Peter Hotez, MD, Baylor College of Medicine:
"...we’ve not really come to a real national dialogue about what happened after May 1, 2021. That was the day the White House announced that there are so many Covid vaccines that any American who wants to get vaccinated can get vaccinated. Yet we lost another 200,000-300,000 Americans after that date. Those who were defiant to vaccines were overwhelmingly in red states, and the redder the county as measured by Trump voters in the 2020 election, the higher the vaccine refusal and the greater the loss of life."
"It wasn’t by accident. It was a deliberate effort by members of the House Freedom Caucus, in the House, some U.S. senators, amplified nightly on Fox News."
"I don’t even call it misinformation or disinformation anymore. I call it anti-science aggression, to convince millions of Americans not to take a Covid vaccine. And at least 200,000 Americans between May 1 and the end of 2021 died needlessly from Covid because of it. And everyone’s afraid to talk about it because it’s very unpleasant to have to point out that these deaths occurred along such a strict partisan divide. Even the White House won’t talk about it in that way."
Monkeypox is spreading, it will eventually get into schools.
What will the AVs do?
I think there'll be a new RWNJ fashion: pock-marked faces.
The pock-marked face will mean, "I owned them libzz".
You got to admit, they are that daft. 😁
Okay , so , are we not supposed to feel sorry for these people and welcome them with open arms because we now understand that people ( trump and his ilk ) and the media ( Fox and fucks ) took advantage of their patriotism ? You know , their country…she is being threatened in her way of life and the democrats “ new hoax” COVID.
To the best of my ability I can no longer participate in dialogue with these dumb-asses. And maybe I’m a dim bulb myself but I have a certain amount of respect for life. You know , if only they were just removing themselves from the roster I’d feel differently but they are a scorched earth politic . I truly hate them . I could go on with some true life analogies but I’m 6 White Russians into whats becoming a Sunday night . Seriously , we’re kinda fucked and they’re everywhere and there’s no real sign of enlightenment . except the James Webb . Seriously , WTF is 👉 ?
Prof Peter Hotez is totally badass!
Once Typhoid Donnie's "fake news" propaganda took hold, conservatives could dismiss anything that wasn't convenient, and follow Donnie's alternative fake treatments. Because he knows more than the doctors.
His leadership was not to "look weak" by wearing a mask or allowing anyone around him to wear a mask—or even admit to having the disease when he was near death. They loved crowding unmasked into packed indoor arenas to see him. They didn't even learn a lesson from Herman Cain.
After he had hardened his fans against facts during that first year, there was no stopping the spread.
MEANWHILE IN COMMUNIST CHINA:
AMERIKKKA SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF ITSELF. OH, BUT THOSE COMMIES LIE. PROVE IT ASSWIPES.
This is another article on this milestone-one that we should never have reached, but for people repeating lies and politicians making their bones on lies.
It should be stunning, but nobody cares anymore.
And it's not over. We'll hit 2 million if we're not careful. So many dead is a tragedy, no matter what the reason.
We should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing this to happen.
This article is a stunning visual reminder of what we lost and how we can't ever make up for it.
Read it if you really want to see how badly we blew this.
This is an interesting report-an illustrated article on how the hell did we get here at 1 million deaths, and what the hell were we thinking?
God, we're such fucking stupid people. We could have avoided this, but like most insipid humans, we thought we knew better than any damn virologist or scientist.
We're paying the price. We'll keep paying until the most stupid of us are dead. That's the reality of Darwin's Law-you break it, you wind up paying for your stupidity.
I'm also going to make another prognostication: before this is all over with (gone to endemic, possibly in 2 more years) we'll have shattered 2 million dead.
Don't laugh. We never thought we'd see 1 million, didn't we, not that long ago..2 years ago.
I keep waiting for the great awakening among antivaxxers that they’ve been acting dangerously stupid, and have been killing themselves, family, friends, and acquaintances, and doing it because their misleaders were able to count on votes from the survivors as they all owned the libs.
Their politicians have to live in fear of the realization and the anger it would release as the rank and file figures out they were expendable casualties their leaders used to motivate them to vote. They might take their little tiki torches and surround MTG’s, Desantis’, Abbot’s, Jordan’s, Tucker’s etc houses and seek vengeance for all their dead.
I’m still waiting but not hopeful. It’s inevitable but when? When will the idiots wake up to being used like they have?
Let me get this straight. The hardest of the hardcore GQPers are committing suicide via covid, and I'm supposed to think that's a bad thing?
Have as it bros and she-bros. I suggest going to the nearest crowded bar, unmasked, and celebrating for as long as possible.
