It's like having a mass murderer complaining about the blood the victims got on his shirt, with the complicit MSM telling, anyone who will listen, 'It's unforgiveable, those stains will never come out'.

Thanks Rebekah. A great report on how modern 'journalistic reporting' is strong on the 'creative writing', better suited to the making of a dramatic novel or 'Bubble text' for a comic. ;-) To understand the tools of an enemy, is to be well equipped for battle. So according to the old/newly relabeled junkie term, I can now 'Identify' as 'Totally Cooked' and 'Fully Baked'. Love your work my dear. Power On Ms. Barnett

It's great time to be "Cooker." Let's see who's right, once & for all, everyone should request the National Cabinet Documents that Justice Richard White ORDERED to be released in August 2021. Why have they been withheld? The answers are within reach.

Very good post, this catch cry of cooker is just another example of manipulative techniques used. A cooker has always been the term for someone cooked on meth but this movement is piggybacking the negative connotations of the term.

I embarrassed him/her badly in another thread but I'm unfortunately banned again so cannot comment reply anymore to this clown who is a self proclaimed "doctor and very smart".

We have to be smarter in our approaches and not leave ourselves open for misinterpretion but the people using it have to be addressed as well. If the term isn't nipped in the bud the technique will work and the prothink sides credibility will suffer further.

Almost the entirety of the antithinkers argument is labelling, intelligent ridicule may be one answer.

Great post. I noticed the phenomenon you describe when they started rolling out the jabs but could never put it into words like you have. I could tell something wasn’t right when people raising legitimate concerns and doubts were being dismissed as “cookers” instead of addressing the key points.

I like how you’ve broken it into five simple steps, it really articulates what I’ve seen happening in the covid debate. Before covid I would have classed myself as a normie and never payed much attention to the manipulation, I always knew it was there but wasn’t aware of the extent. I now find it difficult to watch or read MSM. It’s like watching a magician trying to convince you that magic is real after you’ve already been shown how the trick is performed.

Imagine thinking people like us care about being called names. We are not the target audience for this - the name calling is to reinforce in-group identity of those who "did the right thing."

In other words, they are not calling us 'cookers' to hurt US, but to make themselves feel better about taking the jabs as they drop dead.

Nowadays we take sides before hearing the evidence.

We become fans of masks or enemies of masks without reading the original research, mostly by Chinese and Japanese epidemiologists, etc..

And without being aware that there are lies, damned lies, statistics and biostatistics.

Good article on fandom:

Young girl DIES from VACCINE - Her mother has an emotional message to others (Caitlin Gotze))Feb 15, 2022

Starmax News

https://rumble.com/vv1p51-young-girl-dies-from-vaccine-her-mother-has-an-emotional-message-to-others-.html

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: This was filmed at an outdoor protest rally in Canberra, Australia. Raelene Kennedy holds a card with photographs of her daughter Caitlin Gotze, a previously healthy 23 year-old woman who, after her second Pfizer jab, died of an enlarged heart on November 17, 2021. This excerpt is Raelene Kennedy's answer to the reporter's question about how she feels about the government's covering up vaccine injuries and deaths.

TRANSCRIPT - EXCERPT

8:11

RAELENE KENNEDY: I can't believe it because I'm just the most honest, law-abiding, we all are! Taxpayer, hard worker, like, I don't, I'm not an anti-vaxxer, I'm no conspiracy theorist, I'm just a normal person, and then one day, my daughter drops dead and all of this. I just started, I just, the only thing, I wish, I wish, I wish I had of been aware of this before. I wish I had of looked, I wish I had of researched.

If I can do anything, so far in this journey, it's been 12 weeks since Caitlin passed but she has saved lives, just getting her message out, and just so people know that if you have a shortness of breath, if you don't feel right, look up what pericarditis and myocarditis, look up aneurisms, look up everything that they're now putting out, Queensland Health and possibly the rest of Australia, I don't know, putting out, these are the symptoms. Look them up. And if you have that, MRIs are now free. Queensland Health especially has made MRIs free for vaccine-related or vaccine-suspected injuries.

So why would they do that if they've got nothing to hide? Why would they compensate you for vaccine injuries if they've got nothing to hide?

And they're saying it doesn't exist. Like, it it's just unbelievable. I just feel like it's not real, I just feel like it's a dream and one day I'm going to wake up because every other minute, like even here, I'm going, you know, I have to tell Caitlin this, or show Cailtin these beautiful German shepherds that are walking past, or there's a car that looks like Caitlin's car, or I just every other minute I think, because she was my best friend, you know? I think, I'll just talk to Caitlin. And she's not here.

And I think there are so many signs, so many signs. I think this is what she would have wanted, she wouldn't have wanted to have died for no reason. She would want to to save people, to help people, to get the message out that, just be aware and save yourself, and don't take no for an answer. No, don't be the next victim.

I saw a Perth based Facebook ‘friend’ of mine call someone a cooker the other day, so thank you for the explanation. Australia really feels lost, so sad, I love the place.

Classic.

The brainwashed unfortunately will not read this. For them, 'knowing the facts' is being able to memorise MSM headlines :-(

Dehumanise, “other”, disparage, humiliate, disregard, ridicule … sadly we’ve all lived through versions of these in our personal and professional lives these past few years, and of course the philosophy underpinning this frankly fascist reaction towards any dissent is fully-aided and abetted by mainstream media and their corporate and big-government handlers.

While we’ve largely all by now watched the vast majority of the normies either move on from the worst excesses of the covid cult or at least accept it wasn’t exactly well-handled, it’s painfully obvious that many of those who are on the side of logic and reason have themselves been conscripted into all manner of bizarre sub-theories and rabbit-holes which, even if entirely true, are frankly harmful to any freedom movement because the average normie might just be about ready to believe that in a “maybe, possibly, with hindsight-being-20/20 some of the experts might have been mistaken some of the time but we need to learn from this” way some of covid was a mistake, but harassing “honest pharmacists” in their eyes is beyond the pale. So frustrating, and the media salivates every time.

A refinement of the old "if you don't like the message shoot the messenger" strategy.

Pharmaworld is a snakepit, and has been since the days when it was just harmless snake oil.

Linus Pauling told me how, after he presented them with stats from a 5000-patient field trial of Vitamin C and cancer the NIH contracted with the Mayo Clinic to destroy even his credibility.

When Ted Kennedy got him a copy of the data, it showed that Mayo had included in the trial ONLY those whom Pauling asked to be excluded.

Thank you for this timely article. I have felt increasingly unsure how to deal with these people, ever since they were accidentally right on the value of lockdowns. Then especially after they got lucky on masks, and even more so when they fluked it on the lab origins of the virus. That their points on ventilator use also ended up correct made it worse, just like when studies showed that outlawing early treatment was actually not in the patients' interests. At least I knew they were wrong when they pushed the idea that a mRNA platform with a 100% failure rate and no suitable testing might fail and, if injected into billions of people, might result in a lot of unexpected harms... but then they got lucky AGAIN and started saying silly things like how 'reality' is better than 'models' for making conclusions. Unbearable. So thank you for this advice, hopefully I can apply it when they start spouting their unbearable 'common sense' in regards to government-controlled digital currencies 😉
