Canceled by Medium

I’ve been canceled by the web site Medium. I’ve been posting reprints of my articles there after they had been printed elsewhere as a kind of repository, a handy one-stop place for my work.

Well it turns out Medium does not support free speech. They write “Due to elevated risk of potential harm to persons or public health, Medium’s Trust & Safety team has removed the following content under its rules" The article was about zero excess Covid deaths in Sweden.

Medium also did not like something I wrote about Black Lives Matter. They said “We do not allow content that constitutes or promotes violence, harassment, or hatred against people based on characteristics like race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, caste, disability, disease, age, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity” and dumped

Please take a moment to read the articles (if you still can) and let Medium, and me, know what you think of them in the comments. I doubt that will change any woke-sick minds over there, but it is always good to get these things on the record.

Until free speech is acknowledged by Medium, I will not be posting there. Follow me at instead.
