Twitter has come under fire after its fact-checkers added a ‘misleading’ label to an obituary about a young American mother who died after contracting a blood-clotting disease caused by the Covid-19 vaccine.
Twitter user Kelly Bee shared the obituary for Jessica Berg Wilson with the caption ‘an “exceptionally healthy and vibrant 37-year-old young mother with no underlying health conditions,” passed away from COVID Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia. She did not want to get vaccinated.’
Twitter’s team of censors immediately sprung into action and flagged the tweet as ‘misleading’ with a link to an article on ‘why health officials consider COVID-19 vaccines safe for most people.’ The tweet was also shadow banned – meaning it could not be seen or shared by other users.
Wilson, a 37-year-old mother-of-two, tragically died on September 7 of Vaccine-Induced Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia, a blood disease in which clots form throughout the body, destroying platelets and preventing the blood from reaching vital organs.
Dailymail.co.uk reports: Most critics were disgusted that Twitter was ‘censoring’ an obituary and reacting by encouraging their followers to help it go viral despite the company’s alert. Kelly Bee posted it Friday and Twitter has since removed the ‘misleading’ label and lifted the shadowban. The tweet garnered 7,193 quote tweets, 4,167 retweets, and 4,222 likes as of Sunday night.
After posting it Friday, Kelly Bee followed up with another tweet and wrote, ‘Twitter has shadow-banned this obituary for being ‘misleading.’ It’s not. Please RT, so this BS backfires on them.’
Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy tweeted the obituary with the caption, ‘For [on Twitter] we are not afraid to follow the truth wherever it may lead,’ unless of course, it contradicts what Dr. Fauci or the enlightened government and tech overlords say you must do for your healthcare… #HealthcareFreedom.’
Sebastian Gorka, who served in the Department of Defense under former President Donald Trump, tagged Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a post asking what about the obituary is misleading. He wrote, ‘Hey @jack, Jessica was healthy and died. Why are you censoring that fact as ‘misleading??’ ‘
A number of conservative bloggers also retweeted the obituary, including Ben Domenech, a writer for The Federalist, who wrote, ‘Who @Twitter decided it was okay to say an OBITUARY is ‘misleading’?’
Sean Davis, also of The Federalist, wrote, ‘Twitter is now censoring obituaries.’
Tyler Cardon, the CEO of Blaze Media, tweeted it with the caption, ‘There is nothing inaccurate or misleading about this Tweet, but Twitter wants you to believe there is.’
Outspoken conservative actress Gina Carano shared the obituary and tweeted, ‘When is enough going to be enough? The vaccine is obviously not for everyone. Check the [Vaccine Adverse Event Recording System] report. I know someone who passed away from the vaccine as well. Healthy 56-year-old woman. The vaccine took her out in 3 days. These Biden mandates are murdering these people.’
Carano referenced the VAERS, a government website that allows users to share any side effects they’ve experienced after getting vaccinated.
Another Twitter user named Penny, whose bio simply reads ‘anti-Communist,’ shared the tweet with the caption, ‘To flag obits as misinformation is a new low, even for Twitter.’ And Twitter user Brian, whose bio lists that he’s a law student, tweeted the obituary with the caption, ‘The social media censors won’t let you retweet the original tweet. Let’s make this tweet go viral.’
Jessica Berg Wilson’s greatest goal in life, according to the obituary, was to ‘be the best mother possible to her daughters Bridget, 5, and Clara, 3.
‘Nothing would stand in her way to be present in their lives,’ it reads. ‘During the last weeks of her life, however, the world turned dark with heavy-handed vaccine mandates. Local and state governments were determined to strip away her right to consult her wisdom and enjoy her freedom. She had been vehemently opposed to taking the vaccine, knowing she was in good health and of a young age and thus not at risk for serious illness. In her mind, the known and unknown risks of the unproven vaccine were more of a threat.’
