Shelley Mayer Kicks Disabled Children Out of Public School

September 20, 2019 — Shelley Mayer – a Democratic Senator from Westchester, NY – voted YES to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. This resulted in children being kicked out of all public and private schools in New York immediately; including severely disabled children that have extensive educational programs.

Yet she feels completely fine visiting public schools and smiling for photos as if she supports education for “diverse” communities. Sure she does – as long as no one in that community has a sincere religious belief against vaccination. Then those children need to be barred from any school in New York State even though they have been in our school systems for decades and never caused any health problems for anyone.

In fact multiple New York school superintendents are speaking out against the implementation of the repeal of the religious exemption to vaccination. This includes Michael R. Lonergan in Middle Island as well Cheryl Pedisich of Three Village School District.

Please go to Shelley Mayer’s Twitter and Facebook pages and tell her what you think of her vote and her discrimination.

Brad Hoylman Kicks Disabled Children Out of Public School

Because of their parents religious beliefs

***

Hoylman just asked Religious Freedom Advocate Rita Palma to be “friends” on Facebook!

Wants to track her info in real-time

***

August 29, 2019 — Brad Hoylman – a long-time Democratic Senator from Manhattan, NY – was the main sponsor of the bill repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. This resulted in 26,000 children being kicked out of all public and private schools in New York immediately; including severely disabled children that have extensive educational programs.

Hoylman is a Democrat who shows all signs of firmly believing that “the state knows best,” and individual freedoms and liberties are dangerous. It is such a sad twisted reality that Hoylman, who is an openly gay man married with children, has no problem blatantly discriminating against another minority group – religious people. Those religious people are now plaintiffs in a lawsuit trying to prove Hoylman’s repeal of the religious exemption to vaccination is Unconstitutional.

https://thefedupdemocrat.home.blog/2019/08/15/historic-court-hearing-in-new-york-on-childhood-vaccinations/)

The LGBT community is a minority group that has been persecuted and prosecuted for decades, centuries – perhaps millennia! You would think Hoylman might have some compassion for other minority groups, but not if they are religious minority groups. The anti-religious sentiment in Albany, NY is a frightening reality as everyone seems to have forgotten that the very 1st amendment of our Constitution guarantees religious freedom to A-L-L, not just to those whom you think will vote for you.

Hoylman and his supporters say that their repeal of the religious exemption to vaccination in New York is the same as the repeal in California in 2015, and that law has stood up to legal challenges over the past 4 years. However that is not precisely true. People claim that in California they had a “religious” exemption to vaccination, however CA did not have an explicitly religious exemption that was repealed. They had all of their exemptions under the status of “personal belief” exemption which included religious exemption. In fact the lawsuits in California challenging the repeal of their personal belief exemptions never challenged on religious grounds. In New York we exclusively had a religious exemption as the only non-medical exemption to vaccination. Thus the legal challenge in New York seems to be destined to knock on the door of the Supreme Court of the United States.

When 4,000 people showed up to an Albany courthouse dressed in all white on August 14, 2019, to show they wanted their religious freedoms back, Hoylman was “outraged” that they chose to where white as a metaphor similar to the Women of the Disappeared in Argentina. Rita Palma responded to Hoylman’s tweet of “outrage” in a reply that said:

Glad you’ve been keeping an eye and ear on us, #MadBrad. We’ll continue to get #underyourskin like you’re trying to do to us. 4k in Albany yesterday. We’re here to stay. Get used to it. #vaxwoke#TeamParentsNY

Read Hoylman’s tweet here:

On August 28th, 2019, Hoylman sent a “friend request” to Rita Palma on their Facebook accounts. Clearly Hoylman wants him and his staff to have access to Palma’s information in real-time. Hoylman is afraid, as the last thing he wants to see is a law that he sponsored for years to become law only to be overturned and deemed unconstitutional. I picture Brad telling a staffer of his that he wants Rita’s FB wall monitored in real-time, so the staffer sent the friend request. LOL!

At least Hoylman is not breaking the law the way his buddy Assemblyman Jeff Dinowitz is. Dinowitz – who sponsored a companion bill in the Assembly to repeal the religious exemption to vaccination – blocks any-and-everyone who supports religious & health freedoms from his social media accounts. Hoylman doesn’t do that, he asks the most important among us to be “friends.”

Here is Rita Palma’s public response to Hoylman regarding his “friend request” on FB:

Sen. Hoylman sent me – a crazy, conspiracy-theorist, misinformed, non-vaxxer – a friend request. R we gettin’ 2 u #MadBrad?

