They’re So Tolerant. As My Southern Aunt Would Say, ”Bless Their Hearts”

Actually, she’s quite liberal, so she’d probably agree with them. *sigh*

Allen West Has COVID and the Left Can't Contain Its Glee – PJ Media

“Love thy neighbor” is not a liberal creed.

Mr. West has chosen to take hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin, which don’t help everyone. However, few people are dropping dead after taking these drugs, though the left would have us believe otherwise. West is in the hospital and getting prayers and good wishes from many people — just not many on the left.

It’s been called “COVID Death Porn,” and the left is getting very good at it. Spectator USA writer Cockburn, who coined the term “COVID Death Porn,” explains its meaning and why it’s ludicrously stupid.

Cockburn will concede that when a public figure stakes their life on a certain medical opinion and dies a preventable death as a result, the irony is enough to merit a news story. But he would be remiss if he didn’t observe that standards for this sort of thing seem a tad inconsistent. Losing weight is another entirely controllable way to reduce COVID risk, too, but the same publications that gloat over dead vaccine skeptics have published a Pravda’s worth of takes explaining that COVID-related fat shaming is not funny and not OK.

Neither is consistency.

I feel bad when anyone catches the China virus. Less bad now, because we’re clearly learning how to treat it better. The fatality rate continues to fall. But I don’t make exceptions based upon their political views.

Does that make me better than them? Am I putting on my “holier-than-thou” hat? Perhaps. I don’t mean to be. I’m just saying that if your hatred of someone is such that you have glee when they are ill, then you are mentally unwell.
