> The NHS Just Edited Their Monkeypox Page... To Make It Scarier

They made about four attempts at starting a new scare via
announcing random different bugs since covid, seems they
finally found one they could run with...


"Biden says "everybody" should be concerned about monkeypox."
"WHO "confirms" monkeypox cases."

Lock yourselves down inside your homes! Break out the masks and
prophylactic face-shields! Switch off what’s left of your critical
faculties and prepare yourselves to “follow the Science!”

Yes, that’s right, just as the survivors of The Simulated Apocalyptic
Plague of 2020-2021 were crawling up out of their Covid bunkers and
starting to “build the world back better,” another biblical pestilence
has apparently been unleashed on humanity!

This time it’s the dreaded monkeypox, a viral zoonotic disease endemic
to central and western Africa that circulates among giant pouched
rats, squirrels, dormice, and other rodents and has been infecting
humans for centuries, or millennia. Monkeypox causes fever, headaches,
muscle aches, and sometimes fluid-filled blisters, tends to resolve in
two to four weeks, and thus poses absolutely zero threat to human
civilization generally.

The corporate media do not want to alarm us, but it is their duty as
professional journalists to report that THE MONKEYPOX IS SPREADING
LIKE WILDFIRE! OVER 100 CASES OF MONKEYPOX have been confirmed in
countries throughout the world! MONKEYPOX TASKFORCES are being
convened! Close-up photos of NASTY-LOOKING MONKEYPOX LESIONS are being
disseminated! The President of the United States says “EVERYBODY

The WHO is calling it “a multi-country monkeypox outbreak!” Belgium
has introduced a mandatory quarantine. The CDC has gone to “Alert
Level 2!” “Enhanced precautions” are recommended! In New York City,
the nexus of probably the most paranoid, mask-wearing,
quadruple-“vaccinated” New Normal fanatics on the face of the planet,
the Department of Health is instructing everyone to wear the masks
they are already wearing to protect them from both Covid and
monkeypox, and smallpox, and largepox, and airborne cancer, and God
knows what other horrors might be out there!

Here in the capital of New Normal Germany, Karl Lauterbach, who,
despite wasting hundreds of millions of Euros on superfluous
“vaccines,” attempting to compulsorily “vaccinate” every man, woman,
and child in the country, and otherwise behaving like a fascist
lunatic, remains the official Minister of Health, is excitedly hopping
up and down and hooting like a Siamang gibbon about “recommendations
for isolation and quarantine,” and other “monkeypox containment

As Yogi Berra famously put it, “it’s like déjà vu all over again.”

Except that it isn’t … or it probably isn’t. Before I could even
finish this column, the United GloboCap Ministries of Truth started
dialing down the monkeypox panic. It appears they’re going with “it’s
a gay pandemic,” or an “LGBTQ pandemic,” or an “LGBTQIA+ pandemic,” or
whatever the official acronym is by the time I click the “publish”
button, and making other noises to the effect that it might not be
absolutely necessary this time to order a full-scale global lockdown,
release the drones and robotic dogs, inject everybody with
experimental drugs, and start viciously persecuting “monkeypox

You didn’t really believe they were launching a shot-by-shot remake of
Covid, did you? The showrunners at GloboCap may be preternaturally
evil, but they aren’t stupid. Only the most hopelessly brainwashed New
Normals would go along with another “apocalyptic pandemic” before the
current one has even been officially cancelled. No, unfortunately,
odds are, we’re just getting a preview of what “life” is going to be
like in the New Normal Reich, where the masses will be perpetually
menaced by an inexhaustible assortment of exotic pathogens and
interchangeable pseudo-pathological threats.

The New Normal was never about Covid specifically. It was always about
implementing a new “reality” — a pathologized-totalitarian “reality,”
not so much ruled as discreetly “guided” by unaccountable,
supranational, non-governmental governing entities, global
corporations, and assorted billionaires — in which Covid, or
monkeypox, or kangaroopox, or any other viral zoonotic disease, or any
climate-related or economic development, or aberrant ideological or
behavioral tendency, could be used as a pretext to foment another
outbreak of mindless mass hysteria and impose additional restrictions
on society.

That new “reality” has been implemented … perhaps not as firmly as
originally intended, but implemented nonetheless. We are being
conditioned to accept this new “reality,” as we were conditioned to
accept the War on Terror “reality,” to pointlessly remove our footwear
at the airport, place our liquids in travel-size containers, submit to
groping by “security staff,” and otherwise live in a state of constant
low-level fear of a “terrorist attack,” as we are now being
conditioned to wear masks where we are told, submit to mandatory
“vaccination,” and live in constant low-level fear of the next
purportedly deadly pathogen.

Sadly, most of us will accept this conditioning, and adapt to the
“minor inconveniences” that are being imposed on us at every turn.
After all, what difference does it really make if we have to wear a
little mask on an airplane, or on public transport, or at the doctor’s
office? And is it really such a breach of our fundamental rights to
freedom of speech, freedom of movement, association, privacy, and
basic bodily autonomy if we have to allow governments and global
corporations to censor our political opinions, prevent us from
traveling, forbid us to protest, and force us to submit to invasive
medical treatments in order to hold a job? We got used to taking off
our shoes at the airport and watching the “security staff” fondle our
kids’ genitals, and invading and bombing other countries and murdering
whole families with drones, didn’t we? Surely, we’ll get used to this.

Or … OK, I won’t, and neither will you, probably, but the majority of
the masses will. They just demonstrated that pretty clearly, didn’t
they? As they demonstrated it during the Global War on Terror. As they
demonstrated it during the Cold War. As they demonstrated it … oh,
never mind.

Sorry, I really wanted to end this column on a positive note. All
right, here’s one! A little good news, finally! According to the
professional fact-checkers at Reuters, it turns out “there is no
evidence at all that the World Economic Forum’s annual meeting [which
is taking place in Davos right now] was scheduled to coincide with
these outbreaks of monkeypox,” and anyone who says there is, or
implies there is, or who deviates from or questions the “facts,” or
the “Science,” or whatever, is a “monkeypox-denying,
conspiracy-theorizing, anti-vax, Putin-loving disinformationist,” and
so everything is actually hunky-dory, or it will be as soon as we
teach those evil Rooskies a little thermonuclear lesson!

I don’t know about you, but that’s a load off my mind. For a moment
there, I thought we were in trouble.
