Joe Biden gave a truly bizarre answer to a reporter who asked him “What would be misinformation? What would be your message to platforms like facebook?”
REPORTER: “What’s your message to platforms like Facebook?”
BIDEN: "They’re killing people. The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated, and they’re killing people.”

Biden responds “They’re killing people… The only pandemic we have is among the unvaccinated, and they’re killing people.”
What the hell kind of logic is this? This is how fascism begins!
Biden is actually accusing the unvaccinated of killing people. He’s accusing them of murder because they refuse to get the jab. So what’s next? Is he going to force people to take the vaccine to stop the ‘killing’? I mean if what he says is true, then what is he going to do about it ultimately?
His statement is absolutely preposterous, but it’s this kind of absurd hyperbole that ends up with people getting forced to do something that they don’t want to do.
And let me remind you, it is not unreasonable for someone to believe the vaccines aren’t trustworthy. They were rushed through the FDA and we are still learning things about them every day. If Biden wants people to truly trust the vaccines and get the jab, he should shut his damn mouth and focus on getting full FDA approval for them. But instead, he wants to guilt people into getting them by accusing them of murder.
Also, what does he expect Facebook to do about the unvaccinated? Obviously his statement is just more justification for what his administration is doing, which is to censor and silence people’s right to free speech on social media.
The Biden administration is now putting this fascistic cancel culture into overdrive and the media is collectively yawning at this tyranny. But swap out Biden for Trump and you’d have a full-on scandal-geddon, with many calls to have him removed from office.
UPDATE: I see that some are translating Biden’s bizarre remarks to mean that Facebook is the one killing people. That’s obviously not how I took his remarks, but assuming this is the right interpretation of his comments, I’d say it’s just as problematic. Because it would mean that Biden and his administration are putting immense pressure on these platforms into doing their bidding, to censor and silence people.
One can accuse Facebook of many things, but accusing them of killing people because they don’t censor enough ‘misinformation’ is just as absurd as accusing the unvaccinated of killing people.
Whichever interpretation you want to choose is fine with me. As usual, Biden isn’t very clear when he speaks off the cuff.
