The German news today informs us that the excitable and extreme CoronaPanic-loyalist Karl Lauterbach has made an appearance in Washington July 21, 2022. The White House hosted him. The visit looks to have been an international Covid strategy session by Panic-loyalists.
After leaving the White House, Lauterbach spoke to the German press in Washington and there regaled his captive audience with alarmist predictions about a coming “catastrophe.” (ZDF, “Lauterbach warns of ‘catastrophic’ autumn,” July 22, 2022). Lauterbach’s song-and-dance before the German press corps of Washington hints at the contents of the closed-door White House meeting.
Although this man is sometimes called Germany’s Doctor Fauci in U.S. media, I prefer to call Herr Professor Lautcherbach by this name: “Germany’s Wrongest Man.”
The mad-doctor seems to do this a lot, hector those willing to listen that a Covid Catastrophe is coming, very soon (believe him), if new measures are not put in place. If a “catastrophe” doesn’t come, it’s because of the heroic efforts and faith of himself and loyal Panic-supporters.
“Without new protective measures, we are threatened with a catastrophe this autumn,” [Lauterbach said.] “If we head into autumn like we’re doing, without further protective measures, that is to say without masks, without anything, that would mean that the case numbers would rise sharply and the ICUs would overflow.”
He has long been known to be an alarmist and extreme Panic-pusher with a special immunity to facts.
The visit by Germany’s Wrongest Man was not much covered by the U.S. media, as far as I’ve seen (they give so much space “January 6th hearings,” there is little time for anything else). But via the German media, we get this little snapshot of the beleaguered Corona-loyalist Pro-Panic forces regrouping.
We already see signs they want to take the offensive again. It may be hard to really get momentum again, as there are now highly committed Anti-Panic forces who will not easily surrender or allow themselves to get outmaneuevered (as they did in spring 2020). And there are important (Panic-loyal) forces still with the Biden people.
The Corona-Panic, as a social force, is a mere shadow of its former self of six months ago. Alas, aall is not quite lost to the Panickers.
Here we see mad-doctor Lauterbach with his White House by his counterpart, the Biden Covid policy Czar Ashish Jha:
The White House counterpart holding the banner of Corona-Loyalism on behalf of Team Biden, Ashish Jha, is hardly in the news, and nor did the German press reports quote him. We can assume Ashish Jha nodded along with the various rantings of Germany’s Wrongest Man about a Covid Catastrophe coming to ye of so little faith.
(I know, I know: “Ashish Jha” sounds like an implausible, made-up, joke name. It’s actually a Brahmin-Hindu name. The former Prime Minister of Canada, Trudeau the Elder, got hopped up on powoer and demanded exotic immigrants be let in, apparently to soften up his enemy of old-line Anglo-Canadian conservatism. Canada took in Brahmin Jha’s parents in when the future Corona-czar was a boy of age nine, in 1979. He later he came to the USA.)
Meanwhile, Corona-Ayatollah Fauci has said he will retire in or about December 2024, but like many of the others he conspicuously refuses to admit any errors. Was Doctor Fauci at the German–US Corona-Panic summit of July 21, 2022?
What do we make of Herr Doktor Karl “Germany’s Wrongest Man” Lauterbach, his surprising resilience and his ongoing, active Panic-loyalty?
This despite many of the best and most active Corona-dissidents ant Anti-Panickers also being from the German-sphere, and before the victory of the Panic Germany being one of those that seemed to visibly lean Anti-Panic.
Amyway, spring 2020, this man Lauterbach has been not just consistently alarmist and consistently wrong, but consistently unwilling—or somehow psychologically unable—to admit his errors, to question whether the tenets of the Corona-Panic really are God’s Holy Word.
Lauterbach has been curiously secure in his Fauci-like role despite being on the extemist end of the Corona-ideology spectrum, a “Panicker’s Panicker” let’s say.
I should add that Lauterbach is not Europe’s wrongest man, for that dubious title must be the evil Neil Ferguson. The fantasy charts of doom produced by Neil Ferguson were a highly useful service to the Corona-Panic monster. The Panic monster used the Ferguson and his fantasy-charts to hypnotize, blackmail, and puppetize European leaders and political-cultures, falling like dominoes, caving in and joining up with the Panic during the critical period in March 2020. Lauterbach was an early convert and remains a loyalist to the Corona-Panic’s 2020-orthodox line. Since late 2021, he has even been Health Minister.
None in power seem to care about how wrong he has been. The only exception among organize-political-entities is the beleaguered AfD, consistent critics under constant pressure from the government. They have called for his resignation, but they are effected blocked and a cordon-sanitraire against any other party cooperating with them holds.
There are many extraparliamentary forces strongly critical of German’y Wrongest Man, Corona-fanatic Lauterbach. And the facts, reality, truth and beauty are Herr Professor Lauterbach’s harshest critics of all. As for those in power, they seem to care not how wrong he has been. It’s as if the entire political class were, and remain, a mix of hypnotized and scared of challenging power.
I am interested in why this is.
(Coming soon: Something almost completely different, an investigative post on the Georgia Guidestones. Bombed by a team of hotheads two weeks ago, I am interested in what that act and the shift in views on the Guidestones over the years says about our politics and culture.)
