History does not repeat itself, but it often rhymes
A brilliant post, Rebekah. Only those who refused to partake of these garbage jabs have a true, visceral sense of what it felt like here in Australia in that strange, dark, nauseating time. I told a resolutely pro-vax friend recently that things felt so threatening here in Melbourne that my daughter and I seriously considered hiding out in the forest. I am not kidding. It was that bad. Her reaction? She laughed. I knew then that she had no idea how dangerous it was for us jab refuseniks. It was 'keep your head down and at no cost tell anyone you are unjabbed' in my sore beset city for well over six months. I have never felt this weird level of threat anywhere. Ever. How do we move on from this?
This summarises exactly my experience with friends, family and the public at large. Australians are descended not just from convicts, but their jailers too. We have become an idiotic, arrogant and spiteful society that is easily manipulated and slow to critical think. God help us.
Probably the best summary I have read on this aspect of the pandemic event in Australia. I read it with a feeling of disgust of my fellow Australians but also with an acceptance that we have lost our brains.
Fear and compliance won the day, over common sense.
Quite simply, people did not think about the fact that nobody was dropping dead on the footpaths from this supposedly deadliest in history rampant virus. If we had seen this happening around us, we would have all shut ourselves in our houses and happily taken some wonder drug to save us. Coercion, legal punishments or mandates would not have been needed.
But Australians bought it, along with the rest of the world.
The jab was an experiment on a global scale - so too were the psychological experiments.
In the week ending 22 January 2023, at least 80% of those killed by Covid19 in Western Australia had been jabbed.
McGowan is now trying to retrospectively reduce Covid19 Deaths by re-classification.
The only time that I was able to get thru to the "good family and friends" was during a dinner conversation. Talk turned to hospitals and AC units. Mentioned that my husband will never be able to see his mother alive again due to POV requirements for entry. This reality made 2 at the table start to cry. Then they understood what their fear and complacency had created.
We were granted entry at end of life. She was non-communicable. We had to enter thru a side door, be separate from main facility and leave the room when staff entered for care. She died the next day and I can honestly say, that as a previous health care worker, this was the most disgusting, demeaning treatment to receive at such a stressful time.
Yup. I had similar experience to you, I let my best friend since high school (wad just her bridesmaid) know that I wouldn't be able to attend her baby shower (at a cafe). She said 'aw, OK no worries. I think. A couple of other people are in the same boat."
That's it. Nothing else. I think it hurt me more than if she had excluded me and hated me.
I have a BSc ( Biology) and I knew we were being lied too. The masks , the social distancing and the fate of the travellers on the DIAMOND PRINCESS , convinced me that the virus was not the monster it was made out to be. When McGowan bought in his apartheid, I could still buy coffee from the drive through and I could still ride my bike without a mask. I knew the vaccine wasn't working because Covid came into Perth which was completely locked down. The virus was passed on not from the unvaxxed , who could not go anywhere but from the double vaxxed who had tested negative. I was relieved that I did not have to mix with all these potential carriers. If the virus was not killed by the "vaccines" then it would mutate. What disturbed me was the attitude of the media, the government and the medical bureaucrats , I had in the past wondered why the German people aided and abetted the nazis to kill the Jews - their neighbours and friends. I have now seen that fear and anger toward the unvaxxed in the faces of people I know , it's made me a more cautious and aware person and completely distrustful of anyone with some authority over my life.
Fully unjabbed Western Australian here. Good article. Nicely done. All accurate and true. Chilling to live through it. Trust in institutions and my fellow Aussies pretty much destroyed. Very disappointing.
