- U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) held a panel discussion on Capitol Hill on Monday called “COVID 19: A Second Opinion.”
- Sen. Johnson hosted s group of world-renowned doctors and medical experts who provided a “different perspective on the global pandemic response,” the senator’s website says.
- The panel discussed the “current state of knowledge of early and hospital treatment, vaccine efficacy and safety, what went right, what went wrong, what should be done now, and what needs to be addressed long term,” the site goes on.
- They also discussed “censorship from Big Tech and the mainstream media, pandemic response effect on children, and vaccine mandate impact on worker shortage.”
- After just 24 hours past the panel’s conclusion, the video had more than three-quarters of a million views on Rumble, according to The Federalist.
- “The human toll resulting from economic shutdowns is incalculable,” Johnson stated. “The erosion of freedom and growing divisions within society, exacerbated by vaccine mandates, should concern us all.”
- “Today is about getting that long-overdue second opinion,” Johnson went on to say.
- Notably, Attorney Thomas Renz revealed government whistleblowers willing to put their name on the record who said there is “substantial data” of miscarriages increasing by 300% over a five-year average, as well as an almost 300% increase in cancer and over a 1,000% increase in neurological issues among government employees who received the Covid-19 vaccine.
- “Our soldiers are being experimented on, injured, and sometimes possibly killed,” said Renz.
- The panel also discussed vaccine injuries, preventable deaths, and new data showing Covid-19 vaccines could be causing “vaccine-enhanced diseases,” The Defender reports.
- Johnson’s office invited prominent government figures to the panel, including Rochelle Walensky, Anthony Fauci, Francis Collins, and Jeff Zients, but none of them showed up.
- Discussion begins just after the 40-minute mark in the video below.
WATCH THE FULL PANEL DISCUSSION:
WHAT JOHNSON SAID:
“Public health officials pursued a one-size-fits-all response that relied heavily on creating a state of fear to ensure compliance,” Johnson stated, as he pointed out that Covid-19 was discovered more than two full years ago. “They also kept moving the goalposts. For example, we went from a two-week shutdown to flatten the curve to zero Covid, from masks weren’t necessary to a single mask wasn’t adequate, from a vaccine that would prevent infection to a vaccine that would reduce the severity of the disease. And as goalposts were moving, different viewpoints were being crushed.”

- Senator Johnson has been using Rumble since being censored five times on Google-owned YouTube, Federalist points out.
- In February 2021, YouTube first censored Johnson’s account by removing videos of sworn testimony from Kory, one of Monday’s panelists, about early treatments for Covid-19.
- A few months later, YouTube again suspended the senator’s account for a week for his own remarks on early Covid treatment.
- Then in November, YouTube suspended Johnson’s channel for another week after hosting a vaccine injury panel, labeling it “COVID misinformation.”
- Johnson has been censored by the same tech giant two other times, Federalist reports.
