The people who told everyone to follow the science when they were not following the science are back, this time accusing misinformation – the left’s new buzzword for free speech – of being the leading cause of death in America. Of course, they have no evidence to back the suggestion.
The appointees of the Biden regime have made quite the track record of entertainment by failing to “hide their crazy” as the saying goes. Indeed, the countless suppositories of wisdom Biden’s minions have given us seem sufficient to bring down even the most well-run civilization in history. More recently, his appointee to the FDA gave the world yet another gem of a revelation.
According to Summit News, FDA Cheif Robert Califf blew everyone’s minds during a recent interview he had with CNN’s Pamela Brown, where he reiterated his truth which he had originally mentioned at a Texas health conference the month prior during which he sincerely claimed that online misinformation constitutes the leading cause of death.
Initial expectations of many most likely would have been that Califf would at least be able to massage statistics and connect enough recorded deaths to supposed online misinformation, no matter how loosely the connection would have been. Sadly for Califf’s reputation and people’s faith in humanity, Califf simply admitted that there was “no way to quantify this” and brazenly went on to mention actual leading causes of death such as heart disease and cancer.
One attempt Califf made to salvage the situation was to mention “an erosion of life expectancy,” that America has been experiencing over the better part of the past decade, still not even trying to sloppily connect it to online misinformation. Califf also failed to opine about the possibility that this drop in life expectancy, indeed completely unique to America amongst the First World, could possibly be related to how the food Americans consume on a daily basis is a lot less genuinely food compared to most other developed countries.
With regards to the boogeyman of the last two years, Califf claimed that with universally available inoculations across the country that “almost no one in this country should be dying from COVID,” before going on to explain that there was also a “reduction in life expectancy from common diseases like heart disease.”
“But somehow … the reliable, truthful messages are not getting across,” he said, adding, “And it’s being washed down by a lot of misinformation, which is leading people to make bad choices that are unfortunate for their health.”
At any rate, Califf was able to leave the interview scoff-free despite his failure to substantiate his claim that “online misinformation” was causing excess deaths from heart disease, largely because the CNN host absent-mindedly forgot to challenge him on that point.
