Texas Rep Rips Big Pharma Shill: ‘Parental Rights Mean More to Us’ Than Vaccine ‘Sorcery’

With the relentless push for Big Pharma to force vaccines into children using government authority, Texas state Rep. Jonathan Stickland (R-Bedford) is making a stand.

Stickland took aim at Dr. Peter Hotez, a leading advocate for mandatory vaccinations who is pushing for social media entities to restrict non-corporate speech that is skeptical of Big Pharma’s shots.

“We need a more robust system of pro-vaccine advocacy in this country,” Hotez said.

Hotez is lobbying for Texas to move in the direction of other more left-leaning states that are eliminating personal belief waivers for vaccines, setting the stage for mandatory vaccinations.

“That’s what I’d like to see done in Washington and Oregon, and done here [in Texas],” Hotez said. “Any move toward that is welcome.”

Hotez is particularly hostile toward individuals of deep religious faith who wish to abstain from Big Pharma’s toxic inoculations.

“If you look at the major religions, I can’t think of any mainstream prohibitions against vaccines, maybe some sects or spinoffs,” he said. “These are important times where religious leaders need to speak out on behalf of vaccines. We need an interfaith statement on vaccines.”

It was these comments and others that prompted the liberty-minded legislator Stickland to put the Mengelean physician in his place.

Hotez responded by saying in a follow-up Tweet: “I don’t take a dime from the vaccine industry. I develop neglected disease vaccines for the world’s poorest people. And as a Texas pediatrician-scientist it is most certainly my business.”

Unimpressed by Hotez’s lip service, Stickland doubled-down with an even harsher condemnation of the doctor, accusing him of pushing “sorcery.”

Stickland was correct to hammer Hotez for his deceptive and misleading rhetoric because the prominent mouthpiece is, in fact, closely connected to Big Pharma.

Hotez formerly served as the President of the Sabin Vaccine Institute and used to serve on the Board of Directors of the Immunization Partnership (TIP). These two organizations are propped up by significant donations from the pharmaceutical industry.

According to their annual report from 2015-2016, TIP’s donors included Big Pharma giants such as Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, and Pzifer. Merck and GlaxoSmithKline were also found on the donor list for Sabin as well.

Stickland is also promoting liberty in the Lone Star State by pushing for a measure to ban red light cameras, which passed the Texas state House this morning:

Stickland may have suffered a hiccup when he sided with House GOP leadership over grassroots 2nd Amendment advocates last month, but he has rebounded quickly.

This child-targeting sorcerer, Hotez may think twice before disseminating Big Pharma propaganda over social media in the future.
