GM switched from making cars to making Holy Rags - and now Ford is trying to sell you on wearing them.
And on getting the Holy Jab.
A slew of ads touting the New Religion began airing January 1 - narrated by the actor Bryan Cranston, who played a drug dealer in the well-known series, Breaking Bad. How appropriate.
The first ad begins with a screenshot of a Rag-wearing dad and his masklings, being conditioned to live in fear of a bug that has killed far fewer kids than suicidal depression this year.

“Let’s hold the line,” urges a tired-sounding Cranston - dirgy piano music in the background, a helicopter ferrying a “case” to the hospital. More Face-Diapered children peering sadly at the world outside from behind a plate glass window.
“Sacrifice for it” . . . though we know the people enjoining us to wear the Holy Rag often don’t. And haven't “sacrificed” a thing themselves. Indeed, have profited from our enforced misery. Acquired fortunes by forcing others to "sacrifice." Acquired power, by using that word to justify it.
It's sickening.
“Let’s look out for each other” - by shutting up and obeying ridiculous, degrading, tyrannical edicts and hounding anyone who raises his hand to question the Kabuki. Cranston does not mention the families who have been forcibly prevented from looking out for each other via decrees forbidding them from even seeing one another.
Who have lost the ability to feed their kids. Who are going to lose their homes.
Who is "looking out for" the business owners who are being forced out of business?
Who is "looking out" . . . for sanity?
It is sickening to see another ad not merely affirming the opposite but framing it as a moral duty to bee-lieve.
Cue the hypnotic humming.
“We are so close” . . . to the Holy Jab. Cue the conveyor belt of phials and scenes of caring first-responders administering the Holy Dose . . . by force. New York lawmakers are already proposing concentration camps for Needle Refusers - "cases" and "contacts" of "communicable diseases" - even if they haven't actually got one.
For up to 90 days. Nacht und Nebel.
And even if that doesn't come to pass, economic force will be used to corner the un-Needled into accepting the jab for a sickness they haven't got and have little, if anything, to fear from.
Which raises questions about why it must be forced - if it's so very desirable. Also, if it works. If so, then the people who want it and get it themselves should be just fine - even if those who don't want it don't get it.
Never mind. Cue the music.
“Soon, we will be what we were,” Cranston promises. Just wear your Holy Rag and - when it is offered - accept the Holy Jab. Bring your children in for theirs.
Then you - and they - will be allowed to return to a normal life. The commercial shows faces - implying we’ll be allowed to see them and show them again . . . if only we accept the Holy Jab, which is “so close.”
It is obscene nonsense.
Worse, even, than the insipid, oleaginous/ersatz compassion injunctions to wear the Sickness Hijab and play Sickness Kabuki . . . to "sacrifice" for it.
Because the Holy Jab isn't the end of it. It is merely the beginning of it.
It is your permanent induction into the Sickness Cult. Now and forever, amen.
Pope Fauci XVIII and his viceroy, Bill Gates, have already said that Needling will not be the end of it. That wearing of the Sickness Burqa will “have to continue” for the indefinite future - always pushed forward - along with all the other permanent rituals of the Sickness Cult.
This is the New Normal we've been hearing about since the Cult was formally established in the spring of 2020.
It premised on acceptance of the core tenet of the cult - pushed by this commercial - that the asserted possibility of anyone getting sick henceforth requires . . . sacrifice . . . from all us . . . (except of those course those insisting we sacrifice).
Even if actually getting sick hasn't happened to us - and even if getting sick means nothing more than that to almost all of us.
Consider the implications.
If the entire populace must . . . sacrifice because an illness is afoot that 99.8-something percent of them won't die from and which most of them won't even get symptoms of from then do you bee-lieve the Sickness Burqas and Kabuki will not be required for other sicknesses that don't kill 99.8-something percent of the population?
How about 99.5 percent?
It never ends, because people will never stop getting sick - and some of them will die. This is life and it used to be considered normal before it became normalized to live in hypochondriacal dread of getting sick.
It's sad to see Ford selling this - instead of cars.
PS: Cranston - who apparently got sick - didn't die, either. But Dawn Wells - who played Mary Ann on the '60s sitcom Gilligan's Island - did. She was well into her 80s - a long life and a normal death.
But never mind.
And cue the music.
