Seriously. Do you?! I can’t believe that virtually everyone except for a handful at The Federalist (eg Sean Davis, Twitter here) is either completely terrified as per the media’s prescription, or too cowardly to call the terrorism and fear mongering out. Just unbelievable. Everyone, even normally reliable media watchdogs, are either lined up to virtue signal their dime-store medical expertise — or they’re cowering in the corner too afraid to utter even a shred of skepticism for the hysteria around what may be yet another in a long line of relatively unremarkable new viral strains; COVID-19.
And if you listen closely enough for long enough then eventually you’ll hear these circle jerking idiots all nod in agreement that what makes the virus soooooo scary is that the vast majority of people who get it <checks notes> won’t even know they have it because there will literally be no symptoms.
I had written the other day that when it’s all over and it doesn’t net even a tiny fraction of the terror and death and destruction that the media promised it would, the media would take credit for its dilution instead of being held accountable for its terror-inducing promotion.
Today I look around and see literally the entire conservative and Trump supporting right lining up to do the same damn thing.
What an absolute disgrace.
“Yeah but it might kill a persistently shrinking fraction of elderly and immunocompromised people than the standard flu strain does!!!!1!”
Shaddup. You’re inciting social and economic havoc all predicated on initially garbage numbers that get less and less dire as they become more and more informed.
“Yeah but your hero Trump is also taking it seriously!!!!1!”
He has to at this point. Because the media ensnared literally every one of you and now it’s a race to the bottom for virtue signaling the seriousness of a response to it.
The rest of us don’t. And just like the professionals amid Conservative, Inc. completely missed the public’s ability to nominate and then elect Trump, they’re missing our ability now to weave through this b.s. while simultaneously being cautious and also skeptical of the enormous devastation that allegedly awaits us.
They think we’re idiots. They, just like every well-intended but wildly wrong leftist, think they’re helping.
