The government has taken down a social media ad which urged people to stay at home. The image showed women home schooling children and doing domestic chores, while the only man featured is seen to be relaxing on a sofa. Snowflakes have been in meltdown on Twitter. Progressive screams are very shrill. The image went viral on social media and Karen lost her mind. “It’s sexist!” she screamed. “Take it down!” Karen gets her way a lot these days, presumably because governments are increasingly using social media to take society’s temperature.
The government said that the ad did “not reflect” its “view on women”. So why spend a considerable sum of money on an ad campaign only to buckle when a few hundred keyboard warriors pipe up? Why give in to them? That’s a good question and it needs addressing. Cancel Culture is a huge problem, but it’s for another day.
The irony of course is that there’s no outrage or condemnation of the “Stay At Home” message itself. “That ad is sexist!” Maybe it is, but it’s also part of a campaign of psychological warfare being waged on all of us by a totalitarian government. These ads are deployed to convince us that we’re at the mercy of a plague, which is nonsense.
The purpose of this propaganda is to convince us that we should do ourselves significant and lasting harm, in order to protect the vulnerable. A children’s mental health epidemic is looming, thousands are dying because lifesaving treatments have been delayed or cancelled, millions of people are losing their jobs and civil liberties are being eroded at warp speed. But none of that seems to matter.
Seemingly, you can tell us to commit economic suicide, wreck our children’s futures, abandon our elderly and live under house arrest. Just take care that the message isn’t sexist, homophobic, transphobic, misogynistic or designed by an ejaculator, a cisgender or a TERF………….
