Ah, we almost never hear about Larry Page do we?
New Zealand has been notoriously difficult for people to enter during the pandemic, but not for billionaire Larry Page.
The 48 year old Google co-founder has reportedly been given a special visa to live in New Zealand, and this special visa has caused an uproar.
This is the epitome of something we point out constantly: these billionaires and the government officials on their payrolls are creating a legal caste system.
They are allowed to globetrot, while the rest of us are fed censored information, forced to lockdown, and pressured into willingly giving our bodies over to medical experimentation via Covid vaccines.
Here’s what people are saying about Page’s recent special permissions:
Rules for thee, but not for me. Billionaires and the government elite can prance around as they please, but you? Lockdowns are what they are saying you need. https://t.co/EBqYtk835z#LarryPage #COVID19

The Epoch Times took note of the special visa granted to Page:
The handling of the billionaire’s entry into the country has since stoked a debate over special immigration privileges, with some lawmakers questioning why Page’s request was approved so quickly at a time when borders to non-residents were shut down in an attempt to stop the spread of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, along with other questions, like separated family members who pleaded the government to enter the country but got turned away.
“The government is sending a message that money is more important than doctors, fruit pickers, and families who are separated from their children,” ACT deputy leader Brooke van Velden said in a statement.
Little responded to lawmakers that the family had abided by applicable pandemic protocols when they arrived, noting that his residency was approved about three weeks after his arrival.

More details were provided by Daily Mail:
Health minister Andrew Little was interrogated about the visit in parliament, saying that an application was approved in January for a child, accompanied by an adult, to be medically evacuated from Fiji.
He said anyone accepted for treatment is considered to require immediate care and could not be treated locally.
‘I’m advised all of the normal steps occurred in this case,’ Little said.
Ardern said she was not briefed at the time Page was in New Zealand.
Immigration New Zealand general manager of border and visa operations, Nicola Hogg, told AFP that Page ‘met relevant requirements’ to be approved entry.
