We’re Not Winning Against the Virus Derangement Cult. But We Sure as Hell Ain’t Losing

N-o-b-o-d-y is defecting to their side. Plenty are defecting to ours.

 

Compared to February 2020 we are far less free and some of the freedoms that we have lost we will likely not recover in our lifetimes. On the other hand, compared to March 2020 things have never looked better. We have not defeated the cult, but the anti-cult movement has never been bigger.

I don’t know of a single person who was anti-lockdown in March 2020 but later concluded that was a mistake and is now pro-cult. On the other hand, there are countless people who were lockdown boosters in March 2020 who have since gone completely silent. And others who initially went along with the Maoist madness tacitly, who are now openly against it, in word, and especially in deed.

We are growing stronger. Growing stronger does not equal winning, but it is also very distinct from losing.

From small beginnings

Recall the situation in March and April 2020. There were very few demonstrations against the lockdown insanity and only in the (midwestern) United States. Even these were shy affairs with only a few hundred libertarians and gun-rights types in attendance. There was absolutely no anti-lockdown voice in the corporate media (of the type Tucker Carlson became later), and even in the alternative media one half of it was boosting hysteria and shilling for lockdowns, and much of the rest kept “wisely silent”.

It is still incredible to me just how sweeping the hysteria and conformism were in those early days. Just how small was the remnant that had kept its wits. How few were the voices speaking against it.

To say it was a tiny movement back then would not capture it. For one to be an anti-lockdowner in March of 2020 was downright l-o-n-e-l-y.

So shy was the early protest than in the few earliest ones many of the participants never exited their vehicles

Since then early ideological lockdown shills, like Moon of Alabama, have largely shut up about COVID altogether and barely ever write about COVID issues one way or the other. And early click-bait alarm raisers, like Zero Hedge, have flipped the script entirely, no longer raising alarm about a deadly new plague, but about tyrannical governments instead.

Additionally, many voices who were initially silent for a very long time have since started to criticize the cult, often quite radically so. Glenn Greenwald, Matt Taibbi, Max Blumental, Michael Tracey come to mind. Even Caitlin Johnstone, a long a self-professed agnostic on all things COVID, penned something the other day that crosses over into a fairly strong attack on the Australian zero-COVID state.

They were not with us in the trenches when the situation was the grimmest and skies darkest, but the struggle for freedom is far from over, and it is good to have their talents and influence on the side of reason, humility, and dignity from now on.

At the same time, special recognition and appreciation has to go to people who were able to recognize the insanity from the start. That means you, the readers of Anti-Empire.

The site was definitely not focused on domestic affairs in North America and Europe but the insanity, the totalitarianism and the lethality of the virus doomsday cult was just too great not to speak out against it and try fighting it tooth-and-nail from day one. As I put it at the time, the occupation had come home.

This cost the site some regular readers whom the anti-megalomania coverage rubbed the wrong way,  but if you’re reading this you weren’t among them.

March 2020 was a once-in-a-lifetime test, and we who didn’t fall for either the hysteria or the conformity and deference, we are the ones who passed.

If you ever wondered if you would have kept your head when all about you were losing theirs — well now you know.

Thank you! Thank you for your loyalty to the site, and thank you even more for being part of the sanity remnant at the time when we were so ridiculously outnumbered.

This is going to take far longer than anyone expected but we are only growing stronger with each passing day and we are going to win.

Except what does our political system do?

At least a year of medical malpractice (if you ignore the Chinese treating hospitalised patients with intravenous Vit C from the start and such), hundreds of thousands dead from the bioweapon, millions injured.

They are going to sink the markets to divert from their failures, just like they did to the economic problems of winter 2020 with covid.

It ain’t getting better, it’s not even gotten bad yet.

Zerohedge and Moon of Alabama were my go to sites years ago. Then all of the sudden they flipped. Guessing the reason,,,Advertisers on ZH and commenters on MA.

ZH admitted they banned some at the behest of google,,, MA commenters were mostly leftists and like farcebook/twatter got many banned. Must be boring as hell on these sites now that everyone is of the same opinion.

Anti Empire has been patient regardless of stance on hot subjects and is now the only site I recomend and contribute to.

In my opinion,,, we stand a good chance of getting freedoms back in excess of those lost in this war on who owns your body.

Well said, we can never stop fighting, what choice do we have?
The alternative at this point is death; I’ll die with my boots on, sorry Covidians but we’re not the ones forcing our beliefs on you.

BE VERY, VERY AFRAID !!! There’s a Hitler under every rock. Stalin has been reincarnated, and is breeding a race of super models to corrupt the morals of young men. Worst of all Mao is patiently waiting in your toilet bowl to snatch the low hanging fruit. .

hyperbole–pretentiousness perhaps, or political confusion

“Moon of Alabama”

This guy epitomizes incoherence.

He he excoriates the Rockefeller foreign policy blob, but then bows and scrapes to the WEF- Bill gates blob. He hates the deep state foreign policy interventionists, but loves the medical deep state interventionists. They are the exact same bunch of interventionists, on the same team. Both are anti-liberty and anti-individual to the core.

Kill Bill gates of hell, best buddy of Maxwell Epstein pedovore in chief and Mossad kiddy porn director along with filthy Swi$$ money laundry and spawn of genuine kosher German Nazis, the Hollyweird central casting SS cutout lout aka Satan Klaus Slob, Rothschild bagman geriatric peddler of fellow Jews to Nazis, the inimitable Gyorgi “Soros” all these demons would have you believe that their Tony Jaws Fauci and his Fort Detrick (debt trick) Wuflu virus has it all sewn up and you are nothing more than a redundant head of tax cattle down on Rancho Goyim, USSA soon to be slaughtered for the greater good of the zero 1% reptilian slime that imagines it has “inherited the earth”.

The great r€$et my ass. The entire scam is falling apart as quick as you can say Pfizer macht frei and nothing on this Earth is going to save their mountains of fiat filth IOU Saudi Mercan petroscrip toilet paper dollahs and gimp bastard €urodollah or their evil genocidal asses in the coming Nuremberg reloaded. The Wall St shitter is about to blow their Ponzi sewer to hell and all the fake covaids and DARPA mRNA death pricks won’t put Humpty Dumpty together again when the tsunami of toxic derivative shit washes over Slumville and the rest of the anglozionazi empire of filth. Simply by staying unjected we win when the millions of vaxxed sheeple start falling like dominoes in the months ahead; Dark Winter comes with a vengeance. Then guess how long the vertical pigs and uniformed mutts slurping their swill for now at the elitist trough along with rancid politcal swine and craven presstitute hos will cover for the cabal of reptilian scum that unleashed this vile insanity on the planet. These porcine scum will have their own offspring croaking like flies and even pigs and sheeple finally understand the stench of mass slaughter the nearer they come to the slaughterhouse erected by the reptilian alien slime now running planet moron.

There’s going to be a lot of entitled, hubris bloated elitist garbage dangling from lampposts in the years ahead and nothing is going to stop the stampeding poisoned sheeple from taking grisly revenge when the herd finally grasps the totality of their stupidity and the enormity of their betrayal at the hands of our “Western democratic”
kakistocracy. Forget about the ravings of trans slash humanist oddball geriatric retards and their great psychopathic “reset” and get ready for the greatest flush of demented loons that humanity has ever seen in its sorry history of depravity at the hands of gubermint puss and the ghouls that wallow in it.

YOU are the disease, their covaids death prick the cure

Onward to Ouch Witz; the joke is on all of US

Pfizer macht frei
Same as it ever waZ

The covaid$ Caper in under 2 minutes
