Back in the day, the family sitcom “Happy Days” was accused of “jumping the shark” when one of its main characters, Fonzie, literally jumped a shark on water skis.
The phrase became a euphemism for gimmickry in service to keeping ahold of public attention.
Twitter, it seems, has now jumped the shark.
The social media giant has permanently suspended the account of Dr. Robert Malone.
Malone’s offense: spreading “misinformation” about COVID-19.
But unlike the rube’s Twitter usually seeks to silence, Malone is a science guy. In fact, he’s actually a researcher and credited collaborating founder of the mRNA technology that is the basis of the vaccines that the Biden administration and other liberals claim is our only path out of the pandemic.
“We all knew it would happen eventually,” Malone wrote on his Substack page, according to the Times.
“Over a half million followers gone in a blink of an eye. That means I must have been on the mark, so to speak,” Malone wrote on Wednesday.
“Over the target. It also means we lost a critical component in our fight to stop these vaccines being mandated for children and to stop the corruption in our governments, as well as the medical-industrial complex and pharmaceutical industries.”
On his Substack page, Malone posted a meme of a photo of himself with the caption: “The Thought Police said, ‘Looks like you have too much to think!’”
Malone told the Times he was banned without warning or given a cause. Twitter declined to comment on Malone’s exile, at the time of which he claimed more than 500,000 followers.
According to the report, Twitter told Malone that he was stifled for “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information” about COVID-19.
“You may not use Twitter’s services to share false or misleading information about COVID-19 which may lead to harm,” Twitter told him.
The Times noted that Malone has publicly said natural immunity may confer more protection than the allegedly “durable” vaccines.
A hostile profile of Malone in the left-wing Atlantic magazine four months ago noted that in interviews he has said the public doesn’t have sufficient information to decide on whether to get a vaccine, criticized incentives for vaccines as unethical, maintained that there wasn’t enough research on how vaccines may affect women’s reproductive systems, and said they should not be given to anyone under age 18.
The interesting thing about Malone’s ban is that his critics accept at face value the assertions of the very forces that profit handsomely from each shot given, and claim he’s wrong about the long-term effects of vaccines, especially on children, when we’ve only been vaccinating people for a year, and children for just a few weeks.
