Death by Partisanship

In Pennsylvania, the Republican dominated state legislature was trying to pass laws to open up the state. They were telling everyone it was safe, and that COVID-19 wasn’t a threat.

What they weren’t telling anyone was that at least one of them had already tested positive for the disease. The Republican caucus knew, and they were even doing contact tracing and self-quarantining people that they knew had come in contact with him. Meanwhile, the infected person had been attending legislative sessions and interacting with other lawmakers.

But they didn’t tell any of the Democrats. So for days the Republicans were letting that person interact with Democratic legislators, who were then going home at night to their families.

One of these Democrats exploded in an epic rant. Warning, contains lots of profanity.

    Finally, a spokesman for the COVID victimized — and boy, is he eloquent!

    I wish I could be this articulate when I’m that mad. He’s right to be furious — and what a good job he does explaining why he’s right to be furious!

    Note Pennsylvania’s law,
    18 Pa. Cons. Stat. Ann. § 5902
    Third Degree Felony
    It is a felony of the third degree for a person to commit prostitution knowing he or she is HIV positive; to knowingly promote prostitution of one who is HIV positive; or, if the person knows him or herself to be HIV positive, to patronize a prostitute.
    Politicians have become prostitutes for Trump and are knowingly spreading a lethal disease, so should be charged with as felons.

    American corrupt capitalism, in the persons of the GOP, introduces biological warfare into politics.

    Ain’t ‘Muikkkan conservatives exceptional?
