I’m a longtime resident of West Hollywood and a lifelong advocate for equality, calling for healing after this period of division and hostility that the people of West Hollywood have endured.
The end of the “State of Emergency” is long overdue, and calls on us to reflect on the last three years: Mistake were made. “The science” changed. People were censored, their pain denied and their voices hushed away.
Meanwhile, reactive and harmful policies were implemented in WeHo, scapegoating people based on their health choices. Mandates, passports and other punitive measures were often intended to punish and coerce into compliance, and the system abandoned the sacrosanct principle of voluntary informed consent.
The people of West Hollywood who were subjected to this discrimination and segregation deserve a meaningful consideration of their experiences, not to be judged, ignored or denied. But while we can debate policy prescriptions, we should all be able to agree that everyone deserves to be heard, and that NO ONE should have to live in an atmosphere of humiliation and intimidation.
So, in order for us to move forward, we have to pivot.
We must ensure that Weho is actually a place where everyone feels affirmed and accepted. What we ultimately need is an official non-discrimination policy; that acknowledges the reality of our experiences and respects all of our God given human rights.
As a step in that direction, I’m asking City Council to direct staff to issue a public impact report, that includes the experiences of people negatively impacted by vaccine mandates, passports and related measures in West Hollywood. As the co-founder of Free WeHo Coalition (FreeWeho.com), I am happy to offer my help in good faith, to connect you to our local LGBTQ medical freedom community.
I truly believe that together, we can break through the fear and stigma of the last three years. In the wise words of CS Lewis, “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind”
I am so sick and tired of this Monday morning quarterbacking, now that we have things under control. We have things under control, because we got vaccines. Yes, I’m sure that they made some mistakes, along the way. But they are scientists. Anybody who questions them, should have a valid degree or experience in dealing with infectious disease. They were learning as they went. Now everybody criticizes them, when their goal was just to reduce human death and sickness. I applaud them for that. I am sick and tired of this “I told you so,” rhetoric. We all need to… Read more »
Moving on is easy if you’re one of the lucky ones who have not suffered from injury or death from the shots. Some were fooled, some were in on the agenda, but regardless, the information required to make the correct decisions were available from the start.
Readers of the comments below should be aware that Cy literally works for BioNTech/Pfizer
Silly rabbit, communists don’t just give up the power they’ve seized.
WHAT ❓ They did in the former Soviet Republics 💖 and eastern Europe, now look at what a serious mistake that was ❗ Now you have the openly neo-nazi azov battalion running the Ukraine, neo-nazis also running the Baltic States and, fascist full on racist autocrats like Viktor Orbán in Hungry. The list goes on…..
All you needed to do was observe. No big deal for BLM to march, then why close the parks and beaches? Mayor of DC and other politicians issue mask mandates, then seen at weddings and hair salons maskless. Then why masks for us? Newsom’s kids attending private school in person, then why are our schools closed?
Black Lives Matter protests did NOT cause an uptick in COVID-19 mainly BECAUSE they took the Pandemic ☣ seriously by Masking 😷 and getting Vaccinated 💉 . The Black Lives Matter Protests Actually Reduce COVID-19’s Spread BECAUSE what they were advocating and practicing are Nonpharmaceutical Disease Containment Methods that have been shown to have worked for centuries of Epidemiology.
I’ll quote you..I think you are the only person who believes this, “The Black Lives Matter Protests (riots) Actually Reduce COVID-19’s Spread .”
If you missed it in case you are color blind, there is a hyperlink to a SCIENCE Journal proving my point. I can’t possibly be the ONLY person convinced of that FACT and, I DON’T own the Science Journal it links to❗🤣
Stunning… at this point if you think these shots were safe/effective you need a serious intervention. At the very least, ones position should be neutral on these kill shots and NOBODY should be promoting them. https://bailiwicknews.substack.com/p/american-domestic-bioterrorism-program
Studies consistently show – mRNA Vaccines are extremely Safe & Effective❗ Study of over 298 million doses given in the US alone, representing a massive collection of data to monitor the safety of these Vaccines 💉 . | Science-Based Medicine
How about the Cochran Report? Weaponization of Medical Research. Look into it before becoming another one of the sheep.🐏🐏🐏🐏🐏
Anti-maskers are seriously misinterpreting the Cochran Report and cherry picking it out of context to claim masks don’t work. Dr. Karla Soares-Weiser, the editor-in-chief of the Cochrane Library, said in a March 10th 2023 statement to clarify the matter:
“Many commentators have claimed that a recently-updated Cochrane Review shows that ‘masks don’t work’, which is an inaccurate and misleading interpretation.”
