Are you ready for the Dems’ next panicdemic? According to the increasingly mush-brained “child lover” in the White House, you better be. And, you’d better be happy with giving him and his fellow Dems more money or you’re all going die to along with your children.
Yeah, I guess I’m ready for it. Sure, I was really hoping that we’d begin to start seeing people’s faces again, but I’ a guy and I’m sort of OK with being expected to look at a woman’s face as almost an afterthought. 😉
Of course I also understand that the other part of Biden’s preparatory statement about the next panicdemic is based upon the fact that Americans are poised to retake the House and probably the Senate. I’m ready as anyone who needs to earn a living can be at this time to deal with the fact that State and Local politicians in Dem-controlled zones will do their best to hammer at basic liberties and the economy in order to ensure that American politicians can’t revive our economy and bring our nation back to some semblance of normalcy, growth, and prosperity for those who earn it.
Remember when that jabbering Kenyan, Obama described half or more of Americans as bitterly clinging to our God and our guns? Well, that was then and this is now. And now, there’s a whole new breed of bitter clingers, ones who are truly deplorable in many, if not all, ways.
These days it’s the Left – specifically, the titularly White Millennials and Gen Zers – who are bitterly clinging to COVID-19 and the Democrat politicians resultant power grab and power trip.
They’re Clinging To Masks Like Safety Blankets
And boy, do they cling to their masks. Even with their own politicians reducing the requirement for mask wearing to suggestions in most places, the Leftists are still wearing them and still vilifying those who are “abiding by what the CDC and those politicians set forth.”
Those masks aren’t just virtual signalling anymore for those sorts. It’s now an identification badge and ingrained in their subculture.
But… As one can see above, that’s not all bad. There are times when one could just think of it as a kink and our new niqabis do look fine… well, what you can see of them. 😉
They’re Clinging To Their Homes Like Hikikomori
And, even more so than their masks, they’re clinging to their homes like Japan’s Hikikomori. They do not want to leave their domicile. They certainly don’t want to go to an office and work like most people used to, though that might have more to do with their sense of entitlement and confusion about capitalism and their places within it than anything else. Like Climate Change and Equity – previously termed Equality – the pandemic may for the majority of them just be another excuse for moving forward with their agenda.
But… I like my new businesswear, and I for damn sure think any and all of the dress shirts I bought for wear to the office look a lot better and serve a higher purpose now than they ever did then. 😆
So, in a case of irony gone wild, we have a whole new crop and version of bitter clingers in 2022, and they bear very little resemblance to the 100s of millions of Americans Obama previously declaimed as being such. But, at least we can be thankful that they do carry with them some varieties of secondary and/or tangential benefits for us all.
We’ve endured over two years of the Coronavirus pandemic and panicdemic – and certain sorts are committed to keeping it alive for much longer. So, I believe it’s time to take a look at the one group that has, at the same time, been the most and least impacted by China’s plague upon the world – science fiction and fantasy fandom’s Cosplayers.
Cosplayers, many of whom are very focused upon this, were devastated by the disease. Almost all of the venues where they gather were closed and many have not and likely will not reopen. And, on top of that, the general economic scouring caused by the government’s response to COVID-19 gutted a lot of cosplayers and those in cosplays supporting industries ability to participate. So yes, they were in many respects the most impacted group.
On the other hand, they were in some ways the least impacted group. It was and is no stretch or hardship to add a mask to almost any cosplay outfit… assuming, of course, that the outfit doesn’t already include one! 😆
Beauty In The CWO Will Be Different But Still Beauty
We might as well get used to the COVID World Order (CWO). Within America’s borders at least there’s just too many people mentally, emotionally, and “morally” invested in the COVID-19 pandemic continuing on for the foreseeable future for there to be any avoiding it. The same sorts who’ve internalized Identity Politics have made the disease a pillar of their identities for there to be any other outcome.
So, let’s get used to our new beauty standards. And hey, they’re not that bad at all. 😉 Though, public indecency and wardrobe malfunctions are going to change in nature if not in either opprobrium or prurient interest.
Some – a steadily growing, large minority, actually – people are more than fed up with government-mandated mask laws and they’re quite creative in the protests. 😉 And yeah, very little should get the point across to the would-be tyrants and their “virtuous” cadres better than a Xenomorph Facehugger mask.
Some Of These Peaceful Protests Are More Eye-Catching Than Others
Of course, others have taken a far more beautiful and eye-catching means of protesting mask mandates, much to the pleasure and titillation of right-thinking people across our great, if beleaguered nation.
