Mike Whitney Guest Post: You Refuse to Get Vaccinated, But Are You Ready to be an Outcast?

You Refuse to Get Vaccinated, But Are You Ready to be an Outcast?


You Refuse to Get Vaccinated, but are You Ready to be an Outcast?, by Mike Whitney - The Unz Review

“If behavioral psychologists helped to shape the government’s strategy on mass vaccination, then in what other policies were they involved? Were these the “professionals” who conjured up the pandemic restrictions? Were the masks, the social distancing and the lockdowns all promoted by “experts” as a way to undermine normal human relations and inflict the maximum psychological pain on the American people? Was the intention to create a weak and submissive population that would willingly accept the dismantling of democratic institutions and the imposition of a new political order? These questions need to be answered.” (From the text)

Let’s assume for a minute, that the vaccination campaign is led by people who genuinely want to end the current crisis and restore the country to “normal”. Let’s also assume, that they believe that mass vaccination is the best way to achieve that objective by preventing the spread of the virus and, thus, reducing the death toll. Is that sufficient justification for silencing vaccine critics and conducting a nation-wide brainwashing operation aimed at controlling public opinion?

No, it’s not. People need to hear both sides of the story, in fact, that’s the only way they can make an informed decision about how they wish to proceed. The media has no right to commandeer the airwaves and control whatever people hear and see. And they have no right to deliberately exclude the medical professionals and other experts whose views conflict with the official narrative. The only way that people can offer their informed consent for vaccination, is if they’re able to weigh the risks and benefits for themselves. But that’s only possible if they have access to many diverse sources of information which, at present, they don’t. Increasingly, the only message that most people hear is the one that is provided by the government in collaboration with industry honchos and other elites. Traditionally, this type of state media is called “propaganda” which is a term that certainly applies here.

It doesn’t take a genius to figure out how this has affected the debate on vaccines, namely, there isn’t one. The skeptics have been dismissed as antivaxx loonies while an entirely new regime of experimental vaccines is being praised as a “miracle drug”. At the same time, the government –which has aligned itself with the industry it’s supposed to regulate– is doing everything in its power to pressure people into getting vaccinated. What we’re seeing is the most extravagant Madison Avenue “product launch” in America’s 245-year history, and it’s coming at us full-throttle from all sides. It’s virtually impossible to turn on the TV or radio without being deluged by one emotive vignette after the other all of which are aimed at promoting vaccination. How does this respect the right of the individual to make his own informed decision free from government coercion?

It doesn’t. This is flagrant indoctrination and yet no one talks about it. It’s shocking. Have you noticed how the critics of the mRNA vaccines have been prevented from expressing their views in the media? Have you noticed how the doctors, scientists, virologists, epidemiologists and public health experts have all been blocked from appearing on the cable news channels or excluded from the nation’s leading newspapers? Have you noticed how these critics been attacked on social media, censored on FaceBook and removed from Twitter? Have you noticed the lengths to which the media has gone to eliminate any challenge to the “official narrative” and to denounce, ridicule or blacklist anyone who dares to offer a conflicting opinion?

Why? Why is the media preventing these experts from articulating their reservations to the American people directly?

It’s obvious, isn’t it? It’s because the people that are managing this campaign don’t want anything that veers from the “official narrative”. They don’t want people thinking for themselves, they don’t want people searching alternate websites that challenge the new prevailing doctrine on vaccines, they don’t want people who read the details about the trials or the medical journals or the research papers. They don’t want you to question their motives, or weigh the risks and benefits of getting vaccinated. They don’t want you to notice that their vaccine never completed long-term trials or met the normal standards for product safety. They don’t want you to consider the fact that mRNA is a relatively new technology with a checkered past that includes some very disturbing animal trials in which all the animals died. They don’t want you to think about any of this. They want you to shut up, stand in line, turn off your brain, and roll up your sleeve. And, anyone who disagrees with that sentiment, is being censored.

Am I being unfair?

