I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I first posted the story of Megan Elizabeth Everett. She’s the woman from Sunrise, Florida, who had joint custody of her daughter and went on the run because she didn’t want her daughter vaccinated. Not only that but she allegedly wanted her then 2-year-old daughter to be homeschooled so she could only learn about the Confederacy. The crazy runs deep in this one.
Yesterday Everett was captured not too far outside of Jacksonville, Florida, while using an assumed name for both her and her daughter. She was featured on the CNN show ‘The Hunt’ that’s hosted by former America’s Most Wanted host John Walsh. I didn’t know he had a new show. Good for him. But I digress.
While I’m glad that her daughter is now safe and back in the arms of her caring father this story affords me the opportunity to discuss some things. The first is, like I keep saying, there is no scientific evidence linking vaccinations to Autism. For some reason Autism is the bogeyman of Luddites who want to scare people into believe whatever medical conspiracy theory they subscribe to. Secondly there needs to be more checks and balances when it comes to homeschooling. Too many people use homeschooling as a way to either hide child abuse from authorities or to indoctrinate them into some hateful thinking. I’m sorry to the legitimate homeschoolers but too many bad apples are ruining it for you. Lastly, as I’ve posted recently, the Confederacy is nothing to celebrate. Even if you take away the racism you still left with a bunch of seditionists and losers.
I don’t see why anybody would want their kid to be a disease carrying racist yet here we are.
