It was 15 days to slow the spread. We were going to bend the curve so we had time to ramp up hospital supplies to deal with the pandemic. At the time of this writing, we are more than 190 days into the lockdown. Every time a governor or local politician has eased up the slightest bit on restrictions, economies boomed, people prospered, and there were no surges of coronavirus.
These lockdowns are illegal. They’re harmful. They’re the living embodiment of everything we have ever feared from the communists in this country. They’re also not unique to America.
The media wants you to believe that you’re denying science for hating the restrictions. They want you to think you’re the only one. You’re not. The lockdowns exist across the world, and they are hated in every country where they have been implemented. Looking at just a few examples, you’ll see that this is a global problem after all. Leftists are hurting people in every country, but good people fight back every time. You’re not alone. The whole world is with you. Here’s proof.
This weekend, Berlin had a huge protest. Tens of thousands showed up to petition the government to end stifling coronavirus restrictions. Also just like in America, counter-protesters showed up to cause trouble. The media smeared the lockdown protestors as Nazis. The demonizing of conservatives is happening everywhere.
For Germany, this wasn’t the first protest. There have been a few dozen since summer, and all had tens of thousands of attendees. This won’t be the last protest either.
It would be fun to list every country where massive protests are fighting against lockdowns, but that would take too long. There’s an entire Wikipedia entry on the topic (although it demeans the protests as you would expect).
Protests have had substantial traction in more than 30 countries and on every populated continent. Plenty of these protests happened under authoritarian rule where protesting itself is illegal. China won’t say how many protesters they have arrested, but you can bet it’s a high number.
Spain was one of the worst-hit countries in the world on this thing. They have had thousands protesting on repeat. The U.K. might as well have looked like another U.S. state, their protests have been so widespread. The entire world is against these lockdowns. When the media portrays it as a uniquely right-wing American sentiment, they’re lying.
This brings us back to America. We’ve had countless protests across our country. There’s one in particular that you need to know about. Health experts in our country have rallied together in a petition to end lockdowns. The petition has been endorsed by 73,000 healthcare workers. That number includes 3,200 public health research scientists, about 5,000 practicing physicians, and countless other doctors, data processors, nurses and all the rest.
The petition was started by researchers at Stanford and Oxford, and they all cried out in the same voice. These lockdowns are doing much more harm than good. It’s time for them to end.
If 73,000 healthcare workers agree with this, maybe it’s time we took back the narrative and pointed out how anti-science these lockdowns are. It’s time to re-enter the fight with renewed vigor.
