Virus Politics: Public Health Experts Promote Black Lives Matter Protests, Reject Lockdown Protests

Virus Politics: Public Health Experts Promote Black Lives Matter Protests, Reject Lockdown Protests

“Their rules appear ideologically driven as people can only gather for purposes deemed important by the elite central planners”

If there were any lingering doubts that Democrat politics was at the bottom of the Wuhan coronavirus lockdowns in Democrat states and jurisdictions, they are out the window now.

Doctors and other medical professionals have stripped off the mask, so to speak, on the great public health fraud of 2020.  Forget social distancing, forget Wuhan coronavirus!  They are now urging everyone to join the swirling mobs of protesters, looters, vandals, arsonists, and murderers swarming the streets of cities across the nation.

The Wuhan coronavirus is nothing, they declare, compared to the health emergency that is racism.

Slate reports:

There has been a lot of concern on how the protests over the past several days may produce a wave of coronavirus cases. This discussion is often framed as though the pandemic and protests in support of black lives are wholly separate issues, and tackling one requires neglecting the other. But some public health experts are pushing people to understand the deep connection between the two.

Facing a slew of media requests asking about how protests might be a risk for COVID-19 transmission, a group of infectious disease experts at the University of Washington, with input from other colleagues, drafted a collective response. In an open letter published Sunday, they write that “protests against systemic racism, which fosters the disproportionate burden of COVID-19 on Black communities and also perpetuates police violence, must be supported.”

Politico has more on this need to ignore everything we’ve been told for months, the jobs lost, the livelihoods destroyed, the barbers and salon owners arrested for breaching stay at home orders.

The restaurant owners who had their licenses revoked because their being open created a profound risk to public health, the law-abiding citizens arrested for surfing alone, for being alone in parks, for being on playgrounds were all nothing but pawns in a disgusting political game aimed at tanking our economy ahead of a presidential election, harming good Americans for cheap fascist thrills, and ultimately, of course, hurting President Trump’s reelection chances.

For months, public health experts have urged Americans to take every precaution to stop the spread of Covid-19—stay at home, steer clear of friends and extended family, and absolutely avoid large gatherings.

Now some of those experts are broadcasting a new message: It’s time to get out of the house and join the mass protests against racism.

. . . .  The experts maintain that their messages are consistent—that they were always flexible on Americans going outside, that they want protesters to take precautions and that they’re prioritizing public health by demanding an urgent fix to systemic racism.

But their messages are also confounding to many who spent the spring strictly isolated on the advice of health officials, only to hear that the need might not be so absolute after all. It’s particularly nettlesome to conservative skeptics of the all-or-nothing approach to lockdown, who point out that many of those same public health experts—a group that tends to skew liberal—widely criticized activists who held largely outdoor protests against lockdowns in April and May, accusing demonstrators of posing a public health danger. Conservatives, who felt their own concerns about long-term economic damage or even mental health costs of lockdown were brushed aside just days or weeks ago, are increasingly asking whether these public health experts are letting their politics sway their health care recommendations.

. . . . “Their rules appear ideologically driven as people can only gather for purposes deemed important by the elite central planners,” Brian Blase, who worked on health policy for the Trump administration, told me, an echo of complaints raised by prominent conservative commentators like J.D. Vance and Tim Carney.

I have no words.

Okay, I have a few words because the cognitive dissonance is almost overwhelming.  Anyone not already a die-hard lunatic leftist has to be listening to this, watching this, and be utterly, to-their-bones appalled.  Normal Americans across this great nation who submitted to voluntary (and not so voluntary) home quarantines of perfectly healthy people must be experiencing one of the most profound epiphanies of their lives.  It was all complete . . . um, nonsense.

Politico continues:

Conservatives also have seized on a Twitter thread by Drew Holden, a commentary writer and former GOP Hill staffer, comparing how politicians and pundits criticized earlier protests but have been silent on the new ones or even championed them.

“I think what’s lost on people is that there have been real sacrifices made during lockdown,” Holden told me. “People who couldn’t bury loved ones. Small businesses destroyed. How can a health expert look those people in the eye and say it was worth it now?”

