This little firecracker gives me hope for the future of humanity! Here is an article with a video of her badass speech if anyone missed it: https://summit.news/2021/11/11/video-8-year-old-girl-tells-school-board-they-should-all-go-to-jail-for-forcing-masks-on-kids/

“Just because I get suspended for not wearing a mask isn’t going to change my mind. You can keep suspending me, I still have the right not to wear a mask,” the young girl declared.

“It is not fair that I am getting punished because you guys, the school board are not following the law,” the second grader continued, adding “I’m still going to stand up for what I believe in.”

“I hope you all go to jail for doing this to me,” Fiona urged, adding that her family is proud of her and finishing with “your rules suck.”

in any sort of just world, they should have to rename the school after her.

an awful lot of people need to hear this:

"while you were busy black pill whining about how you cannot win, an 8 year old just took down a school board..."

any questions?

And hopefully more than a few kids, who have cowardly, compliant insipid parents, will be emboldened by Fiona's act of bravery.

Let's hope it is replicated worldwide and becomes the explosive movement needed.

Wasn't implying that those adjectives applied to Fiona parents, BTW.

Would be a nice change, to have her address the UN rather than some of the current crop of "thought" leaders.

I still can't convince my wife not to wear one. She just doesn't want the trouble so goes along with the gaslighting despite witnessing that I have no trouble at all with not wearing one.

I’m in the same boat but I refuse to comply. She now just mutters when I don’t comply when before she’d lose her mind. She’s finally coming around that maybe - just maybe - this was all a ruse. She’s not vaxxed and she refuses to get our children vaxxed as well so at least we agree on that. My feeling is she’s finally seeing the lies.

My wife has always thought that it was a 'ruse' but she just has a different strategy than I have. She hates masks.

Neurochemically and socially we women aren't as well-equipped for open dissent. Disagreeableness requires a high tolerance for emotional pain in most women. It's hard work. It's freaking worth it though. I've baby-stepped my way into it. When I am getting out of the car I say aloud to myself and whoever I'm with "I am not wearing a mask no matter what". Each time I did it at first, something positive happened that emboldened and fortified me. Now I am getting bolder and bolder. I'm talking to managers about how I will only spend money at businesses that do not mandate vaccines. Last week I bought a chalk marker and wrote in big letters on the back windshield of my car "COMPLIANCE WILL NOT SET US FREE" and "UNMASK YOUR HUMANITY". Several times I've gotten very enthusiastic support from honking wavers on the road, and nothing bad so far. I'm turning into a big weirdo, but this isn't about chem trails--it's about basic human rights, so I'm willing to be weird. Crazy when love of humanity motivates you to do things that most people deem "antisocial".

She absolutely deserves to be super flash internet famous. But don't forget her parents, her state legislature, and her courts. Not all kids are lucky enough to have these on their side.

This as I read some parents bragging that their 6 year olds “bravely took the jab to help the world flatten the curve”. Parents that jab kids should have their kids taken away

Expand full comment

One of my oldest, dearest friends visited yesterday, and I learned she has already gotten her five-year-old jabbed 😢 She is a loving mother and thought she was doing the right thing for her son and her family.

Needless to say, we had an intense conversation, and she was open to listening to the concerns I expressed, the data/peer-reviewed science I shared, and the examples of vaxx deaths/injuries I described. After about an hour, she asked if we could change the subject as it was making her uncomfortable. It was a very loving, raw conversation, though, and I got her to agree to watch Ron Johnson’s recent panel on the vaxx-injured as well as several other videos. This experience inspired the next letter in my series, so I will be posting that as soon as I can finish it.

Thanks so much for sharing! ThAT was awesome!!

You can learn a lot from an eight year old.

Expand full comment

You can from this 8 year old. There was a story of a child who refused to take her mask off for a school portrait and her mother was "so proud". (All the kids were photographed individually.)

Expand full comment

We are avid cyclists, and have followed all the events in Europe this summer/fall. Mosts of the races are very hard and treacherous, and getting to stand on the podium is downright spectacular. Quite the extraordinary feat. But the damn people running the race made the winners keep their masks on while photos were taken. Outrageous. By October some guys didn’t care anymore, and lowered the mask for the photo op. FUCH the rule makers.

Van der Poel started the Trend at the TdF and more and more guys followed him to the point where Pogacar wasn't hardly wearing his. In CX season no one is wearing them.

People wonder why I'm such a stick in the mud causing probelms about masks/mandates and messing with people and the system? My answer is "What else can I do? Can't go to the mall, gym, theatre, movies, sports. Idle hands are the devil's workshop and all that. "

The video was awesome! I loved how she had to read her talk by running her finger along the page and how she emphasized that she wrote her speech at her last appearance. I agree with TexBat about the parents taking her out of government schools, but she's certainly having an outsized impact where she is!

