conservatives for the past year: "its only deadly to old unhealthy people conservatives today: "why is the virus so deadly to this group that is overwhelmingly old and unhealthy? must be the deepstate"


BriefDownpour

"The virus is hurting the wrong people!" - Conservatives, probably.


Ripoldo

Yeah they practically cheered it on when it first hit the urban areas, then it went rural...


Joopsman

It first broke out in the Seattle area. Trump & Co. wanted to just let it go because it was only going to kill Democrats. These people are beyond despicable.


williamfbuckwheat

So basically just like AIDS 40 years ago which was initially only seen as a problem in San Fransisco and NYC (as well as really only in the gay community or some immigrant enclaves) ...


DorisCrockford

I had rural parents calling me up on the hotline trying to get help for their son with AIDS, because their family doctor refused to see him. It was so fucking ugly. COVID is a totally different virus, but the ugliness is the same. >Each man’s death diminishes me, >For I am involved in mankind. >Therefore, send not to know >For whom the bell tolls, >It tolls for thee.

Joopsman

I’m sure that was the model they were following.


jkszos

While the two pandemics are different in many ways, there are similarities. Have you seen the language used around AIDS compared to how Trump spoke of Covid? Somewhat similar too..

Ohh, trust me it was us liberal progressives the orange mango dictator Mussolini wanted as well. You know the ones that protested that summer along with the mysterious Campbell soup throwing heavier than brick 🧱 Antifa. Meanwhile, government agents and off duty police officers where in the crowd breaking windows starting fires 🔥. Let’s not forget in Portland the mini van kidnapping of protesters 🪧 never to be discussed on TV. What happened to the people kidnapped?


buddyboy1548

Yes, good reminder to remember .. adding to that, remember when those planes from China arrived with Americans being evacuated out of Wuhan to the military base there in WA ? Ok, remember, they were 'not sequestered and they were also allowed to move freely amongst the base and outside the base. Then they were allowed to fly throughout the US and the spread was on and never looked back. Hence, the spread started to multiply. That was one of Pompeo's first major fu*kups and the Press did 'not pounce on it .. not even CNN, MSNBC, ABC, etc.. I couldn't fu*king believe it ... I yelled at the TV and shouted what the fu*k are you all are doing .. but I'm just a regular pion citizen with a masters and military background. Thats also during the time when Trump had so many passes from democrats and tge press of which any other president would have bern impeached in his or her 1st 90 days in office.


killbot0224

Why do you think Trump and the GOP kept the lines clogged with so many hundreds of petty controversies for 4 years? The base doesn't care about the little outrages and abuses of power.... But it obscures the even worse negligent homicide that they commit. And when they're called out that they *did* have the power and obligation to *do something* they get a free pass (again) from their base because they say "We don't want to force anything because freeeedumb!" and the morons cheer.


CrossYourStars

Not only did they cheer it on, they actively engaged in policies to make it more difficult for more populous states like New York and California to fight the pandemic in the early stages because it made their Democrat governors look bad. Now here we are when we have a very effective vaccine and significantly less supply chain issues for PPE and the red states are getting fucked really hard.


Altruistic-Text3481

They won’t get vaxxed to make Biden look like a joke! Jokes on them…🤣

dukeofmadnessmotors

Just like with AIDS. They made fun of the gay plague until closeted Republicans started getting it.


lasagna-for-everyone

Yeah republicans have become literally evil. I remember how excited they were when the virus was mostly affecting dems. Now the chicken has come home to roost.

Empathy is a two way street. They’ve not shown empathy to anyone since before Reagan. I don’t feel bad for them. At all.


BongarooBizkistico

They watched trump gas legal peaceful protestors so he could have his picture taken in front of a church with an upside down bible. By their own definition he's evil and they also worship him because they're the "good guys" so there's literally nothing they can be wrong about.


