WHO Keeps With Scaremongering, Warns Of Doom From More Variants

Nothing like some good old fashioned doom-saying to attempt to keep the peons under control, eh?

The WHO warns that the pandemic is not over and the world should expect ‘more dangerous variants to emerge’

The World Health Organization on Friday warned that the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet over and said there’s a possibility of new variants.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told attendees at the Munich Security Conference in Germany that vaccinations and the fact that Omicron has turned out to be a far less severe variant are “driving a dangerous narrative that the pandemic is over.”

“But it’s not. Not when 70,000 people a week are dying from a preventable and treatable disease,” Ghebreyesus added.

“Not when 83% of the population of Africa is yet to receive a single dose of vaccine,” he continued. “Not when health systems continue to strain and crack under the caseload. Not when we have a highly transmissible virus circulating almost unchecked, with too little surveillance to track its evolution.”

Except, Africa never really had a big problem with COVID. Their infection rates, and, especially their death and hospitalization rates, were way, way, way lower than in the 1st World.

Ghebreyesus also warned that the world should prepare for the potential of more variants to arise.

“In fact, the conditions are ideal for more transmissible, more dangerous variants to emerge,” he said.

At this point, not many want to listen anymore. He could be 100% correct. Maybe there will be more variants flowing around the world from the Chinese coronavirus. We don’t know. But, people are tired of the government authoritarianism. Freedom leaning folks were tired of it back in 2020. Leftists are getting tired of it now, hence why so many governments are removing masking mandates.

There were very few cities and counties left in North Carolina which had mask mandates, and almost all were run by Democrats. They originally stated, at least here in Raleigh and Wake County, that they would remove the reinstated mask mandates when the positivity rate was below 5%. Before Omicron hit it was around 3.2%, and they were still waiting. It’s well above 5% right now. So, why is it fine now but not fine then? It couldn’t possibly be due to there being an election in 2022, where the mayor is up for re-election, right? Same in most other places in NC.

Speaking of masks, the Washington Post does their normal crazy

‘A very toxic environment’: Virginia students navigate ugly mask battle

Alexandra Swan, 17, believes it is wrong to make snap judgments about other people.

But these days, when the senior walks through the doors of her high school in Louisa County, Va., she finds it hard to follow her own rules. Whenever she sees another student — friend, foe or stranger — her eyes jump to the same place: their mouth and nose, which might or might not be covered by a mask, now that Louisa County Public Schools has complied with Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s (R) controversial order that made masking optional.

“I see these people just not wearing a mask, or wearing one pulled down, like, under their chin,” said Swan, “and my brain just immediately goes, ‘That person does not share the same ideals as me. We won’t get along.’ ” She added: “They may not be a bad person. They may just be thinking the same things as their parents.”

That’s a serious bit of mask crazy, mask cult. In just 2 years many of the kids have been taught that anyone failing to wearing their mask to the conformance of the kids is a Bad Person, and, if not them, their parents. That they can’t be friends with that person. That having different ideals is Full Stop for being able to be friendly.

School now feels, Swan said, “like a war zone”: a raging partisan battle that no one can opt out of, because every single student arrives with evidence of their politics — those without masks typically lean right, she said — written across their faces. Swan said she has stopped speaking with students who go maskless because they are dismissive of the decision to mask and unwilling to hear a different opinion.

Good grief, it’s a mask cult. They maskers have been taught that a mask is only meant to protect others, not themselves, hence, it’s a war if others refuse to wear the masks, which mostly offer barely any actual protection.

Swan said she cannot wait to graduate and escape to college, where she plans to major in musical theater.

“Before, when masks were all required, you didn’t — it wasn’t like you were making a statement,” she said. “This made everything so much worse.”

Who’s surprised that the uber-mask cultist is going to major in a discipline that will most likely give little monetary reward, and most likely be one of those screeching for the government to cancel her huge student loan debt?

    The news, HA! Good one!

    Pol Pot authoritarianism – genocide of 2 million opponents
    Stalin authoritarianism – mass executions, Gulag labor camps
    Nazi authoritarianism – death camps, genocide 6 million+
    Putin authoritarianism – poison, 10 story “falls”
    Chinese authoritarianism – “disappeared”
    N Korean authoritarianism – poisoned, blowed up, starved
    Saudi authoritarianism – prison, torture
    American authoritarianism – masks required in some restaurants and stores
    Turkish authoritarianism – torture, “disappeared”

    On the other hand, GOPhers are working to rig our Democracy, state legislature by state legislature

    • So, your position is that “American authoritarianism” is OK because we haven’t, at least not yet, set up internment camps for the unvaccinated?

      Have you forgotten how several state governors ordered churches closed and suspended the freedom of peaceable assembly, suspended our Constitutional rights? Have you forgotten how some people were put under house arrest, compete with an armed deputy, because they wouldn’t comply with orders? Have you forgotten how then-Governess Gina Raimondo (D-RI) had the State Police stop all cars with New York license plates to demand to know where they had been and where they were headed, and sent the National Guard door-to-door at beach resort homes to interrogate the people within? Have you forgotten how Governor Andy Beshear (D-KY) sent the state police to church parking lots, to record license plate and vehicle identification numbers of those who dared, dared! to violate his orders and go to church on Easter Sunday?

