The New COVID Untouchables
Yes we are now seeing a new medical apartheid:
Most folks would be aware of the untouchables in India. These are a group of people who are discriminated against because they are deemed in various ways to be inferior. As one online definition puts it: “Untouchability is the practice of ostracising a group of people regarded as ‘untouchables’, resulting in the segregation and persecutions from the people regarded as ‘higher’ caste. The term is most commonly associated with treatment of the Dalit communities in the Indian subcontinent.”
There are other groups who would be in similar situations – both past and present. Here I wish to speak to a new group of medical untouchables – those who are now being discriminated against, reviled and persecuted because of the new crime of asking questions about COVID and having vaccine hesitancy.
There are many folks who have legitimate concerns about the new COVID vaccines who are not rushing out to get the jab. But increasingly they are being made to feel like pariahs – and granny killers. Just as certain groups in the past were treated as second-class citizens – or worse – so too today.
One writer recently asked the question, “What will segregated society look like for the unvaxxed?” He begins his piece this way:
In 2020, the proposition that COVID-19 countermeasures would come to include forced vaccination and vaccine passports, resulting in a segregated society where only those participating in the COVID injection experiment have human rights, was labeled a wild conspiracy theory unworthy of discussion. Fast-forward to August 2, 2021, and Forbes announces, “No Vax, No Service: Here’s Where Bars and Restaurants Across U.S. Are Requiring Proof of Vaccination.”
He looks in detail at various ways in which this COVID discrimination is taking place:
-No jab, no dining
-No jab, no job
-No jab, no business
-No jab, no food
Hmm, certainly looks like the new untouchables to me. He continues:
Some are promoting even more severe punishment for the unvaccinated. Yet, it’s not enough for some thought leaders that unvaccinated individuals can’t enter a bar or restaurant, and might lose their ability to send or receive money for goods and services using PayPal (and potentially other digital transaction services).
For example, CNN anchor Don Lemon recently suggested unvaccinated people ought to be barred from buying food and have their driver’s license taken away.
I’d like you to conduct a thought experiment, and think this through from start to finish. What would your life be like if you were:-Barred from driving
-Barred from working and earning a paycheck
-Barred from sending or receiving money online
-Barred from having a bank account and credit card
-Barred from eating food at a restaurant (assuming you somehow got the cash to pay for it)
-Barred from buying food in a grocery store (again, assuming you somehow got the cash to pay for it)
Are Lemon and countless others actually saying it is acceptable to make half the U.S. population homeless and starve them to death in order to, theoretically, prevent the spread of an infection that, so far, has had a 99.74% survival rate? https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/what-will-segregated-society-look-like-for-the-unvaxxed/
Another commentator who is greatly concerned about all this has just penned a lengthy piece on “Mob Morality and the Unvaxxed.” Here are just two paragraphs from the piece:
Fascism taps into, exploits, and institutionalizes a deeper instinct. The practice of creating dehumanized classes of people and then murdering them is older than history. It emerges again and again under all political systems. Our own is not exempt. The campaign against the unvaccinated, garbed in the white lab coat of Science, munitioned with biased data, and waving the pennant of altruism, channels a brutal, ancient impulse.
Does that mean that the unvaccinated will be rounded up in concentration camps and their leaders ritually murdered? No. they will be segregated from society in other ways. More importantly, the energies invoked by the scapegoating, dehumanizing, pollution-associating campaign can be applied to gain public acceptance of coercive policies, particularly policies that fit the narrative of removing pollution. Currently, a vaccine passport is required to visit certain countries. Imagine needing one to go shopping, drive a car, or exit your home. It would be easily enforceable anywhere that has implemented the “internet of things,” in which everything from automobiles to door locks is under central control. The flimsiest pretext will suffice once the ancient template of sacrificial victim, the repository of pollution, has been established. https://charleseisenstein.substack.com/p/mob-morality-and-the-unvaxxed
Oh, and in case some of you are thinking, ‘that is all a bit far-fetched,’ I can assure you it is not. Simply speaking from my own experience, I have already had a number of folks sending comments into my site telling me that with my concerns about lockdowns and mandatory vaccinations, I deserve to die from COVID. Yes they are actually saying that.
In the name of some sort of generic love of humanity, they have a real hatred for actual people. And in this case, it is the new group of untouchables: the vax hesitant. According to the true believers, they deserve to die. They deserve whatever they get because they dare to think independently, ask questions, and raise their concerns in public.
