COVID: Clouds Of Confusion

Written by Allan Erickson on June 15, 2022

COVID! We have a miracle vaccine.
It was developed in record time.
It is supplied to you via emergency authorization.
That means it was not thoroughly tested.
Don’t worry, it’s safe and effective.
The President says he does not believe in forcing people to take this miracle vaccine.
But everyone should get vaccinated.
If you don’t get vaccinated, you put yourself at risk.
Refuse the vax? You put everyone at risk!
Remember, it’s safe and effective!
Still refuse?!
We have billions of doses. The whole world should get the vax.
OK, so you Neanderthals don’t believe the science, is that it?!
So now we have to force you to take the jab.
The President mandates the jab for everyone employed by the federal government.
The President says you are irresponsible if you don’t get the jab.
A global campaign is launched: Mandates, quarantines, lockdowns proliferate.
Hundreds of thousands of companies shut down. Hundreds of thousands of workers get fired.
Parts of the economy start to collapse.
Massive protests worldwide. Some countries force quarantines and lockdowns.
Oh wait! Only 60% of Americans are jabbed, and it appears it’s not working quite right.
There are variants! Mask and distance.
Some variants defy the vax. Some say the vax stimulates variants increasing infection.
So we need boosters. Wear a mask. Don’t wear a mask. Masks are injurious.
Wait. Vaccinated people are getting sick.
We need more vaccinations to reach herd immunity.
Wait. There are severely adverse events reported, associated with the vax.
Oh no. Thousands of deaths reported.
Public health officials goad the President to force more jabs.
If you refuse the jab, you are fired or isolated and maligned.
Herd immunity is not important. Mask and distance.
Get the jab. It’s safe and effective.
But what about this army of doctors who say it’s dangerous and ineffective?
What about the billions of dollars made by Big Pharma?
What about Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine? Banned!
There’s a new wave of infections. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Get the jab. Get boosted.
OK, looks like it’s tapering off. Wear a mask.
Oh no. It’s back. Get the jab, get boosted.
Wait, the jab is not safe or effective. Masks don’t work.
But I got the jab and I was only sick for a couple of days.
I was told if I got the jab I would not be contagious. Now my whole family is sick.
Long COVID can mean premature death.
Old folks are dying after getting the jab. Herd immunity is better than the jab.
Young people are left with serious injuries or death.
Did the Chinese do this to us? Cede power to the WHO.
Call Fauci. Call Biden. Ring. Ring. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Infections are up fivefold over last year. But the number of deaths year to year is about the same!
Get the jab. Mask. Boost. Distance. ZZZ
Monkeypox.
