"Scientific" Journal Suggests That It Should Be a Federal Hate Crime to Criticize Anthony Fauci


By Natalie Winters at the National Pulse:

A scientific journal article authored by Professor Peter Hotez, a frequent guest on corporate media networks, called to "extend federal hate-crime protections" for scientists facing criticism from alleged "far-right extremists," including National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci.

Dr. Hotez, who himself has been funded by Anthony Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1993, offered the robust defense of scientists including Fauci and EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak in a recent paper: "Mounting Antiscience Aggression In The United States."

"There is a troubling new expansion of antiscience aggression in the United States. It's arising from far-right extremism," the paper, published in the peer-reviewed Public Library of Science (PLOS) Biology journal, begins.

Is PLOS reputable? Question for the scientists out there. I thought I've read crticism that the peer reviewing at the place is a bit... Easy Mode.

But let me know.

Either way, this asshole does work for the Gain-of-Function Deep State, funded by Fauci's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.


"A band of ultraconservative members of the US Congress and other public officials with far-right leanings are waging organized and seemingly well-coordinated attacks against prominent US biological scientists. In parallel, conservative news outlets repeatedly and purposefully promote disinformation designed to portray key American scientists as enemies," it reiterates.

...

Hotez even draws comparisons to the intentions of the Trump administration and its "America First" allies to those of Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin, Marxists and Leninists...

In response, Hotez calls for a public statement in defense of Fauci and other COVID-19 scientists from "President of the United States together with science leaders at the federal agencies" and even floats that "another possibility is to extend federal hate-crime protections."

His paper rails against the alleged "authoritarianism" of the right while simultaneously demanding that those who criticize Fauci be imprisoned.

Who the heck wrote this, AllahPundit?

Or the Chinese Ministry of Information?

Read the whole thing. He seems to want to prosecute Marjorie Taylor Greene for the hate crime of introducing the "Fire Fauci" Act. He pushes the idea that the lab leak theory is a conspiracy theory and that it's "sinister" to ask questions about it, even in a Congressional hearing.

37 PLoS will print just about anything, being all Open Access & all, with the article writers paying for the publication (not the readers). They still do peer review and have an acceptance process.

It is one of the better regarded OA journals, though.

Ultraconservative? In Washington? Who are they, exactly? I'd be fascinated to learn because as far as I know, even regular conservatives don't exist in that feculent swamp.

Also, its hilarious how insane this is. The basis of the scientific method is to attempt to falsify. Criticism is the very root the scientific approach. Anyone who says he's above criticism or that his theories aren't subject to falsification or who doesn't share his data or who says the science is settled (another laughable position on its own) may be many things, but he isn't a scientist.

55 Was just reading local news for information on coronavirus in Michigan. Latest lottery winners were announced yesterday for the vaccine lottery.

Seriously disturbing to read about a gentleman who survived a serious case of covid in February who gave in and got a vaccine because his daughter was concerned he would get Covid again. The lack of understanding basic immunity in the general public is so frustrating and it's infuriating that the politicians won't allow actual facts to be disseminated.

One of the hosts of CNBC this morning, the young guy who is terrified of covid, was arguing with Ted Cruz as to why Abbott is not mandating masks. He said that Texas was "not going to allow masks in schools", to which Cruz immediately corrected him that he was wrong, that anyone can wear a mask, but the Texas gov. is not going to force children to wear one. That slight of speak is what these leftist use to corrupt news, facts, and information.

I'm not a scientist. Never even stayed at a Holiday Inn. However, on an episode of the otherwise useless show Adam Ruins Everything, the host pointed out that there are a number of spurious "scientific" magazines which will print anything if you pay for it. The show proved it by placing their own nonsense article in a "peer-reviewed" journal.

But it remains a good reminder that the left has no argument other than "shut the fuck up or I KEEEEEEL YOU!!!!"

Then, as people trickled back, the building imposed a "mask mandate." I refused to wear it and ignored their increasingly hostile emails to me.

