Older cemeteries have large numbers of graves marked with “Spanish Flu” or “Influenza” and you’d think a walk through one would be sobering. The Turd Reich FluKluxKlaners like that grape Kool-aid too much though.
Who could have imagined the return of the “Know Nothings” in the 21st Century?
It isn’t just in the USA, the fools that believe in BS conspiracy theories are right around the world. In my previous home, the UK, at first they were first out the gates with vaccinations, but now languish. Where I now live, Austria, slightly below EU average…
However, there are a few shining examples, and I bring up Portugal not because I am also Portuguese, but damn it, Portugal has an astonishing 89% fully vaccinated and 97.5% with at least 1 dose (of the adult population). Only Iceland, Gibraltar, Pitcairn and maybe Malta and the UAE have better rates.
I wasn’t born in Portugal and have not lived in Portugal since 1994 so “pride” it is not, but I do have admiration for the folks in the ol’ mother country.
My birth country, I am sad to report, I have had classmates, classmates’ partners and their parents die of Covid-19. Even in SAfrica we have conspiracy nutters. It is insane.
Like traveling through a 100-year cycle of disillusionment
it’s always interesting how the refusenik trolls are so anxious to convert people to the cause of stupidity, so zealous about citing false evidence in flimsy efforts to demonstrate that they’re not lying through their teeth…
