On January 2, 2023, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered a severe injury during the Bills v. Cincinnati Bengals game. Without skipping a beat, George Washington University professor of Medicine and Surgery, Interventional Cardiologist, CNN Medical Analyst, and arch-covidian Dr. Jonathan Reiner took to Twitter to diagnose Hamlin with an almost-unheard-of condition called commotio cordis:
He had not personally examined Hamlin, reviewed his medical records, did not know his medical history, or even bother to ask. His statement was the most unreliable of guesswork. Despite this, within seconds, the intranet was flooded with tweets seconding his guess, as well as with millions of newly-ordained untrained, uneducated civilian cardiological experts.
IRONICALLY (or not)….
As soon as people began debunking Dr. Reiner’s factually deficient diagnosis or raising countervailing theories – such as COVID-19 vaccine-induced myocarditis leading to heart attack – Dr. Reiner was the first, yet again, to Tweet his opinion, this time crucifying the curious for the exact same behavior:
LOOK AT THE TIME STAMPS. These Tweets are literally less than within two hours of each other. One is acceptable, the other isn’t.
DO NOT STAND FOR IT.
This is not Civility. This is not the Free Marketplace of Ideas, Civic Discourse, Freedom of Speech – “the indispensable condition of nearly every other form of freedom” – or even Freedom, at all. More importantly (now more than ever)….
THIS IS NOT ABOUT WINNING.
This is about the Scientific Method.
Believe it or not, I am not trying to be Right. I do not want to be Right. I want to be Wrong. I want you guys to prove me wrong. That all these years of studies + data + reports + anecdotes are not right. That there was something else going on. That it wasn’t the vaccine or booster or anything virus-related. I want someone to prove one of us Wrong. But one has, yet. So, until then, I don’t want to be lied to or gaslit and certainly not made to feel selfish / racist / homophobic / MAGA / c0n$p1r@c¥ theorist / anti-ANYTHING for:
- DOING MY OWN RESEARCH 📚🤓 [note: pre 2016 studies are crucial]
- ASKING QUESTIONS
- Calling people out on lies and hypocrisy.
- Speaking to REAL LIFE HUMANS
- with PERSONAL EXPERIENCE dealing with whatever I’m inquiring about &
- Drawing my OWN conclusions
THEN – & THIS IS THE 🔑🔑🔑 …
- SHARING this insight for INPUT + FEEDBACK.
THAT is the “Scientific Method.”
THAT is how this is supposed to work. Until it does, I’ll be here trying to figuring things out myself w the Honest sources I have bc those are the only ppl I Trust.
Wake me up when I’m Wrong OR Right.
All their lies collapse with the slightest evidentiary scrutiny.
