OCA has been forced to censor what we put out over Facebook and other Silicon Valley platforms such as YouTube and Twitter ever since FB in 2020 threatened to cut us off from our two million social media followers (on the OCA and Millions Against Monsanto FB pages). At the same time Senator Elizabeth Warren threatened Amazon with crippling legislation unless they depressed sales of my best-selling book with Dr. Mercola, The Truth About COVID-19. In this climate of government censorship, Barnes and Noble and other bookstores refused to carry our book, which has nonetheless sold over 350,000 copies.
If you subscribe to Google’s Daily News Alert on the Organic Consumers Association, what you get very day in your email box is a lying, slanderous post by the Genetic Literacy Project, a front group for Monsanto and the genetic engineering industry attacking OCA and our allies. Look us up on the industry-controlled Wikipedia site and what you get is more slander and misinformation.
Despite the official censorship, OCA puts out a non-censored edition of Organic Bytes to our 300,000 subscribers like yourself every week. In addition we post numerous articles on our website “newsfeed every day, while airing our non-censored videos and podcasts on Rokfin, a free speech channel. But obviously OCA is not the only truth-telling/activist organization regularly threatened, slandered, and censored.
As Reclaim the Net reports: “The World Health Organization (WHO), an unelected health agency that was given sweeping censorship powers during the COVID-19 pandemic, has called for all social media platforms to work with it to ‘prevent and counter’ monkeypox ‘misinformation’ and ‘disinformation.’
During a COVID-19 press briefing, WHO Director-General, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, claimed that ‘stigma and discrimination can be as dangerous as any virus, and can fuel the outbreak.’
He continued by invoking so-called COVID-19 misinformation and disinformation and urged ‘all social media platforms, tech companies, and news organizations to work with us to prevent and counter harmful information.’
While Dr. Tedros didn’t specify which statements he wanted Big Tech to suppress under his proposed monkeypox misinformation censorship plan, numerous media outlets have complained that those who call monkeypox a “gay disease” or frame monkeypox as “exclusively affecting men who have sex with men” are spreading misinformation.
Tedros didn’t go as far as calling these statements misinformation but he did follow up his call for the censorship of monkeypox misinformation by discussing monkeypox cases and transmission.
‘Although 98% of cases so far are among men who have sex with men, anyone exposed can get monkeypox, which is why WHO recommends that countries take action to reduce the risk of transmission to other vulnerable groups, including children, pregnant women, and those who are immunosuppressed,’ Dr. Tedros said. ‘In addition to transmission through sexual contact, monkeypox can be spread in households through close contact between people, such as hugging and kissing, and on contaminated towels or bedding.’ “
