Correct from the start despite government censorship
Bring a gun to a knife fight: Three well-known research doctors have now added their names to a lawsuit filed by two states that accuses the Biden administration of coordinating with major social media companies like Google and Twitter to censor all posts critical of administration COVID policies.
Drs. Jayanta (Jay) Bhattacharya, Martin Kulldorff and Aaron Kheriaty joined the lawsuit filed by the states of Missouri and Louisiana, alleging that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) worked with Big Tech companies to censor Americans discussing the pandemic. The doctors alleged they were censored on social media platforms for expressing views in opposition to the positions of the federal government, their representation, the New Civil Liberties Alliance (NCLA), said in a Tuesday press release.
Kheriaty was blackballed by his hospital and banned from seeing patients back in October ’21 because after looking the data he had decided to recommend his patients not get the jab.
Kulldorff, one of the world’s foremost experts on vaccines, was blacklisted from Twitter, Linkedin and the CDC in August ’21, also because he challenged the government mandates that required people to get the COVID shots.
Kulldorff and Bhattacharya were co-authors of the Great Barrington Declaration, which condemned the lockdowns and mandates and instead called for a more traditional focused policy for dealing with the Wuhan flu:
The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk.
All three doctors have been critical of the government’s panicked reaction to COVID, from the beginning, based on their well-qualified knowledge of such respiratory diseases and the past policies that had worked. Faced with that criticism, the Biden administration and the CDC worked with the big social media companies to get them to censor and blacklist these individuals, as well as anyone associated with them. According to the lawsuit:
Recently unearthed government records show that health officials at the CDC coordinated with Big Tech companies, including Google, Facebook and Twitter, to advise them on what kind of content to flag as misinformation on their sites. Those platforms either removed, suppressed or added warning labels to thousands of pieces of content that contradicted CDC guidance throughout the pandemic, a study found.
Legally, the situation is complicated. The government is forbidden from censoring, but private companies are supposedly free to do what they want. Google, Twitter, Facebook, and all the big tech media companies however have special tax benefits based on the premise that they are not editors picking and choosing content but utilities that allow all content. If it is proved in court they played favorites in league with the government (as the evidence now suggests), this lawsuit will have legs.
The big takeaway from this story however remains the courageous willingness of these three doctors to stand for what they saw as the truth, regardless of the consequences. They did not bow in fear, but fought back. And they have now consistently been proven correct, time after time after time. The lockdowns didn’t work, masks were useless, and the jab is ineffective and appears to cause serious medical problems, including heart failure and death.
When faced with choosing the truth versus political peer pressure, the right answer is always to go with the truth. To do otherwise is to fail ethically, scientifically, and personally.
