Media Hate Narrative: Trump Killing His Own Elderly Voters Could Swing Election

Media Hate Narrative: Trump Killing His Own Elderly Voters Could Swing Election

“tens of thousands of deaths projected from the virus, demographic shifts alone could be enough to swing crucial states to Joe Biden in the fall”

If you’ve spent any time on Twitter during the Coronavirus crisis, you may have noticed that some people on the left seem to enjoy fantasizing about the deaths of Trump supporters and how it could impact the election.

This comes from the same people who like to say Trump lacks empathy.

Now this narrative is even making its way into mainstream news outlets.

Christopher Cadelago writes at Politico:

Study: Elderly Trump voters dying of coronavirus could cost him in November

Mass casualties from the coronavirus could upend the political landscape in battleground states and shift contests away from President Donald Trump, according to a new analysis.

Academic researchers writing in a little-noticed public administration journal — Administrative Theory & Praxis — conclude that when considering nothing other than the tens of thousands of deaths projected from the virus, demographic shifts alone could be enough to swing crucial states to Joe Biden in the fall.

“The pandemic is going to take a greater toll on the conservative electorate leading into this election — and that’s simply just a calculation of age,” Andrew Johnson, the lead author and a professor of management at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, said in an interview. “The virus is killing more older voters, and in many states that’s the key to a GOP victory.”

Johnson and his colleagues Wendi Pollock and Beth M. Rauhaus projected that even with shelter-in-place orders remaining in effect, about 11,000 more Republicans than Democrats who are 65 and older could die before the election in both Michigan and North Carolina.

Note that all the people tweeting this story below are verified blue check Twitter accounts and almost all of them work in media. This is called concern trolling:

Newsweek has been indulging in a similar fantasy over FOX News viewers:

This crisis has caused some people to reveal a side of themselves that is downright ugly.

The “Democrat/Socialists/CCP Adherants” have moved from a Political Party to a depraved death cult.

    Was Jim Jones a Democrat?

    We have a “Political Party’s” whose main platform is inveterate hatred of one man. Its adherents would rather die than undergoe a hydroxychloroquine based treatment regime simply because the President touted it. A Michigan Governor who acts more like a wicked step-mother than a Statesman. One must conclude that this “Party of Science” is actually a death cult reveling in the destruction of America and its power.

      The so called “party of science” doesn’t really even have a basic understanding of science. The proved that convincingly when they told us that men could become women and vice versa and attack anyone who disagrees with that. If they knew any science they would realize ever cell in your body identifies whether you are male or female.

      I’m okay with this part.

      I’ve said for some time that the D party is the party of Death.

    david7134 in reply to dystopia. | April 24, 2020 at 12:23 pm

    If the virus is producing more dead people, it is an obvious plus for the Democrat party as this is their predominate demographic.

Trump’s swing voters in New York and New Jersey?

    Lanceman in reply to clintack. | April 24, 2020 at 12:50 pm

    Beat me to it. The vast majority of deaths are democrats in states Trump has no chance of winning anyway.

    And I have no problem with democrats dying.

caseoftheblues | April 24, 2020 at 9:27 am

If you are a Democrat you are either an evil ghoul or support and cheer on the actions of evil ghouls….history will judge you the same way it now judges Nazi party members.

healthguyfsu | April 24, 2020 at 9:39 am

Deaths of any demographic can swing an election because all of those people become Dem voters by default in the next voting cycle.

    That is my only fear in life… Worried that I might die before November 3 and end up as a registered Democrat again.

    MarkSmith in reply to healthguyfsu. | April 24, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    Well, current death as of today – 50,939. Amazing, 101878 votes mailing votes minimum. 1 set in Florida and one in their home location. Maybe another set in Az.?

My observation is that most deaths are happening in the blue state’s large cities. How many of the deaths in NYC happened to Trump supporters? How about Detroit, LA, SF, Detroit, Miami, Atlanta, or Chicago? I’d say that contrary to the Dims hopes it is they that should be worried.

