Our Botched COVID Response Needs a Full ResetIoannes Duval
Arguing the case for nationalism is a thankless endeavor. The powers-that-be provide instant gratification, while the negative externalities take years or decades to materialize. “Free trade” and “open borders” are the dogmata of our times; international capitalism and Left-liberalism are the two faces of the same globalist beast. Last year, it was threatened like never before.
That’s why it shrieked when disturbing news trickled in from China and northern Italy in early 2020, the latter having long debased itself as a production base and semi-Disneyland for Chinese tourists and investors. Scores of dead bodies and overflowing morgues sowed fears of a new plague. China cracked down: They locked down entire cities in order to squash the disease and protect the country’s health. The West had a different concern: Its main fear was that the globalist narrative might crumble.
Just before Covid took its inexorable hold on the West, Right-wing parties were lambasted for demanding a cautionary approach. “Fact-checkers” in Europe downplayed the risk; in the United States, the Anti-Defamation League scribbled a blog post entitled “Extremists Use Coronavirus to Advance Racist, Conspiratorial Agendas.” Our governments had to be dragged into action, kicking and screaming. Well into March 2020, international travel at US airports was allowed without any discernible Covid safety measures. But alas, a few weeks later, the only thing you could hear in New York were ambulances racing through the dead night.
Within weeks, people were united by fear. Little was known about the foreign virus except that it killed off the elderly — our own grandparents — at a fearsome rate. And with more than a few healthy and young victims, everyone else was at risk, too. Open borders and a free flow of goods had brought a deadly bug into our countries’ hearts. For the first time ever, citizens wished our borders had been closed earlier — with ruthless efficiency.
The threat was real, and it still is: With a lethality of about 1%, and a shocking 10% for the elderly, Covid is far more deadly than the flu. It hasn’t mutated away. It reinfects the recovered. The long-term effects are scary; beyond a far higher risk of vascular disease, Long Covid often means severely reduced physical ability, permanent fatigue, and a loss of smell and taste. Perhaps it is a bioweapon that emerged from China accidentally. No one in a clear state of mind should want it in his body.
Yet many Western leaders were fine with letting the globalist virus ravage their countries. The lockdowns and border closures, which went against every fiber of their bodies, were inadequate. China, in the meantime, protected its people. While Western politicians harp on about China disrespecting life, the focused action in the Far East saved countless lives — and, coincidentally, the Chinese people’s freedom to move about.
A potential tidal change
Eradication of the virus is possible, and it should have been done. Boris Johnson’s former advisor Dominic Cummings — think of him what you will — recently observed:
Trump could have taken another branching history in February 2020 and stomped on covid — closed the borders (with the Democrats screaming ‘racist’), forced strict lockdowns, controlled the virus, and fired/appointed people to do vaccines at war-speed (with the Democrats screaming ‘fascist’). If he had he would have won.
The authoritarian measures the West should have used include mass testing, forced quarantines, advanced mobile phone applications, fully closed borders, halting any and all immigration and asylum procedures, strict monitoring of misbehaving communities, and deportations of illegals presenting a risk. These measures are part of every advanced country’s toolbox, and they should have been deployed to eradicate the plague that globalism brought upon us. True leaders would have had their countries behind them, and they could have saved countless lives. A paradigmatic shift — the explicit end of open borders and free trade, and not just for the duration of this pandemic — would have destroyed the globalist world order irrevocably.
To this day, every new strain of the deadly bug is another indictment of globalism. No wonder we are supposed to talk about the “Delta” or the “Omicron” variant, and not of the Indian or South African variant. There have been new strains of the virus from every godforsaken corner of the planet. Why do they all eventually surface here? They certainly don’t take hold in China or South Korea.
With the failure of our incompetent leaders, it was up to (with apologies) science and business to create a highly effective remedy: The vaccines. They were developed at record speed, and they work well. In fact, they work so well that everyone in his right mind should not hesitate for a second to get vaccinated. (Do it now, and please tell your friends and family to do the same.)
While the US government at least got the vaccination rollout right, the EU couldn’t even figure this task out. The sad bureaucracy ordered its member states to abandon their procurement strategies and hand it all over to Brussels, which then proceeded to waste valuable months haggling with corporations. Tens of thousands of lives were sacrificed on the EU’s altar, while countries like Israel were smart enough to snatch up the available future supplies. And believe it or not, it’s happening again right now: Just as citizens were waiting for months to get their first shot, they now can’t get booster shots when they want them, leaving them vulnerable to new, freshly-imported mutations of the virus. These failures have brought general discontent with the EU to peak level.
A freak show as a response
Let’s restate the situation: Globalism has brought us a deadly bug, globalist institutions have been incapable of protecting us from it, and citizen discontent is at a heretofore unknown level. With a correctly-framed narrative, the public might well be ready for a paradigmatic shift of epochal scale. For the Right, Covid amounts to a singular opportunity. We could push hard for border protection, all in the name of saving lives. The talking points write themselves.
Yet we have chosen to ignore this opportunity. Instead, we are treating the public to a freak show of esotericism, libertarianism, and denial. We are telling them they have nothing to worry about. We are advising them not to protect themselves with masks, which we call “muzzles.” We wax eloquently about “individual rights” — as if a nation shouldn’t rather concern itself with its health and survival as an entity.
While we refuse to capitalize on the chaotic procurement strategy for vaccines, we profess to worry about “the economy” — as if it were our responsibility to save a flawed globalist system from the results of its actions. As if Covid would not provide the case for a comprehensive reset that must substitute “free trade” with regional and national economies.
We celebrate Sweden’s despicable far-Left government, whose strategy accelerated the Great Replacement, as if “genocide” weren’t an apt description for sitting back as the virus suffocated their elderly, while the (predominantly young) migrant communities were far less affected.
And we are peddling risible conspiracy theories — as if Putin, Trump, and every family doctor were involved in a global conspiracy to inject us with killer substances. As if the state of Israel were conducting a holocaust against its own people. As if mysticism and esotericism deserved any respect in a discussion about public health. As if there was anything heroic in exposing your body — young or old, average or beautiful — to a threat that can, thanks to science, be somewhat contained.
While some on our side have performed the act, Covid is most certainly not the hill to die on, especially not when the objective is to play down a pandemic that has amounted to a cathartic experience for many families and communities — a pandemic that, coincidentally, validates our long-standing and fundamental critique of liberalism, globalism, and open borders.
The blame is shifting
As the absolute icing on the cake, many Right-wing characters continue to give out the borderline idiotic and immoral advice not to get vaccinated. That puts those who listen at considerable, sometimes grave physical risk — and it will increasingly turn them into pariahs and confine them to their homes.
