The Covid-1984 Lockdowns have never been about medicine. They’ve always been about population control. Already, we’re seeing the lockdowns mutate into the more virulent disease of Socialism….
Mink virus might jeopardise vaccines
By BBC Environment correspondent Helen Briggs, 5 Nov 2020
More than 50 million mink a year are bred for their fur, mainly in China, Denmark, the Netherlands and Poland. Outbreaks have been reported in fur farms in the Netherlands, Denmark, Spain, Sweden and the US, and millions of animals have had to be culled.
Denmark will cull all its mink – as many as 17 million – after a mutated form of coronavirus that can spread to humans was found on mink farms.
Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said the mutated virus posed a “risk to the effectiveness” of a future Covid-19 vaccine.
What a bald-faced lie.
Denmark is the world’s biggest producer of mink fur and its main export markets are China and Hong Kong.
The culling began late last month, after many mink cases were detected.
Before the announcement? Eh, we don’t need no stinkin’ government transparency!
Mink, like their close relatives ferrets, are known to be susceptible to coronavirus, and like humans, they can show a range of symptoms, from no signs of illness at all, to severe problems, such as pneumonia.
Mink become infected through catching the virus from humans. But genetic detective work has shown that in a small number of cases, in the Netherlands and now Denmark, the virus seems to have passed the other way, from mink to humans.
The big public health concern is that any mutation to the coronavirus as it passes between mink and humans might be enough to stop human vaccines working, if and when they become available. Some scientists are now calling for a complete ban on mink production, saying it impedes our response and recovery from the pandemic.
Whoa. We just blew past tinfoil-hat paranoia into six-foot-pool-noodle-hat paranoia. Minks “might be” incubating a variant of Coof capable of defeating a vaccine that doesn’t even exist yet, thus all captive minks must be eradicated AND all their farmers put out of business PERMANENTLY?
What’s REALLY going on?
PETA Calls For Emergency Fur-Farm Shutdown Because of COVID-19 Outbreak
9 October 2020
First place I looked. PETA has hated the use of animals for fur since its beginning.
PETA warned Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers in April of the prospect of an outbreak of COVID-19 on Wisconsin mink farms and is now renewing its call to close all fur farms immediately following a confirmed outbreak in the state and the deaths of at least 8,000 minks on farms in Utah because of the disease—which the animals contracted from workers. PETA says that the shutdown is necessary to protect both humans and other animals. Wisconsin is the largest mink fur–producing state in the U.S., with more than 50 mink factory farms that produce over 1 million pelts per year, representing more than a third of the annual national total, which is thankfully fast declining as designers and consumers reject fur. PETA is also reiterating its offer to help retrain employees to grow snap beans, sweet corn, cranberries, cucumbers, carrots, cabbage, and other crops found in the state—and we’ll even help pay for the start-up seeds.
I wonder who finances that retraining? While PETA members do tend to be hoes, I don’t mean agriculture.
Below, please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk:
“PETA is calling on Wisconsin officials to follow the lead of France, the Netherlands, and Poland [and Denmark] by shutting down the state’s filthy fur farms now. COVID-19 is a deadly airborne and contact disease that spreads from cage to cage, and no one, including minks, deserves to die from it—and animals definitely don’t deserve to live in filth and be gassed, bludgeoned, or skinned for hideous garments that no one wants anymore.
Who would ever have guessed that the proper response to a temporary health crisis would be permanently enacting the Utopian Socialist agenda?
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear,” and the group opposes speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview.
I proudly identify as both a human supremacist and well-fed member of People Eating Tasty Animals.
