A committee of the prestigious British medical journal The Lancet, funded in part by controversial international profiteer George Soros, is using public health to push controversial left-wing agenda programs.
The Lancet uses its influence to push initiatives such as the Green New Deal, coal mining ban, tax increases, defense spending cuts, Medicare for all, abortion, and others according to The Washington Free Beacon of Feb. 19.
One of its main arguments rests on the alleged politicization of science by former President Donald Trump, which “posed a uniquely urgent threat to health,” as published in its report, Public Policy and Health in the Trump Era.
The report received funding from George Soros’s Open Society Foundation, an organization that distributes money to countless radical leftist movements around the world, to the extent that it is banned in several countries.
The leftist initiatives would supposedly improve public health, and it added an “explicitly anti-racist” program that is supposed to eliminate the differences between minorities and “non-Latino whites.”
Additionally, it recommends that reparations for blacks, Native Americans, and Puerto Ricans should be part of that agenda.
The editor-in-chief of New Atlantis, a political and science magazine, Ari Schulman, criticized the magazine’s leftist bent.
“A mad scientist working in a lab to give [those cranks] cultural power could hardly do better than this Lancet report. It’s an impressive feat,” Schulman said.
This is not the first time that various scientific journals have echoed and spread left-wing politics; in fact, when George Floyd died in May 2020, they declared racism a “public health emergency” including the American Medical Association, The Lancet, and several other journals. Another of their causes they publicized was the Black Lives Matter protests.
Two hundred epidemiologists asserted on June 1, 2020, that the riots were “vital to national public health.”
They declared that the protests rejecting stay-at-home “not only oppose public health interventions, but are also rooted in white nationalism,” using science to justify it.
Soros is renowned for his broad and deep attempts to destabilize democratically constituted governments. In particular, interference in the United States is one of his objectives, to which he invests hundreds of millions of dollars, and for which he uses all kinds of resources at his disposal.
