House Republicans on Wednesday questioned former Twitter executives over their censorship of conservative voices, critical COVID information, interference in the previous U.S. election, and the Hunter Biden laptop story.
During the Oversite and Accountability Committee’s hearing, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) questioned Twitter’s former chief legal officer, Vijaya Gadde, and revealed she was injured by her second COVID vaccine dose.
“The Twitter files were not just about the Hunter Biden laptop. The Twitter files make it apparent Twitter worked overtime to suppress accurate COVID information,” Mace said. “Dr. Jay Bhattacharya is a professor of medicine at Stanford who once tweeted an article he wrote about natural immunity. Thanks to Elon Musk’s release of the Twitter Files, we learned some of his tweets were tagged with the label of ‘trends blacklist.’ Apparently, the views of a Stanford doctor are disinformation to you people.”
“I, along with many Americans, have long-term effects from COVID. Not only was I a long-haulers, but I have effects from the vaccine. It wasn’t the first shot, but it was the second shot that I developed asthma that has never gone away since I had the second shot. I have tremors in my left hand, and I have the occasional heart pain that no doctor can explain—and I’ve had a battery of tests.
“I find it extremely alarming Twitter’s unfettered censorship spread into medical fields and affected millions of Americans by suppressing expert opinions from doctors and censoring those who disagree with the CDC. I have great regrets about getting the shot because of the health issues I now have that I don’t think are ever going to go away. And I know that I’m not the only American who has those types of concerns.”
Mace went on to discuss Twitter’s censorship of Harvard-educated epidemiologist Dr. Martin Kulldorf, who said the shot was important for high-risk individuals but that people with prior natural infection and children did not need it. Twitter flagged the tweet because it was contrary to the CDC’s position.
“Why do you think you or anyone else at Twitter have the medical expertise to censor a doctor’s expert opinion?” Mace asked Gadde, who said their policies were designed to “protect individuals.”
“You guys censored Harvard-educated doctors, Stanford-educated doctors, doctors that are educated in the best places in the world, and you silenced those voices,” Mace said.
At the same time, Mace pointed out Twitter’s inconsistency in flagging CDC information as “misleading” when highly educated doctors used it to counter the government’s official COVID narrative.
The mainstream media is not accurately cover the hearing, focusing instead on the Trump administration’s request to Twitter to remove a vulgar tweet by Chrissy Teigen about Trump.
Americans couldn’t care less about Chrissy Teigen. Americans care about the fact they were deprived of informed consent because Twitter colluded with the Biden administration, FBI, CIA, CDC, and representatives like Democrat Adam Schiff to manipulate information about COVID and vaccines—which likely led to countless injuries and deaths.
This hearing is crucial, as is Mace’s admission. People are being injured daily by COVID-19 vaccines because they believe, largely due to censorship of accurate information, the shots are safe and effective. We can never let something like this happen again. Accountability is the first step to ensure it doesn’t.
