Anti-Vaxxers Coronavirus Social Media WTF?!

MT Greene Gets Slapped Down For Posting Blatant Lie That Anti-Vaxxers Are Being Denied Medical Treatment

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) went on fact-free, extended Twitter rant (19 tweets!) on Saturday, spewing conspiracy theories, vitriol, and plenty of whining as she compared what she called “Before COVID” and “After COVID,” even going to far as to suggest (incorrectly) that some people who aren’t vaccinated are being denied medical treatment.

Greene asserted in her tweetstorm that the only reason the government is urging Americans to get vaccinated is to enrich pharmaceutical companies, which is more than a bit hypocritical when you consider that she owns stock in companies that are producing the vaccine:

Greene holds stock in AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson, each worth between $1,000 and $15,000, according to an August 13, 2020, filing from Greene with the clerk of the House of Representatives.

Here are some of the lowlights from Greene’s social media meltdown:

Is any of what Greene alleges true? Of course not! The woman hasn’t said anything accurate or factual since she announced she was running for Congress. And she’s only accelerated her bullshit since getting elected.

Reaction to Greene’s stupidity was immediate and harsh:

 

UPDATE: Greene’s Twitter account has been permanently suspended for spreading lies and misinformation about COVID.

Alyssa Milano Laid Some Major Truth On The MAGA Faithful – And They Lost Their Angry Minds

The daily totals in the War on COVID-19 are staggering, with 214,000 cases being reported in the United States every day, an increase of 83% over the past two weeks alone. Hospitalizations are up 8% and deaths have increased 3% over that same two-week period.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that the fully vaccinated who contract COVID are experiencing only mild flu-like symptoms which quickly abate, especially if the person has contracted the Omicron variant, which is more transmissible than Delta but far less lethal.

Clearly, as every study across the world has shown, the key to battling COVID is to get vaccinated and boosted, a three-shot regimen that is virtually painless and has almost no side effects.

And yet, a closer look at the data shows that those who voted for Donald Trump are less likely to get vaccinated and more likely to die from the virus, according to NPR:

NPR looked at deaths per 100,000 people in roughly 3,000 counties across the U.S. from May 2021, the point at which vaccinations widely became available. People living in counties that went 60% or higher for Trump in November 2020 had 2.73 times the death rates of those that went for Biden. Counties with an even higher share of the vote for Trump saw higher COVID-19 mortality rates.

In October, the reddest tenth of the country saw death rates that were six times higher than the bluest tenth, according to Charles Gaba, an independent health care analyst who’s been tracking partisanship trends during the pandemic and helped to review NPR’s methodology. Those numbers have dropped slightly in recent weeks, Gaba says: “It’s back down to around 5.5 times higher.”

All of this led actress and progressive activist Alyssa Milano to post a tweet which spelled out the need for everyone to get vaccinated:

Fully vaccinated means no hospitalization, no ventilator, and no long-term health impact from COVID. It’s really that simple.

But to the MAGA faithful, Milano might just as well have been telling them they should stop breathing altogether as a precaution. So they vented their enraged, stunted minds on Twitter as if doing so would place a magic veil of immunity around them and their loved ones:

Trump Fanatic Trashes Donald For Saying He Supports Booster Shots: ‘F*ck Donald Trump!’

On Sunday in Dallas, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump admitted that he was fully vaccinated for COVID and had even received the booster shot to protect himself from the deadly respiratory illness.

CNN reports:

According to video tweeted by O’Reilly’s “No Spin News,” the former Fox News host says, “Both the President and I are vaxxed” and then asks Trump, “Did you get the booster?”

“Yes,” Trump says to a smattering of boos in the audience. “Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t,” Trump says in the video, seemingly trying to quiet the boos. “That’s all right, it’s a very tiny group over there.”

Trump went on to tell those who were refusing to get vaccinated that they were playing a silly game:

“Take credit for it. Take credit for it. It’s great. What we’ve done is historic. Don’t let them take it away. Don’t take it away from ourselves. You are playing right into their hands when you sort of like, ‘oh, the vaccine.’ If you don’t want to take it, you shouldn’t be forced to take it. No mandates. But take credit, because we saved tens of millions of lives. Take credit. Don’t let them take that away from you.”

For once, Trump is right. Everyone should get vaccinated. It’s the wise and considerate thing to do and the best way to finally get us beyond this pandemic.

But don’t tell that to a mega-MAGA Trump fanatic named Allison Wonderland, who posted a profane video on Instagram in which she denounced the ex-president:

“I know this is going to be an unpopular opinion and it truly does pain me to say it, but f*ck Donald Trump! He is now trying to say that by us doubting the jab, that we’re playing right into their hands. What?!”

Wonderland also suggested (incorrectly) that the COVID vaccine is causing deaths:

“Do you guys not see the problem with this?! I mean, if he truly cared about saving whatever’s left of this country, and he truly cared about you, he should be more concerned about exposing the overwhelming number of adverse reactions and deaths from the jab. But no!

“Why is he still touting this product that’s killing people?”

Probably because it isn’t killing people. However, COVID is taking the lives of at least 1,000 Americans every single day.

Here’s the unhinged Ms. Wonderland, who is clearly in need of a brain:

Anti-Vaxxers Coronavirus Donald Trump Jr. The Biden Administration WTF?!

Don Jr. Is Upset Americans Aren’t Rioting Over The Biden Administration’s Domestic Policies

Donald Trump Jr. is furious that Americans aren’t in the streets rioting the way they are in Europe over vaccine mandates, and he seems to be suggesting that anyone who disagrees with the Biden administration’s COVID policies should be destroying property.

Appearing on Fox News Saturday evening, Junior told host Dan Bongino:

“You don’t hear what’s going on as it relates to the riots in Europe now against the vaccine mandates because our media wants to block that out. They’re going to make sure that you don’t hear about it because they don’t want you getting those kinds of ideas that freedom may actually exist in some parts of the world. I mean, Europe is pushing back, and America is sitting there like sheep. Oh, you know, this is great. We’ll just go along with you know what these guys who’ve gotten nothing right over these last two years tell us.”

 

When you consider that Junior’s daddy incited an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol in January, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the spawn of the failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president would be calling for violence in the streets simply because the current administration is doing its best to control the virus Donald Trump allowed to spread unchecked for months, telling Americans to use disinfectant and bright light to combat COVID.

No matter that problem, the Trump solution is the same: Lies, hatred, and violence. Every last one of the Trump clan belongs behind bars.

Anti-Vaxxers Congress Sex Scandals Social Media

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.
