My favorite quote: "It is just hard to put into words how infuriating it is, to read this breezy triviliasation of the absolute hell we’ve been through, penned by some comfortable and clueless Ivy League mommyconomist who is ready to mouth support for basically any pandemic policy that doesn’t directly affect her or her family and then plead that the horrible behaviour and policies supported by her entire social milieu are just down to ignorance about the virus. We knew everything we needed to know about SARS-2 already in February 2020. The pandemicists and their supporters crossed many bright red lines in their eradicationist zeal and ruined untold millions of lives. That doesn’t all just go away now."

Me too. Just quoted it as I forwarded this email to my sister who forced her young adult kids to get the shot to stay living in their house, and also required guests to her daughter’s wedding this past April to be vaxxed or have a negative test.

Reminds me of my brother. In June of 2021 he went to a dinner party attended by 22 people. You had to be vaxxed to go. PLUS....they did little quickie rapid tests before going into the place where the dinner was to be held. All tested negative. A few days after the dinner, 20 of the 22 had come down with the flu called covid. Ho hum.

I am sure I will go to hell for this but I find these stories so amusing. And they are everywhere. We had a large group of anesthesia folks from our hospital go to a vaxxed only wedding in April ‘21 and I believe 9 out of 11 all came back with Covid. And yet. We were only in the beginning of being told that the vaxxes were effective - despite a thousand stories just like this, the safe and effective lies rolled in for months and months.

Yet I'm willing to bet they all claimed the symptoms were much milder because they had been vaxed. I still regularly hear these claims

My parents live in my house. In April 2021 they'd already been vaccinated. My husband and I were still on the fence about it. Well, the week we became eligible to take the vaccine (mid April) we came down with covid. My parents also got covid. It was then that my fence sitting ended and I decided against getting the shot. Glad I did.

Highest exposure danger in 2021 was hospital employees assuming they were invincible and spotless after having the vax. Sad for all the patients they infected who entered with negative tests. Plus lots of rolling vacation time as the staff continued to infect one another in batches at the coffee table.

Surely, the 'safe and effective' lies are still common currency with the authorities and the MSM? In the UK, student nurses are still being mandated to have the clot-shots, despite other carers not being so mandated any longer. There's simply no sense or reasoning behind most official pronouncements.

Nope. They are adults and citizens of a free republic. They had free will. When history came calling they panicked and discarded the principles upon which western democracies were founded. Without repentance, they can’t be trusted. We appealed to their reason by showing them data and counter arguments, we appealed to their humanity over how their fellow man was being gagged and discriminated against. But since neither of those tactics worked, we are left with naming and shaming them with the hopes of smacking some sense into them so they won’t act this way the next time.

In our family I was the outcast as I didn't have the vaccine. I had a couple of my adult children on the phone pleading with me to have it and I didn't. The vaccines are elephants in the room now but we still speak. I recently had Covid (as proved by a positive LfT required for a hospital appointment) for the first time and the family interest was lukewarm. I was OK - not a pleasant experience but hopefully done and dusted. I think I had it anyway in 2020, I just never tested. I also think they know I was right but don't want to admit it.

I'm all for forgiveness. I believe there's value in that and it is the legitimate Christian thing to do. What she's asking for isn't forgiveness, but she's asking for no negative consequences for her actions and those that pushed this idiocy. She wants her and her ilk to be trusted despite the fact that they've been consistently wrong. She wants to live as if she never made a mistake. That's just not possible and they made it that way by continuing the farce past the "two weeks to flatten the curve." I forgive them for what they did because I know it's what I need to do and I will move on from this idiocy, but they'll never receive even a presumption of trust again. There is no charity left for liars and fools that refuse to repent.

