remember when i told you that it would soon be difficult to find anyone who admitted to having been in favor of most of these draconian covid mitigations?
well take a good look:
here is megan “lock down, mask up, and close the schools” ranney, who so memorably got caught telling fibs about how full the hospitals were clarifying for us what “we knew in RI in summer 2020.”…
of course, one of a skeptical bent might be induced to ask:
but, of course, the internet remembers and so, we do not have to guess.
here is megan herself in her own words from, wait for it, the summer of 2020.
quite a different tune “we” were singing back then, no?
this will go on and on. now that this is the losing side and the harms it inflicted to no good purpose are clear, it’s a very low status position to have held.
everyone is going to change jerseys and claim they were always a good guy.
this is a prevarication that they should not be allowed to get away with. those who cheer led for this mess should not retain position and credibility by pretending they opposed it.
that will sentence us all to a repeat of this movie and the sequel will be worse, i promise.
and this is why it’s important to call this out.
allowing past arsonists to claim they were firefighters is not a recipe for future conflagration mitigation.
Memory and IQ of a goldfish, attitude of a lemming
These people deserve to be mocked mercilessly.
The only problem is that just last month Walensky said they wanted to give people a “break” from WuFlu rules which implies that the rules can / will return. I imagine the current Jersey switchers will revert to type & ask for harder & faster if the rules come back. It’s not so different from our “betters” who felt no guilt or shame - much less a need to apologize - when caught flaunting every rule they demanded of us.
They aren’t done w/ this (or the next crisis du jour) by a long shot, IMO
Keep the pressure on Gato! Rip them a new one every chance you get. You are awesome.
Remember, history is written by the victors!
Time for the truthtellers to win!
they seem to think they can just lie and get away with it...brings to mind a favorite phrase of my grandmother's. They are so crooked they could dance under a snake with a topcoat on.
I ask myself "how can people repeat the mistakes of the past? Does no one remember Nuremberg and the lessons we learned?"
I answer myself: "they remember Nuremberg perfectly well. They understand that 'following orders' does not constitute a satisfactory defense. This is why they opt for outright revisionism instead."
100% Make then admit to the failure of the policies they recommends or we will be dealing with this again very soon.
I am old enough to remember when medical staff were posting that the unvaxxed should be denied medical care. Is this still a thing?
on another note--I use twitter little except to troll libs and "experts". yesterday I accused Dr. Vincent Hill of WHO of crimes against humanity. gutless scum. lamp posts on the horizon.
There is another inconvenient tweet by Dr Ranney: https://twitter.com/meganranney/status/1338841290100903937
Her twitter thread on vaccines from December 2020 is full of all kinds of inaccurate stuff, by today's standards. You know, stuff that could be called mis- and disinformation or just plain old lying to the American people....
As a physician and epidemiologist I never entertained saying the vaccines were safe nor effective. The trials were underpowered and the 95% effective against infection mantra was just not palatable to me to spread. The vaccine safety surveillance system is archaic except for the extremely biased V-safe system.
Yes, el Gato Malo, thank you for this. We must call these people out on this and we must not allow their past statements to go unexplained. I posted Dr Ranney's July 2020 tweet under her current one noting that dis and mis information may result from changes over time.
Plenty of random people doing this, but for a "public health official" to do this in a public capacity is, in my opinion, criminal. I saw something this morning that a woman who "died of covid" in 2020 after supposedly catching it from a school child, whose death was thoroughly sensationalized here in Chicago, turned out to have died from alcohol poisoning. So who originated the story that she died from covid? For a policymaker to knowingly use a fake story, fake data, etc. to push an agenda is no different than calling in a false bomb threat or CNN saying Iraqi troops were throwing babies out of incubators.
There are some grey areas for "truth" that you don't want to criminalize to protect free speech, but if an individual can sue for libel, why can't an entire country?
LOL and fyi, https://endgameseries.com/sneak-peek/david-martin... filed a lawsuit against Biden etc. for calling the jabs vaccines, for starters...
“…everyone is going to change jerseys and claim they were always a good guy.”
I’m on record. I was always the good guy.
The shamelessness and hypocrisy of these people, the villains who denied children an education and bankrupted small businesses en masse is astonishing.
They are even more brazen liars than Bernie Madoff. And are destructive on a vastly greater scale.
I'm old enough to remember when this same lady prototype would have thrown a hot coffee in your face for not wearing a mask.
More than one of us has thrown that old tweet back in her Twitter face.
Removing history does help to solidify the idea they are never wrong. Why change the behavior when they can just change the facts & feel like a hefty dose of Chanel No. 5 live the fantasy!
Your daily posts are a breath of fresh air.
I won’t even piss on them when they are on fire.
Let ‘em burn.
I sent her a little luv note just now. suggest all us do the same.
Ranney is a plague on Rhode Island. She advises the RIDOH along with her spineless pal Ashish Jha. She is a full-on lefty activist and self promoter, period. A prime example of the very worst type of folks brought forth by the C19 fiasco. Meanwhile she and Ashish have been hawking online strategy seminars for political and business leaders on Covid strategy, at $2k/seat.
I get it - they destroyed our children, our businesses, and our peaceful society. But what are we to do with them now? If we had any power over these people, they would not have been able to do all this damage. What power do we have now? Sincere question.
Pepperidge Farm remembers...
They want credit for NPIs, I think we should give to them.
Good and hard.
Trust me my friend there are some of us who have, until now, questioned our calling in life. Mine is now clear. I will spend my days making these people pay dearly for their hubris the last two years.
