Protesters burn masks outside City Hall in response to mask mandate

Even though this is Idaho, these local government protests even take place in blue states where do to open government laws, city council meetings have become an easy forum to rail against efforts to fight the pandemic and to push Trump talking points. In addition, because most folks are now reluctant to go to enclosed spaces, local government meetings are a safe space for Trump supporters to gather and reinforce their views that the pandemic is hoax and the officials are overreacting in order to hurt Trump.

32. Good point.

Maybe two.

I love science fiction, but if this were a novel, it is about this time that I would toss it aside as unbelievable. People would not be that stupid. Even in George Stewart's "Earth Abides", people were not that stupid.

3. What do you call a group of idiots

Idiots

Should arrest them all and have them do 100 hrs. in a Covid 19 ward at the local hospital (with or without a mask)

34. Great idea. Bet they'd be begging for masks in no time. Masks, face shields, gloves gowns,

everything their dear leader has made in short supply for the very people who will treat these selfish assholes when they contract covid19 because of their stupidity.

4. Positively medieval, we haven't progressed beyond this, esp. the US?

"We should have 'Freedom to not be bullied," straight out of con propaganda brainwashing.

Ok, have some freedom to die- but not to endanger and infect others.

8. They are not doing their research. The mask protects the OTHER people from your GERMS.

What next try burning you driver license. Then driving then VOTING. ON second thought not being able to vote might keep a ton of RWNJ home on election day and they won't need the masks either.

10. I can almost feel sorry for people who are that fucking stupid.

Almost.

They're going to be really sorry they burned those masks and that is going to be in the none too distant future. This thing is real and it's getting worse.

These jerks won't have that dawn on them until someone close to them barely survives or is killed by it, and by that time, it will be too late.

13. Idaho had 42% more new Covid cases in the last 7 days than in the previous 7 days.

That's doubling every 16 days or so. And it's accelerating, so it will probably double a lot faster than that. And double again faster still. And so on.

(% new cases is in the green block when you scroll to the right.)

16. I'm sick of these people claiming ownership of

the “founding fathers”, “America’s greatness” and what represents “freedom”. They don’t have a fucking clue, especially the moron who said”it’s time we stand up” and essentially push back.

Hopefully, and I really do feel bad about saying this, COVID takes care of some of them. Seriously, it is now about them or me and my loved ones at this point. They’ve made it so.

17. So many selfish, and stupid people in America.

I never realized just how many until the night Frump was elected. None of this shit shocks me anymore. I always knew there were a lot of just dumb folks out there, but didn't realize it was damn near half the country. We're pretty much screwed as far as controlling this pandemic because of people like the ones in the video, with their selfish behavior, childlike understanding of our country's history, and their willful ignorance about the need for wearing a mask as a minimum necessity for fighting a pandemic. Can only pray the experts find a vaccine and that we can get it out to the public as soon as feasible (and that they don't price gouge us).

20. How can anyone in their right mind...

still believe this is a hoax? Do they have to contract the virus and have a ventilator forced down their throats in order to believe? Just because the virus hasn't reached the farthest corners of Idaho yet, and no one they know personally has contracted the virus as yet, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
.
I keep asking myself, "how can people be so stupid". Then I watch the nightly news and see Donald Trump, and that question is answered. Donald Trump: The patron saint of imbeciles.

26. Amazing, isn't it?

People will believe what they want to believe, whether it's fact based or not. Those people are truly ignorant, and republicans have preyed upon those truly ignorant people since the Nixon administration. Whatever supports their particular bias is their idea of a fact. Like Kelleyanne Conway said, "alternative facts". There's fact, and there's fallacy, there are no "alternative" facts.

I guess we'll never get through to those people, so better to just write them off and stop trying to explain them. Carry on, Mr. Bill.

I can't tolerate the lies for very long, so I don't know, but I'm guessing that they're still denying the danger of the virus or something?

No, dipshit, they want you to wear a fucking mask and keep your distance. How is that anywhere near 'every aspect of our lives'?

Oh, they are so proud. SO PROUD.
