Is this supposed to be the dumbest argument ever? If so, I endorse it in a such a competition.

Ideology and intent. Those are the delineating factors.

I'm not sure if you arrange comments differently to me, but all the comments I'm seeing on that post are doing the opposite of what you say, or they are obviously satire.

ETA: Oh, I see you mean the comments on the Tweet, rather than the comments in Reddit. OK, you can ignore me.

Why is it dumb? Anti-vaxxers and their enablers are keeping this pandemic rolling along, just so they can feel smug.

Nope.

There will be jabs and shots at the hospital, just not with the vaccine.

Tim Parsons: Kentucky pastor dies of Covid-19 as church preaches 'God is in control'
'We are saddened by the loss of our beloved Lead Pastor, Tim Parsons,' wrote the Lexington church in Kentucky in the Facebook post about his death

Tim Parsons: Kentucky pastor dies of Covid-19 as church preaches 'God is in control'

Pastor Tim Parsons of a Lexington church in Kentucky has died two weeks after being hospitalized for Covid-19 even as his church continued to advise members "not to worry" on its website because "God is in control." The Center Point Church announced the news of Parson's death on their Facebook page, with a picture of the deceased.

Not sure their god is the brightest bulb. Based on their beliefs, once that god kills off those idiots it is stuck with them for all eternity. Still, culling the flock is a concept I can get behind.

Milo Yianopolis, a right wing grifter who's fallen from grace, claims to have covid and also claims to be self-treating with intravenous ivermectin injections.

Quote:
If Milo’s telegram is to be believed, and no givens there, he is dying. He has posted plummeting SpO2% numbers and increasing heart rate over about a day, having injected ivermectin to treat apparent COVID.
https://twitter.com/EmilyGorcenski/s...17412019339264

Here's his original post showing a bloody veterinary needle and IV ivermectin:

https://twitter.com/RightWingWatch/s...74764347813891

Unfortunately, it's almost certainly just more lies from the notorious grifter. But fingers are crossed it's the one time he isn't lying!

ETA: I would bet that this is some gambit to claim that he was cured by Ivermectin. Nothing this guy says can be taken at face value.

Had a good laugh at this one:

A fun site. Lots of happy news there.

That Caleb Wallace guy left a wife whose never worked, three kids and a fourth on the way. His widow has no way to pay mounting bills.

What a foolish man. Horrible. Before he left this world did he ever even glimpse what he'd done?

Former CIA agent turned private sector conspiracy peddler, Robert David Steele, has drawn his last machine assisted breath.

Quote:
QAnon Anti-Vaxxer Called COVID a Hoax Even as His ‘Lungs Stopped Functioning’
A former CIA officer turned conspiracy theorist who claimed to be the first to call COVID-19 a hoax has died from COVID-19.

...


Steele’s death was confirmed by his friend and fellow conspiracy theorist Mark Tassi in a video posted to Instagram on Sunday evening. In the video Tassi says he was in touch with Steele in recent days and claimed the hospital had prevented the former CIA officer from using hydroxychloroquine tablets.
Another crank who's death will be blamed on hospital staff that didn't maintain his snake-oil regiment.

He might be into that sort of thing, in which case your gesture would have the opposite effect from intention.

Now try to get that image out of your mind, and definitely do not think the phrase "wet turtle".

It's going to take more than bleach to get that out of your brain. I'm thinking an entire brain transplant may be required.

In either sense.
In the last major USAian smallpox outbreak people were in fact forcibly vaccinated in New York, Boston and other cities. 'Vaccination Raids' were carried out.
And in 1919 people were shot by Health Police for not wearing masks.

I'm sure the Republicans would approve.

Here's his original post showing a bloody veterinary needle and IV ivermectin:

Unfortunately, it's almost certainly just more lies from the notorious grifter. But fingers are crossed it's the one time he isn't lying!

ETA: I would bet that this is some gambit to claim that he was cured by Ivermectin. Nothing this guy says can be taken at face value.
The grift is strong with Milo. Betting he will claim that nothing but the soothing touch of a pre-tween will help cure him.

That's a name I hadn't heard in a while. Let's hope it's true that he has COVID-19.

Another conservative radio host bites the dust. Any guesses on what felled Marc "Mr. Anti-Vax" Bernier?

Quote:
Conservative Radio Host Who Called Himself 'Mr. Anti-Vax' Dies from COVID After 3 Week Battle
Marc Bernier was originally hospitalized with COVID-19 on Aug. 7
https://people.com/health/conservati...3-week-battle/

3 weeks wasting much needed hospital resources.

Continue to be impressed in the divide between the grifter pundits who have quietly got their vaccines while still spreading covid misinformation and the lower levels morons who are actually dying because they believe this nonsense. I suppose they can be commended for sincerity and having the courage of their convictions, hope that was some consolation while they slowly choked to death as their lungs petrified with covid infection.

Give insurance companies the right to refuse reimbursement if un-vaccinated people contract Covid.
That would get us to 100% pretty quick.

How else would you know she cocked it all up?

I'll show myself out.

The messaging is stronger when you have an anti-vaxxer die of a vaccine preventable infection. It doesn't mean one is dancing on their graves.

But I'm not surprised that you would take this position. It must be difficult knowing being a Republican is a risk factor for believing in medical woo.
