In the world in which we now live–where certain people are not allowed to speak or write about certain topics–it’s heartening to learn that even though some folks are silenced, others are not (but only because the silencers are confounded when it comes to treating these other folks the same way they treat the silenced folks).
Equity. It’s only a word. In this instance, it’s a blessing to us that equity isn’t being delivered to certain folks.
Save this link for future reference. You may want to review the 30 facts to know about COVID before reading the rest of this post, but it’s not necessary.
The facts to which the post pertains will be quoted as a prelude. More from the link:
A “training exercise” predicted the pandemic just weeks before it started. In October 2019 the World Economic Forum and Johns Hopkins University held Event 201. This was a training exercise based on a zoonotic coronavirus starting a worldwide pandemic. The exercise was sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and GAVI the vaccine alliance.
The exercise published its findings and recommendations in November 2019 as a “call to action”. One month later, China recorded their first case of “Covid”.
From the “call to action,” linked in the quote above:
Governments will need to partner with traditional and social media companies to research and develop nimble approaches to countering misinformation. … National public health agencies should work in close collaboration with WHO to create the capability to rapidly develop and release consistent health messages. For their part, media companies should commit to ensuring that authoritative messages are prioritized and that false messages are suppressed including th[r]ough the use of technology. [emphasis added]
Remember: all of the above was discussed, developed, written, and published before the COVID-19 pandemic began, almost as if the global elite had a crystal ball, a time machine, or inside information from a supernatural entity.
In addition, they already had their plan to disseminate their narrative and only their narrative, using social and mainstream media to promote their propaganda; quash all questions about or opinions in opposition to their propaganda; and to label those questions and opinions as “misinformation” or “disinformation,” all in collusion with governments.
Their plan seems to have been implemented despite, not necessarily in concordance with, local laws or guiding documents, such as constitutions, which are supposed to define and limit the powers of a government, while guaranteeing and preserving the rights of the People who look to that government for protection.
Since COVID-19 began to infect our country, citizens have found themselves muzzled, censored, deplatformed, and/or banned from social media. They’ve been ridiculed, excoriated, and doxxed in “traditional” media. They’ve been physically and psychologically attacked for daring to exercise their reason and free speech, for daring to ask logical questions, or for daring to go against the “authoritative messages” spewed by public health agencies in collusion with the WHO (World Health Organization).
Not so, however, in response to recent musings by some of the aforementioned “different folks” (i.e., Black celebrities) who seem to be getting “different strokes” from the leftist media, which are in collusion with governments.
The “different folks,” thanks be to God, for the time being are allowed to speak and subsequently are being heard when they make statements and ask questions that many others have tried to ask since the advent of the vaccines but who have been smacked down hard by the powers that be, namely the “governments” that collude with “traditional and social media companies.”
Governments implies politics, and it’s not especially politic to openly muzzle certain members of what you perceive to be your “base.”
What’s more likely to happen is that carefully and quietly, behind the scenes, the colluders will lean on those who employ or represent or have contracts with these mouthy celebrities. What will happen next remains to be seen.
For now, it looks like different strokes for different folks and, as I said before, thanks be to God that word is getting out.
Rapper Nikki Minaj famously spoke her own truth when asked her vaccine status. She responded forthrightly and we surely applaud her for her courage, fortitude, understanding and championing of simple human rights. (Trigger warning: there’s a whole heck of a lot of misinformation in the article linked above. Pay no attention; refer back to the 30 facts you should know about COVID.)
Although full of propaganda, we learn from the previously cited article that not only Minaj but also Busta Rhymes, NLE Choppa, Kanye West, Pete Rock, Juicy J, Migos’ Offset, Freddie Gibbs and Jay Rock, among others, have spoken out publicly about COVID-19, the vaccines, or onerous restrictions of citizens’ liberties.
Rihanna also seems concerned about freedom of thought, although she’s circumspect about the exact interpretation of her t-shirt. Nevertheless, the sentiment is one with which we wholeheartedly agree.
Over the past few days, several NBA stars have very publicly opined about COVID-19 vaccines, much to the dismay of the media. Even more dismaying to them is how eloquent, logical, and confident these men are in their responses.
Jonathan Isaac of the Orlando Magic said:
I’ve had Covid already, so our understanding of antibodies and natural immunity is still evolving. With my age group and physical fitness level it’s not necessarily a fear of mine. Taking the Vaccine, it opens me up to the rare chance of having an adverse reaction to the Vaccine itself. I don’t believe that being Unvaccinated means being infected, or being Vaccinated means uninfected. You can still catch Covid with or without the Vaccine.
(There are videos at the link worth seeing. Isaac is among the few who did not kowtow to BLM bullying.)
Nobody can argue with Isaac’s statements (in red, above), because “trusted messenger” Dr. Leana Wen recently said the exact same thing:
And those who are vaccinated, we now know, based on the CDC, they are now able … we … but, with the Delta variant, because they carry so much more virus, they could transmit it to their unvaccinated family members.
So Isaac is correct. Just because you’re vaccinated doesn’t mean you don’t have COVID-19: you very well could have it, carry a high(er?) viral load, and transmit it to others.
Conversely, just because you’re not vaccinated doesn’t mean that you do have COVID-19: if you don’t have it, you can’t transmit it. If you do have it, unlike the vaccinated who more often are asymptomatic, you’ll probably feel sick and won’t be out in public spreading it around to others.
Riddle free thinkers this: What’s the point of making only the unvaccinated prove they’re not infected via a negative test in order to enter a concert, a stadium, an airplane, or a workplace, when it’s as possible that vaccinated people may have COVID-19 and spread it to others, vaccinated or unvaccinated? (See what’s going on in Australia, e.g. It seems also untrue that vaccination prevents hospitalization or severe illness, or worse.)
If the goal is to stop the spread, then everyone–vaccinated or not–must be tested before gathering in tight groups.
If that’s not the goal, then what is the goal?
Finally we have another NBA star, Bradley Beal, who said:
I would like an explanation to you know, people with vaccines, why are they still getting COVID, if that’s something that we are supposed to be highly protected from? Like, it’s funny that, ‘oh, it reduces your chances of going to the hospital.’ It doesn’t eliminate anybody from getting COVID, right?
Watch the videos at this link where Beal calmly points out to the vaccinated members of the media that they can still get COVID and “can still pass it along” despite being vaccinated.
Beal also mentions that “players and coaches and staff” are vaxxed but are still missing NBA activities because they have contracted the virus. In the second video at the link, Beal reiterates that it’s a “personal decision” for every person to make and this should be “respected” by everyone.
