ANOTHER TIKTOK NURSE VIDEO – But this one is a bit different
The World Stage
The Dancing Nurses Phenomenon was Pure Cringe Propaganda | Opinion
The cringe dancing nurses phenomenon was an unprecedented and unprofessional event that raised questions about the motives behind it.
Remember during the alleged “COVID-19 pandemic”, a peculiar phenomenon emerged on social media, which became known as the “dancing nurses” trend? If somehow you missed it, this trend involved doctors, nurses and healthcare workers sharing choreographed dance videos on platforms like TikTok, often wearing their uniforms and sometimes in clinical settings. While the perceived intent behind these videos may have been to “boost morale and cope with the stress of the pandemic”, the time and resources required to organise, choreograph, and film these dances, and the fact that they were promoted and elevated in social media and the mainstream media, raises concerns and questions about their true purpose.
Many critics argue that the dancing nurses videos were a form of propaganda, aimed at promoting the idea that the so-called “pandemic” was a serious and dangerous threat to mankind. These critics contend that the videos were orchestrated, promoted and elevated to create increased awareness of a reported threat and instil a sense of fear and urgency in people around the world.
“We were told we had to willingly plunge ourselves into a Great Depression because hospitals are being overwhelmed. Meanwhile, TikTok is full of videos of hospital staff performing choreographed dance routines. What a joke. This whole thing. Infuriating.”Matt Walsh – Twitter
Origins and Impact
The dancing nurses trend began on social media as early as March 2020 and persisted for some time, with a number of videos garnering millions of views. These videos often featured nurses performing elaborate dance routines, sometimes in clinical settings, which raised concerns about professional ethics, standards and guidelines. The time and resources required to organise, choreograph, and film these dances raised questions about how nurses and hospital staff managed to engage in such activities while focusing on their primary responsibilities, especially as it was claimed they were “overwhelmed” at the time. The dances were often complex and well-coordinated, which suggested that they were not spontaneous acts but rather a deliberate and organised effort. Although most of the “dancing nurses” videos had a distinct amateur feel, with the use of a single handheld camera, some videos had much more elaborate and sophisticated production incorporating multiple camera angles, including drone footage, and would have required significant editing.
The trend extended to mainstream media, with some outlets reporting on the phenomenon and its potential implications for the nursing profession. The videos were not only shared on social media but also featured in traditional news outlets, further amplifying their reach and impact.
Consequences & Backlash
Unprecedented and Unprofessional
The sight of nurses and hospital staff dancing in synchronised routines on social media was an unprecedented departure from strict rules and professional standards and expectations of the medical community, nothing of the sort had been seen before. The videos raised concerns about the professional conduct of nurses, the time and resources involved in creating these videos, and the motives behind their promotion in social media and mainstream media.
A study analysing TikTok videos found 356 violations of Code of Ethics provisions, social networking principles, and social media guidelines in the “dancing nurses” videos. Some of the videos contained content that could be construed as inopportune and even sexually suggestive, raising concerns about the professional image of nurses.
The videos not only raised concerns about professional standards and guidelines but also led to disciplinary action for some healthcare workers, such as two Namibian trainee nurses who faced disciplinary action after posting a video of themselves dancing inside a health clinic. The Welwitchia Health Training Centre called the dancing “unacceptable behaviour” and demanded an explanation. Ordinarily one would expect this kind of reaction from an employer in a busy and demanding working environment, especially when lives literally depend on it, but during a supposed deadly pandemic the rules and regulations went out the window apparently.
Healthcare workers are known for their dedication and commitment to saving lives, and the dancing nurses videos seemed to trivialise the seriousness of a “pandemic” and the challenges faced by healthcare workers. If the doctors and nurses were so busy dealing with such an unprecedented “health emergency”, how did they find the time to organise such videos? All the while the public were being told that “hospitals are like war zones.”
“It already feels like a war zone. You cannot go into A&E because it is full of suspected Covid-19 patients. Doctors are having to take decisions about who to treat and who to abandon already. Operations are being cancelled, and we are nowhere near the height of the crisis.”The Guardian – Anonymous source of course
Promotion and Elevation
The “dancing nurses” videos gained significant attention on social media platforms where they were shared, commented on, and even copied by other users. Mainstream media outlets also covered the weird phenomenon, framing it as “spreading joy” and a way to boost morale. This elevation of the videos in both social and mainstream media suggests that there was a concerted effort to promote this unconventional behaviour as a form of propaganda.
The timing and coordination of the dancing nurses videos raised questions about their true purpose. Some argued that these videos were a worldwide PR stunt to increase “support for the health system,” (save the NHS etc.) but they were not coordinated with the main message of the pandemic lockdowns and the “overwhelmed healthcare system”. Others suggested that the videos were spontaneous acts that inadvertently exposed the lies of the pandemic narrative. In reality, the videos were another way for the biosecurity state to promote a “worldwide threat” to humanity that didn't otherwise exist. It was all one big show.
5th Generation Warfare
The phenomenon of the cringe dancing nurses can be seen as a form of fifth-generation warfare propaganda due to its potential to manipulate public perception and sow discord. Fifth-generation warfare is a concept that encompasses various forms of non-kinetic military action, such as social engineering, misinformation, cyberattacks, and the use of emerging technologies like artificial intelligence and fully autonomous systems. In this context, propaganda plays a significant role in shaping perceptions and manipulating cognitions. Some examples of subtle and sophisticated propaganda techniques in fifth-generation warfare include:
- Social engineering: Manipulating public opinion through the use of psychological tactics and techniques to create a desired social outcome.
- Misinformation: Deliberately spreading false information to cause confusion and misinterpretation, often using advanced technologies to disseminate information quickly and efficiently.
- Cyberattacks: Attacking computer systems, networks, or digital platforms to disrupt or destroy critical infrastructure, steal sensitive data, or manipulate public opinion.
- Artificial intelligence and autonomous systems: Utilising AI and autonomous technologies to gather and analyse information, as well as to develop and execute strategies and tactics.
- Propaganda techniques: Employing various psychological and emotional manipulation tactics, such as name-calling, bandwagon, testimonial, plain folks, transfer, glittering generalities, and card stacking, to influence public opinion.
- Disinformation campaigns: Creating and spreading false or misleading information to manipulate public opinion, often using advanced technologies to target specific audiences or groups.
- Covert propaganda: Employing secret or disguised sources to spread information, such as unsigned political advertisements or clandestine radio stations using false names.
- Censorship is a significant aspect of 5GW, as it is used to control the flow of information and shape public perception. This form of warfare is characterised by its focus on information and perception, and it represents a shift from physical conflict to a battle of narratives and influence.
The use of propaganda, fake news, and the manipulation of public opinion are key elements of 5GW, making censorship a powerful tool in this type of warfare. These techniques are often used in combination to create a comprehensive and effective propaganda strategy, making it difficult for audiences to recognise and counteract the influence of these tactics.
Public Awareness Campaign
The embarrassing dancing nurses phenomenon during the reported “COVID-19 pandemic” was an unprecedented and unprofessional event that was promoted and elevated in social media and mainstream media because it suited the narrative of the emerging biosecurity state. While some may argue that these videos were a way for healthcare workers to cope with stress, the motives behind their promotion and the blatant disregard of nurses professional standards raise concerns about their true purpose and the possible role of propaganda in this phenomenon. Many see the videos as a form of propaganda that manipulated public opinion. Regardless of the intent behind these videos, they have left a lasting impact on the nursing profession and the public's perception of the so-called “pandemic”.
