‘Censorship posed a severe threat to the open discussion of facts’

December 21, 2022

SILENCING DISSENT: ” I think of the characteristic features of the Covid-19 pandemic was censorship and disinformation from governments. The people (of the world) have a right to know what happened; to know which decisions were taken.” Rob Roos, Dutch MEP on the European Covid-19 Pandemic committee.

 

 

 

 

A DUTCH MEP invited Twitter owner Elon Musk to discuss the revelations of censorship that he revealed took place under the social media platform’s previous ownership.

Rob Roos is a member of the special committee on the Covid-19 Pandemic within the European Parliament and is also a member of the European Conservative and Reformist Group that believes in safeguarding its citizens and borders whilst also respecting the sovereignty and rights of EU member states.

Mr Roos caught the world’s attention after he asked Janine Small, Pfizer’s president of international markets, on 22 October on a session of the Parliamentary committee, whether the Covid-19 vaccine had been tested for transmission for it was rolled out on the global public.

‘No it wasn’t tested for transmission before the roll out’

“Regarding the question around, um, did we know about stopping the immunisation [sic] before it entered the market? No, heh,” she said.

“Uh, these, um, you know, we had to really move at the speed of science to really understand what is taking place in the market, and from that point of view we had to do everything at risk.”

Following this admission, Mr Roos claimed it called into question everything that had been done across Europe to force its citizens to have vaccine passports so that they could use public transport to get around the Continent as well as other coercive measures the EU placed on its citizens.

‘MSM didn’t report exchange as they were complicit in censorship’

Mr Roos called on Mr Musk to reveal all the Twitter files revealing the communications between the Big Tech companies and politicians with his scrutiny committee that encouraged the censorship he refers to below.

The Big Tech companies and Mainstream Media have not reported any of this information in detail due to their complicity in the censorship.

Mr Roos said: “Many of my colleagues would like to look into disinformation spread during Covid-19. I agree, but not from the same angle.

‘Feature of pandemic was Government misinformation’

“I think of the characteristic features of the Covid-19 pandemic was censorship and disinformation from governments.

“Disinformation about the danger of the virus. Disinformation about the supposed benefits of lockdowns and restrictions. Disinformation about the functioning of the vaccine.

“Big Tech companies played a crucial role in this. They ruthlessly censored information, deleted accounts of dissenting scientists and shadow-banned critical voices.

“The people (of the world) have a right to know what happened; to know which decisions were taken.

‘Please share your findings with our European committee’

“I deeply admire your courage in providing the much-needed transparency into Twitter’s decisions at the time.

“And I would therefore like to invite you to share your analysis of your findings to a European Parliament hearing.

“In times of crisis we how robust our democracy truly is. During the Covid-19 Pandemic censorship posed a severe threat the open discussion of facts that we should have in a democracy. We should learn from this.

“With your knowledge, I believe you can have an important role in strengthening our democracy and our fundamental rights.

“As you always say, ‘Power to the people’. I look forward to speaking with you – either virtually or in real life.”
