Pandemic apology tour sickening

So now all the “experts” in white lab coats who shut down society on a totalitarian whim for no good reason in 2020-21 are now seeking a “pandemic amnesty.”

So now all the “experts” in white lab coats who shut down society on a totalitarian whim for no good reason in 2020-21 are now seeking a “pandemic amnesty.”

I don’t think so.

But I do appreciate that The Atlantic — once a respectable if semi-boring Boston magazine, now a shrill organ of state-run media – is dredging up all these terrible memories less than a week before the mid-term elections.

It’s almost as if the Democrats are trying to identify every single voter in America and then personally p.o. each and every one of them before they vote.

Inflation, rampant crime, illegal aliens, fentanyl, fuel shortages, mostly peaceful riots – if all those and assorted other recent Democrat catastrophes aren’t enough to get you motivated to throw the bums out, perhaps you can recall… The Panic of 2020.

The column in The Atlantic came out earlier this week, written by an academic from Brown University. (Really, how much more do you need to know?)

This woman’s name is Emily Oster. She’s an “expert,” an “authority.” She was on Team Follow-the-Science. That was the squad led by Dr. Anthony “I Am the Science” Fauci, an octogenarian whose net worth doubled from 2019 to December 2021 – from $7.6 million to $12.6 million.

Here are a few of Oster’s mea culpas about, among other things, untested vaccinations, lockdowns, masks, social distancing, contact tracing, Plexiglas barriers, curfews (9:30 on weeknights, 10:30 on weekends), closed schools and churches, no sports, no visits to dying relatives, etc. etc. etc.

“These precautions were totally misguided… This misstep wasn’t nefarious. It was the result of uncertainty… Most errors were made by people who were working in earnest for the good of society.”

Do you suppose that some of the imprisoned “insurrectionists” from Jan. 6 could make that same argument? But somehow I doubt Dr. Oster and the readers of The Atlantic would be buying it.

The experts were only following orders. That defense has been used before. It didn’t work then, and it doesn’t work now.

Henry Kissinger once said that power is the ultimate aphrodisiac. It certainly was for this crowd. But the hangover – wow!

“But the thing is: We didn’t know.”

Now they tell us!

Actually, some of us did know, instinctively. Some, like Alex Berenson, were banned from Twitter for speaking the truth. Others were fired from their jobs, shunned, screamed at by menopausal Karens of both sexes.

Personally, I was thrown off youtube repeatedly for discussing the government’s own statistics with an ophthalmologist from Colorado. (I’m on Rumble now.)

The corrupt Department of Public Health in Massachusetts put out a chart every week listing the ages of the dead. It told the story – over 70% of the victims were over the age of 80. Basically nobody under the age of 30 who wasn’t already terminally ill with something else was dying.

That DPH chart was so revealing that first they just tried to bury it, and finally they stopped putting it online. But everything was on the level….

Every day the failed governor, Charlie Baker, would go on TV and impose some insane new draconian lockdown. Most of the deaths here were in nursing homes the DPH wasn’t properly supervising. Baker never gave back the $52,000 he pocketed from nursing home executives.

More than 70 veterans died in a state-run nursing home in Holyoke run by a second-generation Democrat hack who had given $1,950 to Baker and his lieutenant governor.

If you hired the right lobbyist, you could re-open your business. If you didn’t, forget about it.

And now we’re just supposed to forget about it. Have you ever heard an old lady weeping because she wasn’t even allowed to attend the burial of her sister? Have you ever talked to somebody in a 12-step program tell you about addicts who relapsed because the meetings were canceled for months at a time?

How many people got fired from their jobs? How many people didn’t want to get fired, so they took the jab, and then they got sick, or maybe worse than sick, if you know what I mean.

These “experts” wrecked the entire society – I don’t think that’s an exaggeration. They don’t have to tell us how sorry they are. We know how sorry they are.

Just don’t ask us to forget.

Millions of people got out of the habit of working. They got addicted to Democrat welfare, and there aren’t any 12-step programs for that, although there probably should be.

Emily Oster mentions, however gingerly, some of those same statistics that everyone who cared to look at could understand. Like, for instance, parents.

“The health risks of in-school spread were relatively low, whereas the cost to students’ well-being and educational progress were high.”

You don’t say, Madame Expert? But now her alibi is that, much like Sgt. Schultz, she knew nothing. She was only following orders.

“In the spring and summer 2020 we had only glimmers of information.”

So all you “experts” let the likes of Randi Weingarten make the calls to keep the schools closed, and her dues-paying members on vacation.

Now Oster throws herself on the mercy of the court of public opinion. But she still can’t stop making it up. They never can.

“Obviously some people intended to mislead and made wildly irresponsible claims.”

You mean, like Joe Biden when he said that vaccinations meant you wouldn’t get sick? Or when he was running for president and said he wouldn’t take the vaccine because Trump was involved. Or when Brandon said that he understood why black people wouldn’t want to take the shot because of “the Tuskegee Airmen.”

But of course, it’s not the Democrats who were lying, even though Jane Fonda said the Panic was God’s gift to the Democrats, to derail Trump’s campaign for reelection.

“Remember,” she writes, “when the public-health community had to spend a lot of time and resources urging Americans not to inject themselves with bleach.”

As if that were ever a serious suggestion. But this is what these “experts” are all about. They want us to forget all their years of abject lies, as they keep treating Americans like mushrooms – keeping us in the dark and feeding us excrement.

Here’s the deal, Emily. You stop lying about us deplorables, and we’ll stop telling the truth about you Brandon voters.

And please, don’t hate us because we were right and you were wrong. We were just “people who were working in earnest for the good of society.”

We just had better… glimmers than all you experts did.
