So we should NEVER re-open, right???

Fact: TEMPORARY lockdowns do not STOP the spread of a virus - it only SLOWS it
down in order to "flatten the curve".

Insane Democrats tried calling for Lockdowns until there was a vaccine but the
American People said NO.

Thank G-d, there are still some sane Americans left.

Many of the protestors come from a population that was already hit hard. The national guard members may have been more cautious.


There wasn't any specific population attending protests. Just a mix of liberal leaning people of all races, ethnic groups, nationalities, etc.

Were liberals hit harder during the pandemic?

Yes, it is sad that politicians refused to protect their populations and that this will cost tens of thousands of lives now...

This all could have been avoided...

China has over 1 billion inhabitants, 3x the size of the USA.

They stopped the virus under 5000 fatalities...

the USa were warned.
they could have acted all through January, February, March - but they did nothing to stop the health crisis - except stop some incoming flights... at a moment when community spread within the USA was already rampant...

That any health information can be considered "left wing" or "right wing" is dangerous to this country. Healthcare shouldn't be political.


When 1,000 health professionals sign that they support the BLM protests in middle of a
pandemic - that tells you that Health Care IS political.

The Democrats have taken over the news media, entertainment, schools and colleges, science and health care - that is what socialists do. EVERYONE must bow to the socialist agenda - as
seen in the example above.

That's why I said China.
China is bigger.
China stopped at 3000 fatalities or so...
USA are over125'000 fatalities...

Did China send their sick elderly infected patients back to their nursing homes? Because Cuomo did that which drove up the death rate. And Cuomo had a Javitz center and Navy hospital boat that he could have used but still chose to send infected people to the nursing homes to infect other vulnerable people. Cuomo also chose to stockpile ventilators and had patients share a ventilator instead. And Cuomo did not allow patients to have a family member with them which led to neglect of patients. What would the world have done if China did what Cuomo did?

Weren't there infected soldiers on the boats?

I think the main mistake Cuomo and de Blasio made was that they did not close down New York in February, before they had the outbreak, rather than in March, when it was almost too late...

Sending infected people to nursing homes was not a good idea either... also many people got infected in hospitals (but that was also the case in Italy or Israel), because there was no strict testing, and no strict separation between the wards...

Allowing street protests during a pandemic is a bad idea.
Organising campaing rallies during a pandemic is even a worse idea...
And mocking trump for the low attendence in Tulsa is even a worse idea... because they should have praised each and every Trump supporter who did NOT come to the rally in Tulsa (or Phoenix)

If you are attempting to criticize me, I believe that science is apolitical. I get my information from apolitical sources unless you believe that Public Health departments of various states and governments, Dr. Faucci, CDC and studies released by reputable institutions are "left wing" or political in some way. I don't get my factual information from OPED or political commentators of any.political suasion.

However, it has been shown that right wing news sources such as Fox consistently underplayed the danger of Covid-19 and that this correlates with posters on imamother who parrot right wing news seem to be Johnny on the spot in terms of denying the need for masks or denied that Covid was more dangerous than flu - and still do attempt to show that Covid deaths are insignificant in some way. Some have posted that the coverage of Covid is a plot to destroy the Trump administration for example.

When I posted this, one of the posters attacked it as because the Washington Post is a source of "fake news". DD She had obviously not bothered to read the article which merely reported the findings of two findings from reputable research organizations and a poll. Refusing to even read and consider information which doesn't conform to one's belief system isn't doesn't enable one to learn or have meaningful dialogues about anything.

https://www.washingtonpost.com.....tion/

In April, Kathleen Hall Jamieson of the Annenberg Public Policy Center and Dolores Albarracin of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign published a peer-reviewed study examining how Americans’ media diets affected their beliefs about the coronavirus.

“We are receiving an incredible number of studies and solid data showing that consuming far-right media and social media content was strongly associated with low concern about the virus at the onset of the pandemic,” said Irene Pasquetto, chief editor of the Harvard Kennedy School Misinformation Review, which published one of the studies.

Administering a nationally representative phone survey with 1,008 respondents, they found that people who got most of their information from mainstream print and broadcast outlets tended to have an accurate assessment of the severity of the pandemic and their risks of infection. But those who relied on conservative sources, such as Fox News and Rush Limbaugh, were more likely to believe in conspiracy theories or unfounded rumors, such as the belief that taking vitamin C could prevent infection, that the Chinese government had created the virus, and that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention exaggerated the pandemic’s threat “to damage the Trump presidency.”

These findings held even after controlling for viewers’ political affiliation, education, gender and age.


We have leftwing and rightwing media in this country. And both wings think the other side
is Fake News.

Quoting a leftwing source stating that those who watch rightwing sources are wrong -
well, that is not really a convincing argument.


And there is videotape of DEMOCRATS throughout February stating that Covid19 is not
a threat to the United States and encouraging people "Go to China Town, Go to Mardi Gras".
Then Democrats screamed Stay Home. Then Democrats cheered the BLM Mass Protests.
Then 1,000 DOCTORS signed supporting Mass Protests. Now Democrats and Doctors are
saying Stay Home Again.

First Medical Establishment said DON'T WEAR MASKS - they don't help. Then Medical
Establishment admits they LIED because there was a mask shortage and Now the Medical Establishment is telling everybody to Wear Masks.

The Experts predicted Millions of deaths in USA which was obviously wrong.

This is why people don't trust the Democrat Party or their "experts".

Please can you link me to a source with evidence that Democrats and their experts predicted millions of deaths?

It was originally predicted by a British epidemiologist, who later backtracked on these figures, though Trump still claims to have saved these numbers.

Trump is the one who keeps repeating that he saved millions from death. (Yes, I heard him on record saying that.)
