Some of the people who suddenly gained enormous powers from COVID-19 just don’t want to let go. COVID restrictions are waning because the powerful can no longer hide the fact that the virus is becoming more mild by the variant, and, of course, there are midterm elections in 8 short months. A lot of what they did during the pandemic will be discussed inside courtrooms across America because, as more and more information is coming out, there was a lot of fraud that led to a lot of needless deaths. Enough people have tragically died from COVID. There is no need for some people to hype their deaths for their own narratives.
A lot of pandemic data was hyped and rarely in the direction of liberty and freedom.
For one such example, after being responsible for shutting schools down, forcing children to go through classes by virtual learning causing millions to degrade their study habits, and then mandating masks for kids, who have the lowest chance of dying from COVID, throughout most of the pandemic, the Chicago Teachers Union last September claimed that a school parent, a mother, caught COVID-19 from a student and died.
But, according to a Cook County Medical Examiner’s toxicology report, the woman did not die from COVID. She drank herself to death.
Chicago City Wire secured a toxicology report that revealed Denisha Henry, 32, died in September from “chronic ethanolism,” which is a term used by coroners to describe alcoholism as the cause of death. I guess chronic ethanolism sounds better.
Even so, the Chicago Teachers Union said that her death was because of COVID transmission at Jensen Scholastic Academy, where her child attended.
The union went the whole nine yards too. They issued a statement and organized a rally where they said Henry and another mother who died the same week, Shenitha Curry, died from COVID and they used their deaths to demand stronger pandemic restrictions. And even though Chicago’s Public Health commissioner found no evidence of a link between the two mothers’ deaths and in-school COVID-19 transmission, these cretins implied that they died by being infected after their kids brought it back with them from school. They should be charged with fraud.
Think about how their children will be scarred for life after being told they were the cause of their mother’s death. It was all a lie. Their deaths were tragic, but the point here is the union used their deaths for political and monetary gains.
And they can’t say it was a mistake, because you don’t release statements and organize a rally based on information that you didn’t get conclusive evidence to support your argument. They obviously either didn’t wait for the facts to come in or they ignored them. There is no option 3. What they did was reckless and unforgivable.
“Both mothers had children sent home from quarantined Jensen classrooms,” the Chicago Teachers Union said after Henry’s death. “One mother complained bitterly on social media that she was never contacted by a contact tracer. Within a week, she was dead.”
The Union then called for new pandemic measures in response to the two mothers’ deaths. Of the demanded measures, they wanted more rigorous contact tracing, universal weekly testing, and more staff to be hired. The union also busted chops on the city government for knocking back school restrictions.
Think of all the people who lied about COVID deaths throughout the pandemic. Some did it to increase the numbers to hurt Orange Man Bad, while others did it for monetary gains. Politicians, government bureaucrats, misinformation news media, woke corporate executives, and others have lied about COVID throughout. The pandemic was bad enough on its own, but there is no doubt that it was exploited for personal and political gains. The people with power persecuted anyone who sought the truth, who asked questions, or who provided studies that gave new information about the virus, but because the data didn’t fit in with the Left’s narrative, they were punished in various ways.
I doubt anything will happen to the Chicago Teachers Union for lying about two women’s deaths and allowing their children to believe they were the cause. If nothing else, they should come clean and give up sincere apologies to the families of the dead. And may they rest in peace.
