    Default Tens of Thousands Protest Covid-19 Restrictions in London

    They're fed up in London. The anti-mask, anti-shutdown, anti-social distancing movement is growing.

    So I presume you have made a habit of going out in public maskless, attending crowded events, and standing as close as possible to others?

    This is a quote from someone on this forum I can't recall who but it's appropriate here.

    "There are a whole lot of truly ignorant uneducated and often enough just plain stupid people included in the general population. They don't have the equipment it takes to think critically and never will, very easy prey"

    This is London, people. Not exactly a Tory heartland. It's Tory policy what's being protested here. That's precisely what is interesting about this gathering, its size, and locale.

    Sadly, Some of those people will die from COVID-19. Even sadder is some of them will be responsible for infecting and killing their loved ones. Bigly sad.

    I think it curious that this isn't a collection of drunken right wing yobs waving St. George flags and howling about liberty.

    These folks would appear to be ordinary Londoners protesting the Covid rules of Boris Johnson's Tory government. En masse.

    The reason this is curious, to me at least, is that the Covid 19 restriction protesters here in the US tend to be (it seems to me) to be fundamentalist Christians, Q-types, and red ballcap wearing flag wavers. And there is nothing like tens of thousands of them at any street protest. Maybe a couple hundred max.

    Dog whistles are higher pitched than applause, I agree. Even when they are intended to be audible not just to dogs.

    Piers Corbyn was a featured speaker at the rally. That would seem to remove any doubt that there isn't a hard-Left libertarian element at play in protesting these restrictions. True?

    WTF are you bleating about? These are a bunch of brain dead Covid-19 conspiracy theory idiots, anti-vaxxers, and 5G morons. Cheering this on is tantamount to cheering on Flat Earthers.
    Only a jack*** would hold this up as proof of anything.

    The Reptilian Elite

    Everett
    They are among us. Blood-drinking, flesh-eating, shape-shifting extraterrestrial reptilian humanoids with only one objective in their cold-blooded little heads: to enslave the human race. They are our leaders, our corporate executives, our beloved Oscar-winning actors and Grammy-winning singers, and they're responsible for the Holocaust, the Oklahoma City bombings and the 9/11 attacks ... at least according to former BBC sports reporter David Icke, who became the poster human for the theory in 1998 after publishing his first book, The Biggest Secret, which contained interviews with two Brits who claimed members of the royal family are nothing more than reptiles with crowns. (Picture Dracula meets Swamp Thing).
    The conspiracy theorist and New Age philosopher, who wore only turquoise for a time and insisted on being called Son of God-Head, says these "Annunaki" (the reptiles) have controlled humankind since ancient times; they count among their number Queen Elizabeth, George W. Bush, Henry Kissinger, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Bob Hope. Encroaching on other conspiracy theorists' territory, Icke even claims that the lizards are behind secret societies like the Freemasons and the Illuminati. Since earning the dubious title of "paranoid of the decade" in the late 1990s, Icke has written several books on the topic, including his latest work, The David Icke Guide to the Global Conspiracy, while operating his own website — complete with merchandise and advertisements.

    Re. SB #19
    Hard left Libertarian? Nah. It's interesting that SB tries to put this protest into a political pigeon-hole, but these protesters are not on the political spectrum. They are in that grey area, just to one side of the spectrum, that we call La La Land.

    Piers Corbyn, climate change denier, was arrested back in May while claiming 5G worsens coronavirus symptoms and attacking the principle of vaccination.
    This time he's protesting that Coronavirus is a hoax?

    David Icke claims - that an inter-dimensional race of reptilian beings called the Archons (or Anunnaki) have hijacked the earth, and that a genetically modified human–Archon hybrid race of shape-shifting reptilians known as the Babylonian Brotherhood, the Illuminati, or the "elite", manipulate global events to help keep humans in constant fear.

    He also claims - many prominent public figures belong to the Babylonian Brotherhood and are propelling humanity toward an Orwellian global fascist state, or New World Order, a post-truth era where freedom of speech is ended.

    Oh wait - with the rise of Putin and Trump - RW attacks on the media - "global fascist state, or New World Order, a post-truth era where freedom of speech is ended" sounds about right. What do you think SB?

    You got to wonder how all of those operating theatre staff who have been wearing masks for all their working lives are not poisoned by those toxins a lack of oxygen and suppressed immune systems.

    Prezactly!

    And the lowest infection rate overall in New York State (former infection hotspot) are frontline responders, EMTs, Doctors, Nurses, etc. And what do they all have in common, they all wear a mask.

    Don't know, don't care, mostly don't bother to look or respond any more - could be a real a real rusbot for all I know. It's in my troll collection.
    The responses give me a good idea of the gist of the OP, and save me the effort of getting all annoyed, and feeling like I have to respond to whatever dross it posted .

    I say he is some entitled trust fund brat, an underachieving juice monkey that has issues of abandonment and inferiority related to a continual string disappointments he has visited upon his father.
