Odd Connections

I urge you to read a recent article with some excerpts below, all from Dr Robert W Malone at https://rwmalonemd.substack.com/p/antivax-antisemitism?. It is important because a book is about to hit the market in the coming months that makes the false connection between warnings against official “treatments” to combat covid19 and antisemitism. It’s the same argument style that leftists always wheel out: non-connections that in their minds are connections. After the article’s introduction, a transcript of an interview between Dr. Peter Hotez, the book’s author, and MSNBC appears with added convincing rebuttals from Malone against Hotez’s numerous claims.

According to this article, In his forthcoming book, The Deadly Rise of Anti-Science: How Health Freedom Propaganda Endangers the World (Johns Hopkins Press anticipated 2023), Hotez estimates that 200,000 Americans needlessly lost their lives from COVID during the last half of 2021 alone, which he largely blames on propaganda from the far right.

Read the transcript or watch the interview of ‘Death By Anti-Science’: Dr. Peter Hotez On Vaccine Disinformation on MSNBC, Sep 15, 2021. The transcript offers helpful comments of the interview as we travel through it. Then read on to find out about what possibly happened to Dr Peter McCullough, advocate of maligned, effective and cheap treatments for saving lives during the covid pandemic:

So who is Dr. Peter Hotez?

Peter Hotez, MD, PhD, is Texas Children’s Hospital Endowed Chair for Tropical Pediatrics, and Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine…

Of note is that COVID expert and early treatment advocate Dr. Peter McCullough also was once a full professor and Vice Chief of Internal Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center. I have often wondered whether Dr. Hotez played any role in the Baylor University railroading of Dr. McCullough.

Hotez’s belief that he is the victim of anti-semitic attacks from anti-vaxxers because of his being a scientist involved in vaccine research:

I am Jewish, I eventually experienced first-hand multiple anti-Semitic statements and threats online (see Figure 1 for examples). Two themes predominated. First there were overt threats or expressions of hatred because I was Jewish. More frequently, however, there were hurtful attempts to accuse me (as well as my colleagues who vaccinate) of perpetrating crimes equivalent to those committed during the Holocaust. Antivaxxers love their Nazi analogies, and I was ultimately compared to the infamous Dr Mengele because I am a scientist who conducts vaccine research, and because I “experimented” on my daughter by ensuring that she still received her recommended vaccinations despite an autism diagnosis. Later emails appearing in my inbox openly expressed their desire to see me hang after some sort of new-age Nuremberg tribunal (Figure 1, top left). I was not alone—a pattern emerged in which Jewish physicians and scientists who conducted vaccine research or advocated for vaccinations were singled out and targeted with Nazi imagery

Rebuttal from Dr Malone

As I examine Figure 1, I do not see anti-semitic comments. Rather what I observe is typical internet trollery and hate, the likes of which I receive daily – including frequent accusations that I am a mass murderer for having made my 1988-1991 discoveries and inventions involving mRNA delivery and use for medical and vaccine purposes. Although I spent quite a bit of time as a youth in the household of Aaron Roberts, who was both Jewish and my best friend, I am a gentile. But I still frequently receive this type of hate.

Later in the article we see the actual attitudes about the vaccination program from Jews of a dissenting opinion to that of Dr Hotez:

By the grace of the Alm-ghty

26th of Marcheshvan, 5782

November 1, ‘21

Official translation of the Halachic delineation rendered and signed on the 22 nd of Marcheshvan (after hearing eight hours of testimony from experts and other witnesses), with partial additional elaboration:

We the undersigned convened together to render judgement regarding the new “Covid 19 vaccine” (which we shall henceforth refer to as “injection”, “vaccine”, or “mRNA”, although our intention is to include the “Adenoviral vector DNA” vaccine as well), and we heard testimonies from experts whose expertise is in this field. We also heard from doctors who invented and manufactured the mRNA, who testified as to its function (most doctors in medical practice are not experts in these matters at all, and from our experience and as is well‐known, they merely relate the information provided to them by the NIH, CDC, etc.).

They illustrated to us the profound danger and harm inherent in this new technology. They showed us how the governmental agencies and the pharmaceutical companies deny this fact, and how they conceal the data, making it so difficult for the public to realize the severe adverse reactions and mortalities that have befallen so many people who received the injection. We were also made privy to how they withhold the said information through various means, preventing the injuries and deaths from being publicized by the media or on the internet, as known…

OK, so there’s a Jew over here in favour of the COVID vaccines and there’s another group of Jews over there who are opposed to their use. Why invoke anti-semitism and Nazism when on both sides of the fence on this issue, we have Jews? Confounding “anti-science” with “anti-vaxxer” along with Jewish persecution in this scenario makes no sense. There is no connection, as demonstrated by two opposing opinions regarding the vaccines, both coming from Jews. To see this complete article and others from Dr Malone, here is the link.