What Prof Oster wants are no repercussions for her ilk--no loss of stature, reputation, or position in the cultural hierarchy for those who rained the mandates, proscriptions, and "the jab or your job" impositions on the public. They trashed their integrity on the backs of those who lost jobs, businesses, and livelihoods due to their hysteria and panic--and now want to go forward ("never mind") as if the past three years were a nightmare dream from which we've awoken.

frankly, even in an emergency, i wouldn't want a doctor who resented me for not being vaccinated and was just saving my life because he was legally forced to do it.

the Spoleto Arts Festival in Charleston, SC where i worked brilliantly since 1980, dismissed me without a word because i wouldn't take the shot, forgetting that all my great contributions spanning 40 years happened because i'm a rebel and an independent thinker.

they banned ticket sales to all but double vaxxed, boosted, masked and photo IDed people. remember that requiring a photo ID for a presidential election will get you branded a racist but apparently it's ok to make that demand of a concert goer.

so what happens when you're an arts festival who's goal is to sell tickets to fill the seats in your theaters and you reject all by the most terrified, obedient, compliant minority?

you say the arts are for everyone and you are heavy into DEI but all the black people who didn't get vaccinated because they remember Tuskegee and eugenics can't even consider going?

what happens? you don't sell that many tickets.

the governor of the State signs a bill making medical discrimination illegal and the Festival resentfully has to open up ticket sales to everyone, even those filthy reprehensible unvaccinated types.

then what happens to ticket sales? nothing! nada! you mortally offended people and you're doing the right thing now only because you were forced to. so you're not forgiven and no one buys tickets. AND the smug superior terrified types who bought tickets secure in the knowledge that they wouldn't have to be near any of those terrible unvaccinated people, now feel betrayed by your change of policy and they want refunds!

do you really want to attend a concert sponsored by an organization that didn't want to let you in but is only doing it to avoid legal problems. NO!

so if you could chose between a doctor who was honorable and one who judged you as morally inferior and did his job begrudgingly, who would you chose?

perhaps with less pharmaceutical interference and less GOF viruses, we'll be less sick and need fewer doctors. i say keep the ones who do the job out of real commitment (give Dr McCollough his license back!) and ditch the ones who just follow orders.

I used to frequent my city's symphony. They're still requiring masks. I can't bring myself to go. Not sure I'll ever attend them again as they smugly instituted a vaccine passport system early on.

Expand full comment

yup, that's right and let them know why.

my BF's young assistant jumped over old people to be first in line at 26 to get the vaccine. he's pestered my BF continually, out of respect because he wanted him to be able to come back to work. if anyone's a believer, it's this guy.

but here's broadway not requiring masks of the audience but still of the employees. now he says "they're just doing this to control us."

Yeah. I withdrew from a college program I had just enrolled in due to the vaccine passport being required. I told them honestly that I wouldn't support an organization that requires the vaccine to enroll, especially when the program was ENTIRELY ONLINE. I stopped attending symphonies, quit my gym membership and stopped patronizing some businesses. I've gone back to a few after they dropped it.

ugh, incredible! they were doing it, not because it made sense but because they had probably taken $$$ from the government in exchange for recruitment.

i seriously hope college enrollment drops to numbers that are calamitous for their bottom line. the education is for shit anyway. maybe they'll have to cut a few diversity deans and victim classes.

i've sworn off businesses that enforced mandates for life. there were restaurants in NYC who banded together and sued the insane governor. they said "hey, our job is to welcome people in and feed them, not to act as the vaccine police."

but all those businesses who gleefully enforced mandates, as if they had been just waiting for a chance to be the boss of you, screw them.

we regularly house some out of town musicians for the local symphony but we weren't allowed to attend if we didn't have a negative test. vaccinated people had no such requirement. the only concert we attended, i walked right in and no one ever even asked to see my test. i could have been typhoid mary, just sitting next to unsuspecting people and infecting them and no one would have known!

our musicians, a young couple originally from moscow, both have medical exemptions and we love them but when they aren't in the concert, the orchestra manager wants to send over someone else to use the room.

i've said NO. i don't support the symphony and i'm not doing this for the symphony. i'm doing this for these two unvaccinated people who you discriminated against like you discriminated against us. like we were good enough to provide a room but not good enough to attend without first proving that we were "clean." so i'll always house these two but no one else. the last thing i need in my house is some triple masked person drowning in hand sanitizer who's had covid 6 times, thank god she had those 7 vaccines or it would have been worse. sure, you were just doing your job, but that's the excuse of every foot soldier on the road to tyranny.

so now the musicians contact me directly when they need to stay. they have their own key anyway. they've become our family.

but the symphony- screw them. i can listen to a record without anyone checking my papers.

i hope you got your money back!

