it’s it would just be easier for them, and it would be cheaper. It is a comment that shows that racism in the drug industry is a real thing that affects how people perceive others and how people feel superior to others so that they can experiment on other human beings in order to get better drugs for themselves.

– While polio doesn’t exist in Africa anymore, but we’re still having polio epidemics, and these epidemics are happening in over 16 African countries including the Congo, Somalia and Kenya and the World Health Organization has admitted is all common from Gates’ polio vaccines.

– [Interpreter] My name is Elijah Matthew, on April 22nd, 2015, I left for work in the morning, after dropping my daughter to school. At around 11:00 AM, I received a call from her teacher informing me that the daughter was sick, I asked my wife to go and pick her up, and took her to Kicheseli Dispensary, where she was diagnosed to be suffering from malaria. She was injected with malaria quill, five minutes after the injection, the girl’s leg went numb and complained of pain. The attending nurse had no answer and just advised the mother to rub on the spot and take the girl home for overnight observation. When I got home in the evening, from my work, I found the child laying on the couch suffering from constant pain. On the third day, we went to Kuchole Hospital, but instead of having her go through physiotherapy, the doctor decided to take the blood sample, to be taken to the Kenya Medical Institute for polio test. We then decided to notify the public health office, at Magoro. At some point, we decided to keep legal help and we talked to a lawyer, the doctors gave the lawyer the go ahead to file a case, a judge pass a judgment, the court had ordered the County Government to pay a sum of 42 million Kenya shillings.

– If you look at pharmaceuticals and their role now, it’s exactly the role in the time of slavery. During the slave trade, the transatlantic slave trade, they would make so much money from the slave trade, they decided, “We are going to give a bit of money to the churches, to the missionaries so that they can penetrate Africa and make it easier for us to to continue exploiting Africa.” Because remember, at this time when the missionaries are coming to Africa, slave trade is on the decline.

– We’ve had so many situations throughout history like Namibia, much earlier on in history, where during the slave trade times, there were German doctors who were doing experiments on women to cause sterilization in order to prevent mixed race marriages. And then we also have places like Zimbabwe, where they were testing for zidovudine and they already knew the drug worked, they just wanted to find out if it works over a short period of time. We have examples like the tests that were done in Nigeria on meningitis patients, and those are examples to show exactly what is happening in Africa, in terms of vaccine testing.

– [Narrator] In 2014, the World Health Organization gave 1 million Kenyan women of childbearing years, a tetanus vaccine that contained a secret ingredient used to make women infertile. Now, instead of investigating this crime, health officials punished the people who reported it.

– In 1995, WHO and UNICEF came to this country, and wanted to give that vaccine, the tetanus toxoid, in a mass campaign. The Kenyan Catholics, advised the bishops that they must make sure that World Health Organization that has been pushing neo-colonial, imperialistic and a racist agenda in Africa, and especially in this country that was not going to use our people as Guinea pigs, that was in 1995.

– So the tetanus vaccine that you talk about, we have been giving tetanus vaccine in this country since independence, thousands, millions, millions of people have received this tetanus vaccine.

– We actually did two sets of tests, laboratory at Kenyatta National Hospital in December of 2015, we got the first lot from the office of one of the Catholic doctors, and then the others went and picked from one of the offices at their storage area. What happened is that we actually found that some of the vaccines were actually contaminated with beta HCG. Beta HCG is actually an anti-fertility hormone. It actually causes the woman to, to abort the fetus. Definitely a lot of backlash, we saw a lot of interference orders, contracts that we had were actually canceled, until today, it has never been paid. We’ve written letters, to the ministry of health, we do not get any responses back. I think what you could actually say is that definitely somebody has something to hide.

– Are these vaccines safe?

– Well, the, the FDA not being pressured will look hard at that. The FDA is the gold standard of regulators and their current guidance on this. If they stick with that is, is very, very appropriate. And there, yes I think-

– You know the data better than I do. But Bill, data shows that everybody with a high dose had a side effect.

