Over the last few weeks I spent some time watching parliamentary debates in Germany on Covid. This was quite revealing. I was quite flabbergasted at the complete absence of logical arguments by the government. You essentially have some apparatchik insult the opposition as well as anybody else who does not willingly roll up his sleeve to get pumped full of an experimental gene-therapy concoction for the rest of his life. Highly paid government officials spout complete lies, such as there not being any side effects at all or that the vaxx is save even for small children and pregnant women. The only political party opposing this theater is the AfD, which is essentially a centrist party but given that the mainstream has moved towards leftist extremism, they are commonly referred to as “nazis”.
When the opposition wants to question any of the members of the ruling party during a debate, they normally are not allowed to ask questions. Sometimes, the speaker allows them to proceed, in which case the response of the governing party consists of little more than insults to the person questioning the speaker, and insults to the intelligence of the viewer. In the debate in the German Bundestag today, in which a vaxx mandate for workers in healthcare was discussed, the AfD pointed out, in response to some whacko who wanted a forced vaxx for everybody from the age of 5 onward, if not earlier, that children do not die of Covid but are at risk of severe side effects and if they are in ICUs, it is not because of Covid. Instead of addressing this (true) point, the government party member accused them of being liars, and of “instrumentalising little children in an ignoble manner”.
The ruler of the German state of Saxony, Kretschmer, goes even further. His current position is that the AfD is responsible for the poor outcomes of the Covid campaign. Instead of addressing why people do not get vaxxed, he said that the AfD is responsible for “Covid denialism” and “vaccination hesitancy”. Yet, if the vaxx was really as safe and effective as it is claimed to be, we would not hear of so many people suffering severe side effects. Further, if Covid was a genuine threat, in addition to the vaxx being safe, people would probably happily get vaxxed. These are much more uncomfortable points, so they are being ignored.
Last week I watched a debate in the parliament of Brandenburg, which was downright ludicrous. Their ruler claimed that the AfD wanted to “undermine the state and government in order to take it over”. In reality, leftist extremists have overtaken the country, working tirelessly to utterly destroy it, and they have been doing quite well on that front. However, instead of admitting that they have been wrecking the country, the only party who is willing to discuss Germany’s real issues is claimed to be responsible for all of them. The chutzpah is beyond belief.
If you do not consume mainstream news, I recommend that you at least skim it on occasion. Similarly, tune into your parliamentary TV broadcasts and listen to press conferences. It is truly shocking how moronic the people who govern over you are. A short clip of Biden telling you that he does not know where he is may be humorous, just as a short clip of his feminist spox brushing off a journalist is off-putting, but you should watch an entire press conference or speech, or even a parliamentary or senate debate to get a better sense of the condition your country is in.
