Clay Travis Drops Massive Truth Bomb On the Covid Panic

34 states had more deaths from the flu in 2018 than Covid deaths this year. That is straight from the CDc itself. In Pennsylvania, more people over 100 have died of Covid (or related) than those under 45. Think about that: OVER 100 years old! Did we shut down the country in 2018 over the flu?? No!

2020 will go down in history as one of the worst, unnecessary panics in human history. Covid is fear without any real danger, and corrupt left wing media and the rot that is social media pushed it.

The Covid ‘Crisis’ Never Existed and We Need To Go Back to Normal Immediately

I predicted here over a month ago that the Covid hysteria and the resultant draconian shutdowns might end up being the biggest con foisted on the human race in history, and it is starting to look like I am right.

Leave it to the most honest sports guy in the business to publish the most accurate summary of Covid studies, and the results show overwhelmingly that Covid is not as virulent nor as deadly as our governments and the corrupt left-wing media want you to believe:

Studies: Coronavirus Less Deadly, More Common Than Experts Believed

Why hasn’t the “mainstream” media done this. Sure, early on there were a few well-meaning medical people urging caution, but Covid containment is long past the point of “saving the people”. It is about power, control and money. The extent to which governments around the world have restricted or eliminated freedoms is beyond breathtaking. This is like a dry-run at a police state. And many in the medical community (Dr Fauci – don’t shake hands but Tinder hookups are OK) are complicit.

So we closed 30-40% of our economy, put 20 million people out of work, gave the Fed control over vast swaths of the financial markets, took away personal liberties, ended our kids’ school years and in many cases ceased to educate them (especially stupid given that studies show kids neither get Covid nor transmit it), and shut down all of our sports, from youth to high school to college and pro. All to eradicate something that may turn out to be less deadly than the common flu.

It is a small thing relatively (if you actually believe you are saving lives, which apparently we were not) but we ruined the end of middle school, high school and college for millions. There are a million stories about how the Covid lockdown has changed people’s lives for the worst. A couple of anecdotes: the week the world “stopped” my son’s high school was going for state titles in two separate sports. With spring wiped out my senior daughter’s highly-ranked tennis team had its season wiped out. These are things the kids will never get back. Those opportunities and memories are gone forever. There are probably tens of thousands of similar stories around the country, and it is just wrong. It looks like we stopped life for nothing.

The Covid madness must end immediately. Totalitarian politicians in this country (most though not all on the far-left) are using the ‘crisis’ solely to obtain power at this point. The one thing you can do: VOTE THE POWER-MAD LEFTISTS AND TOTALITARIANS OUT OF OFFICE IN NOVEMBER!

media and big tech is complicit:

Google is an odious company. Do not use any of their products if you possibly can if you like freedom.

MSESPN and Politics In Sports

Here is perhaps the best essay on politicization in sports media that I have read, and Clay Travis is far from a right-winger:

https://www.outkickthecoverage.com/first-amendment-espn-modern-media/

His point is, ESPN should not fire Jemele Hill despite her making some patently false, inflammatory and what could be interpreted as racist comments. It was done in private time, not on air. Unfortunately, MSESPN has dug itself into this hole by previously punishing or firing others for making comments that offended left-wing sensibilities, also in their private time not on air, thereby making it very clear which side of the political spectrum it sits on. Quoting Clay, here is the rub:

“ESPN shouldn’t be in the business of deciding what political opinions are appropriate and inappropriate, but when they fired Curt Schilling entirely for his political opinions nearly a year and a half ago they put themselves in the business of analyzing employee speech and determining what was permissible and what was impermissible. Rather than stand up to a left wing Internet mob that was upset with Schilling’s Facebook posts about transgender bathroom issues, ESPN could have simply said they disagreed with Schilling’s private beliefs, but didn’t believe those beliefs made him a bad baseball analyst. So ESPN had an opportunity to establish an important precedent with Curt Schilling, they could have simply said this to the online social media mob: “While many of you on social media may find this shocking, we employ tens of thousands of people to talk and write and produce shows about sports. And not all of them have the exact same opinion about political issues. Rather than demand that our employees avoid discussing politics or having any opinions on important issues facing our country, we’ve instructed all of them that those political opinions should never appear on our airwaves. But in their private lives, they may advocate for whichever causes and opinions they deem just. What they believe in their private lives is not our business so long as they do good jobs at work. We’re in the business of sports, not politics.”

ESPN must either allow all political speech by its personalities, or none at all. If it does not, it will soon be a footnote in media history.
