Louise Hampton, who works for Care UK, posted a video on Facebook stating that the COVID call center has been “dead” since the virus first spread in January.
In the recording, Hampton flashes the certificate that NHS (National Health Service) awarded her and sarcastically reads what it says:
“This certificate certifies that Louise Hampton made a difference to patients. NHS COVID-19 Response. THANK YOU.”
She claims the call center has received no calls, and thus the certificate is a load of bollocks (load of shit.)
“We are aware of this video, which we consider to be materially inaccurate in a number of ways, and can confirm that a member of staff is subject to investigation,” a spokesperson for Care UK said.
“We expect all our colleagues and services to support the work of the NHS in giving the public the right information and support during the pandemic. Our call centres were, in fact, exceptionally busy, handling a peak of 400% more calls than usual. Our teams showed huge commitment and dedication in delivering the service, and we have rightly thanked them for the efforts they have made.”
Despite the BBC (and other news outlets) rushing to debunk her claim as a “conspiracy theory,” Hampton has received support from large numbers of people on social media, including many NHS workers.
The BBC has sought to discredit her by alleging she’s a QAnon “conspiracy theorists”; the UK-based news outlet, however, has not attempted to retrieve call logs or other evidence that would refute her claims.
QAnon adherents believe that the U.S. is controlled by a cabal of child sex trafficking, Democratic elites intent on bringing down President Trump. Followers also believe that Dr. Anthony Fauci and other elites have manufactured the coronavirus to sabotage Trump’s presidency. The group has young and old followers from different socioeconomic backgrounds, races, and ethnicities.
Kamala Harris Claims She’s Been a Staunch Advocate for Sexual Abuse Victims, Especially Children. As San Francisco’s District Attorney, However, She Refused to File Charges Against a Single Catholic Priest. This, Despite the Pervasive Problem of Pedophilia and Child Sex Abuse Among Catholic Church Clergy.
Harris’ Predecessor, Terence Hallinan, Had Zealously Pursued These Cases, Opening Numerous Investigations Into Predatory Catholic Priests.
Once Harris Became D.A., She Not Only Halted Investigations Into Clergy Members But Also Refused to Release Any Existing Investigative Files on Clerical Sex Abuse to Survivors, Reporters, and Activists.
Blacklisted. Censored. Punished. This is what happens when you don’t show complete allegiance to liberal ideologies and movements, such as Black Lives Matter. In today’s hypersensitive political climate, people are scorned and rebuked for deviating from prevailing orthodoxies. This knee-jerk reaction to call someone a “racist” or “bigot” is intolerant because it forces people into silent submission.
The rise of social media has made it possible for citizen journalists and others (without huge platforms and power) to voice their opinions and concerns about critical issues. But now, people are hesitant to express their opinion for fear they’ll be scoffed at, or scorned by some in power. Powerful journalists, writers, and academicians are defining the boundaries when it comes to debating issues, making it clear that crossing certain boundaries can have serious consequences, such as job loss.
David Shor, Emmanuel Cafferty, and Harald Uhlig are just some of the casualties of “cancel culture.” David Shor, a data analyst and progressive, cited a research study suggesting that nonviolent protests are more effective than violent protests.
He was fired.
Emmanuel Cafferty, a truck driver, had his arm hanging from outside his truck and was cracking his knuckles. Another driver misinterpreted this as a “white supremacist” gesture since it looked like he was making an “Okay” hand sign, which has been appropriated as a symbol meaning “white power.”
Nonetheless, he was fired.
Harald Uhlig, a professor of economics and editor of the Journal of Political Economy, tweeted criticism of the BLM movement’s push to defund the police. Soon, a petition–with 500 signers–demanded his removal from the editoral board of the Journal. The University of Chicago didn’t bend under the pressure of the powerful signatories; instead, they investigated the allegation impartially and concluded that Uhlig didn’t engage in any discriminatory conduct.
He survived the mob and remains on the editorial board.
Recently, a group of prominent journalist, writers, and academicians signed a letter, published in Harper’s magazine, that ostensibly supports free speech and encourages open debate and discourse. Let’s hold the signers of the Harper’s letter accountable and ensure that they don’t demonize those with opposing viewpoints or ideologies.
Try suing over their lack of proper response, and you find the Department of Justice not encouraging federal agencies to abide by federal law, but instead using lawyers to defend the withholding of the information.
