The Shadow State: Twitter Suspends Commentator for Criticizing Vaccine Policies

Twitter LogoI recently discussed how the Biden Administration was actively encouraging corporations to limit speech and impose vaccine mandates as a type of shadow state. Rather than take such actions directly ( and face both legal and political challenges), the Administration is relying on its close alliance with Big Tech and other companies to carry out such tasks. That surrogate relationship is particularly clear in the expanding censorship program carried out by Twitter, Facebook and other companies. Twitter’s action against political commentator Dave Rubin is an example of how these companies are now dispensing with any pretense in actively barring criticism of government policies and viewpoints.

 

Rubin was locked out under the common “misinformation” claim by Twitter. However, his tweet was an opinion based on demonstrably true facts. One can certainly disagree with the conclusion but this is an example of core political speech being curtailed by a company with a long history of biased censorship, including the barring of discussions involving Hunter Biden’s laptop before the election.  With a new election looming, these companies appear to be ramping up their censorship efforts.

In his tweet, Rubin stated:

“They want a federal vaccine mandate for vaccines which are clearly not working as promised just weeks ago. People are getting and transmitting Covid despite vax. Plus now they’re prepping us for booster shots. A sane society would take a pause. We do not live in a sane society.”

Even President Biden admitted yesterday that he was wrong weeks ago when he assured people that if they took the vaccine, they would not be at risk for the variants and could dispense with their masks. There are breakthrough cases that have taken many officials by surprise. It is also true that there is now talk of likely booster shots.

Rubin takes those facts and adds his opinion that we should “take a pause.” Twitter declared that to be a violation of its policy “on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”

As always, Twitter simply refuses to explain its censorship decision beyond these generalized, categorical statements. It is not clear if Twitter is calling these facts misinformation or objecting to Rubin’s opinion about a pause. It does not matter. Twitter does not like his viewpoint and does not want others to read it or discuss it.

This is precisely what Democratic leaders pressed Twitter to do in past hearings. As previously discussed the hearing with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey who followed up his apology for censoring the Hunter Biden story but pledging more censorship. One of the most chilling moments came from Delaware Senator Chris Coons who demonstrated the very essence of the “slippery slope” danger.

Dorsey: Well, misleading information, as you are aware, is a large problem. It’s hard to define it completely and cohesively. We wanted to scope our approach to start to focus on the highest severity of harm. We focused on three areas, manipulated media, which you mentioned, civic integrity around the election, specifically in public health, specifically around COVID. We wanted to make sure that our resources that we  have the greatest impact on where we believe the greatest severity of harm is going to be. Our policies are living documents. They will evolve. We will add to them, but we thought it important that we focus our energies and prioritize the work as much as we could.

Coons: Well, Mr. Dorsey, I’ll close with this. I cannot think of a greater harm than climate change, which is transforming literally our planet and causing harm to our entire world. I think we’re experiencing significant harm as we speak. I recognize the pandemic and misinformation about COVID-19, manipulated media also cause harm, but I’d urge you to reconsider that because helping to disseminate climate denialism, in my view, further facilitates and accelerates one of the greatest existential threats to our world. So thank you to both of our witnesses.

Notably, Dorsey starts with the same argument made by free speech advocates: “Well, misleading information, as you are aware, is a large problem. It’s hard to define it completely and cohesively.” However, instead of then raising concerns over censoring views and comments on the basis for such an amorphous category, Coons pressed for an expansion of the categories of censored material to prevent people from sharing any views that he considers “climate denialism”

There is, of course, a wide array of views that different people or different groups would declare “harmful.” Indeed, Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal seemed to take the opposite meaning from Twitter admitting that it was wrong to censor the Biden story. Blumenthal said that he was “concerned that both of your companies are, in fact, backsliding or retrenching, that you are failing to take action against dangerous disinformation.” Accordingly, he demanded an answer to this question:

“Will you commit to the same kind of robust content modification playbook in this coming election, including fact checking, labeling, reducing the spread of misinformation, and other steps, even for politicians in the runoff elections ahead?”

“Robust content modification” has a certain Orwellian feel to it. It is not content modification. It is censorship.

The Rubin controversy captures this raw and biased censorship by Twitter and the other Big Tech companies. They do not want people to read such dissenting views so they declare them to be misinformation and ban the poster. It also shows how such censorship becomes insatiable and expansive with time. Once you give censors the opportunity to silence others, history shows that the desire for greater and greater censorship builds inexorably. We now have the largest censorship system outside of China and it is entirely run by private companies closely aligned with one party.

As Orwell wrote in 1984:

“And when memory failed and written records were falsified—when that happened, the claim of the Party to have improved the conditions of human life had got to be accepted, because there did not exist, and never again could exist, any standard against which it could be tested.”

  1. So what is the real world impact (hospitalization/death) of the Delta variant?

    And Dr. Fauci issued a carefully worded statement that included the words “greatest threat” in discussing the delta variant:

    “The Delta variant is currently the greatest threat in the U.S. to our attempt to eliminate COVID-19,”

    Pay close attention to the care with which Fauci specified that “our attempt to eliminate COVID-19” was what was threatened. The delta variant is even more transmissible than earlier versions of the virus, but the other side of that coin is that it is weaker, less lethal. All those people driving around with “Darwin” fishes with legs displayed on the bumpers should be able to follow the evolutionary logic. The virus, like all life forms, wants to reproduce to survive. But if it kills off its hosts, it can’t do so. That’s why as viruses mutate, they become less lethal and more transmissible.

    By specifying that the object is “our attempt to eliminate COVID-19,” Fauci is positing an impossible goal. We haven’t eliminated the common cold or any of the flu variants that plague us every year. The best we can hope to do is minimize their impact as they burn themselves out. Fauci knows that the delta variant is less lethal than the first viruses, so he highlights its transmissibility as the “greatest threat” to an unrealistic goal of complete elimination. The headlines all feature the scary words “greatest threat” with no attention to the diminished lethality. In fact, greater transmissibility of a milder variant helps natural herd immunity, rendering potential hosts nearly immune to further viral infections.

    1. Covid is proving to be an “endemic virus,” yet Facui, et al, continue to intentionally deceive the American public.

      Why?

