I’ve been seeing this trend where unvaxxed people who are infected with Covid are blaming vaccinated people for it. Which….. I guess is on brand for the type of mind that would rather take horse deworming paste then get a vaccine.
More unvaccinated Americans blame vaccinated Americans for Delta’s devastating U.S. surge than blame themselves, according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll.
The survey of 1,649 U.S. adults, which was conducted from Aug. 16 to 18, found that just 6 percent of those who remain unvaccinated say they are the ones who deserve “the most blame for the new surge of COVID cases in the U.S.” The share who say vaccinated Americans deserve the most blame is slightly higher (7 percent).
Likewise, when asked “how much” blame each group deserves, just 9 percent of unvaccinated Americans say they themselves deserve a “great deal of blame.” Nearly twice as many (15 percent) say vaccinated Americans deserve a great deal of blame.
Duke University tells all employees they must get a COVID-19 vaccine or be fired … If employees don’t comply, they will be terminated and will not be eligible for rehire with Duke in the future, the announcement said. …https://t.co/FgwZgxCTv7pic.twitter.com/hFZmsxzTur
Good. The thing that the “MAH FREEDUMBS” idiots don’t quite grasp, or even care if they were capable of understanding, is your freedom to choose hits a brick wall when your misinformed choice involves spreading a dangerous deadly virus to everybody you are huffing on.
Average daily Covid hospitalizations in the U.S. surpassed 100,000 patients over the past week, a level not seen since the peak last winter. https://t.co/FBYVLPwHKw
Robert David Steele, a former CIA officer who dabbled in conspiracy theories and was once a major QAnon promoter, sadly passed away aged 69 today. Tragically, up until the last minute he did not believe he had Covid or that getting vaccinated could have prevented his death. pic.twitter.com/QiR5vDvjJe
Twenty-nine law enforcement officers in Florida have died of COVID-19.
“When Mike was in the hospital, a lot of officers started getting vaccinated,” shared Holloway. “I am telling the officers that are out there listening, deputies, do this, please. If you don’t want to do it for yourself, do it for your family, your coworkers. You need to get vaccinated.”
Earlier this week, Sarasota deputies said nearly 100 employees were out with COVID cases.
St. Petersburg police say 19 staff are currently out, but no one is currently hospitalized.
Also from the article:
“Mike could probably be here today if he was vaccinated,” said Holloway. “Wife and I talked about that. But he didn’t. All politics aside, get vaccinated. The wife now has to go through this. The police department has to go through this.”
Guys, I know you’re getting sick of me doing a variant of “I don’t get it”, but there’s a vaccine available to anybody who wants it, for free, with a PROVEN track record of doing an amazing job of keeping people out of the hospital and of dying, and people are taking livestock deworming medicine as an alternative. I just don’t get it.
Sen. Ron Johnson has made multiple podcast and radio appearances this week in which he pushes Ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 while fear mongering about vaccinations. And he’s continued to do so, even after clear warnings that his message is dangerous.
Johnson, who has regularly argued for the use of unproven drugs such as Hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin as treatments for COVID-19, appeared on the shows of Wisconsin right wing radio host Vicki McKenna and Washington Times opinion editor Cheryl Chumley to criticize the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s decision to fully authorize Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine and advocate for people to take Ivermectin to treat the disease.
Ivermectin is commonly used to deworm livestock, and although it is approved for use in humans to treat parasitic infection, has not been shown to be effective at preventing COVID-19 infection or treating patients with the disease.
This week, following a prominent push by figures such as Johnson on right wing media outlets such as Fox News, the FDA was forced to put out a warning against the use of Ivermectin.
August 2020, the Texas Poison Control Network got 2 calls for ivermectin. This August, they’ve had 55 so far.
Washington Co. is treating inmates with Ivermectin, in direct contradiction with FDA guidelines. And the doc providing this care – who doesn’t believe in the efficacy of masks – is asking for a 10% increase in funding for next year. https://t.co/EHvSFwXKas
