On Thursday, Dr. Robert Malone, a collaborator on the creation of mRNA vaccines, appeared on the Joe Rogan podcast as a guest, just one day after twitter banned his account.
"They removed you for not going along with whatever the tech narrative is, because tech clearly has a censorship agenda when it comes to COVID in terms of treatment, in terms of the— whether or not you're promoting what they would call vaccine hesitancy, they can ban you for that, they can ban you for in their eyes, what they think is a justifiable offense," said Rogan.
"And they're doing this and I don't know who these people are that are doing this, but they're doing this — one of the most important things about you reading out your history like that, is to one of the most qualified people in the world to talk about vaccines," he continued.
Malone started by pointing out that a number of lawyers have come forward looking to file a lawsuit against Twitter for the action. He questioned if he can’t discuss scientific facts that may be deemed "inconvenient," then who can?
"If — so the point that I think is kind of succinct on this is if my voice, if there's no merit to my voice being in the conversation, whether it's true or not, whether I'm factually correct or not, let's park that just for a minute. Whether or not I'm right in everything I say, and I freely admit, no one's perfect. I'm not perfect. It's one of my core points, is people should think for themselves," said Malone.
"I try really hard to give people the information and help them to think, not to tell them what to think. Okay? But the point is if I'm not — if it's not okay for me to be part of the conversation, even though I'm pointing out scientific facts that may be inconvenient, then who is who can be allowed?" he questioned.
"And whether you're in the camp that says I'm a liar, and I didn't invent this technology, despite the patents, and there's a whole cohort of that. No one can debate that dispute. But I played a major role in the creation of this tech and virtually all other voices that have that background, have conflicts of interest, financial conflicts of interest. I think I'm the only one that doesn't, I'm not getting any money out of this," he added.
Malone said that he and his wife "racked their brains" on why his account had been banned, and came to two posts that may have been the downfall.
"The last two that I can think of that went out was one that was on our Substack, in which we referred to a fantastic video that has been put out by the Canadian COVID Care Alliance group that summarizes all the malfeasance and data manipulation, misinterpretations associated with the Pfizer vaccines and their clinical trials. It's a super video, and of course, that's — I guess that is interpreted as something that would cause people to become vaccine hesitant. That's the sin in general is saying things that cause people to become vaccine hesitant," Malone said.
"The other thing that I put out immediately before that was a post, a link to a website for the World Economic Forum that lays out their entire strategy for how they manage media, how they're managing COVID-19, and all of their core messaging. It's a fascinating website with links. Those are the only two things I can think of that would meet the criteria," Malone continued.
Malone confirmed his Twitter ban on his Substack Wednesday, saying "We all knew it would happen eventually."
"Today it did. Over a half million followers gone in a blink of an eye. That means I must have been on the mark, so to speak. Over the target. It also means we lost a critical component in our fight to stop these vaccines being mandated for children and to stop the corruption in our governments, as well as the medical-industrial complex and pharmaceutical industries," Malone wrote.
Malone told The Epoch Times that while Twitter has provided notices about his posts, no action has been taken against him, and no warning was given before his account was banned.
“Over the past year, I have had a few notices from Twitter that there was a complaint about a post but that no action was taken,” he said. “I received no warning prior to the banning.”
In a screenshot provided to The Epoch Times by Malone containing Twitter's message on why his account was banned, the social media giant states: “Specifically, for: Violating our policy on spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19. You may not use Twitter's services to share false or misleading information about COVID-19 which may lead to harm."
