Not being a TV watcher, I only saw it in a newsfeed the next day: actor Woody Harrelson’s opening monologue on Saturday Night Live, during which he dropped the verbal equivalent of a bomb.
It was buried inside usual late night stand-up comic fare. He suddenly pivoted, began talking about an imaginary movie script dating (interestingly!) from 2019:
Okay, so the movie goes like this. The biggest drug cartels in the world get together and buy up all the media and all the politicians and force all the people in the world to stay locked in their homes. And people can only come out if they take the cartel’s drugs and keep taking them over and over.
I threw the script away. I mean, who is going to believe that crazy idea being forced to do drugs? I do that voluntarily all day long.
He hadn’t mentioned covid or covid policies directly, or the mRNA shots, but you’d have to have been in a cave the past three years not to get it.
Corporate media went into collective hysteria. Just their headlines have all the linguistic-propagandistic features I’ve noted, without even an attempt at an objective examination.
From The Washington Post: On SNL, Woody Harrelson Pushes Popular Covid-19 Conspiracy.
From the reliably hard-left HuffPo: Woody Harrelson Rambles About Weed, Anti-Vax Conspiracy, in SNL Monologue.
From the equally left wing Daily Beast: Woody Harrelson Spews Anti-Vax Conspiracies in Rambling SNL Monologue.
From Salon: Woody Harrelson’s anti-vax joke raises questions about what we excuse in likeable people: The goofball star’s inebriated SNL stunt makes us wonder what we’ll tolerate from conspiracy theorist friends.
From Rolling Stone — once, long ago, a publication of the counterculture but now only a guarantor of official narratives: Woody Harrelson Spreads Anti-Vax Conspiracies During SNL Monologue.
From Variety: Woody Harrelson’s Saturday Night Live Monologue Makes COVID Conspiracy Jokes.
From Entertainment Tonight: Woody Harrelson Draws Backlash Over Covid-19 Conspiracy Theory in ‘SNL’ Monologue.
I’ll stop there. I think I’ve made my point.
Politifact delivered this curious remark: Woody Harrelson’s ‘SNL’ pandemic monologue not selectively edited by NBC.
In other words, Bad NBC for not censoring!
Note also some of the other language used in these headlines, which I may not have noted before. Harrelson “rambles” about weed, conspiracies. He “spreads,” or “spews,” anti-vax conspiracies.
Dumb people ramble. Sick people spread disease. Disgusting people spew things from their mouths.
And of course, not one of these derogatory headlines avoids the Establishment’s favorite demonizing word: conspiracy.
Honestly, I don’t know that much about Harrelson. I’d heard his name before and that’s all. I’d assumed that like most actors on that show, he’s another mediocrity who owes his paycheck to his insufferably left-wing politics.
Maybe my assumptions about at least some of these folks are wrong….
Maybe even liberals are picking up on the fact that something terrible was unleashed on the world late in 2019, serving as justification for shutting it down in March, 2020, in what was clearly a globally-coordinated effort.
Most listeners of such shows, of course, are just ordinary folks, whatever their political leanings. Many saw their lives go out of control, their livelihoods destroyed by lockdowns, placing their health (mental as well as physical) at risk for reasons having nothing to do with any virus.
Many are not recovering during this “new normal” when many of us are wondering when the next shoe is going to drop.
But in the meantime, the dominoes are falling. One “conspiracy theory” from 2020 is increasingly obvious to anyone with a functioning brain.
The FBI is now openly endorsing the idea that we have compelling reasons for believing the coronavirus came from a “lab incident” in Wuhan. What FBI director Christopher Wray recently said:
“… you’re talking about a potential leak from a Chinese government-controlled lab that killed millions of Americans, and that’s precisely what that capability was designed for…. I should add that, that our work related to this continues. And there are not a whole lot of details I can share that aren’t classified…. I will just make the observation that the Chinese government seems to me has been doing its best to try to thwart and obfuscate the work here, the work that we’re doing, the work that our U.S. government and close foreign partners are doing. And that’s unfortunate for everybody….”
Pretty circumspect. The idea, stated openly, that the release of the virus was deliberate, I assume is still “conspiracy theory” territory.
Definitely so, if accompanied by the allegation that our very own Deep State was involved! This is Ron Unz’s theory, which has received the silent treatment.
I would refer people back to the World Economic Forum / Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation sponsored Event 201, held at Johns Hopkins University on October 19, 2019.
The source of Harrelson’s movie script?
No, this does not prove, absolutely, that the coronavirus was released on purpose. It merely suggests compellingly that the official consensus on the matter may be wrong. For even “accident theorists” have to admit: when a few of the wealthiest and most powerful people in the world host a semisecret meeting featuring a “tabletop” exercise in which a pandemic breaks out and they strategize a global-level response to it, a response including vaccines and dealing with resistance to top-down mandates, I’d think even the most ardent Establishmentarian has to wonder.
Especially since we have extensive documentation of the gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab, bankrolled by one Anthony Fauci, about which he lied through his teeth!
I understand some of the reluctance of decision-makers in government and corporate media to face what has happened and come clean.
If this thing was the product of gain-of-function research and then released on purpose, those who did so are responsible for the deaths of more innocent people than Adolf Hitler is accused of killing during the Holocaust!
Moreover, we still don’t know the long term effects of the mRNA shots, boosters for which are still being pushed on an increasingly reluctant public (because whatever limited effectiveness the shots may have seems to wear off in a few months).
What we have are numerous cases of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (I’ve actually seen it called that on a number of sites, with the acronym SADS).
The number of athletes in their 20s, 30s, or 40s, who have mysteriously dropped dead from myocarditis or closely related ailments since the mRNA shots were introduced (Dec./Jan. 2020-21) is off the scale; nothing like this has ever been recorded before!
Here is the most recent, just the other day. Such cases are always described as “under investigation.” We know that nearly all professional athletes have had the mRNA shots, because their teams or other professional organizations mandated it.
We can be reasonably sure that no “official investigation” is going to tie the deaths to the shots. Big Pharma is simply too powerful. (One thinks of how a lot of scientists and even doctors dragged their feet declaring cigarettes a direct cause of lung cancer and heart disease — back when Big Tobacco was a money power.)
Comment sections under such aggregated articles tend to be verbal slugfests between mRNA shot believers and skeptics, usually beginning with the commonsense question, “Was she vaxxed?” answered by dimwits reciting, like robots, statements straight out of the official narrative playbook.
The Hill has an interesting if visibly uncomfortable discussion of the Harrelson blow-up; I’m a bit surprised YouTube hasn’t censored it. But note that YouTube thought police couldn’t let this go without posting all the official narratives prominently beneath the video; the elites absolutely must try to maintain control. They follow The Science; all else is “misinformation.”
Again, read the comments. I am guardedly encouraged, because ordinary people are posting what they’ve had three years to figure out.
It is true that billions of people have received these shots and not had any adverse effects.
I don’t know how many people grasp that this says nothing about what might happen down the road.
Conceivably some effects will accumulate and not show up for years. They may shorten life spans in ways barely traceable to the shots. Or younger women who got them in their teens will be unable to carry a pregnancy to term. Or, when “vaccinated” men’s sperm counts drops.
Or, perhaps they can have children — who turn out to be sterile!
I’m only floating possibilities, of course; obviously these are not facts I can claim to have hard evidence for. I’m not worried about this. Leftists never support their main claims with evidence.
My first point is, we don’t know. No one does. The shots were experimental. Not even Big Pharma execs denied this. No one can know the full range of possible effects of an experimental treatment foisted on populations at a global level.
What we do know: more people have been injured or have dropped dead following these shots than from all previous vaccines put together. And that other proposed treatments, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, were demonized.
My second point: given what information we do have — the fact that almost 7 million people have died from covid, that over a thousand professional athletes have died mysteriously over the past two years, with millions more people alleging harm they trace to the shots manufactured by corporations legally indemnified from lawsuits — we could be looking at the biggest crime against humanity in human history!
This looks to have been a bioweapon in two parts. Part One was the coronavirus itself. Part Two was the “vaccine,” with career-ending consequences for many who refused it.
All so Deep State superelites serving GloboCorp could get Trump out of office, enrich the billionaires in their midst, and lay their global control grid in place.
