Everything For the Corona, Nothing Outside the Corona

Below are three COVID-related articles from Europe, all published in German by PolitikStube and translated by Hellequin GB. Two of them concern the use of propaganda about the Wuhan Coronavirus in the service of political and governmental power. The third is more upbeat: Denmark has set a date to abandon all Corona measures and resume normal life.

The first article features sensible remarks on COVID-19 by the leftist German politician Oskar Lafontaine:

Oskar Lafontaine on Covidiots, abuse of power and megalomania

Oskar Lafontaine is still one of the last politicians with halfway sensible views and is proving to be a voice of reason in the Corona hysteria. As early as July, the Saarland resident posted open words on Facebook about the federal government’s Corona policy, and now Lafontaine is criticizing the clauses in the contracts with Pfizer / BioNTech and the vaccination offers for children and adolescents between 12 and 17 years of age.

Comment from Oskar Lafontaine:

You always get surprises. When I read the leaked contracts with Pfizer / BioNTech on the “NachDenkSeiten”, I was speechless. It actually says: “The buyer acknowledges that the long-term effects and effectiveness of the vaccine are not currently known and that the vaccine may have undesirable effects that are not currently known… The buyer hereby agrees to exempt Pfizer, BioNTech, their affiliated companies, (and) to defend from and against all lawsuits, claims, actions, demands, losses, damages, liabilities, severance payments, penalties, fines, costs and expenses.”

The politicians who conclude such contracts are the real Covidiots. The mRNA technology was also advanced through the state-funded basic research and the development of the vaccines was promoted with hundreds of millions. Pfizer / BioNTech now expects profits of $33.5 billion this year. The least would have been if repayments to the state had been agreed in the event of exorbitant profits — not to mention the tragedy of the release of patents to the developing countries, which get what is not needed in the affluent countries.

The recommendation of the health ministers of the federal states to offer vaccines to children and adolescents between 12 and 17 years of age falls under the abuse of power and megalomania. What are these amateur political actors actually thinking of? Unlike the manufacturer, do you know the long-term effects of the vaccine, and do you already know that the vaccine will not have any undesirable effects? Starting with the banker, political scientist and pharmaceutical lobbyist [Jens] Spahn — what professional skills do these ladies and gentlemen actually refer to?

It is a bright spot in these times, when many have forgotten how to think clearly, that there are people out there who publish the gag contracts with Pfizer / BioNTech, and that there are scientists on the Standing Vaccination Commission and pediatricians who are willing to take the pressure of the pharmaceutical lobbyists and resist the politicians who are intoxicated with Covid.

Afterword from the translator:

Personally, I never liked Oskar Lafontaine, but that had nothing to do with his leftist politics, but rather more with what I knew/perceived about him while growing up and before he became a full-time politician, since my mum was a good friend of his first wife and the Lafontaines were frequent dinner guests. I must say that the man speaks more sense NOW than he ever did before. But that’s just my impression, and observed from over 6,000 miles away.

The second article is about vax promotion targeting Germans on holiday in Spain:

SPD advertises the Corona vaccination on Mallorca with posters

According to a spokesman for the agency, the posters were put up by a service provider in Mallorca on Wednesday night. The location around the Ballermann is of course no coincidence. After all, the party on the stretch of beach was almost going on as it had been before Corona. And many of those celebrating there are not yet or at least not fully vaccinated. At the same time, the vaccination rhythm in Germany is already noticeably slowing down.

[The poster reads: Darling, get me a Dose as a Gift!]

Translator’s note:

I chose the word “Gift” deliberately over “Present”, because in German “Gift” means POISON.

Finally, the good news from Denmark:

While the pressure is increasing in Germany, Denmark is lifting all Corona measures

The people in Merkel’s Germany can only dream of this: In Denmark, all Corona measures will be discontinued from October 1, 2021 — the time of the annoying mask requirement, the nerve-wracking proof of a vaccination, recovery or a negative test. Denmark is preparing to return to normal life. They also have no Lauterbach, Spahn, Wieler, Drosten and, above all, no Merkel.

RT German:

The Parliament in Copenhagen recently decided that all Corona measures should be ended from October 1st. There will therefore no longer be a mask requirement and the test regime will be abolished. The Danes will then no longer have to provide evidence of whether they are vaccinated or unvaccinated, or whether they have tested positive or negative.

All Corona measures are being discontinued in view of the increasing incidence figures in Denmark. Since the beginning of July this number has risen from 31 to 107.2 (as of August 8). At the same time, the upper limits of this Corona indicator is being increased significantly. In municipalities the incidence limit rises from 300 to 500, in districts the value even doubles from 500 to 1,000. However, the prerequisite is that the hospitals can treat the presumably expected increasing numbers of COVID-19 patients without any problems, without bottlenecks in the security of the health system.

Overall, the current vaccination rate is just under 58.4 percent of fully vaccinated people in Denmark. In Germany, this number is only slightly lower at 54.5 percent (as of August 8).
