You might want to correct your mom. It’s not the delta variant that scares, it’s the media that’s scaring her. She doesn’t know anything about the delta variant.

Ideally, but in reality they just shut down or roll their eyes and ignore you as crazy.

You can't start off with the stuff about interdimensional child-trafficking lizard demons using the gene therapy vaccine as a population control tool for the global banking elite.

You have to use arguments that they will understand.

This. This propaganda fools even reasonably intelligent people. The problem is most people believe that the mainstream media cannot lie to them.

That thought alone is horrifying to them, so they stick their head in the sand and play along to social cues.

Because it's all brainwashing and conditioning from childhood, from school to the media they consume. Life is easier to just "obey". Because they are taught to worship add not question the mighty puscience - lord of lies.

Millipede1776 10 points ago +10 / -0

I agree with this. As someone who has won over their family, you start off with nice things and you joke with them.

Then you come home pissed off and say something like "I know you disagree but something happened at work and I just need someone to rant to."

And then you go HAM. Get angry, start debating with a fake person and not directly at them. And then laugh it off and thank them for the "therapy."

After a few months of doing this time to time, she started to come home angry the same way I did because someone said something stupid and her arguments started to match mine.

It might take a while but the most important thing is for her to hear the conservative perspective(and for it to be the correct perspective). My very liberal aunts and grandmother have become even more suspicious than I am, of the government and so forth.

The Delta variant doesn't exist.

There is a video my wife showed me of a girl calling the top 10 biggest testing companies asking about a specific Delta variant test. They all said there is none.

Because there is no delta variant.

mestama 163 points ago +164 / -1

I do immunology research, but am right with most of this site. Let me clarify. It does exist. It's technical name is SARS-CoV-2 lineage B.1.617.2. It's most notable mutations from the original covid-19 are three changes in the spike protein that change three amino acids from small aliphatic or aromatic to large positive amino acids. There are three important things to note about this variant. The first is its lineage name. The 617 means that there were 615 other variants that were catalogued before the delta variant that no one cared about. That leads to the second point that one of the laws of epidemiology is that pathogens evolve towards co-existence with their host. In practice that means that mutations lead towards higher contagiousness and lower severity. The reason why no one cared about the other 615 is that they didn't make people as sick. The delta variant probably doesn't either. The last point is that where the mutations are is really interesting. The vaccines only allow you to immunize yourself to the spike protein. Natural immunity would allow you to immunize yourself to any of the other parts of Covid-19. That means that those who took the vaccine are susceptible to mutations in the spike protein because they won't have any of the back-up immunity to the other parts of Covid-19. Now the dominant variant has mutations in the spike protein... That vaccinated people can't fight off... Oh and most of the severe outbreaks are in heavily vaccinated countries...

Fuck is it nice to have a useful comment like this.

I'm just an idiot but I keep telling people here and in life that diseases do not want you to die as that kills them too. Variants should be welcomed. At least versus the original, Chinese strain that Italy had for example.

Covid was a thing that especially took out old or sick people. With the odd exception that always got highlighted by the news.

Now at this point it is the fucking flu and not a bit more. And yes, people can die from the flu. Suck it up buttercups.

20
Megascandal 20 points ago +20 / -0

I suspect that the mRNA Guinea Pigs might also have weaker immune systems as a long term side effect of the mad science.

But your point is something I expected for a long time. Viruses mutate rapidly and evolution selects for not killing the host as that also kills the virus in the host. I've thought that it might be possible that it has already mutated to be less deadly because the infections in China and Italy seemed significantly worse than the rest of the world, but only for roughly the January and early Feb period. That seemed like a good explanation too me, though the major disinfo campaign was already in swing so it might have just been lies and the fog of war.

Ethrwaze 10 points ago +10 / -0

I believe that a lot of the vaccinated people likely also have weaker immune systems from hiding away from civilization and the sun in their homes all day.

They've been actively lowering people's immune systems by forced over-sanitization by proxy of fear campaigns based around "germs" for YEARS now.

Arwyn3x 6 points ago +6 / -0

... but only for roughly the January and early Feb period.

I wonder if this is the reason they all colluded to force us into wearing masks and to stay at home - so we wouldn't realize (see with our own eyes) that Covid has lost most of the worst of its virulence. They wanted President Trump to lose in the November 2020 election - he didn't.