      1. “It is, indeed, quite unbelievable that some advising experts pretend that although we won’t achieve herd immunity, we will still be able to exchange the pandemic for an endemic situation. When does that happen? The answer is: never. Neither disappointing vaccine coverage rates nor diminished virus neutralization rates should be blamed for failure of these vaccines to enable herd immunity. From their very first conceptualization, it should have been very clear that these ‘S-based’ Covid-19 vaccines are completely inadequate for generating herd immunity in a population, regardless of the magnitude of Ab titers induced or the rate of vaccine coverage. Why is this? Let’s first have a closer look at the definition of ‘herd immunity’….

        https://www.geertvandenbossche.org/post/not-covid-19-vaccine-mediated-but-naturally-acquired-immunity-enables-herd-immunity

      2. Why?

        Well, look what has happened over the last 18 months. It savaged our economy. It’s killed thousands of people that were elderly and/or had chronic health issues that represented to the eugenicist Left a particular economic and health burden. It devastated the trajectory of a highly effective presidency and opened up a general election for massive fraud. It’s put into power the most destructive administration this country has ever seen. And finally and probably most importantly, the Democrats have pushed all their chips in on the Obama pledge to fundamentally transform this country, and the only way they will win that bet is to have another pandemic election in 2022.

        The possibility for Covid to become endemic was acknowledged as early as May 13, 2020, by Executive Director for the WHO Health Emergencies Program, Dr Michael Ryan [at 1.02.06]:

        I think it’s important to put this on the table: this virus may just become another endemic virus in our communities. And this virus may never go away. HIV has not gone away, but we’ve come to terms with the virus, and we have found the therapies and we have found the prevention methods, and people don’t feel as scared as they did before. And we’re offering life — long, healthy life — to people with HIV. And I’m not comparing the two diseases, but I think it is important that we be realistic. And I don’t think anyone can predict when or if this disease will disappear.

        His response illustrates that a great part of a disease becoming ‘endemic’ requires society coming to terms with it. The sooner we recognize Covid as endemic, the sooner we can overcome this unfettered hysteria.[emphasis mine.]
        https://www.aier.org/article/what-does-it-mean-for-a-virus-to-become-endemic/

      3. Just a thought for the weekend. Do we know how many in China died of Covid? Why would China manufacture a virus designed to kill the elderly and chronically ill? Consider China’s one child policy for a moment. They have an aging population that they don’t have enough young and healthy people to support them. Is it outside the realm of possibility that the CCP was “contracted” to produce this virus for the global eugenicists?

        Nah, that’s crazy talk.

        Have a great weekend! 🙂

    2. “. . . our attempt to *eliminate* COVID-19 . . .” (Fauci, emphasis addes)

      But of course. A never-ending “disaster” and “emergency” — so that he gets never-ending, and undeserved, attention and money. And so that his fellow tyrants have a never-ending rationalization to demand “wider powers” and obedience.

      1. Fauci has been a government policy version of a Covid variant. He doesn’t want to kill his host. So he’s lied, misled and mutated his recommendations to the point the messaging is not being trusted. Fauci and the political tyrants are the real endemic disease on this country.

        If you think about it, Fauci and Covid are the gain of function of evil regimes.

        1. So here’s one thing that’s amazing about this.

          Tyrants need disasters and emergencies. And when there aren’t enough genuine ones, they manufacture them. That power-luster’s strategy is ancient and obvious.

          Do the “authorities” think that we don’t know about that strategy? That we’ll remain quiet? That there is sufficient ignorance about history and about political philosophy, so that an alarm won’t be raised? That Americans are too passive to object? That they have a compliant media, and academic support — so they’re good to go?

  2. “vaccinated individuals infected with delta may be able to transmit the virus as easily as those who are unvaccinated. Vaccinated people infected with delta have measurable viral loads similar to those who are unvaccinated and infected with the variant.” – WaPo

    1. So the vaccines are not working as “vaccines” are supposed to work?

      And the Biden folks are blaming the unvaccinated?

      And calling for forced mandatory vaccinations of the federal government and military as part of the solution?

      While vaccinated folks are still getting sick with covid and spreading the virus even though vaccinated?

      And the vaccinated folks are now angry and bitter and, following President Unity’s lead, also blaming the unvaccinated?

      What a mess of confusing public health “mixed messaging” coming from Biden and his team.

        1. After a staffer gives Joe Biden a note saying, “there’s something on your chin,” Biden wipes his chin.

          Then appears to put whatever was on his chin in his mouth?

      1. The vaccines ARE working, but even the fully-vaccinated can carry the virus in their nasal passages and can spread it. If someone who is fully-vaccinated contracts COVID, they will not be sick enough to require hospitalization or die. 99% of those hospitalized with COVID are unvaccinated, and 100% of those who are dying are unvaccinated. The vaccines were never touted as being 100% effective.

        There is no “mixed messaging”, but that won’t stop Fox from trying to confuse the issue to try to make Biden look bad. The science hasn’t changed, but the virus has. When the mask mandate was lifted back in May, Delta was not the dominant strain. Thanks to spreading fear and lies about the vaccine, Delta is now the dominant strain, and it is killing and sickening people because it is more virulent and lethal than the Alpha version that used to be dominant. Those who keep spreading lies and fear about the vaccine are to blame.

        1. “The science hasn’t changed, but the virus has.”

          That’s what viruses do, they mutate over and over and over.

          —————–
          “Delta is now the dominant strain, and it is killing and sickening people because it is more virulent and lethal than the Alpha version.”

          How do we know? How does the PCR test distinguish the Alpha from Delta versus the Flu?

          Where is the “science” that shows “Delta strain” is more “lethal”?

          1. Where is the “science” and “data” that proves there is a “Delta variant”?

            And again, how do we determine Alpha from Delta in the PCR testing?

        2. Delta is more infections and 6x more lethal in fully vaccinated individuals per NHS. A vaccine with long-term effects, an inadequate safety profile, that poses a higher risk in the general population vs the conditional risk in the 80% “fat is beautiful”, “healthy at any weight”, metabolically compromised cases correlated but not (exclusive with age. An emergency-use measure distributed to the general population in a depraved experiment a la planned parent/hood. This has the potential to match Fentanyl-induced progressive conditions and viability.

