Tyranny is always conceived by a powerful few but it is midwived and delivered by the powerless masses who decide to be the enforcers of the establishment. Time and time again, autocrats were able to commit atrocities and stifle the freedoms of millions because they were aided and abetted by the very people who were being oppressed. This was evident in Germany during the age of Hitler. In my homeland Ethiopia the Derg rose to power, and countless other nations, were likewise bruised and shattered by the scourge of authoritarianism.
Because humans have the memory of a cicada, we are traveling down the same roads of fascism and self-nullification that led to the destruction of empires. Instead of debating armed with facts, ad hominem and shouting people down have become as commonplace as tea and crumpets in the UK. Reporting others to the authorities and muzzling people based on their identity or beliefs is so pervasive that the cancel culture has turned society into a Petri dish of pretentious and preening prima donnas. As much as the corporate-government-media complex keeps stripping our freedoms away, the actions of too many who resuscitate McCarthyism and tattletale on anyone who does not abide by their narrow doctrines are just as malicious as those who govern with iron fists.
When someone dares to exercise their Constitutional and God-given rights to free speech and state something that runs counter to conventional “wisdom”, they are met not with disagreement but with baseball bats as a cavalcade of snitches immediately refer people they do not agree with to the “higher ups”. Instead of debating in good faith and attacking the facts, the new normal is to bash and bloody “heretics” in order to appease fragile feelings. We are letting snowflakes—who get offended by ideas that counter their gospels of nescience—and counterfeit social justice warriors to cyberbully everyone and infect public opinion in the process.
As much as I chafe at the way Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Reddit and other social media platforms censor millions of people, the reality is that their tyranny is being enabled by treacherous snakes amongst us who think so highly of themselves that they believe anyone who doesn’t echo their dogmas must be silenced. The same way that neighbors used to call the secret police on neighbors in my birthland Ethiopia and assisted the ruling class to commit a genocide against 500,000 men, women and children in the name of safety and security, jackasses with egos the size of Texas and wisdom befitting Sarah Palin are nullifying the rights of others because they equate dissent with oppression.
Yesterday evening, I entered a room in Clubhouse that was dedicated to the way YouTube censored Bret Weinstein by taking down an amazing interview he conducted that informed tens of thousands of people about the safety and efficacy of Ivermectin in treating Covid-19. After listening attentively for about 30 minutes, I was invited to the stage to speak. Given the fact that the topic was censorship, I decided to talk less about the science behind mRNA and adenovirus boosters that are being presented as a panacea even though they could very well be worse than the disease itself. Instead, I focused on the human factor of fear that has led us to this paradigm of Covid totalitarianism. I barely spoke before one of the moderators promptly booted me off stage and paternalistically stated that he did not have time for my nonsense.
What’s going on with @YouTube deleting Bret Weinstein’s Ivermectin video is crazy. Anything that goes against the mass vaccination agenda gets memory holed.

The irony of it all, on a stage full of people who were outraged about the denial of Bret Weinstein’s free-speech, all but a few spoke up in my defense as they coveted the microphone more than they cared about the very liberties they were supposedly fighting to preserve. This type of double-standard when it comes to demanding justice is par for the course in an age where too many are conditioned to view equality through the lens of tribe instead of honoring our common humanity.
Earlier that day, I was in another Clubhouse room that was started to discuss a Pfizer peer-reviewed document suggested that “vaccine” spiked proteins could potentially enter the ovaries, inducing abnormal menstrual cycles with the very real possibility of making women who are jabbed infertile. A doctor was leading the conversation when all a sudden a bunch of rabid participants joined the room and lashed out at him and a moderator; instantly poisoning the room with their condescension.
Within short order, the room was shut down and the doctor who was offering information based on Pfizer’s research was banned from Clubhouse. This level of breathtaking suppression was only possible because a procession of entitled and self-important goons reported the room. Both the doctor and the chief moderator named Nic Mitchell, a former BBC journalist, were immediately ejected from the room and suspended. Instead of engaging in debates armed with facts, the unruly and aggressive army, many of them doctors, torpedoed a discussion that involved hundreds of people in the audience because they insolently believed that they had ownership of truth and must abort the voices of others who had craved truth but were instead silenced for daring to have the merest of divergent thoughts. This type of abrasive demeanor is not about science, these are dispositions exhibited by cultists who idolize Fauci more than they honor facts.
