No one played a bigger and earlier role in attacking lockdowns than we at CTUP. We exposed these assaults on freedom and common sense as wholly ineffective and ruinous to the economy. Now nearly everyone with a brain admits we were right.
But apparently not Mark Cuban – the outspoken owner of the Dallas Mavericks and a regular panelist on CNBC’s “Shark Tank.” Cuban decided to tweet some unsolicited advice on how to deal with “medical info and misinformation” to new Twitter owner Elon Musk.
One of our allies, Dr. Jay Bhattacharya of Stanford University, and one of the original co-signers of the anti-lockdown Great Barrington Declaration, weighed in:
Cuban didn’t challenge the deplorable record of lockdowns. Instead, he attacked those of us who were right about lockdowns for being right; “While you were shouting to try to be proven right, all you did was add to the uncertainty as everyone made decisions using ever-evolving data. And now, again, your big accomplishment appears to be you think you were proven right.”
So Cuban still defends the false scare campaign about Covid. Cuban and other lockdown supporters have demonstrated that they don’t want to have a real debate on the evidence or the merits of their position. Because they were dead wrong.