One thing is clear: Even though many on the Right are in denial, the majority of citizens know and believe that Covid is a real threat, and they are quickly losing patience with anyone they see as a potential vector for the pandemic and breeding ground for new mutations. The blame for the bug that we should have assigned to globalism and its potential carriers from abroad is being shifted — onto us.
It is late, but not too late, to dismiss the lunacy. The globalist beast slipped, but it has figured out how to use the pandemic to advance its agenda. Why haven’t we?

This missive makes so many errors that it’s hard to know where to begin critiquing it. Bill Gates, Anthony Fauci, and Klaus Schwab would love it. First and foremost, the author buys into all of the worst alarmist claims that have been made about the virus and the worst forms of cheerleading for the vaccines (of which much data shows how dangerous they are). But beyond that, there are many other errors in reasoning.
“To this day, every new strain of the deadly bug is another indictment of globalism.” — Does Iohannis seriously think there were no pandemics before globalism? There have been pandemics going back at least as far as the Peloponnesian War, and I seriously doubt anyone would describe ancient Greece as a “globalist” society, unless the author is seriously suggesting that all trans-national travel be halted altogether, something which has never happened before in history.
“While we refuse to capitalize on the chaotic procurement strategy for vaccines, we profess to worry about “the economy” — as if it were our responsibility to save a flawed globalist system from the results of its actions.” — The economy isn’t only about super-rich people on Wall Street. The actual meaning of the economy is the total sum of the transactions governing life on the material level, including everyday things like buying food or the family-owned shop being able to transact business in order to survive. The economic cost that has been inflicted on ordinary people has far exceeded any health benefit that was derived from the lockdowns (which is highly dubious in itself) and will lead to more detrimental effects on societies than the pandemic itself. A few years before the pandemic started the UK established a new policy on what it would do if there was a pandemic. Lockdowns were part of it, but it stated that such measures should only be enacted if the pandemic would inflict more than 900,000 deaths on the UK, since anything less than that would be more detrimental to the rest of society than it was worth. These plans were thrown out in 2020, however, and the new ridiculous policies enacted in their place, all because of modern man’s excessive fear of his own mortality, which is what allowed them to come into being in the first place. As for the wealthy globalists themselves, the pandemic has worked out quite well for them. If you look at the pandemic profits of companies like Amazon, Netflix, and Microsoft, they’ve made billions, mainly because of the lockdowns. So opposing lockdowns can hardly be described as a pro-globalist stance.
“We wax eloquently about “individual rights” — as if a nation shouldn’t rather concern itself with its health and survival as an entity.” — This is an exact reversal of how we ought to be looking at the response to the pandemic. The duty of a nation is not to allow for the survival of all of its individual citizens at all costs, but to do what is best for its people as a whole. The question is therefore why we should ask the entire population to make enormous sacrifices for the benefit of a very small number of at-risk people, all of whom could have been protected through more targeted measures that would have shielded them rather than forcing entire nations to shut down and all the harm that has ensued from that — and which we haven’t seen the end of yet. “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country,” after all. It is those who are obsessed with the idea that we should have “zero Covid” and zero deaths who are the true individualists; those of us who oppose these measures believe that the good of the entire community should come first over the impossible goal of there being no suffering as a result of Covid. Things are already bad as a result of these ridiculous measures and we’re nowhere near hitting bottom yet.
I know of many people who have died or suffered severe consequences from the Covid, but I have not known or even heard anecdotally of any significant negative effect of any of the vaccines. It can be a severe illness even if you don’t die or lose a limb. As to efficacy of the vaccines, who can know for certain, but people around seem to think deaths and respirators are almost always unvaccinated.
Then you must not have been following the news about the vaccines very closely. There is ample data showing that they are far more dangerous than ordinary vaccines, and also that they are not nearly as efficacious as it was initially claimed they would be. The fact that we are still seeing lockdowns and that they keep calling for more and more “booster shots” shows this. Besides which, I know people who have had serious problems after getting the vaccines, including one friend who was unable to walk for two days after he received it (and his case is not the only such one). This is besides the fact that several medical researchers have claimed that it is the vaccines that are actually leading to the creation of new variants.
But quite honestly, if people want to get the vaccine, that’s their business as far as I’m concerned; my only problem when it comes to them is when governments and their supporters start pressuring or forcing people to get it.
Agree, vaccine mandates are probably absurd. There is a feed forward irrationality on both sides, seems to me. Also, I wouldn’t underestimate the possibility of psychosomatic reactions if I were you. 😉
That’s nonsense. There are many very real case studies showing extremely detrimental side-effects of the vaccines, and they’re most certainly not “psychosomatic.” Making excuses for these people is how we’ve ended up in this ridiculous situation to begin with.
When I say severe, I mean like losing limbs. A few I know have had flu like symptoms for one or two days after the vaccine.
There have been many people who have had significant problems from the vaccines, more so than with the others that are currently in use, and more than just feeling flu-like symptoms for a day or two. If you don’t want to take my word for it, check the government’s VAERS database, where all these things are reported: https://vaers.hhs.gov/data.html
Or watch Tucker Carlson’s many videos on this topic. Or many of the other videos and articles that have been produced on it.
Chiming in to say I know two people who got infections from their jabs which in each case turned into life-threatening encephalitis. My spouse got a horrible allergic reacting from the jab which left her with discolorations all over her body which resembled severe bruising – she looked as though she’d been savage. Not to mention all the reports of healthy young men dying of blood clots. These are not “psychosomatic.”
The VAERS (vaccine adverse event reporting system) database is interesting but questionable. They are not vetting or fact-checking the information getting dumped into it.
In Systems analysis this is a data problem called GIGO.
There is a similar problem with the collection of Holocaust atrocity stories, but I digress.
Then you must not have been following the news about the vaccines very closely.
The news, by which I guess you mean mainstream media, doesn’t publish anything negative about the precious lifesaving inoculation. I just wanted to clarify that for readers who don’t know what to think about all this. The media promote the killshot day & night with no hesitation. For the truth, you have to know where to look on the interwebz.
No, of course I didn’t mean the mainstream media. Although Tucker Carlson has done a good job of reporting on some aspects of the crisis.
This is an outrageous piece of globalist scare propaganda on a March 2020 level, packed with debunked lies and misinformation. The mass vaccinations have no medical justification whatsoever and are clearly a tool to usher an unprecedented totalitarian system in the West (and elsewhere). The “pandemic”, which is largely a media creation, is the most vicious tool of globalism we have ever seen.
Indeed it’s hard to fathom where to begin to pick apart this piece. Just one detail: The actual average infection-fatality rate of Covid according to the authoritative study by John Ioannidis is in fact 0,15%, and it is heavily stratified by age groups – the latter a very important fact unmentioned by this author.
That’s what I was thinking as I read this, it sounds like something written in March 2020, when perhaps it was slightly more forgivable.
