it's the hysterical parents and "experts" we need to quarantine, not the children
The way I see it (and have for a long time now) is that if ANY of this stuff worked, considering that a HUGE percentage of the population has taken part in all of this insanity (masking, sanitizing, distancing, getting shot up) there would literally be no one getting sick on the entire earth. I am still amazed that there are this many people who are dumbed down enough to still believe in any of this. Doesn't anyone just look around anymore? My goodness! The evidence of failure is all around and we literally have historical proof of protocols that actually DO work. I'll never get over this insanity for the rest of my days. Unbelievable.
... Parents might want to delay vaccination of their child until the FDA fully discloses the data used to approve the vaccine... in the year 2076... informed consent vs. a free slice of pizza...
A. F*c#ing. MEN. This is my number one covid pet peeve of all time and has been since April 2020. "Because of the pandemic... "Due to covid..." "The virus caused..." People are so brainwashed in this language to the point they literally hold their government and public health officials guiltless when it comes to covid policy. They think Mr. Covid Virus with his crown of spike proteins sits on high on his tiny little throne and demands masks, mass vaccinations, distancing, closing schools, quarantine of the healthy. It's the virus you see, nothing we can do about it.. And you are right - this doctor is sick and dim and I would not let someone like this within a mile of my kid. My son had a minor cough in school one day (dry throat) and was wicked away to the "isolation" room to stare at a wall until I could stop what I was doing and come to get him. How about this: give him a bottle of water and a throat lozenge and allow him to stay in class to learn. I feel sick for kids having to grow up with these ridiculous "health above all" cowards.
“So what” is indeed the secret to puncturing the propagandists’ hot air balloons.
Hilariously, wearing a literal tin-foil hat may actually be more protective against contracting COVID than masking according to this peer-reviewed paper: “There is a substantial overlap in pathobiology between COVID-19 and WCR -5G exposure” (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC8580522/).
Dr. Mattias Desment says (paraphrasing), that the Covid narrative offers a connectedness and “meaning making” to the isolation and spiritual meaninglessness of a purely secular modern life of moral relativity. The isolation and free-floating anxiety driven by the Covid lockdowns has a therapeutic in the ritual of the buying into the narrative. No matter how counterfactual and how absurd the narrative is from a practical perspective, the better it functions as a ritual—in fact the more absurd the better, the more purely the ritual becomes a sign to others that they belong to the group. The absurd Covid ritual serves as an incredibly strong bond among those otherwise lacking such meaning in their lives. Most people are actually reluctant to go back to the old normal because the Covid narrative of living for the good of the collective offers meaning making that was lacking in their lives. This is especially true of politicians who have been failing for decades to improve the plight of their constituents—and in fact have been ruining the lives of their constituents. Covid has given them multiple incentives: 1) grow their power and 2) provide for them a sense that they are actually leading and solving a problem. This is why those who question the narrative are subject to so much intolerance. Dissonant voices force the masses to confront returning to the status quo ante psychological state. For this reason, the dissonant voices incur the wrath of the cult—all the fear and loathing of their prior life is channeled at the those who challenge the narrative in which they have found meaning. They feel like they have a sacred, holy duty to be cruel and harsh in putting down dissonant voices in order to protect the collective. Perhaps the best hope of we dissidents is what Gustave Le Bon said (paraphrasing), “Everyone who would lead a mass formation had better be prepared to be killed by the masses.”
They are willing to give thousands of kids cardiac problems to maybe save 1 from a virus that is overwhelmingly not dangerous to them.
Must be nice to even have that. We just came off a 10-day quarantine because someone in my kid's class came into contact with someone who had COVID over Thanksgiving. It took them three days to contact trace to this kid and they claimed they were doing us a big favor by back dating the quarantine to the exposure rather than adding an additional three days. We got negative tests to no avail. Rather than answer our questions, they cancelled the PTA meeting scheduled last week and held the school board meeting (also last week) behind closed doors. The best we got was - "well, you'll just have to put up with this until we get 100% vaxxed!"
This is/was a well-regarded private school. Can't get to a red state fast enough. I'm not from Long Island anyways, will not miss it when we leave.
