The wrongest man of the pandemic has finally succeeding in getting banned from Twitter, with a lie that COVID vaccines don’t prevent infection being the last straw:
Anti-mask-turned-anti-vaxx influencer Alex Berenson has been permanently suspended by Twitter.
“The account you referenced has been permanently suspended for repeated violations of our COVID-19 misinformation rules,” a Twitter spokesperson said, in a statement sent to NBC News.— Ben Collins (@oneunderscore__) August 29, 2021
Hospitals across the South are filled with unvaccinated covid patients who fell victim to nihilist anti-vax grifters like Alex Berenson. He’s not a martyr. He didn’t ask hard questions. He didn’t speak to truth to power. He just lied, repeatedly. Good riddance.— Aaron Astor (@AstorAaron) August 29, 2021
Alex Berenson actually does leave behind one legacy worth celebrating.
He was on the receiving end of the single greatest dunk in Twitter history. pic.twitter.com/3wfTrOWH51— Jeremy Faust MD MS (ER physician) (@jeremyfaust) August 29, 2021
The Intellectual Horse Goo Web is in mourning, perhaps they will hold a telethon at Bari Weiss’s ShakeShack:
I congratulate any lawyer who can get Berenson to pay a retainer.
Congratulations to Malcolm Gladwell for giving a credulous review to Berenson’s misinformation book on marijuana! Bang-up work all around.