you have no idea! when i first came here, i didn't realize how the town and the event would become pivotal in my life. i opened a costume shop in NYC so i'd be free to do this festival every year. i saved money and bought houses down here- when houses were cheap. everything i've done since has been a result of taking that 6 week job in 1980.

as the supervisor, i worked with costume designers and musical artists from around the world which made me better at my job in NY. i met my life partner here. i always assumed i would eventually move here and keep doing the festival once i no longer worked in NY.

i might work literally around the clock for weeks under tremendous stress, but the day the Festival opened and i got to stand in the back of the Dock St Theater to see my favorite chamber musicians do their thing, my soul was restored.

it wasn't a job. it was a calling.

now i wonder why i'm here at all. i live in a big house that we are constantly trying to finish but i don't know if my neighbors would turn me in if they knew i wasn't vaccinated. my BF had to give up his job in NY- he was commuting every other week. we were suddenly without purpose and without community- his theater mates in NY and my Festival friends here in Charleston. my beloved assistant of 30 years showed up one day unannounced to drop off my personal effects from my desk and said "well, you made your choice and the Festival respected your choice and moved on. there was no discrimination." beloved no longer.

not a single person on the large production crew called me to say.... i don't know- something, anything. a cellist, who was shocked to learn that i was no longer with the Festival- something no one could ever imagine happening if it didn't involve death- came over to see me and brought greetings from the other chamber musicians. but since none of them know that i wasn't there because i'm not vaccinated, how sincere were their sentiments? if they knew, would they treat me like my former assistant did?

but how do you mend a broken heart? for me, it's real estate and i'm always on the lookout. i didn't buy a new hat, get a hair cut or drown my sorrows in a pint of rocky road. we cashed in our retirement money and bought a 19 acre farm- fuck it, an 1842 plantation, in beautiful condition totally furnished.

our friend and partner lives there with his family and runs the BnB end of it. so far, people seem to love staying there even though the property once- gasp!- had slaves.

there's a pool, a hot tub, a pond, 5 cottages with long term tenants or BnB guests, a massive barn, an event tent, a 4 car stone garage, a tool shop, a brick potting shed, chicken coops, raised beds and fruit trees. the massive main house has 8 bedrooms each with their own bath. we got a fully restored 1906 steinway concert grand, the art on the walls, enough dishes for a banquet, 2 golf carts and a tractor.

our partner is getting beehives and cows so far. it's our own little refuge, a community to make up for the one we lost.

thank you so much for your kind words.

it amazes me that if a bakery doesn't want to make a wedding cake for a gay couple, they get slammed and canceled but if your pediatrician tosses you out because you, as a concerned parent, have a few questions about the bloated childhood vaccine schedule, that's ok.

with their advanced education, maybe they shouldn't have fallen back so much on the blind faith thing.

what about those doctors who refused to do transplants? refused to try ivermectin even though their patients were dying anyway? pushed people in gas chambers (sorry, different time)?

leave the buildings. they are blameless and much of that architecture can never be duplicated. but as someone who worked for 30 years on broadway as a costumer, i say yes, dump the people in charge. don't forget the Met Opera, the Holocaust Museum in DC. any orchestra. the Spoleto Arts Festival where i worked since 1980.

it's astonishing to me that the Arts went along without a whimper, sometimes even going above and beyond.

the Met demanded boosters before NYC did. the Spoleto Festival in the free state of SC instituted draconian (and illegal) mandates for employment and audience members that had nothing to do with the State's policy. i say illegal because they allowed no accommodation for medical or religious exemptions. when Gov McMaster signed a bill making it illegal to discriminate on the basis of vaccine status, they had to reverse course.

i suspect all these institutions took federal money. i know that every Broadway producer was given $10 million to tide them over and i bet that money came with some strings attached.

but it was stunning to watch. my BF, a respected and revered grand old man of broadway stagehands, had to retire. i was booted out of the Spoleto Festival after 40 years as the costume supervisor. my beloved assistant of 30 years said to me "well, you made your choice and the festival respected your choice and moved on. there was no discrimination."

i don't know, what do you call it when vast swaths of the population are not considered fit for employment, regardless of their skills, or suitable to sit in the audience?

didn't anyone ever read what happened to the Arts under Stalin or Chairman Mao? obviously no one learns from history.

I'm very, very sorry for what you went through. What was done to you was criminal.