I think we have a couple of decades left in us before we have to resort to The Dissident Case for Bending the Knee to Globohomo.
“It is late, but not too late, to dismiss the lunacy. The globalist beast slipped, but it has figured out how to use the pandemic to advance its agenda. Why haven’t we?”
Yeah, for example by doing exactly what the globalist beast wants us to do and shilling for all its insane “protective measures” that haven’t worked in controlling the virus but quite efficiently in controlling people. Why haven’t we, fellow nationalists?
This whole PLANdemic and the plot to get humanity vaccinated with a killer vaccine (actually not a real vaccine, but a gene “therapy” that destroys the immune system and causes clots in the bloodstream to kill people instantly with a heart attack) is in itself a conspiracy of the Global Elite. To urge us all to get vaccinated as a kind of “fighting globalism” is beyond chutzpah. Nice try. Who is Ioannes Duval? Is he working for Fauci?
This is a ridiculous article that almost seems like the product of a globalist algorithm for spreading [fake] anti-globalist propaganda.
I strongly disagree with the premise of this piece. Most people in america have had ‘covid-19’ because most people have the flu in a given year. There’s always respiratory illness and death. Stop perpetuating this hoax.
Please, turn off your television set. First of all, the vaccines were rushed to production without adequate testing and are remarkably unsafe. You don’t have to take my word for it; check out the VAERS database. We have no idea what this stuff will do long term, but we’ll find out soon enough.
Second, despite what you said, the vaccines don’t prevent people from catching or spreading the coof. Not even the manufacturers claim that they do, but the politicians and talking heads still spread this misinformation. The Carnival cruise line has a vax mandate; if you don’t like getting injected with experimental pharmaceuticals, tough shit, no cruise for you. Then they had an outbreak anyway:
Carnival Vista reports 27 COVID-19 cases aboard cruise from Texas to Belize (nypost.com)
The same thing just happened at Cornell University. Complete vax mandate, if you don’t take it, no education for you. And then they just had an outbreak.
Finally, the globalists aren’t upset about all this; they’re rubbing their greasy palms together about it. This is starting to look like Bond villain stuff. Take a look at who authorized the funding for the “gain of function” research in the Wuhan lab. Turns out that it’s the same guy who is the USA’s number one Covid Drum Major. If that wasn’t enough, a bunch of top globalists did this Event 201 “tabletop exercise” in 2019 about what if a novel coronavirus starts a new plague. Six weeks later, guess what happens… (Did they think it wouldn’t be obvious?) After that, the globalists and their politicians start promoting a bunch of measures which will give them even more power and control, which they call the “Great Reset”. How convenient.
No, the vaccine is not supposed to prevent you from catching the virus. It’s more akin to the flu vaccine, which merely lessens and lightens the symptoms you would have had. It’s not going to eradicate Covid or prevent you from getting it. Coronavirus, influenza, and cold virus are RNA viruses, which mutate rapidly because of the relative thermodynamic instability of rna compared to dna. That’s why there has never been a vaccine against the common cold or why flu will never be eradicated. Those viruses, like smallpox, which have been virtually eradicated, are all dna viruses, which are much bigger and don’t change much season to season. But it seems that if the vaccine lessens the duration of the illness, it should shorten the period one is infectious for, slowing the momentum of its spread, doesn’t it? I’m not sure anyone really knows.
Covid is fast-mutating, respiratory virus with an animal reserve. It is not amenable to being eradicated or controlled by mass vaccination across all age groups. Luckily, most people (especially under 30) are able to resist the virus through cross-reactive immunity, which self-updates through exposure to successive wild strains.
In addition to side effects like blood clots and circulatory issues, the vaccines suppress the normal functioning of the immune system, opening the door to all kinds of complications. You should have more faith in your own body than the dodgy vaccines brought to you by Pfizer.
There’s a lot going on here.
With a lethality of about 1%, and a shocking 10% for the elderly, Covid is far more deadly than the flu. I hate to be the nerd who asks for a citation, but what is the source for this? Is it biased? Is it manipulating data by ignoring co morbidities? Also while this sounds harsh, how many old people have already artificially extended their lives by taking a dozen pills? What business do they have in demanding that the rest of society destroy itself so they can prolong their lives by a few more extra unnatural years? And I do not consider dysgenic fatties dying off to be a loss. They never cared about their heath, why should we? Most fatties are anti white libtards anyways.
It reinfects the recovered. The long-term effects are scary; Yeah it reinfects people, just like the flu. Also at our Stop the Steal rallies here in America, nobody wore a cuck muzzle. We had a lot of boomers too. Meanwhile, libtards were gleefully predicting that we would all be dead or in agony. Guess what? Nobody died. Nobody is crippled. I know several people who got or probably got it and they all thought it was unusual but also very underwhelming. Fauci even admitted that masks don’t work.
As if the state of Israel were conducting a holocaust against its own people. Jews are very neurotic. Their entire race suffers from hypochondria. This sentence assumes that Jews think logically like white men. They don’t. Israel also has a high covid rate now. And while yes, Sweden is an anti white government, a broken clock is still right twice a day. Britain, Australia and Occupied Germany hate their own people, and have been using covid as an excuse to tyrannize their own people even more. Also, big pharma is infested with Jews, most notably the Sacklers who run Pfizer.
That puts those who listen at considerable, sometimes grave physical risk — and it will increasingly turn them into pariahs and confine them to their homes. In the long term, you will be confined to your home for complying and thus encouraging more tyranny. You are also more at risk of a vaccine side effect based on the facts we have now. And like with asbestos, we may not know all the long term effects until latter.
The majority of citizens know and believe that Covid is a real threat. Outside of the city dwelling laptop liberals, people are generally done with it. Our patience has it limits!
The vaccines. They were developed at record speed, and they work well. I find that speed to be suspicious. They also don’t work well, otherwise there would be no booster shot needed. Interestingly, China’s two vaccines are traditional vaccines, not experimental mRNA technology. I still wouldn’t get even a traditional vaccine for something so trivial though.
Why do they all eventually surface here? They certainly don’t take hold in China or South Korea. If there wasn’t a manufactured media freak out, nobody would know or care.
And we are peddling risible conspiracy theories IMO a lot of the nutty schizo conspiracy theories are government psyops created to smear respectable vaccine hesitancy, much as Q Anon was probably a CIA psyop to smear MAGA. Such theories are almost only held by boomers as a cope for avoiding the tough questions, and for their cheap entertainment value.
“Most fatties are anti white libtards anyways.”
1. The most obese states in the nation are all red states like Mississippi.
2. Liberals are obsessed with public health policies like anti-smoking, eating organic food from Whole Foods, banning Pepsi and putting warnings on candy, women fitness gyms, etc.
