What We Learned from Hating the Unvaccinated

What We Learned from Hating the Unvaccinated

The battlefield is still warm, following Canada’s war on the unvaccinated. The mandates have let up, and both sides stumble back into something that looks like the old normal—except that there is a fresh and present injury done to the people we tried to break. And no one wants to talk about it.

Only weeks ago, it was the admitted goal of our own leaders to make life unlivable for the unvaccinated. And as a deputized collective, we force-multiplied that pain, taking the fight into our families, friendships, and workplaces. Today, we face the hard truth that none of it was justified—and, in doing that, uncover a precious lesson.

It was a quick slide from righteousness to cruelty, and however much we might blame our leaders for the push, we’re accountable for stepping into the trap despite better judgement.

We knew that waning immunity put vast numbers of the fully vaccinated on par with the shrinking minority of unvaccinated, yet we marked them for special persecution. We said they hadn’t “done the right thing” by turning their bodies over to state care—even though we knew that principled opposition to such a thing is priceless in any circumstance. And we truly let ourselves believe that going into another ineffectual lockdown would be their fault, not the fault of toxic policy.

And so it was by the willful ignorance of science, civics, and politics that we squeezed the unvaccinated to the degree that we did.

We invented a new rubric for the good citizen and—failing to be one ourselves—took pleasure in scapegoating anyone who didn’t measure up. After months of engineered lockdowns, having someone to blame and to burn simply felt good.

So we cannot hold our heads high, as if believing we had logic, love, or truth on our side while we viciously wished death upon the unvaccinated. The best we can do is sit in the awareness of our rabid inhumanity for having cast so many aside.

Most of us who pilloried the noncompliant did it because it seemed like certain victory, like the unvaccinated would never make it through unbroken. Indeed, the promised new normal looked unbeatable, so we sided with it and made punching bags out of the holdouts.

But betting against them has been a scathing embarrassment for many of us who’ve now learned that the mandates only had the power we gave them. It was not through quiet compliance that we avoided endless domination by pharmaceutical companies and medical checkpoints at every doorway. It was thanks to the people we tried to tear down.

So for those of us not among the hopeless few that pray for the return of mandates, we might find some inner gratitude for the unvaccinated. We took the bait by hating them, but their perseverance bought us the time to see we were wrong.

It seems right now like the mandates will return, but this time there’s hope that more of us will see them for what they are: a rising authoritarianism that has no concern for our wellbeing. If there’s an enemy, it’s the confidence game of state power and the transparent attempt to tear us apart. Heeding that looks like our best shot at redemption.

And the industry is going to take advantage of the crack we have shown in our foundation.

    Excellent article. And may I say, the same cruel treatment towards parents regarding vaccinations for children remains in full vigor. Especially from physicians and their office nurses. The fight goes on !!! There may be a few vaccines worthwhile but I believe that most cause more harm than protection…..and if we know it, big pharma does too.

    The battlefield is not only warm, it is still hot. In Canada our totalitarian Trudeau government continues to mandate that un-inoculated individuals WILL NOT travel on public transportation such as planes, trains, long-haul buses and ships to travel within or out of Canada
    Not only that, but there is talk that he will mandate boosters for public employees.
    We still have people driving by them self in their own vehicle wearing a mask. That gives you some idea of the grip that these lies have on the minds of too many members of our population.

    A not dissimilar situation in Melbourne, Australia where we also have a government on the left side of politics. Right now, we are largely free of mandates (it’s election time), but as winter bites and the government is likely to be re-elected, I fully expect the discrimination to continue. Stay strong people!

    That goes for Public Health Nurses and School Nurses who also seem to put trust in government overreach. I speak from experience being a school nurse in California for over 30 years and now retired. After having the wisdom to finally research vaccines and COVID not making any scientific sense, my view on any vaccine has made a 180 degree turn. I can’t belief I did not do my research earlier in my career. Being a free thinker has made me a better person, nurse and advocate for anti-vaccers!

    For those willing to sacrifice the COVID shot refusers, I suggest you grow a backbone because you will need it. The government will continue to escalate its demands for compliance and sooner or later there will be a demand that YOU will not want to comply with, and then it will be your turn to face sacrifice. I’d wish you good luck in the New World Order, but luck will get you nowhere in the New Normal. You will be just as disposable as the next Useless Eater. Nobody will save you.

