Dr. Lee Merritt joined Ardis on the Oct. 6 edition of his show, where both medical experts talked about SARS-CoV-2 as a tool for depopulation. Merritt, a surgeon by practice, is one of the many doctors critical of public health measures to control COVID-19 like wearing masks.
In an April 2021 interview with Jeff Dornik of "Freedom One-on-One," she reiterated that face coverings are ultimately all about making people obey without question. "Masks are a symbol of subservience. In occult rituals, they wear masks as a sign of transformation. It means 'I will be silent, I will obey,'" Merritt said.
Merritt's anti-mask stance has led to her ban on multiple platforms. "And boy, I got banned from every place just by saying that masks don't work," she quips.
The surgeon tells Ardis about her theory that the SARS-CoV-2 is indeed a bioweapon, citing a study by Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD) researchers. The study, first posted on Jan. 31, 2020 by lead author Prashant Pradhan and his colleagues, noted that there were four insertions in the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. These insertions, while present in all viral samples in the gene data bank the team scrutinized, appear to be man-made.
"We found [four] insertions in the spike glycoprotein which are unique to the [2019 novel coronavirus] and are not present in other coronaviruses. The findings of [four] unique inserts … which have [similarities with] amino acid residues in key structural proteins of HIV-1 is unlikely to be fortuitous in nature," the researchers wrote.
Merritt comments: "What they showed is that every one of the samples that were reported to the gene data bank had these four insertions that were clearly man-made. In other words – these didn't just come out of nature and that those insertions are in every sample, in exactly the same position."
However, Pradhan and his IITD colleagues would find themselves at the other end of censorship from the powers that be. "These guys published it, it's a really good article but it's hard to find now. What happened is that the article was forcibly withdrawn," Merritt says.
She continues: "When [the study] first went up, it had this 'withdrawn' thing right away because they forced these guys to withdraw it under protest. And then I knew there was something up when [conservative news website] ZeroHedge, that simply reported on that article got de-platformed. What the heck, that's not something we see in science – that's not right."
The surgeon tells Ardis that based on her learning during her time in the military, intense censorships such as the one experienced by Pradhan and his team and ZeroHedge mean that the possibility of SARS-CoV-2 being a bioweapon is very much likely. "When you're catching that kind of flak, you're over a big target. So I thought through it right away – this is a bioweapon," Merritt says.
She also denounces the possibility of zoonosis, or the pathogen jumping from animals to humans. Merritt argues: "Let's just look at what happened here. The narrative that they want you to believe is essentially that after living in commensal bliss with humans for millennia, this bat virus suddenly leaped out of bat soup and infected a person perfectly. It was perfectly formed to infect people." (Related: Wuhan Institute of Virology pulls all photos and evidence showing workers handling tainted bats without protective gear.)
"Anybody that studies diseases and viruses and stuff knows that when you're around your cats, you don't get sick with cat virus and they don't get sick with yours. It doesn't work that way. But this one just happened to leap out of this bat soup and it created a pandemic without any warning," Merritt continues.
She also squashes the narrative that the COVID-19 pandemic originated at the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, just eight miles (13 kilometers) away from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
"This was theoretically possible because of a dirty meat market in Wuhan. Now, this meat market just happened to be eight miles from the only level four bioweapons virology lab in the country – but that had nothing to do with it … and it just goes on and one," she says. (Related: Peter Daszak still insists Wuhan coronavirus came from wet market despite evidence of laboratory origins.)
Merritt tells Ardis what she thinks is the actual reason behind the ongoing pandemic. "We're the focus of a huge psy-op. You have to say that since the time of Plato, tyrants have always talked about depopulation, about there being too many people for them to control. And that is, I think, the motive behind this," Merritt says.