3. Have you ever seen the levels of obesity at a normie MAGA event? When conservatives were trying to prove that Patriot Front were not true conservatives, one of the things they kept mentioning was that the participants were too fit.
2. Liberals are obsessed with public health policies like anti-smoking, eating organic food from Whole Foods, banning Pepsi and putting warnings on candy, women fitness gyms, etc.
And yet they fully embrace highly unnatural injectables products!! However, I tip my cap to the few good liberals left, such as the Alliance for Natural Health and RFK Jr’s CHD.
If this ordeal ever comes to an end, I expect that much of modern medicine will be discredited, the entire paradigm of pharmaceutical intervention, the trillions-of-dollars “healthcare” money-sink, and that people will learn to live in greater accord with nature, both in their politics and the treatment & care of their bodies. At this point, I would only trust a doctor with mending a broken bone.
Mississippi is filled with black people who are the most grossly obese group in the USA. Don’t you have eyes? Mississippi is only a red state because whites there actually vote as a tribe as they know the blacks will ruin things if they do not present a United voting front.
Yeah, these kids start Kindergarten obese.
It’s not killed half as many people as I’d have liked. Not the disease I was hoping for.
Is it now a crime to get sick? People everywhere have been getting mild, medium or deadly cases of respiratory infections for a long time. Doesn’t matter whether you give it a fancy name like Covid 19 or bird flu or swine flu or any other kind supposedly “caused” by a socalled virus. If you are halfways healthy, you survive it. If you don’t survive it, that’s because you were a basket case all along. Why do you think vultures circle around seriously sick and weak animals. Well, it’s the same with us humans.
The idea that simply sticking your arm out for a shot of chemicals can somehow “save” you (for what – life in a global totalitarian world with 7 billion other androids?) has to be the most pathetic lie ever to come down the pike.
The author reports a 1% mortality rate, which is out by almost an order of magnitude according to a couple of global meta-studies carried out six months apart by Dr John Ioannidis of the WHO, the first reporting a 0.23% mortality for all ages (orders of magnitude lower as you descend through the various age cohorts from old to young) and the second showing it all the way down at 0.15%, i.e. within the envelope of flu, which is about 0.1%.
Also, you only have to extrapolate out from a small stratum of some of the healthiest people on earth – professional athletes – and observe the inordinate post-jab deaths occurring within this group to understand how risky these jabs are. Let’s take FIFA registered football (soccer) players, for example:
Deaths per year of registered FIFA players due to SCD/SUD (Sudden Cardiac Death/Sudden Unexpected Death) for the 20 years from 2001 to 2020 were as follows:
Mean no. of deaths per year = 4.2
Standard deviation = 2.50 years (correct to 2 decimal places).
The number of SUD/SCD-related deaths of FIFA players for 2021 is 21 and the year isn’t even over yet!
This number is approximately 6.7 standard deviations above the mean, i.e. (21-4.2)/2.5 ~ 6.7 standard deviations.
Assuming a normal distribution for deaths per year, a 6.7-sigma event has a roughly 100 billion-to-one chance of occurring. My calculator didn’t even have enough decimal places to display the probability of 21 deaths or more in 2021 as anything other than zero!
If you still think this is about public health rather than globalist elites trying to consolidate more wealth and power at any cost, then you’re living in cloud cuckoo land.
I don’t think it is ignorance or even gullibility. I think it is conscious misleading, whether on order of Fauci, Klaus Schwab or Cass Sunstein (“cognitive infiltration”), we don’t know. The Global Elite is clearly underestimating our intelligence.
I have to say I’m shocked there were any deaths from cardiac causes in this group. There has to be an external factor like drugs or fat emboli.
Who, other than the most radicalised of conspiracy theorists, could possibly question the efficacy of a vaccine so reliable and durable that that you have to take a booster shot every three months to offset against the waning efficacy of the injection you received three months prior? Who other than some eccentric kook would question signing up to a lifelong, four-times-a-year, booster subscription model which ensures their civil liberties are forevermore contingent on consuming a medical product from a private company who are indemnified against liability for adverse health consequences and who have such little faith in their own product that they would not have otherwise coerced you into taking their medicine but for said indemnity.
Yes, the natural immunity conferred by catching the virus itself may well give you far superior, long term and robust immunity without the need for any big pharma interventions, but risking natural infection is clearly a bad bet since covid’s recovery rate is only 99.99% for most people, i.e. same as flu, and in the case of the latest variants, probably the same as a regular cold.
Don’t you know that the vaccine, although offering no protection against catching covid, has been found to reduce hospitalisation rates? Don’t you want to benefit for a few months from being a part of a club whose recovery rate is 99.991% instead of 99.99%? Reducing your mortality risk from 0.01% to 0.009% may only represent a risk reduction in absolute terms of 0.001%, but you should think of it in relative terms. 0.009% is 10% less than 0.01%! Have you got that? 10% less!!! Don’t you want to make your tiny risk of death from covid 10% tinier… if only for a few months? If so, roll up, roll up (your sleeves) and join the booster carousel.
Okay, enough with the sarcasm, already. This isn’t exactly the “trolley problem” of moral dilemmas, is it? Firstly, there is no positive collective utility to taking these vaccines since they offer no sterilising immunity (in fact, the pro-vaxxers will have dodged a bullet if they don’t simply offer another form of sterilisation). Therefore, the argument for taking these novel gene therapies for the greater good (i.e. not being a free rider), even though the cost-benefit for you as an individual might be negative, falls flat since they do nothing to reduce your chance of contracting or transmitting the virus.
All that leaves us with is “individual utility” and the alleged “effective immunity” of these jabs. The individual utility of any medical intervention or course of treatment is positive if and only if the treatment can be shown to score three out of three on the following criteria:
That is to say: do the jabs work, are they safe and do you need them?
A doctor should not prescribe for his patient any medicine scoring less than three out of three on the above. If he does, his patient should feel confident enough to overrule his doctor, safe in the knowledge he is dealing with a conformist midwit at best, or an unscrupulous stooge of a corrupt and nefarious establishment at worst.
Let’s deal with each of the three aforementioned criteria, one by one:
Firstly, if you need boosters every three months, the “vaccines” are hardly efficacious. That’s number one sorted. Need I say more? I could say much more, but I don’t think I’ll bother.
Secondly, if the VAERS and yellow card systems in the US and UK respectively are already brimming over with adverse side effects, injuries and deaths, and FIFA registered player deaths alone for 2021 sits at an unprecedented 21 (6.7 standard deviations above the mean of 4.2 deaths per year for the 20 years before), then these experimental jabs, which have been rushed out in record time and with limited trial data, can hardly be classed as safe. Also, the latest official public health data out of Scotland (published 16 December at the Daily Expose) shows that in the last four months, nine out of every ten covid deaths have occurred in the fully vaccinated.