So this medical discrimination and health apartheid certainly exists, and is getting worse by the day. And as is so often the case, most of this is simply driven by fear. Our leaders, politicians, chief health officers, and media have been dishing up 24/7 hysteria and panic porn. This promotion of fear is never ending. We are not being offered any hope by our leaders: only terror, hysteria, and constant fear. Australian Nick Cater deals with this in an English website:
The coronavirus death toll in Australia demands to be put into perspective given the draconian restrictions to economic and social life now in force. There have been around 30 deaths in Australia since cases began to rise at the start of July. In Britain, around 2,000 people died of Covid-19 in that same period, but Britons have not been incarcerated in their own homes and the army is not manning border checkpoints between Surrey and Kent.
The meek acceptance of some of the harshest lockdowns in the world in the land of Crocodile Dundee cries out for an explanation. Why do the Brits have the courage to wander around freely after recording 188,000 positive tests in a week? Why aren’t they being kept at home for their own safety? Why aren’t their movements controlled by a list of regulations 27 pages long, as they are in Melbourne after a mere 50 locally acquired cases were discovered in the same period? Why is it okay for Brits to stand maskless to order two pints of lager and a packet of crisps when the picnic police are fining people in Sydney a thousand bucks for the crime of eating a sandwich in the park?
Since the odds of having caught the virus in Australia so far is tiny, as are the chances of it killing healthy people under the age of 70, one would have thought Australians would have collectively told the public-health nags to pull their bloody heads in. Not so….
The simple explanation is that Australians are behaving this way because most are scared witless. The July edition of Ipsos’s regular report, What Worries the World, found that Australians fret about Covid more than people in 25 of the 28 countries surveyed.
Policy is largely being driven by the heart, not the head. Our response to the pandemic is sentimental, and the predominant emotion is fear. Combine that with the modern culture of safetyism and you end up with a real conundrum….
The deification of chief government health officers, who have risen from obscurity to become minor celebrities, has been one of the biggest mistakes so far. It has allowed politicians to outsource responsibility and avoid doing a key part of their job, which is to decide the proper balance between competing policy imperatives and to test their judgement in parliament. Instead, the authority of parliament and a thousand years of history that lies behind it has been usurped by ‘The Science’. It is an odd kind of ‘science’ that denies us the right to dispute its findings, that ignores discordant evidence, that remains rigid in the face of new facts, that keeps its data close to its chest and that cancels dissenting voices. In other words, it is not science at all. It is a form of superstition….
Fear has been amplified in a feedback loop, circling back to the public where it has become entrenched, altering judgements of reality. In early June, when this year’s death toll in Australia was precisely one, a survey asked people to mark on a sliding scale the number of people who they thought had died. The average response was 256. We’ve got to get out of this place. https://www.spiked-online.com/2021/08/12/australia-is-paralysed-by-fear/
I and others have often sought to remind folks what was happening in Germany in the 1930s. One recent piece also deals with this. His title says it all: “This Is 1938: First, They Came for the Unvaccinated.” Here is part of what he wrote:
1938 was not the Holocaust. It was the pre-Holocaust. It was the time before the nightmare, when the foundation was being laid to destroy the freedom, free speech, businesses and lives of millions of Jews. Everything happening today to the American people … to the U.S. Constitution … to freedom … and particularly to unvaccinated Americans reminds me of 1938. This is only the beginning. It gets much worse from here.
First, “the papers.” Vaccine mandates and vaccine passports are just like 1938, when the Gestapo demanded papers from every German. Republicans asked for “papers” from migrants who had broken into our country. Criminals. Democrats said, “No, that’s racism.” Republicans asked for “papers” once every two years for federal elections, to prove you have a right to vote. Democrats said, “No, that’s racism.”
Now Democrats want American citizens, not illegal aliens, not criminals, but patriots born in this country, to produce papers 24/7. We’ll need papers to enter restaurants, bars, nightclubs, concerts, casinos, conventions and hotels and to board a train, plane or bus. We’ll need papers to enter a supermarket, or we’ll starve to death. All for the crime of being unvaccinated….
