The Federalist: Dying of COVID is good, actually

Jesus wept

MAGA truly is a death cult, though it’s rare for anyone on that side to admit it outright. Enter The Federalist, which today published a piece by its executive editor with the utterly un-ironic headline “For Christians, Dying From COVID (Or Anything Else) Is A Good Thing.”

PSA: Get a better mask! Where to buy authentic N95 and KN95 masks cheap

Make sure yours can do this

The other day I went back to the Roosh V forums to see if the COVID-infected former PUA-turned-fanatical-Christian was doing any better, and it turns out he is.

anti-Semitism conspiracy theory covid

Right-wing bloviator Dennis Prager thinks that the clods who won’t wear masks in the grocery store are the same sort of people who hid Jews from the Nazis

Dennis Prager is a right-wing bloviator and the founder of Prager “University,” which is about as much of a university as it is a pastrami sandwich. He has many terrible opinions, which he expresses in newspaper columns and brief videos, on such topics as gay marriage (he’s against it), the environment (he’s against it), free school lunches (he’s against them), and the alleged “Islamicization of America” (he’s guess what? against it).

He also has opinions on the burning question of our age: who would be most likely to hide Jews from the authorities “in the event of a Nazi-like outbreak.”

Roosh V dismissed fears of COVID as “gay” and “girly.” Now he seems to have caught the bug himself, and it’s bad

Roosh, in happier times

It’s probably not a shock to learn that Roosh V — former-PUA-turned-Orthodox-Christian — is a COVID “skeptic” who railed against the COVID vaccines and refused to wear a mask. He once dismissed fears of COVID as “a girl thing” and “gay.”

The most ridiculously pretentious argument against wearing a mask comes courtesy of The Federalist

It’s safe to say that The Federalist — the inexplicably well-funded right-wing rag — isn’t happy about Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates. Their first post on the subject declared it a “fascist move”; a followup post groused that the Biden administration is “really just using lies and deception to force their agenda on the American public without regard for the law or Constitution.”

Anti-vaxxers just can’t stop talking about big, buff, manly dudes beating people up

Pump you up

You may remember a fellow I wrote about last week — a GOP candidate in Pennsylvania who threatened to take “twenty strong men” into a school board meeting and physically remove the board for mandating masks for kids.

GOP candidate vows to physically “remove” mask-mandating school boards with the help of “20 strong men”

19 more of these guys and he’s set

Steve Lynch — the Republican candidate for Northampton, Pennsylvania’s County Executive — describes himself as a fighter for “freedom” and democracy. But he has a strange notion of democracy, at least when it comes to the issue of mask mandates.

A New York Times article says the anti-vaxxers are getting stronger; an article in the Washington Post says they’re weakening. Both articles are right.

Schrodinger’s Maru: Inside the box but also outside it

The two most influential newspapers in the US put out a set of dueling vaccine op-eds today, with the Washington Post’s Aaron Blake delivering up evidence of what his article’s headline called the “slow and steady decline of the vaccine skeptics.” Over in the New York Times, meanwhile, science writer Tara Haelle argued that “[t]he Anti-Vaccine Movement Is Getting Stronger.”
