I spent Easter Sunday sparring with a Covidian on Twitter. It started out with a debate on my tweet announcing Are You a Good German or a Badass German? and spilled over into my subsequent tweet on Letter to the California Legislature. I have consolidated our exchanges here for your amusement and education regarding the Covidian mind.
JOHN KOCUREK: I read insane people as a hobby and I think this is one of the 5 most insane COVID takes I’ve ever seen. Congratulations.
MAA: Like Good Germans, you’ve acclimated to the totalitarian inversion of sanity, so being called insane by a menticide victim is a compliment!
“A nation that normalizes and mainstreams mental illness is … a very large insane asylum with no refuge for the sane.”
—T. Goode Charley
JOHN: Yeah yeah, anyone who disagrees is a nazi. Been done a thousand times. Not interesting on its own. But your article was outstanding lunacy and I loved every second. Thank you.
MAA: You said that, not me. You created a straw man to knock down instead of confronting the reality that you have succumbed to propaganda.
“He who dictates and formulates the words and phrases we use, he who is master of the press and radio, is master of the mind.”
JOHN: Ah you got me! Of course “Good German” has nothing to do with Nazis, how could I make that mistake😂
There is so much confident incompetence out there I feared I’d grown bored of it. You’ve reinvigorated me. I thank the adults in your life failing you.
MAA: Evidently, you don’t understand the term.
“‘Good Germans’ is a term referring to German citizens during and after World War II who claimed not to have supported the Nazi regime, but remained silent and did not resist in a meaningful way.”
“A citizen of Nazi Germany who participated in or overlooked atrocities while denying personal moral responsibility by appeal to his submission to supposedly legitimate authority.”
“They were as uninterested in the outside world as their contemporaries in France—or America. None of them ever heard anything bad about the Nazi regime except, as they believed, from Germany’s enemies, and Germany’s enemies were theirs.”
JOHN: See, that’s why you’re elite at what you do. Parsing of the language is Rush Limbaughesque. Congratulations.
What cute term do you have for the small group of Germans that embraced psuedoscience (eugenics) and fostered anti-government rage in the early 1930s? I know a term!
MAA: You are confused again—the small group of Germans that fostered pseudoscience took over the government in 1933 and suppressed anti-government dissent and free speech, just like the Covidian cult leaders you have relinquished your mind to.
Your inability to parse language makes you susceptible to framing, propaganda, and mass formation. If you wish to recover from mind control, you will need to embrace that ability instead of slinging ad hominem attacks to deflect from your culpability in defending totalitarianism.
JOHN: You keep talking about totalitarianism. Who do you recommend I vote for in 2024?
MAA: I’ll wait to see if anyone with character and integrity steps forward, but I’m not holding my breath given the paucity of politicians with either of those qualities.
One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough… (It) has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back. – also Carl Sagan
MAA: Funnily enough, I just used that same quote in an exchange with another Covidian. Sagan really pegged you cult followers well, didn’t he? The question is, Why have you given charlatans control over you, and why are you so stubbornly resistant to waking up from your bamboozlement?
JOHN: I haven’t given charlatans control over me, I’m being a Badass German and arguing with one right now.
MAA: Fabulous! Welcome to the #BadassGerman Club, then, and congratulations on jettisoning the delusions being peddled by government-sponsored charlatans! I knew there was hope for you, after all. Anyone who quotes Sagan can’t be entirely lost.
JOHN: Thank you. Next time I’m in Ashland can I come pick up a badge or something?
MAA: I can mail you one if you give me your address.
Repetition & Ridicule Fallacy
“If you hear something enough times, you will believe it. No matter how ridiculous, if you are presented with ‘facts’ in a certain way, you are hardwired to believe them. This is known as the appeal to ridicule fallacy.… Alternatively, if a ridiculous idea is given gravitas and treated with reverence, it will seem more viable. Repetition is a powerful tool, and when teamed with a shaming technique, it can be effective.”
—Neil Morton, Psychological Warfare & Deception
JOHN: I willingly read your blog. I willingly read your “facts.” I seek out people like you for fun, yet I’m not swayed. Why not?
MAA: That was my question to you—why aren’t you swayed by facts? Is it because you’ve been brainwashed into fearing anything that counters the Covidian cult’s propaganda or because you actually haven’t delved into the thousands of hyperlinks I’ve provided as supporting evidence?
I appreciate that you’re reading my blog—that is a big step for a Covidian. I still have hope that you will awaken from your hypnosis. Keep reading and keep being willing to challenge your indoctrination, and you may be able to liberate yourself from menticide, after all.
JOHN: I haven’t seen any facts. You just put quotes over your very nonspecific opinions and present it as truth. I would love to see some actual science from you, because I’ve seen plenty which disagrees. You promote ivermectin for heaven’s sake.
MAA: What’s nonspecific about 1,226,312 adverse reaction reports, including 26,976 deaths to the CDC?