    In case you have not yet heard, “You cannot comply your way out of tyranny.” I don’t know who said that, but give it some thought.

    There wasn’t anything righteous about the treatment of those who didn’t comply. The same people who were quick to turn on people they were related to, worked with or were friends with are the same people who have bowed down to government dictates in the past. The mustached master who said that a certain group of people were dirty and less than felt righteous too. The little, compliant, followers of the red book felt righteous too when they turned in their friends and neighbors. We have seen these people in the past. They’re here again. They think they would be the righteous who would fight against Nazis, Pol Pot, Mao, slavery, etc but they would go along to get along with whoever is in charge and had the power.

    As I watched the vaccinated at my workplace suffer both side effects and later COVID infections from my Zoom screen banishment working from home, the battle at the schools raged. Masked and outed by the district revealing all student’s vaccination records to all teachers and personnel, our child suffered the most. Continuous diatribes from one particular teacher denigrating stupid antivaxxers and shaming any unvaxxed students were abusive and damaging, and nothing was done about it. Our school district still has vaccine mandates and a school board that refuses to acknowledge that the C vaccines are a failure and children do not benefit. It will be hard to accept apologies from anyone who was willing to throw fellow human beings to the wolves because they took a stand for their personal beliefs and took control of their own health.

    Mark Twain said that it is easier to be fooled than to admit you’ve been fooled. I was triple vaxed before realizing I had been fooled. I am so glad I wasn’t part of the mob of condemnation. Recent interviews with Professor of Clinical Psychology Mattias Desmet by Max Blumenthal and by Children’s health Defense make it clear to me that many of the loudest voices condemning anti-vaxers are suffering from “Crowd Formation” or Mass Psychosis, as happened historically with the Crusades, Soviet persecution, Hitler’s Nazi Germany to name just a few. They are victims of intense media suppression of dissenting views and will hopefully come to their senses when the mainstream narrative crumbles completely. Thank you for this article.

    In mid-2021 I had the 3-day ‘covid’ flu (or whatever was going around) and recovered stronger than before (a healthy 80 y.o. senior) … and the vaxxed being so brainwashed could not comprehend the logic of natural immunity. WE should be held as heros for adding to the ‘herd immunity’ for the benefit of all. Ignorance and gullibility can as harmful as the physical ‘disease’. Grateful for good health and educated sanity 😉

    In Melbourne (Victoria, Australia) unvaccinated teachers, nurses, doctors, ambulance, paramedics and aged care workers are still not allowed to work despite desperate shortages in all of these professions and people dying because ambulances are not available in time. The population, who are all getting covid, no longer despise the unvaccinated because they now know that there is no difference between the two groups in terms of catching or transmitting covid — something they had been told by our dictator, otherwise known as premier, was not true. He told the population, over and over, as did the Chief Health Officer (another bureaucrat) that is was the ‘pandemic of the unvaccinated’ and that everyone must ‘do the right thing’. Liars through and through. And to this day Dictator Dan Andrews does not care how many people must die because of a lack of medical care — he has an intense hatred for anyone who hasn’t done what he has told them to do.

    I am an American, a New Yorker, married to a German, who lives in Bonn. What we see here is a government which threatens, at every turn, and in every way possible, those who opt for freedom of informed medical choice. Most of the available media outlets….newspapers like Der Zeit, and Germany’s major news magazine Der Spiegel, are completely silent on the issue of Covid mRNA adverse events, in the case of Die Zeit and Der Spiegel, thanks to huge contributions from the Gates Foundation. Radio and TV programs announce new regulations, and serve as mouthpieces for government pro-pharma shills.
    Occasional “discussions” on the “vaccine issue” feature media “talking heads”. They do not allow one word from legitimate scientists like Sucharit Bhakdi and Wolfgang Wodarg, who have immense knowledge of the epidemiology and microbiology inherent in mass “vaccination” and no BigPharma conflict of interests.

    Soaring death rates, evident in insurance statistics, and probably in the hundred of thousands are hushed up, and a top-ranked insurance executive who merely asked for further information about the cause was summarily fired. With the exception of some alternative sources, like Uncut News, available only on the Internet, many in English and from sources outside Germany, communication on the realities of the Plandemic is brutally silenced.

