Fake Vaccine Certificates?

Do they mean fake vaccine CERTIFICATES or FAKE VACCINE certificates?

Omicron Everywhere!

While the number of available intensive care beds continues to rise.

Almost makes you wonder if this latest variant isn’t all that dangerous (am I allowed to wonder that?). Hey, when in doubt (and your everyday, run-of-the-mill top health official apparently always is) just increase the panic level one more notch.

Germany: Omicron wave breaks new weekly cases record – The new wave of coronavirus infections in Germany has now surpassed numbers last seen in November. Experts are warning of the threat this poses to the unvaccinated.

That means mandatory vaccination. And those signs down there read “for free vaccination decisions” and “no to mandatory vaccination.”

Tens of thousands of people are protesting against the latest restrictive COVID measures in German cities all over the country. And it’s fun to watch the state media squirm. They’re clearly finding it more and more difficult labelling these people wackos.

Around 5,000 people rallied in Frankfurt, according to the police.

They had not choice. Firework sales have been prohibited in Germany.

Thanks a million, COVID.

German Of The Day: Strafanzeigen

That means criminal charges. You know, like the charges made against those demonstrating against the government’s anti-Covid measures in Munich last night?

Germany Erupts in Protests Over COVID Mandates, Police Officers Injured in Riots – The protests come as the German government implemented new restrictions this month to deal with the Omicron variant, which is believed to be more transmissible than other variants.

A maximum of 10 vaccinated people are allowed to attend a private gathering. If someone who is unvaccinated attends, only one other household can go to the gathering.

The Next Far-Right Conspiracy

Yawn. Been there, done that. They do the same thing with “Climate Change deniers.”

If you are a German who dares to openly question or even criticize your government’s draconian COVID restrictions, you are “teaming up with the far-right” at best and a neo-Nazi even better.

COVID protests escalate in Germany – In Germany, protesters against COVID restrictions are teaming up with the far-right. The new government now plans to crack down on the messenger service they use: Telegram.

“Those who take to the streets, to a large extent, are a mixture of the far-right extremist scene, the far-right Reichsbürger scene, conspiracy theorists, hooligans, and an alternative esoteric scene.”