These parents would have betrayed Anne Frank.
If anxiety and fear work so well on these tools, then give it right back. Here's what I sent the superintendent of my daughter's school in response to more incentive messaging and the vaccine conditional contract tracing nonsense:
You don't have the popular support you think you have to provide "incentives" and to push for COVID "vaccinations." I expect that both political parties are scrambling to find a way out of the trap they've been lured into by big pharma. If so, whatever perception you have that there's political support is also likely to evaporate (they are starting to see that their precious status is threatened).
Go ahead and violate the civil rights of students and parents with your obvious discriminatory "quarantine" policy. Be sure to leave a good trail for the lawyers of plaintiffs to find. I'm sure there's already quite a bit of evidence of activism that goes far beyond any legality.
I see less arrogance in your messaging as you reference other parties who are behind the vaccine clinic. I also see that you still believe that incentives will be defensible. Could they be coercion from a legal standpoint?
Also, I don't see anything about natural immunity. Not offering proof of that as an option, to avoid what can only be seen as retribution, could be an issue later. Making parents and students anxious about "compliance" with no legal (see mandate injunctions) or political (soon) support seems reckless.
Might want to start thinking about who will be offered up for blame when the pendulum swings back on all of these failed "public health" measures.
There's a silent 30-40% out there that have a nagging feeling this has all been a public health disaster, not from the disease but from the response. They are going to soon reach "acceptance."
Expect a lot of "why were we told to quarantine healthy people?" And "why did we toss out the more rational pandemic plan for this mess?"
No lawyer myself. Not claiming to be one. I have done a lot of work with them in an advisory role to leadership.
I feel a moral obligation to return any attempts to promote anxiety in kind. In time, public officials will recognize that promoting anxiety with even vague retribution was a very bad move.
Good luck. You'll need it.
Best part of this thread...noting your post from 8 months ago with 29 comments and realizing that by the time I'm done typing you'll probably hit that mark (at 6:20 AM PST). Some trends of this pandemic are moving in the right direction.
One of the many reasons we escaped NYC last month:
I got THE phone call from my elementary school principal last Sunday. I was in close contact (I guess I passed the 15 minute rule, cause you know, Covid spreads after 14 minutes and 59 seconds and not a second sooner!) with a fellow “unvaxxed” teacher who had tested positive for Covid, and now I had to be quarantined, even if I tested negative, because I am also “unvaxxed”.
Another teacher who was also considered in close contact and IS vaxxed did not have to quarantine...because he’s vaxxed. Even if he had tested positive, he wouldn’t have had to quarantine, because, you know...”science”.
I return to work on Monday. While I was gone (just this week), a total of 6 classes were quarantined because of students testing positive. Gee... I wonder if this could be because of the jab rollout for 5-11 year olds. Hmmm...
So when you look at the WHO and CDC guidelines prior to Covid.… They literally go through all these NPI’s and say they’re ineffective but mechanistically we think they should work. With school closures they actually talk about the morality of it since it tends to affect lower socioeconomic status folks worse. So here is my take. We literally tried all of it and we have proven that they did nothing to mitigate disease. All the way up to a rushed vaccine. Hopefully people will look at the actual data over the next few years and we will not do this again. Right now I feel like we’re at the point of no one wanting to admit they were wrong.
I kept (and keep) using the phrase "totally unnecessary" for the last almost two years- everything. Masks, distancing, wiping down your groceries (yipes), using poison on your shopping cart and hands every time you enter a store or a gym (BIG NO!)shower curtains hung between tables in restaurants (wtf) and now vaccines. ALL. TOTALLY. UNNECESSARY. (except for those who made money and increased their power base because of some virus). I am waiting for that "you were right all along"- but those people just got their booster shots, so it's probably never coming my way.
Totally on point. Mental illness it is. Mass societal psychosis, and more disturbing is the glee with which, otherwise intelligent people, comply with it ... Not begrudgingly, but with a perverse enjoyment.
We need a searchable data base of these branch covidian cultists who happen to be doctors, why? So that we can ensure they don’t come within a light year of us if we need medical care.
