I love Icelandic names. Just reading them makes me think of Vikings and valkyries. One name that I can’t get out of my head right now is “Iris Erlingsdottir”. She’s an Icelandic journalist who put up a pro-vaccine piece on Huffington Post. Not only is the piece pro-vaccine, but it is quite critical of her fellow HuffPo blogger “Dr.” Jenny McCarthy, the actress who, after having a child and doing a lot of googling, decided that vaccines are evil. She is so convinced of the danger of vaccine that she explicitly wishes our children to suffer from vaccine-preventable diseases to try to prove her point.
I’m not sure if Jenny is a liar, or just so damned stupid that she’ll parrot everyone else’s lies. But Ms Erlingsdottir doesn’t seem to be too concerned with Jenny’s lies, but the truth about vaccine-preventable illnesses. Given HuffPo’s history, I’d imagine She’ll get some pretty unpleasant responses. It couldn’t hurt to go over there and give her some support.
