Jim Carrey calls California Governor ‘Fascist’ Over Vaccine Law

Is California Governor Jerry Brown included in your list, Jim?

In a series of escalating Tweets yesterday, Carrey took to social media to voice his outrage with California’s governor. He labelled Brown a ‘fascist’ after he approved one of the stingiest immunization programs in the country.

Carrey held nothing back in a tirade to his 14 million followers:

Over a dozen Tweets long, the actor does insist he’s ‘pro-vaccine’. He believes there’s a direct link between vaccines and autism, and is only ‘anti-neurotoxin’, as chemicals such as thimerosal and mercury carry a risk to children.

Carrey has been activist on the issue since his relationship with Jenny McCarthy, who claims her son’s autism was due to vaccines.

The Centre for Disease Control has been adamant that autism and vaccines are unlinked. There’s general agreement with the CDC that there is “no link between thimerosal-containing vaccines and [autism], as well as no link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and [autism] in children.”

Carrey had the CDC covered too:

California now joins West Virginia and Mississippi as the only states lacking a personal belief-system for vaccines, according to the Associated Press. In other words, they have no choice or say in whether to be vaccinated or not – it has to be done, by law.

“The science is clear that vaccines dramatically protect children against a number of infectious and dangerous diseases,” Brown wrote in a message. “While it’s true that no medical intervention is without risk, the evidence shows that immunization powerfully benefits and protects the community.”
