Blacklisting and Censorship Violates Freedom of Thought, Speech and Conscience


by Barbara Loe Fisher, The Tenpenny Report:

This excerpt is from a special report Barbara researched and wrote to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. Her commentary regards the systematic abuse of parents with vaccine injured children. It also covers the silencing of Barbara’s own voice and information published by the charitable organization, the National Vaccine Information Center. Her report highlights the alarming erosion of freedom of thought, speech, and conscience, particularly in the context of informed consent and advocacy.  



Freedom of thought, speech and conscience are inalienable natural[1] and civil rights recognized in America and in countries where respect for autonomy[2] and protection of bodily integrity [3] [4] [5] places limits on the power of the state.

This report contains information about the collaborative actions taken by government officials, political operatives, corporations, academic and financial institutions, media, philanthropic foundations, and global governmental organizations to target, discredit, discriminate against and censor me and NVIC for our mission since 1982 to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education, and to defend the legal right of Americans to make voluntary decisions about vaccination without being coerced or sanctioned for the decision made. [13]

NVIC’s Long Record of Vaccine Safety and Freedom Advocacy Targeted for Censorship

In researching this report, I was shocked and saddened by the evidence I found to substantiate that I and NVIC have been blacklisted, even though we have a long, transparent credible public record of working responsibly in the U.S. with the federal and state governments, and urging others to do the same. [14] [15] [16] [17] [18] [19] It is clear that we have been subjected to demonization and sanctions because for four decades we have exercised our right to dissent and criticize the safety and effectiveness of government recommended vaccines, and we have asked federal health officials to fill in vaccine safety science knowledge gaps, and we have worked in the states to reform U.S. public health policies and vaccine laws.[20]

I spent three months researching and writing this report because I wanted to understand who, what, when, how, and why NVIC was ghosted on the Internet and my voice was silenced. While we were being demonized and our presence on the Internet was slowly being suppressed – particularly between 2009 and 2019 – which was followed by de-platforming from four major social media platforms and Pay Pal in 2021, [21] [22] [23] I and NVIC’s staff and volunteers were so busy trying to deal with the blocking of public access to our information that we did not have time to stop and analyze exactly who was responsible. We poured all of our resources into educating and empowering Americans at the grassroots level in support of the legal right to make informed and voluntary decisions about vaccination. [24] [25]

The decades of grassroots education and advocacy that NVIC has performed, particularly at the state level between 2010 and 2020 through the online NVIC Advocacy Portal, culminated in a national rejection of proposed COVID vaccine mandate bills for children to attend school in America. [26] All 50 state legislatures refused to mandate the federally recommended COVID-19 vaccine for children as a condition of receiving a private or public school education, even though the government mandated the vaccine for federal employees and large private corporations as a condition of employment. [27]

It is an historic milestone in the history of state-based grassroots advocacy that no legislature in America forced parents to choose between denying their children a school education or injecting them with a biological product recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a product which has proven to be highly reactive and unreliable in preventing infection and transmission. [28] [29] [30] [31]

The Rise of the Censorship/Disinformation Industrial Complex

In my report, I take the reader on a chronological step-by-step journey from 1982 through 2023, giving an overview of the history of the vaccine safety and informed consent movement in America against the backdrop of the creation of a global mass vaccination infrastructure facilitated by public-private business partnerships encouraged and funded by Congress. [32] I describe the major players who, for the past decade especially, have sought to block online conversations about vaccination that do not conform with government and World Health Organization policy, and have used public opposition to vaccine mandates as a political tool to help build what is being aptly characterized as the “Censorship Industrial Complex” or the “Disinformation Industrial Complex.” [33] [34] [35] [36] [37] [38]

In the early 1980s, parents of DPT vaccine injured children went head-to-head with the mandatory vaccination lobby led by the pharmaceutical industry, public health and medical trade, and we managed to secure historic acknowledgement in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 that vaccine safety should be made a national priority. [39] [40] That accomplishment was based on the fact that federally licensed and recommended vaccines for children, which are mandated by states, can and do injure and kill a minority of them. [41] Acknowledgement of that inconvenient truth in the late 20th century, a truth still often denied by those conducting the business of vaccination, planted the first seeds that grew into a national and international Censorship Industrial Complex in the 21st century, which targets not only “vaccine hesitancy,” but a cross-section of political, economic, cultural value and belief issues.