FBIVanAcrossThStreet

> Yeah republicans have become literally evil. This isn't new -- many of them started in the 1970s and 1980s. But you're right, it's been getting progressively worse since the propaganda freed them from facing any responsibility for even acknowledging basic facts. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_strategy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2%80%93Contra_affair https://thebrokenelbow.com/2015/10/05/rupert-murdoch-and-ronald-reagan-propaganda-pals/ https://publicseminar.org/essays/ronald-reagans-worst-decision-created-rush-limbaugh/

Mother fuckers


beefprime

Yeah I mean, they did the exact same shit with AIDS


chillintheforest

But now I'm honestly conflicted on whether to cheer it on (in the US). Letting the virus spread unrestricted, as is happening either way, might be the only chance to actually reach herd immunity. It would be nice if that could've waited for vaccines to be approved for kids first, but unfortunately it looks like COVID hospitalizations will reach an all-time high within a few weeks. I'm surprised the federal government isn't making a bigger deal of it. It seems likely that some southern states are going to declare a state of emergency in the next month. Alabama has already been out of ICU beds for a week or so. With the growth rate of hospitalizations, I imagine it's going to be an absolute disaster very soon.


zerogravity111111

My absolute favorite Trump era quote. I think some trump rally queen said it and it completely encapsulated how completely fucked up trump supporters are. He's wasn't hurting the right people, epic.


CyAScott

They said the opposite when AIDS was first becoming a problem.


meatball402

They actively encouraged its spread in blue states last year and took steps to deny medical equipment and PPE to those states.


Squeakyboboball

That's why some of them disapproved of Trump.


DarthGuber

ClumsyThumsGus

This is the proper subtext and the entirety of their "belief" system.


endMinorityRule

I want to know why dimwitted conservatives think the survival rate is 99.9%. death rate is 16 times the 0.1% they fantasize about.


StarvingWriter33

It’s because they’re using bad math. The 99.9% figure started being spread around last year, when the figure was at about 300k dead. According to their math, USA has 330 million people, and since only 300k were dead, 99.9% of the nation has survived COVID so far. Boom! 99.9% survival rate! And this became a meme among the Q-sphere. They ignore that: 1. The death toll has more than doubled since then, and we’re over 650k dead now. So the “national survival rate” is actually 99.8% now. 2. That’s not even how you measure the death rate. You look at how many people got Covid and of that population, how many died. While the figures are almost certainly wildly inaccurate, right now the reported figures are 40 million cases (with a good chunk of that being people who got it twice) and 656k dead. Of the closed cases, 31 million survived, 656k died. That’s a 2% death rate. So if you get COVID, you have a 1 in 50 chance of dying. Unless, of course, you’re vaccinated, in which the odds of dying drops drastically to 1 in 4,750 chance.


owennagata

Yes, by this logic lung cancer has a survival rate of over 99% because fewer than 1% of the population died of it last year.


don_salami

Also decapitation.


shhalahr

"Don't believe Big EMT! 'Injury Incompatible with Life' is a total hoax!" /s


Scottamus

They've also just figured out what button divide is on the calculator and when they see 1/50 is 0.02 they then triumphantly announce that there's 0.02% death rate. I've literally seen these calculations on reddit. Can't fix this stupid.


Ted_Rid

I dare say there are also probably more than 150 conservative antivax radio hosts, so 3 dead out of 150 would be expected. But on top of that, their odds would be dramatically higher because birds of a feather flock together.


my_4_cents

147 to go, then


scottmartin52

I haven't seen the actual calculations on reddit, just the final answer with the above confusion. Sometimes the poster, not always on reddit, is an influential person. So stupid is as stupid does. Then it goes viral!


boredguy12

That 1/50 chance is assuming you get medical care. If the hospitals are FULL TO THE BRIM with other covid patients then you're not getting a ventilator, and thus far likelier to die, or at least suffer permanent damage to the lungs, heart or brain


riwalenn

And this rate is for all ages and medical conditions prior to covid. The risk for people > 50yo is higher.


fptackle

This is what I was looking for. Thanks for the explanation. I kept wondering how they keep getting this 99.9% number!


ughlacrossereally

"So stop with all this this walking around in groups and carrying weapons and setting of firecrackers to scare tigers away. It's a foolish waste of time and resources because they're just little wimps."


