Questioning the COVID-19 Narrative
This post is intended to point out the many logical fallacies surrounding COVID-19 (“CV19”), the government response to CV19, and CV19 vaccines. It is not intended to be scientific or instructional in itself, but to make people think and question what they are being told by the media, the government, and drug manufacturers. It is astonishing to me to even feel the need to suggest people should question what they are being told by these groups, but here we are in 2021.
Before anyone dismisses any of these sources, please note that most, if not all, of them cite secondary research. So, no, you cannot simply dismiss it as “crazy conspiracy theory stuff.” If you don’t like the source in which the data is conveyed, then go to the primary source and you can see the data directly. And if you don’t agree with the research, good for you. The point is to get people to question things.
If you’ve actually educated yourself in an unbiased manner, then none of this will probably be shocking to you. But if you’ve floated along eating what you’ve been fed like most, this might be insightful. If any of this is coming as news to you, I would encourage you to ask yourself why? Why haven’t you heard this anywhere else? After reading all of this, think about the answer to that question.
First, I will get these disclaimers out of the way up front so you can put these arguments to the side for the rest of your reading. Yes, people are dying as a result of CV19 in some cases. Yes, vaccines appear to have an initial effect against CV19 infection (for how long, to what degree, and at what risk will be mentioned later). Hopefully acknowledging this makes everyone feel better.
But let’s be crystal clear on what we are talking about. Based on a variety of sources, of all political bent and countries of origin, it seems the survival rate of CV19 is something north of 99%. And this assumes the CV19 death count is perfectly accurate, which is highly unlikely.
So, let’s just keep that in mind as we move along.
Natural Immunity & Lack of Effectiveness of Vaccines
Vaccines do not prevent infections. Qualify that however you want (e.g., “but it’s less severe,” which can be debated). That does not change the fact that high vaccination rates are not preventing the spread of CV19:
And yes, as much as there are some that would have you believe you MUST be vaccinated to gain immunity to CV19, you do in fact get natural immunity from having it. Yes, you can actually say that without it meaning you’re crazy and you want people to intentionally get infected to gain immunity. So save the false outrage on that one too:
How many boosters will you take?? Two a year forever? Even if they don’t prevent you from catching or spreading CV19? What are the side effects of the vaccines? See more below on that.
Fully Vaccinated Can and Do Catch and Spread CV19
Nothing controversial here. It is just a fact. Debate the implications of this all you want, but let’s all say it together: “Fully vaccinated people can catch and spread CV19”. Add whatever qualifiers you want with regard to severity, etc., but this is simply a fact people can weigh when deciding if they want to get vaccinated:
So you can choose to get a vaccine and you can still spread CV19. I can choose to not get a vaccine and can still spread CV19. As such my choice has nothing to do with you. It is up to each of us to do the risk/benefit analysis and decide if we want to get vaccinated.
And if anyone wants to argue that we should control other individuals’ health choices for the “greater good,” or to avoid “straining the system,” just stop. We’ve never done that, and everyone is free to make whatever terrible health choices they like. Or else we should probably be closing hospital doors to obese people, drug overdoses, smokers, STDs, etc.
Fully Vaccinated Can Die From CV19
Qualify this however you want as well, but it is a FACT that fully vaccinated people are dying from CV19.
CV19 Vaccines Can Kill People
My primary care physician recently commented “No one has died from getting vaccinated, but people are dying from COVID.” Hmmm…in case you haven’t heard, the vaccines can and have killed people. The likelihood of that outcome can be debated, but everyone can stop acting like it’s preposterous to say the vaccines can have deadly side effects. They can. Period. Weigh that against the risks associated with getting infected with CV19 and make your CHOICE.
Or go ahead and continue to factually state “no one has ever died from a Covid vaccine and we can’t even discuss it” – just let everyone know where you stand up front so they can save their time and move on with their lives.
Of course, you will hear the argument: “Well just because they died after getting the vaccine doesn’t mean the vaccine CAUSED their death.” I follow the reasoning…maybe we should apply that logic to people who die “from Covid” as well. Maybe we should NOT just apply a blanket to say anyone who died while positive with CV19 died as a result of CV19 (which goes back to the 99% survival rate likely being low).
Other Risks of CV19 Vaccines
Yes, we know – the vaccines are proven “safe and effective.” No one should question whether there are any risks of getting vaccinated and weigh them against the risks of getting CV19...sure. Or we could actually do our own analysis and make a decision ourselves. Which has nothing to do with you (start over at the top if you don’t understand why).
Of course, as everyone has always said “Trust Big Pharma” and “Trust Big Government.” Oh wait, no one said that until 2020. Much like the example of Merck and Vioxx, it always works out well blindly trusting Big Pharma and the FDA.
