On October 12th, Member of European Parliament Rob Roos of the Netherlands posted a tweet about his appearance on Fox News. Roos was interviewed by Tucker Carlson about his questions to a Pfizer representative during a committee meeting at the European Parliament. Roos asked:
Was the Pfizer Covid vaccine tested on stopping the transmission of the virus before it entered the market?
Janine Small, an executive with Pfizer, plainly replied “no” and explained:
We have to really move at the speed of science and really understand what is taking place in the market.
Replaying the interaction between Roos and Small, Tucker Carlson commented: “That’s the speed at which you’re moving too fast to do science, and you just hope for the best.”
Carlson then asked Rob Roos if he knew in advance what the Pfizer representative would say. Roos replied:
It really was a special moment. For the first time Pfizer admitted that the vaccine was not tested on the stopping of the transmission of the virus when it entered the market.
Roos also noted that this admission will have “massive implications.” He went on to remind the viewers that governments around the world used guilt-shaming verbiage to get young people to take the vaccine. Even worse, Roos explained,
Many governments, including mine, actually introduced so-called COVID passports. These passports made access to some parts of society conditional; those who did not wish to get vaccinated lost that access, not being able to visit a restaurant or a gym, all in the name of public health.
On October 12th, another Member of the European Parliament, Mislav Kolakusic, called the “purchase of 4.5 billion doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for 450 million EU residents” the “biggest corruption scandal in the history of mankind.”
