A question being asked frequently in articles and comment threads on COVID 19 responses  at mainstream media website in UK, USA Canada and Australia  is: “Why will conservatives not wear masks to stop the spread of COVID – 19 coronavirus?

This usually triggers a storm of accusations from ‘the left’ suggesting that conservatives are too selfish to care about the wellbeing of fellow citizens.
Has the Covid-19 crisis blown apart the psychological theory that pathogen avoidance conservatism is an evolutionary response and conservatives are more likely to be concerned with  individual freedom while ‘progressives’ think in terms of group survival?It’s bollocks of course, but there is some truth in the suggestion that people on the Left tend to be more in favour of lockdowns, social distancing and mask-wearing, while those on the Right are more likely to think that shutting down the economy will do more harm – and perhaps even cost more lives in the longer term.

This would seem to contradict the theory that behavioural tendencies associated with the Right evolved as a response to the threats. On the assumption that strangers, as well as arriving in wooden horses and armed to the teeth, are more likely to carry pathogens for which tribe members have no immunity, the idea is that xenophobia (literally, “fear of the foreign”) developed as an avoidance mechanism.

But maybe there is another factor that should be considered. Conservatives and libertarians (while being sure the pandemic is a hoax I object to being described as a conservative,) are generally more independent minded and thereforer more likely to have questioned the official narrative and found that for every piece of scaremongering pseudo science trumpeted by mainstream media, there is another, properly conducted and fully documented research project that has produced a contradictory result.

And because of our sceptical, questioning nature we are more likely to have learned that the risk to life from this relatively mild virus is negligible: statistically under 70s have more chance of perishing from a road accident. Therefore suppression is likely to be counterproductive exerting positive selection pressure to enable the spread of more deadly strains: if everyone else is confined the only places where the virus can spread are the hospitals/care homes where people are dying.

This has been argued by any number of professionals – they’re just ignored by media, eg Dr Knut Wittkowski. As Dr Wolfgang Wodarg put it: ‘The emperor has no clothes’, i.e. CV-19 is just another ‘corona’ shaped respiratory virus but with global PR.

Seasonal death rates have been higher in recent years, the 2014 / 15 flu season being an example, yet there was no lockdown, no mandatory mask wearing or trashing of economies,  and nobody panicked. There was no reason in principle why such “deaths” weren’t just as unacceptable as deaths from COVID 19, five years later ‘ or why we shouldn’t have ‘cared’ or worn masks in those years. Even more surprising, why are we not being retrospectively castigated for not ‘saving lives’ by putting entire populations under house arrest in the way we are being castigated now for the historical atrocity that was the slave trade.

We’ve always taken it for granted that some old or otherwise infirm people will perish in flu season while the majority who are infected will merely be out of action for a few days however unpleasant that might be.  I’m old myself but would sooner be free to roam than be guaranteed life in confinement even if it’s ‘only a mask’.

If a virus isn’t deadly surely it’s better to be infected and thereby gain immunity, although for balance I have to mention that some research has shown antibody immunity lasstsonly a few weeks in the case of this virus – which would make the current efforts to rush through the development of a vaccine useless.

We know that respiratory viruses evolve else we couldn’t get cold/flu more than once. We used to have German Measles (Rubella) parties when I was a child for that reason, because the same virus is harmless in children but dangerous later in life – were we ‘left wing’?.

The logic of letting the disease run its course is identical. It’s hard to fathom how otherwise intelligent people can’t comprehend that. On the other hand professional journalists/’scientists’ in our world are de facto propagandists and bound to calibrate their opinions according to the wishes of whoever is paying them.

In fact the published opinions of some scientists contradict their own published work. But the virus has become a political rather than a health issdue: viz the way using HCQ (quinine) in conjunction with zinc and vitamin D supplements has been demonized as quackery in the USA since President Trump spoke in favour of it, while in many nations where Trump is not president it has proved a very effective treatment in relieving symptoms, though it is not a cure. Like ‘carbon’ or Diversity, around which identical ‘globalist’ interests have coalesced, COVID – 19 is now part of the right / left dichotomy and therefore the debate is no longer grounded in reality.

