Kevin James, the “King of Queens” star, posted a short satirical clip on his YouTube channel last Friday.

This clip is funny because it perfectly illustrates the paranoia and fear that people are experiencing during the coronavirus crisis.

Just wait until "contact tracing" starts in some states across the US. Contact tracing programs are being created and managed by bureaucrats, what possibly could go wrong? Privacy intrusions will probably be the norm and don't be surprised if it's used for public surveillance.


"It is vital that, when we come out of the current crisis, we have not created a tool that enables data collection on the population, or on targeted sections of society, for surveillance," the letter said.

The statement points to concerns that the data could be used to trace the people someone has been in contact with – something which, in the wrong hands, could be highly detrimental to privacy

Yeah, I'm working atm, but it's on the stuff I'm proofing. They've got it in stuff from Mass especially. "If you get a call from a number with this or that prefix, answer. It's important. They're the contact tracers, and they're there to help. You'll be assigned a case manager. They'll ask you questions about where you were, who you were with and can identify, work with you to manage resources and make sure you stay in place, etc. ..." Spooky stuff.

Little too close to the truth.

We even have members here who would turn you in for less. Just a wild guess, but I'd say most of their shirts are brown.

Oh the libs are gonna have a Pelosi level meltdown over this. They can't see humor in anything and will instead "feel" (cuz they love feelings ya know) threatened somehow, someway by things like this. I just SMFH.

I've been watching all his videos, they are all pretty funny.

That one was spot on, tragically humorous.

Contact Tracers?

Sounds like sandmen more like.

Maybe they'll soon find themselves being hunted and "neutralised " for the betterment of society.

Just noting that when one sees "triggers" and "sheep" one can safely trace the path of information back to some state run troll farm.

One shouldn't form a worldview from shallow, unproven stereotypes, tropes and memes. Life is far more nuanced.

As for the video... it was way too long and full of subtext, brah.

This wins best video of the day!
Maybe technically satire but not too far from reality with all the snitch lines these days.

Again with the comedians getting it spot on - the TVs 'keep em all locked down' crowd likes to tell us how to dob-in an anti-masker and/or personal proximity invader because you know, they're clearly serial killers with their targeted death jogging and picnicing.

Comedians are the voice through which the public speak and are a snapshot of 'culture' - first it was Dave, then Ricky and now Kevin.

Good stuff.

Love his sense of humour!
"Kevin James" and "RUN!" aren't exactly words you think of being used together in a sentence, and it's titled "Out of Touch"! So many angles to look into here, lol!!

Pretty sure the COVID Gestapo is just around the corner with a significant portion of the population being Vichy French, at least in some states.

Here in Georgia, stores are full, people are out with very few masks being seen much less used. There is a growing number of cases of ThatwasabunchofBS itis and this virus they don't seem afraid at all of catching it.

Leave your phone, fit bit or any device at home. Print maps if you need to get somewhere new. Turn off or disable the GPS on your car.

Set up a home alone fake out, and strap the phone to your dog so they think your still at home.

Sarcasm....but kinda not. 🤔

He's gonna be blacklisted.

Hollywood stars aren't allowed to speak truth to power.

They're suppose to tow their commie masters line. (Also Truth how much of China now owns Hollywood).

Thanks for posting that. I'll be sharing it around.

However, I think that you missed the mark in calling it satirical. Sadly, I don't think that it's satirical at all. I think that portentous would be a more accurate adjective.

No, not sarcasm at all. No more than that video was "satire". More like good advice; the video and your post. Maybe even a portent.
