The Conservative Political Action Committee conference in Dallas this weekend has been full of the usual moments from the Republican Party’s most outrageous figures trying to be the most performatively provocative. Notable, however, has been the drumbeat of anti-vaccine rhetoric that has pervaded CPAC’s annual gathering—even as the Delta variant of COVID-19 continues to build steam across unvaccinated parts of the country.On Sunday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a top federal official leading the pandemic response, called the anti-vaccine politics on display “horrifying.” Fauci was reacting to a talk in which anti-vaxxer Alex Berenson was roundly cheered by a CPAC audience for saying the US government had failed to “sucker” 90 percent of Americans into getting vaccinated.“It’s horrifying, I mean, the cheering about someone saying that it’s a good thing for people to not try and save their lives,” Fauci told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “If you just unpack that for a second… it’s almost frightening to say ‘Guess what? We don’t want you to do something to save your life! Yay!’ I just don’t get that and I don’t think anybody who is thinking clearly can get that.”COVID-19 skepticism—and then vaccine skepticism—has been a regular part of conservative populism since the pandemic started, but the rhetoric on display at CPAC has underscored a growing dissonance. On the one hand, vaccines have shown much success in halting the spread and worst medical outcomes from the virus, with parts of the country with high vaccination rates seeing life returning to normal. On the other hand, the Delta variant is driving case numbers higher and higher in areas where vaccination rates are low. In Arkansas, Saturday brought a third straight day of new cases topping 1,000—higher than infection levels seen a year ago when so much less was known about COVID-19 and no vaccines were available. https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2021/07/fauci-cpac-covid-vaccines-boebert-cawthorn/
The state’s own Republican governor is pleading with residents to get vaccinated.Others carrying the anti-vaccine torch at CPAC included Colorado congresswoman Lauren Boebert, who mocked Biden’s efforts to get more people vaccinated and provide economic relief to states where the economy is still struggling to restart after pandemic-related shutdowns. “We’re here to tell the government we don’t want your benefits, we don’t want your welfare,” Boebert declared, strutting across a stage as she spoke. “Don’t come knocking on my door with your Fauci ‘ouchy’—you leave us the hell alone.”Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina went further in an interview onstage Friday night, pushing the idea that Biden’s goal to vaccinate more Americans, going house-to-house if necessary, was terrifying government overreach. He suggested that if the federal government cultivated the ability to go door-to-door for vaccinations that would create the kind of infrastructure that could “take your Bibles” (apparently overlooking that the U.S. Postal Service, the Census Bureau and other federal agencies already have the ability to go door-to-door but don’t confiscate Bibles.)Meanwhile, in Springfield, Mo., where 58 percent of voters backed Trump, local health officials said doctors were “exhausted and overwhelmed” as they faced the worst COVID numbers in sixteen months. Mid-week, one hospital in the area, which has a vaccination rate of around 35 percent, ran out of ventilators after seeing the number of hospitalized patients rise from 10 to 128 over the last six weeks. Although eventually resupplied, the hospital was still forced to shuttle patients to other facilities because they lacked the staff to care for them.

>>887332>Republicans openly celebrate the deaths of 600,000 Americans who were killed by the Trump VirusAny credible source on that? Sounds like a typical leftard conspiracy theory to me. And what exactly is a "Trump virus"? Something G5 nanobots?
>>887358It's the anime pedo. Don't waste your time with this guy. OP is a fag.
>>887358>>887369>>887371Nice same fag
>>887332600,000? Weren't you posting a few weeks ago that it was over a million?
>>887332Typical cunstservative behavior
>>887358Did you read the article? They're against vaccinations, meaning they're for the Trump Virus killing Americans.
>>887332>Trump VirusThat was spread through blm rallies and democrats refusing to close the borderThe death count is also high from democrat governors shoving sick patients into retirement homesBut yeah "trump virus"
New conspiracy of the day by /news/ resident Pedophile.
>>887332>Trumpers reduced to screeching "pedo" whenever someone posts something pointing out how retarded trumpers are
>>887457WRONG.Don't even try to spread that bullshit, you niggerfaggot. The Trump Virus was spread because idiots like you refused to wear a mask, socially distance, or get vaccinated. I live in Massachusetts, and pretty much everyone is vaccinated here. And guess what? We're fine, we don't have to wear masks or any of that shit and we're not having outbreaks with whatever variant, either.You fucking clown. Kek.
>>887457virus spreads little outdoors>must blame the blacks anywayTrump controlled border opening/closing>must blame democrats>Nursing homesWe have been over this anon. Patients returned from nursing homes were no longer contagious.>b-b-but my heroYeah trump kinda sucked at the whole being president thing.
