If any American wonders why Republican-led states are being decimated by the Delta variant of COVID-19, they only want to contemplate the stupidity and lies being unfold by Republican leaders.
No person actually likes silly folks; they’re embarrassing to be round and customarily are the topic of ridicule by even low-IQ folks. As a common rule we tolerate relations and mates who’re cognitively challenged, however solely so long as their stupidity doesn’t pose a menace to anybody of their proximity.
Nevertheless, when politicians and celebrities intentionally unfold misinformation based on silly arguments and easily-debunked theories, they need to be ostracized, referred to as out as inherently silly, and prohibited from opening their silly pie holes.
Republicans are so intent on creating COVID-19 killing fields in areas they govern and wield affect over silly those who they’re resorting to outright lies and insane reasoning that merely boggle the thoughts. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) falls into each classes and leads one to marvel how he manages life’s easiest day by day duties that any brainless single-called amoeba has mastered.
In an effort to pushback towards vaccine and masks mandates, Ted Cruz used an instance that ought to embarrass different actually silly folks.
In response to Cruz, folks ought to have the liberty to unfold a lethal virus as a result of in America they’ve the liberty to offer themselves most cancers. The ignorant sot advised CNBC:
“ what? People who smoke after they gentle up a cigarette, they’re growing their probabilities they’re gonna get lung most cancers. That is probably not a sensible resolution to do, however in America we get folks the liberty to make choices about their very own well being, even when we don’t approve of the choices they could finish.”
First, and as an apart, in America Republicans are infamous for not letting ladies have the liberty to make choices about their very own well being, however that’s the topic of one other dialogue; though it provides to the extent of stupidity a heaping serving to of hypocrisy to Cruz’s argument towards vaccine and masks mandates. Simply sayin’.
It’s true Individuals “get the liberty” to gentle up a cigarette in the event that they select, however they’re closely restricted to the place they’ll gentle as much as stop them from endangering the general public.
The one legitimate a part of Cruz’s comment is that individuals who smoke do improve their probabilities of getting lung most cancers. Nevertheless, because the CDC reports and even silly folks know as a reality:
“Not solely does smoking trigger most cancers and loss of life in individuals who smoke, there isn’t a risk-free degree of publicity to secondhand smoke.”
That’s exactly why smoking is banned in each area open to the general public; second hand smoke has brought on thousands and thousands of deaths in America.
If Cruz wasn’t so intent on proving his anti-vaxxer, anti-mask bona fides, one would suppose he might have remembered that straightforward reality. He has been on a passenger jet just lately when he flew to Cancun Mexico to flee the chilly when Texas residents had been freezing as a result of misplaced energy. And it’s a certainty that he was in a position to take pleasure in his flight sans smoke within the cabin and the airport.
The hazard of second hand smoke on the general public well being is why airways legally “mandate” that passengers chorus from lighting up precisely like they need to mandate that each one passengers put on masks and present a report of being vaccinated towards COVID-19 previous to boarding.
Proper now 93% of COVID infections are from the “Delta variant’ ravaging Cruz’s dwelling state of Texas. And there may be proof “that even exterior publicity to the highly-infectious delta variant by vaccinated folks may cause them to contract COVID-19.” Nonetheless, Cruz opposes any and each effort to mitigate the unfold of COVID. He mentioned:
“My view is we shouldn’t have any COVID mandates. What does that imply? Meaning no masks mandates, no vaccine mandates, which means no vaccine passports. We shouldn’t step right into a regime the place the federal government says, ‘present us your papers’ if you wish to do the essential actions of life.”
How silly is Ted Cruz? There have been vaccine mandates in America since Common George Washington led Individuals into battle towards the English throughout the Revolutionary Conflict. And each department of the Armed Companies inoculates new recruits as a matter in fact, and inoculates them once more relying on what a part of the world they’re deployed. And it’s nearly sure that regardless of the place Cruz’s kids attend faculty, they had been required to be vaccinated towards a slew of illnesses; it’s common observe in each state of the Union, together with Texas.
Texas, together with the opposite state run by evil Republicans, Florida account for one-third of recent COVID-19 instances ravaging the nation and there’s a logical rationalization; persons are not getting vaccinated and flout they concept of sporting a masks to guard themselves, their households and their communities. And each time Cruz runs his silly mouth he perpetuates the idea that vaccines and masks are silly concepts. He did say, as if he has a modicum of intelligence, that:
“If any person doesn’t take the vaccine, they pose comparatively little menace to me, they pose comparatively little menace to somebody who has chosen to take the vaccine.”
Because the CDC has mentioned advert nauseam to get the message by way of to silly morons like Cruz and his base:
“Even vaccinated people can spread COVID-19.” It’s exactly why CDC steering “recommends masks for each the vaccinated and unvaccinated in high-transmission areas.”
It isn’t clear simply how silly Cruz actually is, however based mostly on his argument for why Individuals ought to reject vaccines and oppose masks mandates he’s a class-A dummy. Nevertheless, as famous above, when silly folks pose a transparent and current hazard to the general public at giant, they need to be ostracized mercilessly. In Ted Cruz’s case, he needs to be sure and gagged within the curiosity of public well being and to protect a few of his silly followers’ lives.
