Why is it such an unpopular opinion to say COVID was extremely politicized and used by Democrats and Republicans alike to pander to their voters?
I get downvoted every time I make a remark even remotely similar to this even though it’s the truth. Both parties have used COVID to control and pander to their voters and it’s disgusting that so many people can’t see that.
I’m also tired of both parties being selective of when they accept or reject science. The CDC released a report where it showed there was a 0.5% reduction in COVID cases due to masks and then proceeded to recommend wearing two.
Nancy at Walmart with a “condition” spitting on an employee asking them to leave pisses me off as much as Burt, the double masker with a plastic face shield equipped while driving alone in his Prius. To be clear, I hate everybody.
I don’t see how saying COVID was politicized makes me anti-science or a COVID denier. I’m just saying that if we let a doctor run the country, we would have been self quarantining for every flu season. The preventive measures did not offset the economic impacts in the slightest. There’s no data to show otherwise, just politicized news reports.
I’ve said from the beginning, make recommendations but let people do whatever they want. No reason Walmart and Target can be deemed essential, but a small business isn’t.
