I’m a bit slow on the uptake, so please, by all means explain this to me.
Let’s assume that the Holocaust numbers are real: 6 million dead from starvation, shootings, gassing, etc. Now let us assume that this was official Nazi policy, they WANTED all those Jews dead.
And in turn, let us assume that Trump and the GOP had a policy of ignoring and minimizing the Coronavirus threat. Let us assume further that Trump and GOP WANT 3 million, mostly elderly Americans DEAD to save on Social Security and Medicare. (Remember, the GOP in the 1930s fought a bitter, bloody fight with FDR over Social Security and Medicare: they NEVER wanted it.)
Now, what pray tell, is the difference between Trump and the GOP and the Nazis of Germany?
Is it only wrong to orchestrate the deaths of millions for racial, nationalistic reasons?
If that is true, why then is killing 3 million to achieve “herd immunity” the “right thing to do”, but killing 6 million Jews to achieve a Jew-free Germany, is wicked and evil?
How is Trump and the GOP any different from the Nazis?
We don’t assume fairytales. I believe you have written the dumbest question on this site. Congratulations.
Was the disease deliberately spread / allowed to spread for criminal reasons? That is the trillion dollar question.
The National Socialists treated Jews for typhus and plague, cholera etc. That’s the question.
Flu bros seething lmao
I’m going to say 300,000 is a wild underestimation.
By the time everything reopens, and people begin spreading it again, we will be hitting half million to a million.
Americans just don’t give a shit.
Conservatives all over the West don’t give a shit about anyone else, until they are personally affected, then they expect everyone to care about their problems. This is why I don’t care if the shut down costs them a lot of money, because I don’t give a shit about them either.
This thing is going to get bad. If you are smart, do half of what Hunter did. U-Haul it out to the backwoods, but DO NOT BUY FAST FOOD to help this economy. Learn to grow your own, because the conservatives are going to make this situation as bad as Spanish Flu was.
I was just thinking with no health insurance, and hospitals charging $7000 a day per person, what will that do to a young family if they catch it? The answer is, it would ruin them for life.
Will Trump and the Republicans be paying the hospital bills of people who catch this because of their polices?
Fuck no, because they don’t give a shit.
Yes, that’s probably the most realistic assessment.
Very few people care. In fact, the “flu truthers” probably don’t actually believe that the virus is a hoax, or that the deaths are fake.
“Fake deaths” really means “deaths I could give a shit less about.” The flu truthing is just an oblique, polite way to say “I don’t care in the slightest if several million die,” except that it sounds better to say it isn’t real, even to themselves. It’s a “polite” fiction covering up, yet communicating, the actual meaning, which is “open everything up, the lives of the millions who perish don’t mean dick to me.”
Yup. I’m just starting to reconnect with work colleagues across various institutions and I’m finding that a lot of people are personally affected. Everyone is going to feel some pain from this. Calling it a made up event is pretty bizarre.
