January 18, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Following a September 2020 interview with LifeSite’s Jim hale, Dr. Leland Stillman this time speaks out against the “dark collusion of government actors … and corporations,” which is stifling dissent among medical doctors and scientists, as it pertains to pandemic policies.
Back in September, the young doctor had spoken out against forced vaccinations. Stillman had noted that a COVID-19 vaccine must not be made mandatory, and that forcing people to inject it only “serves certain special interests.”
In this new interview, he noted how several doctors are even being targeted and punished financially and personally if they do not obey the COVID “orthodoxy” of the medical and government authorities. Stillman described this suppression of dissent in the medical community as reaching “a level of totalitarianism that even Orwell and Huxley would have struggled to envision.”
Also, the young doctor connected the dots on this “dark collusion” between government officials, medical authorities, and tech corporations, tying in the massive censorship in recent months.
Especially with the lack of social connections and foot traffic due to lockdowns, small businesses and even individuals face a very serious threat of disappearing.
“If Google or Amazon can de-platform you, or if Shopify can shut down your online store front, then all of a sudden you could see just about everyone in society disappear from the public eye overnight, because they have an opinion that may contradict what the mainstream media narrative is.”
Moreover, Stillman said that throughout his entire education and experience as a medical doctor, the notion of lockdowns to solve a pandemic crisis was never a factor. “No one before COVID, that I know of, seriously considered lockdowns to be effective,” he stated.
Many small businesses are being forced to close temporarily or even permanently under the strain of a second wave of government-imposed COVID shutdowns.
This is totally and thoroughly wrong...especially when big business, government, and large segments of the professional world are totally insulated from the repercussions of the shutdowns.
Something drastic needs to be done now!
SIGN this urgent petition calling for state legislatures to cut the salaries of governors and mayors who are responsible for closing small businesses by enacting draconian COVID shutdown measures.
The bottom line is that the people imposing shutdown measures need to feel the bite of the restrictions they are imposing on other peoples' livelihoods so that they have a personal incentive to re-open their economies and make accommodation for the survival of small businesses.
Local restaurants, cafes, gyms, clothiers, bookshops, florists, and many more, are being forced to shut their doors, some forever.
Americans who have spent their entire lives building their business - and, taken all of the risk - stand to lose everything.
But, the following are all considered essential and never get shut down: lawyers, lobbyists, politicians, courts, big corporations, and the media...
And, to add insult to injury, some politicians who are imposing these shutdowns, like Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo, are actually getting huge pay raises starting in the new year. Cuomo's raise is $25,000 next year alone!
This is utterly scandalous! It is time to say enough is enough!
If small business owners are being CRUSHED by government COVID restrictions, the politicians responsible should also feel the BITE of those restrictions!
This is the only way to make the "political class" understand how devastating their shutdowns truly are to small business owners and their employees.
Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, supply millions of jobs to people across the country, and ironically provide the taxes used to fund the programs so loved by most of the governors and mayors.
Because of the nature of small and medium businesses, their owners and workers are on the frontlines of the COVID crisis.
They need to be rewarded for this bravery, not closed down.
Accommodation needs to be made for small businesses so that they can weather this storm and thrive after it has passed. These are businesses we all love using, and we want them to be there long after COVID is just a bad memory.
When this is all over, do we really want every coffee shop to be a Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts, or every restaurant to be a McDonald's?
The answer is not only "no," but "Heck, no!"
Therefore, governors and mayors need to be personally incentivized to do everything in their power to see that small and medium businesses can survive and thrive - AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.
That's why we're calling on state legislators to cut the salaries of all governors and mayors who are imposing draconian shutdowns where no accommodation is being made for small businesses.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition today!

He noted that quarantines were an old practice from the plague that was considered outdated, but that lockdowns come from prisons. Lockdowns are a punishment method in prisons, not a medical method of containing a disease.
Lastly, Stillman highlighted the distrust the public has towards policies executed by authorities, and how the pandemic has brought it to the light. He described a “division in American society between people who want to listen to a certain group of experts, who are not the experts,” and those who wish to dissent from those opinions.
