It all started with this video a month ago, and yesterday, the state of Oregon revoked the medical license of the speaker Dr. Steven LaTulippe for ‘unprofessional and dishonorable conduct.’

“I want you to know that I never shut down during the entire COVID season, from the time it was declared till now,” LaTulippe told the crowd. “I hate to tell you this — it might scare you — but I and my staff, none of us once wore a mask in my clinic. And how many problems did we have in our clinic from that? Zero. Absolutely none.”

The doctor called the lockdowns a threat to the American people, freedom, and the Constitution, and petitioned the crowd to remove their “mask of shame.”  While the physician acknowledged the virus was real, LaTulippe said it is “a common cold virus that has been with us forever.”

“Please don’t be duped. You have an immune system,” LaTulippe said.

LaTulippe also said he has treated 75 cases of the coronavirus and every one of his patients got better in a week. “Don’t let them put in a state of fear,” the doctor urged. “That is oppression.”

For his heresy, the Oregon Medical Board issued an emergency suspension of LaTulippe’s license, finding the doctor engaged in “unprofessional” and “dishonorable” conduct, NBC reports.

The emergency suspension claims LaTulippe told a patient in July that asymptomatic people should not be tested and that wearing a face mask does not prevent transmission of the virus. LaTulippe reportedly directed the patient not to self-isolate because, according to LaTulippe, exposing other people to the virus would help those people build immunities against the disease.
