COVID wasn't ever a "liberal vs. conservatives" issue, it was a "conservatives vs. some imaginary enemy, and good sense" issue, and the conservatives MADE it that way. I will forever decry whoever (even if they're supposedly on my "side) people who claim that liberals are anyway at fault on this issue. Liberals wanted people (including those who hate them with a psychotic passion) to be safe and alive, conservatives committed slow, destructive suicide to gain imaginary points with the lying bullies that told them lies and made life worse for everyone!

There is a direct correlation with right leaning people and virus or vaccine denial. They can be nice people, but they're not smart people. In no other matter would they push back against the advice of professionals, but they chose to listen to talking heads that probably never took a CPR class, much less attended medical school. To hell with them. They can't die fast enough. We need to stop saving people, because this is a Frog and Scorpion scenario.

I think Fox News as the most watched cable news network has a large part to do with this. They never argue on the basis of dry economic ideas that their base won’t understand, they get old peoples’ heart racing with the adrenaline of hate and fear that makes them feel like they are actively involved, like they are warriors on a battlefield. Every day Fox is telling them that Dems “hate you and your way of life”. After 21/2 decades it has become an addiction, like smoking cigarettes or the jolt of coffee in the morning.
