COVID Conspiracies Cont’d

As Trump sends mixed messages on coronavirus, some loyal supporters cling to conspiracy theories

Since the early days of the virus, the president has downplayed its impact.

^^^^ that doesn't sound very compassionate. Sounds like advice that you'd give an enemy, not a neighbor.

And yet we are not to say China or blame them. Weird

Yet if you look at the Missouri Dashboard, there is an average of about 1 death a day from the Kung Flu for the last week. It almost like things are getting better and not worse. Weird.

And yet if you look at the Missouri dashboard kc has 3215 cases of the Chinese red death, 2100 new cases have since the boy blunder encouraged and participated in the riots. Weird.

It’s almost like dimwit run cities want the virus to run amok to kill people and businesses? Really weird.

Dr. Rex Archer should be placed in jail for allowing Mayor Lucas and his protesters to run wild in Kansas City without masks.

It appears there are a lot of corona-virus deaths on their hands as a result.

How can a police officer be arrested for trying to subdue a criminal resisting arrest while Dr. Rex Archer and Mayor Lucas are not charged for negligent manslaughter?

Test 10X as many ppl, get 10X "infections" which in itself means nothing.

Mostly ppl who have no idea they have it and a bunch of contact traced ppl labeled as an infection w/o any testing ala the fellow the other day in wyandotte county threatened with jail if did not quarantine.

The "tests" can't distinguish btw covid and the common cold.

Faked media driven fake plague ever.

Fake mass hysteria.

LOL. Yet the homicide rate is twice the rate of 'covid' deaths. Way to go Kansas City and BLM!

Anonymous said...

^^and yet homicides have nothing to to do with COVID stupid Boomer. Stay on topic. OK Boomer? Weird.

Anonymous said...

^8:24 and yet, homicides are twice Covid-19 deaths which shows Corona Virus is an over-hyped media hoax like the Russian conspiracy.

More Americans have died of heart attacks, cancer, diabetes, car accidents and homicides than corona-virus.

Moderna is close to a vaccine so the Marxist Democrats will have to find something new to spread gloom and despair.

Weird.

@8:24 - you should be more worried of dying of AID's than corona virus with your Democrat Party lifestyle. Marxist Democrat Party men are 99% Gay with the other 1% suffering from dementia like Sleepy Joe Biden.

^^ @8:24 obtains his news from watching "The View" with his Boomer Grandma while eating Grandma's Eskimo Pie. Weird.

I love how there's this whole "it's all China's fault" mantra among Trumptards as if that gives Trump a full pass on doing anything. Fact is, Trump has shit the bed and it's going to cost him the Presidency.

Weird, a guy who bankrupts casinos, runs sham foundations, and pretty much kills every other business he gets into can't manage a coherent response to a global pandemic that the rest of the modern world has under control while we just let it run rampant. Whoda thunk it?

"OK Boomer," “Geezer” or another variation used in a disparaging tone = the new N-word equivalent phrase that tries to diminish and dehumanize the elderly and make them sound stupid in a “hip” way. Imagine if people started saying, "OK N****r." Age discrimination and elder abuse are alive and well in America, and these issues are as disgusting, shameful and wrong as racism.

Anonymous said...

8:30 - whoa, there's homicides, in addition to COVID?? No way. Shut down the testing and let's go back to normal. See guys, there's homicides going on too. We don't have time for pandemics. We got homicides.

Anonymous said...

Ageism = Racism. Ok got it. Damn, what if you're an old AND black guy. Double fucked!

Weird but not a single Hyvee, Home Depot or Chicken n Pickle had to be shut down due to employees contracting the virus from customers.

No one should forget how China started all of this bullsh*t.

842 yeah trust Biden who has been in office for 45 years...he'll fix it. Trust Schumer and pelosi who have been fixing things for the past 35 years. They'll do it this time.

Anonymous said...

A lot of the stupid younger generation keeps spreading the virus at their house parties, bars and protests. There's no other reason for the uptick. They don't care about harming anyone else. Self-centered narcissists.

China wants Biden to win. It's not surprising they would unleash COVID to destroy the American economy and try to get Trump out of office, but Biden isn't the right candidate to get an economy blazing again -- Trump is. Biden is ready to come in and raise taxes on companies and our paychecks, and destroy the oil, gas and coal industries. Talk about tanking an economy even more.

Other reasons could be handling of mail, grabbing door handles of doors that aren't automated, atm machines, handling of currency.

People of any age do those type of things daily. Then they go about running their game without remembering to wash hands.

Younger people aren't as conscientious as the wiser, older people hence more germ spreading.

Anonymous said...

^^well that and the old people don't really have anything to do, no friends or family, never go out, and are too broke to do anything so they're less susceptible.

I had a relative show up one evening around last years holiday season. Had some type of virus and what ever it was I didn't want no part of it.

Well I caught it and used quite a few over the counter remedies and herbal supplements. Darn near stroked out after taking the meds pretty much all at the same time really but virus went away with in half a day.

If that was a beginning stage of covid 19 you don't want any part of it. I have type O blood and that virus, whatever it was, wasn't discriminate.