I mean, why would drug companies have any incentive to rush the approval of vaccines, for which they will have no legal liability regardless of side effects???
And remember the logic…even though there is a very insignificant risk of having serious consequences from CV19 you must get the vaccine! You should get the vaccine because you cannot ignore the very low chance of severe consequences from CV19…but you should ignore the very low chance that you will die from the vaccine. Got it:
Trust Big Pharma
Trust Big Pharma…said no one ever until one year ago. Like I said, what incentive would the drug companies have to rush the emergency use of vaccines while not being liable for any side effects or deaths??
A lying drug company with FDA approval has never hurt anyone, right?
Drug Company Liability
Under the PREP Act, drug companies are not liable for injury or death caused by the vaccines. The protection lasts until at least 2024. The guarantees of immunity are available to companies who manufacture CV19 vaccines, among others. Yes, that means even if everyone who gets vaccinated turns up with terrible previously unknown side effects in a year or two, no one can sue the drug companies.
Original Antigenic Sin
Have you heard any of the popular “experts” in the media talk about data suggesting negative efficacy of vaccines (i.e. they may actually make you more susceptible to CV19)? If you have not seen this data even debated anywhere else, maybe you should wonder why? Is it possible that the vaccine will actually weaken your immune system against other viruses in the future? Maybe this is something we should be talking about out in the open in the context of CV19 vaccines given the data?
This is not specific to CV-19, but this gives a general summary of the concept of Original Antigenic Sin. Read that before moving on.
The following articles/blogs discuss Original Antigenic Sin and/or negative efficacy in the context of CV19 vaccines. Whatever you may think of these sources, they have plenty of supporting data to go along. And yes…the numbers indicate CV19 rates in the UK are higher among the vaccinated than the unvaccinated.
Societal & Health Effects
In case you don’t have kids or are willfully ignorant of the situation, the various forms of school shutdowns (aka “remote learning”) had, and will continue to have, terrible effects on the education and social development of children. If you are well off and living in a bubble, you might not realize that the children needing the most help in their early years of school were some of the least likely to get that help at home.
And feel free to ignore increased suicide rates among kids…
Did anyone consider the effects isolation of seniors, and especially seniors living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, would have on our society? Would it be worth the risk to live life and potentially get sick versus being locked away to deteriorate alone?
Let me guess – drug overdoses are skyrocketing because everyone is scared and stressed by CV19. It probably has nothing to do with people being more isolated and at home receiving stimulus payments to not work.
While the powers that be would have you believe that inflation is a mystery that cannot be prevented, it is a direct result of printing trillions of dollars out of thin air. More money in circulation means it is worth less. So stuff costs more. Yes, it is that simple.
The government(s) effectively paralyzed the economy through shutdowns and then because of the harm this had on your businesses they decided to provide stimulus. Except the government does not have money to provide. It can only take your money in the form of taxes and give it back to you. But they shut down your business so where would the money come from? They created it out of thin air. See the previous paragraph.
So basically, the government shot you in the foot and gave you a band aid…and they will continue to shoot you in the foot through devaluation of the dollar.
These three charts should scare you:
On the pandemic accelerating the insolvency of Social Security:
But we are going to save millions of lives! By forcing tens of millions into starvation…
We’ve heard much discussion as to who should be wearing masks and when. The proposed OSHA work rules suggest unvaccinated in the workplace will be required to wear masks while vaccinated will not.
Why would unvaccinated be required to wear masks while vaccinated would not be? Let’s think about this. Both vaccinated and unvaccinated can catch and spread CV19. Fact. We are told unvaccinated will be more symptomatic (i.e. they, and us, will know they are sick). We are told vaccinated will avoid severe symptoms (i.e. they, and us, will not know they are sick). Yet they will be walking among us unmasked spreading CV19 while the unvaccinated will be home sick in bed with CV19.
So really – knowing what we know now, is there any reason to distinguish between vaccinated and unvaccinated regarding masks and social distancing in general? Or are we looking at it all wrong? Are the vaccinated now the real danger in spreading the disease? Should they be the only ones required to wear masks? I don’t believe that because, as you can guess, I don’t think we should be doing any of it. But be careful where your logic takes you because it seems the vaccinated are stealth spreaders.
As for kids being required to wear masks in schools and for sports, it is all utter nonsense. What effects does CV19 have on kids? If we are protecting the teachers, do we expect masks protect them when they are in the same room with the same children for 7 hours who will undoubtedly be taking “mask breaks”. Never mind the communication issues a mask causes for both the teachers and children, especially with early adolescents who are still developing vocabulary.
