More than 2 weeks after the media predicted catastrophe due to Texas lifting its mask mandate and Joe Biden labeled the move “neanderthal thinking,” COVID cases in Texas have dropped to a record low while hospitalizations are at their lowest since October.

Oh.

Earlier this month, Texas governor Greg Abbott announced an end to mask mandates and a 100% re-opening of the state by March 10th.

The announcement was immediately met by a wave of hysteria from leftist politicians, commentators and the media, much of which has been compiled in this article by Jeffrey A. Tucker and included;

– Vanity Fair reporting the news under a headline which read ‘Republican Governors Celebrate COVID Anniversary With Bold Plan to Kill Another 500,000 Americans’.
– California Governor Gavin Newsom asserting that the decision was “absolutely reckless.”
– Dr. Fauci warning that, “It just is inexplicable why you would want to pull back now.”
– Virus expert Michael Osterholm telling CNN, “We’re walking into the mouth of the monster. We simply are.”
– Beto O’Rourke hyperventilating over the move being a “big mistake” and “a cult of death.”
– Author Kurt Eichenwald accusing Abbott of making a “murderous” decision.
– Joe Biden proclaiming the move to re-open Texas as a form of “neanderthal thinking.”

This represents just a drop in the ocean of similar reactions that spewed forth from every major media and public health orifice.

And they were all completely wrong.

As the Daily Mail documents, “On Saturday, Texas’ seven-day Covid positivity rate reached an all-time low of 5.27%, while hospitalisations fell to their lowest level since October, according to the latest state data.”

“The state recorded 2,292 new coronavirus cases, about 500 fewer on average from last week, and 107 new deaths.”

“The number of people hospitalised with coronavirus, meanwhile, dipped to 3,308.”

In other words, lifting the mask mandate and re-opening the state did not lead to the health catastrophe predicted by all the “experts,” in fact the opposite happened.

“No surge as schools open in the UK, no surge as Texas throws off restrictions, free states like Florida and Georgia doing no worse than lockdown states – is anyone in Government watching the real world or are they too busy gawping at the curves of Neil Ferguson’s latest model?” asks Michael Curzon.

Meanwhile, every single individual who got Texas completely wrong will just regurgitate the same talking points next time a state chooses to embrace freedom, wilfully ignorant that their hysteria has been proven wholly false time and time again.

Danish Health Minister Threatens to “Shut Down Society” if More People Don’t Get Vaccinated

Opposition calls announcement a “completely wild message.”

Published

The Danish health minister is threatening to “shut down society” if more people don’t get vaccinated after the country experienced a COVID spike despite over 75 per cent of the population being fully vaccinated.

As we highlighted on Monday, Denmark just suffered its worse COVID case load since May, while the virus reproduction (R number) also jumped to 2.01, which is the highest level since January.

Over 75 per cent of Denmark’s 5.8 million inhabitants have been fully vaccinated.

Despite the fact that 85 per cent of people over the age of 12 are vaccinated, Denmark has seen more than 1,000 daily cases of COVID for a week straight.

Now authorities are threatening to “shut down society,” according to opposition party health spokesman Martin Geertsen, if more Danes don’t take the shot.

“If we are to keep Denmark open, we must have more people get the vaccine,” said Health Minister Magnus Heunicke

Although Heunicke said the vaccine would remain voluntary, he ominously warned the unvaccinated that their refusal to get the jab “no longer works.”

Geertsen said the government was breaking its promise to eliminate lockdowns once a high proportion of the population had been vaccinated, adding that Heunicke was sending a “completely wild message.”

Last year, Danish authorities tried to pass a law that would have allowed the forced vaccination of anyone, with police being used to physically detain people and hold them down while being jabbed, but the effort was abandoned after mass protests.

Coronavirus

Unvaccinated People to be Banned From Berlin Christmas Markets

Option to provide negative COVID test removed.

Published

Unvaccinated people will be banned from visiting Berlin’s famous Christmas markets, with even the option of providing a negative COVID test likely to be removed.

Despite being located outdoors, officials have approved strict entry requirements for the festive events which will see those who haven’t received the jab turned away.

“Under a strict ‘2G’ model, those over the age of 12 must be double vaccinated or recovered from the virus and would be denied entry even if they have a negative Covid-19 test,” reports the Daily Mail.

Visitors to the markets must also wear face masks and observe social distancing despite the event being held in the open air.

Both the WeihnachtsZauber market at Gendarmenmarkt and the Weinachtsmarkt at Roten Rathaus have announced they will enforce the strictest policy, despite being given an option to be more lenient and allow attendees to provide a negative COVID test result.

The fact that the option to provide a negative test is being removed is utterly stupid given that vaccinated people can still transmit the virus.

It also illustrates how the real agenda has little to do with public health and everything to do with coercing mass compliance.

Despite the waning effectiveness of vaccines, governments across the world are imposing segregation on societies by weaponizing medical apartheid to institutionally discriminate against an oppressed minority (the unvaccinated).

As we previously highlighted, Austria is threatening to impose a new lockdown for the unvaccinated if occupation of ICU beds rises to a certain level.

Dubious YouGov Poll Says Vast Majority of Brits Support COVID Restrictions

Reality begs to differ.

Published

on

Another dubious YouGov poll has found that the vast majority of Brits support the reintroduction of COVID restrictions such as mask mandates, despite little evidence of that being practiced in the real world.

With lockdown fetishists attempting to pressure the government into reversing so-called “freedom day,” when mask mandates and other restrictions were lifted, a new survey was released claiming that the idea had widespread support from the British public.

According to the poll, 81 per cent support mandatory masks on public transport, while 76 per cent support the same rule in shops. 67 per cent want mandatory social distancing in pubs and restaurants.

“More nonsense, no ones doing any of this NOW,” pointed out Adam Brooks. “I suggest these are either manipulated polls or are just people who do not go out.”

Indeed, a previous poll by YouGov claimed only 60% were still wearing face masks in public.

That figure is also likely inflated by those who want to give the ‘responsible’ answer, no matter whether they actually wear masks or not.

In reality, anyone who lives in major cities like London (as I do) can tell you that even with the sustained fearmongering of the media, a small minority are wearing masks outside while inside shops the figure is roughly 50 per cent. Inside pubs, it’s barely 10 per cent.

Social distancing inside pubs is also virtually non-existent at this point.

As Maajid Nawaz points out, YouGov poll results about COVID-19 have long been held in suspicion given that its founder is former UK vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi MP.

The firm’s major shareholder is Blackrock, a transnational investment firm which The New Republic wrote “was having a very good pandemic” by casting “itself as socially responsible.”

Last year, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink said that Americans should wear face masks if they wished to see an economic recovery.

Others questioned the reliability of the poll given its small sample size and the firm’s refusal to detail its participant selection criteria.

“Percentage of people who believe Yougov polls: 0%,” joked another respondent.

As with most such polls, the respondents are always heavily skewed towards older people with home phones who are more likely to support lockdown measures.

As we previously highlighted, the hysteria being peddled by the media and health technocrats to coerce the public into supporting the reintroduction of COVID restrictions deliberately omits the fact that the recent ‘spike’ in COVID cases was driven by the mass testing of schoolchildren.

Over the last week, cases have already begun to drop as the fearmongering alarmists are proven wrong yet again.
