Elect a populist, people die
Delinquents masquerading as leaders visited avoidable suffering and loss upon millions of people from Brazil to the US and Ontario.

Just about every leader let their ego and ignorance get in the way, some such as Trump, Bolsonaro and Ford to epic lows.


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Snippets:

Fact 1: A murderous virus has proven that a lot of people die when populist charlatans get elected.

Fact 2: Scientists have established that the sad sweep of deaths, grief and despair this contagion has caused should not have happened.

Fact 3: We now know that when a grim, relentless disease meets petty, diseased minds, catastrophe is likely to ensue.

Some of the charlatans’ names are familiar: Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro.

These two preening delinquents masquerading as leaders have visited inconsolable pain, suffering and loss upon so many families whose names we do not know.

Anyone from anywhere who, for any reason, disputes these facts is guilty of the same ignorance and infuriating obstinance of these two rich, white men whose disdain for the nearly one million people in the United States and Brazil who have succumbed to a mutating virus is as plain as it is grotesque.

----------------------

The screed then turns its sights to Premier Ford of Ontario and those, including liberals, who supported him. No populist leader gets a break.

The duo of Trump and Bolsonaro have assured their citizens that the virus will disappear and in Bolsonaro's case to quit whining about it. 

Meanwhile back in reality hundreds of thousands of citizens have died.

People are still dying from Covid 19 under Biden's watch. So Biden is a charlatan as well.

You are comparing Trump's 1 year of inactivity and incompetence, to Biden's 4 months of arranging for the vaccine to be administered to almost 3 million people each day?

You are comparing Trump's over 550,000 deaths from COVID and no plan to deal with it, to Biden's shrinking infection and death numbers?

You are comparing Trump's hydroxychloroquine and injecting disinfectant, to Biden's "wear a mask" and social distancing advice?

So Trump is responsible for Democrats downplaying the virus all across the US and decrying Trump as a racist for his travel bans? 

He is also responsible for mighty mental midget Democrat Governors putting people that tested positive for Covid-19 into old age, nursing, and retirement homes? 

Biden wouldn't have any damn vaccines to administer if it wasn't for Trump. Biden is the one who thought we didn't have a vaccine when he took office.

Politicians and political commentators mocked President Biden for a gaffe Tuesday when he said "we didn't have" the COVID-19 vaccine when he came into office.

Biden made the slip-up during a CNN town hall with host Anderson Cooper. He had said earlier in the town hall that there were "50 million doses that were available" when he took office in response to a question about his administration's vaccine rollout, though  fewer vaccines had actually been administered at the time.

US ADMINISTERING 1.7M COVID-19 VACCINE DOSES DAILY, WHITE HOUSE SAYS

"It's one thing about the vaccine – which we didn't have when we came into office – but a vaccinator, you need the needle, you need the mechanisms to be able to get it in," the president said. "Now, we have made significant strides increasing the number of vaccinators."

Biden received his second dose on Jan. 11 as president-elect, three weeks after getting his first one with television cameras rolling in an attempt to reassure the American public that the inoculations are safe.

You are comparing Trump's over 550,000 deaths from COVID and no plan to deal with it, to Biden's shrinking infection and death numbers?

Considering Democrats are responsible for how many of those deaths for their nursing and retirement home idiocy? How many more for their "mostly peaceful protesters" that violated the mask and social distancing? Yeah, Democrats live in their own little deluded Trump bumble. 

You are comparing Trump's hydroxychloroquine and injecting disinfectant, to Biden's "wear a mask" and social distancing advice?

And is the infection rate is going down? Of course the majority of the states that are seeing an infection spike are run by Democrats- go figure. China Joe is responsible for the deaths from Covid 19 since he took office, not Trump. But Democrats want to continue to pad Trump's number.

"But Trruuummmmppppp!!!!!", that is all the left has. Never takes responsibility for anything they do.

You can't expect a party that has shown its lack of spine time and time again to stand up and take responsibility for anything. Trump and his conservative Republican base want to take all the credit for anything that went right but none of the blame for their failures, they will do anything to deflect and distract from reality to maintain their dwindling power.

How can you conceivably defend a man whose self-admitted delays (taped by Woodward) and publicly voiced misinformation (it will disappear...like a miracle) encouraged inaction and allowed the virus to proliferate at a higher rate than in any civilized country in the world until it was too late to effectively contain it?

The former occupant of the White House thanks to his impotence and incompetence and gross/criminal/DEADLY negligence is responsible for over 500,000 DEATHS

This might be the most preposterous article on Covid yet. 

I guess al Jazeera doesn't think enough of it's readers to assume they have a basic understanding of what's going on in the world or the ability to think critically. Sad to see.

It's obviously an opinion piece, all news sources worth the appellation offer up op-ed pieces that often are opposite of what the editorial board has to say. Cons on this site are quick to post such pieces from NYT.

As for Ontario, Ford was too slow and too timid to MANDATE the effective guidelines and procedures used by other leaders - a good example being the P.M. of New Zealand, allowing the virus to spread, and then after allowing that, re-opening too soon, causing record numbers to happen, tried to introduce some necessary methods to stop the spread and was so severely criticized by Ontarians who should have adhered to strict guidelines previously forcing Ford to withdraw what was probably necessary to reverse the rising numbers.  Sometimes Canadians can be as obstinate and self-destructive as Americans, although they're usually a lot more polite about it. 

Thankfully my daughter in Toronto has been able to and continues to work from home and is intelligent enoiugh to strictly follow the necessary guidelines to remain uninfected.

Looks like we are headed towards another lockdown.
