This woman and others spoke before a hearing at the South Carolina state legislature. Here in North Carolina, our state legislators have yet to conduct comparable hearings that invite health and science experts to testify:

  1. The South Carolina legislature is clearly more enlightened than NC solons. At least they are at least willing to listen to experts in the field

    1. Fred, the NC legislators have passed or in the process of passing some good measures as a result of governmental handling of the pandemic. However, there is more to do. Hearings are a great way of educating the public and highlighting an issue. The oversight committee should have been very busy with covid-related hearings.

  2. Not sure if this relates here, but interesting from the medical censorship aspect:

    “A federal appeals court ruled that the White House, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the FBI, and the surgeon general violated a Stanford doctor’s First Amendment rights by using social media to silence him.
    Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine, economics, and health research policy at Stanford University, co-authored the Great Barrington Declaration in 2020, which raised important questions about how lockdowns and other COVID-19 policies were handled in the U.S. during the pandemic.

    “We were just acting as scientists, but almost immediately, we were censored. Google de-boosted us. Our Facebook page was removed. It was just a crazy time,” Bhattacharya told the New York Post.
    A three-judge panel based in New Orleans found that the federal government worked with social media companies to silence certain viewpoints on COVID-19.
    “The government had a vast censorship enterprise. It was systematically used to threaten and coerce and jawbone and tell all these social media companies, ‘You better listen to us: Censor these people, censor these ideas, or else,'” Bhattacharya said.”

    1. JayCee, I think your excerpt definitely applies here. A desire to prevent the truth from being heard is the common element.

      Motivations? Big pharma rewards. A desire to cover up previous cowardice, or current cowardice. Sympathy toward a command-and-control approach, using “emergency powers”, to respond to problems. Political correctness. Aversion to risk. Ignorance and intellectual bias. A desire to cover up misdeeds.

      Bhattacharya, by the way, is yet another hero of the pandemic.
