things we should not forget
remember when "the experts" thought this was an awesome flex to assert their alleged authority right before they were wrong about absolutely everything and ran the world into a ditch so they could chase epidemiological fairy stories?
and so should you.
it was an argument that, on the surface, was quite compelling:
“stay in your lane. you’re not an expert. we’re the experts around here. listen to us and do what we say! you would not try to fly your own 737. why do you think you’re qualified to decide how to act during a respiratory disease pandemic?”
there were, of course, some problems with this argument, predominantly that it was as disingenuous as it was manipulative and rooted in false analogy.
not only were most of these “experts” not expert at all, but they all lied, outright and to your face, right from the start and went 180 degrees against what they knew to be true.
because one simple fact shall always remain:
and oh boy did we get a serious global world tour of that one.
and no one who would remain free should ever, ever forget it.
these people were complete and total frauds and it was clear from the word go.
everyone knew that masks don’t work. they knew it for years. read the dates here. it was not some obscure fact, it was bedrock epidemiological canon.
In the clip, Dr Fauci says “There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask. When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a little bit better and it might even block a droplet, but it’s not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is. And, often, there are unintended consequences — people keep fiddling with the mask and they keep touching their face.”
Fauci made this comment on an interview with 60 Minutes on March 8, during the early stages of the novel coronavirus outbreak in the United States. A longer extract of the interview is visible youtu.be/PRa6t_e7dgI
even current mask virtue signaling aficionado and noted epi-fabulist jerome adams knew better.
all these folks and 100 more like them flip flopped and went full masktard. the science did not change. it flat out became more and more clear.
the standing guidelines said “this does not work.”
the WHO studies said “this does not work.”
and all the high quality evidence that emerged proved one more than, wait for it… “this does not work.”
the studies trotted out to support these claims were absurd. they lacked clinical outcomes, control groups, basic soundness in their structure, and in many cases (yes CDC kansas study, i’m looking at you) were full blown outright, provable fraud. they failed in schools. they failed everywhere. and no, they do not work as source control and this was long known. this was a made up talking point to falsely frame mask wear as societal duty and not personal choice.
and do not for a minute believe the outlandish “noble deception” pivot of “well, we lied to you about wearing masks so there would be enough for healthcare workers.”
this is not remotely true. it’s a full blown fabrication. and you should really, really hope it is, because if it isn’t, these people are outright psychopaths.
think about it: fauci flat out said “hey, sure you can go on a cruise. have fun!” and “no, you do not need a mask to fly” when asked by both the public and by his personal friends in private emails.
More than a month before the World Health Organization labeled the COVID-19 outbreak a global pandemic, Dr. Anthony Fauci received an email asking whether the writer should wear a face mask while traveling.
“Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection,” Fauci wrote back in a Feb. 5 message. “The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material.”
The country’s leading infectious disease expert went on to say he would not recommend the writer wear a mask during travel to a “very low risk location.”
jerome was providing an example of flying without a mask and virtue signaling about it. lots of people were.
if they really knew it was dangerous and chose to do that rather than say “well, maybe consider staying home” and needlessly exposed people to danger they knew existed to spare a little PPE for docs, then they are psycho.
that’s an outright evil act deliberately performed. the fact that it even occurred to them that this might be a valid excuse speaks poorly of their judgement and the purely tactical nature of their morality.
and obviously, it did not end there. these same people pushed lockdowns, also known not to work. they claimed 2 weeks, then 4, then forever.
tony, “no need to wear a mask on a plane” fauci now says you may need to wear masks on planes forever.
of course, these are the same folks that told you that the covid vaccines would stop spread and infection and be a “dead end” for the virus.
this was astonishingly wrong. it’s becoming unavoidably clear that the leaky vaccines are now accentuating, not mitigating spread and that this trend looks to be getting worse.
and so now, they are trying to change the data to hide it.
these people are political hacks, scam artists, and panicked sheep, not “experts.” the field of epidemiology has disgraced itself utterly to the point where real questions about whether this is even a real area of knowledge populated by real experts are not only warranted but demanded.
their models were a joke.
their claims were malleable and absurd.
and a bunch of amateurs with actual biological, modeling, and statistics skills ran rings around them.
from the very beginning “team reality” shredded the imperial college scare models and the idiocy of lockdowns. it took what, 2 months for many of us to have conclusively disproved all of this?
so just what is the point of these people whose incompetence is exceeded only by their arrogance?
they are not the solution. they are the problem.
are we seriously supposed to continue to tolerate the narcissism hobbit and his merry band of virus hotwirers who look to have flat out paid to create covid 19 then lied about it (even under oath) as they strut the stage claiming they saved us despite having been nothing but wrong and done nothing but damage?
any sane agency would never have allowed a vaccine this poorly tested to market and if they had, would have instantly pulled it when it started killing people and proved to be non-sterilizing. leaky vaccines are a disaster and anyone even remotely knowledgeable in the space knows that. perhaps this is why the top vaccine people at FDA quit in disgust.
so, this is not some traveler out of nowhere looking the take the controls from the captain.
this is a whole cabin that has just watched this crew crash 5 planes in a row and explode them into fireballs saying “no way do i want to be on anything you are piloting” and then choosing to take a bus instead.
these agencies are incompetent to make public health policy. they cannot collect or handle data, they ignore well established guidelines, make up policy out of superstition and performance art, kowtow to politics, and wreck the world. they have done untold harm and absolutely no good.
even when they did know what to do, they chose not to out of political featly or personal panic. it was like watching a heart surgeon lose his nerve in the OR and reach for the magic healing crystals instead of a grafting tool.
and they are still at it, justifying themselves, claiming they saved us, claiming they should have more power in the future and making outlandish claims like “the courts have no business limiting the CDC” as though they are above the law.
these folks presume their right to do this to you again.
it falls to us to ensure that they do not have it.
they are neither competent, sensible, nor moral.
they will not get smarter or better next time nor will their interests align any less horribly with yours.
it’s long past time we started flying this thing ourselves.
