In theory, there’s a right way to handle a pandemic. With enough information, you could establish the best policy that would save the most lives. Instead, our multi-racial country is plagued by double-standards, anarcho-tyranny, and hypocrisy.

The President blames unvaccinated people for the continuing pandemic. “Their refusal has cost all of us,” he said. Earlier this month, he scolded the country: “Our patience is wearing thin, and your refusal has cost all of us.”

Major figures and media have criticized unvaccinated people and proposed penalties:

  • “[T]he time for analyzing why these human petri dishes have chosen to ignore the medical science that could save them, and us, is over. We need a different strategy. I propose shunning.” – Michael Stern, USA Today, April 30, 2021
  • “[I]t’s time to stop being diffident and call out destructive behavior for what it is. Doing so may make some people feel they’re being looked down on. But you know what? Your feelings don’t give you the right to ruin other people’s lives.” – “The Quiet Rage of the Responsible,” Paul Krugman, the New York Times, August 19, 2021
  • The Unvaccinated Should Pay More For Health Insurance,” Rich Barlow, WBUR, August 24, 2021
  • “Dr. Fauci said if hospitals get any more overcrowded they’re going to have to make some very tough choices about who gets an ICU bed. That choice doesn’t seem so tough to me. ‘Vaccinated person having a heart attack? Yes, come right in, we’ll take care of you. Unvaccinated guy who gobbled horse goo? Rest in peace, wheezy.’” – Jimmy Kimmel, September 7
  • Stop the malarkey, Biden: Ban the unvaccinated from airplanes already,” Amanda Marcotte, Salon, September 16, 2021

Miss Marcotte said the reason the Biden Administration hasn’t imposed a vaccine mandate for air travel is because “they’re worried about some redhat yahoos clogging up the airport with public tantrums about being turned away from the TSA.” There have been some public tantrums at airports, but not from redhat yahoos.

This was without a vaccine requirement for air travel. The recent unpleasantness at a New York City restaurant with a vaccine mandate gives us a preview of what would happen if the Biden Administration followed Miss Marcotte’s advice. Black Lives Matter activists in New York already say “vaccine passports” are “racist.” They certainly have a “disparate impact,” which is enough to make them racist.

Blacks are simply less likely to get vaccinated. The overall racial pattern is the one you see for SAT and IQ scores.

There’s media confusion about why. FiveThirtyEight reports that there aren’t enough “vaccine hubs” in black communities. WebMD, noting a finding that 35 percent of blacks don’t plan to get vaccinated, blames “mistrust” in the medical system going back to the Tuskegee experiment. Even Saturday Night Live made a joke about blacks not wanting the vaccine.

The Washington Post said “Trump and his allies have promoted skepticism of the vaccines by elevating claims that encouragement to get a shot conflicts with individual freedoms.” President Trump did encourage his supporters to get vaccinated (and was booed.) Opposing mandates, masks, or other policies supposedly meant to protect us from COVID-19 is not the same thing as opposing vaccination. More importantly, most blacks don’t take cues from Donald Trump.

Vaccine hesitancy is just part of the problem for blacks. The CDC reports that obesity increases the risk of serious illness from COVID-19. This is true even for young adults. Having diabetes type 1 or 2 also correlates with more severe illness.

The CDC reported in July 2021 that blacks have the highest age-adjusted obesity rate (49.6 percent). Hispanics are second, with 44.8 percent. Whites aren’t far behind at 42.2 percent, but at 17.4 percent, few Asians are obese.

Interestingly, for black men, the obesity rate is higher in the highest income group (42.7 percent) than in the lowest (33.8 percent). There is “no difference in obesity prevalence by income” for black women.

The obesity rate among black men and white men is about the same, but there is almost a 20 percent difference between black women and white women. The Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health reports that 56 percent of black women surveyed between 2013–2016 were obese.

The pattern for diabetes is slightly different. The American Diabetes Association reports that 14.7 percent of American Indians/Alaskan Natives have diabetes, followed by 12.5 percent of Hispanics, 11.7 percent of blacks, 9.2 percent of Asians, and 7.5 percent of whites.

