Sorry I’ve been MIA. I needed to take a break from the news. Because, it’s just too much.
Without Covid-19 jab ‘reinfection may occur every 16 months’ say scientists https://t.co/HS5j3FpVUh

I just got on the Lasso bandwagon a few weeks ago. It’s a good show! Perfect timing actually. After 4 years of having the absolute worst person in the world who took the air out of everything, it’s nice to watch a show about kindness.
Ok. And the term you’re looking for is “death cult”:
Anti-vaccine Facebook groups have a new message for their community members: Don’t go to the emergency room, and get your loved ones out of intensive care units.
Consumed by conspiracy theories claiming that doctors are preventing unvaccinated patients from receiving miracle cures or are even killing them on purpose, some people in anti-vaccine and pro-ivermectin Facebook groups are telling those with Covid-19 to stay away from hospitals and instead try increasingly dangerous at-home treatments, according to posts seen by NBC News over the past few weeks.
The messages represent an escalation in the mistrust of medical professionals in groups that have sprung up in recent months on social media platforms, which have tried to crack down on Covid misinformation. And it’s something that some doctors say they’re seeing manifest in their hospitals as they have filled up because of the most recent delta variant wave.
A quick thread:
?It’s hard to explain just how radicalized ivermectin and antivax Facebook groups have become in the last few weeks.
They’re now telling people who get COVID to avoid the ICU and treat themselves, often by nebulizing hydrogen peroxide.
So, how did we get here?

The Arizona “audit” coming out tomorrow didn’t just confirm Biden won. Biden actually gained votes in their recount, while Trump lost hundreds, according to a draft report. https://t.co/vSflCtllni pic.twitter.com/9JuLNtYbeW

You really have to hand it to Trump. It’s one thing to lose an election. It’s another thing to lose the same election over and over again on almost a weekly basis. I’m sure that he will now admit that he is completely wrong and that he did indeed lose the 2020 election:

I normally don’t get it out of pure laziness, but I figured it would be best to get it this time because if I do get the flu, you know I’m going to assume it’s breakthrough covid.
Also, at this point, just give me all the vaccines you have.