I'll admit, maybe torching the Broadway buildings is going a teensy bit too far. But as you describe so well, most members of the "arts community" instantly turned into the most aggressive, vicious, despicable totalitarian butt-wipes possible. They love drama, so they exploited this drama fully and turned themselves into the new Red Guards. And they haven't actually changed their attitude, they've just soft-pedaled the tactics and rhetoric temporarily.

I'm sure you and your BF also belong to the theatrical labor unions, which not only refused to protect their members from vaccine discrimination, they perpetrated more!

The Covid campaign is an ongoing crime against humanity, and nearly everyone in any position of authority in the arts has been an active criminal accomplice. It is essential that they be brought to justice.

The arts can no longer bring value to humanity when they reduce themselves to being mouthpieces for the global predator class. They've become another phony commercial for government authority and corporate greed.

Before covid, I was a frequent attendee of the performing arts, but I can no longer bring myself to buy a product from an industry with such a malignant, inhuman worldview.

You are absolutely correct: the "worst is yet to come". The cancers and autoimmune diseases are only getting started, and the "vaccine"-produced viral spikes are insidiously assembling amyloid proteins in the blood into those multi-foot-long fibrous white clot-things that embalmers are pulling out of the blocked blood vessels of the vaxxed. Unless people realize what has been done to them with the bioweapon shots and proactively take regular doses of Ivermectin (or something) to neutralize the spikes as they are manufactured, the damage will continue to build up until something kills them: blood clot, cancer, heart failure, stroke, infection, organ failure, etc.

The vaccine injured need to be treated! What about all the people that were disabled and died because of the vaccines!? The miscarriages! The infertility! The CANCERS! Strokes! Heart attacks! Heart damage in the young people! The list just goes on and on and on…

When are they going to start bringing awareness to all of these injuries and deaths and disabilities??!

Agree. Just the scale of it alone.

Even if only 5% of what we think is true, it still is the biggest CRIME in history.

It is a true medical nightmare… Our schools right now are covered over with flu and RSV… My husband is an elementary teacher. When they did their running in the gym the other day, about 1/3 of the kids were gasping for breath and coughing spasmodically. One little girl even was clutching her chest and complaining of heart pain…

Number one… My husband has been a elementary teacher for 25 years and this has NEVER happened. There are always one or two in every room that have asthma and such, but this scared him! 😱😱😱

Number two… There has never been this kind of sickness, flu, RSV… This early in the school year. usually all of this starts happening in January…

Number three… When is it normal for children to clutch their chest with heart pain? Another child was taken to the ER from school in an ambulance last week… No information was given out… this also has never happened in the last 25 years of his teaching.

Many of the teachers he works with are Vaxxed… Many are complaining of all kinds of ailments now, including a young teacher who is pregnant and now is being treated for heart problems. I hope she is able to carry the baby to term… 🙏🏽😢

I have never seen so many cancers on our church prayer list before… 🙏🏽😢

Like I said… MEDICAL NIGHTMARE!

My daughter's kindergarten teaching team.. one dead out of the blue, the other on permanent leave with heart problems. One of her friend's baby brother in the hospital with RSV. So far not a ton of sickness in her class that I've noticed. We unjabbed have been pretty healthy so far, just some sniffles.

My biggest problem with amnesty is they will turn around and blame covid for the incoming wave of every possible ailment and wave of death. We cannot allow them to just play as if science that worked wasn't there the whole time, and still not acknowledge it.

don't be silly. little children have ALWAYS dropped dead from heart attacks and strokes. happens all the time. you just never noticed before. maybe you were in a coma or something.

and we know what causes it- climate change, gardening, video games, not getting enough sleep, getting too much sleep, being excited that you got your degree, singing, acting. running, walking, playing- you know, the usual dangerous stuff that people shouldn't do if they want to stay alive

What percentage of his elementary students do you guess are jabbed? In the U.S. one study says 32% of 5-12. That would be a third of the class.

I wish I knew… according to our stats here in Alabama, our county is about 40% fully vaxxed (I wonder how many boosters is this now? 🤷🏽‍♀️). Anyway, my hubby said he has seen several children complaining of sore arms and feeling lousy from the killshot. I really wish we could get our hands on this information. As well as follow the health of these shot-up children in the future. Heart problems? Asthma? Autoimmune diseases?

