Paraguay Is So Backward

They’re not even planning to introduce compulsory COVID-19 vaccinations there. Not like in progressive Germany.

German families seek shelter in Paraguay from vaccines and lockdowns – German citizens who refuse to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or put up to harsh mobility restrictions have fled their country and sought shelter in a community within Paraguay, it was reported.

About 1,000 of those so-called “deniers” have settled in Hohenau, in the Itapúa department, since last year, according to a Deutsche Welle report. The town was founded by German immigrants and is viewed as a place where they can own a piece of land and be safe to raise their children.

“I decided to come because the coronavirus is narrowing everything, complicating everything. More and more people have to flee Germany, Austria and Switzerland because they lose their jobs. Soon they will not even be able to go out to do the shopping and they are already announcing the mandatory vaccine.”

Are We Pushing Too Hard Yet?

Nah. Now we’ll turn it up a notch higher and make vaccinations compulsory. What could possibly go wrong?

Man Killed Family, Then Self, Over Faked Vaccine Pass -German Prosecutor – A man who killed his wife and three young children before taking his own life had faked a vaccination certificate and feared his children would be taken away from him when the forgery was discovered, a German prosecutor said on Tuesday.

Police found two adults, both 40, and three children aged four, eight and 10 dead from gunshot wounds in a family home in Koenigs Wusterhausen south of Berlin on Saturday.

In a farewell note found by police, the man said he forged a vaccination certificate for his wife. Her employer had found out, prompting the couple to fear they would be arrested and lose their children, prosecutor Gernot Bantleon told Reuters.

He’s Perfect For The Job

He contradicts himself and changes his mind every few days too. Just like the top dog Covid expert nearest you.

Karl Lauterbach to Be Next German Health Minister – Sources.

Karl Lauterbach of Germany’s Social Democrats will serve as health minister and current justice minister Christine Lambrecht will become defence minister in the next German government, sources said on Monday.

Lauterbach, who is a trained doctor and epidemiologist, has pushed for stricter measures to stave off the fourth wave of infections currently sweeping Germany and will take over the post from the Christian Democrats’ Jens Spahn.

“Prompts Outcry”

Prompts an outcry from German politicians. When the rabble starts threatening those in power directly, they get nervous. And suddenly, they’re all on the same sheet of music. Sound vaguely familiar?

Germany: Torchlit rally against COVID measures prompts outcry – Lawmakers have condemned torch-bearing protesters who gathered outside the home of Saxony’s health minister. A far-right group protesting the latest COVID measures has claimed responsibility for the incident.

Nonessential Times Call For Nonessential Measures

Against nonessential people.

Germany locks unvaccinated out of public life; mandate looms – Unvaccinated people across Germany will soon be excluded from nonessential stores, restaurants and sports and cultural venues, Chancellor Angela Merkel announced Thursday, and parliament will consider a general vaccine mandate as part of efforts to curb coronavirus infections.

Merkel announced the measures after a meeting with federal and state leaders, as the nation again topped 70,000 newly confirmed cases in a 24-hour period. She said the steps were necessary to address concerns that hospitals could become overloaded with patients suffering from COVID-19 infections, which are much more likely to be serious in people who have not been vaccinated.

Not Even China Makes Shots Mandatory

But the Germans just can’t wait to make it happen.

Germany imposes curbs on unvaccinated, to make shots mandatory – Germany on Thursday imposed restrictions on the unvaccinated as it sought to break a dramatic surge in daily coronavirus infections exacerbated by the discovery of the Omicron strain.

Outgoing Chancellor Angela Merkel and her successor Olaf Scholz agreed with leaders of Germany’s 16 states to bar the unvaccinated from access to all but the most essential businesses such as grocery stores, pharmacies and bakeries.

German Of The Day: Fliegerbombe

That means aircraft bomb.

Four injured after old WWII aircraft bomb explodes in Munich – Four people were injured when an old aircraft bomb exploded at a bridge near Munich’s busy main train station on Wednesday, police said on Twitter, raising the number of wounded from three earlier.

Germans just yawn about this stuff. Happens too often. My personal favorite from a few years back:

This Is Particularly Shocking

Especially when you consider that there are only about thirty or forty black people living in Germany in the first place.

Black People in German Survey Report ‘Extensive’ Discrimination – Black people living in Germany face pervasive issues with racism and discrimination, according to a survey which marks the first wide-scale effort to tally the community’s experiences.

“The results of the Afrozensus indicate that anti-Black racism is widespread in Germany and anchored in institutions,” a press release of the report said on Tuesday. “There is no area of life in which discrimination and racism are not extensive problems.”

Germany In Full Omnicron Panic Mode

Or will be, very shortly. And is it any wonder?

Because, well, after all… People with the Omicron variant have ‘extremely mild‘ symptoms and haven’t had to be hospitalized yet, says the South African doctor who first reported it.

That can only mean that they died before ever making it to the hospital, right?

Several leading German politicians called on Sunday for tighter restrictions to contain a surge in coronavirus cases as the infection rate hit a new high and fears about the new Omicron variant rose.
