THE mainstream media have been busy wondering if Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine because Covid-19 has scrambled his brain.
Quite aside from the fact that suggesting so appears somehow to excuse him, this addling ‘brain fog’ to which the MSM allude is a spurious symptom of an equally spurious condition, Long Covid, which cannot unequivocally be said to exist.
Truly Putin must weep with laughter at that and the MSM’s other infantile theories, such as how he could trigger nuclear war due to an extreme paranoia of Covid-19 which has left his ability to perform rational risk-assessments in tatters.
Putin isn’t suffering from brain fog any more than Johnson, Macron, Ardern, Merkel and Trudeau are. Why? Because these people ARE the brain fog.
Since early 2020 they have all done little else but pump the noxious, propagandist smoke of a global reset into the lungs of their respective populations, and then blamed the detrimental psychological and societal effects on the lethal, novel fog of Covid-19.
According to the Office for National Statistics’ findings, as of January 31 an estimated 1.5million people in the UK were experiencing self-reported Long Covid – all of whom had merely responded to the UK Coronavirus Infection Survey rather than having been clinically diagnosed (the medical infeasibility of this notwithstanding).
Confirmation of having been infected in the first place appears not even to be a prerequisite to responding to the survey – ‘suspected’ cases of infection lumped in with confirmed cases.
This means that potentially hundreds of thousands of people could have reported symptoms such as fatigue and difficulty concentrating – ailments easily associated with a host of other illnesses such as depression (the real pandemic) for example – but yet who were then chalked-up nevertheless as officially suffering from ‘Long Covid’.
That the vaccines themselves can cause any number of debilitating neurological injuries provides no foundation for the conjuring-up of such useful tools for behavioural modification as the phantom conditions of Long Covid or ‘brain fog’. Besides, there is no money to be made from ‘long vaccine syndrome’, only compensation to pay out, and hence this money is simply withheld on the grounds that vaccine injury is simply too elusive a spectre to identify with any degree of certainty.
And yet we are supposed to swallow the line that it is in part because mighty Putin could be tired or struggling to concentrate; because he feels socially isolated, or is unable to either smell or taste his favourite caviar, or because he has developed a debilitating case of post-infection germophobia that he has lashed out at Ukraine like a madman?
Of course we are – it is indicative of the recent pivot from Covid to Long Covid, and just one of the many ways in which the profitable, doom-laden public health narrative can be stretched into the future.
After all, if a Disease X has the potential to precipitate World War Three, governments must surely double-down on their mission to eradicate any and all viral risk from the face of the earth. Roll up your sleeves, people: world peace depends upon it.
Only the most gullible could believe that something such as the BBC’s ‘pandemic brain’ is the straw that broke the megalomaniac Russian camel’s back.
The MSM have some gall to draw any parallels at all between the invasion of Ukraine and an as-of-yet-to-be-confirmed condition caused by a virus of as-of-yet-to-be-confirmed origin.
Handy for the emerging post-Covid International Order, isn’t it, how all the threats to national and global security of the new era are all invisible to the general public – SARS-CoV-2, climate change, political incorrectness, cyber-attacks; Johnson’s Omicron ‘clouds over Europe’, and now his ‘radioactive clouds’ over Europe; brain fog. I’m losing track of which spook I should be fearing most.
Putin’s announcement of the invasion, and his warning to Nato not to intervene, was reportedly made in ‘rambling, terrifying, apocalyptic’ fashion. Yet paradoxically, it is our normalisation of the terrifying, apocalyptic ramblings of our own increasingly tyrannical Western leaders over the last two years that is perhaps the greatest threat to humanity, and the condition we should be most concerned about.
To witness a pseudo-benign political leader rambling his way through informing the general public that, for the foreseeable future, the elderly of the nation are to die alone and children are to be locked away at home, for example, one need look no further than Johnson himself, and to his back catalogue of despotic public health announcements.
That his government (and whilst its various agencies and allies gather evidence of Russian war crimes) has itself been accused of crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes of aggression, in a complaint submitted to the International Criminal Court by lawyer Hannah Rose, will escape the attention of the general population – our rambling, apocalypse-loving, State-controlled media prohibiting any national discussion on the matter.
And therein lies the most obscene hypocrisy. While most watch in horror and condemnation at the unfolding events in Ukraine, the cruel domestic crimes of the pandemic to which these onlookers themselves were, and still are subjected, are being erased from memory by the great fog-machine of war.
‘I cannot even imagine what you [people of Ukraine] are living through right now, or the outrage and heartbreak you must feel as everything you know and love is so inexplicably and brutally shattered,’ rambled Partygate parolee Johnson last Friday, displaying a terrifying degree of domestic moral memory loss.
A life of crime must certainly be quite appealing if the only ramifications are occasionally to have to fill out a questionnaire from the Met.
Question 1: Were you experiencing suspected brain fog and difficulty concentrating at the time of the alleged offence, and which impeded your ability to understand the laws of Lockdown? If you answered yes, your case will now be referred to the Office for National Statistics.
Nobody wants to see the people of Ukraine pulverised, and certainly nobody wants to belittle their suffering. It’s the terrifying moral double standards of the British Government when it comes to toying with people’s lives that is so sickening to bear.
