Anti-Vaxxers Are Now Claiming The COVID Vaccine Changes Your Race

The people who are opposed to anyone getting vaccinated for deadly diseases such as smallpox, flu, or even the novel coronavirus live in a fact-free world where the only source of information consists of conspiracy theories they find on the internet from others who share their bizarre worldview. Science, medicine, and logic do not exist for such easily deluded individuals.

But a new theory circulating among the anti-vaxxer crowd may well be the most absurd yet: If you take the vaccine for COVID-19, it will change you to another race.

The Daily Beast reports that there’s a strain of misinformation circulating that tells people the coronavirus vaccine threatens to turn the human race into a mutated pro-human:

“This long-simmering idea, which could not only help to steer some people away from vaccines but also fan the flames of already volatile cultural divisions and conflicts, came into stark focus in mid-March, when a meme spread across pandemic denialist Telegram channels, featuring a large image of two sheep fucking, and a block of text that reads: ‘DO NOT BREED WITH SHEEP.’

“‘People who are vaccinated will have modified DNA,’ it continues. ‘No one discusses that DNA is passed onto the next generation. The risk that your children will marry into other cultures is possibly now shadowed by the fact that your children may marry into a COVID vaxed gene group potentially shortening their lives and that of others.'”

Another anti-vaccine poster went a step further, breathlessly opining that those who are vaccinated suddenly become a threat to the unvaccinated:

“They are now genetically modified humans,” that user posted in a community chat last month. “They are not even technically human anymore. Vaccinated people are honestly a threat to humanity as a whole.”

Did you know you had been genetically modified? It must be true; it was on the internet!

There’s also the race change theory for those who wear their tinfoil hats a few sizes too small:

“Only vaccinated people will marry each other while non vaccinated will also get married,” one Redditor wrote earlier this year. “[It] will split the human race into a fake race. The Vaccinated Race.”

Oh my gosh! Does that mean all those flu vaccines we’ve taken for nearly a hundred years have turned us all into flu virus superspreaders without our knowledge?! Make it stop! Soylent Green is people!!!

Let’s all take a few deep breaths and listen to what medical professionals have to say about the matter.

Paul Knoepfler, a cell biologist and genetics researcher at the University of California, Davis, said this about the nutso shit floating around on the World Wide Web:

“I don’t see any way the vaccines could even unintentionally cause genetic changes. It’s just not going to happen.”

More deep breaths. Are those gills on the side of your neck that you’re breathing through? In that case, I have to ask: Did you get Moderna, Pfizer, or Johnson & Johnson?

Some people will believe anything, won’t they?

Trump Slapped With $1 Trillion Lawsuit For The Enormous U.S. COVID Death Toll

Everywhere he looks, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump sees legal obstacles, any one of which may wind up leading to him being put on trial and having to serve major prison time.

Now there’s a new legal problem for Trump, and this one could well send him to the poorhouse.

NewJersey.com reports that the Donald is being sued for the sum of $1 trillion for the way he mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic, and the person who filed the lawsuit isn’t even an attorney. Instead, he’s a convicted murderer who’s currently on parole:

“Arnett Thomas never thought he would be battling Donald Trump in court.  

“Thomas, now 71, disabled and living in a government-sponsored housing complex in Orange came to file a lawsuit in federal court in Newark that blames Trump for America’s massive — and growing — COVID-19 death toll.”

Thomas wastes no time explaining why he’s decided to file such a lawsuit, and he doesn’t spare any words:

“The former president literally became the very domestic enemy to the Constitution he swore to defend.

“The point of all of this is how Trump dealt with the pandemic. He drove people to dying.”

The punishment should fit the crime, Thomas believes. And since nearly 570,000 Americans are already dead from the disease, $1 trillion sounds like a fitting amount.

Even though Thomas wrote the lawsuit himself, he’s currently seeking to have an attorney take the case. And he’s also managed to round up 75 co-plaintiffs so far, but that number will probably increase as news of the suit begins to spread.

Thomas also believes that if Trump had done his job and battled the virus the way he should have, things would have been very different — for the nation and for the former president:

“Trump allowed the disease to spread. What he did was politically motivated. If Trump would have handled this pandemic in a proper way he would have been elected [again]. Trump got kicked out because of the way he handled it.”

Instead, Trump told the nation COVID would disappear just as quickly as it had arrived. He pooh-pooed the mounting death toll and muzzled medical experts such as Dr. Anthony Fauci. He failed to do what he promised to do when he took the oath of office: To protect the country from all enemies, foreign and domestic. There should be a price to pay for that.

When you think of it that way, $1 trillion doesn’t seem like nearly enough.

Enraged Trumpers Explode With Anger After Ivanka Urges Americans To Get Vaccinated

On Wednesday, Ivanka Trump got vaccinated for COVID-19, and she proudly shared her immunization in Instagram, along with this message:

“Today, I got the shot!!! I hope that you do too! Thank you Nurse Torres!!!”