THE_mobmommaX9

Well, math and science and reading are hard. They rely on politicians to explain it to them because obviously, they are the experts.

scottmartin52

I have seen people get up and leave a ted talk at the first mention of numbers.


griffinicky

To be fair, math anxiety is fairly common (I think I've seen estimates between 15-30% of the general population?), and political views probably have little to do with it. Even well educated people can have an aversion to math or numbers, especially if they don't do a lot of math/deal with numbers in their everyday lives.

jtshinn

If they are considering it at all and not just parroting what they have heard then they fudge the math. And consider the deaths against the entire population, not the infected population.


cdreid

Like all conservative "ideas" it comes from a meme. I explained to a couple of them that you dont count people who were never infected in the survival rate..then i stopped caring. Reap what you sow


stentorius_maxim

Remember after 9/11 when conservatives (talk shows/chat rooms/forums) were going CRAZY about dieing in a terrorist attack, so they did things like buy all the duct tape in walmarts (to be used on doors "to stop anthrax"). FOR HOW SERIOUS THEY TOOK THAT: The possibility of dying in a terrorist attack was: **0.000009%** (actual number at the hieght of the war) , yet they were freaking out over that.

williamfbuckwheat

It's alot more to do I think with them being extremely stubborn or thinking they are somehow better/cooler than everyone else by not following the rules (aka not being a SHEEPLE) and refusing a shot. I think nearly all of them know it probably will help keep them safe in some way but are so wrapped up with being a supposed rulebreaker or making a scene that they just don't care. You used to see this same mentality all the time with people who would flat out refuse to wear seatbelts or motorcycle helmets when that became mandatory pretty much everywhere. However, a good number of those people learned the hard way that taking a stand didn't work out so well and aren't around to complain or were either convinced through legal penalties and/or seeing the consequences play out for others over time that it wasn't worth making a scene over.

JackieDaytona27

I'm starting to get the impression that not only being anti vaxx, anti mask and anti social distancing (cause it's cowardly and communist, obviously) is bad, but hanging out exclusively with other people who are also anti-vaxx/anti-mask and anti-social distancing when you are all these things might be a super-duper, hella bad idea...

Ozy-Man-D

Imagine no matter what you did in life, all you will be remembered for, is dying from Covid-19 because you didn't want to get vaccinated.

Where do they keep getting this 0.1% fatality rate statistic from. Everywhere I look it is solid around 2%.


OwlfaceFrank

They are lying liars. It's the republican platform.


pagerussell

Came here to say this because I also see them trot that number out all the time and it's infuriating. It's probably because they conflated covid and the flu from the get go and the 0.1% fatality rate is closer to the flu fatality rate.


rounding_error

I believe it's the percentage of the entire US population which had died from the virus as of about 6 months ago.


Trulex900

0.2 is


DarkTechnocrat

Good grief. By that logic a gunshot wound to the head has a better than 95% survival rate.


shhalahr

Simply put: They don't know shit about statistics.


cowman1890

I was scrolling to find this. If it's 2%, isn't that still like 6.5 million that could die? Do they not realize that is still a hell of a lot of people


BurpSuiteSpider

I've asked this question multiple times and here's what I got for an answer: That death rate is the number of people who have died versus the number of people. Meaning that if there's 100 people, 10 get infected, 1 dies, a logical person would say it's a 10% death rate. These people would say it's 1%.

RaddialFox

1% death rate is still millions of people. Im just glad that right wing douchebags are making up the majority of those numbers. It would be great if a couple senators and televangelists volunteer for that pile.

RaddialFox

Valenyn

It’s even a 2% one. People just throw out the lower number because it helps their argument


senorpuma

Which is higher or about the same as cancer (on average, obviously some forms of cancer are more deadly than others). Imagine if cancer was contagious.


endMinorityRule

mortality rate in the USA (where republicans have under-reported cases/deaths) is 1.6%, according to john hopkins. 100% - 1.6% is not 99.9%.


gatsby314

Sadly, the people who would argue that the difference between 1.6 and 0.1 is not a big deal don't realize that it's still MILLIONS of people.

Covid is not 99.9% survivable, oh, unless you mask and get vaccinated.


Trumpkake

Yup. And conservative subs are claiming red states are being invaded by covid19 carrying immigrants that are spreading the virus. Wait, y'all said it was a fake and survivable virus. Now, it's not? Or, since is a deadly virus, why not take precautions and the vaccine? They know what they are doing; they are getting sick and dying to own the Libs.

