There has not been a movie in recent history that has received as much backlash as ‘VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Conspiracy.’ Directed by Andrew Wakefield, who was one of the first people to raise a red flag on the potential link between vaccines and autism, the movie focuses on the interviews of pharmaceutical company insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents whose children were injured by the vaccinations.
The movie was supposed to come out at the Tribeca Film Festival, and actor Robert De Niro, who is one of the festival’s founders, fully supported it.
“Grace and I have a child with autism and we believe it is critical that all of the issues surrounding the causes of autism be openly discussed and examined,” De Niro stated.
Someone, likely a corporate interest group, called De Niro, and though we do not know what was said, the conversation pushed De Niro to remove the movie from the line up. But they did not manage to change De Niro’s mind.
Today, April 13th, on the day of the 15th year celebration of the Tribeca Festival, De Niro and another festival’s founder Jane Rosenthal were on TODAY’s morning show, and De Niro has defended the autism – vaccine link:
“I think [VAXXED] is something that people should see…There is definitely something to that movies, and there is another movie called Trace Amounts. There is a lot of information about things that are happening with the CDC, the pharmaceutical companies; there are a lot of things that are not said. I, as a parent of a child who has autism, am concerned. And I want to know the truth.”
And the truth is starting to slowly come out. The critics of the movie raised a storm calling the movie dangerous and claimed that it is not based on facts. When in fact, it is dangerous not to talk about what we already know.
“If you are a scientist, let’s see it, let’s hear it. Everybody doesn’t seem to want to hear much about it. It’s shutdown,” said De Niro. “And you guys [speaking to news casters] are the ones that should be investigating.”
And there is a lot to investigate.
After all, the Senior CDC Scientist Dr. William Thompson admitted that the study that was meant to prove the MMR vaccine as safe saw a correlation between the vaccine and autism, and this part of the study was purposefully destroyed, thrown into the garbage can — literally.
“The co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study,” he said.
Dr. Thompson himself kept the copies, but did not come forward with this information till recently. When he did, U.S. Representative from Florida Bill Posey spoke to the House of Representatives and asked for an official investigation.
We are just in the beginning of this fight for the truth, and those who are making bank manufacturing vaccines do not want the truth to come out. But thankfully, those who know the truth or have started to question what they have been originally told are starting to speak up: De Niro, Jim Carrey, former pharmaceutical representatives, politicians, parents — who will be next?
The conversation about VAXXED starts at 2:13:
[VAXXED is now playing in New York City, and will be screened in California, and Arizona, with other locations coming soon].
