This is a sick, sick society that would force an experimental gene therapy on its young for an illness that affects them less than the flu. The long-term effects of this gene therapy are unknown. There’s reason to believe it might affect fertility and give rise to a host of autoimmune disorders.
Of course, the young are incredible putzes, too. They should get together and blow the campus into smithereens for this kind of thing. But this is a defanged, infantilized generation. Unless their mommies protest, nothing will happen.
The “limited exceptions” listed in the message are, of course, the children of the rich donors. The same ones who have been attending normal schools while the children of the serfs sat in Zoom jail.
Anybody who feels the need to start on with “but other vaccines” is kindly asked not to bother. If you still need an explanation of why this isn’t like “the other vaccines,” you should seek it elsewhere.
People were talking, laughing, and making quesadillas in the hallway in front of my office today. It was so beautiful I almost cried.
Do they really want the viewers – the vast majority of whom will be white – to decide that the color of their skin is an important part of who they are?
I don’t think this was thought through very well.
Kids absolutely ask these questions – although they do so at an age where it’s way too early for them to watch TV – and a not-entirely-brain-dead parent can answer them with ease. And without channeling Mein Kampf, like this cartoon does.
Also, the whole narrative of “Trump radicalized them. They will become sweet, lovely bunnies without him” is ludicrous. It assigns Trump powers that neither he nor any human being possesses.
As adults, we aren’t molded by the situations we experience. We react to these situations with what’s already there. Nobody can extract shit from us if shit isn’t already there. Moreover, the shit will spill out irrespective of the situations that arise.
By providing a justification for the spilling of shit – Trump made them do it, the economy made them do it, the recession of 2008-9 made them do it – we ensure that the spillage will never stop.
As every parent knows, rewarding bad behavior doesn’t make that behavior go away. To the contrary, it makes bad behavior permanent. Another thing we all know is that if a kid throws a tantrum because he wants a new toy, giving in and buying the toy doesn’t make the kid happy. It makes the tantrum worse.
And it works the same with adults. Give an abusive, vicious person what she wants, and she doesn’t become sweet. She becomes even nastier and more demanding.
I find this mentality completely incomprehensible. How is giving radicals power supposed to make them less radical? This is insane.
Radicals are by nature insatiable. The more you give, the angrier they get.
This guy probably gave his lunch money to bullies at school in hopes that they would like him in return and become sweet and kind.
