I’ve got to get something off my chest, so buckle up for an overdue rant.
I can’t begin to describe the disdain and contempt I have for highly-credentialed MD’s with large platforms who are suddenly jumping on the Team Reality about COVID-19.
If we are getting out of this mess it won’t be due to MDs. They’ve abdicated their roles because most no longer are in practice for themselves and must rely on CMS [Medicare] dollars. Whoever pays the salary makes the rules.
It’s not only “highly-credentialed MD’s” who deserve disdain and contempt.
Steve Kirsch’ list of top COVID-19 misinformation spreaders who are killing people includes:
- President Joe Biden
- DCD Director Rochelle Walensky
- NIAID Director Anthony Fauci
- U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy
- FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock
- CDC vaccine expert Tom Shimabukuro
- CDC VAERS expert John Su
- California Governor Gavin Newsom
It’s not just a list. Steve tells you why they made the cut. See also his list of top corporate misinformation spreaders, if you dare. The article is a concise summary of who’s to blame for the mismanagement of this pandemic. (Or was it managed precisely how our overlords wanted it?)
The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors. These threat actors seek to exacerbate societal friction to sow discord and undermine public trust in government institutions to encourage unrest, which could potentially inspire acts of violence. Mass casualty attacks and other acts of targeted violence conducted by lone offenders and small groups acting in furtherance of ideological beliefs and/or personal grievances pose an ongoing threat to the nation. While the conditions underlying the heightened threat landscape have not significantly changed over the last year, the convergence of the following factors has increased the volatility, unpredictability, and complexity of the threat environment: (1) the proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions; (2) continued calls for violence directed at U.S. critical infrastructure; soft targets and mass gatherings; faith-based institutions, such as churches, synagogues, and mosques; institutions of higher education; racial and religious minorities; government facilities and personnel, including law enforcement and the military; the media; and perceived ideological opponents; and (3) calls by foreign terrorist organizations for attacks on the United States based on recent events.
#1 among factors contributing to heightened threat risk:
The proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions:
- For example, there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19. Grievances associated with these themes inspired violent extremist attacks during 2021. [Huh?]
Thank God the threat expires at 1400 hrs June 7, 2022. How will I ever sleep at night until then.
Never forget, comrades, that our governments and gov’t institutions can do no wrong. So don’t criticize them or you may be visited by the FBI. Or worse.