I wonder what they are after now. What's her name from Biden's illegitimate administration said all school kids should be forced to wear masks this fall. And aren't some States going back to forcing masks and social distancing?

And I read here yesterday (didn't keep the link) that the dreaded "Delta" variant is similar to having a mild flu, no loss of taste or smell, just a runny nose, a scratchy throat, and a mild fever.

sixfingerdildo 5 points ago +5 / -0

if the mrna injection causes your own cells to produce the spike and if your own immune system is fighting both the spikes and spike generators, then it's your own immune system "killing" you.

so not a "weaker" immune system, a reprogrammed suicide system...

China and Italy seemed significantly worse than the rest of the world

China was most likely hyperbolized as propaganda and Italy was a cluster of very old people that freaked out the western world because it hadn't really reached here in any notable levels before then. So it's kind of like if it were released in a nursing home, it will cause chaos in that situation but in 99% of other situations it looks more like a normal illness going around. We knew by around mid April that it wasn't actually the disease of mass death it was being portrayed as.

Remember the videos of people in China just simply going about their business and then collapsing on the street? Obviously we came to learn the virus doesn't work like that - not even remotely close.

I've only seen the B and P lineages. It looks like B is the official lineage and P is used as database tool. It's sort of a stop-gap between discovery and official designation. I would assume that C and R are similar.

Exactly this. There's a big difference between 99% and 99.98%. 1 in 100 vs 1 in 5000. I'd venture to say that for a young healthy person it's more on the order of 99.997% or 3 per 100,000. (Probably less)

Indeed. I haven't read these three articles, and so I just finished them. Thank you. They added to what I knew about Suramin and Pine Needle Tea. I hope Suramin may work to ameliorate ill effects of the vaxx as well as the shedding.

Oddly, Dr. Mikovits in one lecture stated Pine Needle Tea was the source of the Suramin and then later said she had not associated them. This article again brings them together.

I'd given the Tea information to a poster who had been "spiked" and wasn't feeling well at all. He wrote back in a couple of days to say he felt extremely good, and was much more energetic. This was pleasing to hear. He intends to continue with the Tea.

based_trekkie 2 points ago +3 / -1

Use the grey man strategy...

Say you are finally convinced and you are getting vaxxed...

Make a timeline for yourself, post on social media your arm with a bandaid on it saying you got the vaxxed.

A few weeks later get the second shot, pretend to get sick, take some time of work, ( fuck them ) .... Post to social media: "iT wAS wORTH iT!" slowly get better....

BONUS: If your doctor tells ANYONE that you didn't actually get the shot sue his fucking ass into the ground for a HIPPA violation!

Tax-bracket creep has been a problem from inflation for decades. But it has been shown that no matter how much money the government takes in, it spends even more. Always. Even though it costs us more every day, we are not paying anything toward "reducing" the debt.

We pay more, and more, and more taxes. We pay more, and more, for inflated goods prices. And yet the debt grows, and grows, and grows.

There is nothing to stop the runaway train at this point. The inevitable deafening crash is just a matter of time.

DonJr2024 4 points ago +4 / -0

TRUE inflation has been through the roof for decades. Housing, health care and education have far outpaced income. This is because everyone can borrow for all these things so easily that it drives the price up. And everyone can borrow so easily because they artificially hold down interest rates and they make it easier and easier for banks to lend more and more money.

You can avoid debt... and take an extra 5 years to save up for that house. Your neighbour bought it 5 years ago for 150k less.

It began with technic, rose in the cool fire of cinema and television, blossomed with ‘zero-tolerance’ school policies, cable TV, internet, & video games, and took on a life of its own in the age of big data, social media, ubiquitous devices, and mass surveillance.

Thoughtless and lazy ‘Zero-tolerance’ compliance methodology implemented 20 years ago supposedly to help prevent bullying has grown alongside the kindergarteners it was first designed for — its intellectually irresponsible bureaucratic mindlessness has spread across all of society, infecting institutions everywhere with brain-dead paternalism, ironically turning adults into zombie-like idiots with childish response patterns and transforming organizations large and small into illogical & petty policy tyrants and merciless bullies.

