Marjorie Taylor Greene Points Out that the Country Has Never Locked Down Due to Cancer Deaths

Okay, that’s it.

The nation just hit absolute rock bottom when it comes to GOP stupidity, right out in the open. What’s the old saying about best being silent and thought of as a fool rather than opening your mouth and removing all doubt? Yeah, well, nowadays, that rule applies less to mouths and more to social media.

Marjorie Taylor Greene has some figures she wants to share. Did you know that since we started tracking COVID deaths, even more people have died of cancer? It is true.

How do we not do something!! If we locked down the schools, the malls, restaurants, no one would die of cancer!

Of course, this is unbelievably ridiculous, the fact that a U.S. Congresswoman cannot figure out the difference between a disease like cancer and a contagion like a virus is really is hard to believe.

Did she shut up? Did she delete it? No, she had much more to say on the topic. It is time to take a different approach, she says. We need to work with the “facts,” as applied to cancer versus a virus:

Actually, COVID doesn’t “target” anyone, but to the extent that it hits vulnerable people the hardest, it hits the unvaccinated. And, of course, obesity and the elderly have a harder time fighting off any chronic medical condition of every type. When was the last time you went to the doctor and didn’t hear you needed to exercise more?

She wasn’t quite done:

4. To care about others & save lives, our response to #COVID19 should be working towards ending obesity, promote covid treatments that are proven to work, & stop the politically driven mass hysteria. Allow people to choose natural immunity or vaccines, w/o discrimination.

We are really tired of hearing about the poor plight of those “discriminated against” for being so selfish that they put our lives at risk. If they want to fight off disease with natural immunity, go for it. Why don’t they try the same with cancer?

Meanwhile, Marj, if there was suddenly a school district or a factory that had a mass outbreak of cancer, we can assure you, it would be shut down immediately until they figured out why.
