What should be a red flag to all ex jw's, is the suppression of information about the shots in general. The vilification of anybody who has an alternative point of view. Sounds exactly like current and past jw-ism to me.(ie-cult) Speak against the org/shots and you deserve to be shunned and thought of as 'mentally diseased'.
If anybody could listen to Ron Johnson's press conference today and not be touched by the people who have been impacted by the vaccines must be emotionally retarded or psychopaths. These were ALL people who were and are pro-vaccine who had horrible results and are dismissed as mental problems or making things up. If you can't sympathize with their conditions how about their medical bills? who pays that? surely not the vaccine producers,so who does? I can tell you, us, by increased monthly bills to account for all those suffering. If you think the government is paying think again, where does the government get their money if they aren't just printing more? us.
There is tons of information by highly qualified individuals who are sounding the alarm about the vaccines but are being silenced, having their funding pulled, fired from their jobs and vilified on social media and in the media at large. When free open discussion is not allowed there is a huge problem.
The media could find out why people have 'vaccine hesitancy' and do some pieces, real truthful pieces, and go from there. Instead anybody who may have other issues due to immune issues, recent cancer/chemo issues, etc... and are in fact quite hesitant are 'nut jobs', 'anti-vaccine', not very well informed and so forth. I find it just the opposite, those who are hesitant do almost nothing but research and discuss the vaccines at large. The contrary is true of those who ran right out and got it, saw a news piece on mainstream news, gotta get the shot! The authorities (elders) told me to.
If you have to lie to get people to go along with you that should be a red flag. Everyone on this board knows this. jw's lie to get people to join. They even re-defined the word 'lie' in the Aid book. You, who came to our homes, took our loved ones, knew full well you were not completely honest with the newby. You said they must join to fully understand. I understand, they were holding your family hostage, I get it. It is the same with the vaccine industry, you must get an experimental shot that the research has not worked on in over 10 years and then see how it goes. It has never been tested on humans for any length of time, all animal studies have been unsuccessful. Hope for the best, trust in jah, trust the so called 'science'. How about follow the money?
I am so disappointed by those who vilify those who are hesitant especially in America where freedom used to mean something. I still see posts by those of you who are 'hesitant' about taking blood even though you are no longer a jw. Why should anyone honor that belief of yours or of jw's when the opposite is not true?
Why can't we look at on main stream media https://www.facebook.com/votewichmann/posts/389791942711774 see 17:24 the chart re: Drug Adverse Event Comparison (fda & cdc for those of you who will only look at those)?
Just like the jw's and all their problems, the information is so large we need multiple sites like this, books, cd's, videos and maybe more ex jw's than current. So it is with vaccine information, only you have to dig, ask questions, even put yourself out there in uncomfortable places and letters to find more information than the main stream media is willing to give.
I think some people may benefit from the vaccines and others who have had covid have natural immunity. It should be a personal choice in which neither is vilified. That is what freedom is, choice. To date not one researcher has proven that natural immunity is not as good as the vaccine nor as effective to variants be it natural immunity to original or the vaccines. (Moderna may be the exception, they really don't know, many who had Moderna are now also getting both shots of Pfizer just to make sure)
I, for one, am tired of being vilified for saying anything 'bad' about jw's, even if it is true, and of being vilified even if hundreds of doctors/researchers/nurses and so forth are also asking the same questions about vaccines that are considered 'bad'.
The day we can no longer speak freely and have inquiring minds is the day our society will die, in my opinion. We cannot grow if we are being stifled in thinking, speech and actions. (as long as we are not harming others, their properties nor stopping others from their (contrary) opinions, free speech non the less) that is worded poorly, hope you get my gist.
