Monday Mirthiness: Latest idiocy from the “extinction rebellion”

From the same people that think “coronavirus is the cure”, meaning living humans are bad. If that’s the case then you first, you numptys.

Corona is the cure – tweet from an account claiming to represent XR East Midlands

Media Release
Friday 26 March 2021

EMBARGOED: 8.30am Monday 29 March 2021 Intersection of Bathurst and George Street, Sydney
8am Monday 29 MARCH 2021


Extinction Rebellion will majorly disrupt Sydney’s CBD on Monday from 8am with simple demand: no gas-fired recovery. 

Extinction Rebellion (XR) protesters will take part in two actions in Sydney’s CBD on Monday March 29 to call on governments and companies to commit to abandon gas. XR calls for no more dirty gas destroying land, water and the planet. 

XR will start with a Renewables Recovery March  from Pitt Street Mall on Monday March 29 at 8.15am. This loud and colourful procession will call for demanding no gas-fired recovery and a sustainable future. 
Another disruptive action will take place at the intersection of Bathurst and George Street. From 8.00AM, protesters will occupy the space. XR is aware of the inconvenience caused to drivers, however time is running out. 

Extinction Rebellion demand APA back out of the Western Slopes Pipeline and Santos’s Narrabri Gas Project.  APA are progressing plans to construct a 450-kilometre pipeline to carry gas from Santos’s Gas Project in Narrabri to Newcastle will destroy forest and farmland which we need for oxygen and food as well as pollute the air with fugitive gas emissions and NSW’s water supply.

Extinction Rebellion spokesperson Danny Noonan (47, Dapto) who has a vision impairment is taking part in the protest at Bathurst and George Street. He said:

“Using regular channels and being polite is not working. We need to find a way that does, mass and disruptive actions are the first step in forcing the people in power to start listening.”
XR rebels will block a road in protest of the undemocratic approval of the Western Slopes Pipeline and Santos’s Narrabri Gas Project and in solidarity with the local people of Narrabri as well as Gamilaraay Traditional Owners. The project was recommended for approval despite 23,000 submissions opposing the project (98% of all submissions). 

The Narrabri gas project is not supported by the local community, interest groups or Traditional Owners. The communities are increasingly aware that their town water, land and food security are put at risk by the project. A 2014 survey found that 97% of the community oppose projects like this in their area.  The Country Women’s Association of NSW opposed the project, questioning how a project with 134 conditions could continue. NSW Farmers say the project seriously risks water resources, soil, air quality and food security in NSW.

Another XR member at the protest AJ Tennant (39, Glebe) said, “We’re telling APA, Santos and our governments to listen. Listen to local communities, listen to traditional owners. The outrage is palpable – they do not want these dirty gas projects. They know it threatens their water, their land and the future of our planet.”

The projects are a serious threat to what’s left of the Pilliga Forest. The Pilliga forest is the largest remaining forest in Australia and NSW relies the forest on for groundwater capture. The damage that will be done to local communities and the planet will not see a good return on investment from this ‘economic mirage. The project will massively contribute to carbon pollution as Australia and the world urgently needs to reach net zero emissions.   

Danny Noonan said, “Government is not listening to us or to the scientists. Change is not happening fast enough for us to make any real difference. We have met and are constantly meeting tipping points without doing enough to stop us from falling over the edge.”

XR is calling on APA to urgently back out of the project. The company is aware that the project threatens the water table, food production and the future of the local area. 

These actions were planned as part of a national week of protests around capital cities last week. Due to extreme weather caused by the climate emergency these actions in Sydney were postponed.

Extinction Rebellion demands our governments:
1.    declare a climate emergency
2.    halt biodiversity loss and reduce carbon emissions to net zero by 2025
3.    and be led by the binding decisions of a Citizens’ Assembly on climate and ecological justice.

Acknowledgement of Country
XR acknowledges our actions take place on stolen land. We pay respect to the traditional custodians of this land, including elders past and present. First Nations people around the world have been on the frontline against colonial expansion and environmental destruction for centuries. Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.

Excessive mask wearing (breathing in your own germs) and isolation (lack of natural air/sunshine) is probably the actual killer here.

