How come the GOP, Fox and the like, and powerful interests want the C-19 pandemic to stick around?

Something is really creepy and I can't figure it out.

DeSantis is not stupid he has an undergrad degree from Yale and his J.D. is from Harvard Law.

Abbot is not stupid either both of them are well aware that their policies will sicken and or kill
people and continue the spread of the disease. And both of them have made the brutal political
calculus of keeping the disease going because that will give them and the GOP some kind of political
advantage. Can't give Joe Biden "a win?" Is this some kind of fascist plot that I can't put my finger
on but I feel it is there?

1. It's simple. Party before country, just like they've been doing since Reagan.

They want Biden & the dems to look bad, even if it means their constituents die. Repubs will blame the dems, & they know their constituents will believe them, because look at all the BS they've believed so far.

13. Republicans are also afraid their base will turn on them if they acknowledge science.

14. I think it's more like

"trump" before party or county!

They are all tying to gain trump support for the next elections, and they will do anything he wants in order to gain that support.

What they fail to realize is that trump is only in it for trump, and he has no loyalty to anyone else but himself. He is on a revenge tour to take down the whole party so he can make it the "trump" party. All the ass kissers will be thrown under the bus, sooner or later.

2. They want President Biden to fail. Blame the lack of vaccinations on Joe.

They are terrorists. Nothing less.

9. I agree...

...they want Biden to fail, and they want to keep the MAGAts and Qanon'ers voting for Cons. Their base is shrinking so rapidly that they need all the nutjobs on board to steal the next election.

3. The answer to your question is likely in their stock portfolios.

At least two of them (Death Sentence, Paul) own stock in companies that make theraputics used to treat COVID-19. They're going to keep this thing going as long as they can continue to make money off of it. I highly doubt they are the only two, either.

4. Initially, they convinced themselves it would kill

more of the “others” than their base. By the times they realized that it wasn’t working out that way it was too late to change course, hence the draconian voting laws being pushed.

7. Yeah, it's a profound finger trap they've set up for themselves...

Convince their base the 'rona is only like a cold or flu. Which they believe until they themselves or someone close catches it and suffers greatly or dies and tries to say they were wrong. But, nobody is listening.

Divide and conquer their own base is how it's turning out.

Because, they're not going to change any minds.

5. Power, money, and defund public schools.

Power: blame President Biden for the pandemic.

Money: Republicans have invested in new pharmaceutical Covid treatments.

Defund public education: Republicans want to withhold teacher salaries, defund public schools, and make public schools unsafe for students, staff and teachers while providing taxpayer funded vouchers for students to attend private schools.

6. K-A-O-S

They have been propaganized to "believe" that their diety--as defined by charismatic grifters with 1-800 donation hotlines --won't be making the earth scene a 2nd time until all the True Believers have given generously to the Church, Inc. and made a mess out of everything truthful, uniting, strengthening, and uplifting.

8. They want Biden to fail in his response to the pandemic, at least, that's how they'll spin it,

hoping that on Election Day 2022 and Election Day 2024 their idiot base will conveniently forget that it was the REPUBLICANS who made the pandemic 600,000 times worse than it had to be, the REPUBLICANS who demanded that the economy be opened up prematurely, the REPUBLICANS who downplayed the virus until their idiot voters believed it was no worse than the flu, and the REPUBLICANS who insisted that children go back to school MASKLESS.

10. Biden must lose for them to win.

Covid 19 is a weapon.

11. They see bad times as grifting opportunities and want that more than they care about others lives.

They want it way way more than any concern about actual people being able to live and breathe. So profiteering is first and blaming the Dems for the failure is 2nd. They see this as a 3 way win/win. Poor people die, more money from SS for the rich to steal. People get sick and the state pushes them to theraputics that enrich the r's - that's a big part of Death Sentence's plan. Then, bonus bonus in their minds - they will blame the Dems for the bad health while they are laughing on the way to the bank and to re-election. With all their traitorous anti-voting laws, they don't care about votes anymore, as enough state R's will steal the elections any and every time they lose. That is their whole plan, IMO.

12. They want to blame it on Biden so they can win easily

in 2022 and 2024. A GOP aide admitted that's the strategy. Kill people to make the pandemic look horribly managed, then blame Biden and Dems for it.

15. The current guess is that the Republicans hope to blame Biden for the explosio9n, never mind that

it is occurring in Red states and red counties in Blue states.

They will be crying, oh Joe why didn't you mandate vaccines and masks nationally and save us from our deliberate ignorance?.
