Anti-vaxx Chronicles: He wasn't afraid of any COVID, but Black people? Terrified of those

Facebook is a menace. COVID-19 is a menace. Conservatism is a cesspool. Together, those three ingredients have created a toxic stew of malevolent death and devastation. We can talk about all those things in the abstract, look at the numbers and statistics, and catch the occasional whiff of seditionist right-wing rhetoric. But I hadn’t really fully understood just how horrifying that combination of right-wing extremism, Facebook, and a killer virus was until I became a regular at the Herman Cain Awards subreddit. This series will document some of those stories, so we are aware of what the other side is doing to our country.

Let’s call today’s cautionary tale “Trucker.”

Given the date, the last president must’ve announced yet another end to that fake COVID pandemic that was actually the fault of China, though still very fake.

GUYS. 

IF YOU’RE WHITE…

BE AFRAID OF BLACK PEOPLE SPITTING ON YOUR FOOD. 

I mean, don’t eat at fast food places if you can avoid it. There are much healthier dietary options. But racism isn’t the reason why.

That number is obviously much higher, and extra extra higher in the red counties most impacted by COVID. In Mississippi and Alabama, about 1 in ever 300 residents has died of COVID. And the pandemic continues unabated in those states. 

If someone tells you that you have a chance to die in the most painful, miserable way possible, but a simple free jab will dramatically reduce those odds, would you take it? Well, if you’re reading it, you likely have. Most smart people have. Unfortunately, this is now a pandemic of the moronic.

Uh, it’s just him. 

I mean, he thinks chickens look like people from the Planet of the Apes, so you know he’s already a little off.

It makes the keypad easier to wipe clean, duh. 

And seriously, this is what they’re upset about. Who gives a damn if there’s plastic over the keypad.

Could’ve fooled me. He lives in total fear of Black people spitting on his fast food.

Yes, there was almost no flu last year, which shouldn’t be surprising given that schools were closed, people were masked and washing their hands, sporting events had no audiences, etc. When people don’t congregate in mass numbers, less disease is spread. 

SO WEIRD.

CRAZY, how the point of the vaccine is to dramatically lower one’s chances of death!

Can someone please educate these people about real Nazis?

Imagine a disease so deadly you have to be tested to know you have it! Like cancer. It’s just bonkers how you have to be tested regularly for breast and colon cancers. They can’t possibly be that deadly! ONLY diseases that give you immediate sniffles or maybe a headache are deadly.

I love their fantasy conversations with bosses, wait staff, and other people asking for vaccine information. As if businesses don’t have HR departments and vetted legal guidelines. They will surely be thwarted by a Facebook meme.

They never think it will affect them. Never. It didn’t start as a sinus infection. It started as COVID, which then started doing a number on his respiratory system. 

As a result, he’s doing just fine, except the breathing part, which is a minor part of being alive. 

Yes, most people recover just fine. But not everyone, so the point is to make sure you don’t end up on the wrong side of the odds. 

And that’s assuming you live through the ordeal. As Trucker realized, being stuck in bed for weeks does a number on your finances.

Holy shit, one day later. Doesn’t even look like he went to the hospital. Suffered in bed for a few weeks, and that was it. 

But he wasn’t afraid, like the wolves. Except for Black people spitting on his food, because even wolves are afraid of Black people.
