As we are all huge David Icke fans in this thread, and the dumbest among us can't even stop mentioning him, here is his latest speech, likely from Saturday, on his home soil, the beautiful Isle of Wight. But was he right? If so, we know that right is evil, so well then.

We already know the right is evil. You were caught quoting goebbels.

But for the curious, (from CE's video) is Icke giving a speech while surrounded by wheely bins and a loon smoking weed and a crowd of some fellow travelers.

If Icke is such a reliable source of information, why does it get under your skin so much when anyone mentions any of the many, many literally insane claims he's made? Can't you find any sources that aren't full of ******

So there was a small effect of that here at least. But even for those individuals it's a loss of up to a year of life, due to a disease CE is pretending doesn't exist.

I don't bother engaging with those who will remain "proudly wrong" and steadfastly unconvinced by any amount of irrefutable evidence. In those situations I simply post the evidence for the benefit of lurkers and, dismiss the "proudly wrong" as a lost cause.

The far-right in Europe exists to the degree it does, because it is heavily supported by the Kremlin, financially and through targeted propaganda, as it well documented.

Or one you've referenced - David Icke

Who quotes from the most famously-debunked antisemitic hoax in history - The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

And who has claimed that schools "indoctrinate children with the unchallenged version of events" about the Holocaust. I know that he says that he's not a Holocaust denier. But he also makes claims that even you know are untrue (and stupid). He lies. And in light of those documented antisemitic claims by him, it makes sense to assume he's trying an unsubtle code, where "Lizard" means "Jewish Cabal"

Sure we are. I'll steal a quote from somebody: "If David Icke is a reliable source of anything, its Noise and maybe Comedy."

In other news, covid-19 is a serious health threat, and the vaccines save lives.

But by all means, buy a ticket to visit the hollow moon if you like.

What you seem to be saying is that you're surprised that the rare thing isn't happening more often.
Do you think that might be because it's rare?

You don't usually see people like this at any demonstrations against the fascist corona-regime.

Seriously, get a grip.

If you're claiming that there haven't been any news stories about side effects of the vaccines prior to the one you linked, you are wrong.

If you think that anyone you're arguing with here was ever under the delusion that the COVID-19 vaccines have zero chance of adverse effects, you are wrong.

Every vaccine to date has had a potential for adverse effects. The vaccines used against smallpox, measles, polio, chickenpox, rubella, hepatitis, diphtheria, influenza, tetanus, pertussis etcetera have all had a small chance of causing adverse reactions including death. And it's not just vaccines that carry a certain risk. Virtually any drug, even when properly administered and used, has the capacity to cause a serious adverse reaction, including death.

So what's your point, Tom?

I'm saying that in the past it seems that they would have scoured the world to find a story about a child that died of omicron before running that article.

The way you've scoured the internet to find a report of a child who may have died because of the vaccine?

The omicron variant is new, so there isn't much of a past to scour. But it's sadly easy to find reports of children who have died of COVID-19.

Indeed. That flag is the flag of Oswald Mosley's British Union of Fascists and National Socialists* at an anti lockdown demonstration in Trafalgar Square. You can see the flags of Canada House in the background.

Mosley married in a house owned by Goebbels with Hitler as guest of honour. I think it's safe to call anyone flying that flag proudly a Nazi.

The three antivaxers giving the Nazi salute were supporters of a minor candidate at a by election in Glasgow.

Note the vile use of the yellow star as well. VERY common outside Germany amongst antivaxers.

The AfD seems pretty antivax, and by most standards, they're far-right.

I read some stuff from a prophet the other day, and surprisingly, he's almost right some of the time, so I figure I'd better pay attention when he says we're all stuck in a matrix designed by Zionist space lizards so clever only he knows what they're up to. I mean hidden truths can't be any good unless they're hidden, right? The appearance of craziness is a ruse erected by the Illuminati to mislead us. He must be either a god or a lunatic, and he knows how to tie his shoes, so...god it is.

Nah, it's just his attempt to hide his antisemitic conspiracy theories by using codewords for Jews.

Well Stan's sure to win recognition of his right to have babies once the PFJ has ousted the hated Romans once and for all.

A question for anyone. Is CE claiming that the COVID-19 virus and its variants don't actually exist? If so, has this already been hashed out?

In both cases, this is "linked to" but not 100% confirmed (correlation does not equal causation), so that is two people (who probably died from the vaccines) out of 8,006,454 doses given. (and yes, you have to count both doses because there are recorded cases or myocarditis reactions that did not appear until after the second dose).

...and the other one of those two people was an overweight woman who died from blood clots, and who was taking medication for cranial diabetes insipidusa. That medication was Desmopressin, a drug that is also given to people with haemophilia to improve their blood clotting when they bleed.

