“You Murderous Hypocrites”: Outrage Ensues After The Atlantic Suggests ‘Amnesty’ For Pandemic Authoritarians

The Atlantic has come under fire for suggesting that all the terrible pandemic-era decisions over lockdowns, school closures, masking, and punishing an entire class of people who questioned the efficacy and wisdom of taking a rushed, experimental vaccine – for a virus with a 99% survival rate in most, should all be water under the bridge.

We need to forgive one another for what we did and said when we were in the dark about COVID,” writes Brown Professor Emily Oster – a huge lockdown proponent, who now pleads from mercy from the once-shunned.

“Let’s acknowledge that we made complicated choices in the face of deep uncertainty, and then try to work together to build back and move forward,” she continues.

Except, they weren’t “in the dark” about Covid.  There were numerous sources pointing out the actual science that ran contrary to the mandate claims, and they were deliberately silenced by a vast media campaign.  Evidence suggests that media platforms worked in tandem with Big Tech, the CDC and the Biden Administration.  It was not a simple matter of overreaction, there was collusion to remove all counter-information.  

Nice try, Emily.

As the Daily Sceptic‘s Michael P. Senger puts it: “There’s a lot wrong here. First, no, you don’t get to advocate policies that do extraordinary harm to others, against their wishes, then say, “We didn’t know any better at the time!” Ignorance doesn’t work as an excuse when the policies involved abrogating your fellow citizens’ rights under an indefinite state of emergency, while censoring and cancelling those who weren’t as ignorant. The inevitable result would be a society in which ignorance and obedience to the opinion of the mob would be the only safe position.”

And look at that ratio:

In one epic Twitter thread, Claremont Institute Senior Fellow Matthew J. Peterson (@docMJP) excoriates Oster’s entire premise;

Hey—sorry you lost your job b/c of the vax that doesn’t work and your grandmother died alone and you couldn’t have a funeral and your brother’s business was needlessly destroyed and your kids have weird heart problems—but let’s just admit we were all wrong and call a truce, eh?

It’s too bad we shut the entire economy down & took on tyrannical powers that have never been used before in this country—looking back, you should have been able to go to church and use public parks while we let people riot in the streets—but it was a confusing time for everyone.

Hey I’m sorry we scared the hell out of you & lied for years & persecuted & censored anyone who disagreed but there was an election going on & we really wanted to beat Donald Trump so it was important to radically politicize the science even if it destroyed your children’s lives.

OK, yes we said unvaccinated people should die & not get healthcare while never questioning Big Pharma once but we are compassionate people which is why even though we shut down the entire economy we also bankrupted the nation & caused inflation. You’re welcome! Let’s be friends.

As QTR’s Fringe Finance notes, Oster’s plea for the decency that her ilk failed to offer up to most Americans during the throws of the pandemic comes at a point where the Covid narrative has been all but lost by the Democrats and the mainstream media.

There have been several recent large wins for the unvaccinated who had the constitution and backbone to stand up for themselves throughout a year of being constantly berated and ferociously scorned as second class citizens.

A majority of the media and Democrats had demanded that these people be removed from society and generally subject to scorn and ridicule. Now, in a moment that many of us knew would eventually be coming, apologies are being made around the world for how the unvaccinated were treated.

As Fox News wrote last week:

“The premier of Alberta, Canada, said she is working on a plan to pardon residents who were fined or arrested over breaking coronavirus protocols, and apologized to unvaccinated Canadians who faced ‘discrimination.’“

In New York, a Supreme Court judge recently reinstated all employees who were fired from their jobs for being unvaccinated:

The court found Monday that “being vaccinated does not prevent an individual from contracting or transmitting COVID-19.” New York City Mayor Eric Adams claimed earlier this year that his administration would not rehire employees who had been fired over their vaccination status.

* * *

The problem was not people’s ignorance of the facts, it was the organized antagonism and censorship against anyone presenting data that was contradictory to the mandate agenda. This is setting aside proclamations like those from the LA Times, which argued that mocking the deaths of “anti-vaxxers” might be necessary and justified.  After two years of this type of arrogant nonsense it’s hard to imagine people will be willing to pretend as if all is well.

The active effort to shut down any opposing data is the root crime, though, and no, it can never be forgotten or forgiven.