I wish we had this information for the childhood vax schedule as well. Antivaxxed children and vaxxed kids and their health issues as time goes on.

BTW, I just bought the book, “Turtles All the Way Down.” It was recommended by Steve Kirsch about the childhood vaccine schedule. I want the time to delve into all of the information in this book. Personally I know 3 vaccine injured children… (injured from the normal vax schedule, not the Covid vax)…

Gee… it sure seems like these drug companies really don’t care about our health and well being… Go figure 🤦🏽‍♀️🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

40%, that's great, say compared to my county: 70%.

I just happened upon a tweet yesterday of a woman in her 50s who had just realized that the her infant who had died from SIDS likely died from vaccinations. She said she remembered saying, "he was just at the doctors' last week", and was also saying, "I poisoned him." It was so sad.

That's not what he's saying. What he's saying is that as bad as what was done to adults, it's far, far worse that the same things were done to children. Of all the people in our society, children are the most vulnerable and the most in need of protection: that children were sacrificed en masse on the altar of greed and vanity is appalling indeed.

I actually thought of the reparations issue as I was reading Oster's Atlantic piece.

Thank you for writing this and saving me time today.

People like myself battled Emily Oster on Twitter from the get-go. She was, indeed, comfortable and clueless.

What she and other pandemicists are missing is that they must

1. Confess to what they did, specifically and without excuse-making;

2. Acknowledge it was wrong, misguided, and hurt people;

3. Apologize;

4. Humbly ask for forgiveness;

5. (However possible), make restitution, and

6. Be forgiven.

Expand full comment

2a. Also acknowledge that the correct information WAS available from the start but was wrongly labelled misinformation and then censored. I don’t want all these apologisers saying they just didn’t know any better. Or worse, that no one knew any better. Because a bloody lot of us did and I’m not an “expert”.

Similar story here. We got through it, but these lies hurt a lot of my relationships. There need to be consequences.

Expand full comment

Until the last couple of weeks my position was: I will forgive anyone for any insult occurring over the past 2.5 years, as long as they appear sincere and use appropriate language (e.g. "Sorry for being such a fucking asshole"). But now that I see all these motherfuckers walking back their previous positions, some denying they held them, some accusing "others," some finally asking "why," I realize they've destroyed yet another important part of being human, namely forgiveness. They've debased the concept and are now using it as a weapon against honesty itself.

They "didn't know better" and were "frightened," so much that they could trivialize and marginalize anyone who asked questions. They re-invented the terms "misinformation" and "disinformation," they disinvited me because of my vaccination status, they called world-renown doctors and scientists quacks, they forced 100s of 1000s of people out of their jobs, and now these same pathetic pieces of shit are asking me to understand that they were scared and ignorant little cunts, that the devil made them do it.

So until the perpetrators, enablers, and cheerleaders are all arrested, tried, and punished appropriately for killing millions and destroying the world, I have two words for them, rhyming with "duck stew."

No justice, NO FUCKING FORGIVENESS.

Expand full comment

Unfortunately they will convince a lot of people that they meant no harm. Like all abusive people they put on the "humanity" mask when it suits them. They ask our forgiveness but they will keep digging up 15 year old posts by then-14-year-olds to destroy lives and careers. On one hand they plead humanity but on the other they preach hatred and division.

Don't believe them and don't cede a millimeter when talking to them. Nobody was more afraid than I was in March, 2020. They don't deserve forgiveness because they give none whatsoever. They don't deserve our understanding because they allowed their brains to be captured, and in 95% of cases their motivation was either Trump hatred or being part of the in-crowd.

They are not good people and no amount of sanctimonious blame shifting will change that.

Emily was clueless before the deep-state operation, clueless during it and will remain clueless until the moment her entire existence is called into question when billions demand justice for the endless lies, injures & deaths she helped cause. The brain-dead narcissism of the current generations is a spectacle to behold. 10,000 Emilys are not worth the myocarditis injury of one college age student in this nation.

Perhaps, at that final moment when she looks into a mirror and understands she is no better than any common genocidal sociopath, the reality of the scale of the crimes she has helped commit will dawn on her. Of course, I am sure there were many Nazis out there who were convinced their consciences were clean to their dying days. After all, they were just useful idiots following orders.