And never mind any health issues the masks might cause children! Of course, all those 6-year-olds can breathe perfectly fine in masks! And they have unlimited clean masks their responsible parents change out at home for them every night…or not. But hey, let’s sacrifice the health and development of all of our children to avoid the risk of someone getting a virus for which the outcome is most likely inconsequential.
So here is the question…how long will make your child wear a mask? To school or anywhere else? Where is the goal post? Is there even a goal post?
We are either told CV19 “shouldn’t be politicized” or “crazy conspiracy theorists are making it political”. I guess we should ignore all the doubt surrounding vaccines created by members of the current administration and their allies when their supreme leader wasn’t the President.
Remember when Andrew Cuomo didn’t trust the vaccines?
Remember when Kamala Harris said she wouldn’t take the vaccine based on the president saying we should take it?
Remember when Joe Biden said this:
“And one more thing: If and when the vaccine comes, it’s not likely to go through all the tests that need to be done, and the trials that are needed to be done."
Remember when doctors & nurses refused smallpox vaccines in 2003 even though the CDC approved a plan to vaccinate front line workers? Of course you don’t.
All I can say regarding politics at this point in November 2021 is the following. If you are a politician and plan to get elected or re-elected in 2022 or 2024 you better stop the madness. Vaccine mandates of any kind, masks, restrictions on businesses…ALL OF IT. Unless you are in a liberal stronghold lacking in free thinkers, the masses are fed up. Stop the nonsense.
No more opposition to GMOs?
To anyone opposed to genetically modified food ingredients, how are you OK with genetically modified mRNA used in vaccines? (And no, I am not saying the vaccines modify human DNA, which can be debated elsewhere, so save the exasperation on that).
My question is how do you reconcile being opposed to putting genetically modified corn in your stomach while being OK with injecting genetically modified virus strains into your tissue? Obviously, the vaccines have an effect on your immune system (whether we think that is good or bad) and have known side effects. On the other hand, there is no evidence proving consumption of genetically modified food has any effect on your immune system.
But if you don’t like GMO food, no problem - do your own risk/benefit analysis on that. I am not taking a position on GMO foods. Again, the point here is you do not maintain intellectual honesty when you argue the genetically engineered vaccines are “proven safe and effective,” but GMO food is dangerous. Do you follow?
If you are still not seeing the absurdity of all this, I think you’ll at least appreciate these.
The following website is provided by the government and was recently shared with parents in the context of active shooter training at a grade school. These gems:
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, focus on Run. Hide. Fight. Do not worry about social distancing, wearing a mask, or reducing the spread of COVID-19 during an active shooter situation.”
“If you are hiding with people who are not part of your household, wear a mask and maintain a distance of six feet between yourself and others, if possible.”
YES, YOU ARE READING THIS CORRECTLY – you don’t have to worry about social distancing during an active shooter incident! Well maybe just a little bit. Yes, in case you were still wondering, being killed by an active shooter is more dangerous than CV19! Thanks for letting us know Government!
No, those quotes are not parody – the following quote and other similar wisdom can be found at the link below.
And when it is all said and done, have no fear…if Big Brother decides the “pandemic” continues to be “out of control” and vaccines aren’t enough, the CDC is ready with a “shielding” operation. To translate “shielding” to English, it means categorizing people and putting them in camps as Big Brother sees fit. Don’t worry – they’ll “follow the science” when they decide which camp they will put you in. And it’s only for “humanitarian” situations, so no sweat – there’s no way the Government would ever put US citizens in camps on US soil.
The Bottom Line
It’s time for everyone to stop with the intellectual dishonesty. Remember wherever you fall with your beliefs on these issues, there are people that disagree with you. And disagreeing with your narrative of choice doesn’t mean they are wrong and you are right. If you are one of those people that thinks anyone who disagrees with forced vaccinations and heavy-handed government is just an uneducated moron who drinks bleach with Donny Trump…get over yourself.
Believe it or not, there are actually a large number of non-brainwashed citizens out there that are highly educated and can think for themselves, seeing through the propaganda from Government and the media.
If you want to get vaccinated, you should. If you are at risk, you should do whatever you need to do to stay safe. If you are already vaccinated, good for you. But don’t let your choice make you think you have some sort of moral high ground – you do not. What I do is my decision and has nothing to do with you, so stay away. If you don’t understand the reasons you do not have any moral high ground, and why my choices have zero to do with you, please start over at the top and actually explore the links.
And remember this even if you choose to ignore facts and continue to promote the nonsense…many of those around you, probably a majority at this point, are no longer ignoring it and are done being brainwashed.
