If you were not naively regurgitating disinformation but instead were interested in the topic honestly, you would obviously know very well that all of this is STILL covered completely by selection, because comparing 2 individuals of a species, the individual with fewer deleterious mutations will still on average produce more surviving offspring.

It depends on the strength of selection, not the number of mutations. You, incorrectly, claimed that selection weeds out all deleterious variations. It doesn't. All of us inherit slightly harmful mutations that marginally degrade our survival chances.
