JUST ONE MORE OFFENSIVE WILL DO IT

By Pete Moore On October 27th, 2020

These lockdownistas are looking more like Great War generals every day. Just one more offensive and victory is at hand!

I didn’t know New Yorkers celebrated Christmas anyway. I thought they were all Godless Democrats who pretended to have a good time with their Festivus or Winterval thing. De Blasio needn’t worry. His kind won’t have much to celebrate for a long time.

Me? I’m persuaded that we really should listen to BBC presenters, so screw the rules I’m going to have a normal Christmas.

  1. I plan to visit people, over the weekend, on Thanksgiving, and over Christmas.

    And I’ll be wearing the mask much of the time.

    Just like those smart Taiwanese and Japanese do.

  2. *sighs* wonder how many times you have make that simple point phantom
    Its not getting through is it ?
    is it possible that ” ya can’t teach stoopid” ?
    fair summary ?

  3. I’m going to have a normal Christmas…

    So it’s your usual Iceland microwave Xmas meal for one then Pete ? 😉

  4. The people who whine the most about the lockdowns, including those here, are the ones who have made the lockdowns necessary.

    You could write a book about it. To be sold in the non-fiction horror section.

  5. colm,
    pete needs a thai bride, totally submissive and obedient ..
    cook for him , clean for him, wash his shirts, polish his nazi memorabilia

  6. Borat’s daughter might work

  7. If things continue as they have been doing over here it’s highly likely that the three children I have living away from home won’t be here for Christmas 🙁

  8. sad paul, but next year you’ll have three “living” children , and many more family Xmas’s
    those with attention-span-of-gnats don’t see that.
    Their worldview is all selfishness: me , me , me , just like Trump !
    That’s why the people have to vote out the toxic bastard
    He infects everything he touches .. a highly venomous snake and a danger to democracy

    “Twenty former U.S. attorneys — all of them Republicans — on Tuesday publicly called President Trump “a threat to the rule of law in our country,” and urged that he be replaced in November with his Democratic opponent, former vice president Joe Biden.

    Lets that sink in !

  9. Unfortunately logic doesn’t alleviate the sadness at such a scenario, Kurt.

  10. So it’s your usual Iceland microwave Xmas meal for one then Pete ?

    Can you metropolitans not even bother to type Christmas?

    pete needs a thai bride, totally submissive and obedient ..

    Shocking racism. I am utterly appalled. It’s this arrogant, casual racism which is the most hateful of all.

  11. Paul, I’m reminded of the saying that “the heart has reasons that reason knows not.” You’re a good Dad.

  12. no it doesn’t paul, but needs must,
    the sorrow is something we have to bear
    till we get out of this thing – Alive
    if we listened to the selfish , it would be like the spanish flu
    2nd and 3rd wave did the damage on that one , not the first wave
    here’s the stats from dublin/belfast

  13. This christmas will be very hard for me. This will be the first time both my girls won’t be here christmas morning, and I know I’ll cry and my heart will break they are flying on their own and maturing into wonderful young woman… but will I swell with pride my heart breaks not wanting to let go…..

  14. I plan to visit people, over the weekend, on Thanksgiving, and over Christmas.

    And I’ll be wearing the mask much of the time.

    Phantom, will you eat with them?

  15. As for family plans thanksgiving we always bail Monica and I will get a nice small turkey and deep fry it. We used to do it on the grill but tried deep frying it once I’ll never do it any other way. Christmas day is usually big family dinner at my sisters house…. that’s still up in the air.

  16. Shocking racism. I am utterly appalled. It’s this arrogant, casual racism which is the most hateful of all.

    oh dear, there’s me trying to wish you a bit of happiness mr.petem
    (colm sorry you were right , Iceland at Christmas it is then )

    and yes you would like a wife like that , as you spend considerable time telling us that on ATW., profiling what a good woman is, only trouble is you can’t get a white one to be like that who has her own mind .. Its tough , and so I suggested a thai or filipino
    you can thank me later when you figure it out 😉

