COVID Lockdowns, Mask Mandates, and the Rejection of Cures: Are They Crimes Against Humanity?

One year ago, in March of 2020, I was thrilled to read (in this Breitbart article) that Israel was donating ten million doses of hydroxychloroquine to combat COVID-19. It was excellent news, in my opinion, for one enormous reason.

The “HCQ+” protocols (hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and azithromycin) outlined in the article had already started to save lives (at almost 100%) if the medicines were given when the patients first displayed symptoms. My common sense reaction to that news was:

Wonderful! Give everyone HCQ+ if they get sick, and most will be cured very quickly. Millions of lives will be saved. No lockdowns or masks are necessary. Society can continue as usual.

But it was not to be.

As we all know, HCQ+ was rejected as a cure, with dire warnings of the “dangers” of hydroxychloroquine, even though doctors continue to this day to routinely prescribe it for non-COVID treatments; even though it’s been safely taken, over the counter, all over Africa for decades to ward off malaria; even though some courageous doctors continue to prescribe it and continue to save hundreds and thousands of lives.

Many doctors have testified about actual results with HCQ+ and their subsequent frustration with the global blocking of HCQ+ as a cure, including the Yale Professor of Epidemiology, Dr. Harvey Risch, when he wrote in the July 23, 2020, Newsweek article “The Key to Defeating COVID-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It”:

On May 27, I published an article in the American Journal of Epidemiology (AJE) entitled, “Early Outpatient Treatment of Symptomatic, High-Risk COVID-19 Patients that Should be Ramped-Up Immediately as Key to the Pandemic Crisis.” That article, published in the world’s leading epidemiology journal, analyzed five studies, demonstrating clear-cut and significant benefits to treated patients, plus other very large studies that showed the medication safety.

HCQ+ also works as preventative medicine. Dennis Prager relates his family’s experience with HCQ+ in a February 9, 2021 article for The Epoch Times, writing:

For the record, I put my medicines where my mouth is. I have been taking hydroxychloroquine and zinc (as well as vitamin D and selenium) on a regular basis for half a year, and ivermectin for the past three months. More for the record: During this time, I have hugged hundreds of strangers at various events around the country, maskless. In addition, at home, I live with four people: my wife, two stepsons, and the fiancée of one of the sons. That couple, both in their mid-20s, developed symptoms and then tested positive for COVID-19 a month ago. They were the only two members of the family not to be on hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin. And while they were ill, my wife and I practiced no social distancing, wore no masks in the house and tested negative twice (as responsible citizens, we quarantined at home for 14 days).

The son and his fiancée immediately began a course of treatment of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, ivermectin, vitamin D, and selenium, and within half a day, they were feeling better. A few days later, all their symptoms had vanished.

The “powers that be” have ignored HCQ+ and, in the process, must answer this question, the title of Prager’s op-ed above:

How Many Americans Has the American Medical Establishment Killed?

Instead of curing people of COVID as soon as they got it, medical bureaucrats, government officials, liberal governors and mayors, and the mainstream media chose a different route.

Since they said no cure was available (ignoring HCQ+) and since computer models that were later discovered to be false predicted millions of deaths, the only recourse, in their “scientific opinion,” was to:

1. Quarantine the healthy and lock down society. To hell with the consequences. Fear and hysteria will rule the day.

(This is the first time in human history that healthy people across the entire globe have been quarantined and locked down.)

2. Wear masks, even though studies have clearly shown that the pores of masks are much too large to stop microscopic Coronavirus particles.

3. Create an alliance between governments, the medical establishment, the media, and Big Tech to censor any disagreement with COVID policies. If someone disagrees with “official policies,” remove their articles and videos, and ban them altogether if they continue to misbehave.

In addition, create an environment of intolerance among citizens toward anyone who disagrees. Push the intolerance to a fever pitch so that friends and family members, co-workers, and random people one meets in a store become outraged at people who don’t wear a mask or voice a different opinion.

Work very hard to shut down dissent. Label all dissent as “conspiracy theories.”

But is that societal disapproval and intolerance based “on science,” as the scornful party-liners allege? What about “the cult of masks”?

