My nice older neighbor lady – the one I wrote about a few weeks ago, who finally had enough of being pressured to wear a Facial Burqa by stores and by her friends and stopped doing it and damn the consequences – has given in to the pressure to get jabbed.
As applied by her family.
One of her daughters may end up being responsible for actually killing granny – the exhortation usually directed at the Unburqa’d, who did nothing of the kind – in order to shame them into wearing one.
She exhorted my neighbor, who is also a grandmother, to get the Jab for her sake. Because otherwise she – the daughter – might get the ‘Rona and die, from exposure to her Unburqa’d (and presumably plague-suppurating) mother when she comes to visit her granddaughter . . .or via the granddaughter, who is attending college and stops in to visit her grandma and might bring home the ‘Rona.
My friend had the resilience to say No to stores and friends when it came to the wearing of the Burqa but the family guilt-tripping wasn’t something she could withstand and so she got the Holy Jab.
Even though it might end up killing her, as it already has more than 1,000 people so far – not counting the people who have suffered other “adverse events,” as they are styled.
This is a woman – in her 70s – who does not fear “the virus.” She has told me that even if it were as dangerous and deadly as advertised – which she knows it isn’t, not being as susceptible to fear as her daughter obviously is – she would never allow it to make her live in cringing fear of it because in that case there’s no longer much point to clinging to life, which becomes a mere fact of biology – like a living corpse hooked up to a machine with a flat brain wave – rather than something worth preserving.
Also, she told me that if she did believe the hype, she’d never believe a “mask” – piece of cloth over her face – could protect her, this being as absurd – almost – as believing that a washed car runs better than one that needs a wash.
She’s no fool – and doesn’t suffer fools gladly.
But family pressure did the job. Her own grown children applied the pressure of guilt – and the implied threat of not being allowed to see her grandchildren – to do what “mandates” and signs and friends gone crazy as a result of fear-based trauma conditioning could not.
It brings up the opening scene – brilliantly written and acted – in Quentin Tarantino’s film, Inglorious Basterds.
A French farmer in occupied France – this is during the war – is paid a visit by a certain Colonel Hans Landa, who is looking for that era’s targets. The farmer has them hidden in the basement of his farmhouse. Landa engages in pulling-the-wings-off-flies banter before presenting the choice to the farmer:
He can either give up the targets – or he can give up his family.
One feels for the farmer, who in the film gave up the targets for the sake of his family. What choice did he have? But what does one feel for family that uses the fact of family to get family to give in to something similarly loathsome and possibly – in due course – just as deadly? And not just to themselves or their families – as this business will scale.
There is no Colonel Landa with a pistol on his hip – and several heavily armed thugs – at the door.
These families are choosing to do it to themselves.
That’s the power of fear-based trauma conditioning; the thing I style weaponized hypochondria and it is powerful stuff. Powerful enough to turn wife against husband, children against parents. Because of what my friend’s daughter has heard on TeeVee and read in the printed versions of the same thing – these things both being owned and so controlled by the same things – she has come to regard her own mother as a plague carrier.
But what’s even worse than that is the thing which predated the weaponization of hypochondria and laid the groundwork for the Hans Landa’ing of families without the need for Hans.
It is the incredible selfishness of many people, who believe – virulently, in some cases – that other people are responsible for them rather than they for themselves. This is the underlying etiology of sickness psychosis, which manifests not so much in the wearing of the disgusting (and depressing to see) Facial Burqa but in the insistence that others wear them, too. In the militant enjoining of others to lock themselves up at home rather than to stay home themselves, if they believe their lives are at risk.
Und so weiter – as SS Standartenfuhrer Landa might say.
My friend’s daughter could have received the Holy Needling herself and – presumably – once Needled, her putatively plague-carrying mother could no longer get her sick.
Put more finely, the daughter could have taken the risk of the Holy Needling upon herself. Instead she used guilt to pressure her mother into getting Needled.
Such Americans will not need the help of Herr Standartenfuhrer Landa, when the time comes to point the authorities in the right direction. They’re already doing it – to their own flesh-and blood.
What do you suppose they’ll do to the rest of us?
