First we were labeled as “Deplorables”…..
That’s what some people are calling themselves on Tik Tok recently and it means people with blood uncontaminated by the poison vaxx and the spike proteins.
You know, blood from God, untainted!
Not a term I was familiar with previously, but it apparently comes from Harry Potter:

Here are more details from the NY Post:
Some anti-vaxxers have proclaimed themselves “Purebloods” in a campaign of biological supremacy against those who received the COVID-19 vaccine.
“From now on, I refuse to be referred to as ‘unvaccinated,’” said conservative influencer Lyndsey Marie in a post last week. “I want everyone to now call me Pureblood.”
Her hashtags included #harrypotter, #pureblood and #unvaccinated.
Marie is most likely referring to a term more recently popularized by the “Harry Potter” series, which saw wizards and warlocks with the most magical progeny assigned as “purebloods” or “half-bloods” — as opposed to “muggles,” mere humans who practice magic.
Unvaccinated TikTokker Lyndsey Marie is urging like-minded followers to call themselves “pureblood” and promised merchandise emblazoned with the term.
Marie’s video has since racked up more than 396,000 views as she’s also promised followers a new line of merchandise emblazoned with “PUREBLOOD; Unmasked, Unvaxxed, Unafraid.”
Hashtag #pureblood has currently over 55 million views — a vast majority of which are good-faith Harry Potter fans. But a few users latched on to Marie’s movement.
“In like five, 10 years, maybe less, all the people who are unvaccinated — we’re gonna be hunted,” warned TikTokker @Leeannstar23, according to a Vice News story published Wednesday. The user has since removed the post.

“It’s gonna be like ‘Resident Evil.’ We’re gonna be the antidote, because everyone else is fucked, and we’re gonna be the only ones with pure blood,” they suggested.
The term is gaining steam elsewhere on social media. “Pureblood Patriots. Listen to me. The Great State of Mississippi will fight this discrimination. We welcome you all,” announced one self-appointed state spokesperson.

Here is the far-left slant, from Vice:
The term “pureblood” doesn’t exactly have the best connotations. But now unvaccinated people on TikTok are, er, trying to reclaim the term as a way to tout their “superiority” over their jabbed fellow citizens.
The phrase was popularized by J.K. Rowling’s villain Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter series as a way to distinguish between those with “pure” wizard ancestry and everyone else, drawing parallels with the Nazi doctrine of the “master race.” As a concept, basically, it’s been used to justify some of the worst crimes against humanity in history.
The new “pureblood” trend seems to have gotten a big boost from conservative TikToker influencer Lyndsey Marie in a post shared last week replete with hashtags like #harrypotter, #pureblood, and #unvaccinated.
“From now on, I refuse to be referred to as ‘unvaccinated,’” she declared. “I want everyone to now call me Pureblood.”
The video has since racked up nearly 250,000 views and Lyndsey Marie is now promising her followers that a line of “pureblood” merch (which will feature an image of a lion and the text, “PUREBLOOD; Unmasked, Unvaxxed, Unafraid.”)
Meanwhile, the term has inspired scores of other un-vaxxed social media users to make their own videos.
