The new smear tactic

Reader comment on item: Fellow Conservatives, Please Reject Conspiracy Theories

Submitted by Paul Gimbart (United Kingdom), Jan 18, 2022 at 11:04

Great article. this smearing of the mass of republicans as conspiracy theorists who one should not engage with is the latest "alt right smear", its certainly a minority with others dissenting as is thier right against mandates.this is a core "liberal and ethical principle". you forgot to mention the 2016 "Russian collusion" hoax or the "Trump vaccine is unsafe hoax" by Senior Democrats(which they would have propagated more if they lost). mentioning the high death rate among republican registered voters as linked to poor vaccine uptake and misinformation without taking into cognizance the fact that republican voters tend to older than registered Democrats and covid tends to kill the elderly is a cheap party trick by the left.correlation is not causation.blacks have the lowest vaccine uptake, they vote overwhelmingly democrat.they probably distrust forced therapy(maybe racial memories from tusgkee horror), while a lot of right leaning people won't take it because its being mandated. breaking rhetoric ethical foundations of modern medicine established after nuremberg(informed consent with coercion(threat of losing ur job), the right to refuse life saving therapy).

"you forgot to mention the 2016 "Russian collusion" hoax or the "Trump vaccine is unsafe hoax" by Senior Democrats": It's not that I forgot or am unaware of this. It's just not my topic here. As one conservative to other conservatives, I am asking for smarter opinions.
