Hello, reality!
 
2021-04-20 10:12:26 AM  
Is Mike Rowe then going to tell us that you can defeat COVID through hard work and not taking handouts?

He should've let Monty get the virus on this trip!

/Get better man... If you can beat alcohol and tobacco you can beat this.

Get well soon Keith.  Hope you didn't infect Mouse!

It's simple. If we just gave everybody the vaccine, there would be no incentive to earn one. You think some kid flipping burgers deserves one? That a stepping stone job. Work your way into a career and we'll talk.

Covid is real? What does that even mean? #day8? The "real" world is a year into this shiat. I guess it's only real now because it's happened to him.

Fark him.

I'm glad he made that bedside PSA. Wish he didn't need to.
 
2021-04-20 10:43:41 AM  
Wait: COVID is real?!

Oh great: nooooooow you tell me!!

*coughcoughcough*

Sorry he got Covid but I am glad he made the PSA.  Now, waiting for the responses from fans of the show.

And ignoring some safety regulation because you have common sense.

In a sense, yes, fark him.  Unless he was careful and still got it anyway.  Maybe he is saying it is real to drive home that fact to people he knows who were not careful.

I accept his come to Jesus moment, as it could help others.

When someone says "Covid is real", they're telling you that they didn't take it seriously.  I'm glad he's telling his fans, many of whom likely consider themselves too tough to die, that it's a real thing, but a smart person doesn't have to touch the hot stove.

I know a lot of people who were very careful and got it anyway. One of them died.

He and Wild Bill we're my least favorite captains, but I hope he recovers soon. I lost my taste for the show after Phil died. I know the producers/editors create a lot of the drama we end up seeing, but Deadliest Catch was one of the most real reality shows and that is why I enjoyed it. You can't really fake crab fishing in that hellish part of the ocean.

He's frankly a great person to make a PSA.

/still think if Tom Hanks had died, the US rate rate would have been halved
//should have sacrificed yourself, Tom

I don't know that he was ever a COVID denier (anyone follow him politically?) but if some of the people who follow his show are, and he has a reputation for not being a liberal, then maybe they might listen when he says that COVID is real even though they ignored the medical professionals.

He fished around and found out.

No, he'll just say it's all a liberal hoax.

And then an article will come out attacking him for calling it a hoax.

And then he'll attack the article and claim he never said that.

And then he'll say it's a hoax again.

/It's the Mike Rowe way!
//Also, all of this already happened.  It's not even a hypothetial.

Ya know... if he stuck with his "hard work" ethic and didn't politicize it.... that may be fine.

I don't get why he feels he HAS to jump from "hard work" to "derphardworkderpderpderp"

He's been leaning into that "elitists looking down on Real Americans doing Real Work" thing that has found a receptive audience in the modern resentment-based Republican Party messaging.

I was gonna say this is what Republicans say who didn't believe in it and called it a hoax for a year, but his Twitter page is full of non-MAGA posts like this:

He went to testify at the capitol during the shut down.  I am not sure what his politics are, but I am sure the loss of revenue hit hard.

how many Covid deniers have you heard of that made the jump to reality without either themselves or a close relative almost dying from it?

if he was a denier before, then he can say whatever he wants now, but the damage is done.
