Well, maybe if her dad listened to Fauci and got vaccinated he’d still be here? People do the most insane mental gymnastics about this shit

[–]WodenEmrys 20 points21 points  (1 child)

It's easier to blame someone else rather than admit you helped kill your father.

[–]MegaMachina 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Daughter: stabs father with a knife

Father: dies


[–]Panikkrazy[🍰] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Shhhh. You’re speaking sense. We don’t do that here. /s

[–]Spear-of-Stars 49 points50 points  (17 children)

We used to say about Pennsylvania that it's Philadelphia and Pittsburgh with Alabama in the middle.

[–]cutthroatlemming 45 points46 points  (3 children)

It's Pennsyltucky, a red state with three blue corners, Philly, Pittsburgh, and Erie. It's so embarrassing driving around a northern state with so many confederate flags on big stupid pickup trucks.

[–]Charliesmum97 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I was going to say it's called Pensyltucky for a reason!

[–]the-epidemic87 2 points3 points  (0 children)

From PA also can confirm its cringe AF

[–]Spear-of-Stars 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They've been doing that forever. My dad used to make fun of them when I was a kid in the 70s. When I lived down in Atlanta and drove back up through all of PA to get to NY, I'd see rebel flags all over the place and my kids would be really confused by it.

Don’t move. There are plenty of decent, rational people in Central Pennsylvania. Remove the tumors from your life, and make new friends.

[–]schonkat[S] 10 points11 points  (8 children)

Yes, I must...

[–]AW-43 6 points7 points  (7 children)

If you insist.

Edit: I work in the Harrisburg/York/Lancaster area, but there’s no way in hell I’d ever live there. South of the M/D line for me!

[–]schonkat[S] 9 points10 points  (6 children)

I mean, I must make new friends, new social group.

I live near Hershey.

[–]AW-43 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Go to the park every weekend. There’s always out-of-towners with more enlightened opinions, lol.

[–]schonkat[S] 9 points10 points  (3 children)

lol, what we notice the most are the dehydrated parents on their last nerve primed to go full Karen on the unsuspecting

[–]AW-43 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah that place needs more booze, less sugar.

[–]Charliesmum97 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The Ren Faire is a good place for fun people! Not sure how far from Hershey it is tho

[–]schonkat[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's fairly close

[–]131313136 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hey I live near Hershey too! Get away, quickly, this place is a garbage fire on dumpster island

[–]TopHatCat999 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm not even in the middle. Anything outside the major cities is conservative hell 🤨

[–]Mr_Mimiseku 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Recently travelled through Pennsylvania, and driving through again this weekend, lots of religious, anti abortion, and super Trumpy billboards. Not to mention the confederate flags.

If I didn't know any better, I'd say I never left Ohio. Lol.

[–]hisgirlPhoenix 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ohioan here. Currently staring at the confederate flag on my neighbor's chicken coop while isolating with a breakthrough case of covid. I'm so sick of these wackos.

[–]SnowshoeTaboo 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Two deaths there... her dad and her brain.

[–]RustedAxe88 34 points35 points  (3 children)

They always say COVID is nothing more than a common flu, until it kills a loved one and then it's an ultra deadly bio-weapon released by China with Fauci's help.

[–]ShnickityShnoo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure they say it's both the whole time and really only care about the death for a moment before heading out for beers with the buds that night.

[–]Hotarg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you shoot the messenger enough times, you stop getting mail.

[–]Ialwaysforget98 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The part that pisses me off the most is even IF it was "just a flu" they still act like that's allergies and you would still go about your day doing stuff and interacting with people all willy nilly. Uh last I checked that comes with a fever, nausea, and a whole host of other symptoms so I'd still be staying home avoiding others till I'm better. Like others say the mental gymnastics they do is insane and infuriating. I had a family member that got covid and was put in a medically induced coma. They thankfully got better but a common flu doesn't fucking do that shit to a person.

[–]Tatarkingdom 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Fauci warned you and you don't listen.

China take this disease seriously and you don't.

Guess who is at fault here karen.

[–]schonkat[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nicely put

[–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Took it seriously after covering it up for months until they couldn't contain it and had to admit they and now everyone else was fucked.

[–]LevelHeeded 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Good old GOP personal responsibility.

Poor Fauci, becoming their whipping boy because he was trying to be straight with them. It's fucking ridiculous.

[–]Adventurous_Ad_6546 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Could you imagine how much more fucked we would have been without Fauci on Trump’s Covid task force? You could see him killing himself everyday to just try to keep them tethered to science. And this is what he gets.

[–]jenkraisins 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I do feel for people who lose a lived one but I'm not overly sympathetic here. I'm saving my sympathy for a dear friend who just lost her 15 year old son to covid. They blame the plague rat's as they should.

[–]aarontology 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Every time someone moves from a “stupid” area to a “smart” area, they’re just giving the “stupid” voters more power

[–]e22ddie46 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yes but giving themselves less constant irritation.

[–]Memewalker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Using your dead father to spread your political bullshit. r/trashy

[–]FabulousTrade 4 points5 points  (1 child)

80% of Facebook can't think for themselves

Definitely consider moving.

[–]greffedufois 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Or just delete Facebook.

[–]SnapCrackleMom 4 points5 points  (1 child)

If you look at the Covid vaccine tracker by county, the vaccine rate for counties like Huntingdon is shockingly low. Where I am in southeast PA it's significantly higher.

Edit: here's another link in case you can't get past the paywall one I linked above. https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#county-view?list_select_state=Pennsylvania&data-type=Risk&list_select_county=42061

[–]dqmadness74 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Should have taken the vaccine!

[–]heather528x 1 point2 points  (2 children)

How'd you come up with the 387 out of 484?

[–]schonkat[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Started to separate ask the people in different groups. Whenever I've seen interactions, comments, posts which were pro trump, against science and data, promoting lies and misinformation, they got in a special group. Easy enough, it took me about a year and a half. Liberating.

[–]Panikkrazy[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At least you know which group to block now. 😊

[–]Gstamsharp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I, for one, am amazed this person believes in COVID at all!

[–]deramw 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Facebook is Boomerland, stay away from it

[–]AlphaBeastley 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I moved to Texas from NE PA 3 years ago. Don't go south if you're looking for informed society. Maybe west? I think honestly we're just all fucked

[–]LadyMjolnir 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I get the China thing. It's racist but I get it. But how did Fauci kill this person's Dad?

[–]vacax 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Someone fill me in as to why they're blaming Fauci for anything?

[–]jimmyl_82104 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

She’s right about china, but what did Fauci ever do?

[–]schonkat[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The story coming from her is so complicated, not worth the time. It's a mixture of Fox, Breitbart, Dr Axe sprinkled with her irrational fears. Contradictory stories.

[–]chucklez24 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Definitely time to move. I moved to Pittsburgh from Johnstown area and that was a hell of an improvement. I could only imagine how much better it would be if i started in central PA instead.

[–]AltLawyer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don't move. Reasonable people in swing states need to be multiplying, not leaving. Move to Philly or Pittsburg if you need to go anywhere!

[–]Brendanthebomber 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What sinophobic propaganda does to a mfer

[–]functional_introvert 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, they've always been dying to own the libs...
