“They will be paying for our generation’s decisions the rest of their lives”

I already covered part of this story in the post Child Abuse, but I can’t help getting the feeling that in the USA at least there is the beginning of a Great Turning in dealing with the Chinese Xi Snot pandemic.

I base this on a few things that have landed on blogs from the MSM.

Let’s start with this rather extraordinary clip from one of the major MSM Sunday news-talk shows in the USA, Face The Nation, where a bunch of D.C. reporters did a wrap-up of the big stories of 2021. They got to asking about “under-reported” stories and that’s where we step in with the response from longtime CBS reporter and chief legal correspondent Jan Crawford:

Here’s part of what she said:

“My kids hear me rant about this every day. So I may as well tell you guys. It’s the crushing impact that our Covid policies have had on young kids and children, by far the least serious risk for serious illness.

Even teenagers, I mean, a healthy teenager has a one-in-a-million chance of getting … and dying from Covid, which is way lower than dying in a car wreck on a road trip. But they have suffered and sacrificed the most, especially kids in underrepresented and at-risk communities. And now we have the surgeon general saying there’s a mental health crisis among our kids. The risk of attempts among girls is now up 51 percent this year. Black kids nearly twice as likely as White kids to die by suicide.

I mean, school closures, lockdowns, cancellation of sports…You couldn’t even go on a playground in the D.C. area without cops scurrying… getting…shooing the kids off. Tremendous negative impact on kids, and it’s been an afterthought.”

That’s some truth bomb she’s dropping there as a parent. So much so that CBS edited it out of the broadcast, relegating it to the show’s Social Media pages. Well of course they did. The Narrative must be preserved, and in this case the Narrative is that the Public Health experts in the USA made the right call with lockdowns in 2020 and again in 2021, with remote learning (plus masks and social distancing) for kids who were, and remain, at almost zero risk of illness and death from the C-19 virus.

Come on. Even for those like me who opposed from the start the idea of locking down the healthy people in come crude copy of the CCP’s approach, I can accept that public health officials were scared of the risks of sticking with their traditional plans for dealing with such pandemics; tracking, tracing and quarantining sick people.

But things like lockdowns and masks certainly should have been deposed no later than May of 2020 when we knew the truth about COVID’s preferred victims: The elderly, the obese, and the sick. Our COVID response has been hard enough on healthy adults, but it’s been genuine abuse of our kids. That’s the truth, and CBS News would rather you didn’t know it. For once let’s be thankful that FaceTwit didn’t dump this for being “misinformation”, though that’s likely because they couldn’t block MSM journalists. Hell, here in NZ journalists who think like her don’t even exist.

“They will be paying for our generation’s decisions the rest of their lives”

But at least the main target of the C-19 virus, Baby Boomers, remained alive and healthy with their pensions and healthcare intact, with extra rounds of golf. They better hope they’re in the ground when this generation reaches middle-age and are making serious decisions about pensions and healthcare for the aged.

Even Brandon’s Surgeon General is warning about the increase in suicides among teens, partly due to covid and social isolation due to lockdowns and school closures:

US Surgeon General Dr Vivek Murthy says he’s alarmed by the rise in suicides among young people and says COVID has caused a mental health crisis, as parents rail against school closures and continued mask mandates.

‘I’m so concerned about our children because there is an epidemic, if you will, of mental health challenges that they’ve been facing, and it’s partly because of the pandemic,’ Dr Murthy, a father of two, said on CNN’s State of the Nation on Sunday.

Partly? Well of course it’s “partly” because, God knows, if you made decisions that seriously fucked up a future generation the last thing you’d want to admit is responsibility for that.

Some parents have had enough of the bullshit in the USA, I’m leaving NYC — to protect my children:

I am leaving New York City, the place where my husband and I both grew up and where we had planned to raise our own kids. The response to COVID-19 in New York, in particular where children are concerned, has driven our family out.

The treatment of children in New York since the very beginning of the pandemic has been abysmal. In the spring of 2020, then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo stuck schools dead last in the plan to reopen New York. He then delayed his decision on summer camps so late that many could not open once they were granted permission.

No one has it worse in New York than children. There is damage being done to the kids of this city, with masking and continued restrictions, and few in leadership seem to care at all. Masking is seen as a “low cost” safety option, but the idea that masking kids has no consequences is, of course, absurd. We’re already seeing studies about a decrease in cognitive abilities, in particular for “males and children in lower socioeconomic families.” I see it in my own children. My 6-year-old son, who has been masked for the entirety of his schooling, is shy and apt not to repeat himself when he is misunderstood. He also will not ask the teacher to repeat herself. It’s having predictable results in his education. 