  17. If its warm on Thanksgiving, and at times it can be, hanging out outdoors as much as possible is a real good idea.

  18. this Xmas ( too long to type the other way ) I’ll be cooking for my sweet folks
    who at 84 and 78 really can’t do much for themselves anymore – selah
    cooking is relaxing and fun ..
    I’ll bring along a dame to make it a 4 – ball and we’ll zoom or call relatives
    on the phone .. I’ll sneak a dinner out for my neighbour wrapped up with some pudding
    and a 1/2 bottle of something ( that my eyes catches on offer in a supermarket !)

    if I knew New Yorkers address ( where is he ? )
    I send him ruth dudley edwards latest book or independent articles in 2020 , and he’d have a wonderful time reading that 😉

  19. Phantom –

    Will you be eating with your friends on Thanksgiving and at Christmas?

  20. I actually typed Turkey meal at first then I thought that might exclude Vegans so I changed it to Christmas but thought that might offend non Christians so went with the more secular Xmas and ended up offending Pete 🙄

    Can a man not type anything nowadays without offending some drippy snowflake somewhere !!

  21. Colm –

    I’m not offended, I don’t have that gene, but the English language is feeling bruised. “Xmas” is an ugly, lazy word which denies the glory of our Christian inheritance. Its usage is more sad than anything.

  22. Can a man not type anything nowadays without offending some drippy snowflake somewhere !!

    Indeed Colm. When the time comes I really hope you have happy holidays.

    You’re a good Dad.

    Thank you Charles. I try my best, which isn’t always enough.

  23. Pete

    I actually agree with you. I hate the word Xmas too. Something that does unite us 😁

  24. I always hated ” Xmas” , a word which drips with disrespect.

    And don’t give me your ” Happy Holidays ” , either, a lesser slap in the face too.

    Say nothing if you’re gonna say that.

  25. Oh there you are Phantom.

    Are you looking forward to your Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with your friends?

  26. Yes I am.

    And I will travel as well.

  27. Xmas is fine by me , it’s just an abbreviation of Christmas
    What qualities do you most admire about Jesus petem
    Why do you refer to yourself as a Christian?
    I genuinely don’t see anything in your posts that would make me think of you as a Christian
    In name only like RINO . I had to google that a while back .
    Same to you pat
    You say you help drug addicts and then go after hunter Biden viciously
    CINO .. Christian in name only
    Christ loves you but hates the way you think
    He wants you to repent . How do I know it
    Because he said it all the time ..

  28. Can a man not type anything nowadays without offending some drippy snowflake somewhere !!

    Amen brother

  29. don’t mind Xmas Happy Holidays will not get you a friendly response in return…..

  30. Phantom –

    Well I’m glad you are looking forward to your Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners with your friends.

    Will you remove your mask to eat?

  31. Happy Xmas has always seemed lazy to me and happy holidays just ain’t my thing. For me it’s always been happy Christmas but should anyone want to use any of the terminology above, knock yourself out.

    I’m all about the freedom of speech and expression, me.

  32. “ Xmas” is an ugly, lazy word which denies the glory of our Christian inheritance”

    Nonsense. The word has been around since the 16th century. The “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word for Christ. This is a Christian term.

    I say “Christmas” personally but sometimes will type Xmas in the interests of brevity. I don’t really see the need to say happy holidays or anything like that as nowadays Christmas is a secular holiday as well as a religious one. And anyway a lot of religious people prefer that.

  33. Pete

    Stop.

    I will follow the advice of Dr. Fauci, you are free to continue down the path of pointless argument- the type of blogging face nappy argumentativeness that has made the UK and US such poor performers in dealing with this virus.

  34. which advice from Fauci….? it tends to change….

  35. I’ve heard that explanation, Frank, but I’ve never been convinced by it. I understand the Chi-Rho, but I’m not convinced that people use Xmas in religious homage. Its use today is almost always ugly and lazy.

  36. but Phantom and all of you however you do it…. celebrate.

  37. As the understanding of the new virus has changed, Fauci has changed his advice and comments.

    What should he have done?

  38. “ I’m not convinced that people use Xmas in religious homage.”

    Agreed but the same is true of Christmas.

  39. Phantom –

    I’m just wondering if you will remove your mask when you eat with friends. It’s a perfectly innocent question. Indulge my child-like wonder. Will you?