        3. In the UK, about 50% of the recent hospitalisations and deaths have been of vaccinated people. Israel also has relatively high percentages. This is not to say that the vaccines are not helping. The absolute numbers of hospitalisations and deaths are lower than they otherwise likely would be. And given that a substantial majority of the relevant populations in both countries have been vaccinated, it is a sign that the vaccines are helping that a substantial majority of hospitalisations and deaths are not among the vaccinated. But the virus is here to stay unless and until it evolves in a benign way. The vaccines help reduce its impact but they will not “eliminate” it. It is low risk to most people, especially the young, and if anyone believes the vaccine will be beneficial to them they can take it.

          There are many powerful people with political, financial and ideological interests in maintaining a state of fear. That is the only basis I can see for the changes we are now seeing.

        4. Forty nine fully vaccinated people died from covid in NJ, a 33 year old fully vaccinated woman in Louisiana just died of covid. Check out the numbers in Israel and the UK as well. Maybe it’s close to 100% but close doesn’t count.

        5. Laughing my a** off!! Natacha says
          ” ….won’t stop Fox from trying to….make Biden look bad…..”

          That’s the ONLY thing that Biden can do all by himself! LOL

  3. Here’s the Left’s MO on all things Covid — on the variants, masks, school children, decrees, immigrants, etc., etc:

    Wishing makes it so.

  4. Jonathan: It seems there is no one who appears on Fox you will not defend. Now it’s Dave Rubin, a right-wing commentator, who has called progressivism a “mental disorder”. Rubin hosts “The Rubin Report” on BlazeTV, a conservative subscription service run by Glenn Beck, a purveyor of conspiracy theories. Rubin provides a forum for conspiracy theorists and white supremacists. On his show on 7/16 (“Govt. Doesn’t Want Covid to End”) Rubin hosted a roundtable discussing the re-imposition of face masks around the country. Rubin lives in SoCal and was livid by the decision to re-impose masks. He called local health officials “frauds” and “buffoons”. “I’m not wearing a mask anymore, period!”, Rubin said. Rubin further claimed, falsely, that there is “no science” behind the new mask requirement. Of course Rubin did not invite to the show an actual scientist or or public health official that might have explained the “science”. It doesn’t look like Rubin will be eating out anytime soon in SoCal, visiting his doctor and will have to order his groceries to be delivered. I suppose that’s a small price to pay for being anti-science and a committed anti-masker.

    Back in May the CDC eased mask guidelines for those fully vaccinated. That was, of course, BEFORE the onset of the Delta variant that is much more virulent, much more transmiissible. Now 90% of those infected from the Delta variant are unvaccinated and there have been cases of breakthrough infections among people already vaccinated. As the virus has evolved so too have the CDC guidelines. That’s why the health professionals say it is important that masks be worn in indoor settings, even by the fully vaccinated, to help prevent transmission. And that’s why LA County and other communities across the country have re-instated the mask requirement. All the former and current surgeon generals agree.

    But you say Rubin should not be suspended from Twitter because his “opinion [was] based on demonstrably true facts”. Now there are facts and there are opinions. There are no “true” facts. You and Rubin are peddling misinformation about vaccines. The vaccines have proved effective in stopping the spread of the virus. The Delta variant has changed everything. But if you are fully vaccinated the medical data indicates that if you have a breakthrough Delta variant infection you are less likely to become seriously ill and even less likely to die. Almost all those infected and die from the Delta variant are unvaccinated. That’s why the CDC is now saying wearing a mask in indoor settings, especially if you are among those who are unvaccinated, is the best protection against transmission. That’s the data and the science. There is some discussion at the CDC about booster shots because we do not know the long term protection from the current vaccines. Every fall millions of Americans get their booster flu shot to protect against the current flu strain. How is that different form getting a coronavirus booster shot if one is recommended?

    Rubin says “we do not live in a sane society”. That’s true only because Rubin, and you, are spreading insane misinformation about mask wearing and the vaccines.

    1. “. . . the Delta variant that is much more virulent . . .”

      And the *scientific* evidence for that is . . .?

    2. ” . . . there is ‘no science’ behind the new mask requirement.”

      Now’s your chance to publicize that *scientific* study that supports a new mask mandate. Not some “scientist” or public health official issuing a decree — but an actual, bona fide scientific study.

      I’d love to see it. I’d also love to see a little green man playing solitaire on Mars. But there isn’t one of those, either.

      1. Sam,

        “ Now’s your chance to publicize that *scientific* study that supports a new mask mandate. Not some “scientist” or public health official issuing a decree — but an actual, bona fide scientific study.”

        “ Human Studies of Masking and SARS-CoV-2 Transmission”

        “ At least ten studies have confirmed the benefit of universal masking in community level analyses: in a unified hospital system,42 a German city,43 two U.S. states,44, 45 a panel of 15 U.S. states and Washington, D.C.,46, 47 as well as both Canada48 and the U.S. 49-51 nationally. Each analysis demonstrated that, following directives from organizational and political leadership for universal masking, new infections fell significantly. Two of these studies46, 47 and an additional analysis of data from 200 countries that included the U.S.51 also demonstrated reductions in mortality. Another 10-site study showed reductions in hospitalization growth rates following mask mandate implementation 49. A separate series of cross-sectional surveys in the U.S. suggested that a 10% increase in self-reported mask wearing tripled the likelihood of stopping community transmission.53 An economic analysis using U.S. data found that, given these effects, increasing universal masking by 15% could prevent the need for lockdowns and reduce associated losses of up to $1 trillion or about 5% of gross domestic product.47

        Two studies have been improperly characterized by some sources as showing that surgical or cloth masks offer no benefit. A community-based randomized control trial in Denmark during 2020 assessed whether the use of surgical masks reduced the SARS-CoV-2 infection rate among wearers (personal protection) by more than 50%. Findings were inconclusive,54 most likely because the actual reduction in infections was lower.”

        https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/science/science-briefs/masking-science-sars-cov2.html

        Here you go Sam. All you have to do is read.

        1. Nice try. But some people can actually read (and think).

          The claim from the health “authorities” and the Biden administration is as follows:

          Mask mandates for *all vaccinated* people, because of the spread of the *Delta* variants.

          To the best of my knowledge, there is *no* scientific study that even addresses those specific factors. (The studies you cited don’t do so.) Thus there is *no* science behind the new mask mandates — contrary to the (bogus) claims made by the administration and some health care “experts.”

