An episode of the Joe Rogan’s podcast featuring an interview with a virologist has been pulled from social media platforms like Twitter and YouTube.

Posted on New Years Eve, the episode featured Rogan speaking to Dr. Robert Malone, a US-based virologist who was also kicked from Twitter.

Dr Malone helped create the mRNA technology that ultimately became the basis for two of the most popular Covid-19 vaccines: Pfizer and Moderna.

During the three-hour episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience”, the scientist decided to compare today’s United States with Nazi Germany.

Dr Malone said he believed American society was developing a “mass-forming psychosis” similar to Germany in the 1920s and 1930s.

β€œIt was essentially a European intellectual inquiry into what happened in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s,” he said.

β€œA very smart, highly educated population, and they’ve gone mad. And how did this happen? The answer is mass training psychosis. When you have a society that has become decoupled from each other and has floating anxiety, in a way that things just don’t make sense. We cannot understand it. And then their attention is focused by a leader or a series of events on a small point, just like hypnosis. They literally become hypnotized and can be taken anywhere.

Dr Malone’s argument is that government-imposed vaccination mandates are “explicitly illegal” and he claimed there were supposed dangers from the Pfizer jab.

In a tweet Wednesday, the day before his account was suspended, the doctor – who used the handle @RWMaloneMD – wrote: β€œ6-month Pfizer data showing Pfizer’s Covid-19 inoculations are causing more diseases that they do not prevent. Plus, an overview of Pfizer’s test flaws in design and execution. ‘

Unsurprisingly, the The now-viral episode was pulled from YouTube after it was posted in its entirety by an account not affiliated with Rogan.

The podcaster no longer uploads full episodes to YouTube because they signed an exclusive deal with Spotify.

During the duration of the show, Rogan wondered why a virologist would want to prevent people from getting the Covid vaccine.

Dr Malone replied: β€œFor me, the reason is: because what is happening is not right. It destroys my profession, it destroys the practice of medicine all over the world, it destroys public health in medicine.

He continued, β€œI’m a vaccinologist. I spent 30 years developing a vaccine. A stupid amount of education to learn how to do it and what the rules are.

“And for me, I am personally offended to see my discipline being destroyed for no good reason except, apparently, financial incentives and – I don’t know – political cover.”

Despite his claims, Dr Malone cannot be considered the sole inventor of mRNA technology. He co-wrote an article on the technology in the 1980s, but Dr Katalin KarikΓ³ and Dr Drew Weissman are more often credited with creating it.

However, many like-minded Twitter users were angry with the removal of the doctor’s comments from the platform.

Despite what angry internet users would have you believe, the scientific credentials for all Covid-19 vaccines – including those based on mRNA – have long been certified at this point.

All vaccines used in the UK must be approved by the Independent Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).

The MHRA ensures that vaccines meet strict international standards for safety, quality and efficacy.

They have all undergone clinical trials involving thousands of people in the UK and around the world. Once a vaccine is approved, it is closely monitored to continue to ensure that it is safe and effective.

Imran Ahmed, director general of the Center for Countering Digital Hate, said online disinformation was “a very serious public health problem”.

He said: β€œPeople have died, and more are at greater risk of suffering from Covid, because they obtained their medical information from Facebook and other social media sites.

β€œThese platforms are chronically polluted because anti-vaccines have been allowed to dump toxic disinformation into people’s streams daily for years with impunity.

“Most people who haven’t been bitten are not what you might call ‘committed anti-vaccines’ – they are just hesitant to vaccinate because they have been deliberately and cynically targeted with a constant campaign of half-truths. , baseless conspiracy theories and outright lies.