  40. Happy Kwanzaa everyone 😉

  41. That’s the ultimate fake holiday

    Even more fake than Festivus

  42. yes but saying that can get you labeled a racist….

  43. The sacred history of Festivus, which should have been a paid ATW Holiday years ago

    Long live Jerry Stiller

    There’s nothing smart about wearing masks given that there are no studies to show that they work, and there’s certainly nothing smart about taking the advice of “an asshole”. Oh yes – the inventor of the PCR test which absolutely cannot be used as a diagnostic of a virus YET IS, called Fauci an asshole

    As for masks, we all know that masks work – right? We all know that, don’t we?

    An Open Letter to Robert Redfield, Director of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention

    I made it a point to watch you after seeing Wisconsin’s Chief Medical Officer and Epidemiologist, Dr. Ryan Westergaard, state publicly on June 3, 2020

    “Now the science is in. [Because of] recent studies with large numbers of patients in large numbers of countries…. we have hard evidence that risk of transmission goes down dramatically when people wear masks.”

    I thought that he had to be wrong, because dozens of studies over decades had established that public masking does not impede viral transmission. The CDC, under your directorship, had even published a mere two months earlier, in May, 2020,

    “In pooled analysis, we found no significant reduction in influenza transmission with the use of face masks”.

    Then, just two weeks ago, on September 16, 2020, I listened carefully to your testimony before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Coronavirus Response when you said, beginning at 1:04:40,

    “Face masks are the most important powerful public health tool we have ….. We have clear scientific evidence they work, and they are our best defense. I might even go so far as to say that this face mask is more guarantee to protect me against Covid than when I take a Covid vaccine, because the immunogenicity may be 70%, and if I don’t get an immune response, the vaccine’s not going to protect me. This mask will.” (emphasis added)

    Your statement is that “clear scientific evidence” would necessarily involve randomized controlled trials.

    Such bona fide scientific studies could not have been accomplished in the brief period between Spring, 2020, when it was understood within the scientific community that public masking is pointless, and July, when the CDC began telling people to mask up, using as justification a list of barely related anecdotal notes.

    I consider these statements as politicized “expertise”.

    The CDC under your leadership misrepresents the protective value of masks.

    That, of course, points to a much larger political project at play.

    Bill Willers is an emeritus professor of biology, University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh. He is founder of the Superior Wilderness Action Network (SWAN) and editor of Learning to Listen to the Land, and Unmanaged Landscapes, both from Island Press. He can be contacted at willers@uwosh.edu

    The same academic asks of directly of Wisconsin’s Chief Medical Officer and Epidemiologist, Dr. Ryan Westergaard

    “Dear Dr. Westergaard: In a July appearance on Wisconsin Public Television’s Here and Now, you stated that recent studies have shown with certainty that mask wearing by the general public protects against becoming infected with a virus as well as against transmission to others. I’m writing to ask for citations to some of the studies to which you refer. Having that information would be of great help in my discussions with others in the biological community. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, William B. Willers, Emeritus Professor of Biology.”

    There are many studies which show that masks do not inhibit the spread of viral particles, yet there are no controlled trials which show that masks do inhibit viral infection. If such controlled studies exist, they would have been cited by the ‘experts’ who tell us that masks work, and the idiots who believe it would have a peg for their credulity – but there are none.

    Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures

    Jingyi Xiao1, Eunice Y. C. Shiu1, Huizhi Gao, Jessica Y. Wong, Min W. Fong, Sukhyun Ryu, and Benjamin J. Cowling

    Abstract

    There were 3 influenza pandemics in the 20th century, and there has been 1 so far in the 21st century. Local, national, and international health authorities regularly update their plans for mitigating the next influenza pandemic in light of the latest available evidence on the effectiveness of various control measures in reducing transmission. Here, we review the evidence base on the effectiveness of nonpharmaceutical personal protective measures and environmental hygiene measures in nonhealthcare settings and discuss their potential inclusion in pandemic plans. Although mechanistic studies support the potential effect of hand hygiene or face masks, evidence from 14 randomized controlled trials of these measures did not support a substantial effect on transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza. We similarly found limited evidence on the effectiveness of improved hygiene and environmental cleaning. We identified several major knowledge gaps requiring further research, most fundamentally an improved characterization of the modes of person-to-person transmission.