The 8-year-olds have more at stake than their parents do. They're the ones being forced to wear masks, and looking forward to a long dystopian future if things don't change.

I <3 that kid. Makes me smile every time that story crosses my newsfeed.

Expand full comment

Yep. And don't think for a minute that tiny kids don't see and assess courage, fear and compliance. These are very, very ancient and basic animal sensory cues and still exist amongst humans.

Aren't they? Don't they?

They see and absorb into themselves truths we may feel uncomfortable revealing to ourselves.

A lot of conversations I have with people is absolute belief in what they are being told, as well as, those who cannot understand why they would do this to us. Perhaps they moved the timeline up on the below question in the next scenario spars:

"Despite the uncertain science about the link between Coravax and the reported neurological symptoms, why should health officials still communicate with compassion and genuine sympathy toward those in the vaccinated population who experience medical issues subsequent to being vaccinated?"

We cannot wait for this next scenario to play out. It will be to late!

We should parody the utterly shitty images of Thunberg and Che Guevara on the left with a stylized portrait of this firebrand.

Expand full comment

Guevara was a revolutionary, killed by the CIA at the end of the day so he was definitely a threat to the establishment. Whether he would have been good for Bolivia or whereever he ended up is not known, but probably unlikely. But was Batista better than Castro? Trump started warp speed didn't he? Is Bolsanaro better than Biden?

Thunberg is an upper middle class Swede gaslighting the world but occasionally she may be right.

I've seen some give Putin a high five around the place because he's not Biden or Merkel or Ardern. But I can confirm that I've never met a Russian supporter of Putin and I've spent quite some time in Russia over the years.

Expand full comment

Guevara was a homophobic misogynist piece of shit that executed children. Fuck him.

Thunberg is a mentally ill child being puppeted by Scandinavian elites.

I don't give a crap about Putin. Putin isn't trying to ruin my life.

He's mandating vaccines. No different than any of the above.

As for Guevara what are your sources?

Just what does ungovernable mean for adults who have a strong propensity to go along to get along? (If my veterinarian’s office asks me to wear a mask when he looks at my animal I will. There are battles to pick. The mask isn’t one for me.)

For you? It means nothing.

Hopefully enough people who don't "go along to get along" will win your freedoms back for you. It'll be a close one.

Expand full comment

Agree 100%. People who aren’t willing to be even a tad uncomfortable are the reason we find ourselves here.

Expand full comment

It depends on how far you want to push it and where. For me, I would find a vet that didn’t push masks. I also choose to spend money at places that align with my beliefs. It’s not easy. I make it a game though. I refuse to buy gas in my state because of the insane gasoline taxes, so I drive to another state for gas. Also in my city there is a 7 cent tax for plastic bags even at the grocery store. I drive out of The city for groceries or I just refuse to pay the seven cents. There is ALWAYS a work-around. Always.

You comply at all then they win. And they will keep punishing us anyway. That's how it works, when it's not about health or a virus but something else entirely.

I am not sure that’s true. Maybe.

It's 100% true. You've just seen it play out for 2 years. "Two weeks to stop the spread."

Expand full comment

If the mask worked for respiratory viruses... But they really don't. The mask has been one of the catalysts world wide to urge compliance. BUT, I don't care if someone wants to wear one *voluntarily*. It should not be a litmus test to enter a business and there should not be mask police like poor Australia. It is a symbol of the slow creep of control and fear. I won't and don't participate and that is my choice. I don't go along to get along. That's part of the problem. But, again, if someone is scared and wants to wear one, more power to them. Even if it truly doesn't make any sense (and this from a mask wearer for work for the *right* reasons for 30 years)

I like it. However, I'm conflicted with agitating, i.e. not wearing mask, at places like the grocery store. There's a lot of employees there who just need to make a buck and the last thing they deserve is me creating stress. What's the best way to resist w/o bumming out average joe/jane?

Expand full comment

They will likely offer you a mask. You can politely say, "thanks but I don't need one". Then walk away. Are they really going to chase you through the store? Consider that your act of non-compliance gives 2 other people courage to do the same.

I should add that you might consider trying this when you aren't in a hurry and when you can afford the time to go shop elsewhere afterwards because the store might not be willing to take your money.

Expand full comment

Yeah, I don't jump ugly with the poor unfortunate soul who's job requires them to tell me to put my mask on. I'll engage with them about the uselessness, and likely harm, of masks, that the science doesn't support masks, then I'll tell them the science doesn't support the 6-foot social distancing bullcrap, so they'll hear something they don't usually hear. But unless it's the owner of the store - and it never is - I won't argue per se with an hourly employee.
