THE data about its experimental gene therapy that Pfizer has reluctantly released shows a 12 per cent efficacy for seven days before fading to less than 1 per cent. It also indicates additional dangers when it is administered during pregnancy.
With a few notable exceptions such as Mark Steyn, James Delingpole, and of course the intrepid writers for TCW Defending Freedom, established members of the media and their celebrity acolytes have subjected those who declined the injections to a concerted campaign of intimidation and abuse.
Now the media are finally being forced to accept that Covid was not the Black Death, they are trying to get us to forget it ever happened and their role in whipping up fear about it.
Lest we forget their role in the recent ‘inquisition’, these are some of the worst offenders:
Kevin O’Sullivan in a tweet regarding the Pfizer data: ‘We’re not aching to cover it and we haven’t been told to desist. We make our own editorial decisions and vaccine stories seem like yesterday’s news.’
Mike Graham in a tweet asking him whether it was worth mentioning the Pfizer Documents: ‘Not Really.’
Andrew Neil: ‘It’s time to punish Britain’s Five Million Refuseniks.’
Anne McElvoy: ‘The unvaccinated have become a lethal liability we can ill-afford.’
Esther Rantzen, asked if she would leave the unjabbed at home to die if they had a heart attack or a stroke: ‘That’s their choice.’
Dr Hilary Jones: ‘There is no data to suggest this vaccine will affect your fertility’; ‘All the countries that lockdowned earlier had better health outcomes’.
Piers Morgan: ‘Anti-vaxxers really are a bunch of spineless p***ies.’
Andrew Pierce, referring to compulsory vaccinations: ‘I have a lot of sympathy with what’s going on in Austria.’
Stephen Nolan: ‘Is it time to get tough on those not taking the vaccines?’
Alan Shearer: ‘We all want to protect ourselves on a match day, and the best way to protect ourselves and other people is to get vaccinated.’
Joe Root: ‘Let’s make sure we’re doing everything we can to look out for each other and the generations to come.’
Michael Ball: ‘It’s your duty to have the vaccines.’
Lord (Andrew) Lloyd-Webber, comparing those who declined the experimental jab to drunk drivers: ‘I do think it’s selfish, because look at it this way – you could just say, “I would like to go out and have a drink tonight and drive home,” and accidentally I kill somebody.’
Sir Mick Jagger, referring to ‘anti-vaxxers’: ‘They’re just irrational, of course, there’s no point in speaking to people about it. They don’t get it.’
Sir Lenny Henry: ‘I want people to be safe, I don’t want people to die or end up in hospital because of Covid-19. So I’m saying, when your turn comes, take the jab.’
Clearly the media is no better now than it was in the time of William Cobbett (1763-1835): ‘The cause of the people has been betrayed by hundreds of men, who were able to serve the people, but whom a love of ease and of the indulgence of empty vanity have seduced into the service of the bribing usurpers, who have spared no means to corrupt men of literary talent from the authors of folios to the authors of baby-books and ballads, caricature-makers, song-makers all have been bribed by one means or another . . . playwriters, historians . . . none have escaped.’