– Yeah, but some of that is, is not dramatic where, you know it’s just, you know, super painful, but yes, there, we need to make sure there’s not severe side effects, the FDA-

– I can’t really look into Bill Gates’ head and tell you why he does what he does, but I can tell you that there’s a pattern, WHO has a $5.7 billion budget and Gates, by investing roughly a billion dollars in a year, essentially gains control over that entire budget. And so for him, it’s a very good investment particularly since he’s driving customers and, and revenue. The companies that he personally has invested in, and his foundation is invested in, because of his control over WHO, he can compel compliance with his vaccine policies among huge mass of African population, because the WHO subsidizes and in some cases almost entirely finances the health ministries of those countries, and the HIV programs in those countries.

– We know mercury causes severe brain damage, and permanent IQ loss. In the 1990s, the United States and Europe stopped using mercury in childhood vaccines. Yet we’re a health organization is still giving many mercury vaccines to a lot of African children. Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis vaccines were banned in Europe and the United States in the 1980s because it was killing or causing brain damage in one, in 300 children. So why is the World Health Organization, they continued to give this to 161 million African children every year. Now the Danish government, they did a study in 2017, they found that girls who got the DTP vaccine, they are 10 times more likely to die than unvaccinated girls, but yet they’re still giving it. The lead scientist on this, his name is Dr. Peter Aaby, he’s probably the most notable researcher in the world on African vaccines. He has been begging the World Health Organization to stop, but yet they continue.

– And I think it’s important to recognize that no routine vaccine was tested for or to effect on mortality in randomized trials before being introduced. I guess most of you think that we know what our vaccines are doing, we don’t. That vaccine is actually killing children. It’s not just sort of a differential effect, it’s killing children, is not because it saves boys, the vaccine is killing children and that’s the vaccine that we are using for monitoring the performance.

– [Minister] It was reported that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has given millions of dollars to 10 historically black colleges and universities. They’re doing this for their Corona testing facilities. Is it going to just stop with COVID testing, or is it going to transition into vaccination for HBCU black college students?

– I can tell everybody without the fear of contradiction, that the vaccination that is taking place in Africa has nothing to do with any disease. We do not need it.

– Vaccines are tested all over the world. So no responsible, respectable philanthropists or pharmaceutical company would want to test their vaccines only in Africa, because it would only show that that vaccine is working or not working in Africa.

– Africa has been protected by our interactions with the environment, and we are actually quite immune to some of these things. And I say this as a doctor, COVID does not belong to Africa. And therefore must not, there is no vaccine which should be tested in Africa.

– Let’s try the leaves right here. Oh, you’re so good at this. Give me another one. Let’s put a line down through here. This is what vaccine injury looks like. My child still says at 21 years of age, five days a week of occupational therapy, speech, physical therapy that this is still very difficult for him. When you’re talking about autism, give it it’s true name, brain damage, neurological damage, and autism is the great equalizer. Temple and Lucinda were due for a well-baby visit, we were living in Maryland on a military base. My husband is a 26 year coast guard, retired officer. And when we took the babies in, I really didn’t wanna take them in because at five months I noticed something different in him. He had a fever that he just could not get rid of. So I kept taking him back and forth to the emergency room and they kept saying, “No, he should be fine just keep giving them Tylenol.” He’s just having a reaction because the vaccine is doing what it’s supposed to do. It wasn’t until he was 12 months old, and the nurse kept calling and calling and saying he was due for his well-baby visit. I got there, and the nurse had lined up all the vaccines, three sets of vaccines, hip, MMR and the detail, Temple was the first I put on the table, at that time Lucinda who’s in the front of the triple stroller, she flipped herself over. So I was afraid she was gonna hurt herself. She could bang her head on the side. And as I picked her up and comforted her and put her back down, when I looked around, the other MMR was gone. The reason why Temple got an extra MMR vaccine, is because the nurse lined up the vaccines for each child before she gave them. And she mistakenly took the extra MMR and gave to Temple. When I saw that, I asked her what had happened to that other vaccine. She said, “What other vaccine?” I said, “The one that you have for his twin, you only have two there, not three.” And she had given it to him, it went in the trash, the, the needle, and what have you. And I told her to call the doctor immediately come in. So when they came in, the doctor and another nurse practitioner came in, she said, “Oh my goodness, I’ll just call Mark and see what to do but we can get another vaccine ready for your daughter, I said, “She’s not taking any vaccines, we’re done.” And I left the clinic and I lost him that night. Temple lost eye contact, his body became floppy, he started headbanging, he started crawling backwards, and he had just started to walk.

