Each morning I read the Google New Page to see what narratives are being pushed. This morning’s page was scary.

There was this article: “Omicron Triggers ‘Unprecedented’ COVID Surge Hitting Children Under Age 5 in South Africa.”

While it is conceivable that this is true, it is far more likely that this is propaganda meant to scare parents into submitting their very young children to mRNA injections. The Google News Page had two articles with similar titles. Draw your own conclusions, but seeing two such articles front and center gave me the chills.

There were other articles whose intent seemed to be intended to generate support for war with Russia.

Very scary stuff.

Update: I did a search of a few South African newspapers. I found no factual support for “Daily Beast” article in the link in my first post on this thread.

In the South African papers that I looked at there was no mention of Omicron at all, with exception of one article on how it affects tourism.

Yes, Mike.  I approached the Daily Beast article with the same suspicion.  It’s (yawn) just crying Wolf at this point.

So over it.  How about the rest of you?

    Very good catch Mike!

As we know well from past experience, when these new memes come out we can always expect them to be doubled down on, tripled down on, etc., etc.

Omicron is serving multiple purposes in the continued propagation of the fear narrative, as well as a means to sustain that narrative in the face of obvious failures that could otherwise serve to wake up the masses to the lies;

–  Push shots for kids as per Mike’s original post here

–  Push the need for reformulated boosters based on admission that the original shots don’t cover the newest escape mutations

–  Keep the pandemic in the headlines in general so that TPTB can use the Omicron infection wave, however it does turn out, to their advantage.

There is still a lot we don’t know.  Is SA gaming the data somehow to make this look really scary from a case standpoint, or is this thing just that catchy?  A worst case scenario would have this variant reinfecting both vaccinated, and even some with natural immunity due to its differences with earlier strains (think original antigenic sin, or first coming of Marek’s) … even if the CFR wasn’t terribly high, as we have discussed, the pharma fascists will have a field day using the data to keep their authoritarian schemes, spear-tipped with vaccines and vaccine passports, rolling over us.  US interstate travel ban without passport:  Coming if Omicron does it’s job.  Note:  early treatment will still likely work well.

Consider:

https://igorchudov.substack.com/p/omicron-may-have-25-32-fatality-rate

In any case, two of the above calculations show that Omicron CFR is at least double, or almost triple, of what South Africa experienced before. If this translates to the US experience (where we have twice lower CFR), and our CFR doubles or triples, we would get a disease with CFR of about 2.5-3.2%.

If we get an uncontrolled pandemic with a CFR of 2.5-3.2 percent, you can easily imagine the social consequences of this and the pandemonium that this would cause. It is not at all known how vaccination or natural immunity would affect fatality rates, but Omicron looks like a virus that is at least twice as deadly as Delta, and much more infectious for much faster spread.

    Yes, it’s a yawn for us… BUT

We are fighting for the hearts and minds of the ~ 40% of the population that can still be reached.. those that are not already lost too deep in the mass formation.

In that case it’s not yawn.. it’s a battle cry.  This is the front line of the information war, right here, in this foxhole, facing Omicron.  In order to save our friends and neighbors, or at least to say we tried, we must KNOW THINE ENEMY.

These fucking bastards. The Daily Beast, absolute propaganda machine as well – we’re going to see this trickle into the MSM.

When Omicron came out I was worried it would be with some sort of angle that strengthens the argument to get kids vaxxed. That’s because at the current stage, even some of the most ignorant brainwashed people I know have explicitly said that they won’t be letting their kids get vaxxed (a logic I find fascinating and insightful – it’s almost as though they are too spineless to say no and stand up for themselves, but that paternal instinct short-circuits the hypnosis – but they then can’t make that leap that if it’s dangerous for my child, then why am I having it!?) and what TPTB need right now is something to scare parents into “protecting” their kids with the experimental gene therapy shot. Lo and behold, we now see headlines such as this. And it will work. Absolute fucking scumbags.

    Sometimes you need to retreat

I must admit, I’ve been fighting this information war within a Whatsapp group of close friends for the last 12 months now. I have brought them all the information that would be needed to foster a reasonable doubt in any sensible mind. I have tried to show them that the media has lied, is lying, and the ways they will continue to lie – and showing the proof. They say you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. Well nobody told me the bit about not only will it not drink but it will turn around and bite you!

 

For my efforts at participating in this infowar at a level to try and win some hearts and minds within my close group of friends, I have taken ridicule and insults. I have been made the black sheep of the group. I’ve sacrificed my reputation, without a doubt. But I caught myself in the same trap that I found myself in when using social media platforms (which I no longer do) – impulsively posting, seeking social validation (look I am right), and battling trolls (no not anonymous accounts, people I actually know). After one insult too many this week, I left the group. Maybe I planted some seeds but I definitely lost that battle. I only have so many fucks to give and I couldn’t be arsed wasting anymore in that fight.

 

The goal now is to continue working on my own resilience, making new connections and finding the others who are trying to keep sane in this fucking clown world we’re in right now.

    I understand the desire to give up and draw inward…

I just won’t do it.  I don’t give a crap what people think of me… I am in the right.  It’s that simple.  I have done the homework and they have not.  We have to admit that the narrative is pounded home over, and over, and over again… it’s on the road signs on the highway, it’s over the loudspeaker at Walmart.. it’s all over your social media (which I don’t use).

The idea of jabbing kids has re-energized me.  I am going to canvas my neighborhood and see who is open minded.  I am going to find a core of very local friends who might end up joining in a home schooling effort if my state goes the direction of CA.

Jabbing little kids with mRNA is a step too far;
