Government attempts at censoring public comments on social media have been in the news recently. But a little-known effort was also made to affect text messaging about Covid vaccines
I want to say this is shocking, but it’s not. What is shocking is my fellow liberal friends couldn’t care less about the censorship machine.
There are presently 225 deaths in the CDC’s VAERS database for Pfizer lot #en6201, the lot that killed my wife’s best friend. That is one lot of this unsafe, experimental and ineffective grift of a product. Our friend died 4/6/21. We reported it to VAERS almost immediately. By December of 2021 there were 90 deaths for that single lot. Today there are 225 deaths and 4000 adverse events for that ONE LOT! This morning I got a report from the FDA of some bad eye drops. Yesterday there was a product recalled over a non-fatal hep A outbreak. But here we are 2 years on since we reported the death of our friend to VAERS and not a peep from the parasites at the FDA and CDC.
Slavitt, Walensky and all the health officials and their degenerate partners at Meta and elsewhere should be in prison for stifling communications around the dangers of this poison. Every single vaccine injury and death that followed the early reports is on their hands. A public flogging is too good for them.
Excellent piece David. I greatly appreciate your work in this area. I would suggest you consider the actions and communications you are examining using an alternative framing - similar to one which we use to understand the great expansion of surveillance that took place in the early 2000s. One way of examining the actions by different govt officials to expand latitude and capacity to surveil Americans during the period just after 9/11 was that the panic and fear over the terrorist attack on 9/11 was exploited to get the surveillance (etc) capacity that various actors in the intel community had long desired. And from reading these communications, I think one interpretation worth considering is that the panic over covid and the expectations regarding the vaccines - made it possible to overcome existing norms regarding First Amendment protections. That is, part of what is going on is that the perceived urgency of vaccine uptake is being used to get around the barriers to expanding the state's capacity to surveil and suppress undesirable speech.
A Biden-defender friend said well the government wasn’t threatening the companies … of course there is an implicit threat when the government can harm private companies if they want. The First Amendment bans this type of pressure. Further , the Biden Administration acted against the law when it pushed mandates on private employers and the military (as the shots were experimental). And now people are sick and dead from the shots with no compensation to them or their families. Will anyone be punished? I can’t imagine that ever happening.
The only response a company should give when the government comes knocking and telling it to censor something is: "show me the court order."
Great journalism. Everyone should be alarmed by this!
David, I've been a big fan of your articles on Covid. Have you been able to obtain public records of communications withi Google on monitoring gmail accounts? Seems like a logical extension to investigate.
Pure and utter insanity. Thank you David for exposing this Black Mirror episode we all just lived through.
This is why I didn't move to private messaging apps when I was talking about CoVid. They were obviously going to try and monitor them. So I preferred to focus on a place where the problems were at least obvious.
Why was Facebook/Meta so comfortable with having the executive branch manage it?
