We took forever to call Coronavirus an epidemic. It is even worse than that because it should be considered under the auspices of the crime of genocide.
I will share my reasons why I think we should invoke the term ‘genocide’ for the large-scale Coronavirus deaths. Genocide is a more accurate and appropriate description.
What the people behind COVID-19 and those in power like Trump, Bolsonaro, Magufuli, and Nkurunziza have done is murder.
Powerful, rich people have always expressed specific intent to wipe out certain populations. That alone is one of the warning signs of genocide. They have publicly been quoted talking about wiping out entire races, ethnic groups, or religious sects. How many times have we had nuclear threats? And those are just the instances we hear of. A lot more of these threats never make it to the headlines.
It is time we investigate everyone’s involvement in the making of Coronavirus and call it what it is: ‘a genocide’. In reality, a form of a deception called misdirection is at play. It has been used to distract and divert our attention to survival, the lockdown, and the economy.
In reality, just like the Rwandan genocide and the Holocaust, certain groups of people are facing extinction due to Coronavirus. Genocides are a progressive process and not just sudden, isolated events. Fears of genocide are not exaggerated and it may be too late if we don’t act now.
As expected, powerful people in power like dictator presidents had a role-play in the containment or spread of the virus. Countries like Uganda and Rwanda got it right. However, people’s compliance may have been due to the fear of Kagame and Museveni’s authoritarian states.
Beyond the people who created and released Coronavirus, actions of some presidents show intent that constitutes genocide.
Based on these sociopathic tyrants Coronavirus Response, these dictators are responsible for people’s deaths. President Jair Bolsonaro in Brazil, Trump in the U.S., Pierre Nkurunziza in Burundi, Magufuli in Tanzania, and others. They should all be charged for manslaughter. Perhaps even murder as we separately look into their crime of genocide. That is the only way to prevent such atrocities from happening again in the future.
The conversation reported that Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro tested positive for coronavirus. This was just recently on July 7 after showing mild symptoms. Ironically, he had denied the pandemic’s severity and ridiculed social distancing,
Bolsonaro is one of 1.9 million confirmed COVID-19 victims in coronavirus-wracked Brazil. But as a white, wealthy, and powerful man, he is not a member of the most hard-hit group. Data shows that Black Brazilians and Indigenous people are getting sick and dying at much higher rates.
The death rate among Brazil’s indigenous people and Amazon tribes has soared. Today, it has reached 12.6% compared to 6.5% in the rest of the country. This comes after two years of Jair Bolsonaro’s tyrannic environmental policies. Salgado, a journalist who documented Rwanda’s 1994 genocide, warned that the 300,000 indigenous people in the Brazilian Amazon faced annihilation. Bolsonaro has started withholding COVID-19 Data causing even more alarm.
COVID-19 is just the latest deadly threat to Indigenous people under Bolsonaro. His policies and rhetoric are so openly hostile that they essentially amount to a campaign of genocide. He has an ongoing case to the International Criminal Court. It alleges that the right-wing leader was “inciting genocide” against Indigenous people.
The situation is dire for the Amazonian Yanomami people. If current trends continue, 5,600 Yanomami – or 40% of their entire population – could become infected with COVID-19. This is according to a report from Brazil’s Indigenous Environmental Institute.
A ‘Genocide’ is defined as the ‘intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such’ through the commission of one of the following acts:
Acts defining a genocide:
- killing members of the group;
- causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
- deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
- imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; or
- forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
In conclusion, there is proof that the Coronavirus pandemic is man-made and should be treated as a Genocide. Was it deliberately released with the specific intent to destroy a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group?
