Brittany Kara is a self-professed hypnotherapist, author, Master NLP Practitioner, nutrition coach and mother. She is also an adamant anti-vaxxer who recently posted a 40-minute Facebook Live video explaining that “vaccinations are evil” because there is no mention of them in The Bible.
The Real Truther— a Facebook page devoted to “exposing the lies, hate and prejudice of the anti-science movement” pulled a shortened clip from Kara’s original video, in which she discusses her ability to tell whether a child has been vaccinated just by looking them in the eyes:
“With a vaccine injury, I can actually look at a child and I can tell right away by their eyes and by the symmetry of their face if they have received vaccines or if they are severely vaccine-injured,” says Kara, as though the two are identical, plausible, or anything but totally insane.
She goes on to say that she’s made a habit of approaching perfect strangers at the park to berate them for vaccinating their children. “It’s something that I’ve been able to do the last couple years. I can look at a child, and I go up to parents at parks and this happens to me in my life all the time, and I’m like, ‘your child has had too many vaccines you need to stop vaccinating immediately.’” This happens to her all the time?
Kara’s full 40-minute video kicks off with an explanation of what got her so curious about vaccinations in the first place. She was curious, she says, about “the entire structure of medicine that we now are programmed to believe in” so she decided to dive “super deep into my Bible” and by “watching all of these videos on YouTube.”
She says that vaccinations are never explicitly mentioned in the Bible.
“There’s nothing in the Bible that talks about vaccines. So I just want you guys to think about that. So if God knew in the future that He was gonna help create these amazing things that were gonna just change our health and be the best, you know, scientific advancement in human society ever, and it’s just, ‘Oh my gosh, they’re so great,’ like, why isn’t there anything… any inkling of talk about these things called ‘vaccinations’ coming into being later to save people?
Like, if that was really God’s plan, and they’re so amazing, then why isn’t it in there at all?”
A valid question. Kara neglected to reason why YouTube– the tool she used to “geek out” on her Bible studies– was not a tool of utmost evil as well, having been omitted from the Old Testament. Also curiously missing were: Amazon, where she peddles her book, hair straighteners, which she clearly uses with fury, Apple headphones with built-in mics, which surely belongs in the realm of witchery, and Facebook Live, with which she punished everyone for 40 minutes. And Los Angeles, where she resides.
Somehow, it gets worse. At one point, Kara delivers this bewildering, muddled statement:
“When did we decide that we were gonna inject our healthy babies with dead babies? When did we decide that that was a smart thing to do and expect them to not have brain damage, and then we expect them not to have gender disorders?”
So, to be clear: Vaccines are made of dead babies, cause brain damage, and gender fluidity. Got it.
What is perhaps most troubling is the sheer number of comments on Kara’s video supporting her insanity and her argument. A particularly enlightened follower:
Can’t argue with that!
Teri Perez, the mother of a transgender daughter wrote she was offended by Kara’s comments. Kara replied by missing the point entirely and apologizing for what is “happening” to Perez’ family.
Kara concludes, “I really believe that believing in vaccines is a mental disorder.” Strong words coming from a woman who believes she can determine whether a child is vaccinated based on their facial symmetry and who yells at strangers in the park about their life choices. Usually not a sign of the mentally sound.
