(Reclaim The Net) – Dr. Robert Malone, an expert in mRNA technology and a vocal COVID vaccines critic who has been consistently censored by Big Tech, is suing the Washington Post for defamation. The lawsuit alleges that the news outlet made defamatory statements against him in an article published on January 24.
The article claimed that Malone spread “misinformation” in a speech where he said the vaccines “are not working” against the omicron variant of COVID-19. As evidence the statement was false, the Post cited a paper by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that found that booster shots were protecting people against severe disease.
The Post omitted the part where Malone said that vaccines “do not prevent omicron infection, viral replication, or spread to others.”
Speaking to The Epoch Times, Malone noted that he had “said nothing about disease and death at that point in time.” He went on to accuse the Post of selective misquoting and using the CDC study to counter a claim he never made.
The Epoch Times obtained details of an interview between the article’s writer, Timothy Bella, and Malone before the Post article was written. Bella told Malone, “I have respect for you and your body of work,” and that he was hoping to shadow the doctor during his stay in Washington, D.C., where he gave a speech at a protest against COVID mandates.
Malone initially sent a notice to the Post threatening legal action if the article was not removed or the defamatory statements retracted. When the outlet refused, he filed a lawsuit at a federal court in Virginia.
With kids in schools across America being used as pawns to advance the radical left's woke political agenda, the Minneapolis Teachers Union has taken this effort to a new low, now blatantly targeting white teachers specifically because of the color of their skin.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to Minneapolis Federation of Teachers (MFT), along with the leaders of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and Minneapolis Public Schools, expressing your disgust with the union's illegal, unconstitutional embrace of reverse racism in their bargaining practices!
Thirty-thousand students were forced out of the classroom this past spring when the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers went on a strike for nearly three weeks, demanding higher pay, reduced class sizes, and increased diversity in hiring practices, among other things.
The strike finally came to an end on March 25th when the union and Minneapolis Public Schools reached a tentative new contract agreement addressing many of the members' concerns, but one particular provision was eventually identified for its inherently problematic embrace of blatant, race-based discrimination...
The new agreement stipulates that, going forward, white teachers will be LAID OFF first as a means to advance the liberal MFT's "diversity" agenda.
LEO TERRELL on Minneapolis teachers union agreement that stipulates white teachers would be laid off first: "It's racist and should be invalidated immediately." pic.twitter.com/DFjRFOwLdj— Martin Golobic (@golobicm) August 16, 2022
This plan completely disregards attributes such as seniority, qualifications, or job performance, and, instead, values teachers' general worthiness to sustain their livelihood based on their skin color alone -- a glaringly racist, discriminatory practice that goes hand-in-hand with the woke left's agenda of hate, division, and indoctrination in our children's schools.
Not only is this alarmingly regressive, it is also illegal AND unconstitutional.
The MFT's agreement with Minneapolis Public Schools is a clear violation of both Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (which "prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin") and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (which requires all citizens to be treated equally under the law, and remain free from discriminatory policies that seek to harm them based on personal characteristics like race).
But if a major teachers union can somehow justify and openly endorse such a bold-faced transgression against a specific race without consequence, anyone can (and eventually will) try to do the same, and it's only a matter of time until a regressive racial policy like this affects YOU.
While the MFT's latest move may be racist towards white teachers, specifically, it could ultimately prove a bellwether for similar policies in other cities and states that may seek to discriminate against those of other races, as well.
No American (be they a teacher, or anything else) should be judged by such attributes; rather, it is the content of their character, and, in this case, their professional abilities, qualifications, and experience, that should determine their value in the workplace.
Anything less would be a grave injustice, but that's exactly what liberal teachers unions like the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers are attempting to do.
This is not only a dangerous precedent to set, but a patently un-American one, and it's time for men and women of all races, in every corner of our country, to take a stand and say "ENOUGH'S ENOUGH!"
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to the MFT, AFT, and Minneapolis Public Schools expressing your opposition to their racist, un-American agreement targeting white teachers simply for being white, and let them know. that you stand against ALL forms of woke racism in education and the workplace!
This agreement is a slap in the face to everything America is all about, and harkens back to a much darker period in our history which we should've turned away from a long time ago.
But with so-called "progressives" more concerned with being "woke" than upholding core American values, no workplace -- not even our schools -- is safe for anyone.
Let the MFT, AFT, and Minneapolis Public Schools know that the American people oppose their attempts to divide us further by race, and that woke radicalism has no place in Minneapolis classrooms, or any American classroom!
According to the lawsuit, the article made ten defamatory statements against Malone, including that he has been “discredited,” his claims are “not only wrong, but also dangerous,” and that he “repeated falsehoods that have garnered him legions of followers.”
A copy of the complaint can be found here.
“The qualities WaPo [The Washington Post] disparaged – Dr. Malone’s honesty, veracity, integrity, competence, judgment, morals, and ethics as a licensed medical doctor and scientist – are peculiarly valuable to Dr. Malone and are absolutely necessary in the practice and profession of any medical doctor and scientist,” the suit reads.
Continuing, the lawsuit states that “WaPo ascribes to Dr. Malone conduct, characteristics, and conditions, including fraud, disinformation, misinformation, deception, and dishonesty, that would adversely affect his fitness to be a medical professional and to conduct the business of a medical doctor.”
“Dr. Malone’s statements concerning COVID-19 and the purported ‘vaccines’ were 100% factually accurate. He has never committed fraud on [sic] engaged in any medical disinformation or misinformation. Further, the so-called ‘vaccines’ do not work, as is abundantly clear from both the scientific and anecdotal evidence to date,” the document also says.
Dr. Malone is also currently involved in a lawsuit against Twitter over its censorship.