173 Is PLOS reputable? Question for the scientists out there.


Open access journals (like the PLOS journals, arXiv, and Elsevier's open-access journals) are more open (in that anyone can publish there, not just a member). They are listed as peer-reviewed (though take it with a salt lick). Most importantly, most open access journals are pay-to-print; that is, you can get your article printed if you're willing to pony up a few hundred to a few thousand dollars (depending on the level of prestige of both the platform and the journal, as well as the page count.

A closed-access journal (say, those of APA or IEEE) is harder to get an article into, with a much longer turnaround on an article (months to years). And the peer review is real and scourging. I've published in both spaces, and while the open access journals are nice...they're not the closed-access journals, no matter how much they'll tell you otherwise.

175 I am a bit puzzled as to why it exists as a profession in the general sense. I am not a doctor or an epidemiologist, but as near as I can tell, it is essentially applied statistics. The best applied statisticians in the world are insurance actuaries, and I suspect that they could - and would - do a far better job when they're needed.

That's the terminal madness, the final naked abandonment of any lingering threadbare pretense of being a scientist. Go after the man, and simply ignore whatever it is he's saying. Threaten him, destroy him, eviscerate him, smash him down into the ground, stamp on his face and somehow all will be well again."

197 "Is PLOS reputable? Question for the scientists out there. I thought I've read crticism that the peer reviewing at the place is a bit... Easy Mode."

You might be thinking of PLOS One, one of the journals under the suite of PLOS - IIRC, they tried some kind of crowd-sourced Interweb "peer review" at one point, but that's since changed back to traditional peer review within the last few years. From my limited experience, most of the data published in PLOS journals is at least okay, but as with all scientific data out there, you need to look at it and determine for yourself if it's alright/good/bad. The only PLOS journal I've had direct experience with is PLOS Pathogens, but the labs I've worked in haven't submitted anything to there for a while.

What these scientists are starting to do more and more though is use the "perspective" section to dribble out more of their left-wing nonsense as an Op-Ed. Scientific American, which at least isn't "American" anymore, wrote a similar thing from their editors as an admonition to vote against Trump in the 2020 election. I personally think this is at least unprofessional, but left-wing nonsense is a religion to a lot of academic profs

Recall that EHA President Daszak's letter (Calisher et al, 2019, "Statement in support of the scientists, public health professionals, and medical professionals of China combatting COVID-19") in The Lancet that said there was no way this came from a lab was pressed into print in a closed-access journal with all expedience.

251 On certain subjects at least (global warming, and now the virus, I guess) ... peer review is a close knit club, and if one wants their research reviews to go well, they will take care of their fellow researchers.

idk anything directly, but I have read that has become the Woke case for "Science". Fauci had a lot of control over grant money ... Kennedy was on with Bannon discussing the power framework ... obey the Fauci or thou shalt be cut off.

As with Pfizer when they revealed a 6 month booster would be needed ... Fauci told them to shut up, he did not approve for that info to be released ... have to bring the people along slowly, Fauci dictates that path of Noble Lies, to keep people in ignorance/submission.

252 There is no science behind "social distancing"
The last time I looked up the lefty take on Sweden, which didn't indulge in COVID mania, it was that less people in Sweden would have died if they'd done the same things as every other country.
The only way to look at the data though is that lock downs, mask mandates, and all the rest had no meaningful benefit, whatsoever.

254 231 There is no science behind "social distancing". There is no science to support their mask wearing. There is no science that says the vaccines are 100% effective or that antibodies from actually having Wuflu don't help. There is science behind multiple double blind studies showing that vitamin D is effective, as are HCQ and Ivermectin. But you can use double blind studies from other countries only in support of the vaccines.

Then we found out that NSF had decided to include inter alia race, sex, and geography as criteria for the awards. So if you were a black lesbian amputee from Wyoming who'd struggled through HS, they'd send a limousine for you.

265 "Reminds me of the laughable claims that Men of Science only care about The Science, and could never, ever be bought"

Yup, CS Lewis knocked that down way back in 1944 with The Inner Ring:

"...is merely one of a hundred Rings and snobbery therefore only one form of the longing to be inside. People who believe themselves to be free, and indeed are free, from snobbery, and who read satires on snobbery with tranquil superiority, may be devoured by the desire in another form. It may be the very intensity of their desire to enter some quite different Ring which renders them immune from the allurements of high life. An invitation from a duchess would be very cold comfort to a man smarting under the sense of exclusion from some artistic or communist coterie."