That’s not my intention. And –believe it or not– my intention is not to criticize the vaccines themselves, but the manner by which they are being shoved down our throats. That, I object to strongly because it violates the people’s right to informed consent. A lopsided, nationwide public relations blitz that relentlessly glorifies vaccines while deliberately excluding even the slightest criticism from respected professionals, does not respect the rights of the people. It’s brainwashing, pure and simple.

And why have behavioral psychologists been employed by the government to promote the vaccination campaign? Why have they concocted a strategy designed “to change people’s beliefs and feelings about vaccination” to inform “people about the prosocial benefits of vaccination”, and to “intervene on behavior directly”, which means that you’re given an appointment, and told that you will be getting your vaccination at the end of the session.” Psychologists call this a “presumptive recommendation” which effectively eliminates the element of personal choice by creating a scenario in which getting vaccinated is a fait accompli. How is this not coercion?

It is coercion, subconscious coercion. The doctor is strong-arming the patient into getting vaccinated by making it look like its standard procedure. That puts pressure on the patient to follow the path of least resistance, which is compliance. It’s a clever tactic, but it is also transparently manipulative.

The behavioral psychologists who have helped to shape the government’s policy, believe that the emphasis should be placed on the “safety and effectiveness” of the vaccines. That’s the cornerstone for building public support. At the same time, they show no interest in providing evidence that would support their claims, which suggests that “safe and effective” is nothing more than a meaningless bromide that is invoked to dupe the sheeple into getting inoculated.

You might have also heard the term “vaccine hesitancy” used to describe the people who have decided not to get vaccinated. The moniker is clearly intended to denigrate vaccine skeptics by suggesting that they have a mental condition, like paranoid schizophrenia. This is an effective way to discredit one’s enemies, but it also shows the glaring weakness of the pro-vaccine position. If the proponents of vaccination had something of substance to offer, they would rely on facts and data rather than ad hominin attacks. As it happens, the facts do not support their position. Besides, “vaccine hesitancy” is not a character flaw or a mental condition, it’s the sign of someone who has taken responsibility for his own health and welfare. Ask yourself this: Why would a normal, rational person be eager to have an experimental cocktail injected into his bloodstream potentially triggering all manner of long-term ailments or death? Is that the choice a normal person would make?

As far as I can see, behavioral psychologists are playing a critical role in this mass vaccination campaign. According to a report put out by the National Institutes of Health, it appears that a rapid response team has been formed to attack the opinions of people who challenge the “official narrative”. Check out this blurb from the report titled “COVID-19 Vaccination: Communication: Applying Behavioral and Social Science to Address Vaccine Hesitancy and Foster Vaccine Confidence”:

Mitigate the impact of COVID-19-related misinformation…

The spread of health-related misinformation was a significant public health concern well before the COVID-19 pandemic. During the last decade, vaccine-related discourse online and in the media has been plagued by misinformation. Anti-vaccine groups have leveraged political and social divisions to diminish trust in vaccines, pushed false narratives questioning the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, spread false claims about adverse outcomes, and downplayed the risks of the disease’s vaccines protect against.….

COVID-19 vaccine communication efforts cannot ignore misinformation and must take actions, informed by behavioral and communication research, to identify emerging rumors and respond in a way that is informed by behavioral science. Real-time, agile, and scalable monitoring of discourse concerning COVID 19 vaccination—including conspiracy theories, rumors, and myths—can support a swiftly developed and implemented response. “Misinformation surveillance” efforts should identify the most prominent sources of misinformation, the tactics being used, and the groups most at risk of being exposed to and influenced by the rumors. This information, in addition to data regarding the dynamics and patterns of misinformation spread, could help inform the appropriate response and best targets for intervention efforts….