>>887519Use to think the Walking Dead was fiction, not based on Democrat incompetence. The only reason the virus spread so badly in the US is because the left chose to politicised it, where some human rejects believed cosplaying in black and dancing in the streets burning property under a BLM banner gave them immunity from consequences...just like how the Walking Dead virus spread in the TV series. Only Americans are dumb enough to emulate fiction like this, because their reality is what the is a mainstream media narrative, not reality they need only look outside their window to see. The Left does not look out the window for evidence, they believe the narrative and will die by it, happily, and will slander and resort to insults to anyone who tells them otherwise. Enjoy your TV reality, it was always preventable if idiots like you hadn't put a political slogan on a viral outbreak.
>>887369this guy is closet pedoanime with big tits triggers himhe likes this, i've seen him in there drooling>>>/b/858875428
>>887535Dump politicized it first, whether you care to believe that or not.
>>887543>>887369The only tirggered are /pol/ppets.Post more loli
>>887530And? Massachusetts isn't exclusively fucking partisan, we know good Republicans when we see them.I know that's shocking to you because you seethe and screech with rage every time someone even starts to mention the word Democrat.Honestly, way to out yourself as another fucking clown, kek. As if having a Republican governor would make me rage. Try again, sweaty.
>>887535This is exactly what a dumbshit, unhinged retard living in his doomer fantasy world sounds like.Your words mean nothing, you incomprehensibly dumb fucking faggot; everything you just said is a lie and a LARP. Dismissed.
>>887535LMAO. Is this copypasta? This is fucking hilarious. This is what happens when you're a completely retarded Ivan or Chang poster and you're so goddamn dumb you literally try and equate COVID to the Walking Dead tv series.Honestly this is brilliantly retarded, Anon. You have deftly proven how utterly fucking stupid you are in one fell swoop, you ignorant, foreign, illiterate piece of shit.You hate Americans because you aren't American. Now get on your knees, you destitute, degenerate poor little yellow/brown/nigger cocksucker, and get back to sucking America's cock like the good little boy you've always been.
>>887535>The fascist right reject the vaccine and cheer when people are dying in the streets>But it's the left to blame for it all!Now this is gaslighting
>>887530i wish, moved to the whitest town in boston, all support the Don
>>887646Yea we fackin do khed
>>887421>Did you read the article?You're supposed to put the punchline at the end of the joke. You'll generate stronger audience laughter with a surprise twist after getting them to invest in your narrative.
>>887535>Spot the Kremlin disinfobot in the thread.Get a refund on your ESL, Sergei. Your inability to English is on parade.
>>887332>s-stop laughing at our meme virus
>>887587>we know good Republicans when we see themLike Mitt Romney? lol
>>887519>The Trump Virus was spread because idiots like you refused to wear a mask, socially distance, or get vaccinated.Remember when Fauci advised against wearing a mask?
>>887603600,000 deaths is a reality, the large majority of which occurred in Blue states before it spread with Democrats fleeing their decrpit holes. Coincidentally, there were a lot of 'peaceful protests' burning buildings and people going on around the country. The Left ARE the Walking Dead, you're the zombies who shuffle through sanity, chanting with mindless hatred for something your puny minds can't even begin to comprehend, spewing slurs and insults like a disease because your necrotic shrunken brains can't function in the real world. You rioted under the narrative of 'Peaceful Protest' and the political agenda of the Left, your country had 600,000 dead...no other country had this problem, just yours. Deal.
>>887685So you didn't read the article, gotcja
>>887791You spread nothing but lies, faggot.You lost the election. Fucking get over it and deal with it already, you pathetically sore loser.
>>887873Hah. Chang laughs at dumb Americunt. Laughs too too much. Voted for Biden, yes. You too stoopid Democrat. Hah.I'm not an American, dipstick, keep the insults flowing, hope it keeps you warm while your country disappears into shit hole of leftist socialism.
Dont hear anyone crying about mcdonalds making people fat lol 500000 a year die from heart disease. Enjoy trump living rent free in your head for the rest of your life XD.
>>887963Now THIS is a false analogy.
>>888046The polls say otherwise.
>>888046>trump won the most votes of any loser in historyAn accomplishment of sorts.
>>888069my pole says otherwise
>>888069FAKE POLLS. Democrats won fair and square. Get over it already.
