Face Masks Refusal Says so Much, Because Courage is the Prerequisite to All Virtuous Behavior:

That’s called freedom. Everyone does what they want. No one does what they don’t want. Morality and ethics and justice and all kinds of methods of social cohesion play a role in that, but men with badges and guns play no role among free men. They are an inconvenience at best.

Anyone who needs obedience in order to lead, doesn’t know how to lead free people.

At a moment like that, in a pivotal moment that separates the men from the boys, I hear the boys whine something inconsequentially from the corner: “Those people who think masks mean something are totally deluded. They aren’t a symbol for anything. They are just a way to protect others.”

No, the foundation of what the maskholes advocate for is a lie, for masks don’t work against Covid-19. Masks may, in fact, do more harm than good. You won’t fool me by calling the truth “anti-science.” You won’t fool me by calling your lies “consensus” loudly in the media. Truth needs no bullhorn. You make the lies you profess all quite apparent to me, the more you deny society an honest debate among critical thinkers. (emphasis mine)

There’s nothing else for masks to be considered than a symbol. The only thing masks are is a symbol. There is virtually nothing else a mask is good for on the faces of healthy people in the general population, but as a symbol.

And what are they a symbol of?

They are a symbol of gutlessness and blind obedience. (emphasis mine)

Of course, the gutless want the world to believe face masks are symbolic of nothing. Of course, the gutless want the world to believe they work, even if that means millions die in the superstitious ignorance of believing a face mask works for them, rather than to live longer, healthier lives armed with ways that really can prevent premature deaths from respiratory diseases.

Tens of thousands of Americans have died needless deaths this year because of the superstitious ignorance touted in the mainstream about how to preserve your life in 2020. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions have died globally believing the same superstitious ignorance.

Let them die “and decrease the surplus population,” says Ebenezer Scrooge and his ilk this Christmas, ilk seen in governor’s mansions, at anchor desks, and in white lab coats around the world, ilk that do not deserve the trust of the common man. (emphasis mine)

If you are listening to the advice of anyone who says the best ways to prevent transmission of a respiratory virus are 1.) face masks, 2.) lockdowns, 3.) social distancing, 4.) vaccines, 5.) PCR testing,  6.) Covid passports, 7.) handwashing, or 8.) disinfection you are listening to someone who is either ignorant or not operating in your best interest…

DB Note: Spot on correct! The world is filled with cowards today: the lowlife-scum cowards at the top of this planet-sized cesspool (the inbred, Anglo-Zionist vermin), the military cowards who volunteer to rape, pillage, torture and mass-murder helpless men, women and children in third world countries, the corporate-pig cowards, like Bezos, Gates and the rest of the silicon valley scum, the (s)elected-stooge cowards in the oval office, congress, and at the state and local level government, the medical-quack cowards, like Ferguson, Fauci and Birx, who over the last ten months, have been primarily responsible for the most heinous crime ever to be perpetrated on humanity. These cowards are all deserving of execution!

Quote from the following article:

…in case you think the dissenters are just an uninformed rabble — and I’m undependable fake news — as of December 23, 2020, there are more than 760,000 folks, including 39,384 Medical practitioners13,035 Medical & Public Health Scientists and 709,443 concerned citizens — so far — who signed The Great Barrington Declaration, dissing The Establishment’s alarmist, misleading and destructive handling of COVID-19. It says in part,

“Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health … with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden.” and “with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.” …”Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza. ” …”Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. “

And there’s the economic devastation, mentioned previously, as well – – –

The UK’s envoy [Dr. David Nabarro] to the World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) has condemned mass coronavirus lockdowns, slamming the “ghastly global catastrophe” caused by crashing the world economy. –W.H.O. Condemns Coronavirus Lockdowns, ‘Doubling’ Global Poverty

So now, more than ever, the newsies and elected prevaricators desperately need to defend their destructive policies and find confirmations supporting their COVID-19 legends, myths and bald-faced lies, especially their 10 times more devastating than the virus and ineffective lockdowns.

Or they need to imagine more confirmations into existence. They seem to have a preference for the imagination route, probably because that’s easier — and legitimate supporting evidence for the Official Narrative is hard to find.