A study from 2019 found that a cross-section of adults taken from 2011–2016 shows that the age-and-sex-adjusted rate of diabetes was 22.1 percent for Hispanics, 20.4 percent for blacks, 19.1 percent for Asians, and 12.1 percent for whites.

Today, there is probably more obesity and diabetes. The American Psychological Association reported that 42 percent of American adults had “undesired weight gain” during the pandemic. Obesity in children jumped sharply.

Death rates for different racial groups due to COVID-19 fit these health patterns. Among those aged 40 to 64 years old: One in 240 American Indians died from COVID-19, one in 390 Hispanics, one in 480 blacks, and a near identical 1 in 1,300 people for whites and Asians.

The Lancet reported that “racial/ethnic minority groups were more likely than White patients to have their initial COVID-19-related healthcare encounter in a hospital setting and to require subsequent hospitalization after adjusting for demographic and clinical characteristics.” This could be because non-whites are less likely to see a doctor when they start getting sick, which might reflect differences in time preferences across groups.

The most recent data from the CDC compares other races to whites. Asians were 30 percent less likely to get COVID-19 (probably due to higher vaccination rates), while American Indians, blacks, and Hispanics were significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die.

Government and media blame the system:

  • “Long-standing systemic health and social inequalities have put various groups of people at increased risk of getting sick and dying from COVID-19, including many racial and ethnic minority groups and people with disabilities,” CDC
  • “Structural racial discrimination exacerbates inequality in access to health care and treatment, leading to racial disparities in health outcomes and increased mortality and morbidity for people of African descent,” United Nations
  • “’Racial Inequality May Be As Deadly As COVID-19,’ Analysis Finds,” NPR, August 27, 2020

These articles are very different from the tone used to report on white conservatives who die from the disease, because, it is implied, of their own foolishness.

When ABC reported on blacks and Hispanics who didn’t want to be vaccinated, it proposed they be called “vaccine deliberate” — implying prudence and caution — rather than “vaccine hesitant.”

There have been myriad efforts to explain the racial and ethnic vaccine rate disparity. Misinformation online has been blamed. Throughout the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, many were exposed to misleading health information, including hoaxes about the COVID-19 vaccines, some specifically targeted at Blacks and Latinos. Other experts identify structural barriers to vaccines, including health literacy, vaccine safety concerns, and physical access as contributing factors. Distrust of the medical system and government was also cited as an underlying source of vaccine disparity.

Instead of “vaccine hesitant,” a more accurate term explaining lagging vaccine rates in communities of color is “vaccine deliberate” — waiting and seeing if concerns about the vaccine can be mitigated, according to a report from First Draft — an organization focused on combating online misinformation — though arguably, some may see little difference between the two phrases.

It’s hard to take progressives’ jabber about solidarity and civic duty seriously when they mock conservatives who die, but treat blacks and Hispanics as victims. If the United States really wanted to improve public health, there would be a national effort to fight obesity, ban processed food, and control other factors turning Americans into “waddling colossi.” Finally, if ABC thinks it’s reasonable for blacks to be “vaccine deliberate,” white conservatives should be forgiven for being “deliberate” with institutions that they have good reason to distrust.

When this pandemic is over (if it ever is), more non-whites per capita will have died than whites. The reason isn’t “systemic inequality.” It’s because of the same things that produce consistent outcomes in education, income, and crime also affect health. The refusal to deal with this hurts all Americans, but especially blacks and Hispanics.

Our rulers appear either not to know or not to care. It may be that health rules will be forced on whites while non-whites are quietly left alone. Will the system really impose mandates equally if Black Lives Matter protests?

Then, when (or if) the pandemic is over, it will still be whites’ fault for not doing enough to save non-whites from themselves.

  1. I mostly agree with you. Blacks and Hispanics are more likely to go unvaccinated and die of the virus than whites, but whites get all the obloquy. True. Inarguable. And obviously part of the strategy.

    But did you notice. Just an offhand thing I noticed. This cherry picking of white anti-vaxxer virus deaths sounds just like the conservative cherry picking of black horror stories you can read right cheer on this syeer organ, yas you weell.

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/analysis-thousands-more-usual-dying-170117640.html

    Data from Public Health England (PHE) shows that during that period there were 2,103 extra death registrations with ischemic heart disease, 1,552 with heart failure, as well as an extra 760 deaths with cerebrovascular diseases such as stroke and aneurysm and 3,915 with other circulatory diseases.

