I can't wrap my head around the fact that some people seriously think vaccine would give them full protection against COVID but then will continue to wear masks because they need masks to protect others from catching COVID from them. They do not find any sort of logical discrepancy in their reasoning, apparently!

You may be jesting, but my god have people been dropping like flies in my circle of acquaintances and people that they know.

I've only lost a couple that I knew well enough to call them actual friends or even family, but the whole "friends of friends" circle and people I just have ran into enough to know who they are?

Yea, there are flies dropping in that circle. And it's exclusively vaccinated people. It's also almost exclusively from blood clots.

And the weirdest part is, nobody talks about it. Nobody will bring up that it was from the vaccine. It's just "random" blood clots.

One friend broke his leg, died a week later from a blood clot. Was blamed on the broken leg, but had received his 2nd dose like a week before breaking his leg.

Another person I know was about 3-4 weeks or so in, and died in his sleep with a blood clot to the lung/brain.

Another one my age who I went to high school with dropped dead from a "heart attack" but was NOT in any sort of bad shape. He was average at worst. Had received both doses.

On top of that, people I work with are almost all vaccinated. I've seen several of them already, and heard them talk about their family members, getting covid and being severely effected by it. My secretary was recently out with a bad case of it, after she received both shots and was actually seeking out a booster. She was hospitalized. Her husband was as well.

On the other hand... Healthy people I know who have refused the vaccine, are seemingly impervious to either of those outcomes. They're not getting sick, and if they HAVE, it's over in a couple of days like a normal flu.

You have to be blind to not see what's happening around here.

Raposa 9 points ago +9 / -0

The crazy thing is when you tell people things like this, they just call it anecdotal. But how can it be so completely removed from the official story? It would be like if the news said everywhere that you have a 10% chance to get tails when flipping a coin, but all the people in your life flip coins and it’s 50/50 heads or tails. We evolved to notice patterns in front of us. It just doesn’t add up. The broken leg thing, sure, sometimes blood clots happen with injuries. But the impulse people have to instantly brush any side effects off as not possibly being from the newly developed vaccines with known blood clot risks is so off putting and unnatural.

Thanks for the additional details. I care because I find this entire debacle fascinating. Watching people deal with the consequences of their actions and how they grapple with the cognitive dissonance is something to behold. Too bad this is affecting people and their very lives. I too have people in my immediate circle that is dealing with the after affects of the vaxx. Like your friend who is Catholic, I have a relative who seems to grasp their actions when they said that they know they are a guinea pig. How they can then subject themselves to this is beyond me. I sincerely hope that all the experts that I have seen are dead wrong. I, for one, have silently prepared myself for the eventual loss of all of them. I hope your parents and your friend feel better.

Nope. Most people don't have the ability to critically think. It is our job to protect them. Many doctors and epidemiologists are guilty.

CAPTAIN_TENDY_PLATE2 11 points ago +11 / -0

I disagree with your assertion that it's our job to protect these people. In the natural world they would have been 'left to the wolves" so to speak, and they wouldn't have made it.

We are in a position in society right now, because we HAVE BEEN protecting the weak and coddling the stupid.

Now, I'm not a heartless bastard, I don't think we should just kick everyone out into the streets who has a disability or whatever.

But I don't think we need to "protect them" from their own stupidity.

Our job is to INFORM THEM. And if they're too ignorant, stupid, egotistical, scared or whatever else to dismiss it? Well, sorry, you were warned. Go about your business and fuck yourself over. It's not my problem.

y_do_i_need_to_hide 3 points ago +3 / -0

I think we agree pretty completely. It is our job to protect them by informing them. I did this but later than I should have. Our job is to not comply, so that they don't get the impression that is the Smart Action.

If someone has been complying, and complaining on a message board made up mostly of us, they've missed the boat entirely. I developed this standard because I realized some people I like are going to die from their own ignorance. This way I can assuage my guilt by the knowledge I did something.

Tldr, speak out loudly and often and never comply. This is the way to protect those who don't critically think well.

I don't know... but it's sad. My brother and sister-in-law, in their 80s, just innocently do whatever their doctor tells them, trying to cling to life, I guess, and never letting themselves think that their own government wants to kill them. Old people grew up in the WWs and have a lifetime devoted to believing what they're told. It's sad. I'm losing people left and right, this year, after getting vaxxed.

anotherthing 62 points ago +62 / -0

I talked to an old guy at a filling station a few months ago. I told him I didn't see the point in getting the shot because I have a 99.5% chance of being okay if I get it. He said that it's to protect others. I said that those people also have a 99.5% chance of surviving. He just shrugged.

ThisBlowsChunks 46 points ago +46 / -0

It's the damnedest thing. They don't seem to get it that if vaccines work, it shouldn't matter if others get them or not; that if masks work, they would work whether others wore them or not. It can't get much simpler than that.

