Anti-Vaccine MP Andrew Bridgen is NOT an Antisemite!
A Ridiculous Smear Campaign
I am a Jew. I am against antisemitism, which is defined as hatred of all Jews. I am equally (not more and not less) against hatred of any other ethnic group. All people deserve to be treated fairly, regardless of their ethnicity.
Let’s look at the latest hysterics surrounding British MP Andrew Bridgen, who is not a stranger to the readers of this substack. He is a brave British parliamentarian who is not afraid to criticize Covid vaccines.
This is his controversial tweet:
This statement provoked the fury of two people: Matt Hancock, responsible for the UK’s pandemic response and mass Covid vaccinations, and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, a WEF member whose hedge fund invested heavily in shares of Moderna.
Here they are:
Matt and Rishi became mad at Mr. Bridgen, obviously not because his Covid vaccine skepticism threatens their interests, but because they saw Andrew’s statement as “antisemitic.” (I hope that you do not miss my sarcasm)
Watch their angry outburst here:
I may be a little slow, but I cannot understand how is Mr. Bridgen’s tweet antisemitic. He does not express any dislike of Jews. He also states that [Covid] “is the biggest crime since Holocaust.”
The obvious grammatical structure of his statement implies that Mr. Bridgen does not even compare the “Covid vaccine” to Holocaust! His comparison does not involve Holocaust at all! “Since Holocaust” means that he is looking at crimes past-Holocaust.
Where is the antisemitism, exactly?
Prof. Norman Fenton, who, like myself, also happens to be a Jew, weighs in:
Search for Past Accusations
Duckduckgo search engine allows a search by “date range.” So I searched for “Andrew Bridgen antisemitic” from 2010 until early 2020 to see how often Mr. Bridgen was accused of antisemitism. This was a way for me to fact-check myself.
Here’s the search:
Here’s the result:
I checked these results, and none seems to suggest much interest in Mr. Bridgen towards antisemitism, and they seem to talk about other people entirely.
It is NOT Antisemitic to Remember the Holocaust!
The Holocaust is a unique tragedy that happened to the Jews during World War Two. Several million innocent Jews perished due to antisemitism that became institutionalized and accepted as normal behavior by thousands of previously ordinary citizens.
Throughout the history of the world, there has been a string of other genocides, ethnic cleansings, and depopulations happening to other ethnic groups. A list of those by name would be longer than this entire substack post.
Each of these events was equally tragic for every family involved.
Tragedies should NOT need to be compared against each other. But they all must be remembered, acknowledged, and prevented from happening again.
To prevent these crimes, we must remember them and appropriately invoke them to prevent their recurrence.
The Holocaust is a historically recent tragedy of great importance. Many of us, like Norman Fenton or myself, had relatives affected by it. Holocaust is not the property of politicized hack groups, such as the ADL or Southern Poverty Law Center, and nobody owns it. The Holocaust belongs to the entire humanity.
Nobody can disallow us to remember the Holocaust when trying to prevent other tragedies from happening.
We need compassion for all people who die due to hate, reckless experimentation, ethnic cleansing, eugenics, plunder, attempts to depopulate any groups or even the entire humanity, and more. The Holocaust instructs us to be vigilant about ALL future attempts at such malfeasance and protect all people unfairly targeted by evil interests.
Andrew Bridgen, in making his statement, was not expressing any ethnic antipathy. Quite to the contrary, he was trying to save lives affected by “Covid vaccines.” Thus, his invocation of the Holocaust reflected his good intention to prevent a current tragedy from continuing.
Do Not Compare Tragedies
Which tragedy is worse? Tragedy A, which killed a million persons, or Tragedy B, where only ten thousand were killed with equal madness and cruelty?
Never ask this question. It is a wrong question.
Would you prefer your family perish in Tragedy A or Tragedy B? Anyone would equally NOT want either to happen to them! So do not compare tragedies and never say that one is better or worse than others.
The number of victims of Sars-Cov-2 (a lab-made pathogen) and Covid vaccines (promoted by the same people who financed the development of Sars-Cov-2) is in the TENS OF MILLIONS and growing.
Please look at Covid, Covid vaccines, and the tragic outcomes of recklessness, greed, arrogance, and misanthropy separately from other historical events.
Covid-19 is a global disturbance without an exact precedent. It is a story showing how advanced technology (virology and genetic treatments) is operated by people who are neither intellectually nor morally capable of acting wisely.
Please do not compare it to other crimes that happened throughout history. COVID-19 is not “better than Holocaust” or “worse than Holocaust.” It is separate.
Covid-19 is still active in our communities, people still die at excess rates, and nobody knows how or when it will end and how many more victims it will claim. It is a terrible story that needs its perpetrators adjudicated without inappropriate and unnecessary comparisons with past mass crimes.
Fortunately, Andrew Bridgen did not make such comparisons and is working hard to save lives.
Is Vera Sharav, a Holocaust survivor objecting to Covid vaccine mandates, an antisemite too? Watch her video