James Skoufis Kicks Disabled Children Out of Public School

Because of their parents religious beliefs

July 26, 2019 — James Skoufis – a Democratic Senator from Orange County, NY – voted YES to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. This resulted in children being kicked out of all public and private schools in New York immediately; including severely disabled children that have extensive educational programs.

Skoufis was confronted by a crowd of constituents at a town hall meeting he was hosting. “I’m here because my son cannot go to school, because Sen. Skoufis took that right away from him and scoffed at his religious beliefs,” said Patricia Gore of Chester, according to the Times Herald-Record. The same paper reported that Skoufis responded in part by saying these constituents were using “the cloak of religion” to put the greater public health at risk.

https://www.recordonline.com/news/20190723/vaccination-opponents-target-skoufis-with-protest?fbclid=IwAR1YD2e5ZbxV7Opd_-IUefZnMF7-yjwciCPfv7mprjCnW7xc9n_VqnxggzU

Skoufis’ statement is both offensive and ridiculous!

Throughout the entire process of lobbying to keep the religious exemption to vaccination we have faced tons of scorn for our sincere religious beliefs. The disdain Skoufis and many other elected officials in Albany have for religious people and our belief systems is despicable and unconstitutional. This is one of the issues at the crux of the recent lawsuit brought by Robert Kennedy Jr. and Michael Sussman against the repeal of the religious exemption to vaccination in New York.

In addition the CDC reports that less than 1% of students in the state of New York had a religious exemption to vaccination. Everyone admits this is a negligible amount of unvaccinated individuals. The “herd-immunity” theory requires levels of around 92% to provide protection to the greater public health. So getting rid of the religious exemption did *nothing* to increase the greater public health. Skoufis’ statement may make a great sound bite, but it is completely false.

This was never about increasing the greater public health – that is the “cloak” that the Democratic majority hides behind in Albany. This was about satisfying their Big Pharma donors and following orders from Democratic Leadership – Governor Cuomo and Senate Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins. Big Pharma got rid of the religious exemption in an attempt to get *every*child* vaccinated so society won’t see just how healthy unvaccinated children truly are compared to their vaccinated peers; they want to get rid of the control group. This is precisely why Big Pharma, the CDC, the FDA, the NIH have always rejected having a Vaxxed vs. Unvaxxed study. That is, a study where we compare the health of vaccinated children to that of unvaccinated children.

I personally know dozens of unvaccinated children, and they are the healthiest children I know. They don’t have any food allergies or autoimmune diseases. That is a big problem for Big Pharma, and they don’t want anyone to know what I, and many other well-informed citizens already know. If they can force vaccinate every child then no one can ever make the comparison anecdotally or scientifically.

It is also critical to note that there is effectively no medical exemption in New York state, as they are never granted even when doctors request them. The only medical exemptions that are readily approved are for children that are afflicted with serious autoimmune disease such as cancer, and who are on drastic treatments like chemotherapy and/or radiation. Those children *still*must* be vaccinated, but are exempt from the live-virus vaccines only. There have been parents in New York who sought medical exemptions for their children who had severe adverse reactions to vaccines. Their doctors wrote extensive letters detailing why the child must have a medical exemption to vaccination. Nevertheless they were denied. So the only measure those parents had to protect their child was to seek a religious exemption.

Now they have *no* measure to protect their child. Thanks Skoufis!

According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the latest CDC guidelines would require a child to experience anaphylactic shock 8 separate times from 8 separate vaccines before allowing a medical exemption – that is insanity! Kennedy said such guidelines can only have been written by sociopaths!

This is one of many issues that should have been discussed, debated, thought about and rectified *before* getting rid of the religious exemption to vaccination in less than 8 hours in one day on June 13, 2019. This was completely thoughtless legislation pushed by completely thoughtless lawmakers.

In a tweet from reporter Blaize Gomez, Skoufis stated that when he has children he will “get every single one of them vaccinated!”

No one is telling him not to. It is his right and his choice to do so. However he does *not* have the right to force medical procedures on every New York child. This violates the Nuremberg Code of Medical Conduct. This international code – which America is a signatory to – states that “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.” Mandating vaccines on children, then coercing parents into the procedure by not allowing their child into any school if they do not have the medical procedure, violates the Nuremberg code. Every single vaccine in existence says it has not been tested to determine whether or not the vaccine causes cancer. How can it be mandatory for parents to inject their children with medical products when we have no idea whether or not they are carcinogenic?!?

