Kelly thinks this is funny‽
We didn’t expect you to understand SKelly.
Kelley doesn’t care that new covid cases are on the rise as more and deadlier variants are spread across the country.
Like his hero, he wants them infected and doesn’t care how many people get sick, pass it on and die.
People are wearing masks again because there is a deadly virus on the loose, which had been brought under control by Biden’s massive SUCCESSFUL vaccination roll-out (after Trump dropped the ball and “Operation Warp Speed” turned out just to be warped) in its original alpha variant. But after ANTI-VAX, anti-science wacko extremists allowed it to mutate and evolve into a far more transmissible and deadly delta variant, masks are once again necessary.
So of course, THE ONES WHO CAUSED THIS PROBLEM are the ones who are going to WHINE MOST LOUDLY ABOUT IT.
Boo hoo. Wear your masks. They don’t seem to have any problem breathing under their KKK white hoods, but a mask?
And get your damn vaccine.
I don’t support voter suppression in any form (we Democrats know we can actually win fair, free and honest elections), and killing off your own voters is a particularly gruesome way to go about it (not really understanding the strategy here).
But what bothers me a lot more than TrumpubliQans engaged in a murder/suicide pact to kill off their own voters is the number of people who can’t get vaccinated because they are too young (“pro-life” TrumpubliQans killing off CHILDREN — oh yeah, they don’t count after they’re actually born) or too immunocompromised who they also want to offer up as human sacrifices on their virus-infested altar of hatred and anti-science ignorance.
So he doesn’t spit on you when he talks like you are doing to him.
Does SKELLEY also laugh at traffic accidents?
You’re my friend and you’re unvaccinated. You may be infected and spreading the variant without even knowing it.
FIRST: What red-collar guy understands isn’t relevant to mask guy’s behavior.
SECOND: (an example) Before Covid was a twinkle in some bat’s eye, lots (millions) of people wore masks when they were out in public. Because they wanted to protect the other people from colds.
THIRD: I can hear you quite clearly if you speak clearly from behind your mask. And I’m a lip reader because my hearing is starting to go. The “Mmph curph” speech bubble is a flat lie.
FOURTH: "Because people who have the Delta variant might infect me, and I prefer to avoid a trip through even a “minor” Covid infection. Because “minor” in medical terms can be pretty damn awful in layman terms.
FIFTH: Then there’s long haul stuff.
What’s to understand?
“We WANT them infected!”, right SKelley?
Makes you wish there was a flag for the cartoonist.
Because, unlike you, he believes in protecting others.
Because there is a f’ing pandemic stupid, and the delta version is dangerous and highly contagious! Read the papers you long for to publish your cartoons and you’d know why wearing masks is coming back. Really, is there any hope for you?
Skelley is in competition for the #JustPayneStupid award for the day. The reason the guy on the left is wearing a mask is because the idiot on the right didn’t.
No logical reason for ma$k$……but, it’s a Billion dollar busine$$ now.Follow the SCIENCE.
^Wouldn’t know Science if it bit him in the ass, so lets hope it does…
Although I was fully vaccinated at first opportunity months ago, I have resumed wearing a mask in public places. Delta has not yet become virulent in my area, but only 38% of locals are vaxxed. I think we need to once again normalize mask wearing, and I believe in the old adage: if you’re not part of the solution…
He’s wearing a mask because the other guy may not have been vaccinated and it’s not 100% guaranteed to work.
How stupid is this cartoonist? Apparently, basic science is beyond his understanding. Limited intelligence on display here.
To keep from possibly infecting those that aren’t. Nor a tough concept, Steve. Please try to use your two or three functioning brain cells, Steve.
Kelley… I am going to try not to unload on you, but I swear to God I am getting tired of this right wing BS on all levels. I have an adult member of my family who is not medically able to get the vaccine. I have a child in my family who is not old enough to get the vaccine. I got the vaccine. I wear a mask because I CAN STILL TRANSMIT THIS GOD DAMNED VIRUS TO EITHER OF THEM!
Stop putting my family at risk, and countless others, because you are too inconsiderate. You have a platform that could actually reach out to people and save their lives. We will reach herd immunity one way or another: Either vaccinate and save lives, or don’t and let a whole lot of republicans (and those they can infect) die.
Make the choice!
If you don’t want to help, at least stop being part of the problem.
Yeah Kelley, we know you don’t understand.
And it’s because you don’t want to understand.