Finally, we have the need. Who the hell other than the elderly and most comorbid needs a jab to protect themselves from a virus which, for the vast majority of people, possesses flu-like symptoms and a flu-like recovery rate?
So these “vaccines” score 0 out of 3. But even if they scored 2 out of 3 in terms of efficacy and safety, I’m still not taking the damn things cos the need isn’t there any more than the need is there for me to take a flu jab every year. I don’t need protecting from a virus with a flu-like 99.99% recovery rate for most people.
The fact people have been brainwashed into fearing such a nothing-burger speaks not only to the monopolistic control the mass media exerts over the minds of the masses, but also to the utter emasculation, feminisation and nannyfication of the west. The events of these past twenty-one months are proof positive that the powers that be, aided by their propagandists in the controlled mass media, have a profiteering and control agenda playing out here, not a public health agenda. Public health is just a pretext to enact the wealth- and power-grab we’ve watched play out throughout 2020 and 2021.
Every tyrant needs an alibi, after all.
A is for Articulate. Very well done, Vigilante Jesus.
Dr. ExCathedra and Vigilante Jesus,
Agreed. Well said, well written.
I have to say this was one of the most bizarre essays I’ve read on CC. But the comments in response to it are great.
How could you have read it if not an Insider? A spouse or friend is an insider?
I managed to read the article before it was switched to Paywall status. That’s a first though, so I don’t know if it was a tactical choice on Commander Johnson’s part to limit its readership by placing it behind the paywall. I should really seek insider status because CC is doing great work. I recommend the website far and wide, but still feel like a bit of a free rider for not throwing more shekels in.
Vigilante Jesus (below) –
Me, too. I would love to get behind the paywall, and it would certainly be very worth it to me, as CC has become a regular (and even important) part of my life. It’s a real lifeline to sanity. [I used to feel that way about AR, and before that Instauration.] But I’m paranoid for a host of reasons.
I live in one of the hyper-‘blue’ cities, in a neighborhood that has gotten very diverse over the decades. I work in a replaceable (ie, non-STEM) job for an increasingly progressive company (in fact, total sellout! we have several BLACK LIVES MATTER flyers posted at select spots in our building). As a sartorially conservative, 60 year old normal, masculine white man (not even queer! and not a single ‘tat’ or piercing!), my very appearance screams “Republican” if not “Trumpist”, and my colleagues already pretty much know I’m not progressive (of course, they have no idea of where I really stand, nor of the depth of my contempt for their [anti-]”values”). I need to hold on to this job for just 5 or 6 more years … etc. Although I’m by far the smartest person in my department, and probably, from what I can tell, the entire company (a couple of technical guys I’m friends with, one in finance, the other IT, are very sharp, but not in the intellectual way of CC or the liberal arts generally), I think top management would not shed too many tears if I left or got canceled.
So while I trust Greg’s honor in terms of maintaining maximum confidentiality, I am too fearful of being doxxed in my current position to want to pay up for the insider privilege. CC is under constant cyberattack, and you just never know. I could maybe maintain maximum anonymity using some kind of Bitcoin payment, but I don’t know anything about it, nor do I have time or desire right now to figure it out.
But someday, after I’ve retired to a red state, you better believe I will get behind that paywall. In the meantime, one way to not feel like a freeloader is to at least offer up the best comments you can. Authors appreciate that their work is being taken seriously, and comments of value enliven the site for everyone.
We should give Vigilante Jesus honorary Insider status based on comment #13 alone.
I agree. In fact, I’ll be the first to offer twenty federal reserve notes to secure Jesus’ green badge.
You are missing the main point, which is that Covid is a threat (perceived or real) that would have allowed us to aggressively push for closed borders and a very different world order. Not a single alien should have entered the West since February 2020, and thanks to Covid, finally even the bleeding-hearts would have agreed. We could have pushed the establishment on each and every one of their failures. But while our incompetent rulers screwed up and failed to protect, we told the people “don’t worry, Covid is a hoax” (worked out great in the retirement homes, right?). Instead of fanning the flames, we were the key apologists for those losers. I suppose we should thank the migrants and globalists for exposing us so swiftly and efficiently to the bug that renders our own “fat and old” people obsolete?
This is one of the worst articles I’ve read on Counter Currents. Stating that nationalists could have used fears of a pandemic, itself pushed by globalists, to push for closed borders is accepting the premise that a lockdown is the correct response to a pandemic. It is using the enemy’s weapon to fight the enemy, when effective nationalism must spring from the kind of freedom and autonomy still exercised by those opposed to this plandemic.
I disagree. White Identity Nationalism is about what makes White people happy and willing to breed like rabbits. Or at least invent like Edisons and Teslas. It has nothing to do with ‘freedom’ or ‘autonomy’, neither of which are meaningful outside tribal customs that give those abstract ideas concrete contours. ‘Nationalism’ is a collective endeavor that will never be realized via individualist values like ‘freedom’ and ‘autonomy’.
I think your missing the point of his criticism of the article by focusing in on the individualism vs nationalism part.
He’s saying that the author is trying to trick holdouts like us into thinking we can fight the globalists by walking willingly into the their trap/gas chamber.
There is nothing anti-nationalist (!) about closing borders, or enacting other authoritarian measures, to contain a pandemic. Nationalism is not self-centered liberalism or libertarianism. It places the good of society (including the future) ahead of individual autonomy and selfishness. There is equally nothing per se wrong with epidemiological lockdowns, though I have questioned whether they were necessary in the context of Covid (I say this as a fully vaccinated, voluntarily N95 + overlaying surgical mask-wearing American; I was among the earliest persons masking, even in my very ‘blue’ city and state). We knew early on that Covid danger was heavily concentrated among the aged (and that most people globally would eventually contract some variant of it). Therefore, the proper approach (and I said this at the time, and I think have emails proving so; maybe some comments here, too, though I’m not sure about that) was, OTOH, to massively move to protect the elderly and other vulnerable persons, while, OTOH, letting it rip among the general population. I certainly never favored just clamping down on the economy, while cranking up the inflationist money creation to push the ensuing economic damage into the future.
The objective should have been to protect the vulnerable while pushing for herd immunity as rapidly as possible. I think all the crackdowns were mostly just an excuse for an unbelievably long paid vacation for vast hordes of government “workers”.
I would say WIN is concerned with preventing white extinction, and protecting white people, culture, heritage, autonomy, sovereignty, and interests. If that makes whites happy, great! But if it doesn’t (and it won’t for tens of millions of ethnomasochists), too bad.