  5. Turley: you’ve become almost as bad as Hannity at spinning the truth. You claim: “Even President Biden admitted yesterday that he was wrong weeks ago when he assured people that if they took the vaccine, they would not be at risk for the variants and could dispense with their masks. There are breakthrough cases that have taken many officials by surprise. It is also true that there is now talk of likely booster shots.”

    In May, which is when Biden made the statement to which you refer, the more-virulent and deadly DELTA STRAIN WAS NOT THE DOMINANT STRAIN. Now, Delta IS the dominant strain. The New York Post piece makes clear that Biden did NOT admit he was lying or was wrong, and that the statement he made was true when he made it, and was based on science. So, another purpose in your little devious argument is to try to make it sound like your fellow Fox employee Doocey caught Biden lying. I’ll say it one more time: THE SCIENCE HASN’T CHANGED–THE VIRUS HAS CHANGED, AND DELTA, WHICH IS MORE VIRULENT AND DEADLY, IS NOW THE DOMINANT STRAIN. Because it is now the dominant strain, and because the Trump-loving morons who refuse to get vaccinated are now causing it to spread, overwhelming hospitals and sickening Americans, everyone, including the fully-vaccinated, needs to wear a mask and return to social-distancing measures.

    If we don’t get COVID under control soon, which is still possible, the economy will once again falter, children will not be able to have in-person classroom learning, and critically-ill patients will once again overwhelm our hospitals. The numbers are already stunning and concerning. Trump and the Republicans, as well as the alt-right media, of which Turley is a part, bears much of the blame for encouraging stubborn and stupid people to continue refusing the vaccine, encouraging fear and distrust, and putting a political motive behind recommendations for vaccines and removal of social media posts that continue to spread fear of vaccination based on lies. Today’s little trash piece tries to make the case that there’s validity to Rubin’s claim: “They want a federal vaccine mandate for vaccines which are clearly not working as promised just weeks ago. People are getting and transmitting Covid despite vax. Plus now they’re prepping us for booster shots. A sane society would take a pause. We do not live in a sane society.” This is just plain stupid, and noting but fodder for ignorant people. It is untrue, which is why it was taken down.

    I’ll say it again THE VACCINES ARE WORKING; THE SCIENCE IS CORRECT; THE VIRUS HAS MUTATED TO A MORE DANGEROUS AND MORE EASILY-TRANSMITTED FORM. The reason is stubborn, paranoid and ignorant people who refuse vaccination, and their stupidity and refusal to be vaccinated will eventually hurt us all, including our economy.

    Also, Turley tries to make the case that there is a conspiracy between the Biden Administration and Big Tech, claiming that Big Tech is a surrogate for Biden administration policies. There is no such conspiracy. All this does is provide affirmation to the anti-vaxxers that their “truth” is vallid.

    1. “. . . the more-virulent and deadly DELTA STRAIN . . ”

      The *scientific* evidence for that is . . .?

      (I predict crickets.)

      1. How about the CDC, that is tracking and relying on testing of all Covid-positive cases all over the country? How about the health commissioners in all 50 states? Do you believe them, or Hannity?

        1. ‘You’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.’ President Biden said this *last week* at his CNN town hall.

          Hannity is more trustworthy than anyone in the Biden admin at this point.

          1. “ Hannity is more trustworthy than anyone in the Biden admin at this point.”

            If that’s the case then you should trust Hannity’s plea to vaccinate. He’s actually agreeing with Biden that vaccines are safe and effective.

            Natacha is right, the only reason why we are having this now unfolding crisis is only because trump loving supporters are spreading it. They are dragging down everyone else’s freedoms and liberty.

            1. ” . . . the only reason why we are having this now unfolding crisis is because trump loving supporters are spreading it.”

              How many times are you going to lie about the same issue?

              Blacks and Latinos have, by far, the greatest rate of unvaccinated individuals. Both groups are overwhelmingly democrats.

        2. When will the CDC and health commissioners recommend closing the southern border from the influx of covid-infected migratnts being dispersed all throughout the country?

          1. “ When will the CDC and health commissioners recommend closing the southern border from the influx of covid-infected migratnts being dispersed all throughout the country?”

            Well at least the Canadians are actively keeping filthy covid infested Americans from entering Canada. Mostly Trump supporters it seems.

            1. There is absolutely no evidence that the un-vaxed individuals are Trump supporters other than the left telling you that… Amazing how some people have lost the ability to think for themselves or never actually had that ability…

        3. Try to stay focused on the issue.

          You claim (as others do), falsely, that the Delta strains are more “virulent” and “deadly” (than the previous strains).

          Where is the scientific evidence for *that* claim?

          1. That’s what I was looking for yesterday when I came across that video. The variants are our endemic future with this disease. Just like with the flu season, we’ll have Covid shots to lessen the seasonal strains impact.

            The real concern should be the gain of disfunction these government tyrants have learned can be exploited.

      2. Sam, here is one study,

        https://spiral.imperial.ac.uk/handle/10044/1/89629

        Here’s the CDC’s own discoveries of what delta is capable of.

        “ The CDC described Delta as more transmissible than the common cold and influenza, as well as the viruses that cause Ebola, smallpox, MERS, and SARS, Ebola—and called it as contagious as chickenpox in an internal document, a copy of which was obtained by and reported on in The New York Times. The highest spread of cases and severe outcomes is happening in places with low vaccination rates, and virtually all hospitalizations and deaths have been among the unvaccinated, the CDC says.”

        https://www.yalemedicine.org/news/5-things-to-know-delta-variant-covid

        1. “ The CDC described Delta as more transmissible . . .”

          Good lord. Some of you have a hard time focusing on your own claims.

          The (false) claim that you and others keep spouting is that the Delta strains are more virulent and more deadly than the prior strains. (And “transmissible” does *not* equal “virulent” or deadly.)

          Where’s the scientific evidence for the *specific* claim about virulence and lethality?

        1. Show me where in that study it proves that the Delta strains are more *virulent* and more “deadly” than the prior strains. (Good luck with that.)

          Incidentally, if you believe anything — especially anything related to Covid — that comes out of communist China, then you are a dupe.

    2. “I’ll say it again THE VACCINES ARE WORKING; THE SCIENCE IS CORRECT; THE VIRUS HAS MUTATED TO A MORE DANGEROUS AND MORE EASILY-TRANSMITTED FORM. The reason is stubborn, paranoid and ignorant people who refuse vaccination…”

      Bzzzt. Wrong again.

