MAGA Congressman Falsely Claims Omicron Variant Is Part of Plot to Rig 2022 Election

At this point it's not worth the energy with these people; they won't be convinced; let them believe it and die. *Keeps scrolling*

I particularly like the general assertion that the Democrats have nigh-omnipotent power to manipulate elections nationwide...but chose, for some reason, to not use that power for a supermajority in the US House & Senate, nor to control the state legislatures that one day actually will be overturning the results of any election a Republican loses.

Just think, 150 years ago the Democrats were the racist twatwaffles.

Republicans only hate Democrats because they stopped being racist enough.

There are stupid doctors out there. It's part of the reason why you should seek a second opinion and have somebody in your court when possible. The best thing you can have is nurses in your family.

I know that's not always feasible for everybody. It's not always feasible for me.

They passed a massive tax cut bill for red states, handing red state governors billions to ensure their reelection.

So yea, laugh it up.

Yeah, that's more the truth.

I've my MD. I also have a Master's (Biomedical Sciences, specializing in Alzheimer's). You can't get through medical school, regardless of the school (as long as they're accredited- there are degree mills out there) without a certain level of intelligence.

However, that doesn't always equate to intelligence in other fields.

Of course, that assumes naivete on his part, which I'm not willing to assume is correct. Odds are good his eyes are open, and he's playing for the money aspect.

I knew a doc once who did similar. Smart guy, graduated with his DO from Michigan State- Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, in essence an MD with some ability to do musculoskeletal manipulation. However, he needed money. Lots of it. Went to a degree mill, got his DNM (Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine) and started shilling every homeopathic and naturopathic fringe cure there was. Megadosing vitamin C, chelation therapy, you name it.

Made a lot of money very quickly giving bored housewives who saw "ZOMG I HAVE LEAD" on a urine screen (which itself is a scam- you don't use urine to test lead) a "treatment regimen" and fixing a nonexistent problem.

It was all a grift.

I went to Thanksgiving dinner with my MAGAT extended family. Everybody steered clear of politics until after dessert. Suddenly the conversation was about what a villain Fauci is and what a genius Pyramid Ben Carson is for suggesting people not get vaccinated.
I stood up, thanked the hosts and walked out.

"Democrats will do anything to CHEAT."

But I thought we were importing Africans to illegally vote in precincts without voter ID laws. God damnit Biden, can't you do anything right.

Understand this - he knows, full well, that what he's saying is utter horseshiat. He's saying it because it costs him nothing to start another conspiracy theory, knowing that RWNJs are happy to spread such things around.

This isn't stupid - it's evil. He does this with full knowledge and deliberation, out of malice, hoping to sow more discord prior to the midterm elections. He doesn't care that his stupid-ass conspiracy theory seed may sicken or even kill folks should the Omicron variant become a real issue here in the U.S. - the lives of his nuttier followers are a small price to pay if it means that the GOP can regain a Congressional majority in '22 and, therefore, obstruct the Biden administration while enriching the rich at our expense.

Thanksgiving conversation with my mom:

Mom: Biden hasn't done anything. Trump accomplished a lot.

Me: Really? Like what?

Mom: Trump kept us out of a war.

Really? Which war?

Long pause

Well Biden is going to get us into a war.

Really? With whom?

China!

Wow, do you think some of our problems with China started about four years ago with the tariffs of the previous administration?

Very long pause

Let's not talk politics.

The Democrats were the racist Party because the degenerate Southern filth voted Dem after a Republican took their slaves away. Starting in the 1940s the Democrats began delousing themselves. The dSf spent the next couple decades infesting the GOP. Now the transfer is lagely complete

You're clearly not a MTG of Boebert voter.  It won't occur to any of them what you said as they are fed a steady diet of hate speech to incite violence and ignore corruption.
I am always surprised when a MSM journalist interviews Bannon, Flynn, or other criminals as if they were legitimate sources of reliable information.  They should be fired for promoting propaganda.

So, another new varant has sprung up. Isreal has shut down its borders, we have enacted travel bans, Rebublicans are already claiming it's a global conspiracy...

Is there something I am missing? Why is the omicron variant getting so much attention when it seems like we don't know anything about it yet? Poor lambda didn't have people freak out like this. And Delta had to actually put in the work before anyone worried so much. I never even read anything about xi (did we even have one?).

I get that it is very transmissible (maybe)
But doesn't it also have super mild symptoms (maybe) and has never infected a vaccinated person (maybe)?

Why are governments panicking?

If I were Psaki, I'd address this head on.  Newspapers from South Africa, whatever's reputable in the UK, Germany, all kinds.  And when questioned, just ask if Democrats are so powerful worldwide that they can manipulate the world into lying to *their own* citizens and subscribers for a mid-term election in the States?

And if someone says yes, ask them for proof.  And then every single day, ask them if they found that proof yet.  No need to clarify about what, since you'd be repeating the lie, just ask every day.  Even if they aren't in the room.  "Rep. Ronny Jackson - Any evidence at all since yesterday?  Is it possible you were wrong?  Okay, keep trying.  Let us know."

As a furriner, my favourite part is the implication that most of the world is in on this nefarious plot to sacrifice lives and businesses just so that Americans can vote by mail.

Here's the simple truth. As I was earning my biochemistry engineering degree, I interacted with many pre-med students at the university. Without a single exception, all were only concerned about maintaining a 4.0 GPA and taking the easiest path to maintaining a 4.0 GPA. Also without a single exception, all were not concerned at all about learning anything that they could not memorize for the next set of tests. Assuming that a single one of them is intelligent or knowledgeable about the things they memorized just means that you are ignorant about the education system.

ol' ronny the drunkard is a perfect example of that truism.

Yes, I know doctors will repeat the Freddo speech from the end of "Godfather II," but they should just be viewed as sad, inferior people who spent their lives in the pursuit of a grade and time on the links.

Think of doctors like the IT guy, who has a high opinion of himself/herself, but is merely a failed engineer with a neckbeard or slave to a cat.

This isn't even remotely true.  DOs and MDs go through the same residency programs and work side by side in hospitals and clinics across the country.  Also only about half of DO students are even learning manipulation as it is not a requirement to get the degree.
