Chinese Have Had Enough Covid Tyranny

It is true that people can be duped or herded into tolerating and even voting for the likes of Joe Biden. But it is also true that there are limits to how much senseless tyranny they will put up with. This may be bad news for Biden’s colleague and business partner Xi Jinping, who continues to push Covid tyranny past people’s level of endurance:

Demonstrations against Xi, his oppressive Covid crackdowns and increasingly authoritarian rule are now sweeping the country – with activists taking to the streets of Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhan, and Nanjing in an unprecedented wave of dissent.

How do you say “Let’s Go Brandon” in Chinese?

Imagine how angry the Chinese must be if they are aware that their own government almost certainly created Covid at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Globalists will be pleased to see the Chinese and degenerate Western regimes come to resemble each other. The ChiComs have coopted social media by flooding Twitter with lewd spam:

Large numbers of Chinese-language Twitter accounts burst into life on Sunday and began inundating search feeds with racy images, suggestive videos and links to escort services.

Many of the accounts were created years ago and had been lying dormant, having posted little to no content.

But since protests spread across the country this weekend, the accounts suddenly began churning out thousands of posts per day.

Never mind liberty; have some porn instead. Similarly, Democrats offer casual sex without consequences via abortion.

The erotic images and videos included in the posts are accompanied by the names of cities to ensure that the distraction would turn up in searches for those seeking information on the demonstrations.

It is not working:

Clashes between activists and police have already taken place in Shanghai – which suffered through a months-long Covid lockdown earlier this year – with BBC cameraman Edward Lawrence arrested and beaten by officers in the city.

The BBC exists mainly to advance the cause of leftist Big Government. Poetic justice can be harsh.

Some are calling for Dictator for Life Xi Jinping to resign and even for the CCP to relinquish power. Anger is spreading to other grievances, including calls for free expression.

Experts say Xi cannot back down from his insane zero-Covid policy, nor can he allow the protests to challenge his rule, the legitimacy of which is based solely on brute force and fear. That means another Tiananmen Square is coming.

How will the Big Guy respond?

Now Teachers Unions Are Against Lockdowns

Teachers unions constitute a central pillar of the liberal establishment, brainwashing children with leftist ideology, strategically keeping them ignorant, and funneling vast amounts of money that originated with taxpayers into the Democratic Party. On orders from Randi Weingarten’s American Federation of Teachers, Biden’s handlers ordered the CDC to advise the Covid lockdowns that allowed teachers to avoid work.

Now that even liberals are starting to understand that the lockdowns were not only tyrannical and unnecessary but profoundly destructive, teachers unions are against lockdowns. Weingarten keeps a straight face while making an impassioned case:

Rank and file Democrats will use doublethink to erase from their minds that unions took the diametric opposite stance when it mattered. They think whatever they are told to think, whenever they are told to think it. To quote Occam’s Stubble,

We have always been at war with East Schoolclosia.

Alarming Aspirations at G20 Summit

Covid was only the beginning. The Liberal World Order learned a lot about how much tyranny we will tolerate. These lessons will be applied to the next pandemic. At the B20 (part of the G20 Summit in Bali), Indonesia’s Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin has called for digital health passports:

“Let’s have a digital health certificate acknowledged by WHO. If you have been vaccinated or tested properly, then you can move around. So for the next pandemic, instead of stopping the movement of the people, one hundred percent… you can still provide some movement of the people.”

As in the Soviet Union, you will still be allowed to move around on a limited basis, so long as you go where authorities want you.

Incidentally, the WHO is largely funded by American taxpayers but largely controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.

It used to be said that war is the health of the state. Now, it would be more accurate to say that sickness is the health of the globalist ruling class.

Also at the B20, founder of the sinister World Economic Forum/crown prince of the Davos crowd/cartoonish Bond villain Klaus Schwab reveals the scope of the tyranny they aspire to impose:

You don’t have anything that they don’t want to take away from you.

Hochul Dances Maskless Surrounded by Masked Children

Remember when Stacy Abrams — the election denier who used to claim she was Governor of Georgia — posed maskless in front of a group of masked schoolchildren?

This was especially politically incompetent because we knew from early on that Covid was not a significant threat to children and that the masks were bad for their health.

Yet even now, with Covid petering out, we see this:

Comments Not the Bee,

• Forcing children to wear masks is child abuse.

• Forcing them to wear a mask while you, as an adult, don’t wear a mask because of your superior status, is elitist hypocrisy.

• Forcing children to mask up while you dance and smile and use them for a photo-op is disgusting exploitation.

But as Shrillary might shriek, what difference at this point does it make? If the Covid tyrant Kathy Hochul could get reelected after the way she has been running New York, she need have no worries about the impression she leaves on voters. The state is so deep into the Democrat Death Spiral as to have achieved single-party rule.

