Rush Limbaugh is training his audience to question the reality of COVID-19


Trump called Fox News contributor who likened COVID-19 to the flu his guide to vaccines

In a July 22 interview, President Donald Trump told Dr. Marc Siegel that the Fox News medical contributor is “almost like my guide” to COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics because “you really have a good take on it.” Siegel, a longtime contributor and nearly constant presence on Fox News since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, has spread misinformation about the virus, said the “worst case scenario” is “it could be the flu,” criticized states for rolling back restrictions after cases spiked again, and said Dr. Anthony Fauci’s job was to agree with the president.

Surely we here at RatSkep are well-used to the practice of over-stating grievances. There's nothing observed in that tweet but infantile narcissism. There might be a better term, and that's why I'd better stick to observing "grievances overstated".

Marshall MN might as well be in Iowa or South Dakota. It has a population of less than 15000. It's rural, and you can't be in any doubt what the rural US is like, living where you do in Maine. The next step is found, not in WalMart, but out by the woodchipper in Fargo. It's easy to feel judgemental about rural Americans, but this is what they grew up with.

Well, yes, there is a sameness to the rural areas. Just the climate differs a bit. I remember the big change on driving 20 miles from St Louis in any direction. It was as if you had driven into the South, but people still talking in Midwest accents.

15000 is bigger than any town within 80 miles, and none that big heading north from here. But that's just an interesting sidenote. Honestly it's different up here compared to most rural places outside of New England that I've been to. I can't speak for the upper midwest or west, never having been there. I can't remember seeing any confederate flag memorabilia anywhere in Maine. Of course it's the north, but I also don't see people going around with second amendment memorabilia, for instance, or Hitlery shirts. I would be shocked to see someone in public with Nazi imagery. We have plenty of ignorance, and even plenty of "soft" racism, but people are not so in your face about it. It's not publicly acceptable to be racist in the open here. Thank The Ghost of Mr Woodchcuckles. :dopey:

Yes, I know that; Maine isn't the great plains. Maybe the point is that this kind of stuff thrives in little burgs of 15 or 20 thousand, but not so much in the backwoods. I don't know what politics is like in Maine fishing villages that aren't very touristy.

Gray, a town north of Portland and to which I've been, is a little smaller, has Howell's gun shop and indoor range and a thing called "Bible Believing Baptist Church". I dunno, though. I was just passing through. I've met Mainers who aren't particularly friendly to folks "from away". I've only ever traveled there in conjunction with someone else's desire to visit relatives and friends. I've also been to the corner of the Midwest where Marshall is located and lots of other similar places, but not since things got way redder out there.

Oh yeah, there's plenty of religious, and "people who claim to be religious but break any old commandment they feel like", and gun owners are probably in the majority, but that doesn't also include open racism. No question there are racist people around, because they exist everywhere, but it's not apparent in day to day public life. I live right in the bible belt of Maine, almost fully pro-Trump at that. :waah: It's worth it. The culture up here is live and let live, and myob. But if someone went to my local grocery store with swastika masks on, I'm betting they'd be kindly asked to remove them or leave before even getting to the checkout.
This doesn't change the discussion much, but there are only 12 cities and towns in Maine of more than 10,000 people. :lol: I can speak for all of the towns above 5000 people between Brewer and Fort Kent, and no swastikas or confederate flags, no 2nd amendment bumper stickers that I've ever spotted. I do see Trump/Republican campaign signs on lawns, and I don't know how they square it in their head with religion, but that goes for the whole country. :crazy:

Who's being judgemental about rural Americans? I only see people being judgemental about the dicks with swastikas on their faces.

I wasn't accusing you of being judgmental of rural Americans. Were you so accusing me? Making fun of Podunk has a long tradition in American humor. Maybe these days it's considered politically incorrect because it adds a soupçon to polarization.

Rural America isn't all rural. Urban America isn't all urban. Many rural Americans move to the city because they're bored (and maybe also poor) in Whistle Stop, Iowa. Social media reach the hicks wherever they live. Does that help?

They made ABC news, second only to a story on Trump not throwing out the first pitch at a Yankees game.
https://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/cou ... dlines_hed
“Store management offered the individuals disposable face masks as an alternative, which they refused. The individuals became belligerent and were asked to leave the store by store management,” Walmart said.

The couple's trespass ban is for at least a year and applies to all Walmart stores, the company said."

ibid wrote:“If you vote for (Democratic presidential candidate Joe) Biden, you’re going to be living in Nazi Germany, that's what it's going to be like,” the woman with the swastika mask said in the video as her husband loaded bags of groceries into a shopping cart.

The husband was wearing a Trump shirt. They think Biden is closer to Nazi Germany than Trump. Biden, the most milquetoast centrist imaginable. It's got to be lead poisoning. There's no way poor education alone can explain such lunacy...

Trump gorillas providing "law and order"

when in fact they themselves are providing the conflict. If the people insist on protesting at night, Trump will keep this up till November.

Conservative youth group Turning Point USA co-founder Charlie Kirk:
Do not force me to wear a mask. It's that simple. I'm not going to do it. I'm not. [...] [E]very single time I go into one of these grocery stores, ‘Where’s your mask?’ I say, well first of all, the science around masks is very questionable, very questionable. In fact some people, some doctors think that masks actually make you sicker and have you less likely to be able to get oxygen and more likely to infect yourself, and less likely to be able to fight the virus, and actually more likely to be able to die sooner.

Jesus fuck!

Most troubling of all, perhaps, was a sentiment the expert said a member of Kushner’s team expressed: that because the virus had hit blue states hardest, a national plan was unnecessary and would not make sense politically. “The political folks believed that because it was going to be relegated to Democratic states, that they could blame those governors, and that would be an effective political strategy,” said the expert.

That logic may have swayed Kushner. “It was very clear that Jared was ultimately the decision maker as to what [plan] was going to come out,” the expert said.