I just hope Megan Ranney is able to get as many boosters as she wants.
Meanwhile, in Canada, the Medical Officer in BC issued this earlier this week, as in 2022:
I am not in BC (thank God), but my friend is, and I so wish someone would respond to the garbage talking points being spewed in this memo.
She was still advocating for COVID-19 restrictions 02/04/2022.
"The United States of Amnesia"
I will never forget.
News flash for piss poor ignorant Megan Ranney-take your MD and PHD and shove it up your ass-that is all your credentials are worth and all that comes out of your mouth is shit.
Might she claim that in the summer 2020 she was stuck in the mass formation psychosis and not responsible for her words or actions? In that case we should celebrate that she is now free!
I love bad cats!!
A true Covidian will see no conflict between those two tweets, and will say that keeping schools open was conditional on "safety", which was determined by N daily "cases", where N is some arbitrary and ever-changing number.
I just spent some time going through Ranney's Twitter feed. Talk about misinformation!! I am now more stupid from reading her drivel, but, ironically, more informed on the stay of medical care in the US. Barring being on the receiving end of a gunshot wound, I doubt I ever willing go to see a doctor again, they appear to all be PharmaKing quacks.
She should be reported to the surgeon general for covid misinformation. www.surgeongeneral.gov/rfi
I've already reported the NYS dept of health.
Ms BossyPants (from a prior post) retweets a lot of Megan Ranney.
I’m on my phone now but will paste those tweets together for @DefiantLs if someone doesn’t get to it first (and please do, these experts need shaming)
Honestly, we are all on long leashes … like mad dogs or skillful cats we need to slip the tightening noose.
And dis - obey!!!!
When pilpul fails, the fallback is chutzpah.
This is not a 'hubris encounters nemesis, leading to eventual metanoia'. That's not how they roll.
This is more akin to "my pilpul is now shown to be bullshit, so I'm-a just pretend I said the opposite all along."
It sort of reminds me of those skits that happen in some situation comedies when a person "remembers" a past event and it is nothing like it really was.
There are so many supposedly educated people who received their "education" at colleges that have as their criteria: Pay, Show up, Do the minimal amount of work required, Say the right stuff, and in some cases for more advanced degrees --- kiss the right asses.
Higher education has gotten a lot lower over the past 40 to 50 years. Yes there are plenty of people who actually learn all kinds of things because of self motivation but many, many people with degrees know jack shit. This has devalued degrees.
We need a new term for these degree holders who know jack shit. I like Diseducated.
None of this is sour grapes. I have a BS with triple majors and an MA.
So, I guess the apologies aren't coming are they?
Some people are slow to change their jerseys. Mask wearing is still widespread on the north side of the City of Chicago. I see this in stores, on the sidewalks, and elsewhere. For example, during a visit to a public librarary branch in the afternoon two days ago (8th March), I noticed that almost everyone was wearing a mask. Most patrons, even the people who looked homeless, were masked. All of the library staff on the floor were masked, although the security guard had hers on her chin when I entered. Among perhaps 20 people, I saw just two others who were unmasked in the proper way. One is a middle aged white male, and the other, a white girl of about 8. A prominent sign on the front door indicates that masks are optional.
Pretty much concrete evidence from 2015 about the lab "leak". They explain everything in detail. 35 and on. You wanna listen to it cat.
Narrated by Ralph Baric himself.
"Vincent, Rich, and Kathy speak with Ralph and Vineet about their research on the potential of SARS-like bat coronaviruses to infect human cells and cause disease in mice."
An old punishment for women telling tales, spreading lies, and general slander was they had to wear a device which would cut their tongue if they spoke.
Men got a public flogging instead.
And both had to wear a special hat in church.
Musing aloud, but they weren't stupid way back when.
We need a clever term for that- like TDS, Branch Covidian, Karen, etc. Any ideas? I have to eat dinner before I can brainstorm. Hard enough remembering examples.
The missing link: revisionist history combined with suppression of inconvenient truths as "misinformation" or "extremists propaganda". When you quote someone's past statements the can and will claim you made that up - that the "tweet" copied was fraudulently fabricated by some right wing extremist conspiracy.
Of course we've seen this before. Even before 2020. But this has been a mainstay of the last 2 years. A guy who has many patents and scientific publications on his work on mRNA technology is called "misinformation" because he questions the validity of how the technology is being characterized by the media and politicians. Everyone who was critical of Trump's attempt to restrict entry from certain countries (OK I'll say it - China) in late 2019 did a 180 by March 2020. WHO had on their website a recommendation that governments invoke travel restrictions. The day Trump suggested some, WHO took that recommendation down and said travel restrictions were NOT warranted. Pretty much at every step this kind of flip flop fraud has been like gravity: it is inevitable and never fading. This is of course just one of many, many types of fraud that have become the mainstream methodology.
No worry. It'll all be OK. I am from the government and I am here to help. Just submit and comply....
I love how our gato can turn a phrase without an opposable thumb.
Another Twitter MD impervious to reason and evidence. So many of them! It's sloppy logic to blame masks for interrupting literacy development in young children? Um, no. That's called the truth you self absorbed monstrous turd!
Dropping this here and elsewhere for some meme-warriors to weaponize...
Crossing the wires of the propagandized, I would like to ask with false naiveté:
"Hmmm, I was just thinking, maybe it's not such a good idea to risk civilizational incineration on behalf of a country that is less than 40% Vaccinated! 🤔"
It's like, they'll hand out Kalashnikovs to their babushkas, but they don't even care enough to protect them from the terrible coronavirus!!
