‘Why should someone who has had Covid need the vaccine?’ That was the question posed by Kathy Gyngell in TCW Defending Freedom on August 10. It is a question that most of the media have no interest in asking. Indeed, it seems the media have abandoned their role of inquiry and revelation.
I am probably not alone in being miserable and concerned as the media uniformly trots out the same ‘Anti-vaxxer dies after spouting conspiracy theories, bereaved family tells people to get their jabs’ and ‘I was fit and healthy and Covid nearly killed me’ stories. It is co-ordinated and it’s part of an agenda.
Daily the stories cascade across the media in an effort to browbeat readers or viewers who have not been jabbed into getting done. Many stories have almost certainly been cribbed from press releases, given the almost identical information and photos across outlets from different media stables.
We have to ask, what about the stories telling us of the people who have died very soon after being jabbed, or suffered horrendous side effects? Or the latest numbers and details from the under-used Yellow Card reporting system? Their stories remain under the radar and are increasingly hard to find.
It is clear that the media have no interest in questioning, challenging and seeking to give us information in a balanced and open-minded way. They have collectively morphed into a Soviet-era Pravda, aligned with the political class they are supposed to question and hold to account.
I am more than fed up with being lectured that my reluctance to submit to a rushed gene therapy treatment, with no long-term safety data, which doesn’t even stop infection or transmission of Covid, is selfish and that I am an unhinged conspiracy theorist. Also that my caution results in sneering condescension, unfounded accusations regarding my motives and even ministerial threats of being denied access to medical provision if I don’t give in to the state’s demands.
It is only through sites such as this one that I get to read beyond the fearmongering and psychological assault on the public, to discover how the compound leaks its material beyond the arm muscle in contradiction of what it is supposed to do – leading to spike proteins gathering in organs where their effects can be dangerous.
I believe Covid is a real virus, likely modified in a lab. I believe it is capable of killing a very, very small percentage of people, particularly elderly or those with co-morbidities. I believe it can cause a number of different symptoms, some extremely debilitating. I had all my childhood inoculations and so have my children. I happily took the yellow fever vaccine when I had to go to Africa. Along with hepatitis, diphtheria, tetanus etc. Every autumn I go to the GP surgery for a flu shot. Are these the actions of an anti-vaxxer? Are the attacks justified?
The government and the media have completely destroyed any faith I had in them. My trust in them has gone. I cannot help but feel their actions have ulterior motives that serve interests other than those of the majority of people in this country. That should be a worrying development.
It will require a response. There is a cohort of decent, rational people in this country who desperately seek a cohesive, sensible, respectable centre-right alternative to the Conservatives. A party which believes in the small state, individual freedom and personal responsibility that the Tories repeatedly pretend to represent.
Rarely has Margaret Mead’s oft-cited quote, ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. In fact, it’s the only thing that ever has’, been more relevant than it is today. While fighting this battle we need to be preparing for the one that will follow it.
Politics as we knew it is over. Once we have forced our way out of this authoritarian nightmare that has used the pandemic as an excuse to trample over our lives, we need to work to replace those who make up the political class, who have treated us with such contempt and so casually discarded the values and principles that are necessary to keep common ground with the general public.
