Lying Guardian (Oops I repeat myself) Claims Belgium Is the Only Country in Western Europe Where Democratic Values Were Violated During the Pandemic. Men in white coats are on their way, don’t worry

One thing the pandemic has made abundantly clear is that left-wing media values ‘public health’ (i.e., safetyism) more than civil liberties. Here in Britain, the Guardian editorialised in favour of both the first and second lockdowns, claiming that citizens are “willing to cede their liberties” once the state “takes responsibility”.

However, that newspaper appears to be in denial about its actual priorities. Back in December, it published an article with the rather strange title “Eastern European countries adopting authoritarian measures in face of Covid”.

Why strange? Well, a more accurate title – you’d have thought – would be: ‘Countries adopting authoritarian measures in face of Covid’ (not just Eastern European ones). The article goes on to claim that five of 18 countries in Eastern Europe have seen “major violations” of democratic freedoms, compared to none in Western Europe.

That seems odd. Didn’t every Western European country other than Sweden have a lockdown that involved forced closures of schools and businesses, and in some cases mandatory stay-at-home orders too? They may have done, but lockdowns apparently don’t count as “democratic violations”.

The Guardian included a map showing the distribution of “democratic violations” across Europe (see below). It features the truly remarkable statement: “Belgium was the only western country where people’s freedoms were moderately violated.”

And note that, according to the map, democratic freedoms were violated more in Sweden than in Austria – which had two protracted lockdowns with months of stay-at-home orders, and even considered mandatory vaccination.