This phenomenon occurs when the high taxes and suffocating regulations that come with Democrat control drive out enough productive citizens that those who remain can be counted on to vote for ever higher taxes so as to attain ever more freebies, driving out more productive citizens in a vicious cycle that does not stop until the entire state has become Detroit — which was once the wealthiest city in America.

Covid Tyrant Teacher Collects Award

Even now, as liberal establishmentarians call for amnesty for the damage they inflicted in the name of Covid, they collect awards:

Bobson Wong, a 17-year veteran math teacher, was just awarded $20,000 and the MfA Muller Award for Professional Influence in Education for “influencing the teaching profession in exceptional ways” and his “ability to have a positive impact within [his] school community and drive change outside of [his] own classroom.”

On Twitter, meanwhile, Wong regularly and publicly shares his disdain for the parents of his students who advocated opening schools — in Marxist, classist language.

“When I see the ‘keep schools open’ screaming about ending mask mandates from the comfort of their home offices in their posh neighborhoods unaffected by COVID, I shake my head. Centering your convenience at the expense of everyone is the embodiment of privilege.”

The irony could warp time and space. No one was more privileged during Covid hysteria than teachers whose politically favored unions kept them from having to work, even though everyone knew the virus posed a minimal risk to children. These kids have now fallen behind, their health was damaged by the senseless masks, they face a mental health crisis, and their parents may have been forced to leave the workforce due to unnecessary school closures.

No Go on Pandemic Amnesty

On behalf of fellow liberal establishmentarians, Emily Oster barks that they should be granted amnesty for the misery and destruction they inflicted in the name of Covid, on the grounds that they did not know any better. Not everybody is in a mood to forgive:

First, no, you don’t get to advocate policies that do extraordinary harm to others, against their wishes, then say, “We didn’t know any better at the time!” Ignorance doesn’t work as an excuse when the policies involved abrogating your fellow citizens’ rights under an indefinite state of emergency, while censoring and cancelling those who weren’t as ignorant.

Actually, they were not as ignorant as they pretend. There was plenty of evidence indicating that lockdowns and other mandates were not effective.

[T]he ultimate problem, from a legal perspective, with Oster’s call for “amnesty” for the advocacy of totalitarian policies during Covid [is] the implicit assumption that all those who advocated lockdowns, mandates, censorship and an indefinite state of emergency, all the way up the chain of command, did so in good faith. If those who advocated these policies are simply presumed to have done so out of well-meaning ignorance, then any inquiry into the many outstanding questions as to the origin of these policies – and the underlying motivations of highest-level officials who promulgated them – is foreclosed.

Forgiveness is usually a good policy where we find the three R’s of Remorse, Repair, and not Repeating the action. But here it seems progressives are only trying to escape the consequences of their behavior. There is no reason to believe they would not do the same or worse in the future, next time in the name of some other bugaboo, possibly the imaginary climate crisis.

Matt Walsh is in no mood to forgive:

Neither is Kari Lake; no wonder they fear her:

Most important is not to forget. The liberal establishment squandered the last of its credibility on Covid and now must rebuild it from scratch before being trusted with power.

Potential Juror Jailed for Not Wearing Covid Mask

Joe Biden let slip that the pandemic is over. Nonetheless, Covid tyranny continues:

There is no mask mandate in North Carolina, yet when Harnett County resident Gregory Hahn reported to the courthouse in Lillington this week without a mask for jury duty and refused to wear one, he was sentenced to 24 hours in the county jail with no bail for contempt of court.

There are no signs saying masks are required in the courthouse. But a March 2022 joint order from Harnett and Lee County officials (the two counties that comprise this judicial district) grants individual judges or the Clerk of Superior Court or the District Attorney the right to require them in their courtrooms or personal offices.

However,

[N]othing in the joint order says residents can be thrown in jail if they decline to wear one.

Typically, Superior Court Judge C. Winston Gilchrist was not wearing a mask himself as he sent Hahn off to jail in handcuffs. The single father’s request to call his child was denied.

All-powerful government of the type that has been congealing is characterized by arbitrary tyranny on scales both large and small. As the Founding Fathers understood, whatever power is granted to government will be abused.

Justification for Mandating Covid Vaccine Was a Lie

The Authorities told us we had to submit to a dangerous vaccine to stop the spread of Covid. If it were only our own health at stake, then maybe the liberal motto “My body my choice” (babies’ bodies don’t count) would apply. But no; the vaccine mandates that cost many people their jobs were imposed explicitly to stop the spread.

Now we know not only that the vaccine did not stop the spread, but that it was never even tested to see if it would:

After Covid, how can we ever trust these people again? How can we allow them to hold power over us?

