Contradictory voices from the USA concerning the “Freedom Day” in Berlin

By Wolfgang Effenberger.

The New York Times posted on Twitter:

„This was the scene in Berlin, where an estimated 17,000 people defied social-distancing and mask requirements to join a protest supported by neo-Nazi groups, conspiracy theorists and others who said they were fed up with the restrictions.“

This text is largely identical with the official statements from Berlin.

The US-American doctor and politician Ronald Ernest “Ron” Paul has a completely different view of the events. He is a member of the Libertarian Party and was a Republican member of the US House of Representatives between 1976 and 2013 and ran for the US presidential elections in 1988, 2008 and 2012.

His article appeared in his institute “For Peace and Prosperity” on August 3:

„Europeans Are Waking Up to Government Covid Tyranny. Why Are We Still Asleep?“

„Tens of thousands of Germans marched through Berlin on Saturday, proclaiming a “Day of Freedom” and demanding an end to government-mandated face masks and “social distancing.” The UK and Netherlands also saw large protests against their governments’ tyrannical actions in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

According to media accounts, the Berlin protesters held signs reading “We are being forced to wear a muzzle,” “Natural defense instead of vaccination,” and “We are making noise because you are stealing our freedom!”“

Then Ron Paul responded to the Twitter message of the New York Times:

„The New York Times Tweeted that the masses of Berlin demonstrators were all “Nazis” and “conspiracy theorists.” Does the “paper of record” really want us to believe there were perhaps a million Nazis active in the streets of Berlin? Wouldn’t that be alarming?

The fact is, Europeans are realizing that their government-mandated lockdowns did little or nothing to protect them from the virus, while causing economic catastrophe and untold human suffering.“

Paul further refers to the fact that:

„Unfortunately, while the Europeans are waking up, Americans are still asleep as our freedoms continue to be trampled. While Europeans demand an end to government tyranny, here we see states with minuscule new deaths returning to lockdown. It is as if all the wannabe tyrants from mayors to governors are finally realizing their secret dreams of ruling by decree. Their dreams are our nightmares!

(…)

It is not as if the “experts” are even looking into treatments for the viral infection. Doctors who report their own successful experience treating Covid patients with hydroxychloroquine, for example, are ridiculed, censored, and even fired from their jobs. The rush to silence “America’s Frontline Doctors” last week and to disappear their video down the memory hole should terrify anybody who still believes in free speech.

No, they say, we must keep locked down and masked until we have a vaccine. The US government is dumping billions into a vaccine that may be less than 60 percent effective to prevent a virus that has something like a 99.8 percent survival rate. What kind of math is that?“

And adds this question:

„How many may be harmed more by the vaccine than helped? We’ll probably never know because the US government has just granted big pharma immunity from liability claims if the vaccine produces damaging side effects.

They keep moving the goal posts to keep us terrified and isolated. First it was body counts and then “cases.” The numbers have been so wildly off that it’s hard to trust any reporting. People are getting angry. They are confused. They are facing an economic depression of historic proportions. But worst of all, they are watching as Leviathan government snatches every last bit of freedom.

Ron Paul ends his article with a triple “Three cheers for the Europeans! Let’s hope America wakes up soon!”

With his impeccable biography, Ron Paul, a political veteran and opponent of the hawks in the US Congress, is above suspicion as a “conspiracy theorist”. His son Rand Paul, also a doctor and politician, continues his father’s political work as senator from Kentucky.

Ron Paul’s farewell speech on November 14, 2012 is a reckoning with the post-war imperial policy of the USA, whose wars have caused some 20 million deaths, and a reverberating appeal for peace.

Here’s an extract:

„What a wonderful world it would be if everyone accepted the simple moral premise of rejecting all acts of aggression. The retort to such a suggestion is always: it’s too simplistic, too idealistic, impractical, naïve, utopian, dangerous, and unrealistic to strive for such an ideal.

The answer to that is that for thousands of years the acceptance of government force, to rule over the people, at the sacrifice of liberty, was considered moral and the only available option for achieving peace and prosperity.

What could be more utopian than that myth — considering the results especially looking at the state sponsored killing, by nearly every government during the 20th Century, estimated to be in the hundreds of millions. It’s time to reconsider this grant of authority to the state.“

The last sentence is more relevant than ever!