A post shared by Ivanka Trump (@ivankatrump)

Ivanka should be praised for her posting and encouragement that others follow her lead and also get vaccinated for coronavirus. That’s the only way we’ll ever be able to get the country back to normal and greatly reduce the death toll from this horrific pandemic.

But not everyone saw it that way, and they quickly flocked to Ivanka’s post and began making angry, hateful, and ignorant responses. Here’s some of what you’ll see if you visit Ivanka’s posting:

rice488: “No thanks! With a 99% survival rate, I shall pass. With Bill Gates involved I will not get one”

kenny_vv: “Hell no. Why would you post this?”

katherineljackson: “Hell no. Quit telling perfectly healthy people to take this so called ‘vaccine’.”

tash_poonka: “No thank you! I have immune system for a reason.”

rmgvd: “Bummer. I was hoping you were above this kind of virtue signaling.”

Of course, none of this should surprise anyone. A recent poll showed that among American surveyed, white Republicans are among the most hostile to taking the COVID vaccine.

The good news: Fewer Republicans means less ignorance and unwillingness to do something for your fellow Americans.

Washed-Up Former Rock Star Ted Nugent Just Made The Dumbest Statement EVER About COVID-19

Decades ago, before he became a right-wing nutjob who called for killing former President Barack Obama and made a horrific sexist slur against Hillary Clinton, Ted Nugent cut a couple of good albums and had a few hits that did reasonably well on the charts.

Nowadays, however, Nugent is lucky if he can even draw a crowd to see him stumble his way through a few songs so he can collect a few hundred bucks.

But in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic the entire world is suffering through, Ted’s poorly-attended ho-hum concerts have been canceled so they don’t become superspreader events and add to the death toll from the disease.

Rather than accepting that he cannot hold concerts right now, Nugent posted a whiny (not to mention moronic) video on Facebook in which he made what may well be the most clueless statement yet uttered about COVID:

“You know, I guess I would ask you — because I’m addicted to truth, logic and common sense — and my common-sense meter would demand the answer to why weren’t we shut down for COVID one through 18? COVID-1 — and there was a COVID 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 — COVID one through 18 didn’t shut anything down but woah, COVID-19!”

Really, Ted?

Is it possible that Nugent is so damn stupid that he doesn’t know how the name COVID-19 came about and that there weren’t 18 other forms that preceded it? If so, here’s some wisdom courtesy of the fact-check site Snopes.com:

“The respiratory disease COVID-19 was named in February 2020 for the coronavirus that causes it — SARS-CoV-2 — and the year in which the first disease case was reported — 2019. Following that logic, Nugent’s proclamation of a ‘COVID one through 18’ would suggest that there had been 18 years of coronavirus infection rates at a global scale, which is unfounded.”

That was all social media needed to rake Teddy over the coals for his massive ignorance:

Ted once told an interviewer that he had never done drugs in his life. Based on what a clueless fool he is, maybe he should have.

Coronavirus Donald Trump GOP Healthcare WTF?!

Two-Thirds Of Republicans Say They Still Trust Donald Trump For ‘Medical Advice’

Just in case anyone has forgotten, a year ago, in April of 2020, former President Donald Trump suggested during a White House daily briefing on the coronavirus that an “injection” of disinfectant into the human body could help stop the deadly disease, remarking:

“I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”

Yet despite this, a new poll shows that fully two-thirds of Republicans who still support the failed, one-term loser former POTUS would gladly take medical advice from Dr. Donald, even though the medical condition he likely has the most personal experience with is some form of a sexually transmitted disease.

According to Mediaite:

“After nearly three months out of office, former President Donald Trump still holds significant influence over Republican voters’ medical decisions — the same voters who are most likely to say they will not be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“Trump was by far the least trusted among all respondents, at just 29 percent, including 6 percent of Democrats and 29 percent of Independents. But among Republicans, a whopping 66 percent said they trust Trump ‘a lot’ or ‘somewhat’ for medical advice.”

That same poll also shows that many Republicans don’t plan to ever receive a vaccine for COVID-19, which would seem to suggest there will soon be many fewer GOP voters. No wonder states like Georgia and Texas are busy trying to keep likely Democratic voters from casting a ballot. They know they’re outnumbered and can only win by cheating.

So where does this new poll leave us? Pretty much right back where we began when Trump first ran for the White House. Millions of Americans are willfully ignoring facts and the truth and choosing to take the advice of a man who lies more often than he breathes.

Thankfully, Donald Trump is no longer president. But his moronic influence on those who are easily deluded remains strong. That’s why we have to remain vigilant. And it’s also the perfect reason everyone that opposes Trump should get a COVID vaccine.
