At one point I walked outside to join others in the backyard and they were whispering about my husband and I being “Trump supporters.” They shut up when they saw me and I said, “Damn, that reminds me. I forgot my MAGA hat!”

My husband’s brother, who is hosting the wedding, got Covid last spring and he told me a half-hour story about his battle with it at the kitchen table last night, as if he were a mythological figure. He almost died, actually. Sick for a month.

And I just looked at him and told him his brother—my husband—got it and was able to go back to work in three days after I scored him Ivermectin. And I swear to God, the whole table had like a thick fog come over their eyes and there was just silence. And the mood was that me and my husband were some kind of crazy renegades.

Don’t you think they would have been thrilled for my husband? That he got well!? That he survived? Or interested in how we did it? No, they’re just willing to die. This family, guys, this family is more brainwashed than any group of people that I’ve come across. It’s almost palpable, it’s almost like I can see the thin veils over their heads. It’s just so fricking sad.

And the thing is, they’re so smug. They think they’re soooo right, and soooo smart and so much more enlightened. It’s just unbelievable. You can’t red-pill these people because whenever truth enters the room, they literally zone out. They become zombies.

I’ve never seen anything like it.

I can’t wait to get the hell out of here.

Quite frankly.

There is no longer any point of trying to red pill people who aren't ready to ask questions.

If they are brain washed. They are being that way to PROTECT their own mindset.

That's a natural defense to human beings.

You cannot defeat this defense. It's there for a reason.

In fact... people will become more interested in hearing what you have to say when you don't argue with them at all.

If they tell you a belief that is clearly stupid. Just look at them, smile and say ok.

That silent treatment is far more powerful then you think.

Higher intelligent people should not speak time arguing with those who are not informed.

I really wasn’t trying to red-pill. I know better with this group. It’s hopeless. But since we were at the table talking about Covid, I wanted to share what happened with my husband.

They could have cared less. They wear their Covid survival stories like a badge.

So long as they already know at least some of what you believe? When the big stuff goes down they will know who to turn to. Perhaps the only person they can trust to have some clue what the hell is going on. That time WILL come. That's a lot of why I post so much info on FB - so that later on people will remember....and then we can talk. You know, when they aren't stark raving mad media zombies ;-)

If you are like me, all the people who need to see the posts on FB, have turned off your posts. I haven't turned off their posts, but I guess since I comment to their posts, they not only have mine turned off, they have me selected so I don't see theirs :) (they are still listed as FB "friends", but obviously have selected me to not see anything they post, or see anything I post)

For the Republicans/conservatives....I know they're still out there reading because when I see these people in real life they tell me to PLEASE keep posting, and when I get banned they send messages asking. I kinda figure at this point? What I am posting is for people who WANT to know (I only redpill liberals in person. Not so much online. Too easy for them to escape online) :P

I had wondered because a lot of people read for the better part of a year without responding in any way. I even formed some messaging and text patriot groups for those times when patriots are suspended from FB. We gather info, share it, and send it out. Many have been reading this stuff going back all the way to the beginning of Q. Before that I had not much use for stupid FB

There will come a time very soon when they wake up in horror as they face reality. At least they'll know you were speaking truth.

I expect to swallow many "I told you so's" as I patiently answer questions without judgement. Literally everyone in my family knows how I feel but chose to take the jab, and I pray there is a cure. It's horrifying to imagine seeing them perish one by one. I hope there is a cure to this poison.

My dad always listens to me, but now he has hospital GF and refuse to listen to me when it comes to covid (got him to invest in gme tho) because shes running around making it sound like its the black plague running around

'Hurr durr we dont have room for more patients you are so dangerous for spouting this misinformation about covid'

I just ask if they dont have room because EVERY room is occupied, or because they dont have enough people to operate all the rooms

-crickets-

'Billy please can we not argue for once'

Shes pleasant, just works in hospital so get the big brainwash directly injecting into her. And obviously anyone working at hospital is not gonna listen to people who dont work with medicine, because its not like I can find the information they pay thousands for at school, for free on the internet

Sadly, I've had to adopt this strategy as well. My father began talking about getting a booster shot, and my brother and his family are all jabbed (wife and daughter are medical), so I took it upon myself to try to educate them about what the INDEPENDENT medical community is saying, with links and references. My brother is a retired Lieutenant Commander from NAVAL INTELLIGENCE no less (retired about 20 years ago, but he thinks he still knows everything about everything), and both he and my father basically ridiculed me and told me to stop.