Knowing that these people are sociopaths keeps me from asking how they sleep at night, or look at themselves in the mirror by day: people such as the Schwabster who have been quite open about seeing covid as their best opportunity ever to institute their Great Reset.
What I wonder is what they plan to do if the entire package of narratives in which they are heavily invested unravels, simply because increasing numbers of people no longer buy it and will take up arms, if necessary, to fight against it.
This issue, of official narratives collapsing like rows of dominoes under the slightest rational scrutiny, extends well beyond the plan-demic.
The present White House is clearly more interested in Ukraine’s borders than those of its own country, and just sent $10 billion more taxpayer dollars to that corrupt sinkhole.
This, as I said last week, is money not going to E. Palestine, Ohio, to help clean up that mess.
The most left-wing administration in U.S. history doesn’t mind canceling a community of mostly Trump supporters — most of them white.
In that Bidenista administration, we have a Vice President, a Transportation Secretary, and an Assistant Health Secretary all of whom owe their jobs to Identity Politics: to the fact that they are members of politically sacrosanct groups (respectively: black, gay, trans). All are laughingstocks. The second, we know now, is utterly incompetent.
This is the perfect storm for an empire in long-term (engineered) decline.
How many people are figuring all this out, that yet another reason for not trusting modern medicine is that even medical schools’ top preoccupation these days is Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Would you want to be operated on by a surgeon who believed he (she?) could be any gender he (she?) liked, whose ideology had overwhelmed common horse sense biology?
Returning again to Ukraine: are people also figuring out that the official narrative on why Putin invaded depends on much of the history of the region, especially of the U.S./NATO backed coup of 2014, being memory-holed? Come to think of it, I’m not even sure what the official narrative is supposed to be. I guess it’s that Putin woke up one morning and looked in the mirror and told himself, “Being the psycho-dictator that I am, I think I’ll attack Ukraine and annex four of its provinces!”
One would like to think a reckoning is coming…. We have to be careful, however. As I’ve noted many times, GloboCorp is still holding the bulk of the cards. Its minions control all “legacy” media, all the NGOs and outfits like the WHO, most of the governments of the world all via money flows, and nearly all of popular culture in the West via its grip on Hollywood and the entertainment industry generally — the reason the occasional Woody Harrelson causes gaskets to blow.
Censorship is still the “new normal”: even if we now know that serious medical professionals were censored when they criticized the covid lockdowns and the official mRNA narrative (think: Twitter files).
After the biggest power grab in history (as well as redistribution of wealth upwards), people are waking up in increasing numbers.
I keep coming back to: What’s Next?
Nowhere, ever, do those in power relinquish it willingly. And we’ve never seen a wealth-and-power structure like that of present-day globalism.
These psychopaths could “accidentally” release something deadlier than covid was. We peasants would have no defenses against it, or against the next wave of lockdowns which would be enforced at gunpoint.
Or they could stage the cyberattack I’ve speculated on (small-scale cyberattacks are already occurring on a regular basis). Such an event wouldn’t kill us, but it would effectively shut down our ability to communicate and share information.
Or, if GloboCorp fears losing control of the global situation, it could maneuver the world into nuclear Armageddon. As I wrote last week: a single nuclear-tipped missile strikes somewhere in Ukraine. Russia is blamed. Western corporate media goes into hysterics. “Joe Biden” blusters incoherently, then blunders his way to a U.S./NATO response. Matters escalate from there.
GloboCorp top dogs ride it out in their underground bunkers.
You’ll find people telling you that these are the best and most exciting times to be alive. They’ll typically cite all the great technology, or perhaps purely economic statistics, e.g., there have never been more millionaires than there are today. They never consider the reality that we’re all sustaining ourselves on an addiction to printed money — much less that education long ago degenerated into pure indoctrination; that violence, homelessness, mental illness, and substance abuse are all on the rise; and that much of popular culture is now a cesspool of filth.
No, these are now dangerous times to be alive, if only because of all the unknowns. We should act accordingly. Look around and be grateful for what you have. Be kind to your loved ones — and neighbors and any strangers who permit it. Spend time outdoors; watch a sunrise or sunset (or both). Get right with God. Because the next shoe could drop at almost any time.
