It’s all over the news: Renowned actor Robert DeNiro was once in support of the film VAXXED: from Cover-Up to Catastrophe, a controversial documentary which seeks to expose the discredited link between autism and vaccinations, but he swiftly pulled it from the Tribeca Film Festival upon consulting “the scientific community.”

In a statement, the father of an autistic child said:

“My intent in screening this film was to provide an opportunity for conversation around an issue that is deeply personal to me and my family. But after reviewing it over the past few days with the Tribeca film festival team and others from the scientific community, we do not believe it contributes to or furthers the discussion I had hoped for.

The Festival doesn’t seek to avoid or shy away from controversy. However, we have concerns with certain things in this film that we feel prevent us from presenting it in the Festival program. We have decided to remove it from our schedule.”

While the co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival defended his choice to pull the heavily anticipated documentary from the film line-up, many activists are not having the excuse.

After all, in the 40 years since the event has been active, there has never been an assault against a documentary film in the history of America such as this one. For this reason, many suspect there is far more going on than just DeNiro’s refusal to show the film he was once in support of – including Andrew Wakefield.

Wakefield, a former doctor and the director of VAXXED, had his license to practice medicine revoked in 1998 for publishing a paper in 1998 that claimed links between a vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) and autism. Because the study was found to contain numerous flaws, he was shamed by the British medical community.

He, however, is adamant that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have hidden evidence that would support his discredited claims. On the VAXXED website, a new statement reads:

“It is our understanding that persons from an organization affiliated with the festival have made unspecified allegations against the film – claims that we were given no opportunity to challenge or redress. We were denied due process.

We have just witnessed yet another example of the power of corporate interests censoring free speech, art, and truth.

Tribeca’s action will not succeed in denying the world access to the truth behind the film Vaxxed.”

DeNiro’s quick 180 in denying the film have led many to believe that the successful actor is under a threat to deny the public the opportunity to view the controversial film and make up their own decision about vaccinations.

According to Natural News:

“Robert De Niro and his wife spoke directly with y for approximately one hour on Friday, during which De Niro was given numerous assurances by Congressman Posey that the CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, really did confess to taking part in amassive scientific fraud to conceal the links between vaccines and autism. It was based in part on this assurance that De Niro originally backed the film’s screening at Tribeca.

But hours later, somebody got to De Niro. Somebody powerful and connected whom we believe threatened Robert De Niro into silence. This mysterious conversation has not been revealed. De Niro has not released the names of those from the “scientific community” who threatened him, nor have the VAXXED filmmakers been offered any ability to respond to whatever accusations may have been falsely leveled against the film.”

While the audience must take author Mike Adams’ word that the phone call did, in fact, take place, it’s a startling accusation, nonetheless.

Who Is Threatening DeNiro? 

If spectators’ theories are correct, Robert DeNiro was paid off or threatened by the ‘vaccine mafia’. According to Natural News, this is a powerful group (oftentimes employed by corporations that turn great profit subduing the population with vaccinations and pharmaceutical drugs) that silence people willing to speak out against the monopoly on scientific truth.

Many believe that in order to silence this film, the individuals behind such treachery would stop at nothing – including threatening De Niro with destroying his professional career or possibly his life or family.

With dozens of alternative doctors dead under mysterious circumstances, one does need to keep an open mind about the possibility. After all, if true, the discredited link between autism and vaccinations would change the face of modern-day medicine. Of course, a paradigm shift of this nature is exactly what’s needed; more people presently die from pharmaceutical drugs and lifestyle-related illnesses than herbal remedies, marijuana, and/or diet-related therapies.

In fact, the CDC estimates that at least 40% of the five most common modern-day afflictions could be prevented through dietary and lifestyle changes; could a strong immune system really be a better solution than injecting someone with strains of viruses, heavy metals, and other foreign substances?

The documentary VAAXED seeks to expose parallels between vaccinations and increasingly common health concerns, but is being censored by ‘vaccination totalitarians’ who have never even seen the film.

Simply put, the film is dangerous because it is credible, according to Adams, therefore, is being attacked because it threatens “to crumble the great scientific Berlin Wall of the vaccine industry… an industry built almost entirely on lies, cover-ups, censorship and systematic intimidation.”

While there are various petitions circulating to get the film re-accepted into the Tribeca Film Festival, you don’t need to wait for authorities’ approval to learn more.