>>888085I think you meant to comment to this post>>888046
>>888046Now THIS is cope
>>887332/pol/ tried to assure me in 2016 that an anti vaxxer movement wouldn't come from their camp.
>>888090I misread who you replied to, I thought you were citing some fake Trump polls or some shit; they truly have manufactured too many conspiracies to follow
Is it tho? Year after year the same amount human waste dies and yet you people let people you love enter my 300 life without saying a word. But skawk like a crow when people dont take a vaccine.
only the unvaccinated are dying of it now. at this point, fuck em. they are literally killing their own nowcaptcha DEDRDdamn, captcha. that's dark.
>>888114You're sadly not wrong.
>>888100/pol/ is just a bunch of shills for the Russians, being anti-vax hurts America, so the Russians are for it, thus /pol/ is for it.
>>888220Russia doesn't support racism like America does.Actually sounds pretty comfy over there
>>888220>/pol/ is just a bunch of shills for the Russians, being anti-vax hurts America, so the Russians are for it, thus /pol/ is for it./pol/ is Americans. The anti-vax movement is American. Trump is American. His voters are American. All this is American, all this is your own doing. Stop blaming your idiocy on foreigners, you fascist mouth breather. Start taking responsibility for once in your life. You alone are responsible. Nobody else.
>>887332It's a shame, really.I loved that anime.But you go and defile it with your bullshit again.Why do you commit sins against humanity?
>>888224Then leave, retard
>>888141>only the unvaccinated are dying of it now.That's not the case with the delta variant.
>>888234Nice try /pol/ppet we all know you're a useful idiot of the Russians.How does it feel that were you were totally irrelevant during the 2020 election because the Russians weren't there to spoonfeed you content to force?
>>888247>still rehashing the Russian meme.That ship has sailed. And besides there are dozens of other interest groups that are manipulating content the internet.
>>888243That's not very white nationalist of you. You should be preserving Anglo American culture and watch looney tunes and Peanuts or some shit
>>888254But I'm a Spic that loves subbing hentai in Español so only we can enjoy the plot!
>>887332You will never be a woman.
>>887421I am for anything that kills you.
>>888261You might change that stance once you figure out you'll never be with a woman.
>>888247If anything I woild argue that both Trump and Biden were pushed by Russians.
>>888453Only Trump conspired with the Russians, so your claim is dubious.
>>888246dude that is extremly the case, its confirmed that 99% of hospitalizations and deaths right now are from unvaccinated people
>>888623It's almost as if the fucking vaccines work?
>>888839Shocking all /pol/acks.
>>888865>Implying /pol/ppets care
>>888939>implying that anyone really gives a shit about some degenerate /pol/faggots
>>887533And you replaced him with someone even fucking worse, dude. You're not in a position to judge- Biden has made every issue you claim Trump exacerbated worse in every possible respect.Say hi to the refugees at the border for me sometime.
>>889030>oh no refugeesWhatever will we do?
>>889030What's worse than a traitor who wants to turn America into a fascist dictatorship, aka republicans?
>>889693>democrats aka republicansmeds. now.
>>889716No sweaty, it's not your time yet. You must wait.
>>887535I like how this was supposed to sound all serious and profound and it's just a bumbling stupid mess kek
>>889822I mean I stoped reading it after the Walking Dead bit.
>>889716Who the fuck even takes meds? You're a loser for using that vocabulary.
>>889716>Democrats are republicansLOL, nice try fascist. The only fascists are Republicans, did you already forget the republicans staging a failed coup?
>>890387>regurgitating random phrases I really hope you're a bot and not an actual human.
>>890388>RandomWay to prove English is your 2nd language Ivan.
>>890389random/ˈrandəm/made, done, or happening without method or conscious decision.The word is used correctly, bot.
>>890392But none of those phrases were random, you lose again Ivan.
Bumping this thread for the anti-anime bigot here.
>>889972>>890611Trannies. Trannies take meds. And because they're hellbent on converting as many people as they can to their mental illness cult, they frequently spam for others to take meds. It's pretty sad.
>>891751>Everything is about tranniesYou need help
can't wait for the midterm to roll around and republicans figure out OH SHIT WE KILLED A BUNCH OF OUR VOTERS IN SWING DISTRICTS. gosh, its almost like living voters are more valuable to your political party than dead ones.

>>894230>its almost like living voters are more valuable to your political party than dead ones.not for the democrat party
>>888623The delta variant is just starting to appear in the US.Also breakthrough cases aren't being reported, they're not even testing people who are vaccinated for covid.How you people still trust any official channel is mindboggling. >BLUE TEAM GOOD, RED TEAM BAD
>>894290>breakthrough cases aren't being reportedIn which alternate universe?
