UK Mother ‘Named and Shamed’ on Facebook For Not Clapping For the NHS

“I was mortified.”

Published

on

A mother in the UK was named and shamed on Facebook because she failed to participate in the weekly ‘clap for the NHS’.

Every Tuesday at 8pm in the United Kingdom, people emerge from their homes to applaud health workers for their role in fighting coronavirus.

The event has become a massive nationwide spectacle, with people cheering, banging pots and pans and even setting off fireworks.

However, when one woman was unable to take part, she was accused of “showing the street up.”

The mother described how she had a difficult time getting her young son to sleep and fell asleep herself before 8pm.

“A post went on our community Facebook group actually naming and shaming me. I was mortified,” she wrote on Mumsnet.

“The post said everyone else turned out and I showed the street up and if I can’t spend a minute showing my appreciation I don’t deserve to use the NHS if I or my family get ill.”

The mother said she tried to ignore the post but that it had upset her.

One NHS worker responded to the post by defending the mother.

“Just reply ‘sorry, didn’t think I should leave my vomiting child to clap’ to shame them back. Awful. I’m NHS, no-one in my street claps, including me,” said the health worker.

It’s unsurprising that people are now being publicly shamed for failing to display enough enthusiasm for the NHS.

As Theodore Dalrymple notes, the clapping bears the hallmark of how citizens and party members under Communist regimes were forced to feverishly applaud despots or face being labeled a dissident.

“It reminds me a little, in its tendency to get longer and louder and almost more hysterical, of the applause after a speech by Nicolae Ceausescu or other communist despot, in which everyone in the audience had to show himself as enthusiastic and the most enthusiastic applauder, and to continue applauding as long as someone else was applauding, for to be the first to stop might be taken as a sign of disloyalty and dissent from the official line,” wrote Dalrymple.

The author described the weekly clapathon as “emotionally kitsch,” opining, “There is often the implication that if you refrain from making it—and even worse if you actively refuse to make it—you are in some sense an enemy, in this case, of the people,” writes Dalrymple. “Whatever your inner conviction, it is safest to join in. By doing so you avoid drawing attention to yourself and you are assumed to think and feel like everyone else, which is always safest.”

As we highlighted yesterday, families of cancer victims, who are unable to access treatment because hospitals are devoted to COVID-19, also expressed their displeasure at health workers for spending time dancing for Tik Tok videos.

‘Sexism’ Row Erupts Over Not Enough Parasitic Worms Being Named After Female Scientists

Clown world strikes again.

Published

A sexism row has erupted over concerns that not enough newly discovered species of parasitic worms are named after women.

Yes, really.

Concerns are being raised as to whether “gender bias” has played a role in naming the creatures after a team of scientists led by parasitologist Robert Poulin “scoured studies in eight journals published between 2000 and 2020,” reports Sky News.

“Of the 596 species named after eminent scientists, only 111, or 19%, recognised women, according to the experts from New Zealand’s University of Otago.”

According to the study, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, “We found a consistent gender bias among species named after eminent scientists, with male scientists being immortalised disproportionately more frequently than female scientists.”

Of course, the reason more of the creatures were named after male scientists is that men are more likely to choose to study science subjects in the first place.

Therefore there are more male scientists to choose from when deciding who to name species of creatures after.

It has absolutely nothing to do with “sexism,” just as more men working on oil rigs or on construction sites is due to natural biological differences between men and women and the choices they make.

The fact that any of this is even being treated seriously is another damning indictment of how mainstream science has been warped by intersectional nonsense and the culture wars.

Men and women are different. They have different primary character traits and as a result are more likely to want to pursue different careers and life choices.

That’s not “sexist,” it’s scientific biological reality. Deal with it.

Rafael Nadal Slams Wimbledon Banning Russian Players

“It’s not their fault what’s happening.”

Tennis legend Rafael Nadal has slammed Wimbledon’s decision to ban all Russian and Belarusian players from their tournament, asserting, “It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment.”

Last month, Wimbledon organizers confirmed that players from both countries would be barred from competing in the tournament even if they have vocally opposed the war in Ukraine.

The announcement means that top players like Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev will not be able to compete at SW19 this year.

Players had initially been expected to be given an opportunity to perform an act of ideological subservience by denouncing Russia in order to be able to take part, but now even this won’t be enough.

All-time grand slam wins leader Rafael Nadal criticized the ban as being “very unfair” on his “Russian mates” and colleagues.

“Poor them…It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment,” Nadal told reporters.

“In that sense, I feel very sorry for them,” he added, asserting that the organizers had taken a “drastic” position.

Nadal said blocking Russians and Belarusians from competing would also mess up the tennis ranking system.

“The 2,000 points, whenever we go to the grand slams, they are really important and we have to go to those tournaments. So we will have to see the measures that we take,” he said.

Nadal joins fellow generational talent Novak Djokovic in denouncing the measure, with the Serb calling the decision to ban Russians and Belarusians “crazy”.

As we highlighted last month, Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina demanded that Russian and Belarusian players be subjected to ideological purity tests before they are allowed to compete in international tournaments.
