Many are speculating about why SOME conservative voices are suddenly becoming vaccine evangelicals, but this twitter thread presents some possible evidence as to why: Hospitalizations and deaths are running 50% higher per capita in Possum Hollar than in blue counties.
The anti-vaxxers are not just killing themselves, but they are also killing the new Republican gerrymander maps. If the Red Hats in a new district die off all at once, that district turns Blue by survival.
Sure, it’s speculation, but I’m applying the Noonan Rule:
“Is it irresponsible to speculate? It would be irresponsible not to.”

Remember: Republicans never do anything because it is the correct moral choice. They only do things for power and money.
