Death To Those Who Insult The Virus!

PSYCHOLOGICALLY disturbed journalists and social media controllers have anthropomorphised coronavirus as an ally (of theirs) who commands respect and must never be mocked. You could almost liken this to the left’s love for Ho Chi Minh 50 years ago or for Barack Obama more recently. At least they were human. Coronavirus is now the leader they rely on to get Trump and win the November election.

Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!”

– Scourge of pansy coronavirus, Donald Trump

 
Rubin is a senior columnist for the Washington Post. She wants one of the most storied, prestigious hospitals in the world to be shut down because President Donald Trump walked out of there alive and well. As per the thesis I proposed here on Sunday, this cannot be seen as normal behaviour. This is mental illness.

    It becomes increasingly obvious that TDS bring on early dementia. I can find no other explanation for these poor demented souls. If I could muster the interest in them I probably would feel sorry for them but I can’t be bothered. I don’t think in self respecting mental institution would take them either.

    Mont, donuts aside, have you considered the prospect of a Trump win… a big Trump win… in November? Have you contemplated how you will respond, hopefully within the sphere of sanity, maintaining some semblance of dignity (if that’s at all possible in your case)? Or, for the lack of regard, will you end up on another multi-year crying/whining binge?

  22. Rex Anger

    What roll did Putin have in his recovery?

    Well, the staff at Walter Reed did Putin a great deal of effort and care. The President himself Putin some rest, and put out a few triggering tweets. And after Biden his time at the request of his doctors “Kennedy I go out, please?” “No! Now go Washington your face. Then we will Grant you leave.”), he got the Hillary out of there! 😉

  23. Arky

    The attack on the hospital by the mob is now a standard tactic.
    It’s calculated to pressure individuals into self censorship.
    Doesn’t matter if it works on the doctors at that hospital, it’s that everyone sees it and it might make the next individual or organisation make a mis-step or feel pressured into not dealing with a conservative figure.
    They are NOT insane. They are malicious and calculated and willing to use anything and anybody to reach their aims.
    If they win, the likes of Monty will be the next crop of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyns, documenting how the cause they served turned on them and brought all of us down into a hell on Earth.
    Scratch that, the fucker is too stupid for that.

    MuNt I only wish that you go on living. But I’m a vicious individual.

  26. Let’s fact check Dettol Donny’s tweet –

    Flu season is coming up!

    Partly true. It’s usually starts in December in the USA.

    Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu.

    COVID-19 causes more severe disease than seasonal influenza.
    While many people globally have built up immunity to seasonal flu strains, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity. That means more people are susceptible to infection, and some will suffer severe disease.

    Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.

    So his message that the virus is the same as the flu is simply hogwash. His message could be construed to mean that because people die from the seasonal flu, Covid 19 can be ignored, even though it has three times the fatality rate, and right now there is no vaccine. Logic is not Dettol Donny’s strong point.

    Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!”

    The “far less lethal” reference is simply a lie. What he’s really saying is “You” – not “we” need to learn to die with it”, as over 200000 of his fellow citizens (who lack access to Walter Reid and expensive experimental treatments) have already done. “Learning to live with it” means changing behaviour, but the deadshits in the USA who are spreading it believe that if ignored, it will go away. Somebody should also ask what he means by “in most populations”. Is he referring to these people?

    -Income is linked to COVID-19 risk factors: poorer people are less likely to be able to socially distance or telework. However, higher-income areas tend to have more in-person interactions. This column disentangles the socioeconomic influences on COVID-19 behaviour and outcomes across the 3,000 counties of the US. Counties with higher overall income inequality tend to have higher infection rates. A higher population share of Black Americans and Hispanics is associated with higher infection rates. These effects do not fade over time from the first infection.

    And, of course, by removing Affordable Care, any real opportunity these people have of effective treatment is further jeopardized.
    Dettol Donny has a weakness for fantasy and those lemmings who follow him fall for it every time, even if it kills them.
    Every time Dettol Donny tweets, my ICD* arcs up.

    Twitter is also applying its ICD – way past time…

    Look at the bright side.
    You guys cured death by old age merely by reclassifying it, and Trump proves your Commo virus, just like communism, is all piss and wind.