The obituary continues to disparage government vaccine mandates as leading to Berg Wilson’s death, stating, ‘But, slowly, day by day, her freedom to choose was stripped away. Her passion to be actively involved in her children’s education—which included being a Room Mom—was, once again, blocked by government mandate.
Ultimately, those who closed doors and separated mothers from their children prevailed. It cost Jessica her life. It cost her children the loving embrace of their caring mother. And it cost her husband the sacred love of his devoted wife. It cost God’s Kingdom on earth a very special soul who was just making her love felt in the hearts of so many.’
In lieu of flowers, Berg Wilson’s family requested that those mourning her donate to the Sacred Heart Shelter for Families.
Greece imposes $114 monthly fine on unvaccinated people over 60
Residents in Greece over 60 years old will have to undergo mandatory vaccinations against coronavirus or face monthly 100-euro ($114) fines beginning next year, the prime minister announced Tuesday, declaring the country’s first general inoculation mandate.
The Greek government decided upon the measure in response to a surge in new daily infections and the emergence of the omicron variant. It will take effect on Jan. 16 and the fines will be added to tax bills, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis said in a televised statement.
Greece’s overall COVID-19 death toll exceeded 18,000 this week with confirmed new infections at high levels. Roughly a quarter of the country’s adult population remains unvaccinated.
Vaccination mandates were introduced over the summer for health care workers and fire service rescuers in Greece, with those failing to comply being suspended from their jobs indefinitely without pay.
The government has ruled out imposing new lockdowns but says it is targeting the elderly with tougher restrictions to protect the public health service as ICU occupancy is near capacity nationwide.
“The new omicron variant is a concern for us and means we must be vigilant,” Mitsotakis said.
“Unfortunately, of the 580,000 unvaccinated of our fellow citizens over the age of 60, only 60,000 set up appointments to get vaccinated in November,” he said. “But it is mainly people over 60 who require hospital treatment and sadly lose their life. These deaths are unnecessary.”
The opposition left-wing Syriza party accused the center-right government of shifting the responsibility of battling the virus onto ordinary Greeks and “targeting people over 60 … with punitive and financially debilitating measures that haven’t been implemented anywhere else in the world.”
Doctor on OMICRON: “Looking at the the mildness of the symptoms, there is no reason for panicking, as we don’t see severely ill patients”
“The hype that’s been created out there in the media & worldwide doesn’t correlate with the clinical picture”
Fauci says ‘we’re going to have to start living with COVID’
“I don’t think we’re going to eradicate it.”
Chief White House medical adviser Anthony Fauci said in an interview that aired Sunday that he believes people will have to begin “living with COVID,” expressing doubt that the virus will be eradicated.
Speaking to host Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Fauci touched on previous remarks in which he said he would like to see daily infections fall below 10,000 in order for the U.S. to be able to “live with COVID.” Brennan noted that current COVID-19 infection rates are now approaching 80,000 per day.
Fauci said this current infection level is “unacceptable.”
“I mean, we’ve heard people say, understandably, they’re trying to look for a metric to give to the public that we’re going to have to start living with COVID. I believe that’s the case because I don’t think we’re going to eradicate it. We’ve only eradicated one infection of mankind, and that’s smallpox. I don’t think we’re even going to eliminate it,” the infectious diseases expert said.
Fauci said illnesses such as malaria, polio and measles have become nearly nonexistent through “a very, very, very intensive vaccine campaign.”
Brennan also asked Fauci if the U.S. was currently experiencing a fifth wave of COVID-19 cases.
“Well, we certainly have the potential to go into a fifth wave. And the fifth wave, or the magnitude of any increase, if you want to call it that it, will turn into a wave, will really be dependent upon what we do in the next few weeks to a couple of months,” said Fauci.
He added that the millions of eligible U.S. residents who have not gotten vaccinated, compounded with those who are beginning to experience waning immunity from their initial doses, have resulted in a diminished level of community immunity.
