If you had ever alleged Dr. Paul Offit's work to be scientific fraud, then you violated federal law, should this recent court decision hold. Since dissent against fluoridation, vaccination, and HIV=AIDS began, official science has become official government science. but now, official government science protected by the law. it cannot be criticized without penalty. Under the threat that their official science might not be believed, liberal elites who feel they are the repository of all wisdom, are outlawing the heresy of scientific dissent. now the courts are involved to punish heresy. i'm curious: After being ridiculed by liberals as "flat earthers" on climate change and embryonic stem cells, how soon, if ever, will conservatives be ripe for accepting the dissenting views on vaccination? BTW, why did a federal court hear this libel suit?! This is yet more evidence of the growing leviathan that is the central government. see: http://blog.heritage.org/2014/01/20/happens-break-law-didnt-know/ ----Gary Krasner ARTICLE: July 26, 2013 Mann vs. Steyn: Heresy Shall Be Crushed By Daren Jonescu http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/07/mann_vs_steyn_heresy_shall_be_crushed.html excerpt: Mann has taken his critics to court -- all of them, in effect, with Steyn and NRO as stand-ins -- for saying his research is fraudulent and bogus. The court has upheld the legitimacy of his suit by citing the support of his research by precisely the organizations with the greatest vested interest in his vindication -- including government agencies deeply involved in climate change advocacy (EPA and NOAA), and a public university. The message: the State is on board with Mr. Mann, and has had enough of his work being challenged.
