So Spain, right? The party in power is called the Socialist Workers’ Party of Spain. They are socialists. The president of the government is a socialist. The socialists are governing in a coalition with the far-left party Unidas Podemos. These are AOC-type people.
OK? Did I explain this well enough?
The Spanish government took COVID extremely seriously. They’ve put in some of the strongest (and often the strongest) lockdowns and containment measures anywhere on Earth. There’s nothing resembling their lockdowns anywhere in the US. Really serious stuff.
Is this part clear?
The result of all this is that Spain is now in its third wave of COVID mortality. Its overall mortality adjusted by population size is significantly higher than that of the US. And this is taking into account that Spain doesn’t have anything like the US obesity rates.
I know it’s useless to argue with people in the grip of the Trump Derangement Syndrome but I keep thinking they must have a kernel of rationality left somewhere in spite of their illness. Spain is one of quite a few countries demonstrating that blaming Trump for COVID mortality because “he didn’t take it seriously” is not just mistaken. It’s schizophrenic.
To people who are still not understanding what I’m trying to transmit with this post, I can only say that I’m very sorry for what’s been done to you.