Pfizer Sponsors Marvel Covid Jab Propaganda for Kids

No one will be surprised to hear that Marvel is once again subordinating children’s entertainment to the promotion of leftist politics, but can you believe that even now they are trying to brainwash kids into nagging Mom and Dad for the Covid jab?

Pfizer has partnered with Marvel to create a comic book to urge people to get their Covid booster vaccines and be an ‘everyday hero’.

The PR stunt comes amid a sluggish autumn jab rollout that has seen less than one in 20 eligible Americans receive their Omicron-specific shot.

Maybe that is because there is no sane reason to vaccinate children against a mild variant of a receding virus when the experimental vaccine is probably more likely to do them serious harm than the virus is.

Democrats have used a heavy hand to force people to get vaxxed even when it makes no sense for them. However, by now even Joe Biden, who has milked the ChiCom virus for the last drop of authoritarian pretext, has admitted that the pandemic is over.

Pfizer is also pushing for its new bivalent booster vaccine to be approved for children aged five to 11.

It’s almost as if Pfizer wants to make money regardless of public health. Imagine the firehose of cash it has been pouring into Democrat coffers.

California Silences Doctors on Covid

As United Nations propagandist Melissa Fleming crows, our leftist rulers “own the science.” That is, science has been repurposed to help them consolidate power. The main emphasis is the fictional climate crisis, but there is still opportunity to be wrung from Covid. Comically cheesy yet genuinely evil California Governor Gavin Newsom has just signed a bill to force doctors to toe the party line.

Via California Globe:

Newsom signed AB 2098 by Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Campbell), which will punish physicians and surgeons for “unprofessional conduct” for advocating for the potential benefits of early treatment with off-label drugs, or those who dare to ask questions about COVID vaccine safety.

Assembly Bill 2098 puts unconstitutional restrictions on free speech by medical professionals. Under AB 2098, doctors will be subject to disciplinary actions by the Medical Board of California and the Osteopathic Medical Board of California if they do not adhere to the “approved COVID treatment consensus.”

Punishment for “unprofessional conduct” ranges from 5-year probation to revocation of the ideologically noncompliant doctor’s medical license.

The bill is aimed at physicians who acknowledged the 1% mortality rate, questioned mandatory masks, school closures, and challenged the claim that the vaccine would shield patients from getting or spreading Covid. It is also aimed at physicians who chose to prescribe therapeutic treatments during COVID.

Although he still exploits the supposed emergency as a pretext to waste hundreds of $billions on student loan bailouts, Biden has said that the pandemic is over. But we won’t have long to wait for the next one. Any virus will do, with sufficient hype from the media.

Words Don’t Lie

Leftist technocrats like Anthony Fauci and leftist propaganda organs like Reuters may use words to lie, but the words themselves do not lie, as Rand Paul reminded us yesterday while also reminding us that The Science did not always mandate that people should be compelled to take insufficiently tested vaccines for diseases that they have already had:

Among the many reasons that Democrats must be driven from power is that when that happens, Fauci can be held accountable for lies that constituted felonies.

School Calls Cops on Special Needs 4-Year-Old

It has been obvious for years now that Covid tyranny is more of a risk than the ChiCom virus itself — especially to kids, who were never in any more danger than they are of the flu, unless you count the numerous health risks posed by sadistic Covid muzzles. Yet even now, we see public school educrats calling the police on a 4-year-old boy with developmental issues to haul him away for not wearing a mask:

[The] unnamed boy started transitional kindergarten at Theuerkauf Elementary on Aug. 10.

The school happens to be in Mountain View, California, home of our Google moonbat overlords.

The boy suffers from sensory issues and has had difficulty wearing a face mask during the pandemic. The boy became distressed when he had to wear a mask during visits to the doctor and dentist – but the healthcare workers made accommodations for the boy with developmental issues.

Even in the age of Anthony Fauci and Rochelle Walensky, healthcare workers will sometimes place health ahead of repression — in contrast to educrats.

The father – who only identified himself as “Shawn” out of safety concerns – claimed that he began communicating with the Mountain View Whisman School District in the spring. However, Shawn said the superintendent was unresponsive.

In the video below, Shawn is confronted by the principal, Michelle Williams, who apparently calls the cops on the boy:

If this is what we can see happening from outside a public school, imagine what goes on within. No wonder the teachers’ unions are so opposed to cameras in classrooms.

Mask Theater at Signing of Inflationary Blowout Bill

Joe Biden just signed away another big piece of America’s future in the form of the $750 billion tax-and-spend blowout known as the Inflation Stimulation Act. The event was classic Democrat mask theater:

If Joe Manchin is as smart as he is phony and treacherous, he will sterilize the pen he received for selling out his state and his country by voting for the bill. Biden has been diagnosed with Covid multiple times recently, and now his closest handler “Dr” Jill has it.

But I’m forgetting; the on-again off-again mask prop prevents him from spreading germs.