No we aren’t. It’s ok though I only did chemical and biowarfare safety in the Army as a job it’s cool I don’t need to tell you to eat glyphosate. I bet you do it anyway.
YES your are misinterpreting the study and here is Dr. Karla Soares-Weiser, Editor-in-Chief of the Cochrane Library, has responded on behalf of Cochrane:
“Many commentators have claimed that a recently-updated Cochrane Review shows that ‘masks don’t work’, which is an inaccurate and misleading interpretation. …….”
It’s nice this author wants to act all kumbaya in this op-ed while simultaneously calling for the city council to be “tried at the hague for crimes against humanity”.
I don’t see where the author calls for any of that. Actually, he seems to be asking for the first step, in a process of truth and reconciliation – like they had in Apartheid South Africa. And West Hollywood was certainly on the front lines, of Medicalized Apartheid. Without the truth part, you can’t really ask for reconciliation, either. If anything, he may be short-circuiting any calls for new Nuremberg Tribunals – at least as far as WeHo’s politicians goes. Let’s be clear…a LOT of people have been killed, by the organized Violations of the Nuremberg Principles, which occurred worldwide… Read more »
I agree with everything you said about western & American imperialism but, it’s NOT relevant to COVID-19, Vaccination or, Nonpharmaceutical disease containment methods. The antivaxx COVID-19 Pandemic deniers tend to be right-wing prowar Ukrop Azov supporters and, NOT victims of the establishment ❗
No one will answer this question: Why schools that did not close in others countries did not have any difference in Covid transmission? And do you think Newsom would danger his life…why would he put himself at risk by eating with a group with no mask. Oh and the BLM massive marches (riots) were ok but going to a beach or park was not.
Asked & answered a long time ago. In warning to U.S., COVID-19 rates soar after Denmark lifts all restrictions having capitulated to probusiness dogma on February 1st 2022, lifting all nonpharmaceutical Pandemic ☣ containment methods including masks 😷 , resulting in huge spikes in COVID-19 cases and DEATHS ❗
Vaccine requirements were never about your health or keeping you or anyone else alive, they were about controlling the hospitalization numbers because an excessive amount of people who refused to get vaccinated kept showing up at the hospital with covid complications, taking up hospital resources when they could have simply gotten a free readily available vaccine. Whenever the next pandemic arrives, this same scenario should absolutely play out with accepting the vaccination. It’s either that or we grant hospitals the right to refuse treatment to the unvaccinated burdening the system disproportionately.
The problem with that thesis – is that it relies upon the fraudulent notion that these injectables had any significant benefits for overall health – individually or at the population level. The data available shows that they don’t. Areas with lower acceptance, have lower ALL CAUSE MORTALITY figures. And that’s the statistic that matters, for the argument that was just made, to be valid. If a medical intervention causes more harm than good, it’s the intervention that will overwhelm the hospitals, not the initial illness. And in places in Africa, where the injection acceptance was exceedingly low – but use… Read more »
The COVID-19 Vaccines 💉 prevented well over 20 million deaths in its first year, study published in Lancet Infectious Diseases. Vaccines have direct protection and, indirect protection by reducing population transmission & relieving hospital strain ❗ https://www.statnews.com/2022/06/23/covid19-vaccines-prevention-global-deaths/ via @statnews
Seriously, who’s paying you? https://goodsciencing.com/covid/athletes-suffer-cardiac-arrest-die-after-covid-shot/
What you are citing is a Canadian Conspiracy website NOT a Medical⚕ Science source.
