Just when you thought the coronascam couldn’t get any stupider, along comes a new curveball.
Take that, conspiracy theorists! Now Trump has the ‘rona! So when your 74-year-old, obese, out-of-shape God Emperor dies of the COVID, even you crazy anti-maskers will swallow the COVID fear porn and submit to the Great Reset, right?
(The true believers aren’t worried, though. Apparently when you spell “well” with a capital I, it means you’re using 18-dimensional Candyland to actually win the presidential (s)election from your hospital bed . . . or something.)
But while the world was distracted by the latest round of “who’s got the cooties” they might have missed this headline:
You could be forgiven for having missed this little doozy when it dropped five weeks ago, but let’s take a moment to examine it, shall we?
The story focuses on Ronald B. Brown of the School of Public Health and Health Systems at the University of Waterloo, who published a paper in Cambridge Press’ Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness journal this past August arguing that Anthony Fauci’s testimony to Congress on March 11 of this year was not just misleading, but downright disastrous.
Long story short: Brown contends that Fauci’s testimony confused case fatality rate and infection fatality rate leading to the “miscalculation” that the novel coronavirus was ten times deadlier than the average flu.
Brown reached out to a number of media outlets about this, seemingly the biggest story of the year, but he only received one response. That response came from John C.A. Manley, an independent Canadian journalist fighting the mainstream COVID narrative at MuchAdoAboutCorona.ca. As Brown told Manley about his paper: “The manuscript cites the smoking-gun, documented evidence showing that the public’s overreaction to the coronavirus pandemic was based on the worst miscalculation in the history of humanity, in my opinion. My manuscript underwent an intensive peer-review process.”
