What is it? Something like 1,500 Trumpites dying a day per COVID?

I've noticed that living Trumpites never mourn the dead ones. They will castigate the rest of us for making a deal out of those deaths, but they never say that they are sorry for them.

The Right sees death differently than other people.

With apologies to Mason Williams.

If they die it's just because their faith in Trump wasn't strong enough. /s

Where are the faith healers? They should be swarming all over the ICUs laying on hands and casting out Covid demons.

I knew one had died and the other was in the hospital, guess they're both gone now.

This is the resource I discovered via another blog, called sorryantivaxxer - it lists the stories of anti vaxxers who have died (some who have recovered and "repented") like the Alabama couple here.

Another anti-vaxxer-dies-of-covid thread.

How original. I never could have seen this coming.

No, it's not like the flu:

Unvaxxed Teen Councilman Who Attacked Mask Mandates Now Battling Terrible' COVID Pneumonia
SHALLOW IN BREATHING'

Hunter Pepper, a 19-year-old council member who vowed to "fight to the end" against a mask mandate in Decatur, Alabama, revealed he's been hospitalized with shallow breathing.

On Wednesday, Pepper"who's repeatedly slammed mask mandates and refused to get vaccinated" said that he took two rapid tests and a PCR test for the coronavirus after he started to feel sick on Monday.

I've been hoping that some anti-vaxxers might have a change of heart if they see how damaging and deadly covid can be when it hits closer to home and not just in liberal cities and states.

#14 - how many anti-vaxers will be reading this post? Three? Four maybe? And do you think if they haven't gotten vaccinated your thread will somehow magially convince them to get vaccinated?

No offense, but it doesn't sound very realistic.

Well, Hunter, we have some good news....

#15 Not too many anti-vaxxers will likely read the thread, but maybe some folks who aren't anti-vaxxers themselves but who nevertheless have been defending them might and have a change of heart. Instead of defending them, maybe those folks will start to tell them to get vaxxed. Friends don't let friends drink and drive. Neither should they let friends believe vaccination disinformation. Tell them the truth and maybe save a life.

#17 - looking back at my post, I was too harsh on you, Gal_tuesday. You are trying to help, and unlike so many progressives here, you don't wish death on people.

Please accept my apologies.

I wish I knew the answer on how to convince more people to get the jab. I have a sister and brother-in-law as well as 3 nieces (and their spouses) who haven't been vaccinated. Recently one of those nieces, who is a nurse, got vaccinated after being "promoted" to the covid ward at the hospital where she work. That coupled with watching a number of people at her church get covid, some of whom died, seemed to have done the trick. That's what I meant by "seeing how damaging and deadly covid can be when it hits closer to home."

They don't look old.

They don't look like the old, frail, people dying in nursing homes.

"Tell them the truth and maybe save a life."

Sen. Mitt Romney today at University of Utah: "The vaccinations have been politicized, which strikes me as moronic. This is not a political issue... A lot of people haven't gotten vaccinated because they think their team doesn't want you to get vaccinated."

This is like a pedestrian stepping out in front of a speeding car because he has the right of way.

"A lot of people haven't gotten vaccinated because they think their team doesn't want you to get vaccinated."

I think Ol' Mitt is a little off there.

A lot of people (Trumpers) haven't gotten vaccinated because it hurts their feelings too much to acknowledge they are wrong and liberals are right.

#24 Maybe it doesn't so much hurt their feelings as blow their worldview regarding stupid, weak, evil liberals and their superiority to them.

Or maybe the GOP is a Death Cult.

"Or maybe the GOP is a Death Cult."

Or ~ (stop and give it a thought) ~ maybe just a useful tool for the moment.

When Trump get's finished burning the whole house down he won't need any party at all. NO GOP, no Democrat, no Independents, no nothing.

It'll be just him and his oligarch friends.

Exactly like what his idol, Vladimir Putin, has.

After all, hasn't that been his goal all along? Unlimited power and wealth? No guardrail?

Maybe even a castle (like Vladimir Putin) that would make Mar-a-Lago look like a dirty bird cage.

No.
Trump's goal is to be loved, and adored, by as many people as he can.
That is why Trump wanted and still wants to be President: To know what it feels like to be truly loved.

And what deeper love can there be, than when you are willing to give your life for the one you love?

The GOP is a Death Cult.

I have a less convoluted suggestion.

Maybe he's on a power trip and just likes killing people. You know, like a serial killer.
