Even as the Lamestream Media finally tries to end the COVID-19 pandemic so as not to tarnish the Democrats’ regime, there are many on the left that are little more than zombies groaning for us to wear masks, wash our damn hands, and stay locked away in our homes. Insofar as they’re concerned, the coronavirus is forever and this is our new normal. Indeed, those sorts seem to like the pandemic and all the restrictions and resulting damages that have been wrought upon our nation and its economy.
Personally, I think that these Leftards’ attachment to COVID-19 and the various draconian measures taken in Democrat Controlled Zones is primarily based upon a synergy of four things: Martyr Complex, Virtue Signalling, Vilification, and, like so much else, TURDS.
The majority of the titularly White Leftists have serious martyr complexes, especially the overly-pampered-and-entitled-from-birth Millennials. Lacking any real threats and privation other than those they’ve brought upon themselves, they tend to actively seek out those things which are against their self-interest. Hence, their fondness for the destructive and draconian plague mitigation efforts fit right into this and feed their need to be harmed.
As in most sociopolitical matters in 21st century America, the Liberal and Progressive sorts are very much into virtue signaling. Even the ones that don’t fully support and need to be martyred for The Cause – and that’s whatever the current cause of the moment is – are going to vocally, if not materially, support the anti-COVID measures and their perpetual or near-perpetual continuance. It’s just another way for them to Identify and Flag, both to signal their membership in- and allegiance to their in-group and to avoid persecution for heresy from the same.
And, of course, zombies need brains to eat, martyrs need oppressors, in-groups need out-groups, and the sorts who support the Dems in these times need people to hate, fear, revile, and castigate. They need “evil” to harm themselves fighting against. Hence, they attack any and all who won’t abide by their rulers’ mandates. Hence, they frame it as protecting others and as an act of caring and attack their opposition as callous monsters.
TURD (Trump Unacceptance & Resistance Disorder) – Trite in these times but true, the real pandemic afflicting the Liberal and Progressive camps is TURDS. Their response to the coronavirus and the destruction of the economy and basic liberty that Democrat politicians used the disease to enact can be traced, at least partially, to their pathological hatred and fear of President Trump and every single American who voted for him. Our President downplayed COVID-19’s severity, knowing that panic would cause more harm than the virus; therefore, in the disease-rotted minds of the COVID zombies, it’s apocalyptic and no countermeasures – especially ones that are harmful to the nation’s and people’s futures – are too extreme.
So, be ready for this to be a “long haul.” The COVID zombies aren’t going to easily and complacently allow the “pandemic” to end any time soon. At best, they’ll seek an accommodation – a “new normal” where “public safety” wins out over liberty.
Hellfire, the only bright side is that these zombies absolutely won’t be shuffling down the street looking for a snack. 😆
