Why are some respected alt-media embracing a police state?

Catte Black

It should be obvious by now to anyone that the covid19 pandemic, whatever its origins, is being used to fast forward a “new normal” world of unparalleled government power, surveillance and curtailment of individual liberty.

We are looking already at:

  • Compulsory DNRs for some elderly.
  • Biometric chips or bracelets to monitor whether or not you have permission to be outside your home or engage in work
  • Drone surveillance as normal.
  • Apps on your phone that can detect any breach of the self-isolation policy.
  • Huge new police powers of arrest and detention for anyone suspected of carrying the virus.
  • Suspension of elections for indefinite periods at government discretion

And this is only the starter course. We can be pretty sure they are currently just easing us in. The real stuff will be rolling along in the next months or maybe years (depending on how quickly they feel able to get this on)

This is the fabric of nightmare. A worst-case horror story that is the absolute quintessence of everything the alt-media is supposed to oppose.

Surely, you would think, any self-respecting alt-media person would be opposing this with everything they have while they still have a voice.

China hushed up work of ‘Bat Woman’ coronavirus expert who unlocked killer gene that could have saved lives

Her team’s work was said to have revealed the virus was linked to horseshoe bats found more than 1,000 miles away in Yunnan, a region of southern China.

Gao Yu, a Chinese journalist freed last week after 76 days of lockdown in Wuhan, said he spoke to Shi while he was in custody.

He said: “We learned later her institute finished gene-sequencing and related tests as early as January 2 but was muzzled.”

But reportedly that same day, Yanyi Wang, director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s director sent an email to staff and key officials ordering them to keep quiet about the new virus.

‘DISEASE LEAKED FROM LAB’

Covid-19 was originally thought to have come from a so-called “wet market” in the city but there has been mounting speculation linking the disease to the lab and another in the city.

Scientists at the institute experimented on bats as part of a project funded by the US National Institutes of Health, which licences it to receive American money, the Mail on Sunday reports.

The £30 million Wuhan Institute of Virology is the most advanced laboratory of its type on the Chinese mainland and is based ten miles from the now infamous “wet market”.

Coronavirus Highlights Irrelevance of Entertainment Elite

The Iconoclast zeroes in on possibly the most beneficial silver lining of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. America’s version of royalty — the entertainment elite — is suffering from a “crisis of relevancy.” The posturing, self-important leftists comprising it have been “exposed as egotistical narcissists.”

Forgive me for the excruciating first half minute of this video, but nothing emphasizes the cluelessness and irrelevance of Tinseltown glitterati like watching them sing John Lennon’s moonbat anthem “Imagine” while normal people lose their jobs:

Turkish regime uses armored military vehicle to destroy border fence so migrant invaders can cross into Greece

Greek authorities have released shocking night-vision video footage that depicts a Turkish tactical armored combat vehicle ripping down the border fencing along the Greek-Turkish border to aid migrant invaders – most of whom are fighting-age men – to cross over illegally into Greece.

The brazen move by the Turkish regime comes as tens of thousands of migrants have amassed at the Turkish-Greek border after Turkey’s Islamist regime leader, Recep Erdogan, made good on his long-standing promise to “open the gates” and flood Europe with migrants, The Sun reports.

When Did We Trade In The New Frontier For The Apocalypse?

You have to go all the way back to the ’50s to find real, touching faith in our society during a time of crisis.

Pat Frank’s Alas, Babylon is a fascinating artifact of mid-century Americana, the pop lit equivalent of a battleship-sized Cadillac or drive-in movie theater. The book imagines a nuclear war and its aftermath in a small Florida town, yet compared to other entrants in the post-apocalyptic genre, it’s downright optimistic.

Unlike Nevil Shute’s On the Beach, Frank does not anticipate the utter destruction of the human race by radioactive fallout. Despite its biblical title, the bookis not infused with the Catholic pessimism of Walter Miller’s A Canticle for Leibowitz. In There Will Come Soft Rains, Ray Bradbury imagined the half-life of an automated house after the nuclear annihilation of its inhabitants. Frank shares Bradbury’s interest in space-age gadgetry, but he was confident the same can-do spirit that produced supersonic jets and mass refrigeration would allow us endure an atomic holocaust. He actually followed the success of his novel with a practical handbook for surviving nuclear war.

Austrian Chancellor Kurz blasts Turkey for migration ‘attack’ against EU

Europe has been put to the test after Turkey provided free passage for waves of migrants heading westward, Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said, describing Ankara’s move as an “attack on the EU.”

The latest move by Turkey to allow migrants to leave its territory over the weekend is an attack “on the European Union and Greece,” and also a “test for the EU,” Kurz said on Tuesday.

If European countries cave in to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s pressure, then 13,000 migrants desperately waiting at the EU border will only be “the beginning,” the Austrian chancellor warned.

According to Kurz, the migrants gathered at the Greek border didn’t come from war-ravaged parts of Syria – their exodus was “deliberately organized” by Turkey.

Turkey’s “problems in Syria” are that Turkey is an illegal occupier using force against a sovereign state in an attempt to annex the occupied territory. Period.
