Facebook is a menace. COVID-19 is a menace. Conservatism is a cesspool. Together, those three ingredients have created a toxic stew of malevolent death and devastation.

Today’s cautionary tale is Wanda.

Lots of things work and are safe, but conservatives reject them out of ideological idiocy. Like democracy. And voting. 

Not to mention, if huge ad campaigns weren’t necessary to convince people to do stuff, advertising wouldn’t exist.

At this point, it seems like those Facebook warnings don’t communicate “check out the truth of the matter” to these people. Rather, it feeds into that “block, censor, and threaten” motif from the previous meme. They know the truth, and evil Facebook and DemoncRATS and Joe Biden are all trying to bully them into science. Because reasons. 

What does the booster do? It prevents people from dying in hospitals and reduces transmission by some measure. You might still catch COVID-19, but if you’re home sick with flu-like symptoms and nothing more, that sure as hell beats being intubated in a hospital as your organs shut down. Should be pretty freakin’ obvious.

To these people, “freedom” means the unfettered ability to infect other people, because they’ve convinced themselves that 99.9% survive infection (their made-up number), and they’ll never be in that small percentage who die or are seriously incapacitated by the disease. And a big part of that arrogant indifference is their religion—their god will protect them from disease. It’s those heathens in the Big City who will suffer.

Hydroxychloroquine? Ivermectin? 

It’s shocking how afraid they are of a vaccine literally “tested” on 2 billion people and counting, but they’re happy to play guinea pig with unapproved substances they read about on Facebook. Even when said substances are horse dewormer.

Not to mention, as we all knew, they only cared about FDA approval when it suited their talking points. “It’s not approved, it’s ‘experimental!’” Final approval for the Pfizer vaccine didn’t change any of their minds.

One week after that Snow White meme, Wanda’s husband Tommy dies. That one was quick, holy shit. Wanda is pissed because some people discussed it on Facebook—and not because Facebook miseducated her and her family into refusing the vaccine or other life-protecting precautions, like masking. 

The problem here is that these decisions aren’t strictly personal ones: They actually do impact others. She can’t say “you have nothing to do with [this decision]” when those decisions clog hospital beds and impact those who did take proper precautions, and those who might need medical care for non-COVID emergencies. Not to mention, those decisions could impact other people, which should be obvious for people who profess to follow a religion that commands everyone to love their neighbors. 

Which brings us to ...
banti (3).jpg
Enter Cobie, Wanda’s daughter, who seems to be the only person in the family who isn’t infected with COVID-19. Her dad (Wanda’s husband), is dead of COVID-19. Wanda is now in the hospital. Wanda’s son and Cobie’s brother, Hunter/Hunk, is also in the hospital, with pneumonia. Grandma is home with COVID-19 too. The blood of Jesus isn’t enough, which is why they’re in a hospital, and it wasn’t enough to protect them from the virus, because it really doesn’t care about anyone’s religion.

“I refuse to believe anything different” should be the official slogan of the conservative movement.

You do know that's not true, right?
Over 12,000 vacinated folks have been hospitalized...over 600 of those died.
So...why you lying?
...Pfizer...
Sure, they're to be trusted.
Google "largest criminal fine in history"...see who's name shows up.
Hint...it's for healthcare fraud.


...jus sayin'. :whistle:

Your stats don't prove what he said isn't true.

You also left out how many have died and been hospitalized in the same time period without the vaccination.

I didn't write it, Markos "Kos" Moulitsas of the Daily Kos wrote it. The link is upfront, Sorry I wasn't clear in the reading room forum, But I'll defend it.

Even if your point had any validity, it doesn't negate the fact booster shots will prevent people from dying in the hospitals.
...Pfizer...

Wtf? The quote for Pfizer was

Your babbling about criminal fines and fraud. it was about Approved or unapproved didn't change those people's mind, and is true.
...jus sayin'. :whistle:
liar
so you're channeling Tucker Carlson now, the guy who's jes asking questions that have already been answered.

Where did you get 6k from, this was less than a month ago

>>>”The new data suggests 1,507 people (about 0.001%) of those fully vaccinated people died from COVID-19.”


...also what was the median age of those who died?

Six hundred, not 6k...so your figure is even higher.

My only point was to show there is disinformation on both sides. :wink:

No we're not moving away from anything. "Mandatory" vaccinations have been the norm since I was born.
I've had vaccinations, no choice, I know you did too.
Which is a good thing and now with mRNA Tech even better.
