Lies, Lies and More Lies from Our Supposed Leaders

By May 8, 2020 Commentary

There is an email circulating about the Worthington meatpacking plant on Twitter, so take it for what its worth. (Update, email came from CEO of one of the large hog-raising operations in the area.)   But out of 2700 employees, apparently 1200 were positive, 90% asymptomatic, 12 hospitalized, almost all released, no deaths.  Yeah, this is way worse than the flu.  The Governor just keeps trying to scare everyone about how dangerous this virus is.   It has gotten to the point where all you can say is that he is lying now, anyone can look at the data like I do and see that other than the frail elderly it isn’t any more dangerous than hundreds of other things.  I am pretty fed up with this.

Meanwhile, out of 26 new deaths reported in the state today, 25 were to LTC residents.  The “battle plan” is working really well so far.

And meanwhile the lockdowns are killing children and others far more than coronavirus is, in large part because the Governor and other leaders have recklessly scared people and misled them about the risk, so that they aren’t seeking needed health care.  The Centers for Disease Control says that children are missing vaccines in large numbers.  (CDC Report)

A bad way to end the day.

    The reduced vaccination rates are scary and not something I had read about yet. It seems the collateral damage from our irrational response just goes on and on. I thank you for bringing these awful side effects to light. Hopefully at some point the cumulative damage will become unbearable to our leaders. One can hope anyways. Thanks for continuing to put your time into this.

  • […] A few of the meatpacking plants in rural Minnesota have experienced outbreaks of the virus. The biggest may be a pork processing plant in Worthington with 2700 employees. Kevin Roche — he of Healthy Skeptic — wrote me last night to note that an email from a plant employee circulating on Twitter reports all employees have been tested. Results: 1200 tested positive, 90 percent were asymptomatic, 12 were hospitalized, no deaths. Although the situation in Worthington has been a frequent subject of discussion at the daily briefings, for some reason the authorities have not seen fit to announce the good news. Kevin referred me to Alex Berenson’s tweet below and reported on it himself here. […]