A timely reminder of how it all went down. May we never forget. I still can’t forget those nauseating “We’re all in this together” ads at the beginning of lockdown which I immediately identified as propaganda. I read with interest ‘The good german’ link. My mother was german. She was very dutiful...believed everything Menzies said or The Women’s Weekly printed. And would not entertain a view that differed from the prevailing one. Frightening and frustrating to witness a mind so effectively captured. I keep my head down and won’t engage but when forced to admit my non vaccinated status the predjudice is immediately revealed. Like the Germans they refuse to listen to any view other than their own and base it on the “need to protect my community”. Sure like they’ve cared about anything but their own well-being. I’m watching the karmic turnaround that is starting now. Everything you need to know was laid out early in the piece in Stephanie Seneff’s brilliant paper “Unintended Consequences of the Cov19 vaccination”. I will try to be kind to these people.
Good article highlighting the complicity of the public. In this article I go further: what McGowan, the media, medicos and police did hit most of the levels of 'Stanton's Stages of Genocide.' Now, we are in the 'denial and coverup phase' which Stanton describes. This is predictable, and as you say, has historical precedent. I write about the WA situation from my experiences in Rwanda. I'm so glad I found your stack. We will not let them get away with this, we will not let them repeat this. https://vicparkpetition.substack.com/p/australian-genocide-in-progress
Remember how mandates were dropped the Monday after McGowan and his family contracted covid? The following weekend was the national Labor conference as well. His son, despite being multiple-jabbed was admitted to the hospital, but under McGowan's OWN mandates neither he nor his wife could visit his sick son in the hospital. The jab didn't protect his son and the mandates were dropped after that. He has never spoken about covid since and sneaks around the state, only appearing at carefully curated events. It took a personal experience for him to realise that the jabs don't work and his mandates were cruel. We were living under the jackboot of McGowan's fearful delusions which is the hallmark of a dictator.
Great summary Bek, although slightly traumatic to have to run through that timeline of gaslighting again! And yet still our Dear Leader Marky Mark McGowan sits atop his throne...
A wonderful commentary, thank you. What is it like today? I am in Adelaide, South Australia. .As an unjabbed person, I am not aware of any of these shocking restrictions applying to me. Despite active social life, I personally was never challenged in a public area. But I had friends who lost jobs, so cruelly.
We’re all walking around in a soup of toxins that we absorb until the body reaches its threshold and begins a purging, or detoxification process. Vaccination provides no protection; against anything, it only adds more toxins. If people took the time to learn how their body works; and how toxic the environment has become, they could see how silly the propaganda is.
Thank you Rebekah, from my perspective one of the very best of your posts yet!!
From Filipe Rafaeli, the following is so very and profoundly similar to the WA (Australia/Worldwide) experience:
"For something of these proportions to occur, it is not enough for there to merely be a dictatorship. It needs a totalitarian state where the population is in harmony with the dictatorial government. It needs a people that collaborates by denouncing, helping, and not caring about the evil in front of them. For this, the population needs to understand the opposite: that evil is good".
Watching this unfold, as we all did, the above demonstrates that this is exactly what occurred, literally. As you also detail so well, the Main Stream Media, as a single entity, were guilty as charged. This group single handedly & wholeheartedly prostituted themselves to the authors of this evil ruse, becoming the single most effective element of propaganda, coercion, discrimination and censorship.
Keep your receipts, we will remember!!
I am Aussie to my bones, fam been here since 1803. I feel the vomit rising in my throat at the shit scared, wimpy, frightened little children we all became, at the shrill behest of the shit MSM & our sold-out, traitorous politicians. I lost job, friends, then I had dead mates from the clotshot & my dad got a LIGHTNING Pancreatic C that killed him after 3 death shots. I personally wish every Pro-Jabber that took the shots an AGONISING DEATH (those FORCED BY JOB MANDATE - your bosses must PAY). I found out EXACTLY how much my fellow Aussies give a fuck about the filthy unvaxxed ✊️ Hatred is an elixir. After y'all DIE, we will seek the Elite$. 👁
Sorry to bother you, but I'm doing some research on Alex Berenson's purported subscriber numbers and I would like to hear from people still paying for his Substack even though he has recently bashed vaccine victims and has also been pushing Paxlovid over Ivermectin on Twitter.
