You Know It’s Wrong, But You Are Going to Go Along Anyway

If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.

Thomas Jefferson

“It is easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled. “- Mark Twain

You know I am talking to you. I’m talking to all you sanctimonious arrogant people who look down on those who don’t agree to take the Covid vaccine or to mask their children or themselves. This is all about YOU. You and how you are supporting what you know is wrong.

When this Covid thing first started, they told us “14 Days to Flatten the Curve.” They told us this was the most awful, deadly, horrific virus ever in the history of mankind. I knew that was a lie, and so did you. How did we know? We knew because we have brains. There were too many contradictions, too much that didn’t make sense. If it was so bad, why were the fatality rates so low? Why did they put infected people in with old people at nursing homes? Why weren’t government officials sequestered in places to keep them from infection? Why weren’t people dying in the streets? Something seemed off.

Then, they locked everything down and told us to not wear masks, then to wear masks. But not real masks, little flimsy cloth masks and even neck gaiters. We were told to use hand sanitizer, wash hands frequently, and social distance. But, you could go to the grocery store and put your hands all over the stock and no one cared.

They closed “non-essential” and mostly small businesses while leaving the big players, Wal-Mart, Target etc. open. People who couldn’t work lost pay, but all in government jobs got paid without going to work. Some states stayed open and had low infection and death rates. Lockdown states had high infection and death rates.

And you knew it was stupid. But you did it anyway because they told you that you might kill grandma, even though you knew that was wrong too. Besides, they killed tons of grandparents and didn’t care.

As it dragged on, they told us they had this miraculous vaccine that they had developed in just a few short months. They didn’t really test it but they told us it was totally safe. Except it wasn’t. And over and over, they told us if we got the vaccine we could back to life as normal. They made commercials, they offered prizes, they made videos of famous people getting the shot, just to convince us all to get it. And we knew it was screwy.

You did too, but you just wanted to “get your life back.” So, you complied even though you heard about the terrible side effects for some. And you got mad when you found out you had been played for a sucker. You got mad at US, the ones who didn’t go along, even when you found out that the CDC faked the numbers, that they lied, that hospitals lied, all to get money.

Then they told you that you were safe. Then you weren’t. Then you could still infect others. And then, they made you wear a mask again. Even though infection rates and death rates were low, despite their efforts to inflate them.

Some of us never complied. And they scapegoated us. It was the unvaccinated people causing all the problems by not taking the vaccine that could harm or kill you but didn’t work. You started to think this was wrong.

But, your anger at being duped took over. And then you found out that all we needed to do was have vaccine passports keeping the unvaccinated separated from the vaccinated. Then we could go have fun again. And even the videos of high political and entertainment celebrities flaunting the rules didn’t dissuade you. You just pretended you didn’t hear or see it.

So when people made fun of the unvaccinated, you didn’t say a word.

When people blamed unvaccinated people for all recent infections, you didn’t say a word.

When people hoped unvaccinated people died, you didn’t say a word.

When people were given a choice between getting the jab or their job, you shrugged your shoulders.

You knew it was wrong, but, what the hell? You did as YOU were told, so why couldn’t we?

And now they don’t want the unvaxxed to have jobs, to go to entertainment events, to go to sporting events, to shop, to travel. In some cases, they can’t rent apartments or homes. And you know it is wrong.

See, it was wrong when Jews were blamed for Germany’s woes and were segregated. You know that. It was wrong when Blacks had to use different bathrooms, busses, schools, restaurants, etc. You know that. It’s wrong that the Chinese are forcing their people into a social credit system. It’s wrong that they are persecuting people for religious beliefs. You know that.

But, somehow, when people in THIS country reject the vaccine and are being punished for it by losing jobs and freedoms, you just turn your head and ask, “Why don’t they just get the vaccine? What’s the big deal?”

Let me explain to you what the big deal is. While the data is out there regarding deaths and life changing side effects, I suggest YOU look that up for yourself.

But, it is more than that. It’s about freedom. My freedom, your freedom, our children’s freedom. We have a right to make our own medical decisions. The Constitution guarantees it.

It’s also about thinking for myself, researching for myself, questioning the statements and motives of government officials and bureaucrats. I know, for a fact, that every person making decisions about our medical health in my county, have taken the CDC information as gospel without even listening to other medical professionals. They just want to get the vaccines to everyone and mask all the children to check that off their list of “things to do” and to get that federal and state money. It doesn’t matter if that hurts/kills people or not. In fact, I often think they KNOW that it is bad but they care more about their jobs, promotions, and personal power. Yes, I said it. Ignorance is bliss. Intentional ignorance is evil. The kind of evil Joe Biden is when he ignores his military advisors and pulls out of Afghanistan without protecting Americans and Afghan allies first. The kind of evil that defines the generals who allowed it happen. The kind of evil that gets 13 soldiers killed needlessly.

So, knowing what you do, knowing what they are doing to people, to children,knowing that at some point they will create a new ” medical segregation,” you are going to go along with all of it, aren’t you. You are going to ignore that little voice of reason inside you that tells you this is wrong. It’s just easier that way.

I won’t be able to go out to dinner. You will stand by and let it happen.

I won’t be able to get groceries. You will stand by and let it happen.

I will lose my access to my bank account, I will lose my home, I won’t get a driver’s license, I will have my social security and retirement taken away, and I will be excluded from society. I might even die from being refused medical treatment. If you don’t think these things can happen, look at Australia, Israel, France, China, and Canada. It’s happening there.

But, you will let it happen here because it will be ME, your neighbor, and not you who will suffer.

And then one day it WILL be you. Because you let it happen to ME.

And then the truth will hit you right in the face.
