Dr. Robert Malone claims NY teacher was fired for assigning his Joe Rogan interview as extra credit

Scientist and mRNA vaccine researcher Dr. Robert Malone set Twitter on fire Friday when he claimed a New York teacher was fired for assigning an interview he did with podcaster Joe Rogan as extra credit.

“Crazy times… A teacher in NY was fired for having students listen to my interview with Rogan in an extra credit assignment,” the doctor tweeted. “Commissioner of education demanded reinstatement with back pay, and evidently the district refuses to follow the order.”

The tweet went viral, garnering nearly a million views and more than 29,000 “likes.”

Malone provided a link to an appeal from the New York State Education Department’s website, which referenced the assignment and the questions that were included.

Dr. Malone was censored and smeared beginning in late 2021 for daring to question the official government narrative surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines and challenging the mainstream media’s response to the pandemic.

For his expert opinions, Malone was kicked off Twitter in Dec. 2021 and wasn’t reinstated until Elon Musk took over as CEO.

The teacher asked the students, “Why was he banned from Twitter?” and whether their “constitutional rights are being upheld or violated.”

According to the appeal, the respondent argued that the teacher used “controversial materials that had no valid curricular purpose.”

The Criminal Justice teacher was accused of using “resources to promote misinformation.”

Students of the teacher in question, Adrianne Rickson, stepped up to support her, stating on the record that she was an “amazing educator and advocate for students.”

“Mrs. Rickson was the most amazing teacher I had … she motivated me and helped me be a better version of myself and … totally turned my life around,” said one student.

While Rogan isn’t specifically named in the appeal, Malone’s Dec. 2021 interview with the controversial podcaster in which he discussed “mass formation psychosis” was yanked from YouTube and buried on the internet. Malone was subsequently banned from both Twitter and LinkedIn.

Back on Twitter, one user suggested Malone should revisit Rogan for another sitdown.

“The correct answer to this is to go back on Rogan and mention these kinds of stories,” the user urged the much-maligned doctor. “Scare them harder.”

“It has been suggested,” Malone replied. “I thought it would have been epic too.”

“I’m genuinely surprised the commissioner in that state demanded reinstatement,” noted another user of the appeal.

“Me too,” stated Malone.

Fortunately, Malone’s more than 800,000 followers need not fear that his voice will again be silenced on Twitter.

Not only has Musk devoted part of the explosive “Twitter Files” to the government’s suppression of dissident COVID views, but he has also instated a new policy on the platform to ensure scientific debate will always have a home.

“New Twitter policy is to follow the science,” Musk tweeted on Wednesday, “which necessarily includes reasoned questioning of the science.”

Musk himself has been highly critical of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci,” he tweeted earlier this month.