    Acute and chronic respiratory infections were also up with 3,416 more mentions on death certificates than expected since the start of July, while there have been 1,234 extra urinary system disease deaths, 324 with cirrhosis and liver disease and 1,905 with diabetes.

  3. Our rulers appear either not to know or not to care.

    Trust the plan.

    If our lords and masters were serious about public health, they wouldn’t have locked everyone down, limited access to gyms and recreation, and forced people to constantly use and misuse cloth face coverings in ways that make them vectors for bacterial pneumonia more damgerous to the wearer than the virus they pretend the masks will filter out.

    Those who aren’t weakened or killed by the flawed Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions will be mopped up by the Killer Jabs.

  4. Will someone please make some attempt to encourage Yank journalists to stop trying to pretend they’re numerate?

    I realise that it would probably be a fool’s errand – ‘journalist’ now means ‘clickbait-generator’ – but it’s getting tiresome and making the Yankosphere look absolutely ridiculous.

    Exhibit 1: Anne Coulter.

    I’ve always thought Coulter was an idiot, but then she exceeds my expectations to the downside…

    Since COVID landed on our shores, 95% of the dead people in the U.S. have been 50 or older. Nearly 80% of the dead were 65 or older — and not only are they heavily vaccinated, but they make up only 16% of the population. The 64.5% of the population under age 50 — in its entirety — has a 5% chance of dying from COVID.

    Read the bold text again, and run a mental ruler over what it means.

    People under 50 have a less-than-1% chance of dying, full-stop; in fact it’s more like 0.05% per year – that is, 5 one-hundredths of one percent. Note also that a lot of that probability is neonatal deaths, because the US still has an infant mortality problem.

    Now if people under 50 had a 5% chance of dying from any single cause in any single year, that cause would genuinely be something to worry about.

    But they don’t – because Ann Coulter cannot do very basic conditional probability.

    Why didn’t Coulter – who fancies herself as smart enough to make declarative public statements about things – do some quick mental arithmetic and work out that the 5% ‘risk’ is monumentally stupid?

    It’s really easy to do: there are about 212 million Americans under 50.

    5% of 212 million is a little over 10 million. That’s a big number, and should have made her go back and check her working.

    So ‘5% COVID mortality risk for under 50s‘ is an exceedingly stupid estimate.

    Actual under-50 deaths-with COVID19 (assuming arguendo that there is no false-positive problem with RT-qPCR, and that all deaths are coded accurately): 37,773 as of September 22 2021.

    Excess deaths for under-50s (adding ED for 2020 and 2021 together) relative to the average over the last 5 years: 38,293 over 18 months (~20k/yr). Not chicken-feed, but not worse than other bad ‘flu years.

    Contrast that with the ~128k excess deaths in over-75s in 2020 (on a base of ~785K ‘normal’, which is about a 4% risk of death in a given year for the 22 million aged-Americans).

    Data source: The CDC’s AH Excess Deaths by Sex Age and Race. Download it yourself and filter by All Races, All Genders, filter by ages… it gives it to you by week.

    Eventually I’ll find longer-term data on US deaths: I already know that for the UK, neither 2020 nor 2021 (to date) is in the top 5 deathiest years for which we have data.

    For this, people are permitting their children to be lab-rats, on the say-so of the most untrustworthy actors (Big Pharma and politicians) and their minions.

    Anyone who trusts Pfizer and the CDC deserves everything that happens to them.

    Coulter needs to be held to account. It’s no wonder that a plurality of imbeciles think that their own unconditional risk of hospitalisation with the coof is in the range of 50%.

    These definitely sound like the expected spike protein damage as laid out by the Salk Institute and others. But the Yahoo article didn’t seem to make this connection. Or did I miss it?

    Are we seeing the same excess deaths elsewhere? If so, this could serve the vaccine wary well to call attention to this.

  6. meamjojo says:

    “Black Lives Matter activists in New York already say “vaccine passports” are “racist.” They certainly have a “disparate impact,” which is enough to make them racist.”

