It's bad enough that the people who were coerced into taking a vaccine they didn't want or else lose their employment, education & military service but now we have people who are victim-blaming them and playing Monday morning quarterback about a situation they didn't experience.
I agree completely. I also highly doubt that the person grandstanding online would truly have given up their home, transportation, and job and lived "in a shack". People who say those kind of things have most likely never been homeless, or they wouldn't have said something that silly. Their mental picture of being homeless is a child's, like there are "shacks" around for homeless people to live in. I recently turned down a job because they demanded vaccination, but only because I was in a good enough situation to do so. I was fortunate that during the pandemic the place I worked was small enough to not compell us to. I realize those are fortunate things. You're wife did nothing wrong. The government on the other hand, are mass murderers.
It's a crime against humanity. What % of people who took the jab were coerced? How many millions of people were forced out of their jobs and can't find new ones? I am one of many in that category.
I had a triple whammy - the threat of losing my job, the threat of losing the education subsidy for my kids via that job, and the threat of losing my marriage. Coercion from work and home. The worst was the treatment I received from my spouse, who was so caught up in the propaganda and fear over my loss of income that he allowed it to turn him into a vile human being. There was no good outcome for me. No chance of getting another job. Not in my country and with my demographic. A country with no social security nets. As for my marriage - a marriage of over 20 years is not something easily discarded, despite the treatment I received. It was risk my health or lose everything else. That was my risk-benefit scenario. Hobson's choice. I have lived through many dark, dark days since and things will never truly be the same.
Getting the poison was no different to rape at the end of a gun. I wrote on a piece of paper that I was consenting against my will and insisted on taking a photo of it next to the stupid "consent" touchscreen that was absolute bullshit (and they didn't even let you touch the touchscreen, allegedly as your sign of "consent"), because it did not list any of the risks, of which I was fully aware. I told them I didn't want it but said do it anyway because I needed my job.
I don't care what people think or say. "No" means "no", and forcing people to say "yes" when they clearly mean "no", does not make it "yes". I truly don't give a sh*t what people think. I am hardened to any and all responses by now.
There is no whitewashing this. There is no trivialising it. There is no "holier than thou". Those who stand in judgement - do your damnedest. Your opinion means nothing to me. Karma awaits with particular relish those who judge.
Those who perpetrated this may think it's all gone and forgotten, and didn't mean anything - but it never will be. You will be hated, in perpetuity. Take it to your graves. No quarter on your souls.
Nothing less than genuine remorse would cut it for me, but only to lance my hate and enable me to feel nothing. I used up all my forgiveness quota on my husband, who hasn't even asked for it. All the rest, you should still face judgement on earth and in the hereafter. And be afraid, for it's not mortal judgement which should be concerning you.
My husband, daughter and myself all work in the medical field (I work from home). We were all told we had to take the jab. CMS (Medicare payor/Joe Biden) made it a requirement. We were blessed in that we could use a religious exemption. Some think even that is selling out.
I always felt soooo sorry for those that had to make that awful decision. Thankfully my employer didn’t make us make that decision but it took the vaccine anyway as I was a afraid for my 89 yr old father that I took care of. I am sad though that the government lied to us about its effectiveness even after there were good reports about natural immunity. I am pro vaccine but am NOT pro government anymore as they were so dishonest with the America people.
I saw that tweet too (and a few more today -- why are they all coming out now??) and was really disturbed by it.
My husband refused the Vax in Nov of ‘21 and was fired for it but we went into that decision like we did because our life situation at the time allowed for it and he was pretty miserable in his job at that point (he worked for a Fortune 100 company that shall go unnamed, who we discovered was working on global Digital ID; their CEO is a big WEF player). He was able to take a stand as a form of protest and wanted to do it for all those that couldn’t do it. (His entire staff was horrified that this was happening to him and they gave him the kindest of send offs -- most of his staff and colleagues were in other countries, none of which had the same company h mandates . Only the US branch did). He has been self employed since then and we have taken a huge financial hit and he is finally now re-entering the workforce but it has taken 7 months to find a new job. Our state has still not approved his unemployment, by the way-- we are still waiting for that.
Anyway, I am grateful we were in the position to not have him forced to get it but we still paid dearly for it, financially. We had many people, friends and strangers, tell us how stupid we were to do this -- so, no matter what, we would have disappointed some people I guess!
I rage on behalf of all of of the millions who were forced to do it to keep their jobs. It feels like there is just no justice there . It feels like a rape of some sort and one that is never acknowledged or paid for by those who perpetrated it. That someone would be so callous to point blame at these people who were forced into an impossible situation is frankly, sick.
Thank you for a nuanced look at the situation that unfolded. During Covid, I worked for a health insurance company and was initially excited to be able to get the vaccine, when the propaganda machine made it seem like it was the *only* option to prevent certain illness or death. Was I coerced? Absolutely! Many people in the organization refused and were fired; some applied for a religious exception, which was extremely difficult to get approved. Knowing what I know now, I'm not sure what I would do--it's easy to say that we would hold to our principles, but if that means being fired, would we actually do it? For people who would hold to their principles, would they do that if that meant their spouse and children might face hardship?
I stand with your wife. Absolutely coercion. I was able to resist by leaving my employer and finding a more reasonable one. But it was hard and scary and I am grateful it worked out. Coercion is not ok - whatever form and whether one is able to escape it or not.
Good for you for writing this. You have to separate the truly bad actors, who willingly got the vax and called for the internment of non-compliers such as Chomsky, versus the poor person who was coerced or simply duped. I was very fortunate I didn't face this dilemma. I know I was fortunate to have a true choice and only have sympathy for those who did not.
Though little more than scant media / social media exposure came of them, as early as September ‘21 and again January ‘22 I filed substantive criminal complaints with the Texas Attorney General for Murder and Crimes Against Humanity. I was fortunate not to have been in your wife’s situation, but I quite understand it. The impetus for my crusade against the jab was to try to protect a granddaughter who at the time was in one of the military academies. We’ll have to see what comes of it as the world awakens to the deceit.
I'm so sorry your wife and others had to make this choice. We are going backwards in our governance, our relationships, our schools, our health, etc. Biologist and zoologist Heather Heying wrote a substack about vaccines. It's excellent and eye-opening. https://naturalselections.substack.com/p/childhood-vaccines-arent-tested-against?utm_source=post-email-title&publication_id=423962&post_id=131307690&isFreemail=false&utm_medium=email
Well said, sir.
The sad thing is I don't think these employers will ever apologize or even remotely admit their fault of forcing their employees (the people they pay to do THEIR work) to take a vaccine that was ineffective for most, and damaging for many. Not to mention downright lied about in the media.
Adam, I send my love to your wife. These people will never understand the agony of making a decision like that and I completely understand where she's coming from. May her health be strong.
If she's ever interested in cleansing from the spike protein from the vaccine (if she hasn't already), I'd love to send her a three month supply of Spike Detox™, on me. Just email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you Adam for putting into words how I feel.I was placed in the same position as your wife.I was a nurse caring for Covid patients.I got Covid and recovered.I did not blame anyone for getting infected. It has been disappointing to see how people have criticized others who were forced to get vaccinated.They have no idea of the personal challengers these criminal mandates created.No one should ever been placed in this position.
I just hope people become more active politically to prevent this happening again in the future and a lot less judgmental.
I do/have admired social media accounts for several large "anti covid narrative" groups and I have fought with many ppl over this very thing. It's disgusting. Some even go as far as to mock those that were injured or possibly lost their life to the vaccines as "karma". Even some well known personalities speaking out on vaccines have said some very disgusting things.
