We are the people who won't go away.

We ask the questions that haven't been answered, and that won't be swept under the rug.

And whenever it becomes apparent that we--and our pesky questions--are still hanging around, the people who would shout us down and/or label us with snide names ("anti-vaccine," "mercury militia," wackos," etc.) ramp it up a notch. They are no longer content to hint at their real message: that the collateral damage of hundreds of thousands of injured children is an acceptable sacrifice for the "greater good" of an out-of-control vaccine program.

Those who place an unquestioning belief in that program--a belief built more on taught lore than on actual scientific study--have realized that the questions and the questioners remain. So now the almost predictable and thinly veiled cries have arisen that our words should not even be heard.

I could not say it all any better tha does Louis Conte in a recent post over at Age of Autism:
That the concept of censorship is so comfortably proposed by seemingly main stream people is of profound concern to me. It seems that those who support the vaccine program have convinced themselves that the program is above discussion and public discourse. Vaccines are all good and unquestionably safe. Those who make them, administer them and supply them are all beyond reproach. Bringing up the radioactive ‘autism’ thing really throws them into a tizzy. Not only is discussion of vaccines and autism found to be against “scientific consensus” but it is now supposed to be described as a “fringe theory.” If you talk about this issue, you are a member of a lunatic fringe. You are out there in the woods, looking for Bigfoot.
The entire post, entitled "The Death of Public Discourse and the Heavy Snow of Plausibility" is a must read. Go here to do so.
