Woke academic’s ‘COVID Amnesty’ proposal causes outrage

Emily Oster, an economist at Brown University, implored people who suffered under COVID policies in the US to call a truce.

Oster’s call to forgive and forget COVID crimes was published in The Atlantic, a leftist, pro-jab legacy media magazine publication.

‘Moving on is crucial now, because the pandemic created many problems that we still need to solve,’ wrote Oster. ‘We have to put these fights aside and declare a pandemic amnesty.’

‘The people who got it right, for whatever reason, may want to gloat. Those who got it wrong, for whatever reason, may feel defensive and retrench into a position that doesn’t accord with the facts. All of this gloating and defensiveness continues to gobble up a lot of social energy and to drive the culture wars, especially on the internet. These discussions are heated, unpleasant and, ultimately, unproductive. In the face of so much uncertainty, getting something right had a hefty element of luck. And, similarly, getting something wrong wasn’t a moral failing. Treating pandemic choices as a scorecard on which some people racked up more points than others is preventing us from moving forward.’

Many people however, did not buy it, with ‘COVID Amnesty’ trending on Twitter as folks, mainly unjabbed as well as pro-freedom activists, vented their frustration and refused to simply ‘forgive and forget’.

The ‘COVID Amnesty’ theory is yet to hit in New Zealand, but is likely to experience the same pushback as it has in the United States.

  1. I suppose the god squad will be activated by the media and out soon preaching ‘turn the other cheek’ and other such rubbish. Such people are enablers of what has happened and what will continue to happen until the perpetrators of criminal behaviour are stopped in their tracks, not forgiven. We know who the crooks in positions of authority are and what they did. We know that no government could have done what they did without the help of the media and the police. We also remember the dancers of death now appearing online as whistleblowers, sobbing their hypocritical little hearts out.
    Go away you lot. You had the opportunity to whistleblow for two years. You knew what was happening. You were part of it. You took the IMF money and you watched people die. Young, healthy people. Children.
    Yet you still think you will escape the consequences of your actions.
    Well I’ve got news for you and it’s all bad.

    • I agree with most of your sentiments but be careful calling people the God squad.

      Many Christians tried to warn others what was happening, many haven’t taken the jab. Whether people want to believe it or not, a lot of what has happened is foretold in the bible.

  2. The Nazi’s used their biologists (“trust the science”) to determine that the Jews were “the Untermensch”. Then the “science” was used as justification to round up the Jews into Ghettos and then into concentration camps before their eventual genocide. Some people on the hard left suggested that people who refuse to take the “vaccine” should have been rounded up and put into camps (this was stated in Australia and the USA upon social media). I cannot believe how quickly the lessons of WW2 have been forgotten. The “science” determined that the vaccine was “safe and effective”. According to the VAERS database, excess mortality noted by life insurance companies in many countries (10% to 30% excess mortality increase), other data recorded by governments independent of VAERS, morticians, and doctors the vaccine is neither safe nor effective. Individual sovereignty has been ignored as if, in our society, the individual is not respected at all for their wishes or views: Our voice and intent in our societies, 2000 years after Lord Jesus walked the Earth, carries no weight. Our societies ignore us!

    There can be no amnesty: What has happened is a crime against humanity and, in addition, the Nuremberg code of 1947 states that any medical treatment shall be via informed consent. There shall be no coercion and up until the last moment the person can say “No”. We were coerced strongly with either the choice to take the vaccine or lose our jobs and, therefore, starve to death. This is the reality of the societies that we now live in.

  3. Never forget: ALL parties in parliament have forced you to give up your freedom and autonomy of body! ALL OF THEM!
    Hell hath no fury like mothers scorned!

    • EXACTLY what happened to my body my choice? And no, choosing to get a jab or lose your job isn’t a choice, it’s blackmail, coercion, duress and it’s WRONG. Furthermore mandatory jabs weren’t part of employment contracts for most people, so it’s also illegal.

  4. Bit of a nonsense really, in fact quite insulting to propose – sorry we stuffed up but let’s all get over it and move on. These people have no shame whatsoever, no compassion and no backbone to admit they were causing so much pain to innocent people. The term we’re looking for is – “I’m sorry.” Now how hard was that..?

    • Exactly. How hard can it be to admit they were wrong and the way they treated people wasn’t justified? Most people these days are narcissists and they cannot ever admit they were wrong. I was treated so badly by some family members and all I want is an apology, to be blue to get on my life and to be left the F**k alone to look after myself and my family.

  5. There will be no accountability in NZ. The media puppets will blame pfizer or Putin or something(thats why the push is on against “disinformation”)and the moronic sheep(90% of NZers) will swallow it hook line and sinker

  6. The biggest crime was denying people early treatment before vaccines were available, ivermectim worked but was prohibited to use. This was done do EUA,s could be issued for mRNA vaccines, tens of thousands died, Big Pharma made Billions, start building prisons now.

  7. No to amnesty, absolutely no. Nuremberg for the perpetrators and we are finding each and every last one of the perpetrators that are complicit in the suffering caused by this false pandemic. The last Nuremberg didn’t see all of the Cabal tried and here we are again. So we shall be searching all the caves and bunkers, under the ice, in the remote regions and all the nooks and crannies the snakes may slither to. Truth prevails

  8. A cruel evil wannabe tyrant is asking for an ‘amnesty’ without even a hint of an apology, regret or remorse.

    I don’t think that’s going to work somehow.

  9. Textbook establishment mouthpiece.

    If you look again you’ll note there isn’t even an actual apology in there, just a demand that we don’t hold them accountable.

    “It was all uncharted territory and we were super duper afraid so we locked you up, made your grandparents die alone, stopped you from having funerals and marriages, strapped masks onto your little kids, threatened you with mandates and took your jobs, demonised and vilified you at every turn and finally injected you with the most dangerous poison ever concocted. But now it’s time for us all to move on ????????

    Yeah, how about you f*ck off.

  10. ‘Amnesty-n- a general pardon of offences against a government.’
    This definition from the Cambridge english dictionary.
    Nothing to do with offences BY a government.
    Brown University is an Ivy League uni, along with Princeton, Yale, Harvard…do they not own a dictionary?

  11. […] Finally, international hoo-ha erupted in response to an article in The Atlantic promoting amnesty for those accountable for the Covid-19 response. Excellent kickback from around the world covered a full spectrum of arguments, landing on the same conclusion – this must never happen again. Some of our favourites have been Charles Eisenstein and Neil Oliver. […]
