At some point, if vaccination rates climb in Texas and Florida and other states where the Delta variant of COVID-19 has been allowed to freely lung-fuck the residents, I’d almost expect the governors of those states who refused to do jackshit to mitigate the virus to say, “See? It took a few thousand more deaths, but now people are making the personal choice to get vaccinated. Government didn’t force them to. Reverse psychology in action.”
Of course, they aren’t that crafty. What we have are ideological pig fuckers who are getting high on the power they have over the lives and deaths of the people in their states. They see defiance of rational actions to slow the spread of the virus as some kind of mighty stand for freedom and rights and the economy when, really, they’re just accomplices to the murder and maiming that Covid is doing.
