The following is an article I posted to Craigslist in the politics section to let people know that FB has removed the event notice one day before the rally. Shortly after posting it, someone had to post a follow up to show their ignorance and I’ll explain what I mean here in a moment.
The Lansing protest on April 30th, is (was) to urge Michigan lawmakers to end the lock down immediately..
The government shut down is unconstitutional and Facebook is violating your civil rights for freedom of speech and the right to peacefully assemble.. The censorship on Facebook is out of control !
“The American Patriot Rally on Capitol Lawn event was removed for advocating for in-person gatherings to defy government health guidance on social distancing, a Facebook spokesperson said.” WZZM13 Article
…Let us show up to Lansing in MASS and show these dictators that we’re tired of their lockdown. It has now become quite clear that Covid-19 is no more deadly than the common flu, not to mention that countries like Sweden (who have not done any lock down), are showing almost identical infection rates to countries like the UK who had total lock down.
Don’t overlook the fact that deaths from flu last year (and every year for the matter) are about the same as current Covid-19 deaths – look it up, see for yourself.
I hope to see you in Lansing Thursday!
PS. Be prepared to sit in your car for hours (as we did last time a couple weeks ago at the last one). Also, there are no bathrooms, so don’t fill up on drinks. Bring signs if you like, but don’t be a moron and don’t embarrass others who are there protesting peacefully. We don’t need anyone acting like a fool to give the idiots in government any reason to think we are the morons.
Ok, so that was the article I posted, and then some ‘genius’ had the following to say. I’ll post his / her comments below and then add some commentary of my own (based on facts). The person in question posted on Craigslist the following comments with the same title as my article instead of trying to email me or have a discussion about it, so I thought I would educate not only the person who posted that, but also present some facts and common sense of my own for everyone else who might also be questioning the main stream narrative. (I’d link the CL post here, except those listings only last for 60 days I think.)
(His /Her Comments)…
“3,567 Michiganders will not be able to protest the loss of their constitutional rights tomorrow because they are dead from COVID-19. That’s more than the number of Americans who were killed on 9/11/2001.
58,365 Americans have died from COVID-19. That’s more than the number of Americans who died in the Vietnam War. Isn’t it amazing how this guy can trivialize death? I guess that is because it hasn’t affected him or anyone near to him. No where in the US Constitution does it say you have the right to post whatever you want on facebook. Stay home tomorrow and be safe lest you catch the selfish virus by going to Lansing to demonstrate your lack of responsibility.“
.. and to that person, I say thank you for your insight and your opinions. However, I would like to invite you to review the facts and death rates for the common flu (and others) – which kill as many or more than COVID-19 – see for yourself…. Here’s the Link
in fact, take a look at these death numbers for 2017…
Number of deaths for leading causes of death:
Heart disease: 647,457
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,672
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 50,633
Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173
Every year, we lose hundreds of thousands (out of ~330 Million) from “Common Disease” which far out number Covid-19. The HYSTERIA about Covid-19 is the real problem.
What we need, (instead of trying to insult and embarrass each other), is a conscious, informed public – capable of critical thinking who ask questions, not roll over and believe everything they’re told.
HOWEVER, to answer your above comments directly (the person who posted their followup to my article) –
- your death numbers appear accurate, until you dig a little and find out that most common deaths for the last 4 months are not being reported, while many deaths seem to be getting reported as Covid-19 – even if it was technically Heart Disease, Flu, Pneumonia, or others. Here’s what some people are saying
- while any deaths at all from Covid-19, flu, pneumonia or others are certainly a travesty, that should not give rise to panic, hysteria and economic shut downs that will (and are causing) far more problems AND deaths from Starvation than the actual virus itself. The WHO and others are estimating that the shut down of first world countries is causing deaths by starvation in the tens of millions.. Currently their estimate is over 100 million people in 3rd world countries that are dying from starvation due to the economic shut downs…
- Deaths from Virus or no virus DOES NOT negate your civil rights nor does it do away with your constitutional rights to free speech, right to peaceful assembly, or protest your government.
- Please take a breath, think about it… then investigate these claims for yourself – You are being lied to by mainstream news. It is the fear, panic and hysteria that is the real problem with covid-19 – not the virus itself – for that is proving to be no more deadly than any other “common disease”.
This fear, panic and hysteria is about to usher in forced vaccines, and more loss of liberty (all based on a false pretext). We don’t even have a vaccine for the common cold or all flu strands. Open Your Eyes People for God’s Sake.
