Ignoring his own dictatorial Corona measures: Wolfgang Sobotka. Wikipedia

Above the law: Austrian politicians not subject their own Corona dictates

It has become quite grotesque to see how little their dictatorial measures apply to them: The Austrian ruling class do not have to suffer the consequences of their Corona policies. This was the case when the President of the National Council, Wolfgang Sobotka (ÖVP), flew to a funeral in Italy without a PCR test. In fact, the parliamentary administration had asked the police at Linz Airport not to carry out any Corona checks on Sobotka.

    The Parliamentary Directorate explained Sobotka’s behavior: “The business trips reported by the Parliamentary Directorate by the President of the National Council are not legally subject to the application of the Covid Entry Ordinance”. It was also added that Sobotka was “vaccinated” four times.

    This ridiculous answer does not explain how it was possible to circumvent the 2G+ regulation, which applies to all Austrian citizens, even for “business trips”, but it was simply ignored by the Parliamentary Directorate. While Austrians have been subject to compulsory masks, tests and repeated vaccinations, top politicians can apparently do as they please with impunity.

    Ordinary citizens have shouldered the horror measures taken by the government, such as a series of compulsory dangerous injections, incessant testing and even by wearing several FFP2 masks at once. Even with a 10-fold booster, normal mortals would probably not be able to take a flight without the legally required valid PCR test. A PCR or antigen test is also required for entry into Italy.

    State funeral of vaccinated European Parliament President after immune failure

    Sobotka’s flight to a state funeral in Italy is said to have taken place on January 14. Only now has it become known in the media what had happened at the airport in Hörsching. “Why is Sobotka travelling without Covid control?” border control staff wondered.

    Sobotka was not tested, neither on the flight to the funeral of the President of the European Parliament, David Sassoli , nor on the return flight. Sassoli, who was reportedly previously treated with the experimental shots, suffered pneumonia last September. In January he died at the age of 65 due to the failure of his immune system in an Italian hospital. The progressive Sassoli was an advocate of jabs, had declared a climate emergency at the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2020 and urged “transition”. He had evidently been schooled in the newspeak clichés of Agenda 2030.

    Sobotka is not the only one

    Chancellor Nehammer takes his voters for fools, initially lying about his whereabouts on New Year’s Eve and then about his infection. Twitter

    Sobotka is not the first top politician to attract attention with such privileges in the midst of ever stricter Corona measures. After the New Year, Chancellor Karl Nehammer’s image took a nosedive when it was revealed that he had been partying maskless with dozens of friends crammed in a small ski hut in Carinthia after he had pretended he would skip celebrations because of Omicron. He had vowed to spend the evening alone with his dog.

    The Chancellery insisted that the infection did not take place in the ski hut when Nehammer suddenly tested positive. The photo was taken on December 29, his spokesman Daniel Kosak claimed on Twitter. The infection took place after Nehammer’s return from vacation on Tuesday.

    According to the current state of research, the period between an infection with the Corona virus and its first detectability (latency period) is estimated at 2.5 to 4 days. The Robert Koch Institute (RKI) assumes a latency period of 3 days. A period of 4 to 9 days is assumed until the first symptoms appear (incubation period).

    His unsolicited declaration that he was infected by a security guard on Wednesday evening raised more questions than it answered. As a result, all sorts of special rules suddenly applied to him and his entourage.

    Faking injections

    Already in November, Eva-Maria Himmelbauer (ÖVP) shocked with her attaching a fake vaccination card sticker in broad daylight, during a National Council session. Caught on ORF cameras, she was spotted attaching a vaccination batch sticker to her yellow vaccination card and told Wochenblick that it was a “flu vaccination”.

    When Wochenblick asked for a photo as proof of  her statement, Himmelbauer ignored the request. And even though she was caught red-handed, she has never faced the consequences of her actions. If, on the other hand, Austrian citizens are suspected of cheating with the Corona jab certificates, they have to fear brutal persecution by the authorities and up to two years in prison if they are convicted of falsifying documents.
