Eric Swalwell Trolls Jim Jordan On Twitter: ‘Ohio Should Mandate Sexual Assault Reporting For Coaches’

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) seems to have a pathological need to draw attention to himself despite the fact that such attention usually comes back to bite him right on the ass.

Such is the case with a tweet Jordan sent out regarding vaccine mandates, according to Mediaite:

While many prominent conservatives have spoken out and even banned mandates against Covid-19, few have suggested there should be such prohibitions against all vaccine mandates. But on Tuesday, that’s appeared to be what Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) did, tweeting on Tuesday that his state should ban all vax mandates.

Really? All vaccine mandates should be banned? Does that include childhood vaccinations which keep our kids and school safe? Or would Jordan prefer if students were missing months of classroom time because they were constantly contracting one disease after another? Some would even wind up dead as a result, but at least the congressman would have an issue he could put on a bumper sticker.

That led Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) to fire off a devastating response to Jordan, referencing the sexual abuse scandal that took place while Jordan was a wrestling coach at Ohio State University. It has been alleged that Jordan knew abuse was taking place but didn’t report it to university administrators or the authorities:

That’s what you call burning someone down to the ashes on Twitter.

Well done, Congressman Swalwell.

Right-Wingers Want Rachel Maddow Booted From Twitter For Her Reporting On Ivermectin

Conservatives, Republicans, and right-wingers absolutely hate MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. Probably because she’s smart, strong, and counters their lies and conspiracy theories with facts and logic.

So it shouldn’t come as any surprise that many on the right are attacking Maddow for a report she did this week on the bogus COVID “cure,” ivermectin, which is sold as a deworming agent for cattle.

The report stated that a doctor in Oklahoma said rural hospitals in the state were seeing quite a few cases of ivermectin overdose. The story came from a local TV station in the Sooner State:

“A rural Oklahoma doctor said patients who are taking the horse de-wormer medication, ivermectin, to fight COVID-19 are causing emergency room and ambulance back ups.

“‘There’s a reason you have to have a doctor to get a prescription for this stuff because it can be dangerous,’ said Dr. Jason McElyea.”

That led a hospital system in Oklahoma to deny what Dr. McElyea claimed:

“Although Dr. Jason McElyea is not an employee of NHS Sequoyah, he is affiliated with a medical staffing group that provides coverage for our emergency room.

“With that said, Dr. McElyea has not worked at our Sallisaw location in over 2 months.

“NHS Sequoyah has not treated any patients due to complications related to taking ivermectin. This includes not treating any patients for ivermectin overdose.”

As you’d expect, the right-wing loons came out in droves, with a few of the more notable (some would say notorious) demanding that Maddow be punished for her report:

Ah, yes: Glenn Greenwald, who was once a darling of some of the left. More recently, however, he’s turned into a hack who makes frequent appearances on Fox News and usually sounds like little more than a Kremlin shill.

J.D. Vance, of course, is the author of Hillbilly Elegy who is now running to be the next Senator from Ohio and is just to the right of Atilla the Hun. He’s a pathetic excuse of a human being who deserves to lose in record fashion.

Seb Gorka? Really?! A man whose father was allegedly associated with a pro-Nazi group and has also espoused Nazi propaganda over the years. But he’s going to go after a journalist like Maddow?

Here’s the thing: Ivermectin has NEVER been approved as a treatment or cure for COVID-19. It’s a damn horse drug!

But the right-wingers are still bent out of shape that their overweight, failed, one-term former president, Donald Trump, has been banned from Twitter and now they want blood because Maddow dared to shed some light on the dangers of a phony coronavirus treatment that can indeed put you in the hospital.

Nice try, losers, but Rachel uses facts while all you’ve got are your tinfoil hats and lies.

Tucker Carlson Compares Criticism Of The Unvaccinated To ‘Lynchings’

Fox News host Tucker Carlson says he’s had enough of people daring to criticize those who refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine for the explosion of cases and hospitalizations taking place in states such as Alabama, Florida, and Texas, and he believes such criticism is the same as lynching.

Many of those refusing to get vaccinated, it should be noted, are anti-science conservatives who have all sorts of absurd reasons for not taking the shot, even claiming that they’re fearful they’ll be implanted with a computer microchip.