And the whole purpose of lockdowns, mandating church closures, family gatherings and other social events are about preventing people from spreading information, facts and logic to others.

But a lot of people are absolutely repelled by the idea of peeking behind the curtain & they simply lack the driving instinct to do it.

Anyone that claims they're neutral or centrist is a liberal. A true centrist gets both sides of an issue, which is really hard to accomplish with how corrupt the media is. These people only get the liberal media's view of an issue, so it is impossible for them to be truly neutral. Only those of us here can claim to be neutral because we actually see both sides.

I have a friend who is a pharmacist and I was telling her about another friend who lost her job because she had natural immunity and refused the jab mandate. I explained how ridiculous it is to require the jab for people who have already had Covid, and that we don't do that with other diseases. She immediately brought up the annual flu shot, so I had to remind her that the flu shots are for a different strain every year, and if you had already caught the flu that year you wouldn't go get a fucking flu shot, which is what they are doing with the Covid jabs. Imagine having to explain this to a pharmacist. They are so in thrall of the propaganda that they abandon all logic and reason.

It's a guaranteed rage-inducer: ask a covid worshipper why they are afraid of catching covid from the unvaccinated, if the vaccine they took works. They will NEVER say "I see your point" or "Yeah, it's not really logical" or "it's true, it makes no sense." They just rage and say some variation of "This conversation is over". Which, in fact, it is, because they are BTFO and they know it.

I have two brothers that are fully vaxxed. One of them got vaxxed (I hate calling that poison a vax) and destroyed his natural immunity... Anyways, my mom recently needed to go to the emergency room, two weeks after a positive PCR covid test result so I took her in. 12 hours later I texted to see if one of my brothers could fill in for me and these brothers are like "is that wise to be there? I've got my family to think about." I thought you're fully protected! They're afraid evidently because they know it doesn't work. At least they must now believe the studies all over the world (except for taxpayer-funded govt propaganda broadcasts on all channels and radio stations) that show they've increased their chances of catching and super-spreading the coof with a higher death rate among the vaxxed.

Sounds like the entire family needs vaccinated against dad's fake news habit.

There has, perhaps, never been brainwashing as pervasive as that being inflicted by "the elite" today.

Speaking of the elite, it sickens me to see Bezos giving celebrities a personal send-off for space flight, because I know this is the plan for the entire world: a playground for a select group of elitist pig bastards who have given themselves everything at the working person's expense. They know they don't need 'the peasants' anymore, because of automation (I say that as a thoroughly informed MBA, MIT), so they've programmed the cow-eyed public to murder itself.

Blawblahbleh 2 points ago +3 / -1

I know I'm in a hornets nest here, but I'll try and provide a viewpoint from another angle.

First off, I am vaccinated and I wear a mask. I am also somewhat pro-choice in that if you really don't want to get the jab, then don't.

From my understanding, here is the logistics on vaccinces. I'm not going to get into the side effects and all that as I know it's a fight I'm not going to win here.

The vaccine was never meant to 100 percent prevent Covid. It's very similar to a flu shot in that it provides your body with a blueprint of the virus so it can fight it off "easier". The idea is that it may prevent Covid, just like a flu shot may prevent the flu, but there is still probable chance that you will contract Covid. Since Covid is more severe version of the flu, your body has a better chance of keeping it contained to either mild flu like symptoms or no symptoms at all. You can still transmit the virus (the transmission window may be smaller, but it can still exist). Even if you never contract Covid, you can still carry it and pass it on, hence the continued required for distancing and face coverings. We can debate all day on the efficacy of masks, so I won't go there.

The whole point of the vaccine is prevent SERIOUS illnesses that require hospitilizations that can stress the health care system as we have seen elective and even non-elective surgeries cancelled because of lack of bed space and resources such as nurses and respiratory techs.

Take this explanation for what you will, but I see a lot people think the idea is to completely prevent Covid and thus deem it a failure. It's not.

Flame suit engage.

That's literally not how a vaccine works.

There’s no evidence that COVID is any more serious than the flu. Vast majority of COVID cases are either asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic. Hell, it can’t even barely kill children much unlike flu.

And no, COVAX does not give you a blueprint of the virus. It makes your cell to create a small fraction of virus (spike protein) which allows the virus itself to get inside your cell. And so far no sufficient studies have been conducted to properly conclude that such method is as effective as traditional vaccine mechanism which the flu shot falls into.

And apparently it isn’t very effective, as we can see almost every single country and region with high vaccination rate has failed to lower hospitalization and death rate by using the vaccine.

I admit, my point was not to explain how vaccines work. My point was only that no one is saying that the vaccine will prevent COVID. Its purpose is to lessen the chance of a serious illness that requires hospitalization.

