I wondered briefly whether they were dressed as a fake healthcare worker. Probably getting ready for Halloween.

I cannot think of an image that will be more iconic of these times. Science versus stupidity encapsulated. Though the photog from the Columbus Dispatch of the zombie protesters comes in close second.

It's really sad that people with personal interests are politicizing this situation. If they didn't stubbornly cling to their preconceptions, they would surely step back and allow policy decisions to be made by the businesses and politicians who serve and are accountable to the American people.

Ya..You really don't want to insult people that would have the opportunity to choose between giving
you a not painful medical procedure, and  a painful one...

I guess the difference is, that most people have the ethical and personal integrity to do the right thing,
no matter the situation...And there are those that do not..

Sad thing is the only thing on that list that is closed in AZ is the bars... kinda.

If the bar also has a food licence (many do) they are selling to go drinks in soda cups.   I have never seen more open container violations in my life, and nothing bad is happening.   Hopefully this will lead to the disposal of a bunch of stupid laws left over from prohibition days.

I think for some it's just about emulating Trump's vibe - if whatever happening is hurting his image, they're fittin to work against it. Which is a shame because I miss intellectual and disciplined conservatives who are running on something besides toxic anger.

Well, it would be crazy to arrest anyone for anything less than serious crimes right now - what are you going to do, jam a bunch of people into a jail?
That's not going to help, at all.

Cubs300: otiosa: Ok so I read the article, and why is it dusty in here? These nurses and health care professionals are giving everything up, including their families, to take care of people that are dying in front of them, and a55hats like these protesters and politicians continue to spit in their face. I want to believe in the America that the nurse represents. That's TRUE America.

I counter that the TRUE America is the protestors.  They are the worst of us.  You know the saying that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link?  These protestors are our weakest link.  We are only as strong as them.  They are showing us what The United States truly is.


American? I think the word you are looking for is Asshole. The real Americans are stoic, kind and humane. Like the ones I have met many times in the UK. The ones who never live outside their own minds or counties, they are the ones you have problems with.

It's unfortunate that the scumbag crowd has gone from ignoring nurses to actively turning against them as a result of Karen leaning out of truck to scream at a nurse during that protest, looking like an asshole over the internet as a direct result of her own actions.

Now I'm seeing people say that nurses only care about social media clout.

lemurtx: After hearing about Ward's tweet, Leander said if given the opportunity she would walk her through the ICU at her hospital to the bedside of some of her coronavirus patients to see firsthand the impacts of the virus.
"I wish she could be in my shoes for a day, I'd have her put on a pair of scrubs and walk with me," Leander said.

former Arizona state Sen. Dr. Kelli Ward

Presuming she's not a medical doctor? The head of the hospital should invite her to tour their facility. Where there are no fake healthcare workers and there are real patients.

Hell, I'd say give the protesters tours of the hospitals. Let them walk through and see the real patients and the real healthcare workers, then they can walk out, and proclaim it's all a hoax that they saw firsthand. Problem is, they won't be quarantined and not only will they and their loved ones get sick because of their stupidity, they'll spread it to others in the community.


And make these idiots remove bodies to the morgue, just to drive the point home.

EVEN IF these 'spontaneously' appearing ppl at protests against govt overreach (sporting the same outfits, postures, & facial expressions) ARE involved in healthcare - when they appeared at rallies, they were actors playing parts #Propaganda #FakeOutrage," Ward tweeted.

This sounds like and exact description of the protestors, not the healthcare workers. Projection again.

Came here to say this. Let 'em in, gown and PPE them and show them the "hoax."

Maybe they'll believe it when the tour doesn't end at the gift shop, but the makeshift morgue.

That flag hat motherfarker hasn't held a job in a decade at least. He just wants other people to die for his stock portfolio.


The one in the ball cap with an American flag has his thoughts on full display via his body language. He's seriously considering cracking that petite female in the face with that flag. He's a real bad-ass; true courage on display. I hope those prison tats take him down.

*reads* Yep. Hero confirmed.

Now, I'm not thrilled that people on my side are just as willing to yell "fake person" as these deluded jackasses when they don't like what someone is saying.

These guys demanding we open up again come from the American underclass, and it is real. The are sick (or fat and unattractive, if that makes you feel better about yourself), ignorant, desperate, scared, and so insulated from reality that they don't know how to help themselves. They have been cultivated this way for the sake of political power by half of our two party system. And the other half can't work out whether to help them or pander to them. Pandering is way easier.

Our real American hero nurse makes a point of saying she'd help them, despite all the screaming and threats, because that's her job. As a nurse she's probably used to hurt people fighting her every step of the way. She is not a politician. For a politician, helping these people has a political cost, because they don't understand what real help looks like and they're terrified of it and they might vote for something else.

I don't know if they're ever going to wake up. Some of them do. Access to education and social services that allows them to stop flailing and lashing out would get more of them on our side and stop the others from being as much of a drain, but I don't know if we'll ever get all of them. Maybe their kids, or their kids' kids, because this has been going on a long time and a lot of these damaging systems are entrenched. But if we don't help them, we're gonna stay right where we are, for generation after generation.

For those of you paying attention, where we are is a bunch of sick people screaming at healthcare and government workers that they want to go back to work even if it kills them and the rest of us, because they don't know of any other way to survive. And they are waving American flags, because that's what they think this country stands for.
