I keep hearing that republicans are targeting democrats for their fuckups regarding their response to the President and to the pandemic outbreak.
They keep repeating — as if it will stick at some point if they do — that Biden and other democrats called xenophobic for his swift closing of the borders. We know from heavily documented records of the period that Trump’s closures were only partial and at least 40,000 Chinese travelers were able to enter and spread the virus like wildfire.
In a pandemic, that’s horrible.
On January 27, 2020, Joe Biden published an opinion piece which the word “xenophobic” nor “racist” is included.
A tweet in question came on March 18, when Joe Biden replied to a Trump tweet saying: “Stop the xenophobic fear-mongering. Be honest. Take responsibility. Do your job.”
Donald Trump was bragging that his response was so beautiful that it was going to save many lives. Here we are 190,000 lives ended.
He takes no responsibility. The governors are to blame. He is shame free. It was Obama’s fault
It’s a challenge not to see the glaring racism in Trump’s tweet that he’s used incessantly to divide and disrupt. This virus doesn’t care where it originated. Calling it a “china virus” is demeaning and racist. Trump’s comportment is not leader-like. It’s clearly a narcissistic fear-mongering that psychologically is the most un-leaderly possible behavior that is imaginable.
Casting shame where none is needed is the absence of doing the job of the most powerful man in the world. And Trump failed again and again. Or rather, he succeeds at fucking everything he touches and burning it to the ground.
From the Ebola outbreak in 2014, there were two cases in America, both nurses. Both recovered. From the H1NI, the results were worse: From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.
But apples to oranges, a year of Swine Flu gave us 12,469 deaths. Trump stands on a growing pile of 190,000 corpses, and all his fawning supporters can do is repeat that well, if you take out all the people who died without underlying health conditions, it would only make up 6% of that number.
Well, ladi freakin dah.
I bet 6% of those who died of swine flu only had swine flu, too. And the rest of them deserved it because they were going to die anyway?
The callous, lack of empathy and understanding from people who say shit like 6% y’all! Get this economy back up and runnin’!
It just puts them on the pedestal of grossly inhumane and apathetic. You know, all Christ like and stuff.
I will forever be confounded by the emptiness of soulful compassion exhibited by the “get this country back wide open! Kill ’em all. We’ll get through this.
Meanwhile, I haven’t been the same since I might have had it in May. My health sucks ass. And I’m worried that if I get it again, it’ll put me in the hospital. If I go before my parents, I hate to say it, but it would be a big fuck you to see them have to say goodbye to me because they couldn’t get their heads around country over party.
I mask because I care about people.
I mask because I’m American, through and through.
I mask because I love people.
I mask because it’s not that hard and if it saves a life, I feel like a hero.
I mask because I don’t want to be confused for a supporter of death squad 2020.
