In an update to this story earlier this month about an anti-vaccination informational tour, Anti-vaccination campaigner Sherri Tenpenny cancels Australian tour The Guardian.
Eight venues had cancelled because of opposition, mainly by parents, to a message that did not support children’s health. However, the Tenpenny party said something much different and highly questionable.
The controversial US anti-vaccination campaigner Sherri Tenpenny has cancelled her Australian tour following weeks of public pressure, blaming “anti-free-speech terrorists”.
On Wednesday night a joint announcement from Tenpenny and the Queensland-based tour organiser, Stephanie Messenger, was published on Facebook outlining their reasons for cancelling.
“We have reached a point where we can no longer guarantee the safety of those attending the seminars,” the statement said.
“The anti-free-speech terrorists have voiced bomb threats and have threatened violence against venue owners and their families.”
One venue owner, from Queensland, reported receiving a bomb threat, but that was later revealed to have come from an anti-vaccination advocate who was disturbed by the thought that Tenpenny’s event might not go ahead.
What a crew! It looks like they sabotaged themselves! Their warped sense of reality is right on target with their similarly warped health message.
Science-based advocates in Australia are very happy this ridiculousness is being exposed.
