One Lump of Stupid or Two, Dr. Atlas?

What the Doctor Ordered

Sweet, sweet relief

Trump-Virus task force member Dr. Scott Atlas, who is NOT a virologist and is at best adjacent to viruses (probably having had one at some point in his life)  has distinguished himself again, when he twatted out a reaction to Michigan’s renewed Trump-Virus restrictions soon after they were announced Sunday evening:

…which seems to be pretty clearly a call to Possum Hollar to renew their efforts to oppose Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, which recently included, oh, you know, kidnapping and summary execution, before the FBI stepped in. Atlas tried to walk it back:

Surprisingly, his call to arms was not well received, and that charming finishing school in Palo Alto California was forced to take sides, and they whiffed it:

The Hoover Institute is a right-wing think tank and its roster reads like a rogues gallery, but that’s a whole other story.

But Dr. Atlas wasn’t done with bad prescriptions:

On Fox News, Dr. Scott Atlas encourages large holiday gatherings: “For many people this is their last Thanksgiving”

DR. SCOTT ATLAS: This kind of isolation is one of the unspoken tragedies of the elderly who are now being told don’t see your family at Thanksgiving. For many people this is their final Thanksgiving, believe it or not. What are we doing here? I think we have to have a policy, which I have been advocating, which is a whole person, whole health policy. It’s not about just stopping cases of COVID. We have to talk about the damage of the policy itself.

I anxiously await Stanford to issue another distancing statement.

    “I was NEVER talking at all about violence”; so WTF did “rise up” specifically mean? How did he expect such vagueness might be interpreted and acted upon by violence-prone MAGAt’s? Just spouting shit that he thinks his boss would like.

    There are doctors who do their work and there are doctors who are assholes. I was hospitalized for a few days back in September as a result of an accident, had a doctor make a casual comment to me that Covid would disappear after the election, implying it was being politically hyped. I just sort of stared at the guy in disbelief.

  2. . For many people this is their final Thanksgiving, believe it or not.

    So let’s make sure it is!

    Y’know, we joked about them wanting to kill off all the olds so the young’s could inherit all their munnies and they would’t have to pay for Social Security anymore.

    It’s not a joke…is it…

    I don’t know if Atlas probably having had a virus at some point in his life. However, I have strong* evidence that he has had and still harbors an active colony of brain-eating amoebas.

    no evidence (other than, you know, that total lack of thought process, brain waves and generalized higher thinking).

  7. I was having lunch at a place yesterday & at the next table over, people were discussing the COVID crisis (in response to the COVID news on TV), saying that it’s all a “hoax” & that the numbers were all “inflated” & that hospitals were saying that people were “dying from COVID” even if they died from some other thing so the hospital could get “COVID funding” … I asked for a box & took my lunch home, I couldn’t take the stupidity.

    I have severall nurses & a couple of doctors in my family & I know that it’s not a hoax.


    • MDavis says:

      I thought the whole hoax was supposed to be stopped once Biden won.
      Or is this “hoax” supposedly still ongoing until the election is certified, even though it can’t affect the vote, except Georgia, I guess.
      But good on you for taking your lunch away rather than hanging out in the danger zone.
