sick. they are not heroes, they are professionals (most of them) doing a job they wanted to do, werent pressured to do, and do it every day.

And they're all still getting paid.

Hillarys_Diaper 82 points ago +82 / -0

Just the ones in New York. Everywhere else they're getting laid off like a fart in the wind. But the media has a narrative to obey so to hell with logic. Helloooooo age of medical authoritarianism.

The word "hero" has been overused in modern news media to the point that it has lost meaning.

Even the primary dictionary definitions show a dilution over time:

"1a: a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability
b: an illustrious warrior
c: a person admired for achievements and noble qualities
d: one who shows great courage"

It has gone from meaning "demigod" to "person paid to do a risky or unpleasant job."

While soldiers are paid, it is probably the only modern usage of the word that has any direct relation to the original definition.

or people who stop criminals even though they arent getting paid and risk their lives, like armed citizens stopping shootings

RN here in the south. We dont get paid extra for anything, it's hourly. We usually have 4 covid cases in my entire hospital (it's a big hospital).... We are also being laid off and having our hours cut. No overtime as well. The hospital gets the money for this ventilator/diagnosis stuff, not RNs, but currently we have more open beds than I've ever seen or imagined due to cancelling elective procedures. Most hospitals are hurting... We arent heroes, this is cringy FB nursing shit. Also quit hating on us for working lots of hours to earn decent pay. Hospitals in the south dont pay shit, I could wait at restaurants and make our base starting pay (talking in the teens and mandatory 4 yrs BSN degree). The majority on nursing are dems, but there are pedes like me as well. Try not to group the entire nursing career.

Hey, you are doing your thing. Respect for being a contributing member of society.

Kekception 2 points ago +2 / -0

Absolutely. I got your back fellow RN. These dem regards are making us based nurse who work for our living look bad. My hospital has 22 positive covid patients on my floor alone. CA if you wanna know. I’ve been busting my ass and it grinds my gears seeing these nurse doing tik tok videos. When the hurricanes hit Florida a few years back I volunteered to do hurricane relief nursing. I put myself on the front. These bitches with there fake crying. Keep up the fight pede. I’m right with you

Professions most affected by TDS:

  • Artists/Writers

  • Journalists

  • Teachers

  • Nurses <- Here.

SeamusOtardy 8 points ago +13 / -5

I think you’d be surprised about teachers. There are many who are based.

cmndr_pepe_spacefrce 16 points ago +16 / -0

Well there are a lot of them but a high percentage? No, and certainly not running the teacher unions and developing the curriculums.

midgetpornrocks 9 points ago +9 / -0

Agree with this. Also depends on the level. The higher up in academia you go, I believe the more liberal they become. And really, the higher up in academia you go, the less essential you become. Looking back at my college career, almost all of my professors are people who never had real world experience.

SwordandBored11 6 points ago +6 / -0

The higher up you go, the less interaction you have with the people you are supposed to be serving (the kids). It's no wonder most top-down programs are shit for the kids, and this is coming from a teacher.

midgetpornrocks 2 points ago +2 / -0

That's what PA's are for, right? /s

cmndr_pepe_spacefrce 1 point ago +1 / -0

This is very true. To be at the top, academia has to be your whole life and only career. A guy who works in the private industry and teaches as a passion to help future generations won’t get into administrative positions to make decisions about hiring and curriculum. There’s also the factor that Marxists made a concerted effort since the previous century to infiltrate academics, music, and Hollywood to influence western culture and degrade it from within.

True, I am an artist and have lost most of my artist "friends" for my support of the President. Fuck 'em.

Artists don’t have brains, they are all about emotion.

Sumarongi 11 points ago +11 / -0

The good ones have brains. That’s what makes them good

PepesCovfefe 4 points ago +4 / -0

Indeed; the problem is art today is either money laundering or satanic ritualization; the only artists in the club are ones making this art which doesn’t require intelligence.

The intelligent ones are unknown. See: Sabo.

JiggsawCalrissian 1 point ago +1 / -0

Frequently I find it's the clients who dont have brains /s

duck__man 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes people who pay $100k for a smudge on a canvas also don’t have brains :-) And the artist who can sell a smudge on a canvas for $100k actually has my respect.

JiggsawCalrissian 1 point ago +1 / -0

Full disclosure I'm a corporate graphic designer so for me its providing artworks that I know go against everything they are trying to accomplish with their brand, but they sign the checks so....

No the client was not a high school student :p

I bet that you are not just artist. You have something else in your talent stack. Some engineering background may be? I am checking Scott Adams' theory about artists.

DystopianDoubleThink 13 points ago +13 / -0

I am also a carpenter and home remodeler. Not for business anymore. I did that to support my art, now my art supports that.

RussianBot2 13 points ago +15 / -2

Here you go. Scott Adams theory about artists confirmed one more time.

rightwingthunder 3 points ago +3 / -0

between me and you many are libtards and sluts. not great moral characters to hold up before the nation as heroes.

Karens are way over represented in certain sectors of nursing

Could say the same about cops, fire fighters, military etc with this logic. Nurses are heroes. The ones dancing around on Tic Tok are just narcissistic.

That's mostly right. The term should be based off a heroic action and not just doing your daily job. But I have to disagree about the role of our soldiers. I spent 8 years in the military and I went in voluntarily. I was awarded a few medals but never did anything "heroic." But there are others, those who were drafted and sent off to fight, and those in our world wars who to me went above and beyond the normal call of duty. I place those folks high up on that pedestal.

In that case, signing up to become a cop or firefighter or doctor or soldier is heroic.

You don't think it's heroic to sign up for a job you know can easily put you in a life threatening situation like a gun fight? Knowing that people will all be on the sideline shouting "shut up, you're just doing your job".

Last I checked you guys were all "support our troops" now it's "shut up and do your job you signed up for, you're not heroic in any way shape or form"

if you suck all the dicks of all the people who sign up for potentially life threatening jobs, then that's your problem.

I'm ex-army and I have always hated the "everyone's a hero" bullshit. The fuck they are. I knew plenty of useless people in our military, all branches, all ranks.

Every animal has a lot of unwanted and unnecessary fat, even wagyu beef...

cmndr_pepe_spacefrce -1 points ago +1 / -2

I work with them and that’s bullshit. Some are but saying all is just making the term as meaningless as “racism”.

And nurses make insane amounts of money and their Union is very powerful and very big. Most are super Liberal who push for socialized medicine and have a serious god complex.

duck__man 2 points ago +2 / -0

Yeah, they work 12 hrs shifts (and can sleep during them) and get 4 days off in a row And crazy overtime.

Dudemanfoo 6 points ago +6 / -0

Pretty sure they only do it 3 or 4 days a week usually...

All planned out.

The Democrats are posting memes depicting fast food workers as heroes. Brought to you by the same people that made a man "Woman of the Year" and worship a developmentally disabled Scandinavian teenager as a climate change deity.

Rosewolf2 4 points ago +4 / -0

People have been conditioned for about 100 years to view Police, Doctors, Nurses, and sometimes lawyers as some bastion of heroism.

Historically and factually all of the above have committed some of the nastiest and most vile crimes ever.

Police have imprisoned innocents with planted evidence, doctors have tested on live people secretly (misdiagnose etc), lawyers just protect the bad and imprisoned the good.

Vegans4Trump 1 point ago +1 / -0

My family who are nurses are driving me nuts right now. They are loving the attention. And every long nurse post of Facebook live goes viral if they just cry in front of the camera. Meanwhile they go back to the hospital to take care of all 2 of their patients.