By the way, this isn’t about vaccines. If you want the vaccine, take it. I’d never stop you. I’d never limit your freedom, your choice. This is about vaccine mandates — forcibly injecting Americans who don’t want it. That’s 1938. But there’s much more in common with 1938. Mask mandates. If you’re scared, wear them. I’m not scared. I don’t want to wear them. Mandates are about forcing individuals to lose their freedom, choice, individuality and human rights. That’s 1938.
Lockdowns are a match with the Warsaw Ghetto. Jews were locked down. Jews couldn’t work. Jews couldn’t travel. Jewish businesses were labeled “nonessential.” If government can force us to close our businesses, to kill our jobs, to decide who is nonessential, then this is 1938. Stars on clothing. It’s coming. The vaccinated get into restaurants, bars, concerts, supermarkets, planes and trains. They keep their jobs. The rest of us are marked as “subhuman” for life. That’s the star. That’s 1938. https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2021/08/1938-first-they-came-unvaccinated-wayne-allyn-root/
Here in Australia we thankfully have other brave voices willing to sound the alarm. Alan Jones on Sky news has been very good on all this for quite some time now. And Queensland MP George Christensen recently gave a speech in Parliament for which he was condemned by many.
But it was such a good speech that even Fox News in America has run with the story. You can see part of that interview here: https://www.foxnews.com/media/australia-lawmaker-blasts-coronavirus-overreactions-we-are-locking-down-because-someone-sneezes
Some of us have been sounding the alarm about the new COVID untouchables. I will keep doing so until I am finally stopped. In the meantime, hopefully many will take heed – before it is too late.

Another great informative article. And life in Australia is becoming less free by the day. Western Australia has brought in border entry for only double vaccinated unless you have an exemption, so the state is beginning to choose policy on travel etc.
Anyone who sneezes will be fined? How about – anyone who criticizes unelected individuals such as Janette Young will be jailed?
In my view, the corona attack should be treated with caution but not fear as we all need to fear – fear as the ultimate defeat because once fear takes over all reason evaporates. Clearly, our so called leaders are clueless on how to deal with this virus so they resort to fear as the only available weapon. After all – better to err on the side of caution – right? Donald Trump warned:- “we should not allow our defence of the virus to do more damage than the virus itself” or words to that effect. He was right. Look at the damage these bed-wetters (those who wet the bed due to fear of everything such as Janette Young and the Premier) have caused to business and private lives!
Sadly the past 2 or 3 generations haven’t been taught about the PRE-war Nazis – all they know of Nazi Germany is Hitler, who apparently was a card carrying member of the Republican party, the Gestapo, and the holocaust and it’s camps. Because of this they don’t know the warning signs a nation is turning fascist. I believe that is by design. “those who forget history are doomed to repeat it!” I don’t know if Santayana was Christian but he was wise.
It is now called the pandemic of the unvaxxed in some places. WE are the ones spreading disease. I believe the Nazis said the same about the Jews. Unfortunately left leaning Jewish groups will balk at the Nazi comparison yet their politics would save them when the liberal beast they aide turns on them. Feed the crocodile all you want he WILL still eat you in the end!
Dear Bill, Thank you for the article and the warning. Yes! the writing IS definitely on the wall. Yet some don’t want to see it because what they want, eg. to travel and see relatives they haven’t seen in a while, jobs etc is stronger than the inclination to be convinced by the warning. Many won’t believe it until it is too late to do anything.
My study of history tells me that the world has never been short of evil people willing and able to control others so why should the present be any different?
I identify as vaccinated.
Hi Bill, missing you on Facebook.
Thanks for continuing to “fight the good fight”.
Another doctor you should read is Prof Bob Clancy, a retired immunologist from The University of Newcastle, writing for the Quadrant, & interviewed on ABC Newcastle; quoted by Craig Kelly MP, but like other “dissenting” voices, has been shut down.
I feel as though I am living in the Third Reich, or Mao’s China, not Australia.
Bob Menzies would be rolling in his grave if he found out the policy direction taken by the party he founded, which was all about free speech & individual rights.
Yes quite so Stephen – many thanks.
Perhaps we are to be declared crazy and hauled off to the nut farm. I sent you a video regarding this Bill. Apparently something close to that has happened in Australia. Authoritarians can’t be appeased only overthrown. Does Australia, and indeed the West, have enough brave people to do that?? That is the $64 question isn’t it???
