    • @Howard Laney what an epically stupid thing to write. it wasn’t a “nice day.” was in the 30s and drizzling on/off. also, you’re using “communist” incorrectly and no one is “implementing” anything.

    • @efs 1066 There’s no way to fix tRump[anzee grade stupid and treachery. Deportation to Minsk is the kindest thing we can do for them, and much more humane than putting them down for being tRaitors.

    • efs 1066 it’s funny how everything they have trouble understanding is “communism”

    • @circle A yep. spot on.
      (everything they don’t like _used_ to all be labelled “socialism.” but then they realized “communism” is even stupider and even more insane … so they all immediately moved to that.)

    • efs 1066 exactly that angle takes less knowledge on economics to push their fear mongering

    • @No Master Above Me No Slave Below Me “You watch MSLSD

      you TRY to troll. now, can you find a single claim in this video that isnt fact based?
      how about you try to find a single claim in the last 10 videos by MSNBC that isnt based in fact.
      you cant. because you are completely brainwashed against anything that doesnt fit you little political bubble.

      @Rory Cannon Keep fighting for your enslavement while others fight for your rights
      It’s idiots like you who believe the founding fathers were terrorists who fought against King George.
      MSM is fatal if swallowed, you are poisoning yourself with lies.
      You’ve been social engineered to believe the Gov’t is good.
      They are organized crime and the MSM is it’s propaganda arm.

      The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.

      Edward Bernays, Propaganda

      It is easier to fool someone than to convince them they’ve been fooled.
      Carry on morons.
      Demand that your Gov’t enslaves you!
      No new laws were passed, yet you follow suggestions of tyrants or face fines and being caged if you don’t comply with suggestions, yet they are letting people out of jail because they fear breakouts of the Covid 19 hoax?
      They are lsying off hospital staff furloughing nurses because they are not busy, 13,000 for positive tests
      (Which are flawed) and 39,000$ for putting people on ventilators.
      They’re hiring strippers to pose as doctors blocking protesters in traffic to take propaganda photos.
      You people have Stockholm syndrome.
      Defending your captors!

    • @No Master Above Me No Slave Below Me “I’m not political,
      I see through the left right paradigm divide and Conquer.”
      but that is an abject falsehood. The elite literally only gain with the republican side policies. Democrats want higher taxes for the rich, republicans against that.


  9. Simple: Record their names, put them in low priority group during covid-19 treatment.

    • EXACTLY!!!!! 💯💯💯💯

      Doctors are getting furloughed all over the state. They need work, as sadly for them, the virus isn’t doing much damage.

    • Andrew Furrer | April 25, 2020 at 8:02 PM | Reply

      @Trains,Transformers&PATRIOTSFan1236 how is “maintaining the quarantine” a long term solution that makes any sense?

    • Trains,Transformers&PATRIOTSFan1236 | April 25, 2020 at 8:10 PM | Reply

      @Andrew Furrer It isnt. We gotta face the music at some point. The whole point of the comment was to try and have people kinda sympathize with the protesters instead of wishing them death. Maybe its just me, but thats not a very nice thing to do.

    • Yeah that sounds like a socialist thing to do

  10. He wants to open the state buts wearing a maks hhmmmmm

    • DAVID TURCZAK | April 27, 2020 at 7:25 AM | Reply

      Nick L I know the virus is deadly but so is living in the streets when you lose everything from this . We will see a lot of people who think they are going back to work won’t . The business they think they are going back to is more than likely bust and they probably would of exhausted there unemployment benefits by then . It’s a no win situation.

    • @Andrew Furrer how do you really know that herd immunity will work? Because now they are saying there is no immunity to this

    • @Laura “They” have been wrong about everything since day one. I think some common sense is in order. The vast majority of people will experience no major symptoms. Isolate the elderly and vulnerable, let the rest go on as normal. It’s worked for every other pandemic in recorded history, so why change the game plan this time? We’re ruining the world economy seemingly for no reason.

      If we open up, and data shows hospitalizations are increasing dramatically, we can readjust. I’m not advocating 50,000 fan concerts, but this sheltering strategy makes no sense and is prolonging the disease.

    • @Andrew Furrer of course they have been wrong at times its a learning process for humanity viruses are unpredictable from person to person if everyone knew the secrets of the world we wouldn’t see ppl aurguing online about who’s right or wrong

      I also don’t think they should wear a mask. A lot of them think it’s just the flu so if it’s just a flu why are you wearing a mask as well

      @micro tarded bringing the heat!!

    • @micro tarded cdc isn’t in charge of death certificates

    • So if you take the official Corona virus current stats they look like this for all you scared people out there. . 00038 percent of the world population has been supposedly infected those numbers again are most likely inflated yet we bring the financial world to a stand still. . 07 percent of those people have died, again based off of inflated numbers since they are giving cause of death on Corona virus if the patient even tested positive but died of other causes also they are allowed to claim Corona virus if they can’t come up with anything else but the symptoms are similar.