Laying the groundwork for stealing the election. 1) Manufacture a crisis; 2) Create fear, uncertainty, and doubt; 3) Destroy a robust economy and people’s livelihoods; 4) Create dependency on the state; 5) Set groundwork for why numbers might not add up, rinse and repeat; 6) Create fear that voting in person will be deadly due to a second wave; 7) Minimize curatives, impose more draconian controls (wear masks everywhere!)…

“Elites go to war on homeschooling” What’s happening in Americ schools now is certainly not homeschooling. No parent is making lesson plans, buying books, or even teaching anything. At best they are monitoring their kids while they play video games on their school-supplied Chromebooks. Many of them can’t even manage that.
My wife is a 1st/2nd grade teacher. She spends more time now “teaching” than she did 2 months ago. She signs in every morning at 7:30 and I usually have to drag her away at 10 every night. She answeres emails from kids and parents and has to call the parents whose kids are doing nothing. She still has one kid who has yet to log onto their Chromebook.

    Yep, parents are mad because they now realize how hard it is to both babysit their brats and get them to do their work without any consequences.

      Plenty more of them are figuring out that their kids are not learning much while in school. Some of those are figuring out they can do just as good a job.

      More destruction of the Cult of the Expert.

        If they are working or are going to be working, then they don’t have time to do that. If they want to home school, that’s fine, but that doesn’t allow for more than very flexible part-time work.

        Your statement argues against the premise in the article above that this is, in fact, not home school (where parents are the content creators). Most parents are, at best, tutors right now with support from a full time teacher. Many are not even that.

          You have a deficit in your understanding of homeschooling.

          Plenty of homeschoolers are single parents working full-time, or have both parents working full- or mostly-full-time. Homeschooling is flexible enough to work around those issues (if the parents understand they can and get the support they need). There’s less flexibility in some states due to gov’t restrictions, but in just about every place, parents can make it happen if they desire to do so.

          Homeschooling does not require the parents be content creators. Not in the least. I know of one homeschooler who created their own content* instead of purchasing it or using what was freely available. (They went on to sell that content as their own curriculum – math – and made money with it long past the time they homeschooled.) There are conventions (well, maybe not this year) where curriculum can be examined and purchased.

          Homeschooling is handled in the home, at co-ops, at neighbor’s homes, online, and occasionally with classes taught at a private school. (Oh, and sometimes by picking up community college courses.)

          (* All homeschoolers must decide on a curriculum. Some do make up bits of it on their own. None make it up out of whole cloth. Very few make up even one area out of whole cloth. Even the most parsimonious, religious homeschooler uses old school readers and such, along with the Bible, to teach reading and writing.)

          healthguyfsu in reply to healthguyfsu. | April 24, 2020 at 3:00 pm

          You have a deficit in your understanding of pedagogy. Content creation doesn’t mean writing a textbook. It means designing lessons to present information and finding clever ways to assess on that information. Most parents that work 40 hour a week jobs do not have the time to do that. I’d love to see the flexible full time job that allows you to handle the schooling of a kid K-12 because that is a bunch of hogwash.

          If you really want your kid to be independent and learn life skills send them to a Montessori school for as long as possible. If they can hack it there with the balance of independence and responsibility, then they are set up for a successful life.

      BTW, if I understand your comment, I will partially agree with you. One of the biggest problems of parenting and teaching today is how many parents think their kid should just be able to grow up under the tutelage of experts without putting the effort in on their own.

      The parents who homeschool are usually the ones who are involved with their children’s education. They don’t just suddenly appear at the teacher’s desk one day demanding little Johnny be passed, because it’s un-possible he’s not doing the work. If they pull their kid(s) from public school they have probably engaged the teachers quite a lot and found them unhelpful or constrained by the bureaucracy. (There are lots of good teachers who aren’t allowed to teach good.)

