The ultimate term of derision

Of all the things to come out of this #WuFlu #FakePanic #Plannedemic is the degree to which some Americans so cavalierly cast aside their fellow Americans with their crass terminology.  This is especially true of the dictatorially-minded bureaucrats and elected officials who dared to consider some Americans and some business activities as “Non-essential.” To all those public officials, elected, appointed, and otherwise subsisting on the government dole, I have a question: Who in the HELL are YOU to tell ANYBODY who is or isn’t “essential,” or what business activities are “necessary.”

I don’t like to use expletives, but this whole situation has me sorely tempted to use some.  For the sake of my readers, I will therefore restrain the immoderate impulses currently pushing me in the direction of a curse-laden tirade, but I must say that I find you public officials to be despicable. I find your dismissal of your fellow Americans beyond disrespectful, and the callous nature by which you simply devalue their lives and their fortunes as “non-essential.”

What is it to be “non-essential?” It means you aren’t really needed. You’re like the gravy on the potatoes, or the ketchup on the burger. You might be nice to have under some conditions, but otherwise, you’re not needed. Think of the people damning their fellow Americans as “non-essential.” Can you think of a more wretchedly arrogant and COMPLETELY unnecessary group of jackasses? Of all the things another human could call me and my pursuits, none is more offensive to me than “non-essential.” It’s the ultimate term of derision that cares not for race or sex or orientation or age, but merely the estimate of your worth in the eyes of some elite jackass. Rather than being discriminated against due to some innate characteristic, you’re being discriminated against based on somebody’s perverse estimate of your worth!

Let me be more direct: NONE OF YOU ARE ESSENTIAL, you bunch of hypocritical jackasses without whom we could live quite nicely. WE DON’T NEED YOU.

YOU EXIST FOR US! FOR US! FOR US!!!!!

IF we’re “Non-essential,” then by God, so are you, and if we are to be disposed with the wave of a hand and the scorn of the term “non-essential,” then I WANT EVERY ONE OF YOU ELECTED JACKASSES GONE!

Does that clarify the matter? For what do we need YOU if WE aren’t essential? WE pay the freight. WE pay for your salaries. WE do. If WE are “NON-ESSENTIAL,” then EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU CAN GO STRAIGHT TO HELL because you’re completely unnecessary.

The next time the word “non-essential” crosses your minds, you’d best grab it before it crosses your lips. The next public official who mouths that phrase in my proximity might just get more than a harsh talking-to if this term of intense derision is used in my presence.

It’s 2020. Times change, we’re told. Fine. Start with this one. The new N-Word you’d better not use to describe another American or their  profession is “Non-essential.”