      1. Natacha is right. 99% of all new covid cases are from unvaccinated individuals. It’s the ignorant and the gullible who are taking everyone else’s freedom and economic security.

      2. It’s actually true,

        https://www.medpagetoday.com/special-reports/exclusives/93717

        “ Ultimately, they found that the viral load for the first positive test was 1,260 times higher for Delta compared with the variant in the initial wave of infections — hence, the “1,000 times” higher estimate going around social and other media.”

        “ This all suggests a faster replication rate, a reduced incubation period, and greater viral shedding — all factors that contribute to Delta’s increased infectiousness and transmissibility, said Angela Rasmussen, PhD, of the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada, in a twitter thread.

        “If people are shedding 1000X more virus, the probability that a close contact will be exposed to an infectious dose is much higher,” Rasmussen tweeted. “If people become contagious more quickly after exposure, they can have more opportunity to infect others.”

        Vaccine mandates are coming, and the only reason they are is because trump loving morons are spreading it to all the rest. It is only a matter of time before employers will require all of their employees to be vaccinated or lose their jobs.

    3. Do you wonder why the US Postal Workers Union – mostly Democrats who endorsed Biden’s election — are refusing forced vaccination and opposing Biden’s mandatory vaccine push for federal workers?

      Do you wonder why the “scientists” in charge are ignoring natural immunity and pushing a singular solution called “mass vaccination”?

      Do you think there are a lot of “Trump supporters” in New York City where Diblasio is offering $100 cash bribes to get more people vaxxed?

      Do you know what ADE and immune escape are?

      1. “Do you wonder why the “scientists” in charge are ignoring natural immunity . . .”

        And now, out of political expediency, ignoring herd immunity — which the U.S. has already reached.

      2. “ Do you wonder why the “scientists” in charge are ignoring natural immunity and pushing a singular solution called “mass vaccination”?”

        Natural immunity is useless against a new variant. The delta variant is now the dominant strain circulating around. Those with natural immunity are only immune to the original strain AND that immune is short lived. That’s why you’re seeing only the unvaccinated getting sick again AFTER being sick with the original strain. Those who have been vaccinated have greater protection from serious sickness and hospitalizations than the unvaccinated.

        The new strain is more aggressive and more likely to send you to the hospital.

        Because the elderly have been vaccinated it is now the younger and ignorant who are going to be dying at the greatest numbers.

        1. “Natural immunity is useless against a new variant.”

          The scientific evidence for that is . . .?

          The Left is like a spoiled child who keeps throwing mud against a wall, hoping that something will stick.

          Incidentally, the actual *science* proves the exact opposite of your absurd claim. (Look it up yourself.)

        2. “Natural immunity is useless against a new variant.”

          I believe the opposite is true. Natural immunity is proving to be broad, durable and enduring while vaccines may be less effective at countering the newer variants compared to natural infection. Which is why we are seeing breakthrough infections in fully vaccinated people who are also spreading the virus.

          My understanding is the data show NO person with natural immunity has gotten Covid twice, but fully vaccinated people have.

        3. “Those with natural immunity are only immune to the original strain AND that immune is short lived.”

          This is false.

          Pfizer vax immunity is waning at six months. Natural infection immunity is showing broader, more durable protection at more than 12 months at this point.

          ——————————

          “That’s why you’re seeing only the unvaccinated getting sick again AFTER being sick with the original strain.”

          This is not true. Fully vaccinated people ARE getting the virus and spreading it.

          Is there evidence that people who have had Covid and recovered with natural immunity have gotten Covid TWICE? To my knowledge, no one with natural immunity has gotten it TWICE, but those who have only vaccine-induced immunity have been infected AFTER being fully vaccinated.

        4. “Because the elderly have been vaccinated it is now the younger and ignorant who are going to be dying at the greatest numbers.”

          This is not true.

          Fully vaxxed people have immunity *and* they ARE still getting infected and spreading the virus because the vaccine-induced immunity is not as effective against the variants as natural infection immunity.

          There are 3 categories:

          *Fully vaccinated who have only vaccine-induced immunity that is not complete protection such that they can still get infected and spread the virus, but are unlikely to be hospitalized or die from it.

          *Those who have had covid and recovered, but have NOT BEEN vaccinated, and only have natural immunity that is broad, robust and enduring –even against the variants.

          *Unvaccinated people who have never had covid. This is the only population that has no immunity.

          1. There’s actually a fourth category:

            Those who have had covid, recovered with natural immunity, AND also got fully vaccinated.

            Research will determine if vaccine-induced immunity on top of natural immunity actually helps or potentially harms in the long term.

    4. Do you wonder why Biden and Harris could care less that the southern border is wide open with hundreds of thousands coming into the country and yet the rest of us are supposed to mask up, again, and be blamed and shamed into forced vaccination?

      1. The southern border is NOT “wide open”. Those who are coming here from south of the border are tested for COVID and isolated if they test positive. You need to stop watching and believing alt-right media because they are helping to fuel the surge in the Delta variant of COVID, which is killing people.

        1. If this “Delta variant” is so contagious and deadly, then why wouldn’t the Biden admin STOP letting so many INTO the country in the first place?

          Why doesn’t Biden CLOSE the border? We do not HAVE to let ANYONE pour into the country with such a “lethal” and “contagious” new variant spreading so rapidly.

          Why won’t Biden secure the border? Finish the wall?

          The politicians are quick to lock us down, force us to wear masks, get vaccinated, lose our freedoms….yet Biden is letting illegal border crossing continue at record pace?

          It’s complete bullsh*t.

          1. The Delta variant is not coming from south of the border–it is a mutation due to spread of the Alpha variant because of Americans who refuse vaccination.

            1. That’s fascinating.

              Viruses don’t infect certain rioters, and they don’t infect certain migrants.

              Who knew?

        2. You are wrong Natacha, the southern border is WIDE open! I live in a border state and they are not being tested for COVID. Only if they have symptoms are they being tested, and that’s only if they are able to determine who the individuals are with symptoms.

    5. Did you see this from CNN?

      “Vaccination alone won’t stop the rise of variants and in fact could push the evolution of strains that evade their protection, researchers warned.

      They said people need to wear masks and take other preventative steps until almost everyone is vaccinated.”
      ——————–

      Notice how the second sentence contradicts the first sentence! Say whaat? —->

      “They said people need to wear masks and take other preventative steps until almost everyone is vaccinated.”

