Ariana Grande managed to skip the entire grief cycle and returned to Manchester to do a “benefit concert” on Sunday. Regular readers should know what The New Nationalist (TNN) thinks of this whole spectacle. But even I was caught by surprise by Grande’s demeanor on stage, laughing at one of the so-called “bombing victims.” Watch the following video carefully. At first, she engages in totally inappropriate giggling but then follows with behavior that is even more revealing. She’s close to duping delight hysterics. This is supposed to be an inspiration? This type of disjointed behavior is quite widespread in deception events. The video goes on to show several more instances besides Grande. In fact, this video in its entirety is VERY revealing in terms of what we are dealing with. These people are getting off on it.
Now, I admit I grew up in a different time (1960s). Although baby boomers today are just as aberrant as the rest of the population, when I was a teenager, my cohorts would have been appalled at this display. But apparently the current youth generation — or at least a large segment of it — appears to find this conduct normal.
I witnessed the following comment on Reddit, where I posted the video. My takeaway: this didn’t “come off as laughing”, it IS laughing and in a disturbing sense. Something is missing in your soul if you can’t tell the difference. I don’t know what crowd you hang out with, but I have never witnessed this behavior surrounding grief.
DiscoTheWolf: I’ve seen so many people talk like that overwhelmed with sadness, I know I’ve even done it, especially in public, at times it comes off as laughing even if all you feel is pain/sadness.
It gets even worse. In fact, the Reddit comments and reactions to this video are very disturbing in itself. Here is an engagement that typifies it. We use the ironic handle “killthemessenger” for posts like this. In hindsight we should have named the whole site that.
Real_Johnny_Utah: Keep spreading fear and wasting whatever time you have left on this planet. Crack on old timer the times are a changing.
killthemessenger2017 : I’ll give you odds I last longer than you Lucifer.
In addition, Grande engages in a form of New Age cartoon-world mind spin when she says Olivia (the dead girl) wouldn’t have wanted her to cry. She claims Olivia’s mom said this to her, which is nonsense.
I have to say that in such grief or sad circumstances, I am super sentimental. This absolutely does not manifest itself in chortling. I would be hurt if people close to me were acting like this at my funeral. In fact, I had uncontrollable tears for my deceased elderly grandparents, a cousin I was close to and a mother-in-law who I was fond of. Yes, I may laugh at some point with fond remembrances, but way down the road.
Here is the NORMAL grief cycle. The first two stages can last for years, sometimes never really ending. Nobody at this phase has any interest in a celebrity. They would crawl into a hole and not come out.
SHOCK & DENIAL. You will probably react to learning of the loss with numbed disbelief. You may deny the reality of the loss on some level in order to avoid the pain. Shock provides emotional protection from being overwhelmed. This may last for weeks.
PAIN and GUILT follow as shock wears off. It’s replaced with the suffering and unbelievable pain. Although excruciating and almost unbearable, it is important that you experience the pain fully and not hide it, avoid it or escape from it with alcohol or drugs. You may have guilty feelings or remorse over things you did or didn’t do with your loved one. Life feels chaotic and scary during this phase.
Stage 5 is the upward turn. It’s typically years away, if ever.
Most TNN readers already get this and can skip this part. This video of real grief is for those still reading who may be caught up in the Arianna Grande celebrity inverted cartoon world. An observation: if you search for real grieving on You Tube it seems strangely scrubbed.
TNN’s takeway: Grande is part of a larger, staged deception. But there is also a dehumanizing, unnatural, Luciferian script being played out here — that it’s okay to chortle at suffering and death. Then there is an incomprehensible “flouride stare” New Age theme of quick forgiveness, don’t hate, and live and let live. Finally is the message that the entertaiment or “hits” must go on, ha ha. Give it a rest Grande. That is NOT the appropriate reaction or natural response. It is deeply disturbing to see so many buying into this.