Correcting the false claim contained in the message, exposing the tactics used by disinformation agents, and inducing skepticism by highlighting the ulterior motives of these actors are all potentially effective strategies for mitigating the impact of misinformation…” (“COVID-19 Vaccination* Communication: Applying Behavioral and Social Science to Address Vaccine Hesitancy and Foster Vaccine Confidence”, the National Institutes of Health)

Repeat: “Misinformation surveillance”… “disinformation agents”… “the ulterior motives of these actors“??

Really? Now who’s sounding paranoid?

This is very scary stuff. Agents of the state now identify critics of the Covid vaccine as their mortal enemies. How did we get here? And how did we get to the point where the government is targeting people who don’t agree with them? This is way beyond Orwell. We have entered some creepy alternate universe.

Here’s more on the topic from a statement by Arthur C. Evans Jr., PhD, CEO of the American Psychological Association, in response to the approval by an advisory panel of the Food and Drug Administration of a vaccine against COVID-19:

“We recognize that there are pockets of resistance to vaccines, distrust of the medical establishment and misinformation about vaccines generally….Some populations are understandably less likely to accept vaccinations due to a legacy of mistrust rooted in unethical public health practices.

“It is critical that leaders across the political spectrum unite behind messages of vaccine safety and transparency.” ..

Enlist credible spokespeople who can connect with diverse communities, especially those where mistrust and skepticism run high. When leaders talk about vaccines as standard practices, as opposed to options, people are more likely to accept them. Research suggests building trust and providing clear information about vaccines can improve vaccination uptake rates. It is critical that leaders across the political spectrum unite behind vaccine safety and transparency, clearly explaining what is in the vaccine and what it does and doesn’t do in the body.

Consider the wide variety of factors that motivate human behavior. Behavioral science indicates that people are more likely to adhere to vaccine recommendations when they believe they are susceptible to the illness, when they want to protect others, when they believe the vaccine is safe or at least safer than the illness, and when their concerns and questions are managed respectfully by doctors and experts.” (“APA Welcomes Step Toward First U.S. Vaccine Approval”, American Psychological Association)

Is it really ethical for the APA to be involved in a mass vaccination campaign? Is this the role an organization like this should play in a democratic society? Should the APA use its unique understanding of human behavior to persuade people on behalf of the government and big pharma? And, more importantly, if behavioral psychologists helped to shape the government’s strategy on mass vaccination, then in what other policies were they involved? Were these the “professionals” who conjured up the pandemic restrictions? Were the masks, the social distancing and the lockdowns all promoted by “experts” as a way to undermine normal human relations and inflict the maximum psychological pain on the American people? Was the intention to create a weak and submissive population that would willingly accept the dismantling of democratic institutions, the dramatic restructuring of the economy, and the imposition of a new political order?”

These questions need to be answered.

Surprisingly, the resistance to vaccination is nearly as strong today as it was a year ago. According to PEW Research:

(only) “69% of the public intends to get a vaccine – or already has….

Those who do not currently plan to get a vaccine (30% of the public) list a range of reasons why. Majorities cite concerns about side effects (72%), a sense that vaccines were developed and tested too quickly (67%) and a desire to know more about how well they work (61%) as major reasons why they do not intend to get vaccinated.

Smaller shares of those not planning to get a vaccine say past mistakes by the medical care system (46%) or a sense they don’t need it (42%) are major reasons why they don’t plan to get a vaccine; 36% of this group (11% of all U.S. adults) say a major reason they would pass on receiving a coronavirus vaccine is that they don’t get vaccines generally.

The new national survey by Pew Research Center, conducted Feb. 16 to 21 among 10,121 U.S. adults. (“Growing Share of Americans Say They Plan To Get a COVID-19 Vaccine – or Already Have“, PEW Research)

So, despite the nonstop propaganda blitz, a significant portion of the population remains unconvinced, unimpressed and steadfast. Go figure? Of course, this is just Round 1. Soon, persuasion will turn into coercion, and from coercion to outright force. It’s already clear that air-travel will require vaccine passports, and that public transit, concerts, libraries, restaurants and, perhaps, even grocery stores could follow soon after. Vaccination looks to be the defining issue of the next few years at least. And those who resist the edicts of the state will increasingly find themselves on the outside; outcasts in their own country."


