On the NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade Facebook page is this announcement from last Friday of the government paying tens of millions of dollars for the development of a vaccine. So far the video has had 356 comments and only one is in favour (by someone called Ahmed Alzaher). You can’t see the comments just by clicking on the video, you have to go to the NZ MFAT page here:
This is a government Facebook page so we can be quite sure no comments in favour have been filtered out!
For example, this comment has 131 likes:
“Jacinda our leader! Perhaps you and your family can lead the way with being the first in this country to have vaccine and show us the Nation your confidence As you can see by the comments a large % of NZ are Not Happy with this! “
This one has had 98 likes:
“There’s NO WAY we will be getting the vaccine. Did you not see the poll The Herald ran? Over half of New Zealanders don’t want it so what a ridiculous waste of time and money.”
All the comments are in the same vein. More:
“No way. You want to mess with our DNA. Just no Jacinda. You have got in the Wrong boat with that corrupt and un elected, overly powerful Gates. Put that $37 million into mandating good health and nutrition. NOT AN UNSAFE VACCINE. You have sold us out Jacinda. My children are not for you to test this vaccine on. Leave us alone.”
“Our family DOES NOT consent. There is NO WAY anyone is going to tell us what to do with our bodies. WE CHOOSE how to look after our health and well being, now and in future. You should understand and respect this being a mother yourself.”
“So the narrative goes NZ is the “envy of the world”. Really? While businesses go down the toilet. Please stop blathering on to us like we are schoolchildren, dishing money out like it’s lollies and get our little country up and running again. The covid pantomime is over!”
Someone posted this news story from 2006 in the comments — vaccines have been tested on the NZ population before and it was not a success. Remember?
Interestingly, I was sent a message on the evening of Monday 1 June (the end of Queens Birthday Weekend) to say that Bill Gates’ private plane had flown into Queenstown and that he had met up with Jacinda there over the weekend. I was sent the registration number of the plane, told that flight tracking companies had blocked the ID and asked if there had been any sightings. Well, the weekend was over and I thought it was probably just fake news. Maybe it was, but on seeing this video, maybe it wasn’t…
We have largely avoided the general vaccine issue to date, however, when 98.4% of those who got the cv-19 virus recovered without a vaccine, why do we need one? The proper research and development of a vaccine takes years — the thought of a rushed vaccine is terrifying, as is the idea of the government making it compulsory.–Eds
Update from Carol
The video on NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade had 560 comments last time I looked and ALL bar one were opposed to what Jacinda was saying. I know because I read them all. Actually it had more than that because many comments had reply comments underneath them. NZMFAT has deleted hundreds of comments! Just appalling government censorship. Someone says it got up to 672.
So then more comments went up, asking ” Where is my comment?!”, “Why have you taken all the comments down?”, etc.
They were deleted too!
At this moment there have been 13 more comments but guess what? You are only allowed to see one of them!
Has the Jacinda government been taking lessons from the Chinese Communist Party?
Fortunately Vickie Simons took some screenshots. She didn’t manage to take one to show 672 comments, but here is proof that there were at least 541 comments.
