Free donuts didn’t do it.
A complimentary cup of coffee didn’t seem to convince the clueless.
Even the lure of a red, white, and blue beer “This Buds For You if You Get a Vaccine” wasn’t enough to entice a sizable number of Americans to get the COVID 19 vaccine. Maybe it will be the free, one-size-fits-all coffins that should be offered by Batesville Casket Company in Indiana that will be the incentive to get the damn shot.
A life-saving procedure that to half of the country was a no-brainer- one they were clamoring and overjoyed to get- is a no-go to a segment of the population who clearly don’t use their brains.
Not when it comes to what they consider to be Dr. Fauci’s Fallacy.
Freedom Road is Paved With Lies
Oh, how these nonbelievers cling to their distortions and lies.
Oh, how they love to mock the truth. And science. Almost as much as they love to mock Dr. Antony Fauci, the American hero they have cast as a villain. Rand Paul is now talking about a Fauci criminal probe!
The sad fact is, these misguided folks, these non-believers are already infected with a virulent strain of an insidious virus, one we were warned about by Hillary Clinton in 1995. The Vast Right Conspiracy – Rightwingosis – that the First Lady alerted us to has indeed infiltrated our government, our media and infected a large swath of our population.
Primarily affecting Republicans, this group was susceptible due to a pre-existing weakened immune system, as a result of their predisposition to mistrust and fear of the other. As a result, they have been the perfect hosts to this toxic virus.
For now, there doesn’t appear to be any immediate cure let alone a vaccine. A cruel, destructive, and ultimately fatal virus that infects its victims with deadly misinformation, it is marked by the physical disintegration of the spine as it rapidly eats away at the cerebrum leaving only the most primitive parts of the brain. This is exemplified by a recent COVID patient in Louisiana who says he’d opt for hospitalization again over the vaccine.
The spread of this virus is surging as quickly as the Delta Variant.
A super spreader like last weekend’s CPAC in Dallas was the perfect breeding ground for a carrier like Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo) who threw the crowd some bloody red meat as she sunk her rabid teeth into all the naysayers sporting Don’t Fauci My Florida T-Shirts.
“Don’t come knocking on my door with your Fauci ouchie,’ she bellowed “You leave us the hell alone.”
If only the willfully unvaccinated would leave us alone and stay home if not vaccinated. Stay out of our restaurants, movie theatres, and concerts.
No proof of vaccination. No problem. No entrance.
Make it a requirement like Macon did in France and if you don’t have it, well, sorry pal, you’ll miss out on life.
Chances are higher you may anyway without getting the vaccine.
