(Washington Post)   Michigan GOP official Jason Watts blames his maskless GOP colleagues for the fact that he has covid, whines that masks and vaccines "shouldn't be political." Gosh, if only there was a way you could stop belonging to a party that made them such   (washingtonpost.com) divider line

Kick the others out of the Republican Party.

Republicans are bioterrorists.

Acting like bioterrorism is just an alternative political view has lead to mass death.

If you donate to any Republican cause, you're funding team bioterrorism.

Bioterrorists need to be treated like Osama bin Laden.

If you catch covid in the northern hemisphere now then you are either really unlucky or a careless asshole.

...roughly 70 people attended the meeting, few wearing masks, before several party members were diagnosed with covid-19.

Huh. It's really too bad no one could have figured out a way to avoid that happening.

Oh, well. Anyway....

Unlucky to have a job interacting with people? I mean, I guess, but unemployment is at 6%, not 50. playing the odds of human interaction, you would be more likely to get it, than not.

The crazy thing about masks is that the right could have gotten rich off triggering the libs with them if they sold them with a "politically incorrect" slogan. It's not like anyone could do anything about it - they could always say "I'm doing my part to keep others safe", while seeing the "libs get pwnd".

Look, if all y'all are too scared to drive drunk, that's your decision. Don't drive drunk if that suits you. Statistically, there's a very low probability of me actually hurting myself, and it's a free country. You can't force me to stay sober when I drive. That's my personal choice, and the government needs to stay out of it.

But but but... He wore a mask! Two masks! Proof that masks don't work and you're all sheeple!

/or something like that. I'm too tired from not having COVID to care.

Why would anyone go to a gathering?

Why would anyone go to a gathering where people weren't wearing masks?

Why would anyone go to a gathering where people weren't wearing masks IN AN ATTEMPT TO REMAIN A REPUBLICAN?

A key component of republicans is a lack of empathy and to only learn lessons after they have directly impacted you

Remember that OBL was the son of a construction billionaire magnate who was then supplied weapons by the Reagan administration

They could've had various GOP designs floating around: MAGA, the Don't Tread On Me snake, that Spartan stuff they're into, etc.

Too bad their top dog in the Oval Office wasn't some businessman who branded his name all over everything, he would've been all over that; certainly wouldn't have avoided responsibility at every turn. That amazingly successful captain of industry would've made himself some dough while raising the profile of the party and giving the impression that they care because of his genius business acumen.

It's not a problem unless it impacts me!

Shouldn't be political?  You're the one blaming the GOP.

MAGA masks, $30 a mask, could've made the campaign more than their recurring payments ripping off old people and would've saved lives.

Same with the vaccine. Let Trump and his family buy shares in Pfizer and Moderna and THEN go out touting the Trump Vaccines! Again, it could save more lives, reduce spread, and make him money. But he won't do that either.

This is because, as has been said many times, the Orange One actually gets off on hurting people - much more so if they are his supporters.

He sees it as affirmation of his personal power if people knowingly throw themselves into the grinder out of devotion to him.

This perverted high is more important to him even than money or reelection.  Not that he was smart enough to realize that this was what he was pissing away.

FTFA: he said he maintained a silent resistance

"Silence is Consent"
and
"All it takes for evil to win is for good people to do/say nothing"

You weren't resisting anything, you were covering your own arse by hiding.

There are two types of republicans.. those that enabled insurrection, and those that did nothing about it lest they lose their base of crazies that trump brought them.

"Boo hoo the leopards are eating my face now"

HAHAHAHAHHA FARK YOU!

The only vaccine I need is the red/white/blue pulsing through my veins 24/7.

/not serious.
//It won't work on polio or smallpox either.
///You need blue UV light in your veins to make that work.

Ay the very start and through this day the republican party and it's voting members have made this a political stance against common-sense methods to handle a pandemic.

That is the reality.
