    The anti-masking, anti-vaxxing, anti-shutdown, anti-lockdown, anti-quarantine, policies of Florida's ignorant selfish belligerent far-right Governor have brought about exactly what every person with half a brain knew would happen. More sickness, more death, and all MoRon DeathSantis is doing is signing more orders banning mitigation efforts and spending his days going out on photo ops where he talks about how 'patriotic' and 'Christian' Florida's super-spreading infestation is.

    The Republican party must purge itself of the anti-masker anti-vaxxcer 'the big lie' cancer festering within its ranks and if it wont then America has to purge itself of the Republican party.

    We’re being told even vaccinated people can get the virus. Plus Florida is a vacation spot and a state that New Yorkers are heading to as they leave that state. The rise in cases could be due to Florida’s own popularity and vaccinated people catching the virus because they believed the vaccine was a cure all.

    We don't need New York's contributions anymore we have the nation's (possibly the world's) largest supply of COVID here in our own state. Florida has been encouraging super-spreading since last Christmas. From CPAC, to the Super Bowl, to Bitcoin 2021, to the Lightning 'watch parties', to Disney and Busch Gardens, to Rolling Loud and dozens of other music festivals, to the packed sports arenas, packed beaches, packed fairs, and other nameless events. On top of that nearly every form of transmission mitigation is not only banned by our incompetent Godless heathen of a Governor but the doing-so has encouraged half our population to become willing soldiers in a Death Army that refuses to wear masks, refuses to get vaccinated, and is set on seeing every Floridian infected. This state has been on a mission to become the COVID capital of the world and we are succeeding. Its all us, its not outsiders anymore, its 100% us.

    You’re a reasonable person, so here’s something to consider. One or two chinamen walked out of a lab and infected the entire planet. On top of that, we’re being told vaccinated people can still catch and transmit the virus. Even more, they’re telling us that at least 50% of the population had the virus and didn’t know it. So it’s inevitable everyone on the planet will eventually catch the virus. When my wife and family tested positive I didn’t even try to avoid it because I admitted to myself it was only a matter of time until I got it, either through them or some time in the future. In a strange way, the people who catch the virus and survive with little or no symptoms are better off than not catching the virus and fearing what would happen when they eventually do catch it.

    Yes. It’s not if you catch the virus, but you can catch it again, and again, and again. There’s seems to be no way to avoid the virus China spread throughout the world. So the left wants to use it to their advantage and it’s only a matter of time before they tax it.

    Lies and more lies. Desantis isn’t antivax or anti mask. He just isn’t mandating and forcing it. And being anti shutdown is a good thing. Look at the pure destruction extended shutdowns have had on CA and NY.

    And if you think other states aren’t going to follow FL with rising cases, you’re not looking at the data. FL is just ahead of the curve. Other states will catch up soon, except our economy won’t suffer like theirs thank god. You check out NYC lately? You can’t go a block without abandoned shops, decay and blight everywhere. Who do you think is moving into them anytime soon? And the longer they remain empty the more they crumble. People are leaving NY and CA in droves, many fleeing to FL.

    Please cite any lies he is stating below here? Quote him telling anyone they should NOT get a vaccine?From the beginning he’s always urged those to get the vaccine who are in most danger and the rest can decide for themselves. And he is vaccinated as well which tosses your completely ignorant antivax BS in the toilet. Get a grip.

    When you threaten to defund schools that require students to wear masks, you're anti-mask. When you threaten counties and cities with legal action if they institute their own mask mandates, you're anti-mask. When you appear time and time again in crowded rooms with your maskless entourage, you're anti-mask. When you take meetings with representatives from the states largest employers/tourism spots and then they all collaboratively release statements that they wont require customers to be masked, you're anti-mask. When in the middle of a massive outbreak you rescind public health emergency declarations that empower counties to deploy mitigation strategies included those involving masks, you're anti-mask.

    When you ban the use of vaccine passports, you're anti-vax. When you forbid the use of federally authorized funds to incentivize vaccinations, you're anti-vax. When you pay lip service to the concept of vaccinations then kowtow to the wishes of your anti-vaxxer base after they call you a sellout, you're anti-vax.