Some members of the medical community acknowledged they’re grappling with the U-turn in public health advice, too. “It makes it clear that all along there were trade-offs between details of lockdowns and social distancing and other factors that the experts previously discounted and have now decided to reconsider and rebalance,” said Jeffrey Flier, the former dean of Harvard Medical School. Flier pointed out that the protesters were also engaging in behaviors, like loud singing in close proximity, which CDC has repeatedly suggested could be linked to spreading the virus.

“Reconsider and rebalance”? Are you kidding me?

Nothing demonstrates the utter and complete hoax perpetrated upon the world like the sudden insistence that the Wuhan coronavirus has been “reconsidered” and “rebalanced” to now pose little to no threat to those protesting the just cause of police brutality, systemic racism, and blah blah blah.

How insidious and disgusting is this plot against the American people?

To prove that it’s no threat at all to join the “right” protests for the “right” reasons, medical professionals are donning useless masks (i.e. not N95 masks), standing shoulder to shoulder, and essentially mocking everything we’ve gone through as a nation for the past several months.  It’s stomach-churning disgusting on every single conceivable level.

And it’s infuriating to even one of the most even-tempered, rational, and benefit-of-the-doubt-giving people I know:

He speaks for millions of Americans who are watching this travesty taking place before our eyes.  These are bad people, and so are all of the people selling this snake oil to an American public who tried to do the right thing and then found out they’d been had by bad actors who put their political agenda ahead of the American people.

To trot out a trite but true observation:  If you aren’t mad as hell, you aren’t paying attention.

We don’t need the massive R&D efforts of the likes of Gilead, AstraZeneca, Roche, et al., all attempting to concoct coronavirus vaccines and treatments. Next time a novel pandemic comes along, we can just have hundreds of thousands of Dhimmi-crat jackbooted rioters and looters lay waste across the nation, as a cure. Much more efficacious and efficient.

Nice dropping of the F-bomb on the tweet, by the way, LI. Totally justified anger. These sentiments are shared by millions of Americans. The time for polite pushback against Dhimmi-crat totalitarianism, is over.

Is is any surprise that the allegedly “science”-revering Dhimmi-crats have now subverted medical practice and treatment, in service of Dhimmi-crat political ideology? These vile reprobates infect every institution and every facet of society that they touch, with their poisonous, totalitarian ideology.

A simple suggestion:

Bar every single person who signed off on this ideological and non-scientific paper from future:

1. Federal employment in their credentialed field
2. Eligibility to receive federal grant funds
3. Employment by private or public organizations that receive federal funding of any kind

This does not impact their ability to exercise their right to free speech. This simply removes the federal taxpayers subsidy of that speech.

You cannot cloak your ideology in the mantle of your medical and scientific credentials and expect to retain your credibility when the basic flaws and unserious nature of your ideological preferences outweigh clear scientific evidence.

    I agree completely.

    If you believe everything we have been told for months, these people are murderers.

    And these creeps are the same people who have been lecturing us, ordering us around and threatening to arrest us for months.

    They should all be fired at once–and no unemployment.

Think about all of the decent, hard-working, law-abiding small business owners (e.g., restaurant/bar owners, barbers and hair stylists, etc.) who were all vilified by the water-carrying, Dhimmi-crat media prostitute-propagandists, for merely wanting to open their businesses — with prudent distancing observed — to have some income and be able to pay their bills and take care of their families.

And, now, these jackbooted looters, rioters and race agitators are throwing “social distancing” out the window, while engaging in wanton and callous murder, mayhem and destruction, and the media is canonizing and lionizing them, for their efforts?

This is beyond delusion, or, run-of-the-mill partisan media bias. The LI tweet is correct — this is evil behavior.

    The authorities put you in jail for opening up your busienss, but not for those that burn it down.

    Those are shorty white coats used by medical students, interns and some residents…. mostly the former. A lot of the new generation of med students and especially residents live and act they have it made already. NOT EVEN CLOSE.

    A study on radiologists found that until around 10 years in practice, going off on a vacation initially lowered interpretive performance upon returning to work.

