Let me tell you abut the modern Right-wing in Texas and Trumpism in particular. Especially in regards to COVID.
All of us dip into paranoia at times, I and Thou.
Trumpites and most Republicans, however, float on a sea of paranoia. They don't reference facts, or immediate reality. If one paranoid meme is disproven they switch seamlessly into another. They weren't disturbed that Jade Helm didn't led to the promised Obama invasion of Texas; they simply switched over to another paranoid theme.
NO effort was ever launched to discover those tunnels under abandoned Walmarts, even though those Walmarts all still remain, waiting I'm sure for a President Biden to make use of them again.
You (Trumpites) can only live lives this detached from reality to the extent that a majority of adults around you remains adaptive and sane and therefore able to protect and care for you.
Otherwise very bad things happen. Here's looking at you, Mississippi Legislature.