Daniel Horowitz, writing for The Blaze on March 2, 2021, here, stated that:

One study that examined a sample of over 11,000 particles found that over 90% of SARS-CoV-2 particles were smaller than 0.3 microns, which clearly means this virus is primarily an airborne transmission virus. Most people who are together indoors for long periods of time, who are responsible for most of the transmission, wear cloth masks. Studies have shown most cloth masks have pores between 80 to 500 micrometers and that they expand with each washing. It is simply ludicrous to suggest that they can have any degree of efficacy, any more than using a screen door on a submarine.

Horowitz’s article addresses the issue of forcing children to wear masks, asking:

How can we permanently mask our children, beginning with toddlers, based on such anti-scientific insanity?

We’ve all seen the harm that lockdowns and mandated masks have done to both children and adults, to our family and friends, to the education of our children, to businesses of every size, to incomes and livelihoods, to goals and projects and personal dreams.

How much damage has been done worldwide? It is literally incalculable.

Now, in 2021, when many people thought, “Hey, this can’t go on forever,” it now seems to be going on forever—at least in states run by liberal governors who use the excuse that they have to declare a state of emergency in order to qualify for federal money. The immorality of that is dark indeed.

Texas and Mississippi have ended the lockdowns and mask mandates completely. Other states are equally brave, but far too many liberal states are keeping their citizens and economies in a virtual prison.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has turned into a one-man flip-flopping doom machine, with recommendations to wear multiple masks and to wear masks into 2022—and the CDC has played along, joined by the media and liberal elites.

And now we have the issue of vaccines. I’m not an “antivaxxer.” I’ve had quite a number of vaccines in my life. But the new COVID vaccines have two very large problems:

1. They haven’t been tested for an adequate amount of time and have potential side effects that are very serious, as detailed at America’s Frontline Doctors.

(America’s Frontline Doctors recommend the telehealth service called SpeakWithAnMD, through which anyone in the USA can legally obtain HCQ+, shipped directly to your door. Licensed doctors can prescribe both preventative and active COVID prescriptions.)

2. The totalitarian nature of the COVID lockdowns and mask mandates has moved into the process of vaccinations, affecting individuals who want to make up their own minds about whether or not to get vaccinated. There are government and business efforts to create vaccination “passports” that will only allow a person to travel, enter businesses, or keep a job if you’re vaccinated.

A Daily Wire March 3, 2021 headline reads, “New Yorkers Will Have To Show COVID-19 ‘Passport’ To Enter Stadiums, Theaters, Businesses.”

The drive to vaccinate the whole world (really) has entered the nasty realm of guilt and accusation, based on the premise that people won’t be able to be free of lockdowns and masks until everyone gets vaccinated. So, if you don’t want to get vaccinated, you’re forcing the “good” vaccinated citizens to suffer more. The CDC stated:

Until every person in the U.S. can get a COVID-19 vaccine, continue to wear a mask, keep at least 6 feet between yourself and others, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often.

This is masterful and diabolical manipulation: to turn citizens against each other and to create a class of citizens who look down on, attack, and report those who disagree. Parallels to this were seen in Soviet Russia, with Mao’s Red Guards, and in totalitarian societies throughout history. This is America and the world in 2021.

The controversies about how to deal with COVID have divided our societies across the world in a tragic fashion and have accentuated the already destructive divisions that have poisoned political dialogue over the last few years.

It is especially grievous that COVID party-liners are so convinced about their “rightness” that most will not read articles like this and certainly won’t believe them if they do, “because science.” But whose science are they believing?

As of this writing, 55,686 medical and public health scientists and medical practitioners have signed a statement against the lockdowns called “The Great Barrington Declaration.” Fifty-thousand medical professionals is a lot. But still, those suffering from the COVID “mass delusion” ignore all of this.

Now, in 2021, freedom-loving, rational people, from across the political spectrum, must review the facts.

According to NBC (ignoring alleged miscategorization of deaths as COVID, which is another story), 2.5 million people have died from COVID worldwide. If HCQ+ and other cures had been deployed, how many people would have been saved? Ninety percent?

If so, it means that by not deploying HCQ+ and other cures, Leftist elites and their enablers are responsible for 2,250,000 deaths in the last year that did not have to happen. Because of their lockdown mandates, they are responsible for the destruction of national economies and the well-being of billions of humans around the globe.

Therefore, we must all ask this critical-thinking question:

By rejecting HCQ+ and other COVID cures, and instead forcing lockdowns and mask mandates on entire populations across the globe, have those in power committed crimes against humanity?

I believe that they have. I believe that they should all be called to account.
