They’re nicknaming it “Red Covid” now. It’s an alternate reality. My Hypothesis: Newt Gingrich was and is a HUGE believer in “Social Darwinism” and he did much to persuade Republicans since the 1980s, particularly fellow politicians, that it was the way to think and I don’t believe he would mind a “culling of the weak” within the Republican party, which would explain why the “red deaths” don’t matter to the leaders and why they convince their own party their deaths don’t matter as it’s part of a longer strategy to dominate and control American once and for all time. I hope not. But the politicians are so far removed from everyday reality I would not be surprised.
