Influential holistic practitioner Dr. Joseph Mercola has announced he will begin voluntarily deleting content from his website under the weight of attacks from the Joe Biden regime.
Having been viciously maligned by the Biden administration and lapdog mainstream media over the past few months for countering the established Covid-19 narrative, “Dr. Mercola” on Tuesday declared his website is succumbing to censorship as free speech appears to be in its death throes.
“I am beyond thrilled that there are tens of millions of people who have benefitted from what I have shared over the years,” Mercola said in a letter disseminated Wednesday announcing the deletion of over 15,000 health-related articles.
“These were the times when many of the views I presented were criticized, but that’s to be expected. That was one of the great freedoms we enjoyed. We could have different views and we could speak openly about these views without fear of retribution.”
“But we are now in a different time. A much darker time. The silence of free speech is now deafening.”
Mercola, who’s been dubbed one of the Disinformation Dozen by anti-hate groups for spouting so-called anti-vaccine rhetoric, says while free speech and healthy debate was once supported, that’s no longer the case.
“Not only is blatant censorship tolerated, it is being encouraged by the very people who were to be entrusted with protecting our freedom of speech,” he says.
Without naming him, Mercola says Joe Biden is using the full-weight of the federal government to destroy his reputation.
“It is easy to dismiss the media pawns, but the most powerful individual on the planet has targeted me as his primary obstacle that must be removed,” Mercola stated. “Every three letter agency is at his disposal, and the executive powers have grown beyond what an individual American’s rights can protect against.”
“Never in my life, would I believe the sitting President of the United States call out 12 Americans in a McCarthyism-like attack in the United States. As you are aware, I was placed at the top of this list,” Mercola continued.
During a press conference last month, Biden accused Mercola and the rest of the Disinfo Dozen of “killing people” by spreading misinformation.
As a result of the savage targeting, Mercola has concluded that making his content available only temporarily is a solution to dealing with the authoritarianism.
“I can hardly believe these words are coming out of my mouth. It’s a testament of just how radical things have degenerated in the recent past. However, I will continue to publish new articles, BUT going forward, each article I publish will be available for only 48 hours and will then be removed from the website.”
Mercola says the deletions will hopefully pacify the internet’s information-gatekeepers who have infinite power to destroy a person’s life.
“These will be removed to appease the individuals in power who have an arsenal of overwhelming tools at their disposal, and are actively engaged in using them. COVID-19 has activated and authorized emergency powers that have weakened our constitutional rights. Sadly, cyberwarfare and authoritarian forces are beyond our abilities to withstand, and this is now our only way forward.”
Mercola ends his message with a quote from Albert Einstein: “Science can flourish only in an atmosphere of free speech.”
Dr. Mercola’s self-censorship speaks volumes to the age of ruthless totalitarianism society is currently living through.