Vaccination Protest of Senator Liu Covered in The Bayside Times

Local Press Gives Balanced Reporting on Vaccine Controversy

July 18, 2019 — The Bayside Times – a local newspaper in Queens, NY – covered the recent parent protest of Senator John Liu for voting YES to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. The coverage was far more balanced than anything you see in the Mainstream Media (MSM) today. It’s no wonder major media conglomerates are currently buying up local presses; they want to shutdown any and all dissent, especially in the area of vaccines.

Here at The Fed Up Democrat we reported on this protest back on July 10th. You can find that coverage at the following link:

https://thefedupdemocrat.home.blog/2019/07/10/senator-john-liu-confronted-by-constituents-in-bayside-ny/

We thank The Bayside Times and reporter Jenna Bagcal for doing real reporting, covering what really happened, and allowing the reader to decide for themselves what is correct and what isn’t. The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, all of the MSM pretend to be “fair & balanced” but their bias is gigantic, especially when it comes to vaccines.

Alessandra Biaggi Kicks Disabled Children Out of Public School

Because of their parents religious beliefs

July 16, 2019 — Alessandra Biaggi – a first-term Democratic Senator from the Bronx, NY – voted YES to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. She was an enthusiastic cosponsor of the bill. This resulted in children being kicked out of all public and private schools in New York immediately; including severely disabled children that have extensive educational programs.

On Bronx12 News last night Senator Biaggi admitted that when she voted YES to repeal the religious exemption to vaccination, there was absolutely no plan in place to continue servicing students with disabilities that the new law kicked out of school.

At 17 minutes and 40 seconds into this broadcast by Bronx12 a caller named Sharon from Throgsneck asked Senator Biaggi about the repeal of the Religious Exemption to Vaccination. She asked what is going to be done for special needs children who are kicked out of summer programs and schools. Many have 12-month long programs and are right now kicked out of them. Biaggi responded by saying,

“The state right now is working to create guidelines to make sure students that have IEPs needs are being met.”

Watch for yourself here: http://bronx.news12.com/story/40790144/ask-the-state-senator-alessandra-biaggi-july-2019?fbclid=IwAR3DJ8dS-y5om-mZJ1IKt2dtn4-Iilyo4MMeE_sqXYIKARNvMRldNXucEN0

Basically Biaggi admitted what we already know – Albany had absolutely no plan for meeting any of the needs of any child that had a religious exemption to vaccination after the repeal. That’s the truth. The Democrats “plan” was if you are currently not vaccinated, get vaccinated or leave the state. I truly believe behind closed doors that is the over-arching premise of the Democrats who voted to repeal the exemption.

Why didn’t they hold public hearings to figure out these issues?

Why didn’t anyone propose an amendment to the bill?

Why was the bill rushed through Albany in one day in just 7 hours?

Why? Because Big Pharma owns the Democratic Majority in New York State, that’s why. Sure there are about 20 decent Democrats left in Albany – and I greatly respect all of them who did the right thing and voted NO on the repeal bill. However I have zero respect for the majority in Albany today – especially the majority leadership.

Also in Biaggi’s district, an 11-year-old boy was vaccinated with the HPV vaccine without parental knowledge or consent. Bronx12 News did an excellent job reporting on this horrifying violation of a child and his parents rights. The boys mother was furious, as she should be! Funny thing is, Biaggi currently sponsors a bill that would make it perfectly legal to vaccinate any 11-year-old boy or girl without parental knowledge or consent.

Biaggi will be “celebrating” with her buddy Assemblyman Dinowitz – who was the main sponsor of the bill that repealed the religious exemption to vaccination – tonight in the Bronx. Learn about that gem of a man, and a protest that will be happening tonight, here: https://thefedupdemocrat.home.blog/2019/07/14/jeff-dinowitz-kicks-disabled-children-out-of-public-school/

***Update*** July 17, 2019 — At the protest last night about 200 people gathered on the sidewalk with signs and chants against Dinowitz & Biaggi. A few parents who support health & religious freedom were able to get inside the event itself. One mother yelled her question out at the end of the event which was partially caught on video at the following Facebook link: blob:https://www.facebook.com/d38ed7dc-4e3b-4549-b93f-dedc04b46710

Jeff Dinowitz Kicks Disabled Children Out of Public School

Because of their parents religious beliefs

July 11, 2019 — Jeffery Dinowitz – a long-time Democratic Assemblyman from the Bronx, NY – was the main sponsor of the bill repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. This resulted in children being kicked out of all public and private schools in New York immediately; including severely disabled children that have extensive educational programs.