Nobody’s right to bodily autonomy was violated regarding the covid vaccine because quite simply anything short of the government showing up at your home requiring you to take it or face punishment is not a violation, no matter how you choose to move that goal post. And as I said, hospitals were not given the option to turn away the unvaccinated. I have absolutely no interest in your preference of conspiracy theory.
As a person who is very connected to “higher” (in vibrational frequency) collectives/ sources, I know with certainty to stay away from *all* synthetic drugs. (All humans should.) And so: I very much appreciate this article. I lost my job, I lost dozens of friends, I lost family members. My livelihood was ruined and my happiness seriously challenged. What kept me going was knowing there were people out there like you. Thank you so, so very much for writing this, for standing up for our temples (our bodies), and for being “out” about it. Many thanks. 🙏
“You don’t know that you’ve been brainwashed and lied to because you’ve been brainwashed and lied to.” 3 years later and we still have an alarming amount of people who believe the masks, lockdowns, and “health measures” were necessary. Yes, this is about depopulation. Yes, this is about transhumanism. Yes, this is about a financial reset. Yes, this is about financializing nature. Yes, this has been planned for a very long time. There’s no time to waste. Wise up. Get your information from independent sources with integrity like Whitney Webb, James Corbett, and Catherine Austin Fitts. Tell your grandchildren one… Read more »
With our RIGHTS there are also RESPONSIBILITIES. In times of crisis, civilized, MATURE, RESPONSIBLE ADULTS must put aside our individual rights FOR THE GREATER GOOD. A Democracy should never be about “I” but about “US”. It’s a sad comment on how soft, spoiled and selfish some generations have become that these minor inconveniences that had to be enacted were considered insurmountable obstacles.
The “minor inconveniences” referred to here – had LETHAL CONSEQUENCES, for far too many – Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters (RIP) for example. He appears to have been one, of far too many victims of “SADS”, and “Died Suddenly” “Black Swan” events. They’re happening everywhere, all the time,now. Thoughts and prayers go out to Jamie Foxx and his family, in this critical time in their lives. The founders of the United States of America knew that unchecked “Democracy” meant “Mob Rule”, and “the TYRANNY of the majority”. That’s why this nation was founded as a Constitutionally Limited Republic, with… Read more »
Only those with pre-existing health conditions, the overweight, and the extreme elderly were ever those at risk of becoming very ill or dying from Covid. They should have been isolated and protected, but everyone else should have been free to move about to their jobs, schools and everyday life. The Covid death count is fraudulent because most of those in that total died of something else and just happened to have Covid at the time of their demise. Hospitals got big reimbursements for every Covid death so there was that incentive to count as many Covid deaths as possible.
Fact check your claims. Because you’re ILL informed.
No, Tim, I’m not. I am well aware of the conflicting opinions out there, largely in the mainstream media. You and I could go back and forth on this forever but the sources I choose to believe are those who provided opposing information in the beginning and was ridiculed but, in time, was proven to be absolutely correct. The heads of epidemiology and of internal medicine at schools like Yale and Stanford, and others whose credentials could not just be dismissed, but who disagreed with Fauci et al carried a lot of credibility with me. I was vaxxed, dutifully wore… Read more »
YOU cite no credible sources in making YOUR FALSE CLAIMS ❗ Being unvaccinated is still the biggest risk factor for dying from COVID-19. NO Medical⚕ sources are NOT lying, COVID-19 Deaths in the US Continue to Be Undercounted. Legitimate Hospitals, Pharmaceutical and Biotech, make LESS MONEY than Quackery Supplement and Alternative Medicine Scams that are promoting antivaxx misinformation.
Cy, we have been over this many times before! Just as your sources are meaningless to me, mine are meaningless to you, so why bother? I don’t keep a library of everything I have read or analysis I have listened to just on the off-chance Cy will demand I deliver something you would discount anyway, which would have been a massive waste of my time. I am right-of-center and you are so far Left you can’t even see the center.
In the last comment, the one you are replying to I cited 2 SCIENCE sources and one mainstream capitalist media NEWS source. I’m NOT trying to convince you of anything, ONLY mitigate the potential harm of your misinformation.
