Guest Post: Bill Muehlenberg – “Show Us Your Papers Please”

Hmm, no surprises here: more curfews, more lockdowns, and more manic madness in Dan Andrews’ Dystopian State. We have the harshest lockdown measures in the world, and in a few days we will have had the most lockdown time of any jurisdiction in the world. Way to go Dan. You are such a record-breaker.

You are also a breaker of everything that matters: lives, livelihoods, economies, mental health, relationships, and trust. This power-drunk premier is a full-tilt dictator who thrives on suppressing the masses and keeping us all under his boot.

And it is a jackboot to be precise. I have said many times now that the ominous parallels between what is happening here and what happened in the 1930s in Germany are just too alarming to ignore. Germany did not become a totalist Nazi tyranny overnight: it was an incremental process. And the sorts of things going on there in the 30s are looking far too much like what we are now going through.

Many have spoken to this. One recent essay on the similarities is especially worth drawing your attention to. His title says it all: “This Is 1938: First, They Came for the Unvaccinated.” Here is part of what he wrote:

1938 was not the Holocaust. It was the pre-Holocaust. It was the time before the nightmare, when the foundation was being laid to destroy the freedom, free speech, businesses and lives of millions of Jews. Everything happening today to the American people … to the U.S. Constitution … to freedom … and particularly to unvaccinated Americans reminds me of 1938. This is only the beginning. It gets much worse from here.
First, “the papers.” Vaccine mandates and vaccine passports are just like 1938, when the Gestapo demanded papers from every German. Republicans asked for “papers” from migrants who had broken into our country. Criminals. Democrats said, “No, that’s racism.” Republicans asked for “papers” once every two years for federal elections, to prove you have a right to vote. Democrats said, “No, that’s racism.”

Now Democrats want American citizens, not illegal aliens, not criminals, but patriots born in this country, to produce papers 24/7. We’ll need papers to enter restaurants, bars, nightclubs, concerts, casinos, conventions and hotels and to board a train, plane or bus. We’ll need papers to enter a supermarket, or we’ll starve to death. All for the crime of being unvaccinated….

By the way, this isn’t about vaccines. If you want the vaccine, take it. I’d never stop you. I’d never limit your freedom, your choice. This is about vaccine mandates — forcibly injecting Americans who don’t want it. That’s 1938. But there’s much more in common with 1938. Mask mandates. If you’re scared, wear them. I’m not scared. I don’t want to wear them. Mandates are about forcing individuals to lose their freedom, choice, individuality and human rights. That’s 1938.

Lockdowns are a match with the Warsaw Ghetto. Jews were locked down. Jews couldn’t work. Jews couldn’t travel. Jewish businesses were labelled “nonessential.” If government can force us to close our businesses, to kill our jobs, to decide who is nonessential, then this is 1938. Stars on clothing. It’s coming. The vaccinated get into restaurants, bars, concerts, supermarkets, planes and trains. They keep their jobs. The rest of us are marked as “subhuman” for life. That’s the star. That’s 1938.

I urge you to read the entire piece. But if time constraints – or whatever – work against doing so, then please read this. The short piece making the rounds on the social media really nails it:

I walked into a restaurant to have dinner the other day…

Hostess: Hello.
Me: Hi, table for two, please.
H: Sure, and your name.
M: Black
H: Great. And do you and your guest have your vaccination cards?
M: We do….Can you tell us who our server will be?
H: Um, looks like Tom will be your server tonight.
M: Great. Can you show us Tom’s vaccination card?
H: Um…
M: And also, can you provide me with proof that Tom is not a carrier of HIV, Hepatitis A or B, or any other communicable diseases?
H: Um…
M: Also, we would prefer not to be served by someone who is on or uses recreational drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, meth, fentanyl, etc, so if you could provide us with Tom’s most recent tox screen, that would be great.
H: Um… Let me get the manager for you.
M: That would be great, thanks.
Fair is fair.

    All true and terrifying. We can see, but what can we do? I’ve said many times that simply ignoring, in sufficient numbers, would stop this but that’s where the propaganda comes in – again the same as 1930s Germany. Many people think they’re doing the right thing by obeying and feel validated by helping our oppressors.

    Yes, if unvaccinated people can be denied the products and services that normally are available to any person, I do think it only fair that other factors regarding health and behavioural status of everyone else be taken into account just to be sure, “because we’re not safe until we’re all safe.”

    Health privacy concerns became very important from around the late 1980s because of HIV-Aids. Then, in order not to make pariahs out of HIV infected individuals, people’s private health information became just that, private.

    Those who for whatever reason have decided that they’ll wait this one out should at the very least be able to push back against the health status and/or recreational behaviours of others when these things are associated with a real (or perceived) health risk to them.

    (And if we’re going to get down to the nitty-gritty, an unvaccinated person may not have the dreaded ‘rona but a HIV positive individual clearly has that infection and possibly quite a few STIs, and if they’re cooking my food, handling my shopping or ferrying me around the place there is a risk, though small, to my health).

    So let’s all embrace the New Normal of denigration, humiliation and denial of service for everyone and on whatever is personally concerning to the individual, or let’s not.

    It’s not hard, it just requires Australians, all, to stand up against this disgusting descent into an old and dangerous thinking.

    Ha, Loved the restaurant scene.

    But for any who dont think this is serious RIGHT NOW we have tradies and business people liming up for a medical test every 2 -3 days just to be allowed to work.

