    1. @Scott Harrison y’all don’t tell the truth. Republicans are demonic psychos who don’t care if your kid get sick and die.

    2. @Bruh operation warp speed only help fund the Moderna vaccine. Pfizer came out fist and it’s more effective.

    3. GOVENOR SYNDER KILLED CHILDREN WITH FLINTS WATER AND SITS IN JAIL FACTS,, ABBOT AND DESANTIS ARE NEXT FACTS

    4. @Harold Moore GOVENOR SYNDER KILLED CHILDREN WITH FLINTS WATER AND SITS IN JAIL FACTS,, ABBOT AND DESANTIS ARE NEXT FACTS

  1. Does anyone recall African Americans loudly protesting masking and vaccination at rallies, or threatening people who wear masks and get vaccinated?

    1. @nattyski _IF YOU READ THE FULL THREAD,_ I said both:
      *_”No, I don’t ascribe to the [Blacks are the] “largest group” to blame theory”_* and,
      *_”Doesn’t help_*_ lower hospitalizations and deaths, however…”_ i.e. it’s a contributing factor – do you deny that?

      I understand that as threads get longer you may not want to make the effort, but stop being such a righteous foreigner (talking about Texas), if you’re not going to at least understand the full context.

    2. @George Hugh I read the thread George, including the bits where your maths skills seem unimpressive. You noted ‘what would you rather a whiny group that is more than 50% vaccinated or a less verbal group that is 28% vaccinated”. Then added to that by mentioning the risk on a ‘per capita basis’. By that token, in essence you ARE blaming the surge in cases and lack of ICU beds in Texas on people that are 12% of the population and account for 15% of the cases. On a per capita basis it’s an even stupider argument. Texas has a population of roughly 29.2 million people. Your maths doesn’t math and you are using it to justify your “contributing” comment. It is simply egregious to listen to that Lt Governor’s words and then read your random justification based on flawed numbers. That type of misleading blame and pivot from a government official, is shameful and the fact that your moral compass is so broken it doesn’t even register, is not shocking anymore.We all see who you are now. Would rather be righteous than an apologist for this type of rhetoric.

    3. @George Hugh So now we see that not only are you racist, you are a xenophobe too? Did you really say, “…stop being such a righteous foreigner…”?

      Looks like it is true, if you let people talk they will reveal who they are on the inside.

    4. @nattyski our reputation of racism amounts to a 5 gallon bucket out of an Olympic swimming pool.
      The reality is geometrically worse than our reputation would lead you to believe.
      I grew up a poor, white, Floridian.
      When I was a small child you could see the dirt through the floorboards in my house, we didn’t have hot water, and we put logs in the oven compartment to make fire to cook on the top of the range.
      Crescent Beach just south of Jacksonville.
      Spent a lot of time in Maxville, Normandy Blvd West side Jacksonville, and Yulee.
      Linden Texas for a while and then I started traveling north.
      Maryland and eventually Philadelphia.
      Then I join the Navy traveled to California spend some time there. traveled to Hawaii spent a lot of time there .
      As I traveled north south east and west I found that the racism simply changed shape. For more importantly the racism changes directions depending where You are. Racist white people in the North are strange blend of smart and stupid.
      But they all seem to have a wannabe streak.
      The only true racist white boys come from Florida Georgia Tennessee Alabama and Texas.

  2. Well here we go once again Republicans lying I’d like to know what he is smoking? Playing the name game it’s total non sense.

    1. HHS is looking at discontinuing medicaid payments for unvaxxed infected since they are bringing upon themselves. This would be one heck of an incentive. Should you support this flood HHS with emails and phone calls. Pass it on.

    2. “if ya don’t know what they are smoking and got da vax, then you ain’t Black!”
      – *Joe Biden*

  3. When all has failed with the GOP then blame the black, brown, & indigenous people for their failures. But it’s ok to put voters suppression laws in place to keep them from voting! And the GOP says there’s no systematic racism

    1. Blacks are hesitant because the American pharmaceutical and medical industries have a long history of using them as genie pigs for new drug trials. The side effects has harmed or killed many of them. It’s kind of the same reason blacks don’t trust police…their experiences have been different than other ethnic and racial groups.

    1. @Chad Winters …. Chad there where No Black or Brown people there. It was a Conservative party in the south.! They used the n word and W word a lot that day.!!

    2. LOL! RIGHT! If he would have had a mask on he may not be sick now. Can’t wait to vote Abbot out and his racist Lt. Gov.

    1. I won’t wish sickness on anyone. But I will take particular delight in voting Patrick OUT of office in 2022!

  4. If I lived in U.S.( I live in U.K.), I wouldn’t call him “Uninformed” I would call him a “Liar”, in Public & invite him to Sue. I would just go into Court with a Video. Job Done.

    1. Fox doesn’t even call themselves news. They are all biased of full of it most of the time. But Fox is not any exception. They are an entertainment network. I find it really entertaining whenever anyone takes them seriously.

  5. I so can understand why blacks would be more hesitant in taking the shot…however.. let’s face it there is far more whites not getting the shot…

    1. Blacks are hesitant because the American pharmaceutical and medical industries have a long history of using them as genie pigs for new drug trials. The side effects has harmed or killed many of them. It’s kind of the same reason blacks don’t trust police…their experiences have been different than other ethnic and racial groups.

    2. @D. Boss – There was probably one company that did this and there were only 60 victims, not 10s of 1000s. It was one single incident that happened. But, the propaganda that comes out of that makes it literally 10’s of 1000s times worse than it was originally.
      It’s the same with the police. The stories are so wild and exaggerated that 90% of blacks believe that they will be killed by the police if they are pulled over. This elevated anxiety level causes the police to become more suspicious. It’s a terrible cycle of events that can be stopped if white leftist iiidddiiots like you stopped spreading lies.

  6. This ain’t a both sides issue. It’s about the Republicans being ignorant. Remember that Victoria.

    1. While I agree with you in general, this particular statement is about Dan Patrick being an ignorant racist.

    2. GOVENOR SYNDER KILLED CHILDREN WITH FLINTS WATER AND SITS IN JAIL FACTS,, ABBOT AND DESANTIS ARE NEXT FACTS

  7. Weird that Republicans object to being called racists then they take every opportunity to demonstrate they are.

    1. @Marc Lewiswell you are dropping like flies in the south and I’m not mad at that!!! Keep dying to own the libs!!!

    2. @Carl Fisher And if you have a lot of white people who are unvaccinated as is the case in Texas, the same sort of segregation principle applies… only there are more of them.

    1. “Guuuurrllll…. if you ain’t crying muHrACisM all the time, den you ain’t Black!”
      – *Joe Biden* King of Black People

    2. Joe biden and kamala Harris have put more blacks in jail than any politician ever! Stop believing democrat lies

    1. Biden’s press conferences on Afghanistan have been an embarrassment.

      His administration should be imprisoned

  8. Of course it’s all the Democrats fault. The only way it isn’t their fault is if the Republicans had retained top spots in Washington, and then, of course, it would be the Democrats fault.

  9. As a Texan, I can testify that Dan Patrick is a known crook. This state’s Republican party is a deadly disaster. Their greatest accomplishment is the gerrymandering of voting districts that will probably keep them in the majority indefinitely.

  10. “The last time I checked 90% of them vote Democrat” that’s why we target them with voter restrictions) that’s the part that he forgot to say.
