You accused me the other day of distorting your views.

The fact is they come prepackaged that way directly from you. I couldn’t distort them any further if I tried. Do you think Trump was criticized for his handling of COVID for political reasons? He was criticized because he lied, mocked mitigation measures, and generally did a shitty job of it.

Then consider this from a recent WaPo article: “In the bluest counties, since the beginning of July [2021] there have been approximately 9 covid-19 deaths per 100,000 population. In the reddest counties, there have been 47 deaths per 100,000 population.” Why do you think that it is? It’s because Trump Republicans are politicizing the vaccine.

Which side is staging demonstrations against “tyrants” like the one in the photo? Which side has politicized objective science and demonized a respected public health official? Which governor banned cruise ship vax requirements so his supporters would see him “owning the libs”? Which side is banning school mask mandates because “freedumb!”? What could be more political than that? And yet you come here with your vague BS about Dems wanting to “control” people with COVID measures. Why? For what purpose? Would that somehow win them votes? Of course not. What else would even motivate them? Everybody wants COVID to end regardless of politics. Only one side is politicizing it - the right. Claiming otherwise is a massive distortion.
