The South African government reports today that the Omicron variant is widespread yet not creating any medical issues. “Only 1.7% of identified Covid-19 cases were admitted to hospital in the second week of infections in the fourth wave, compared with 19% in the same week of the third delta-driven wave, South African Health Minister Joe Phaahla said at a press conference.”
At the same time, the White House COVID crisis response team is driving the fearmongering around Omicron at staggering levels of propaganda and fear porn. During a public broadcast of the White House position, COVID response coordinator Jeff Zients is again claiming that Omicron will kill millions of Americans if rapid action is not taken to shut down human activity.
Zients claims today that a “severe winter of illness and death” awaits anyone who does not adhere to the political propaganda they are pushing. WATCH (01:06):
This is the same coordinated fear messaging Joe Biden was pushing yesterday. Obviously, the White House has made the decision to double down on the fear porn.
It remains most likely the intensity behind the insane push to create panic is likely motivated by a political need to try and influence the demand side of human activity.
One way to look at the motives of Omicron, as a tool to control behavior, is to look at the political effort as a method to stop travel, work, transportation services and other economic activity that involves the use of gasoline.
In essence, Omicron becomes a tool to target the demand side of higher gas prices. If the proles would just get fearful, stay home and lock down, then demand for energy would slow, and the citizens would not notice the negative effects of energy policy.
Amid the reality of Omicron not being troublesome from a medical perspective; and understanding that every action the White House takes is from a position of extreme politics; this is the only explanation for their fearmongering that makes sense.
