It’s always a learning experience to see a person who financially benefits from the freedom of speech simultaneously call for the silencing of others.
Likewise, it’s always informative to see the supposedly “Catholic” Church based in Rome not only cozy up to such a hypocrite, but also not show any qualms about the fact that she and others invited to a Papal gathering are rabid promoters of abortion.
So it was doubly educational to see that Chelsea Clinton was one of the invited speakers at Jesuit Pope Francis’ “Fifth International Vatican ‘Unite to Prevent & Unite to Cure’ Conference” that was aired Friday, May 7, and that she wasted no time to show that she thirsted for the suppression of free speech across the entire planet.
Chelsea Clinton has spoken out against freedom of vaccine-critical speech at a Vatican conference dedicated to dialogue.
The dark irony certainly comes through.
“Speaking during a pre-recorded online meeting, Clinton, 41, responded to a question about so-called ‘vaccine hesitancy’ regarding COVID-19 vaccines by saying that there must be a global effort to crack down on vaccine-critical social media posts.”
“’I personally very strongly believe there has to be more intensive and intentional and coordinated global regulation of the content on social media platforms,’ she said.”
ZOUNDS! God forbid people want to exchange thoughts and information, offer opinions and test theses. To utter any such verboten skepticism is to engage in an act of blasphemy, and should bring swift silencing from her Ministry of Truth.
This coming from the woman who is the vice president of the squeaky-clean Clinton Foundation – a big-government org that, maybe, kinda, saw more than a few folks raise concerns over its ties to international donors while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State under Barack Obama (wink, wink) – and from a woman who already has shown her propensity to call for “global health” commands via her thrilling book (co-written with University of Edinburgh prof Devi Sridhar) “Governing Global Health,”, this makes plenty of sense. Authoritarians never cease to call for silencing of dissent and for crushing the spread of information, even as they enjoy their own free speech and ties to taxpayer subsidized entities.
And Chelsea is in good company, as McLean writes:
“She appeared alongside Dr. Paul Farmer of Harvard Medical School and Dr. Walter Ricciardi, the Italian president of the World Federation of Public Health Associations, at a pre-recorded online meeting forming part of the Fifth International Vatican “Unite to Prevent & Unite to Cure” conference. Their meeting was first aired today.”
Dr. Farmer would be the same man who started Partners In Health to help people in Haiti, but who also has called for global health regulations and international subsidies, promotes Marxist “Liberation Theology” that corrupts the very heart of Christianity and turns the idea of “love thy neighbor” into “force thy neighbor to hand over cash and rights so the state can do what it calls good,” has been involved with the “social justice” movement around the world, and who, as editor of “Health and Human Rights Review” (a publican of the government-subsidized Harvard University’s Harvard University Press) also has put his name behind international pushes for…yep, abortion.
Pope Francis has done virtually nothing to criticize, ostracize, or excommunicate U.S. political figures such as President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who both call themselves Catholic while promoting infanticide and funding it through taxation. Why is it not surprising that his Vatican would invite two of the world’s highest profile abortion-pushers to the Catholic Church’s gab-fest on “health”?
For the Vatican to host a conference pushing not only abortion advocates, but advocates of tax-funded abortion, a conference which also pushes worldwide censorship of any jab-skepticism, is beneath contempt.
