Unfortunately, CPAC panelists like Alex Berenson get cheered when they encourage deadly actions by Right-Wing Republicans. Sad.
Death wish granted?
Dr. Fauci pointed out that the Red States, for ideological reasons, are hesitant to take the vaccines. He said vaccinations should have nothing to do with politics as the virus does not know if one is Democratic, Republican, or independent. He said, people, sharing that ideology are dying for their irresponsibility. Jake Tapper then played a CPAC video that showed a panelist being cheered for being happy about America's inability to get to 90% vaccination rates.
"They were hoping," CPAC panelists Alex Berenson said. "The government was hoping that they could sort of sucker 90% of the population into getting vaccinated. And it isn't happening. Right? There's younger people ..."
And Tapper cut off the video to stop the spewing of misinformation. Ironically, the audience cheered in approval. It was like the granting of a death wish accepted.
Recently I wrote a Facebook post that drew the ire of some, but the support of many.
We should not be surprised that Republican politicians and their corresponding misinformation media networks are unconcerned about the health of their constituents as they make vaccination or the lack thereof an ideological issue. These same characters made sure their constituents did not get the Medicaid Expansion to the Affordable Care Act that their states are already paying for. Instead, they left them uninsured. Left them to die.
It is not enough that the policy of their god-Trump killed 600,000, I guess. Thinning the herd, the gullible is ultimately another tax-cut for their real base. Note the same ones pushing no-vax never confirm whether they got the vaccine or not. You know why? They are getting vaccinated.
Trump went on stage and said he liked his dumb constituents, and to my surprise, they cheered. His constituents are not dumb. They were made ill, temporarily psychologically impaired with well-designed messaging. Unfortunately, it was too effective. In the long run, folks will wake up to the carnage. How many COVID variants will it take to wake them up?
