In the UK one could argue that the pandemic is mutating into a Plankdemic. It was never a Plandemic, it became a Pandemic of the Unvaccinated. It has now become a full-on Plankdemic. Fuelled by disinformation, clowns and snake oil pedlars. Meanwhile the Tory government looks the other way, and play dumb.
One could even argue that anti-vaxxers, covid deniers, covidiots, and conspiracy theorists are being aided by the Tory party.
So, for the purposes of this article we will refer to them all as “planks”.
Plank: A stupid person - 'as thick as two short planks'.
We could call them much worse.
These “planks” are the reason why the UK has more new Covid-19 cases than France, Germany, Italy and Spain combined.
But if that wasn’t bad enough, it looks like the planks want to meddle with children’s mental and physical health too.
What we have now is middle-aged men and women, standing outside schools, giving out leaflets to children with QR codes which lead to extreme and conspiracy content. By filming the children and sharing these videos online and on social media they are putting children at risk from grooming.
What do we call adults that film children without their consent? What do we call the predatory behaviour of Piers Corbyn & his assistant Jill Everett filming kids who don’t want to be filmed outside a school?
Looking like a nonce is not a good look Piers
In prison slang a nonce, is the lowest of the low. A rapist, child molester, a sexual offender.
One group reportedly brandished pictures of dead children outside a school in Gateshead.
In one case a pupil was pushed into the road by a protester after refusing to take a leaflet.
In a recent Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL) survey four out of five schools had been targeted by anti-vaccination campaigners.
A fake vaccine-consent letter, pretending to be from the NHS, was sent to schools in England.
The letter falsely stated there was a “one in 29,389 chance of dying from the vaccine”, comparing that with children’s extremely low risk of death from the virus.
Reality: 1 in 5,000,000 risk of dying from the vaccine.
Unvaccinated: 1 in 143 risk of dying from Covid.
These misleading vaccine claims target children and parents. Putting their lives at risk with false information.
And what have the government done about it? Nothing.
Nonces are the worst kind of people. So, what do you call Doctors that make up sick scare stories about children dying?
Which leads nicely to the HART Group. Dr Clare Craig is a prominent member.
Leaked chat logs from the anti-lockdown Health Advisory and Recovery Team (HART) show members discussing putting their message against vaccines out under the banner of another organisation, the UK Medical Freedom Alliance, “if it is too inflammatory for Hart”.
Another member discussed sharing research from a third vaccine-detracting body, the British Ivermectin Recommendation and Development Group, because “psychologically this then looks like two groups of professionals agreeing with each other (making the content more believable as it looks like two separate groups)”.
Members of these organisations also have links to Us for Them, which says it represent parents, and the campaign group Safer to Wait.
Its founder can be seen in the leaked Hart members chat, asking the group to distribute a Safer to Wait leaflet with misleading claims about the vaccine to primary-school parents.
These campaigns appear to be having a wide reach, with protests at schools across the UK.Covid: Misleading vaccine claims target children and parents
Blame it on the vax
Another popular activity for anti-vaxxers is to try and attribute any sudden death or illness on the vaccines.
One person suggested the vaccines caused the fatal shooting of Halyna Hutchins. The director of photography killed by prop gun fired by Alec Baldwin.
I have seen others blaming the night’s hospital stay of 95 year old Queen Elizabeth on the vaccines. Plus 99 year old Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh’s death was also blamed on the vaccine by some plague enthusiasts.
Others even contact the parents of children who have died suddenly to ask their vaccination status. Some retards even call the parents murderers. That’s even before the cause of death has been established.
Which explains this meme.
Live and let die
A new mutated form of coronavirus that some are calling “Delta Plus” may spread more easily than regular Delta, UK experts now say.
Meanwhile hospital bosses are saying reinstating face masks would help alleviate pressure on the NHS. “99% of beds are occupied at GWH and numbers are moving in the wrong direction as winter approaches.
Mr McNamara said the number of Covid patients was comparable and at times had exceeded what was seen last November during lockdown.
Health Secretary Sajid Javid warned on Wednesday that the reintroduction of Covid restrictions in England would be more likely if people “don’t wear masks when they really should.” He said this included “really crowded” places and those “with lots of people that they don’t normally hang out with”.
But this message was not reinforced by Maggie Throup, She is the UK’s new vaccines minister during the worst public health crisis in 100 years.
The Commons Leader, Jacob Rees-Mogg, when he suggested on Thursday that Tories do not need to wear face coverings in parliament because of a “convivial, fraternal spirit”.
Face masks should not become a “sign of virtue”, Gillian Keegan, the Tory minister of state for care said.
The Tories seem like masters of disinformation. As are anti-vaxxers.
Mad Mick strikes again
The video appears to show conspiracy theorists Michael Chaves aka Mad Mick and Jamie Freeman serving the hospital staff with fake legal paper about the Nuremberg Code and ‘”crimes against humanity”.
As Freeman handed over numerous envelopes, he said: “the most important [document], which is all of the evidence to prove that coronavirus is an absolute “plandemic,” a hoax, that you are operating illegally, and are committing crimes against humanity.”
Michael Chaves runs the ‘Mad Mix Conspiracies’ Youtube Channel, where he tells thousands of viewers about the pandemic being a hoax
The Center for Countering Digital Hate says that Chaves is the leader of Learn Something New Today, a group which believes that Matt Hancock, the former health secretary, is a murderer, vaccinations will kill children and Joe Biden is not human.
He is also a member of a channel on the messaging service Telegram which is advocating targeting antivax protests at people’s homes.
So just why aren’t Mad Mick, Piers Morgan and Co. banned from schools, hospitals and vaccination centres?
Piers Corbyn has been arrested under terrorism charges, but is still on the streets causing havoc.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019, Piers Corbyn has described the virus as a “hoax” and campaigned against lockdowns and against COVID-19 vaccination, falsely describing potential COVID-19 vaccines as dangerous.
Following the violent murder of Sir David Amess this week Piers Corbyn decides to stage an anti-vaccine protest outside Westminster. By erecting a mock gallows outside the Houses of Parliament.
In July, YouTube pranksters Josh Pieters and Archie Manners, posing as AstraZeneca investors, met Corbyn and offered him £10,000 under the condition that he would stop criticising the AstraZeneca vaccine.In reality, Corbyn received Monopoly board game money.
In September, Piers protested at the sentencing of ormer Metropolitan Police officer Wayne Couzens was being sentenced for the Murder of Sarah Everard. Corbyn said that coronavirus laws were “not about controlling a virus” but instead “about controlling the public”. This was widely seen as inappropriate given the highly disturbing and emotive nature of the Everard murder. A passerby approached Corbyn shouting “How dare you hijack Sarah’s death for your own cause?”.
He was arrested again on 3 February 2021 on suspicion of malicious communications and public nuisance.
Corbyn was arrested at a march in Fulham, on 27 February.
On 1 March the Metropolitan Police reported that Corbyn had been charged along with Kate Shemirani for a series of breaches of the UK Coronavirus regulations.
I think once again we can blame the government for not acting decisively and efficiently.
- What if they had stepped in and stopped the Hart group and others from being such an influence?
- What if they had stop the planks from hanging around schools and intimidating children, parents and teachers?
- What if they had led by example, and wore masks to show they were taking this medical emergency seriously?
Rachelle Wilkins, the regional officer for the GMB union in Northamptonshire, said: “I’ve been visiting schools in the last four or five weeks. And it’s been basically a free-for-all. I’ve been into a school this morning and worn a face mask in a meeting – nobody else had a face mask on.”
Sounds similar to a Tory meeting to me. Just look the other way, and hope it goes away.
