Open Thread | COVID UPDATE

I can’t say this enough.
Get vaccinated.
99 of every 100 people dying today from COVID
If you are 12 and up…


99 of every 100 deaths from COVID TODAY

They are dying FOR NOTHING😠😠

She broke down the numbers

Stop saying incompetence. It is deliberate malice.

There are brilliant Black doctors out here giving great COVID VACCINE knowledge and advice:

Others are more tolerant of the “vaccine hesitant” than me. It has been several billion shots given worldwide. Time for you to step up and GET THE SHOT!😠

At this point, anti-vaxx is anti-Black




Da phuq😠

    Apparently members Congressional Black Caucus are raving about their 50th anniversary event, hosted by yours truly, Vice President Harris, at the VP’s mansion. To no one’s surprise, the food was supposedly slamming! 🤤😋

    It’s so blatantly obvious that the Beltway Media REALLY resents Joe Biden for defeating Donald Trump. He stopped so many bags by denying Dolt 45 a second term and they are salty man.

    “the press shies away, nervous about offending conservatives by portraying them as mindless zombies being easily duped about a miraculously safe and effective vaccine

    Instead of calling them out, the press coddles them depicting them as “vaccine hesitant” and “vaccine skeptics”

    “Millions of conservative Americans are being brainwashed about the pandemic, and thousands are killing themselves in the process. Yet the media downplay the huge story, framing it simply as “vaccine hesitancy.””

    Let’s begin building vaccine confidence among parents so that we can see good uptake of this vaccine in children.

    The entire ‘ Border Crisis’ right now in Texas?

    The entire scenario just doesn’t smell right in any way, shape, or form. 

    Haiti is an ISLAND.


    I repeat – an ISLAND. 

    How do all these desperate poor people from an ISLAND, 

    get to Mexico, in order to get to the TEXAS border?

    Why aren’t they hovering off the coast of FLORIDA?

    And, I was told , over the weekend, that a lot of them came from Brazil.


    First, we had them from MEXICO.

    Now, we have poor, desperate Haitians going to BRAZIL.

    and, from BRAZIL, suddenly popping up in Mexico on the Texas Border. 

    STILL, nobody has made sense of this for me. Because the logistics don’t add up.

    Let us consider for a moment what one of Breitbart’s Big Thinkers is admitting
    1. Vaccines work
    2. Vax resistance is almost entirely partisan
    3. Unvaxed people are dying in large numbers

    He then gets from this to: THIS IS THE LEFT’S ENTIRE PLAN!

    Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) tweeted at 1:27 PM on Sun, Sep 19, 2021:
    Breitbart is running a piece that says – I am not kidding – that the left is mocking the unvaxed so they’ll dig in and never get vaxed and die and shift political power to the left.
    This is so weird on so many levels that I am tempted to dive in on it, Inception style.
