The recent appointment of Demetre Daskalakis by President Biden as National Monkeypox Response Deputy Coordinator raised many eyebrows (and voices) in conservative quarters.
Gay man, cross-dresser, leather sado-masochist with a gym worked body covered in tattoos (most of them unsightly pentagram tattoos).
Daskalakis’ pentagram fetish also includes a pentagram baseball hat in addition to photos of him in ‘pentagram surroundings.’
There is a photo of him sticking out his tongue a la photos of young girls at bachelorette parties – where the tongues hang out in unison like appendages from slaughtered fowl hung to dry on a farmer’s fence.
Anyone would ask: what’s going on with the resume-qualified Director of the CDC Division of HIV Prevention who once oversaw the management of infectious diseases for the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene?
First let’s look at Monkeypox, the “disease” or virus or infection that would warrant such a high-grade appointment.
Monkeypox leaped into global news feeds like a bad SNL joke. Monkey what? Monkeypox can be traced to an international group of gay men who engaged in group sex Raves in the Canary Islands. Some of the men had monkeypox then spread the disease when they returned to Europe.
As the disease began to spread, the Word Police tried to change the name monkeypox to something generic because they said it insulted or was racist against monkeys, but it was too late. The name had already been enshrined in the public consciousness. By now there were already dire warnings of disaster, a la Dr. Fauci, of a pox pandemic that would reactivate the political covid lockdown industry.
But it didn’t happen that way.
In mid-September, there were only 21, 504 cases of MP nationwide and 56, 609 cases globally. The numbers were also rapidly declining and it very soon became obvious to most experts that this new “thing” would never reach the theatrical heights of covid but fizzle out like Alka Selzer.
News that almost half of monkeypox victims were HIV-positive wasn’t publicized freely, just covid’s ‘lockdown promoters’ downplayed the fact that a fair majority of covid patients were overweight. (Mentioning the overweight factor was tantamount to fat shaming.)
The news that monkeypox was on the decline was not a happy news for the (still vehement) covid mask-wearing ideologues eager for a new national health crisis. Still, some groups took pro-active steps, like a gay nudist group in Philadelphia that cancelled its August recreational meet up because of the threat of monkey pox.
Enter Demetre Daskalakis, thanks to identity politics-ridden Biden, intent on building a covid-like bureaucracy around the new threat called monkeypox.
Naturally, since monkeypox had its roots in some steamy faraway gay subculture, an lgbtq+ person would have to be put in charge of the new Biden bureaucracy.
That would fall on the shoulders of a Greek bearing tattoos and leather straps (‘Village People’ paraphernalia as Taylor Marshall put it).
It might be argued that tattoos and straps are only exterior distractions—costumes– and have nothing to do with qualifications or an ability to do the job.
Just look at Sam Brinton, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition in the Department of Energy, proof positive that extreme flamboyance (rubber dog masks for weekend parties) can equal brain power and even genius—think of Oscar Wilde, who boasted, “I have only to declare my genius!” at U.S. Immigration officials when he entered the country from Britain.
Brinton, however, went far beyond Oscar Wilde. Wilde merely showed attitude when he’d flip his scarf around his neck and put a flower into his lapel, whereas Brinton publicized his sexual fetishes (man in rubber down on all fours) as if they were extra credits earned at MIT.
In the Biden administration, so far only gay male appointees have divulged, via Instagram and other forms of social media, sexual peccadilloes that most people would keep secret. This sort of exhibitionism is influenced from leftist cultural norms, especially in the case of “non-binary” Brinton, who exemplifies everything that’s hot and current in the queer community.
Biden’s leftist ideological bias would naturally keep him away from gays who don’t take selfies of themselves in dog collars and rubber masks. As a result, he would naturally select candidates from the fringe borders of the radical queer community.
New-hire Rachel Levine as Biden’s assistant secretary of Health helped skyrocket the transgender movement; Sam Brinton, as stated, brought sexual fetishism, kink, and rubberized animal fantasies into the mainstream, while newcomer Demetre combines everything—kink, straps, hanging tongue, and Transvestite from Transylvania theater.
