‘Clap For NHS’ Virtue Signal to Return to UK
Cringe world strikes again
Paul Joseph Watson
The pointless and cringeworthy virtue signaling exercise where people ‘clap for the NHS’ once a week is set to return to the UK, according to the woman who started it.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday that England was set to enter a third national lockdown for an open ended period that could last for months.
The decision was made despite the fact that previous lockdowns haven’t worked, including one in London which saw higher cases after the lockdown than before it started.
To add insult to injury, the insufferable practice where people emerge from their houses at 8pm every night to ‘clap for carers’ is apparently making a comeback.
“The woman behind Clap for Our Carers, Annemarie Plas, has confirmed it will return from 8pm this Thursday,” tweeted reporter Carl McQueen. “This time, widening its message to #clapforheroes to “acknowledge every hero who has played their part through the pandemic”.”

McQueen admitted that the reaction to the idea had been largely negative, with many respondents dismissing it as “meaningless.”
Plas is trying to restart the gesture despite canceling its previous incarnation because it had become “too political.”
The coronavirus pandemic has seen nurses exalted to God-like status across the western world despite the fact that in England, hospitals are emptier than they were this time last year.
Family members of cancer victims and others suffering from serious illnesses who have had their treatment cancelled have also expressed fury at videos showing NHS nurses dancing in hospitals for social media clout.
As we previously highlighted, skeptics have pointed out that the event turned into a bizarre kind of communal ceremony, with the NHS being deified as a religious institution.
Doctor and author Theodore Dalrymple said the NHS worship clapathon reminds him of communist despotism.
“It reminds me a little, in its tendency to get longer and louder and almost more hysterical, of the applause after a speech by Nicolae Ceausescu or other communist despot, in which everyone in the audience had to show himself as enthusiastic and the most enthusiastic applauder, and to continue applauding as long as someone else was applauding, for to be the first to stop might be taken as a sign of disloyalty and dissent from the official line,” wrote the author.
Some people were even named and shamed by neighbors on social media sites for refusing to join in with the weekly worship session. TV channels also briefly went off air to encourage people to join in.
As we highlighted earlier, the true purpose of the new ‘lockdown’ (most of the country was under de facto lockdown anyway) is to give leeway to the police to be significantly more draconian in enforcing it.
