.'How difficult is this to understand?' West Virginia's GOP governor loses his cool over anti-vaxxers's 'crazy ideas'.

Republican West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice on Wednesday expressed exasperation with anti-vaxxers who are spreading misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccines.

While addressing the COVID-19 crisis in his state, Justice emphasized the importance of getting vaccinated against the virus while also slamming people who are scaring residents in his state with misinformation about the vaccines.

"For God's sakes a-living, how difficult is this to understand?" he asked. "Why in the world do we have to come up with these crazy ideas? They're crazy ideas!"

He then singled out one particularly "crazy idea" promoted by anti-vaxxers about Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates using microchips implanted in the vaccines to track people.

"The same very people that are saying that are carrying their cell phones around!" he pointed out. "I mean, come on!"
The difference between patriotism and nationalism is that the patriot is proud of his country for what it does, and the nationalist is proud of his country no matter what it does; the first attitude creates a feeling of responsibility, but the second a feeling of blind arrogance that leads to war.

.Letters to the Editor: Why do anti-vaxxers even show up at hospitals when they get COVID?.

To the editor: How about a very simple answer to the anti-vaxxers when they inevitably contract COVID-19? Just don't come to the hospital if you are in denial that you have the disease. ("Anti-vaccine patients vent anger on healthcare workers like me. It takes a toll on care," Opinion, Jan. 20)

If you don't trust the people trying to save your life, stay home and tough it out. If you insist you don't have COVID-19, quit being selfish by taking the bed of a person suffering a heart attack or, in this insane country, injuries from a gunshot wound.

Enough of your nonsense. You're keeping us stuck in this pandemic.


And as for Dr. Venktesh Ramnath, who has been accosted by anti-vaccine COVID-19 patients and their families, I'm sorry that you and your colleagues have to put up with these belligerent people desperately ill from this scourge.
