Russia's COVID cultists in full retreat?
Promising signs of a total narrative collapse
We have exciting news to share with you, both about this blog and also about the Russian people casting off the COVID Yoke. Obviously the blog-related news is vastly more important so we will start with that.
Our strange and sometimes harrowing explorations of COVID Russia are being republished all over the interwebs—and not just in English. So far we’ve seen translations of our articles in German, Dutch, Italian, Russian and Bulgarian. A fairly large media outlet contacted us about doing a French translation of our thought-provoking interview with Mike Whitney, but it seems they lost interest. It is what it is.
Earlier this week, Off-Guardian republished our article about Alexander Gintsburg murdering his own vaccine. We are deeply indebted to the fine folks at OffG.
But the juiciest blog-scoop of the week is that the Brownstone Institute graciously reprinted our brief overview of the transparent lies and baloney that have been weaponized by Russia’s COVID cultists.
This is very encouraging. Brownstone regularly features COVID-related analysis from top academics and experts—some of whom have played prominent roles in challenging COVID policies in the United States and around the world. We’re honored to keep such esteemed company. Please share our article—let Brownstone know that you crave more Waggaman.
Generally speaking, we think these are very cool results for 2-months’-worth of blogging. Admittedly, we haven’t been well received among the “Russophile” analysts and blog-people—who continue to largely ignore anything COVID-related in Russia, or worse, just constantly lie about it.
We really want to encourage people to start talking about this stuff.
COVID conference in Moscow!
Tomorrow your humble Moscow correspondent will be attending a conference hosted by Russia’s Doctors for Truth. If you are in Moscow, you should come. It should be a very interesting and educational event and we hope to file a full report on the proceedings. Stay tuned. In other news…
Russians use chicken codes to sneak into Vax-Only Zones
Rospotrebnadzor specialists have identified cases where… residents of the Rostov region enter shopping centers and railway stations using QR codes taken from an iron, washing machine or chicken, the head of the regional department of the department Yevgeny Kovalev told reporters.
We are blessed to live among such heroes.
Meanwhile, State Duma deputies don’t need to show QR codes when entering the parliament building because “a special database” allegedly keeps track of how many antibodies each lawmaker has. That’s what the government claims, at least:
It’s such a hilarious charade—and everyone knows it. Thankfully there is a new scary variant that has struck fear into the heart of every Russian.
(Hat tip to valued reader and Russian state media veteran, Lil’ Kremlin, for spotting both of these hilarious stories and sending them to us.)
No one cares about Omicron
Let’s see what the Russian Forums are saying about the Double Secret Omega Mutation…
Everyone knows they are trying to keep the scam going in order to inject the kids. It’s just obvious.
Sputnik Kiddo is an abomination against science and basic human decency. They’re really going to try to inject children with this stuff. It’s just incredible.
Probably only a war or a fake alien invasion can save Russia’s COVID cultists from the lifetime of shame and humiliation that awaits them, once people decide that they’ve really had enough.
Here’s the thing: Russia really does offer the best chance at Resistance. A very clear majority of the country does not care at all about COVID—they are more worried about economic collapse. A recent poll found 61% of citizens cite the rise in prices as the main cause of anxiety—well ahead of concerns about poverty (36%), corruption (33%), rising unemployment (33%) and COVID (32%).
Like, this new Omicron stuff is just pure desperation. Russians are not buying it. They barely paid attention to the double-deadly Delta strain. It’s telling that Russia’s Bill Gates-linked lady has taken a lead role in trying to drum up fear about this new variant—probably this means that only the most hardened Schwab-worshipping fanatics can utter the word “Omicron” without dying inside.
We’re slowly witnessing a very serious narrative collapse. Can we start talking about what this means, for Russia, please?
Have a relaxing Saturday.
