Rex Murphy: Anti-Vaxxers Have 'The Intellectual Power Of A Dead Tree Stump'

“Anti-vaccination is intensely selfish. Not vaccinating a child amounts to taking a free ride on the good practices of others.”

Rex Murphy has weighed in to the anti-vaccination debate by eviscerating actress Jenny McCarthy and her “fellow neurosurgeons on ‘The View’.”

“They’ve confessed to have the intellectual power of a dead tree stump and many even living in one,” the CBC News pundit says.

Furor over the anti-vaccination movement has picked up traction in recent weeks due to a measles outbreak.

Murphy sums up anti-vaxxers in three minutes, describing them as “intensely selfish.”

“Not vaccinating a child amounts to taking a free ride on the good practices of others. Their good practice is the real protection against your immense carelessness,” he says. “Dr. McCarthy would be proud.”
