Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.
-Sophocles, verses 620-623 of Antigone
If these Trump Death Cult Party clowns were just being selfish, that would be horrific enough, but, as I always say, these Pro-COVID assholes are murderous psychopaths. They know exactly what they are doing and they are doing it deliberately. Republicans worship death, cruelty, and human misery. It is their driving force. It is the driving force of all of their policies. It is their default position. In this case, they are fully aware that they are clogging up our hospitals and severely stressing the medical infrastructure of this country. What is happening now was also a predictable result of the Republican Party's general attitude towards healthcare for Americans. Right now, people who need life-saving surgeries for cancer treatment, heart problems, and other terrible illnesses are having to wait. How many will have their conditions worsen due to waiting? How much needless suffering and death? How much misery, anxiety, and fear could obviously be avoided? These scum don't give a damn. It's who they are as republicans. It is ingrained in them. They are imbued to the max with the opposite of empathy. No wonder they worship a false idol we call The Orange Menace To Society.
