Articulate, intelligent and passionate.

Meryl Dorey of the anti-vaccination network summons her minions to ‘write’ to federal and state ministers. They did. Dorey published their letters. Dorey says “these letters are articulate, intelligent and passionate.” This claim is investigated. Unleash… THE OTTER.


Ah, the AVSN. There are a lot of things the AVSN don’t do very well. So it’s probably easier to list the things they can do well:

1. They are very good at summoning the flying monkeys to submit spit speckled letters of indignation at unsuspecting recipients.

2. Uh… look the things they’re good at is a work in progress.

But let’s get back to point one, or as the AVSN calls it, “articulate, intelligent and passionate” letter writing.

You can read them in their entirety here.

(This will be a work in progress. I will be adding letters and trying to fix the formatting over the next little while)

Exhibit A:


Sadly this is one of the more articulate letters. The fact that in 2014 these people are still writing about “ethyl mercury” or “thiomersal/thimerosal”, over a decade since it was removed from childhood vaccines reaaaaaally rustles my jimmies.

    There are indeed some fascinating letters published on the AVSN’s site.
    One mention of ‘nazi, one of ‘conspiracy’, two of ‘big pharma’ and two of ‘thimerosal’ so far.

      Yes, and I expect that vaccines are so little of Big Pharma’s revenue that they probably don’t care. What they want to sell is pills that are taken every day or drugs that are hugely expensive. A lot of their marketing involves trying to convince doctors to choose between drugs that work well and are equally effective.