There is nothing anti-nationalist (!) about closing borders, or enacting other authoritarian measures, to contain a pandemic. Nationalism is not self-centered liberalism or libertarianism. It places the good of society (including the future) ahead of individual autonomy and selfishness.
I like my Prussian Socialism just as much as the next W.I.N. guy, but I don’t let my judgment get clouded by abstractions. In the concrete situation that we are in, the Covid crisis has been used by our enemies to destroy us economically and strip us of our ancestral rights.
And substituting natural health for state-imposed vaccine regimens in no way promotes the “future good” of society. It serves only to compromise our virility and make us wards of the medical-state apparatus, the exact opposite of the Hitler Youth.
There is equally nothing per se wrong with epidemiological lockdowns
Except that it’s based on false science, a Bacon-esque arrogance, which presumes that the “empire of man” can erect boundaries against the spread of highly transmissive viruses. The best way to counteract epidemic disease is to feed the people well, mandate outdoor exercise, keep the streets and rivers clean.
This is naively delusional as the powers that be do not make their decisions based on such logic, they are objective enemies that can not be reasoned with. Biden has opened the door to mass invasion by waves of Haitians through Texas regardless of their vaccination or health status, for covid or any other diseases that are actually important such as hepatitis, aids, etc. This was in the midst of draconian vaccine mandates too.
Many on the dissident right initially took covid very seriously, and many of us did call for closed borders and even lockdowns. These demands would have been denied even if every one from Ben Shapiro to skinheads had called their congressman- precisely because it would have controlled the initial spread, and thus lessened the pretext for tyranny. With time, we wised up to what was really going on. It is unfortunate that you did not.
If the main point of this article was that covid was a missed opportunity, then that should have been the majority of the article. Instead, most of it reads as a copy paste of CNN talking points. That is poor argumentation strategy to say the least.
By what mechanism would you suggest White Identity Nationalist or just dissenters in general have gone about imposing their will on the authorities? The whole point of the last 50+ years of technocratic progressivism is to insulate ‘democratic institutions’ from the will of the people. The virus was unleashed because there were more important things than allowing the borders and airports to be closed to prevent the spread of the illness to North America. It doesn’t matter what those things were that were more important to the Judeo-supremacist ruling elite. All that matters is that ‘What the people thing’ is not even in the top 1000 considerations or reasons for action. The author of the essay assumes a political reality that is the exact opposite of how things actually operate in North America.
It’s hard to believe the author of this piece is a person. The text and follow ups do feel like a computer projection.
In fact COVID is the perfect foil for the emergence and takeover of 5G, whose symptoms mirror those of “Covid” to a t.
The logic of the article is so forced and amateurish as to invite such speculation. In fact some of those illegal immigrants whom the author supposedly cares about restricting have reportedly not gotten the good vaccine, allegedly because the countries where they have immigrated from have not granted the vaccine manufacturers legal immunity (this according to a recent World Net Daily article).
Covid has made people on both sides of the issue paranoid.
The author might as well be a robot. Machines will be the only things that can function with increasing levels of electromagnetic cellular radiation. Biological organisms are further magnetized (electrified) through heavy metals in vaccines. Our planet is increasingly hostile to life and wisdom. The article is as idiotic as they come.
You should appreciate how destructive the entire conventional approach to the mass illness in China which began in 2019 has been. We desire advanced technology like smart cities but they come with a price which is corona-like illness. Instead of acknowledging the negative effects of this desire or addiction, we believe in fictional microscopic killers “jumping species barriers” or coming out of “shadowy labs” as the original cause of the suffering. Buying into the germ theory of disease is a convenient way to avoid dealing with our increasing dependence on modern technology, such as fifth-generation satellite networks. This issue is more important than white identity and, sadly, it is often whites like the author of this article or you, yourself, who either endorse the conventional wisdom on the topic or downplay its severity, respectively. This is not to mention white sociopaths like Bill Gates or Anthony Fauci who have caused more harm than any living persons today for the whole of humanity.
There is a certain amount of hysterics in this article. These hysterics have come from the mainstream media and found their way into the author unchecked.
The message is ‘we need to do even more’ which is what the media are saying right now. ‘Everyone needs a vaccine because this new strain: strain X is even more contagious than before’. And, “This is the big one guys, you better get your shit together. This time it’s real!”
I’ll go out on a limb. I imagine this author is slightly older, 60+. There is a sharp difference in how people feel about covid based on their age. Many people under 50 don’t really see covid as a threat. People over 60, especially into their 70’s and 80s are not only more susceptible to the virus, they are radically more susceptible to propaganda about the virus. Every time the media announces a new strain they become very animated about it.
These older people are reading about the ‘carnage’ the latest strain is predicted to cause. They’re getting the message from the media ‘we need tough mandates to stop this strain and make the vaccines we took really effective’, and ‘that the unvaccinated are stopping this illness from being wiped out’, and they remain deeply affected by the news around covid and they have a difficult time imagining some of this is generated panic and hysteria.
If the media tells them they are currently being murdered by the unvaccinated they will believe it sadly.
If the media also tells them ‘things are safer for the time being’ they will accept that too.
They take news about covid literally at face value.
Some of the smarter ones will say “but I don’t just watch CNN or read the newspapers, I read the SCIENCE”. But the ‘science’ they are consuming is heavily rigged and cherry-picked to ensure maximum vaccine uptake and exclude any other paths.
I’m getting the impression older people are being used as a vector to get others to take the vaccine. And I think it’s very sad. But I’m also aware of older people excessively self-isolating even from their own families because they think the virus is going to get them if they don’t. And I think that’s sad too.
Well I say older people can have these vaccines. They offer some protection after all. But they shouldn’t be manipulated into insisting others take them for them.
In this case older people should not have the final say.
Just a quick point on masks: My understanding on masks is there was scientific consensus they did nothing pre-covid. Then when covid appeared studies appeared saying ‘well they do work a little bit’
Perhaps they provide a very small advantage to struggling health system resources in a statistical sense. I’m not obsessively against wearing them in public for a while if they would help but I suspect they offer effectively zero personal protection or to others. They are a symbol of alarm and concern and conceding to a political myth in some respects.
I was mainly trying to offer an insight into the mainstream psyche – which, by the way, is not always and per se wrong. If there is “hysteria” about open borders and unrestricted travel, I won’t rush to condemn it. If people are animated about the latest strains, let’s apply the correct designations to them.
What I’m far less hysterical about than the average libertarian or faith healer is the risk of vaccinations. Can’t say I was in the least concerned about losing “spirituality” or suddenly dropping dead. But it felt pretty good to have a bit of extra protection, and I can only submit it has made daily life considerably more convenient.
Nota bene: You went out on a limb about my age, and you are not even close.
”I can only submit it has made daily life considerably more convenient”
Congratulations, you threw aside your freedom and dignity for convenience. All that will accomplish in the long run is encourage even more outrageous demands. Being weak only encourages further bullying.