Nobody would suggest a sufferer of the common cold to breathe in their own germs, and stay indoors. Yet apparently that’s what’s been decided upon.

Absolute madness.

Research does not support your claim, unless you are layering thick masks as some idiots advocate.

You evade the benefits of masks. of containing droplets that contain virus, and reminding you not to touch mouth or nose with contaminated hands.

It has been fifteen months now, and still not one proof of isolation in vivo, not one picture, and specifically not one single fulfillment of Koch’s postulate. Verily I say unto thee, brother, the covidiot virus has been patented, but look into thine heart, and testify thee before the nations, that is has actually been built and disseminated, accidentally or not.
Jokes aside, the flu is direct indication of dietary oopsie, but there is help for those who take responsibility for their own health, instead of praying at the altar of Big Pharmafia:

Well, could have been premature, reports may feed in slowly – keep in mind there is transport between areas and the market, and the several day period between infection and noticeable symptoms. Of course delayed reporting could be another devious method. But some people are not recognizing the uncertainty in reports.

Another excellent video on Covid-19 and its origins:

Apparently, the first outbreak was among miners in Yunnan Province in 2012. The mine was colonised by Horseshoe bats, which contaminated the miners with a new virus. The Wuhan Institute of Virology investigated the case, and took samples back to Wuhan to be cultured. I think this s the smoking gun.

Hopefully it will get figured out as a learning exercise. There are indications SARS-CoV-2 did not come a lab, though there is research in CC on corona virus as bats are common carriers. One theory of source is some miners who spent weeks in hospital with unknown ailment.

The US government has contributed funds to several labs, including in CC and in the US.

Unfortunately fake news is around as usual – that was not Bill Gates in a lab photo, the lab was not in CC but in the US.

An example of immature research and hype is that one bunch of researchers said the virus could not have come out of nature because of particular aspects of its makeup, but another bunch of researchers said the virus could not have been developed in a lab because of particular aspects of its makeup. Like climate ‘science’? 😉 [I did not try to understand how one or the other claim could cover the scenario of deliberate mutation of a virus in research, for whatever reason, then transmission out of a lab for whatever reason – seems to me such a virus would have the complexity of a ‘natural’ origin.]

Uh, error alert!
SARS-CoV-2, like INFEUNZA, is a respiratory virus.

Lungs weakened by them are prone to the killer bacteria pneumonia.

Regardless of pneumonia, people in quite poor health – which by definition residents of care facilities are, can die as their organs are too weak to withstand much illness. Some would have died in even a mild INFLUENZA season, hopefully knowledge of prevention will prevent future deaths from that perennial killer.

Some people are harming persons by misinformation, causing confusion, causing fear, or causing ‘what me worry’ carelessness. Panicking pandering politicians harm with their obsessive shotgun policies which deflect from taking care of the truly vulnerable. In BC authorities gave vaccination priority to people over age 90, then woke up to the risk to persons with deficient immune systems, like cancer treatment and organ transplant. (I know persons those and other vulnerable categories who self-isolated a year ago, they were not dense.)

Keep in mind that there are over 200 cold viruses and also I really don’t know if that info is correct or mere speculation but it was a doc doing the speculating as to why some folks seemed to be immune to covid.

Hypothesis 1) It’s all a hoax.
Hypothesis 2) It’s manufactured by the Chinese for nefarious reasons.
Hypothesis 3) All the nations of the world are losing a fortune in tax revenues and filling their morgues because this actually is one of those pandemics that is known to happen once or twice a century.

Hypothesis 1 depends on collusion y every nation; China and the USA, Israel and Iran, all of Europe, S America and Africa. This seems unlikely. And if it was possible don’t you think they would all agree to do something more profitable?

Hypothesis 2 cannot be true if hypothesis 1 is. But hypothesis 1 is ridiculous so… maybe? But how does that help now? What does it matter if it is true?

Hypothesis 3 is the only one that makes sense in terms of Government revenues. Not locking down would lead to more tax income. That’s what the people ordering the lockdown live off. There must be a reason for them to choose to lose out.

It could be argued that avoiding the death rate is not worth the economic cost or restrictions on personal liberty. That’s a political call.
But please note that every single Government, whether dictatorship or democracy, decided that the death rate was indeed too high to buy.