People are livid

Arizona Gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake (R) wants investigations.

As QTR further notes, many Americans whipped themselves up into such a terrified hypnotic frenzy that they found themselves clinging to big government to impose their will, advocating for the same draconian and fascist-sounding policies they always claim to be fighting against.

For example, Ramussen reported in January 2022 that Democratic voters supported the following Covid policy ideas (my annotations in bold, Rasmussen in normal text):

  • Fines for the unvaccinated: Fifty-eight percent (58%) of voters would oppose a proposal for federal or state governments to fine Americans who choose not to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • House arrest: Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democratic voters would favor a government policy requiring that citizens remain confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Imprisonment for questioning the vaccine: Nearly half (48%) of Democratic voters think federal and state governments should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications.
  • Forced quarantine: Forty-five percent (45%) of Democrats would favor governments requiring citizens to temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Stripping people of their children: Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Democratic voters would support temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine. That’s much more than twice the level of support in the rest of the electorate – seven percent (7%) of Republicans and 11% of unaffiliated voters – for such a policy.

Unsurprisingly, American Federation of Teachers chief Randi Weingarten, who ‘flunked the pandemic‘ by pushing for school shutdowns as long as she possibly could before parents revolted, is a big fan of amnesty.

One cannot help but notice that the timing of the Atlantic’s appeal for passive forgetfulness coincides with the swiftly approaching midterm elections, in which polls suggest a much greater chance of a conservative upset than Democrats previously expected.  Though the Atlantic doesn’t admit it, there is a growing political backlash to the last two years of meaningless lockdowns and mandates, and Democrats were instrumental in the implementation of both.  A large swath of the population sees one party as the cause of much of their covid era strife.

Perhaps the mainstream media is suddenly realizing that they may have to face some payback for their covid zealotry?  “We didn’t know! We were just following orders!”  It all sounds rather familiar.

  1. I know bullshit when I hear it. It is the crap you are talking. I have watched all those videos and done my research. Viruses exist , they are the name given to the diseases causing the flu, measles etc. it is a psyop like flat earth and you have been sucked in.

  2. Fulford’s report this week seems to be very hopeful. Pay close attention to the first vid at the top in the report and it’s easy to see what’s going on….the steal is in and tomorrow is NOT in the bag for the Republicans……what is in that vid is beyond the pale. Why no one had this guy arrested for election tampering is beyond me: (only allowing dems to vote?…Give me a big break. This is outrageous.


  3. In regard to Musk….a letter to Fulford and his reply:

    Letters to the Editor

    “Always lose me when making wild unsubstantiated claims. I’ll give you the possibility Elon isn’t the saviour of free speech. Sure.

    But to claim his rockets are cgi videos as a money making scam?! The completely insane amount of work and technological advances required for teslas auto piloting system. The fact StarLink is being used in the Ukraine.

    Just throws your credibility in everything else you say under the bus. In my opinion.”

    You are partially right, I used Starlink satellites myself this summer to access the internet while in the Canadian wilderness.
    However, he has also been caught using computer graphic fakes like when he said he sent a tesla car into space as a publicity stunt when tesla stock prices were tumbling.
    What is clear is that Musk is using DARPA technology paid for with tax payer money for private gain.
    He is also a proven vaccine and fake pandemic pusher. He is a KM controlled “white hat.”
    -Benjamin Fulford


  4. We all catch bthe flu from others and pass it on. The story that viruses don’t exist is phony, just like the flat earth. But whatever covid was, they had no right to lock us up, they should be hung for treason.

    1. In the way bacteria and other pathogens have, no VIRUS of any kind has ever been isolated. That is an indisputable fact. The images we see are computer generated.

      1. Viruses exist and they are different to bacteria. Viruses cause diseases luke the flu. Just because you believe things does make them true. Have a look at reality. The bulldust you are repeating is like saying the earth is flat, you have fallen for a psyop. I have had, flus,measles,chicken pox, etc they are real. You cannot explain their existance by saying some isolation theory that was devised for bacteria , when bacteria were just being discovered , before they had investigated viruses, could not be used on viruses. Sure the covid is a scam and I do not know the full truth, but they did hyoe the statictics, they did lock us up against our will, they caused more damage with the vaccines and lockdown than they ever could have stopped. I do not know lots of things, but there are viruses.

