The depths that some will go to control the narrative regarding the COVID-19 crisis response is mind-boggling, folks.
But if the ‘powers that be’ think that The Baltimore Post is going to stop providing a counter-narrative to the inane approach by local politicians using what we believe to be flawed scientific data, then–as the old saying goes–they have another think coming.
The Post, and many others like us, will never bow to censorship from the far-left liberal establishment, even if that side controls the political and tech giants of the world.
We’re sure we aren’t the only ones who can’t stand the stench of hypocrisy that rises from censorship of opposing viewpoints.
You may remember a previous column that criticized Johns Hopkins University and Governor Larry Hogan over their draconian approach to dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.
How convenient that just days after we featured that video of Dr. Daniel Erickson’s interview with one of the world’s leading epidemiologists, Dr. Knut Wittkowski, the video was pulled from YouTube. Instead of an insightful counterargument from leading medical professionals, all people see is a shameful black screen:
Yet, elsewhere on YouTube, one can easily find pirated videos that violate copyrights or plenty of videos featuring nudity, graphic violence, and streams of obscenities–all of which do not violate the terms of service.
Our guess is that the Terms of Service must include language that states something along the lines of ‘Thou shalt not post videos about what the left-wing disapproves.’
Folks, The Baltimore Post will continue to publish information that we believe valuable to our readers. We will continue to ask the tough questions of the political and scientific communities. Their actions/reactions/overreactions could cost more lives and cause more devastation than the coronavirus would alone.
We hope that one day Congress will hold accountable everyone who violated the constitutional right of free speech. Until that day, we have to deal with the fact that a precious few control the narrative from within their ivory towers, stomping on the rights of citizens and denying the public access to discourse.
Thankfully, we are not the only media outlet trying to provide an alternative narrative on COVID-19.
Finally, here is another video that we hope YouTube does not snatch from the eyes of the public:
We can only hope that, in the end, the truth will prevail and those who tried to stifle that truth will no longer be allowed to do so.