    Vaccine mandates/passports are foolish when the fully vaccinated themselves are getting sick with breakthrough Covid infections. And even when not physically sick, they can act as virus vectors to infect others if they happened to become infected with Covid because the vaccines are leaky and don’t kill off the virus. Live virus stays in their throats and nose areas and can be transmitted to others..

    We know that the Covid mRNA/DNA vaccines don’t confer immunity from infection. This is what the CDC and numerous health officials have told us. All Covid vaccines do is reduce the chances that you might get seriously sick and have to go to the hospital. Further, they are variant specific because each shot is”tuned” to a specific spike protein configration, which is why regular booster shots will be needed.

    So what does a vaccine mandate or showing a passport actually bring to the table if real immunity from infection is off the table? It’s certainly not a safety guarantee for others that many think it is!

    Then there is the issue that with waning vaccine “protection” for many and boosters coming up for some, but not all, what constitutes a valid vaccination card now? Is the single shot J&J vaccine accepted? Want to bet that some IQ deficient door guard will say that they need to see 2 shots listed on a card, leading to a fight? What if you are eligible for a booster shot but choose not to take it and/or don’t get it? Is your card still good? (apparently yes I read recently, which makes no sense if the goal is protection of others through supposed immunity) Are wait staff supposed to know the gory details of vaccines in order to act as effective police?

    The truth is that vaccine mandates aren’t put in place to make people safer, they are put in place to force compliance with the dictates of TPTB.

    Tying into the quote at the top of this post, people might also ponder the more dangerous reality that active segregation based on vaccine status is a policy of social segregation, little different from the formal racial segregation the USA supported up through the 1960’s. However, instead of skin color, it is a personal medical choice that is being used to implement segregation. Why doesn’t anyone see this?

    Remember when the jabs started for the elderly and immediately they began dying like flies and how jab lovers then yammered on about how they must all have become overconfident and taken risks before immunity kicked in?

    Remember the great ventilator shortage and the frantic calls to produce a bazillion of ’em and how the hubbub suddenly ended?

    Of course, it was the jabs killing the newly inoculated and being put on a ventilator was the coup de grace in the calculated maltreatment regimen. “Hey Guido, what’s Mr. Corlione want me to do with this one?”… “Da boss says ta ventilate ’em!”

    The Norwegians early on tested ten dead, jabbed elderly and determined all ten died by the jab. German researchers very recently found the jab responsible for most of the dead, jabbed people they scrutinized.

    A local story that’s being widely pushed says Washington State Patrolman Eric Gunderson just died from covid. They’re pushing this story-line because Gov. Inslee’s past decree mandating the jab emphasized that it includes the State Patrol. RIP, murder victim Gunderson, may your killer face justice.

    Propaganda is the realm of the half-truth.

  9. Covid is truly clever. It knows the difference between races. It won’t target congressslobs (jab optional for them) or celebrities at parties. It will target American schoolchildren but not rapefugees’ children and child brides. Most amazingly, covid knows one’s national status. Border guards are forced to take the jab but not haitian invaders arriving from their clean, orderly country (as all non-White and non-Asian countries are.)

    Now Life is normally quite placid. Even though Life lives on by consuming itself; the feasting is benign, as it is with all Life’s wards; with one notable exception. You.  And the rest of the human race. We are Life consuming gluttons extraordinaire. Think Gettysburg, Dachau, Hiroshima and …factory farming: ad nausea.This is not new, of course. Our behavior is old news. Life has cut slack to humans because we have a uniqueness that has warranted observation over time. Time may have just run out. 

    Humans now have the ability to destroy the biosphere. Our pernicious conduct may have convinced Life that without its prompt.interjection; it is inevitable.
    Enter Mr.Covid 19. Force Majeure of modern plagues. Sponsor of the blame game to end all blame games. Seven billion people have an opinion…and an asshole. The ones who have a microphone or a computer demonstrate both, daily. Think Life has a hand in all this? Maybe the plague is a worldwide distraction to give the Biosphere a little breathing room to heal from ongoing human assault? Hmmm.

    Millions are dead. Millions are becoming infected every day. The virus twists and turns and presents a new face constantly. We rush to keep up but seemingly always lag behind. How so? Is it out of our hands?

