IT’S A strange thing that while believers in the official Covid narrative – now being given another indulgent airing by the disgraceful Hallett so-called Inquiry – have abused and vilified the dissidents, we have been unfailingly polite and courteous to our detractors.
To take the latest example, Carl Henegan, Director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford, was called out for talking ‘half -baked nonsense’ with his questioning of the lockdowns and other disastrous Covid policies. By dramatic contrast, he remained restrained and professional in his own responses. In her account on TCW of the Covid inquiry, Dr Ros Jones remarked on the way that Sage, Whitty and other mask and vax proponents have been praised for their efforts, while the word ‘f*ckwit’ was used to describe Professor Henegan. Even Baroness Hallett, who is conducting the inquiry and is therefore supposed to be impartial, barely managed to be civil to him.
Andrew Bridgen MP has been castigated for drawing public attention to the excess deaths since Covid entered our lives and as we have seen, most of his fellow politicians voted with their feet by their non-attendance when he finally secured his debate on the subject. Never mind that Bridgen’s speech was full of closely-researched data and evidence, hardly any of our elected Members of Parliament deigned to listen to it.
This was an event where pictures spoke more loudly than words, as the cameras panned round the almost empty House. Yet Bridgen did not comment, at least publicly, on the sheer rudeness and bad manners of his fellow politicians who failed to attend. He just gave his speech calmly but forcefully to those few scattered around the benches.
Those of us who, while less in the public eye, have questioned the official narrative from the start have also received our fair share of abuse. We have been called conspiracy theorists, tinfoil hat wearers and dangerous peddlers of misinformation. We have had our Facebook posts taken down, our Twitter accounts suspended and often become alienated from family and former friends for questioning the ‘science’. A friend, ‘one of us’, says that the mildest rebuke she has received is ‘you’re so boring these days’. Others in her circle tell her that she has gone crazy from living on her own, and that is why she has embraced so many lunatic theories.
We have been stigmatised as armchair or amateur doctors, scientists and epidemiologists, as if we are not allowed to investigate and research for ourselves. Of course, the worst insult we have had to endure is to be called an ‘anti-vaxxer’. Piers Morgan railed on television against the anti-vaxxers, calling them ‘not just halfwits but quarterwits.’ He and other have spared no calumny in denouncing us; never asking whether we might have a point, or good reason, for refusing to be jabbed.
When I tell my detractors that without taking any of the so-called Covid precautions I have remained perfectly well throughout, with not even the slightest sniffle, they come back with: ‘The reason you have stayed well is because all the rest of us obeyed restrictions, self- isolated, taken tests, worn masks and had every booster. We have protected you.’ It has proved a waste of time to point out that it is the vaccinated ones who have gone down with respiratory illnesses of one kind or another following their seventh or eighth booster while most of we unboosted ones are unscathed. If we demur, we are told that it was since lockdowns, masks and bans on social gatherings were lifted, that Covid let rip once again. ‘I know people who have died from Covid, or are suffering from long Covid,’ we are informed, if we dare to point out just how badly the economy, businesses, education, mental and physical health have suffered, and for no good reason, since restrictions were imposed.
Even though evidence of harm from the mRNA vaccines is accumulating all the time and becoming hard to ignore, we are still being called superspreaders, crackpots and granny killers for not going along for the latest booster. One highly boosted person I know recently went down with Covid ‘and it’s grim, very grim’, she pointed out, blaming it on the fact that nobody was wearing a mask on the London Underground.
Those brave souls who have set up and run dissident, i.e. truth-telling, websites have had their Twitter accounts suspended, their bank accounts stopped, and advertising withdrawn, in a concerted attempt to demonetise them and force closure. They have faced unspeakable character assassination. But still they have carried on, refusing to be silenced.
Yes, our opposers have been nasty to us. They have reached for the vilest insults they could muster. They could hardly have been nastier. They have done their worst. Over the past three and a half years, along with many others, I have endured more insults for the stand I have taken over the Covid nonsense than at any other time in my life. But we have not returned insult with insult. We have just quietly got on with writing articles, holding talks and events, going on peaceful demonstrations, doing whatever we could to uphold the truth and make our voices heard.
We get their backs up because they are frightened of us, but the paradox is that our detractors’ sheer loathsomeness towards us is having the opposite effect to that intended. As they pile up their attacks, we are daily gaining more converts to the truth. Why, on Facebook just the other day a one-time believer in the official narrative posted oncologist Professor Angus Dalgleish’s paper on the increased number of cancer relapses he has noticed since the mRNA vaccines were introduced, commenting ‘This is interesting.’ Well – possibly even thanks to the relentless raining down of insults – people are finally starting to wake up and take notice.