So, the thing to remember when you see any politician or MSM newsie with lips moving about “THE PANDEMIC,” whatever comes out is likely powered by the need to confirm their previous COVID-19 legends, myths and lies and will likely be wrong, distorted and usually legitimate-evidence free…

Remember this old adage:

“Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me!”?

For the American sheep to the slaughter, this old adage would need to be changed to this:

“Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me ten-thousand times, shame on those who claim you are fooling me again!”

Never, in the history of mankind, has there ever been a more dumbed-down, gullible/naïve and completely submissive/obedient to authority populace than the American sheep to the slaughter:

Let’s Play a Disinformation Game

By 

We’re well into a serious case of panic-driven pandemic, powered by fear, sustained by arrival of sasonal flu, and amplified by confirmation bias.

One group — the newsies and politicians — have something else to fear besides just the virus. That’s the public reaction when folks finally realize how those people have bamboozled them into abject poverty, 270 million facing starvation, and even death.

Because it’s not the virus that’s causing this, it’s the pseudo-scientific Narrative Pandemic with its lockdowns, etc, foisted on us by the political class and amplified by a compliant corps of MSM (Main Stream Media) presstitutes.

As multi-credentialed Dr. Roger Hodkinson put it, “this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.“ He has a few other interesting things to say in that clip as well.

In fact anti-mask-and-lockdown riots in such refined countries as GermanyFrance, Spain, Italy, Great Britain, and eveen Chile, to name a few, suggest those two classes of ne’er-do-wells have good reason to be nervous.

And, in case you think the dissenters are just an uninformed rabble — and I’m undependable fake news — as of December 23, 2020, there are more than 760,000 folks, including 39,384 Medical practitioners13,035 Medical & Public Health Scientists and 709,443 concerned citizens — so far — who signed The Great Barrington Declaration, dissing The Establishment’s alarmist, misleading and destructive handling of COVID-19. It says in part,

With that in mind, let’s play a game – – –

CAN YOU FIND THE MISTAKES?

Remember those old puzzles when you were a kid? There would be a picture with mistakes in it for you to find. OK, in this modern version, how many mistakes can you find in this two-minute 49 second Lemming-maker, broadcast by NBC affiliate WPXI, Pittsburgh, Dec 15, 2020 with the header, “Hospital capacity a major concern in Western Pennsylvania” – – –

The segment starts out with a plaque showing 509,320 “TOTAL CASES” in Pennsylvania. That number is cumulative since last February and so misleading because it’s not the current active case total which is much smaller since most folks recover quickly. And most of those cases were/are just infections that were mislabeled anyway, not real cases. That’s because by over 100 years of scientific practice and tradition, infections require symptoms and/or hospitalization — not just a positive test — before they can legitimately be called cases.

And then there’s the fact that at least 40% of what they insist on incorrectly calling cases show no noticeable symptoms. Those are the folks they call “asymptomatic.”

And of course, the RT-PCR tests they’re using show a lot of false positives, so many of those cases aren’t even real infections, let alone cases. But that’s a whole deeper level of misinformation. Feel free to completely ignore it and we’ll take the official nonsense at face value.

So now, taking the official nonsense at face-value — and FWIW — here are the mistakes I see in the above video – – –

  1. The headline out-and-out lies about the COVID situation in Western PA. and you know this because the content directly contradicts the headline. As you can see from that content, while “Hospital capacity” may be “a major concern in Western Pennsylvania,” it’s definitely not to the hospitals. For example, this from UPMC Chief Medical Officer Dr.Don Yealy: “I actually do not believe that we will have any difficulty providing the care that’s needed.

  2. The numbers they’re feeding “an unsuspecting public” are not actual tallys. Typically they’re generated by computer simulations, in this case as the clip confesses, one from Minnesota. Some nerds aptly call such output “technical fiction.

  3. The news media misrepresents the situation by selective horror. For example, the first graphic in the clip shows hospital capacity overall in Allegheny County — that includes Pittsburgh — at 81%. The newsie, Lisa Sylvester, suggests “that’s pretty bad.”