      You know that “Nazi authoritarianism – death camps, genocide 6 million+” you listed? Der Führer became Chancellor on January 30, 1933, but there were no death camps until 6½ years later, no mass extermination of Jews until after the war started and the Nazis could hide much of what they were doing.

        Seriously? You, davebot, BrandOn, puppydog et al do nothing but talk down to those of us that disagree with your notions. So knock it off with the whining. We give back what we get. You took to referring to me as dOwd because BrandOn did, but stopped suddenly… and you know why.

        We’re routinely called a warmist, nut, communist, rapist, incestuous pedophile, liar etc etc.

        What we try to supply is a counternarrative to right-wing talking points. If you want to present ‘facts’ for consideration by all means do so. We do ask that you support claims with evidence. But neither your opinions nor mine are sacrosanct.

          Your notions are shit, dumbass, as has been pointed out numerous times.

        My point is that authoritarianism is bad regardless. I believe in democracy, capitalism and America.

        My further point is my opinion that comparing America to North Korea, Stalin’s Russia, Nazi Germany, Xi’s China, Pol Pot’s Kampuchea is hyperbole.

        My further, further point is to question why conservative Republicans are not concerned about the anti-democratic (totalitarian?) movement in the nuGOP? Republican controlled states are passing hundreds of anti-democracy bills designed to reduce the influence of American voters who are likely to vote for Democrats. These laws are designed to reduce the votes of women (stand in line for 4 hours to vote with 3 kids in tow? good luck) and people of color etc. The Republican Party is the party of white men, who many in America consider to be ‘real’, ‘patriotic’ Americans. You’ve expressed that sentiment yourself, we hope in jest.

        So please spare us your faux fear of authoritarianism. It’s hyperbole.

        Can you list the 5 most concerning totalitarian effects you see in today’s America?

        Perhaps together we can solve those problems without the doomsday visions of Adolf Hitler and death camps.

    Teach: Africa never really had a big problem with COVID

    Why might that be?

    Africa: 62% under 25 yrs; 3% over 65 yrs (median age 19 yrs)
    US: 28% under 25 yrs; 18% over 65 yrs (median age 38 yrs)

    One in three deaths is captured by official registration systems
    Of the 54 African countries, only 18 countries record and report annual deaths
    Only 4 countries document the cause of death

    More sunlight!!

    Listen Dowd. You don’t know me. You have no idea who or what I am. All you see is a name on a comment. You don’t know if I’m even a man or woman. You don’t know if I’ve published 5 children’s books aimed at kids with learning disabilities or skydive as a hobby. You don’t know if I have a degree in economics or dropped out of high school. In fact there’s so much you don’t know that for you to sit there and talk down to me, or for that matter anyone else commenting here is ludicrous.

    Similarly, I know very little about you. I think someone said you’re either a pharmacist or involved in the manufacture of drugs some how. Either way you are not an expert on economics, Covid, the climate, EV’s, energy, politics, religion, or any other subject other than your chosen field of endeavor. You get your information like we do, by reading it. You may or may not be reading the correct information or you may or may not be drawing the correct conclusions from the information you read. We have no way of knowing until you start typing your nonsense.

    Once reliable facts are laid at your feet and you refuse even to acknowledge them you have closed your mind and left any believable reality. Case in point; the videos and affidavits about the voter fraud in the last election. You might not like it. You might not agree with it. But the fact remains the preliminary evidence would indicate to any reasonable man the need for investigation. Unless you’re afraid of the results. We are all sure if the tables were reversed (like in 2016) you would be screaming to high hell if we ignored you, called you names and even went so far as to shoot and arrest people protesting for your point of view. BTW, you’d also be screaming like a raped ape if we ever called any of your protestors “insurrectionists” even as they riot, burn and loot city after city because a black criminal was killed by a cop. Hell, you won’t even admit they were rioters. Your willing suspension of the truth is part of the underlying disease of leftism that renders you immune to logic, morality and compassion.

    I’m surprised that Let’s Go Brandon, drowningpuppies, dave7124, est1950 or any other reasonable person for that matter still responds to your insulting and malicious comments. I for one no longer will. In fact, if I see your name on the comment list when I click onto the site I will leave. I will not encourage your racism, anti Christian bigotry, anti American hate and general intellectual sloppiness by answering or participating in any way with your hateful, dehumanizing ignorance.

      None of us know each other here, do we?

      Be very careful about exposing personal info on the internet, especially where strangers threaten the safety of you and your family. I’ve learned that much.

      I wish they didn’t respond to me ever. Or ever address me by Dowd or whatever moniker they wish. Why do you respond?

      Of those you listed, only est1950 even borders on reason. The others are just trolls.

      Facts: There WERE rioters! Often violent, flame-throwing, dangerous rioters! But they were not part of the plot to overthrow the election. Jan 6 rioters were, whether they realized it or not.

      Q: Do you wish that VP Pence had sent the election back to the GOP-controlled states as trump proposed?

    We appreciate your in put and I would hate to see you turn away because of Jeff.
    Jeff is really one of the worse people I have come across and that is saying something. He is always here so not commenting because you see his crap everywhere let’s him win. It is the same as walking through a beautiful park and have to avoid the dog shit left by liberals.