Yes, vaccinated people will still get the virus, and some will die. These infected people could still transmit the virus. The goal is make the R number smaller than it would be without the vaccine. Hence the government maintaining mask mandates. I know there is debate on the efficacy of masks, but that's where the logic sits.

"No one is saying that the vaccine will prevent COVID"

That's a lie.




And since we know Pfizer and other pharma companies botched their own studies, (giving vaccines to control group which was only supposed to get placebo is a good example) vaccinated people accounting for high percentage of "severe COVID cases" and deaths in numerous countries, and "scientists" changing their positions now claiming that two doses aren't very effective and people would need boosters to keep being protected, we can now put "muh COVAX prevents severe disease" claim to rest.

I agree with you except my main motivation is to not get really sick or die from COVID, not to spare the healthcare system from stress. That’s a nice side effect but the system wasn’t overwhelmed through two waves of COVID so I am not too worried about that.

Blawblahbleh 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yeah, I know that making sure the health care system runs properly is not in the hands of citizens. This is a task of the government and in the states, private corporations. Hence why they are bringing in mandates to try and control the serious hospitalizations. These do put strain on health care systems.



I know it's a small sample size picked from the MSM, but to say that systems are not overwhelmed might not be accurate.

Saltybitch 2 points ago +2 / -0

When you know the need to virtue signal is real. I'm betting he's still afraid of getting Covid but also doesn't want to be mistaken as an "anti-vaxxer". Mostly afraid though. The mindfuck is real.

you cannot reason with the unreasonable

i feel for ya fren, gotta be hard to have family so ill-logically motivated. my advice is that you have to walk away, not literally, just that you need to not partake in their insanity, lest you become insane as well

One_Eyed_Willy 2 points ago +2 / -0

He's flat face lying to you. The truth is your dad is vaccinated b/c he was scared of getting covid. He now knows being vaccinated doesn't prevent him from getting covid, so he's wearing a mask precisely because of that. He is lying to you.

iDrankTheCovfefe 2 points ago +2 / -0

Is this normal behavior from your father? I have seen some very abnormal behavior from people I know who have had the jab. I think there is high tech behavioral modification in those vials. It sounds crazy but I keep seeing strange behaviors from people I have never seen it from before after they had the jabs.

I have run into this same (il)logical arguments. The brainwashing has been really good.

Basically it vaguely makes sense but your dad is obviously using bad language to describe it.

No vaccine (nor any immune system) is absolute 100% protection against "getting" a virus. A virus can always enter the body and infiltrate some cells. The issue is whether or not the virus PROLIFERATES.

If you have memory (which can be acquired naturally and via some vaccines) then the body will respond and attack the virus and cells it has infected to reproduce. If you don't have memory, it can still do that, but there's a delay.

So a mask to catch infected droplets in theory can protect others from encountering the virus if you yourself had encountered it and were contagious prior to your body wiping it out.

Some questions to ask here are:

  1. just what is the likelihood of infected droplets (and if so, what viral load?) if you have a robust immune memory (natural or via vaccine) to the virus? Does it really have enough time to replicate in your lungs (assuming you're inhaling/exhaling viral droplets) prior to getting nuked via your immune system?

  2. is your dad only trying to protect the unvaxed/unexposed, or does he also think that those with vaccine-induced semi-immunity (or non-vaxed natural full-immunity) are going to get fucked up too?

BTW science guys who know shit, I need your help.

The Magic School Bus did an episode about bacterial infections and how the immune system fights them off: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk6KOFKJVkk&t=15m19

How does fighting off viral infections differ here? It shows white blood cells launching Y-shaped "stick things" (antibodies) to mark bacteria and eat them, and then the "medicine" (prob antibiotics) slows down bacterial growth so white blood cells can handle workload.

Obviously antibiotics don't help w/ virus though, and I don't know how white blood cells or antibodies might work in respect to viral instead of bacterial infections.

COVID = Stupidity

Your father is just trying to protect others from his stupidity. Too bad there isn't a vaxx for that.

Stanwyk74 2 points ago +2 / -0

The old martyr excuse. I do this to save mankind, not for me. They are protecting the people who don't want the vaccine? Anyone who wants a vaccine can get it...anyone who doesn't get it by now has accepted the almost zero risk of dying from it.

Ultraviolet light penetrates and I destroys the lipid coating of the virus particle. We learned this like two weeks into the pandemic. Wearing a mask outside is just absolutely, completely retarded.

StadiumHopper 1 point ago +1 / -0

The VAX is causing people to reproduce the disease and shed it. Think about that.

PKC_MAN 1 point ago +1 / -0

Protecting others from Spike proteins I believe, which is still more effective on the vaccinated.