    6. Look at it this way….those in the unvaccinated category are now the ‘control group’ for researchers to study how durable, broad and enduring natural immunity may actually be. Cleveland Clinic did a study in 2020 that showed natural immunity is robust. Data now show the Pfizer vaccine effectiveness is waning at 6 months.

      If everyone, including those who have had covid and recovered, are being fully vaccinated, how then can reasearchers study the durability of a broad natural immunity versus a more narrow vaccine-inudced immunity?

      1. “ Cleveland Clinic did a study in 2020 that showed natural immunity is robust.”

        That was when the delta variant wasn’t dominant and natural immunity was not long lived. The vaccine is much more effective than the short lived natural immunity from the origin variant.

        It’s those who already had the original strain that are getting reinfected with the delta variant.

        1. “The vaccine is much more effective than the short lived natural immunity from the origin variant.”

          I believe this is incorrect.

          —————–

          “It’s those who already had the original strain that are getting reinfected with the delta variant.”

          Have seen NO evidence of this. But we have seen fully vaccinated people getting infected with delta variant.

    7. Natacha, I am SO interested in your argument that there is no “conspiracy” between the BIDEN Administration and BIG Tech. No one has ever “explained” the REAL relationship to us “stubborn, paranoid, IGNORANT people.” I am sure YOU can, however, so I challenge you to lay it all out for us. What exactly is the “truth” of that relationship? (Looks like I am becoming addicted to your UPPERCASE “quotation marks” habit.)

      1. Where is the proof that such a relationship exists? Provide it or shut up about it. Twitter removed the comment Turley complains about because IT IS A LIE–a lie that is killing people. Why won’t people like you believe the CDC, the health commissioners of all 50 states, the public health officials of all 50 states, the AMA, and each and every single professional medical related group? There is no reliable public health expert or agency that disputes that vaccination is the only way we will conquer COVID, or who disputes that vaccine hesitancy is what is causing the Delta variant to become the dominant strain or who disputes that the Delta variant is more easily transmitted and more lethal.

        1. There is no reliable public health expert or agency that disputes that vaccination is the only way we will conquer COVID,

          Because it’s an effing virus that will never be conquered.

          or who disputes that vaccine hesitancy is what is causing the Delta variant to become the dominant strain or who disputes that the Delta variant is more easily transmitted and more lethal.

          Because that’s the BIG effing lie!

          https://youtu.be/TtOu7jx3snQ

          1. Olly,

            “ Because it’s an effing virus that will never be conquered.”

            Smallpox was. Measles was. The only reason why it’s so difficult to get Covid under control is precisely because of the lying and misinformation that is being deliberately spread by the ignorant and the idiots who keep believing stupid conspiracy theories.

            The delta variant IS more transmissible, more virulent, and it’s affecting more people faster. BECAUSE morons keep buying onto the BS being spread by conservative pundits and nut jobs. Now those same people are complaining about the new mask mandates and new restrictions BECAUSE THEY are doing the spreading of the new virus variant.

            Stupid people are being too stupid to realize they are the stupid ones who are creating their own problems.

            1. “Smallpox was. Measles was. The only reason why it’s so difficult to get Covid under control . . .”

              The difference is in the nature of the virus’ ability to mutate.

              One simple question should have stopped your ignorant statement: Why haven’t the flu or common cold (sometimes caused by coronavirus) been wiped out?

        2. “. . . vaccine hesitancy” which is overwhelmingly a Black and Latino problem.

          There. Fixed it for you.

  6. Gee it must be difficult for Jonathan, the slow realization that the Nazi oops excuse me the Democrat party that he been a useful idiot in supporting is a monstrous organization that is indeed not only capable but on a daily nay minute by minute basis commits crimes against humanity. Without pity and without remorse not even using their predecessors excuse of Positivism “I was only following orders”. Its not a bad dream. The question is are you a sheep?

    1. There are tens of thousands of conservatives who are off social media altogether now because of these bogus bans — completely distorting perceptions and the national conversation about the public’s sentiments on every issue.

      I’m one of them. And even here, the way to comment is to use the social media accounts many of us have been forced out of.

      1. …and that is indeed the Utopia that leftists dream of and cheer for. And just wait until they employ AI to start linking accounts together to ban not only your single “offensive” or “dangerous” account, but all accounts that you use and any new ones that you might create. As soon as they develop enough data points to pick you blindly out of a crowd based on your online fingerprint, you will be erased entirely from the Internet.

  7. One of the common themes these days is give every kid a medal. Shield them from any of the harsh realities of failure. Make struggle a dirty word. Make showing any strength a liability and promote weakness as a virtue. After all our poor children can’t possibly be expected to have to feel the hurt of defeat, so lets call everyone winners even when they’re losing.

    On the other hand another common theme is to celebrate stupid. The “other side” as it were likes to play armchair scientist, making museums showing how the world is 6000 years old with displays of Fred and Barney riding Dino to work, and tossing out time proven NASA science in favor of big energy sponsored junk science to try and dismiss the fact the planets heating up and the burning of fossil fuels is playing a huge role in both that and the poisoning of our breathing oxygen.

    So I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that when democrats saw an opportunity to hurt Trump when the Covid virus came out, that they exploited it, turned it into this monster when in fact it was just another common virus that we get that is lethal to some but not most, ….. let me say that again, … another common virus we get (there are dozens of Corona viruses and have been for a long time) that is lethal to some but not most, …we shouldn’t be surprised that the democrats leveraged and exploited it, blowing it way out of proportion to get Trump out of office. And of course big commercialized medicine wasn’t going to turn away billions in govt subsidized profits overnight, and so played along brilliantly.

    No “conspiracy” or secret behind the scenes master plan. Just clever opportunism and the moral turpitude necessary to exploit it. It popped up, the democrats saw it and tossed out a few test balloons, the public, mostly already soft, lazy millennial’s ready for a break from their already cushy lives, swallowed it up hook line and sinker.

    But we shouldn’t be surprised. We’ve had two sides of the same coin now promulgating “their” facts for years now, and truth has taken a back seat to party affiliation. Its pretty much impossible to be a democrat or a republican and also be at the same time an honest person. You can’t do both any more.