No it’s not. Hospitals need to be at about 80% capacity to make money so hospitals don’t even regard 81% as “brisk business.” Then she goes on to say, “The real problem is that here, the hospitals are running out of room.” No they’re not because – – –

  1. – – – the WPXI story misleadingly chooses to show the two Allegheny County hospitals which are at or above 100% capacity — if that’s an actual tally — ignoring the rest that bring the average down to 81%. Are these hospitals able to increase their capacity and/or transfer patients or does St. Clair Hospital — shown at 115% capacity — let that extra 15% die in the halls or on the streets?

  2. No, St. Clair Hospital doesn’t let patients die in the halls or on the streets because hospitals can transfer patients — and increase their capacity if necessary. Indeed, via follow-up reporter Aaaron Martin, according to UPMC Chief Medical Officer Yealy, “hospitals are well positioned to handle the surge and are able to step in and help each other when needed. UPMC has 300 ICU beds available and they can double that number if needed.” Also, according to Aaaron Martin, referencing a spokeswoman from another hospital, “as of this morning, they have 300 ICU beds available system-wide and like their neighbors at UPMC, they are in no danger of running out of ICU beds anytime soon.

So, if “Hospital capacity [is] a major concern in Western Pennsylvania” but not to the hospitals, who IS it “a major concern” to?

So there’s another example of the pseudo-scientific Narrative Pandemic and then, on the other hand, there are the facts.

At this point it’s appropriate to paraphrase the U.S.S.R.’s monster, Joseph Stalin. Like this – – – It’s not the infections, cases, and deaths that define the pandemic, it’s those who count and report them that define itStalin was refering to voters versus those who count the votes.

And of course, seriously misleading narratives aren’t unique to Western Pennsylvania. There’s this article for example – – –

Catastrophic’ lack of hospital beds in Upper Midwest as coronavirus cases surge – The Washington Post

There are several tricks “those who count and report” COVID-19 like to use. First they report new “cases” most of which are almost always only “infections.” Even those depend on the number of iffy RT-PCR tests. The more tests, the more infections they discover — unless the numbers are completely computer-generated technical fiction. But either way they call them “cases.”

Another one is to look for a short-term fluctuation. Only the fluctuation is important. They choose the base numbers to show the largest fluctuation. Using these, they report a percentage increase. For example, say there were 10 new infections yesterday and today there were 12. The report would be, “CASES have just jumped by 20%.

Tomorrow there may be only 8 new infections, meaning a 33% reduction from those 12 new infections yesterday but you almost never see those numbers. For some reason.

Another trick is to tally up something and then report the numbers all at once. So, for example, they like to report the numbers weekly and/or monthly because the totals will look bigger.

And they only report bad news, usually the worst they can find.

And of course, they are prone to use computerized “technical fiction rather than actual tallys, which flesh-and-blood bureaucracies like coroners etc. can’t be expected to keep up with.

Also it helps a lot that the symptoms of COVID-19 are almost exactly identical to the flu — and this is flu season. And it doesn’t hurt the tally that hospitals may get $13,000 for a COVID-19 hospitalized patient and $39,000 if they put him/her/etc on a ventilator.

The newsies also love to report things they claim the “experts” — and others — worry might happen. Heck, me too! I might get struck by lightening, killed in an auto crash or fall in the tub or down the stairs. All but maybe the lightening are way more likely than that I get shut out of a hospital, especially when they can get a $13,000 bounty for admitting me.

With those tricks in mind, you might read through the “Catastrophic lack of beds” story above, while also keeping in mind the desperate search with Confirmation Bias fully engaged and the attempt to live-up to the headline.

If you do, you’ll finally work your way down to this:

[South Dakota Gov. Kristi L.] Noem’s spokesman, Ian Fury, said that Noem had no intention of changing her approach, noting that although the hospitalization rate has increased, 34 percent of the state’s hospital and ICU beds remain open.

And just to round-out the Big Picture, you can find the nemesis of the current nation-wide COVID-19 “overwhelmed hospital” confirmation bias stampede in this Tom Woods piece:

Is the hospital system “overwhelmed”?

SPOILER ALERT: No, it isn’t.

It directly follows — with evidence already provided — that these devastating and ineffective so-called “lockdowns” — and face masks — are nothing more than useless and damaging — and in most jurisdictions, technically illegal — mandated virtue signalling, promulgated by ill-informed, desperate, and/or dishonest elected liars and amplified by a compliant corps of MSM presstitutes.

And, the usual question, “What are you going to do about it?