Greencrow Comments:
As usual, Mike Whitney nails it. We're now onto step six...or is it seven...of a ten...or is it fifteen?...step project of reducing the human species by 90% to a mutated, transhumanized slavery class--ruled by robots. The preliminary step we've now just morphed into is called the "Outcast" stage. Those who buck the vaccination scam will become increasingly sidelined, marginalized, minimized, discriminated against, vilified and, finally, forcibly removed from society--to gulags--where they will be stripped of their earthly possessions, tortured and murdered.

This was all predicted last year by the Canadian Liberal Party Insider whistleblower who posted an anonymous step-by-step of the plan format, as described to him/her in high level Liberal Party cabinet meetings.

The greencrow has come up with an antidote to this plan. What I have done, and suggest you consider as well, is phone up your doctor [if you have one] and ask him/her to investigate the MAIDS legislation that has just become law here in Canada. In this "lockstep" society, I am sure similar euthanasia legislation has or soon will be made law globally. Ask your doctor to provide you with information and forms--so you soon can enroll in such a program pre-emptively. Then, should your relatives line up and take the Experimental mRNA Gene manipulation culling will have a Plan B so you don't have to live a life once your entire family has been wiped out within the 14 to 18 month period predicted by the many independent doctors and researchers.

If thousands and millions of anti-vaxxers sign up for the MAIDS program and get put on the "waiting list", perhaps that will send a message to the perpZ and more importantly--wake up the Sheeple. When my husband told me last week he was getting vaccinated, that same day I phoned my doctor and asked for information and forms for the MAIDS program. Incidentally, my doctor, a middle-aged woman, informed me during the phone call that she was already fully vaccinated...and I extended my condolences to her.

When I told my husband I was signing up for the MAIDS was the exact emotional equivalent of him telling me he was going to get vaccinated. He immediately "backed off" on his vaccination plans...but, perhaps only temporarily.  The TV indoctrination psy-op runs VERY deep and I am under no illusions.  He was/is serious about being vaccinated.

BUT, as I informed him, I am also serious about my MAIDS plan. I have been thinking about this for a year now, ever since the nightmare began. I WILL go through all the bureaucratic hoops and WILL qualify for a MAIDS program assisted death. I will not face the future or live through the mass vaccination die-off of my family and society.

I wasn't going to say anything on this blog about my plans...but when I saw the impact my decision had on my husband...I decided to share it, finally, let him know exactly what HE WAS SAYING TO ME when he "casually let it slip" that he was going to get vaccinated.

When I observed his then occurred to me that I was onto something that needed to be shared with other Outcasts!

I'm not a Whitney fan. He's very limited hangout.
I've long felt that way about his work.

He's just pushing the same coercive angle as the msm. From another angle
If you don't get the vaccine you're an outcast. If enough people don't get it there will be no outcasts. It won't be possible. There are already countries saying you can go and visit- no vaccination required.

No offense intended. That's how he's come across to me for a while.
The power is ours. Let's not give it up.

Penny says:

"...There are already countries saying you can go and visit-no vaccination required..."

But, but, but...what airline will take you there?...IF your country of origin will even let you travel without vaccination."

We're trapped--and we're buggered.

Mike Whitney can write a GEM of an article and his main points come through LOUD and CLEAR!
Greencrow, your antidote is quite unique and sounds like a workable plan to me.It's real sad that it has come to something like this to try and snap(ZAAP!)the Sheeple out of their VAXX trance. Having ones family and friends dying all around one will make life a literal living HELL! :(
I suspect the living hell we are all going to be facing, if the perpZ get their way,is going to be happening sooner than the 14-18 months time frame quoted and I base this on the deaths we are already seeing with young healthy folks dying soon after the death jab.

Penny said...