    Its kind of like this. You have to either say the Emperor’s naked, or he’s wearing a fine set of new clothes. You can’t say he’s wearing a pair of Bermuda shorts and sandals, even if that’s what he’s wearing. You have to say one or the other, depending on which camp you’re in.

    We shouldn’t be at all surprised then, that they were able to take the time proven biology that was taught in school to all of us at least any one over 30, and label it heresy. Because having two groups lost in their own junk science and facts in a perpetual effort to discredit the other side, set the stage for just such a meltdown of all logic. So democrats took that same approach that somehow its healthier to spare children the hard realities of life as if they didn’t have the inherent capabilities to adapt and deal with them as all humans have since the dawn of creation, and turned it to biology, now claiming that our bodies don’t have the ability to develop antibodies to fight the constant bacteria and virii they are constantly and eternally being exposed to. They do. But they say we don’t now. But they’ve convinced the population we don’t, and made it heresy to speak of the long standing science of herd immunity.

    Herd immunity is not some new “Fox news” talking point. Its biology 101, basic knowledge that was taught in schools for as long as any of us can remember. But the democrat\liberal side of the news media says we don’t. And Fauci says we don’t. And because we have a new “he said\she said” media circus, there are no more facts to present. Instead all we get is; “republican’s say on the one hand that blah blah blah blah, but democrats on the other hand say blah blah blah blah …” and so on.

    As long as we allow the two parties and the media that’s joined at the hip to them, to divide and control us, then we will never see the forest, because the tree’s are in the way.

  8. It takes years to conduct clinical trials of any vaccine, and without the necessary time periods to observe reactions over the long haul and in various groups you cannot in any way claim to have developed a safe clinically proven vaccine. They are testing it on the population. The general population is the control group. If you’ve taken the vaccine then you are one of the study participants. Thank you for dedicating your body to science so that they can run their tests. In a few more years, 2 or 3 maybe, they’ll have worked out all the kinks I imagine. Of course there will always be new strains. Which is why 90 percent of the population doesn’t need the vaccine, as our own autoimmune systems still function as they always have even though in March 2020 they declared the time proven science of herd immunity heresy.

    It still works, even though we’re not allowed to talk about it any more, and will be called stupid if we claim to believe in that time proven biological fact, that we’ve always known and has always protected us as a species.

    So seriously, if you’ve had the vaccine, thanks for putting your body on the line for scientific study. I’m sure they’ll work out the bugs in another year or two so hang in there.

    But try to stick that needle in my arm, … and its going in someone’s eye.

    1. I understand. I did get the vaccine (and didn’t even get a lollipop, nevermind $100). I had qualms but I live with a person whose immune system is suppressed. We are a test group. I do agree with Dave Rubin and I don’t see that he said anything that would lead to misinformation. We need to “take a pause.” Each day is a new sound bite. I am tired of the infighting, the hate, the nastiness. One person or one group does not have all of the answers–someone else may have a thought, idea or opinion that just might help (just because it is different does not mean it is misinformation). Those who think they are smarter than the citizenry need to “take a pause” and think! The fact that people are “catching bugs” so to speak in my humble opinion is that we were separated from society for over a year (??) and our own immune systems were reduced. I don’t consider it misinformation, I consider it logic–common sense. Pause, breathe, think.

  9. Unfortunately the “left” no longer understands Orwell’s 1984 to be a warning. They’re using it as an operations manual.

    What they’ve forgotten, or perhaps never actually knew, eventually every totalitarian revolution eats its own (e.g. Reign of Terror, Nacht der langen Messer, Soviet show trials, Hundred Flowers Campaign, Khmer Rouge, etc…).

  10. I took the jab and I’ll take a booster, given my age and general medical condition. I still acknowledge that people have legitimate concerns and no one, not even the so called private sector, should censor them.

    So how can I get Twitter to suspend my account. I only have three followers, and I think 2 of them are bots, so that won’t happen I’m guessing

  11. I should not have to tell you Professor but Twitter isn’t the state. It’s what “conservatives” call private property. They can make their own rules. Now I may prefer that Twitter and Facebook and the rest were subject to the FCC and had to follow the long lamented fairness doctrine but they are not.
    The sad thing is that you know better but you chose to pretend you don’t.

    1. You’re omitting an important fact in this equation.

      When a politician demands that Twitter engage in “content modification,” *that* is censorship — of Twitter, by the government. (Please don’t claim that it was just a “request.” A “request” from the government is like a “request” from the Mafia’s bagman.) if Twitter then executes that “request,” then *that* is censorship by proxy.

      1. Sam,
        I read this interesting article yesterday and it made me consider another reason why our political masters desire to keep the American people as ignorant as possible. It cites Tocqueville’s observations comparing the United States and the old world aristocracies:

        In certain areas of the Old World . . . the inhabitants are for the most part extremely ignorant and poor; they take no part in the business of the country and are frequently oppressed by the government, yet their countenances are generally placid and their spirits light. In America I saw the freest and most enlightened men placed in the happiest circumstances that the world affords; it seemed to me that a cloud habitually hung upon their brows, and I thought them serious and almost sad, even in their pleasures. The chief reason for this contrast is that the former do not think of the ills they endure, while the latter are forever brooding over the advantages they do not possess.

        The same equality which allows every citizen to conceive these lofty hopes renders all the citizens less able to realise them. It circumscribes their powers on every side, while it gives freer scope to their desires. They have swept away the privileges of some of their fellow creatures which stood in their way, but they have opened the door to universal competition. . . . To these causes must be attributed that strange melancholy which often haunts the inhabitants of democratic countries in the midst of their abundance, and that disgust of life which sometimes seizes upon them in the midst of . . . their easy existence.
        https://www.nationalreview.com/2021/07/why-meritocracy-makes-us-miserable/?utm_source=Intercollegiate+Studies+Institute+Subscribers&utm_campaign=f44f2e86ca-Intercollegiate-Review-7-29-2021&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_3ab42370fb-f44f2e86ca-93293141&goal=0_3ab42370fb-f44f2e86ca-93293141

        It would seem the tyranny that is growing day by day, facilitated by the “New World corporate aristocracies,” is intended to cement the citizens into their current lot in life, that is until they stop struggling and are once again contented to live out their existence. Kind of like a weird form of democratic musical chairs and they’ve stopped the music. You get what you got and if you want to keep it, sit down and shut up.

