Dangerous misinformation

Two days in a row letters, from older rural citizens have been printed questioning and ridiculing our country’s overreaction to this virus. These are valid concerns shared by many but toward the end of both the writers reveal their true spots by stipulating that the reaction and measures taken are a Democratic campaign “against our president and country.” Joe Machala “has a gut feeling there is something more behind this.”

Evidently, as the letters go, in their blind hatred of our country the Democrats have conspired with the CDC, the WHO, the Italian, the Chinese and hell, most world governments to undermine Trump. Evidently Democrats have no jobs, health or life savings to worry about.

And where would anyone possibly get an idea this ridiculous? FOX News maybe? For sure, but wait. After weeks of undermining and directly contradicting the nations top health experts, FOX is now taking this seriously and recommending social distancing/public closures. In less than 48 hours Sean Hannity has spun 180 degrees and just praised the president’s initiative against the virus.

But what virus? Remember the changes you see around you are just Democrat caused hysteria. You know what this means. The president and FOX news must also be in on the plot to destroy our president, economy and country. Like the democrats they must also hate our country now.

You might find this tongue in cheek a little ridiculous but perhaps instead you should be horrified by the unending, damaging ignorance spawned by our right wing media outlets in a time of crisis and otherwise.
