Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, March 30, 2020

Right-wing conspiracy theorists are filming outside their local hospitals and claiming the quiet scenes resulting from visitor restrictions are proof that media have exaggerated the severity of COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic in America. ... Many hospitals have restricted visitors in an attempt to contain the spread of COVID-19; it's likely a major contributor to the images of empty parking lots and roadways outside hospitals. The "war zones" that have been described in media are inside hospitals, where federal laws restrict filming patients without their consent.

Reichwingers are scum, pure and simple scum. They will do anything to save the reputation of their cult leader. If these asshats came down with COVID-45, the medical community, the medics, the nurses, the doctors, our front line "troops" in this "war" who are bravely working to heal patients in spite of a lack of PPE, getting sick and some dying from COVID-45, would still treat them no matter what giant pieces of refuse they are. That's the difference between the Reich and the rest of us on Earth I, we believe in science, in goodness and in caring for our fellow man. On Earth II they believe in a cult leader who is all-powerful and shall NOT be contradicted for fear of the wrath of the Reichwing hit squad! Disgusting, despicable, obscene!

Did you see the clip of Alex Jones today? The king of the crackpots... he says the virus is real, but it was manufactured by the globalists to attack your nads in order to depopulate the earth.

I am not making this up.

As usual, within the chaff there is something resembling a tiny kernel of grain.
The policy of letting it burn through American was manufactured by the Debt King to depopulate this small portion of the earth.
It's part and parcel of the over-arching agenda called:

Hurting The People Who Need To Be Hurt.
This time, it's the sick, the old, the weak, the genetically inferior.
We're going come out of this stronger than ever before!

And Trump himself wants to know why a New York hospital is going from using 20,000 masks a week to 300,000. What's really going on, he wants to know.

This crockpot conspiracy crap is every bit as dangerous as the virus itself.

I'm not sure as I don't listen to his Trump lovin' Nazi ass anymore.

I used to troll the eff out of him when he used to take calls over a decade ago.
He blocked my numbers and email. He is one of those types that doesn't like being called out on his propaganda and BS. He is the ultimate fake libertarian POS.

He is my fictional father, hence the name.

Sorry misread an above post.
Yes the dbag that is Dori is still on the air, he's at home recovering from knee replacement surgery because he's an obese POS. He should have gotten a lobotomy instead.

He looks so pathetic with that ghost white hair barely able to stretch across his scalp, the look of a man in decline trapped by his own bad decisions.The way he explodes at reporters that quote him while asking questions is really disturbing.The man will not accept responsibility for any shortcomings at all.He was acting as if he should be thanked for saving 2 million lives today .He stated today the success any state has is in this war is due to him but deaths the deaths are due to thieving and corruption on the local level that the lying fake media failed to prevent.

Canada and the USA both have a 82-18 percent urban rural population ratio.The USA has 9 times the total population of Canada.Ignoring American exceptionalism,I think it would be a fair metric to Judge Trumps response.Is 100 000 Americans dead a good job if Canada only has 5k dead when its over.

Dori was a "West Coast Liberal" who's not actually liberal at all, he just donates to charity once in a while. His job is to reassure white people that it's okay to be white and it's better to feel bad about injustice than stop it.

Hes' the kind of guy who praises Trump for sending in the Comfort after praising Trump for firing the pandemic response team, with no sense of irony whatsoever.

(1). It's not really the point if hospitals are empty or much less full than one would expect. It is that THEY WILL BE OVERCROWDED! Or there is a substantial likelihood it COULD happen.

(2). My neighbor is a nurse of many years. They told her not to come into work 3 days ago, they aren't even opening one entire floor (it's a smaller hospital).

With all the elective procedures being delayed, there's a lot fewer people.

The conspiracy theorists ARE ON TO something.
But point #1 really does cover it in my mind.

(3). NBC news said the economy was in "free fall" despite the Dow gaining 900 points in one day (after big drops to be sure). The mainstream news (like many of us) are overly dramatic, and they have been innumerable times over innumerable things. Especially under President Trump.

This MAY BE HORRIBLE, but it's possible it may just be mediocre bad.

I'm happy nearly everyone I see is taking it seriously.

But I don't think we can dismiss the conspiracy theories completely. And I hate those conspiracy theories.

It's amazing how much nonsense people like Todd Starnes and Bill Mitchell will spread.

Filming outside a hospital to prove anything about what's going on inside is idiotic. Hospitals have banned visitors and stopped scheduling elective procedures. A New York City hospital could be overwhelmed with coronavirus patients and there might be little activity outside.

It's the Thanos Theory. Whomever survives gets the spoils.

After the black plague wealth increased for those who survived. Unemployment went down. Workers were in high demand. Property was cheap. Some houses left with no known heirs.

The conspiracy theorists aren't on to anything and you've missed the point. I work for a regional hospital network and we have instructed all staff who do not have the training required to work effectively in this type of scenario to stay home to protect themselves and others and to reserve the available supplies for those who can. I'm an obvious example. I work in IT. I have no business being at one of the facilities currently. Same goes for a lot of medical staff who do not have the training and certifications needed in such a situation. I have a good friend, an oncologist, he's on telemed duty. He's been instructed to only enter a facility if it is absolutely necessary.

(3). NBC news said the economy was in "free fall" despite the Dow gaining 900 points
The Dow is not the economy. The US Government just enacted the largest economic stimulus bill in the history of the country and it's not because the economy is doing great. We have entered what will likely prove to be the most sudden and severe economic recession in history. Hopefully it will be relatively brief. We had 3+ million Americans lose their jobs two weeks ago, something like 4 or 5 times as many as the previous single week record. Probably had even more than that last week. The Federal Reserve is projecting that as many as 40+ million people may be unemployed in Q2. Go tell those people that things are under control.

But I don't think we can dismiss the conspiracy theories completely.

We can absolutely dismiss them. We can base our opinions on facts and rational thinking. We can easily ignore those who do otherwise.

I've been assuming that it's a more genuine change for the better. He's not the fresh out of uni (first time I ever heard somebody call college "uni" was when he used it) noob that he was when he joined us six years ago. And joining the military (?) surrounds him with the type of people who won't let you get away with being the young pup who believes he knows better than everybody about everything.

That's a poorly-developed conspiracy theory. You need to flesh it out a bit and explain how they intend to do this. Further, that's not even a conspiracy theory, it's a prediction. Conspiracy theories arise out of something that has already happened.

So I'm predicting Donald Trump and his family will attempt to steal billions of dollars because of 200,000 dead people.

OK, fine.

Just like Trump and his family have stolen millions of dollars from 230 million living people.

See how that works? I even have a name for it: a pattern.
