The aforementioned amnesty was put forward by Brown University professor Emily Oster, an aggressive proponent of Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdowns. In an article for the Atlantic magazine, she suggested a "truce" in the form of putting away all the terrible pandemic decisions.
Oster urged people to forgive and forget all the COVID-19 public health mandates – such as lockdowns, school closures and mask mandates – and their resulting damage to people's lives. This, she continued, was because people "were in the dark about COVID-19."
"Let's acknowledge that we made complicated choices in the face of deep uncertainty, and then try to work together to build back and move forward," she appealed. (Related: Forgive and forget? The Atlantic says Americans should just move on like nothing happened after three years of covid lies.)
This did not sit well with Smith. "Forget how we were made into just the worst people ever, just horrific monsters of human beings? Let's just forget how we all got turned into murderous automatons?" he asked.
The host also disagreed with Oster's stance about people being "in the dark" about COVID-19, given that there had been various sources based on actual science that proved the mandates were fraudulent.
Evidence also emerged proving the collusion of the mainstream media, tech companies and the federal government to suppress all information going against the COVID-19 narrative.
Smith cited a video on Twitter where a son sitting six feet apart from his father suddenly rushed to him. The child put his arm around his parent because the father broke down after his wife's passing. "But the funeral director comes rushing in to ask them to separate from one another," the host said.
"It's just like – what makes somebody yell at a son soothing his grieving father? That little humanity left has been driven out by the propaganda."
Smith was not alone in his criticism of Oster's proposal to consider COVID-19 medical tyranny and its resulting damage as water under the bridge.
The Daily Sceptic's Michael Senger also blasted the suggestion, saying: "You don't get to advocate policies that do extraordinary harm to others against their wishes, then say 'We didn't know any better at the time.'"
He pointed out that ignorance is definitely not an excuse when the "policies involved abrogating fellow citizens' rights under an indefinite state of emergency while censoring and canceling those who weren't as ignorant." Senger added that the result would surely be a society in which ignorance and obedience to the opinion of the mob would be the only safe position.
Matthew J. Peterson, senior fellow at the Claremont Institute in California, also mocked Oster's piece in a Twitter thread.
"Hey, sorry you lost your job [because] of the [vaccine] that doesn't work, your grandmother died alone and you couldn't have a funeral, your brother's business was needlessly destroyed and your kids have weird heart problems. But let's just admit we were all wrong and call a truce, eh?" Peterson wrote.
"Yes, we said unvaccinated people should die and not get healthcare, while never questioning Big Pharma once. But we are compassionate people – which is why even though we shut down the entire economy, we also bankrupted the nation and caused inflation. You're welcome! Let's be friends."
Peterson ultimately issued an advise to voters: "Remember what the [Democrats] did to you. They never apologized, and they don't plan on it. Nov. 8, make them – all of them – regret it."