The modern psychopaths who profit most from this transformation by jockeying for position to benefit from proximity to the energy of the process, also accelerate it, using decades of accumulated research, machine learning, ‘big data’, and pervasive surveillance to individualize propaganda to maximally target each recipient’s own psychological profile and personal interests, individually arrange timing and placement for maximum behavioral impact, while censoring and squelching opposition viewpoints, often without the victims even realizing it — all at mass scale.

Those who are in a position to put a stop to it are eliminated by control mechanisms like licensing, professionalism standards, and classification access, repurposed to weed out men with honor and integrity, and replace them with those who will betray their sworn oaths or abrogate their responsibilities out of cowardice, fear, conformism, and careerism, and allow unsupported theory to supplant science, rhetoric to replace reason, emotion to override objectivity, and administrative guidelines to determine actions instead of evidence.

Mankind’s institutions and organizations are thus taken over through instruments of financialization, monopolization, perverse incentives, state security agents, cycles of big government spending, special interests funding, and regulatory capture — and citizen complacency.

An important factor in creating the demoralization of self-worth and perceived competency is the undermining transhumanist effects of technology-regulated biofeedback loops, ‘dependency-injection’, ‘nudging’, privacy destruction, and cognitive degradation resulting from human beings essentially ‘implanting’ a networking device onto their person at all times (‘smart’ phones).

This ‘cyborg-like’ attachment has the effect of outsourcing a part of the victim’s identity and thought processes (and thus autonomy) into a connected node of a greater invisible swarming multiagent system, while the victim simultaneously underestimates the power that the external system will influence directly back upon the individual.

Surveillance capitalism, natsec exploitation, and political corruption have fueled the tech/surveillance ‘monster’, provided it with compartmentalized insulation, and delivered lifecycle processes to enable growth, evolution, and attachment to our ‘body politic’

Now it has subsumed our markets, our culture, and our governments, transforming our institutions and even human beings themselves into little more than network processing nodes, data input sources, and slaved physical domain control instruments, and turned society into its own power infrastructure and digestion system with security and defenses mechanisms to maintain its access to energy currency for processing and growth.

Instead of a ‘superhuman-like’ artificial intelligence, we have been overtaken by a parasitic, swarm hive-mind ‘intelligence’ to which humans and their institutions unwittingly serve as physical instruments; a multiagent system that we are dependent upon, cannot extricate ourselves from, and cannot shut down.

“Please wear a mask everywhere you go until you feel it’s safe to get vaccinated”

So liberals DO think the mask protects them from the virus? I’ve always said that, the whole “it’s to protect others” narrative was a lie, they deeply believe it’s for their own protection.

They only pushed that lie because it tickles their authoritarian bone.

peterstrzoked 15 points ago +15 / -0

They only pushed that lie because it’s scientifically absurd to think a dirty piece of cloth strapped to your face 24/7 is going to do anything but harm, but since they are irrational and stupid and it makes them feel safer, they needed a justification to force everyone else to wear it too so they didn’t feel so stupid.

Megascandal 8 points ago +8 / -0

The sad thing is that Against Bacteria and Fungi and blood/mucus carried diseases they can be useful. That makes it believable to the idiots. But against airborne viruses there has never been in the 100 years of mask use (and plenty of mad scientist evil experiments without ethics to try) a study to prove that they work against the Flu.

Of course none of the masker idiots ever realized that even in surgery and hospitals, any Doctor worth their weight changed their mask out at least every 30 minutes. The idiot maskers wear their own masks for 8+ hours straight or even for multiple fucking days which only serves to get themselves sick from bacteria, fungi, viruses, and oxygen deprivation.

8
peterstrzoked 8 points ago +8 / -0

Out of generosity, I would even go so far as to say that the mask is probably helpful in mitigating the spread of saliva/mucus carrying the virus from coughs or sneezes from sick people.

But that one bit of information does not justify forcing healthy people to wear a mask.

If they had said from the beginning: “hey, if you feel sick, stay home, and if you absolutely have to go out, wear a mask to keep your coughs and sneezes to yourself out of courtesy towards others”

I don’t know if that is scientifically sound or not - but that sounds a million times more plausible/reasonable than the ridiculous shit we’ve had rammed down our throats for the last year and a half.

