Do you remember when the censorship of a guy who made jokes about a fat woman who died of a heart attack was a single, isolated, unique situation, and no one else would ever be subjected to censorship like he was?
You should remember it, because it was only three short years ago.
Now, here we are today, and key organs of the global democracy system are openly calling for tens of millions of people to be silenced because of their views on a vaccine.
It sure would have been great if people would have listened to that guy who made the jokes about the fat woman when he was screaming “PLEASE, STAND UP AND OPPOSE THIS. THEY ARE COMING FOR ALL OF YOU NEXT!”
Yet, no one ever could have predicted that censorship was a slippery slope.
You live and learn, I guess.
The head of the world’s largest humanitarian network is urging governments and institutions to combat “fake news” about COVID-19 vaccines which has become “a second pandemic” and start building trust in communities around the world about the critical importance of vaccinating people.
Francesco Rocca, president of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, said in a virtual briefing to the U.N. Correspondents Association on Monday that “to beat this pandemic, we also have to defeat the parallel pandemic of distrust.”
He said there is “a growing hesitancy about vaccines in general, and about a COVID vaccine in particular” around the world, pointing to a recent Johns Hopkins University study in 67 countries that found vaccine acceptance declined significantly in most countries from July to October this year.
In a quarter of countries, Rocca said, the study found that the acceptance rate for a vaccine against the coronavirus was near or below 50 percent, with Japan dropping from 70 percent to 50 percent acceptance, and France dropping from 51 percent to 38 percent acceptance.
He stressed that the lack of trust “is by no means a Western phenomenon,” citing the federation’s research in recent months in eight African countries — Congo, Cameroon, Gabon, Zimbabwe, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Lesotho and Kenya — which showed a steady decline in the perceptions of the risk of COVID-19 infection.
A growing number of people indicated the virus doesn’t affect young people or Africans, that the disease doesn’t exist now but did exist and the pandemic has ended, he said. “In several African countries, we have seen a common skepticism towards vaccines in general, with a common belief being that foreigners use Africa as a medical ‘testing ground.’”
Surprisingly, Rocca said, some typically vulnerable and marginalized groups aren’t even aware of the pandemic, pointing to a federation survey in Pakistan which found 10 percent of respondents didn’t know about COVID-19.
“We believe that the massive, coordinated efforts that will be needed to roll out the COVID vaccine in an equitable manner need to be paralleled by equally massive efforts to proactively build and maintain trust,” Rocca said.
For the record, Rocca later told RT that they weren’t calling for censorship, they just want to “fight fake news.” Obviously, we all know what that means, and we are all sitting here watching tech companies silence anyone who questions the safety of these coronavirus vaccines, or even discusses any information about them in a critical way.
They’ve been mass-censoring virtually all information about the coronavirus as a matter of course since March. In the most extreme case (probably), they deleted a tweet that was retweeted by the President of the United States that just had screenshots from the CDC website.
“Twitter on Sunday took down a tweet containing a false claim about coronavirus death statistics that was made by a supporter of the baseless QAnon conspiracy theory — a post that President Donald Trump had retweeted earlier in the day.
The tweet — which has been replaced with a message saying, “This Tweet is no longer available because it violated the Twitter Rules — from “Mel Q,” copied from someone else’s Facebook post, claimed that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had “quietly” updated its numbers “to admit that only 6%” of people listed as coronavirus deaths “actually died from Covid,” since “the other 94% had 2-3 other serious illnesses.”
That’s not what the CDC said.“
Clearly, the mass censorship that has already been enacted isn’t working, with declining numbers of people supporting the vaccine. People are looking at the censorship and assuming that the government must be hiding something, or they wouldn’t be engaging in this extreme censorship. The solution to that is to enforce such extreme censorship that people don’t know there is censorship.
That is to say: you have to censor quickly and you have to censor anyone who talks about censorship. There probably also needs to be a fear mechanism attached to it, but that’s already been worked out: you send FBI agents to people’s homes after you censor them. They’ve been doing this to right wingers since 2017, and you don’t hear about it often because it freaks people out and they don’t talk about it, instead they get off the internet completely. Yet, from what I’m able to tell, the FBI has turned up at the houses of thousands of people who were not suspected of having committed a crime or having been witness to a crime (i.e., they showed up for the explicit purpose of intimidation).
I’ve been told that they will show up in their marked jackets so that the neighbors see what’s going on. It’s intended to be as traumatizing as possible.
It is obvious at this point that the plan is simply to ban everything that the government and the Jews don’t agree with. Given that it only took three years to get from “we’re only going to censor this one single guy who made the really mean fat joke” to mass censorship of the President, I would guess it would take less than three years to just make it totally illegal to disagree with anything. It’s a much smaller jump from where it is now to total censorship than from where it was before August 2017 to where it is now.
It’s actually fascinating that people allowed this to happen.
Free Speech and “Free Societies”
We are constantly told how important democracy is.
The core concept of democracy is that every person in society has the ability to make informed decisions about the way the country is run.
There is no reality in which someone can believe in the modern concept of universal suffrage democracy, and also believe in mass censorship.
I have written about this concept in detail: If Fake News is a Problem for Democracy, Then Democracy is a Problem
It simply does not make sense to say that people have the ability to decide how the government is run, but also that they need to have their information censored because they are incapable of making informed decisions if they have free access to information.
The founders of the modern system of democracy understood this, which is why “freedom of expression” is explicated in the United Nations’ “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”:
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
Obviously, that is no longer what we are working with in Western society.
Though it did contain some good ideas which I agree with and I think all reasonable people would agree with, I am not a supporter of the 1920s vision of a global democratic society. However, it was an internally consistent plan for a society. It has now clearly been abandoned, in more ways than one (I need to write up a full article showing the other ways it’s been abandoned), and yet, our governments and media are still telling us that this is what we are working towards.
We need to ask what is going on. Why are we being told that we are working towards building a democracy, whilst the system is violating core principles of this system more than ever before?
The obvious explanation is that we are no longer working to build a global democracy, and are instead working towards building a completely different global system, which doesn’t really have a name, but which could be described as “global Jewish tyranny.” This system they are building is one where there is a tiny elite minority ruling over an unwashed mass of landless peasants, and the peasants do not have any rights at all, and are subjected to a high-tech police state that controls not only their every move, but their every thought as well.
The former is nothing but TradCon delusional ideology.
