Have we finally come to the end of the “Age of Cowards?”
By Kent Heckenlively, JD
Are we in the age of heroes?
Like the rest of the normal world, male and female, I have been disgusted by the revelations of sexual harassment, rape, and even worse by members of the Hollywood elite and members of Congress. I honestly don’t know how deep the rabbit hole goes, or whether I’m chasing a white rabbit or a snipe, but I’m rapidly losing the ability to be surprised.
The movie producer who was thanked more often than God at the Oscars in recent years was forcing women to watch him in the shower while he played with himself? That’s really a thing? As a middle-aged man I thought I’d heard everything, but let me pause for a moment to vomit.
Congress keeps coming up with even more insane rules on how to run our lives, but yet they have a secret court and slush fund to silence the victims of sexual harassment by members of Congress? Again, let me pause for a moment to vomit.
I thought after fifteen years of the vaccine-autism wars I’d built up an immunity to be surprised by this level of corruption. Apparently, I am still at risk for shock.
But why should I be surprised by this level of sexual corruption when so many have remained quiet about their own experiences with vaccine injury?
Yes, I am venturing again into that dangerous territory which gets even some of our most highly valued activists angry at me.
As in the well-known public celebrities, doctors, scientists, politicians, or even insanely rich people who don’t want their friends to know they have a family member who suffered a vaccine injury.
I really don’t get the disconnect. If there was newscaster who did a story about drunk driving, and he mentioned his sister was killed by a drunk-driver, nobody would call him an anti-alcohol zealot. That would simply be GOOD JOURNALISM which requires that if you have a CONNECTION to the story you are covering, it is PROPER JOURNALISTIC PRACTICE to disclose the connection.
I would appreciate it in the future if I was not called up and yelled at by certain people for pointing out this very basic fact.
If there was a politician who was talking about drug addiction, and he revealed his very own brother had died from a drug overdose, we would celebrate the vulnerability which was shared with the public. I am aware that in regards to vaccine injury we are often talking about those who are currently under eighteen years of age and that many parents have privacy concerns.
As an attorney and an advocate I seek areas of consensus. Let me be clear about my stand on this issue. I am willing to compromise, but you must first understand my side.
If you know or suspect your child was vaccine-injured, and you remain silent for fear of people turning away from you or the loss of financial opportunities, such as reprising a successful movie role, I have NO RESPECT for you. Police officers, firemen, and soldiers put their lives on the line every day to protect the public. Every one of us shares that same obligation. It’s part of what we call a civilized society.
As a teacher I am a mandated reporter, meaning if I suspect any one of my students is being harmed by ANYBODY I am LEGALLY REQUIRED TO REPORT IT. I cannot imagine a parent who remains quiet about a medical system which harms not only their own child, but millions of others. That does not make me a zealot. It means I am a human being with a conscience.
I am willing to debate this opinion publicly any day of the week. Maybe we can even get Fox News to host that debate. However, I will not have this debate privately. Comment publicly on this article where everybody can see it or shut the hell up. If you contact me privately I am giving you FAIR WARNING that I will publish your comments.
Okay, now you know how I feel. Now I want to make my offer in compromise.
As the sexual harassment and rape charges have circulated around Hollywood and Washington, D.C., many have found the courage to speak up, using the hashtag, #MeToo. I was fortunate enough to have a mother who told me and anybody who would listen about the sexual harassment she endured as a trail-blazer for women’s education in the 1950s. Yes, she suffered for speaking up, but she taught me that one’s obligation before God was to speak the truth, not calculate the odds.
When I meet my Maker and argue for admission to Heaven it will be based on the courage I showed in confronting evil, not the cleverness with which I avoided trouble.
Here is my offer: From the end of November, 2017 until January 1, 2018 I want to see the internet on fire with the hashtag #VaxInjuryMeToo. For those who worry they might lose friends or financial opportunities, don’t worry. The pharma-bought media won’t report it anyway. To them it will be as if you were that lonely tree that fell in a forest where nobody could hear you.
But the independent voices in media will take notice. The mainstream media is a hollowed-out shell, a Dead Man Walking, and you have a FINAL chance to tell the truth.