    “Trust me… I am a socially woke doctor”….. sure…

      guyjones in reply to alaskabob. | June 6, 2020 at 7:21 pm

      And, to top it all off, we know have — thanks to the Dhimmi-crats’ rabid Trump-hatred and attendant fanaticism — a new, exceedingly deadly phenomenon to deal with, something I call “politicized medicine” — doctors eschewing the use of hydroxychloroquine in treatment, and, downplaying its well-documented utility, in certain circumstances, merely because POTUS had expressed cautious hope that the substance might prove efficacious. Callous, evil and a total violation of the physician’s oath.

      Vilifying a drug, because of its alleged, fallacious political associations — Dhimmi-crat fanaticism, zealotry and irrationality, exemplified, now on display from a large number of physicians.

        how many life would have been save it HCQ was widely available, and people could take it as a prophylactic, then one of the new services had the audacity to India on how it should be done, but the problem is hcq is used there as a preventive to marlaria

          alaskabob in reply to ronk. | June 6, 2020 at 11:39 pm

          The Lancet had to retract the famous anti-hydroxychloroquine publication .. the one they all bashed Trump about. The authors refused to release their data. This was THE paper while others showed good results. Even testing for SARS years ago was good.

          Yes… woke scientists and anti-Trumpers lied and people died. Now protesting makes one immune. It does… to law and order.

          China has scored BIG on letting the virus out. They are reaping huge benefits from the Dems now.

and you want me to put my life in their hands every time I have to go to the hospital

By the way, if this stuff isn’t enough to get you mad, check out the vile Bernie Sanders advisor who dares to compare the “Anti-fa” thugs and jackboots to our WWII G.I.’s, on the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings:

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/06/06/bernie-sanders-foreign-policy-adviser-commemorates-d-day-as-largest-antifa-operation-in-history/

This isn’t merely brazen historical revisionism for self-serving political gain — this is an act of moral stupidity and evil whitewashing of a domestic terror outfit.

    alaskabob in reply to guyjones. | June 6, 2020 at 7:13 pm

    Yep….The Russian Front maybe. Capitalist countries landed on the beaches. But then, kicking out the National Guard from DC hotels…paid rooms…is covered by the 3rd Amendment.

      Milhouse in reply to alaskabob. | June 7, 2020 at 2:03 am

      The 3rd amendment does not apply whenever the USA is at war. Which it currently is.

        alaskabob in reply to Milhouse. | June 7, 2020 at 2:13 pm

        Milhouse…..The mayor and Left were stating the 3rd as justification to kick the Utah National Guard out of the hotel. Another make believe interpretation of The Bill of Rights. Yes we are in a state of war where DC is under control of a separatist regime foreign and in defiance. This district should be renamed New Harare to befit it’s political ideology.

          Milhouse in reply to alaskabob. | June 7, 2020 at 11:39 pm

          If they cited the 3rd, they’re wrong. The USA is currently at war with the entire Islamist terrorist network that in 2001 included al Qaeda. (Whether that declaration of war includes ISIS, which didn’t exist at the time, is an open question, but successive administrations have acted as if it did, and Congress has not chosen to challenge it.) Therefore the 3rd amendment is not in effect.

Fauci the Clown showed the scam just by being incredibly and ridiculously wrong.

You’ve got to hand it to the swamp/left/islamic axis, because they are marketing whizzes.

Imagine if the GOP hired them? But then, they don’t really want to win big and have the responsibility of governing. They just want to win ‘enough’ to get the goodies.

PDJT is also a marketing whiz.

Our young are turning out to be the biggest conformists ever. Pathetic, aren’t they? I used to love ’em before they became an army of useful idiots to the left. Karma is going to bite them in the ass: like an idiot inheriting a fortune, they are blowing the legacy of America that was awaiting them.

It profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world… But for some free sh*t?

College children posing for virtue, I presume.

There are benefits resulting from all of these lies:

1. If another virus appears from China during President Trump’s second term, and the ‘experts’ tell him to shut down the economy based on their modeler colleagues, he’ll get better experts including rational economists;

2. Virus or other excuse, tiny tyrants like our Whitmer, or Cuomo, Warren Wilhelm, Pritzger, Northam, et al. will find it impossible to force their will on the citizens, if they even survive their next election;

3. Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA have been exposed for what they are;

4. Democrat cities and States have been exposed for the Cesspits they are – they will lose taxpayers and businesses in droves – all richly deserved.