The incredible thing is that with the recent emergence of the ZOMG Omicron variant the “leaders” in NY state and NYC have gone straight back to masking kids, even 2-year-olds in daycare settings, plus all the rest of the bullshit:

Until the recent cold weather, my kids had been eating on the ground outdoors in their respective schoolyards. When they finally moved the kids inside, my sixth-grader reported that the kids were forbidden from speaking to each other or sitting with their friends. Who else is living like this? Who else eats in silence? The best part was when the school vice principal visited the cafeteria and saw the kids chatting, she yelled at them — but not before pulling down her mask so she could be better understood, of course.

All pointless, along with lockdowns and the rest; case numbers are through the roof in NYC. Plus the usual hypocrisy we’ve seen:

In one picture, Hochul and some other adults were photographed maskless inside a school while the small children in the picture were forced to mask. It’s sick. But it also betrays what we all know: Many of these measures are just for show. Hochul goes maskless because she isn’t worried about getting COVID, no matter what she says.

Similarly in Chicago, where the Teacher’s Unions once again show that the kids are their No. 1 priority.

The following from the New Yorker’s story also sounds familiar to New Zealand:

Neighbors reported each other for gatherings. People screamed at each other in the street for not wearing masks. It became religious and any questioning of the doctrine was forbidden. It was impossible to discuss whether containment measures were useful (Did we need to wipe down our groceries with Clorox? What were the three-sided Plexiglas booths helping, exactly?) because any discussion of easing up on any of it meant you wanted PEOPLE TO DIE. If you wanted schools to open, you wanted TEACHERS TO DIE. People became afraid to speak up. I saw it all the time.

I’ve seen (and heard) it too, Fully encouraged by political leaders as well, but at least Cuomo and De Blasio didn’t walk around amidst this saying “Be Kind”. The following reactions are also the same – and just wait until vaccinating the kids swings into gear this year in NZ. The Karens will be at full pitch for their little darlings. I predict a big increase in home schooling, as has happened in the US.

When I announced our family was leaving New York and moving to Florida, a state with a governor who has led the way on sanely managing COVID-19, I received dozens of messages from New Yorkers considering the same move. When I asked several if I could quote them, they asked to use a fake name. They live in fear of being “canceled” for not being sufficiently terrified of COVID. Three vaccines and many new treatments do not seem to matter. We must live suspended in our fear indefinitely. 

At least she has somewhere else to go. The joys of a federated nation.

  1. And today the worst abuse is about to commence with children allowed me be vaccinated.

    • It is highly irresponsible, verging on criminal, to vaccinate children with an unproven, experimental vaccine with a completely unknown profile regarding long term health effects

      People of the establishment have a quasi religious faith in the efficacy of this vaccine despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary in the real world – it is worse than debating with a Jehovah’s Witness trying to convince them that the vaccine might not be all that it is cracked up to be

      None of this makes any sense what so ever

  2. Agree Nick. Luxon and Bishop seem most keen on jabbing young children as well. I just can’t understand it. Do they think that is what parents want and so push that agenda?
    I sincerely hope that Dr Reti gets informed and into it.
    little wouldn’t know anything.

  3. And let’s not kid ourselves that it’s “voluntary” and not “mandated”. It is mandated – no school, no sport, no music, no drama, no friends etc without being vaccinated with a spike protein that enters the nucleus of human cells with NO evidence that children have ever suffered from the virus in sufficient numbers to justify a vax mandate. None.

    • I don’t agree with the claim about altered DNA.

      However, I’ve yet to see anybody explain why kids, who have the lowest probability of falling ill, let alone dying from C-19, need to be vaccinated against this virus? Over on KB I see DPF has been gung ho about getting his five year old “jabbed”, but I’ve never seen him respond to the stats on childhood C-19 infections.

    • What amazes me is that David Seymour wanted medsafe bypassed so we could do this via the FDA’s ’emergency use authorisation’. So much for the party of ‘freedom’

    • Whilst it doesn’t exactly change DNA, a study has found the spike protein does enter the nucleus and inhibit DNA repair: https://www.mdpi.com/1999-4915/13/10/2056/htm

      Obviously there isn’t wide reporting of the results.

    • Thanks Paranormal. That study actually says “significantly inhibits” DNA repair. It concludes that by doing so, immunity is diminished.

      This makes a lot of sense.

  4. Yeah, over-the-top until proven. I’ve edited my comment. The CDC says no DNA alteration, but then again, that’s the CDC. I don’t trust it.

  5. Trust is long gone.

  6. The telling sentence is: “So much so that CBS edited it out of the broadcast.”

    That is what we are up against.

    A large percentage of the media is against us.

    Sound familiar here in New Zealand?
