    Sweden Proves the Lockdown Was Unnecessary
    https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2...s-unnecessary/

    TRANSCRIPT EXCERPT

    RUSH: Does somebody out there remember the coronavirus? Do you remember how we had to be locked down for two or three months out there because otherwise the hospitals would be overrun? Well, we had to be locked down to save ourselves. We’ve had to be locked down because we thought we were gonna die! We had to be locked down, making sure… We had to flatten the curve, that we didn’t overwhelm the hospitals.

    Remember all that? We had to destroy the economy! We had to put 40 million people out of work. Remember all that? All so millions of people would not die. Well, the main fearmonger — the man responsible for the model that world leaders cited as their excuse to shut down their countries, including in this country — is this Neil Ferguson guy from the U.K.



    Remember, he’s the guy that first published the model that said 2.2 million people will die — 500,000 if we engage in social distancing. But the first figure was 2.2 million if we didn’t do anything. His model has yet to be right, but everybody relied on it. Well, now this same guy says that the lockdowns ended up doing nothing, and that Sweden shows that every country would have had the same outcome whether they had locked down or not.

    You got that?

    BREAK TRANSCRIPT

    RUSH: So this epidemiologist, Neil Ferguson, says essentially that these lockdowns didn’t do anything. (paraphrased) “Sweden shows that every country would have had the same outcome without the lockdowns and social distancing.” He was asked why 4,000 people had died in Sweden instead of the 90,000 he had predicted. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.

    This guy, Neil Ferguson’s predictions at the outset said 90,000 people in Sweden would die because they weren’t gonna lock down, and 4,000 people died. They asked him, “What happened?” He said, “Well, I think it’s an interesting question.” (snort)

    from the BBC:

    Sweden's controversial decision not to impose a strict lockdown in response to the Covid-19 pandemic led to too many deaths, the man behind the policy, Anders Tegnell, has acknowledged.

    Sweden has seen a far higher mortality rate than its nearest neighbours and its nationals are being barred from crossing their borders.

    Dr Tegnell told Swedish radio more should have been done early on.

    "There is quite obviously a potential for improvement in what we have done."

    Sweden has counted 4,542 deaths and 40,803 infections in a population of 10 million, while Denmark, Norway and Finland have imposed lockdowns and seen far lower rates.

      MORE:

      Asked why 4,000 people had died in Sweden instead of 90,000, he said, “Well, I think that’s an interesting question.” Now, in 2009 (that’s 11 years ago) one of this clown’s models — Neil Ferguson, one of his models — predicted 65,000 people could die from the swine flu outbreak in the U.K. The final figure was below 500. So the question remains, “Why does this guy continually get cited? Why is he listened to?”

      He’s never right about anything. It’s a classic in how all of these elites and all these establishment types are propped up by each other, even though they are incompetent, demonstrably wrong, left and right. Well, the reason is because the guy’s predictions serve a purpose. They help governments keep people in line. They help governments herd people into action that they otherwise wouldn’t take by scaring the heck out of ’em.

                  I see 4,562 deaths, which is 452 per million population. #7 in the world, right after Italy.
                  That doesn't seem like a huge success to me.

                      Yes. Seriously. They have detailed numbers for the whole world.
                      But, hey, if you think the name is funny, try these:
                      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVID-...emic_in_Sweden

                      https://www.folkhalsomyndigheten.se/...19/statistics/

                      Now- do you have other numbers? If so, please tell us what they are, and where you got them from. Otherwise, stop telling us how well Sweden is doing without a lockdown.

                          Interesting "scam", that has managed to trick countries ranging from Russia, the US, China, Italy, Brazil, India etc. It manged to "scam" 400,000 people to death. Who is behind the "scam", and how did they manage to fool some many people?

                            Really? Here are just some quotes from the venerable Mr. Limbaugh:

                            "There is no conclusive proof that nicotine’s addictive… And the same thing with cigarettes causing emphysema, lung cancer, heart disease."

                            Here, the redoubtable Rush claims that President Obama is in cahoots with lesbians to to "attack" conservative rural areas of the U.S. I am not making this up:

                            "Rural America happens to be largely conservative. Rural America is made up of self-reliant, rugged individualist types. They happen to be big believers in the Second Amendment. So here comes the Obama Regime with a bunch of federal money and they’re waving it around, and all you gotta do to get it is be a lesbian and want to be a farmer and they’ll set you up. I’m like you; I never before in my life knew that lesbians wanted to be farmers.

                            I never knew that lesbians wanted to get behind the horse and the plow and start burrowing. I never knew it. But apparently enough money can make it happen, and the objective here is to attack rural states. They’re already attacking suburbs, and that has been made perfectly clear by what happened in Milwaukee. They’re going after every geographic region that is known to be largely conservative. They never stop, folks. They are constantly on the march
                            ."

                            Enough? I am sure I can find more. Perhaps you can cite demonstrable falsehoods from the BBC?
