Chronicles of Madness – Episode 43
In our 43rd episode of Madness Chronicles, we’ll take a look at the madness of COVID lockdowns around the world. Remember, insanity is a state of serious mental illness, extremely foolish behavior, and a frantic or chaotic form of activity. Let’s take a look at a real COVID craze.
The following information comes from a recent report on abuse during COVID lockdowns by Amnesty International.
The nation of Zambia appears to be taking a strict approach to lockdowns. A police officer recently told a reporter, “We hit you, we hit you, and then we arrest you. If you escape, you’re lucky.” In Zimbabwe, three female COVID protesters were kidnapped, raped and tortured. When they were released, they filed a complaint about their treatment and were later arrested again for making false statements.
In Russia, a doctor has been arrested for violating travel restrictions by trying to distribute personal protective equipment. According to reports, she was suffocated and beaten in the abdomen, and she passed out from it. When she mentioned the incident after her release, she was violently dragged back to the police station.
There is video evidence of police enforcing lockdown rules attacking people with clubs in places as disparate as India and Sierra Leone. In Nigeria, in the first days of the curfew, several people were killed, as in South Africa; breaking the curvew resulted in 18 fatalities. In Kenya, seven people died and 18 were hospitalized in the first five days of the lockdown. It seems all over Africa; Are mistakes punished?
In El Salvador, a young man described how a policeman stopped him and beat him and shot him twice in the legacy. His crime of him? He was caught going to buy food and fuel, allegedly in violation of a national quarantine. In Australia, there is abundant video evidence on YouTube of police violently arresting people for not wearing a mask. In a disturbing incident, they entered the home of a young pregnant woman who was returning from her doctor’s visit. The police took her out while her husband and her young son stood defenseless.
Across Europe, there were several cases in Belgium, France, Greece, Italy, Romania, and Spain. Law enforcement officials resorted to the unlawful use of force to impose confinement measures on individuals who offered no resistance and did not pose a significant threat. Amnesty International’s Citizen Evidence Lab verified 34 videos showing police using force illegally in the context of the lockdown, including police in Spain beating and restraining a young man and his mother.
Now you could say, ‘well, they broke the rules’. What if you criticize the rules or don’t support the big pandemic narrative? In Turkey, numerous arrests were made for speaking out against the narrative, and in Venezuela, 12 health workers were brought to court for speaking out. In Kazakhstan, 81 people have been charged for speaking ill of the pandemic.
How about closer to home? A prominent California doctor has questioned his county’s coronavirus stay-at-home orders. Dr. Michael Deboisblanc, trauma medical director for John Muir Health, says he was fired after writing to health officials in Contra Costa County, California. An expert one day and out the next.
In Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, a man was standing outside chatting with a co-worker over coffee and was fined $300 for not wearing a mask. When you dig a little deeper, Manitoba has issued COVID fines of $683,000 since the pandemic began. Free speech doesn’t seem as ‘free’ as it was in 2019.
Is this a good time to ask, “Do you see any clues to our future here?” Take a look at some history and you’ll see that Nazi Germany started by saying you couldn’t shop in Jewish stores. Then they did not allow the Jews to work. So they couldn’t own property. And then, well, you know the rest of the story. Do you think we are different?
Let’s wake up from this madness before it’s too late. I wish you all good health and until next time, have fun, enjoy life and beware the craziness among us. It’s 2020, look around you; It is scandalous
