He said nyet, sorry.
Provide some statistical evidence that the ant-vaxxers are “all trump loving ignorant white Americans”, as you claim.
BTW, I’m not a trumpie and I am fully vaccinated.
Biden wants to give them $100 to get jabbed. Yeah, that should do it. :P
Thanks for the correction…I guess I think of everything above Fresno Northern, CA, but that’s not accurate. Not familiar with Arbuckle. Hopefully it’s nicer and more sane than SF!
Northern CA is ground zero for a certain group of anti-vaxxers. Largely white, upper middle-class and wealthy women from the silicon valley region, San Fran, San Jose, etc. They seemed to have some influence with others like them in other regions of the country. There has been a contingent here in MA that largely comes from the more affluent suburbs in Eastern MA. I suspect they’re just bored bubbleheads with too much time and money on their hands and somehow took up a cause that helps them feel like they have some worth. It’s unfortunate that they’ve taken up an absurd non-issue and made it their religion, but we see that with all sorts of people these days. Qanon, BLM, Panty-fa, Disney fanatics, etc. These things have replaced the role that religion more commonly played in the past. A shared purpose and community of others like you. Except rather than having a moral construct as a foundation they have something either neutral to that or worse, something based on hatred.
Why are the anti-vaxxers always portrayed as trump-loving, white (often white supremacists) morons? Trump has been telling people to get vaccinated. Even CNN’s bozo’s (Cuomo and Lemon) claim that 37% of the unvaxxed are white republicans. There is no actual data for this so they are coming up with a very unscientific guess, and this being CNN, you can bet the guess is on the high side. But even if 37% is correct, who are the other 63% who are holding out on getting jabbed? All those black Qanon guys? Both of ‘em? The 3 Hispanic guys at CPAC? No, it’s mostly black and brown people who simply don’t trust the vaccine or the govt who is pushing it. I believe there are nearly 200 of those people who are registered republicans! So who are the remainder of the 63% that are not POC? White democrats and independents must make up a good chunk. What’s left? Asians? Only 14% of them are registered repubs compared to 33% who are dems. It seems to me that while there are certainly some unvaxxed slobs who fit the usual portrayal, they do not make up the majority of those who refuse to get vaccinated – They’re simply the easiest target for the left, who certainly aren’t going to point to the many black, brown, asian and sometimes white folks who make up part of their voting block.
And I’m getting tired of seeing vax percentages as relative to the overall population. Seeing a large segment of the population isn’t even eligible for the vaccination, this is dumb. Kids 12 and under are ~50m. So when I see stats that claim we’re only 49% fully vaccinated and then back out 50m kids, the real number is about 59% of those eligible. Now, how about those with natural immunity (they had covid) who decided not to get the shot? I have no idea how many of those there are but they count towards herd immunity, don’t they? Then there’s a small % who decided to not get the shot because of some medical reason. I know 2 such ppl who consulted their doc and decided to hold off for now.
Do you still have that suitcase???? :P
Yeah, because all those trumpists on the right are happy the wall construction was halted. C’mon, man! Read and think and use common sense.
“Some” is the key word and was inserted with a purpose. Not all…some.
Let me know when you’ve pointed any of the hyper-partisan posts of many of the regulars and I’ll take you more seriously.
Man, what’s your problem?
