(Oct. 7, 2022) — At some point between Thursday night and early Friday morning, Twitter suspended cardiologist and internist Dr. Peter A. McCullough‘s account on which he posted daily news about COVID-19, particularly the “vaccine” program begun in mid-December 2020.
Since January 2021, McCullough has spoken out about what he sees as the dangers of the vaccine products, which in one clinical trial showed 1,223 deaths in a 90-day period not reported publicly at the time.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) maintains the vaccines are “safe and effective” despite what many medical observers, including McCullough, saw as alarming complications with a causal relationship to vaccination even prior to the release of Pfizer documents revealing the above-cited deaths and other adverse events reported by clinical trial enrollees.
Strokes, blood clots, myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle), seizures, tremors, fainting, loss of vision, loss of limbs and tachycardia have been reported after vaccination, including from abroad, have been reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS).
Despite more recent admissions that the vaccines can cause serious side effects, the CDC maintains that “The known risks of COVID-19 illness and its related, possibly severe complications, such as long-term health problems, hospitalization, and even death, far outweigh the potential risks of having a rare adverse reaction to vaccination, including the possible risk of myocarditis or pericarditis.”
McCullough’s suspension, the first and only of his yearlong tenure on the platform, was the topic of discussion among colleagues and followers who respect him as an outspoken advocate of medical ethics and informed consent.
On his Substack just after 9:00 p.m. PDT Thursday, entrepreneur Steve Kirsch, founder of the Vaccine Safety Research Foundation (VSRF) and strong opponent of vaccine mandates and the government’s “safe-and-effective” narrative, welcomed McCullough to “Twitter heaven.”
“It literally couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy,” Kirsch wrote. “Peter is one of the nicest people I know, one of the smartest, and one of the most well respected, one of the most published people in medicine, and one of the most cited (he has an h-index of 116).
“But Twitter knows more about medicine than Dr. McCullough so they are in a position to be the judge, jury, and executioner.
“I’m sure Twitter employees are celebrating how they are saving lives by deplatforming one of the most respected people in medicine.”
As Kirsch noted, McCullough is widely-published, both at the National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine and in other medical journals.
McCullough is co-author of the book, “The Courage to Face COVID-19” with crime writer John Leake and hosts a weekly radio show on medical issues on “America Out Loud.” For his advocacy of early treatment for the coronavirus, he has been stripped of the editorship of two medical journals and of professorships at two Texas universities. He has also faced a possible loss of his medical accreditation from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).
McCullough’s tweets almost always referenced findings in newly-published research papers drawing connections between the COVID-19 vaccines and various adverse events. His commentary can be found at TruthSocial and Gab, among others.
According to McCullough surrogate Carolina Bonita on Gab Thursday, McCullough had “half a million followers” on Twitter prior to his suspension.
At one point McCullough had tweeted that if he were ever deplatformed, Bonita would be posting his updates.
