So if you’ve been reading my posts you will know that we are being lied to every day all the time by government and medical “experts” and corporate media talking heads when it comes to the ‘vid. Here’s just another example. What’s really interesting is the criticism that is cited in the article coming from a group of hysteria-mongers. The basic story here is: Official lies claiming that a kid died from COVID, then got caught and had to recant her lie, then was attacked by a group that essentially said telling the truth was somehow a disservice because apparently it would take away from the hysteria (rightfully) whipped up by the initial lie. Sweet.
The article comes from the National Post out of Canada about two weeks ago and the headline reads (caps always mine for emphasis): “Dr. Deena Hinshaw apologizes and says Alberta teen DIDN’T ACTUALLY DIE FROM COVID”. Some text:
“Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta’s top doctor, has WALKED BACK the government’s previous claim that a 14-year-old had died of COVID-19... Hinshaw announced that a 14-year-old was one of 33 new COVID-19 deaths reported over the long weekend, but that the teen also ‘had complex pre-existing medical conditions that played a significant role in their death’… it would have made the 14-year-old the YOUNGEST Albertan to DIE OF COVID-19…with critics saying she was dehumanizing the child who died, and MINIMIZING his death by MENTIONING PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS... Rachel Notley, the leader of Alberta’s opposition New Democrats, wrote on Twitter… 'No matter what ‘pre-existing conditions’ they had, this child DIED DURING A FOURTH WAVE THAT WAS PREVENTABLE'…As it turns out, the child DID NOT, in fact, die of COVID-19…In a Facebook post, Simone Spitzer said the 14-year-old was her brother, and that he was DYING OF BRAIN CANCER, but had been diagnosed with COVID-19 TWO DAYS before his death… ‘He died from STAGE 4 BRAIN CANCER, NOT FROM COVID,’ Spitzer wrote, linking to a news story about the death. ‘This is FAKE NEWS.’... On Wednesday, Hinshaw CLARIFIED that while the initial report of the death of the child included COVID-19 as a ‘secondary cause,’ NEW INFORMATION indicated that COVID-19 WAS NOT the cause of death. She apologized directly to the family… Throughout the pandemic, Alberta has reported comorbidities alongside COVID-19 deaths; for example, nearly 83 PER CENT of those who have died from COVID-19 in Alberta also had hypertension. While such transparency is touted as a way to EXPLAIN THE RISKS — if you have certain health conditions, you’re at greater risk of severe illness or death from COVID-19 — CRITICS have suggested such information DOWNPLAYS the deaths.”
Couple things. Here’s just another story of the powers that be “misrepresenting” the facts. If this kid’s sister had not spoken up, everybody would “know” that a 14 year old boy (the YOUNGEST Albertan!) was killed by COVID. No “walking back” of any official statement would have ever happened. By the way, what EXACTLY was the “NEW INFORMATION” (kind of like the "evolving science") that informed the good doctor and the province that COVID was NOT the cause of death? She obviously knew the kid died. Did the death certificate fail to note the “STAGE 4 BRAIN CANCER” and somehow mistakenly indicate it was the ‘rona that killed this kid? How EXACTLY does that “mistake” happen? And if it was an “honest” mistake, what does that tell you about how sloppy and unreliable our record-keeping is? Terminal brain cancer is a pretty big “pre-existing condition” to forget while making sure to note the two day old COVID diagnosis. Also notice this crackpot Rachel Notley who doesn’t care about the truth of this boy’s death; all that’s important is that he DID die and it happened during a fourth “preventable wave”. So apparently, according to Alberta’s New Democrats, ANYBODY who has died in the last 20 months should be counted as a COVID death (say, I think we have some of that going on down here as well). And if you think ANY of this was “preventable” I have a bridge in Alaska to sell you. That is of course, unless you have a time machine and can go back to Wuhan in 2019 and capture that dastardly bat, (or was it a precocious pangolin?) that started this whole thing. And why wouldn’t such groups like the New Democrats want people to know what health conditions might place them at greater risk? How does that information “downplay deaths”? Shouldn’t the VAST MAJORITY of people understand that if you are even relatively healthy (that is, relative to the sickest segment of the population), your risk for serious COVID consequences is all but ZERO?
So here we have a story of the “experts” lying to us, getting caught, being forced to backtrack and recant their lie, and then being attacked by hysterical crackpots who want to whip up as much hysterical crackpottery as possible to keep people in fear – irrespective of the FACTS. Sounds like fun to me. By the way, how many “COVID deaths” that we all “know” about would fit very nicely into this same narrative? Asking for a friend…
Stop listening to the “experts” and talking heads. They’re all idiots and liars and don’t give a hoot about you. They really don’t. The only person responsible for your health is you. Start taking better care of yourself today. It’s worth it.