Though these repressive tactics are prevalent throughout society, the truth is that some of the most zealous fascists are people who are on the “left” and identify as “progressives”. There is nothing progressive about censorship; if you were offended by the conduct of our previous president yet revert to his level of smugness and ostentation, you were only triggered because Trump was reflecting your character. As for doctors who think their PhDs give them license to lecture us and rob people of their agency, I am here to tell you that your doctorate does not grant you wisdom. To the contrary, most of the time, highly educated means supremely indoctrinated.
As luck would have it, as soon as I published this article, I was tipped off that Dr. Siyab Panhwar and group of fanatical medical professionals he associates with who reported Dr. Nick and keep getting people banned from Clubhouse posted this tweet below. Like cowards who bully others and then claim to be victims when the people they victimize push back, they are trying to gaslight their followers and bend public opinion in their corporate patrons’ favor by reverting to Machiavellian ploys. As if they were intent on proving my point, the supposed “evidence base” doctors are literally begging Paul Davison and Rohan Seth, the co-founders of Clubhouse, to shut down anyone who dares to question their quack science.
While I admire and honor medical professionals for the work that they do—especially given how doctors and nurses were there in my family’s time of needs as my mom was succumbing to Covid-19 last year—I will not stand by and let this group of pernicious biotech corporation shills try to cow people into submission by weaponizing their titles. I remind Dr. Siyab Panhwar and his cohort of highly funded mercenaries what happened to doctors who experimented on Jews and other marginalized communities without informed consent. Moreover, I made the mistake of entering their Clubhouse room this evening, the fact that they are literally conspiring to “silence these people” and reaching out to social media corporations to deplatform people they disagree with is very illuminating about exactly who and what they are.
These doctors who claim to be “evidence based” are anything but, anytime they are confronted with the latest news whether it’s “vaccinated” children who are coming down with myocarditis or women who are having miscarriages right after getting jabbed, they dismiss these horrific developments the same way Donald Rumsfeld used to dismiss the deaths of thousands of Iraqis as collateral damage. These same doctors are on Clubhouse almost 24/7; which begs the question, how are they tending to patients when they are on social media spewing propaganda eight hours at a time. It would not surprise me in the least if these “evidence based” doctors are being funded by Big Pharma to do public relations work for them; after all, doctors in the 1950’s were getting paid by cigarette companies to endorse smoking.
Journalists who question Big Pharma are not spreading disinformation, we are doing our job. The burden of proof is not on us to prove the safety and efficacy of experimental “vaccines”, the burden of proof is on biotech corporations to disprove our valid concerns and prove their products are not harmful.
I know that we are enduring stressful times and that everyone’s nerves are frayed thanks to this dreaded pandemic, but it is precisely during these moments that we need compassion and empathy the most. Instead, we are being flooded by a bunch of nitwits drunk on their own egos who are intent on suppressing free-speech. There are some who traffic in this type of hostility because they are hurting and I want to be compassionate to these people; but at a certain point, I cannot remain silent when those who are broken insist on breaking others. If you cannot engage in civil discourse and instead want to lash out at others because you are hurting, get off social media and seek help.There is nothing progressive about silencing people based on their beliefs and there is nothing conservatives about censorship; people who bully and cancel others whom they disagree with are cancers upon us. #GainOfDisfunction Click To Tweet
I can tell you from personal experience where we are headed as a people if we keep allowing the rights of most to be negated by the loudest and most obnoxious trolls. We are already seeing restaurants in Chicago revive apartheid as they partition “vaccinated” people apart from the unjabbed, segregated concerts taking place at Madison Square Garden and high school proms where unhinged educators are using markers to brand people who are not “vaccinated; if we do not push back severely against this type of state sponsored and outsourced bigotry, we will find out the hard way how collective judgement eventually leads to collective punishment. Mass-atrocities do not happen overnight, they sprout from the soils of otherization and demonization which eventually lead to persecution of people based on their identities, beliefs or both.
A society that censors is a society that is in a death spiral. There are millions of people marching and protesting on behalf of human rights but the sad truth is that most are only concerned about their privileges while they deny other humans their rights. It’s often said that snitches get stitches, but this time around people who keep squealing on others will not get stabbed by vigilantes who hate informants but by the very authorities they keep tipping off. People who revel in schadenfreude at the thought of gagging others are weaving a rope that will one day be a noose around their necks. As abuses are committed against others and condoned by society, those same mistreatments will come for those who remain silent or comply with injustice.
“Wherever men and women are persecuted because of their race, religion, or political views, that place must—at that moment—become the center of the universe.” ~ Elie Wiesel