I'm reminded by the parable of the donkey and tiger...

35
thephantom1979 35 points ago +35 / -0

Yeah I don't really try to argue with family or friends about COVID. To each their own.

Because the real argument is simple.

Do we force people to take it or not.

If you are talking to family members about it. And they ask you.

For me..

I will tell my family and friends. If you FORCE it on everyone.

Then the BLOODSHED from it will be on you.

Most people understand those words.

SoMuchWinning45 7 points ago +7 / -0

Therein lies the worst problem. They want us in the camps, and they don't care who we are; sibling, parent, spouse, aunt, uncle, cousin. Along with all the other dark shit in my head, this is among the worst.

We unfortunately need to be prepared to walk away from every single person that wants us forcefully vaxx'd/dead. It can't matter if it's whomever you're married to, the people that created you, or the people that you created. You can't do shit if you're locked up or dead.

Naval Intelligence...retired about 20 years ago, but he thinks he still knows everything about everything...

I also retired from the Navy 20 years ago, and what's more, from the Intelligence Community 4 years ago from my post-Navy career, and I can tell you rn that I dont know shit about what they have been doing since then - technology and collection priorities change that fast. Your Bro wants to stay in the loop, but he cannot (need to know, no more security clearance, no more access to programs).

bcfromfl 17 points ago +17 / -0

I'm preparing myself for a possible inevitable confrontation with my brother, and what you said was actually part of my argument...in my head. He was so heavily indoctrinated with assumptions and beliefs about "who the good guys are" and "who the bad guys are," and questioning sources to the point he believes nothing...that the fact he has been out of the loop for so long isn't evidence enough for him that what he THOUGHT he once knew, no longer has relevance, and since he has no current sources, he might as well as be living under a rock.

I used to really look up to my older brother, but I've come to realize he is a prisoner of his own ego, and nowhere near as smart as he thinks he is. I hate saying that...

I find that liberals shut down when they know your not vaxed. Anything you say is immediately dismissed as nonsense.

I enjoy telling liberals, with a smile, that I got my full vax shots.
They then relax enough for some red pills. You can ask lots of questions to make them think.

Did your heart start beating strangely afterward?

I'm going to be tested for possible blood clots, because several friends had gotten clots. Have YOU been checked?

I have several vaxed friends that are getting cancer. I'm worried. Do you think the vax might cause cancers?

😀. They think you're one of them, so feel free to drop red pills.

I saw an office actor spend xmas away from her family bc they had covid. Sharing how they were decorating cookies from 10 ft apart. I was so sadden. As a mother there is no way Id be away from my kids. Id battle along side them, especially considering they were all fine. It really broke my heart the programming and the lack of conviction.

It is mental programming, done through the media by very carefully choosing words, inflections, pauses and facial expressions. Over time you can program humans.

I like it, I give it 7.5/10 = Great production quality, great actors, imaginitive scripts, often with a psychological aspect that dictates the pacing of the show (so more like ex machina, donnie darko or westworld, and less like indiana jones, dr who or face/off)

But then, I do like dark dramatic things. So take that for what it's worth.

2
Sunshines09 2 points ago +2 / -0

I really enjoyed it. Each episode is its own story (like a modern day twilight zone) and they chose a really weird one to start with so I highly recommend checking out season 3 episode 1 first. I would say it's thought provoking but definitely not a horror/scary show.

1
TheAwakened 1 point ago +1 / -0

I'm like you, not into dark stuff.

I like superhero movies, comedied, fantasy, cowboy and pirates and stuff like that

But black mirror is worth watching. Its something else, and they do it very well. It's not like a horror movie that leaves you creeped out, but it leaves you creeped out in an 'hmm interesting' way.

Definately worth the watch! Dont need to watch the whole thing either since every episode is a new story, with completely new characters (and actors)

What I want to know is how do some of us avoid that? I "woke up" after 9/11, but I already knew something was wrong with the world, There was a fakeness to everything.