Stick a sock in it, sonny. Just kidding.
I am not happy about the vaccine mandates either. I refused to take the Critical Race Theory training and they backed down. Then Biden sent out the mandate and we were told that despite the Governor outlawing mandates, because the state universities do take Federal funds, all employees will need to get the Covid vaccination, per [expletive] Brandon.
I’m actually not an anti-vaxxer and in fact I get a flu shot every year. I’ve had both the Covid jabs plus the booster ─ but I was told that I had until January 4th to get my vax documentation into HR or I would be making way for an under-60 diversity hire or out-of-state carpetbagger.
Unlike the author, however, I am extremely skeptical about the efficacy of lockdowns and more Covid paranoia. The lockdowns seem to benefit no one except for Amazon and the Globohomo corporate chains. Small businesses, of the type with owners that voted GOP in the last two elections, are either closing shop permanently or holding on by their teeth.
Also, if Trump were the one who had been elected and were now encouraging vaccination, the shoe would be on the other foot, with the social justice warriors playing the hall monitors for the other angle. Staying healthy is White Supremacy or something like that. Remember when Kamala shrieked in horror about Trump’s vaccine just before the election?
People are just not dropping dead in the doorways. I’m against the vaccine mandates given the light severity of the disease for most demographics, except maybe for healthcare entitles and those who care for the elderly. Ideally, all of us have different health concerns and we can decide on our own whether we will be getting the jab or not. A lot of otherwise decent White Nationalists are still smoking, after all.
Personally, I think the risk of the shot is overblown and I don’t like getting sick. The last time I had the flu was over 30 years ago and I thought that I was going to die. The flu has been killing the elderly for a very long time.
According to the Coronavirus Worldometer, the worldwide mortality is 2 percent and of the 22.8 million worldwide who currently have the disease, only 0.4 percent are serious or critical cases.
Over 246 million have recovered from Covid worldwide, with about 5.4 million deaths (about 2 %). The 1918-20 “Spanish” influenza killed between 40 million and 100 million worldwide.
We definitely don’t need more lockdowns. My state is in the 13th worst place for Covid, and the mortality is a little less than the typical 2 percent. Given what I have seen about it, I would encourage people to get vaccinated.
However, I don’t really care if anybody else gets the shot or not. It is like a bad flu but nothing to get hysterical about.
The average age of those who died with the Spanish flu was 28. For Covid, it’s 82. Italy just downgraded its death tally from 130k down to 3k because death from Covid is quite different from death with Covid.
Debora Birx of the White House task force is on video saying authorities are liberally attributing to covid deaths what may not be caused by it but merely where covid contributed to death.
Besides that, one cannot do a proper risk benefit analysis on a so called vaccine that is wholly experimental, whose short term as well as long term effects are fuzzy.
The idea that nobody dies of Covid unless the only health problem they have is Covid is a completely bogus and dishonest attempt to minimize the danger of the disease. Since practically everyone in our increasingly aging population has one “comorbidity” or another, I am not sure who really feels safer when this transparent deception is trotted out, but it never seems to die.
I was wrong on your age, but it was a reasonable guess.
Right: It’s chosen hysteria on this while remaining willfully negligent about open borders. It will elect hysteria on topics that give it more power while working to deny alarm on issues that undermine its power.
I haven’t kept up to date on the latest news re vaccination risks, although I saw Dr Malone posted a study recently about this on Twitter which he was critical of.
I was acquainted with someone quite young who had a cerebral hemorrhage shortly after getting the vaccine. Was that going to happen anyway ? I guess according to the fact checkers and Atlantic articles it was. Greg says it’s dishonest to claim someone died with covid vs died from covid but the same standard has to be applied to the vaccine too.
Even if the risks of serious events are low, that could not have been conclusively known from the outset, and there is clearly an ongoing, determined and industrialized effort to willfully under acknowledge/suppress all severity of risks as part of an aggressive campaign to hide negative news and opinion about the vaccine at any cost. We are being pressured to make health choices in a rigged game.
We probably won’t know the full impact of the vaccines for 10 years or more. But clearly more and more jabs means more and more risk exposure, more potential for adverse events, more and more suppression/agitation of the immune system with unknown consequences, more and more selective pressure on the virus itself to find new mutations to evade the vaccine. Which means endless vaccines. It’s very difficult to frame that as some triumph of medicine.
But even with zero-risk from the vaccine, what do I need it for ? I don’t.
The case for the non-vulnerable to be vaccinated is an overall reduction in transmission rates as I understand it, presumably from the symptomatic, assuming the data I saw on this is honest, which can’t necessarily be assumed anymore.
They are selling a kind of ‘social responsibility’ argument (which like hysteria they switch on with topics they want and switch off again on topics that don’t favor them). But their effort to shift the jab into a default moral position immediately was itself very immoral and misleading.
Whatever new problem covid is claimed to pose they present a thumb twiddling hollow discussion mixed with fear trolling based on ‘models’ about whatever the new strain is followed by the conclusion: the answer is always another shot.
So my social responsibility to get the jab to protect someone else isn’t one jab, it’s a lifetime of vaccines, maybe 6 shots a year to be ‘really responsible’, to hand over my immune system to globohomo for a disease that’s extremely unlikely to be dangerous for by far the majority of people to keep a doomed strategy going for no other reason than group hysteria. This is insanity and it’s not so much about libertarianism, there are strong realist limits to what we can expect of others.
And what I’m aware of in real life is quite a lot of people aren’t reading the facts about strain X, they are just absorbing the fear trolling and taking the feelings generated by the fear trolling as the facts. They aren’t acting on facts.
Of course there are no actual long term solutions this way. There are just endless shots being administered forever and damn the consequences. That situation will inevitably be built on again in the future when there’s a new virus, so now we are all locked into a system of vaccine passports just to do basic stuff we could do anyway pre-covid. Great.
The reality is at this point covid-19 is just with us like colds or flu. Targeted vaccinations for the most vulnerable and natural immunity for everyone else would seem to be by far the better and sane plan.
If others want to elect to have a vaccine that’s fine too, but for some reason it always comes back to this obsession with intervention and ‘doing more’ at any cost. This ‘triumph’ of tech over nature at any cost. Endless vaccines, endless iPhones, endless concrete jungles, endless Amazon deliveries. Indeed, endless open borders for the convenience of Jews and mega corporations. If this is the future it stinks. I see no reason to concede to any more of it.
