Mr. John Leake (partner of Dr. Peter McCullough) penned this substack that I wish to share, calling into question Twitter language used by Mr. Michael Senger on Dr. McCullough; my remarks below
by Paul Alexander
I am a senior fellow at Brownstone and Mr. Senger writes for Brownstone and so I wish to be respectful of Brownstone and Mr. Jeff Tucker. i am humbled just to be here to write.
I think that the words used by Senger were misplaced and wrong. There is no one save Dr. Harvey Risch and folk like Dr. Oskoui who have done more, with Dr. Ladapo and Dr. Urso and Jenny Beth Martin, and Dr. Lee Vliet, as well as Jeff Tucker, Dr. Breggin, and Dr. Scott Atlas, and myself, in fighting the COVID tyranny from lockdowns to the fraud COVID gene injections. If we are basing it on writing and rallies and speeches and interviews.
I will add Bhattacharya and Kulldorff (and Gupta). I do not pretend to speak for any of these people. Tenenbaum, Sass, Hodkinson, Trozzi etc. Look, several others who stood up and put necks on the line, careers, and name, and lost near all. For those I did not name, I apologize, but you are there. As much as I detest and loath Berenson’s continued attacks on Dr. Naomi Wolf, very poor form, I will cite he was out early with us too, banging away. Berenson, check yourself on those attacks on Wolf and Kirsch. Not needed, not warranted, and we can all feed at the trough. And I mean by this that there is room for everyone who wants to play a role in this freedom warrior fight. There is no need for any one person or groups to monopolize the cause. This cannot be about disparaging another to get hits and likes and donor money. No, never. This cause is way too important.
Take for instance those hurt by the lockdowns and the fraud gene injection itself. The actual victims who had bad side effects or even died. They do not get the camera time nor interview time they deserve for they are the real victims. Yet overlooked, as an after thought. They have to fight to be heard while there is this feeding frenzy for camera and the like. It is actually perverse. The media people do not even pay them mind, they are not ‘sexy’ enough, their issue not important enough. And if by me saying this you rush now and grant some interviews, then that is a win.
This cause has devolved into one side that has done wrong for various reasons (and we want that dealt with) yet our side that seems to be in a constant feeding frenzy (with money on their minds of course, donor money) and in it, we use the forum to damage each other. Why?
I ask you to not belittle each other. We must fight this tendency and we are angry, I know. So much wrong was done and sometimes we get unwound. There so much goodness here. We are doing the Lord’s work.
Do not attack each other, we have one dragon to slay. I want you in the fight and you do good. But tone it down. You attack good people, strong, contributing, marvelous people needlessly and wrongfully. Pick up the phone, write and email, no open forum attacks. Not good form. We all make mistakes, we can be wrong. I make mistakes. Far from perfect and please do not take this as me taking any leadership role, and ‘who the hell does he think he is to tell us what to do’. You would be right and if I could get my way to disentangle form this movement, I would. At times the behavior disgusts me. Ordinary mom and pop Joe out there helps us with their hard earned money yet for some, it is all they see. That is wrong. For some, its only about money and I ask, please rewire your head and understand why we began the pushback, and it is because gross was done to our societies, our nation, our peoples, and the world. And we are trying to fix it and get justice and accountability.
Stop the circular firing squad. Stop the playing the victim ‘oh I lost more than he lost so give me more’. Benefit derived in this fight must be the after thought, the win, the prize is the ‘help’, fixing and changing lives devastated by this madness lockdown and fraud gene injection lunacy.
Mr. Leake did a great job in his stack and I will not add to it yet the truth is that from day one, it was McCullough out there with us waging war on the malfeasants, with Jeff Tucker opening the way, as well as Trial site news (Daniel). We do not seek any leader but if one is to be named or showcased for the COVID freedom warriors, it would be Drs. McCullough and Risch. They actually fashioned an initial group to fight the wrongs. Yet we seek none. No leader.
I think Senger’s words were offensive and wrong. Very wrong and he did not do his homework. Many folk called me and wrote me as they know I work with McCullough on early treatment etc. I admire Mr. Senger for his work on study of China etc. He is a Brownstone colleague and before now, I had only praise. I still do have praise for his capacity but we have to clean this up. We cannot use Twitter and the like to hurt each other and I only write here to follow Leake and to help set the record straight for a good man. McCullough has a heart unlike most I know, decent, forgiving, compassionate. So lets move on and wish the best and stop this.
I am asking Mr. Senger to step back and consider apologizing to Dr. McCullough for his damaging words and let us move on! Sort it out between you two. Huge hugs to all. That is it and call McCullough if you have issues. Call each other if we have issues. Talk, have tea, hug, cry, do all we need to do for fundamentally we are dealing with good people. Michael, please read the depth and breath of all McCullough has done and is doing before you write things like that. We are all human beings and make mistakes and hurt and this must be hurtful, for all you did was smear a good man.
The arc of your work Michael makes that you are not an ill-intent person and very decent. I feel so that you are very decent but this was wrong. A mistake. I do not know why and do not wish to make more of a discussion.
Come on Senger, you are better than that, smart, well thought out, so do not be like the crazies and COVIDian Taliban we are fighting against who ransacked and near destroyed our world.
Huge hugs my man, I know you will resolve statesmanlike. You are that kind! Much love and respect!
