Pinterest has blocked all vaccine-related searches on the social media platform in an effort to combat the “misleading content” of the anti-vaccination movement, a spokesperson said Wednesday.

Speaking in an appearance on CNBC, a spokesman for the online pinboard said it implemented the ban on the searches until it can come up with a more permanent strategy to tackle content attempting to discredit vaccinations.

“We want Pinterest to be an inspiring place for people, and there’s nothing inspiring about misinformation,” a Pinterest spokesperson said. “That’s why we continue to work on new ways of keeping misleading content off our platform and out of our recommendations engine.”

      Yes, the more that the fanatic-pro-vaxxers viciously vilify and cruelly expel all people who — totally legitimately — simply do not want to be injured and ruined by these things, and the more that they shout down anyone who DARES to question the “holy, holy, vaccines,” and the more that they block and silence all reports of the serious problems and horrific dangers of vaccines — in other words, the more that they do what they have been doing — the more that people will see them for who they are: Misguided people who are ACTING LIKE a bunch of self-righteous-fascist-tyrants!!

      Yes, Misguided people who are ACTING LIKE a bunch of self-righteous-fascist-tyrants — it may not really be their fault, for they — are being CLEVERLY MANIPULATED by the wicked leaders in the Big Pharma industries.
