… I told you so!
“You have to follow the science!” they all cried.
“This virus can survive on surfaces for up to 6 hours the scientists declared!”
Then, later, they said, “Well, the virus really doesn’t live long on surfaces or gets transferred that way as a rule.”
Then we have the whole mask thing. For months, scientists said wearing a mask was required…, then they said the benefits from wearing a mask were debatable.
But now we hear Science’s piece de resistance.
Now we get Science’s great big “oooops.”
“The asymptomatic spread of coronavirus is ‘very rare,’ The World Health Organization (WHO) says.”
OH, NO, those words just didn’t come out of some WHO doctor/expert/scientist’s filthy mouth!
William Feuer and Noah Higgins-Dunn of CNBC report that, “Preliminary evidence from the earliest outbreaks indicated the virus could spread even if people didn’t have symptoms.”
“But the WHO says that while asymptomatic spread can occur, it is ‘very rare.’”
So, let me get this straight.
We shut down our economy, we lost 40 million jobs, we spent trillions and trillions of dollars, we imprisoned ourselves for months, we were kept from contact with loved ones in the hospital, we were kept from contact with our loved ones when they died, we were not allowed to gather for weddings, funerals, graduations…, because of something that occurs “very rarely?”
I mean, people were viewed as potential murderers for daring to walk around without a mask…, all because people were misled by the “scientists/doctors/experts.”
Like I said…, I hate to say “I told you so,” but I told you so.
If you refer to my prior blogs about the virus, you’ll see I was skeptical about the Armageddon-like media hype and propaganda from the very beginning.
Following common sense is always preferred to following “science.”
We see proof of this again, and again, and again.
I hate to blow my own horn, but I knew this day would come and that I would be able to call out the liberals and their scientists/doctors/experts for what they really are…, SCAM ARTISTS and LIBERAL TOOLS.
Please note that global warming/climate change crowd has their own collection of scientists/doctors/experts who really are SCAM ARTISTS and LIBERAL TOOLS, as well. Just thought I’d throw that in there.
OK…, back to the virus!
‘“Coronavirus patients without symptoms aren’t driving the spread of the virus,’ World Health Organization officials said Monday, casting doubt on concerns by some researchers that the disease could be difficult to contain due to asymptomatic infections.”
‘“From the data we have, it still seems to be rare that an asymptomatic person actually transmits onward to a secondary individual,’ Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, head of WHO’s emerging diseases and zoonosis unit, said at a news briefing from the United Nations agency’s Geneva headquarters. ‘It’s very rare.’”
Well, thank you Dr. Van Kerkhove…, thank you very much.
And what the hell is “zoonosis,” anyway?
I’ve never heard of this before, so I looked it up. It turns out “zoonosis” deals with “diseases which can be transmitted between humans and animals.”
Anyway…, ‘“What we really want to be focused on is following the symptomatic cases,’ Van Kerkhove said. ‘If we actually followed all of the symptomatic cases, isolated those cases, followed the contacts and quarantined those contacts, we would drastically reduce’ the outbreak.”
So, governments and people should be treating this disease just like we treat every other disease, huh?
Hmmm, that’s odd.
“More research and data are needed to ‘truly answer’ the question of whether the coronavirus can spread widely through asymptomatic carriers,’ Van Kerkhove added.”
The old cry of the scientists/doctors/experts that “more research and data are needed!”
Again…, that’s odd!
Because we all know, there can NEVER be enough research and there can NEVER be enough data.
“If asymptomatic spread proves to not be a main driver of coronavirus transmission, the policy implications could be tremendous.”
And like I said before, could these “implications” include:
Shutting down our economy?
Losing 40 million jobs?
Spending trillions and trillions of dollars we don’t have?
Imprisoning ourselves for months?
Being kept from contact with loved ones in the hospital?
Being kept from contact with our loved ones when they died?
Being not allowed to gather for weddings, funerals, and graduations?
All because of something that occurs “very rarely?”
Somebody please give William Feuer and Noah Higgins-Dunn the coronavirus booby prize of the month!
“Tell ‘em what they’ve won, Chuck!”
“Well, Mr. Erickson…, William Feuer and Noah Higgins-Dunn have won an all-expenses-paid trip to Wuhan, China…, the birthplace of the virus!
“That’s exciting, Chuck! Maybe we could afford to send some of our liberal mayors and blue state governors along with them…, you know, as like a consolation prize?! And we could send a fake news media entourage along as well to cover the whole thing!
Aren’t I just loaded with good ideas?!
Please help me promote myself, Mr. Erickson, as a potential senior advisor in President Trump’s next administration…, so I can help President Trump make America great again!