It’s understood from studies submitted to the British Government that Ivermectin is successful in clearing up nearly 90% of Covid-19 cases in less than a week. Within a day or two, victims show significant signs of recovery.

So that’s 90% of the remaining 10% of cases that die from the condition cured. Ten were talking incredibly small numbers of fatalities from the condition.

Were this cheap, safe, OTC (in some countries) drug made available to the general public, there would be no ‘Crisis’ and we could all get back to normal life.

In fact is so safe, and so effective, Ivermectin won a Nobel Prize for Merck who developed it.

However, in our overly risk averse western societies, governments would far rather we risk dying from Covid-19 than risk us taking a harmless medication that might prove effective, in even 50% of cases.

Meanwhile, those who accept the ‘vaccinations’ may well prove to be asymptomatic carriers of Covid-19, not only negating any benefit from the vaccine, but also causing incredible harm by perpetuating the virus and eliminating any possibility of Herd Immunity developing.

How does any of this make sense?

We used bicarbonate of soda, applying it to affected area and drinking it with water and fresh lemon juice and she ate bitter apricot kernels.

“How does any of this make sense?”

On top of that, there are now about 12 to 15 therapeutic drugs similar to Ivermectin, that have shown positive effects on Wuhan virus patients.

Yet the official medical stance of the U.S. government and the Medical associations is *not* to recommend *early* treatment of patients who contract the Wuhan virus.

These theraputics shorten the time the Wuhan virus spends in the body so damage is being prevented by getting the virus out of the body as soon as possible.

The leaders of our medical institutions have failed their patients miserably. Their refusal to call for early treatment has cost many lives.

And it’s all because of politics, not medicine.

I can’t think of a bigger medical scandal than this one.

Error!

There are various corona virus, cold ones tend to be mild, SARS, MERS, and SARS-CoV-2 are much stronger respiratory diseases.

Influenza virus are related, as you should know they vary widely in strength – Kansas flu, Asian flu, Hong Kong flu, swine flu, and avian flu being nasty respiratory virus.
But ‘lockdowns’ were not used for most of them.

Respiratory diseases end to facilitate pneumonia bacteria taking hold – which is probably what kills most people, SARS-CoV-2 also has somewhat of a vascular impact.

(I say ‘Kansa flu’ because the strong virus was first detected in Kansas USA, there are indications mild versions were in the NE US for years prior. It was called ‘Spanish flu’ because the neutral country of Spain did not suppress news during WWI. Impact in the US was hard on soldiers because of cramped accommodation, they then went to Europe and spread it. Society was slow to grasp what it was, here smart people grasped the risk of SARS-CoV-2 quickly and acted to protect residents of care facilities – but most politicians were stooopid denso, and some kept quiet for fear of alarming people. Yeah I know, information is good, and lack of publicity would hurt war effort by increasing loss of soldiers.)

Can any Autralian citizen please clear up this one issue: Are these “intentionally disruptive actions” LEGAL or ILLEGAL in Sydney?

If ILLEGAL, then why don’t the police clear them off the streets?

Public protest marches are fine if they have the required permits and do not impede non-participant citizens unduly. Intentional mayhem, however, is destructive and should not be condoned or allowed.

Definition of terrorism:
“Terrorism is the use or threat of action, both in and outside of the UK, designed to influence any international government organisation or to intimidate the public. It must also be for the purpose of advancing a political, religious, racial or ideological cause.”
They just admitted to being terrorists.

They are illegal.
And since terrorism is nothing but assymetric warfare, XR members can be [pummeled with fluffy pillows-mod] by any upstanding citizen. As a matter of fact, it is their duty

The extinction rebellion zealots that put up those flyers should then be blocking access at the vaccination sites, with ‘free speech’ as their rationalized right to do so.

How long would the pansy police bicycle patrol in Australia allow them to block that type of needed public access?

(I can just imagine a stout 70 year old lady trying to clear a path to the vaccination site and the pansy police patrol hurting themselves as they throw her to the ground in their attempt to restrain her)

Virusses take turns, they are very polite about it. So they just sat down and had a non-binary talk about inclusion of all the OMGWTFBBQ people and put out a non-white statement.