It’s hard to understand when you don’t bother to listen.
The vaccine evidently “was” 97% ish effective.. I didn’t like those odds even before the delta variant and now.. If wearing a mask reduces my chances of catching Covid even a little.. I will wear that mask.
The chance of dying from covid for people under 60 is slim at best. People over 60 have a higher rate of death. The government mandates for masks is all about power.
It is remarkable how someone with such fine penmanship can be so stupid.
The funny part is that dumb people think they still have to wear a mask after being vaccinated. The even dumber people don’t realize the mask is as effective as a screen door on a submarine.
“I don’t understand why you’re wearing a mask.”
And that’s the problem. You don’t understand.
Maybe he’s a germaphobe. Maybe he’s just cautious. Maybe he read what the CDC has been saying about how the Delta virus can still be spread by people who have been vaccinated.
Probably he’s not a MAGHAT and gives a crap about whether we get over the Covid-19 epidemic.
He’s wearing a mask because he’s easily duped. It’s just the way democrats are.
I have been vaccinated and wear a mask. I remembered an old saying “He swam so far only to die at the shoreline “.
As part of the initial group of guinea pigs, in 2 weeks I go back for a blood test to see how robust the Pfizer vaccine is one year after vaccination. I also wear a mask when I’m inside stores and close to others – mainly because only a jerk would intentionally make others uncomfortable by not wearing one.
Maybe he cares more about possibly infecting others more than those others care…
Because enough people aren’t vaccinated in my city, and I find 4-10 deaths a week unacceptable. Since the vaccinated (even if they have no symptoms) may still infect the unvaccinated I wear the mask to protect THEM!
Spot on, Steve! The liberal folks who say they believe in science don’t actually. Fear is very useful for the ruling class.
Why is Kelley helping to kill people?
Why is it any of your business?
Covid aside; your art is trash.
It’s kind of funny when conservative cartoonists make it clear they don’t know two sh*ts about science and don’t give two sh*ts about people’s lives.
He’s wearing a mask, Mr. Hard-of-Hearing-Nitwit, because he lives in a part of the country suffering from a major delta-variant COVID-19 outbreak, whether or not he’s been vaccinated.
No one form of protection is 100% foolproof, especially against the delta variant. Layers of protection. Wow, Kelly is stupid not to get such a simple idea.
Obviously, Kelly is too young to remember the saying, “Belt and suspenders.”
From the NYT:
In yet another unexpected and unwelcome twist in the pandemic, fully immunized people with so-called breakthrough infections of the Delta variant may spread the virus to others just as easily as unvaccinated people, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a report published on Friday.
I don’t understand who buys these obnoxious cartoons?
I’ve made this comment before, but this actually happened to my husband. A maskless elderly woman actually asked him why he was still wearing a mask. Sheesh!
Because the vax is only 85 to 95% effective depending on how long ago you got the second shot. Delta and Booster shots are probly coming to your area soon.
Once again, Kelley mocks a sensible health precaution … as irresponsible as some of the cynical “educated” NJs on Fox News!
Because you can still catch Covid-19 despite being vaccinated. It’s not a binary thing. Vaccination greatly reduces the chance of getting sick from Covid, and nearly eliminates the possibility of dying from it. And because right-wing nut cases won’t so live up to their societal responsibilities, we are all endangered. Yes, I feel safer by being vaccinated and I wish some other people would as well, but until that happens, I’m going to recognize the danger and take appropriate precautions.
Again, it’s not binary. Vaccines reduce the threat tremendously, but doesn’t eliminate it.
So. Let’s see if I understand this. If I get vaccinated, I still have to wear a mask? If I’m vaccinated I can still get the virus, my chance of dying goes down a little, but there is also a chance of long term and dangerous side effects to the vaccine. If I don’t get the vaccine my chance of dying goes up a little (but is still dramatically, super low).
By taking an experimental, non-FDA approved vaccine, nobody will guarantee I won’t suffer from muscle pain, headache, fatigue, chills, diarrhea, acute myocardial infracation, cerebrovascular incidents, lymphadedopahty, blood clots, etc.
Furthermore, long term testing does not exist so it could cause some severe long term health effect.
But my chance of dying from Covid is less than 1% now?
Gosh. It is almost like masks and vaccinations are not about people’s health…..
You wear a mask to protect others. You know, as in “not selfish.” Even vaccinated people can carry and transmit Covid-19, even if they are not sick from it. (That’s the power of the vaccine.)