Covid will remain an invisible and lucrative demon just like the threat of terrorism after 9/11. It’s ‘out there’ and ‘can strike at any time’ and ‘the world is going to have to change’. And honestly some people like the fear. They really get off on being scared. They like the idea of holding onto this thing and then obsessing about masks, vaccines and other measures as rituals and that their contribution is keeping this invisible menace at bay, but of course it’s never enough we need to do more…
This article bends the knee so hard it makes the case for suspecting the site turning into some kind of honeypot. K expect this kind of drivel from Twitter bluechecks, not from here.
Sounds like paranoid ideation to me.
The problem with this author’s reasoning is that the same people who cannot be trusted to manage effective immigration, the same people who refused to close the borders and all air traffic into North American are the same people saying vaccines are safe and have value.
The (universally adverse) effects of a low-trust society finally came to the head in 2016 with the outrageous response to the election of Donald John Trump. The other side did not trust the election and reacted accordingly. In 2020, a different side did not trust the election and acted accordingly.
The professions have been corrupted to the point where legitimate science in the public interest is not even possible if that science goes against some ‘executive order’ or ‘news protocol’.
There’s no answer to the COVID Problem because the COVID Problem isn’t a problem of viruses and public health.
It’s a problem of trust.
Is this still counter currents or did I just get transported Into the spider verse?
Agreed. I must have clicked on counter-counter currents bistake.
Masks are not “muzzles.” They are properly called nappies—face diapers.
One of my friends refers to it as the “unisex niqab,” which is now my term of choice.
Two disses with one word! I like that.
I call them “fag rags”.
In light of the overwhelming evidence these shots – which are not true vaccines – are dangerous, advising people to not partake of them is far from “idiotic” and the evidence is out there for anyone to see. This nonsense should get peddled at Buzzfeed, not Counter Currents.
When a bad batch of broccoli makes the rounds, the recalls hit hard and heavy. Why is it this killer drug is left on the market when other things, like food, get pulled so fast they give you whiplash?
Here, here! We don’t need to visit Counter Currents to find garbage like this.
I want to see intelligent, honest discourse (which everyone bar two in the comments section has) on this site; get them libtards out of my Counter-Currents!!!
One is not a libtard for being concerned about a dangerous pathogen. Talk to most medical personnel; they have Covid stories, and they aren’t pretty.
Anyway, I continue to think it a grave tactical error for the Far Right (whether libertarian or, even more bizarrely, ethnonationalist) to have been seen as either cavalier or callous or overly ideological in our communal response to Covid. You are essentially questioning scientific consensus. You might be correct (as in the case of racial science; but then there are enormous incentives for even scientists of integrity to back away from scientific pronouncements on racial differences). But in something life and death like plague, the incentive structure bends towards truthfulness. If most doctors thought the shots were dangerous (relative to Covid and contrasting the chances of Covid vs the vaccine doing the greater harm to most people), I trust them to say so. You can call me naive or feckless, etc, but then perhaps you haven’t known many doctors (or otherwise inhabit an ideological and cultural echo chamber).
Facts: The medical profession also caused an opioid epidemic in our country and has mostly gotten away with it. The government agencies that be have allowed our food to be poisoned with HFCS and seed oils. The old food pyramid said that carbs were the most important food.
Lesson: the medical/ health profession like most other institutions can no longer be trusted due to a mix of incompetence, greed, nepotism, circular citation and at times even malice. At this point, the CDC has scarcely more credibility than the ADL.
How was the opioid epidemic caused by the medical profession, exactly? That sounds like whiny liberal victimization rhetoric to me. I’ve been prescribed opioids on many occasions (never Oxycontin, however), and have greatly benefitted from them. I used them as prescribed, and do not use them now. Most people who have opioid addiction issues, as with other drug addictions, voluntarily abused them in the past (and continue to do so).
I don’t agree that the CDC is equivalent to the ADL. The latter is an ethnic hate organization; that is its purpose. The CDC may be subject to typical bureaucratic incentives and episodes of occasional bungling followed by people covering their assets, but it does have many serious and dedicated professionals of very high caliber on its staff. You can’t make blanket generalizations just because you dislike the overall Deep State. Same applies to the military. We shouldn’t romanticize it or fail to see it as it really is, but we also shouldn’t fail to recognize that it has good white men among the diversity, lesbians and wokesters. I support substantially defunding the Army and Marines, but I respect the serious soldiers still found throughout the Armed Services.
@ Lord Shang
As everyone else has already mentioned: the Wuhanic China COVID-19 Plandemic has a survivability rate of 0.01%. If you have ever done math, you know that 1% percent is less than 10%; and 0.1% is smaller than 1%; and 0.01% is smaller than 0.1%. Figure it out!
IMHO thought this was a complex thought experiment for an alternate timeline in which the Dissident Right had tangible political power and influence. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!
No, seriously, get this libtard out of here.
Meanwhile, on late Friday night the 6th Circuit lifted stay on the OSHA mandate. Looks like this is going to Supreme Court, and I don’t have confidence in Roberts or Barrett (adoptive mother of two black children).
I thought it strange that we in the US were having it so much easier than people in Australia, Germany, Austria, etc etc . . . . This is a coordinated action from the highest reaches of globalist power, and it was naive to imagine that our courts would ride in to rescue us.
The people need to resist, but how? Massive demonstrations in the streets of Europe have had no effect thus far.
I’ve seen a lot of people wearing home made shirt signs that say what they do for a living and how many years they have been doing it. These are not professional Antifa thugs, they are the people that keep the economy and society going.
If you ignore these people you are saying that you are absolutely ready to do without hospitals that work and buildings that go up on schedule, in order to reduce the workers to branded cattle.
Nobody knows what the next step is.
When the clot shots came out, I was a live and let live kind of guy, ie. if one wants to take it, he should be free to do so, but leave me alone.
The more I read about the Marek effect, the more I believe those who line up for the jab are harming me. Not to mention the fact that their enthusiastic jabbing enabled and encouraged the totalitarianism we are seeing in every western country.
Let no person ever say this website isn’t willing to kick the hornet’s nest on this side of things by publishing unpopular viewpoints.
I don’t have a problem with an intelligent argument on Counter Currents that challenges the dissident rights’ perception of COVID. This fell terribly short and is littered with inaccuracies, including the ludicrous claim that COVID has a 1% death rate. It read like a boiler plate corporate media propaganda. Theoretically, COVID could have been used to illuminate the dangerous of open borders and reliance on global supply chains. That prospect paled in comparison to the opportunity it gave the ruling class to further cement their hegemony over us. It’s hard for me to fathom how anyone on the dissident right can see the virus as anything but a tool of the enemy. Like the ring of power, it tempts us to believe we can wield it for good but in the end it will only destroy us.
A healthy society takes care for the sick. A sick society punishes the healthy.
Morality has been inverted in the west.
Why is Counter Currents publishing trash like this? There’s having your views and perceptions challenged, which is great and many CC writers do it well, and then there’s being trolled.
