The Great Measles Scare of 2019

Hey! Does anyone remember the Great Measles Scare of… 2019! That’s right–just a single year before the total COVID freak-out.

In California, UCLA and Cal State LA both required quarantine for students who couldn’t prove they’d been vaccinated for measles. One UCLA student came down with measles. One. But the state of California panicked (https://leeduigon.com/2019/04/26/the-measles-panic/)

Over in New York City, judges imposed a “mandatory” measles vaccine. Several communities refused to obey. Mayor “DeBlasio” (real name: Warren Wilhelm) threatened to close down synagogues–permanently!–unless he got his way. But nothing came of that.

Nationwide, in a population of over 300 million, there were 555 (!) cases of measles.

Because measles has long been a common childhood disease that few people had any reason to take seriously, governments largely failed to whip up a measles panic. They had to wait for King COVID to come along: then they could seize the power that they wanted. It worked because COVID is new and people were deathly afraid of it.

And that was the last we heard of the measles epidemic.

Meanwhile, we have never been told why we have to treat COVID as the most fearsome disease ever encountered, fully justifying the shut-down of whole national economies and all sorts of draconian restrictions laid upon us to fight it.

We are still waiting for that explanation. But then we aren’t quite sure where COVID came from and how it got loose, are we?

  1. People have also forgotten the 2018 flu non-scare, when almost everyone had some strain of flu, including the 3-week flu (aka Influenza B) which I and several of my friends had, and 80,000 people died — a figure that did NOT include people who died of something else but may have had some flu germs somewhere in their systems.

    1. They’re kind of forcing us to think that way, although we can’t deny that people have died of COVID. But because they’ve finagled the figures so much, we have no firm idea how many.

    2. There are really deaths from the disease. I lost a relative to it and three acquaintances have died. These are real, not just exaggerations or deaths from other causes. Up until people of my acquaintance starting turning up dead, I was very, very skeptical that there was anything to this, but it’s not only a matter of manipulating statistics. In my entire life, I have never lost anyone to a communicable disease until the last year.

      At this point, I am convinced that there is a highly contagious disease out there that is unpredictable and in some cases kills. This is terrible; on that most people would agree, but the measures which should be taken are another matter.

      My personal opinion is that no matter what, this will run its course and the overall numbers will probably be the same no matter what they do, unless they have an effective vaccine, and that is a matter upon which there is far from universal agreement.

      Again, as a matter of personal opinion, I think that masks are probably essential for food preparers, etc. but I doubt highly that they make much, if any difference, for casual contact and are essentially useless outdoors. I’ve seen people in their cars alone, wearing a mask, which is senseless.

      Are the vaccines effective? Are they safe? I don’t know, but does anyone actually know?

      I go back to my earlier point; do we actually have any affect on the course of this disease?

    3. People have died, but the “pandemic” itself has been highly exaggerated for political gain and to usurp our freedoms. The timing of it is also highly suspect.

  2. History may well look back on this time and call it a scamdemic. It seems all the 10’s of thousands of people who would get the influenza each year are all now counted as Covid-19 infected – so much for science.

    1. That’s because it fizzled out. They had to wait for King COVID to come along, to really get their hands around our throats.