5. With any luck, Black citizens in some Democrat cities will experience the good life without police protection;

6. I’m sure I have missed some.

    This isn’t ‘black lives matters’ crap – this is an ENTIRE system of swamp/left/islamic revolutionaries – including the entire democrat party, and the likes of that jackass Mattis.

    We outnumber them, but we’ve got to dig in and prepare for the worst. We have a war-time leader in Donald Trump, so the odds are in our favor.

    But until Barr-Boehner stops the b.s. and finally indicts someone inside the swamp, we’re going nowhere.

    Job one when PDJT is relected: dump Barr-Boehner.

The featured tweet?

Remember Andrew Sullivan once had a dream – actually a nightmare – that he, Andrew, a gay misogynist dude, entered Sarah Palin’s garden gate and danced in her bluebell patch? Such subtle lewdness may only be found at The Atlantic.

And LI dropping the [sexual act] word in a tweet? Commenter [The Friendly Grizzy] will be most displeased with the lowering of social standards here at [expletive deleted] Legal Insurrection.

    Wow, maybe enjoy a nice cup of chamomile tea and try to relax?

    My money’s on Friendly Grizzly not being remotely offended in this instance. Sip your tea.

      You said the exact same thing to me after I complained about Milhouse getting down-vote bombed. That I should drink tea. You said Milhouse would never notice such trifling things.

      Low and behold, the very next day, Milhouse not only noticed getting down-vote bombed he publicly complained about it.

      But hey, I’m a non-tea drinking crank.

        Tiki, I recommend drinking tea for the same reason most people recommend anything: it works for me. If I were to find myself reading about an absolutely infuriating breech of trust, one that has bankrupted millions of Americans, and found myself focused on Professor Jacobson tweeting the word “fuck,” I would think, gee, maybe I am not quite getting this. Maybe my focus on minor details is a sign that I can’t quite see the big picture. Maybe sitting down with a nice cup of tea will help me get some perspective.

        But that may just be me. In the meantime, if Milhouse whinged about downvotes, shrug. Does it really matter? Does it really matter that I said he didn’t and then he did? I certainly don’t care, why do you? At all? Again, try to calm down and take a second. I do think that focusing on trivia is a good way to avoid the big picture, the things that really matter, but I’m not sure it’s always the best way to go. But that’s just me. You do you.

    Profanity does have it’s place, but it is RARE.

    The artfulness of writing passionately without the use of profanity is, well – artfulness.

    Unless you want to sound like street trash like al sharpton, keep it relatively ‘clean’.

    But enough of this bullsh*t.

      Last week I went on a f word carpet bomb rant. I dropped more bombs than the RAF ever dropped on Hamburg. And like the RAF, I over did it; the bomb shelters needed bomb shelters.

      And a commenter rightly complained about it.

Something that is being under reported / ignored, is the scale of the property damage / looting due to these riots. How many businesses are gone because of them. How many buildings burned? How many looted? How many police were injured? How many innocents injured by the mob? How many arrested, but not charged?

And just because a person has a white coat, does not make them an actual medical professional. That Picture of a supposed Nurse Blocking Traffic, that was caught on video being a stage photo op. The left is amazing at that type of stuff.

Viruses are notorious for favoring democrat driven protests. Viruses hate freedom oriented protests. Ask any virus if you don’t believe me.

    alaskabob in reply to Concise. | June 7, 2020 at 2:23 pm

    Supposedly African Americans…..Black Americans with African tribal heritage are more vulnerable to Wuhan. Who will they blame? Trump, China or “Italy”? Certainly, not themselves.

    In Africa, HIV was dubbed “The Great White Hope”.

I couldn’t have conveyed my thoughts and feelings on what has come to be the biggest hoax played on law abiding citizens of America any better than what was said in this L.I. post and Fuzzy’s expansion on insults and damages perpetrated by our elected.

    Our ‘elected’ are but a part of it. There is the unelected: treasonous bureacrats and the likes of susan rice, hillary clinton, mattis, bezos, gates, soros – none of whom were elected to anything.

    Then there is ChiCommm money corrupting our society: they weren’t elected to anything, either.

    Until Barr-Boehner gets off his ass and indicts someone inside the swamp… Ah, forget it.

