We left the camp after we had inoculated the children for polio... they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms... And I thought, my God... the genius of that! The genius! The will to do that!

The Chinese scammers at SCIRP are the Wal*Mart of parasitical publishing; they cater to the low-rent rough-trade end of the desperate-to-publish market, charging only $99 to host one's vanity production on-line in one of their journal-shaped scamsites, while maintaining their income stream through indiscriminate bulk sales. Recall, for example, the Akkie Secrets of Martian Management fantasia from a couple of Dravidian Racial Supremacy cockwombles.

Knowing that they are not designed to be read, a team of anti-vaccine campaigners published their latest bolus of mendacity through a SCIRP spigot in the hope of sneaking it, unnoticed, into the ouroboric closed-cycle human centipede of antivax discourse. The journal in this case, the OA Library Journal, has abandoned all pretence of having "criteria" or "standards" or "focus", even in the title.

It is all about the DEPOPULATION AGENDA and the Gates / WHO conspiracy to pollute the bodies of Third-World womens with a method of birth-control that doesn't work, concealed in the Trojan Horse of tetanus vaccine. The fantasy is impeccably documented, with citations to conspiracy websites, fetus-licking forced-birthers, and Vaccine Weekly (i.e. a headline-clipping service).

Just saying, "sneaking past" never works.

The references are further padded with citations to scholarship-manque publications from Christopher Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic, which might account for the presence of Shaw and Tomljenovic within the authorship list. These two are persons of interest to Riddled, on account of how frequently they find themselves being forced against their wills to sign their co-authorly names to tragically regrettable cognitive core-dumps, and this may be another example.

The first author is John Oller Jr, who is evidently proud of this opuscule, uploading a copy to his ResearchGate account and including it in his CV (under the original working title of "WHO Links Tetanus Toxoid to Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and Why Are They Doing It"). Oller's CV also speaks of his inordinate pride in an essay he wrote for 'Answers in Genesis' on Biblical-Literalist Linguistics [the gist: the 6000 years elapsed since Project Babel Tower ended in recriminations and a confusion of tongues is plenty time enough for each language phylum like Indo-European and Sino-Tibetan to branch into the present degree of diversity]. For Oller is an evolution-denying Young-Earth Creationist, with an academic grounding in speech therapy, which must have come in useful when he was editing a predatory journal on 'Entropy' and collaborating with Shaw and Tomljenovic on the topic of vaccine-adjuvant aluminium and biosemantic semiology fritillary calenture hatstand. He is clearly stupid enough to be not allowed out-of-doors when it is raining for fear that he will stare up at the clouds with mouth agape until he drowns; I cannot help suspecting that he was home-schooled. I like to think that Oller subscribes to the Institute for Creation Linguistics. He demonstrably belongs to the Institute for Creation Science.

This paragraph is Oller's contribution, I deduce from its tone of robotic pedantry:
Our fourth method involved a “thought experiment” applying the simplest type of mathematical probative tests for a variety of Euclidean congruence [65]. The KCDA claimed that the WHO dosage schedule of five shots administered in six month increments was inconsistent with published tetanus vaccination schedules. So, our simple probative test was to compare the published vaccination schedules for TT, t, with the published schedules for TT/ßhCG, ß. Calling the schedule used in Kenya, k, and taking “=” to mean congruent, if t ≠ ß, but ß = k, and kt, it follows that k is a dosage schedule appropriate to TT/ßhCG, the WHO antifertility vaccine. The simple test of congruence of dosage schedules is not conclusive proof by itself, but it is consistent with the opinion of the authors that the WHO followed a dosage schedule appropriate for TT/ßhCG in Kenya but inappropriate for TT vaccine.
Anyway, the present statement of claims first bubbled up from the sewers three years ago, with Dr Wahome Ngare and Bishop-Doctor Karanja -- spokesman and president respectively of the Kenyan Catholic Doctors Association -- pimping out the fabulated allegations like their own daughters, to be regurged by the Kenyan Catholic hierarchy and by fetus-fondling fecundity fetishists everywhere. At the time the 'tainted vaccines' claims were quickly dismissed, with people all "you lied to us about the nature of the samples so we the tests we applied weren't valid", and "no, our tests only gave an upper limit on the presence of hGC, there was probably none".

The KCDA turns out to be a genuine organisation, with the express agenda of re-medievalising medicine, and dressing up ecclesiastic dogma with a white lab-coat over the episcopal robes; it was founded by that same Catholic hierarchy, to tell them whatever fabrications they want to hear but with a gloss of independence. If it has recruits other than Ngare and Karanja, they are not rushing to advertise their membership. Reading between the lions, the real concern held by the Kenyan branch of the Catholicism franchise about the tetanus vaccination program was that the Gubblement was trying to deliver it without routing it through the godbothering establishment to let them cream off a profit and claim credit for the benefit...
The Catholic Church has not been engaged as members and participants of the Health Sector Coordinating Committee and in the respective Technical Working Group.
...so they cooked up a story to sabotage the program instead. See, people, this is what happens when you allow faith-based institutions to take a role in health-service provision: they will not rest content with just a slice of the cake, for their greed is divinely sanctioned.

