Skip to comments.Major Medical Orgs Demand That The DOJ Prosecute People Who Share ‘Misleading’ Information Online

The American Medical Association (AMA) sent Attorney General Merrick Garland a letter Monday calling on him to “investigate the organizations, individuals, and entities coordinating, provoking, and carrying out bomb threats and threats of personal violence against children’s hospitals and physicians across the U.S.”
“The attacks are rooted in an intentional campaign of disinformation, where a few high-profile users on social media share false and misleading information targeting individual physicians and hospitals, resulting in a rapid escalation of threats, harassment, and disruption of care across multiple jurisdictions,” the AMA, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA) said in the letter. “Our organizations have called on technology companies to do more to prevent this practice on digital platforms, and we now urge your office to take swift action to investigate and prosecute all organizations, individuals, and entities responsible.”
The AMA, AAP and CHA also called on TikTok, Twitter and Meta (the parent company of Facebook and Instagram) to use “safety and hateful conduct policies” to prevent “coordinated campaigns of disinformation.”
Multiple media outlets reported hospitals across the country promoted gender transitions to minors, including ones at Vanderbilt University, the University of Virginia and the University of Wisconsin. Hospitals responded by taking down videos and websites discussing transitions for children.
“The AMA has lost all credibility,” Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw posted on Twitter.
Republican Rep. Dan Bishop of Georgia vowed to look into the letter, which he compared to one sent by the National School Board Association (NSBA) to Garland in 2021.
“I look forward to investigating if AMA is a cutout for a political op by the White House, as the NASB was,” Bishop tweeted. “Any ‘threat tags’ to be set up by FBI?”
The letter from the NSBA resulted in a backlash, prompting multiple state school board associations withdrawing from the national group.
The AMA, AAP and Justice Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Except those that the establishment accuses having misled were right.

Anyone questioning “science” ?
Not until the 4th paragraph does the article mention what this is about.
Way to be vague.
There are real physicians and there are “woke” ones.
Recognize and avoid the latter.
Why is “Eye patch McCain” (h/t Tucker Carlson) upset about this ?
Amendment the First:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
There is also the story of quasicrystals and another is “100 Authors Against Einstein”. (”I had been wrong, one would have been enough.” - A. Einstein)
We need it fast
Why didn’t they do this for years with all the quack garbage not just on the net, but on TV? We’ve had on-going snake-oil sales, and that includes it creeping into the medical establishment. “Alternative” and “integrative” and “complementary” all show the medical establishment condoning garbage that has no proof.
Only about 15% of US docs are AMA members.
The AMA gets most of their money from big pharma and the fed.
Maybe..... just maybe, if the bulk of you moronic so-called medical professionals would have grown a pair and actually helped save lives during the Scamdemic instead of bowing to your masters, you wouldn’t have pissed off multitudes of people by denying them actual “cures”.
Now, the landscape is littered with corpses of loved ones and your scratching your heads wondering why folks are “gunning” for you.
Idjits. Stupid should hurt.
Seems like freedom died during covid.
It smacks of desperation. Like they know backlash is coming.
Arrest and prison for posting words. These people don’t care that they are fulfilling the predictions of 1984. They like being totalitarian fascists.
It is interesting in how [they] are approaching the issue.
Constitution says, “Congrass shall make no law” but, in this instance (as in others) it is an agency of the Executive Branch that is making regulation outside of Law and then applying it as if it were Law.
So, in their minds, this is not unConstitutional, just extra-Constitutional and therefore...an issue for the SCOTUS to resolve.
While it is quite plain that the SCOTUS would strike this down, [they] get to carry on until someone brings suit.
Currently, there is no one in Congress (the body who can prove harm) with spine enough to do it.
Way to circumvent the whole judicial system (not that I have faith in it at all)-go straight to the top! If this doesn’t make people open their eyes as to how the system works and whom it is working for...
