‘Proper’ pondering Gen Z will save America: Devine
Remember when Jane Fonda, the eighty-year-old actress, triumphantly declared last year that COVID-19 was “God’s gift to the left” because it would help Joe Biden defeat Donald Trump and turn America into a socialist paradise?
Be careful what you wish for, left one.
The repressive bans, the compulsory vaccination and masking, the disruption of schools and universities and the brutal restriction of the social life of young people for a virus that basically does not affect them have generations consequences.
When old rulers scold children and young people for “selfishness”, if they don’t allow themselves to be beaten three times, occasionally let the mask slip under their noses or try to have fun in the sun, it is clear who is actually selfish.
It is not the generation that, quite indiscriminately, bears the brunt of the pandemic emergency measures to protect the elderly and obese.
Generation Z, ages 9-25, have a tiny risk of dying from COVID-19 or being hospitalized, but they’ve missed school and sports and lost jobs and opportunities. At an age where socializing with their peers is crucial, they have suffered isolation from curfews and closings that have put a massive strain on their mental health.
“We were locked up for the best years of our lives, high school and college were ruined,” says 16-year-old Tim Korshunov.
Now they are rebelling against the liberal establishment that betrayed them.
What will come as a big shock to the Boomers, the Gen Z’ers go conservative – or at least reject the woken up cultural soup they were born into.
You can see the trends on their favorite social media platform, TikTok. It was TikTokers who helped the anti-establishment anti-Biden chant “Let’s Go Brandon” go viral at college games.
“That’s the slogan of our generation,” says Korshunov.

The first generation who didn’t know life before the cell phone became the largest generation on earth last year. And by 2024, Gen Z and Millennials will be the largest voter bloc.
But unlike Millennials, many of whom have gullibly accepted the left indoctrination of their elders, Generation Z is skeptical and trusts fewer authorities. They check reality through their own research and trust their colleagues on social media more than established sources of information.
The top influencers on TikTok – young people producing 10 to 15 second videos – are refreshingly devastating about the dishonest meta-narratives being spread by mainstream media, be it the glorification of the Marxist organization BLM or the false branding by 18 year old Kyle Rittenhouse as a white racist.
Entering the TikTok influencer market is the future for the right people and so far, so good.
The largest conservative network for young people on the platform is “Today is America”, which appeals to 55 million users under the age of 33, with a network of 260 young “content creators” from across the US making short videos on their phones with pro -american, pro-conservative, pro-capitalist issues, often with ironic humor.
“We don’t care if you are libertarian or conservative. . . or all forms of the ideological spectrum. . . as long as we’re on the right side and we’re all promoting America, ”says TIA co-founder Cam Rafizadeh, a 25-year-old entrepreneur.
One of TIA’s TikTok videos, titled “Liberals After Watching Mainstream Media And Blindly Believing In It,” features a CNBC still that claims the double masking is “Efficiency: 75%” and “Triple Mask ” has. Efficiency: 90%. ”A young man stands in front of the screen and silently puts several masks over his face and eyes.
Another video begins with a young woman sipping a cup of coffee and saying, “Since when do girls prefer. . . ”Flashes on the screen over images of boys in drag. The words “… To” then appear over pictures of Leo DiCaprio, Prince William, Tom Brady and various male types.
The popular Manhattan influencer “thedebralea” promotes traditional family values. “Motherhood is the greatest blessing in life,” she says in one of her posts.
Cam and his younger brother Liam, 21, got into the ideas business by chance.
Over time, the North Carolinians found themselves caught up in the pandemic and opened an online shop selling Trump gear and patriotic goods. They used social media influencers to market their t-shirts, but, according to Cam, “these people have been brutally attacked, molested and threatened.”
One of their young TikTokers was sent a bloody box of animal intestines to his family. Others were drugged, their families threatened and they were bullied in school, including by teachers who did not approve of their conservative achievements.
Many of its creators decided to leave TikTok.
“My brother and I thought it was terrifying that something like this was going on in our country,” says Cam.
So they quit their jobs and went from a merchandising company to a nonprofit pro-America community of Generation Z influencers who protected them, helped them grow their brands, and gave them cameras to share more professional video for Make YouTube or Rumble.
“I felt a serious calling,” says Cam. “I had a feeling that is it. If we don’t do that, we will lose our land. ”
The brothers recruited smart Gen Zers into the organization. Korshunov, for example, dropped out of school and became head of development at TIA.
Their director of strategy, 25-year-old Ben Geller, has just been elected a Dutchess County’s fourth district MP.

He points to the unused electoral power of Gen Z, of which 70 percent of those eligible to vote stayed at home last year. Geller says many younger conservatives “are cautious or worried about being judged or losing their jobs. They don’t talk on social media for fear of retaliation from their employer or whipping by family members, so they stayed home or kept quiet because they feared something might happen. “
This is where TIA comes in and helps keep conservatism cool.
Of course, their creators come for the usual social media censorship. Every day someone is deleted or the platform is uninstalled. Up to three-quarters are on their third or fourth account, but TikTok’s algorithms allow them to win their audience back within a week or two, says Cam.
And he says the more oppression they face, the more Generation Z looks for forbidden ideas.
“I always tell people that Generation Z is going to save America.”
It will be up to Generation Z to rebuild institutions and replenish the moral capital wasted by their ancestors.
Eat your heart up, Hanoi Jane!
