might be alright. watch as many start to stand up to the hideous regimes of pseudoscientific imposition and suppression that have been imposed upon them.
good for you students. good for you.
“only 67 children out of 1300 submit to lateral flow tests and masking”
predictably, the fussy frumpster fasciati see this as a “public healthy emergency.”
but it’s not. it’s a societal immune system kicking in to refute their nonsensical, fear raddled authority.
in his inimitable fashion, gatopal emeritus™ elon bachman encapsulates this perfectly:
it’s all going punk rock.
this ends when we say it ends and if the one thing these children learn this year is the power of becoming ungovernable and staring down authority, then maybe the public schools actually taught something useful for a change.
and if we’re lucky, we may get another round of great music out of it…
“And these children that you spit onAs they try to change their worldsAre immune to your consultationsThey're quite aware of what they're goin' through
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changesTurn and face the strangeCh-ch-changesDon't tell them to grow up and out of it”
Where's your shame? You've left us up to our necks in it.
indeed. david knew the score…
I'll admit my mind went to a certain song as well.
"Teachers, leave them kids alone
Hey! Teacher! Leave us kids alone!"
The teachers unions here in England have been absolutely shameful these past two years. Parasitic liars, opportunistic scum. We need a 'Reagan and the Air Traffic Controllers' moment. Sack them all and then rehire the ones who actually want to teach.
Had a rude awakening. Overheard a sister-in-law saying that only extremists are saying the jabs are toxic. Family gathering revealed that they’re all covidians. Masks on, masks off, masks on again—haphazard NPIs.
Being called “extremist” by a relative is, shall I say, bracing?
The wedge issue—the psyop—has been working.
So desperately important that truth prevails.
Rock on, kids.
I challenge each of you. Every single one. Do at LEAST ONE thing today in defiance. ANYTHING! Don't wear a mask at the airport until you board the plane. Don't wear one at the grocer. Something. Anything.
Give others hope and spread courage. If not now, when? If not you, who?
Be bold and courageous!!!
Our neck of the woods. Great news. My son's a proud Cheshire lad. Fertile soil up here for insurrection against lummox's from London.
i would have been one of those dissenters, looking back on my childhood i was always the one that said no and meant it.
keep it up kids!
And the children shall lead the way … doing what the adults aren’t brave enough to do !!
What are they going to do ?
Ground them ? Send them to bed without supper ?
I say we all join them … laughing and dancing in the streets without masks. Have the kids act like kids, and the adults dress up in fancy dress and have an outdoor fete !
Make them show up as the Gestapo they are, with dogs and water cannons…. As Gandhi showed, there aren’t ENOUGH prisons to hold an UNGOVERNABLE populace z
Viva le Badcat !!!
Excellent. I keep praying students in my district will organize and say no to it all too!
"Public health emergency!" This reminds me of when all the corporate media declared that a victory for Brexit would mean Britain would run out of medical supplies in a few months and people would start starving in the streets from no trade. Sounds like some of the Brits in the North are wising up to the globalist con.
As always, claws on target, gato. It's when they start locking up and murdering kids that things start to get really.... um, wait... oh, shit.
Holy fuck. Maybe there is hope for the next generation.
Something that these kids will learn is that there's always an answer to "or else what?"
Sometimes it's serious - you get physically removed from a passenger aircraft or refused entry to a country.
Sometimes it's trivial - the school nurse sends a "sternly worded letter" and nothing else happens.
In this case, it will probably be more like the latter. Good job, pupils!
But you grow up and you calm down
And you're working for the clampdown
You start wearing the blue and brown
I am 19. NO mask, vaccine, social distancing. Unfortunately everyone else I know is part of the psychosis. Feels lonely AF.
What is the 'public health emergency'? His?
Is he afraid that they might lop his head off?
So many college kids had no problem complying with mandates and testing. I was so disappointed. But maybe the younger children will be the ones to make a stand.
I absolutely enjoy reading your blog, bad kitty. You are really the best kitty.
Living 35 miles west of the cesspool of Wash DC, I can tell you I am officially sick of the bull shit. all of it.
yesterday I took a little drive south on Rt 28 and over to Bristow to see my 3 grand babies 2,3 and 4. They are angels, and such a blessing. On the drive to, and home I was equally brightened to see at least a dozen cars with #FJB in large 8 inch letters.
I could never put that on my car bc I do not want my car "keyed" or otherwise destroyed by some angry leftist.
All of these progressives irritate the heck out of me now
Academics and K12 teachers are completely around the bend now. My little liberal arts college is now requiring boosters, kn95 masks in and out (and all day) AND remote learning for the foreseeable future, and stay in your room, and test weekly etc, etc. This is repeated everywhere for these elite schools. Students are sick of it, (at least those who have some sense). The rank insanity and fanaticism is now off the charts. So, expect the kids to just say F-You! more. This is a very good outcome as the youth had become extremely conservative (not in a republican sense, but in an obedience to authority sense) and conformist in the last decade (the most uninspired and clueless students I have taught in 30 years). It will be refreshing to see a generation come of age that has rediscovered how to erect the middle finger and direct it at the fools in the suits when times require it.
The desperation of the control freaks is increasingly obvious. They have become like the failing manager who has only micromanaging skills and tries to apply it to every person on the team. They always fail and usually without grace. It's everyone's fault but theirs.
I read the headline from the NYT about January 6th and podcasts. Thought about it for a bit and had Anarchy in the UK in my head. Then I read your post and realize why.
