Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 10, 2021

The number of new Americans who have received a first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine has been tumbling in recent weeks, as the people who really want a vaccine have been able to get one.

So, IOW, these are people who are not even paying attention. They don't concern themselves with the news or anything relevant to societal issues.

Fnkcing cowards.

The vaxxed will die. The unvaxxed will be hunted.

You guys would not believe some of the stuff I'm seeing on banned sites, and also it's broad spectrum - mostly I see it from the left in the uber-greens and the free range rural folk, but also in the broad population. There's always somebody who balks at having their DNA modified for some reason.

You don't think your DNA is being modified by a steady of diet of HFCS, Roundup, GMO, DHMO, and other chemicals they're shoving into your food?

Yeah, they're not paying attention to politicians and pundits, left or right. No rational person could condemn them for that. But there you go.

Who told you your DNA was being modified?

That person is called a liar. If you got it from a news source, then that news source is called fake news aka propaganda.

However, I'm sure this knowledge won't stop you from trusting those same sources that lied to you before, because being misinformed by russian liars is better than listening to liberals and scientists right?

And the "vaccine hesitant" people won't be reached by anybody. They're idiots who think reading a few mommy blogs and anti-vaxx sites makes them knowledgable on the topic and able to make an informed opinion.

At best, the only thing that could shake them free from their cocoon of stupidity is a loved one dying or being severely effected by a vaccine-preventable disease. And even that's not a given.

This is the probably the most messed up side-effect of the Information Age. People consider themselves experts on anything info they self-select.
Back in my day, all the adults knew they were ignorant AF and stayed in their lane.

Even though I took the shot, I look at those people as using their freedom.

We have forgotten what freedom truly is in this nation and it's the ability to make your own decisions. We are all too often mired in groupthink and we assume everyone else thinks like us and comes to the same decision as us, and are surprised when someone comes to a different conclusion as us and horrified when those same people do something we would not do. So, what do we do? As evidenced by this thread, we insult them, we ridicule them. That, in my opinion, is the biggest threat to our REPUBLIC (not democracy), our way of government, which is the best in the world.

Another person's freedom ends where infecting me begins.

It's the same in reverse.

My freedom ends where infecting other people begins.

Taking the vaccine isn't about giving up freedom. It's caring about your family, friends and co-workers and everybody else that isn't you. It's about preventing needless death and suffering of people you don't even know. It's about doing your small part for the sake of humanity.

Don't give me this freedom b.s.

These freedom loving people of which you speak are selfish, irresponsible and social pariahs. They belong on an island where they can exercise their freedom to infect each other until they all die off.

Tell me another thing BOAZ.

If these "freedom lovers" of which you speak want to be free, why are they ending up in hospitals wasting a doctor's time? Why aren't they at home exercising their precious freedom to die a horrible death ~ by choice!

Why aren't they happy to watch the tick-toc as they struggle to take one more breath, never sure when the next one will be the last one.

You didn't do that. Are you a coward? Or is there a price you're not willing to pay for your "freedom" ~ or the price you're not willing for your family to pay?

I hope it's the latter.

I'll tell you one more thing, BOAZ

I took those two Pfizer shots as fast as my little legs would carry me.

And then a strange thing happened. I didn't lose a single freedom. In fact, I gained one. The freedom to keep on living and breathing.

If somebody is stupid and ignorant they don't get a pass because it's their opinion.

Something being somebody's opinion doesn't mean dick. Doesn't mean it must be respected. Doesn't mean it should be taken seriously. Doesn't mean it should be listened to.

That's where you're off the rails, boaz. You think that any old "thought" that gets sharted out of your brain deserves respect. Sorry, but it doesn't work that way. Not if you're an adult, at least.

Translation:
We have forgotten that freedom means refusing service to blacks, gays, and even women if you so choose.

"Being a selfish oaf has nothing to do with "freedom""

Indeed!

Eberly missed the whole point. It isn't about who does or who doesn't pay the hospital bill.

It's about these "freedom lovers," of whom Boaz excuses as "choice makers," and calls others who take the vaccine "group thinkers," whom he believes are the real cause of the downfall of liberty in America.

When it comes to "group thinkers" maybe Boaz should pluck the log from his own eye before he points his finger at others.

If indeed there are two camps on this subject, I'm happy to be in the camp that choses living, and doing all I can to help others to do the same, over some sort of stupid misconception about losing freedoms because the Moron-in-Chief in the Oval Office is a bloody coward who can't admit he was wrong. And he doesn't care how many thousands have to die to cover his tracks.

That's not going to happen.

His philosophy is that when his team wins, the loser should shut up because his side won and gets to make the rules.

If his team loses, the other side should compromise and let his side make the rules anyway.

I pay my share which is a whole lot more civilized than leaving sick people outside to die in the parking lot ~~ as you seem to think is their just deserts.

You have a few lessons to learn about lack of humanity and pure selfishness.

I hope it comes back to bite you some day. It usually does.

No, I don't. In fact I support universal Heath care for that reason.

I didn't miss the point. I understood it fine.

I acknowledge the flawed rationale of people regarding their freedom.

Twin, perhaps my analogy wasn't very good. I compared someone who doesn't get vaccinated in the name of freedom to someone to someone who doesn't have health insurance in the name of freedom.

But you took that to mean I want sick people to die in parking lots.

I don't.

The US is close to having most libruls vaccinated. Those in hospital now are over 90% unvaccinated.

Now is the time to hold super spreader MAGA rallies in every city. All we need is a indictment of Trump to kick off the protest rallies. Based on his supporters age and co-morbidities, we could see a 5% reduction.