    • @efs 1066 look up every death the hospitals documents as covid gets a lot more funding thats a fact. Doctor birx even said out of her own mouth if you come to the hospital sick and die of a heart attack they count that as death by covid. The majority of old people die from the common cold or flu every year thats the number one cause every year, their systems shut down and thats all it takes. Or the women who gave birth 4 months early and the baby died but the mother tested positive for covid so they counted the baby dying from covid. there is insensitive to report these death as covid more funding. Doctors do what is recommended by the cdc. And the CDC is running this whole thing and is the one’s reporting these deaths. 50,000 out of 300,000,000 whats that? You people are not comprehending how low of a death rate this is. Why didn’t they do this for the 1.5 million that died from tuberculosis in 2018? Tuberculosis is very contagious. 150,000 people die a day do you comprehend that people die and there are 7 billion people on this planet. The media has you in a trance you can focus on any cause of death and make it seem like a pandemic heart disease, cancer, car wrecks, obesity, starvation. We dont live in a perfect world we all die you or anyone else on this planet cannot prevent that. You probably have a really big heart and the media and government are playing on that for control over you. Fear Is the governments greatest weapon. When the masses are scared they will do anything to feel safe. The government cannot ever keep you safe not ever. Anyone who trades their freedom for the promise of peace and safety neither deserve peace nor safety. Its government that has set off over 2050 test nukes world wide in the past 70 years you think maybe thats the cause of climate change? In the 20th century governments killed more people then all wars put together in the past 2000 years and you trust these people because they have PhDs or positions of power? How many times do the people need to be herded like cattle by the powers that be before they get this fact? It looks to me like never. the masses are ignorant and panicky so easily manipulated by propaganda in schools in the media by government officials. Its all a game to control freaks and positions of power are always attracts control freak psycho paths. Please can we learn from our past or are we going to keep pretending these people really care about us? There is a reason they are freaking everyone out now they are getting ready to change our lives again like after the bushes blow up the word trade Center to take away all of our rights in the name of peace and safety. now they grope our children in airports but leave the borders wide open thats double think at its best. Did the patriot act make us any safer because of that act we are all guilty until proven innocent it helped nothing. Just more control on good law bidding citizens thats it.

      I would *rather* *die* for my freedom than be *controlled* for something that’s been blown out of proportion.

    • @operation.eight I wish people would stop taking things to both extremes and just be sensible. You 8ncluded.

    • @operation.eight next month will be 100,000 deaths, at what point will you get it

    • @operation. eight. Hang in there!!! I’ve thought the same, then I think of how my loved ones would feel if I were dead. It’s a tough situation but here’s a prayer to you. Please take care of this person, my dear GOD , bless and take care of his/ her family. Keep them
      all healthy and grant us peace during these trying times.
      In Jesus Christ’s name I pray. Amen

    • Jack Lincoln you know you can live through the corona virus. there are over a hundred thousand something people who have lived through it. So saying that doesn’t make since nor is that even related to that quote and it’s meaning.

    Whenever they decide to teach civics again, they can have a good laugh about this phase in our history.

    • For one reagan wasn’t the one to do that.

    • Marginally Sapient Cactus I lived in California and yes reagan did remove civics from California public education thru his relentless slashing of California school funding forcing dept of education to cut their curriculum which resulted in civics being cut, as president he took the same disdain for education, setting a rightwing republican trend of degrading and trashing teachers. Which took our once best education in the world to the poor state it’s in today. Reagan hated the idea of people a free education

    • Alan Carroll Jr must live in a myopic Fox rightwing world. If you think education is a Marxist act. I bet you are completely clueless to things about Karl Marx beyond his name. But you’re proof of how bad our education system has deteriorated, 60 million rightwing trump illiterate lowly educated morons who needs more evidence than that.
      When ignorance “reigns”
      You end up with idiots like trump and his followers… the lowly educated sycophants.
      PS: maybe if they did learn about constitutional infringement we would never have allowed the most dangerous and violators of our constitution like trump, Mitch, the GOP.

    • JVS 3 exactly when there’s plenty of evidence that points to the contrary, like in Texas when they claim slaves were “workers” that were happy.

    • @Alan Carroll Jr tRaitor tRumpanzee goes to tRump rally and shouts:”12 more years” then, tries to accuse others of constitutional infringement.

    Imagine protesting a virus lol

    • @Dan Glisson I agree. This transmission is increasing at a linear rate. A slope upwards. It is expected to double by summer.

    • I don’t care if it will cure itself or It will last 2 years. The main point is your government will loosen pandemic restrictions. Everyone will go back to work. But pandemics can have a second wave and mutations may occur. Best time to have family time.

      Two weeks after the protests and hospitalizations are under 300 in Wisconsin now. I guess these protesters fighting for the restoration of their civil liberties didn’t create a death spike after all?

  20. “FREE-DUMB” comes at a cost. Eventually everyone pays for it.
