For help on how to follow a comic title,
1. They follow the Qublican line, which says “NO VACCINE, DON’T TRUST SCIENCE OR LOGIC BECAUSE IT’S ALL AGAINST WHAT YOU BELIEVE”.
2. They’re nitwits. They believe whatever nonsense they hear from whoever has been stroking their egos and making them feel “special”.
So you combine that and you get the current mess. A gaggle of unscrupulous politicians taking advantage of a group of nitwits who, as is always the case with nitwits, believe themselves to be the smartest people around. And the pols decided they could have some “fun” by claiming the pandemic didn’t really exist. That several of those pols have died of COVID infection just doesn’t matter to the nitwits, because “it’s all lies and gubmint propaganda to get us to have the chips and nanotech implanted”. Absolutely crazy. It’s the same exact group that was excited about “chemtrails” and heavy water a few years ago, and the same exact group that is “certain” the progress in microchips is due to the government slowly releasing alien technology from captured spaceships.
Yanno, I did the math and showed one of the “heavy water sprayed over the USA via being added to jet fuel to make white women sterile” idiots that every acre east of the Mississippi averaged a few millimeters of heavy water on it every year just due to rainfall and the absolute fact that every drop of water has some heavy hydrogen in it. They freaked out.
And yet another distraction from the 1/6 hearings.
Gorrell, as usual, does a PITIFUL job of distraction.
They are begging for the vaccine now, AFTER they’re in the hospital.
Way too late for that to help when you’re already sick.
Three stories, three different states. Which is enough depressing news for one morning.
The true core of conservatism occasionally reveals itself. I hope the lingering nature of the internet keeps the reveal from being forgotten this time around.
They have changed in only one thing in my lifetime, at one time both parties had the conspiracy driven white supremacists split between them, and now it’s all in the GQP.
Bok, of course, is pretending that NO ATHLETE EVER was gay or trans in past Olympics.
Which is foolish and silly but that’s how Qubs roll.
Anything to distract from the insurrection hearings, eh Bok?
PRETEND IT AIN’T HAPPENING, JUST GOTTA DISTRACT!
Oh? And just where is your “neck of the woods”?
And it’s no secret that I live just north of Memphis in Tipton County, Tennessee.
So don’t even go there.
It’s been done before, and it’ll be done again. The politicians are afraid of blowback from the anti vaxxers, but the real truth is, there aren’t that many of them.
The SCOTUS examined this in 1905. Their conclusion was “either take the shot or move where there isn’t a requirement to take it”. All wrapped up in legal terms, of course.
The liberty secured by the Constitution of the United States does not import an absolute right in each person to be at all times, and in all circumstances, wholly freed from restraint, nor is it an element in such liberty that one person, or a minority of persons residing in any community and enjoying the benefits of its local government, should have power to dominate the majority when supported in their action by the authority of the State.
It is within the police power of a State to enact a compulsory vaccination law, and it is for the legislature, and not for the courts, to determine in the first instance whether vaccination is or is not the best mode for the prevention of smallpox and the protection of the public health.
There being obvious reasons for such exception, the fact that children, under certain circumstances, are excepted from the operation of the law does not deny the equal protection of the laws to adults if the statute is applicable equally to all adults in like condition.
The whole dance Trump and Co were doing with the police was to prevent them dispersing the mob of rioters.
With luck, they’ll get charged with something that will put them in jail for a long time. Conspiracy to commit treason would be a good one.
And made up the most ignorant picture imaginable to go with it.