        1. Reminds me of that famous quote from Franklin:

          “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

          1. The Enlightenment however changed the game for the aristocracy. I still believe we are in a 21st century version of the 18th century “Intolerable Acts.” This passage from the DoI applies at this moment:

            Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed.

            We are piling up our list of grievances and at some point the dam will burst:

            But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security.

          1. Edo, there is a certain logic in that. Kind of like, what you don’t know can’t hurt you. We could somewhat forgive the old aristocracy for the suffering they inflicted on the serfs, they were after all doing what has always been done. Post-enlightenment however, there was no excuse. The modern aristocracy are far more evil.

        2. Olly,

          I was struck by the article’s recitation of what:

          “Thomas Merton called “the strange error that our perfection depends on the thoughts and opinions and applause of other men.” “A weird life it is, indeed,” he wrote, “to be living always in somebody else’s imagination, as if that were the only place in which one could at last become real!”

          Now, who do you think immediately sprang to mind?

          Trump.

      2. Sam says:

        “Please don’t claim that it was just a “request.” A “request” from the government is like a “request” from the Mafia’s bagman.”

        Like Trump’s “request” to Ukraine just to announce an investigation into the Bidens? Or Trump’s “request” to the Georgia Secretary of State to find votes? Or today’s revelation that Trump “requested” the Acting Attorney General to just announce that the election was corrupt?

        I gotcha this time! Let me see you die-hard Trumpists try to wiggle out of this!

    2. Start making effective conservative arguments and present inconvenient facts, and they’ll ban you right quick.

    3. I will bet money that Justice Holmes favors forcing a baker to create a cake for a gay marriage, Holmes, the baker is not the state and also forcing his labor on something is quite the leap of leftism. Would the left force Streisand to sing at trump’s inaugural? Would Justice Holmes force a Muslim singer to perform at a gay wedding? Should a Black singer be forced to sing at a KKK rally?

      This is why the left censors the heck out of everything…their arguments are lame, they have no insistency and frankly people hate their ideas.

    4. John “Fox News” Turley has got to pretend a lot in order for him to get away with his hypocrisy. We won’t be able to expose the fact that he knows better until he allows himself to be questioned by a reporter.

    1. Defending Twitter’s suspending of Rubin. I can’t, that’s wrong. Defend ‘robust content moderation’? No problem. Turley’s free speech absolutism flies in the face of human nature (at least in the modern age) and the power of these networks. The best weapon against free speech can’t be more speech if lies are half way around the world by the time the truth has left the door. There would have been no WWII if hitler couldn’t speak widely. Yes, we need to risk the next Hitler for the sake of free speech, but that doesn’t mean that banning some manifestly false brainwashing statements which do actual harm to people somehow creates some slippery slope that cannot be pegged. Bet me 100 that in 2034 (remember, it’s like 19*84*… wooooooo) we can all work where we want, live where we want, say what we want (and if it’s not manifestly false information, even on Twitter), believe and not believe in whatever god we want, and have all the freedoms of today EVEN IF some committee twisting their mustaches up at Twitter decides to create rules which restrict (not totally unlike restrictions from old stable states around the globe) SOME manifestly false statements. The risk of capture is so low and so obvious it is only a danger in Turely’s head. Turley’s worry of 1984 wont’ come to pass, we’ll all be fine. Remember 2034….2034….2034….

      1. We aren’t talking about “manifestly false statements”. We are talking about manifestly true statements, like those about Hunter’s laptop. Did you notice that the mockingbird media was not banned when the soup de jour was that information coming out about Hunter’s laptop was classic Russian misinformation? Is Biden going to be banned for saying you are safe after being vaccinated? How about Fauci, who said masks aren’t necessary, or if you want to go on a cruise, you will be fine. Those were opinions that were manifestly wrong, and in one case, intentionally wrong.

      2. “These are but wild and whirling words, my lord.” Shakespeare said it better than I ever could. I really don’t understand your point, Joe.

  12. This is the Democratic party. When it comes to our citizens being masked or unmasked, they only support unmasking if it involves the NSA.

    Don’t be surprised if the Covid “variant” alarms are increased in volume as we once again face states ignoring election laws for the midterms.

    1. “Don’t be surprised if the Covid “variant” alarms are increased in volume as we once again face states ignoring election laws for the midterms.”

      Of course! (I wish I had thought of that motivation.)

      They always have a political agenda, as they drag science, kicking and screaming, behind them,

    2. “the Covid “variant” alarms”

      Here’s another, possible ulterior motive for the (renewed) Covid panic:

      Use that “emergency” to rationalize another round of “shutdowns.”

      Then blame the tanking economy (a disaster created by the Left) on the shutdowns.

      Presto! Instant deflection.

  13. This censorship is worse than anything Trump ever said, Jan. 6th or the threats from China and Russia. This is core destruction of our society from within. Once censorship takes hold there will be an unlimited number of reasons given for more of it.

  14. On no a member of the Trump Death Cult can not try to kill more pools by bashing the vaccine. Cry me a river.

    1. Weren’t the vaccines developed under the Trump Administration “Project Warp Speed” and were already being manufactured in October 2020? President Trump and his family have been vaccinated, so are you saying that anyone who is vaccinated is in the “Trump Death Cult”?

    2. Weren’t the vaccines developed under the Trump Administration “Project Warp Speed” and were already being manufactured in October 2020? President Trump and his family have been vaccinated, so are you saying that anyone who is vaccinated is in the “Trump Death Cult”?

  15. Leftist can never go toe to toe with those that disagree with their narrative. Leftist live with the ever present reality that their agenda never delivers on their stated goals.
    The answer to bad speech is more speech. If that is being shut down we know which side is supported by facts.

    Haven’t seen the science behind all the new protocols. The announcement was made Tuesday. That would be after weeks? of scientific data analysis? But for some reason they need yet more time to release the science? The science is a study from India, pertaining to a vaccine not used in the US, but the study failed peer review.
    How did the CDC get unpublished studies? Why use studies that failed peer review?
    But instead of science we get a dementia addled Joe regaling us with anecdotes of individuals suffering because they didn’t take the vaccine.

  16. Democratic Party and big tech Lefties are combining to subvert American political processes (and censor individuals).

    System is not currently able to protect our rights.

    That has to change (preferably through the voting process).

  17. I will suspend Twitter. Went in dumb, come out dumb too. Don’t use Twitter in your alligator shoes
