Sometimes people suggest my description of the public health mafia as 'health fascists' is unfair. I really don't think so and here's why:
Reporters were forcibly removed and restrained Tuesday at the World Health Organization (WHO) meeting on tobacco control in Moscow.
Washington Times editorial writer Drew Johnson told The Daily Caller that he was physically escorted out of the meeting’s convention hall by a guard while another reporter was physically restrained from entering the room, even though WHO never formally voted to restrict the media from the event.
That's right folks. A publicly funded body excluded reporters (and for that matter members of the public) from a meeting to discuss imposing a tax. Welcome to the world of public health, welcome to health fascism.
