LA Times Writer Loses His Mind And Mocks Dead Americans
I get so tired of the absolute polarization on crucial topics. Like American rights, and even death. In some cases, it seems like people are so hypnotized politically that they forget, behind these opposing opinions are actual human beings. Like this writer from LA Times, Michael Hiltzik, who thinks they should 'dance on the graves' of the unvaccinated. He claimed in his article that mocking the dead was 'necessary':
"It may be not a little ghoulish to celebrate or exult in the deaths of vaccine opponents. And it may be proper to express sympathy and solicitude to those they leave behind.
But mockery is not necessarily the wrong reaction to those who publicly mocked anti-COVID measures and encouraged others to follow suit, before they perished of the disease the dangers of which they belittled.
Nor is it wrong to deny them our sympathy and solicitude, or to make sure it’s known when their deaths are marked that they had stood fast against measures that might have protected themselves and others from the fate they succumbed to."
Hiltzik argued that it's the only way to ensure the "teachable moments are heard". His piece doesn't just paint the picture that the writer is a sad angry man, but he also ignores the hard-line politics that's been woven into the pandemic as well as the naval vaccine.
He's also ignoring that some states (Red states) have been denied access or rationed supplies to treat Covid positive patients. Therapies that could have saved lives. Such as in Florida, where the Surgeon General blasted Biden for cutting the State's treatment options.
"We are very concerned with the Biden administration and the HHS' recent abrupt, sudden announcement that they are going to dramatically cut the number of monoclonal antibodies that are going to be sent to the state of Florida," Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said following the Surgeon General's concerns.
On top of that, we are seeing a surge in 'break through cases' on fully vaccinated people with fatalities but those cases are dismissed as 'unhealthy people anyway'. The CDC's risk factors list is insanely long and includes issues like anxiety as a possible risk factor for death and severe illness regardless of vaccination status.
Hiltzik doesn't just take aim at the unvaccinated but the vaccinated who still stand for individual rights. The irony in this is that Hiltzik blurts out these horrific opinions while enjoying a freedom he seems to want to destroy—Free speech. While it may be socially unacceptable to mock the dead it's still not a crime—yet.
