President of Belarus: COVID Wildly Exaggerated, ‘World Is Going Nuts’

Keeps Country Operating As Normal, Advises Drinking Vodka

The only “dictator” in Europe also the only leader not rushing to crack down on his people’s freedoms on (social) media’s whim

Lukashenko asked about coronavirus: “It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.”

How refreshing. A leader who will actually lead and isn’t a poodle addicted to kneeling before everything, including a glorified cold.

And how ironic, supposedly “Europe’s last dictator” but when the push comes to shove he’s the only one on the entire continent refusing to take advantage of the hysteria to crack down on his people’s freedoms:

[T]hanks to President Alexander Lukashenko, a man who is sometimes referred to as “Europe’s last dictator,” Belarus is the only European country that is still playing soccer.

With Lukashenko insisting that his country should not “panic” like countries in Western Europe, the Belarusian Premier League’s 2020 season began last Thursday as planned, and games are scheduled to be played this weekend.

Though Lukashenko has advised citizens to observe social distancing protocols, he has also suggested the coronavirus is a “psychosis.”

“The civilized world is going nuts. It is absolute stupidity to close state borders,” Lukashenko said last week. “No one is talking about the virus. In the villages, the tractor will heal everyone. The fields heal everyone.” To help combat COVID-19, Lukashenko has recommended having 40–50 grams of vodka daily, frequenting saunas and farm work.

That’s right, it is a psychosis, and an insane and feeble-minded overreaction.

Recently, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko displayed an iron calm, saying, “The most important thing is not to panic.”

The president of the country, where 86 cases have been identified so far, said that they would not take any precautions against the coronavirus, adding, “it happens.”

Lukashenko stated that everyone who came from abroad was tested, saying: “Two to three people a day have been tested positive for the coronavirus. These people are quarantined for 1.5-2 weeks.”

Displaying iron calm? We need some more of that. Calm and rationality — not emotion, hysteria and hype. The stupid feelings of excitable simpletons can’t take precedent before the freedom of entire peoples. And in Belarus’ case, they’re not allowed to.

  1. “It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.” My sentiments exactly!

  2. I want to move there.

  3. He obviously is no Bilderberger!! He never received his marching orders!

  4. It’s better to die on your feet than live on your knees was used in a song by Midnight Oil called “Power and the Passion” a song about government power and the people’s passion. Nearly 40yrs later it is more relevant now than then while the album it was released on was called 10 to 1. After using this line all my life I can honestly say we are probably now at 4 heading into 3 not far from one.
    Gotta luv the fields heal everyone and that thinking is the best of Europe and I’ll go along with iron calm but the last time I felt that I was having a heart attack so maybe a hold fast calm would suit me better.
    No wonder he gets called a dictator by the professionals of the craft this leader talks of don’t panic and keep calm which is blasphemy in the age of injected over stimulation.

  5. This sentence: „better die on your feet than live on your knees” is quite popular in Russian culture, has separate Wikipedia entry: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9B%D1%83%D1%87%D1%88%D0%B5_%D1%83%D0%BC%D0%B5%D1%80%D0%B5%D1%82%D1%8C_%D1%81%D1%82%D0%BE%D1%8F,_%D1%87%D0%B5%D0%BC_%D0%B6%D0%B8%D1%82%D1%8C_%D0%BD%D0%B0_%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%B5%D0%BD%D1%8F%D1%85

    The sentence seems to come from Spanish. They say that it was told by: José Martí, Emiliano Zapata, Dolores Ibárruri, Che Guevara, etc.

    Lukashenko suggests that there was much pressure exerted on him to introduce some kind of martial law in the country but he resisted and greeted Chabad Lubavitch with middle finger.

    Lukashenko is a hero.

  6. This man got some balls and honor. Speaking truth is rare for leaders these times…

  7. Loving all these comments, and so delighted to bits there’s real sanity in this goddam world!!

  8. Belarus should be put on everyone’s visiting list to help their tourism and maybe even our refugee list when things get too hot over here.

  9. Of course Lukashenko is part of the international oligarchy that rules the world. There are no exceptions. Do you think the Belarussian media are less biased on topics like 9/11, moonlanding, fake terror attacks and all the rest?

    Nice to see an exception but it means nothing.

  10. The fact that he allowed 5G infrastructure to be installed in Belarus shows a complete disregard for the safety of his people. It’s proof that he is controlled by the Khazarian Chabad mafia.
