Facebook is actively using its Big Tech powers to censor and suppress reporting about the release of Anthony Fauci’s emails.
The Silicon Valley giant has long played an active role in censoring theories about COVID-19’s origin, even threatening those who alleged the virus could’ve been manmade and leaked from the Wuhan lab with suspensions and bans. Shortly after President Joe Biden reinstated an inquiry into the virus’s beginnings, however, Facebook announced it would no longer suppress claims that COVID-19 was not naturally created.
While the Big Tech company has started to backtrack on some of its censorship efforts, Facebook still remains dedicated to removing “false claims” about any of the COVID-19 vaccines from its site and has reportedly begun censoring posts related to the release of Fauci’s emails.
Several users took to Twitter on Wednesday and Thursday to complain that their comments and posts discussing the emails, or even posting a screenshot of the publicized information, were cited as reasons for their removal or event account suspension. Some of these alleged bans appeared to be enforced for at least three days.
Ahh @facebook. Maybe Fauci should tell Zuck!
But seriously, the open alliance between Big Tech and government agencies on #covid raises all sorts of questions, especially this one – if @facebook is serving as an arm of the government, why doesn’t the First Amendment apply to it? pic.twitter.com/EJDPNSFzHS

Others saw their posts on Facebook get slapped with fake “fact-checks” and labels cautioning that the posts were lacking pertinent information. One Federalist article was flagged by “independent fact-checkers” from Agence France-Presse, which found its start just four years ago in 2017, for an article that was supposedly “missing context.” The Federalist article accurately reported that Fauci pushed Americans to mask up even when he admitted masks weren’t very effective. Agence France-Presse, however, claimed, “Fauci’s email reflected the consensus at the time among US health experts, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the surgeon general, America’s leading public health spokesman.”
“That consensus changed as new information emerged and concerns over the limited supply of masks for medical personnel subsided,” the phony fact-check concluded.
Facebook-owned Instagram also hopped on the fake “fact-checking” bandwagon. Shortly after a Federalist staffer posted a meme about the emails on his Instagram story, Facebook partially covered his post with a “missing context” flag encouraging users to look at how “the same information was reviewed by independent fact-checkers in another post.” The label disappeared hours later without a trace.
In addition to showing his mask hypocrisy and downplaying of U.S.-funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan, Fauci’s emails also revealed that the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases colluded with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to control the distribution of the federal government’s COVID-19 guidance across the website.
“Your idea and proposal sound terrific. I would be happy to do a video for your hub,” Fauci replied to Zuckerberg’s proposals. “We need to reach as many people as possible and convince them to take mitigation strategies seriously or things will get much, much worse. Also, your idea about [REDACTED] is very exciting.” An additional offer to Fauci was fully redacted.
Facebook did not respond to The Federalist’s questions or request for comment.
Twitter Blocks ICAN Account for Stating They Will Be Releasing 3,600 Fauci Emails — LINK TO NEW FAUCI EMAILS BELOW
The Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) announced this week that they finally received emails sent last year by Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. This was after they were forced to file a lawsuit last year after their FOIA requests were denied.
This week after announcing they finally received the emails and were going to release these emails, Twitter blocked ICAN’s account.
This is similar to what Twitter did to The Gateway Pundit account earlier this year. When TGP announced we were going to release more video of late-night ballot drop-offs at the TCF Center in Detroit, our account was suspended.
Here is the ICAN press release from earlier today.
AUSTIN, TX, June 4, 2021 – In early 2020, ICAN made FOIA requests to NIH for documents regarding COVID-19, including two requests for emails sent by Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. When NIH failed to respond to those requests, ICAN brought a lawsuit against the agency on June 29, 2020.
In response to that lawsuit, NIH agreed to produce Dr. Fauci’s emails on a rolling basis. To date, ICAN has received 2,957 pages of Dr. Fauci’s emails, sent from early February 2020 through May 2020. There is some overlap between these emails and those recently made public by BuzzFeed.
Del Bigtree, the founder of ICAN, said, “We must hold our government health officials accountable when they make false claims” and “is pleased to provide the public with Fauci’s emails reflecting what he was saying privately in early 2020 regarding masks, therapeutics, vaccines, ventilators, and many other COVID-19 topics.”
Reflecting concern regarding what these emails may reveal, Twitter blocked ICAN’s account for merely stating that the Fauci emails it obtained would shortly be released to the public. Mr. Bigtree explained that “one can only assume that Twitter is concerned that Fauci’s own emails undermine the narrative it has been pushing regarding coronavirus and the coronavirus vaccine.”
A copy of Fauci’s emails obtained by ICAN can be downloaded here.
Highlights from these emails are outlined below and watch “The Highwire with DelBigtree” weekly at 2 pm Eastern for additional coverage regarding these emails and other health topics.
Twitter Is Developing Three Different ‘Misinformation’ Warning Labels
9to5Mac reports that Twitter is developing a number of misinformation labels. The company recently introduced the “read before you retweet” pop-up which warns users to think twice before sharing content in an attempt to reduce the spread of misinformation.
China-Owned TikTok Is Banning Satirical Impressions That Mock WHO Apologist Anthony Fauci
Chinese-owned TikTok, a short-clip video-sharing platform weaponized as a Chinese Communist Party surveillance tool, has reportedly removed satirical impressions of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Comedian Tyler Fischer, whose impressions have gone viral, wrote on Twitter Monday TikTok banned his mocking of Fauci, the face of America’s detrimental lockdowns, over violations of its “community guidelines.”
My Fauci impressions are starting to be removed from TikTok for breaking “community guidelines.” Censorship causes extremism, cause now I have to go do my impressions door to door like a psychopath. 🏡 🕺🏼🏡 pic.twitter.com/EXXTz1Rp0V

Fischer did not offer details on what videos were taken down, or what guidelines TikTok claimed they violated. TikTok’s parent company, China-owned ByteDance, did not immediately respond to The Federalist’s inquiries.
As the novel Wuhan coronavirus pandemic comes to an end, earning its name from its first outbreak in the Hubei province of central China, Fauci has been the fiercest defender of lockdowns despite their colossal costs. The Chinese intelligence tool, TikTok, which U.S. national security officials sought to ban within American borders, has responded to Fauci’s impending irrelevance with apparent protection from criticism. Fauci has also consistently thrown cover for the China-dominated World Health Organization (WHO) and rejected theories the coronavirus emerged from a lab in Wuhan involved in research funded by Fauci’s NIAID.
Capitol Hill lawmakers on both sides of the aisle remain concerned about TikTok’s use as a surveillance service for communist China, enough so that the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee unanimously passed a bill last week to ban the app on government devices.
Earlier this month, one of Fischer’s impressionist videos racked up more than 400,000 views on Twitter alone and more than half a million on TikTok, where he mocks Fauci’s strict demands that Americans adhere to mask for wearing regardless of immunity status. Fauci often wears two masks despite being vaccinated.
“I’d say even if you live alone, I would wear a mask in the house, especially in the shower,” Fischer said. “Because, frankly, droplets can make their way through the drain, and come up through somebody else’s toilet, infecting them through the anus.”
