GOP Governor Exposes His Children to Chickenpox – Internet Explodes
Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin had a neighbor whose children contracted chickenpox. Like every parent in America used to do just a couple of decades ago, Bevin took his own nine children over to play with, wrestle, hug and share some drinking straws with the infected kids.
The internet exploded upon this information being made public. Is Governor Bevin guilty of child abuse? Is he a stupid, knuckle-dragging hillbilly who deserves to have his kids taken away by Child Protective Services?
Surprisingly, many people are saying “Yes” to those questions – and even many conservative outlets are lambasting the Governor.
Before everyone calls me an anti-vaxxer conspiracy theorist who’s been smoking weed all day with Alex Jones, could we all take a breath for just a second and have an adult conversation about vaccines?
For the record, I’m not totally anti-vaccine. If you’re an adult traveling to a Third World hellhole (like San Francisco), I think you should definitely get your shots ahead of time, for your own good. However, I am staunchly anti-government-forced vaccines on children – always have been, always will be.
Somehow, all 9 of Governor Bevin’s children survived their exposure to chickenpox. This is despite pro-vaxxer conservative websites like the Victory Girls Blog which accused him of exposing his kids to a “deadly childhood disease.”
Come on. Chickenpox? Do Americans even know what vaccines are?
They inject the chickenpox virus into a child! If Bevin is guilty of “child abuse” as the Victory Girls claim, then every parent who has their children vaccinated is guilty of the same thing.
The mortality rate from chickenpox is 0.003% among all people. Hardly anyone dies from chickenpox, especially in the United States. Everyone in the country used to do exactly what Bevin just did.
He made sure his kids were exposed to the virus when they were young, because older adults who catch it tend to have a rougher experience with chickenpox.
And contrary to popular propaganda, some people do enjoy lifetime immunity from chickenpox and shingles when they catch it as children.
It’s too bad that Bevin didn’t use his microphone to talk more about why he chose not to vaccinate his children. After all, Kentucky is a state with mandatory, government-forced vaccines required for all children before they start kindergarten.
What most people don’t realize, because the media and the pro-vaccine crowd desperately want you to not know it, is this: Vaccines are made from aborted babies.
Chickenpox, rubella (the ‘R’ in the mandatory MMR vaccine), hepatitis A and even the rabies vaccine are all created using culture cells from aborted babies.
A total of 24 vaccine strains are made this way. No ever talks about that fact, despite it being the number one reason why religious conservatives opt out of vaccines.
All of the shiny, happy propaganda in the world can’t make it sound quite as sexy when people realize that they’re injecting their children with dead baby parts.
The vaccine industry goes out of its way to suppress this information. We live in a culture where we have warning labels on hair dryers that tell us, “Do Not Use While Sleeping,” but American consumers are denied informed consent when it comes to the vaccines we are required by law to inject into our children.
But, but, but – vaccines save lives! Yes, they do. No one is disputing that.
The fact that babies lost their lives in the womb to create those very same vaccines makes them a non-starter for many pro-life individuals, such as Gov. Matt Bevin.
At the same time, many people are harmed by vaccines. The taxpayer-funded National Vaccine Injury Compensation (NVIC) Fund has paid out more than $150 million every year since 2010 to families that have had children and teens catastrophically injured, crippled or killed by vaccines. In 2019, the fund has already paid out more than $100 million to vaccine victims – and it’s only April.
But, but, but – it’s the law! Sure it is.
And the fact that individuals from the pro-life governor of Kentucky to the liberal pro-vaxxing founder of Microsoft (Bill Gates) choose to not follow the law proves that it is an unjust, illegitimate law.
If a law is passed tomorrow that we should all report our neighbors to the government if they look Jewish, would you follow it?
Gov. Bevins should be applauded for exposing his kids to chickenpox. It’s too bad that more politicians don’t believe that individual conscience applies to health care decisions for families.