Maybe the reason for that is that they never wanted to get buy in. Maybe this was all about seeing if they could force people to do illogical shit that makes no sense.

Correct

We knew before covid that masks don’t work against airborne viruses

The “we believe in science” people aren’t fond of actual science

I call them "20 minute procedure" masks to reinforce this.

Doctors do not change their masks every 30 minutes, that’s ridiculous lol the masks are to stop flecks of spittle containing bacteria from contaminating open surgical sites, which they are effective at doing regardless how long you wear the mask. They do not block viruses.

I note the masks aren't FDA approved either.

My mom calls all the time to try to convince me to get jabbed. I can hear CNN in the background as she lights her 30th cigarette of the day. As if I should take health advise from her FFS...

Ask her how she would feel if you were disabled for life after taking the stab

She's your mother -- parents worry for their children, and they tend to get emotional about it. I don't agree with her worry, but I understand the impetus. You may not agree either, but she does love you.

SteveBannonsNckbeard 2 points ago +5 / -3

Agree - it's not her fault, the media and power institutions in this country are powerful. Not everyone that buys is necessary as evil as they, they just got duped. She's just a worried mom

A couple of days ago, a Pede posted an animated short (6 mins or so) on the truth about the vaccines.

Really well done, but I didn't bookmark it or play it in Youtube, and my browser doesn't give me a way to go back to find it. (I looked) It's an awesome, very digestible red pill for people like your mom - Anybody remember/have a link to that one?

My mother sent me the same text about getting vaccinated. I just pretended she didn't say anything. I know there is no point in explaining myself, because the explanation inside her head is just going to be "he's brainwashed by right wing propaganda", because that's the narrative given by the media. And it's happily absorbed by all, because that also means they are right and I am wrong, giving them a feeling of superiority.

You don't have to do anything to your Mom except love her and respect her because she is your Mother and already vaxxed. Other than that nothing except walk your own line and be a good man and son.

The delta variant is less deadly than the original, as is always the case with mutations.

I have a family member who got covid, recovered, and STILL got the fucking the shot... ( with side effects )

Who is pissing their fucking pants over the delta variant...

Sadly I have to deal with them on a daily basis....

I am going to "get the shot" on social media....

going to go through all the motions but not get any injection...

JUST TO SHUT THEM THE FUCK UP!

Pure Propaganda.

If you argue with them they all respond with the same exact talking points seen on the headlines. “Delta variant. New strain. Breakthrough infections”

It’s almost like these vaccines do fuck all.

Very early on my little sister caught the rona. I was worried my mom would freak out. Turns out after my sister got it my mom went online and did a ton of research and told me it was nothing to worry about it's just a cold.

I should of known that would be her conclusion. She works security at Sturges, of course she is based.

women are generally more agreeable. jordan peterson has a lot of videos on it. basically they are hard wired to go along with the crowd. The only exception is if something is a threat to their children then they will go ham.

My mom emailed me an article last night about how bad the Delta variant is and why it’s worrying doctors. I simply replied with “I’m still not worried about it.” She knows I’m not vaxxed and that I’m not going to be.

If someone asks if you're vaccinated, even your mom, it's not like you're under oath. Feel free to make them feel better by telling them you are if you don't feel the need to get into a debate.

Ireland made the news as having the largest outbreak of "positive covid cases". The latest statistics? Zero mortality for 24 and under and just 1 in 6000 over 60. You are FAR more likely to have serious complications or even death from the vaccine than the virus itself.

Moms can be really irrational when it comes to their kids. It’s probably one of those things where you have to say “everything is ok, mom” and then do what you think is best. The less you go down the rabbit hole with her, the better.

  • Delta may or may not be more infectious (personally I doubt it but it's impossible to get actual numbers) but the only way it's more deadly is if China is still trying to breed a lethal variant

  • masks do fuck all, and everyone knows it

  • You survived 2020, you'll survive 2021 unless the feds find out about your LEGO collection

Did you decide if you're going to get the covid vaccine?

Response should be: Yes I did!

That is, you decided you were not going to get it. She's just asking if you decided, not if you did. And the response would have sounded like you actually got it. :-)
