Former New York Times journalist Bari Weiss lampooned the U.S. government’s draconian pubic health responses to COVID, claiming that its continuous lockdowns and restrictions will be remembered as a “catastrophic moral crime.”
Weiss, who resigned from the Times in 2020, forcefully condemned the COVID hysteria during a Friday appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”
“I’m done. I’m done with COVID,” Weiss proclaimed, prompting the audience to erupt in applause and cheers.
“We were told you get the vaccine, you get the vaccine and you get back to normal. And we haven’t gotten back to normal. And it’s ridiculous at this point,” she said.
“I know that so many of my liberal and progressive friends are with me on this and they do not want to say it out loud because they are scared to be called anti-vaxxed or to be called science deniers or to be smeared as a Trumper,” Weiss explained.
“Most importantly, that this is going to be remembered by the younger generation as a catastrophic moral crime,” Weiss argued. “People are killing themselves. They’re anxious, they’re depressed, they’re lonely. That is why we need to end it.”
Weiss had announced her departure from the Times in a scathing resignation letter accusing the paper of “constant” ideological “bullying”, and submission to woke practices.
