Do mothers still talk about the starving kids when their own kids refuse to eat their broccoli? Mine did, in the 50s… and when we called her on the illogic, she told us that it was a compare and contrast, not a donation. Our kids were never presented with that cliché … except to point out that they were being spared from hearing it…
Still more evidence that COVID-19 is on its way to becoming a predominantly Republican disease
Once again, then, we’re seeing the predicted real-world results from a buffoonish and incompetent Dear Leader figure attempting to pretend his way out of a world health crisis while stoking paranoia about actual health professionals and safety measures. We previously learned that masks have indeed been working quite well at stopping pandemic spread, thus turning Donald Trump’s anti-mask fetishes into another way for his party to kill off its own voters.
The COVID-19 pandemic is getting closer and closer to becoming a primarily Republican disease in this country. It can never be a fully Republican disease because the virus does not verify voting status, when traveling from one person’s cough to the next person’s lungs. But in places with high vaccination rates, herd immunity may soon come close to eradicating the virus by giving it few places to viably spread.
In pockets of vaccine resistance, meanwhile, whether it be Q-styled conspiracists, avid Trump supporters who still believe the pandemic is a hoax, or deplorables whose principle objection to getting vaccinated is that it appears to be what the liberals and book-learners want them to do, Americans are going to continue to die.
You have to look on the bright side. It’s morons refusing to get vaccinated and these morons vote republican.
