American Consequences - September 2021


smirking at what they called his “conspiracy theories.” Social media companies even banned suggesting that COVID-19 was man-made! “Never before could a couple of companies just shut conversation off,” I say to Paul. “That’s a real danger to scientific and journalistic inquiry,” he replies. “The advancement of knowledge requires skepticism... debate on both sides. (But) these monolithic social media companies are determining what the truth is.” Well, what they say truth is. Maybe they banned the Chinese lab-leak idea because former President Donald Trump expressed it. But Trump lying a lot doesn’t make everything he says false. There was actual evidence of a lab leak. American diplomats warned of risky experiments at the Wuhan lab before the pandemic. Three workers there got COVID-19 symptoms before the disease appeared elsewhere. Only when that became public did Fauci say, “It could have been a lab leak.” Then President Joe Biden ordered an investigation. Suddenly, Facebook unbanned the theory. Its previous censorship relied on its sloppy and biased “fact-check” group, “Science Feedback,” which has smeared me twice in the past. What other important truths does censorship conceal? We’ll never know when Facebook/ Twitter/YouTube only allow us to hear one side. Paul says he’s eager to “tell everybody how

WHO bureaucrats aren't perfect... They made many mistakes during COVID-19. Such mistakes got corrected through criticism and debate. But YouTube now forbids that! pre-pandemic experiments at Wuhan that combined coronaviruses to see if they could infect humans. Paul didn’t suggest that the experiment the U.S. government funded created COVID-19. It didn’t. We know that because of COVID- 19’s molecular structure. But gain-of-function is still risky science that deserves public discussion. The NIH did fund Such mistakes got corrected through criticism and debate. But YouTube now forbids that! Last month, Paul got into a heated debate with Dr. Anthony Fauci over money the National Institutes of Health gave to Chinese scientists. Paul asked if it was used to do “gain-of-function” research (science that makes diseases deadlier— to learn more about them). “Does Fauci respond and explain to us in a reasonable fashion, why he thinks it’s not gain of function? No! He calls me a liar,” says Paul in my new video. Fauci did once write that even if a pandemic did occur from such research, “benefits ... outweigh the risks.” “Sounds like incredibly bad judgement,” says Paul. Yet the media attacked Paul’s judgement instead,
