By now everyone knows what the rules are in a modern multicultural Covid-compliant “democracy”. There is only one permissible opinion on any given topic except possibly what color socks you can wear (and maybe even on that). Acceptable opinions are determined by the state acting in consultation with major media outlets and Big Tech. Anyone who expresses a divergent opinion is labeled a “threat to democracy” and may be subject to ostracism, loss of employment, punitive administrative measures, arrest, prosecution, imprisonment, or some combination of these.
That’s what “democracy” means in the third decade of the 21st century. People who support “democracy” must agree with state-approved opinions. Or else.
The following account shows local “democracy” in action in the German state of Saxony. Many thanks to Hellequin GB for translating this article from Die Welt. The translator’s comments are in square brackets:
“Being against protective measures is no reason to take to the streets”
According to Saxony’s Minister-President Michael Kretschmer, some of the people who protest against the Corona measures can no longer be convinced by arguments. The CDU politician spoke out in favor of more vigorously combating misinformation on the Internet.
Saxony’s Minister-President Michael Kretschmer (CDU) believes that some people are no longer open to arguments in the debate about Corona policy. “Unfortunately, the attempt to present the situation differently with arguments often tends to strengthen the [contrary] opinion,” he told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. “That’s why you have to say honestly: You won’t reach a certain part of the population. But we as politicians must not be the ones who give up on people.”
Kretschmer expressed clear criticism of the protest rallies against the Corona measures . He said: ”I could understand it if people took to the streets and shouted: ‘We need more vaccines! We need more medication!’ That would be a reason. To be against protective measures that save human lives is not.” The measures would be taken so that fewer people die, stressed Kretschmer. That is “such a great ethical and moral good that you cannot demonstrate against it — at least as a person not directly affected.” The CDU politician also called for better measures to be taken against the spread of false information in social networks and by messenger services such as Telegram. [I wonder by how much his personal portfolio grew since the beginning of this Plandemic? Must be substantial.]
There was “so much fake news and deliberate disinformation that it causes enormous damage,” he said. “I believe that we have to intervene more regulatively there, because from my point of view this is a threat to democracy.”
Last week Kretschmer had already warned of a further escalation of the Corona protests. “There are also mayors, journalists, scientists and judges who have been threatened,” he had told the newspapers of the Funke media group. “We have to defend the institutions of our free and democratic basic order — also on social media.” That is why “the rule of law must act before the first deaths occur.” [if that’s the case, why don’t they rein in their mercenaries masquerading as police?]