      2. BillAu…It’s not a question of “belief”, it’s a question of research…try it……you might learn something.

      3. I know without research viruses exist. I also know viruses exist even after watching many so called research you suggest. You are wrong and following a psyop like flat earth. The covid vax & lockdown were dodgy I know that. But viruses exist. Your “no virus exist mates” are a psyop. They have no ‘really convincing” explanation for what we call the flu measles chickenpox etc. Those diseases are real, and the name of their cause is viruses. A disease by any other name would smell as sweet.

      4. “I know WITHOUT RESEARCH viruses exist.”
        Well, BillAu, that pretty much sums it up.
        Continually shooting oneself in the foot CAN cause serious damage.

      5. “I know WITHOUT RESEARCH viruses exist.”
        Well, BillAu, that pretty much sums it up.
        Continually shooting oneself in the foot CAN cause serious damage.
        Yes I know without research from reality that people get diseases like the flu, measles, chicken pox, because I and others I know have caught them. That is reality. Facts are proven by reality. Research is just trying to unders tan REALITY. Reality is what science tries to explain.

      6. James H. Fetzer
        The truth is diseases exist. Those dieaese include flu, measles, chickenn pox, rabies. You cannot deny they exist. The common name for their cause is viruses. Something causes those diseases.

      7. https://www.richplanet.net/ show 45 parts 2&3
        Evidently this guy studies biology. He believes genics cannot explain hoe things grow and operate. That there non-visible field around life (like auras). He even did a controlled experiment on a parrot, it was roved it could read its owners mind. I would suggested the spiritual like things. For instance when people are following someonenthey usually do not stare at their back or the eprson will feel it and turn around. Long term memory is probably stored outside the brain.

      8. I’ll tell you something, BillAU….ad hominem attacks ( You a re a fool.) do not get it here on this blog.
        Cease and desist.
        Quite surprised Fetz let it go.

      9. Had not noticed. I will take a look. Do not approve of ad homs.

        BillAU: No more ad homenems! I have edited them out. NO MORE.

      10. BillAu…No one is denying diseases exist. The discussion is about their cause. And, in spite of what the common medical narrative says, no virus has ever been isolated and even the CDC has admitted that. I would advise listening to Dr. Andrew Kaufmann or Dr. Cowan, who both have video on Jim’s Bitchute channel along with others who present extremely viable evidence for the non-existence and non-isolation of viruses. Most, if not all, believe it’s the bodies reaction to some kind of adverse conditions, toxins or just a simple bodily growth process.

      11. Viruses exist and if Will2 wants say they don’t he is wrong and he is shooting himself in the head, which is more dangerous than the foot , which I never did. Virus is the word to explain diseases like the flu. Even Don says they seem to have swapped flu and pneumonia (an infection in one or both of your lungs caused by bacteria, viruses or fungi. When there is an infection in the lungs, several things happen, including: Your airways swell (become inflamed) The air sacs in the lungs fill with mucus and other fluids). Actually I had pneumonia when I was young. Well the flu is still a virus, but I believe that this one called covid existed but there is a lot exagerated stuff, etc, I do not claim to know whether Gates made it etc. When we get diseases like the flu measles chickenpox etc we call them viruses, they exist.

      12. Knowledge like everything is infinite. This guy says tere is resonance that helps things repeat, that genetics doe not explain things grow by repeating becomes easier and quicker, etc, but there is also creation etc, how new things come. This must have an application for viruses. Creation and propagation/repetition. Rupert Sheldrake https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5A8K0kbkmBk

      13. Proverbs 27:3 English Standard Version 2016 (ESV)
        A stone is heavy, and sand is weighty, but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both.

      14. BillAu…Yet again, you fail to address the issue which is an isolated virus and an image of such that cause the diseases you mention. You repeatedly explain that “disease” is real, which I do not dispute. I have provided videos which you have obviously not cared to view or you would have commented on the content. And once again, you hint at my being a fool from a bible quotation.
        Remember this, I was NOT foolish enough to take an experimental jab and you were. With that, I will put my end of this “debate” to rest unless you can come back after watching at least one of those videos and present evidence that refute it.

