Facebook Censors Tucker Carlson — And Science Doing China’s bidding by shutting down free speech.

The story on Tucker Carlson Tonight was startling.

Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan, as Fox reported, “claimed to have evidence showing China ‘intentionally’ released COVID-19 onto the general population.”

Who is Dr. Yan? Tucker described her biography this way:

We do know that Dr. Li-Meng Yan is not a quack.

She’s authored peer-reviewed papers on coronavirus transmission in both Nature Magazine and The Lancet. Those are two of the most respected publications in all of science. Her paper on the origin of COVID-19, which she has published online, is not frivolous. In it, she points to specific evidence for the claims that she makes. She identifies so-called cut sites which are frequently used in genomic engineering that would allow scientists to swap in sequences from other viruses to create what she described last night as a Frankenstein bioweapon.

To be clear, I have no idea if Dr. Yan is correct. I do know that Tucker said she had to flee China for her life because of her belief, and is now in hiding somewhere in the United States. And he made plain this:


Are her allegations true? We have no way of knowing.

We can’t verify her allegations but she is a serious person making a very serious claim.

Indeed she is.

Tucker added,

Skepticism is the essence of science. Scientists challenge every assumption. They test every hypothesis. Scientists believe nothing until they can prove it. The scientific method doesn’t just encourage relentless questioning of everything, it requires that. Scientists who simply believe what they are told aren’t scientists at all. They are dangerous poseurs. Suddenly we have a lot of those in this country.…

The only way to get to the truth is to keep asking questions.

Well, of course. This would seem elementary in America. But frighteningly, Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of Big Tech do not believe this.

The Tucker segment of his interview with Dr. Yan was posted on Facebook and quickly went viral to some 1.3 million people. And then the Facebook censorship hammer came down. When one clicked on the video with Tucker and Dr. Yan, one found this:

False Information: This post repeats information about COVID-19 that independent fact checkers say is false. See why.

Instagram did the same thing, and Twitter suspended Dr. Yan’s account entirely. Said Tucker the following night in discussing this latest Big Tech censorship — this one, one suspects, done to appease the Chinese Communist Party’s government:

Science requires an exchange of ideas, diversity of view to get to the truth.

Facebook doesn’t believe this. They believe in censorship. Censorship does not make us wiser, it does not make us better informed.

Let’s be clear. We are at an extremely dangerous moment in American history. Violence has erupted in one major American city after another. All of them run by liberals and liberalism for decades. One policeman or sheriff after another has been shot, with attacks on police stations and private businesses, many of the latter black-owned businesses.:snip:
