Is Big Tech Endangering Americans By Censoring Medical News?
Big Tech has taken to censoring any information they deem is not in tune with what they want out there concerning COVID-19, this censorship is endangering the public by not giving them the required information for us to move forward with informed knowledge.
The other day I posted nothing giving any medical advice, rather some experts, who are qualified to provide information, was talking about the benefits shown with hydroxychloroquine. They were also discussing if it was harmful or if the sudden resistance against it came due to political pressure.
No one was told to take this medication or not, yet Twitter shut down the post almost as quickly as it was posted.
Breitbart News recently experienced this because it dared to post a press conference video featuring Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) and licensed doctors sharing their views and opinions on coronavirus and the medical response to the pandemic. The event was held by the organization America’s Frontline Doctors and organized by the Tea Party Patriots.
What got them banned was they were carrying a Livestream feed, in the feed the doctors spoke of treatment outside of the usual norm, this instantly got a ban from Twitter.
It is incredible, Twitter and Big Tech, for some odd reason, think they have a right to dictate what medical advice we get today.
And Twitter isn’t the only place doing this, so is Google, I have faced problems with them if I post anything about alternative medical treatment, they demonetize the articles, but then they do the same if you dare to write anything critical of Black Lives Matter. They don’t ban you or cut off your speech; they just wholly devalue it, so you are left with two choices, either continue to expose and go bankrupt or write about something else. At this point, we are doing both.
One of the problems is the politicization of medicine that we have seen from the left, and nothing is more politicized then hydroxychloroquine. Breitbart experienced the wrath of the leftist censors with this, who ended up getting banned.
In the United States, hydroxychloroquine is legal, FDA approved medication available only by prescription, so a person would have to go to their doctor and get it prescribed after deciding with their doctor whether or not to take hydroxychloroquine.
And, whether Twitter likes it or not, or thinks it should be otherwise, doctors are prescribing hydroxychloroquine on an off-label basis for COVID-19; Twitter is trying to pretend it is not happening or wishing it was not happening is self-sophistry.
Twitter has demanded that Breitbart News delete the following tweets before restoring access to the account. Breitbart appealed that decision, and pending appeal has been locked out of its account. Incredibly, Twitter took almost three full days to reply to Breitbart’s appeal – meaning time and traffic lost during a fast-moving election season. When Twitter finally did respond, it denied the motion.
Twitter then demanded that Breitbart News delete the following tweets before restoring access to the account. Breitbart serves a 12-hour “time out” — meaning even more time and traffic lost during a fast-moving election season.
Twitter’s actions have public health implications. The tech giant is preventing the public, including the critically ill, from receiving information from physicians with first-hand experience treating COVID-19 patients. Twitter’s censorship denies the public access to information — and that can put lives, health, and well-being of Americans at risk.
The left along with its enforces with Big Tech, accuses Trump of endangering the US public. Still, I beg to differ; they are doing this by trying to politicize treatment, cutting off information that could help people make informed decisions, not what they are supposed to be doing.