Thanks Paul. Some Australians are standing strong. You can see the short speech by George Christensen here: https://rumble.com/vkz9ah-covid-19-restrictions-dont-work-end-this-madness.html
A friend has just sent me this info – ‘spontaneous reports’ ie just a sample of ‘adverse events’ after taking Pfizer vaxx. This is only over a 6 week period from Dec 20 to Jan 21.

It is unbelievably horrendous!
This is truly frightening. I’m not an Australian but in my own beloved country I have seen shades of this. The vaccination is now being offered to children aged 12 and above in my own country and you can’t dine inside a restaurant if you’re not vaccinated. There is another option for those who are hesitant to get the jab-a homeopathic vaccination which is much safer and quite effective against Covid. But I think most people are not aware of this option.
And it has most certainly not been mentioned by the media.
Is it true that Dan the Man is going to reintroduce harsh measures on people who choose not to be vaccinated? So many people in Vic are not weirdos but are not being allowed to express their point of view…because we all know Covid kills right ? Yeah like so many other disease… Should I start making my “corona star ” to indicate my pariah state?
Thanks Christine. Pretty much all of our political leaders are now pushing for mandatory vaccinations and vaxx passports. Even if they deny this, they are pushing a host of “incentives” to get everyone jabbed. Whether by carrot or sick, this flies directly against the Australian government’s own Australian Immunisation Handbook which clearly says this about vaccines: “It must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation.”
And there may be legal obstacles as well to forcing people to get jabbed against their will. See for example this recent piece by my friend Augusto Zimmermann:
The Dangers of pursuing Safety from those who understand the nature of humanity.
Relieving people of the burden of Freedom in order to make them feel safe is a recurring theme in the history of Authoritarianism.
A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
John Stuart Mill.
Danger makes men classical, and all greatness after all, is rooted in Risk
Danger alone acquaints us with our own resources: our virtues, our armor and weapons, our spirit, and forces us to be strong. First principle: one must need to be strong- otherwise one will never become strong.
My State, WV, isn’t as bad as some others, yet. There are no “vaccine passports “, and as a nurse my hospital maintains it’s a “personal decision “. However our state university is charging an extra $1000 plus for “Covid fees” and requiring frequent testing for the unvaxed. The private Christian college in this state is charging any unvaxed students an additional $1500. My Governor is a recent Republican, changed from Democrat, but has no cajones
Here in Canada the government is compelling federal workers to be vaccinated. In Quebec bars, restaurants, gyms and festivals, will demand vaccine passports on Sept. 1. Twitter is demanding in-office Canadian workers be vaccinated; other employers are following suit. Vaccinations will be mandatory for travel by plane, train or cruise ship.
This vaccine may not be the mark of the beast but it’s doing very good impression. Perhaps it’s softening us up in preparation for the real thing. Like an evil John the Baptist.
If your high court is like our in the States I wouldn’t count on them. Courts are notorious for going squishy just at the time the need a spine of steel.
The ‘Vaccine Hesitant’ & ‘Conspiracy Theorists’ a Domestic Terrorism Threat – New Homeland Security Report Implies
Now, it would seem, anyone questioning the conventional narrative around COVID-19 and the vaccines is at risk of being called more than just an “anti-vaxxer” but now a domestic terrorist. Or at least that is where the media and government narratives are heading.
We need to hope (and pray) that the the fact that the likelihood of dying from the vaccine is way greater than that of dying from the so called disease will be acknowledged in time to save many people from getting jabbed. The delays in the vaccines becoming available may save many lives. People also need to be informed that even if they believe the virus is real there are a number of effective treatments available other than untested vaccines. I think we are seeing some light at the end of this dark tunnel. Also there is so much evidence that masks are not only ineffective but actually counter productive. I have never worn one.
If it goes any further we may see ghettos again specifically for the un-vaxxed
The logic of the pro vaxxers is totally flawed. If you are paying online with a credit card or PayPal you aren’t spreading anything around other than money. You certainly aren’t infecting anyone with COVID. Same if you have been required to work from home as a result other than any family members or housemates that you may live with. In Pakistan they have begun to cut the unvaccinated off from communications by stopping their SIM cards. What if you wanted to make an appointment to your GP to get the vax? If you can’t leave your house and even though a legitimate reason is to get the jab or get tested for the virus that may change if Pakistan serves as an example of what may happen down the track. Contactless delivery is available for groceries as it is amongst other purchases that you might use.
