I’ve written before about the wry amusement Wellingtonians derive from the almost weekly protests at Parliament over this and that. No-one takes the slightest notice, specially the MPs. Sometimes a petition is presented and a sucker MP will draw the short straw to stand on the steps of Parliament, adopt a grave face, say a few words and accept the petition which to all intents and purposes is then filed in the rubbish bin.
The latest such protest has seen several thousand from across the land led by truck drivers, block the city streets bitching about vaccine mandates. The city is thus literally empty of people and cars as I write.
No-one should be forced to be vaccinated against their will but conversely when this lot get ill as many now will despite Jacinda’s 1990 elimination brilliance, they must bear the price re their mandate prohibitions, namely not having the right to infect others. I have yet to read a coherent argument against vaccines, but there actually is one.
The excellent thing about this anti-vaccine protest is it identifies no-hopers, many of whom in the next few months will become infected and some will die.
In numerous ways halfwits are a huge cost on society thus any action which reduces their numbers is a huge win for the rest of us. They should be actively encouraged to stage more mass protests everywhere for the greater good of society.
I’m happy to do my bit and chip in $10,000 for them to stage kissing contests with one another to hurry things along. That would constitute doing God’s work and a more effective albeit different elimination strategy than the nonsensical one claimed by the government two years back.
Finally, note this. An ethnic study of anti-vacciners in Britain shows the highest percentage are blacks of West Indian origin followed closely by Brits of Pakistan origin. No surprise to me.
Why? Because a study a year back showed the most likely to be in prison, lowest income and least educated were Brits of Caribbean origin, again followed closely by Brits of Pakistan origin.
But the highest performing ethnic group on all three counts, including Anglo-Saxons, were Brits of Indian origin. Currently they dominate the Cabinet and Boris’s likely successor will be an Anglo-Indian. That success reflects cultural values in a respect for education and industry.
To summarise, basically anti-vacciners are measurably dumb buggers. The current mob at Parliament are in the standard New Zealand fashion, simply copying their brothers in dimness, namely Canadian truck drivers.
Long distant truck driving is an unpleasant low paid job, it’s only redeeming feature being in providing employment for the intellectually challenged. But they’re the very last group we want calling the shots on anything at all.
