Dr. Robert Malone chides CDC for wanting to correct ‘wrong-speak’

By Bob Unruh


Dr. Robert W. Malone, a renowned physician and biochemist whose worked has focused on the mRNA technology that was used in the COVID-19 shots, is chiding the U.S. Centers for Disease Control for wanting to rid the nation of “wrong-speak.”

In a column that appeared at the Brownstone Institute, he cited the CDC’s new “guide” that imposes requirements for “how we are all to speak and write.”

The orders to America are found under the agency’s “Preferred Terms for Select Population Groups & Communities.”

“Now, how exactly this guide fits in with the CDC mission is beyond me,” he noted, since the agency is “tasked with disease control and prevention …. not tasked with correcting wrong-speak.”

The CDC’s actual mission statement notes it is to protect America from health, safety and security threats.

“According to the website, the CDC has put together this very extensive ‘list’ to protect people from ‘stigmatizing language,'” he explained. “The problem is that the CDC evidently believes that there should be no social stigmas. That if one commits a crime, is in prison, is an addict, or is involved in behaviors that most find offensive or are illegal, it is not ok to use a term to directly describe that activity because societal judgment might hurt someone’s feelings.”

He cited the CDC’s advice against using the term “smoker.”

“It might offend those who smoke,” Malone pointed out.

Also verboten would be “drug-users,” “alcoholics” and “drug abusers.”

Instead, appropriate would be “persons who use drugs,” “persons with alcohol use disorder,” persons in recovery from substance use” and such, he noted.

He did note that the CDC itself uses “offensive” terms, including having a registered trademark that states “Tips from former smokers.”

But, he said, “please folks – don’t do like the CDC. The proper term is ‘people who smoke.’ We wouldn’t want to offend smokers…”

He continued, “The CDC’s attempt to be non-judgmental for people who are addicted is also interesting. As they now categorize addiction as a disease, this means any reference to people who are addicted being called ‘addicted’ is wrong-speak. For instance, instead of ‘relapse,’ we should say ‘people who return to use.’ Because relapse implies that the behavior is stigmatizing and we shouldn’t stigmatize disease.”

He said, “As a society, as individuals, we have every right to judge those who hurt families, children, communities and themselves. Addicts hurt themselves and others. Let’s not sugar coat it. Yes, there are addicts who are mentally ill, but it is often a self-inflicted wound. Many treatment programs and practitioners do insist that the addict confront themselves and the damages done by their addiction. This is not a malicious or bad thing. Not ‘sugar-coating’ addiction is often part of the treatment and healing process.”

He also said instead of “inmate,” “prisoners,” convict,” “offender” or “criminal,” one should be using “Persons who are incarcerated or detained,” “people who were formerly incarcerated,” and “persons detained by or under the custody of [law enforcement].”

“Because we wouldn’t want someone detained or convicted of a murder to have their feelings hurt, would we?” he said. “So, calling Bryan Kohberger a ‘detainee’ for the murder of four innocent college students would be considered a wrong-speak crime. Good to know.”

Further, “mentally ill” should be “people with a pre-existing mental health disorder,” “homeless” should be “persons experiencing unstable housing,” and “poor people” actually are “people with lower incomes.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: The “Climate Change Cult.” The “Anti-Racism Cult.” The “Cult of Wokeness.” The “LGBTQ Cult” and its predatory offspring targeting America’s children, the “Transgender Cult.” The “Cult of Abortion.” The “COVID Cult.” The “Cult of Globalism.” “TikTok Cults.” Every month the list grows.

To right-thinking Americans attempting to make sense of a nation seemingly gone mad, it’s becoming increasingly clear that the irrational, deranged – and often demonic – leftwing political and cultural movements currently capturing the minds of millions of Americans are nothing short of full-fledged cults.

Although the high priesthood of all these leftwing religious cults – i.e., university professors, academics and other Marxist ideologues and activists – may be true believers, the people actually wielding REAL POWER do not believe any of it. To them, these leftwing cults conveniently serve to disguise and distract “the rabble” from what the leader class is REALLY up to, which is the pursuit of ever more power, wealth and glory for themselves, and a total transformation of America and the world.

All of this and much more is explored in a powerful, insightful and absolutely unique way in the latest issue of WND’s acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOLY WAR: Defeating the growing cult of leftism and its total war on Christianity.”