They conspired to do gain of function research, in China, to get around US law... even using US funding to do it.

Every death that happened because of said conspiracy, as it was a felony, becomes a Death that happened because of the commission of said felony, and thus becomes murder.

Also, you lose Sovereign immunity protections if you commit a felony.... making it so you can be sued for damages....

They have to cover this up, or not only may people go to jail, but you will see the biggest Tort in history.

315 The impact factor for PLOS is about 7, which would be very good for a hard science journal (top earth science journals are ~5 or so). However it's pretty mediocre for biology journals. Annals of Internal Medicine has a factor of about 25. This is the old "no bucks no Buck Rogers" effect. NIH gets about 20 bucks for every one that goes to NSF, the last time I looked.

Looking at the titles of papers published in PLOS, they seem to obsess about peer review issues more than actual science. One tip-off to me that this is a second or third tier journal is this statement from the journal:

"Portable peer review: We consider manuscripts on the basis of reviews received at other journals, working with Academic Editors to arbitrate these reports directly to avoid or minimize further peer-review."

This means that they are trolling for papers that strike out at more prestigious journals. They also brag about making editorial decisions quickly.

So, my overall impression of the journal is ... meh.

319 Sharyl Attkisson did a recent podcase ... suggested what some of us here said early on. What if instead of taking repeated small risk of this vaccination, healthy (especially young) people took the very low risk of getting Covid while healthy?

I think I suggested in the first month (we were comparing it to measles parties) ... if all healthy people were given a low dose of active C-19 virus, we'd have herd immunity quickly.

The current lowered risk (of covid) from getting a "vaccine" is good for those with comorbidities, but Dr. Malone (and others) say by giving it to everyone "into a pandemic", it actually enables the virus to adapt, and not become weaker as it normally would.

(idk details, but that is what they said ... as Sharyl states, they warned us this would happen as it has with other covids, and now it has happened, yet "experts" won't admit their errors)

Scientific journals. Activists and political types who have found a peer-reviewed article that supports their point of view often bark "peer-reviewed" as if it's a magic wand that puts the article above criticism.

There are a lot of peer-reviewed articles that are inadequate or just plain wrong. There is a lot of published work, notably in bioscience, that can't be replicated.

Not to mention good work suppressed by old boy network collusion and politics.

This political banner published in a 'scientific journal' is a sign of a degraded system.

322 You know the Novamax vaccine is not that far off from approval. And this is a traditional vaccine, not mRNA. One of the videos I watched today said it would be available by the end of August.

Consider this about HCQ and Ivermectin, they may be effective against a lot of other disease, including cancer. Now think how it would affect medical facilities and Big Pharma if there was a cheap cure for cancer.

323 Jewells, didn't he already have Covid?

Oh no. You should probably try to talk him out of it if so. It really screws up natural immunity.

Find Publius, he's been really doing great keeping up with this stuff.

I've heard some other morons mention it having surprising effects on stuff. Lyme disease was another one.

IIRC Africa (Africa!) banned it when the COVID panic hit. People were smuggling it in and there were drug busts same as meth and cocaine, except for Ivermectin.

325 Yes I know Africa is a sh*tload of individual nations, but I didn't want to write out all the names. Just go with it.

326 Supposedly China is getting clobbered by the Delta variant. They have Trump oters?

Hmmm...I wonder what changed. Because we were told how great the Chinese way was - they only had approximately 4000 deaths the first time around. Now the Delta variant is clobbering them?

Yeah, right. More lies.

327 That is what Sweden did. They protected those at risk but everyone else got on with their lives. No mandated masks or vaccines, no lockdowns. They have very few cases now, because they have true herd immunity.

328 Search for 2018 CDC influenza pandemic and you'll get the CDC stating outright that they don't do sh*t.

330 Volume 26, Number 5-May 2020
Policy Review
Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings-Personal Protective and Environmental Measures

"Although mechanistic studies support the potential effect of hand hygiene or face masks, evidence from 14 randomized controlled trials of these measures did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza.

...Our systematic review found no significant effect of face masks on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza."
