Are you ready for ‘Woke Whiplash’?

Because it’s happening.

This article isn’t going to be as long (my last one was more than long enough New Rule – Tucker Carlson and Bill Maher should ditch their Dead Poets Society).  In my last piece, I made a series of comments (shared by others) condemning Vaccine Mandates for a variety of reasons – medicalized Racial Apartheid being a major one, and depleting the available vaccine supply worldwide to at-risk populations of the elderly and those with underlying medical conditions (particularly in Africa).

I specifically took aim at ‘woke’ celebrities trying to vaccine shame healthy Americans with little to no risk of hospitalization from Covid-19, including Jennifer Aniston and Jimmy Kimmel.

(I wasn’t of course the only one who made these points, Larry Elder running for Governor in California’s recall election made similar comments, so did Candace Owens, Joe Rogan, and a number of others in independent media).

That article was completed on September 8, published September 12.  Now, as of this writing (September 16, 2021), the Woke Whiplash has started.

In the past twenty-four hours, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have spoken out demanding ‘vaccine equity’ at something called Global Citizen concert.

Yet it was only four months ago Prince Harry attacked Joe Rogan for expressing the opinion that the vaccine supply shouldn’t be depleted by young healthy Americans.  His Whininess had the audacity to try and dictate to an American man on American soil what opinions he should be allowed to publicly express.

Now, this Royal Brat is pretending as though he didn’t encourage the very climate that left sick, elderly, and highly at-risk populations for Covid-19 fatalities un-protected while healthy, wealthy Americans and Brits pushed them out of line.

But they aren’t the only ones giving audiences Woke Whiplash.

The event was joined by a who’s who list of celebrity presenters and that wasn’t all.

Celebrities push global leaders for vaccine equity

“More than 70 celebrities — including Ciara, Richard Gere, Julianna Margulies, and Anne Hathaway — are calling on international leaders to prioritize COVID-19 vaccine equity, and get shots into the arms of at least 70 percent of the world’s population by next summer.

In an open letter directed to the leaders gathering at the United Nations General Assembly session in New York and published in The New York Times on Tuesday, the group of performers said COVID-19 is “a manmade pandemic of apathy.”

“None of us are safe until all of us are safe,” the letter, spearheaded by the anti-poverty humanitarian organization CARE and its global advocate, Iman, said.

Global leaders, the signees said, must “make 7 billion doses available before the end of 2021, and an additional 7 billion doses by mid-2022 to fully vaccine 70 percent of the world by next summer. . . 

Among many of the notable figures to sign their names to the letter: comedians Sarah Silverman and Joel McHale, singer Annie Lennox, NFL star Russell Wilson, former “The Real” co-host Tamera Mowry-Housley, Broadway star Idina Menzel, “Game of Thrones’s” Peter Dinklage, fashion designers Rachel Zoe and Zac Posen, actors Debra Messing, Eva Longoria, Laura Linney, Scott Wolf, Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Alyssa Milano, model Christy Turlington Burns, choreographer Debbie Allen, former “Scandal” stars Bellamy Young and Tony Goldwyn, “Homeland’s” Morena Baccarin and celebrity chefs Spike Mendelsohn, Ellie Krieger and Curtis Stone.”

That’s a nice proposal, none of them appear to have given any thought to how that would be possible when Joe Biden is planning to force a vaccine mandate on all Americans, Booster Shots are being pushed for Seniors and At Risk Populations, and due to the fact that Vaccine Protection wanes over time Americans who have been and plan to stay vaccinated will have to get an upper in the near future.

They also haven’t announced plans to boycott the shows of Jimmy Kimmel who cruelly mocked un-vaccinated Americans that they should be left to die while whining he wanted to see an audience without masks.

Or Howard Stern who two weeks ago raged at those who were with the same invective.

On September 14, 2021, The Los Angeles Times Reported

Howard Stern slams Joe Rogan, tells skeptics to get vaccinated or leave the country

“We have no time for idiots in this country anymore. We don’t want you,” Stern said. “We want you to all either go to the hospital, stay home, die there with your COVID, don’t take the cure but don’t clog up our hospitals with your COVID when you finally get it.

“Stay home, don’t bother with science, it’s too late. … We want you to go away,” he continued. “We want you to leave the country. Go somewhere where they have ultimate freedom, wherever that is, some bizarro world where you don’t have to take the vaccine. … I don’t know when nonsense became such a thing.”

“I wanna get out of the house already … and then I got friends who invite us to parties and stuff,” Stern said. “They’re having parties. And I say, how are you guys having parties? How are people going to weddings? Some people are hiding still. I don’t know what’s going on.”

Where exactly did Stern expect all the un-vaccinated Americans to go?  Clearly not the ten wealthy nations that hoarded 75% of vaccinations.  Apparently, unvaccinated Americans are supposed to emigrate to poorer countries so that Howard Stern can get out of the house, go to parties and play chess.  Those nations are also supposed to do without the vaccine so he can have a social life.

Will all the celebrities that signed those letters and performed at the Global Citizen Live concert also send a letter demanding these two men be ‘canceled’ or is this more Lockdown Liberal Performative Theater?

Something tells me it’s the latter.

Consider the recent Met Gala and Emmy Awards.

At both attendees had to be vaccinated and the servers wore masks while the attendees did not in the photos, prompting criticism even from the events themselves.

