For what?

#1 Post by Chuck »

78 years ago today my Uncle Charlie, a Canadian Soldier in the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment was killed in action in Sicily (Operation Husky) fighting people who wliked to experiment on people and either wipe them out or subjugate them.

Such an enemy also forced people they considered as "inferior" to wear badges that excluded them from places and travel and ensured they were treated as second class citizens - or disposable and ensured that people always had to show their papers please on demand! Their businesses were destroyed and properties confiscated and given to the party faithfull!

Looking at what's going on in the world right now I need to ask - "What was the fricking point"! This entire scenario is being rolled out again across the planet and people are actually HAPPY to accept it and comply! WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! wallhead wallhead wallhead wallhead

Sorry you died for nothing Uncle Charlie :cry: :cry: :cry: - but the son you never saw turned out just fine!!

I think your uncle would put you over his knee and give you a bloody good spanking for trying to compare what the Nazis got up to with current attempts to get to grips with Covid.

I'll reappraise my views when the authorities begin burning Northern cities to the ground and start rounding up party goers to machine gun them in fields.

That's probably the most disrespectable thing I have ever read. You should be ashamed of your self.

You mean Chuck trivializing the sacrifices made fighting the Nazi scourge by liking them to the small sacrifices / inconveniences we're currently having to endure under our current governments in an effort to tackle Covid?

Or me having the temerity to point that out?

But if that's the most disrespectful thing you've ever read ... well clearly you're not much of a reader.

Of course, you could just be in your cups again.

Are you for REAL?? wallhead wallhead

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." Do you HONESTLY think all these restrictions will be realexed??? Dream on!

It was people like you living in denial, pretending it would never happen, gullible enough to follow the sheep - or just plain scared who allowed these things to happen back then, and history IS repeating itself!!

If you cannot see what is happening right in front of you right now then seriously dude - are you smart enough to hold an FAC? certainly if you wear a poppy on Remeberance Day that smacks of hypocrisy of the worst kind!

Pass laws, Apartheid, Discrimination, denial of entry and travel, possible denial of entry to FOOD sources etc - and an experimental potion the manufacturers take no liability for which is so good people are having to be FORCED to take it! Seriously......What part of this is any different from the 1930's in Italy and Germany! In some countries, speaking against it can get you jailed...hmm yeah that sounds familiar!

So by your attitude, you are all for restriction of rights and civil liberties, freedom of choice, the Universal Digital ID, Digital Wallet, discrimination based on peoples beliefs etc etc..Being jabbed does not keep you or anyone else any safer.. it's a bit like having a gun free zone sign! We all know how well they work! If your jabs work why worry about the unjabbed?? Maybe because they do NOT work as you were led to believe!

Yeah, he certainly died for nothing alright if you think all of the above is OK for a virus that has a VERY VERY high survival rate! You should be ashamed of yourself.

All government restrictions have been removed, I think??

We have had "Freedom Day" and now everything in the garden is rosy.

Covid is really a state of mind and if the 100,000 + that have died from it hadn't "cowered" in fear they would have lived, so there you have it. Simple now we can just go on as if the whole episode had never happened just a bit of mass hysteria that is all it was.

Well at least according to the fools that we have "governing" us.

Society globally is more divided than ever over various issues and the division being created between the vaccinated/unvaccinated, mask wearers/non-mask wearers is yet another wedge driving society apart......divide and conquer comes to mind.

Some will say "put your tin-foil hat on" or "you're talking rubbish" but I believe this, and other things that are going on is all part of something larger and insidious and I believe it will ultimately lead to the formation one global central government that will control every aspect of peoples lives and it will be ushered in off the back of a major event such as an even worse pandemic that will make this one look like a trial run (perhaps a "deadlier" Covid variant?) or a major enviromental disaster or whatever and it will be sold to the masses as being the only way to ensure the future of mankind and that it's formation will be for our own good and will also save the enviroment etc etc but in reality it will be a global bureucratic socialist government that will make the old USSR look like Utopia.

If you look at the United Nations Sustainable Developement Goals and Agenda 2030 those goals won't be achieved with sovereign nations all working toward them at different rates as they are now and the only way those goals can and will be achieved is through there being one global central government controlling everything from the production and distribution of food and resources to where people live and work, it has already been stated that they want the worlds population to live in "walkable cities" where private transport is no longer required, thereby reducing emissions, as everything you need from work to food and leisure activities are all provided in identical city blocks and people in rural areas will be relocated into the cities and the countryside will be set aside for food production on massive collective farms.......as an example of a walkable city is The Line

We are living in strange times and I believe they will only get stranger and the vast majority of people are either blind to what is going on, think it would never happen or just prefer to stick their heads in the sand and label anyone that is a critical thinker that doesn't have their head stuck in the tv watching mind-numbing crap whilst consuming readily available junk food like it's going out of fashion as a conspiracy theory believing nutter!.

If you were a rational person given to sensible discussion I might bother to spare you more time than it took to type this. But I can feel my long dead grandfather standing behind me (British Expeditionary Force, Dunkirk, North Africa, Sicily, Italy and finally Berlin) "you're not seriously going to entertain replying to his absurd rant?"

As a libertarian I'm not at all happy with a lot of measures and will not be co-operating with them and protest them (apart from the mask - I really like not being bothered in the street). But I will not under any circumstances stoop to the crass assertion that what we're going through is in any shape or form anything like the suffering endured under the Nazis or Axis forces. It's a childish sulk of an argument.

I see Rishi Washy our chancellor is proposing doing away with cash - the next step perhaps? But then, I'm just a stupid conspiracy theorist!