      15. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inoculation
        Inoculation is the act of implanting a pathogen or other microorganism. It may refer to methods of artificially inducing immunity against various infectious diseases, or it may be used to describe the spreading of disease, as in “self-inoculation,” the spreading of disease from one part of the body to another, or even to the spreading of bacteria in a Petri dish for culturing purposes. The terms “inoculation”, “vaccination”, and “immunization” are often used synonymously, but there are some important differences among them. Inoculation is the act of implanting a disease inside a person or animal, vaccination is the act of implanting or giving someone a vaccine specifically, and immunization is what happens to the immune system as a result.

      16. A virus is a submicroscopic infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of an organism.[1] Viruses infect all life forms, from animals and plants to microorganisms, including bacteria and archaea.[2][3] Since Dmitri Ivanovsky’s 1892 article describing a non-bacterial pathogen infecting tobacco plants and the discovery of the tobacco mosaic virus by Martinus Beijerinck in 1898,[4] more than 9,000 virus species have been described in detail[5] of the millions of types of viruses in the environment.[6] Viruses are found in almost every ecosystem on Earth and are the most numerous type of biological entity.[7][8] The study of viruses is known as virology, a subspeciality of microbiology.
        Proverbs 26:4-5 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you yourself will be just like him. Answer a fool according to his folly, or he will be wise in his own eyes” “I used to have trouble with this one, do not , then do, either way you cannot stop a fool.


  5. What about american soldiers taking orders in Vietnam,Irag,Afghanistan,the yanks have wrought havock all over the world. And James Fezter still wants conscription.

  6. The holocaust was not what we were told. The real figure is hundreds of thousands, not 6 million. All Germany was subject to starvation, and so that flowed on to the concentration camps. What about rthe fire bombing of Dresden in Germany? What about Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Trump is just part of the system, he is better than Biden and Hillary, but he still had photos taken with bfake shooting victims.

  7. Flu is extremely contagious and was used as the scapegoat for covid 19 and all of the so-called variants. The entire covid thing was very phony and only existed in the imagination of its ”imagineers”. My two surgeons and 5 nurses at the VA Hosp told me the whole covid thing was BS.


    1. Ib am glad you see viruses exist, those saying they don’t exist have fallen for a psyop like flat earth. I went for a long time saying I was not sure if the virus existed. My brother’s girlfriend’s daughter worked for a no-vax doctor. She had the vax, the doctor didn’t. A patient passed the viruse on to them. She did not get sick, he nealy died. He changed his tune, and I nrealised the virus existed, despite the fact there was fake statisics etc. I also did work at a nurse’s house. She worked in the covid wards. She seemed sincere and that also swayed my theory. I was some type of hoax, but thgere was some truth to it, I had the vax, it seemed to make me get pains in the stomache. I am still alive. The bwholething coukld be economic,they had negative interest rates, but now they don’t.

    2. I heard a man rang in on the radio, he had a heart attack after getting the vax. The doctoirs would just say take a headache tablet. I did a job for a guy the other week, I told him about the guy on the radio. He said that was not his son, but the same thing happened to his son. His son had the vax then had a heart attack and has been an invalid ever since. The other year I di ajob for a guy, three of his mates commited suicide because the loackdown drove them to it. I also did another job for someone whose mate died from suicideing because of the lockdown. Now our governement wants to build more psych hospitals. Well how about not locking us down and causing the problem in the first place.

  8. The idea of blanket amnesty is beyond perposterous. It’s galaxies and light years past ludicrous. I had one friend we call One-Upper-Mark say I was going to be “Darwined” when I said no, hell no and not on your life to the Vaxx. He now has a chronic crying eye condition where one eye always tears up. We call him One-Upper because if I just returned from climbing Everest, he would say “yeah I climbed Everest and K2 on back to back days”.

    1. Dave, on some level of consciousness or unconsciousness we knew this would happen. When has the government or its minions ever been held to account for any atrocity? Wars? Invasions? Assassinations? Endless false flags? Human experimentation? Indigenous genocide? Fake elections? And now we are faced with voting for a president who pushed the jab as much as anyone else, doing what we have done all our lives….voting for the lesser of two evils because that position is inaccessible to anyone from the ranks of us peasants. Something is seriously wrong with this picture…..more wrong than any “(s)election” can fix.

