It's not even that. It's just that if'n Democrats is a fer it, they's ag'in it. Or rather, the idea to downplay the pandemic was made by the last Administration, and it was immediately called as a bad idea by the Democrats, who are ALWAYS wrong. Masks, anything remotely having to do with science, it was rejected in order to reinforce the position that "EVERYTHING IS FINE! THIS IS FINE! 600,000+ dead is just the price of doing business!" Then the vaccine rolled out, but it rolled out too late for Donnie to take credit for, so THAT had to be opposed, even though the vaccine itself was approved during the Trump Administration, and had he gotten in a second term, it would be seen as a patriotic duty to get that sweet stuff.

It's not so much a death cult, as knee jerk opposition. The Democrats just made the choice to go with a fact based policy, supported by science, and thus the other side had no choice but to either bury their heads in the sand or absolutely reject anything looking like science or good sense.

Right now, the climate is if the current Administration says anything, the GOP and their followers have to oppose it. No matter what. If the Biden Administration came out against soaking your roof in kerosene during this dry fire season, you'd hear Fox News and TEA Party/Qidiots rail on how dare the government tell you how to care for your home, and how kerosene actually fireproofs homes by inuring the wood against flames and appeasing the kami of fire. Warn people against salmonella, and you'd see Hannitty rolling up raw chicken maki. I can only imagine that the RNC came down HARD on Congress and anyone connected with the right wing news machine to NOT piss off the dairy industry by condemning ice cream, and I imagine that is a constant battle at this point, along with the beer industry just sitting in the wings with a rolled up newspaper to swat House Reps noses.

Gubmint agents coming door to door. This is an outrageous intrusion on privacy and the american way of life.

Just like with Barack Obama and Bill Clinton and back as far as you'd like to go: if Joe Biden went on TV today and said "Here's the deal. The only way to get America back on track is to *NOT* hammer red-hot roofing nails up your urethra. I cannot stress this enough. Keep those nails out of your pee holes." the parking lots of Home Depots everywhere would be replete with screams.

fark Andrew Wakefield.  This anti- vaxx shiat was ALWAYS around, but really started in earnest when he published that "study" about vaccines and Autism.  He's the guy who gave the anti-vaxx crowd their ammunition and that has gotten us to the point where people are debating being vaccinated in a pandemic. Wherever you are today, buddy, go fark yourself with a chainsaw.
 
2021-07-10 11:55:38 AM  
I wouldn't be too sure of all that.

I think there's a legitimate danger for those undertaking a door-to-door campaign. Like some violent anti-vaxxer explaining, "let me tell you what I think of your campaign with Mr. Shotgun." And the areas that they're going to concentrate in have the highest concentration of those guys.

Someone needs to find a bold young journalist with actual balls and do a Mike Wallace style interview with one of these tools.

Not the leaping from the bushes kind, but the kind where he'd get them in a locked room and ask them basically "what the fark is wrong with you? Do you really believe all this swill? Why are you telling you constituents bad information?"

It will never happen, but it would be beautiful to watch.

And yet those volunteers will still go around and knock on doors advise people of why and where and when they can get a shot. They are walking up to people's doors knocking on them knowing that there might be a violent response to their knocking on the door. That takes some gonads. And that's also a condemnation on the farking stupidity of the complete and utter Bullshiat 'Exceptionalism' propaganda that the majority of those dipshiats think their country has that no one else has.

They're proud to be a 'merican coz at least they know they're free.  Unlike almost the rest of them furriners, commies and socialists.

It's not just the Redcaps (interesting faerie folklore parallel).   I'm down here in the Caribbean.  Locals have rumors among them that the vaccines are to sterilize them to stop them from producing children.    Russia's disinfo campaign is even affecting them.  It's global, it's gotten a life of its' own.   

I fully expect that the virus will keep burning till it hits the right combination to overcome our vaccines and sweep the globe.    Have fun.

This is my thoughts as well. I think door to door is a very bad idea. Let's face it if people want a vaccine they can get it. There are other ways to spread the word. I just don't see how there won't be any very bad interactions with this. The farking people are crazy.

bloobeary: If the republicans are hell-bent on killing themselves, I wish they'd just get on with it so we can start building a better world without them constantly getting in the way and ruining things.


