Shorter Mitch McConnell: Bad Idea to Let COVID Kill Off GOP Voters

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell implored unvaccinated Americans Tuesday to take the COVID-19 shot, issuing a stark and grave warning of a repeat of last year’s rising caseloads and shutdowns if people refuse to protect themselves from the coronavirus.

McConnell urged Americans to ignore the “demonstrably bad advice” coming from pundits and others against the vaccines. As cases skyrocket, he noted that nearly all the new virus hospitalizations in the U.S. are among people who have not been vaccinated.

McConnell can read the statistics as well as anyone else. He knows that the Coronavirus is currently rampaging through Republican states, like Arkansas. He can read the obits and knows that long-timeRepublicans who have refused to get vaccinated are dying, like this fool. He knows that it isn't a smart idea to let his party turn into a lemming-like death cult.

He's not the only one. Even Sean {barf} Hannity has come to realize that advocating his viewers do things that increase their risk of death is not a good idea.

Here's what I remember: Back in the eighties and nineties, when AIDS was rampaging and mostly killing off gay men, there was no shortage of so-called pro-life conservatives were calling to just let them die. The late host of Radio Rwanda, OxyBoy Rush, would celebrate on the air when whenever a prominent gay man died of AIDS.

It would probably be conservative-grade cruel to suggest that those who have refused to wear masks or get vaccinated and who then contract Covid-19 be put into a special hospital ward, where they would get oxygen and a morphine drip until they either recover on their own or they don't.

Starting with the nazi pest from the Great White North trying to singlehandedly dispel the sterotype of the nice Canadian. And he won't need a drip since he am one. GF, kudos for 'dour'. Next, go for words of two syllables.

Tod edit that please!

Like Joy Reid said the other night on Colbert: "Why is Fox trying to kill it's own viewers?"

We should all just ignore his drivel. Don't even acknowledge his existence and Ms. Fit can delete anything he spews. I, for one, will no longer respond to his vile postings from now on.

So, by that logic, gay men who engage in risky behavior (despite knowing better) and get AIDS should be " be put into a special hospital ward, where they would get oxygen and a morphine drip" until they die?

Just trying to be consistent here....

The gay man didn't infect five random people by breathing on them in the street. No gay man ever denied there was a deadly disease called aids and spread it deliberately as political vice signaling. Different story with the Q mental defectives. You either get a vaccine and practice protective measures or you are part of Putin's murder/suicide death cult. And a pawn of traitors who don't care if you die or not if it means more trouble for the US. Follow the dirty Russian money.

B, don’t work so hard at being an asshole.

B, you’re sounding increasingly desperate and panicky.

Keep up the good work!

I just thought that I'd point out the similarities. You are the one being vindictive and using double standards.
My logic is sound. Your judgement is based on emotion and Feelz. If you truly believe what you say about Covid patients, then you should logically make the same judgement for those with AIDS who get it and spread it because they fail to use "proper precautions" to protect themselves and others....Sound familiar?
If your solution is valid for Covid patients, then it is valid for AIDS patients as well. The difference is that you are sympathetic to one side and choose to judge the other. (Note that I don't advocate your solution for either group, it is absurd and stupid both ways.)

People have been convicted and sent to jail for deliberately having sex and knowing they had AIDS.

Didn’t know that, did you?

dinthebeast said...

Also, gay men? Really? Far more people have been infected with HIV from regular old man on woman sex than from gay anything.
Everyone has known that for years.
Everyone, I guess, except those who still consume propaganda designed to make homosexuality look like a disease.

Not true:

No matter how much you and folks like you wish it to be different, gay men have a higher chance of, and as a population, a higher incidence of, AIDS.
Statistics, science and all that override the Feelz.
The truth is out there. Look for it.

Dark Avenger said...

Your article is 14 years old.

Your analogy is still false, as AIDS can’t be transmitted other than by direct contamination by bodily fluids.

So, you believe in aliens now?

My post wasn't about AIDS, so consider this an anti-hijacking effort.
