Davis is a surname I know well – Diane Davis, an Autistic enemy from Chesapeake in the US. This one’s name is Sean – an Australian living in the Sydney suburb of Canterbury, and from the top shelf of deluded. Refuses to listen to reason and eventually poor Melanie Jewell decided enough (and showed some wonderful old Aussie humour making a mockery of her young age by comparison certainly to me!) and disengaged. I don’t blame her given what I’ve read! Not to mention the fact that he is a registered practitioner in Chinese medicine! I doubt the Chinese would be very happy at his anti vaccine stance.
It would take too long to go through everything screenshot by screenshot, but the bottom line is that Davis is adamant that Glazo Smith Kline’s massive fine for promoting Paxil – an anti depressant – for use in pregnant women and children, despite it being made clear that this should not be done by any competent doctor or psychiatrist (mainly the latter of course). Now what GSK did was wrong – even Melanie said that. But Davis insisted that it was a symptom of a wider “fraud” without a single shred of proof!!
I mean for instance;
Christine McKewen was onto this like a shot, rightly pointing out that Fluvax was NOT banned! It was restricted to those over the age of five. Melanie also jumped on this adding that the Western Australian batch was a bad batch. And;
Melanie pointed out that GSK was not in the habit of that, but would Davis listen?
Oh that is conspiracy BS at it’s finest. Particularly the remark about Murdoch for crying out loud! Consistently dodge practices? You idiot – if that was true, the FDA in the US and the TGA in Australia (at least) WOULD HAVE SHUT THEM DOWN! FACT! Here’s the reality – as Melanie pointed out. Paxil is okay when used correctly. Just like vaccines need to be used correctly also (case in point: Fluvax). Melanie also pointed out that Davis was seeking to have the items banned entirely – which when you consider not only Davis’ current practic, but also the fact that Davis is a supporter of marijuana being the solution to every other medical problem and wanting it totally legalised……Need I say more? This idiot must already be smoking it and frying his brain!
I did like Melanie’s analogy of banning cars because of people not knowing how to drive the things! But again Davis persisted in putting GSK’s stupid mistake over as a symptom of a bigger problem. Without proof as I said! Davis even tried to justify it by claiming that if an individual had committed this mistake he or she would have been committed for manslaughter for birth defects, heart failure and suicide. Actually – putting my legal hat on, no they wouldn’t have. Why? Because advertising (which is what GSK was fined for – false ads that is) can be ignored. There is a choice in it. If there was no choice then there would be a possible case, but only then if a death actually occurred and it could be proven 100 percent that it was caused by the medication and the person who administered it would be charged.
Melanie pointed out that it was a single mistake that GSK learned their lesson over. But Davis wouldn’t let it go;
Look at this paranoid junk! Someone call this idiot a WAAAmbulance!
It went on like that, but like I said it would take too long to go through all of it. Needless to say, Melanie pulled the pin when it became obvious Davis wasn’t prepared to learn from his own mistakes. And she referenced Noeline Brown from the Naked Vicar Show when telling Davis to “Piss orf”! Old Aussie humour at it’s finest!
But even after that Davis wouldn’t let go. He is still demanding a debate over the issues, thinking he knows it all. He doesn’t and Steve Pemberton’s reference to the Dunning Kruger Effect was right on the money. Christine McKewen pointed out the lack of logic in his thinking – but of course it had no effect. And it was proven beyond a doubt when he name checked the careless Cochrane Collaboration (I have previously had a crack at this after Tristan Wells used it as evidence) as well as quack site Chaotic Pharmacology.
Davis, you had better back off. I know you want GSK and all the other manufacturers shut down because you believe in the healing properties of your own Chinese medicine (COI anyone?) and marijuana. In the case of the latter it’s still too early and research and development still needs to be done. It is still a dangerous drug, particularly when smoked. It makes Davis a hypocrite because as it stands he is promoting a product in almost the same way as GSK was promoting Paxil and got fined for it. I hope Davis has a lot of money when he is fined for gross stupidity.
And as a side note – before Davis even got started, he blocked the AAAV Facebook page. It didn’t work, dummy! So not only is he stupid he’s a coward as well, as Melanie pointed out in her closing tirade at him that was richly deserved. Not only that, the thread that I got this material from has been deleted. From there maybe, but not here!
His local community will be informed of this dangerous and deluded man – if they aren’t aware of him already of course! And I’ll bet they are to be honest.
