Vinay Prasad's most important op-ed
Too bad that only a few people in the mainstream medical community agree with what he wrote.
UCSF Professor Vinay Prasad is one of the few public truth-tellers in the medical community. When the CDC or the medical community put out garbage, Vinay is one of the few (and sometimes the only) mainstream doc to call them out on it in public.
And conversely, when there is a study that everyone should see that destroys the mainstream narrative, Vinay is just about the only guy giving that study air time like he did with the Finland mask study which showed that masks, if anything, make it more likely you’ll be infected. That study was suppressed in Finland and everywhere else.
Vinay Prasad was, as far as I know, the only person in the mainstream medical community to point out publicly that the Finland mask study effectively showed that the CDC was giving people bad advice. He also pointed out that this study is actually the best “test” to date because it was very well matched and very fair, essentially “as good as it gets” in medicine.
His YouTube videos are well done, he’s articulate, knowledgeable, entertaining, and informative.
Vinay Prasad’s most important op-ed
More than two years ago, Vinay co-authored a superb op-ed entitled, “Scientists who express different views on Covid-19 should be heard, not demonized.”
You don’t even have to read the op-ed to know what it says. It’s all in the title.
Sadly, it’s been over two years and nobody in the medical community supports what he wrote. Not a single university will hold an open discussion that questions any mainstream narrative.
Vinay Prasad is a hero for writing his op-ed, and his medical community colleagues are zeros for not embracing what he wrote. This is at the very root of the problems we are currently experiencing with our COVID response.
Acknowledging the only member of the medical community to act on Vinay’s op-ed
There is one member of the mainstream medical community who was willing to defend the mainstream narrative: Yale Professor Jason Abaluck.
We asked him to defend his paper (the famous Bangladesh mask study) that claimed that masks work.
We couldn’t believe it!!! We were high fiving each other. After a year of trying, we finally got ONE person who was willing to defend his paper!!!
He was decimated and we recorded the whole thing on video for everyone to see just how lame the science was that everyone believed. Jason couldn’t defend his own deeply flawed paper.
The video with me and Mike Deskevich makes it easy to understand what the paper was about and why it was flawed. We show the data graphically. It is stunning how anyone could think this study showed that masks work. Yet pretty much the entire medical community couldn’t figure this out
Professor Norman Fenton wrote to Science requesting the paper be corrected or retracted based on the work Fenton had done. Science refused to answer Professor Fenton. They are smart. They don’t engage in any debate they can’t win. They basically do what everyone else does: avoid challenges by ignoring the challenger. That’s the way science works nowadays: if your paper is challenged, ignore the challenge.
People who disagree with the narrative are not just deplatformed; they are retaliated against
Even worse than refusing to have any discussion, some scientists go the extra mile to deplatform, censor, and retaliate against those who do not embrace mainstream thinking.
For example, in the US, the American Board of Internal Medicine goes after doctors like Paul Marik, Peter McCullough, Pierre Kory, and more who tell the truth. They were invited to debate their targets in Washington DC by Senator Johnson, but they refused to show up. It’s the playbook: never allow anyone to challenge you in public or you will be exposed.
In Canada, Professor Byram Bridle’s fellow faculty members joined together to retaliate against him for telling the truth. He invited them all to debate him. No takers.
The mainstream medical community members who do not embrace Vinay’s op-ed should be ashamed of themselves.