Which leads us to the fourth and fifth authors on this paper: Ngare and Karanja themselves, a pair of theocratic charlatans and unmitigated gobshites. Harken to the wit and wisdom of Doctor-Bishop Karanja! In 2003:
Dr STEPHEN KARANJA Catholic gynaecologist It was a condom bonfire. We had more than 5-10 thousand people, young people, old people, simple men from the streets.
BRADSHAW: Did you go?
KARANJA: Who, myself? I was there. I have to be there. I lead by example. We had discussions about the condom. We had scientific presentations, we had social presentations, then we had… How do you want to call it… We had a symbolic burning of the evil that is the condom.
In 2011:
Dr. Karanja notes that despite being vaccinated against Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) that causes cancer of the cervix, one can still get it if they indulge in irresponsible sex...
Dr. Karanja notes that the reason why children are also dying of cancer is because lactating mothers are taking contraceptives that are passed on to children through breast milk.
Insufficiently-frequent pregnancy is why women get cancer: "many sexual partners, early sex debuts, use of contraceptives and staying too long without having a child in the case of women."
He sounds nice.

Harken to the wit and wisdom of Dr Ngare! Here he explains that the Gubblement must be lying about the continued fertility of tetanus-vaccine recipients, why would he lie?
Coming from a religious fraudster who has built his career out of telling people they should give him moneys and power because he's friends with a powerful sky fairy, the question is probably rhetorical.

The Snopes entry on the Kenyan Depopulation Hoax argues that Ngare's dichotomy is false, and offers the mollifying middle-ground that Ngare is sincerely mistaken. Well, no, he and his fellow episcopal Talivangelists knew the truth but preferred to lie. Yes, they come across as caricatures of Dark-Ages nescience and power-grasping hypocrisy, be-robed BWAA-HA-HAing sacerdotal scoundrels dreamed up by PZ Myers, but that is how they set out to act.

A previous incarnation of the Depopulation Agenda campfire-story occurred in the Philippines in 1995. Again, local theocrats decided to sabotage a vaccine program by faking reports that the neonatal-tetanus component was Stealth Sterility, and obtaining a district court restraining order to pause it [the program was associated with a political aspirant with secular inclination, so it could not be allowed to succeed; the pro-preventable-disease counter-campaign was a way of undercutting his godless popularity].* Multiple vaccine schedules were disrupted, and one can only speculate how many children died in consequence... but whatever the number, it was a small price for other people to pay, in the cause of maintaining the Church's perogatives and status. Ngare and Karanja drew on this 1995 precedent for their 2014 infant-mortality campaign, recycling much of its rhetoric and mendacity, and it is cited in this paper.

In 2015 the KCDA tried to disrupt a different Kenyan vaccine program -- polio, this time -- with the same excuse, that it smelled of Super-Sekrit Birth Control. The bishops were not subtle with their reminders to the gubblement, that the problem could easily go away if only the right feelings and itchy palms were assuaged.
The country's Conference of Catholic Bishops declared a boycott of the World Health Organization's vaccination campaign, saying they needed to "test" whether ingredients contain a derivative of estrogen. Dr. Wahome Ngare of the Kenyan Catholic Doctor's Association alleged that the presence of the female hormone could sterilize children.
I am surprised that this later evidence of UN Black-Helicopter Chemtrail Depop is not mentioned in the new paper. Perhaps the authors are already planning a sequel.
"There are all sorts of stories out there," [Ngare] told me. "Vaccines can cause autism. Vaccines have been used for spread of HIV. There are some cancer-causing viruses that you'd find in vaccines. So there are lot of stories. Some of them we don't know whether they're true or not true."
I pointed out to him that research has shown that claims of vaccines being linked to autism and HIV and cancer are in fact not true.
His response: "We could debate this forever."
Christopher Shaw prides himself on his activism for progressive causes. Why he chose to end his career by crawling into bed with this execrable gang of extreme-right theocratic shitweasels is anybody's guess.
* In subsequent reality-untethered embellishments of the story, the Manila Regional Court was replaced by the Supreme Court of the Philippines, because more impressive.
LifeSiteNews.com reported that in 1995, the Catholic Women’s League of the Philippines won a court order halting a UNICEF anti-tetanus program because the vaccine had been laced with B-hCG, which when given in a vaccine permanently causes women to be unable to sustain a pregnancy. The Supreme Court of the Philippines found the surreptitious sterilization program had already vaccinated three million women, aged 12 to 45. B-hCG-laced vaccine was also found in at least four other developing countries.
It is also an article of faith in these forced-birth anti-vax compulsive-lying circles that the vaccine drive was imposed on the Philippines by UNICEF and WHO and black helicopters, as there is no place in their racist cockwomble world for the notion that benighted brown people could instigate and operate their own public-health initiatives.
