This is pretty vile

Seen on Facebook by Snopes:



("Here's the ventilators that was sent to New York". Yeesh!)

Anyway, as Governor Cuomo calmly pointed out, the peak of Covid infections in New York ...um...hasn't actually arrived yet. They're trying to get their ducks in a row, and so they are getting their supplies and equipment organized and ready to go when that peak does come, soon.

But of course, this kind of slime fools folks who aren't that bright, or simply appeals to those who look to confirm their biases:

plus, the meme is grammatically incorrect.

The target audience firmly believes that grammar is for Liberals only.

I’m glad I wasn’t the only one to notice that. Expanding “here’s”, you get “Here is the ventilators that was sent to New York.”

For whatever reason, that really grates on my ear...even putting the intent of the meme aside.

One word: CULT.

They are indoctrinating an entire generation with his bs. No one can reason with insanity and "fake news" claims. Distopian future ahead, perhaps before 2040. Hate to be negative, but that's what it's looking like.

EDIT: And by distopian, I mean Escape from NY scenario. Thought police, "re-education" camps/ghettos, etc.

I will asterisk that with a big "unless a significant portion of Rs -- there are only about 20% at best who are not actually in the base -- consistently stand up and call this @#$%& out."

Think McCain's weak-willed defense of Obama in '08: "He's not a Muslim, he's a good person and he cares about our nation..." Paraphrasing here, but he should've also said, "Even if he were a Muslim, it wouldn't matter. Muslims aren't bad. Yes, they have their crazy extremists just like Christians and Jews do..."

His heart was in the right place, though, so points for that.

NOTHING done after the fact really matters to those who garner their awareness from news bites - the political pros know this, the public doesn't care about this sort of stuff.
