Re: Help me underdstand this
So let me get this straight. According to you;
Covid19 is a lethal epidemic.
Attending protests to seek the re-opening of the state during the middle of the pandemic threatens grandma and, since “essential workers” will bear the brunt of any outbreak, likely racist as well.
But when one is attending mass demonstrations, even ones involving violence and property damage, against a politically-acceptable cause, or attending a funeral in a packed church full of un-masked people, it’s utterly acceptable from an epidemiological standpoint.
Unless there’s tear gas involved. Because then, Covid is a deadly pandemic.
Remembering, as always, that y’all are the “party of science”, not febrile superstition, yessireebob.
That is all.