Or about Pfizer clinical trial data showing 1,223 deaths, 158,000 adverse events, and 1,291 side effects in the first 90 days?
JOHN: Adverse effects happen anytime you stimulate an immune response. That’s been known and is largely accepted as a reasonable risk because whichever disease you’re protecting about is gonna have even worse adverse effects. This is basic vaxx science.
MAA: Haha, a 300% increase in adverse events, including death, are an acceptable risk in exchange for an absolute risk reduction of 0.84% according to Pfizer’s own data?
This shows mortality rates reported to CDC following injections for all vaccines since 1990. See anything weird starting in 2021?
JOHN: Yes. COVID has killed over 6 million worldwide, and injured millions more. Non-vaxxed suffer wildly unequally.
There are medical professionals hired to make these calls and thank heavens for them. When housewives in Oregon get ahold of raw data they can’t interpret, well….
MAA: No, COVID *policies* have killed millions via murderous protocols like remdesivir and intubation/ventilation paired with the denial of life-saving early treatment protocols, which threaten the EUAs that gave BigPharma immunity from liability. Plus inflated death counts from fraudulent PCR tests and counting deaths “with” not “from” COVID.
Oh yes, shut down our minds and let the “experts” tell us what to think because we mustn’t worry our pretty heads about what BigPharma doesn’t want us to see. What a perfectly behaved little Covidian cult follower you are, enslaved to your bamboozlers.
“Non-vaxxed suffer wildly unequally.” Umm, no, that’s more propaganda. It’s actually wildly the opposite.
I have updated my January 2022 paper on deaths and hospitalizations correlated with the COVID vaccines, to incorporate recent data from governments in several countries. The COVID vaccines are alarmingly and irredeemably unsafe, as well as ineffective for the advertised purposes. It is increasingly demonstrated by national and state governments, physi…Read more6 days ago · 76 likes · 27 comments · ColleenHuberNMD
JOHN: “a naturopathic medical doctor.”
MAA: I would have cited the inventor of mRNA technology, but such a comprehensive smear campaign has been levied against him (remember the Vioxx hit list for doctors that exposed its dangers?), I knew you would immediately shut it down.
JOHN: I acknowledge it. I click every link you post. It’s nonsense.
Homeopathy is nonsense, too. It’s been discredited since… forever, so the only path for those quacks is to try to discredit actual science and doctors, which is where you come in. You’ve been taken by charlatans.
MAA: I agree with you about homeopathy being bunkum. Way to create a straw man and knock it down since it has nothing to do with this discussion.
JOHN: You linked to two different substacks by homeopathic doctors.
MAA: Colleen Huber is a naturopath, not a homeopath. I don’t know whom you’re referring to as the second one.
JOHN: Oh sorry, totally different.
MAA: Thank you.
JOHN: Do you think there could be an extremely obvious, Occams Razor reason mortality rates are up?
MAA: To deny it is delusional.
JOHN: I don’t deny it. Mortality rates are up. There is a pandemic running rampant and largely unopposed. Not complicated
MAA: Then how come mortality rates only started skyrocketing in January 2021 after the rollout of the global mass injection experiment?
JOHN: Vaccine rollout ended most lockdown measures.
MAA: So you at least acknowledge that your expert-recommended lockdown measures caused fatalities and harm, that’s something. Now how do you explain places that locked down during 2021 but still saw record-high mortality rates?
JOHN: Check overall deaths. It’s gonna blow your mind. Again, the argument isn’t that the vaccine is perfect, it’s that it’s a much better alternative than rushing COVID. The data back that up.
Your inability to understand scientific data is the problem here.
MAA: Oh, thanks for reminding me! Overall deaths ARE mind-blowing. Life insurance companies around the world are reporting historically unprecedented mortality rates (non-COVID), such as a 40% increase for the 18–64 age group—a 12-sigma event.
Your unwillingness to acknowledge data that contradicts your belief system is the problem and yet another indication that you have fallen prey to charlatans of the Covidian cult.
“If you want to save your child from polio, you can pray or you can inoculate. … Choose science.” —Carl Sagan
MAA: Great example of how you’ve been bamboozled! You were deceived into believing these gene therapy transfections are “vaccines” so you would conflate them with historical vaccines and “trust the Science™.” See how easy it is to control you when you don’t parse language!
Bayer’s Head of Pharma Stefan Oelrich brags about how easily you were suckered into this bait-and-switch:
“If we had surveyed 2 years ago if people were willing to take gene or cell therapy and inject it into your body, we would have probably had a 95% refusal rate.”

JOHN: Oh, I see. Where did you go to medical school again?
MAA: That’s right, resort to appeal to authority because engaging in critical thinking, analysis, and independent thought are all verboten in the Covidian cult.
JOHN: Why would you be so opposed to a bill that bans COVID disinformation? There’s none of that going on here.
MAA: Good point. It’d be nice if governments were prohibited from using psychological warfare/disinformation campaigns against its own citizens.
