Peak Stupidity drew this comparison over 3 weeks ago in a post titled Is COVID-19 the Socialists' 9/11?. I'd like to make some more comparisons in this and upcoming posts about this infotainment panic-fest we are undergoing versus the 9/11 attack. One thing that stands in contrast is that 9/11 was one day, while this Kung Flu deal is a slow, ongoing attack on America.
I will give my usual disclaimer here. Skip this paragraph if you've read it before. No, I will not categorically say that basics of the attacks on the buildings that day were really as reported or as most Americans see them. However, I don't comment because I don't want to turn this blog into that type of blog (there are plenty), and I am not expert enough to know about some very important aspects of a determination of what the heck really went on. As I've written before, I do believe the Deep State and parts of the US Feral Gov't are up for some really dirty deeds. That's all.
This fairly short post will be about the massive and fairly quick (for governments, right?) response to this purported COVID-one-niner crisis, as compared to what happened shortly after 9/11.
President, at-the-time, George W. Bush came on TV shortly after 9/11 to reassure very pissed-off Americans that we would get whoever performed the dastardly deeds back, and start right away at it. A majority (15) of these 19 terrorists hailed from Saudi Arabia, and the group was backed by the Al-Qaeda group and reported to the infamous Osama bin Laden from Afghanistan. OK, we would send our overwhelming military forces to Afghanistan and punish that group and its leader. (Interestingly enough, the long-term response to this attack did not involve paring down immigrants or students from Saudi Arabia. In fact, more have come to America yearly than ever before. Yeah, that's another one of those brain-farts, I guess, by our crack operatives in the US Government.)
What the Bush Administration did do was go ahead and launch a massive invasion of the country of Iraq. Well, it's near there, but ... This is something that almost nobody but the hard-core neocons like Max Boot* thinks was a good idea today. There were plenty wondering what the idea was at the time, too. I'll admit, as someone that had been following politics somewhat but not as savvy as today, I just figured there was some connection that I didn't know. They had to know some stuff we are not privy to at the State Department, the CIA, the NSA, whoever, right?
No, it turns out, the 9/11 attack was just used to, among lots of other things, implement some plans of the neocons that had nothing to do with 9/11. I see a parallel with what's been going on for the last month and a half, based on the excuse of this planned-demic. No, that's nice wordplay I got from someone, but I don't maintain the spread of this particular version of the Corona flu virus was planned out. I do think that it was used to implement Police State strategies and huge Socialist and Crony-Capitalist spending sprees that may have already been planned. That is very much like how the attack on Iraq, the "Patriot" act, and the formation of the perfectly-named-for-a-Police State Department of Homeland (spit!) Security seemed to have been already planned.
A difference between the 9/11 excuse for DOING SOMETHING! and this Corona panic-fest excuse is that this newer event is not a 1-day event but a few month long event that we are witnessing today still. The huge amount of information flow going on now, even though that is part of the way the Infotainment inducing this panic-fest has been carried out, will let us communicate better, right here for example, and analyze calmly whether we have been, or are still being, set up.
This Dr. Fauci character has played the leading role in the Kung Flu response in America. Does he have someone whispering in his ear too, telling him certain plans have been made and he'd better keep with the program, or else? Are they giving him medical advise he no canna' refuse?