According to Carlson, the country is being misled by those who want Americans to get the vaccine:

“Unfortunately, the entire country is being manipulated by highly clever, ruthless people who are harnessing the worst qualities in human nature.”

And then Carlson made the ridiculous comparison to lynchings:

“You know, lynchings have happened throughout history — not just simply in this country, but in all countries — because there’s something in people that wants to turn on the unpopular kid and beat him to death — that’s like, who we are, it’s the ugliest part of who we are.”

Is it just me, or does that sound like some big-time psychological projection on Tucker’s part? He looks like the preppy douchebag bully type who would have gotten his jollies locking smaller kids in their lockers during high school.

There was also a tortured attempt by Carlson to equate racial hatred with urging people to take the COVID vaccine:

“Vaccinated, unvaccinated — white, black. These divisions, which we didn’t recognize a year ago are now defining our lives.

“And we’re being used. I mean, that’s the truth, if you want to subdue people, divide them and that’s exactly what they’re doing.”

Divide and conquer, Tucker? Isn’t that exactly what Donald Trump did for four years? And yet we never heard you say a word about Trump’s fondness for setting us against each other.

Tucker Carlson is an asshole. I’m willing to bet he and his entire family have been vaccinated, but he still wants to play the victim, because that’s all conservatives have left. They know their numbers are dwindling, so they’re resorting to fear, hate, and lies.

OAN Guest Attempts To Prove She Was Magnetized By COVID Vax – And Fails Miserably

If you’ve never watched One America News (OAN), then you’ve missed seeing what Fox News would look like if everyone who worked there was attempting to run a “news” network as some sort of gag, a video version of The Onion.

Sadly, however, OAN isn’t trying to do satire. They actually believe they’re engaged in passing along valuable information to their viewers, who must be among the most dimwitted saps on the planet.

Take, for example, a segment OAN ran involving the subject of COVID-19 vaccines magnetizing people. There is ZERO proof anyone has ever been turned magnetic by taking the vaccine, but One America devoted an entire segment to the issue, inviting a woman named Amelia Miller, who was introduced thusly by host Dan Ball:

“Here’s some of the headlines. There’s a lot of them out there, from the Miami Herald, BBC, Reuters, USA Today, all debunking it, saying that these social media folks that are putting it on are lying. It’s fake. There’s nothing, there’s no metal, no microchip, it’s all conspiracy theories — there’s no way that getting the shot would make your arm magnetic. So all the mainstream says there’s no way.”

And that, Ball admitted, makes him believe the magnetizing theory must be true, because he can’t accept what the BBC, Reuters, et al have to say on the matter:

“So I don’t know what to believe, because you hear me say all the time, I don’t believe in listening to the mainstream media, because they lie to us a lot or they spew a narrative.”

That’s when Amelia Miller joined the broadcast and began putting pieces of metal on her arm. They would stick for a second, but then they fell off, which kind of makes her claim invalid on its face.

Here, see for yourself:

Despite her obvious failure to prove her claim, Ball ended the segment by saying:

“I’m speechless. I’m just going to end the interview right there, and say thank you for telling your story, because it gets just more information out there and people asking questions about the legitimacy of this shot, how well does it work?”

It doesn’t work. She failed miserably. There is no such thing as any vaccine making metal stick to your skin. It has never happened and it never will, because it’s complete bullshit. It’s a bit like saying that if you lick an envelope, your tongue will suddenly become a tape dispenser. Good luck with that; it ain’t gonna happen.

If nothing else, at least One America News is good for laughs. Too bad they (and their viewers) don’t realize what a joke they are.

MAGA Faithful Attack ‘Amy Commie Barrett’ After She Refuses To Overturn Vaccine Mandate

On Thursday, Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett refused to overturn a vaccine mandate implemented at Indiana University to control the spread of COVID-19, and the MAGA faithful quickly lit into her on social media for failing to be a loyal acolyte and rule the way they wanted.

Barrett made her ruling without referring the case to the full Court, SCOTUS Blog noted:

Apparently, the enraged Trumpers were under the impression that Barrett would help them overturn vaccine mandates across the United States, even though it’s already established law that such requirements have been ruled legal in the past as they relate to public health.

Here’s some of the angry postings from the MAGA maniacs:

Sounds like the Trump disciples have buyer’s remorse. If only they felt the same way about their failed, one-term loser/traitor/insurrectionist former president.