Some of us weren't just wearing a fashion when we loved punk and hated those in charge with their fear mongering, materialism and wars.
Great score - sure sounds a lot better than "Let's Vax" or "Moderna Love" (if the CDC owned the Bowie library)
Thinking these kids are the grandchildren of the Woodstock generation. Isn't it curious that a surprisingly large percentage of the "free love" crowd has bent the knee?(Last year, an event normally drawing old hippies swung the hammer with "masks required and enforced to the full extent of law" - and then had the nerve to add "in the spirit of Woodstock, Peace & Love".)
Thanks for the update! It's our job to educate the kids that freedom is worth fighting for. Meanwhile over here in Israel...
On point as always - this is a real shot in the arm for those of us who have stood tall these last few years but been told we are the fringe.
The way his voice tails off at “public health emergency” sounds like he is trying to convince himself more than anything else. Crazy how we’ve let these hypochondriacs take over society but as you say being a paranoid whiny attention seeker is slowly fading out of fashion.
The unions in UK do serve a purpose but have shown themselves to be more fascist than the zillionaire psychos making money out of this charade. Our so called teachers need to be fired and then we hire those that actually want to teach.
He was my idol, I have all his vinyl albums and just…Bowie, you’ve returned me to my youth of hopes and dreams.
Thank you…we can be HEROS❤️
Also, Robert Burns, from thr poem "A Man's a Man":
"The man o’ independent mind,
He looks an’ laughs at a’ that"
"The pith o’ Sense an’ pride o’ Worth
Are higher rank than a’ that."
This is perfect for being shared with my 16 year old daughter, she loves Bowie and 70-80s rock, is in U.S. high school, and it's short enough to hold her attention and get something out of it. Thanks, El Gato
This is so heartening! I’m guessing this is a braver manifestation of the sentiment that many of their parents are quietly expressing at home. Power to the people, young and old!
Admirers of Bad Cattitude should also read Robert Kennedy's THE REAL DR. FAUCI. Much of the same message from someone within the Beltwayl.
very small data points: I see daily high school (track) athletes practicing (affluent suburb; deep blue state) my sense is they are compliant (probably most are vaxxed) but mostly ignoring the scam at this point: zero masks, zero social distancing, zero evident anxiety (big contrast to 20, much of 21) - saw a delightful game of tackle-soccer yesterday - lots of close in wrestling,pushing, laughter. Primary school dismissal time (1-6 grade); carefully count outdoor masks/no masks: 50/50 - numerous of the masks improperly worn. Same % for parent/child clusters
Guess they did or expect kids with a backbone!
They all probably watched a bunch of people on TikTok smoking weed with a mask on, and knew right away it was BS.
STAND FIRM!! I hope they can but will the "government" say they are bad parents and threaten to take the kids????????
An actual scientist ripping apart the ‘evidence’ provided from the education department that led to the reintroduction of masks in English schools. More people were ill in the masks group. 70% of teachers feel like masks protect them.
And then we wonder how we’re in this position, when policy is built on feelings
Oh, if only I could be a kid in school again knowing what I know now what fun I could have!
Hopefully we're raising the greatest libertarian generation in centuries.
Adults have been marching their "dirty, disease ridden" children down to selfishly sacrifice them by forcing risky unnecessary "vaccines" into them. Maybe all we needed to do is ask them for their help instead.
Oooh— what supplements can we take to bolster our “societal immune system”? Sign me up!
How many will fall right in line if the school makes it compulsory? I’m thinking all of them.
Some kids are starting to express their frustrations with the outdoor lunch policy at my school, where they are forced to sit on cold concrete in sub freezing temperatures to eat. I'm fanning the flames of resistance, and I've gotten myself in some trouble with the admin for speaking against the policy to the students and parents. I'm openly rebelling against this nonsense now: now:https://allamericanwarriormonk.substack.com/p/notes-from-the-covid-classroom-3
If only adults did the same.
Good for them! Now if only their parents would also stand up along with their kids and tell these unions full of pant shitting teachers that if they can't overcome their irrational fears then they can go find work elsewhere! Not sure how it is today in the schools of Wokeville but it used to be that those who finished degrees with only so-so standing took an extra year of 'education courses' and became teachers. Almost anyone with a decent knowledge base and reasonable personality can teach. Fairly good pay, pensions, summers off - advertise the positions and see who is willing to step up and replace those teachers who are crippled by their own fear!
these kids' parents did something right--on purpose or not!!!
"We don't need no thought control" - Pink Floyd
Surge adolescentia Britannia!
Turn it up.
Including David Bowie's wisdom blew me away. Interesting that the artists of that generation recognize totalitarianism and are completely against this nonsense. Clapton is publicly campaigning against it and is now a hated "anti-vaxxer". It looks like John Cleese, who has already blasted woke culture as disgusting, is on schedule this year to be banned from Twitter for his anti vax stance comments.
"Putting out fire...with gasoline!" Another fine Bowie lyric - now what was that movie... seems appropriate for this forum....
so glad you see glimmers of hope... I see none... a few uprisings which fizzle.. and then more craziness happens... what is going on with Djokovic is outright insanity (as one small example in a billion)
Finally a punk rock reference. I was starting to think punk was dead. I talk about this constantly. Where have all the anti-establishment punk rock kids gone? They all became groupthinkers and followers. Wow…
Where are the college kids?! Why are they lining up for shot #3 before returning to school?! And willingly paying big bucks with huge debt to do so?
We have a bumper sticker that says, "Masks don't work." Might add one that says, "Vaccines, either."