– To be the sibling that wasn’t harmed by the vaccination and to have your twin brother be the one that essentially sacrificed his life for me it’s kind of hard. You kind of have survivor’s guilt throughout your life. When I got dropped off to college, it was the whole family. So it was me, my brother, my oldest sister, my dad and my mom. And I remember we were packing up all this stuff and he was grabbing all the furniture, all the heavy lifting, even though he can’t really lift that much. And after we got everything situated, he was just kind of standing by the car, and I was standing by the car, and he just leaned over and hugged me. And he was like, “I’ll miss you Cindy.” I said, “I’m coming back, I’ll miss you too.” And he was almost close to tears. My mom called me and said he was crying down the road, and I was kind of crying because for the longest it was just us two, I mean from the womb all the way to here. It wasn’t until I got back to the dorm room, and I was by myself that I started crying.

– When you say a person is forced to do something, you’re not forced to do anything in America. You make a choice. The lines are drawn in the sand. You have to choose what side of that line you’re going to be on. Is playing Russian roulette with the rest of your child’s health, worth that injection in the dark?

– If you look at the incidence of these diseases, for which they’ve developed vaccine for, going back to the early 1930s, the incidence of this disease was steadily going down in some cases, as much as 90% before that respective vaccines came on the market. Now the fact that the vaccine says introduced here, the fact that it continued to go down, the medical establishment wants to give the credit to the vaccine, but you, anybody can go and do the research you see was steadily declining all these diseases, it’s a mythology. And why were they declining for two simple reasons, improvements in sanitation and improvements in nutrition.

– New Jersey! You know we got a bunch of stuff going inside that building, but I wanted to come out today because I know all the hard work, and I know all the efforts you all have been doing, throughout the last few months. You know, you give me the wherewithal to continue the fight inside that room, inside those hallways, even when you question it, right? Even when you question everything that’s going on with the CDC, everything that’s going on with the trial, everything that’s gone wrong. The minute you question that we’re anti-vaccs was a whole lot of anti-vaccs in the country. What I’m saying to you is when there is a risk, there must be a choice.

– Our body, our choice!

– [Crowd] Our body, our choice!

– Our body, our choice!

– I’m saying that if this is a safe vaccine, I’m for it. But if there is a concern that you have with the vaccine there should be a middle ground for you to exercise your right for choice. And I am pro choice. But if there is an individual who may have had an unfortunate situation or may have faced something in the past, I think that they should be able to exercise their right to choose. And those individuals who want to exercise their right as a religious exemption, they have the right to choose to use that. If someone has the ability to utilize their medical exemption, they should have that right to choose. This is a conversation that doesn’t, and shouldn’t involve government overreaching into what you choose to do to your body. And I think that if we are going to, get into the area of that, I think government has no place in that. I think government has no place in mandating anything that you have to ultimately make an informed decision to take care of yourself. But I wanted to set a message today ’cause it’s very important, right now, the black community in America is under assault. The same thing that happened in the 1930s during eugenics movement, when Margaret Sanger to abort our babies is happening in this country right now. And it’s present, it’s present in black communities, it’s present in Latino communities, it’s present in white communities, but in black communities something is very sinister happening in this country.

– As far as vaccines are concerned, I don’t know if people are aware of this because of these mandatory bills, they are going to impact your life. A single mom’s life that might be on public assistance. If you don’t take the vaccine, well, guess what? You won’t get your, your assistance. You won’t, if you don’t take the vaccine, you won’t be able to go to school. If you don’t take the vaccine, you won’t be able to work. If you don’t take the vaccine, you won’t be able to travel. So there goes the commoditization, there goes to control there that’s, this is how big pharma and big tech are going to do what they’re doing to us right now.