    This is totally random on one level of course but bear with me. They can’t just say that black people are the main problem with covid, and have been the problem with many communicable diseases. The press just won’t go there the law won’t go there. We see it in other fields of enquiry.

    I was just looking through Jacob Leon Rubinstein’s polygraph test with the FBI, Warren Commission. At no point do the question arise like “are you a member of Israel’s intelligence services?” Or “was you Jewish identity part of your decision to kill Oswald?” Or various questions to tease out something of his identity and his decisions. They just asked him if he was a “communist” in various ways. The obvious question was never sparked at all. The interviewers sensed not to go there. Here’s the polygraph report:

    I feel like Diogenes looking for a single honest anti-vaxxer; seriously, I can’t remember the last one I came across with specific claims that weren’t a lie. Your citation does not support your claim of vaccine caused deaths, for which the timing is all wrong anyway, they started in July. And it includes some hard claims for what is causing problems, such as:

    ‘It feels like winter already’

    “Last winter, there was almost no RSV (Respiratory syncytial virus), and paediatric intensive care was pretty much empty and could help us out. Now they are absolutely teeming as are our emergency departments with adults and children with RSV infection.

    “It feels like winter is already here, rather than it is coming. It’s worse this year than I think I remember at any point in the last 20 years.”

    Which of course is consistent with a more vaccinated population getting out and about and being able to transmit other viruses.

    Do you think lying helps your cause? Or are you being forced to resort to it because we vaxxed are not dropping like flies as you confidently predicted months ago?

    According to the law you can be both jabbed and unvaccinated. After your first jab you are not vaccinated should you die. After the second you are not vaccinated. Only two weeks after you have the second jab are you legally vaccinated. That’s a 35 day black hole in which statisticians can call you an antivaxxer/unvaccinated and uncooperative.

    There’s a 35 day window from first jab to second jab to two weeks after in which you can have been jabbed but are not deemed vaccinated. It’s like Shrodinger’s Cat, it’s only vaccinated if it survives 35 days after being boxed. That’s the subtle trick the pharma people played. Jolly clever stuff.

    “Law,” “legally?” You’re talking about conventions for how long it takes for the adaptive immune system to reach a level the epidemiologists find useful for … drum roll please, dashboards tracking vaccination progress and the like, for what they say is “fully vaccinated,” not “vaccinated” without qualification. See here at the CDC for example, the columns are labeled “People Vaccinated” for categories like total number of people in a cohort and percentage of the total population, followed by the data of “At Least One Dose” and “Fully Vaccinated.”

    If you read the papers and such they write that go into more detail, you’ll learn what you should have realized from how long it takes you to start to throw off any virus that infects you, from what I’ve read and experienced a minimum of eight days for that or the first jab of a vaccine, but the usual metric is two weeks. It’s well recognized that gives you a substantial degree of protection, but not the initial full potential of a two dose vaccine like the mRNA ones. To keep things simple when we have the one jab version of Janssen as an option, and Moderna’s Phase III clinical trial cutoff was two weeks, Pfizer/BioNTech’s was one week, they simply say “Fully Vaccinated” two weeks after the last dose.

    Although based on memory B cell research it might actually be around three weeks, I’ve got to read that Rockefeller University followup paper on how long vaccines vs. the virus prompt those memory cells to improve the fleets of antibodies they’ll produce if the body gets challenged again. And there you have one theoretical basis for what are being called “booster” shots, really second boost after prime then first boost for the two dose ones.

  21. @That Would Be Telling

    The authors of that news article are just speculating as to the cause of these thousands of excess non-COVID deaths, but know they aren’t allowed to speculate these were caused by anti-body booster shots (aka “vaccines” in our media). They probably don’t know that dozens of experts have warned about the potential danger of blood clots causing heart problems and cerebral vein thrombosis in millions of people receiving experimental gene-based injections. Each jab leaves microscopic residue in the bloodstream that cannot escaped, and each jab adds more. This is the primary reason why the experts at the FDA and CDC recently voted down proposals to allow booster vaccines for the healthy, despite intense pressure from Big Pharma and their paid spokesmen in the Biden administration.

