This pandemic has shone a spotlight on the those morons in the Deep South that never believe science.
I read a couple of these idiots and their views about the virus and the wearing of masks…..
First in Alabama an elected official had this to say…..(Maybe Kim, https://cadburypom.wordpress.com/ can give us the rest of them story)……..
Alabama Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh suggested that he wanted more people to get coronavirus — because he thinks America would develop “herd immunity” and reduce the spread enough to protect more vulnerable populations.
“I’m not as concerned so much as the number of cases. In fact, quite honestly, I want to see more people, because we start reaching an immunity the more people have it and get through it,” said Marsh. “I don’t want any deaths, as few as possible, say, I get it, but those people who are susceptible to the disease, especially more serious pre-existing conditions, elderly population, those folks, we need to, you know, do all we can to protect them. But I’m not concerned, I want to make sure that everybody can receive care.”
Then a few hundred miles West to Louisiana…..
A Republican lawmaker in Louisiana has launched a strange new kind of attack ad in which he fights a piece of paper and a mask.
In a video released on Facebook, state Rep. Danny McCormick crumples a piece of paper with a mask mandate on it and hits it with a stick. Then, he battles a mask with a blowtorch and a chainsaw to show his opposition to mandates requiring face coverings to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
“Masks aren’t bad,” McCormick said as he attacked the masks. “Mandates are.”
He also compared those who support mask mandates to Nazis.
These are people of authority, I use that term loosely, and as such should not go on with the charade that they care about the people they represent.
The more they babble the more they prove the old saying….”Can’t fix stupid”.
Be Well…..Be Safe…..
