A friend reposted this on one of her social media pages. I won’t link to it or identify her, in order to preserve her anonymity: but I think her point is worth sharing. The link below, and highlights in orange, are my emphasis.
The covid bull**** did us all a favor. I know that sounds crazy, but hear me out for a minute. All the people demanding more lockdowns, that the unvaccinated be punished, that vaccine passports be required, that mask mandates remain in place forever, and all that **** are all speaking loudly and openly about it. Those are the people who are a threat to anyone who wants to remain free. They are the people who will report your activities to the government. They are the secret police. They’re the people who will expose the Jews hiding in your attic, metaphorically. Take careful note of who those people are. Smile. Be polite. Tell them nothing. Do not invite them to your home. Do not make friends with them. Watch your communications carefully when they’re around, and don’t talk to any of their friends or family they haven’t cut off. Those people may not be quite so far gone, but they are also an information security risk, because they will casually and unthinkingly tell their friend in the secret police anything you tell them. Because of this covid disaster, we no longer have to wonder who in our local area is a threat. They have self-identified, and we should act accordingly.
Indeed. As our forebears were reminded during World War II:
In this day and age, when independent, questioning thinkers are regarded with profound suspicion by a “deep state” that’s determined to force everybody into submission and compel compliance, keeping a low profile is more important than ever for those with a lot to lose. Let the iceberg be our guide. There’s a whole lot more of it below the surface, out of sight, than is visible above.