ETA: Also worth noting regarding the man that article is about....
The person in question had not sought any medical advice or treatment for the symptoms, the board found.

The board also noted that Myocarditis was a treatable condition if identified, with earlier treatment offering better outcomes.
In NZ, everyone is kept back for observation for 30 minutes after getting each jab and they are fully briefed as to possible side effects, including the symptoms of myocarditis. They are instructed to seek urgent medical help if they have any symptoms (chest pains, arrhythmia, shortness of breath, swelling of the legs, ankles and feet, fatigue, headache, body aches, joint pain, fever, a sore throat and diarrhoea).


Now I mean no disrespect toward this man, but how silly do you have to be to ignore that advice and those warning signs?

First of all, Steve, thank you for your reply. I'll now drop that aspect lest future revelations become addressable.

I postulate as silly as anyone who ignores mountains of legitimate evidence to invest their lives with beliefs of misinformation, particularly misinformation demonstrably substantiated as such.

Experts unpick symbols and slogans at anti-COVID vaccination mandate protest in Perth

Quote:
...At these rallies, nurses in scrubs, people in high-vis vests and parents with small children march alongside people in Donald Trump caps and QAnon t-shirts...


...In this photo, the Australian national flag and the red ensign flag, flown at sea by Australian merchant ships, lead the way across the bridge at Perth's Elizabeth Key.

But they're being flown upside down, which is a sign of extreme distress, according to University of South Australia law lecturer Joe McIntyre.

"It's a way of communicating: 'I am in intense distress,'" he said.

"There's this sense that, 'I know the truth. I am fighting a righteous battle to protect my country. Why can't anybody see how unlawful our governments are?'"

Under Australian national flag protocols, the flag should never be flown upside down.

But upside-down flags have been used around the world as a protest symbol, including at the Capitol Hill riot in Washington in January this year...


...But Dr McIntyre said the use of the red ensign by sovereign citizen groups could also be because it was associated with a time in history when the White Australia policy existed in Australia.

The Canadian alternative-right has also appropriated their country's red ensign.

"The sovereign citizens' movement in the US is historically white supremacist," he said...


...But some protesters have co-opted and adopted symbols and slogans from overseas, including supporters of former US president Donald Trump.

For example, on the right of the photo below, two people are wearing matching red "Make Australia Great Again" caps.

It's a local remake of Mr Trump's campaign slogan, which has been widely adopted by the anti-lockdown and anti-vaccine protest movements, including Clive Palmer's United Australia Party.

In the photo, a man is wearing a T-shirt of the QAnon conspiracy theory, based around a belief that the world is run by a global cabal of Satan-worshipping paedophiles who control American politics and the media.

His T-shirt's slogan of "where we go one, we go all" is QAnon's rallying call.

Part of the pro-Trump conspiracy theory was that Mr Trump would expose the cabal, including Democrat politicians like US President Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton.

Dr Chilton said the anti-vaccination movement was alive with these kinds of theories...


...This sign uses symbols from Nazi Germany, including the deeply offensive use of the yellow star, which Jews were forced to wear.

In recent years, it has been used in the US by anti-vaccination protesters to symbolise oppression.

Dr Rich said the use of this symbol could indicate the involvement of white supremacist groups or just that people had created an alternate reality in their mind where this was appropriate...
Neo-nazi and white supremacist groups are absolutely at the core of anti-vaccination movements, not just in Australia but around the world. I've seen White Rose propaganda about town. I'll bet that you have, too. They're spreading the exact talking points that Childlike Empress has been repeating in this thread - bodily autonomy, freedoom from tyranny, masks and lockdowns don't work, the pandemic is a hoax... the correlations are direct, and obvious.

The White Rose, by the way, aren't just interested in spreading antivaccine propaganda. They are also strongly associated with flat earth conspiracies, Qanon, white supremacy and antisemitic holocaust denial. That's the team you're in bed with, Childlike Empress. How does that make you feel?

I think all of us here know exactly how that makes Childlike Empress feel.

I'm with the original White Rose and have never heard of your astroturf fringe group. Maybe read their pamphlets, they say a lot about the present.

It seems BOTH are not allowed by International Skeptics forum bot, as all images I posted were always removed by the forum bot. So I gave up.

There is no "original" White Rose, unless you're talking about the anti-Nazi resistance group during the War, which bears very little resemblance to the current incarnation. If you're with White Rose today, then you are a member of an antisemitic holocaust denying white supremacist group. Perhaps you might want to reconsider that.

the Roman salute is not Roman at all. It was invented in the 18th century.

There is no ancient roman description of it and all ancient artwork displaying salute gestures, show nothing like it.

Of course there is. Read their pamphlets. First paragraph:

It is certain that today every honest German is ashamed of his government.
