  1. These individuals have no problem paying property taxes, income taxes, tag fees, insurance fees etc, but the moment you ask them to do something that might save lives………all of a sudden they scream their constitutional rights are at risk! Huh……what?

    1. @AlphaMax Male Tyrannical LA you say ? Well with your numerous degrees you should pack up and head to St. Louis. What With the CULL OF THE STUPID about to increase empty apartments and homes should flood the market in record time . Problem solved ….You should feel right at home..

    2. Highlight your word MIGHT while compounding that with people who have died from the jab, become vegetables, blood clotted up, and have yet to see what happens to them in 2 years. You don’t have the right to tell a person they have to be one of the acceptable pharma death rate to protect you.

    3. @stan Bartkowiak true, but a lot of these people were all good with the “jab” when they wanted trump to get the credit as the election loomed. Plus this meeting in st. louis county was about mask requirements not forcing the vaccine on people.

  2. As a resident of St Louis… As embarrassed as I am to admit it… This is a very common train of thought for this part of the country. And it’s unfortunate that many of these people may not be here next year at this time because of this stupidity.

    And St Louis is one of the most racist cities I’ve ever been in.

    1. @Free Man what would you like? “Please feel free to spread disease” is that what you want to hear?

    2. @Chad Midgley Is that really your reply or are you just simply saying stupid stuff to waste time of legitimate commentators, I now suspect the former. I promise you if the 105 deaths per day were so easily prevented such as by wearing a mask and being vaccinated it would be law. Clearly not all threats in this world are mitigated by interventions that are of equal exertions. I am not from the US, I am watching stunned from another country, truly stunned by right wing ignorance and poor quality rationale, it fills me with despair. I am now so filled with despondency that I will say something I am not proud of, ‘please, do not wear your mask or get vaccinated, you go right ahead and stand up for your freedom.’

  3. OMG. He’s trying to save their stupid lives & they respond by doing everything possible to live up to “deplorable”. I’d say “Let them render themselves extinct”, but they take innocents with them- kids under 12, kids of anti vaxxers, immune compromised people, elderly with breakthrough infections…”Deplorable” is putting it nicely!!

    1. @AlphaMax Malemaybe you think the word “priests” should have had an apostrophe because you think priests are somehow possessive, or maybe you think so because you are obsessive, but you might want to revisit an English class to augment your 2 masters.
      Never mind. I see your parenthesis comment referred back to “don’t” instead of the word “priests” that preceded it. Although a parenthetical comment is supposed to refer back to what immediately precedes it, I stand corrected on that point. I stand correctly on all others.

    2. @William Parks This is so stupid and so easily to debunk that I must assume you are troll. No half way intelligent human can think that is true.

    1. Masks have no viable defense against this virus or any virus.  The particles in Covid-19 are about 10x smaller than the Influenza Virus.  The CDC has NEVER suggested to use a mask during flu season for this very reason.  If you look at the actual package, it said in the disclaimer section “this mask does not prevent virus infection”.  The N95 mask is made for sterile environments in medical environments and are not made to be worn for more than 20 minutes before they become completely ineffective at even stopping spittal let alone any virus.
      They are finding out that wearing masks is actually harmful to toddlers in their development as they rely on facial expressions to grow mentally. 
      It’s also been speculated that breathing your own Co2 for hours on end actually inhibits oxygen flow and can cause cell death especially in developing and growing children. 
      Independent researchers in the US as well as Japan and other European countries, since 2012, have been studying the effects of wearing fibrous masks like the N95.  What they’ve found is masks actually release nano particles called “nano-fibers/nano-plastics” which mimic Asbestos in it’s makeup, shape and size.  They speculate that constant wearing of certain masks may indeed cause Mesothelioma.

    2. Well, these anti-maskers are definitely making it easier to reasonably not give a f*ck about them.

    1. @Adam B You poor uneducated dude. You only have to look at Europe and all the deaths from the shot which I will admit its harder to see as US is censoring. Last US lie was I believe in the 10,000 range yet people say the true figure is more like 50,000 US deaths from the shot. People now refusing to take the shot have seen these facts and refuse the shot not because of the reactions ; BUT THE LIES being told. Truth would be handled much better than lies designed to and is creating division. I want to know real chances rather than being lied to and blindly follow. I won’t let them make me one of their acceptable deaths from being ignorant from the facts.

