Invisible Casualties: The Injury That Dare Not Speak Its Name
Notes from the Cyber-Gulag
Helping the vaccine-injured is now a crime. In fact, even just publicly brainstorming about how to help them, how to make them aware of an effective protocol by doctors mitigating damage for many vaccine-injured people, is now a crime.
I have been thrown in twitter-jail once again for WrongSpeak. For a week this time. The offending tweet is below. In the meantime, you can follow my musings here on my Substack, and on my backup twitter account @horsepasty.
Yes, that tweet really cost me one week in twitter jail, which I am currently serving. And my next infraction (which is of course impossible to predict or avoid, since the Rules of Engagement are ever-shifting) will likely result in permanent suspension. Welcome to the New Normal.
The link I offered in my verbotten tweet is to the original I-RECOVER protocol put forth by the doctors at Frontline Covid Critical Care (FLCCC). FLCCC is a U.S. organization launched back at the start of the pandemic by Drs. Paul Marik and Pierre Kory and other doctors working to find and publicize effective treatment protocols for Covid-19 patients.
Their I-RECOVER protocol was designed to treat patients suffering with Long Covid. They state in their initial release of this protocol that “This protocol has also been used to treat post-vaccine inflammatory syndromes with similar success.”
The FLCCC doctors have subsequently released a stand-alone version of their I-RECOVER protocol that is specifically for “Management of Post-Vaccine Syndrome.” Version 3 of that Post-Vaccine protocol is dated August 3, 2022 and can be found here.
But returning to the illicit twitter convo that landed me in the cyber-slam for a week, you can see that I was chatting with a UK activist about various strategies for waking the somnolent and creating space for the vaccine-injured to tell their stories and be heard. The “Yellow Boards” roadside actions occurring in various UK cities seem to be quite effective.
“The honks are absolutely in support, lots of shouts of ‘well done’, ‘thank you’ and (quite popular) ‘fuck the jab’, as well as pedestrians thanking us and telling us of their vax injuries. The spectacle also helpfully serves to trigger cognitive dissonance in passing covidians,” Robert Stuart (@cerumol) told me online.
Candlelight Vigils for the Vaccine-Dead & Injured
Here in Canada, Vaccine Choice Canada teamed up with Canada Health Alliance to hold a series of candlelight vigils across the country in June to “honour those who lost their lives or were injured by vaccines and/or mandates.”
A second series of candlelight vigils has just begun for the month of August. The schedule can be found here.
I attended the June 19 vigil in Nanaimo BC, and was moved by the 65 people who showed up to form a large circle and share their stories down at Maffeo Sutton Park.
Prior to the first vigil, I had already decided not to attend because I thought it would be too depressing and (re)traumatizing to hear all the stories and be bathed in so much pain and grief. We have all had quite a lot of that already for the past two and half years, so do we really need to go searching for more?
But in fact, I found the candlelight vigil to be enormously empowering, listening to all of these previously silenced, ignored, dismissed and denied voices that night in a huge circle beside the sea on a warm summer evening. We were all linked in that moment. We were the collective embodiment of giving voice to the voiceless. Of speaking the names and telling the stories not permitted to be true. I went away with a renewed sense of purpose and mission, revitalized by the importance of speaking truth to power, speaking truth in the face of ridicule and vilification. The importance of not shutting up.
If I had not gone, if each one of the five dozen of us had just stayed home, then those stories, those names, those victims and their brutal truths, would have remained hidden forever. Like a dirty secret. And their loved ones would have been left alone with their grief.
When I shared the announcement of the first Nanaimo candlelight vigil on my Facebook page back in June, I received one and only one comment, despite my 4,100 Facebook friends. My commenter asked: “When is the vigil for those, including front-line workers, who died from COVID?” As though those are the only real Covid victims, the only victims worthy of a candlelight vigil and public mourning.
To which I replied: “I don't know, but those tragedies (which were all preventable, by the way with proper early treatment--you can thank government for murdering all those people) they have been mourned continuously and publicly since the beginning. The vaccine-injured and vaccine-dead on the other hand are considered a dirty secret that must be denied because the reality of vaccine casualties hurts the Official Narrative. And so those people and those deaths are ignored, reviled, denied. It's profoundly offensive and hurtful, hence the need for an event to share those losses.”
The next candlelight vigil in Nanaimo for those injured or killed by vaccines or mandates is Wednesday, August 24 at 8:00 pm at Maffeo Sutton Park.