What should dismay us  is they way so many people have so readily surrendered their  their capacity for independent and critical thinking when it comes to this. there is the group trying to control everyone and their enablers, useful idiots, and the rest.

What is becoming obvious to me at least is that while COVID – 19 is now a political rather than a health issue, the terms left and right have become more meaningless than ever. This is now the issue that is dividing us into the fearful who, terrified by an invented risk, are willing to trade independence for the illusion of security provided by an authoritarian state and those who prefer to think for themselves, act on their conclusions and take personal responsibility for their decisions.

US TV News Veteran Quits, Admits “Media Are a Cancer and There is No Cure”

Summit News

MSNBC tv producer Ariana Pekary explained that the reason for her deciding to quit her job was that the mainstream media blocks “diversity of thought” in favor of promoting hysterical voices for ratings and that a TV veteran admitted to her “we are a cancer and there is no cure.”

Pekary, who was an “integral member” of Lawrence O’Donnell’s primetime show, says that the media’s obsession with Trump is actually costing lives because it is preventing reasoned discussions about how to fight the coronavirus pandemic.

“This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic. The primary focus quickly became what Donald Trump was doing (poorly) to address the crisis, rather than the science itself. As new details have become available about antibodies, a vaccine, or how COVID actually spreads, producers still want to focus on the politics. Important facts or studies get buried,” Pekary explained.

The former producer also revealed that a “successful and insightful TV veteran” acknowledged to her that, “We are a cancer and there is no cure,” adding, “But if you could find a cure, it would change the world.”

Pekary also highlighted how the very model by which the corporate press is structured guarantees that voices of dissent are silenced and objective analysis censored in favor of hysterical political extremists, something that has come to fore over the last two months with the media’s relentless promotion of Black Lives Matter narratives.

Prejudice Against Conservative and Pro-Brexit Academics Killing Free Speech on Campus

This blog and its associates have long championed free speech as one of the foundations of a democratic society. Recently it has seems the establishment were intent on surrendering our right of free speech to the prejudice and bigotry of the ‘woke’ brigade.
But something resembling resistance seems to be stirring.

CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS - JULY 08: A view of a gate to Harvard Yard on the campus of Harvard University on July 08, 2020 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Far left bias has created a “chilling effect” in British academia which is forcing conservative and pro-Brexit academics to self-censor on campus, a report has found.

A report from the Policy Exchange think tank found that many conservatives in higher education feel there is a “hostile climate” for their political beliefs in their departments. A survey of educators found that 44 per cent of ‘fairly right’ and 63 per cent of ‘very right’ academics felt that the political climate has impacted what they teach or research.

This is compared to just 8 per cent of those who consider themselves ‘fairly left’ and 16 per cent for those claiming to be ‘very left’.

In partnership with YouGov, the report sampled 820 academics, of whom 484 are currently working in the university system and 336 are retired educators.

The report also found that the chilling effect extended to students, with just 39 per cent of pro-Brexit students feeling comfortable to share their political opinions on campus, compared to 89 per cent of Remain-supporting students.

Trevor Phillips, the former chairman of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, told The Times that he found the report’s findings “deeply disturbing”.

“No one fought for diversity and inclusion in order to create universities staffed by a faculty who may look representative, but are to all intents and purposes, intellectually identical robots,” Philips said.

The government’s universities minister, Michelle Donelan, added: “It is deeply concerning the extent to which students and academics with mainstream views are being silenced and discriminated against in our universities.” … Continue reading >>>

2020: The Year Freedom Died

The ‘woke’ have won – it’s too late for our unis if academics need to hide their views

‘Problematic’ university professors are too afraid to share their views – how about we cancel overly-sensitive students instead?

Opinions. They’re tricky things. “Problematic”, to use the PC buzzword of the day. People have different ones, for a start, which is not ideal. But still more problematic are the side-effects. Opinions make you think, question, evaluate and re-evaluate. They open up your mind and expand your horizons – in a climate when minds should be sealed shut and horizons close enough to touch. No wonder British academics are giving up on them.