It's a Bell curve issue.  The problem is the US has managed to segregate the low end of the Bell curve and let it fester to the point it isn't just self-sustaining, it grows.

You kill every Republican in the US, you're only buying time before they're replaced by a new bottom-third of the population.  You have to build a better world in spite of them, not without them.  I think the biggest part of that is doing something about propaganda, wealth concentration, and education.  If you can get those three handled, the rest should work itself out over time.

It's necessary for urban centers.  Take Chicago as an example.  The areas with the lowest vaccination rates correlate with minority and impoverished communities, and you see multiple zip codes where first dose rates are lower than 40%.  You need people in those communities going door to door, be it because of access issues or to help people overcome their own hesitancy.

Frankly, if this Administration wants to see vaccination rates go back up, they need to remove the EUA from Pfizer and Moderna for adults and make it mandatory for armed forces personnel.

"The Biden Administration wants to knock on your door to see if you're vaccinated," tweeted Ohio Rep. Gym Jordan. "What's next? Knocking on your door to see if you own a gun?"

Guns. quite possibly the most important things to a repube. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING revolves around guns.

The administration doesn't have the power to unilaterally promote the mRNA vaccines from EUA to regular approval. No matter what zombie Antonin Scalia says about the Unitary Executive.

It's not just knee-jerk opposition - don't forget they are overwhelmingly evangelicals who fervently believe there's an inevitable end of the world battle of good and evil quickly approaching and that the Earth is entirely disposable because we're getting a shiny new one soon.

It's 100% a death cult.

Sexy Jesus: As long as we can keep up with vaccines against new variants I do not see the problem here.  We could use a good old culling and if the hillwilliams want to self-select, who are we to stand in the way of their freedom?


Problem with this thinking is that they won't die, not enough of them anyway.  What they will do is serve as a laboratory for new, possibly more dangerous strains to form.  And maybe even strains that will easily bypass current vaccines.

Now, the virus doesn't care if it's in a genyouwine all-american beef-fed cracker body or a dirty foreign body when it conducts its little genetic craps game.  And there are a shiat-ton of unvaccinated people in the third world.  At this point, we would get more bang for our buck in reducing the chances of such an emergence by focusing our efforts on willing unvaccinated in other countries.  It's still in the US's very selfish self-interest to prevent another pandemic, so this shouldn't be demonized like foreign aid often is.

And, I think we can get  a twofer for this.  Tell redneck America they have until, I don't know, August 30th to get their free vaccination, and after that, we're sending all of the free stuff over to Africa to vaccinate Africans.  If you want one after that, it will be $150/dose.

So, since they can't seem to find anything to rally behind that sticks, they are falling back to the classics. I see that Jordon and Cawthorne have received their talking points already, and the rest are sure to follow. I expect Boebert and FauxNews to be all over this by nightfall.

You know lining up everyone who refuses to get a vaccine and giving them a choice between a bullet in the head and taking the vaccine pretty sure they would take the bullet.

Seriously, it's not enough that MAGAts don't give a shiat about the health and well-being of their families or their friends or their neighbors. They will not rest until everyone doesn't give a shiat. Until everyone is just as much a thoughtless cock as their lord and savior has shown himself to be.

Here...let me alter this statement and see if they agree with it:

Enticing, coercing, intimidating, mandating, or pressuring anyone to take the vaccine carry a baby to term is a bad policy which will deteriorate the public's trust and confidence in the State's vaccination efforts to reduce abortions"

KarmicDisaster: Death cultists are going to get one of the door to door people killed.


Yes, This.

More than one canvasser is going to be staring at a loaded gun and it is entirely possible that one is going to catch a bullet.

This door to door idea in normal time, they are not normal times, would be helpful. Not now.
(Anybody remember about the self reading electrical meters and Tx. Two installers  got shot. One died)

The holdouts are fanatical, mis/disinformed or just very stupid.
Nothing will change the minds of the fanatics but the others can be reached.

I believe the some of the red state Governors have the right idea. Get the trusted local "leaders" to get out there and get their people with the program.

Yes, I am aware that these same Governors helped create the problem in the first place and now that is backfiring they want a instant results "take back" That ain't going to happen.

I am also aware that the local leaders also helped create the problem and in large numbers are continuing to.

At this point I take the pragmatic approach of help is help and we need all the help we can get.
But sending Govment men door to door ain't the way to do it.