I used to have a theory that was essentially The Matrix. I'd tell people that god was a computer programmer, and we're all in a warehouse somewhere wired into a bunch of computers, and this is all a big video game.

I suspect I'm not completely wrong about that, though I didn't truly believe it then, I just thought it sounded cool. We might not be connected to computers, but the real us is not this. Maybe that's ascending to a higher dimension, or going to heaven or however you'd like to think about it, but I don't think we're experiencing the full picture from here.

Throw in a Covid Crisis and we're talking many MORE hours. When I'd tell libs they would just keep on talking and not miss a beat. I would stop them and say "Did you hear what I said ?

Wasnt a single fucking human at that hospital except for me and the people working there

I decided I was fucking done with public healthcare (fucking waited 1 year for the surgery and then they go 'hurr durr reschedual and youre not up next we need to make new schedual'

My brother even complained (this last spring) that people were stating concerns about their civil rights being taken.

rooftoptendie 13 points ago +13 / -0

my guess is if it wasn't an 'oh shit' moment, then possibly someone tripped a 'trigger word' and sent them into a fugue state. The trigger word was probably 'ivermectin', but the DNCCP has trigger words and phrases and symbols embedded everywhere, some of them seemingly benign.

Like if a hypnotist says "every time you hear the word 'baseball' you will think you are a chicken." and then someone later says the word baseball. Watch how people in hypnotism videos get after their trigger word gets tripped. Their eyes and posture change, the way they move changes.

Maybe this is more similar to that.

My own brother is one just like this family you describe. He literally told me I was "grasping at straws" when I pointed out that you cannot eradicate a disease with an injection that does not kill the disease. That was AFTER he completely wrote off VAERS because some "bias checker" told him that OpenVaers is "right-leaning."

I told him he was projecting his own straw-grasping shortcoming onto me. I told him that I was firmly gripping a baseball bat, and I think he knows it.

Unfortunately, I do believe you are correct. And I can now say I tried everything to help him see the light. But...when someone's head is buried so very far up their ass as his, it is nigh impossible. I'll miss certain aspects of him, I admit.

I feel for you. It doesn't take very long in conversation to know who gets their "information" from the op-ed suit and tie on corporate news. I didn't trust corporations then, and I surely don't trust them now. Nothing has changed. Not sure what happened to half the people that I used to share this notion with.

We have close family friends who invited us in early summer to one of their sons' wedding scheduled for next month (October). Now mind you, the entire family is WOKE to high heaven...which has never been an issue between my conservative wife and myself and them...until apparently now. The bride and groom, on their website, have been posting more and more passive-aggressive hints that the "unvaccinated" should likely plan NOT to attend the wedding nor any associated activities.

NOT a problem -- frees up an entire weekend, several hundred dollars in lodging fees for us....and sadly for the woke couple to be, a $100 bill. My wife is increasingly sad because we are two out of a seeming majority of jabbed sheep in a VERY blue part of an arguably blue state...but I keep telling her to hold the line. It's getting harder for her....but I'm more determined than ever.

My cousins are the same way. On Labor Day we got together and they’re talking about how excited they are to get their booster. Rattling off every left wing talking point on how the vax is good for you. I lied and said I got it. They asked about my senior parents. I said they got it too. They didn’t. They both had Covid and say they have antibodies. They’re based. One of my younger cousin (23) won’t get the vax and they were all over him about it. He just walked away. The sad thing is is these are highly educated people. One of them is an Annapolis Naval Academy grad. He was in the Navy for years then retired and ran a f-ing nuclear plant. I totally lost respect for him.

damn so now your younger cousin thinks he's alone and his family hate him. I hope you reached out privately after and told him you lied and support him...

Jenmon 1 point ago +1 / -0

They were more concerned for for him, no hate. He didn’t give a shit what they said to him with their talking points so there was no need to come to his rescue. He just had a smirk on his face and walked away. The conversation was over.

What ARE their talking points?

How are people actually arguing for this absurdly, unambiguously failed vaccine? There are no success stories anywhere. It’s like arguing that 2+2 = mayonnaise.

