Something happened that I was beginning to think was as unlikely to occur as Bigfoot soaring in on a pegasus, sliding down a rainbow, and distributing the leprechauns’ gold stash to the 99 percent: a person who has been quadruple-jabbed and believes in the safety and efficacy of the injectable gene therapy product honestly asked me a question and engaged in a good-faith dialogue.
The question came up in the comment thread of Are You a Good German or a Badass German?, and I asked his permission to share our dialogue with you guys as I thought you could use a positive counterpoint to contentious encounters like this one.
He kindly granted permission but asked that I refer to him as ‘B,’ explaining, “I do live & work in wokeland (where even TALKING to the other side can get me ex-communicated).”
So, without further adieu, here is our congenial exchange.
B: Don’t know how I stumbled onto this Substack. I’m a somewhat “anti-woke” pro free speech Democrat. I think my fellow liberals are a bit nuts about masks. (Masks don’t help fight Covid very well). But I’m convinced that the imperfect vaccines are amazing and literally help save us from societal collapse. I’m over 50 and have taken all four shots as recommended. I didn’t vote for Trump & never will, but it’s great that he helped get the vaccines done so fast. I thin[k] everyone should take the vaccine and if more of us had we might actually be out of the pandemic. But maybe not. Covid is gonna Covid. But I trust the global medical consensus. Most of you don’t. Why?
I’m NOT ideological. Trans women aren’t women. Black lives have always mattered, and we didn’t need nightly protests about it. Free speech is the most sacred thing in our democracy. I think Elon owning Twitter would be a net good. I often listen to Joe Rogan.
Just letting you know who I am before you slam me. Just honestly tell me why you think the global medical consensus is wrong?
MAA: I’m not going to slam you, B—I am delighted to welcome you! And *thank* you for asking that question! That’s all those of us who have concerns about the safety and efficacy of the injection want—the opportunity to present the scientific evidence to someone who has an open mind and the courage to ask that question.
Indeed, my entire blog is devoted to answering that question, so I encourage you to explore the Archive. Since you are savvy to the ideological manipulations of the media, you may appreciate my first essay, which shows how propagandists sowed a climate of fear and division to inculcate people into a particular narrative that would justify the shift to more authoritarian governments worldwide.
Dr. Mike Yeadon, Pfizer’s former chief science officer/VP with 32 years’ worth of experience in commercial R&D, delineates the lies bolstering this narrative:
These articles address your question more directly:
And when you say “the global medical consensus,” understand that you are seeing what is presented by the media as the consensus—the same media that received a billion dollars to push the vaccine; the same media that gets 70% of its advertising funding from pharmaceutical companies (75% of their total budgets in 2020).
Because they have been censored, deplatformed, and smeared, you are not seeing the million+ (also see this and this) ethical physicians, scientists, medical professionals, and independent thinkers around the globe who are questioning the narrative.
Instead, you are seeing the representatives who 1) are knowingly deceiving the public; 2) have fallen under the same mass hypnosis as the majority of the public; or 3) are consciously committing scientific fraud because their paymasters have pressured them to do so.
I know of no better example of this than the case of Dr. Tess Lawrie and Dr. Andrew Hill. In Profiles in Courage: Dr. Tess Lawrie, I share excerpts from a Zoom meeting in which Hill admits to intentionally altering his paper to obscure the fact that ivermectin can reduce COVID fatalities by 80%. He acknowledges this deception will kill at least 500,000 people in six weeks (it’s been over a year now, so that figure is much higher in reality, especially when combined with financially incentivized hospicide) and that he’s being pressured to do this by his sponsor, Unitaid (a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation vehicle that gave $40 million to the university where Dr. Hill works).
