GoFundMe spokesman Bobby Whithorne now claims that campaigns that try to raise money for people who’ve been injured by vaccines, for instance, are somehow promoting “misinformation about vaccines” that “violate[s] GoFundMe’s terms of service,” and thus must be removed. And who’s behind these terms of service? Big Pharma, of course!
“Information skeptical to vaccinations could hold back a multi-billion dollar industry so personal liberty must be curtailed to protect Big Pharma’s bottom line,” writes Shane Trejo for Big League Politics.
“The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduce them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim.”
“It was accepted by WHO, and they said when the test is positive, we have a case of COVID-19. And this is how they started counting the cases,” Wodarg said. “What they counted was the activity of testing. And the more they tested, the more cases they found.”
Many of the new restrictions will only apply to businesses not signed onto a vaccine passport system the government is calling the “restrictions exemption program,” which will allow vaccinated Albertans, as well as those who can present a negative COVID-19 test, to access participating businesses without facing restrictions, other than masking.
Stats compiled by Oxford University-backed research team Our World in Data shows there were a record 1,892 Covid cases per million people in Israel on Wednesday — nearly 0.2 per cent of the entire population in a single day.
On Wednesday, Ontario became the fourth Canadian province to announce plans to require residents to prove they’ve been vaccinated in order to get into certain indoor spaces.
In the plan Premier Doug Ford said it’s “no secret” he didn’t want to implement, Ontarians will be required to show a vaccine receipt and identification to get into certain settings starting Sept. 22. Then, starting Oct. 22, Ontarians will have access to a QR code certificate, proving their vaccine status.
Although vaccine requirements can be controversial, particularly where unvaccinated condo owners are paying fees toward maintaining those facilities, public health rules are nothing new, said Chaplick. Many swimming pool regulations arose from the need to eradicate polio.
“It is extremely common for us as a society to adopt laws requiring public health and safety and vaccination to prevent the spread of disease,” said Chaplick.
After months of death threats and angry confrontations with anti-vaxxers, Earlscourt BBQ owner Jason Rees isn’t particularly hopeful a COVID-19 vaccine passport will cool things down.
“I’ve got a bad feeling I’m going to have to kick someone’s ass,” said Rees.
For more than 18 months, we’ve dealt with questionable advice on masking, ranging from head-scratching and mildly amusing to outright laughable, and there seems to be no end in sight, despite the lack of scientific underpinning for universal masking.
