Honestly, I thought things would be much better now.
What with vaccines becoming common place and anyone can get one here in the United States, I really would have thought people would be flocking to get vaccinated for COVID 19 and surely the rates of the disease would be dropping by now…
So it turns out that far too many people remain deniers of the virus. I suspect many of these people are the same ones who lose their shit at the idea of wearing -gasp!- a mask… as if that’s some kind of major infringement on their personal liberty.
Give me a fucking break.
Sorry if I’m sounding sour, but I’m getting really sick of this.
You don’t want to deal with Coronavirus anymore? Guess what, there’s a real easy solution:
If you’re one of the brainwashed fools who think vaccines are some kind of liberal plot and that masks don’t really do anything let me offer two bits of advice.
First: Get your head out of your ass (ie, all those idiotic Right Wing bullshit articles out there).
Second, perhaps you should read this article about Dick Farrel, a Right Wing radio host who, like too many of these Right Wing types, had nothing but disdain for Dr. Fauci and felt vaccines and masks were stupid.
You can probably guess what happens next. The following article, presented on theguardian.com, tells us about how…
Read the article if you want to, but the bottom line is as tragic as it is expected.
The 65 year old Dick Farrel, who had a plethora of wonderfully wrongheaded -and just plain wrong- opinions about COVID, vaccines, and Dr. Fauci, contracted the virus and, once in the hospital, realized his mistake…
…and it was too late.
From the article
(Dick Farrel) reportedly changed his opinion about vaccines after falling ill and later being admitted to hospital before passing away on 4 August aged 65. “He texted me and told me to ‘Get it!’ He told me this virus is no joke and he said, “I wish I had gotten [the vaccine]!”
Get vaccinated, people.
