Offense: “Right now, there’s not enough data to support getting an mRNA #COVID19 vaccine (COMIRNATY/Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna) booster after getting Johnson & Johnson’s (J&J) vaccine.
However, people who received J&J will probably need a booster dose.
-Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene
Offense: “Pray for American missionaries in Afghanistan.
There are reports that some families may have been killed.
Islam is not a religion of peace.”
Offense: “Taliban is asking, not telling: “We are asking the Americans, please change your policy and don’t encourage Afghans to leave,” https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2021/08/24/afghanistan-kabul-taliban-live-updates/?tid=ss_tw”
-Rep Thomas Massie
-Daily Mail Online
Offense: “Taliban vow to tackle CLIMATE CHANGE and set out eco credentials amid civilian executions”
Offense: “marveling at Dick's== wow.. $DKS”
Offense: “I look forward to hearing from this hero who helped stop the terrorists on January 6th.”
Offense: “I was *very* upset at Biden over the last week. But the more I research what's happening in Afghanistan, the more it's clear that this is a ticking time bomb Trump *deliberately* slipped into the Resolute Desk before leaving. I'm no longer convinced much of this is Biden's fault.”
Offense: “Joe Biden is a Democratic president. Which means:
1. He has to clean up a Republican's mess
2. He wants govt to do complex things
3. He gets held to standards no Republican has to meet
Offense: “Vaccines alone are not a viable way to end this pandemic. We need to pay people to stay home.”
-Lil Nas X
Offense: “now that tony hawk has released skateboards with his blood painted on them, and there was no public outrage, are y’all ready to admit y’all were never actually upset over the blood in the shoes? and maybe u were mad for some other reason?”
-New York Magazine
Offense: “President Biden's political "fiasco" in Afghanistan is not a development that the media covered so much as one that it created. @EricLevitz writes”
Offense: “Gee, sorry to hear that! One less vote for the #Trumptards of the future! #COVID19”
-Brian Tyler Cohen
Offense: “Someone should ask him if he’d be willing to go and fight.”
Offense: “One of the most important structural asymmetries in American politics is that Republicans have a mass media ecosystem that always supports them, while Democrats don't”
Offense: “Thank a Biden voter for every death in Afghanistan.”
Offense: “Pray for those 4 marines so far that have lost their lives today trying to evacuate Americans.
And there was no American loss of life in Afghanistan under Trump.”
Offense: “Celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in March Through Time, a new experience in Fortnite Creative: play.st/3t1WZTb”
Offense: “While many vets are being outed as far-right extremists, one branch keeps popping up when it comes to neo-Nazis: the United States Marine Corps.”
Offense: “For every American who is killed, a city in Afghanistan should be wiped off the face of the Earth.”
Offense: “12 people died in Afghanistan.
901 died in in Florida yesterday because of covid.
And you're mad at who?”
Offense: “Hello @LeaderMcConnell”
-Mayor Bill de Blasio
Offense: “A group of right wing extremists just decided to throw families out of their homes during a global pandemic.
This is an attack on working people across our country and city. New York won’t stand for this vile, unjust decision.”
-SMA Michael Grinston
Offense: “Diversity is a number - do you have people that don’t look or think like you in the room? Inclusion is listening and valuing those people.
#WomensEqualityDay reminds us we’re smarter and more lethal when we come together as an inclusive, cohesive team. Our values demand it.”
Offense: “20 YEARS- FYI there have been terrorist suicide bombers killing civilians nearly DAILY in Afghanistan. This ain’t new. It’s why we are leaving. #DealWithIt”
Offense: “While the US military writ-large has a far-right extremism problem, mounting evidence suggests the Marine Corps has a serious neo-Nazi problem (and it isn’t new). My latest for @VICENews looking at the USMC and its links to domestic terror.”
Offense: “Again, probably A THOUSAND people are going to die today from Covid.”
Offense: “As we fight our way out of the COVID-19 pandemic, a salient question lingers: Are vaccine mandates justifiable from a libertarian perspective? j.mp/3sHU55v #CatoCOVID #CatoSCOTUS”
Offense: “Repulsive. If you aren't vaccinated and other people need an ICU bed, we should unplug you, throw you in the family station wagon, and wish you luck. I'd even throw in the ivermectin for free.”
Offense: “I'm reminded of the scene at the end of Schindler's List where we see those he saved and their children. He saved roughly 1200. Now imagine the photo that would capture the 110,000 or so saved and their children. "Whoever saves one life saves the world entire"”
Offense: “I’m proud of @POTUS and the incredible job he’s doing. He’s the right person for the job in this moment in history.
Offense: “Have you noticed how strikingly similar both the mindsets and actions are between the suicide bombers at Kabul’s airport, and the anti-mask and anti-vax people here?
They both blow themselves up, inflict harm on those around them, and are convinced they are fighting for freedom.”
Offense: “Donald Trump is the Osama Bin Laden of the Jan 6 terrorist attack.
It's time to #BringBackTrump to face criminal charges! #DonaldBinLaden”
