More Censorship: America’s Frontline Doctors Website Gets Shut Down
Written by Luis Miguel
Big Brother strikes again.
Dr. Simone Gold, the founder of America’s Frontline Doctors, whose viral press conference claiming the mainstream narrative surrounding the dangers of COVID-19 are based more on fear than on fact, announced on Tuesday that the organization’s website had been taken down by hosting provider and website builder Squarespace.
The move appears to be a form of punishment for the remarks made by healthcare professionals at the event, which included stating that the drug hydroxychloroquine, long praised by President Trump and numerous medical professionals as an effective treatment for coronavirus but frequently panned by the mainstream media, does indeed work.
The website removal also came after top social-media companies Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube (owned by Google) all purged the video from their platforms.
The screenshot of the message from Squarespace that Gold tweeted out claimed that America’s Frontline Doctors was engaged in activity that’s “false, fraudulent, inaccurate, or deceiving.”
The e-mail from Squarespace further argues that the provider reserves the right to suspend the organization’s account at any time for any reason.
As of the publication of this article, going to the website AmericasFrontLineDoctors.com no longer shows the organization’s content, but merely displays a brief message that reads “Website Expired: This account has expired. If you are the site owner, click below to login.”
Squarespace offers customers the use of pre-built website templates and drag-and-drop elements to create webpages, which were the tools on which America’s Frontline Doctors built their website.
While still up, the site read: “American life has fallen casualty to a massive disinformation campaign. We can speculate on how this has happened, and why it has continued, but the purpose of the inaugural White Coat Summit is to empower Americans to stop living in fear.”
The conference was attended by Representative Ralph Norman (R-S.C.). Prior to being removed, the broadcast had over 17 million views on Facebook, making it the most-watched video in the world on the platform on Monday afternoon.
Facebook claimed they “removed this video for sharing false information about cures and treatments for COVID-19.”
The video also reached one million views on Twitter’s Periscope service and 80,000 views on YouTube prior to being scrubbed from those networks.
In one part of the video, Dr. Stella Immanuel of Houston argued in favor of hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug touted by President Trump.
“The virus has a cure, it’s called hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and Zithromax,” she said. “You don’t need masks. There is a cure. I know they don’t want to open schools. No, you don’t need people to be locked down. There is prevention and there is a cure.”
The president retweeted the video. Donald Trump, Jr. also shared it and called it a “must-watch,” an action that got his Twitter account suspended for 12 hours.
In another portion of the conference, Dr. Mark McDonald of Los Angeles said the coronavirus fears being instilled in children in some cases rise to the level of abuse.
“In my view, this is child abuse,” McDonald stated, declaring that “we are training an entire generation of children to live in fear — to live in fear of people.”
“I have seen a rapid and substantial increase in emotional illness with all of the children in my practice. Every single one. Anxiety. Depression. Suicidal ideation. Bedwetting, Self-harm. Child abuse. Violence. Panic attacks. I could go on and on and on,” McDonald added.
Despite the setback to America’s Frontline Doctors, a number of Twitter users with skills in web development offered to help the organization get their website back up and secure it from future political targeting.
The combined effort against the conference, which now includes not only social-media platforms but a hosting provider, serves as an important lesson to patriots.
First, while it can be useful to be on these networks, we cannot allow ourselves to be dependent on them, as all of the large tech companies have been compromised and are active forces in the establishment’s plan to silence their opposition.
These companies were funded with billions of dollars of establishment capital. It was a brilliant plan to create these digital forums to have them become important centers of public discourse. Then, when everyone became dependent on them, those in charge began the work of censoring dissident voices.
Patriots must continue to build their own platforms, hosting their own websites that cannot be taken down on a whim and using alternative digital networks such as the search engine DuckDuckGo in place of Google and the video-sharing site BitChute in place of YouTube.
We cannot win the ideological fight so long as we continue to do so on their turf.