– I’ve heard the question, “Dr. Ross, I’m on section eight. I’m on WIC. The school system is basically going to kick my kid out of school, if they don’t get these vaccines. They want me to give six or seven of them today. Dr. Ross, what do you suggest?” And I always say the same thing, I was like, “I can’t tell you what to do, but I know what I would do if it was my kid.” And I leave it at that, as a physician I can not tell patients not to get vaccines, it’s against the law.

– In our African-American communities, there are many people who question the the safety of vaccines and still continue to get them because they feel that there is no other choice. What is the solution to that? It’s grassroots education in my opinion, it’s through it’s through things like this, it’s through speaking up about what we see and getting that narrative spoken because unfortunately, when we post something about this on social media, it gets removed, it gets fact-checked, it gets debunked. And the parents, I will tell you personally, I was at the Capitol in, in state Capitol in California in 2019, and we had a line that wrapped around the State Capitol two times, four hours worth of opposition from family members who were opposing this new mandate that they recently passed in the state of California, because either they themselves or a family member or some were nurses and physicians who had seen injury and noticed that it is not being spoken about, coming out to speak. So for four hours of opposition, and yet it was as though their voice was never heard.

– If there are people who are coming to testify who can only speak in Spanish, we will translate for them. I’m sorry you see there’s a long line, and there are a lot of things going on, so we’re gonna keep your testimony to two minutes. You can do it in either English or Spanish.

– I am a mother of two children, medically fragile.

– [Lorena] Nope that’s it.

– This will affect my children.

– [Lorena] All right, we’re gonna state your position.

– This pill won’t fix that.

– [Lorena] Okay, thank you.

– [Dr. Charles] You know that sort of thing shows that we have to educate and empower people to have more of a voice.

– You’ve been deceived to think that vaccines are the Holy grail to health. Ask any of us who had all of our childhood infections and viruses, and we will tell you, a week of measles, where we were fine by the end of the week with chicken soup and vitamin A, isn’t worth a lifetime of disability.

– I would say the same thing that I tell everybody, take responsibility for your own health care. Don’t listen to me. Don’t listen to Tony Fauci. Hey, and don’t listen to your doctor, ask the questions, make sure he’s read the vaccine answered. And he’s familiar with ingredients, and he explains to you why each of those ingredients belong in that vaccine and what the impact of your child of having aluminum, of having fetal tissue from animals and from human beings and the vaccine. What, what is the impact on your child? Has the doctor even thought about that? Ask him to read the list of side effects, and ask him what the risk is, of those of your child getting one of those side effects. And has he seen those side effects in his other patients, take responsibility for your own healthcare, that’s what all of us have to do. It’s the only way to protect your child. And if you’re a mom, you pay attention to in out to what your child eats, make sure that they’re not getting chemicals, chemicals in their food. You look at the kind of stroller that they have to make sure it’s safe, and protect them from chemical contamination. What you need to do that when you go to your doctor’s office, still the responsibility does not end when you walk through your doctor’s office door. ♪ We’ve got to do something yeah ♪ ♪ To save the children ♪ ♪ Soon it will be their chance to ♪ ♪ Try and save the world ♪ ♪ Right now they seem to play ♪ ♪ Such a small part of ♪ ♪ The things that they’ll soon ♪ ♪ Be right at the heart of ♪ ♪ My little Tommy ♪ ♪ He said he wants to be a fireman ♪ ♪ And little Mary ♪ ♪ She said ♪ ♪ She got to teach school ♪ ♪ If we know all we say we know ♪ ♪ About the problems, oh oh oh ♪ ♪ Why can’t we do something ♪ ♪ To try and solve them ♪ ♪ We’ve got to do something, yeah, ♪ ♪ To save the children ♪ ♪ Soon it will be their turns to ♪ ♪ Try and save the world ♪ ♪ To save the children ♪
