Grasping the ‘addiction’ angle of media, the Diversity-Inclusion-Equity Industrial Complex (DIE) has created many voices, some have gone on to attract thousands of followers and millions of hits (views, not punches). And ‘hits’ can lead to celebrity. And celebrity can be monetized – speaking engagements, writing assignments, training deals, book deals, endorsements, and social media ads! And the DIE celebrities can tell their addicted followers to boycott. This creates another opportunity. The celebrities can negotiate with the newly identified offenders, and extract a little ransom.
Thus corporate America, which wants to sell its stuff and fluff, soon wants to do anything to ascend to the social justice nirvana of DIE by buying its way out. In this way, organizers, grifters, and corporate executives have joined together and a movement of ‘DIE hearts’ was born. This group is now more important than all past opinion-shaping institutions such as journals, television, and government institutions. And they are funded better than a Black Lives Matter executive buying a second or third home in the Hollywood Hills for cash.
But a funny thing happened on America’s path to social justice and the grand authoritarian utopia that awaits. Pilots and truckers, nurses and teachers, parents and air traffic controllers, … hesitated. Then some started to become ill and called in sick. Some of the worst cases began to attend school board meetings and object. And, the most serious cases began to ask questions, even about how votes in local and national elections were gathered and nursed by Silicon Valley largesse (i.e. Facebook).
These strays are breaking rank. But what is more, they are ill. But not from Covid. They are becoming ill from all the rules, the scolding, and the demands they wear a mask and stand back 6 feet after they began to realize this was not working. Many feel a fever from having to shutter their businesses or churches, losing their jobs, being subjected to Critical Race Theory Training, enduring Diversity indoctrination classes, seeing the deterioration of public schools, being reported by their neighbors, undergoing vaxxing and re-vaxxing with vaccines that sort of worked, called out as racist or prejudiced when they asked questions, producing vax passports, and facing CANCELLING, termination, loss of livelihood, and relegation to inconsequence.
These inconsequential people suddenly began to realize that what was happening to them – loss of life, liberty, and happiness – was profound and gathering speed. And thus, their disease appeared. This disease was in fact not dreamed up in the cushy, $70,000 a year college campuses with their fancy idea labs or incubators that promote gain of dysfunction. Rather, it emerged in reaction to such ideas. Therefore having sprung from the people, it is truly a novel virus. A Who’s WHO of American Elite labeled it “Knowledge Now! It’s Finally Enough. 2021” or KNIFE21.
Some of the first cases may have shown up in France a few years back as farmers and workers turned a yellow hue when they wore their work vests to protest. They were protesting the authoritarian dictates of the Euro-elite that placed the burden of compliance to achieve perfect economic harmony upon them. But that was mostly economics. KNIFE21 is after all novel … unique. However, the few scientists who still actually follow the scientific method believe it might be traced to prior viruses, some dating back to as early as the late 18th century in colonial America, or perhaps even earlier to Attica in ancient Greece.
The KNIFE pandemic we now see amongst us is spreading rapidly with an R0 (infection-transmission rate) that is astounding. We are even starting to see an Infection Fatality Rate of this new pandemic emerge as corporate America is dying to figure a way out. One example is Southwest Airlines which struggles to deal with “weather” problems, and loads of pilots who are sick (from KNIFE21 or KNIFE21 sympathies). Southwest blames the President for their condition. However, such blame has not been shown to be an effective treatment for the virus, since the President is a super-spreader of malevolent ideas and malapropisms. Medical professionals do report that early indicators confirm every time a Southwest plane is grounded for a lack of a pilot, Fly-Over Country experiences new outbreaks.
To do his part, the President has announced new directives and is demanding all comply with his experts’ mandates of the day or face huge fines. He had this to say, “I, Illinois, I am from Scranton,… you all knew that. I grew up in Delaware, Pennsylvania.” To avoid infection, he immediately left the room and caught the Amtrak to Wilmington without taking any questions. To replace the President while he is on sabbatical, Acting President Benito Fauci issued a statement:
“Wear a mask, don’t wear a mask, get a vaccination or two or three. Remember, contracting Covid leaves no proven immunity per the CDCNAAIDWHOPRC. So the vaccinated are at risk from the unvaccinated – let’s call those science deniers out and belittle them. Bullying works. Oh, and also,… Thanksgiving is not happening. Christmas? Fuggedaboutit. There is nothing on the shelves anyway. And buy toilet paper.”
It is feared that KNIFE21, and the Beta variant often referred to as “Brandon”, will soon overwhelm hospitals, congregations, and workplaces – leading to shutdowns. It may even impact Christmas shopping, children’s testing, and their mental health, and the 2024 elections which the President feels might need to be turned over to Mark Zuckerberg to insure the vote is properly turned out and counted. No doubt, this might lead to further infections. Jen Psaki added, “It’s time for the Brandon variant to go.”
Crowds across the land joined with Psaki and responded, “Let’s Go, Brandon!”Published in
