The totalitarian instinct on display:
In the way of background, “The Incredible Doctor Pol” program is a reality show based in rural central Michigan that follows the professional activities in doctor Jan Pol’s veterinarian office and of members of his staff as they’re doing field visits. The county Pol operates in, like the state itself, went for Trump.
My wife loves the show and I occasionally watch it with her. Pol is an eminently likable character. His work is real. It doesn’t involve a hint of the virtue-signaling dreck that gives shrikes like this woman away from a mile out:
Footage in the episode “Happy Birthday Moo” briefly showed a few members of the Pol family wearing shirts that said “Keeping America Great” during a Labor Day walk in Michigan. The episode aired in July of 2017, so the footage was presumably from 2016, prior to Trump’s election. It was thus more likely anti- than pro-Trump, but it’s unclear what political statement, if any, was being made:
The shirts were custom designed so they could’ve just been meant as a generic celebration of working Americans.
Whatever the intention, it’s incidental to this woman’s reaction and the window into the mind of the cultMarx id it provides. That 99% of everything on network, cable and streaming services is implicitly–if not explicitly–cultMarxist isn’t enough for zealots like her. An innocuous nod in the other direction is an intolerable intrusion into their ever-expanding intellectual safe spaces dead zones.
Notice the insinuations in her puritanical post. Trump supporters–most white Americans, in other words–favor “racism” and oppose “human rights”. The Dutch doctor–who has the most watched show in NatGeo Wild’s history–is a disappointment to his homeland.
This woman is a great illustration of why Gen Z is turning away from the SJWism that defines so many neurotic, nihilistic millennials and burned out boomers alike. Spending all of one’s energy scouting for things about which to scold people with a stern “This is NOT okay” is an immiserating, soul-crushing way to live. It’s not a formula for human flourishing, which is why many SJWs are such miserable creatures.
