Cardiac Arrest in Athletes by Robert W Malone MD, MS for Who Is Robert Malone – SubStack
What is known and knowable
I have been asked to speculate about the cardiac arrest suffered by Damar Hamlin. First off, I truly believe that giving his physicians and trainers space to work professionally is critical: we need to allow them to do the tests, diagnostics and whatever procedures need to be performed outside of the glare of corporate media AND internet armchair physicians. We won’t get the details we would like at the moment we would like, and that is just the way things are. Corporate media and the news cycle are monsters, and they prey on these types of stories and controversies, which generate clicks, views, likes and revenue. “If it bleeds, it leads”. Let’s not play into this please. Medicine (and pathologic diagnosis) does not work by committee, or by press edict, and physicians do not need the stress of the press on their backs demanding immediate commentary.
Likewise, his family deserves privacy. I know what it is like to have the press and the public think that they are entitled to know about every aspect of a public person’s life. To be put under the microscope. For these reasons, I have refrained from making comments on social media until today.
However, the press and the social media armchair physicians being who they are – the pro and against forces arguing that this injury is (or is not) vaccine related are not going to stop just because it is the right thing to do. I am being hounded for what I think, and for what my clinical opinion is (I don’t have one, the young gentleman is not my patient). But still, my “wait and see what his physicians say” response doesn’t sit well with many that are constantly seeking an opportunity to accuse of the defamatory sin of “controlled opposition”.
Watching this all play out in the media and on-line, I do have some thoughts that I would like to share. First, I think it is irresponsible for the state-sponsored press to be declaring that this was not due in some part to a vaccine injury this early in the game. Because we don’t know, no one does – not even his physicians. I speculate that assuming he got vaccinated and boosted is probably a reasonable inference, given it is the policy of his team that there is 100% compliance with COVID vaccine mandates. The corporate press getting in and attempting to skew the public opinion is a despicable move, but typical. Particularly when these attempts involve both strong arming and attacking their “opponents” while using the tragic injury of a young man as a weapon.