  22. KenH says:

    We’re now at the stage where whites are scapegoated for everything that goes wrong in this nation and in the lives of non-whites. When shabbos goy Biden rails against the unvaccinated it conjures up images of white people in red MAGA hats to those living in loony lefty land.

    But in reality blacks and Hispanics are most likely to be vaccine resistant. The former for conspiratorial reasons far more outlandish than anything voiced by white conservatives. Most Hispanics are just apathetic about many things and COVID and vaccines are one of them.

    In the work of Alex Berenson he noted that some nursing homes saw COVID infection rates increase after residents got their first shot leading to speculation that the first shot of an mRNA vaccine temporarily suppresses the immune system until you receive your second shot.

    Berenson also related the case of Marek’s disease in chickens. Marek’s disease used to just make infected chickens sick but once farms employed mass vaccination it evolved into a deadly hot strain that now kills unvaccinated chickens almost instantly. This doesn’t necessarily mean they same thing will happen to humans with COVID but there are concerns that COVID could mutate into a vaccine resistant super strain.

    Also, COVID vaccines are ‘leaky” in that a recipient can still become infected and transmit the virus. I also don’t think people want to get Fauci booster shots every 6-9 months until the end of their lives.

    I haven’t been sick in at least 5 years. NADA. Not even a sore throat or the common cold. No vaccine here and no mask here at all. The gym I workout in provides spray bottles for the equipment. Probably about 30% of the people there are Beaners, and at least half are carrying extra poundage. Still not even a slight cough or sore throat from my old 60 year old non-vaccinated ass. Secret? Vitamin D from sunshine when possible and milk, vitamin C from citrus fruits and veggies like broccoli, turnip and collard greens, spinach, sweet and white potatoes and maintaining a somewhat healthy weight and exercising at least 4-5 times a week, aerobic and anaerobic exercise.

    Black females have to be the most obese demographic in America followed by Hispanic males and then Hispanic females, next would be White males. I see more overweight White males than Black males. Beaners are like Italians, once they get a little age on them, their diets are the main cause of ballooning up. All that arroz y frijoles and Cubano bread, mane. Ever been to a Cuban restaurant? The portions are not skimpy. Get an order of arroz con pollo y frijoles negra and then they will ask if you want some arroz amarillo on the side despite the black beans being on white rice. Not to mention a large supply of buttered Cuban bread. And Mexicans with all those beans and rice and tortillas, damn pure starch. Great comfort food though. Blacks are like White Southerners, lots of fried food. And of course Southerners drive everywhere unlike in the Northern big cities like New York where people do a great deal of walking.

    Even as a crusty old fart, I have a better shot at hitting the 545 million dollar Powerball than dying of (((covid.))) I fear (((covid))) about as much as I fear the boogeyman.

  24. Why do the vaccinated and the unvaxxed both die of what is being called coronavirus? Both are “infected” with the social virus of their social class beliefs that the virus does or does not exist. But the deaths are real. The germ theory of Big Pharma and CDC does not adequately explain these deaths because nations that have not masked or locked down have much lower death rates. What is a more coherent explanation?

    The apparently incoherency in the established and counter explanations of the virus can better be explained by Respiratory Syncytial (Clotting) Virus (RSV), which has been around since 1884, and came from a monkey not a lab. It has identical symptoms to C-19 and tests cannot distinguish any difference. Big Pharma was processing a patent for a vaccine for RSV in 2018 before it morphed into C-19.

    What was the prophylaxis for RSV before Big Pharma’s Germ Theory in the 1930’s? Potassium Chloride, a hydrating salt, along with hydration, sunlight, fresh air, allowing fever to burn off the virus, etc. It worked because 100% of those during the Spanish Flu that went to sanitariums for sunlight and water survived but those who were vaccinated and went to hospitals had very high death rates.

    Masks dehydrate, Air conditioned buildings like nursing homes dehydrate. Those with diabetes and cancer are already dehydrated. The elderly are predisposed because they are not hydrated enough, lack proper body salts, do not ingest enough oil to retain water, and do not get sunlight. Those who catch the virus have diarrhea that dehydrates the body. Look it up, graphene dehydrates the human body. Ivermectin dehydrates if taken in an overdose. Today we call this “sick building syndrome”.