    Because you missed the basic year three stuff, I’ll repeat the rule –
    “Silent E makes the vowel say its name.” … In each example, Silent E changes the short vowel into a long vowel (in other words, the vowel says its name). Dozens of popular phonics programs teach this, and it is one of the most common reading and spelling “rules” taught to beginning learners.

    Leigh Lowe at 10.53am nailed it. Not only did progressives wish DJT dead, at the very least they wished him under lock and key in hospital.

    FWIW, I had a brush with something like WuFlu last month. A day+ half in bed, lots of drinking water, did not go for tests as I was quite able to act responsibly, and none of the family had anything similar.

    It is springtime in eastern Australia, wattle and bottlebrush and crops have been in bloom for more than a month, westerly winds have been blowing, and I get hayfever every year at this time.

    While many people globally have built up immunity to seasonal flu strains, COVID-19 is a new virus to which no one has immunity.

    Except those who had it and recovered and have not actually caught it since, right Jack Hunt? Oh wait! That’s a capitalist imperialist running dog Western lie and plot to deny the true lethality of the disease, which is so insidious and deadly most people need to have a test to know it is even Tuesday…

    Learning to live with it” means changing behaviour, but the deadshits in the USA who are spreading it believe that if ignored, it will go away. Somebody should also ask what he means by “in most populations”.

    Looking at this comment, and considering the demographic nature of the biggest spreaders, particularly in Melbourne, we can leap the same sharks to conclufe that Jack Hunt passionately hates anyone whose skin (and psyche) is not as lilywhite as his.

    Now I begin to understand why leftwits find this behaviour so addictive- Nobody is as pure as meeeeeeeee…

    And, of course, by removing Affordable Care, any real opportunity these people have of effective treatment is further jeopardized.

    Wot, beyond what Obamacare’s skyrocketing insurance premiums and shambolic administration had already denied to most lower-income Americans, Jack Hunt? At least it isn’t the NHS, a system so lethal people are blackmailed into applauding it…

    6 Oct: World Economic Forum: WHO: Just 10% of the world has caught COVID-19 and things are about to get ‘difficult’
    This article is published in collaboration with Reuters; Emma Farge, Reuters Geneva and Stephanie Nebehay
    Mike Ryan, the WHO’s top emergency expert, was addressing the agency’s Executive Board, where the United States made a thinly veiled swipe at China for what it called a “failure” to provide accurate and timely information on the outbreak.

    But Zhang Yang of China’s National Health Commission, said: “China has always been transparent and responsible to fulfil our international obligations.” China maintained close contacts with all levels of the U.N. health agency, she added…

    The WHO has submitted a list of experts to take part in an international mission to China to investigate the origin, for consideration by Chinese authorities, Ryan said, without giving details.
    U.S. assistant health secretary Brett Giroir said that it was critical that WHO’s 194 member states receive “regular and timely updates, including the terms of reference for this panel or for any field missions, so that we can all engage with the process and be confident in the outcomes”.
    Germany, speaking for the EU, said the expert mission should be deployed soon, with Australia also supporting a swift investigation.

    Meanwhile, Alexandra Dronova, Russia’s deputy health minister, called for an evaluation of the legal and financial repercussions of the Trump administration announcing the U.S. withdrawal from the WHO next July…

    remember CNN-contributing Dr. James P. Phillips, the “visiting”, “attending”, or just plain “Doctor” at Walter Reed Hospital, who had 24 hours of FakeNewsMSM fame worldwide a couple of days ago with his smartass comments, including “this is insanity”, regarding President Trump doing a drive-by of supporters outside the hospital ?

    where are the FakeNewsMSM now, when it has been revealed –

    5 Oct: ABC Australia; Supporters cheer on Donald Trump motorcade as Walter Reed doctor blasts COVID-19 ‘insanity’
    Posted Yesterday at 12:32pm, updated 18 hours ago
    by AP/Reuters
    Key points:
    Walter Reed physician Dr James P Phillips said those with Mr Trump on the “completely unnecessary presidential ‘drive-by’” will now have to be quarantined

    ABC Washington correspondent David Lipson described the scenes as “extraordinary”…
    “Inside that car, his security detail and the driver, of course, all the windows closed, they were all wearing masks, but clearly quite a risk was taken so the President could meet and thank his fans even if it was from inside a car…

    But a physician at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center has branded the US President’s decision to visit “patriots” outside the hospital via motorcade as “unnecessary” and endangering the lives of his Secret Service agents…
    “This is insanity,” tweeted Dr James P Phillips, an attending physician at the hospital…
    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-10-05/reactions-to-trumps-covid-19-motorcade-visit/12731654

    will CNN drop the good “Doctor”? will ABC inform their audience they mis-labelled him?

    heard ABC and BBC radio news bulletins yesterday re Trump back at WH. both gave the “This is insanity” quote another run, but simply stated a “Doctor” criticised Trump – no name, no hospital mentioned.

    Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected.

    Maybe stop confusing CFR with IFR when you are attempting to “fact check” other people?

    “Reported cases” is not the same thing as “those infected”.

    I’m just not sure if Numbers is simply being extraordinarily incompetent with this remark, or intentionally lying to mislead, given he has a well-deserved reputation on this blog for both.

    “And, of course, by removing Affordable Care, any real opportunity these people have of effective treatment is further jeopardized.”

    You mean the circa 115,000 (maximum enrollments) – Sleezy Joe has confused his thousands and millions AGAIN. Not 100 million Joe, just 100 thousand. Still people, still sick, still need assistance, but hardly unaffordable to Gov to wear the cost directly – unless YOU get in Joe, in which case bye-bye good jobs and hello many more who can’t afford the insurance. Is that your plan, Joe? To say “100 million” and then impose your socialist agenda to increase the numbers 1000 fold? Yeah, good job. Thanks so much. Very helpful – NOT.

    Here’s an idea for you Joe – learn to code for when you and your mob get dumped bigly by US voters. Or maybe you can run, you know, the lady’s department at the local Walmart, or something. Actually, no – just get some of the millions you bribed other countries to give to your son in a “pay to play” arrangement. Yeah, being a sponge is just so comfortable for you, isn’t it?

    The BBC OS show (Ms McGovern presiding) sought out some people who had “lost close relatives” to get them to refute Trump’s “it’s not that bad” viewpoint.
    One lady said she’d lost her wonderful grandfather, and proceeded to say how wonderful he was rather than how bad either the virus or Trump was. In her statement was this clue: the grandfather had been married to granny for 63 years.

    Yeah – BLM founder said on record “I am a trained Marxist”.
    Gotta say “Black” (with a capital letter!) and “white” (all lower case).

    Antifa says “You are a racist because of your skin colour, and if you deny it, that makes you even more racist!”.

    Anti-facist? Well, anti as in “reverse”, not anti as in “opposed to”. But that’s the part you’re not supposed to say out loud, OK, so don’t even mention it to Biden unless he has his earpiece in!

    Hopefully, we follow DJT’s example and make “critical race theory” – which segregates “retraining” by race and assigns hateful qualities based on “immutable characteristics” of the individual – illegal for Gov related entities.

    Not at Tim Blair’s blog…because Tim does quite a bit of moderating himself. I think he knows the censors are out of control so he pops in and “accepts” comments.

    Been saying that for weeks, that Andrews anthropomorphises the ”wicked enemy” that is ”silent” and ”evil” and ”sneaky”. Like the virus had morals and is out to personally defeat Andrews. Of couse it’s nothing more than an appeal to emotionalism over reason.

    Because you missed the basic year three stuff, I’ll repeat the rule –
    “Silent E makes the vowel say its name.” … In each example, Silent E changes the short vowel into a long vowel (in other words, the vowel says its name). Dozens of popular phonics programs teach this, and it is one of the most common reading and spelling “rules” taught to beginning learners.

    Absolutely true, if somewhat asininely written.

    But — “roll” and “role”, the words in question, are homophone homonyms (as distinct from homograph homonyms) and as such the final “e” plays no part in the pronunciation of the first vowel in “role”.

    Had you used an example such as “hat” — “hate” or “lop” — “lope”, your point may have had some relevance.

    Game, set and match, I should think, Bruce in W.A.

  67. At the most recent Biden event (open air) those attending in order of numbers from lowest to highest were..

    * Biden supporters (unknown if paid or unpaid)
    * Journalists
    * Biden staff and security
    * Trump supporters greeting Biden at event entry

    People like Monty have no idea what’s coming on Nov3.
    The shock may end up being too much for some.