    And life has regularly been made unbearable for the “ungeimpft”, At times, no transport on buses or trains without a daily PCR test….many false positives. No “ungeimpft” allowed in any shops except for food stores and pharmacies…..and book stores. Impossible to work, go to school, engage in cultural or social life. Signs and graffiti saying “Ungeimpfte unwunschte”—“Unvaccinated not wanted here!” and “Ungeimpfte ins Gas”—“Gas the unvaccinated!”. When the noose about our necks is briefly and capriciously loosened we are expected to be grateful. And none of the “good German” pro-impfung”citizens I’ve asked knows anything whatsoever about the Nuremberg Code.

    Our neighbors, not bad people, just compliant and not thinking, are shocked that we are “ungeimpft”. One of them is vaccine-injured…..disabling double vision in one eye shortly after getting the “impfung” but he finds it hard to connect adverse events with the obvious cause, probably because few doctors dare to connect them. We look to the more enlightened….and rebellious….. in America for help. Robert Kennedy Jr., Governor Ron DiSantis, and Senators Rand Paul and Ron Johnson are our heroes. Rainer Fuellmich, creator of the Jury Trial series is our hero here in Germany. We do what we can to end the madness, and we speak out, whatever the cost, because when we become silent, all is lost.

    A wonderful essay, and so true.It all applies equally in New Zealand. We hold our breath for the next lockdowns, likely for MonkeyPox !! Probably just before the next elections. I am amazed at the number of folk, including the church, so easily duped by the media through FEAR, and still unable to recognise their weakness and stupidity. And I am talking about well educated people who are ‘successes’ in life. While I have a number of good reasons for being unvaxd, the prime one is to stand against tyranny and evil. It has not done my blood pressure any good…. seriously 205/125 and still too high. So, this is in addition to personal vilification. We are saints in the making perhaps. God bless Robert Kennedy Jr, Rand Paul, Reiner Fuellmich, Sue Grey, Claire Deeks – and the younger generation standing against this rubbish from Davos. People are joining hands – discreetly – and they are truly good people.

    Good article.

    One of my early morning rambles during the mandates.

    By now it seems clear, there are two very divided parts of society, they are being marked as clean and unclean. Those that have taken two or three or four injections and feel that is the answer to the pandemic problems are on one side. Those that don’t want to be injected or have been, but don’t want to see a divided society regardless of clean and unclean are on the other side. There is a group that will refuse to be injected no matter what for a variety of reasons it seems. They have been willing to lose jobs, stop traveling, be turned away from recreational activities and refused service in restaurants. They have obviously thought about this and in their mind are ok losing their life for their belief. So no matter what I believe the injections will do, whether it is give me my freedom back and save me from a virus as one side would mostly suggest, or as some against mandated injections suggest that the injections have a risk reward ratio that should be discussed, or are not as effective as initially advertised, or are acting as a Trojan horse that is bringing in tyranny. I may not know all the reasons that some have for refusing, it seems there are many. Saying this, I now have to decide what type of person will I be in these times. Will I be the person who supports a two tier society and where that leads? Will I be the type to separate people because the government says so? Many will say, I am but one person, what could I do? Others will say it is the government who has made these policies and not me, I am just following the rules. Others will stick their head in the sand and pretend this isn’t happening, but it is happening, regardless of where we stick our heads. There are many excuses I can use to not have to take responsibility for my own actions, the actions I am responsible for daily. I am responsible for creating a two tier, clean and unclean society if I enforce it, use its systems of passports or don’t speak against these separations. The government can make laws, mandates and policies but I am still responsible for my own actions. The government is not responsible for what I am willing to do or the person I am willing to become. So if I strongly believe that injections are the one and only answer, what am I as an individual willing to do to achieve my utopia? Will I actively support it or am I willing to stand by through inaction as a means of supporting it. Am I willing to physically kill someone who disagrees with me to get my way? How about a child that doesn’t get the vaccine, do I kill them as well so I can get to my utopia of everyone being injected? Or do I just kill the parents and forcibly inject the child? If that is too hard to stomach, would I be willing to hire someone else like the government to do it? If that is still too hard, would I be willing to just ban them from making a living, buying or selling in society and let them and their children starve. Maybe in this way I can in some way absolve myself of the guilt of killing them. Or am I willing to maybe send them to some type of camp, someplace I can put them all in one place, maybe fenced in, far away from me, where I no longer have to worry about their uncleanliness and hold them there against their will? Or am I willing to physically hold them down and inject them against their will, or at least hire someone to do it. This will require violence which will inevitably lead to a response of violence in return, am I okay with that as a result. As parts of the world have now allowed even grocery stores(New Brunswick) to ban the unclean from buying food, I need to look in the mirror and decide am I willing to support the next step. From the side of humanity is this the future I want to leave my kids, my grandkids? We are moving to a point where as long as the majority wants something, we as a society will justify dealing with the minority in whatever way is necessary to get them to comply, even if it means their death. Looking at this from the perspective of this is my doing, not the government, I have to ask whether I am willing to allow this violence to permeate through me. Even if I feel they should make a different decision, what am I willing to do about it. Many will feel differently and compare the uninjected to irresponsible killers who deserve this and therefore justify any and all violence against them. That one is hard for me personally to justify, since both the World Health Organization and the CDC have stated that injected people can both get and spread the virus, so by logic I can’t justify seeing the unclean as killers anymore than I can see anyone who gets a virus and spreads it as a killer, but some still seem to be able to justify this in their minds. Even if that is the case, my thoughts still are that I am not willing to kill them or force them in response to those decisions, even if they are wrong. I remember a saying from my youth of “two wrongs don’t make a right”, does this still apply? How close are we to becoming to the monsters we read about throughout history.