    I'm not willing to give up and let China win. They want our citizens, and the citizens of other western nations, as weak and as helpless as their own people are. I'm also not willing to give up and let Americans die if I can help save some of them by something as simple as wearing a mask. I'm also willing to give up and let the GOP go down in flames over the mother of all strategic blunders without sounding off to as many people as I can what the consequences will be.

    There's so many angles at work here and in none of them is the outcome of just letting COVID run rampant good for America or Americans. We gotta fight this.

    I don’t think us little people have any chance of fighting it. The opinion of the so called experts has been contradictory, all over the place and could change at any moment. Plus we’re still taking advice about the China virus from China which makes no sense when you look at their prior lies and current attempts to cover up their culpability in all of this. IMO the only way mankind survives this is the naturally immune pass on their immunity or we develop a concrete vaccine. But no matter what happens, China needs to pay and pay dearly, and to do that big tech, the NBA, Nike, and others will just have to take the hit to their bottom line.

    Well we're already in a bit of a trade and currency war with China at the moment. No coverage.

    I just can't the falsehoods and censorship. For months they tell people that Vaccinated Patients can't infect people with Covid-19, then they can't infect other vaccinated people, and then they can't die despite the fact that the UK keeps coming out with reports indicating that 60% of vaccinated people were infected. Weeks later, it's 87 percent. So the CDC grabs a new study that has been rejected in peer review to justify new mask mandates on the vaccinated.

    It's nonstop lying. And you know the words Democrats use to lie to people cause they do it so often.

    If so then hospitalizations would be low. They aren’t.

    Yes, the delta variant Biden let into the country is evil, he did nothing to stop it, it’s on him and he has blood on his hands.

    Hey, did that sound like something the DNC would tell the MSM a year ago?

    What are they using for a test now that the PCR's have been confirmed to be wildly inaccurate?

    Uuummm. That antivax base is pissed at him just like crazy Leftists. So whoops. Wrong again. Your problem is you think not forcing something means you’re against it. WRONG!!! He hasn’t done a single thing to prevent ANYONE from getting the vaccine. It’s as easy as pie to get one in FL. Just walk into Publix or Walgreens or govt locations. FREE, Bam done. He’s prevented wasteful overspending which is a good thing. He hasn’t destroyed the economy and forever destroyed lives like blue governors have.
    Also a good thing. Lockdowns have destroyed far more lives than Covid as evidenced from the difference in economic destruction between FL and CA or NY. The extended lockdowns certainly didn’t save a significant number of lives but it sure did unrecoverable destruction. He hasn’t LIED and told people that Covid is equally dangerous to EVERYONE, which it isn’t. He simply let people decide on their own. Damn, what a dick. Freedom to choose. If only we locked people in their homes like China. You should move there and be happy and safe. You certainly prefer totalitarian communism contrary to your song and dance about China.

    When cases in the NE and CA hit FL levels, hope you’ll be consistent. But you of course won’t. You’ll make excuses like always.

    They proportion of vaccinated among hospitalized patients is starting to increase in the UK the same way it did with infections. The government walked back statements where they said 60% were infected. There was also a study that claimed most deaths were now among vaccinated, but who knows.
    https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/u...vid-hospitalizations-are-of-the-unvaccinated/

    Also, Texas and California pulled back their cases and deaths today. They were showing over 10,000 in both states.

    Every soldier needs a pair of boots and a rifle, or in this case a vaccine and a mask. Without them we'll lose. DeathSantis is treating Florida like his own personal Battle of Stalingrad; sending wave after wave of unarmed ill-equipped fodder to suffer for his ego and his ideology.

    When mandates return, I wonder what will happen when vaccinated Republicans realise it's because of the unvaccinated.

    Yes, the vaccinated can get it and can spread it. The latest data from the Delta variation is demonstrating that. However, the vaccinated have much milder symptoms and are much less likely to die.

    The reason you are being asked to wear a mask if you are vaccinated is to protect the health of the unvaccinated.

    He's clearly a maniac. If Florida follows India's pattern he'll have to clamp down and hard, eventually.

    There's no censorship. They ( we all) are adjusting as the situation changes and the Delta variant is quite different. It spreads much more easily and you can be a carrier even if you are vaccinated.

    One thing is absolutely unequivocal and undeniable. You are far far less likely to die if you are fully vaccinated than if you're unvaccinated.
