NARRATIVE CHANGE IMMINENT... BUT POLITICIANS TOO DUMB TO SEE IT
Why the jab-pushers could learn a lot from Jacinda Ardern's savvy poll watching
By Adam Edwards
LOVE her or loathe her, Margaret Thatcher got one thing right: she never worried about being liked.
It was what made her so divisive and her premiership so different to those of Boris Johnson and New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern.
Ardern in particular is often lambasted for her failed zero Covid fanaticism, but people forget it wasn’t actually ‘her’ policy. Like Johnson, she resisted border closures and lockdowns long after America and much of Europe had embraced these untried policies. Faced with growing public hysteria, she finally caved, announcing a belated and partial border closure on March 19, 2020.
Ultimately, both she and Johnson got bounced into restrictions by the public they so cravenly courted and ended up destroying their countries’ economies as a result.
Faced with election defeat later this year, the increasingly unpopular Ardern stepped down as New Zealand’s prime minister last week. Like Johnson, though, she is likely to move on to a more profitable and perhaps more influential role outside of politics.
This ability to spot and react to an emerging trend is what, for better or worse, made Ardern and Johnson so unique.
Sadly, most politicians are too intransigent to ever change course, as their continued obsession with the Covid “vaccines” proves.
The safety and efficacy of these once-sacrosant interventions came under unprecedented global scrutiny throughout January. Perhaps fatally so.
It started in the US, where the on-field cardiac arrest of NFL player Damar Hamlin and the announcement of an official investigation into post-vax strokes, resulted in this formerly taboo topic being discussed in living rooms and newsrooms across the country – and beyond.
In Britain, the campaign by a “vax”-damaged MP, Andrew Bridgen, to investigate the safety of the jabs culminated with the BBC “accidentally” covering the issue in a now viral interview with the cardiologist Aseem Malhotra.
Right across the world, questions are now being raised about the now-rampant excess death rates in highly “vaccinated” countries.
Yet rather than quietly move on from their great “vaccine” push, many politicians are doubling down on Big Pharma’s now-evident lies, failing to grasp the tidal wave of anger heading their way from “vaccine”-injured people like Bridgen and “vax”-bereaved citizens like Malhotra; the one-time “vax”-pushing cardiologist believes his father may have been killed by the jab.
He’s not alone. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 28 per cent of Americans believe they know someone personally whose death may have been caused by the “vaccine”. Even more significantly, the percentage of people claiming to know a suspected “vax” victim was higher among highly “vaxxed” (and previously pro-mandate) Democrat voters, than among Republicans and independents. A staggering one in three Democrats claim to know someone who may have been killed by the jab.
Of course polls are not fallible, but the trickle of negative press and studies – which would previously have been censored – should make an astute politician reassess their rabid commitment to the “vaccine” narrative.
Florida’s governor, Ron DeSantis, certainly has, launching a grand jury to investigate the issue of “vaccine” damage and possible criminal fraud by the pharmaceutical companies.
His main rival for the Republican presidential ticket, Donald Trump, on the other hand, has doubled down on the crumbling “safe and effective” narrative, claiming that the “vaccine” (which he takes credit for) has saved 100 million lives.
Unfortunately for Trump, such made-up stats won’t fly any more. The public knows the “vaccine” isn’t quite as effective as originally sold.
Worse, by continuing to take credit for the rushed “vaccine”, the thin-skinned ex-president may be inadvertently setting himself up as the fall guy should the dam finally burst.
Trying to reach you, is this your Twitter handle?
It now seems that dumb and dumber has taken over; each mad claim adding to the denial mountain.
