Default Online misinformation 'killing people,' President Joe Biden says

12 people. When you think about how Facebook has the population of a good sized country, it makes you angry that a handful of *hacks are responsible for endangering the American public.


* hack- noun. a person, as an artist or writer, who exploits, for money, his or her creative ability or training in the production of dull, unimaginative, and trite work; one who produces banal and mediocre work in the hope of gaining commercial success in the arts: As a painter, he was little more than a hack.

WH press secretary Jen Psaki proudly announced the WH is working with Facebook to censor whatever it deems as misinformation. Psaki later added that all social media platforms should follow suit by censoring the WH declared misinformation.

This corruption of social media into an instrument of Biden’s authoritarianism is a direct violation of the first amendment. The government is not allowed to use others to perform censorship it cannot do itself. Defenders of social media plutocrats censorship as a private property right naively assumed it wasn't driven by the Democrats it served uniformly. The glib excuse only emboldened the Biden administration to brazenly engage in full blown censorship.

The so-called Covid vaccines, which don't even fit the definition of a vaccine, are killing people, but the censors don't allow that information, so one could say that censorship about the experimental gene therapy jab is killing people.

Domenech: Contradictory Government COVID-19 Policies, Not Censored Facebook Posts, Are ‘Killing People’

Quote:
Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech pushed back on the idea that COVID-19 misinformation is “killing people” like President Joe Biden claimed, telling Fox News political analyst Juan Williams the White House is “lying” to the American people.

“So the government, I think, is right to say this is wrong,” Williams said. “That’s all that’s being said. That this is [the] wrong kind of information and that these platforms, they always say it’s not our fault, we don’t have anything to do with the content. But in fact, the content on their platforms is literally killing people.”

Biden said Friday that Facebook and other platforms are “killing people” with coronavirus falsehoods, which comes a day after White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters the administration is working with CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s company to flag posts viewed as “misinformation.”

Domenech reacted sternly to Williams, arguing that no evidence supported his repetition of Democrat talking points.

“I want to see that case made by Juan Williams,” Domenech said. “I want him to find one example, one person in this country who has died because of the misinformation that he’s talking about in this instance.”

“Because this is a lie,” Domenech continued. “The president’s lying to you. The surgeon general’s lying to you. Anyone who makes the case that this is actually killing people is lying to you. What is a vastly much more strong argument to make is that what’s killing people — what is leading people to not get vaccinated — is the policies of governments across this nation who are saying that, despite the fact that we said ‘if you get vaccinated you don’t have to wear a mask anymore … your kids can go to school,’ they’re rolling all of that back.”

Williams doubled down on the White House’s baseless conspiracy, noting, “I’ve not only seen people interviewed saying that this disinformation led, in some cases, to their parents to resist the vaccine and then end up dead, I’ve seen a man talk about his family.”

The publisher then told Williams, “This is as silly as saying the reason Donald Trump got elected was because of Facebook memes that said Jesus had endorsed him.”

ok I listened to the whole thing and didn't see where she said the govt is censoring; in fact quite the opposite, but feel free to check my source I have posted for you here and give us the time so we can view your evidence:

How many people have died after getting a vaccine?

Quote:
Between December 2020 and June 7th, 2021, VAERS received 5,208 reports of death (0.0017%) among people who got a vaccine. Doctors and safety monitors carefully review the details of each case to see if it might be linked to the vaccine. There are three deaths that appear to be linked to blood clots that occurred after people got the J&J vaccine. Since we now know how to correctly treat people who develop these blood clots, future deaths related to this very rare side effect can be prevented. By way of comparison, getting COVID-19 while unvaccinated poses a grave risk; as of June 14, 2021 more than 599,000 deaths have been attributed to the virus in the US alone.
Now 5,208 deaths out of a couple of hundred million vaccinated is an incredibly small amount, but saying it HASN'T happened is the actual lie...

On top of that, there is ZERO way of knowing how many deaths will have occurred because someone refused to get vaccinated base on "disinformation" they've read on the internet...

A) I HIGHLY doubt it would be anywhere near the same 5,208 deaths from the vaccine itself...

and B) no matter what the actual number could be, the Left will yell "ELEVENTY GAZILLION!!!!!!" to justify their suspension of rights given by our creator...

Uh, if thousands out of a sample of hundreds of millions of Americans did not die within a few months, it would be a miracle. Millions of people die in this country every year. What’s completely missing here is causation. And the lie is this idiotic claim that information about the virus killing people has been censored. The blood clot issue was very widely reported. The claim that those thousand of other deaths are due to the vaccine is just bullshlt.
