Although a friend describes the latest as “pandemic porn” I will refrain from using that pithy label.
However, it is clear that government lies about COVID-19 are as old as the virus itself. And older than the actual pandemic. We can start with the Chinese Communist Party/Government lies before anyone else (that we know of) was even aware of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. And most recently we have the FedGov CDC’s latest lies, published online yesterday, on variants. (No, I haven’t read it or studied it: just briefly skimmed parts of it – but it is reasonable to assume that it, like everything else the CDC has put out, is full of lies.)
Apparently the virus was spreading months before the CCP allowed it to be mentioned: we still do not know how many people in Wuhan had it or died from it BEFORE it was spread to the rest of the world. And how many have died since. The lies have come out of Wuhan and Beijing constantly since then.
Yes, I DO KNOW THAT the CCP is a different government than the FedGov and the Fifty State governments we suffer under. But there is more in common between them than not – and they are growing more and more alike with each passing day.
The latest lies come out regarding the omicron variant and South Africa. This isn’t science: this is propaganda. And religious propaganda at that: the State as god. Latest news regards three people who have brought Omicron to the States: at least one in California, one in Minnesota, and one in Colorado. If I understand correctly they were all “fully vaccinated” but still got the disease and are capable of spreading the nasty stuff. Imagine that Uncle Joe and Faucet have upped their proclamations of doom and ever more strident demands for mandates of (pathetic) vaccination, (worthless) masking, and all the other things. International travelers must test negatively within one day of coming to the US. These demands and fear are echoed by the likes of Newsom, King, and Polis – and their fellow governors in more than half of our American States. And in once (briefly) free Germany, Die Fueherin Merkel has ordered unvaccinated people to stay out of bars, restaurants, and all but “essential” stores. And threatened mandatory vaccination of the unwilling, to be rubberstamped by the Bundestag as soon as February. (No doubt the wearing of yellow crowns will follow.)
Why can we be sure these things are lies? At best, twisting of the truth?
Consider Uncle Joe’s actions: if he had been serious about preventing the variant’s spread to the States from South Africa, he would NOT have delayed establishing the embargo. NOR would he have allowed blanket exemptions for Americans to continue to travel back to the States. Viruses don’t look at people’s passwords to see which body to infect. And strange isn’t it? People from Europe, from Asia, from Australia have to be tested. But people coming across the border into Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California? Testing? Of course not – THAT would be racist.
But the big lie, in various forms, is that government can do ANY thing significant that can help with this pandemic. (Or for that matter, that government can do anything right – anytime something DOES work out well with government is akin to a stopped (analog) clock being right twice a day.) Indeed, they continue to lie that government actions are NOT destroying people’s lives, prosperity, or peace.
As for the omicron variant? While most of the politicians, the health Nazis, and the media scream about how millions more will die? We find out that those infected by the new variant suffer “very mild symptoms.”
Why keep lying? Because the liars are slowly wearing down more and more people’s natural resistance to the government garbage being spread. And as they silence more and more objectors in the health care profession, in non-mainstream media, and in the public eye (often cancelling them) the more people are going to submit.
But it is not all working in their interests. More and more people, including employees of massive businesses and government agencies, are rejecting the mandates. And more and more loudly.
But unless more people are vocal about their refusal to submit, those who do so loudly are just easy targets for those who hate liberty, who worship government (and so-called “science”), and who seek control.
