You Murderous Hypocrites


Semi keen-eyed readers will have noticed the appallingly millionaire socialist Atlantic crying out for pandemic forgiveness. "Let's Declare an Amnesty," writes prof Emily Oster, suggesting we all just forgive and forget COVID crimes:

"Let’s acknowledge that we made complicated choices in the face of deep uncertainty, and then try to work together to build back and move forward."

But some aren't convinced, perhaps they remember the Atlantic's owner sailing down the Riviera on her mega yacht even as her magazine was pushing for the strictest lockdowns. Don't say ultra-rich leftist hypocrite. Here's Zerohedge on the response, a snapshot:

In one epic Twitter thread, Claremont Institute Senior Fellow Matthew J. Peterson (@docMJP) excoriates Oster's entire premise;

Hey—sorry you lost your job b/c of the vax that doesn’t work and your grandmother died alone and you couldn’t have a funeral and your brother’s business was needlessly destroyed and your kids have weird heart problems—but let’s just admit we were all wrong and call a truce, eh?

It’s too bad we shut the entire economy down & took on tyrannical powers that have never been used before in this country—looking back, you should have been able to go to church and use public parks while we let people riot in the streets—but it was a confusing time for everyone.

Hey I'm sorry we scared the hell out of you & lied for years & persecuted & censored anyone who disagreed but there was an election going on & we really wanted to beat Donald Trump so it was important to radically politicize the science even if it destroyed your children's lives.

OK, yes we said unvaccinated people should die & not get healthcare while never questioning Big Pharma once but we are compassionate people which is why even though we shut down the entire economy we also bankrupted the nation & caused inflation. You're welcome! Let's be friends.

As QTR's Fringe Finance notes, Oster’s plea for the decency that her ilk failed to offer up to most Americans during the throws of the pandemic comes at a point where the Covid narrative has been all but lost by the Democrats and the mainstream media.


Above emph mine. In related news and again via Zero, Democrats supported this during the COVID freakout, which was, remember, a virus with a 99% survival rate:

  • Fines for the unvaccinated: Fifty-eight percent (58%) of voters would oppose a proposal for federal or state governments to fine Americans who choose not to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

  • House arrest: Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democratic voters would favor a government policy requiring that citizens remain confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Imprisonment for questioning the vaccine: Nearly half (48%) of Democratic voters think federal and state governments should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications.

  • Forced quarantine: Forty-five percent (45%) of Democrats would favor governments requiring citizens to temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

  • Stripping people of their children: Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Democratic voters would support temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine. That’s much more than twice the level of support in the rest of the electorate – seven percent (7%) of Republicans and 11% of unaffiliated voters – for such a policy.

Forgiveness is a virtue. Does it mean that murdering, hypocrite, psychotically rich people and their bought and paid for satraps shouldn't be held accountable for their crimes? All in light of faux repentance? 

BTW, I haven't seen my youngest boy in three years, thanks to this totalitarian, State Stasi insanity and the sockist fool in Ottawa. Whatever, personal concerns aside.

You be the judge,

You used it as an excuse to treat other human beings in the most horrendous, undignified manner you could.
Fuck you.
No forgiveness, only retribution.

No, no forgiveness. Yes, accountability.

Amen, Parson. Forgive and forget the harm they have done? Never, and, given the chance they'll do it again, evil never sleeps. Fauci, Gates, etc
need to pay for what they"ve done, it's time for Nuremberg 2, these people should be in jail.

There needs to be a reckoning. "Pour encourager les autres." Otherwise, they'll be they'll be back to do worse next time.

It's a tough predicament. Forgiveness vs the very understandable desire that our masters be punished.

Right now I'm leaning more towards the punishment camp. Because if they aren't punished they will do it again.

Our big hospital here in Boise STILL has it’s mask policy in effect. I went yesterday for yearly labs and refused the mask. A supervisor came to inform me that I’d be refused service and asked to leave if I did not put it on, so I complied.
I retired from that hospital at age 71 after 48 yrs as an RN. In the last two years they have badly tarnished the warm glow through which I remember my career.

CC, righteousness demands it.

LSP said...

Mr. WSF, are the two irreconcilable?

LSP said...

There must be a reckoning, Anon.

Great will be the fall of them.

LSP said...

100%, Wild.

LSP said...

Infidel, as they've reaped so shall they sow.

What will that look like? Imagine an eternity of having to believe everything Biden, CNN, MSNBC, NBC and NPR has to say.

Burning coals on head.

LSP said...

I'm really sorry to hear that, Anon. Is there some way you can band together and fire them?

No, there is not. It’s their hospital.
As the Maha Rushie (God rest him) useta say, “To analyze most interactions, follow the power and the money.” In this case, it’s both.
