Jim Carrey went on a twitter rant over California’s state-wide vaccination policy. The actor believes that vaccines poison children, but claims he is not anti-vaccine. John Iadarola and Ana Kasparian (The Point) hosts of The Young Turks discuss.
"Jim Carrey launched into an anti-vaccination rant on Twitter Tuesday after California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill requiring all public school children in the state to be vaccinated starting in 2016. In a series of tweets, the actor accused the Centers for Disease Control of being "corrupt" and painted Brown as a "corporate fascist that must be stopped."
"California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in manditory [sic] vaccines," Carrey tweeted. "They say mercury in fish is dangerous but forcing all of our children to be injected with mercury in Thimerosol is no risk. Make sense?"
The strict bill also removes vaccination exemptions based on religious beliefs, The Hollywood Reporter writes. "I am not anti-vaccine. I am anti-Thimerosal, anti-mercury. They have taken some of the mercury-laden Thimerosal out of vaccines. NOT ALL," Carrey tweeted. "The CDC can't solve a problem they helped start. It's too risky to admit they have been wrong about mercury/Thimerasol. They are corrupt." Carrey ended his rant by telling parents to check out the documentary Trace Amounts."
