Whitlock: ‘Content as Queen’ is destroying mankind

We think we’re living in the age of content creators. We’re not. We’re living in the age of content destroyers.

We weaponized smartphones, arming them with social media platforms that turned IBM’s invention into a weapon of mass destruction. Women and children are being slaughtered first.

Pardon the generalization, but women and children desire attention the way men crave sex. Studies suggest men think about sex 19 times a day, or about as many times as women check Instagram for likes.

IG is the internet holy ground for attention and whores. Women seek attention and men hunt for whores. Bikinis and yoga pants are the lowest common denominator that tie men and women together on Instagram.

Facebook and Twitter rely on debauchery and criminal activity. Women are the “queen pins” of the social media dopamine epidemic. They sell dopamine hits on every internet corner.

Darnella Frazier is the dopamine GOAT. She recorded the George Floyd video, and America’s journalistic institutions made her a hero for doing so, awarding her a Pulitzer Prize for content that inspired mass destruction.

I’m not villainizing Darnella Frazier. She captured the final nine minutes of George Floyd’s 46 years on this earth. Her video told a tiny percentage of what led to Floyd’s death. It provided a distorted image of Floyd and Derek Chauvin. It provoked emotion, chaos, and division far more than it revealed truth.

That’s what content destroyers do. They unwittingly create distorted content that leads to destruction.

Young girls experience gender dysphoria at an alarming rate in modern America. They’re suffering depression at rates much higher than previous generations. We shouldn’t be surprised. They stare at their smartphones all day, swiping past pictures of seemingly perfectly sculpted women having the time of their lives, and they wonder why they don’t look like that or live like that. It’s all an illusion created by volunteer content destroyers.

The peer pressure to experiment with sex at ages 6, 7, and 8 is unprecedented. The pressure is driven by the sexualized content fueling the social media apps in our smartphones.

Last week, a state senator from Rhode Island, Tiara Mack, released a TikTok video of herself wearing a bikini, standing on her head, and twerking. Mack’s mission in life and politics is to teach young kids about sexuality and gender. She’s unapologetically black and queer. She wants to recruit more people to her way of life.

Credit Mack for having a life mission. Most content destroyers just want attention by any means necessary.

This week, a woman was captured on video climbing through a McDonald’s drive-through window to fix her own food because the employees said they couldn’t because they ran out of gloves. The woman obviously did not record herself. But her motive is clear. She wants attention.

That is the goal in life: attention. We’ve developed a generation with no higher calling or purpose than the seeking of attention and fame. Individual "Truman Shows." Everybody – women and men – wants to be the next Kim Kardashian. We spend every moment wondering if what we’re doing is worthy of a selfie, a tweet, an IG, or Facebook post.

Self-arazzi is more dangerous and damaging than paparazzi.

Three women vandalized a late-night french-fry restaurant in New York last week as a crowd of mostly men recorded them. Media reports claimed the drunken women were angered when an employee charged them $1.25 for a dipping sauce.

I don’t buy it. Drunk actions are sober thoughts. The women wanted attention. Videotaped debauchery and criminal activity are easy ways to get it. The women channeled their inner Tiara Mack.

Here’s the worst example.

On Wednesday, prosecutors in Philadelphia charged a 14-year-old girl with third-degree murder in the beating death of James Lambert, a 73-year-old man. Surveillance cameras captured a group of kids chasing and beating Lambert at 3 a.m. A 14-year-old boy was charged in the murder earlier this week.

According to media reports, Lambert asked the kids why they were out so late at night. Police said one of the young girls involved in the attack handed her cellphone to a 10-year-old boy and asked the child to record the attack on Lambert.

We’re obsessed with creating content. We’ve created content destroyers.

Smartphones and social media apps cultivate a deadly cultural narcissism. It’s impossible to love and respect others when you focus all of your attention on loving and admiring yourself. Modern culture baits us to see ourselves as individual gods. We self-worship at the churches we construct on Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat.

The children who videotaped themselves stoning and beating James Lambert to death reflect the values of our time, the culture we’ve cultivated. They’re as narcissistic as our leaders, our educators, our celebrities. They remind me of Sarah Lopez, the pro-abortion witness who testified before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.

Lopez called abortion an “act of self love.”

The content culture destroys women and children, which means it destroys mankind.
