America Last conservatives and libertarians are coalescing around Big Tech entities like Amazon, which have consolidated power massively throughout the COVID-19 lockdowns.
They became triggered after New York Post editor Sohrab Ahmari published an op/ed bemoaning the “new normal” of atomization and isolation during Christmas. In a tweet, he took a shot at Big Tech for being the prime beneficiary of the collapse of the West as the masses succumb to fear and cowardice.
“Never again can we allow Big Tech and mega-corporations to push us into techno-remote living, an atomized existence in which the joy of human contact is replaced by faces on screens and empty Amazon boxes,” Ahmari wrote.
This really offended conservatives and libertarians who are happy to surrender their faith, their family and their nation to soulless corporate giants. This includes “Never Trump” hack Jonah Goldberg, who was run out of the National Review during the Trump years due to lack of talent.

This prompted Koch whore Robby Soave, the effete cosmopolitan scribbler at Reason Magazine, to bow before Big Tech for giving him so much content to consume throughout the pandemic:
Not only is "Big Tech" innocent of this crime, but tech has actually made the misery somewhat more bearable. I can't imagine enduring the pandemic without social media or Amazon.

Washington Examiner managing editor Jay Caruso posted some oligarch apologia, appearing incredulous that billionaire capitalists like Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and Microsoft founder Bill Gates would ever exploit a crisis to bolster their money and power:
The replies and quote tweets are fascinating. Apparently, all of these people like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and all the rest have been biding their time, waiting for a pandemic so they could benefit from lockdowns.

Project Lincoln adviser Tom Nichols took the groveling a step further, actually crediting Big Tech mega corporations for sustaining his life throughout the pandemic:
I kind of thought big tech and mega corporations were how we were surviving this, but what do I know

However, it is a well-documented fact that lockdown policies – instituted by government officials who are lobbied by tech corporations – have facilitated the greatest wealth transfer from the poor and middle class to the super rich in world history.
Big League Politics has reported on how the oligarchs have made out like bandits throughout the pandemic, enriching themselves while civil society is grinded into dust:
Research that the Institute for Policy Studies published on August 17, 2020 indicated that the dozen richest Americans now own more than $1 trillion in wealth.
One analyst described this development as “a disturbing milestone in the U.S. history of concentrated wealth and power.”
Omar Ocampo, an analyst at the Institute for Policy Studies said, “The total wealth of the Oligarchic Dozen is greater than the GDP of Belgium and Austria combined. Meanwhile, tens of millions of Americans are unemployed or living paycheck to paycheck.”
Jake Johnson of Common Dreams highlighted some of the key findings from the progressive think tank’s research.
IPS noted that the 12 leading American billionaires have witnessed their combined wealth increase by 40 percent — $283 billion — since the Wuhan virus outbreak, which has propelled policymakers to implement economically devastating shutdowns.
“During the first stage of the pandemic, between January 1 and March 18, the collective wealth of the Oligarchic Dozen declined by $96 billion,” IPS analysts Chuck Collins and Omar Ocampo wrote. “But their wealth quickly rebounded and surpassed their September 2019 Forbes 400 wealth level. The only exception is Warren Buffett, who is still $2 billion below his September 2019 wealth, but is currently worth $80 billion.”
As of August 13, the billionaires’ total wealth reached $1.015 trillion. Johnson noted that is “the first time in U.S. history that the collective net worth of the top 12 American billionaires has topped the trillion-dollar mark.” According to IPS, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s wealth skyrocketed by $48.5 billion since the middle March. This surge in wealth made Musk the “biggest pandemic profiteer” of the billionaire bunch.
“This is simply too much economic and political power in the hands of twelve people,” Collins, director of IPS’ Program on Inequality and the Common Good, declared in a statement.
The rise of President Trump’s nationalism within the GOP has exposed the shills, frauds and fakers among the ranks. Conservatives who would rather serve Big Tech oligarchs than fight for America’s future have no place in the new Republican Party.
Teacher’s Union President Claims It is ‘White Privilege’ to Worry about Children Committing Suicide During School Closures
Scott Wilson, who serves as president of the Pasco Association of Educators in the state of Washington, claimed on a Zoom call earlier this month that it is “white supremacy” to consider reopening public schools and any concerns over children committing suicides while isolated and away from school is “white privilege.”
Additionally, Wilson claimed that reopening schools would be the equivalent of letting rioters storm into the U.S. Capitol.
“There are decisions to be made. You stand on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol as people break down barriers and head to the doors. Do you follow?” Wilson asked on the call. “You stand at the governor’s mansion. The crowd breaks down barriers to enter the grounds. Do you follow? Or do you choose a different way? We must not ignore the culture of white supremacy and white privilege.”
“We speak of equity, we speak of care of all students, yet we listen and attend to voices saying ‘Reopen everything, I’m free to breathe,’ supporting white privilege,” Wilson continued.
“[Parents] complain their children are suicidal without school or sports. As a father, daily surviving the suicide of my son, I find these statements ignorant and another expression of white privilege,” Wilson said, demonstrating his complete lack of concern of the children’s safety.

How can they say it's safe to reopen schools when they can't even meet in person to discuss it?

Big League Politics has reported on teachers claiming it is racist to want to open schools.
North Carolina teacher Justin Parmenter, who serves on the board of directors for the North Carolina Association of Education (NCAE), is saying that any parent who wants their child to return to school is guilty of “white privilege.”
“White folks threatening to pull their kids out of public schools if those schools don’t open those doors during a pandemic that is disproportionately impacting communities of color = weaponized white privilege,” he wrote in a Twitter post on Dec. 19.
“Using disproportionate wealth and power to try to impact policy in this manner is the definition of white privilege,” Parmenter wrote in a tweet from Dec. 20.
Parmenter is an elementary-school teacher who revels in indoctrinating his students to his political agenda, as NC’s Education First Alliance has exposed.
“Why do some people claim that teachers should not be political? In what ways is that stance political? How do you respond when people tell you that teaching should not be political?” Parmeter wrote in a Twitter post on Oct. 18.
He believes in indoctrinating children to his political beliefs so strongly that he even hosted a workshop encouraging other teachers to do so shortly before the election…
Unless the people come together and reject this insanity pushed by soulless leftists, the pandemic will mean a permanent shuttering of American life.
The radical Left hates white people, and their dehumanizing rhetoric could lead to genocide if this wicked ideology is not defeated.