When Dinowitz debated his bill on the floor of the Assembly he was slaughtered by Assemblyman Abinanit, also a Democrat, who opposed the bill. Dinowitz – the man who called religious beliefs “utter garbage” – had no problem calling vaccines “miracles.” However he was unable to refute Abinanti when he stated there was no evidence at all linking any child with a religious exemption to the measles outbreak. Dionowitz also couldn’t explain why all the schools that were shutdown for having unvaccinated children in them did not have even one case of measles in the schools themselves!

Assemblyman Dinowitz is such a class act, he pretended to scratch his face as a way to give the middle finger to parents who were protesting him outside of a press conference he held to promote his bill. What a guy! George Diaz, a progressive Democrat from Dinowitz district, has announced he will be running against Dinowitz in the Democratic primary of 2020. Good luck Diaz! I’m behind you 100%!

#MiddleFingerwitz – Assemblyman flips off protesting parents

Also in Dinowitz’s district, an 11-year-old boy was vaccinated with the HPV vaccine without parental knowledge or consent. Bronx12 News did an excellent job reporting on this horrifying violation of a child and his parents rights. The boys mother was furious, as she should be! Funny thing is, Dinowitz currently sponsors a bill that would make it perfectly legal to vaccinate any 11-year-old boy or girl without parental knowledge or consent.

https://thefedupdemocrat.home.blog/2019/06/18/bronx-boy-illegally-vaxxed-in-dinowitz-district/

Coincidence?

This law that good-ol’ Jeff is sponsoring will especially take away the rights of Black & Latino children more than any others. There are 200 school-based-clinics throughout NYC. All of them have the HPV vaccine on hand, and almost all of them are located in predominantly Black & Latino neighborhoods. I guess Jeff thinks Black & Latino parents don’t know how to make health decisions for their own children.

Here is all the information about the protest against Dinowitz on July 16th:

***Update*** July 17, 2019 — At the protest last night about 200 people gathered on the sidewalk with signs and chants against Dinowitz & Biaggi.

Senator John Liu Confronted by Constituents in Bayside, NY

John Liu Voted to Kick Disabled Children Out of Public School

July 10, 2019 – Yesterday State Senator John Liu was confronted by constituents at a fund raiser he was holding in Bayside, Queens. The Senator voted to kick disabled children out of all schools in New York when he voted YES to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination and his constituents were not happy with him. The confrontation was filmed by Bayside Live TV and streamed live on Facebook at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/BaysideLiveTV/videos/1295382193975757/

It was also streamed live on Facebook by Melissa Bordes at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/melissa.bordes.1/videos/10104107713990307/?hc_ref=ARR2JchCS3iuBWB38iJp1IMw7Nht1GCzsrRTLjq6I5tatOOZUdN6Mk_89447dvwQ-y0

Jenna Bagcal from the Queens Courier showed up to cover the protest. When John Liu passed Bagcal they greeted each other by name (they know each other). Let’s see if Bagcal’s coverage is “fair & balanced.” (Whenever her report is published I will include it at the bottom of this post.)

Protesting parents were being interviewed by Bayside Live TV when John Liu walked into the middle of the broadcast. He answered questions and defended his vote to kick disabled children out of public school. However in Orwellian fashion he said, “We didn’t kick anyone out of school” which is a complete, boldfaced lie!

26,000 children who held a religious exemption to vaccination will not be allowed back into school come September. That’s a fact. It may not be a fact John Liu would like to admit to – it must suck when the facts are politically inconvenient – but it is an undeniable truth that he was very comfortable denying and lying about while cameras were rolling.

What bothered parents the most was that the entire time John Liu engaged these parents (parents who are rightfully angry their children were kicked out of school by his vote) was that he maintained a smile during the entire confrontation.

It was one of those fake “shaking hands & kissing babies” smiles that politicians plaster on their face. But how tone deaf is it to think this was the appropriate response when looking into the faces of constituents whose children you just kicked out of all New York schools! Especially when he had the nerve to flat out lie and say, “We didn’t kick anyone out of school.”

As Liu walked away from constituents they chanted, “VOTE HIM OUT” as he walked into his fundraiser. Hundreds of flyers were handed out, and hundreds of conversations were engaged in with Bayside residents on the streets. If you want to contact Senator Liu and tell him your opinion on his vote that kicked 26,000 children out of school call his office at 718-765-6675, and Email him at Liu@nysenate.gov