    2. @Darth Wiizius “ban them from *any* access to public health resources *for life* ,” —
      Way too harsh, everybody gets something wrong at some point or other. I do wonder if they should be covered for hospital expenses related to covid if they refuse vaccination when they had the chance. Why should *we* pay for the prerogative to refuse a vaccine? Personal choice means personal responsibility, including consequences.

    3. @squireson
      Y’know people get the death penalty for a death or two, these people and their conspiracies theories literally make them part of a conspiracy theory that has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and no doubt due to US influence, which is huge BTW no matter how isolationist Americans want to be, many more beyond US borders. Just saying, where do the draw the line?

  4. With any luck these people will also stop wearing seatbelts and helmets. Maybe they could do us a favor and stop waiting for the light to turn green before walking across the street. After all, the tyranny of the traffic signal must be overturned!

  5. “The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common.
    They don’t alter their views to fit the facts.
    Instead they alter the facts to fit their views.
    Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that need altering.”
    … from Dr. Who (“The Face of Evil” 1977)

    1. My thought too. But not that many but nothing surprised me now look at the civil war.and the Nazi war which is what we are in now.

  6. Enjoy those freedoms while being hooked up to a ventilator. That’s real freedom right there. The freedom to choose to die alone, on a ventilator.

    1. Why would they be on a ventilator? Those were ruled out as a treatment over a year ago.
      Keep up with the data.

    2. @William Springer People are still put on ventilators for Covid related respiratory troubles. You should probably take your own advice.

    1. They’re all cry-babies, but sadly I find it funny too….I shouldn’t, but I laugh hard at this stupidity.

    1. We don’t want or need the help. Most of us who don’t care were done with masks September of last year. It’s time to move on and quit wasting your time and breath

    2. @First Last ​ For all I care, you are welcome to do everything in your power to catch the bubonic plague — as long as you can keep the disease to yourself! But this personal freedom ends when your stupid life style choices put others in harm’s way.

    3. @stan Bartkowiak Masks and distancing were prescribed during the TRUMP admin. Diaper Don sneered at them, but that EAS the EXPERT advice then

  7. What will they do when they get Covid …. Yelling “we will not comply” Covid doesn’t discriminate….

  8. Trump and Fox news has trained them well. They won’t come to their senses until it’s all over but the crying.

    1. Sadly, we put that weight on the shoulders of our healthcare professionals, who have been telling people “I’m sorry,” as they’re begging for the vaccine after they come in, already sick. The last thing they’re telling people is “I’m sorry,” as they’re intubating them, while those folks are begging for the vaccine.

      Remember you are NOT awake when you are intubated. You are put into a state of unconsciousness, while they hope your body fights off the virus. But most people who are intubated never wake up.

    2. Masks have no viable defense against this virus or any virus.  The particles in Covid-19 are about 10x smaller than the Influenza Virus.  The CDC has NEVER suggested to use a mask during flu season for this very reason.  If you look at the actual package, it said in the disclaimer section “this mask does not prevent virus infection”.  The N95 mask is made for sterile environments in medical environments and are not made to be worn for more than 20 minutes before they become completely ineffective at even stopping spittal let alone any virus.

  9. Just heard a childhood friend’s anti-vax husband just died of Covid. Whomp whomp. I can’t even try to feel sorry for them. I can feel sorry for kids that aren’t eligible for the vaccine, people in countries that don’t have access, the immune compromised, and those that had the vaccine and die anyway. I just can’t feel anymore empathy for the stupid.

  10. This people probably feel they have a right to drink and drive and even smoke in buildings, they have no common sense,so ignorant

  11. “We have the right to get sick, and if we don’t get sick, to make others sick”
    Nice going, Murica

    1. @Jeff Landry The next time you need surgery, make sure to tell the doctor and the OR staff not to wear masks while they operate on you. Also tell them not to bother washing their hands either, since I’m sure you don’t believe in germs.
