Re: “Commentary: Mein campus

Mr. Lang would do the OKC Gazette a favor if he started using facts when he writes his opinions. There is no video proof of anyone chanting "Build the wall" despite hours of footage available of the incident. There is video of the Black Hebrew Israelites shouting slurs and insults to the Covington students. Certain factions of the Black Hebrew Israelites are even recognized as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, but we hear nothing from Mr. Lang about what they were saying in almost 2 hours of video.

Nathan Phillips has described himself in a Facebook video as having paperwork indicating he served "in theater" in the Vietnam War and several news outlets have called him a Vietnam veteran, but recent evidence shows he never served outside the United States leading the Washington Post to issue a correction stating that Phillips fought in Vietnam. Still, Mr. Lang refers to Mr. Phillips as Vietnam veteran.

But none of this truth prevents Mr. Lang from repeating lies about what actually happened at the Lincoln Memorial. Mr. Lang appears to be more interested in spreading his own bigotry against Conservatives than in actually addressing the truth in an issue.

And I'm wondering how Nick Sandmann should have responded to Nathan Phillips? What action would have appeased Mr. Lang's bigotry? If Nick Sandmann walked away, he could be accused of disrespecting Nathan Phillips. If he didn't smile, he could be accused of expressing hatred. If he stepped past Nathan Phillips, he could be accused of being aggressive (because just standing still as someone walks up to you pounding a drum is called aggressive now).

Nathan Phillips inserted himself into the crowd of Covington students, he walked up to Nick Sandmann and beat a drum right in the student's face and at no time was Phillip's 'retreat' barred by anyone other than the people with Phillip's who were filming the event in order (I suppose) to post the encounter on social media and gin up more hatred against a group of people different than themselves.

If Mr. Lang wants to fight bigotry and hatred, he might want to look at the actual actions of the other two groups involved in the Lincoln Memorial encounter and then address that.

Re: “Commentary: Taking shots

Ms. Abernathy says her two children have been diagnosed with vaccine injury by (wait for it...) an attorney!

Gee, I didn't know attorneys are licensed to practice medicine. Where should she go for a second opinion, to her tarot card reader? Her acupuncturist? Her mechanic? Maybe her plumber would be a good source.

The attorney in question appears to have a financial stake in proving his/her diagnosis correct. Gee, that's not nearly as bad as doctors being paid to practice medicine, is it?

Sorry I can't say more, but I have to go see one of the checkers at Kroger's for advice on my retirement account.

Re: “Commentary: Taking shots

Andrew Wakefield was a fraud and produced unscientific and unethically gathered results. He was also getting paid by lawyers who wanted to sue vaccine producing companies. For some reason, many of the people commenting here can't accept that the genesis of their conspiracy theory was a complete fraud.

If anyone truly wants to know the facts about Wakefield's lies and how they have been scientifically disproved multiple times, please read this:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3136032/

"The Lancet completely retracted the Wakefield et al.[1] paper in February 2010, admitting that several elements in the paper were incorrect, contrary to the findings of the earlier investigation.[7] Wakefield et al.[1] were held guilty of ethical violations (they had conducted invasive investigations on the children without obtaining the necessary ethical clearances) and scientific misrepresentation (they reported that their sampling was consecutive when, in fact, it was selective). This retraction was published as a small, anonymous paragraph in the journal, on behalf of the editors.[8]

The final episode in the saga is the revelation that Wakefield et al.[1] were guilty of deliberate fraud (they picked and chose data that suited their case; they falsified facts).[9] The British Medical Journal has published a series of articles on the exposure of the fraud, which appears to have taken place for financial gain.[1013] "

Dr. Wakefield's study was about gastrointestinal issues, not autism. Do the research yourself. Here's more...

Re: “Commentary: Taking shots

We have two vaccine inured family members and will not be subjecting ourselves to the trash in them any longer, until they are made safe as Japan has tried to do. You can do what you want in Oklahoma, by the way. If you have a problem with peanuts, pork, eggs? Oh my, they are also in vaccines, so is antibiotics and embalming fluid. We do support anyone who wants to vaccinate and pray that we don't loose our rights to decide for ourselves! Hope you consider the science, not just what you were told to say in your editorials! Be real and honest, please! Some people expect an honest paper that doesn't sell out to the money. I will read this paper more when I see that. Thanks.

Re: “Commentary: Taking shots

There is no doubt that vaccines have accomplished great results. Anyone who has watched someone die from tetanus or rabies can attest to that. But they should remain the choice of adults/parents. Nobody should be under any compulsion to get them if they don't want them. Those who are vaccinated have nothing to fear from those who aren't, right? As for science, ask any epidemiologist or population geneticist whether continually vaccinating a population over the long term results in a vigorous population or a vulnerable one. Then consider that any population highly insulated from disease could be at the same catastrophic risk as Native Americans at the time of Columbus. Be interesting to see how much money and support the vaccine lobby has given to certain politicians and government entities, particularly at the county ands state levels.

Re: “Commentary: Taking shots

As an Oklahoman, I appreciate the Oklahoman giving voice to both sides of the issues surrounding vaccines. When it comes to injecting anything into your body there should always be choice. You should not be required to be injected with anything. Services provided by the government, such as public school, should not require injections of anything into your body or your childs body to be enrolled or to receive services. Oklahoma has exemptions for vaccinations/immunizations. I am proud of Oklahoma for that, and that is the way it should stay. Those in favor of vaccines can then be vaccinated and those that for whatever reason do not believe in vaccines can enjoy the Freedoms so many fought for and not be vacinnated.

Re: “Commentary: Taking shots

We believe in choice for multiple reasons. Once vaccines are safer, then we will vaccinate again. We are pro-life , so we don't agree with aborted baby DNA injected into us. The media does try and avoid that part. Also, we are Christians who follow the Bible,and we do not ingest or inject any biblically unclean ingredients. And then there's the ingredients. Mercury and aluminum serve 2 purposes--- a longer shelf life and to make it to the brain. Unfortunately, my two older children are vaccine injured. This was confirmed by our vaccination attorney, if anyone is nosey. Unfortunately , the statute of limitations had passed. It's 3 years from the shot to receive any compensation. Also, thanks to the flu shot, I now have Lupus. I'm not going to kill my kids and myself just to go along with incorrect information. Also, how much does your doctor make off of vaccines? Check out dollars for docs , propublica. Good luck finding anything on Google about vaccines, Google censors big-time. Also, the media is 100 percent owned by the pharmaceutical companies. And why are there so many doctors winding up dead of "apparent suicide" for speaking the truth about vaccines and the pharmaceutical companies?
