15. I think the Karen meme is being used by the would-be witch burners

It is a sexist term as is the term witch and denotes women rather than men as the sinners.
It seems to go straight back to Puritan New England. The judges of the women were the powerful male rulers aided by the "good" women of the community who
signaled their virtue by following the patriarchs lead.

I haven't seen much usage of "Ken."

Puritan New England was a patriarchal society as is our modern day society. Patriarchal societies tend to see power as a "natural" order of a hierarchy of men

A lot of time has been wasted normalizing Donald Trump who is basically the Lord of Misrule-a concept of Western European Middle Ages.

If if were a female Donald Trump that Putin had managed to install in the Oval Office, she would've been gone within 6 months.
