Many of the country's biggest food makers are telling grocers that they will have limited quantities of a number of their products, including items such as Rice Krispies Treats, Sour Patch Kids, some Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors, McCormick gourmet spices and Marie Callender's pot pies

one of the things which has happened, or at least i think it's fairly new, is that everyone just assumes that the media is the official mouthpiece of The Illuminati, not just of the state but of the Globalist Cabal.

Nothing wrong with that tone of that CNN tweet, what's the problem?

seriously, what parts of it are snide, and patronizing? I'm definitely missing something here.

It's written with the air of an exasperated parent explaining something to a greedy, petulant child. The use of the word 'limitless', as though their readership are nothing but wide-eyed simpletons looking to stuff their faces; talking about the "Before Times," as though they're telling a children's story.

You see it over and over. I've lost count of how many articles I've seen with headlines that basically read like the author rolling their eyes at anyone who isn't in their media/social bubble. All those headlines beginning with "No, ... " followed by something they're trying to refute.

Honestly, I'm at a loss. I don't get that impression or make those connections at all

OTOH, this is true, sure. But different from the posted example.

In the UK, there's practically now a whole mini-genre of article/tweet where someone takes great pleasure in the idea of scarcity and general hardship - in the idea of it happening to other people, at least - as if it instils moral fibre, or will help toughen up these spoiled millennial snowflakes, or something like that. But it invariably comes from conservatives, so maybe a bit different in intent from that CNN piece, I dunno.

It cuts both ways. You get plenty of people gloating about Brexit voters having to deal with the consequences of Brexit or anti-vaxxers being arrested or getting ill.

A lot of people seem to effectively want to live in a dictatorship they happen to agree with and where the people they don't like are severely punished for whatever it is they don't like about them. Rights are contingent on politics for far too many.
