Moke, a 7-month-old lowland gorilla, received the flu vaccine at the end of November, according to an update from primate keeper Melba Brown. Brown says that the vaccination was part of their usual "health care regimen" for gorillas.
"One day, flanked by both his parents, he turned around and hoisted that leg up, at which point the vaccine was successfully injected. He did not even flinch! True to his remarkable persona, Moke simply turned around and accepted a grape halve, as did Calaya and Baraka," Brown writes in the update.
Animals are known for being notoriously good at hiding pain; it's their instinct to avoid showing vulnerability. Surely Brown, an expert in wildlife, is aware of this fact. Just because Moke did not react in a way that a human would recognize as "pain," does not mean the shot didn't hurt him. Moreover, as an animal, Moke and other gorillas are not even able to consent to, nor truly understand, the process of vaccination.
At the time of Brown's reporting, Moke weighed just 12.6 pounds.
It also makes you wonder, if gorillas need flu shots, then why aren't the vaccine companies running around the world capturing all wild animals (elephants, whales, deer, zebra, wolves) and making sure they all get their flu shots? Furthermore, if flu shots are necessary for wild animals to survive, how did all these animals ever survive before the invention of human vaccines?
What the National Zoo's update on Moke's flu shot doesn't tell you is that flu vaccination is a highly controversial topic. While the mainstream media and other puppets of the vaccine industry, including the CDC, insist that flu vaccination is the best, most efficient way to prevent influenza, time and time again, we see that the flu vaccine for humans has an astronomical rate of failure and adverse events.
Natural News has repeatedly reported on the fraudulent and dangerous nature of the entire vaccine industry on many occasions, with founder Mike Adams recently declaring that the flu shot amounts to nothing more than "systemic healthcare fraud."
The heavy politicization of Moke's flu shot has nothing to do with the baby gorilla's well-being, and everything to do with advancing so-called public health initiatives. Vaccine propaganda is everywhere, especially now that reports are showing most adults in the United States have not gotten inoculated this season.
A title from The Chicago Tribune reads, "A shot to save grandma: If vaccination rates rise just 1 percentage point, 807 won't die from flu."
The Washington Post's piece on Moke is titled, "Gorilla, susceptible like us, to flu, gets his shot at National Zoo," -- another attempt at subtly urging readers to get their own shot.
Cute animals are another tool of propaganda experts: Beyond baby Moke's flu shot, there's the left-wing media's manipulation of "gay" penguins. Scientists have found that males will “pair” together out of loneliness and a lack of females within their colony. Every "homosexual" penguin pair studied has split up once more females become available -- including the famed Silo and Roy, who were kept together for six years, until a new female was introduced to their colony. But the media continues to use and abuse these animals to suit their needs. Whether it's forcing flu shots onto unsuspecting (and non-consenting!) animals, or making penguins "gay" to advance their own agenda, it's clear that the animals are the victims here.
Coincidentally enough, Moke's vaccination story has been circulating at around the same time a Las Vegas man lost his vision, became partially paralyzed and lost his ability to breathe without assistance after getting his own flu shot.
