CNN Ushers in 'Great Reset' Mentality with 'Before Times' Comment

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a blessing in disguise for the liberal left, and their pals in the mainstream media have gotten the message loud and clear.

For many Americans, there is a fear the the pandemic itself could be the harbinger of a great reset in which the socialist agenda of the radical left is ushered into reality thanks to the economic and cultural impacts of simply shutting the the nation down for over a year.  Many have pointed to the current labor shortage as proof of this, especially in circles where the unwillingness to work is being spun as some sort of “wage revolution”.

And while the “great reset” has long been considered an outlandish conspiracy theory by those who are looking to nudge the narrative surrounding the post-pandemic world, CNN is making it very clear that things have changed.

A CNN report said consumers can’t expect to shop like they did in the “Before Times” and highlighted manufacturers warning of limited food supplies:

If you hoped grocery stores this fall and winter would look like they did in the Before Times, with limitless options stretching out before you in the snack, drink, candy and frozen foods aisles, get ready for some disappointing news.

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 because of labor, commodity and transportation constraints throttling supply chains, according to emails viewed by CNN and interviews with grocers. Some suppliers are also telling grocers to cancel their promotions of these items and more over the holidays so products won’t disappear from store shelves as quickly.

Purchase limits from manufacturers were rare before the pandemic and are creating “lesser than full conditions” for customers in Morton Williams stores, said Steve Schwartz, director of sales at the New York area chain. Morton Williams is trying to tap secondary suppliers when its primary vendors for food and household essentials can’t fulfill orders. 

The capitalization of “Before Times” even seems to suggest that CNN wants us to recognize this distinction for years to come, making us wonder whether or not they’re reporting on the news or attempting to create it themselves?