Then there’s the cherry on top: Satanic imagery in the form of a pentagram.
To most people, wearing a pentagram 24/7 announces to the world that you reject God or Christ and that you embrace evil and magic. Pentagram deniers, however, might remind you that the symbol was worn briefly in ancient Greece and Babylonia.
It’s a known fact that most Satanists deny the existence of Satan when asked about it, saying instead that they use the name as an oppositional symbol to counteract or challenge Christianity.
Saying you don’t believe in Satan when you really do is an authentic Satanic gesture because it involves lying.
The leftist media condemned conservative outlets for placing too much importance on Daskalakis’ pentagram tattoos.
‘The Advocate,’ for instance, reported that,
“Trolls, however, have targeted his tattoos shown on his personal Instagram page. Of the many tattoos, Daskalakis has one with a pentacle.
“That’s what made others on social media lose it. A gay doctor posting thirst traps and baring a pentacle tattoo? Many came to the conclusion that he’s a satanist.
‘I am certainly not a Satanist,’ Daskalakis tells The Advocate.
“And why do people think he is? ‘It’s because I wear high-fashion harnesses by Zana Bayne,’ he cheekily replies.
It would have been helpful if Daskalakis had answered the question rather than talk about “high fashion harnesses.”
Daskalakis, who was raised in the (symbol and image rich) Greek Orthodox faith, is certainly familiar with the world of symbols. But like many activist gay men who’ve submerged themselves in the polemics of the “movement,” it’s unlikely that he has any sort of church affiliation at this time.
Still, Daskalaski was quick to tell ‘Politico’ that the conservative press neglected to write about the large tattoo of Jesus on his stomach, seeming to suggest that the Jesus on his stomach is a sort of counterbalance to the pentagram on his left pec.
With one difference, however: the Jesus tattoo is really meant to be Jesus, whereas the pentagram is meant to be something else—perhaps an inverted, blunt architectural design– but certainly not, you know, the devil.
As a psychological glimpse into the nation’s first (and last) monkey pox czar, all this talk about a Jesus tattoo under the pec dominance of a pentagram tattoo is telling.
Yet it does not answer the question: why are we getting so many weird Biden appointees?
Pentagrams, dog masks, and rubber cod pieces do not an Administration make. Or do they?
Especially when Daskalaski says that these “thirst traps,” or tattoos “are part of his work.”
By that he means the tattoos and photos of himself stripping off his leather jacket to expose his bare chest that were taken for an ad campaign for the NYC Health Department. This sort of presentation, the monkey pox czar stated, helped give him “a level of trust with the people he’s trying to reach.”
As if the people he was trying to reach had to be sexually stimulated before they could be reached intellectually.
“I spend a lot of money on my tattoos and a lot of time in the gym. I’m showing it off,” he told ‘Politico.’
Add to that fact that so much of gay male culture is based on superficial attributes like good fashion and good looks and you might understand why the doctor has to stick his tongue out in photos like a lusty Kardashian to get his clients “to believe.”
Conservative writer Rod Dhere commented,
“Why do the Democrats promote such dark and strange people to high office? Somebody said on Twitter the other day that QAnon types freak out over the idea that the state is run by a Satanic cabal, and we all laugh at that … but then the president appoints to high office a gay sadomasochist who presents himself as a Satanist, so… “
In the ‘Politico’ interview, Daskalaski said that the stress he was feeling over the pentagram issue had caused him to cry in front of the reporter.
Could it be that those tears came as a result of his realization that the post of Monkeypox Czar won’t last long because monkeypox will never be a plague like AIDS?
That pox, of course, will never be a world ‘pandemic’ like HIV/ AIDS, or even what covid became under the magnifying glass of its lockdown promoters.
Yet it will continue to be promoted by a woke president who continues to cower before forceful leftist lobbies intent on shaping national policy.
