America’s Parrot Syndrome

Most of us at one time or another have seen and heard a bird talk. Some species and types of birds can have a rather large vocabulary. We find it amazing and funny at first but usually tire of the relentless repeating of phrases. We get to a point where we hope a cover will be put over the cage to shut up the relentless jabber.

Training a bird to talk is all about repetition. Saying a phrase over and over again until the bird starts to mimic the words and phrases. has discovered that this type of training not only works for birds but for people as well. Especially those so inclined to get all of their news from a few left-wing sources.

Repetition from the likes of NBC news, MSNBC, CNN and the New York Times has turned a good percentage of so called “enlightened” news junkies into parrots. Below are some of the typical phrases repeated by the bird brains:

  • Systematic Racism – No phrase gets thrown around so much with so little explanation than this one. From politicians to actors, professors and diversity and inclusion “experts” they all squawk it. All you have to do is say it and millions just repeat it as if it is true. We have yet to hear one system in America that is racist, but that stops none of them from continuing to parrot the line.

  • January 6th was an “Insurrection” - This one is said more than “Polly wants a cracker.” The talking heads on TV along with politicians and DC deep staters love to repeat this one. One must ask if they actually know what an insurrection is? Terrible as the riot was does any clear-thinking person think a rioter with twist ties and another with a Viking hat were going to take over the government? This was no more an insurrection than BLM protestors attacking a police station or Antifa goons attacking a Federal building in Portland. I’m sure AOC was scared to death even with capitol police protections, but nowhere near as frightened as the residents close to the summer riots she often supported.

  • COVID Pandemic could last another 7 years - In order to keep the news parrots watching and repeating the trainers in media and government must continue to scare us. Trump was a favorite for this but now COVID takes center stage. Power and control are much easier to hold on to when the subjects cower in fear.

  • Math and grades are racist - I bet some of you did not know that grading math on right and wrong answers is racist. Schools are beginning to teach a curriculum called “Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction” sponsored by the Gates Foundation. It supports the notion that “White supremacy culture shows up in math classrooms when: the focus is on getting the ‘right’ answer.” In addition, some school districts are eliminating grades given they appear to favor certain races. We don’t know about you, but we prefer to flown by pilots and our health monitored by doctors that got the right answers in school.

Millions of Americans have the parrot syndrome. You see it on social media and in the class rooms of our universities. You see it in Hollywood entertainment and in company board rooms. So many that gave up free thinking exploration, debate and challenging speech for the safety of comfortable phrases. The parrots think they are smart and enlightened, but in reality, they are just waiting for the next phrase to memorize.