I woke up drenched in sweat and shivering all over my body. What an ugly nightmare.

The reality is that there is no pandemic. There is flu which is now called Covid-19. The IFR is exactly the same, no extra deaths. There has never been a shortage of IC beds. There has alaways been the “crisis reserve IC beds” to spare. They try to pin it on a corona virus but until now failed to isolate the bugger. Normally you would need that to make a vaccin, but they decide to use gene therapy they started on before the first case of Covid-19.
Then things went really bad. The very rich wanted to get richer, so they decided this was the moment to kill small and medium enterprise and grow the giants like amazon.
Governments then did something they are very used to: take on more debt to pay for the damage they just caused. I guess who is going to pay for that in the very near future, you me or us.

You can get the same numbers simply by comparing death rates for the past ten years and more. Here’s a good one: Since the good doctors have been too busy to scare people into believing they are at the point of cardiac death that can only be staved off by excessive spending on medication and procedures, the total number of fatal heart failures have drastically dropped. Either that, or heart attacks are now called covid-19. Take your pick between those two realities, they are mutually exclusive, at the same time mutually supportive of the theory that covid-19 is utter bull.

Humans are the only thing that can save the planet in the very-long term. Eventually either CO2-starvation will k*ll most of the biota, or certainly the sun’s heating up from core-contraction will cook the earth (some say in about 500 million yrs). Only humans will be able to move the planet, using a large body/asteriod as an orbiting attractor to pull it outward very slowly.

This is what one of the founders of XR, Stuart Basden had to say, and I would hope what he says is self evident for whether all of this is good or bad. It’s the usual tropes, and it’s open ended of course, and I’m sure he would also say “there is so much more to be done”.

“And I’m here to say that XR isn’t about the climate. You see, the climate’s breakdown is a symptom of a toxic system of that has infected the ways we relate to each other as humans and to all life…
– The delusion of white-supremacy centres whiteness and the experience of white people, constructing and perpetuating the myth that white people and their lives are somehow inherently better and more valuable than people of colour.
-The delusion of patriarchy centres the male experience, and excludes/hinders female assigned people from public life (reducing them to a possession or object for ownership or consumption). Patriarchy teaches dominating and competitive behaviours, and emphasises the idea that the world is a place of scarcity, separation and powerlessness.
– The delusions of Eurocentrism include the notion that Europeans know what is best for the world.
– The delusions of hetero-sexism/heteronormativity propagate the idea that heterosexuality is ‘normal’ and that other expressions of sexuality are deviant.
– The delusions of class hierarchy uphold the theory that the rich elite are better/smarter/nobler than the rest of us, and make therefore better decisions.
– There are other delusions. These delusions have become ingrained in all of us, taught to us from a very young age…”

If the project is so bad for humans by threatening the water table and food production, then I would think XR would be championing the project to expedite the demise of the human race. I suppose it’s too much to expect a consistent, logical argument from this lot.

But if they are that ignorant about the very subject that has consumed their passions, what can you say about them, these people who have no idea what they are talking about? It is all about social conditioning I think. They repeat the actions and rituals of their peers.

There was an interesting experiment that backs this up. The waiting room of a clinic sounded a bell every minute or so. On the sound of the bell everyone stood up then sat down again. What would happen when somebody outside this group arrives? At first she looked confused when everyone stood, but after two bells, she herself stood for the third and subsequent bells. Eventually everybody apart from the woman left, but a new,unsuspecting person came in and sat down. After observing the woman do this on two occasions, he also joined in. There is a psychological theory for this, but I’m not sure what it’s called. Probably “useful idiot.”

As for original ownership how can they call for the return to the aboriginal if all humans are dead. Shouldn’t the land be returned to the slime and murk that existed, according to evolutionists, that was here before man. Wait, that was in the water.

Astronomers have found a lot of planets that don’t support human life and Earth is the only planet known to support human life and the godless ones here would prefer there be no humans. Given the means they could go there and enjoy the pristine environment for the 1 to 30 seconds before they expire.

Elected tribal reservation officials support it for jobs and more roads, for people who badly need both income and better access to services. ‘Hereditary’ tribal officials oppose it, for a broader land claims reason.
