A conservative colleague of mine posted a cartoon yesterday stating he did not understand why all of us, including those who are vaccinated, have to return to wearing face masks.
My colleague is not a stupid person. I believe he’s just playing to the stupid base because he knows what side of his stupid bread gets the stupid butter. But let’s pretend he is stupid because you have to be stupid to not understand why we have to go back to wearing face masks.
It’s pretty simple. We have to go back to wearing face masks because of simplistic, whiny, moronic, pathetic, selfish rightwing assholes who have spent the past year and a half attacking science and those who spread facts.
There is no excuse for failing to understand this because the information is readily available and it’s been repeated again and again. Maybe instead of attacking Dr. Fauci on a minute-by-minute basis, you should have been listening to him.
And since you morons were in direct defiance of health guidelines, you have no excuse not understanding why the virus is making a comeback. Surely along the way of screaming about your rights and liberty while describing those who pushed vaccines as tyrannical socialists, you understood what you were railing against.
You were told if you didn’t vaccinate, that you would help the coronavirus survive and even make a comeback. It’s now making a comeback as a new variant. You spent a year and a half making the pandemic a partisan issue and you have finally succeeded. It’s partisan and mostly killing Republicans. Good job, Jackass.
There is no guarantee you won’t catch the coronavirus after you’ve been vaccinated, but your odds of catching it are a lot lower. And if you do get it, your case will probably be very mild. Hospitals are being overburdened again by an influx of patients with over 90 percent of them being unvaccinated. Do you still not understand? Are you being willfully stupid? Two plus two equals…what? I know you can do this.
And the thing is, you did all this out of being selfish. You guys complained about the inconvenience of wearing masks while knowing full well that you don’t wear it to protect yourself, you wear it to protect others. But you were selfish and entitled. A lot of you wouldn’t get the vaccine because you felt it wouldn’t protect you, or you didn’t care if it would protect you. The best reason to be vaccinated isn’t to protect your own selfish stupid ass. The best reason to get the vaccine is to protect others. It’s to defeat this virus. The best weapon this virus has is ignorance. Your ignorance, hate, and selfishness kept it alive and brought it back.
And, you didn’t just refuse to cooperate and be a part of the solution. You attacked those who were being bigger than you. You attacked those who weren’t being selfish asshole babies. You attacked those who were helping the nation while you were trying to destroy it. You even made yourself out to be the victim, claiming society was ostracizing you because you’re an independent thinker, a freedom lover, or whatever stupid shit Tucker told you to say this week. Next, Tucker’s going to tell you that you’re being victimized by being blamed for bringing the virus back.
And when the face mask mandates were lifted, you took advantage of the hard work of others. You screamed that you shouldn’t have to prove you’ve been vaccinated so you could go into crowded places and spread the virus again.
The virus is coming back, forcing us to resume mask mandates and create vaccine mandates (like the one they have at Fox News in the building where Tucker screams against mask mandates). It’s coming back because you’re an asshole. This is all your fault.
Now do you understand?
