Since its founding, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been at the vanguard of the Covid-19 pandemic. In the mainstream media and by Big Tech, the CDC was deified as the final judge of Covid facts and fictions.
Governors and mayors across the country used its guidance as justification to circumvent the democratic and legislative processes that are the bedrocks of American administration. The CDC’s recommendation was cited as proof that authoritarian demands were required under emergency powers that the government had granted itself.
When CDC Director Rochelle Walensky spoke this weekend at her alma school, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, she explained the lessons gained from the Covid pandemic in a candid and humble manner that belied the agency’s magisterial powers conferred by the American media.
Many Americans, in fact, may find the actual discussion to be downright annoying.
She continues: “I have frequently said ‘we’re going to lead with the science’…I think public heard that as ‘science is foolproof. Science is black and white.’…The truth is science is grey. And science is not always immediate.“ pic.twitter.com/lQCvoKjFp8— Alex Thompson (@AlexThomp) March 4, 2022
The Director of the CDC makes a series of scientific confessions that have resulted in American citizens being blocked, banned, or deplatformed for speaking on social media. Because Walensky is purportedly a member of the privileged elite, she is permitted to explain the numerous ways in which she was erroneous or changed her mind as new data and knowledge became available.
One of the most remarkable moments is when the director of the CDC effectively admits that the agency is not the final authority on science.
This is the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention pounding a stake through science’ established narrative. In the mainstream media, not a single word has been said about it.
Then there’s her admission that the vaccines were not America’s ticket out of the pandemic, as the mainstream media depicted it at the time, and as it continues to be portrayed today in the absence of the complete context.
