Not sure if this has been posted somewhere or not, maybe someone has already shared? But I thought it would have been a top post in weekend links and probably worth a post on it’s own. For anyone that hasn’t heard it yet I highly recommend setting aside 2 hours of quiet time to give this your full attention. It’s not groundbreaking stuff for people here, but it elaborates on points that have been made sporadically throughout the pandemic. Much more eloquent than I could ever put it and Dr. McCullough backs it up with evidence.
a lot of what he says is true, but a lot of it is also total bullshit
He made a bit of a fool of himself, with some of his overly confident statements
which is a shame, as it kind of discredits the rest of his (very factual) claims
Which parts are total bullshit?
its been a few days since i listened, but the one that sticks in my mind is where he was confident that there is no such thing as reinfection with covid
Complete bullshit, and obvious bullshit as people have constantly been reinfected with coronaviruses throughout history
Also, there is no such thing as absolutes in medicine (‘never” “always”)
Even rogan realises what he is saying is bullshit at that point
There are plenty of detailed takedowns of this interview on the internet if you want to read more
As I said it is unfortunate, because a lot of what he says is true
That’s one point and it may be valid. The problem is it’s so hard to get any hard data and everything is being obfuscated by politicians and media.
Funnily enough I was talking to a friend yesterday, all her family are still back in South Africa. She was telling me about how they are Doctors and have been infected by omicron and it’s pretty much life as usual there. But all of the children in the house are unvaxxed and have not caught the virus/tested positive. Their thoughts are that the kids already had one of the earlier variants. Anecdotal I know but interesting and relevant none the less.
Listening to the JRE interview I knew that their would be bed wetters that would scream black and blue how wrong McCullough is. All the while they wouldn’t provide any legitimate sources to back it up. That said for me it was the overall topic rather than any point in particular. Covid should be treated in home with the aim to keep people out of hospital, kids shouldn’t be getting vaccinated given the risk/reward etc etc.
not sure what point you are trying to make
He also claimed that there is no such thing as “asymptomatic” infection
That is either semantics or also bullshit, as obviously we can isolate covid from the nasopharynx of people with no symptoms
Its a real shame that people like mccullough and malone are given all this oxygen, because there are far more measured and credible people who are saying mostly the same things without the added bullshit on top
(like bhattcharya or whatever his name is, kulldorf and that british chick)
I guess those people don’t desperately want attention and publicity, but also don’t want the negative effects that would come with speaking out against orthodoxy
I sometimes also wonder if maybe mccullough and malone are given so much rope, because the powers that be realise that they will hang themselves and poison the well for all the other skeptics
classic CIA tactic
Its entirely possible, the point of opinion leaders like Rogan are so certain folks can get their preffered narrative out.
Specifically with Rogan, he is too popular for it to have been an accident.
Like how he became big, came out of nowhere on YouTube. If its YouTube, the algo definitely pushed him. And that is not cheap nor does it happen by accident.
yes controlled opposition/dissent
Like tucker carlson etc etc
really doubt it. come on, theyre not smart enough to pull something like this off.
rogan is overall a force for good.
Perhaps J Rogue is good at it, I do not see him as a controlled opposition.
Not that I closely follow him, he seems fairly consistent for a white-ish chap.
