At El American’s Idiot of the Week, we give no respite in the battle against idiocy, not even at Christmas. This week the award goes to the director-general of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom, who has asked to cancel Christmas.

Tedros Adhanom, a biologist by training, has given free rein to his concerns as a rhapsodist and in an unprecedented lyrical display, has left us a phrase that would make Ricardo Arjona himself blush: “A canceled event is better than a canceled life. Better to cancel now and celebrate later, than to celebrate now and cry tomorrow.”

Paulo Coelho’s “do-gooders” seems to be the philosophical reference of this organization of scientists. The WHO’s management of the pandemic has apparently been based on showering occurrences that change on the fly or are contradictory, but what is really serious about this whole situation is that these occurrences are serving as an excuse for almost all the governments of the world to advance in their restrictive and authoritarian measures.

Oh, what a coincidence! These restrictions always intensify when Christmas comes. It seems that almost all international organizations and governments, which always want to appear to be very tolerant and inclusive, are not so tolerant and inclusive when it comes to imposing restrictions on religious celebrations, focusing almost exclusively on demolishing Christmas.

Christmas, which has always been the exaltation par excellence of values such as unity, mutual respect, tolerance and thinking of others; after being put through the blender of the social engineering of the WHO and governments, and with the inestimable collaboration of the media -fears-, it becomes the division of vaccinated and unvaccinated, families afraid to get together, and even with internal confrontations, grandparents afraid of their grandchildren, and children deprived of any illusion.

Joe Biden follows the same line as Tedros Adhanom

In line with Tedros Adhanom’s WHO, the Biden White House—the one who was going to bring back the unity of Americans and a government for all—has issued a Christmas statement even more somber than the one pronounced by Tedros Adhanom, in which he congratulates the vaccinated and threatens the unvaccinated.

“For the unvaccinated, a winter of serious illness and death awaits you, your families and the hospitals that you will soon overwhelm.” Take unity and government for all.

That the WHO and its acolytes have such a grudge against Christmas and the values it represents but are docile and subservient to other “sensibilities”, makes Tedros Adhanom the rightful winner of El American’s Idiot of the Week.

Don’t pay too much heed to Tedros Adhanom’s ripostes, and don’t cancel your family celebrations for fear of Omicron. Better to celebrate now than later, as “15 days to flatten the curve” may turn into several years.
