A strange story:

Who is behind the pamphlet. No one knows. The title should be: trying to track down.

About that rally:

MONSEY, N.Y. — An ultra-Orthodox rabbi falsely described the measles outbreak among Jews as part of an elaborate plan concocted by Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York to deflect attention from “more serious” diseases brought by Central American migrants.

Even Jessica Biel couldn't keep the religious exemption in place. Bless her pretty little head.

Anti-vaxxer arrested for shoving pro-vaccine California state Sen. Richard Pan on street

SACRAMENTO — A man active in the campaign against mandatory childhood vaccinations was arrested Wednesday after he streamed himself live on Facebook shoving state Sen. Richard Pan, who is carrying a bill to tighten the rules for obtaining a medical exemption from the shots required by California schools.

The Sacramento Police Department said it cited Kenneth Austin Bennett, 54, for misdemeanor battery and released him. The Facebook live video that Bennett recorded showed him walking alongside Pan on a Sacramento street, shoving him from behind and later saying, “So, yeah, I pushed him for laughing, for lying.” Pan stumbled after he was pushed.

Shannan Martinez, a spokeswoman for Pan, said the senator is OK and “will not be deterred.” She blamed years of online abuse by vaccine skeptics against Pan, who authored legislation in 2015 eliminating personal belief exemptions for immunizations, for turning him into a target.

“This extremist movement has been using inciting, violent rhetoric for a long time and it should be no surprise that this is the next outcome,” Martinez said. “It’s very good that (the attacker) didn’t have a weapon.

I really like "child death advocates".

Samoa measles epidemic worsens with 24 children now dead

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/kids-hea ... d_nn_tw_ma
He said more than 140 new cases of people contracting the virus had been recorded within the past day, bringing the total to about 2,200 cases since the outbreak began last month. He said there are about 20 critically ill children who remain in hospital intensive care units.

:snippity:

In all, 679 people have been admitted to Samoan hospitals with the disease, accounting for two-thirds of all recent hospital admissions. A majority have been discharged, with about 183 remaining in hospitals.

“These hospitals are not designed to deal with this,” Dr. Scott Wilson told Newshub in the capital, Apia. “The minute you get hospitals running at 200 to 300 percent capacity — I think it speaks for itself. It’s incredibly serious.”

:snippity:

Figures from the World Health Organization and UNICEF indicate that measles immunization rates among Samoan infants have fallen steeply from over 70 percent in 2013 to under 30 percent last year.

Anti-vaxxers visited Samoa 5 months before the outbreak to peddle their nonsense:
Sekrit Stuffs!
And as a number of commenters have pointed out. The death rate from measles in Samoa is ~1 in 100, which directly contradicts the anti-vaxx talking point of measles being a harmless disease.

Measles Outbreak Leads to Shutdown of Public Services in Samoa

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/03/worl ... tw-nytimes
The government of Samoa is shutting down all public services for two days to fight a measles outbreak that has killed more than 55 people and infected thousands of others in the South Pacific island nation over the past two months.

Nearly 3,900 cases of measles have been reported in the country, whose population is just 200,000. Schools have been shuttered since the government declared the outbreak a national emergency last month.

The shutdown, which will take place on Thursday and Friday, comes amid a resurgence of measles in dozens of countries in recent years, including in the United States, the Philippines, the Democratic Republic of Congo and some European countries. Worldwide, more than 140,000 people died from measles last year, according to estimates released on Tuesday by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention.

In Samoa, where vaccination rates are low, more than 150 new cases of infection were disclosed on Monday alone.