Jenmon 1 point ago +1 / -0

It’s approved by the FDA, no longer emergency use only. If you get Covid with vax, it’s mild. There are risks with all vaccines…

“Fails massively everywhere it’s been tried” seems to put lie to all those appeals-to-(lying, compromised)-authority pretty easily.

But hey, Thalidomide was the hotness for a while, so maybe the gullible idiots just need piles more human carnage in their faces before they start to get a hint that “science” was never intended to be a synonym for “unquestioning submission to lunatic tyranny.” 🤷‍♂️

When I was on the hill, some Moonies came in to lobby about a bill. They were normal, friendly and seemed perfectly sane. Close to the end, I asked them about Reverend Moon's tax problems. In front of my eyes, their eyes went blank and dead and their expressions completely frozen. No zombies in those days, but they were assuredly an early model. They didn't utter another word. Just got up and left, leaving me with my mouth hanging open and my office mate laughing hysterically.

I’ve not only experienced this w my own family, I’ve experienced this with close family friends that were never like this. It’s so sad to see them dismiss hard cold facts just because it doesn’t come from the MSM. Like a video, for example, a hearing or something (primary source) as “Fake News” and rely on what the “fact checkers” or Google say about it. It’s a primary source! That’s what you use to fact check. Not the other way around. The cognitive dissonance is unbelievable!

We're with you in spirit. The spirit of MAGA!

We're all experiencing this, and when it's family, it hurts. Shame on them for talking about you, behind your back. You went to celebrate unselfishly someone else, with family. Make time asap with a like mind and enjoy your conversation.

I'm sorry that this happened at such a place, to be a beautiful time.

Again, shame on them. They behaved badly.

rooftoptendie 5 points ago +5 / -0

I sometimes will get caught talking about someone behind their back... but then if I get caught, I just directly tell them what I was saying behind their back so they can join in the conversation. Just say shit to people's faces. You don't have to be rude about it.

My cousin got the shot. Then they came over for a visit, and it was a bit awkward when they walked in because our home is a non-vaxxed home. So I just immediately cut the ice and asked them, "Did you get the Gates shot?"

yes, they say.

So I rush over and put my hand against their forehead, say "are you okay? running a fever? Any tachychardia? Your skin looks flushed. Did you get the bells palsy?" and kind of make a joke out of it.

Instantly melted all the tension. People respect you more if you are direct and kind and willing to be easygoing.

so like "oh we were just talking about you crazy trumpers. I suppose you didn't get the shot, do you have your horse-paste? You really think that will work?" if done with a casual and accepting attitude, is way way better than just downcast glances and shamed silences.

Just fess up if you talked about someone behind their back. If done right, people will forgive you. Most people tend to react well to blunt honesty if your delivery is charming.

my in-laws...mostly all medical fields...raving lunatics about the vaxx. Used to talk to SILs a couple times a week - now maybe once a month. the conversations are strained - one of them is sick but of course its not from the vaxx. they had already started distancing from us because we were Trump supporters.

I know what you are talking about. I've experienced a lot of that from the 'blue-no-matter-who' crowd. I wonder what goes on in their heads. Is it confusion and discomfort mixed with hate and disgust? That's what it seems like sometimes. Or, in their heads are they asking themselves if they have been fooled?

Don't worry, at least you've said your piece, that should wake some people up eventually. If you told your story to like 30 people, at least 5 will wake up. If you told it to like 10, then 1 maybe 2 will wake up.

But yes, they are truly brainwashed to the point where they will die if they have to, to support the main narrative cuz "Fuck DRUMPF! HA THERE!" and it's truly sad.

Trying to play nice though because I don't want to be the reason for more stress between my fiance and his family

Qldpat31 4 points ago +4 / -0

I've experienced similar and it never works out the way you want it to because they suffer belief bias. (We all do to an extent). They become more resolute in their beliefs the more you throw information at them especially if it contradicts what they already think is true. The problem is what they believe is true to them and what you believe is true to you. Throwing facts at them just won't work at this point. The only thing that works in this situation is having the understanding that this is how they function and by asking them questions to prompt further investigation on their part.
