Of course I am angry about what DeSantis. Abbot et al and what anti-vaxxers are doing
but I am even more upset that there is not enough push back from those who oppose them, and I mean people in office, lawyers.
How is it possible that DeSantis, Abbot, and others are willingly passing laws to prevent people from taking care of themselves, their families, their children when they know those mandates will result in people becoming infected and some of them will die. Why is it that no prosecution has begun against the evil bastards?
There are two reason why they are doing this, one to make Biden look bad (which makes no sense), and the other to cater to their ignorant base, but regardless of the reasons, they know very well the outcome of their actions, they know it will become impossible to stop the pandemic, they know people will become infected, they know people will die, and they know they are pushing the healthcare system to an abyss.
So WHY is it that not good lawyers are coming to pressure these murderers to stop their evil actions? Why is it that our Democratic elected officials are just complaining but no real action to stop them is happening?
As I said, I am even more angry at those who know better, who do have a brain but are not doing enough to stop the madness. The magats are just brainless, and you cannot cure stupid, but those with power need to start prosecutions, the intent of these politicians is clear, and they have lost the ability to claim ignorance because we all have seen the result of their actions, and even Abbot contracted the virus. Where are the good lawyers when we need them?
I have to believe a smart law firm could make a class action suit from those who were fed misinformation and died or lost a loved one after following that misinformation. Fox News, OAN, politicians that espouse the crazy lies will only be curtailed when there is a cost to them. You are right I think that the DeSantis and Abbotts and such are just throwing red meat to a base they hope to expand nationwide for a run at the Presidency. Basically the 1/3 of voters who support anti-vax, anti mask are helping a pandemic hold all of us hostage.
...if we had an AG who could see the danger these monsters pose.
...but if Jan 6th wasn't enough to prompt DOJ to arrest the coup plotters and genocidal maniacs, I guess nothing will.
I am still waiting for DOJ to charge Cheney and Rove for treason in the Valerie Plame event. Probably will go to my grave with that unfulfilled dream.
Continually blow shit over everyone so they just keep wiping it away and dont have the opportunity to stop it.
There are people in positions of power, elected officials and health and legal experts, who are surprisingly mute about what is going on with DeSantis, Abbott, and other Repub governors. There should be a host of voices raised against this, many more lawsuits and other legal remedies being thrown against this horror. It's amazing how many sit silent or, at best, make tepid and useless comment with no action following. Why?
