BuzzFeedUK Science Editor Kelly Oakes, the editor behind the reprehensible tweet, was quickly called out by a swarm of people — in multiple languages.

Approximately 100 million people are believed to have been killed by Communist regimes across the globe.

In The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression, Stéphane Courtois estimates the number of people killed by Communism as follows:

  • 65 million in the People’s Republic of China
  • 20 million in the Soviet Union
  • 2 million in Cambodia
  • 2 million in North Korea
  • 1.7 million in Ethiopia
  • 1.5 million in Afghanistan
  • 1 million in the Eastern Bloc
  • 1 million in Vietnam
  • 150,000 in Latin America
  • 10,000 deaths “resulting from actions of the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power.”

Economic historian Michael Ellman has argued that the book’s estimate of “at least 500,000” deaths during the Soviet famine of 1946–48 “is formulated in an extremely conservative way, since the actual number of victims was much larger.” He believes there may have been as many as 1,500,000 deaths, which means the estimates could be higher than Courtois’ estimation.

Though Oakes is a science editor at BuzzFeed, she also dabbles in political content and news. According to her bio on LinkedIn, she has “reported on topics from Brexit to air pollution to ADHD and written essays, quizzes and lists on topics from being a woman in physics to the heat death of the universe.”

The Imperial College London graduate’s most recent article is titled, “13 Weird Facts That Will Make You Say “Huh, Interesting.”

Fairfield University Will Force Students to Take Mandatory COVID-19 Tests in Order to Attend Class

Published

on

Fairfield University has announced its plans to be operational for the fall semester amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, tossing the privacy rights of students completely to the wayside.

“As Fairfield University plans to Bring its Stags Home for the fall 2020 semester, a safe return to campus life is our most important priority. We want to make sure our community members have all the information they need to maintain the vibrancy of our campus life but do so as safely as possible,” Fairfield University wrote in an email to their student body.

The university plans to force students to report their health data and submit it into an invasive cell phone app, monitor themselves for any close contact with individuals who have the virus, wear masks at all times while attending class, and subject themselves to mandatory COVID-19 testing to be allowed on campus.

Journalist Alex Berenson noted Fairfield’s proposed plans in a Twitter post, highlighting the absurdity and apparent illegality of the scheme:

Berenson has drawn attention to how the COVID-19 pandemic is adversely impacting children, who are losing educational opportunities and having their rights systemically violated because of mass hysteria.

Big League Politics has reported on the growing mass exodus from public schools that has resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic:

A recent poll of over twenty one hundred voters is showing that the future of public schools could be in great jeopardy when communities and states come out of lockdowns across the nation.

A survey of 2,122 registered voters by RealClear Opinion Research shows that support for educational choice is very strong, and that a plurality of parents are more likely to pursue homeschooling opportunities after COVID-19 lockdowns end.

The polling results show that 40% of families are more likely to homeschool or virtual school after lockdowns, and that 64% support school choice.

John Schilling who serves as the president of the American Federation for Children had this to say about the stunning results of the survey:

“Every single family with kids in school has been incredibly disrupted by the lockdowns. With fifty five million students no longer in their normal educational setting, families are clearly considering new options and many are seeing the benefits of homeschooling and virtual schooling. This is the time for leadership and for desperately needed bold reforms to be implemented across our K-12 education system.”

Homeschooling may be the only way for parents to protect their children from the Big Brother “solutions” to the COVID-19 pandemic in the classroom.
