May 15 Word of the Day
A few weeks ago, no one had β€œcheugy” in their vocabulary . Now everything is saturated with the word. It’s in our heads. It’s in our homes. Everyone is asking: β€œAm I cheugy? Am I a basic ass bitch? Am I GUILTY of being cheugy?”

The proliferation of cheugy in the mainstream discourse can only be attributed to one source: mental terror. It’s an orchestrated psychological trap to make you question your tastes and interests in the eyes of others.

You are not a cheug. YOU’RE PERFECT!!!!

It is very suspicious that the cheugy mascot is a Minion, a literal cyclops, a deformed
yellow panopticon in overalls ... do not let the all-seeing eye to control you. Be vigilant. Resist cheugy psyops.
Becca is another victim of cheugy psyops. I saw the garbage truck take all her Ugg boots yesterday. She even removed β€œI LOVE The Office!” from all her dating profiles. She’s unrecognizable.

When someone is placed under House Arrest it usually means that they are kept at their home for a set period of time and cannot leave their home; this is usually more Lenient than being sent to prison but places like China put political prisoners under permanent house arrest where they are patrolled 24/7 such as when Human Rights lawyer Chen Guangcheng was placed under permanent house arrest after suing the Chinese government over forced abortions, he later escaped his house and fled to the US consulate where an agreement was made to send him to the USA.
COVID-19/Wuhan Virus lockdowns have also been compared to house arrest such as the new Lockdown on Wales that was implemented in October 2020 which has also been described as Solitary Confinement.
I still cannot believe how blind, self-taught lawyer Cheng Guangcheng managed to escape his house arrest... I also still cannot believe how he is a strong supporter of the RNC and POTUS Donald J. Trump after seeing his speech at the RNC during the 2020 US Election
