“You Murderous Hypocrites”: Outrage Ensues After The Atlantic Suggests ‘Amnesty’ For Pandemic Authoritarians

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

The Atlantic has come under fire for suggesting that all the terrible pandemic-era decisions over lockdowns, school closures, masking, and punishing an entire class of people who questioned the efficacy and wisdom of taking a rushed, experimental vaccine – for a virus with a 99% survival rate in most, should all be water under the bridge.  

We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID,” writes Brown Professor Emily Oster – a huge lockdown proponent, who now pleads from mercy from the once-shunned.

“Let’s acknowledge that we made complicated choices in the face of deep uncertainty, and then try to work together to build back and move forward,” she continues.

Except, they weren’t “in the dark” about Covid.  There were numerous sources pointing out the actual science that ran contrary to the mandate claims, and they were deliberately silenced by a vast media campaign.  Evidence suggests that media platforms worked in tandem with Big Tech, the CDC and the Biden Administration.  It was not a simple matter of overreaction, there was collusion to remove all counter-information.  

Nice try, Emily.

As the Daily Sceptic‘s Michael P. Senger puts it: “There’s a lot wrong here. First, no, you don’t get to advocate policies that do extraordinary harm to others, against their wishes, then say, “We didn’t know any better at the time!” Ignorance doesn’t work as an excuse when the policies involved abrogating your fellow citizens’ rights under an indefinite state of emergency, while censoring and cancelling those who weren’t as ignorant. The inevitable result would be a society in which ignorance and obedience to the opinion of the mob would be the only safe position.”

And look at that ratio:

In one epic Twitter thread, Claremont Institute Senior Fellow Matthew J. Peterson (@docMJP) excoriates Oster’s entire premise;

Hey—sorry you lost your job b/c of the vax that doesn’t work and your grandmother died alone and you couldn’t have a funeral and your brother’s business was needlessly destroyed and your kids have weird heart problems—but let’s just admit we were all wrong and call a truce, eh?

It’s too bad we shut the entire economy down & took on tyrannical powers that have never been used before in this country—looking back, you should have been able to go to church and use public parks while we let people riot in the streets—but it was a confusing time for everyone.

Hey I’m sorry we scared the hell out of you & lied for years & persecuted & censored anyone who disagreed but there was an election going on & we really wanted to beat Donald Trump so it was important to radically politicize the science even if it destroyed your children’s lives.

OK, yes we said unvaccinated people should die & not get healthcare while never questioning Big Pharma once but we are compassionate people which is why even though we shut down the entire economy we also bankrupted the nation & caused inflation. You’re welcome! Let’s be friends.

As QTR’s Fringe Finance notes, Oster’s plea for the decency that her ilk failed to offer up to most Americans during the throws of the pandemic comes at a point where the Covid narrative has been all but lost by the Democrats and the mainstream media.

There have been several recent large wins for the unvaccinated who had the constitution and backbone to stand up for themselves throughout a year of being constantly berated and ferociously scorned as second class citizens.

A majority of the media and Democrats had demanded that these people be removed from society and generally subject to scorn and ridicule. Now, in a moment that many of us knew would eventually be coming, apologies are being made around the world for how the unvaccinated were treated.

As Fox News wrote last week:

“The premier of Alberta, Canada, said she is working on a plan to pardon residents who were fined or arrested over breaking coronavirus protocols, and apologized to unvaccinated Canadians who faced ‘discrimination.’“

In New York, a Supreme Court judge recently reinstated all employees who were fired from their jobs for being unvaccinated:

The court found Monday that “being vaccinated does not prevent an individual from contracting or transmitting COVID-19.” New York City Mayor Eric Adams claimed earlier this year that his administration would not rehire employees who had been fired over their vaccination status.

The problem was not people’s ignorance of the facts, it was the organized antagonism and censorship against anyone presenting data that was contradictory to the mandate agenda. This is setting aside proclamations like those from the LA Times, which argued that mocking the deaths of “anti-vaxxers” might be necessary and justified.  After two years of this type of arrogant nonsense it’s hard to imagine people will be willing to pretend as if all is well.

The active effort to shut down any opposing data is the root crime, though, and no, it can never be forgotten or forgiven.

People are livid

  1. So many good points here, but too bad it eventually leans partisan. The damn thing was not only both parties (Trumpie, too) but it was GLOBAL!! Global harassment like we’ve never seen before. Harassment with threats and ruination. How about we mention The WHO. and WEF?!! Yet, their population-culling agenda awakened a mega percentage of the people and made us more determined to live, and to live on our own terms. So many of us were just not willing to take part in our own murder

    On a side note, I keep thinking of the b*tches of that obnoxious show “The View,” which really should be called “The Phew” because it stinks to high heaven, like a dead rat, not the rodent variety, but the variety that lies and lives as traitor. A rat (not the rodent) one of the lowest life forms on earth, destined for 9th circle with a grand “View” of retribution. and vengeance.



  2. This is all baloney rub-it-in-your-face jewish journalism in my opinion. Long-serving highly qualified doctors & scientists are still getting fired & worse for going against the “covid” narrative to this day as an earlier article in the past day or 2 just highlighted.

    1. Nuremburg was a farcical show trial run by jews who used torture to obtain “confessions”. We should NEVER use it as an example of what really needs to be done now! “Start building the gallows ….” is good enough for me! 😉

      1. They hate hemp, our companion plant. Ever wonder why, in their treasonous, corporate admiralty jurisdiction which does not apply to the people, they are always trying to criminalize it anyway? Why do they not want us to grow hemp? We know the answer which is all the more reason to grow as much of it as we possibly can!

  3. Amnesty for committing acta of evil that you know were acts of evil? Uh…no! And don’t even think about bringing up what Christ said on the cross as an excuse–“Forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Because they DID know what they were doing! (Christ referred to the Romans performing the crucifixion as not knowing what they were doing. Those who knew what they were doing were the Pharisees…today they are called Talmudic Jewry and the Synagogue of Satan).
