‘Clap For NHS’ Virtue Signal to Return to UK

Cringe world strikes again.

The pointless and cringeworthy virtue signaling exercise where people ‘clap for the NHS’ once a week is set to return to the UK, according to the woman who started it.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday that England was set to enter a third national lockdown for an open ended period that could last for months.

The decision was made despite the fact that previous lockdowns haven’t worked, including one in London which saw higher cases after the lockdown than before it started.

To add insult to injury, the insufferable practice where people emerge from their houses at 8pm every night to ‘clap for carers’ is apparently making a comeback.

“The woman behind Clap for Our Carers, Annemarie Plas, has confirmed it will return from 8pm this Thursday,” tweeted reporter Carl McQueen. “This time, widening its message to #clapforheroes to “acknowledge every hero who has played their part through the pandemic”.”

McQueen admitted that the reaction to the idea had been largely negative, with many respondents dismissing it as “meaningless.”

Plas is trying to restart the gesture despite canceling its previous incarnation because it had become “too political.”

The coronavirus pandemic has seen nurses exalted to God-like status across the western world despite the fact that in England, hospitals are emptier than they were this time last year.

Family members of cancer victims and others suffering from serious illnesses who have had their treatment cancelled have also expressed fury at videos showing NHS nurses dancing in hospitals for social media clout.

As we previously highlighted, skeptics have pointed out that the event turned into a bizarre kind of communal ceremony, with the NHS being deified as a religious institution.

Doctor and author Theodore Dalrymple said the NHS worship clapathon reminds him of communist despotism.

“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 the author.

Some people were even named and shamed by neighbors on social media sites for refusing to join in with the weekly worship session. TV channels also briefly went off air to encourage people to join in.

As we highlighted earlier, the true purpose of the new ‘lockdown’ (most of the country was under de facto lockdown anyway) is to give leeway to the police to be significantly more draconian in enforcing it.

Professor of Medicine Brags About Wearing Two Face Masks to Inauguration Despite Having Been Vaccinated

Later deletes tweet after being ridiculed.

A professor of medicine and frequent CNN guest bragged about wearing two face masks to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration despite having already received a COVID-19 vaccine, but later deleted the tweet after receiving criticism.

Megan L Ranney MD posted a photo of herself wearing two masks alongside the words, “Off I go to #Inauguration21….with an old N95 under my cloth mask. Heebie Jeebies from being in an airport, despite being fully vaccinated.”

She also added that she was “thankful” for more draconian screening measures in the aftermath of the breach at the Capitol earlier this month.

However, respondents to the tweet slammed Ranney for her hysterical overreaction and apparent desperation for social media clout while others questioned why she would need to wear two masks while vaccinated if masks and vaccines were effective.

Presumably, if wearing a mask makes you a good person, wearing two masks makes you a doubleplusgood person.

Others pointed out that aside from the debate about whether or not masks are actually effective in stopping the spread of COVID-19, this is the latest example of a leftist betraying the fact that the face mask has become the latest insipid token of sanctimonious virtue signaling and obedience.

Ranney deleted the tweet a few hours after she posted it.

Another leftist who previously bragged about wearing two face masks on Twitter also deleted his tweet after facing rididule.

As we previously highlighted, the BBC even told people to wear face masks during sex, while leftists don’t seem too bothered about the fact that masks will contribute an estimated 7,000 tons of plastic to the oceans and take 450 years to break down.

Bali Police Force Tourists Caught Not Wearing Masks to Do Push-Ups

Russians blamed for not following rules.

Police in Bali are forcing tourists caught not wearing face masks to do push-ups and sweep the streets as punishment.

The sanction is being handed out primarily to foreigners who don’t have cash on them to pay a fine of AUD $9.

According to authorities, around 80 per cent of those flouting the rules, which requires masks to be worn even outside, were visiting foreigners.

They are referred to by locals as “naughty bule” (naughty foreigners) and are being blamed for public disorder.

In response, officials are forcing them to do 25 push-ups or sweep the streets, but if photos posted by the Daily Mail are anything to go by, not many people are taking it seriously.

According to Kerta Suryanegara, head of the public order police, rulebreakers “act like Covid-19 is not real” and simply laugh in the faces of officials when confronted.

“How could I not be annoyed? Sometimes we feel that we have been abused in our country,” said Suryanegara about the attitude of tourists to the pandemic.

According to the report, most of the “foreigners” responsible for not following mask rules are Russians.

Meanwhile, innumerable people in developed countries continue to wear face masks even while doing vigorous exercise, something that the World Health Organization has warned should not be practiced.

Wearing a mask during running can cause serious breathing difficulties and potentially deadly respiratory problems, but apparently virtue signaling is more important.

Poll: Plurality of Brits Support Government Spying On People via Cellphone Tracking to Enforce Lockdown

76 per cent support banning handshakes.

A plurality of people in Britain support giving the government powers to spy on people’s movements via cellphone tracking to enforce lockdown, according to a new poll.

The YouGov poll asked people in multiple different countries if they supported, “The Government in [country name] using the mobile phone data of individuals to ensure they are complying with restrictions on movement outside of the home during a lockdown.”

45 per cent of Brits supported the measure compared to 42 per cent who opposed it.

To put that into perspective, more people than not literally support handing the state the power to track people’s physical movements in real time by giving them access to GPS triangulation data.

In Australia, which has seen one of the strictest lockdowns in the developed world, a whopping 62 per cent support the measure with just 29 per cent opposing it.

When asked whether the government should “ban handshakes,” 76 per cent of respondents in the UK supported the idea, with just 13 per cent in opposition.

YouGov poll results have routinely found that large majorities of the UK population support increasingly draconian government lockdown measures, despite a new Stanford University study showing lockdowns have no benefits in controlling viruses compared to voluntary measures.

Academics from Duke, Harvard, and Johns Hopkins have also concluded that there could be around a million excess deaths over the next two decades as a result of lockdowns.

As we reported yesterday, UK authorities are also considering a new measure that would force people to send selfies every day to prove they’re self-isolating, photos which would then be cross-referenced using GPS data and facial-recognition software.