Greencrow; Money talks. And if airlines and other nations want money- no vaccine passport will be required. Don't take the vaccine and these restrictions will not be doable.

greencrow said...

Hi Penny:

I will never take the vaccine. But planning that has gone into this bloodless communistic coup is far reaching and must have taken decades. Prior to the beginning of the covid nightmare in January 2020, the UN/WHO conducted something that, for lack of a better term, was a global TV fundraising telethon. All the "leaders" of all the countries went on Zoom... or whatever the format and pledged like billion$ of dollars to WHO. Seems like these billions/trillions? of dollars were to bankroll this Reset HOAX.

So, when you say the airlines want money...well they will get withhold services until everyone is vaccinated and chipped. That was what the telethon was raise bribes for all the corporations to play along with the HOAX.

GC and friends,
I think that money scale is so badly tipped that 1% owns everything there is to own on this planet. Common men owns NOTHING but illusion, his house, car and bank account is in hands of 1%,even cash on hand isnt his by default. 2030 is year of completion, for example your cars will be taken off the roads by means of unreachanle cost of registration, availability of fuel and technical inspections, electric cars are comming but only for elite and their servants.
Airlines and other corporate giants under control of 1% and their corporate wigs focus on culling goals than making profits, if they would ground all the planes they wouldnt care because this lemon is fully squeezed and ready to be tossed.

They are baking bread and they took all flour out of a flour bin to bake a loaf, they dont care about bit of flour left in bin corner.

Culling already started and it is cheerfully applauded by masses.
Today nothing can be measured by old standards and principles.

Hi S75p

In the year just before the permanent eradication of international travel I visited Singapore and found it basically as you described above. Over and above the cost of a car it cost $10,000 in license fees to put it on the road. You could only drive it for 10 years and then were forced to buy a new one due to "carbon tax rules".

Last night the police sirens were going on and off all night, I counted seven separate instances of police suicides? They're not reporting on the numbers for fear of waking up the Sheeple.

You are astute watcher.
People in Edmonton are also reporting higher heli traffic.
Turdo clearly said only el. cars by 30.
As an engineer I can assure you that there is absolutely no chance that el. grid can serve current road traffic capacity demand and turdo knows it. Only with drastically reduced population there will be enough el. for elitists to power their el. transportation needs.
If one survives, older (precomputer) antique car (that category has many exclusions) preferably diesel might somewhat extend time of one's mobility combined with skills to avoid road blocks.
Cemetry plots and cremation firewood will be hard to come by.

To endorse my previous flour bin parrable consider this;

greencrow said...

Hi S75p

I have noticed more heli traffic as well. As I alluded to in a comment yesterday...the biggest line-ups will be at the MAIDS clinics. Medical Assistance in Dying will become "all the rage". People will start working on their applications within the next few months...hoping they're "good to go" by the time of the mass cull in 14 to 18 months from now.

Anonymous said...

Likely MAIDS clinic will fast become parallysed and overstretched.
People witnessing huge dieout will be parallysed by fear of the "latest mutation of da virus".
Hostile behaviour amongst people becomes norm. People will demand government foxes to find solutions how to guard chicken house.

Hi S75p

As the saying from WWII goes...

"The Living will envy the dead."

Canadian Wildflower said...

No, no, NO,!!! Please don’t sign up for suicide! That’s not the answer! The answer is faith in Jesus Christ, who offers eternal life to all who come to him. He says, call unto me and I will answer thee. He says, come unto me all ye who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. He says, Whosoever cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. Killing ourselves will put our souls in hell. O, Geencrow, there is hope in Jesus, even if “they” kill us.

Hi CanadianNotCommunist:

Having intuition like I do, I do know what's coming. It is NOT good! I'm battling through some tough times, with the death through malpractice/negligence of one brother and the mRNA vaccination of the other--both at the hands of the so-called "Health System".

The secret of survival is sunshine, Vitamin D and keeping creative. I am battling through...but forgive me if sometimes I seem a bit ragged around the edges : )
