The crusade by Fox News to murder their own audience is continuing at full blast. The ignorant and dangerous advice they are disseminating is directly contributing to the recent surge in coronavirus infections, hospitalizations, and fatalities. Virtually all of those being swept up in that surge (99%) are unvaccinated.
By far, the segment of the American population that is unvaccinated, and refusing to get vaccinated, are Republicans and Fox News viewers. That shouldn’t surprise anyone since Fox News hacks like Tucker Carlson have been actively peddling conspiracy theories that vaccines don’t work, but “they” aren’t telling you. Studies show that watching Fox News actually increases coronavirus fatalities.
On Monday morning the Fox and Friends Death Panel upped the ante. Their discussion touched an imaginary government mandate to get vaccinated that doesn’t exist anywhere in the United States. Nevertheless, co-host Brian Kilmeade went ballistic over that delusional encroachment on what he regards as his personal freedom to die and to kill others:
Kilmeade: If you didn’t get a vaccination, that’s your choice. But if you did, like I did, and they did, and maybe you did, then you should not wear a mask. And if you want to go cliff diving this weekend, you don’t have to check with me. It seems a little dangerous. But I’m not gonna judge you. But if you put yourself in danger, if you feel that this is not something for you, don’t do it. But don’t affect my life.
Doocy: 99% of the people who are dying from COVID are unvaccinated.
Kilmeade: That’s their choice!
Doocy: They don’t want to die. So the administration and government is saying we need the mask mandates to protect the unvaccinated.
Kilmeade: That’s not their job. It’s not their job to protect anybody.
If it's not the government’s job to protect the people, why do we have the Military, @kilmeade?pic.twitter.com/w2MIlmnh49

There’s an abundance of idiocy in that brief exchange. It begins with Kilmeade asserting that everyone who has been vaccinated “should not wear a mask.” That is contrary to the guidance by most health experts and the CDC. Particularly in the midst of the rapidly spreading new Delta variant.
More to the point, Kilmeade’s tirade is reckless, heartless, and senseless. There is no rational equivalence between cliffing diving (a voluntary recreational activity), and COVID (a deadly viral pandemic for which nobody volunteers). What’s more, he includes his insistence that people should be allowed to make their own decisions so long as they “don’t affect my life.” Of course, the decision to not get vaccinated does affect the lives of the population at large because it increases the probability of viral transmission and mutation into more hazardous variants.
Finally, Kilmeade concludes with what he apparently thinks is the coup de gras of his irresponsible and idiotic argument. He claims that it isn’t the government’s job to protect people. He might want to check with the United States Constitution whose Preamble explicitly states as its purpose to “insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, [and] promote the general Welfare.”
If Kilmeade doesn’t believe that government has a role in protecting people, he must think that everything from the FDA to the EPA to even the armed forces are a heinous breach of government authority. He appears to be advocating for poisons in your groceries and toxins in your air and water. He is effectively arguing to disband the military and to defund the police.
Worst of all, Kilmeade and his confederates on Fox News are continuing to push for the rights of people to be inundated with lies that could result in their demise, or that of their loved ones. They are ignoring the fact that everyone has an impact on how the pandemic progresses and how much harm and grief it produces.
The only thing that Fox News and company care about is being opposed to whatever common sense health agenda is proposed by the Biden administration. It’s purely a partisan play that places politics above humanity. And it ought to make them criminally liable for the consequences.

The sad fact is that the more viewers their influence kills, the more likely sensible and responsible people get elated to public office and the faster the covid infection ends. Seems like a win-win for the Democrats. I have little to no problem watching the foolish people dive off the cliff into the sea.
Faux News is merely an element of Darwinism at work. Of course, their blathering does not make sense. Phenomena that act in Nature to eliminate the unfit and keep populations in check don’t “make sense” from a human viewpoint. The sad part is that innocent people will get killed, along with the suicidal idiots that choose to play COVID roulette with only one empty chamber. But that’s what happens among nonhuman populations, too, when natural forces begin to make adjustments. Doubtless, when lemmings run off a cliff, some bystanders that wanted no part of the mass suicide still get swept up and carried to their doom by the mindless mob. All we can do is try to get to those individuals before they get pushed over the precipice.
Kilmeade is WRONG. It most definitely IS the number one job of the administrations at federal, state and local government, whom “we, the people” installed through our votes, to PROTECT the American people–ALL of them. This is a PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS. It is NOT a freedom of choice or a political issue, because the refusal to get vaccinated AFFECTS other people–just like choosing to drive drunk or impaired also affects other people.
Be a responsible grown up and get the vaccine for your self and your children over 12. Unless you have an allergy to any of the ingredients, or you have an auto immune issue, get the vaccine and protect yourself and others. We will only get rid of this Pandemic if there are NO MORE HOSTS for the virus to reproduce and mutate into.
*ucker Carlson was asked if he had been vaccinated and typically he evaded and would not answer the question and claiming the question was too personal to be asked or answered. The curvy couch potatoe bunch most likely will not admit to being vaccinated and would most likely try to evade in answering as well.
“If you didn’t get a vaccination, that’s your choice. But if you did, like I did, and they did, and maybe you did…”
How long until the folks watching FauxSpews & listening to Rethugs lie their butts off… I mean, when will those being lied to & being advised by all these jerks NOT to get vaccinated, realize that the same assholes telling them NOT to get the shots, not to trust anyone else but them — THEY ARE VACCINATED ALREADY!
No way they’re going to risk their lives, or their loved ones, by doing what they’re telling everyone else!