      1. I watched an interview today that I found very convincing. There’s an international consortium of scientists that has examined 2300 different batches of vaccines covering all the major brands. They are experts in many disciplines… for example chemists, virologists, biotechies, MDs and others. Their consensus is that the Vaxx is not a bio-weapon, it’s a chemical weapon. They did not find any MrNA or any other biologicals. They found no spike proteins! What they found was a toxic cocktail of heavy metals including radioactive strontium. They also found hydrogel, polysorbate80 and aluminum. They found no snake venom or any other life based sources. But they did find nanotech that self assembled into minute antennas! They found no placebos! Only different concentrations of the same toxic and deadly ingredients spanning all the vaccine brands. I hope everyone watches and gives their opinion here. Oh there’s some good news… there is no vaccine shedding because they found no MrNA, no spike proteins.


      2. Will…I watched a couple videos from your Bit chute link, even more hard hitting! I just saw this one from a Son of Enos that’s very informative. He goes a few different directions, all of which are good. Especially his compilation of the Jews far and wide confessing they view that all non-Jews as their slaves and are responsible for the unarmed third world invasion of Europe designed to displace White Christians. He also convincingly lays blame for the fake-demic at the Jews’ doorstep. It’s an eye opener I had not considered before in many ways.


      3. You all have to see this hilarious parody of the old hit song ‘Pina Colada’ where they replace it with ‘Subpoena’ and Coma-Joe singing it. It’s brilliant comic relief and we need a shit ton more if that! It’s at the 1hr 14 minute mark.


    1. Don, you’ve got it wrong, pardner. Trump was always skeptical of how COVID emerged and how serious it was; he quickly put in place travel restrictions on cruise ships and entry from China and then Europe to protect the U.S., only to be roundly criticized on both counts. He was the ONLY national politician who argued against lockdowns and made available massive amounts of resources to fight COVID and encouraged novel treatment approaches. He replaced Fauci with Altas as the spokesman for the COVID national response so there would be a more honest narrative from the government. And, while he pushed the vaccine delivery, he did so primarily 1) as part of his responsibilities to calm the public and show presidential leadership, and 2) to eliminate the need for the continuing and disastrous lockdowns. Most importantly, he has to this day always been against any coercive measures to require COVID vaccinations. As in many other areas, Trump did what he could but he was sabotaged at every turn by the establishment and its deep state operatives in the CDC and other governmental agencies.

      1. It was Trump that got it wrong William not me. It was Trump that was desperate to make a vaccine and to manufacture breathing machines which actually were used to kill people. The warp speed vaccines are extremely dangerous. Trump even allowed goofball Fauci to speak his BS from the Presidential lectern in the Oval Office. It was Trump that approved of the insane Fauci lockdowns that caused thousands of businesses to permanently close and BTW are still closed to this day.

      2. William, although I have mentioned this in previous comments, I think it bears repeating. I have been following Trump’s rallies for quite a while. Early on, he would never fail to mention Warp Speed. In at least the last four rallies (including last night in Latrobe, Pa, which I watched from start to finish) he has not said a word re Warp Speed or his part in getting the vax to market. He may be softening, but I would love to hear an actual verbal mea culpa. In any case, this is not a time to cast ones vote for anyone other than a Republican IF one cares to live in a true democratic republic and NOT under communism. We have never been closer to the “IF” in Benjamin Franklin’s … “A republic IF you can keep it”.

  9. …….and do not miss some of the comments on that article…4400 +….Here’s a few of the best:


    Never forget what these bastards wanted you to do and what they attempted to take from you!

    i’ll never forget what they attempted to take from my kids

    I hope Zeldin’s campaign is pounding the hell out of the witch of NY since her administration is appealing the ruling that it was wrong to fire employees.

    As she said herself, “She’d do it all again”.

    Kids kept from school for TWO YEARS (mine included) suffer the worst decline in test scores in history. And now that they’re back in do they get heavy emphasis on catching them back up? No, they don’t concentrate on that at all. They spend precious hours getting taught that they should be trans and hide it from their parents by people who say that parents should have no say in their children’s educations.

    And they want forgiveness while simultaneously demanding more power.

    This is the easiest answer in the history of history. NO.

  10. Its like saying we should forgive the Nazi Camp Guards because they thought that putting people in Concentration Camps was for their own good.

    I recall the horror of the lockdowns. It was like being a prisoner in my own home for years.
