Rabbi Hillel Handler from New York City is someone I first got to know in 2013 when he was speaking out against the forced vaccination of Orthodox Jewish children against measles.
Rabbi Handler had done his own research and he understood the dangers of an untested, unsafe, liability-free vaccine and how our basic liberties were being threatened.
Today in 2020 the government is again threatening our rights.
Early in October the New York Times reported that NYC mayor, Bill DeBlasio was closing schools, restaurants and non-essential businesses in neighborhoods with large numbers of Jewish residents, all this because of reported increases in COVID positive testing. Several hundred Jewish yeshivas are affected by this.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo
blames the Jewish residents for the increase in positive tests, saying, ‘We had the rules. It wasn’t enforced in these areas.’ Now the schools are being closed and religious services are limited to 10 people.
Rabbi Handler was interviewed about the new restrictions on October 6 in a video entitled, New York Rabbi Begs For President Trump To Help Jewish Community
“To kill a person spiritually is worse than to kill him physically.”
Rabbi Handler gave an ominous warning about the government’s mandates limiting religious services, closing schools and forcing people to wear masks.
“What is the purpose of the mask? The purpose of the mask is to get you to comply, to scare you.
“Herman Goering of the Third Reich was asked at the Nuremberg Trial, how did you get the German people to do this terrible, horrible Holocaust?
“He said, ‘It’s easy. You just scare them. You inflict terror.’
“The mask is a tool of terror. You look around you, everyone is wearing a mask. Oh God! Our lives are in danger. We have to do whatever the governor says, whatever the mayor says.
“Your mind is frozen, you can’t think straight.
“Who is this governor who cares about us?
“This is a man who made a regulation, an executive order, dictatorial executive order: nursing homes in New York State must take in people from the hospitals who are stricken with COVID 19 and bring them into a population of vulnerable people who are weak, who haven’t got strong immune systems. He was warned by emails from the nursing home operators, you’re going to kill our people! Don’t do it.”
Rabbi Handler explained that Cuomo threaten to remove the licenses of nursing home operators.
“So under blackmail, they followed his orders and forty percent of the deaths in New York State, around 11,000 elderly people, died. Not died, they were murdered, intentionally.”
The rabbi pointed out the hypocrisy of New York Mayor De Blasio ordering lockdowns while promoting mobs of people involved in the Blacks Lives Matter movement.
“If the mayor really and truly believes that social distancing is important, masks are important, why did he address a Black Lives Matter rally in Brooklyn, over a thousand people, packed together like sardines, and the mayor lecturing to them without a mask. If he really thought that they would die, would he have done that? …
“The answer is these politicians know that this mask is bologna, social distancing is bologna…
“The First Amendment gives us religious rights and you can’t simply take away people’s right to practice their religion because of some medical extremism.”
Rabbi Handler commented on the real purpose of COVID positive test results.
“Because of these tests they can go to the media and say, oh, we’re having so many cases and therefore it’s critical, and in the minds of people who are not too knowledgeable, a case means death. …
He continued saying that last winter officials reported on the COVID deaths, now, with fewer people dying, they talk about people testing positive.
He warned that people must stand together and not close down their schools, not surrender their rights.
I asked Rabbi Handler about his comments on governments using fear and he said, “That is how the corrupt CDC gets everyone to follow their insane and deadly vaccine mandates!”
His words about giving up our rights due to fear of a pandemic was a chilling reminder of what medical freedom advocate Robert Kennedy, Jr. said in Berlin in August.
During his remarks at a press conference there on August 28, 2020, Robert Kennedy, Jr. said this about how tyrannical governments use their power and he also cited Goering’s words.
“For many years totalitarian or authoritarian states have used the power of fear to engineer compliance in populations. I grew up understanding what happened in World War II in our country.
“During the Nuremberg Trials, Herman Goering was asked by the prosecutor, how did you make the German people comply? Goering said, it’s not just Germany, this works in any country, whether it’s a fascist country or a communist country or a monarchy or a democracy. All the rulers need to do is to tell the people that there’s something they need to be fearful of. Point a finger at that source of their fear and you can make human beings do anything you want. You can make them go to the slaughter like sheep; you can make them obey.”
He continued making an ominous observation about COVID 19 and government control.
Now they have a source of fear that is the most pervasive, an all-encompassing power that they’ve ever had which is the fear of pandemic.
Governments love pandemics the same way that they love wars because it gives them power; it gives them control and it gives them the capacity to impose obedience on human beings.
Today we have an inflection of new technology that give governments the capacity to impose controls on populations that have never been imagined before in human history by any tyrant in history.
We all need to listen to these two outspoken critics of the government’s overreaching actions. Here in Wisconsin, like many places, Governor Evers has issued his latest executive order that went into effect at 8 a.m. on Thursday, October 8th. Bars and restaurants can only operate at 25 percent capacity.
When we see governors and mayors ruling like despots because of a disease, we should all be concerned about where this is going. I’ve seen where several mainstream national news outlets have announced that the government won’t force anyone to receive a COVID 19 vaccine when it becomes available since there is growing concern over vaccine safety.
The media is really saying is that while the federal government can’t force Americans to be vaccinated, state governments can. Governors like Cuomo and Evers can make school attendance and employment contingent on being vaccinated. Creating fear is the way to set the stage for the next rule that must be enforced in order to end the pandemic: vaccination against COVID 19.
