The Power of Propaganda

Jodi Doering is an emergency room Registered Nurse, working in South Dakota.

That’s right, she is seeing patients who are dying of Covid-19, but they believe the propaganda, misinformation, and outright lies spewed by Donald Trump and the right-wing media, that their last words before they die are that the pandemic is a hoax and that they will be fine. Their last breaths are not used to talk to their loved ones, or to get their affairs in order. Instead, they are angry and in denial about being told they have contracted Covid-19.

    J: there is no comfort in refusing to know the cause of one’s own death. The unknown is the ultimate fear, and these poor souls died within it unprotected.