    Job one when PDJT is re-elected: dump Barr-Boehner.

I think it’s time to name and shame these “experts”. We have the right to know who supports racist terrorist groups and not trust our lives to them if we choose.

WHO is now calling for the use of masks – https://nypost.com/2020/06/06/who-reverses-position-on-face-masks-as-coronavirus-cases-climb/

Sorry, but I will not have much sympathy for the medical field when they start demanding more money & PPE, relief personnel from other states, and our adoration of them.

There are a lot of rural and small city hospitals and doctor’s offices that may not make it back to help us with the next round. And after NYS is going to tax out-of-staters for coming to help, I sure hope that a lot of those medical personnel stay the heck away from NYC.

So, Floyd was using fentanyl. He was capable of disparate force. There is a question of motive to restrain him. Floyd tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, a probable spreader. Then the protestors carry out a warlock judgment and cause excess burdens across the nation. There is no evidence that diversity was a motive. #HateLovesAbortion

I’m totally confused, is my biggest worry supposed to be climate change, russian collusion, the wuhan virus or systemic racism?
I can’t keep up.

    The fact that you can’t keep up makes you a racist. Saying people are responsible for your own actions makes you a racist. Believing in the rule of law and civil rights makes you a racist. Having a pulse and breathing makes you a racist. Being composed of atoms makes you a racist. The very existence of the universe is racist.

    I hope that clear things up. If not, you are a racist.

There’s an election in November.

This is why it is hard to believe them when it comes to most anything.

nordic_prince | June 6, 2020 at 11:12 pm

My greatest astonishment is that it took so many people so long to figure out this whole virus nonsense was a hoax.

Too bad it took violence and riots to wake people out of their slumber.

Better late than never, though.

ChiComms for black lives matters! – Until you destroy the US, then the ChiComms take over, and treat blacks like monkeys.

Common sense matters, not high IQ. Low IQ doesn’t help, either.

    Who are the white nationalists in this case: the Chinese or the Africans? I have been assured by The Very Best and Brightest Persons in the History of the Universe (TM) that white nationalism is behind ALL racial discrimination.

      “Crybully” is a great word because it perfectly captures the type of person, increasingly ascendant in media, who uses emotional terrorism tactics to get what they want — which is to impose their will on everyone else using threats, manipulation, moral blackmail, and “shaming”

What if there isn’t a major bump in the Wuhan flu? We have hundreds of thousands of guinea pigs out there now. We should be thankful they blew right through all the restrictions imposed on the rest of us. Is this lockdown totally political now or is there still a threat? In two to three weeks we will have an answer.

The Attorney General of Massachusetts said you can’t grow a new forest without burning down the old. But it takes years and if the climate is bad…maybe never. Given the “value” placed on small business versus this riot, who isnt crushed or dumb enough to do it? There is no value for property rights in these states. You exist at the whim of the Central Committee. T

Public health experts don’t know any more about the causes of race-related violence than anybody else does. Expertise in epidemiology (and some of them are showing scant evidence of that, when they rely on GIGO computer models), does not transfer well to sociology.

    Milhouse in reply to Confutus. | June 7, 2020 at 10:11 am

    And this is the reason the CDC were banned from doing “research” into guns. They have no relevant expertise, but think they do. What they were producing was simply garbage propaganda, so Congress said they couldn’t spend public money on that and should stick to what they actually know how to do and what they were hired to do.

When the democrats started supporting getting rid Or defunding the Police, I think some people started getting scared. Biden is going senile. He won’t be able to stop the radicals from burning down everything.

I remember a few years back when Leftist spread the lie that military medics were not provide adequate medical treatment to ISIS members. Now we have medical professionals who are extremely biased and bigoted, and have already come out saying they won’t treat Trump supporters.

All these medical professional should resign. I think it’s horrendous they support a proven violent group, and support the murder of innocent people. Medical professionals are duty bound to do no harm, but here they are, supporting the killing of anyone who goes against their radical leftist beliefs and propaganda.

London mayor Khan pathetically tries
to suggest that Dominic Cummings’s visit to Durham is a bigger public health issue than the tens of thousands of protestors whom he and the police have allowed to ignore lockdown and social distancing rules.
