I have an idea for how to reduce deaths from COVID.
Let’s start a conspiracy that Liberals actually don’t want Republicans to take the vaccine, because it’ll keep them safe from COVID. So they invented all the antivaxx stuff to make sure more conservatives get sick and die—so they can’t vote in 2022 and 2024.
So this is a plan to start a rumor about a hoax actually being a conspiracy.
(what an exhausting sentence)
The fake one.
So hopefully, if enough people hear about the conspiracy (to get Republicans not to take the vaccine), they’ll rebel by taking it! It’s like the opposites game.
Liberals: “Take the vaccine!”
Liberals: “Ok, the vaccine is actually dangerous, and is worse than the disease.”
Conservatives: “You’re tricking me so I’ll get sick, you bastards! I’m going to take it!”
Quote from WSJ
And before you think I’m being unfair with Republicans, Kaiser did a study recently that showed that “more than 80% of Democrats have already received at least one shot, compared with 49% of Republicans. Twenty-seven percent of Republicans say that they won’t get vaccinated under any circumstances, and an additional 9% will do so only if required. The comparable figures for Democrats are 3% outright refusal and 3% only if required.”
This really is a stubbornness and trust issue, so maybe it’s time to use that as a tool.
Am I serious? No. But I’m willing to try almost anything at this point.
