Delta variant having huge impact on vaccine effectiveness, says expert

How Does Democrat Party Properly Message to Rural White Communities

This is one trillion dollar question in the room right now? The reason why I am contemplating this question is that I consistently hear about rural counties in Oregon that want to secede from Oregon became part of Ohio.

I know that this problem is not fixable and given the scarcity of resources, it is extensively more efficient to target suburban and urban voters given that the amount of votes in urban/suburban area far exceed that of rural area.

However, one thing that you can do is try to raise a grassroots movements where people can learn how to build working-class polticial organizations in these areas. You can provide the tools and training for people who might want to take at the stab at this problem even it should not be the target of state/national parties.

So the question that I have is what type of outreach strategies would work and what we can do improve the situtation. I am know that these people will most likely to become conservative, but building a grassroots movement even with limited success can go long way to challenging stereotypes and other issues especially if it is homegrown.

Just my thoughts. Peace out.

I try to be empathetic to be people who have vaccine hesistant but welcome with this garbage

And that I get stuff like this

And then I say to myself, you have gone way down the rabbit hole, and there is no way that I deal with you. I am not an expert deprogrammer with years and years of experience excelling in deprogramming anti-vaxxers and expertly handling issues with trauma.

From my personal experience, people like this are usually 100% into alternative medicine. As a result, they would rather trust a conspiracy theorist than Western medicine without a detailed background check on conspiracy theorists.

They are the same people who talk about VAERS and the whole other issues. I think that I lost a friend because I talked about the vaccines too much. While attempting to be empathetic towards people who would naturally distrust vaccines, I often find that I am dealing with the conspiracy theories because these people put too much trust in a conspiracy theorist. After all, a conspiracy theorist will confirm their existing bias instead of checking to see if the conspiracy theorist's conspiracies are even remotely factual.

This happens when people are locked down for months on end and lose their ability to think because they get locked into their warped bubbles critically. And this remark is similar to the damn garbage you see on Infowars, even though the individual who wrote this post and Alex Jones are diametrically the polar opposites ideologically on almost every other issue.

And this is a second time in the last seven days that I had to post some BS post from somebody in my social network.

Fox Host Claims Fauci Lied To Congress, Calls For Prosecution

Fox News host Steve Hilton on Sunday claimed lied to Congress about the origins of the coronavirus and called for him to be prosecuted, part of a pattern of conservative attacks on the nation's top infectious diseases expert.

Hilton claimed the words Fauci used to describe "Gain-of-function" research in 2012 were exactly the words used in a progress report to describe U.S.-funded research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

As new questions have emerged about the true origins of the coronavirus, some Republican lawmakers and conservative commentators have seized on connections between Fauci and the Wuhan lab, drawing unsubstantiated conclusions that Fauci was responsible for funding the creation of the coronavirus that caused the global pandemic.

"Fauci Gate" And What His Emails Tell Us About Covid-19 And American Politics

Among them, Sen. Rand Paul has been a leading figure in helping to spread misinformation about the Fauci emails.

In early February of 2020, Fauci received an email from a woman asking if she should wear a mask while traveling.

As Vox's Anna North reported, "When people like Trump don't wear masks and make wearing masks a political issue, their supporters are less likely to wear them." It follows that when people like Fauci do wear a mask and are involved in suggesting rules about wearing them, these same people will be waiting for an opportunity to prove him wrong.