    The Covid shots are a precursor to what is coming in the future, the “mark of the beast”–a microchip in the hand or some part of the body, through which the public will be monitored and controlled. Perhaps the Covid injections were for the purpose of discovering how many would comply and go along with whatever they were told. If you think that this is just a conspiracy theory, wait and see.

    Let Me The People choose what we want and don’t want for ourselves. Oh wait We already HAVE this God – given right, it’s called The US Constitution. It’s time We The People reminded our local and state government it is their duty as being a We The People freely elected official to PROTECT, DEFEND, and ENFORCE The US Constitution. ALL laws are made at your local and state government level. If your local Sheriff is not supporting of US Constitution vote in one who is! You CAN and SHOULD make a difference by telling your local and state government what you will and will not comply or consent with. This includes unconstitutional illegal mandates for anything. Voting, petitions, protesting, emails, phone calls, letters ALL work at your local and state level and all matter. You can always reach your local and state government telling them what you want and don’t want. I’ve spent the past whole three (3 not 2) years of this insanity plandemic emailing, petitioning, calling, writing my local and state government fighting unconstitutional illegal mandates, lockdown, and forcible v@xxes which without full medical consent IS rape. We got many bills passed becoming laws where never again will my state try to force We their employers into what We got out of in just about four (4) months. We The People work and We reminded our local state government exactly who is in charge of who. We pay taxes that pays their salary this is a fact, that makes US their employer. They either will work with US or we fire them by voting them OUT. As I’ve shown it DOES work. YOU are We The People get busy and DO your due diligence to keep your Constitutional Civil Rights already guaranteed to each of US intact by telling those you elected that work for and with you exactly what you expect them to do concerning what you want and don’t want, what you’ll comply consent with and what you will not. Everyone has a computer and cell phone USE it to keep freedom. We are always just one generation away from losing freedom, fight and remember freedom is NOT free YOU must always fight for it!

    It was a way for everyone to determine who had good character and who would sell out even their own loved ones just to feel superior. Those who would condemn others for making a different choice now know that they have allowed their identity and worth to be determined by the government.

    We will have to address these discriminatory actions in our next federal election … there is a longer run up
    to that event because of the Liberal- NDP coalition, but about 20-25 months from

    I lived in a border town with Canada for 30 years and was up there all the time. Being unvaccinated I’ll probably never be allowed in Canada again. I’ll also never allow a PCR test for ANY reason. That means many things are off limits to me now, but I’ll never give in….ever. To all the “normies” who subjected their bodies to the shots all I can say is “good luck!” You’re going to need it!!!

    It’s become clear to this day that none of us have learned anything from Salem nor will the country truly be United States anymore if we keep finding reasons to separate people into boxes or categories. It’s only when the masses of civilians are separated, not united, that political leaders who thrive on division truly win. But even then, no guarantee; the wheel of civilization is spun by the resentful masses, who prove nothing more than misguided, rabid, hateful, cutthroat savages.

Sure you might disagree with policy but it doesn;’ mean the end of the world or that government and corporations and the system are evil and out to get you the state is making you suffer agonies, etc. The rhetoric just needs to COOL DOWN and this type of article only makes it worse.
