watch as the messaging shifts once more
Deborah Birx needs to be cancelled. She is incompetency incarnate. She is the reason we are where we are with the lockdowns, testing and masking. Fauci was a small player in all this. If you haven't read Scott Atlas's book, A Plague Upon Our House, put it on your Summer list.
Because it's safe, and effective, and the government tells you.

Because the government tells you.
"Shut up!" they explained.
This article and your previous one with the martial arts "woo-woo" analogy are probably your best/most important ones to date.
(Funny I was thinking of that scene in one of the Karate Kid movies where Myagi mocked that guy who was always making that "waaaaww" noise when he fought. Did these little hand-waves too.)
It occurred to me that the real reason they imposed all these useless ridiculous draconian NPIs is NOT because they were under the delusion that they worked (they knew damn well that they wouldn't), but rather to inconvenience everyone to the point where they'd gladly accept the poison shots just to get out from under the restrictions. Witness what happened in 2015 in Ontario when a "mask or vax" edict was issued to hospital staff. The nurses union balked and took them to arbitration, and won their case because the government "experts" had to acknowledge that there was no science to support the notion that masks offered anything in the way of protection. So why did they demand that workers who refused the flu shot put a mask on? Obviously not for anyone's protection, but to annoy/inconvenience them to the point that would relent and take the shot they didn't want. Fast forward to 2020 and they pulled exactly the same stunt.
My paradigm shift that took place over the best few years is exemplified by the fact that people like “el gato malo” and “Eugyppius” make far more sense and are far more credible than the New York Times, the CDC, and even fucking Nature. It’s not a world I want to be living in. Being able to read NYT in the morning, take it at face value, and get on with my day, sharing a common set of facts with the people around me, would be a much easier world to live in. But it’s just become undeniable over the past few years that this is not the world we live in. And probably never was. In that respect, Covid was invaluable for revealing the man behind the curtain.
“it need not be malice to become functionally evil. it need only be incompetent and arrogant and the outcome is the same. “
Arrogance, lust for power, real world incompetence, legends in their own minds. Forced removal by their short hairs works for me. You?
Attended a dinner last night where a fellow diner proudly announced having gotten their 4th shot yesterday. Oh the cognitive dissonance.....
I was walking my dog yesterday and saw 20 kids about age 5-6, walking with their teachers on the opposite sidewalk, all wearing masks. I do not know if they are church school kids or public school, either way I thought, even now, this late in the narrative, what madness is this? What sort of parent is ok with this? Get me out of this god damned city.
You just described Canada and it’s health “authorities”.
We live in a gilded cage here, unable to leave the country, because, as the Crime Minister says “we are still in an epidemic!”.
Airports, planes and trains apparently are still dangerous Covid factories, where the bug hides, ready to pounce at a moments notice on unsuspecting mask less vermin.
But, magically, the little Covid bug doesn’t exist beyond those filthy airport facilities, as we live freely without face diapers in the rest of Canuckistan, except in hospitals, health facilities and old falls homes.
This game of peekaboo with the magic Covid bug has been going on since Day One with Canada’s health Gestapo, and the Canadian sheep just keep nodding their heads in strict obeyance.
The Lieberal government continues its crimes against humanity and its overt trashing of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Global WEF puppets run this country
Unsuprisingly, what's going on right now in China has received from what I can tell zero attention from the mainstream media. It's pretty close to the ideal counterfactual of what would've happened had we "pandemiced hard enough", and it ain't pretty.
I don't know how many times I've said it over the last couple years -- I can be the dumbest person on the planet but you still have to explain the actual data in the actual real world. They can't, so they fling insults and pretend we haven't been correctly predicting virus activity for almost two years at this point.
I don't like him at all anymore, but Scott Adams presented a model in one of his books that I found very useful in terms of describing how people (all of us, according to the model) decide how they're going to think.
His argument is that, in a "Plato and the cave"-type framing, everyone is going through the world using a "filter." The goal here, he says, is not to believe you can be the one to break out and achieve direct objective truth, but to find the best filter to labor under.
Quoth Adams, the best filters are those that A) have high predictive value and B) make you relatively happy. And that these two things need to be kept in relative balance for a filter to be viable in a long term, societal sense.
Like I said, I don't really like him or a lot of his ideas anymore. But I think about this one a lot.
Imagine Canada being governed by a former part-time High School drama teacher.
What can you expect from such a regime?
Clown Schwab used the opportunity to turn it into a Canadastan Kaganate.

This is their holy war. To lie, cheat and steal is righteous because in a revolutionary’s mind, then end justify the means. Until we all understand this, we will continue to think they are incompetent and give them a pass, “at some point it will become oblivious” as we still sit on our couch as our $2 beer becomes $20. What will it take to wake up and realize this is the end game of USA unless we all rise up and find a way to vote them all out at the same time? My fear is we will continue to bitch about it and have trust in a system that’s corrupt until the day they come and take your home away. But hey, I thought justice would prevail in the long run.
Are we past assuming their awfulness is simply incompetence?
I believe they midwit technocrats are generally referred to as "useful idiots" for the really malicious people like who rhyme with "Phony Slouchy".
