Silicon Valley goes anti-science, stifles public inquiry into COVID treatments

Seeks to silence white lab coats that don’t agree with them

July 28, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement blasting Facebook, Twitter and Google for removing a press conference video by frontline doctors featuring U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.) and organized by Tea Party Patriots:

“Facebook, Twitter and Google (through YouTube) have all colluded to suppress a discussion by doctors about studies and their clinical experiences which show that the medicine Hydroxychloroquine when used with zinc and arithromycin may be helpful when it is used either prophylactically or in the early stages of the Chinese-originated COVID-19 virus.  The efficacy of HCQ is not a surprise to those who have been paying attention as more doctors around the world who treat the virus have ranked it as the most effective treatment than any other medicine, and very recent, honest study from Henry Ford Health Systems showed that the use of the drug cut the death rate among COVID patient users ‘significantly.’

“So the question is simple. Why would the three social media giants collude to ban doctors from discussing scientific studies as well as their own clinical experiences from the public?  And the only conclusion is that they have decided that they don’t want alternative experiences to be discussed on their platforms even when it comes to scientific debate and public inquiry over treatments for the COVID virus.  There can no longer be any doubt that these three platforms are effectively joined at the hip, apparently acting in concert in actions counter to our nation’s antitrust laws. It is time to break up big tech, before it breaks America.”
