YouTube has removed Joe Rogan’s interview with the scientist who helped invent mRNA vaccines and who claimed that the US is now like Nazi Germany with society ‘hypnotized’ to believe in vaccines and extreme pandemic measures.
Dr Robert Malone’s Twitter account, where he boasted more than 500,000 followers, has also been suspended for violating the platform’s rules.
During the three-hour and six-minute interview on the now-viral episode #1757 of The Joe Rogan Experience, Malone claimed to be part of the team that invented the mRNA technology used in Covid-19 vaccines.
He also talked about vaccine mandates, and said there were similarities between America’s current state in the pandemic and Nazi Germany.
Similar to Germany in the 1920s and 1930s, the doctor alleged on the podcast posted on New Year’s Eve that American society is experiencing a ‘mass formation psychosis’.

The 61-year-old doctor’s account was suspended and Twitter cited a violation of the platform’s rules

Malone, 61, said: ‘It was from, basically, European intellectual inquiry into what the heck happened in Germany in the 20s and 30s. Very intelligent, highly educated population, and they went barking mad.
‘And how did that happen? The answer is mass formation psychosis. When you have a society that has become decoupled from each other, and has free floating anxiety, in a sense that things don’t make sense. We can’t understand it. And then their attention gets focused by a leader or series of events on one small point, just like hypnosis. They literally become hypnotized and can be led anywhere.’
Rogan later talked about Malone’s ban from Twitter, which happened just one day before the podcast was released.
‘They removed you for not going along with whatever the tech narrative is because tech clearly has a censorship agenda when it comes to Covid in terms of treatment, in terms of whether or not you are promoting what they would call ‘vaccine hesitancy’ – they can ban you for that,’ Rogan said, adding that Malone is ‘one of the most qualified people in the world to talk about vaccines’.
Malone responded by questioning: ‘If it’s not okay for me to be a part of the conversation even though I’m pointing out scientific facts that may be inconvenient, then who is?’

One Twitter user called the suspension ‘vax propaganda’ and another said that Malone paid ‘the price of being more correct than most, earlier than most’
‘Whether or not I’m factually correct or not – and I freely admit no one’s perfect. I’m not perfect. It’s one of my core points is people should think for themselves. And I try really hard to give people the information and help them to think, not to tell them what to think,’ the doctor added, pointing out that ‘no one can debate the dispute that I played a major role in the creation of this tech’.
Dr Robert Malone’s role in developing Covid-19 vaccines
Dr Robert Malone came under criticism for speaking out – and tweeting – against vaccines when he was reportedly a key player in developing the mRNA technology used in the Covid-19 jabs.
According to Malone’s LinkedIn profile, he is the inventor if mRNA and DNA vaccines and a worldwide expert in RNA technologies.
Before being suspended from the social media platform, the Harvard Medical School grad’s Twitter bio even read: ‘I literally invented the mRNA technology when I was 28.’

Malone, now 61, did, in fact, do intense research in the field of gene transfer.
According to a 6,000-word essay written by his wife Jill and reviewed by The Atlantic, Malone in the late 1980s – as a graduate student in biology at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies – injected DNA and RNA into the cells of mice in efforts to create a new kind of vaccine.
He authored a 1989 paper telling how RNA could be delivered to cells via lipids – fatty acids – as well as a 1990 paper demonstrating how injecting pure genetic material (DNA or RNA) into a mouse’s muscle cells could lead to the creation of new proteins.
Malone theorized in the 1990 paper that if the same would go for human cells, the technology ‘may provide alternative approaches to vaccine development’.
A fellow mRNA-vaccine researcher and lead author of a 2019 history of mRNA vaccine development Rein Verbeke told The Atlantic that he believes Malone ‘sparked for the first time the hope that mRNA could have potential as a new drug class’.
However, he went on to add that ‘the achievement of the mRNA vaccines of today is the accomplishment of a lot of collaborative efforts’.
In a tweet on Wednesday, the day before his account was suspended, the renowned doctor – who went by @RWMaloneMD on the social media site – wrote: ‘Pfizer 6 month data which shows that Pfizer’s Covid-19 inoculations cause more illness than they prevent. Plus, an overview of the Pfizer trial flaws in both design and execution.’
He accompanied the tweet with a link to the Canadian Covid Care Alliance website.
One Twitter user called the suspension ‘vax propaganda’ and another said that Malone paid ‘the price of being more correct than most, earlier than most’.
Malone later alleged on the podcast that many of the pharmaceutical companies administering vaccines – such as Pfizer and Moderna – have ‘financial conflicts of interest’.
In what appeared to be an effort to establish his credibility, Malone reassured: ‘I think I’m the only one that doesn’t. I’m not getting any money out of this.’
Meanwhile, as the creator of the mRNA technology used in Covid vaccines, many questioned why Malone would then speak so strongly against getting jabbed.
Malone claimed the answer was simply ‘because it’s the right thing to do’.
‘For me, the reason is: Because what’s happening is not right. It’s destroying my profession, it’s destroying the practice of medicine worldwide, it’s destroying public health in medicine.’
He continued: ‘I’m a vaccinologist. I’ve spent 30 years developing vaccine. A stupid amount of education learning how to do it and what the rules are.
‘And for me, I’m personally offended by watching my discipline get destroyed for no good reason at all except, apparently, financial incentives, and – I don’t know – political a**-covering’.
The controversial doctor also offered his expertise on the government’s Covid-19 response.
‘Our government is out of control,’ he said, adding: ‘They are lawless. They completely disregard bioethics. They completely disregard the federal common rule. they have broken all the rules that I know of – that I have been trained on for years and years and years.’
He went on to say that government-imposed vaccine mandates ‘are explicitly illegal’ as they do not align with the Nuremberg Code and the Belmont Report.
According to a research team at the University of North Carolina, the Nuremberg Code is a ten-point system determining what medical experimentation is justifiable on human subjects.
Similarly, the Belmont Report established basic ethical principles to guide medical research involving human subjects, as stated by the US Department of Health & Human Resources (HHS).
‘They are explicitly illegal and they don’t care,’ Malone reiterated.
The doctor also noted that he has been contacted by multiple lawyers looking to help him file a suit against Twitter. He referenced independent journalist Alex Berenson, who filed a federal lawsuit against the social media platform last month challenging his ban from the service over a tweet questioning the effectiveness of Covid vaccines.
The episode was also posted in full on an account not affiliated with Joe Rogan but was also later removed. YouTube cited a violation of Community Guidelines, The Post Millennial reported.
However, the audio-only version of the episode is still on Spotify.
Yet, despite Malone’s claims on the podcast, 62 percent of the American population is vaccinated, according to the Mayo Clinic. Another 73.3 percent have at least one dose of a vaccine.
But the jabs haven’t stopped the ultra-transmissible Omicron variant from spreading throughout the United States.
As of Sunday, Johns Hopkins reported 115,984 new Covid-19 cases and 280 Covid-related death in the previous 24 hours.
That same day, the US reported a seven-day average of 402,998 cases.
In a study by Columbia University, researchers speculated that the Omicron-fueled cases in the US may reach the peak by January 9, which would see from 2.5million cases to 5.4million cases per week.
As the potential peak nears, health experts continue to push Americans to take precautions and get their Covid shots.
In response, about 68.8million of the fully vaccinated have also received a third dose – or a booster shot – since August 13, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
