OSHKOSH – On Thursday, The Federalist published an op-ed by U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Dr. Robert Malone on how the COVID cartel – federal health agencies, Big Pharma, legacy media, and Big Tech – wrongly scapegoated those who chose not to be vaccinated and pit Americans against each other.
The full op-ed can be found here, and excerpts are below.
“The timing of scapegoating the unvaccinated for the ongoing pandemic was no coincidence. For anyone paying attention and not blinded by the siren song of Fauci, it was becoming apparent that the vaccines were not as safe or effective as we all hoped and prayed they would be. Because the Covid cartel was so vested in vaccines as the only solution to the coronavirus, evidence that their strategy was failing required a response.”
“The fall 2020 surge had peaked in January 2021, with the number of cases and deaths falling rapidly over the next 5 months. By June 2021, there had been approximately 120 million Covid infections in America, and strong evidence of the durability of natural immunity following Covid infection was growing. The percentage of fully vaccinated Americans was steadily increasing, and the logical expectation was that herd immunity was being achieved and the end of the pandemic should mercifully be in sight.
But it wasn’t, and the Covid cartel needed someone to blame: the unvaccinated. Because they had done everything they could to block early treatment, they had no therapeutics to offer the newly infected. Unlike Mexico, India’s Uttar Pradesh, and many other “less developed” nations, they couldn’t suddenly embrace the widely available, safe generic drugs they had spent the last year trashing and suppressing. The body count was simply too high for them to admit they were wrong about the life-saving potential of these drugs. So instead of fessing up to their tragic mismanagement, they allowed more people to needlessly die.”
“The American people were manipulated and turned against each other to hide government mismanagement, while many died unnecessary deaths due to suppression of early treatment options. Countless workers had to choose between losing their jobs or being coerced into accepting a medical treatment – Covid vaccination – they preferred to refuse. Businesses were disrupted, closed, and harmed, and the fabric of American society was deeply scarred.”
“A time of reflection and reckoning is coming, as the Canadian trucker strike proves. The Biden administration and the rest of the Covid cartel must stop dividing America and abusing its awesome powers. The path forward should be obvious. Respect the public by being honest and transparent with it. And stop infringing our God-given freedom and personal health autonomy.”