    100 people go to a church for 2 hours to hear a sermon by a preacher in an air conditioned building and are required to wear masks. Afterward there is an outbreak of so-called virus attributed to it being contagious. But the cause was likely environmental and the disease not contagious at all. It was dehydration that selectively hit the most vulnerable who attended the religious service, But public health authorities swoop in and declare an outbreak and shut down the church. The preacher later dies.

    There was no contagion because the human body is swimming with billions of germs and viruses. They become a disease when we are dehydrated and the body tries to eliminate it or burn it off by fever. There need not be any contagion to set off an epidemic, only hot weather cycle, internal vulnerabilities due to diabetes, cancer, etc., and environmental conditions of Sick Building Syndrome.

    In 1918 Big Pharma attributed the Spanish Flu from Spain because Spain was portrayed as a backward, superstitious Catholic nation that did not believe in vaccines. Likewise, the Wuhan Lab Leak Theory of C-19 is a plausible diversion by attributing its origin from a lab leak in evil Communist China.

    The dehydration, environmental theory of explanation proffered herein above is more coherent explanation of why the vaxxed and unvaxxed alike die. It means that masks and lockdowns kill.

    Then the insane insistence, backed by glaring falsehoods, that everyone get the vax comes from the need for the all-powerful and all-knowing ruling doctors to insure that no one will recognize how wrong they’ve been about all of this. In time, this will break apart the vast complexity that is the publicly funded American system of health “care”.

    An understanding is emerging that the best health care we can get is our own self-control and hygiene.

    “Our patience is wearing thin…” And yet this flunkie is letting in every Brown and Black invader with God only knows what sort of diseases at our Southern border. How many Brown and Black invaders have been vaccinated? How many Haitians have HIV or MRSA? How about tuberculosis from these turd world invaders. You never hear that much about HIV/AIDS but Haiti and Africa were like incubators for this disease back in the day. Already an Afghan invader has attacked a woman if I am not mistaken.

    Funny how these people so worried about the health of Americans and the Jew Flu don’t seem to care how many infected and/or diseased invaders they LET IN to our nation. And last time I checked a woman being attacked or raped isn’t that good for the physical or mental health of the victim.

    Honest Joe, perhaps the biggest lying sack of dookie on the planet.

  29. As with Steve Sailer, Mr. Hood would do well to avoid the vaccine issue altogether if he’s going to offer ice-cold takes like this one.

    Both of these writers are excellent when it comes to race and HBD, but they magically transform into blue-pilled normies when the topic involves anything Covid-related.

    The idea that European Americans (or anyone else) benefit from being guinea pigs in a biomedical experiment overseen and promoted by a bunch of Jews (Bourla, Walensky, Gottlieb, etc., etc.) is so absurd that I can’t believe there are intelligent people who take it seriously.

    In the work of Alex Berenson he noted that some nursing homes saw COVID infection rates increase after residents got their first shot leading to speculation that the first shot of an mRNA vaccine temporarily suppresses the immune system until you receive your second shot.

    As or more likely is that people don’t grok there’s a significant delay after the first shot before it elicits any adaptive immune immune system response and relax their non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs like social distancing) before it has any possibility of helping. Starting with world leading Israel we’ve seen this pattern of cases going up just after a vaccine campaign starts, and there’s no lack of anecdotes like some idiot US woman who threw a party five days after her first dose. Israel’s head start also did not follow through after a while, it’s got populations that are resistant to getting vaccinated and adhering to NPIs like the Haredi and Arabs.

    From reading and personal experience this takes an absolute minimum of eight days, and fourteen is the normal metric used to be reasonably sure. Compare to when you start turning a corner in a viral infection, although there are plenty of potentially confounding factors including your innate immune system which does no learning but can for example recognize and zap stressed, hopefully virus hijacked cells.

    Berenson also related the case of Marek’s disease in chickens….

    Also, COVID vaccines are ‘leaky” in that a recipient can still become infected and transmit the virus. I also don’t think people want to get Fauci booster shots every 6-9 months until the end of their lives.

    This is a widely held, but at least honestly in some cases error. By that definition there are no “sterilizing vaccines, because N% efficacy means 100-N% failure. Leaky means does not prevent animal from getting infected, just prevents animal from suffering the bad effects of the disease.

