Lockdown & Loss of Freedom – Why the Sinister Silence from the Media?

Lockdown & Loss of Freedom – Why the Sinister Silence from the Media?

Comment: 

Clearly, the mainstream media in both the UK and the USA has bought into the Government(s) message, which is that we’re all obeying the scientists/medical experts.  On other threads, we’ve discussed the fact that not all scientists and doctors agree but those who don’t agree are kept well away from the microphones and TV studios.  We are getting one message only from people programmed to repeat it and not question it.  Given the examples in the Tucker Carlson video above, which reflect what is happening here in the UK, we need to find a way of challenging the silence of the mainstream media which is, surely, sinister by any standard.  That no-one is questioning the loss of our freedoms, in this unique situation, is definitely sinister.  

Remember, this is primarily a religious question – as is everything to do with human life, in fact.  If there is no-one in the media questioning the danger of the nation (if not the entire world) sleep-walking into totalitarianism, then our churches will be closed forever. And there will be no need to speculate on whether we are now suffering a chastisement – it will be indisputably the case.   

The opportunity for the voice of the public to be heard is limited, but it is possible to make some level of protest through, for example, certain radio programmes.  The LBC (Leading the British Conversation) phone-in shows allow members of the public to broadcast their views.  Click here and then check out the shows, pick the one you think might be worth a  try, and dial the number as soon as possible after the show goes on air. 

Thus, you may do some simple Catholic Action by telephone, using, perhaps some of the facts on our other threads, to make a point – notably The Truth About The Lockdown

Entrust your efforts to Our Lady, in this her special month, and who knows what good might come of it.  Whatever, it’s worth reflecting on the strange phenomenon of a media wholly silent on the loss of our civil liberties, when we would normally expect them to be interrogating politicians, doctors and the police to hold them to account for their role in instituting and applying the draconian measures designed to keep us in our homes – perhaps indefinitely.

    Dear Editor,
    It is noticeable that with all the non essential activities which are shut down like Churches Barbers and GOLF, but some are vital. Near where we live we have an army firing range.
    They have been belting away all day at the rate of about £5 per live round.
    I wonder who makes the decisions???

      Patrick,

      We’d all like to know who makes the decisions.

      Today, for example, we’re told that the death rate is the highest yet in the UK, and that we are (I think) the second worst country in Europe for deaths – yet, apparently on Sunday Boris is to announce the first steps in easing the lockdown. Er… And the logic is?

      Put that together with the fact that the same “Professor” who told us the lockdown was a must, didn’t think it was a “must” for him and his married girlfriend. On so many levels that “Professor” is just SO dishonest.

      Yet, he’s not going to have a visit from the police. Not like Nigel Farage, or even thee or me were WE to break the rules. Nope. He’s fine and dandy. Probably has a nice severance pay package (although he’ll possibly be brought back into the fold quietly, without any fuss, when this all blows over.)

      It would be so easy, Patrick, to become a cynic. Resist the temptation…

    This post at Gloria TV is very interesting indeed – saying the whole thing is a media hoax
    https://gloria.tv/post/1GJPUnWJLLff1YB3hgNcCZRK1

    It gives facts and figures which are very interesting indeed.

    I haven’t watched this one yet but the video and graph looks very informative

      Lily,

      I’m looking forward to studying those two links as soon as possible. Many thanks for posting them – at a quick glance they each look to be very revealing.

      Lily,

      The second video is especially helpful for skeptics and scoffers: it shows how this “pandemic” is just one cog in a large wheel. You have to wonder how many beans have to be spilled before a critical mass of the population catches on.

        RCA Victor,

        Yes, I think so, too.

        I also just found this article by Peter Hitchens – it’s not recent, he wrote it in March but it makes very interesting reading because of that!

        The stuff at the end about other experts is really useful. I was heartened by his comments that a lot of people actually are sceptical – in my experience, most people seem to be going along with the lockdown and believing the government. I hope he’s right. Or it could be that they’re more independent minded in England, where he lives.
