COVID-19 / Stupidity 

@cypnk bahahahaha. nobody saw this coming. Now the question becomes if yo can be denied a transplant for risky behavior lIke drinking, can yo be denied a ventillator as well? Just curious, at what point do they realize that the real problem is an economic system that forces you to have to work during a pandemic? 馃槀

@curufuin On one hand the criteria for triage is age, health, and survivability. But should an otherwise healthy and relatively young person be given a ventilator in favor of an older individual who got infected through no fault of their own. It鈥檚 going to be an interesting dilemma. I feel decisions like these are already being made in ICUs without us knowing. Doctors and nurses are human too after all

@cypnk
Of course he's gonna get a ventilator, he's evil and crazy. They're always handing out free stuff to crazy violent racists amd rewarding them in the west. Otherwise they would behave like normal people.

Like dylan roof who got burger king after butchering a church full of black people, including little babies.

white supremacists are still doing mass shootings... During the pandemic...

@kam During times like this, we must take care to not forget our own humanity. Lest we become the thing we despise

@cypnk
If you don't want a ventilator for you and your family and want to give it to a nazi, that's fine with me.

But suggesting I have no humanity because I would rather my elders (that have been trapped in their homes for months) be kept alive instead of white supremacists (who have been trying to target me and my people with the virus and openly disobey stay at home orders) is extremely offensive, hostile, and hypocritical.

I am a human being and so is my family.

@cypnk
I don't know what country you live in or what your economic status is, but I live in the west in a country with a failing economic and health system.

I did my part to make sure people are OK. They didn't, and because they have politics on their side they get a ventilator before me.

This isn't even mentioning all the human rights violations and war crimes committed against me and my people by them.

So again, you go ahead and sacrifice yourself for them. Thats fine

@cypnk
But don't talk down to me like I'm inhuman for wanting to survive.

I deserve life and prosperity. I don't hurt others. I will defend myself and my people. I demand justice. I'm not apologizing for these things.

I am a Human being. And a good one at that.

@cypnk Id personally give the old person that did nothing wrong the ventilator, seems like an easy choice to me, but I feel politically investted in that decision. If somebody went out to one of these protests, we should not overload the healthcare system to keep them alive and ensure their ability to make dumb decisions. If it were only up to mother nature, she would be less forgiving than me.

@cypnk at least he says he'll quarantine.. Lets hope next time he'll do it before getting it, and potentially spreading it to a bunch of people...

@jasper That鈥檚 the good part of this otherwise terrible situation. Just wish more people are as considerate before they get sick
