Deadly stupidity was on full display Friday in Minnesota, where MAGA-types held a rally outside the home of Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz.   No social distancing. Very few masks. Plenty of reckless, perhaps even deadly behavior. All of it was on display today in Minnesota, and all of it was encouraged by Donald Trump and misinformation network Fox News. (You can read more about that at the link below.)

Watch as the 2016 “F*#k your feelings” MAGA crowd holds a 2020 “F*#k your life” party at the governor’s house.

The crowd has grown throughout the afternoon. It’s a death cult.

I can’t help but notice a lot of these folks fit the criteria for those most at-risk. And look, I get it: This is frustrating for all of us. But until COVID-19 is contained, we simply cannot get back to life-as-usual. The disease will simply spike and spread again and we’ll be right back to exploding death rates. The number of deaths has jumped several hundred just since I shared the number this morning. According to Johns Hopkins, as of 3:47 PM ET on Friday, April 17, 2020, the number is 34,575 American lives lost.

These aren’t just internet cranks turning up for these rallies—some of the folks on hand are elected officials (Republicans, of course). Take Jeremy Munson from the Minnesota House of Representatives. He’s having the time of his life mingling with his MAGA pals during a pandemic.

And look, these super-duper, grassroots-y, not-at-all-coordinated with right-wing organizations MAGA-types already have t-shirts printed.

And in case you were wondering, Munson makes it clear he’s following orders.

From taking away health care to slashing food assistance to holding rallies during the most deadly pandemic of modern times, the Republican Party has fully embraced its pro-death platform.

This isn’t just a couple of cranks turning up. This is an effort being driven by the same cast of characters who created the artificial tea party nonsense. Click here to read more about today’s right-wing ecosystem and the eerily similar vibe to the 2009 tea party astroturf protests.

I worry more about the sky falling than I do about this misfits. What they give , they better be willing to take. Because I’m sick of trumps’ bullying and their BS. Like I said many times, like Trump they rely on fear. There’s no fear here. Because the God in me is stronger then their fat God in the White House.

From an outsider, (Not USA citizen) I think you are missing the point here. The base or Trumpers can see the writing on the wall, even if Trump can’t, they see how incompetently he handled this entire situation that the USA finds itself in and they also realize that it did not have to be this way, so what do they do, they go out and attack democratic governors for in essence looking after their constituents and attack the governors to rally their own troops because they can see that this is not going well for Trump.

Here’s hoping they all catch covid-19 and pass it on to their friends and families.

I am going to bet that the morons get away with their pansy parades once per state. The next time there is going to be some head cracking like in Chicago in 1968.

I commend IMPOTUS for getting rid of his base via COVID-19! Finally something he has done right. To bad they can’t see it coming. Truly the Walking Dead. SMH
