For most of us, the COVID pandemic was over years ago. Yet there are some that still cling to the narrative that it is a deadly virus that can mutate again any day now. Over the past few weeks, many Minnesota news outlets have insisted on writing about this virus – so we will too.
On August 1st, KSTP wrote a story about how “COVID cases are increasing in the metro area.” In their article, they claim that a report from the Minnesota Department of Health shows a 54% increase in “total viral load” from a new subvariant of the virus. Then, they quote a doctor who tells readers to carry a mask and get “up to date on your vaccine status.”
Another article comes from the left-wing StarTribune, which reveals that virus fearmonger Michael Osterholm has long COVID.
The old media makes their living off of fear-mongering, which is probably why they still write these articles. The people who are prone to fear are likely to generate the clicks and ad revenue they need to keep their operations afloat.
Because articles like this are written, a handful of schools and employers nationwide have (albeit, weak) justification to keep their COVID vaccine mandates in place. To them, it is about ensuring control on campus and in the workplace.
These articles are literally being used in an effort to suppress the health freedoms of American citizens.
So while most of us are ready to finally live our lives, the mainstream media and authoritarian medical elites will keep trying to drag us back into the COVID conversation. Unless it is to make fun of their efforts, we should not even give them the time of day.
