He sums up the way I’ve felt since this hysteria began. Of course, I’m sure detractors will say he cheated he way into Cambridge and the only reason for his professional accomplishments is a life-long friendship with Donald Trump or something similarly predictable.
“There is absolutely nothing to be done to contain this virus other than protecting your more vulnerable people. It should be thought of as nothing more than a bad flu season.
“This is not Ebola. It’s not SARS. It’s politics playing medicine. And that’s a very dangerous game.”
“Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence based on their effectiveness whatsoever. Seeing these people walking around like lemmings obeying without any knowledge…putting the masks on.”
Hodkinson said social distancing is also “useless” because the virus can travel up to 30 m before landing.
Tell that to independent, small business owners who were already at a disadvantage competing with Amazon, Wal-Mart, Lowes, Home Depot, McDonald’s etc that attract only customers that are impervious to this “pandemic”.
Not exactly. I’ve linked things like this before (not here) and been told “haha I haven’t heard that in any respected organization like the NY Times or CNN. Consider me a skeptic.”
If you weren’t implying that I apologize. What were you saying?
I agree with you about the wars on “fill in the blank” that pop up every couple of decades to wag the dog. I thought you were minimizing the damage this is doing to small business owners and the mental health of millions. Pardon moi.
So what he said, particularly the quotes I posted, are just incredibly outlandish because he’s a pathologist?
I genuinely wish someone could produce a deep fake video with Fauci telling everyone to jump on one leg and bark like a dog in order to eradicate COVID. Not saying you would do this, but I’d be fascinated just to see how many would.
Average age of those who have been dying recently is 78. That is not the average age of the overall population.
He did say that the more vulnerable population should be protected.
Due to age and other factors, I am pretty much in that “vulnerable population” so I am pretty careful. If I were like 30, I would not be at all happy with all these lockdowns.
I assume flu deaths are mostly among the same age group.
It sounds like you’re being prudent. I’m in my 40s and have no underlying conditions (that I know of), and I’m unhappy with the lockdowns. But I see my mom everyday, so I’m basically on lockdown anyway for her sake.
No. The virus was here a year or more ago. Remember that horrible Flu starting back in October-November of last year?
Do you realize there are at least 6 old, sci-fi novels I know of that explored the idea of using a virus to control people? One of Arthur C Clarke’s last books spelled it out. This is because, the collective mind already has this idea because it’s already in the memory banks.
Because people are so primitive mentally and lack understanding of the big picture, they are easily fooled by sociopathic, totalitarian, power mad, lunatics.
The key word is “Incredulity.”
Even talking about it is clamped down on by power mad, low IQ, animality laden, fools. This has all happened before.
