Medical Freedom Patriots

A scoundrel appears (27/6/2020)
Many people have misinterpreted Samuel Johnson's famous quote "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel" to mean that Johnson was critical of patriotism. He wasn't. The quote refers to scoundrels and how they wrap themselves in the flag to justify their actions.

Prominent anti-vaccination liar Larry Cook (or should that be C[r]ook?) has firmly identified himself as part of the scoundrel class with his new venture "Medical Freedom Patriots".

At least nobody can ever be unsure from now on about Cook's level of sanity or morality. There are only two things in the list (three if you count the redundant "Pro Medical Freedom" implied in the name) that have anything to do with medicine. The rest are either irrelevant to the conversation (God, prayer, Trump, political parties and the Constitution) or are signs of madness (Qanon).

But I'm sure that there are people out there who think that this moron has something worthwhile to say. And they will keep sending him money. It's sometimes difficult to believe that we live in the 21st century and not in some Dark Age of superstition and depravity.

Have I mentioned that you have to pay a subscription fee to look at Larry's new web site? Suckers aren't just things on octopus tentacles.
