One might have expected Meryl’s recent stay in hospital and surgery to have softened her rabid criticism of doctors and science-based medicine. If nothing else, most people would want to avoid the obvious hypocrisy of claiming medicine:
…even while she’s still recuperating from surgery in a hospital.
But we know from past experience that Meryl has no problem at all with being a hypocrite and having the facts against her doesn’t give her the slightest pause for thought. So no one should have been surprised when she grunted out her latest warm & steaming pile of conspiracy:
Really, Meryl? Your entire family, for generations, has been killed off by doctors? I don’t suppose you have the slightest shred of evidence to back up that claim? Didn’t think so.
Things do work differently in Merylworld…we already know that like most rabid antivaxers she confuses correlation with causation.
She’s also hopeless with maths, so much so that she’s had a logical fallacy named after her: the Doreyan fallacy assumes that any percentage lower than 100% is equal to 0%. So a vaccine that is measured at 85% effectiveness becomes, in Meryl’s view, “completely ineffective” and the same as not vaccinating at all.
(Wow, the casinos must love it when Meryl drops in play…perhaps that’s why the AVN rakes in $280,000 per year for magazines they promise but don’t publish and Meryl still begs for cash every week?)
So perhaps that explains why Meryl attributes every death, everywhere to evil doctors?
We’ve seen a hint of her paranoia when ranting about the person who, “…went into hospital healthy…” (she only had lung cancer after all, perfectly healthy!) and was dead only a few weeks later. Of course it wasn’t the lung cancer that killed her, it was the evil doctors who were only pretending to try and save her! Riiiiggghhht…
Meryl does mental gymnastics to be able to blame her favourite scapegoat every time someone dies, but at least she is so clumsy about it that everyone sees what she’s doing.
Meryl is such a dummy, she’s as thick as two planks and makes no attempt to hide it. She’s been described as “The Pauline Hanson of antivaccination” which is fairly apt, like Ms Hanson she is in the twilight of her career but still as funny as hell. Oh, Meryl!
Meryl was somewhat upset to learn that her lie-filled radio interview was no longer going to run on the inflight audio on American Airlines. She ranted, “Censorship is NEVER acceptable!”.
How ironic then, that she has banned hundreds of people from the AVN Facebook page for politely, respectfully pointing out one of Meryl’s many
lies factual errors.
And then, a short time later, Meryl decides that she needs to make her hypocrisy even more obvious because there are still a few people left who haven’t noticed it yet. So she posted this:
Poor Meryl often claims persecution and even martyrdom in order to attract sympathy and, more importantly, cash donations from her followers. Meryl’s lies are now exposed no matter where she publishes them and her misinformation is corrected immediately by the many rational & educated observers now keeping an eye on her – but this doesn’t make for a dramatic story to bring in the big bucks. So Meryl needs to lie about the opposition to her lies in order to keep the big bucks rolling in. After all, $280,000 per year doesn’t just grow on trees you know!
Here’s a textbook example of Meryl in action:
Hilariously original blogger Shelley Stocken has proposed that whenever Meryl makes one of her increasingly infrequent public appearances, her host should introduce her to the audience with a great deal more honesty and accuracy than Meryl herself utters when she speaks. Something like this would do nicely:
In 2010, Meryl earned a unique distinction for her organisation: after a lengthy investigation it was found to publish antivaccination misinformation. In other words, Meryl was government-certified as a liar.
Well done, Meryl! All antivaccinationists lie, but no one else has lied as publicly, obviously and callously as you – sufficient to receive this unique recognition.
Here’s a quick introduction to a few of Meryl’s favourite lies:
There is an ancient proverb which reads, “If Meryl Dorey’s lies were laid end to end, they would stretch…all the way from the start of a very large book to the end of it”.
For the last couple of years, Ken McLeod has been busy proving the wisdom of this saying in a unique way: he’s simply been documenting every lie that Meryl tells, as she tells them. Well, nearly every lie, because sometimes her lies come so thick & fast that no one can hope to keep up. But most of them are being captured and shared in ebooks: 3 full ebooks so far and doubtless still more to come in future.
Have a read for yourself and look at Meryl’s standard level of honesty:
This woman couldn’t lie straight in bed!
Everyone makes a mistake now and then, occasionally gets a fact or two wrong and usually corrects themselves when it’s pointed out. But only Meryl can demonstrate such a true mastery of mistakes that it is breathtaking to watch her in action. She truly is a Warrior of Wrong, the Emperess of Error!
Meryl’s ill-fated recent trip to Perth caused her a litany of woes, not least of which was triggering a government investigation of the AVN and significant publicity of same. Meryl decided to counter the onslaught of bad press the only way she knows how: by lying some more. Meryl put out a press release claiming there was no investigation into the AVN and alleging that the journalist who wrote the story also submitted the complaint.
A month later the results are well and truly in:
Meryl Dorey managed to get every single fact in her press release wrong. That’s all of them. That type of form, that level of consistent & flawless mastery is only ever shown by the truly gifted who’ve also spent many long years practicing their craft. Yes, she’s the Queen of Cock-Ups, the Baroness of Bloopers, the Master of Misjudgment, the General of Goofs, the Duchess of Dumb, the Sovereign of Stuff-Ups…I could do this all day, but you get the idea.
Meryl is generally shameless: she never seems to get embarrassed, she can say the stupidest things with a straight face and doesn’t get embarrassed when she’s show to be wildly, completely, inexcusably wrong.
So that makes this video a rare treat from the archives: Meryl saying something so spectacularly dumb that even she was embarrassed. The AVN took this video down and filed false DMCA notices to try and get it removed from other sites in the hope that it would disappear entirely. No such luck Meryl, we’re going to be laughing at this for a long time to come…
People are starting to tire of Meryl’s constant lying about vaccination…some of them have even started a Facebook page to provide a running commentary on her lies as she tells them and provide the real facts. Visit Australian Vaccination Network Corrected for more.