>>894292What incentive to people who are vaccinated have to get tested for a virus that is already asymptomatic in the vast majority of people who get it, anon?
>>894295I mean they may not ALL be reported but they are being reported. Just like how a lot of (red) states weren't / still aren't reporting covid cases.
>>887787That was when there was a shortage of PPE and we needed to conserve what there was for medical and essential workers plus infected numbers were a fraction of what they are now.Which you all know but you keep spouting the same death rhetoric. If it was wasn't for the idiot Magatards Covid would be dead in America. People are literally begging for vaccines in other countries while tens of millions of doses go wasted. Instead places like Alabama are going to have a new round of lockdowns with new variants mutating developing a strong possibility.This is quite literally a death cull.
>>894295The positive test criteria was lowered for vaccinated individuals to 28. Unvaccinated is 35.
>>894332>>894333He's talking about PCR cycles. a cycle count of 35 has an absurd false positive rate, a cycle count of 28 likely has a high false negative rate. If they're indeed using different cycle counts then they are deliberately biasing the results to get the numbers they want, e.g. suppressing positive cases in vaccinated individuals and exaggerating cases in non-vaccinated individuals. If this is true then it's criminal.FYI, a HUGE number of positive results over the course of the pandemic were false, because a cycle count of 35 was typical and far higher than what would normally be recommended. But you probably didn't hear about that from the media - in fact it's next to impossible to find any mainstream source reporting on cycle count...because that would require journalists to actually do their jobs instead of narrative building.
>>894338Cool. I don’t think that is accurate. The current PCR tests are being run through the same procedures for vax and non-vax.
>>894341It's accurate. There was a change made this year. https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/cdc-changes-rules-counting-breakthrough-cases/
>>894348>According to a statement on the CDC’s website, the agency said to help “maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance” it will stop reporting weekly COVID breakthrough infections unless they result in hospitalization or death.how orwellian
>>894348https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/childrens-health-defense/Yeah, sooooo probably not at all true.
>>894348>In April, the CDC issued new guidance to laboratories recommending reducing the RT-PCR CT value to 28 cycles — but only for those fully vaccinated individuals being tested for COVID.Jesus christ that's insane. The only thing this will do is make it look like cases are dropping for vaccinated individuals regardless of whether they actually are or not. What a fucking scam, these people have lost their minds.
>>894352https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/downloads/Information-for-laboratories-COVID-vaccine-breakthrough-case-investigation.pdfAll the reports link to a page that now redirects. So there is potential for fuckery here. Still, it's really fucking weird that you can't find cycle threshold guidance anywhere from the CDC.
>>894352>Besides promoting anti-vaccination propaganda the Children Health Defense has also promoted the debunked conspiracy that fluoride lowers the IQ in children. At this time there is not enough evidence to make that claim. Other conspiracies and/or pseudoscience promoted on this website include the dangers of 5G, and during the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic, the group accused the United States government of supporting research on a vaccine as part of a plan to increase revenues for the pharmaceutical industry.Ahhhhhh, That where the crazies are getting it from.
>>894281It's still about the UK, who still have their version of Trump killing off their country so your post is meaningless reddit spacer.
>>894338>But you probably didn't hear about that from the mediabecause its complicated shit and most people wont even tolerate sitting thru an explanation of how it is we're actually going to peacefully let the Taliban take over Afghanistan. Much less the dense biological science vocabulary. you have dipshits here who INSIST masks do nothing, while also insisting that doctors wear masks to show their support for Biden. stupidity is mandatory in this country. especially if you vote R.
>>894353>Jesus christ that's insane. It would be insane.>The only thing this will do is make it look like cases are dropping for vaccinated individuals regardless of whether they actually are or not.It would.>What a fucking scam, these people have lost their minds.It would be.Were it all not another lie conjured up by anti-vaxxers, who, as usual, can't stop being dishonest.>The viral story claims that “NOW, and only for fully vaccinated people, the CDC will only accept samples achieved from 28 cycles or fewer. That can only be a deliberate decision in order to decrease the number of ‘breakthrough infections’ being officially recorded.”>That’s not what the CDC has said about a cycle threshold of 28.>Instead, the CDC said samples submitted for genetic sequencing would need to be at that threshold. Scientists use sequencing to decode the genes of the virus to better understand factors such as its spread and evolution.https://www.factcheck.org/2021/05/scicheck-story-twists-facts-on-diagnosing-breakthrough-covid-19-cases/