    They will waste 3 hours lining up on top of their 8+ hour day to be allowed permission to leave for work the next day.

    Yet in the 2019 Australian pandemic plan (Apparently guided by pre-covid science) 1/2 of the restrictions and mandates are either explicitly ruled out as too draconian or economically dire.

    That plan was binned and the Karenokracy of state clowns took over.$File/w-AHMPPI-2019.PDF

    From page 117 or so, some definitions.
    ‘….Measures of effectiveness
    The following scale has been used in this document to describe effectiveness:
    • high: an overall risk reduction of more than 50%
    • moderate: a risk reduction between 10% and 50%
    • minor: a risk reduction of less than 10%.
    For some measures, it has been noted that no evidence is available.
    ‘….The following scale has been used to describe economic impact:
    • extreme: an impact in the order of hundreds of millions, or billions, of dollars
    • high: an impact in the range of millions of dollars
    • moderate: an impact in the range of hundreds of thousands of dollars
    • minor: a smaller impact…..’

    Some nuts and bolts bits, remember this was all top evidence based science 2 years ago.
    IC3: Mask wearing by symptomatic individuals in the community
    No evidence.

    B7: Thermal scanners
    Not recommended as effectiveness is likely to be low

    B10: Voluntary isolation of ill travellers not requiring hospitalisation

    B11: Quarantine of contacts of ill travellers at the border
    Not recommended.

    B13: Internal travel restrictions (restriction of travel across state or territory borders, or within certain areas of a state or territory, either to protect remote communities or to isolate areas with higher rates of exposure)
    Not recommended in general as benefits are likely to be minor

    SD1: Proactive school closure
    Not generally recommended, however could be considered when there is evidence of high clinical severity and/or high
    transmissibility specifically in children. The level of disruption is likely to outweigh benefits.

    SD2: Reactive school closure
    Not recommended unless the disease has high clinical severity or children are a group at risk of complications

    SD3: Workplace closure
    Not generally recommended. Although some specific workplaces may be able to accommodate closure, it is unlikely that a large
    enough percentage could participate to significantly affect the pandemic’s impact. This measure is only relevant if clinical severity
    is moderate to high.

    SD5: Cancellation of mass gatherings
    Not generally recommended, however, may be considered if the disease has a high clinical severity rate and moderate to high
    transmissibility, at certain stages in the progress of the pandemic.

    An enormous amount of not recommended, or use limited, or no good evidence for is what our CMOs have been running for the last year and a half.

    It is a moment of truth for many of us, isn’t it?

    In recent times I have had friends who have been opposed to vaccination ( not anti-Vaxers, but opposed to improperly tested vax) succumb to the pressure.

    It is not that they have altered their assessment of the vaccines. They variously say that they need to see friends & family & generally, resume their former lives.

    What this constitutes is an absolute denial of their intellectual assessment of the vaccines. These are intelligent people, but the power of emotion, of belonging, & other emotive influences have overcome the possibility of disability from the vaccine.

    It’s a race.
    Will most people hold out against the vax and so prevent the implementation of the vax’s controlling mechanisms, or will most people be vaccinated only to realise that the vax is worthless against the virus and will ultimately not buy freedom.
    So the short sharp race is on about winning over the former before there can be any realisation that the latter is the prize.

    C S Lewis from 1948 – he cites atomic weapons, yet it is just as applicable to COVID-19:

    “How are we to live in an atomic age?” I am tempted to reply: “Why, as you would have lived in the sixteenth century when the plague visited London almost every year, or as you would have lived in a Viking age when raiders from Scandinavia might land and cut your throat any night; or indeed, as you are already living in an age of cancer, an age of syphilis, an age of paralysis, an age of air raids, an age of railway accidents, an age of motor accidents.”

    In other words, do not let us begin by exaggerating the novelty of our situation. Believe me, dear sir or madam, you and all whom you love were already sentenced to death before the atomic bomb was invented: and quite a high percentage of us were going to die in unpleasant ways. We had, indeed, one very great advantage over our ancestors—anesthetics; but we have that still. It is perfectly ridiculous to go about whimpering and drawing long faces because the scientists have added one more chance of painful and premature death to a world which already bristled with such chances and in which death itself was not a chance at all, but a certainty.

    This is the first point to be made: and the first action to be taken is to pull ourselves together. If we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things—praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts—not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs. They may break our bodies (a microbe can do that) but they need not dominate our minds.”

    “fear is the mind killer” and we have allowed fear to rule us.

    Much as I hate to say it, we must fight back – freedom is a great gift given us by our ancestors at great cost in blood and treasure. To give it away without a fight, to allow the beginnings of 1930’s Germany to flourish, is an insult to those brave souls and I will not allow it. Neither should you, nor anyone who loves our country, our lifestyle, our freedoms. No, nien, nyet, non. Never!
    I will start with peacfull civil disobedience.
    I will go as far as I must, as far as I am forced to.
    I will never stop until we are all free.

    I am getting angrier and angrier over this bullshit. At some point, I will snap – something I almost never do. Do not get in my way when this happens, you will regret it. Not a threat, a warning – as the few who have seen it happen will attest.

    “Don’t push me ’cause I’m close to the edge

    It is close, and getting ever closer. If, as and when it happens, someone will get hurt. I don’t want it, I don’t need it, I want to avoid it. But it is unavoidable on our current course.
