THE pandemic has brought out the best in some people and the worst in many more. To understand what is going on, we need to refer to history. When dictators empower supporters to persecute, oppress and blame a segment of the population, things rapidly go from bad to worse as the inflamed followers seek to outdo each other in extreme actions. Once the privileged group is allowed openly to hold outlandish opinions and act upon them without censure or restraint, things rapidly get out of hand. Traditional values of justice, morality, and kindness are readily abandoned.
In 1938 Hitler annexed Austria. The persecution unleashed on the Austrian Jews horrified the Jewish population of Germany even though they had suffered much as a result of increasingly restrictive legislation during the previous five years. The details are too horrifying to repeat here, but the principle is instructive. Hitler came to be revered as a God-like figure, in whose service extremes of behaviour could be freely ventured in his name.
An assistant professor at Yale University has suggested the only way to deal with Japan’s rapidly ageing population is a mass suicide by disembowelment. Yusuke Narita defended his views in a New York Times profile last week. His ideas resurrect the ‘useless eaters’ argument advanced by the Nazi state in support of enforced euthanasia. What is remarkable is the fact that he is employed at Yale. This gives an insight into the prevalence and acceptability of horrific views including mass murder.
The New York Post reports that a woman in Victoria, Australia, has been denied a heart transplant because she is unvaccinated. The woman has a valid exemption because vaccination may worsen her heart condition, but the attending physicians have decided that the procedure is too ‘sacred’ to allow an unvaccinated person to participate. I am sure you know that the opposite of sacred is ‘profane’. According to the dictionary: profane persons are not respectful of religious sentiments. So according to the Victoria Department of Health the unvaccinated are by definition irreligious.
Apparently Covid vaccination has been elevated to the status of a religion in the minds of some extremists. Adherents of this rather strange religion are granted great leeway to ignore counter arguments and factual evidence. Thus the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) received multiple alerts from concerned doctors and hospitals about elevated incidence of cardiac events following vaccination early in 2021. See here for a range of examples, but even after the alerting emails had been received, the vaccine safety work group for CDC’s advisory panel said there were ‘relatively few reports of myocarditis’ after vaccination and that ‘most cases appear to be mild’. This was a deliberate attempt to misdirect growing concern.
The CDC had eventually to admit there was a serious problem with myocarditis post Covid vaccination, but faced with reports of increased incidence of stroke following Covid vaccination, it has decided to embark on a similar denial. Joseph A Ladapo, Surgeon General of Florida, reports that the CDC has said that signals of stroke risk with mRNA vaccination shouldn’t be taken seriously because other countries haven’t ‘flagged this safety issue’. In fact they have, as Lapado explains here.
In Florida they are putting data before dogma. In the UK the NHS has now flagged that it may close the Covid vaccination for all ages and even for so called ‘at risk’ groups. Lapado summarises: ‘At this point in the pandemic, it’s likely that these mRNA Covid shots cause more harm than good in most Americans.’
You may not know all this but you need to. The mRNA Covid vaccines are killers. Follow Steve Kirsch with key points of evidence here. Increasingly governments are recognising this. You can bet your bottom dollar that our governments and oppositions know this (by now it is hard not to realise what is going on), but they are keeping quiet.
The sad truth is that in New Zealand Jacinda Ardern and her acolytes opened the floodgates on extreme views. The majority of the population believed them and now the government can’t do a U-turn without embarrassment and consequent relegation to the political wilderness. It can’t be very long before it all comes out, though.
It is hard to imagine why anyone would think it morally acceptable to keep quiet about the cause of unprecedented excess deaths in NZ. As new PM Chris Hipkins gravely shares his devastation and concern with us on TV about cyclone deaths, he is keeping mum about a tragedy on a scale which dwarfs Cyclone Gabrielle. He is allowed to do that because he is a member of a group of fanatical modernists who have come to treat medical misadventure and consequent death as the price of progress. We are talking about sacred ground here. Thou shalt not say vaccination is wrong, it is always right, no matter how ineffective, harmful or fatal.
The Labour party is not alone. Opposition leader Chris Luxon believes that mRNA vaccines can do no wrong and can’t give a straight answer to concerns raised at hustings. James Shaw, leader of the Greens, is all for modern technology including the biotechnology of vaccines. David Seymour, leader of the right-wing ACT, wishes that our population would make more use of the relaxed euthanasia laws.
None of these politicians has any more than a superficial knowledge about biotechnology, probably based on biased briefings handed to them as they rush off to meetings, but they hold strong views and expect you and me to follow their lead without question. There is a sense of unreality in Parliament as politicians go round swapping extreme views and egging each other on. Time to get out the history books and brush up on where and what all this can lead to.
