Catchall thread: COVID deniers biting the dust & anti-mask/precautions dumb assery

Posted by bell_flower 
Oh look, another Faux-News Watching Trumpophile Who Called COVID a "Political Ploy" is now dead.

His wife released a statement that he would have retracted his statement as time went on. Nice try, Honey. PLENTY of people who USED THEIR BRAINS and comprehended the AMPLE EVIDENCE FROM REPUTABLE NEWS SOURCES took the virus seriously.

Not these Right Wing Nutjobs, who have zero brain power, understanding or empathy of anything unless it affects them directly.

He would have kept on spewing his nonsense on Farcebook and probably would have been one of those stupid protesters.

I read there's a huge overlap between these people and climate change deniers. Spreading this virus around on their way to the grave may actually cause less collateral damage.

That would not surprise me. People who don't trust science, don't believe evidence...I'm guessing there's ample anti-vax overlap, too.

And yet they are somehow completely willing to embrace computers, the internet, wifi, etc in order to spout their ridiculous convictions. Can't they just go full-on Amish and leave the rest of us alone?

Wish they would. If they were only taking themselves out of the gene pool, I wouldn't have a problem with any of it. Want to kill yourself because you're a moron? That's your choice. It's the innocent people they're taking down with them that infuriates me.

Me too. I'll cheer if they Darwinize themselves, it's the collateral damage I'm not happy with.

Ahhh...but Pence and Trump are praying for a miracle. They believe in religion over science, but forgetting that maybe the knowledge of science is something that we've been gifted so that we can help ourselves? Stop bugging God and do your jobs!

Edit to Add: I don't believe Trump has a religious bone in his body, but he just pretends to because he wants to appeal to the Evangelicals.

I don't know what is wrong with these people. It's not like people don't know what having Covid-19 entails. What blows my mind is breeders dragging their sprogs everywhere...no mask,,,no distancing. Glad I don't have sprogs but if I did, draggong them out with no mask and no distancing is the LAST thing I would do.These people are proof that ignorance and intransigency when changes are clearly needed kill.

Oh look, here is another willfully ignorant idiot, Hermain Cain who attended Trump's rally in OKC on June 20th and was photographed not wearing a mask.

On July 1st, THE SAME DAY HE WAS HOSPITALIZED, he supported (via tweet) Kristi Noem's position that people at the Rushmore 4th of July Klan rally did not need to wear masks or social distance.

Faux news is reporting what tremendous loss this is, and reminding people to "take it seriously" of course not mentioning his willful ignorance. And of course it CANNOT BE PROVEN he caught it at the rally. hitting head against a brick wall

This asshole was traveling everywhere and mingling with large groups of people WITHOUT WEARING A MASK. It's certainly not a tragedy to me that he's gone, but how many innocent people did he take with him?

What's it going to take with these anti-mask assholes?

I just saw that. The fact that the announcement he'd been hospitalized also stated emphatically that there was no way to know where he caught it is in no way suspicious, right? eye rolling smiley

Good riddance. I guess it makes me a bad person, but I honestly feel glad when one of these idiots dies.

If they were only taking out themselves, I'd say it's a self-solving problem and more power to them to get it over with. But they co-opt "my body, my choice," and then proceed to infect others with a debilitating and potentially deadly virus. So absolutely good riddance to the idiots who are spouting off about the virus being a hoax...I only feel sorry for the people trying desperately not to get sick while surrounded by these fucking morons.

Even medical providers are feeling the brunt of the anti-COVID sentiments. Not only in regard to patient volume, but I've read more than one account of patients getting belligerent and even violent with hospital staff because they were diagnosed with COVID-19 and they don't believe the virus exists.

Last I heard, the US was up to 156,000 deaths. I don't know how anyone could think this thing isn't real. America is far too stupid to handle a pandemic because it's too full of special snowflakes who think everything they don't agree with is a form of oppression. Unfortunately, the dumbassery of COVID deniers will also sicken and kill people who are trying to stay safe.
So in my FB feed I actually saw a friend of a friend post a link or story where some dumbass woman was insisting masks are dangerous and she caught Legionnaire's disease from her mask*.

I'm not a medical person, far from it, but even I know that Legionnaire's disease is a specific BACTERIA (not a virus) that can be found in freshwater, but is most often found in man-made industrial cooling systems, water towers, hot water heaters and plumbing.

Jaysus Fuck, these anti-mask people are stupid.

*Please tell me this woman was a fake profile and is part of a Russian disinformation campaign?

Why doesn't it hurt to be stupid?
Related to masks:

Our local news ran a story about a woman who is deaf. She can speak. She reads lips to understand what people are saying. You can probably guess what's coming.

The story was about her experience at Walmart. She asked an employee an unspecified question and asked him/her to remove the mask so she could read the employee's lips for the answer. She asked this of several employees, who would not do it. Que the drama and how she left the store "in tears" and we are supposed to feel sorry for her. I smelled a complaint in the making. Walmart issued a statement they were looking in to the matter.

I am 100% on Team Employee. These employees are coming into contact with many people each day and I do not blame them for wanting to limit their exposure as much as possible.

She should have brought a notepad and some paper and written out her question and asked an employee to write out the answer. Yes, it takes longer, but she could have taken responsibility for her own condition.

I think this shows an entitlement mindset during a pandemic.
I ventured out to a couple of local businesses Saturday and it was a fucking virus free-for-all. It was like they were actively TRYING to exchange plague germs.

Lesson learned, still not safe to leave home.
