The Coronavirus Experts Were Wrong, Now They Need Scapegoats

The problem isn’t just the China Virus. It’s that we adopted the China Model to fight it.

Public health experts adopted China’s draconian lockdowns without knowing how well they really worked and in a country that, fortunately, lacks the power to truly enforce them.

China’s deceptiveness and lack of transparency meant that we did not know how well anything that the Communist dictatorship did to battle the virus that it spawned actually worked. Despite that, our public health experts, and those of most free countries, adopted the China Model.

We don’t know how well the China Model worked for the People’s Republic of China, but it failed in every free country that tried it. Lockdowns eventually gave way to reopenings and new waves of infection. This was always going to happen because not even the more socialist European countries have the police state or the compliant populations of a Communist dictatorship.

Desperate, the public health experts adopted China’s compulsive mask wearing, a cultural practice that predates the virus, as if wearing a few flimsy scraps of fiber would fix everything.

It hadn’t and it didn’t.

But by then the public health experts and the media that had touted them were moving fully into the scapegoat portion of the crisis. The China Model had failed, all that was left was shifting the blame to more conservative and traditional populations, and away from the cultural elites.

In New York City that meant falsely blaming Chassidic Jews for the second wave. From Maine to San Francisco, Democrat leaders and their media blamed conservative Christian gatherings. Their national counterparts loudly blamed President Trump for not wearing a mask all the time.

A New York Times headline captured the cynical broad spectrum cultural scapegoating with, "N.Y.C. Threatens Orthodox Jewish Areas on Virus, but Trump’s Impact Is Seen."

The uncomfortable truth was that the lockdowns had failed economically, socially, and medically.

Even blue states and cities were no longer able to carry the impossible economic burden much longer. The Black Lives Matter riots and the onset of summer broke the #StayHome taboos, and medically, the lockdowns had been useless efforts to meet a fake crisis of hospital overflows.

America, like too many other countries, put the experts in charge and they failed. Miserably.

Democrats claimed that they were superior because they were “listening to the science”. They weren’t listening to the science, which is not an oracle and does not give interviews. Instead, they were obeying a class of officials, some of them whom weren’t even medical professionals, who impressed elected officials and the public with statistical sleight of hand. And little else.

Mistakes were made, as the saying goes. Projections were built based on bad and incomplete data. Everyone followed the path of least resistance by doing what China had done. And everyone in the system, from the experts to the administrators to the politicians to the media, is complicit. That makes the massive error the world has been living under too big to fail.

This is the problem with "experts". There are no infallible people, there are only people. We carry biases, beliefs, confidence, assumptions and concepts. Most of them are flawed. When you make a decision for yourself and you screw up, you and a small group around you may be harmed. When you are suddenly elevated to the level of "expert" the screwed up decisions you make impact thousands, if not millions. That's the problem with the marxist belief system, they believe that efficiency comes from a cohort of experts that make all decisions for the masses. Sorry I would prefer decisions by the many as opposed to decisions by the few.

The problem is that the "experts" who wind up in government who have control over these kinds of things are all socio/psycho-paths. A normal human being, in a normal rational world, would not only feel bad and guilty for making such grossly incompetent decisions and feel shame over it, but their careers would be negatively impacted by such failures. In the government world, not only do they not appear to care, moving from one cluster fark to another, but the government system rewards them for failure with even greater levels of belief in their abilities and with more power.

Damn, you mean to tell me that a community that likes to congregate in packs and defy covid-19 guidelines could possibly have infection breakouts?

Nuh, Jew hating NYC just needs someone to blame...just like Israel:
