Hospitals in several states are ramping up security and even providing wearable panic buttons to staff amid a wave of violent attacks sparked by COVID-related misinformation, denialists, and conspiracy theorists.

Welcome to Trumpworld.

I am all for them giving anyone threatening or attacking a health care worker just doing their job a thorough beating before handing them over to the police.

Sounds like MAGAts aren't OK with the GOP's "Let Them Die" healthcare plan.

Everyone at my company, whether patient facing or not, have to complete a de-escalation training course this year because of the increase in assaults we've seen over the past two years.

I am still waiting to hear Dems consider the acceptable death rate is for causes in America before freedoms have to be removed. The number can't be lower than 600k a year since heart disease numbers are around that annually. So any covid deaths up to 600k are acceptable since I don't see Liberals trying to protest, riot, and force people to wear muzzles and all the other things it would take to bring that number down significantly. And, before you try to say heart disease doesn't hurt anyone, it has the same impacts as everything else. They take up ER spots. They increase health insurance costs. They cost families a lot of money in many cases. Etc. etc. It's truly isn't that hard to understand why Liberals aren't breaking any ground in their fight. If they actually made sense, used logic, and learn how to compromise, things could be better.

"Sounds like MAGAts aren't OK with the GOP's "Let Them Die" healthcare plan."

Considering underdeveloped nations have much, much worse healthcare and many, many more people die, your exaggeration means absolutely nothing and serves to illustrate you haven't actually logically thought about the issue. Let Them Die would look even worse than those underdeveloped nations. So why make the stupid exaggeration? Sure, it may not be up to par with where you want it and there is nothing wrong at all for fighting to improve but exaggerating to make a point shows how wholly inadequate you are to actually speak to the topic.

But, again, go ahead and just attack me in your replies. That's typical and means nothing. Trust me, when all of you are grown up you will learn that having kids attack you means almost nothing. There are a lot more things to worry about.

Any COVID-19 deaths of unvaccinated people are unnecessary deaths. You're just going to have to suck it up, buttercup, when the vaccine mandates start to take effect. No freedoms are being removed, except your freedom to be an 4$$h073.

"MAGAts" sounds like an offensive term for Caitlin Jenner. Not that the OP care if they come across as transphobic.

Yes, Caitlyn supports Trumpty Dumpty as well. She could always take off the red hat if she wanted.

You guys sure are easily offended. I can only imagine the freakout when y'all see box of surgical masks or a needle being used for something other than a diabeetus injection.

Yeah, I got what they were aiming for, and that they thought they're being clever. It still looks like 'maga TS'.

#16 This guy can't figure out what a Swastika looks like to Americans, but he can reverse capitalization on MAGAts and decide it's an attack on transsexuals.

Where are you from, since it obviously isn't America?

Do... do they use the Cyrillic alphabet there?

If only she was an Indian-American, like Nikki Haley or Kamala Harris, then you could call her "MAGAtrani" and giggle to your heart's content.

"Make Swastikas Great Again" really thinks he's on to something here.

Hey, what happened to your web site? www.snoofrunt.org cannot be reached. Did you get de-platformed for your hatred and bigotry against Asian and Indigenous cultures?

Well, I do have one question:
What's offensive about calling a Transsexual who supports Trump a MAGA TS?

#26 | Posted by snoofy at 2021-09-30 06:13 PM | Reply

It becomes offensive when you write in a way that conflates the two and implies you're pronouncing it like 'maggots'. I'm sure you know this, and were just asking a rhetorical question, as usual.

Only in the sense that decepticons fly over your head.

Anyone want to explain the joke to censored?

"implies you're pronouncing it like 'maggots'."

And what does a Swastika imply, to Americans?

(I'm sure you know this.)

Conflates what two?

The derogatory word for Trump supporters, and the thing you completely made up and fell victim too?

My goodness. What a little ---- you are.

#6 There are lots of regulations and freedom restrictions on Tabaco and alcohol use, because they cause disease. Smoking is banned most places because it spreads disease to others. Sounds like Covid doesn't it?

Regarding heart disease, what causes it? There is no consensus. Hard to justify bans if you don't know the cause of disease.

Doesn't follow. If I said maggots was offensive because it sounds like bassoons, then you might have point.

Many Americans have an ignorant and prejudiced view of the symbol, because that's all they were taught. You've made it clear you want to champion that ignorance and bigotry and help the racists to continue to misappropriate the symbol which is still used by hundreds of millions of people today, including American immigrants and minorities.
