They'll believe him.  They just won't believe the scientists.

"It's patriotic to get the coronavirus...." Stupid hick redneck BroCountry....

Wait, ".....to get the coronavirus vaccine..." And he's actually one of the good 90s Country singers.

Okay, he's good. Walkback in 12 hours...

I love the comments and look forward to getting to 1,000,000 deaths.  I'm vaccinated and am rooting for the virus to teach a very serious lesson to those that refuse to get vaccinated.

If you believe Covid is a Chinese biological weapon and you don't get vaccinated to protect the country, then you definitely are not a patriot.

You know, before this pandemic happened I would've criticized you for this.

After all that's happened, in good conscience, I can't.  Way too many dumbfarks in this country have either died, their lives severely compromised or simply still walk around believing that the virus is not as bad as scientists/experts make it out to be.

These assclowns don't deserve a shred of mercy/compassion from me.  I reserve it for people that died who couldn't avoid getting the virus, for those who's lives have been severely compromised because of same.

That is probably true, but as a former musician I have a lot of friends who are really happy to see clubs and event centers making reopening plans. Kinda hard for me to get worked up about that.

Patriotism is the exact opposite of patriotism to most of these yokels; harming fellow Americans for internal political reasons is totally fine in their book. Same as their version of Christianity, where Republican Jesus wants you to turn away immigrants and literally shoot those that trespass rather than forgive them.

Nah, this is a good Machiavellian tact to take.  You want the yokels to get vaccinated, you can't say "listen to smart and educated people like Fauci", 'cause it'll backfire.  Create resistance in your target audience.  You have to sound like Rush Limbaugh and Ted Cruz if you want to win over these morons.  Country singers like Paisley are perfect to play this role.

I was thinking, the best way to make sure a lot of vaccine holdouts get vaccinated is to let them all know we don't care if they get vaccinated. In fact, we kind of hope they don't. The way I see it it's win-win, people don't get vaccinated, fark around and find out. Nothing of value is lost. Or they do and we get back to normal in more of a hurry

Braid grew up in a white bread family and he got an ASCAP scholarship out of high school, it paid for his college white he interned at EMI, and he got a record deal when he graduated and is currently worth 100 million.

But yeah Hollywood elite...

"It is an interesting thing when you look at what happens and how this became what it is. I think back to the original anti-vaccine movement, which sort of started, I think, I could be wrong, but I see it as almost starting with the Hollywood elite that didn't want their kids vaccinated because of a bunked report," he explained. "I think that there is a level of reaching these folks that you have to say look, the way to be the most productive citizen, the way to be the person that helps, is to get this. The patriotic thing is when you raise your arm and say 'America, get a shot in it. That is the way that you are the most patriotic.'"

Jenny Mccarthy and Kristy Swanson are not the Hollywood elite.

And he was farking pandering to Trump humpers, which is pretty terrible.

So he's a flaming Lib now?  At least that's what Country Music Murica will say. They punish any of their stars even SEEMING to agree with the boogeyman Liburlz.  And he doesn't have the out/excuse of being an attractive female crossover-friendly star, which lets a few like Kasey Musgraves or Maren Morris get away with non-conformity.

Well, no one ever paid anything attention to batshiat Crazy Cruz.  Jenny stirred up some Orange country mothers, but Paisley thinks that Trump humpers actually listened to those people anyway?  And plus that was a decade ago.

You have large swathes of the population refusing the vaccination and in comparison to the minuscule amount of mommies refusing to vax their crotchfruit.

Well, the idea that the "Hollywood Elite" refers to any consistent political program is silly; the only thing they agree about is they want to make a lot of money.

Plus it wasn't but Trump who politicized the disease. So I think Mr Country Singer is trying to have it both ways. But at least he is telling people to get vaccinated; that will save lives.

He's not 100% wrong. There were a lot of high profile celebrity anti-vaxxers like Jenny McCarthy. It's gotten bigger since then but people like her and her ex-husband Jim Carrey deserve a lot of blame for popularizing it. Not that this lets Trump and Co off the hook, but they capitalized on anti-vaxx. They didn't create it.
