We hear a lot about what is styled “misinformation.”
It is one of those words meant to slam shut the door on information. The talking about stuff, so as to know – to find out – exactly what we are talking about. To establish whether it is true as opposed to us being told it is true – and we’d better just stop talking about it.
Shut up. I don’t want to hear it.
And – worse – you are badly motivated for saying whatever you just said.
Not just shut up. Be ashamed.
For even thinking it.
And for that reason, precisely, we ought to be thinking – and saying – it.
Who gets to decide what “misinformation” is? Why not let information decide?
If – for instance – these “vaccines” are safe as advertised, then why not let the information make the case? Or rather: Why would it not make the case – assuming they are, indeed, safe?
VAERS has been around a lot longer than the “pandemic.” Prior to the “pandemic,” it was considered a reliable means of discovering crucially important information – the canary in the coal mine – about possible problems with vaccines.
What would you think about the safety record of a new car you were thinking of buying if you were told (all of a sudden) to ignore information suggestive of problems with that car? If that particular car were being pushed really hard on you by a salesman? Just ignore the record of safety problems filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s system for public reporting of problems with cars.
It’s all just . . . “misinformation”!
Would you be . . . hesitant to buy that car? One that Consumer Reports also warned about buying?
No one (yet) suggests that Consumer Reports be de-platformed. That NHTSA’s reporting system for defects with cars be ignored by the owners of those cars.
Ah, but the information collected by VAERS is “misinformation.”
How so, though? Rather, how are we to know – if we’re not allowed to examine the available information and establish whether it is true? Doesn’t blanking out the information lead to . . . “misinformation”?
The same problem crops up, interestingly enough, as regards information that could give us the straight dope – counter any supposed “misinformation” – regarding the connection that appears to exist between other vaccines (not in air fingers quotes this time because these vaccines at least purport to immunize whereas the new “vaccines” do not do even that) and the weird, as-yet-unexplained spike in autism in children?
The makers of vaccines have the records of exactly which kids took what and when – going back decades. The health insurance cartels have records of exactly which kids got sick and when – also going back decades. It is a great deal of information. If it were openly available, would it not dispel any “misinformation” about vaccines?
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has been asking these very questions for some time. He has yet to receive the information that would give him – give us – the answers.
Instead, he is accused of peddling “misinformation.”
Well, how would we know it?
Bad people with things to hide are expert at silencing questions by impugning the motives of the questioners. In avoiding having to answer hard questions by making the asking, itself, hard. By imputing to it a kind of moral obscenity.
These people rely on our good faith to hide their bad faith.
How dare you! – as one of these people likes to say.
But this only works to the degree we are willing to tolerate accepting their premises; of draping ourselves with guilt for the things we’ve not done.
Or even thought.
You are not afraid of cross-dressers – i.e., “transphobic” – for questioning the doctrine that biological sex is fungible. If it is, information will show it. Let’s have a look at the chromosomes of the trans person. If it is both male and female – or female rather than male, then the information will support the contention and it would be right to expect that he be referred to as she – and so on.
If however the information does not support it, then “he” has no place on her swimming team – or in her locker room.
the “vaccines” are safe as advertised, then the information will support the contention – and no more of this bother about . . . “misinformation.”
Some are of course afraid of such information. Their argument is that bad information – what they characterize as “misinformation” – is so powerful it will drown out the valid information; i.e., the truth.
This is demonstrably false – because it never happens. When people are free to discuss information, misinformation – the actual stuff, without the air-fingers-quotes – inevitably, always loses.
Because falsehoods cannot be supported, indefinitely.
The Earth is a sphere, not flat. And the sun is the center of the solar system – not the Earth. Incantations do not cause eclipses. The gods are not angry.
Two plus two equals four – not five.
And you are not a bad person for asking why – especially when someone insists it equals five.
