"Now you go in for the Kill Shot. The kill shot [woof] with an ambush... it's deadly. Cause he doesn't see it coming," Fox News propagandist Jesse Waters incites the traitors at Turning Point convention to kill Dr. Anthony Fauci.
The Right is starting to get better at comedy and is making Lefties nervous... a meme first as comedy then as tragedy...
|Conservative Covid Killing Fields is literally is all about increasing their political power...|
MSNBC rightly called the Turning Points USA convention a "Celebration of Violence". Worse than that it's past time to realize the right has declared a civil war on American society; I say a civil war specifically, because it's not The Civil War and will not, most likely, ever resemble the 1860's. Instead a quarter of the American population are wedded to using whatever means available to achieve their thwarted political goals. This includes outright political violence, of course, but, over the past 2 years of the Pandemic has manifested itself as disseminating lies and encouraging their deluded followers to get sick and fight against any means adopted to curtail or stem the spread of Covid. It is ghastly but undeniable to conclude the leaders of the American Right believe by prolonging the Pandemic and sacrificing some of their voters, they can secure power in 2022 and possibly 2024.
The liberty secured by the Constitution of the United States does not import an absolute right in each person to be at all times, and in all circumstances, wholly freed from restraint, nor is it an element in such liberty that one person, or a minority of persons residing in any community and enjoying the benefits of its local government, should have power to dominate the majority when supported in their action by the authority of the State. It is within the police power of a State to enact a compulsory vaccination law, and it is for the legislature, and not for the courts to determine... Jacobson v. Massachusetts, Volume 197 U.S. 11 (1905)
Antivaxxers are Reactionary Nihlists, Anarchists, or crass conniving curs, who are violently stupid or actively ignorant. But possess the ability to spew bad faith far faster than your ability to rebut or debunk it. I've found no avenue of approach that they can not ignore or disingenuously elide.Like an armor all arguments bounce of their nihilistic brains. They've created a fantasy belief about "Liberty" which is I May Do as I Pleases and there is no such thing as Society, Government, Your Fellow Man, etc...
- It doesn't matter if you argue from Legal Precedent as with the above quoted Jacobson SCOTUS case or similar laws adopted throughout American history.
- You can not argue Morality, that antivaxx villains should embody the Christian principle of helping their fellow man because their Jesus wants them to oppress and dominate their fellow man.
- You can't argue Political Theory about the role of Government; because they don't believe Government can constrain them.
- You can't argue The Simpsons Reductio ad Absurdum by informing them their rights end at other peoples' lungs (an adapted analogy of the fist and nose).
- You can't Argue from Expertise because they can find their own "Doctors"/ Joe Rogan/ Candeath Owens who falsely tout Hydroxychloroquine or Ivermectin or Colloidal Silver or whatever chemical cocktail is fashionable at the moment.
- You can't argue Personal Experience known friends or family members who are immune-compromised, or have contracted Covid, or are suffering from Long Covid effects, or worse yet died, because they blithely avoid basic humanity and compassion for work colleagues, spouses, or family.
Because they don't care. They don't care. They lie with statistics. 1,000,000 dead out of 330,000,000? Pffft! Big Deal! Greater than 99% Survival Rate, which isn't true, but even if it was it would mean another couple million deaths. Thus, proving once again a single death is a tragedy but, a million is just a statistic.
They trot out the old propaganda falsehoods that the evil government (every Democrat and some Republicans except for New Messiah Ron DeathSantis or the Nebraska Ricketts) counts everyone who dies as a covid death! Car Accidents! Terminal Cancer! Fat! Diabetes! COMORBIDITIES!!!
So, as the Christmas Covid infection rate ramps up we'll see Hospitals and medical professionals stressed to breaking, read about more Herman Cain Award recipients, and Antivaxxers will claim that since they are alive and don't know anyone who has actually died of Covid it's all a Plandemic.
Over at the Best Website on the Internet Lawyers, Guns, and Money they ask Where is the Back-to-Back 2020 and 2021 Pandemic Champion Ron DeathSantis as Florida spirals up out of control with cases once again. I'll point out that DeSantis knows by simply ignoring the dead he wins favor with Conservatives across the Nation. In fact, right-wingers routinely claim by ignoring any mitigation, mask or vaccine mandates Florida is doing great and DeSantis is a Hero.