JayNotAtAll

To believe this conspiracy theory, you have to be dumber than words can explain. We said "get the vaccine, COVID will kill you". They said "nope", then they got COVID and died. No conspiracy


boo_boo_kitty_

But see, COVID is a hoax with a 99.9% survival rate and the vaccine is killing people! Its a conspiracy against our messiah l Trump!


gatsby314

Perhaps his statistics are incorrect. **shrug** Edit: I know his stats are wrong. The antivax/antimask crowd can't seem to settle on a consistent stay, let alone get it correct.


anti-torque

They are. It's a 98.2% survival rate in the US. The flu (a previous pandemic) has a 99.9% survival rate. I wouldn't mind if they came up with a vax for the flu that didn't require annual shots. It would be nice to not catch it anymore. Honestly, the last two years have been awesome, in that regard.


gatsby314

And AFAIK, the flu doesn't have nearly the same capacity for long-term effects as COVID-19.


[deleted]

Plus, there's a flu vaccine to help reduce total cases and severity. So, it's .1% mortality amongst less than the entire population. Masks and a bit of social distancing along with people getting vaccinated couldturn covid into just a flu. Oddly, countries with social distancing, masks and improved hygiene have also had reduced flu cases. If people who catch the flu just fucking use a sick day and stay home, there would be fewer deaths from the flu.


Accurate_Zombie_121

Big difference between the flu .01% death rate and Covid at 1.8% for those that do math.

Mrsricksanchez

They are coming for you Bill. Better go into hiding. Disappear for a few years. Maybe a decade to be safe. You dumb motherfucker


[deleted]

People also don't realize that infection is not a binary proposition. If you let a COVID positive person cough down your throat, you will likely get a much worse infection than if you had simply spoken with that person while wearing a mask. If you start out with 1,000 rather than 5 viral particles, you are skipping a lot of doubling-times and your infection will have a huge headstart over your immune system, resulting in more severe symptoms. So even if masks don't completely prevent infection, reducing the initial bio-burden is still potentially lifesaving (Viruses don't double like bacteria, so "doubling-time" is used loosely here to refer to proliferation)

NappyJose3

Honestly, does anyone know where this 99.9% survivable figure comes from? I keep seeing it referenced by people on the right and I suspect that it’s the amount of people who have died of Covid divided by the total population of the country.


thor11600

I’ve been waiting for the, “the demoncrat deep state came up with covid to wipe out the republicans”


elrey2020

Like, what’s an unacceptable death rate? 5%? 75% Give me a number. 1% is too high for me.


Lustle13

Even if it was 99.9% survivable (it's not, its somewhere between 2%-5%). That's still 328000 people lol. Just typical conservative deep seated need to be the oppressed.


WalkerAlabamaRanger

I always see that 99.9% number thrown around, but it always seems off to me. There are about 328,000,000 people in the US. .1 percent would mean that if every person in the US contracted COVID 328,000 people would succumb to the disease. The US has already seen almost twice that number of casualties, while it’s safe to assume many Americans have not contracted COVID. It’s possible that my numbers are off, so please correct me if I’m off.


AnonAlcoholic

That's because the 99.9% number is solely an entirely inaccurate figure thrown around by idiots who haven't actually looked it up.

But it’s not 99% survivable. What’s he odds of people dying from a disease they still refuse to accept is deadly with millions dead world wide. I’d say pretty damn high given they didn’t take precautions. Lol. Their choice.

Born as a side project spur from COINTELPRO, a blend of two projects called NOSHITSHIRLOCK and FUCKING OBVIOUSLY, the deep state has figured out a way to self-assassinate with the sheer power of stupidity.

I'm really wondering when they will finally understand that it was a virus released by the Democrats and the Anti-Vax propaganda was spread by the Democrats and their Russian Allies. I pretty happy with how it all worked out. We wanted to knock out 4 percent of the republican vote. We only got 3%, but, that's enough for a generational shift.

At this point, I only wish this was true. I just heard some minister say everyone with a vaccination should be put in camps. What is it with fascists and camps?

We control the FCC, let's pull their license. Nah, let's take a biological weapon from our secret lab and give it to these three chuckleheads. No way it would ever spread beyond them. Yeah, that makes sense.
