Social media continues to try to control the message
Last week, YouTube censored a video conversation between Dr. Pierre Kory and Dr. Chris Martenson. The reason they gave was that YouTube doesn’t allow “claims about COVID-19 vaccinations that contradict expert consensus from local health authorities or the World Health Organization.”
On Thursday, July 21, in the lead up to World Ivermectin Day, Twitter permanently suspended the World Council for Health (WCH_org) from the platform without warning.
Stephanie Seneff, a Senior Research Scientist at MIT who published a recent paper with Dr. Peter McCullough looking at whether mRNA vaccines may be causing illness and death, had her account suspended last week as well.
Dr. Mary Talley Bowden? Banned.
Vaccine Safety Research Foundation? Banned.
Epoch Times? Blockaded, then released after public outcry.
Guess what happens when you click on a link in Twitter to FLCCC’s treatment protocols? You get a “warning” letting you know that the link may be “unsafe” because it could lead to information that could be misleading, “disrupt” your experience or lead to “real-world harm.”
We say… try it for yourself and see what happens.
The list of attendees at this ‘blocked party’ is, truthfully, too hard to keep up with. Let’s just say all the cool kids are getting invited. We’re starting to wonder why we’re still alive on the platform, though we often feel our invitation is just lost in the mail.
In 1868, a doctor named J. Marion Sims addressed a meeting of the Medical Society of New York. During his talk, which focused on the diagnosis and treatment of sterility, he said:
“Any great truth… must first be opposed, then ridiculed, after a while accepted, and then comes the time to prove that it is not new, and that the credit of it belongs to someone else.”
If we look at the events of the past few years, it seems these phases are not exactly linear. It feels more like truth is being simultaneously opposed and ridiculed, and maybe even, in some cases, accepted.
As a strategy, we at FLCCC often talk about making a concerted move away from platforms that feel like a sword of Damocles dangling over our heads to concentrate our efforts instead on building an audience and supporting companies that promote free speech and healthy debate.
To do this, we need your help. For better or for worse, social media offers us a way to reach you and other people who may benefit from our information. We currently reach the most people on Twitter (212,000 followers), Facebook (51,000 followers) and Instagram (44,000 followers). By comparison, our accounts on some of the more freedom-friendly platforms are considerably smaller — Gettr (4,000 followers) and Odysee (18,000 followers). [We do have 54,000 followers on Telegram. Yay!]
So here’s where you come in: If you follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and don’t follow us on Gettr, Odysee or Telegram, please make the switch now. Turn on notifications on those channels. Tell your friends. Help us get to a point where we can flip the switch and move away from platforms that squelch public debate and censor information. Let’s stop Big Tech from trying to tell us what to think (like Twitter tried to do below).
P.S. If you’re new to Telegram, The Vigilant Fox has put together a very helpful list of who to follow.
