Yeah the filthy plague rats that spread the plague around with no regard to human life really hate it when you call them the filthy plague rats they are. They're basically one step from "mass murderer" but we're supposed to be civil to them? fark that shiat forever. The murderous filthy plague rats can fark right off and hurry up and get on with the dying.

It's not that they are idiots. They are scared. And, sometimes, scared people will do things that are not in their best interests.

The conspiracy theories give them false a feeling of control and a sense that THEY know what's going on and that THEY are in the know.

In their world...anyone who challenges their perception or their particular White Whale is either in on the conspiracy or is a rube taken in by the nefarious forces that turn Mayonnaise into Miracle Whip or whatever their particular brand of conspiracy alleges.

People like to think they're smart, knowledgeable, and "in the know".    It's why some of them like conspiracy theories.  Because they "know" something other people don't and it makes them feel special.  So when you have someone who continually pushes science and reality, calls those ignorant idiots ignorant idiots, it makes them sad and angry.  Because idiots.  So they get angry at the ones working in reality.  It's why the abuse of healthcare workers, scientists, and "the elite" has grown so much in the US over the past 60+ years.

Fauci has verifiably lied or "corrected previous statements" a bunch of times, he's hardly 100% accurate or anything approaching that.  But he's also not The Demon Fauci.

Yeah, f*ck this sky high.  I don't care what they are.  They have the same access to information as I do, so this is on them.  They're scared because they're idiots.  If they were smarter, they'd seek out good scientific info, and then they probably wouldn't be scared.

Again, for the folks in the back: THEYRE ONLY SCARED BECAUSE THEYRE IDIOTS.

Erm, no. I don't wear seatbelts because I'm scared, I wear them because it's demonstrated they save lives and there is no good reason not to take such simple precautions when they're right at your fingertips. Informed caution is not the same thing as raw fear.

I'm not scared of Covid, but that doesn't mean I'm going to pretend that simple preventative measures are some horrible form of oppression.

He corrected and explained as new info came to light.  Kind of a scientific approach, huh?  Of course the science was wrong sometimes, or not accurate enough, or whatever.  I'd still trust him infinitely more than the guy who has over 30,000 documented lies in his 4 years in office.

Well, he's a politician too.  You don't hold that position for that long successfully without having some political skeelz.  But you're right, he's a scientist first and his political acumen is in service to that.

For conservatives new facts become known and reported that equals lying. Trump has an incredible amount of verifiable lies with people "correcting" almost every day yet conservatives consider him a truth teller.

People like jethroe live in a false reality that makes them fell good and give them something and/or someone to hate. Why republicans are broken I am not sure. The effect on America I am sure about and it is horrible.

Shamwow: For conservatives new facts become known and reported that equals lying.


Conservatives and conspiracy theorists. "New information" is an alien concept to them.

They'll be some major event unfolding before our eyes, with the media scrambling to cover it in real time. (That's a whole 'nother topic!) Inevitably, the initial info can be sketchy, as we're learning as we go.

For them, this is evidence of a cover-up. The initial bad info is always true and the later facts are always lies.

Now that I think about it, I'm not sure why I listed conservatives and conspiracy theorists as two different groups, given that these days they both behave the same.

What you call wrong or inaccurate is what was known at the time with very limited data. Information is still, and will keep on evolving, especially as the virus evolves.
There's nothing wrong with using the best data available at the time when you're trying to guide the frickin world during a pandemic.
Heh the irritation is not directed at you, it's directed at those who refuse to keep up with the information in a logical scientific approach.

Exactly. Avoiding unnecessary risk is not "living in fear." I put on clothes and shoes to protect me from the elements so I don't injure myself. I take a pill to prevent me from contracting HIV and one for keeping my blood pressure down. I obey traffic lights because I don't want to be in a crash and hurt myself or someone else. I don't "fear" injuring myself, or HIV, or hypertension--I just don't want to have to deal with them if I don't have to.

Why should a man with more degrees and responsibility than me be forced to handle menial sh**posting and insults? That's terribly inefficient. I nominate myself as media spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services and promise to bring all the anti-vax mockery up to acceptable standards.
