The Democrats response to the Wuhan virus has been terrifying.
Virtually everyone in the party from politicians to journalists has pushed for lockdowns and limiting Americans’ access to information.
Now one Trump official is being censored about the coronavirus for an unbelievable reason.
The pro-lockdown party is intent on making sure Americans live under the thumb of big government indefinitely.
Millions of Americans anxious to reclaim their lives are unable to do so because of petty tyrant Democrats around the country.
Worse yet, these tyrants are being supported by the so-called mainstream media and Big Tech.
Now White House health expert Scott Atlas is being censored for sharing information about the efficacy of masks.
Atlas had shared a tweet from Dr. Roger Koops of the American Institute of Economic Research regarding extensive research on mask-wearing, but Twitter deleted his post.
So Atlas emailed The Federalist to confirm his tweet was deleted and shared the information he had tried to post on Twitter.
His email read:
1) Cases exploded even with [mask] mandates: Los Angeles County, Miami-Dade County, Hawaii, Alabama, the Philippines, Japan, the United Kingdom, Spain, France, Israel.
2) Dr. Carl Heneghan, University of Oxford, director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine and editor in chief of British Medical Journal Evidence-Based Medicine: ‘It would appear that despite two decades of pandemic preparedness, there is considerable uncertainty as to the value of wearing masks.’
3) The WHO: ‘The widespread use of masks by healthy people in the community setting is not yet supported by high quality or direct scientific evidence and there are potential benefits and harms to consider.’
4) The CDC: ‘Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.’
I also cited an article giving detailed explanation of the reasons why masks might not prevent spread…
Atlas is correct that there is no high correlation between wearing masks and curbing the spread of the coronavirus. Social distancing and encouraging high-risk individuals to quarantine are regarded as more effective than face coverings.
But the powers-that-be at Twitter determined that a renowned doctor at Stanford University was spreading “misinformation.”
Something similar happened when Dr. Harvey Risch at the Yale School of Medicine said that hydroxychloroquine was a reasonably effective treatment for the coronavirus based on doctor testimonials.
Links to his statements were also blocked by Big Tech.
Perhaps even more insidious is the fact that any potentially good news about the virus is quashed by the pro-lockdown contingent.
It’s very clear there’s only one message allowed.
