Smith quoted an article by the Daily Mail criticizing the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests used to identify COVID-19. The March 12 piece puts forward the possibility of the test itself and the lockdowns put in place being problematic. "The gold standard PCR tests … were picking up people who weren't actually infected. Some even suggested that the swabs, which have been carried out more than 200 million times in the U.K. alone, may mistake common colds and flu for [the coronavirus.]"
It added: "If either or both were true, it would mean that many of the cases should never have been counted in the daily tally. [The] ominous and all-too-familiar figure, which is used to inform decision on [lockdowns] and other pandemic measures, was an over-count." (Related: SCIENCE FAIL: Portuguese court rules PCR tests are unreliable, unlawful "evidence" of alleged Covid-19 infections.)
The "American Journal" host did not hold back on his response to the British tabloid.
"Let me go ahead and answer that question for you, Daily Mail. Yes, they were flawed; they picked up the flu and the cold as COVID-19; and they detected dead COVID-19 strains up to 12 weeks after the person had been infected. It was all a lie, [and] people doing this knew that they were doing it. They imposed lockdowns and restrictions, and destroyed the economy based on these flawed assumptions that they knew were flawed from the very beginning," Smith said.
"They locked down your country on purpose. They killed hundreds of thousands of people by denying them things like ivermectin – [despite] the fact that there were cures for this disease a month into the pandemic. The lockdowns … just destroyed economies, leading to the death of millions.
Smith also voiced out his criticism of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) for supposedly "redefining" what constitutes a COVID-19 death. The move by the Bay State's health department will reduce the state's death tally by the thousands, according to the Lowell Sun.
DPH State Epidemiologist Dr. Catherine Brown said of the move: "We believe that this will provide us a much more accurate picture of who has died [in association with] a COVID-19 infection in Massachusetts, and it will also improve our ability to compare our data with data from other jurisdictions. We think this is an absolutely critical step in improving our understanding of who COVID-19 has impacted most significantly during the pandemic."
Smith remarked: "Under the old guidance – if the virus appeared as the cause of death on someone's death certificate or if they tested positive for the virus [within] 60 days of death, it's counted in the statewide [COVID-19] death tally. They're just lying to pump up the numbers, to justify the lockdowns [and] to destroy [the] economy [and the] supply chain."
According to the "American Journal" host, there must be a "massive worldwide reckoning" in which all those responsible for destroying Americans' lives in the name of public health must "be held to account." He added: "The only way possible that we can get back to some sense of normalcy is if the people who led us down this path, who lied to us day in and day out and destroyed our country, get what's coming to them."
But Smith is not exactly optimistic about the prospect of the medical tyrants being held to account over their actions.
"It'll never happen because the American people have just been castrated. [They've] been there just stomping on our nuts, and we sit here and allow them to do it – and [even] thank them for the opportunity."
