WND's Hirschhorn Can't Stop Misinforming About COVID Vaccines
Topic: WorldNetDaily

The COVID pandemic may have passed, but WorldNetDaily columnist Joel Hirschhorn continues to mislead and fearmonger about COVID vaccines. He began his May 31 column by hyping a case report about a woman in Taiwan who was reportedly diagnosed with leukemia a few days after receiving a COVID vaccines -- though he censored the fact that researchers stated that they "cannot conclude the causal relationship" between the two. After citing another isolated case of an alleged side effect, Hirschhorn wrote:

The highly regarded Dr. Peter A. McCullough made this observation about the new findings:

"I wonder how many elderly patients have died within a few days of the COVID-19 vaccine, unrecognized and not reported by families, doctors, or others. Only all-cause mortality data published in the coming months to years will give us a clue. In the meantime, all seniors should understand that even if prior shots were tolerated, the next one could be fatal."

And, of course, there have been many findings of young people dying from cardiac problems post vaccine shots.

The only people who think McCullough is "highly regarded" are anti-vaxxers like WND; Hirschhorn, meanwhile, didn't cite a single case, let alone "many," of "young people dying from cardiac problems post vaccine shots."

Hirschhorn began his July 3 column by stating: "For those of us who see a critical need to elect a conservative president to restore U.S. democracy and our economy, it makes sense to look at candidates in terms of how they saw the government approach to managing the pandemic." He then attacked the Trump administration for listening to Anthony Fauci, whom Hirschhorn virulently hate:

For simplicity, consider the top two conservative candidates, Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.

First, it is important to understand that Trump went along with all the wrong policies on addressing the pandemic.

Though I think the Trump presidency did many great things for the country, it has always shocked me that on the key issue of the COVID pandemic he supported all the wrong actions and policies. It became clear by early 2021 that Fauci had pursued totally unsound ways of addressing the pandemic. Here is the mystery question: Why has Trump never openly said that he made a big mistake in listening to the "expertise" of Fauci? Tony Fauci was both incompetent and evil – a truth Trump should acknowledge and speak loudly about. Many attempts to get Trump to see the truth, such as actions by Dr. Scott Atlas and Dr. Peter McCullough, failed.

Trump deserves to pay a heavy price for stubbornly refusing to admit he made a terrible mistake in falling for the myth that Fauci was a top expert worthy of shaping national policy. If the former president is as smart as he thinks he is, then during his campaign for another term he should admit his big mistake as soon as possible – and he should ask for forgiveness.

Hirschhorn ranted that Trump allowed mask mandates and lockdowns and "prohibitions on using safe and effective generics for early treatment such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine; and even vitamin D, as a better alternative to the COVID 'vaccines' that are really gene therapy products that were poorly tested." In fact, ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine have never been found effective against COVID in legitimate testing. He then touted how DeSantis purportedly did better:

In contrast to Trump, Gov. DeSantis did a much better job of addressing the pandemic by, for example, keeping workplaces and schools open. He also fought various mandates.

Because of the ever-present Fauci in and on every media outlet, in August 2022 DeSantis said: "I'm so sick of seeing him. … someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac."

The failure of Fauci's policies must be honestly faced if future pandemics are to be better managed. What Fauci messed up explains why so many Americans have lost confidence in virtually all public health institutions.

Hirschhorn concluded: "The only Democratic presidential candidate with a correct, negative view of Fauci is Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the author of 'The Real Anthony Fauci.' But Kennedy advocates many terrible policies that disqualify him for consideration." One can assume that Kennedy's promotion of anti-vaxx consiracy theories is not on his list of "terrible policies."