Comedian Seth Rogan, arguably not one of the brighter celebrities in Hollywood, tried to use his speaking time at the Emmy’s to blast the indoor event without masks – like Gavin Newsom it didn’t seem to occur to him that he could and probably should have just walked out.  (Then again, Seth Rogan also revealed last year that he was SHOCKED, SHOCKED to learn  that people were living in Israel before the nation was founded in 1948.)

Not to be outdone, Whoopi Goldberg decided to set the record straight about the Met Gala in a conversation on ABC’s The View (the same network where Kimmel kills with everything except his jokes if ratings are anything to go by).

Goldberg’s stated:

“Outside, we did not wear masks. When we went into that dinner, you had to wear the mask,” she said, adding that attendees were only allowed to remove their masks to eat.”

Apparently eating and taking photos while dressed as freaks can be added to the list of Covid-19 Preventive Measures, along with having one’s hair washed and blown as Nancy Pelosi proved last year.

But then again, The View, known for such deep conversations as when a co-host famously wondered if the earth was round or flat or if a middle-aged man drugging and sodomizing a thirteen-year-old girl was rape or not, became the most high profile example of Woke Whiplash: Covid Edition on Friday when Vice-President Harris was scheduled to appear.

The View has been a forum of hate against un-vaccinated Americans and those that did not go along with the Lockdown Liberal Agenda.  But on Friday, the world (or at least the 2.9 Million audience in a country with a 330+ million population on a planet with 7.6 Billion People) saw just how much of a game Covid-19 is.

Live on the air two co-hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, were informed they’d tested positive for Covid and asked to leave the set.  What was supposed to be an hour-long interview with the Vice-President turned into a ten-minute segment at the end of the show with her taking questions from Joy Behar and Sarah Haines.

The first and most obvious question is why the results of the tests had not been known that morning before the Vice-President entered the building.  The second was why the show wasn’t canceled altogether when it was suspected that half the show’s hosts were in close proximity with Joy Behar, who at almost 79 years old is in the danger population and should have left immediately to get another Covid-19 test.

The plot thickened when audience member Nigel Smith (People Magazine Editor) published an article later that day recounting what really happened.

September 24, 2021, 4:55 PM People Magazine Reported:

The View: I Was in the Audience When Sunny and Ana Tested Positive for COVID–– Here’s How It Unfolded

“I could sense some mild commotion on set shortly before The View was to return from break, with Navarro and Hostin, 52, both walking off set as cameras were about to roll. Behar and Haines didn’t seem alarmed, so I thought nothing was wrong. But as they were attempting to exit the stage, Hostin and Navarro were suddenly escorted back to the table. Both women looked confused as they returned to their seats. Behar repeatedly asked the producers what was going on.

And then they were live.

“There seems to be something happening here that I’m not 100 percent aware of,” Behar said as the show resumed. “Can someone please apprise me of the situation?”

Hostin and Navarro were then asked — again! — to leave the set, with a producer explaining their sudden absence as a “tease” for what was to come. Another commercial break was suddenly announced on-air by Behar. We were left watching Behar and Haines alone at the table, both clearly flummoxed by what had just happened.”

Two co-hosts test positive for Covid-19 and tried to leave set and then were brought back into close proximity with a 79-year-old?

Fran Drescher is the new President of SAG-AFTRA, hopefully, she will fine ABC and The View for such reckless behavior in a cheap rating stunt.

More curious is the fact that the second tests done for the cohosts came back negative.

September 24, 2021 11:10pm (right after the show went off the air) The Hill Reported

‘View’ host Ana Navarro tests negative for coronavirus after testing positive before Harris interview 

What was most noticeable (at least too me) is that the two cohosts removed were the ones who were not white and who have been the most vocal and critical on the Biden Administration’s handling immigration issues – an area that Vice-President Kamala Harris overseas.

Two days before being removed from the show on air, Hostin had specifically slammed the administration.

It could be a coincidence, but then again as the People Magazine article pointed out the entire exit was as staged as Chris Cuomo’s emersion from a fictional quarantine that he broke multiple times.  The only co-hosts left were two white women who fawned over their WOC Vice-President.

But then again I am talking about a show that took its format from Shakespeare’s Macbeth Act 4, Scene 1 where a group of women convenes around a cauldron and chant “Double, double toil and trouble; First burn and cauldron bubble.”  It would appear The View tried to stay as true to format with its casting over the years.

Another case of Woke Whiplash: Covid Edition was Black Lives Matter of Greater New York has come out against Bill de Blaiso’s Covid-19 Mandatory Vaccine and Passport system.

This I suppose shouldn’t have been terribly surprising, after all, BLM protests and riots against systemic racism primarily happen in Blue States and Democrat-run cities (if the 2020 election results are anything to judge by, black American voters are starting to see a pattern in the party affiliation of candidates they elect.)

What all this tells us is what most of us already knew, Covid-19 is separating the men from the boys and the Woke are a group of spineless posers without any real knowledge or philosophy, subscribing to hipsterism as a way of life.

There really isn’t much more to say – after all, as I (and many more) already said all these days and weeks before the ‘woke’ got in the act (I can’t wait to see the U-Turn they do when Roe vs. Wade is overturned and poisoning and dismembering babies alive in utero is no longer vogue.)  But it does raise the question of how this group of people persuaded anyone to drink their Kool-Aid in the first place?