      So, in this current stupidity, the parents who are well engaged with their kid(s)’s new predicament are the ones seeing homeschool as an option going forward. The ones who expect their kid to be taken off their hands 8 hours a day are probably simply overwhelmed and having difficulty coping. Then there’s a bunch of folks in-between.

        healthguyfsu in reply to GWB. | April 24, 2020 at 3:06 pm

        There is a spectrum, but there are a lot of people out there who have more kids and kid responsibilities than time. There are also a lot of middle class workers that don’t have the right type of intellect for teaching, even if its their own kids. For example, my dad was a savant at construction, but he can’t teach you how to do anything. He has to do it himself because he lacks the patience or capacity to explain it properly without being the one holding the tools. He is a great man, but most of our father-son projects are me begging him to tell me and let me do it rather than doing it himself (because I wanted to learn, not have it done for me).

          My Pastor’s wife home-schools their nine children. The second child is now in college, working on a BS that she will finish in two years, while working 30-35 hours a week. She became fluent in Spanish and is studying to be a translator. It can be done by the right person. I know that I would never have been able to do it with my two.

    nordic_prince in reply to floridaman. | April 24, 2020 at 12:51 pm

    A lot of people can’t distinguish between “homeschool” and “school at home.”

Haha! Whoops! Wrong thread and site!

Huh. It’s New York City that’s killing off their elderly population by sending Kung Flu-positive cases in to nursing homes. What is Trump doing?

Wish fulfillment fantasies. THIS is what the news has been reduced to these days.

Media Hate Narrative: Trump Killing His Own Elderly Voters Could Swing Election

Most recent tally of COVID-19 deathts:
Hillary-voting states 37,002
Trump-voting states 12,663

Note that in swing state Michigan, Wayne County, which includes Detroit, has a disproportionate number of COVID-19 deaths.

To paraphrase Sally Field:
“You hate me. You really hate me !”

Women’s studies lecturer worries a UK-developed COVID-19 vaccine will increase patriotism

Emily Cousens, who’s working on her PhD in “vulnerability and gender” and teaches a women’s studies course (at Oxford Brookes University and the University of Oxford respectively), writes that she doesn’t want Oxford developing a COVID-19 cure because researchers say rich countries will “hoard supplies” … and the UK will prioritize Britons.

    Oversoul Of Dusk in reply to Neo. | April 24, 2020 at 10:52 am

    The womyn makes a good point.

    To make everything fair, I think the UK should prioritize Britons who are NOT working on a PhD in vulnerability and gender. Maybe that would help poor Emily overcome any latent feelings of patriotism.

Oh, but their hearts are full of love!

They don’t hate us, they just want us dead.

As usual liberals celebrating death.

As individuals Progs are uncaring, as a group they are a sick bunch.

here’s a great use of a medias narrative to drive a story that doesn’t paint a protected person in a bad light, re Andrew Gillum
from cbs 4 Miamu
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – New photos and 911 calls have been released by police after former Gubernatorial Candidate Andrew Gillum and another man were found in a confused state in the room of a South Beach hotel last month.

Police said at the time they could not speak with the 40-year-old Gillum—-a former Mayor of Tallahassee—-because he was “too inebriated.”

I guess drunk and possibly injested drugs not becomes ” Confused”.

I might be worried about this scenario.. as far fetched as it may seem, but,, only if the Ds had a real candidate.

So far, they have Joe. So, no, no way, no how.. not gonna worry.

I thought the Wuhan virus was disproportionately killing blacks and browns, who are not very much behind Trump. Now the Chinese Flu is killing old whites, the Trump base?? Let’s get the facts straight!

A straw clown apology. Neither Planned Parent nor Planned Parenthood.

While there’s a certain fantasy element to these tweets, I think the real purpose of them is to convince elderly voters not to vote for Trump.

Could you just imagine the outcry if Fox ran a story noting the high proportion of COVID-19 deaths being of black people, and discussed the positive implications for Trump in Wisconsin? LOL
