Influential Pro-Lockdown ‘Doctors’ on Twitter Exposed as Fake Accounts

Several highly-influential accounts for pro-lockdown “doctors” on Twitter have been exposed as fakes.

The accounts, which were widely believed to be genuine, pushed social media users to support lockdowns, mask mandates, vaccines, and other government-imposed pandemic-related measures.

These fake accounts spreading Covid misinformation were left to flourish while Twitter was busy cracking down on medical experts who defied the manufactured “consensus” on the pandemic response.

These viral influencers were exposed as fake accounts in a report by the San Francisco Standard.

One such example was an account called “Dr. Robert Honeyman.”

Honeyman used “they/them” pronouns, and claimed to have lost a sister to COVID-19 in November 2022.

That tweet racked up over 43,000 likes and 4,000 retweets.

The profile photo associated with “Honeyman’s” account was a stock photo, Miller notes.

According to the Standard, the supposed husband, Patrick Honeyman, was a photo of an insurance professional who lives in Wayne, Indiana.

The Standard reported that they gained influence by leveraging “woke” virtue-signaling.

“The two fake doctors, whose accounts urged extreme caution about Covid-19, were part of a network of at least four fake accounts that touted their ties to the LGBTQ+ community, vocally advocated for mask-wearing and social distancing, and dished out criticism to those they felt were not taking the pandemic seriously,” the report notes.

Dr. Gerold Fischer, another one of the fake accounts, “displayed rainbow, trans and Ukrainian flags next to his name and described himself as ‘an ally for all in the #LGBQT+ Community. #WearAMask,’” the report adds.

Dr. Steve “Ste” Ville, a fourth account, claimed affiliation with the University of Antwerp.

Ville described himself as an “LGBTQ+ Ally” and a “Proud Mask Wearer.”

The fake accounts were able to manipulate “woke” culture and then spread Covid misinformation by preying upon the Left’s craving for confirmation bias.

These “doctors” aligned themselves with left-wing thinking: They were scared of the virus, believed in the government’s pandemic agenda, and were part of the LGBTQ+ community, and they supported Ukraine.

Ian Miller, a journalist who has worked tirelessly to debunk false claims that “masks work” to stop the spread of Covid-19, recently reported on the issue.

The fake accounts were originally uncovered by Joshua Gutterman Tranen, the Standard reported.

Gutterman Tranen is a self-described “gay writer” who is pursuing a master’s of fine arts at Bennington College.

He posted a thread on the Honeymans, which uncovered unusually vocal support for Chinese lockdowns.

“Come on china!” Robert Honeyman wrote in a November 27 tweet.

“Stop protesting, I wish we had similar lockdown measures here.”

While Twitter allowed such fake accounts to operate with free reign on the platform, it was actively censoring and suppressing Covid experts.

The installment of the “Twitter Files” released in late December shows that Harvard epidemiologist Martin Kulldorff was targeted by Twitter for censorship.

When asked if younger people who had already been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus needed to be vaccinated, Dr. Kulldorff replied, “No. Thinking that everyone must be vaccinated is as scientifically flawed as thinking that nobody should.

“Covid vaccines are important for older high-risk people, and their caretakers.

“Those with prior natural infection do no need it. Nor children.”

As journalist David Zweig of “The Atlantic” and other publications noted, this drew the attention of Twitter moderators.

“Internal emails show an ‘intent to action’ by a moderator, saying Kulldorff’s tweet violated the company’s Covid-19 misinformation policy and claimed he shared ‘false information’,” Zweig reported.

“But Kulldorff’s statement was an expert’s opinion—one which also happened to be in line with vaccine policies in numerous other countries,” he continued.

“Yet it was deemed ‘false information’ by Twitter moderators merely because it differed from CDC guidelines.”

“After Twitter took action, Kulldorff’s tweet was slapped with a ‘Misleading’ label and all replies and likes were shut off, throttling the tweet’s ability to be seen and shared by many people, the ostensible core function of the platform.”

By allowing fake accounts pushing misinformation to flourish while suppressing experts who held scientifically valid positions, Twitter’s actions helped manufacture a “Covid consensus.”

Twitter, along with other Big Tech companies, did immense damage to the medical profession by undermining the scientific method and the public policy process.

Big Tech censorship has become a threat to America’s long-standing proof that open debate in a free society will always ultimately lead to the best outcomes.