Over the past decade, campuses have increasingly put pressure on professors and lecturers to censor themselves and their teaching material, but a You Gov report released yesterday suggests that right wing academics are feeling this pressure most strongly. Whilst both right and left-leaning university faculty members admitted to believing that the airing of political opinions might adversely impact their career prospects (cancel culture doesn’t discriminate), a poll of 820 academics found that nearly a third — 32 per cent — of those with right-wing views had completely stopped airing opinions in either their teaching or research, compared with 13 per cent of those in the centre and on the left. (OK, so it discriminates a bit – but for the greater good).

I was amazed only 32 per cent of these academics were keeping it zipped, until I realised that 336 of those who responded to the poll were retired, and that the real figure was likely to be twice that. After all, every day some public (or private) figure foolish enough to air their views on politics, gender or any other trigger topic has their scalp held up in trophy-hunting-style warning to anyone thinking of doing the same.

These transgressors don’t just lose their jobs either, as the former New York Times journalist Bari Weiss pointed out at the weekend (having herself been ‘cancelled’ for her opinions) but are rendered “radioactive” in an act she called “social murder.”

So what’s in the opinion-airing game for academics? On a good day: nothing. On a bad one, you’d get passed over for a promotion or sacked, have your publisher pull out of every forthcoming book deal, and be forced to walk up and down the country for eternity with the scarlet letter ‘T’ (for ‘toxic’) emblazoned on your back. It’s enough to make anyone think twice about making that casual Brexit quip … Continue reading >>>

Google Blacklists Conservative Websites in New Censorship Move

SOPA Images/Getty Images

Google search has blacklisted numerous major conservative websites by removing them from results in what appears to be a major new censorship purge.

Breitbart, the Daily Caller, Infowars, Human Events and Red State are all missing when a user searches directly for those websites on Google.com.

Some of the sites have small link from their Wikipedia bio on the right hand side, but are absent from main search results.

Searches for direct headlines from the same outlets also return either nothing or links to corporate media news stories.

The fact that the purge has happened less than four months before the presidential election once again makes a mockery of Google’s claim to be non-bias.

Back in 2018, Google CEO Sundar Pichai responded to claims that staff had gamed search results to display a pro-immigration bias by asserting, “We do not bias our products to favor any political agenda.”

During a subsequent House Judiciary Committee, Pichai again claimed that Google’s policy was non-partisan.

With Google apparently blacklisting a raft of major conservative websites, those claims now appear to be farcical.

We shouldn’t be too shocked however given that during Google’s first all-staff meeting following the 2016 election, the company vowed to do everything in its power to stop Trump winning again.

US Election: 3 in 4 Republicans afraid to share views due to toxic political climate

Authored by Ivan Pentchoukov via The Epoch Times,

A growing number of Americans feel that the political climate is preventing them from sharing their views, according to a new survey by the Cato Institute.

The institute surveyed 2,000 Americans and found that 62 percent are reluctant to share their views due to the political climate. In 2017, 58 percent of people surveyed expressed the same opinion.

Republicans are much more likely to be afraid to share their opinions than Democrats and independents, the survey found. More than 3 in 4 Republicans—77 percent—said they are afraid to share their views compared to 52 percent of the Democrats and 59 percent of the independents.

The reluctance to share one’s views appears to grow as respondents shift right on the political spectrum, the survey found.

Compared to 2017, the reluctance to share one’s views increased across the political spectrum. Liberals, moderates, and conservatives were all 7 percent more likely to be afraid to express their opinions.

The increase in reluctance was more pronounced among strong liberals, rising 12 points to 42 percent, compared to 2017. Reluctance to share their views among strong conservatives notched up 1 point to 77 percent.

“This suggests that it’s not necessarily just one particular set of views that has moved outside of acceptable public discourse,” Emily Ekins, research fellow and director of polling at the Cato Institute, wrote about the survey.

“Instead these results are more consistent with a ‘walking on eggshells’ thesis that people increasingly fear a wide range of political views could offend others or negatively impact themselves.”

The self censorship cut across demographic groups as well, with roughly 2 in 3 Latino Americans and white Americans and nearly half of African Americans holding views they are afraid to share. More men (65 percent) than women (59 percent) said the political climate prevents them from speaking their mind.