    That last sentence is interesting……how does influenza spread?

    EXPERIMENTS TO DETERMINE MODE OF SPREAD OF INFLUENZA
    MILTON J. ROSENAU, M.D.

    The experiments here described were performed on an island in Boston Harbor, on volunteers obtained from the Navy. The work was conducted by a group of officers detailed for that purpose, from the U. S. Navy and the U. S. Public Health Service, consisting of Dr. G. W. McCoy, director of the Hygienic Library, Dr. Joseph Goldberger, Dr. Leake, and Dr. Lake, all on the part of the U. S. Public Health Service; and cooperating with those medical officers, was a group also detailed for this purpose on the part of the U. S. Navy, consisting of Dr. J. J. Keegan, Dr. De Wayne Richey and myself.

    The work itself was conducted at Gallops Island, which is the quarantine station of the Port of Boston, and peculiarly well fitted for operations of this kind, serving adequately for the purposes of isolation, observations, and maintenance of the large group of volunteers

    The landmark study of Milton J. Rosenau, MD, “Experiments to Determine Mode of Spread of Influenza,” was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1919.

    They isolated microbial mixtures from the throat and noses of carefully selected influenza cases from an outbreak location. The researchers then administered these to 10 young U.S. navy volunteers without prior exposure to influenza. None fell sick.
    They drew blood from influenza patients and transferred it to the navy volunteers. None fell sick.
    They collected influenza patients’ mucous membranes with swabs and filtered them to exclude larger microbes like bacteria. They then injected the filtrate into the navy volunteers. None fell sick.
    They brought the navy volunteers to meet influenza patients. They shook hands and conversed. The patients also exhaled (as hard as possible) onto the volunteers’ face for five times. Then the patients cough directly onto the volunteers. None fell sick.

  45. Christmas is a fake holiday as well Phantom, don’t denigrate others celebrations when you are as guilty as the rest of fake holidays

  46. Happy Festivus to you

  47. Paul,

    “If things continue as they have been doing over here it’s highly likely that the three children I have living away from home won’t be here for Christmas 🙁”

    Sorry to hear that, that sucks. Similar boat here, though I’ll likely be the one not able to travel.

    I have a Canadian friend whose preferred greeting at that time of year is “Happy Crappy”. Might bust that one out myself this time.

    Hearty lol. Better this scenario than Pete infecting an aged relative though.

  49. Being from Scouseland 10/1 Dave uses ‘Happy Crimbo’ 😉

  50. don’t be ashamed to mention his name once a year , Christmas or Xmas
    Its his birthday c’mon
    we have other holidays and things like that all year round
    step up 🙂

  51. I don’t care what you call it. Christmas, holidays, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Crimbo, Xmas. As long as you say happy instead of merry.

    And we all know it should be Felix Saturnalia.

    Sorry to hear that Paul. I personally think a lot of governments are going to relax lockdowns for Christmas, largely as they know a lot of people aren’t going to abide by them anyway.

  54. Some things just don’t need changing
    The name of Christmas and pints 😉
    Who orders a litre of beer 🍻
    Bugger off . Traditions are worth keeping
    The rest update them as we evolve through stuff
    What’s your roolin Charles ?

  55. The proper imperial pint is the best thing in the world

    Around here, you’ll only see them, in nonik glasses, in some Irish pubs

    All the others go with the short changed US 16 ounce pints

  56. this Xmas ( too long to type the other way )

    There’s nothing wrong with typing the abbreviated version Kurt.
    Only people who don’t understand the actual origins of Xmas would object to that.

  57. //. The “X” comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word for Christ. This is a Christian term.//

    What a subject for a thread for X sake.

  58. X on a velocipede Noel. You’re right.

  59. Paul. I hope you get to see your family at Christmas somehow mate

    Even though my mum’s in her mid 70s, she’s told us that she still wants to do the family Christmas. Which I’m glad about.
