The Soyciety Pages: Crunchy C*** Rod Dreher Has a Meltdown

The Very Online Neurotics are dispensing all sorts of medical advice. But they seem to be ignoring the advice that people -- especially those who are anxious, neurotic, emotional, or prone to obsessive behavior -- ought to limit their use of Twitter and social media.

These platforms make those suffering from anxiety more anxious, neurotics more filled with neuroses, the emotionally fragile more emotionally labile, and make obsessives feel like being an obsessive is normal, because, look! Social media is filled with obsessives!

So this guy wants to dispense medical advice and shriek about people being too stupid to quarantine while continuing to refuse to quarantine himself from social media -- or at least sharply limit his (over) use of it -- which has been a very standard recommendation given to people since as as early as 2014 or so.

It's called a Digital Detox.

And the people who must need a Digital Detox... are, of course, the very same ones who tell you that they Don't Have a Problem. And that they can quit. Any. Time. They. Want.

If you don't know who this guy is -- as one person says, he's a "poor man's Andrew Sullivan." He used to annoy conservatives while writing as the "Crunchy Con," I think for National Review. (And National Review has really proven itself as the main Grifter Class incubator of c***servative writers.)

At any rate, he's freaking out so much that longtime readers are unfollowing him for their own mental health.

Fake Twitter Physician, heal thyself.

Spoiler alert: It wasn't true. But Rod Dreher got his neurotic venting out, and that's all that matters.

Now he tells us of an unnamed doctor friend who tells him of a "nearly-overwhelmed hospital treating COVID19 patients."

Multiple people either ask him for the name of this hospital or flat-out say he's lying.

As far as I know, he has still not presented the name of this alleged hospital where people are "nearly overwhelemed treating COVID19," despite his claim that he'd ask the "doctor friend" if he could name the hospital.

My new favorite joke works well here:

These guys think they know which hospital, where the ER doctors are "overwhelmed" dealing with coronavirus patients, Rod Dreher's " " " " friend " " " " must work at:

As I mentioned, some of his readers have decided to get off this Crazy Train:

As I've said before, panic is also a virally-transmitted infectious disease.

And some people are not only refusing to self-isolate, but are deliberately infecting as many people as possible with their own hysteria.