    Polio is my goto example of this, it’s an fecal-oral route disease that infects people’s guts and gets pathogenic in cases where the virus moves outside of the gut. The first Salk type injected inactivated whole virus vaccine stops the latter pathogenesis, but doesn’t prevent the gut infection or excreting viable viruses which can infect others. The Sabin oral attenuated live virus vaccine is directly administered to the gut and “sterilizes” it, very very few (100-N%) people who get it will ever contract polio in any way. Even better, it can provide “contact vaccination,” don’t get everyone in a neighborhood, the excreted attenuated live virus might infect and protect them.

    There are various details which determine when you should use each vaccine I’ll be happy to explain further, but this shows what real leaky vs. sterilizing vaccines are. For COVID and good vaccines against it, prevention of infection does not drop even close to zero against the Delta variant with its increased transmissibility and multiple immune escape mutations. Exactly what does and will happen, all efficacy endpoints dropping and more infections etc. in the context of concerns like the Marek’s disease phenomena remains to be seen, although as of yet there’s been no Greek lettered variant that came from a vaccinated individual as seen from the timing and locations of their discoveries, for example October 2020 for Alpha and Delta (this will of course change).

    But you can’t draw a direct analogy without assigning no agency to scientists and on up, predicting they can’t make better or better targeted against the spike protein vaccines especially as we “have not yet begun to fight.” The first generation vaccine were all done based on decades of research into vaccine platforms, safe SARS type coronavirus vaccines (that line of research goes back to a deadly crude late 1960’s RSV vaccine), and the raw information of the genetic sequence of the virus first released outside of the PRC on January 10th, at the time a “come as you are war.” Just as we expect the virus has more tricks up its sleeve, so do we. One obvious one is to target additional proteins, something Indian Bharat Biotech’s inactivated whole virus vaccine does in animal testing.

    The definition of leaky is as I described it at least per this article:
    https://www.healthline.com/health-news/leaky-vaccines-can-produce-stronger-versions-of-viruses-072715#What-We-Learned-from-Chickens

    A “perfect” or “sterilizing” vaccine offers complete protection against viral infection as in the case of the polio and smallpox vaccines. Those viruses also only infect humans whereas COVID infects a wide range of animals including dogs and cats. So unless we exterminate all the animal hosts COVID is here to stay in some form.

    The researcher also describes how leaky vaccines can lead to more virulent strains of the virus since they don’t kill their vaccinated hosts who can then transmit the hotter strain(s) to others.

    The COVID vaccines seem to act more like a flu shot that mostly offers protection against severe symptoms but only for a short window of time, usually months and not years.

    What aware adult would use this ‘Build Back Better’ hive wash? I’m starting to think that all of these people repeating the same stupid Newspeak phrases are simply the cosmic simulation rig running out of drive space, so they warp NPCs into all repeating the same drivel—easier for data compression.

    ‘Vaccine hesitancy’ is like a sharkskin-suited used car salesman trying to mindscrew you into his version of your reality. “No, it’s not like you aren’t going to someday put this filth into your arm; we know that. You’re just a teeny weeny bit scawwed and hesitant. We understand.”

    Like we’re all children. It’s why they say, “Get your vaccine.” Like there’s already a vile vial with your name on it. Every tenth second one of the sickening weasels is using these simian tactics. Same with ‘jab’ and all the other soccer-mom bull the average bot speaks now with such enthusiasm and insider taint. “Mask up!”

    Gotta fuel up the jet and get away from you jew monkeys. I’m not vaccine hesitant. I’m pharma never. N-E-V-E-R. I can’t get ‘my’ vaccine, because there’s no ‘vaccine’ of mine in existence. Doesn’t exist. Won’t.

Los Angeles County is also stuck with a “fake” Dr. directing the issues on how covid 19 must be addressed. She makes a half million dollars a year. When they brought her to Los Angeles from Massachusetts, I looked up her credentials. They involved what amounts to social engineering and far leftist B..S. She is still in office, despite her empty credentials. Los Angeles County residents are as stupid as it gets. She should be prosecuted for misrepresenting herself and so should the morons who brought her to Los Angeles, a model for how a city should NOT be run.
