ICYMI: Rubio on Hannity

Jun 4, 2021 | Press Releases

Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Hannity to discuss the power of big tech companies, the origins of COVID-19, and more. Watch the full interview here, and see below for excerpts. 

On the unrestrained power of big tech companies: 
“They have become the new gatekeepers of the public square in American politics… Five companies in America now have the power to basically wipe anybody out and silence anyone. 
“Amazon, Google, Facebook, Twitter, they all get together, and they decide — Apple, they get together and decide, we’re going to wipe somebody out. You’re done. There’s nowhere for you to communicate. You can’t even get web services, and you can’t communicate to the outside world your views.
“More than that, they now have put themselves in a position of determining what news can be re-reported. We remember those articles about Hunter Biden, and they quashed the New York Post stories. They wouldn’t let it be spread.
“And now for the first time, we’ve seen them have to go back and remove a ban on stories about the origins of the COVID-19 virus because they’ve proven to be untrue. This is the danger here — you have a bunch of unelected, unaccountable, anonymous people deciding what we’re allowed to say to one another and what we’re allowed to share. That’s a very dangerous moment. They have assumed basically governmental-type powers without being accountable to anyone.”
On the origin of COVID-19: 
“Here’s what we knew from the very beginning, right? This is what we knew from the very beginning. And you put all the circumstantial evidence together and then it lends to some level of conclusion at least, okay?
“You have a virus that we know the Chinese are experimenting with in that lab and a lab we know that has… safety problems. We know for a fact that messing around with viruses and lab accidents have led to outbreaks in the past. That happened with SARS back in the day — that two different outbreaks from researchers that were infected. And, by the way, coincidence out of coincidence, this outbreak started in the very city where that lab is located. There isn’t a bat cave — and Wuhan is an enormous city. It’s like the size of Manhattan. There’s no bat caves there.
“And by the way, under SARS, they found the animal that spread it within four months. Under MERS, they found the animal that spread it within nine months. Still, to this day, the Chinese have not said this is the animal that first spread it over to a human being.
“And you put all of that together, and that’s why there are a lot of people that say at a minimum — at a minimum, the lab leak theory is at least as credible as the fact that it would carry over naturally, if not more so because of the circumstantial evidence.”
On unidentified aerial phenomenon: 
“People immediately start thinking about extraterrestrials and little green men. We’re not at that stage here. What we’re saying is there are things that are not ours — there are things that are not ours flying over military installations — we don’t know what they are… They’re talking about these things flying around. We just don’t know what they are. We need to know what they are.”
